Praise for the original German edition: "A wonderful book. -- Uwe Wessel, "Zeit Online" Praise for the original German edition: "Brilliant... It's astonishing what [Markovits] unearthed... The history of East German law will never be written in a more readable or deeply likeable way ... or with such freshness and proximity to the subject. -- Michael Stolleis, "Frankfurter Allgemeine" This is a marvelous book. It is beautifully written--Markovits has a wonderful, elegant, moving style; and the whole enterprise is informed by a passion for understanding, a gift for generalization, and a deep knowledge of the society and its people. It is a delight to read. There is nothing quite like this book in the literature. -- Lawrence M. Friedman, Stanford Law School Justice in Luritz provides a fascinating perspective on everyday life in East Germany--its petty squabbles, its dictatorial character, and its citizens' efforts to carve out a space for themselves. Engagingly written and discerning, this is a major accomplishment. -- Konrad H. Jarausch, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
