Healthcare Antitrust, Settlements, and the Federal Trade Commission
$131.38
Emerald
August-10-2018
This volume of Research in Law and Economics contains articles that address important legal and economic developments in the areas of healthcare, intellectual property and labor settlements, competitive effects, cartel overcharges, and the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (?FTC?). Four of the articles were initially presented at a conference on healthcare competition in Washington, D.C., which was sponsored by the American Antitrust Institute, this journal, and Navigant Economics. These articles explore practices that are under challenge in pharmaceuticals, where the Federal Trade Commission has been extremely active, as well as issues involving hospital and health insurance mergers. They are followed by a long and detailed discussion of the current and historic role of economists and economic analysis at the Federal Trade Commission. The next two articles analyze different aspects of the French economy, pre-trial labor settlements and the impact of e-commerce on franchisees. The volume ends with three technical economics articles ? one on ?upward pricing pressure?, one on estimating price increases in cartel cases, and one critiquing a ?meta-analysis? of research on the effectiveness of U.S. merger regulation. Taken together, these articles raise questions about appropriate competition policy, how to evaluate settlements and other firm behavior, and where economics and competition policy are headed.

Sensing the Nation's Law

Historical Inquiries into the Aesthetics of Democratic Legitimacy
This book examines  how the nation ? and its (fundamental) law ? are ?sensed? by way of various aesthetic forms from the age of revolution up until our age of contested democratic legitimacy. Contemporary democratic legitimacy is tied, among other things, to consent, to representation, to the identity of ruler and ruled, and, of course, to legality and the legal forms through which democracy is structured. This book expands the ways in which we can understand and appreciate democratic legitimacy. If (democratic) communities are ?imagined? this book suggests that their ?rightfulness? must be ?sensed? ? analogously to the need for justice not only to be done, but to be seen to be done. This book brings together legal, historical and philosophical perspectives on the representation and iconography of the nation in the European, North American and Australian contexts from contributors in law, political science, history, art history and philosophy.

Springer
January-17-2018
<p>Zentrales Anliegen der Abhandlung ist es, das Verhältnis von Individuen und ihrem Handeln zum staatlichen Gemeinwohlauftrag näher zu beleuchten. Beginnend mit der Einordnung der Gemeinnützigkeit als besonderes Instrument der Gemeinwohlförderung werden sodann Wesensmerkmale einer Gemeinnützigkeitssphäre definiert. Sie umfasst Aktivitäten, die freiwillig, unentgeltlich und mit qualifiziertem Gemeinwohlbezug ausgeführt werden. Vorteil einer rechtsklaren Erfassung der Aktivitäten natürlicher Personen in der Gemeinnützigkeitssphäre wäre insbesondere, dass ein solcher Status als partiell gemeinnützige (natürliche) Person je nach Lebensphase mit verschiedener Intensität eingenommen werden könnte und daran entsprechende Förderinstrumente wie z.B. zusätzliche Rentenpunkte für die Engagierten angeknüpft werden könnten.<b></b></p>

Die Leitentscheidung

Zur Grundlegung eines Begriffs und seiner Erforschung im Unionsrecht anhand des EuGH-Urteils Kadi
Das Werk etabliert f�r besondere gerichtliche Entscheidungen den Begriff der Leitentscheidung. Es zeigt, dass Leitentscheidungen erst in einem Entwicklungsprozess nach ihrer Verk�ndung zu solchen werden. Dabei spielen die verunsicherten Selbstverst�ndnisse verschiedener Interpretenkollektive sowie eine bestimmte Verwendung der gerichtlichen Entscheidung eine wichtige Rolle. Diese These wird ankn�pfend an die literatur- und kulturwissenschaftliche Kanonforschung sowie in Auseinandersetzung mit den Urteilen Marbury v. Madison, L�th und Van Gend & Loos entwickelt. Eine Untersuchung der Argumentation mit dem EuGH-Urteil Kadi in Wissenschaft, Unionsgerichtsbarkeit und Politik identifiziert die Besonderheiten der Leitentscheidungsentwicklung im Unionsrecht.

The Pimping of Prostitution

October-02-2017
Abolishing the Sex Work Myth
This book examines one of the most contested issues facing feminists, human rights activists and governments around the globe ? the international sex trade. For decades, the liberal left has been conflicted as to whether pro-prostitution activists or abolitionists hold the correct view, and debates are ongoing as to who holds the key to the solutions facing the women and girls involved.

Over the course of two years, Bindel conducted 250 interviews in almost 40 countries, cities and states, traveling around Europe, Asia, North America, Australia, New Zealand, and East and South Africa. Visiting legal brothels all around the world, Bindel got to know pimps, pornographers, survivors of the sex trade, and the women being sold by men classed as ?business entrepreneurs?. Whilst meeting feminist abolitionists, pro-prostitution campaigners, police and government officials, and the men who drive the demand, Bindel uncovered the lies, mythology and criminal activity that shroud this global trade, and suggests here a way forward for the women seeking to abolish the oldest oppression. Informed by the lived human experience of those interviewed, this book will be of great interest to feminists, students, criminal justice advocates, criminologists and human rights activists.

Introduction to Law
$76.23
Springer
August-09-2017

This book is exceptional in the sense that it provides an introduction to law in general rather than the law of one specific jurisdiction, and it presents a unique way of looking at legal education. It is crucial for lawyers to be aware of the different ways in which societal problems can be solved and to be able to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of different legal solutions. In this respect, being a lawyer involves being able to reason like a lawyer, even more than having detailed knowledge of particular sets of rules. Introduction to Law reflects this view by focusing on the functions of rules and on ways of arguing the relative qualities of alternative legal solutions. Where ?positive? law is discussed, the emphasis is on the legal questions that must be addressed by a field of law and on the different solutions which have been adopted by, for instance, the common law and civil law tradition. The law of specific jurisdictions is discussed to illustrate possible answers to questions such as when the existence of a valid contract is assumed.

Poisons and Murder Set

June-23-2017
How can a plant as beautiful as the foxglove be so deadly and yet for more than a century be used to treat heart disease? The same is true of other naturally occurring molecules as will be revealed in these three books which examine poisons, both natural and man-made, and the crimes committed with them, not from the point of view of the murderers, their victims, or the detectives, but from the poison used.
Molecules of Murder: Criminal Molecules and Classic Cases, More Molecules of Murder and Poisons and Poisonings: Death by Stealth throw new light on how these crimes were carried out, how the perpetrators were uncovered and brought to justice and information about how forensic analysis is conducted. Appealing to scientists and non-scientists alike, these enthralling books will entertain and educate and bring the reader up to date with how important chemical analysis is in crime detection.

More Molecules of Murder

June-23-2017

How can a plant as beautiful as the foxglove be so deadly and yet for more than a century be used to treat heart disease? The same is true of other naturally occurring molecules as will be revealed in this current book by award-winning author and chemist, John Emsley.

More Molecules of Murder follows on from his highly-acclaimed earlier book Molecules of Murder, and again it deals with 14 potential poisons; seven of which are man-made and seven of which are natural. It investigates the crimes committed with them, not from the point of view of the murderers, their victims, or the detectives, but from the poison used. In so doing it throws new light on how these crimes were carried out and ultimately how the perpetrators were uncovered and brought to justice.

Each chapter starts by looking at the target molecule itself, its discovery, its chemistry, its often-surprising use in medicine, its effects on the human body, and its toxicology. The rest of the chapter is devoted to murders and attempted murders in which it has been used. But, be reassured that murder by poison is not the threat it once was, thanks to laws which restrict access to such materials and to the skills of analytical chemists in detecting their presence in incredibly tiny amounts.

Molecules of Murder and More Molecules of Murder deal with potential poisons from man-made and natural sources. Both books investigate the crimes committed with them, not from the point of view of the murderers, their victims, or the detectives, but from the poison used. In so doing the books throw new light on how these crimes were carried out and ultimately how the perpetrators were uncovered and brought to justice. The crimes include those committed by infamous murderers and also famous victims like Harold Shipman, Alexander Litvinenko and Georgi Markov.

Each chapter starts by looking at the target molecule itself, its discovery, its chemistry, its often-surprising use in medicine, its effects on the human body, and its toxicology. The rest of the chapter is devoted to murders and attempted murders in which it has been used.

Spheres of Global Justice
$261.03
Springer
May-04-2017
Volume 1 Global Challenges to Liberal Democracy. Political Participation, Minorities and Migrations; Volume 2 Fair Distribution - Global Economic, Social and Intergenerational Justice

Spheres of Global Justice analyzes six of the most important and controversial spheres of global justice, each concerning a specific global social good. These spheres are democratic participation, migrations, cultural minorities, economic justice, social justice, and intergenerational justice. Together they constitute two constellations dealt with, in this collection of essays by leading scholars, in two different volumes: Global Challenges to Liberal Democracy and Fair Distribution. These essays illustrate each of the spheres, delving into their differences, commonalities, collisions and interconnections.�

Unlike many writings on global justice, Spheres of Global Justice does not content itself with describing the painful and advantageous effects of the globalization process as being ipso facto a global injustice or a just global order. Rather, this multidisciplinary collection of essays, from a pluralist inspiration, combines empirical analysis with theoretical approaches and ethical principles, paying close attention to two aspects of the effects of the globalization process. These aspects are the causal relationships that lead to such effects and the kinds of obligations, or of normative relationships between global rights and correlative duties, that applies to each specific individual case. This volume illustrates how diverse global obligations are, and how they can be, grounded in diverse relationships (identity, ability to provide help, causal responsibility, past injustices, protection of agency and promotion of independence, etc.). These essays also demonstrate that an ethical global approach has not only international or transnational, but also domestic, local and interpersonal dimensions.

Environmental Law and Economics
$176.33
Springer
April-21-2017

This anthology discusses important issues surrounding environmental law and economics and provides an in-depth analysis of its use in legislation, regulation and legal adjudication from a neoclassical and behavioural law and economics perspective.

Environmental issues raise a vast range of legal questions: to what extent is it justifiable to rely on markets and continued technological innovation, especially as it relates to present exploitation of scarce resources? Or is it necessary for the state to intervene? Regulatory instruments are available to create and maintain a more sustainable society: command and control regulations, restraints, Pigovian taxes, emission certificates, nudging policies, etc. If regulation in a certain legal field is necessary, which policies and methods will most effectively spur sustainable consumption and production in order to protect the environment while mitigating any potential negative impact on economic development? Since the related problems are often caused by scarcity of resources, economic analysis of law can offer remarkable insights for their resolution.

Part I underlines the foundations of environmental law and economics. Part II analyses the effectiveness of economic instruments and regulations in environmental law. Part III is dedicated to the problems of climate change. Finally, Part IV focuses on tort and criminal law. The twenty-one chapters in this volume deliver insights into the multifaceted debate surrounding the use of economic instruments in environmental regulation in Europe.

The Constitutional Dimension of Contract Law
$160.93
Springer
April-13-2017
A Comparative Perspective

One of the hallmarks of the present era is the discourse surrounding Human Rights and the need for the law to recognise them. Various national and supranational human rights instruments have been developed and implemented in order to transition society away from atrocity and callousness toward a more just and inclusive future. In some countries this is done by means of an overarching constitution, while in others international conventions or ordinary legislation hold sway.

Contract law plays a pivotal role in this context. According to many, this is done through the much-debated ?civilising mission? of the contract, a notion which itself constitutes the canon of the Western liberal principle of ?civilised economy?. The movement away from the belief in the absolute freedom of contract, which reached its zenith in the nineteenth century, to the principles of fairness and justice that underpin contract law today, is often deemed to be a testament to this civilising influence. 

Delving into the interplay between human rights policies, constitutional law, and contract law from both theoretical and practical perspectives, this first volume of a two-book collection offers a totally new reappraisal of the subject by gathering a collection of essays written by contract law scholars from Europe, South Africa, Canada, and Australia. Instead of providing the reader with a sterile compilation of positivistic norms and policies on the impact of fundamental rights and constitutional law issues on contract law?s development, the authors build on their personal experience to analyse specific topics related to contracting that include a constitutional dimension. The book fills an important void in comparative law scholarship and in so doing represents the starting point for further debate on the subject.

Reflections on Ethics and Responsibility
$107.03
Springer
February-14-2017
Essays in Honor of Peter A. French

The original essays in this book address the influential writings of Peter A. French on the nature of responsibility, ethics, and moral practices. French?s contributions to a wide spectrum of philosophical discussions have made him a dominant figure in the fields of normative ethics, meta-ethics, applied ethics, as well as legal and political philosophy. Many of French?s deepest insights come from identifying and exploring the scope and nature of moral responsibility and human agency as they appear in actual events, real social and cultural practices, as well as in literature and film. This immediacy renders French?s scholarship vital and accessible to a wide variety of audiences. The authors, recognized for their own contributions to the understanding of the nature of morality and moral practices offer new and unique positions while exploring, expanding and responding to those of French. The final chapter is written by French, in which he provides both new philosophical insight as well as some reflection on his own work and its influence. This book will appeal to philosophers, as well as advanced students and researchers in the humanities, social sciences, law, and political science.

Eine verfassungs- und einfachrechtliche Betrachtung
Korbinian Hartl beleuchtet die Rollen von Suchmaschinen innerhalb der verfassungsrechtlichen Ordnung. Dogmatisch geht der Autor zun�chst der Verortung von Suchmaschinen innerhalb der Kommunikationsgrundrechte nach, um aufbauend darauf die Frage nach dem ?Ob? einer Reaktionspflicht des Gesetzgebers auf vorhandenes Wirkpotential zu behandeln. Den Abschluss bildet die Auseinandersetzung mit Regulierungsoptionen de lege ferenda. Innerhalb der verfassungsrechtlichen Ordnung werden Suchmaschinen nicht als rein technische ?Dokumentensammler?, sondern als mit eigener Wirkmacht versehene zentrale Instanzen betrachtet.
