Most notably, the supplement now includes short annotations that introduce each selection. These annotations put each selection in context by explaining its origins, central purpose(s), scope of application, and current legal status. Students will better understand the selection's point, purpose, and content; and teachers will have less need to explain an assigned selection's context. In addition, the 2013 edition includes excerpts from Regulation Z under the Credit Card Act, the newer edition of the UNIDROIT Principles, the European Union's 2011 Directive on Consumer Rights and the European Commission's proposal for a European sales law. The annotations, conjoined with its inclusiveness, currency, and convenience, offer a significant comparative advantage over competing volumes and materials.

Der Klassiker - von sechs Wirtschaftsnobelpreisträgern empfohlen, eine Pflichtlektüre! Warum sind Nationen reich oder arm? Starökonom Daron Acemoglu und Harvard-Politologe James Robinson geben eine ebenso schlüssige wie eindrucksvolle Antwort auf diese grundlegende Frage. Anhand zahlreicher, faszinierender Fallbeispiele – von den Conquistadores über die Industrielle Revolution bis zum heutigen China, von Sierra Leone bis Kolumbien – zeigen sie, mit welcher Macht die Eliten mittels repressiver Institutionen sämtliche Regeln zu ihren Gunsten manipulieren - zum Schaden der vielen Einzelnen. Ein spannendes und faszinierendes Plädoyer dafür, dass Geschichte und Geographie kein Schicksal sind. Und ein überzeugendes Beispiel, dass die richtige Analyse der Vergangenheit neue Wege zum Verständnis unserer Gegenwart und neue Perspektiven für die Zukunft eröffnet. Ein provokatives, brillantes und einzigartiges Buch. »Dieses Buch werden unsere Ur-Ur-Urenkel in zweihundert Jahren noch lesen.« George Akerlof, Nobelpreisträger für Wirtschaftswissenschaften »Eine absolut überzeugende Studie.« Gary S. Becker, Nobelpreisträger für Wirtschaftswissenschaften »Ein wirklich wichtiges Buch.« Michael Spence, Nobelpreisträger für Wirtschaftswissenschaften »Acemoglu und Robinson begeistern und regen zum Nachdenken an.« Robert Solow, Nobelpreisträger für Wirtschaftswissenschaften »Ein wichtiges, unverzichtbares Werk.« Peter Diamond, Nobelpreisträger für Wirtschaftswissenschaften »Ein wichtiger Beitrag zur Debatte, warum Staaten mit gleicher Vorrausetzung sich so wesentlich in wirtschaftlichen und politischen Entwicklungen unterscheiden.« Kenneth J. Arrow, Nobelpreisträger für Wirtschaftswissenschaften »Diese faktenreiche und ermutigende Streitschrift lehrt uns, dass die Geschichte glücklich enden kann, wenn ihr kein Mensch mehr als Versuchsobjekt dient.« Michael Holmes, NZZ am Sonntag »Anderthalb Jahrzehnte Arbeit eines Pools von Wissenschaftlern, auf 600 Seiten zusammengefasst durch zwei Forscher von Weltrang – und dies kommt heraus: eine Liebeserklärung an Institutionen, die im Sinne ihrer Bürger funktionieren. [...] bestechend.« Elisabeth von Thadden, Die Zeit »Sie werden von diesem Buch begeistert sein.« Jared Diamond, Pulitzer Preisträger und Autor der Weltbestseller »Kollaps« und »Arm und Reich« » Ein höchst lesenswertes Buch.« Francis Fukuyama, Autor des Bestsellers »Das Ende der Geschichte« »Ein phantastisches Buch. Acemoglu und Robinson gehen das wichtigste Problem der Sozialwissenschaften an – eine Frage, die führende Denker seit Jahrhunderten plagt – und liefern eine in ihrer Einfachheit und Wirkmächtigkeit brillante Antwort. Eine wunderbar lesbare Mischung aus Geschichte, Politikwissenschaft und Ökonomie, die unser Denken verändern wird. Pflichtlektüre.« Steven Levitt, Autor von »Freakonomics«

Cloth. $125. * Hare's objective was to trace the doctrine of consideration and to show its influence on contracts in common law. Beginning with Roman law, where the doctrine of consideration was unknown, he proceeds to an examination of the practical importance of the law of sales. This treatise was taken from a course of lectures given by the author in the law school of the University of Pennsylvania, where he also served as a trustee. Hare [1816-1905] edited a number of selections and reports of cases and "...was one of the half-dozen greatest judges that Pennsylvania has produced. He ascended the bench just after equity was introduced, as a general system, into Pennsylvania, and his contribution to its establishment was of great importance."

Dieses Buch wendet sich gegen den uns immer mehr bedrohenden und wuchernden Moloch Staat. Es enthält eine aufsehenerregende philosophische Herausforderung an die verbreitetsten politischen und sozialen Auffassungen unserer Zeit, sowohl die liberalen, sozialistischen als auch konservativen. "Anarchie, Staat, Utopia" widerspricht der heute vorherrschenden Meinung, daß das Wohl der Menschen nur durch ein Mehr an Staat erreicht werden kann. Der Autor deckt einen Widerspruch unserer Gesellschaft auf, die einerseits soziale Sicherung durch den Staat fordert und andererseits ein Höchstmaß an individueller Freiheit beansprucht. Mit zwingender Logik, gedanklicher Tiefe und außerordentlichem Scharfsinn legt Nozick schonungslos dar, welcher Illusion unsere Gesellschaft erliegt, wenn sie der Maschinerie unseres Staates immer mehr Aufgaben aufbürdet, in der Erwartung, daß nur Bürokratie und Verwaltung in der Lage wären, die Probleme der Menschen zu lösen. Dieser scheinbar unaufhaltsamen Entwicklung stellt Nozick seine These eines Minimalstaates entgegen: Der Staat ist laut Nozick nur gerechtfertigt, wenn er streng auf die Funktion des Schutzes gegen Gewalt, Diebstahl, Betrug und Durchsetzung von Verträgen beschränkt wird. Jedes weitergehende staatliche Eingreifen würde, wie Nozick glänzend darlegt, notwendigerweise die Rechte des einzelnen verletzen. Daraus ergeben sich zwei bemerkenswerte Folgerungen, denen ausführlich nachgegangen wird: ”Der Staat darf seinen Zwangsapparat nicht dazu einsetzen, einige Bürger dazu zu bringen, anderen zu helfen oder jemandem um seines eigenen Wohles oder Schutzes willen etwas zu verbieten.
