  • The Oligarchby James Sherry

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 35.45

    This book uses the structure of Machiavelli’s The Prince to show how governance has changed over the last 500 years. If Machiavelli focuses on power concentrated in the hands of the republic or principalities, The Oligarch looks at how states and companies today function as oligarchies. Rather than dealing with the form of government, it addresses... more...

  • Legal Violence and the Limits of the Lawby Amy Swiffen; Joshua Nichols

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    What is the meaning of punishment today? Where is the limit that separates it from the cruel and unusual?

  • Introduction to Lawby Jaap Hage; Antonia Waltermann; Bram Akkermans

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 67.36

    This book is exceptional in the sense that it provides an introduction to law in general rather than the law of one specific jurisdiction, and it presents a unique way of looking at legal education. It is crucial for lawyers to be aware of the different ways in which societal problems can be solved and to be able to discuss the advantages and disadvantages... more...
