This study aid features an innovative method of content organization. It uses a checklist format to lead students through questions they need to ask to fully evaluate the legal problem they are trying to solve. It also synthesizes the material in a way that most students are unable to do on their own, and assembles the different issues, presenting a clear guide to procedural analysis that students can draw upon when writing their exams. Other study aids provide sample problems, but none offers the systematic approach to problem solving found in this book combined with concise analytical summaries of the leading issues in tort law.

This bookprovides readers with an extremely lucid, intelligent and lively overview of the entire law of tort. The rules and principles making up this area of the law are clearly set out and brought to life by considering how they apply in concrete situations. At the same time, key issues in the law of tort (such as, among many others, the scope of public authority liability in negligence, the effect of the law of defamation on freedom of speech, the scope and rationale of vicarious liability, and the scope of liability under the Consumer Protection Act 1987) are critically discussed in great detail.

In this book leading scholars from the United Kingdom, the United States and Australia challenge established common law rules and suggest new approaches to both old and emerging problems in tort law. Some of the chapters consider broad issues such as the importance of flexibility over certainty in tort law, connections between tort law and human flourishing and the indirect effects of changes in tort law. Other chapters engage more specific topics including the role of vindication in tort law, the relationship between criminal law and tort law, the use of epidemiological evidence in analysing causation, accessory liability in tort law, the role of malice in intentional torts and the role of statutes in tort law. They propose new approaches to contributory negligence, emotional distress, loss of a chance, damages for nuisance, the tort of conspiracy and vicarious liability. The chapters in this book were originally presented at the Sixth Biennial Conference on the Law of Obligations at Western University in London, Ontario in July 2012. They will be highly useful to lawyers, judges and scholars across the common law world.

Hope Jahrens Werdegang von der kindlichen Forscherin zur angesehenen Wissenschaftlerin, die sich trotz zahlreicher Hindernisse in einer Männerwelt behauptet, ist eine inspirierende und mitreißende Geschichte voller Leidenschaft, Durchhaltevermögen und ewiger Neugierde. Ein wunderbares Gleichnis über die Kraft der Natur und die Freude des Entdeckens, das einen ganz neuen Blick auf die Pflanzenwelt eröffnet. Seite für Seite. Blatt für Blatt.

Die historisch gewachsenen nationalen Haftungsrechte in der EU stehen vor einer unbewältigten doppelten Herausforderung: Zum einen die Anpassung an die (post)industrielle Moderne (Stichworte: Risiken, Versicherung, Unternehmenshaftung); zum anderen die Harmonisierung in dem gemeinsamen Binnenmarkt der EG und in dem Verfassungsraum der EU. Der Verfasser misstraut allfälligen Kodifikations- und Vereinheitlichungsinitiativen. Er setzt auf die Annäherung "von unten", d. h. über die vorfindlichen Rechtsordnungen der Mitgliedstaaten. Dies setzt einen europäischen Diskurs über Struktur, Prinzipien und Schutzbereich voraus. Hierzu leistet der Verfasser für das Haftungsrecht einen Beitrag. In kritischer Auseinandersetzung mit dem deutschen Recht und mit vergleichendem Blick auf das englische und amerikanische sowie das französische Recht arbeitet er Entwicklungsperspektiven für ein europäisches Haftungsrecht heraus.

Die anhaltende Diskussion um die »Krise des Parlamentarismus« zeigt, dass die normative Begründung und systematische Bestimmung von Parlamentsfunktionen und demokratischer Öffentlichkeit von entscheidender Bedeutung für die Zukunft der repräsentativen Demokratie ist. Das Problem ist aber nicht neu, wie John Stuart Mills klassischer Text zeigt. Er kreist um die Frage, wie sich die Gefahr einer »Tyrannei der Mehrheit« mit den Partizipationsanforderungen demokratischen Regierens versöhnen lässt. Mill begründet darin u. a. ein deliberatives Verständnis von Politik und erörtert die Gefahren einer bürokratischen Strangulierung politischer Freiheit. Ein Schlüsselwerk der Demokratietheorie und Parlamentarismusforschung.

England, 1464: Die Adelshäuser York und Lancaster kämpfen erbittert um den Thron. Als König Edward, der Erbe der Weißen Rose, der schönen jungen Witwe Elizabeth Woodville begegnet, ist es um beide geschehen. Doch Elizabeth weigert sich, Edwards Mätresse zu werden. Da heiratet der König sie entgegen allen Standesschranken – ein ungeheurer Skandal! Und keine Frau im Königreich hatte je so viele Feinde. Neid, Missgunst und Intrigen bringen Elizabeth und ihre Familie in größte Gefahr. Ihre Widersacher nennen sie eine Hure. Sie nennen sie eine Hexe. Doch Elizabeth weiß: Sie ist die Königin. «Philippa Gregory ist wahrlich die Meisterin des historischen Romans! Geschichte kann kaum unterhaltsamer, lebendiger oder bezaubernder erzählt werden.» (Sunday Express) «Die Königin der Weißen Rose» ist der erste Band ihrer Trilogie über die Zeit der Rosenkriege. Mit diesem Buch gelang der Autorin in Großbritannien wie den USA auf Anhieb der Sprung an die Spitze der Bestsellerlisten.
