Acclaim for the first edition: ïThis is a very important and immense book. . . The Elgar Encyclopedia of Comparative Law is a treasure-trove of honed knowledge of the laws of many countries. It is a reference book for dipping into, time and time again. It is worth every penny and there is not another as comprehensive in its coverage as ElgarÍs. I highly recommend the Elgar Encyclopedia of Comparative Law to all English chambers. This is a very important book that should be sitting in every university law school library.Í _ Sally Ramage, The Criminal Lawyer Containing newly updated versions of existing entries and adding several important new entries, this second edition of the Elgar Encyclopedia of Comparative Law takes stock of present-day comparative law scholarship. Written by leading authorities in their respective fields, the contributions in this accessible book cover and combine not only questions regarding the methodology of comparative law, but also specific areas of law (such as administrative law and criminal law) and specific topics (such as accident compensation and consideration). In addition, the Encyclopedia contains reports on a selected set of countriesÍ legal systems and, as a whole, presents an overview of the current state of affairs. Providing its readers with a unique point of reference, as well as stimulus for further research, this volume is an indispensable tool for anyone interested in comparative law, especially academics, students and practitioners.

In Kombination mit den Grundlagen der Netzwerkanalyse, angelehnt an die Elektrotechnik, bieten die mechatronischen Netzwerke neuartige Lösungsansätze zur Beschreibung komplexer mechatronischer Systeme. Diese einheitliche Beschreibungsform ermöglicht eine durchgehend konsistente Darstellung über alle gekoppelten mechatronischen Teilsysteme. Das Buch ist sowohl für Studierende der Mechatronik, der Elektrotechnik, des Maschinenbaus oder angrenzender Lehrgebiete geeignet. Im Vordergrund steht zunächst eine möglichst praxisnahe Darstellung aller Teilkomponenten, um sie anschließend universell zu verkoppeln. Jede Teilkomponente wird an ausführlichen Beispielen und Aufgaben analysiert und berechnet. Dabei beschränken sich die Mechatronischen Netzwerke keineswegs auf lineare Ersatzelemente. Vielmehr werden bewusst nicht lineare Aufgabenstellung einbezogen, um zu zeigen, dass die Modellbildung Mechatronischer Netzwerke nicht nur für lineare Systeme seine Gültigkeit hat. Der Anhang enthält neben teilweise tiefergehenden Analysen die notwendigen Simulationsdateien für eine selbstständige Wissensvertiefung. Die Vereinheitlichung mehrerer Wissensgebiete der Mechatronik bedingt jedoch auch eine Vereinheitlichung von vormals unterschiedlichen Variablen und Bezeichnungen. Das führt mitunter auf Differenzen zur bisherigen Literatur. Dennoch wird versucht auch hier eine systematische Vorgehensweise einzuführen.

Cases, Discussion and Problems
Author: Brian A. Blum,Amy C. Bushaw
Publisher: Wolters Kluwer Law & Business
Contracts: Cases, Discussion, and Problems, Fourth Edition is known for its strikingly clear, straightforward text that illuminates cases as well as concepts and theory. The book focuses on modern cases to expose students to contemporary contract law, but it also includes many important or iconic older cases. The cases are set in context by extensive author-written explanatory text. Insightful questions draw attention to difficult and crucial aspects of the law and prompt vigorous class discussion. Numerous problems, ranging from simple to complex, supplement cases and introduce topics taught most effectively through problems. The casebook’s traditional organization begins with formation and then corresponds to the sequence followed by the Restatement (2nd) of Contracts and treatises. Its concise, efficient presentation results in an optimum length for the course. Procedural issues are highlighted when presented by the cases and transactional issues such as drafting, client counseling, and negotiation are raised through the use of questions and small exercises throughout the text. Strengthening the text’s focus on contemporary methods of contracting, modern issues in standard contracts are explored along with contracts entered into electronically. International and comparative material offers alternative approaches for students to consider, such as those taken by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) and the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts.

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)
