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.429pp.

Edited By Johannsen, Lars and Pedersen, Karin Hilmer
Political and economic developments after the implosion of the Sovjet Union have not been easy, nor have outcomes been similar. In this book the different trajectories of political development in post-communist countries are traced through cases from within the post-communist region that exhibit maximum variation in terms of both background variables and outcome. Six countries - Kazakhstan, Geogia, Estonia, Slovenia, the Czech Republic and Poland - have been selected. Following the Tocquevillian tradition, a 'method' of indirect comparison where in-depth knowledge of a country based on linguistics and history is held up against existing concepts, six country specialists have drawn broad pictures of what characterises 'their' country in terms of political and economic reform, state building and nation building, at the same time placing developments within the international context. The book argues that the elite constellation along two dimensions - consensus about the direction of policy and institutions, and the extent of inclusion of elite interests in decision making - is specific to each country and points to the direction of future developments. 170pp.

Pearman, Hugh; Whalley, Andrew
The Eden Project is the largest plant enclosure in the world. Its biomes have captured imaginations worldwide and become the visual trademark of a destination that attracted two million visitors in its first year of opening. The biomes are the work of Nicholas Grimshaw & Partners, a practice with an international portfolio including the Waterloo International Terminal and Berlin Stock Exchange. The practice has won over 100 architectural awards for its projects, which are characterized by structural legibility and integrity. This book tells the story of Eden's conception, design and construction and looks to the future of this ever-evolving project. Its carefully chosen photographs and drawings reveal the virtuosity and sublime beauty of the structures, while an authoritative essay places them in the distinguished tradition of the glasshouse. Head and tail of spine and D/J spine slightly bumped. Slight dent to front D/J. Corners of D/J slightly rubbed.119pp.
