Directors are key decision-makers in any organisation, whether it is in the public sector, a family business or a transnational company.

More Details..

With a focus strongly on invasion of dignitary interests and/or rights, the book stresses the dynamic nature of tort law and its capacity to respond to social change in a variety of ways, and invites students to consider the mechanisms by which this may happen, including interaction with legislation and international conventions.

Tomorrow’s Torts aims to:

  • give students an opportunity to explore topics which are not covered in basic Torts courses, such as defamation
  • take an in depth look at important areas like negligence in specific contexts, such as medical malpractice
  • examine emerging torts or novel applications for existing torts, such as in the areas of privacy, sexual injury including harassment and stalking
  • explore toxic torts including tobacco litigation and various pharmaceutical/therapeutic products which have been the subject of mass tort claims or class actions.

Students are encouraged to adopt a creative, comparative and critical perspective, and to think about how the law of torts might look in the future, as well as to master the current law. Tomorrow’s Torts is a collection of commentary and materials suitable for use in upper level undergraduate or postgraduate Law courses, drawn from Canada, the UK, New Zealand, USA, Australia and other jurisdictions.

More Details..

Sovereignty, Human Rights and Global Order addresses the question of whether sovereignty is an instrument of, or an impediment to, cosmopolitan visions of global governance. Sovereignty is an object of desire and the stuff of nightmares. It is a symbol of self-determination and national identity and the biggest violator of human rights; the source of law and order, but also of unspeakable violence. Sovereignty is the biggest unsolved problem of modernity. And the central question addressed by this book is whether it is an inherently negative power that must be destroyed, or at least circumscribed, or an essential bulwark against the injustices of globalization, as well as global risks like economic crises and climate change. Why does sovereignty remain such a central organising principle of political life, at a time when it is supposedly being decentred and deterritorialised? Why is it the only form of power that 'legitimately' monopolises violence? And to what extent should sovereignty be the object of political struggle? Informed by Michel Foucault’s argument that sovereignty, the right to let live, was superseded by biopower, the capacity to let die, Sam Adelman offers a sustained examination of the contemporary phenomenon of sovereignty, arguing that it is only in overcoming the sovereign capacity to condone unnatural death that the possibility of an alternative, and human rights based, global order lies.

International Perspectives on Child Victimisation offers a comprehensive overview of the established themes and emergent debates relating to the abuse and victimization of children. Highlighting key areas of global concern, and illustrated with detailed case studies of important developments, Julia Davidson and Christopher Hamerton address child abuse, child poverty, child exploitation, child prostitution, and child imprisonment within the context of children's rights, and international legal and policy issues. Their focus in this regard is on the ‘place’ of the child in the context of current victimology and social justice discourses, as they explore the social, cultural, and political context of international child victimization. A solid introduction to child victimization for both undergraduate and postgraduate audiences, this book will also appeal to practitioners and policy-makers engaged in child protection and intervention.

More Details..

Identifying crucial deficiencies in the legal theories of Hart and Dworkin, The Rule of Reason in European Constitutionalism and Citizenship draws on the work of Habermas and Alexy in order to elaborate a new juridical conception of citizenship. Taking Europe as its focus, the central substantive argument of the book is that a 'rule of reason' governs supranational constitutionalism. Addressing the free movement law of the internal market, and recently developed case law on the free movement of citizens, it shows how the contours of European and member state legal systems, as well as European and national citizenship, are delimited through an ongoing judicial discourse. The constant drawing and re-drawing of the boundaries of member state and European law is negotiated in a judicial conversation that, it is argued, constitutes a key characteristic of supranational constitutionalism: one that supports a thin, juridical, and essentially rights based, conceptualisation of European citizenship. Offering an innovative theoretical analysis of EU law, The Rule of Reason in European Constitutionalism and Citizenship will be of considerable interest to scholars of European law, European politics and legal theory.

More Details..

Adam Thurschwell, a respected academic and death penalty lawyer, draws upon continental theory and the Anglo-American jurisprudential tradition in order to deliver a critical survey of both the theoretical aspects of capital punishment and its actual administration.

Pursuing an original political approach rather than taking a moral stance, his discussion compares the topics of sovereignty, power and legitimacy with moral desert or consequentialism and explores their impact on perceptions and practices of capital punishment.

Covering micro-issues of legal doctrine and administrative practice, as well as arguments for and against abolition, this book is an invaluable resource for academics and students in law and political theory.

    This book looks at the historical background to the law's approach to ageing, focusing on questions such as:

    • Has the law promoted ageism? 
    • How well has the law protected older people against discrimination, abuse and social exclusion?
    • How effective will new prohibitions on age discrimination be when they come into force?

    Themes include the ways in which the law has a distinct impact on the lives of older people, human rights, housing, finance, health and social care, discrimination, crime, abuse and the state's reaction, and poverty and social exclusion.

More Details..

Exploring sexuality and what constitutes appropriate sexual behaviours in South Africa and Zimbabwe, this book views sexuality as an instrument of social regulation and traces the historical continuities between colonialism and current debates.

The distinctly contrary ways that both countries have approached sexuality epitomize either the intransigence of the ‘traditional’ or the promise of ‘liberation’. Phillips analyzes their differences and similarities, including the contrasting role of the constitution as a platform for rights in each country, their different engagement with customary law and legal subjectivity within the context of a range of concerns, including:

  • gender equality
  • expressions of cultural authenticity
  • rights in local attempts to define the post-colonial nation.

A powerful look at the key elements of gender relations, post-colonial nationhood and sexual rights, this book is an invaluable legal reference resource for all those interested in the interface between sexuality, gender and the law.

More Details..

Are there distinctive postmodern forms of punishment? Is the contemporary 'punitive' turn in the United States a sign of things to come in Europe? Is modern rationality at odds with violence, or the means to applying violence systematically?

Punitive States links together these key contemporary debates in criminology, penology and social theory and offers an alternative analysis inspired by Georges Bataille and Rene Girard. The book concludes with three dramatic case studies that relate the foregoing arguments to contemporary cultural forms and political decisions.

The NHS came into existence in an atmosphere of conflict centred on the strong ideological commitment of the Post-war Labour Government and the opposition of the Conservative Party of that time to the idea of a universally available and centrally planned medical care service. There was also opposition from some sections of the medical establishment who feared the loss of professional autonomy.

Setting health policy in both an historical and modern context (post 1997) Carrier and Kendall weigh up the successes and failures of the National Health Service and examine the conflicts which have continued for over sixty years, in spite of efforts to solve financial problems in the NHS through increases in funding as well as structural and organisational change.

After looking at recent responses to supposed failures of the NHS, they conclude that the NHS has successfully faced the challenges before it and is likely to continue to meet the changing health needs of the population. Financial stresses, concerns about the quality of care and demographic change, with consequent issues for the elderly and the chronically ill, continue to be urgent and politically contentious issues.

This book is appropriate for a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate students studying health policy and the NHS.

More Details..

Successful patent claim drafting is one of the most difficult tasks facing today's practitioner and requires a strong grasp of three separate disciplines that are frequently in a state of flux: patent law, technology, and the state of business and the economy. Strategic Patent Claim Drafting is the first to bridge the gap between a how to guide regarding the mechanics of patent claim drafting and a treatise detailing how the latest developments and trends in these three disciplines are likely to impact claim drafting, taking into account both legal costs and foreseeable risks to provide the best legal protection for inventions. The title is thus meant to help practitioners better understand claim drafting from both mechanical and strategic perspectives, and will ultimately assist them in drafting better claims that--despite the inherent uncertainties involved--will prove to have the most commercial value to their clients. Strategic Patent Claim Drafting is divided into four overall sections. The first section is introductory and sets the tone by reviewing principles of good claim drafting that for the most part transcend case law developments.The second section takes the reader through the basics of claim drafting, which, in general, involves a detailed discussion of the parts of a patent claim - the preamble, the transition word and the body. It is again noted that throughout the work, examples from either case law or purely hypothetical examples will be employed to illustrate the principles. The third section of the book discusses much more advanced considerations in claim drafting. These are issues that should be considered to provide the best legal protection; however, a relatively experienced patent practitioner would be best positioned to ably take advantage of all of the tips and techniques discussed in this section of the book. Finally, the last section of the book discusses a handful of claim types that involve special considerations because of unique legal principles that have developed over the years around these claim types.
