Any decision about Louisiana collateral, financing, lending, mortgages, guarantees, liens and privileges, and collection procedures must take into account that Louisiana is the only state in the nation with civil law (rather than common law). Louisiana's Civil Code, with rules that trace back to the Napoleonic Code, and related statutes are the key to understanding this area of law. The Precis series of titles provides a comprehensive view of all of these topics and more. Areas covered by Louisiana Law of Security Devices include: • Suretyship and guarantees, including rules pertaining to Louisiana's categories of commercial, legal, and ordinary sureties; • Mortgage lending, including creation of mortgage, the types of Louisiana mortgages (conventional, legal and judicial), necessary provisions for a valid mortgage and desirable provisions for judicial execution on mortgages, and mortgage ranking; • Louisiana's law of registry and public records; • Title examination; • The interrelationship of the U.C.C. with Louisiana mortgage laws; • Securing interests in leases, in a rental income stream, and in leased property; • Judicial and non-judicial foreclosure rules, including the Louisiana Deficiency Judgment Act; • Louisiana liens and privileges, including general privileges as well as special privileges on both movable and immovable property; and • The Louisiana Private Works Act, governing materialmen's liens. Louisiana Law of Security Devices contains, in easy-to-understand, non-legalese language: • A detailed discussion of all of the key Civil Code articles and other statutes • Numerous examples of how these rules interrelate; • Examples of how to resolve complex issues of ranking security devices • Practical "how to" tips for practitioners; and • Warnings of potential traps for the unwary in drafting and negotiating lending documents.

This book brings together a wide range of contributors from across the common law world to identify and debate the principal moral and systemic challenges facing private law in the remaining part of the twenty-first century. The various contributions identify serious problems relating to complexity and overload, threats to research and education, the law's unintelligibility, the unsatisfactory nature of the law reform process and a general lack of public engagement. They consider the respective future roles of statutes, codes, and judge-made law (in the form of both common law and equitable rules). They consider how best to organise the private law system internally, and how to co-ordinate it externally with other public and economic systems (human rights, regulation, insurance markets and social security frameworks). They address the challenges for private law presented by new forms of technology, and by modern demands for the protection of new and intangible forms of moral interest, such as interests in privacy, 'vindication' and 'personal choice'. They also engage with the critical contemporary debates about access to, and the privatisation of, civil justice. The work is designed as a source of inspiration and reference for private lawyers, as well as legislators, policy-makers and students.

Eine gefährdete Liebe, eine Familie im Konflikt, ein Roman voller Geschichten – vom Autor des Welterfolgs «Die Korrekturen» Eine Serie von Erdbeben erschüttert Boston. Als die Großmutter von Louis Holland dabei ums Leben kommt, entbrennt ein erbitterter Familienstreit um ihr Vermögen. Seine Freundin, die junge Seismologin Renée, bemüht sich unterdessen, die Ursachen des rätselhaften Bebens zu ergründen. Doch je näher sie ihrem Ziel kommt, desto heftiger gerät das moralische Fundament der Familie Holland ins Wanken. «Ein großer Roman. Eine der schönsten Liebesgeschichten dieser Zeit.» (Süddeutsche Zeitung) «Jonathan Franzen zeigt ungemein unterhaltsam und humorvoll, was die Stärken des amerikanischen Romans ausmacht. ‹Schweres Beben› ist ein weiteres gewichtiges Kapitel der Menschlichen Komödie.» (Literaturen) «Ein sprachgewaltiges Panorama.» (Die Welt) «Moralisch und zynisch, heftig und sanft, komisch und traurig zugleich. Als hätten Bob Dylan und The Clash zusammen einen Song geschrieben.» (die tageszeitung) «‹Schweres Beben› ist nicht nur ein spannender Ökokatastrophenthriller, sondern auch ein Liebes- und Familienroman.» (Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung)
