German substantive criminal law has been influential in many civil law countries, most notably in the Hispanic world. In the common law countries, not surprisingly because of the systemic differences in approach, its impact has been much less, if not negligible. This may be largely explained as a result of the language barrier. An up-to-date and reliable English translation of the German Criminal Code has been conspicuously missing for some time. This book presents a new English translation of the Strafgesetzbuch - the Criminal Code - in its most recent amended form of August 2007. The Code is the centerpiece of German substantive criminal law and informs the interpretation and application of any other criminal provisions which can be found in specific legislation. The translation thus affords an opportunity to profit from a legal tradition that has had a major influence over history and has a rich experience of doctrinal analysis. It adheres as closely as possible to the textual structure of the original, yet has been made palatable to an English ear. The author has been a prosecutor and judge for thirteen years in Germany and is a leading scholar of international comparative law.

About the Author:

Michael Bohlander had been a member of the German judiciary for over 13 years before he joined the Department of Law of Durham University in 2004. From 1999 until 2001 he was the senior legal officer of Trial Chamber II of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia. He is the editor-in-chief of the International Criminal Law Review, the General Editor of Studies in International and Comparative Criminal Law, a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Criminal Law and a co-editor of Beitrage zur Strafrechtswissenschaft, a German series of monographs on criminal law. He has published 6 books and monographs and over 100 book chapters, articles, essays, case comments, book reviews and notes.

Review:

...helpful for German lawyers looking for translations of German terms and definitions. Manuel Ladiges Criminal Law Forum Volume 22, 2011 The translation of the German Criminal Code that Bohlander has delivered is accessible (perhaps even more so than the German original) and also consistent, which in itself is a remarkable achievement...Together with his Principles of German Criminal Law Bohlander's translation will greatly enrich the legal discussion. They make a wealth of materials accessible to the non-German-speaking world...The German Criminal Code...cannot be recommended highly enough. Jens M. Scherpe Criminal Law Review 2009, 4, 308-309
