E. T. A. Hoffmann war in der Zeit der Entstehung der meisten seiner literarischen Werke als Richter am Kammergericht in Berlin tatig. Die Arbeit macht sich auf die Spurensuche bezuglich der Zusammenhange zwischen dichterischem Schaffen und richterlicher Tatigkeit. Themen wie psychische Erkrankungen von Delinquenten, der Ubergang vom Inquisitions- zum Akkusationsverfahren, das Recht des Konigs zum letzten Wort, Folter und Giftmord, mit denen Hoffmann sich in richterlicher Tatigkeit zu befassen hatte, spiegeln sich mannigfaltig in den Erzahlungen des Dichters wider. Dies wird insbesondere am Beispiel der Kriminalerzahlung "Das" "Fraulein von Scuderi" nachgewiesen. In "Meister Floh" legt Hoffmann die Einmischungsversuche der ministeriellen Burokratie in laufende Gerichtsverfahren und deren Forderung zur Bestrafung der Gesinnung bloss und bekundet ein neues Selbstverstandnis vom Richteramt."

Treating nuclear, biological, and chemical agent exposures presents a unique set of challenges. These scenarios usually involve multiple exposures, sometimes even mass exposures, from a single, often poorly-defined, event. Early symptoms are not distinct and can often be variable. Laboratory analyses may be required from environmental, often nonbiological, specimens. Scene evaluation and pre-hospital decontamination may turn out to be the most important intervention. Hospital resource utilization must be a consideration. Even the pathologist performing autopsies needs adequate preparation. It is with these considerations in mind that the Handbook of Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Agent Exposures was created. Taking a concise yet comprehensive, clinical approach to the treatment of these exposures, the authors provide concise information on radiation substances, biological agents, chemical toxins, laboratory tests, and antidotes. The book includes essays on topics such as Field Identification and Decontamination of Toxins, Bioterrorism and the Skin, and Mass Exposures Involving the Pediatric Population. A quick review of the contents will tell you that this book contains the tools you need when facing the formidable tasks of diagnosing and treating nuclear, biological, and chemical agent exposures.
