Of course, many factors, both internal to Germany and external (see Chapters 10 , 11 ) have influenced the development of the political system of the Federal Republic. Together with the prior-history and history of the Federal Republic ( Chapter 1 ), and the process of reunification ( Chapter 2 ), the most important have been the Basic Law itself, providing a constitutional basis for the political system, and the Federal Constitutional Court, charged with the task of interpreting that Basic Law. The economy, the division of Germany and the ‘cold war’ and the

approach to the analysis of any and all social developments, stressing the facts that the development of the productive forces leads to a change of socio-economic formations, the base determines the superstructure, and so forth. Such thinking is profoundly inadequate for the study of modern social dynamics. In any case, it has never been truly characteristic of Marxism, except for some dogmatic textbooks of the Stalinist era and the works of the most primitive anti-Marxists. What is paradoxical, however, is the fact that most serious scholars who

The books of the New Testament reveal little about the Ascension beyond establishing it as a Christological event: Christ assembles his disciples and somehow disappears from before their eyes. This reticence can make the richness of later developments seem surprising. The sparse biblical sources nonetheless provide basic themes for the Ascension that invite the creativity of the early Christian theologians who interpreted them. In their post-Resurrection accounts, the New Testament books focus most on the physical manifestations of

could claim to have discovered the necessary data to justify child-centred methods. The elaboration of earlier schemes of ‘normal’ development had built on discredited recapitulation theory, which postulated that the development of the child recapitulated the development of the race. In other words, as humans had evolved from fish to mammals to monkeys, or from ‘savage races’ to civilised Europeans, so

provides an overview of the development of ECR, simultaneously charting key aspects of Britain's membership of the EU and, in part, its forerunner, the European Economic Community (EEC); this is vital in order to place the research on ECR into some sort of context and wider analytical framework. This book aims to analyse what ECR is – what it stands for, who represents it, and what its main policy successes and failures have been – and the key route to achieving these aims is to start by explaining how and why British voters have never felt part of the Christian
