Jobert,Marc
Often, the success of court actions depends upon the effectiveness of provisional remedies, conservatory measures or summary judgments taken before or in lieu of the main proceedings. A good decision, obtained after years of effort, is of no use if it cannot be enforced because the debtor's assets have disappeared. This text provides a guide through the web of preliminary actions that can be taken in order to ensure the successful seizing of assets. This practical guide answers questions such as: what is a Mareva Injunction and how can it be used effectively?; what is a refere, in France, Belgium and several other countries, and how can it save the plaintiff years of litigation?; and how can assets be seized in Hong Kong on the basis of a German judgment concerning an Australian living in Turkey? Within each country, each topic is clarified using a comprehensive example, which allows the reader to see the theory in action. "Summary Proceedings" covers the following countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Cameroon, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, The Netherlands, Hong Kong, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Korea, Luxembourg, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland, Tunisia, Turkey and the USA. 411pp.

Alvesson, Mats; Willmott, Hugh
The book begins by examining why we should question notions of management as a neutral `technology' with no moral commitments and consequences, and the role of critical reflection in such questioning. It introduces Critical Theory in the context of other critical traditions in management and the social sciences, and then explores various core management sub-disciplines, examining dominant perspectives within each specialism. In the final section, the authors consider the possibilities for synthesis between the insights and ideals of Critical Theory and progressive elements in current management thinking. They discuss theoretical implications and issues of practice, in teaching and research in the field, and for managers themselves in their organizational settings. 246pp. N.B. Some HIGHLIGHTING throughout.

Horowitz, Asher
Asher Horowitz explores the philosophies of Levinas and the critical theorists of the Frankfurt School, demonstrating the ways in which their works diverge from and complement each other. As Horowitz explains, the manner in which these thinkers are here related to each other resembles Adorno's suggestion, or even program, for thinking in constellations. Demonstrating an authoritative command of both the thinkers themselves - including Benjamin, Horkheimer, and Marcuse - and the various philosophical contexts (German idealism, phenomenology, Marxism, psychoanalysis) in which they are embedded, Horowitz offers a politically thoughtful and philosophically provocative analysis based on a wide range of texts and a critical reconstruction and confrontation between the positions.While a few studies have previously addressed the philosophical relationship between Levinas and Adorno, in particular, "Ethics at a Standstill" is unique in arguing that each of these ways of thinking calls forth from the other, respectively, a social-critical and ethical supplement that is insufficiently developed in their own work. 404pp.
