Text: English (translation)
Original Language: German
Written by a German lawyer, published in Germany four years ago, and now expertly translated into English...Hitler's Justice tells an ugly story of moral corruption and professional degradation...Müller's book can in any event help us to see that judges should not be eager enlisters in popular movements of the day, or allow themselves to become so immersed in a professional culture that they are oblivious to the human consequences of their decisions. (Richard A. Posner New Republic)
By presenting one horrific perversion of justice after the other, Müller effectively destroys one pious myth to be found in post-war legal literature--that judges never wavered from the positivistic tradition of German law and did no more than apply existing codes. (V. R. Berghahn New York Times Book Review)
Hitler's Justice was designed to accomplish two important goals: first, to bring before the German public evidence establishing the utter failure of the vast majority of the German legal profession during the Third Reich; and second, to expose the unwillingness of the German legal profession after 1945 to acknowledge and remedy its earlier failure. Müller deserves praise for setting himself these goals, as well as for accomplishing them...Today, Hitler's Justice speaks with particular power to those judges who struggle with the most acute clashes between their sense of justice and the law. (Markus Dirk Dubber Columbia Law Review)
