This book comprises three parts, containing speeches delivered in 1992, 1996 and 2010 in remembrance of Frederick Alexander Mann, Brigitte Knobbe-Keuk and Werner Flume at the Faculty of Law and Economics of the University of Bonn. They provide an insight into the history of this particular faculty as well as – in view of the eminent statuses attached to the three late academics – into the history of 20th century law. F. A. Mann, who had emigrated from Germany in 1933, started as a honorary professor at Bonn's School of Law in 1959. His formidable reputation amongst the British and international legal scholars is built on his publications on monetary law. B. Knobbe-Keuk, whose origins lie within the field of civil law dogmatics, advanced fiscal law research in a way only few others, and no woman before or after her, did. As to Werner Flume, it is his exploration of ancient Roman law, his shaping today's fiscal and civil law in nearly all of its aspects, that makes him surpass all other contemporary legal scholars. However different the careers and characters of these three academics were, their work displays common traits uniting them, which this publication's preface aims to demonstrate.
