Reliques of Old London Upon the Banks of the Thames & in the Suburbs South of the River

Product : Reliques of Old London Upon the Banks of the Thames & in the Suburbs South of the River
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Originally published in 1899, this work details the buildings to be found on the banks of the River Thames during the 19th century. The following passage is an extract from its preface: ''THE present volume dealing with the old buildings along the River banks, and a few of the more remarkable houses of the past in the Surrey and Kentish suburbs, completes this series of volumes of Reliques of Old London. Yet the whole collection of ninety-six drawings forms but a small proportion of the subjects available for study by lovers of the past, for in the choice of sul^e6ts, I have been entirely guided by my own feelings as to the picturesqueness of the buildings and their surroundings, and have passed over many places which are of more importance from an historical point of view; so that this little gathering makes no claim to any sort of completeness as a record of the old buildings standing in London at this century''s end.''The River Thames takes its name from the Middle English Temese, which is derived from the Celtic name for river. Originating at the Thames Head in Gloucestershire, it is the longest river in England, flowing a total length of 236 miles, out through the Thames Estuary and in to the North Sea. On its journey to open water it passes through the country''s capital, London, where it is deep enough to be navigable for ships, thus allowing the city to become a major international trade port.

Ottoman Refugees, 1878-1939: Migration in a Post-Imperial World

Product : Ottoman Refugees, 1878-1939: Migration in a Post-Imperial World
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : In the first half of the 20th century, throughout the Balkans and Middle East, a familiar story of destroyed communities forced to flee war or economic crisis unfolded. Often, these refugees of the Ottoman Empire - Christians, Muslims and Jews - found their way to new continents, forming an Ottoman diaspora that had a remarkable ability to reconstitute, and even expand, the ethnic, religious, and ideological diversity of their homelands. Ottoman Refugees, 1878-1939 offers a unique study of a transitional period in world history experienced through these refugees living in the Middle East, the Americas, South-East Asia, East Africa and Europe. Isa Blumi explores the tensions emerging between those trying to preserve a world almost entirely destroyed by both the nation-state and global capitalism and the agents of the so-called Modern era.

Sacred and Secular Musics: A Postcolonial Approach

Product : Sacred and Secular Musics: A Postcolonial Approach
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : How does the sacred/secular opposition explain itself in the context of musical production? This volume traces this binary as it frames Western Classical music and Indian Classical music in the 18th and 19th centuries, laying the ground for a contemporary exploration of what is ostensibly sacred music in South Asia. Offering a potent critique of musicological knowledge-making, Virinder S. Kalra explores examples of South Asian musics in various domains and traverses a new cartography of music in which the sacred and the secular overlap. Drawing on examples which include Qawwali, kirtan and popular devotional genres, Sacred and Secular Musics offers new empirical material, as well as new insights into conceptualising religion and music, and the ways in which music performs sacredness and secularity across the contested India-Pakistan border in the region of Punjab. Through its deconstruction of the sacred/secular opposition, Sacred and Secular Musics explores the relationship of religion and music to wider questions of religion and politics. Its postcolonial approach brings Asia into the Western sacred/secular opposition, and provides a set of analytical tools - a language and range of theories - to allow further exploration of non-western religious music.

Description : The city of Fernum just became a metropolitan killing field. As part of the secret Judges Program, prisoner Elias Eli Walker Bishop has been turned into a cybernetic weapon. A genius with no past, Eli is given one very nasty power source for his new body: the personality of executed anarchist Eddie Zagan. When an uprising over a decade in the making frees the imprisoned Eli, he and his inseparable partner embark on a journey of blood vindication against Fernum''s ruling powers. Accompanying them is Millia, the woman of unknown origin whose blood has granted Eli the power to maintain his new body. The seemingly angelic woman is the center of the chaos swirling through Fernum. While Eli struggles to hide his bond with Eddie, he remains oblivious to the true nature of his companion. But Mayor Alistair Campbell and the rest of Fernum''s elite have more a few aces in the hole. Eli''s fellow Judges are on the hunt, as eager to defeat Eddie as they are to return Millia to Campbell. As Eli and Millia confront enemies both external and internal, the link between them becomes frighteningly clear. Can they make the cruelest of sacrifices for a greater good?

Hitch Your Wagon To A Star

Product : Hitch Your Wagon To A Star
Category : Books>Biography and Memoir
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : I am an aspiring first-time writer, a retired educator who taught children to read and encouraged them to write for over 35 years. As Jacqueline Kennedy stated, “There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all.” As a child, my fondest memories involved reading books and sharing them with my closest friends; I am addicted to literature! Therefore, upon retirement, I decided to embark on a journey to uncover the realities that made my mother who she was. It has been a fascinating voyage, and I am more knowledgeable about the history of the twentieth century now than I was during all those years in the classroom. My mother is not famous, at least not in the usual sense. Instead, she made inroads for other women, including her three daughters, which resonate to this day as trailblazers. The history surrounding her life is filled with incredible victories on a global scale as well as simply personally. Women were not appreciated as intelligent, able-bodied and purposeful beings except (sometimes!) in the privacy of their homes. Mother knew life for women had to change, and she internalized proclamations from early feminists such as Margaret Sanger who said, “Woman must not accept; she must challenge. She must not be awed by that which has been built up around her; she must reverence that woman in her which struggles for expression.” My manuscript, Hitch Your Wagon to a Star, chronicles a woman’s life from the poverty of the 1920’s through the years of the Oil Boom, the Great Depression, and an amazing emergence from those years based on the economy’s reaction to World War II. It continues into the Post War years of the “Red Scare” and the Baby Boom and culminates with a personal change that engenders a new focus and a second chance at life. Because my book is historically true and based on research, I am calling it a biographical novel. Names were not changed and are real. The heart of my book is the truth that possibilities exist and can become realities for those who are sufficiently determined and is based on conquering difficulties in the face of a daunting list of stumbling blocks. For the protagonist, her successes gave rise to what Henri Frederic Amiel described when he said, “Conquering any difficulty always gives a secret joy, for it means pushing back a boundary-line and adding to one’s liberty.

Analysis Of Existing: Barry Miller's Approach To God

Product : Analysis Of Existing: Barry Miller's Approach To God
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Miller''s metaphysics, including his approach to God, is broad, deep, and original, with the potential to make a fruitful contribution to contemporary philosophy. Yet it has not received the critical attention it deserves. Miller''s work deserves critical attention because of its thorough and original defense of three highly controversial positions: that existence is a real property of concrete individuals; that it is possible to prove, without assuming any principle of sufficient reason, that there is an uncaused cause of the universe; and that the uncaused cause is the simple God of classical theism. Miller''s position on existence is an important alternative in current analytical philosophy to what Miller calls the Frege-Russell-Quine theory, and the neo-Meinongian positions of Terence Parsons and Ed Zalta. Miller''s argument for an uncaused cause of the universe has been described one of the most ambitious theistic arguments produced by a well-respected, contemporary, analytic philosopher. Analysis of Existing: Barry Miller''s Approach to God is the first clear, systematic interpretation of Miller''s theistic philosophy.

A Miracle at Attu: The Rescue of CG-1600

Product : A Miracle at Attu: The Rescue of CG-1600
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : A Miracle at Attu: The Rescue of CG-1600 is an historic nonfiction account documenting the phenomenal rescue of nine survivors from a U. S. Coast Guard HC-130H that crashed on a logistics mission to the remote Coast Guard Long Range Navigation Station on Attu Island Alaska. Be prepared as you are transported back in time to a cold isolated mountain on Attu for a truly remarkable rescue. It is an inspiring and emotional story of human error, courage, bravery, and survival. It takes a special mindset to go into harm’s way and fly into the storm so others may live. You will come to know and see the many perspectives of the rescue through the eyes of the survivors, and the crews of the Coast Guard Cutter Mellon, LORAN Station Attu, Rescue-1602, and Rescue-1425. The author guides the reader to feel the tension, risk, and danger to locate and rescue the downed crew. Alaska and particularly the remote Western Aleutian Islands pose a unique and unforgiving operating environment. Weather is constantly poor with high winds, poor visibility, low clouds, precipitation, and high sea states. High speed vessel transits are extremely risky as there are no navigational aids and near shore nautical charting is unreliable. Helicopter operations are always risky due to low ceilings, limited visibility, high gusty winds, and steep mountains right down to the water’s edge. You will feel as if you are right in the cockpit, on the side of the mountain, on the Mellon flight deck and bridge as the rescue team works against all odds to save their fellow aviators and shipmates. About the Authors -CAPTAIN Bill Peterson- Peterson graduated from Vanden High School Travis AFB, CA, in 1972.

Persons, Parts and Property: How Should we Regulate Human Tissue in the 21st Century?

Product : Persons, Parts and Property: How Should we Regulate Human Tissue in the 21st Century?
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : The debate over whether human bodies and their parts should be governed by the laws of property has accelerated with the pace of technological change. Having long held that a corpse could not be property, the common law first recognised that there could be a property interest in human tissue in some circumstances in the early 1900s, but it was not until a string of judicial decisions and statutory regulation in the 1990s and early 2000s that the place of this ''exception'' was cemented. The 2009 decision of the Court of Appeal of England and Wales in Yearworth & Ors v North Bristol NHS Trust added a new dimension to the debate by supporting a move towards a broader, more principled basis for finding (or rejecting) property rights in human tissue. However, the law relating to property rights in human bodies and their parts remains highly contested. The contributions in this volume represent a collation of the broad spectrum of analyses on offer, and provide a detailed exploration of the salient legal and theoretical puzzles arising out of the body-as-property question.

Product : The Art of War in an Asymmetric World: Strategy for the Post-Cold War Era
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : The work examines the rise of the movements against globalization, modernization, and Western dominance that followed the collapse of the bipolar world and the end of the Cold War and that culminated with today''s global jihadist movements. It describes how the U.S. had to adapt to this new, asymmetrical world of conflict with its strategic, doctrinal and theoretical responses to the threats of terrorism and insurgency that defined the Global War on Terror (GWOT). Unique in the breadth of its scope, the book connects movements from the Zapatista uprising to Al Qaeda''s global jihad within a broader historical framework, connecting pre and post-9/11 conflicts under the unifying theme of a struggle against the forces of modernization. Featuring the works of key theorists such as John Arquilla, Thomas P.M. Barnett, Arthur K. Cebrowski, Jim Gant, Samuel P. Huntington, Robert D. Kaplan, David J. Kilcullen, William H. McRaven, and David Ronfeldt, this book bridges the fields of counterinsurgency, homeland security, counterterrorism, cyberwarfare, and technology of war, and will be a must-read for academics, policymakers and strategists.

The Holy Tudors: Inheritance

Product : The Holy Tudors: Inheritance
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : In 1502, the first prince of the Tudor dynasty, Arthur, died at Ludlow Castle of an unknown malady. In 1536, Henry Fitzroy, 1st Duke of Richmond and Somerset, died at St. James' Palace of a similar malady. In 1553, Edward VI, King of England, died at Greenwich Palace under the same strange circumstances.All three Tudor boys are brought together in the twilight of Edward's "death." They have been chosen to accomplish a great mission; to fulfill the greatest duty ever commanded, to guard and protect what has been in existence since the beginning of time, and the creation of man: The Holy Grail.In the dark stone walls of a hidden fortress, Edward learns the truth of the Holy Grail: its creation, its purpose, and the reason God has chosen him to be a part of the trio of Guardians that protect it and keep it safe from the clutches of man. Edward accepts his mission and joins Arthur and Henry as they embark upon a life of secrecy and sacrifice, all while watching history unfold before them.As the years go by, and the powers of the Grail sustain the three boys and slow down their aging process, they undergo the trials of keeping the Grail safe, and the sacrifices they must make to keep their mission a secret, knowing they won't live forever; hoping they will find more descendants from the Tudor line that can be "healed," and join the fight to keep God's greatest vessel away from evil."I am Edward Tudor. Guardian of the Grail, Servant of God, and once upon a time, I was King of England."

By August 1914, the British War office had moved 120,000 men into the town. Plymouth became the principal base for military operations and was one of the most important of the southern shipping ports.The town also played a vital role caring for the many wounded soldiers who returned home from the front.The effect of the war on Plymouth was great. By the end of the conflict, there wasn''t a family in Plymouth who hadn''t lost a son, father, nephew, uncle or brother. There were tremendous celebrations in the streets as the end of the war was announced but the effects of the war lasted for years to come.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Looks at how the Great War affected Wearsiders from the initial enthusiasm for sorting out the German Kaiser in time for Christmas 1914, to the gradual realization of the enormity of human sacrifice the families of Sunderland were committed to as the war stretched out over the next four years - including local Zeppelin attacks and experiences of those fighting for the DLI and other regiments.The Great War affected everyone. At home there were wounded soldiers in military hospitals, refugees from Belgium and later on German prisoners of war. There were food and fuel shortages and disruption to schooling. The role of women changed dramatically and they undertook a variety of work undreamed of in peacetime. Meanwhile, men serving in the armed forces were scattered far and wide. Extracts from contemporary letters reveal their heroism and give insights into what it was like under battle conditions.

Risks and Legal Theory

Product : Risks and Legal Theory
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : In almost every field of law,from tort and contract to environmental law and criminal justice, issues about ''risk'' are increasingly of interest to lawyers. At the same time, there has been little general enquiry into the nature of the contact between law and risks. This book argues that ideas about risk have not traditionally been absent from law, as is sometimes supposed. Lawyers and legal theorists have used and conceptualised risk in particular ways, and ideas of risk have had significant influence in key elements of legal theory including questions of justice and responsibility. The book explores the conceptual place of risk across a number of fields of law; and identifies some significant challenges for law and legal theory arising from broader debates about risk. It therefore sheds light on areas that are under-explored despite current interest among lawyers, and aims to provide an accessible guide to emerging controversies and challenges for law in this area while explaining their significance.

Labour Laws and Global Trade

Product : Labour Laws and Global Trade
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : The focus of globalisation studies is on how global processes can be better regulated in order to deliver both economic growth and social justice. Labour laws provide an excellent case study of the creation of a new framework to reconcile free trade and investment with social objectives. This book,written by a leading authority on international and comparative labour law, provides a thoughtful and comprehensive analysis of the new methods of transnational labour regulation that are emerging in response to globalisation. The author reassesses orthodox views, from the viewpoint of a theory of comparative institutional advantage, and suggests ways in which transnational regulation can be re-invented in the new global economy This will be of interest to students of law, human rights, industrial relations, globalisation, international trade and development, as well as policy-makers in international and regional organisations, governments, employers'' bodies, trade unions and NGOs.

Criminal Policy in Transition

Product : Criminal Policy in Transition
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Criminal Policy in Transition comes along at a time when the literature in criminology is desperately short of global perspectives. It helps fill that gap while it presents important new insights into changing penal policy and practice. That it raises as many questions as it seems to answer is one of its great strengths. The authors write knowledgeably about their home societies without being prematurely bounded by comparative criteria. As a result,they develop a complex and uneven image of similarities and differences, of divergence and convergence through time. In this sense the collection offers a model of how international collaborative work should proceed. The book is the product of a workshop held at the International Institute for the Sociology of Law (IISL) in Onati, Spain. The IISL is a partnership between the Research Committee on the Sociology of Law and the Basque Government

Are European citizens and third country nationals who have moved to other Member States entitled to claim minimum subsistence benefits,to receive medical care or to be admitted to education? Does Community law provide for a freedom of movement for patients, students and persons in need of social welfare benefits? If so, to what extent does Community law have regard for the Member States'' fears for, and concerns about, welfare tourism? Besides addressing numerous detailed questions on the precise degree to which Community law allows for cross-border access to public services, the author analyses how Community law, and the Court of Justice in particular, have sought to reconcile the Community''s objectives of realising freedom of movement and ensuring equality of treatment with the need to develop and maintain adequate social services within the Community. In addition, the book contains a detailed analysis of United States constitutional law on cross-border access to public services, exploring the question whether the European Community can possibly learn from the American experience.

Rethinking the Masters of Comparative Law

Product : Rethinking the Masters of Comparative Law
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Comparative Law is experiencing something of a renaissance,as legal scholars and practitioners traditionally outside the discipline find it newly relevant in projects such as constitution and code drafting, the harmonization of laws, court decisions, or as a tool for understanding the globalization of legal institutions. On the other hand, comparativists within the discipline find themselves asking questions about the identity of comparative law, what it is that makes comparative law unique as a discipline, what is the way forward. This book, designed with courses in comparative law as well as scholarly projects in mind, brings a new generation of comparativists together to reflect on the character of their discipline. It aims to incite curiosity and debate about contemporary issues within comparative law by bringing the discipline into conversation with debates in anthropology, literary and cultural studies, and critical theory. The book addresses questions such as what is the disciplinary identity of comparative law; how should we understand its relationship to colonialism, modernism, the Cold War, and other wider events that have shaped its history; what is its relationship to other projects of comparison in the arts, social sciences and humanities; and how has comparative law contributed at different times and in different parts of the world to projects of legal reform. Each of the essays frames its intervention around a close reading of the life and work of one formative character in the history of the discipline. Taken as a whole, the book offers a fresh and sophisticated picture of the discipline and its future. Contents: Montesquieu: the specter of despotism and the origins of comparative law (Robert Launay); Max Weber and the uncertainties of categorical comparative law (Ahmed White); Rethinking Hermann Kantorowicz: Free law, American legal realism and the legacy of anti-formalism (Vivian Grosswald Curran); Encountering amateurism: John Henry Wigmore and the uses of American formalism (Annelise Riles); Nobushige Hozumi: A skillful transplanter of western legal thought into Japanese soil (Hitoshi Aoki); Sanhuri, comparative law and Islamic legal reform, or why cultural authenticity is impossible (Amr Shalakany); Sculpting the agenda of comparative law: Ernst Rabel and the facade of language (David J. Gerber); Ren? David: At the head of the family (Jorge L. Esquirol); Postmodern-Structural Comparative Jurisprudence? The aggregate impact of R. B. Schlesinger and R. Sacco to the understanding of the legal order (Ugo Mattei).

The Court Of Appeal

Product : The Court Of Appeal
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Civil justice has been undergoing a massive transformation. There have been big changes in the management of judicial business; the Human Rights Act 1988 has had a pervasive impact; the Constitutional Reform Act 2005 has effected many changes - notably, the prospective transfer of the appellate jurisdiction of the House of Lords to a new Supreme Court. Against this backcloth of radical change, this book looks at the recent history and the present-day operation of the civil division of the Court of Appeal - a court that, despite its pivotal position, has attracted surprisingly little scholarly attention. It examines the impact of the permission to appeal requirements, and the way in which applications - particularly those by litigants in person - are handled; it looks at the working methods of the Lords Justices and at the leadership of the Court by recent Masters of the Rolls; it considers the relationship between the Court and the House of Lords - looking at high-profile cases in which the Court has been reversed by the Lords. Notwithstanding the impending arrival of the Supreme Court, it concludes that ''the Court of Appeal will remain firmly in place, occupying its crucial position as, to all intents and purposes, the court of last resort-indeed, a supreme court-for most civil appellants.''

Human Rights Brought Home: Socio-Legal Perspectives of Human Rights in the National Context

Product : Human Rights Brought Home: Socio-Legal Perspectives of Human Rights in the National Context
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : What practical impact does the incorporation of international human rights standards into domestic law have? This collection of essays explores human rights in domestic legal systems. The enactment of the Human Rights Act in 1998, ushering the European Convention on Human Rights fully into UK law, represented a landmark in the UK constitutional order. Other European states similarly have elevated the status of human rights in their domestic legal systems. However, whilst much has been written about doctrinal legal developments, little is yet known about the empirical effects of bringing rights home. This collection of essays, written by a range of distinguished socio-legal scholars, seeks to fill this gap in our knowledge. The essays, presenting new empirical research, begin their enquiry where many studies in human rights finish. The contributors do not stop at the recognition of international law and norms by states, but penetrate the internal workings of domestic legal systems to see the law in action - - as it is developed, contested, manipulated, or even ignored by actors such as judges, lawyers, civil servants, interest groups, and others. This distinctly socio-legal approach offers a unique contribution to the literature on human rights, exploring human rights law-in-action in developed countries. In doing so, it demonstrates the importance of looking beyond grand generalities and the hopes of international human rights law in order to understand the impact of the global human rights movement.

With Malice Aforethought: A Study of the Crime and Punishment for Homicide

Product : With Malice Aforethought: A Study of the Crime and Punishment for Homicide
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : For more than three centuries the criminal law has given rise to a divergent set of approaches to the crime of homicide. Whereas the law of murder has not conceptually changed,the crime of manslaughter has resulted in some forms of homicide being visited with relatively minor penalties. These various categories of unlawful killing present considerable problems relating to intention, or lack of it, and the culpability of those whose behaviour, while lacking in evident malice, is characterised by the grossest recklessness. The reaction of the relatives of victims is generally simpler. They frequently find it impossible to understand how those who kill by dangerous or drunken driving may receive comparatively lenient sentences, while those convicted of manslaughter following a drunken brawl may be dealt with more severely, and yet others, convicted of so-called ''mercy killings'', are subject to the mandatory penalty of life imprisonment. This book addresses the powerful and controversial arguments for the current distinctions between murder, manslaughter and other specific categories of crime to be abolished and subsumed within a single crime of culpable homicide. In the course of this analysis the authors consider a number of issues of great contemporary importance, including the presentation of expert evidence in cases involving unexplained infant death, corporate killing, and the question of the defences available to the accused, including self-defence and provocation, where popular notions of what is reasonable or justifiable may be at variance with legal precedent. While this book aims to consider criminal homicide in its social, historical and legal setting, it also goes far beyond in setting out the case for radical reform.

The Constitution Of Private Governance: Product Standards in the Regulation of Integrating Markets

Product : The Constitution Of Private Governance: Product Standards in the Regulation of Integrating Markets
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : In quantity and importance, private standards are rapidly taking over the role of public norms in the international and national regulation of product safety. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the rise, role and status of these private product safety standards in the legal regulation of integrating markets. In international and regional trade law as in European and American constitutional and administrative law, tort law and antitrust law, the book analyses the ways in which legal systems can and do recognise private norms as ''law.'' This sociological question of law''s recognition of private governance is indissolubly connected with a normative question of democratic theory: can law recognize legal validity and democratic legitimacy outside the constitution, without constitutional political institutions and beyond the nation state? Or: can law ''constitute'' private transnational governance? The book offers the first systematic treatment of European, American and international ''standards law'' in the English language, and makes a significant contribution to the study of the processes of globalization and privatization in social and legal theory. For the thesis on which this book was based Harm Schepel was awarded the first EUI Alumni Prize for the best interdisciplinary and/or comparative thesis on European issues written at the EUI in recent years.

EU Criminal Law

Product : EU Criminal Law
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : EU Criminal Law is perhaps the fastest-growing area of EU law. It is also one of the most contested fields of EU action, covering measures which have a significant impact on the protection of fundamental rights and the relationship between the individual and the State, while at the same time presenting a challenge to State sovereignty in the field and potentially reconfiguring significantly the relationship between Member States and the EU. The book will examine in detail the main aspects of EU criminal law, in the light of these constitutional challenges. These include: the history and institutions of EU criminal law (including the evolution of the third pillar and its relationship with EC law); harmonisation in criminal law and procedure (with emphasis on competence questions); mutual recognition in criminal matters (including the operation of the European Arrest Warrant) and accompanying measures; action by EU bodies facilitating police and judicial co-operation in criminal matters (such as Europol, Eurojust and OLAF); the collection and exchange of personal data, in particular via EU databases and co-operation between law enforcement authorities; and the external dimension of EU action in criminal matters, including EU-US counter-terrorism co-operation. The analysis is forward-looking, taking into account the potential impact of the Lisbon Treaty on EU criminal law.

Landmark Cases in the Law of Restitution

Product : Landmark Cases in the Law of Restitution
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : It is now well established that the law of unjust enrichment forms an important and distinctive part of the English law of obligations. Restitutionary awards for unjust enrichment and for wrongdoing are clearly recognised for what they are. But these are recent developments. Before the last decade of the twentieth century the very existence of a separate law of unjust enrichment was controversial, its scope and content matters of dispute. In this collection of essays, a group of leading scholars look back and reappraise some of the landmark cases in the law of restitution. They range from the early seventeenth century to the mid-twentieth century, and shed new light on some classic decisions. Some argue that the importance of their case has been overstated; others, that it has been overlooked, or misconceived. All persuasively invite the reader to think again about some well-known authorities. The book is an essential resource for anyone, scholar, student or practitioner, with an interest in this fascinating area of the law.

Property Rights and Natural Resources

Product : Property Rights and Natural Resources
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Winner of the SLS Peter Birks Prize for Outstanding Legal Scholarship 2009. The use of private property rights to regulate natural resources is a controversial topic because it touches upon two critical issues: the allocation of wealth in society and the conservation and management of limited resources. This book explores the extension of private property rights and market mechanisms to natural resources in international areas from a legal perspective. It uses marine fisheries to illustrate the issues that can arise in the design of regulatory regimes for natural resources. If property rights are used to regulate natural resources then it is essential that we understand how the law and values embedded within legal systems shape the development and operation of property rights in practice. The author constructs a version of property that articulates both the private and public function of property. This restores some much needed balance to property discourse. He also assesses the impact of international law on the use of property rights-a much neglected topic-and shows how different legal and socio-political values that inhere in different legal regimes fundamentally shape the construction of property rights. Despite the many claimed benefits to be had from the use of private property rights-based management systems, the author warns against an uncritical acceptance of this approach and, in particular, questions whether private property rights are the most suitable and effective arrangement of regulating of natural resources. He suggests that much more complex forms of holding, such as stewardship, may be required to meet physical, legal and moral imperatives associated with natural resources.

Modern Sports Law: A Textbook

Product : Modern Sports Law: A Textbook
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : The aim of this book is to provide an account of how the law influences the operation, administration and playing of modern sports. Although the book focuses on legal doctrine it has been written bearing in mind sport''s historical, cultural, social and economic context, including the drama and colour of sport''s major events and leading personalities. And although it is inevitably very much concerned with elite professional sports it is not dominated by them, and seeks to cover the widest possible range of sports, professional and amateur. Initially, the book addresses practical issues such as the structures of national and international sport, and examines the evolution of the body of law known as ''sports law''. Thereafter three main themes are identified: regulatory; participatory; and financial aspects of modern sport. The regulatory theme is dealt with in chapters considering the manner in which decisions of sports governing bodies may be challenged in the ordinary courts and the development of alternative dispute resolution mechanisms in sport. The participatory theme includes the legal regulation of doping and violence in sport, as well as the broader topic of tortious liability for sporting injuries. The financial theme, reflecting the enhanced commercialisation of sport at all levels, is developed in chapters concerning issues in applied contract and employment law for players and legal matters surrounding the organisation of major sports events. The conclusion summarises modern sport''s experience of EU law, pointing the way to the future direction of sports law more generally. While the book is aimed primarily at students, and is designed to cover fundamental and topical areas of sports law (sports law in general; sports bodies and the courts; arbitration in sport; corruption; doping; violence; civil liability; discrimination; the commodification of modern sport; and the likely future of sports law), it should also prove of wider interest to practitioners, sports administrators and governing bodies; and though focused primarily on UK law it will also appeal to readers in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the USA.

Product : Administrative Law in a Changing State: Essays in Honour of Mark Aronson
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : This book of essays celebrates Mark Aronson''s contribution to administrative law. As joint author of the leading Australian text on judicial review of administrative action, Aronson''s work is well-known to public lawyers throughout the common law world and this is reflected in the list of contributors from the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the UK. The introduction comes from Justice Michael Kirby of the High Court of Australia. The essays reflect Aronson''s interests in judicial review, non-judicial grievance mechanisms, problems of proof and evidence, and the boundaries of public and private law. Amongst the contributors, Peter Cane, Elizabeth Fisher, and Linda Pearson write on administrative adjudication and decision-making, Anita Stuhmcke writes on Ombudsmen, and Robin Creyke and John McMillan, the Commonwealth Ombudsman, write on charters, codes and ''soft law''. There are evaluations of the profound influence of human rights law on judicial review from the UK by Sir Jack Beatson and Thomas Poole and from Canada by David Mullan. Matthew Groves and Chief Justice James Spigelman address developing themes in judicial review, while Carol Harlow, Richard Rawlings, Michael Taggart and Janet McLean follow Aronson''s interests into the private side of public law. An American perspective is added by Alfred Aman and Jack Beermann.

Law and Opinion in Scotland during the Seventeenth Century

Product : Law and Opinion in Scotland during the Seventeenth Century
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : In Britain at least, changes in the law are expected to be made by the enactment of statutes or the decision of cases by senior judges. Lawyers express opinions about the law but do not expect their opinions to form part of the law. It was not always so. This book explores the relationship between the opinions expressed by lawyers and the development of the law of Scotland in the century preceding the parliamentary union with England in 1707, when it was decided that the private law of Scotland was sufficiently distinctive and coherent to be worthy of preservation. Credit for this surprising decision, which has resulted in the survival of two separate legal systems in Britain, has often been given to the first Viscount Stair, whose Institutions of the Law of Scotland had appeared in a revised edition in 1693. The present book places Stair''s treatise in historical context and asks whether it could have been his intention in writing to express the type of authoritative opinions that could have been used to consolidate the emerging law, and whether he could have been motivated in writing by a desire to clarify the relationship between the laws of Scotland and England. In doing so the book provides a fresh account of the literature and practice of Scots law in its formative period and at the same time sheds light on the background to the 1707 union. It will be of interest to legal historians and Scots lawyers, but it should also be accessible to lay readers who wish to know more about the law and legal history of Scotland

Private Law and the Value of Choice

Product : Private Law and the Value of Choice
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Some say that private law ought to correct wrongs or to protect rights. Others say that private law ought to maximise social welfare or to minimise social cost. In this book, Emmanuel Voyiakis claims that private law ought to make our responsibilities to others depend on the opportunities we have to affect how things will go for us. Drawing on the work of HLA Hart and TM Scanlon, he argues that private law principles that require us to bear certain practical burdens in our relations with others are justified as long as those principles provide us with certain opportunities to choose what will happen to us, and having those opportunities is something we have reason to value. The book contrasts this ''value-of-choice'' account with its wrong- and social cost-based rivals, and applies it to familiar problems of contract and tort law, including whether liability should be negligence-based or stricter; whether insurance should matter in the allocation of the burden of repair; how far private law should make allowance for persons of limited capacities; when a contract term counts as ''unconscionable'' or ''unfair''; and when tort law should hold a person vicariously liable for another''s mistakes.

Governing Independence and Expertise: The Business of Housing Associations

Product : Governing Independence and Expertise: The Business of Housing Associations
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Shortlisted for the SLSA-Hart Socio-Legal Book Prize 2011 Governing, Independence and Expertise tells the story of the not-for-profit housing sector in England, focusing on its representative body, the National Housing Federation. The story tells of how the Federation and associations influenced their own space of governing through deploying discourses of independence and expertise; how being governed, and governing, become, at times, one and the same. The National Federation of Housing Societies was born in 1935 out of the apparent failure of housing societies, associations and charitable trusts to tackle the ''problem of the slums''. Its story was a familiar one - organisations have often set up collective structures to facilitate intervention in government. Viewed historically the success of the project is, nevertheless, remarkable, given that the housing association sector is now a major force in social housing provision. Moreover housing associations have pioneered many programmes which are central to our ''modernised'' welfare state - such as private finance, independence and entrepreneurialism. Through the story of the Federation, the book examines the role of non-governmental actors in mechanisms of governing, engaging contemporary debates about public services and the nature of the ''social'' - the limits of the role of the not-for-profit sector; the impact of private funders; and the disappearance of the notion of ''public''.

British Airships 1905-30

Product : British Airships 1905-30
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : At a time when German U-Boats were ruthlessly attacking the maritime convoys engaged in bringing essential supplies to British shores, British airships played a vital role in neutralizing this danger and were crucial in enabling Britain to eventually emerge victorious. In 1907 the British Army built the military''s first airship, and at the outbreak of World War I there were a total of seven airships under control of the Admiralty, hunting U-Boats from the skies. This book reveals the fascinating story of the cat and mouse duel between the airship and another pioneering form of technology - the submarine. Detailed cut-away drawings reveal the design and development of the airship, during and after the war, whilst full-color illustrations depict the airship in dramatic action shots. A tragic accident in 1930 brought the airship''s military service to an end, resulting in a tiny window in which they were used and little acknowledgement over the years. Ian Knight gives deserved attention to an aeronautical wonder that for a short amount of time played a crucial service to the defense of Britain.

Dan Graham: Rock My Religion

Product : Dan Graham: Rock My Religion
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Dan Graham''s Rock My Religion (1982--1984) is a video essay populated by punk and rock performers (Patti Smith, Jim Morrison, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Eddie Cochran) and historical figures (including Ann Lee, founder of the Shakers). It represented a coming together of narrative voice-overs, singing and shouting voices, and jarring sounds and overlaid texts that proposed a historical genealogy of rock music and an ambitious thesis about the origins of North America''s popular culture. Because of its passionate embrace of underground music, its low-fi aesthetics, interest in politics, and liberal approach to historiography, the video has become a landmark work in the history of contemporary moving image and art; but it has remained, possibly for the same reasons, one of Graham''s least written about works--underappreciated and possibly misunderstood by the critics who otherwise celebrate him. This illustrated study of Graham''s groundbreaking work fills that critical gap. Kodwo Eshun examines Rock My Religion not only in terms of contemporary art and Graham''s wider body of work but also as part of the broader culture of the time. He explores the relationship between Graham and New York''s underground music scene of the 1980s, connecting the artistic methods of the No Wave bands--especially their group dynamics and relationship to the audience--and Rock My Religion''s treatment of working class identity and culture.

He was already revered as a lecturer, but his flashes of pure brilliance were more often only heard in familiar conversation. This book was constructed from notes taken by a Miss S.E. Waldo from New York, who worked so closely with Swami that she could almost put his very thoughts onto paper. An enlightening and fascinating read, this book is recommended for inclusion on the bookshelf of any admirer of Swami Vivekananda. Many of these earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
