  • Disaster Lawby Kristian Cedervall Lauta

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 135.00

    Disasters and their management are today central to public and political agendas. Rather than being understood as exclusively acts of God and Nature, natural disasters are increasingly analysed as social vulnerability exposed by natural hazards. A disaster following an earthquake is no longer seen as caused exclusively by tremors, but by poor building... more...

    Comparative study has emerged as the new frontier of constitutional law scholarship as well as an important aspect of constitutional adjudication.

  • Die gestörte Gesamtschuld im Internationalen Privatrechtby Anna-Lisa Kühn

    Mohr Siebeck 2014; US$ 68.42

    Die gestörte Gesamtschuld stellt bereits nach deutschem Sachrecht ein sehr umstrittenes Problemfeld dar.

Es stellt sich hier die Frage, was es für die Auflösung des Mehrpersonenverhältnisses bedeutet, wenn... more...

This study is critical of the way in which punitiveness... more...
