A highly flexible casebook focusing on core concepts and central controversies in evidence law. With well-selected and tightly edited cases, this casebook offers thoroughly up-to-date coverage of technical and jurisprudential developments in scientific proof. Specifically, the fourth edition contains a dozen new cases while also dropping older material made redundant by the additions. The author has replaced the Supreme Court s confrontation decisions in Davis v. Washington and Michigan v. Bryant with the Court s 2015 decision in Clark v. Ohio. The Court s 2012 decision in Williams v. Illinois, regarding confrontation and expert witnesses, has replaced State v. Lewis. And Warger v. Shauers, the Court s 2014 decision applying Federal Rule of Evidence 606(b), has pushed aside Tanner v. United States and People v. Fleiss.

In seiner Dissertation aus dem Jahr 1899 widmet sich Evangelos Samios der völkerrechtlichen Definition und Abgrenzung des Pirateriebegriffs. Es sollte zwar erst 1958 gelingen, eine völkerrechtliche Vertragsregelung umzusetzen, doch wie Samios zeigt, wurden bereits im 19. Jahrhundert die Rechtsgrundlagen für den internationalen Kampf gegen Piraterie geschaffen.Nachdruck der Originalausgabe.

Das große US-Epos um Klassenjustiz und staatliche Willkür jetzt in deutscher Neuübersetzung Vom Tellerwäscher zum Märtyrer – die Namen Sacco und Vanzetti stehen für den Wirklichkeit gewordenen amerikanischen Alptraum. Ihr Schicksal erschütterte Millionen Menschen weltweit in ihrem Glauben an Recht und Ordnung. Upton Sinclair, engagierter Romancier und Gesellschaftskritiker, inszenierte die realen Geschehnisse der Zwanzigerjahre als fesselndes literarisches Epochendrama. Glamour, Jazz und endlose Partys: Das waren die Roaring Twenties. Allerdings ist das nur die halbe Wahrheit – Upton Sinclair zeigt uns die ganze. Denn während die Happy Few feierten, wurden die Massen mittels brutaler Klassenjustiz niedergehalten. Am Beispiel der einflussreichen Ostküsten-Sippe Thornwell zeigt «Boston», wie das System staatlich sanktionierter Korruption funktionierte. Als Kulminationspunkt dient der Schauprozess gegen die zwei bekanntesten Justizopfer der amerikanischen Geschichte, Nicola Sacco und Bartolomeo Vanzetti, die 1927 wegen Mordes hingerichtet wurden. In diesem ergreifenden Buch geht es um die moralische Glaubwürdigkeit offizieller Repräsentanten und Institutionen, um Menschenliebe und Bürgerpflicht, um Gerechtigkeit und den Mut zur Wahrheit.

German Public Takeover Law

Since it was enacted early in 2002, the German Securities Acquisition and Takeover Act has proven to be a well functioning body of law for public takeovers. With ample opportunity to work with the rules, all parties offerors, target company directors and managers, regulators, and courts have established a firm basis for proceeding confidently with public mergers and acquisitions and public-to-private transactions in Germany. This shift from the uncertain business environment in which the first edition of this book appeared in 2002 calls for an update. This new edition takes into account all the regulatory and judicial clarifications that have emerged during the intervening years, as well as the 2006 amendments that make use of the option not to apply the restrictive European model concerning defensive measures of target companies against public takeover attempts. Among the features of the Act (and the legal framework it represents) considered here are the following: the European passport for public offers; squeeze-out options for offerors; sell-out option for shareholders of target companies; the role of the regulator (BaFin); and restructuring measures after a successful offer. A substantial portion of the book is taken up with texts of the relevant German laws and regulations, synoptically arranged in both German and English. In particular it contains the complete Securities Acquisition and Takeover Act and all of its related regulations, together with substantial portions of the Stock Corporation Act and many other statutory materials that are relevant in public takeover and public-to-private transactions. The German Public Takeover Law, Second Edition, will greatly assist strategic and financial investors, their investment bankers, lawyers and other advisors in international and cross-border business to better understand what their German lawyers are advising them, as it facilitates communication between different legal cultures. The book is also an excellent guide to the current and future characteristics of the law governing German equity markets.

Der zerstreute Professor Timofey Pnin ist ein einsamer Individualist, den der American Way of Life tief verstört. Der Immigrant wirkt auf seine Umwelt wie ein komischer Versager. Aber seine Würde, sein Ernst, seine Persönlichkeit lassen ebendiese Umwelt lächerlich erscheinen: Sie versagt an ihm. Alles, was Pnin widerfährt, macht uns diesen altmodischen russischen Gelehrten liebenswert. «Ein Wunderwerk des Humors. Ein Jahrhundertroman.» (Marcel Reich-Ranicki, Der Spiegel)
