In the Clutches of the Law

This volume presents a selection of 500 letters by Clarence Darrow, the pre-eminent courtroom lawyer of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Randall Tietjen selected these letters from over 2,200 letters in archives around the country, as well as from one remarkable find—the kind of thing historians dream about: a cache of about 330 letters by Darrow hidden away in the basement of Darrow’s granddaughter’s house. This collection provides the first scholarly edition of Darrow’s letters, expertly annotated and including a large amount of previously unknown material and hard-to-locate letters. Because Darrow was a gifted writer and led a fascinating life, the letters are a delight to read. This volume also presents a major introduction by the editor, along with a chronology of Darrow’s life, and brief biographical sketches of the important individuals who appear in the letters.

Electromagnetic Clutches and Couplings

Electromagnetic Clutches and Couplings contains a detailed description of U.S.S.R. electromagnetic friction clutches, magnetic couplings, and magnetic particle couplings. This book is divided into four chapters. The first chapter discusses the design and construction of magnetic (solenoid-operated) couplings, which are very quick-acting devices and used in low power high-speed servo-systems. Chapter 2 describes the possible fields of application, design, construction, and utilization of magnetic particle couplings. The aspects of construction, design, and utilization of induction clutches (slip clutches), which provide the solution to the problems of speed control with ventilator loads, are covered in Chapters 3 and 4. The last chapters also include a brief discussion on the construction, design, and application of hysteresis and capacitor couplings. This publication provides a valuable background to the design or selection of many electromagnetic clutches and couplings, which is beneficial to readers intending to find the appropriate type of device for particular purposes and performance.

Law and violence

Law and violence

Christoph Menke is a third-generation Frankfurt School theorist, and widely acknowledged as one of the most interesting philosophers in Germany today. His lead essay focuses on the fundamental question for legal and political philosophy: the relationship between law and violence. The first part of the essay shows why and in what precise sense the law is irreducibly violent; the second part establishes the possibility of the law becoming self-reflectively aware of its own violence. The volume contains responses by María del Rosario Acosta López, Daniel Loick, Alessandro Ferrara, Ben Morgan, Andreas Fischer-Lescano and Alexander García Düttmann. It concludes with Menke's reply to his critics.

Dalhuisen on Transnational Comparative Commercial Financial and Trade Law Volume 1

This is the seventh edition of the leading work on transnational and comparative commercial, financial, and trade law, covering a wide range of complex topics in the modern law of international commerce and finance. As a guide for students and practitioners it has proven to be unrivalled. The work is divided into three volumes, each of which can be used independently or as part of the complete work. Volume 1, in the first chapter, covers the roots and foundations of private law; the different origins, structure, and orientation of civil and common law; the forces behind the emergence of a new transnational commercial and financial legal order, its meaning, concepts, and operation; the theoretical basis of the transnationalisation of the law in the professional sphere in that order; its methodology and the autonomous sources of the new law merchant or modern lex mercatoria, its international finance-driven impulses, and its relationship to domestic and transnational public policy and public order requirements. The second chapter covers the transnationalisation of dispute resolution in that order, especially international arbitration, and contains a critical analysis of the main challenges to its success, continuing credibility, and effectiveness. All three volumes may be purchased separately or as part of a single set.
