Editor in Chief Mansour,Camille
This yearbook, now in its 11th volume, is a primary source of information on significant and topical legal issues relating to the Palestinian territories. It provides, in a single annual volume, not only leading articles on topics of major interest to the international legal community, but also key legislation, court decisions, legal cases, treaties, resolutions, special reports, and other relevant legal material translated from the original Arabic or Hebrew into English. This particular volume is devoted specifically to the question of Palestinian refugees and includes: a comparison of the international legal framework designed to protect refugees with the framework already established for the protection of Palestinian refugees; an examination of the various pieces of legislation enacted to "legally" confiscate Palestinian lands; raising the question as to how the plight of Palestinian refugees may be addressed in the international legal system; legal precedents regarding refugees, including the Dayton accord and UN Resolutions; various agreements signed over the course of the past year; a detailed bibliography of books, monographs and articles; and a comprehensive index. This volume, as with its predecessors, should prove an invaluable source of reference and record on the complex legal issues relating to the Palestinian territories, and will be of prime interest to legal practitioners, researchers, scholars and anyone involved in law, politics, human rights or international relations who has an interest in this region.448pp.

Drawing from groundbreaking research at the Santa Fe Center for Emergent Strategies, new insights on applying complexity thinking in business to break out of old patterns and imagine new possibilities. In Open Boundaries , Howard Sherman and Ron Schultz bring fresh insights from the field of complexity thinking (the study of dynamic, adaptive systems) to unleash creativity and innovation throughout the organization by helping readers understandand even challengethe underlying principles, cognitive models, and rules that govern their decisions and actions. Showcasing the pioneering efforts of such organizations as diverse as Applied Biosystems and the U.S. Marine Corps, the authors illustrate the power of complexity in actionfrom creating new markets to spreading emerging knowledge throughout the company. }Todays businesses are constantly under pressure to innovateto develop new products, processes, and even organizational structuresin order to remain vibrant and healthy. But many businesses fall into the trap of doing more of the same, only faster. How can they break free of old patterns without overextending their resources or losing sight of their core goals and capabilities?In Open Boundaries, Howard Sherman and Ron Schultz bring fresh, new insights from the field of complexity thinkingthe study of dynamic evolving systemsto unleash creativity and innovation throughout the organization. Drawing from their groundbreaking research at the Santa Fe Center for Emergent Strategies, the authors challenge readers to explore the underlying principles, cognitive models, and rules that govern their decisions and actions to revealand, more importantly, overcomeobstacles to innovation and growth. Open Boundaries introduces a practical vocabulary to help managers understand, analyze, and nurture the creative process by eschewing linear cause-and-effect approaches to decision making in favor of an approach that thrives on ambiguity and unpredictability. Showcasing the pioneering efforts of such organizations as Xerox-PARC, Applied Biosystems, Patagonia, and the United States Marine Corps, the authors vividly illustrate the power of complexity thinking in actionfrom creating new markets to establishing new ways of spreading emerging knowledge throughout the company.Ultimately, Open Boundaries is about ideas, the most powerful of which is realizing that organizations are not mechanical entities, but living systems that are constantly adjusting and adapting to both internal and external forces of change. By embracing this perspective, businesses can become far more creative, innovative, and profitable than they might have ever thought possible.

Editors Heath,Christopher and Liu,Kung-Chung
Despite the harmonizing effect of TRIPS and intellectual property law in general, technology transfer remains firmly rooted in domestic contract law and public policy. However, similarities in legal culture across many national borders keep this problem to a minimum endash until we approach the technologically advanced countries of East Asia. For practitioners worldwide working with technology transfer in this culturally heterogeneous part of the world, Legal Rules of Technology Transfer in Asia is a godsend. For each of nine significant technology market jurisdictions--the PRC, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia--this nuts-and-bolts approach to the applicable national rules provides all necessary legal information and guidance. Country chapters by local authorities are structured to cover the following essential factors: + government policy on technological research and transfer; + intellectual property system; + licensing agreements; + registration and notification; + dispute resolution; + tax considerations; + transfer of patents; + choice of law questions; + franchising; + publicity and merchandising; + anti-trust rules. and many other in Two introductory chapters provide a much-needed perspective on technology transfer in the context of the world trade regime as it especially affects East Asia, with an emphasis on the trend to clarify and strengthen anti-trust rules. A concluding chapter surveys the market anthropology of the region and offers an expert assessment of the probable future development of technology transfer trade in the region. With its first-hand, in-depth, country-by-country analysis, and its firm grasp on a diversity of relevant legal and cultural issues, Legal Rules of Technology Transfer in Asia is unexcelled for desktop use in offices handling East Asian trade in technology products. 278pp.
