Atomic Energy Law and the right of life and health.


Hofmann,-H. (Wuerzburg Univ. (Germany, F.R.)). The paper is a review of the dissertation submitted for the certificate of habilitation by Professor Degenhardt belonging to the series of publications 'Law-Technology-Economy'. Beneath the somewhat- summary title Kernenergierecht (atomic energy law) there is hidden the first systematic treatment of all the fundamental questions of constitutional law, of general law and naturally of the special nuclear administrative law and of the law of administrative proceedings which occurred in decisions of different administrative courts concerning several nuclear power plants in the Federal Republic of Germany. Despite the plainness of his own viewpoint this impressive, sophisticated and balanced inventory is certainly welcome to all interested people and it is very useful for the further treatment of these problems.
