Choice of Law provides an in-depth study of private international law (PIL) as it pertains to the United States. In this book, Symeon C. Symeonides focuses entirely on Choice of Law pertaining to the question of whether the merits of the dispute will be resolved under the substantive law of the state of adjudication (lex fori), or under the law of another involved state. Structured in three parts, this book discusses the Federal framework, history, doctrine, methodology, and the practice of choice of law. The author begins with the history of choice-of-law doctrine and follows its subsequent evolution to the present. He then moves on to methodology, and extensively explores the case law of the last fifty years, covering what courts say, and especially what they do. Symeonides goes on to identify emerging decisional patterns and extracts descriptive rules or tentative predictions about likely outcomes.

There remains an urgent need for a deeper discussion of the theoretical, political and federal dimensions of the European codification project. While much valuable work has already been undertaken, the chapters in this volume take as their starting point the proposition that further reflection and critical thought will enhance the quality and efficacy of the on-going work of the various codification bodies. The volume contains chapters by representatives of the Common Frame of Reference, the Study Group and the Acquis Group as well as by those who have not been involved in particular projects but who have previously commented more distantly on their work - for instance those belonging to the Trento Group, and the Social Justice Group. The chapters between them represent the most comprehensive attempt so far to survey the state of the codification project, its theoretical, political and federal foundations and the future prospects for enforcement and compliance.

Trevor Noah kam 1984 im Township Soweto als Sohn einer Xhosa und eines Schweizers zur Welt. Zu einer Zeit, da das südafrikanische Apartheidsregime „gemischtrassige“ Beziehungen weiterhin unter Strafe stellte. Als Kind, das es nicht geben durfte, erlebte er Armut und systematischen Rassismus, aber auch die mutige Auflehnung seiner "farbenblinden" Eltern, die einfallsreich versuchten, Trennungen zwischen Ethnien und Geschlechtern zu überwinden. Heute ist er ein international gefeierter Comedian, der die legendäre "The Daily Show" in den USA leitet und weltweit – ob Sydney, Dubai, Toronto, San Francisco oder Berlin – in ausverkauften Sälen auftritt. In "Farbenblind" erzählt Trevor Noah ebenso feinsinnig wie komisch in achtzehn Geschichten von seinem Aufwachsen in Südafrika, das den ganzen Aberwitz der Apartheid bündelt: warum ihn seine Mutter aus einem fahrenden Minibus warf, um Gottes Willen zu erfüllen, welche Musik er für einen tanzenden Hitler aufzulegen pflegte, um sein erstes Geld zu verdienen, und wie ihn eine Überwachungskamera, die nicht einmal zwischen Schwarz und Weiß unterscheiden konnte, vor dem Gefängnis bewahrte.

Wenn David auf Goliath trifft, hat er zwei Möglichkeiten: Spielt er nach dessen Regeln, wird er verlieren. Ist er bereit, die Regeln der Macht zu brechen, zwingt er den Riesen damit in die Knie. Malcolm Gladwell ist davon überzeugt: Underdogs sind Gewinner! In genialen Episoden von listigen Kriegsherren, halbstarken Basketballteams und inspirierten Softwareentwicklern zeigt der Kultautor, dass Triumph keine Frage der Größe, sondern der inneren Haltung ist. Gladwells hintersinniges Plädoyer für das Große im Kleinen ist zugleich ein Appell zum kreativen Ungehorsam. Nach der Lektüre dieses verblüffenden Buchs ist kein Riese mehr vor Ihnen sicher.

Wenn in den USA schwarze Teenager von Polizisten ermordet werden, ist das nur ein Problem von individueller Verfehlung? Nein, denn rassistische Gewalt ist fest eingewebt in die amerikanische Identität – sie ist das, worauf das Land gebaut ist. Afroamerikaner besorgten als Sklaven seinen Reichtum und sterben als freie Bürger auf seinen Straßen. In seinem schmerzhaften, leidenschaftlichen Manifest verdichtet Ta-Nehisi Coates amerikanische und persönliche Geschichte zu einem Appell an sein Land, sich endlich seiner Vergangenheit zu stellen. Sein Buch wurde in den USA zum Nr.-1-Bestseller und ist schon jetzt ein Klassiker, auf den sich zukünftig alle Debatten um Rassismus beziehen werden.

The product of a three-year project by twenty renowned international law scholars and practitioners, the Tallinn Manual identifies the international law applicable to cyber warfare and sets out ninety-five 'black-letter rules' governing such conflicts. It addresses topics including sovereignty, State responsibility, the jus ad bellum, international humanitarian law, and the law of neutrality. An extensive commentary accompanies each rule, which sets forth the rule's basis in treaty and customary law, explains how the group of experts interpreted applicable norms in the cyber context, and outlines any disagreements within the group as to each rule's application.
