Lee, Yong-Shik
Among restrictions on imports, safeguard measures are particularly controversial in that they are invoked in the absence of any unfair trade practice. Safeguards interfere substantially with the normal stream of trade, and their improper application undermines the objectives of the WTO. Recent WTO cases have brought the attention of trade lawyers to the absence of comprehensive materials on this complex subject, and highlighted the need for a reliable guide to the WTO rules on safeguards. Dr. Y.S. Lee, perhaps the world's foremost authority on safeguard measures, has provided such a guide, here updated in its second edition. Readers may expect from this book comprehensive coverage on safeguards to date with legal analysis of the important issues in the interpretation and application of the current rules on safeguards. The author also proposes modifications to enhance and clarify the discipline of safeguards. The crucial issues raised include the following: economic and political justifications of safeguards; applicability of GATT Article XIX; interpretation and application of the Agreement on Safeguards, including nondiscriminatory application of safeguards and justification of safeguards-in-response; transitional product-specific safeguard measures against China; and, emergency safeguards to trade in services. The focus of the book is on the WTO Agreement on Safeguards, as interpreted by WTO Panel and Appellate Body reports in key cases, including Korea' Dairy Products, Argentina's Footwear, United States' Wheat Glutten, United States' Lamb Meat, Chile's Price Band System, United States' Line Pipe and United States' Steel Products. Dr. Lee summarizes the various key findings and provides lucid and well-balanced analysis of these reports. "Safeguard Measures in World Trade" comes at a time when safeguard measures continue to mount in various parts of the world and a possible domino effect can destabilize the international trading system. It will be of inestimable value to government officials, trade lawyers, international business people, and academics in trade law and related fields. 265pp.

Zhivov, Victor
Victor Zhivov's magisterial "Language and Culture in Eighteenth-Century Russia" tells the story of the creation of a new vernacular literary language in modern Russia, an achievement arguably on a par with the nation's extraordinary military successes, territorial expansion, development of the arts and formation of a modern empire. The language served as the primary vehicle for Russia's modernization and for its entry into the Western European cultural sphere, and Zhivov demonstrates that the unusually intense debates over it, down to violent disagreements over particular grammatical endings, have profound implications for understanding the basic social, political, and cultural dynamics of the era. "Language and Culture" analyzes the European theories concerning modern literary languages that were transplanted into Russia and demonstrates the ways in which they were creatively transformed when adapted to the complex legacy of medieval and seventeenth-century literary culture. Zhivov traces this creative adaptation from the "hybrid Slavonic" of the late seventeenth century; through Peter the Great's demand for a new Russian vernacular literary language; to the "Slaveno-Russian" linguistic and cultural synthesis of mid-century and the beginnings of a Russian literary tradition; to the early nineteenth-century debates between "archaists and innovators"; and fi nally to the subsequent decoupling of secular and religious language and culture that in his view represented the last echo of eighteenth-century debates. Language and Culture in Eighteenth-Century Russia fundamentally revises much of the received wisdom concerning the development of the literary language and offers fundamentally new perspectives on the genesis and development of modern Russian language, literature, and culture. 506pp. N.B. Head and tail of spine and D/J spine very slightly bumped.
