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«

Mit über 200.000 verkauften Exemplaren dominierte „Power – Die 48 Gesetze der Macht“ von Robert Greene monatelang die Bestsellerlisten. Nun erscheint der Klassiker als Kompaktausgabe: knapp, prägnant, unterhaltsam. Wer Macht haben will, darf sich nicht zu lange mit moralischen Skrupeln aufhalten. Wer glaubt, dass ihn die Mechanismen der Macht nicht interessieren müssten, kann morgen ihr Opfer sein. Wer behauptet, dass Macht auch auf sanftem Weg erreichbar ist, verkennt die Wirklichkeit. Dieses Buch ist der Machiavelli des 21. Jahrhunderts, aber auch eine historische und literarische Fundgrube voller Überraschungen.

Internationales Und Europaisches Strafrecht

Strafanwendungsrecht - Europaisches Straf- Und Strafverfahrensrecht - Volkerstrafrecht

Category: Criminal law

Page: 438

View: 7579

In Wissenschaft, Praxis und Ausbildung ist seit einigen Jahren das Strafrecht in seiner internationalen Bedeutung verstarkt in den Mittelpunkt des Interesses geruckt. Und das zu Recht: Denn zunehmend haben wir es mit Kriminalitat zu tun, die "uber die Grenzen" hinweg agiert, und eine strafrechtliche Zusammenarbeit auf internationaler Ebene bedingt. So hat die Europaische Union - nicht zuletzt seit dem Vertrag von Lissabon - starke Moglichkeiten, das nationale Straf- und Strafverfahrensrecht zu beeinflussen. Auf volkerrechtlicher Ebene ist sogar ein ganzlich eigenstandiges Strafrechtssystem fur volkerrechtliche Verbrechen entstanden, das spatestens seit den ersten Urteilen der internationalen Gerichte - nun auch des standigen Internationalen Strafgerichtshofs - effektiv zur Durchsetzung gelangt. Das - mittlerweile in 7. Auflage vorliegende - Lehrbuch will dieser internationalen Dimension gerecht werden, indem das Strafanwendungsrecht, das Straf- und Strafverfahrensrecht der Europaischen Union, die einschlagigen Garantien der Europaischen Menschenrechtskonvention sowie das Volkerstrafrecht in seinen wesentlichen Grundzugen dargestellt werden. Die Neuauflage ist durchgangig aktualisiert, uberarbeitet und zum Teil erweitert. Zur Erleichterung der Arbeit mit diesem Buch finden sich - in bewahrter Manier - alle wichtigen Dokumente, auf die Bezug genommen wird, auf einer standig aktualisierten Homepage (www.lehrbuch-satzger.de).
