Editor Cohen,Jonathan
These books are presented in a slipcase. The text is featured in Hebrew and English. This festschrift is presented as a gift to Professor Michael Rosenak in tribute to his unique and pioneering contribution to Jewish Education in general and to the Philosophy of Jewish Education in particular. The list of contributors to these volumes includes experts in the different disciplines of Jewish Studies, academics that apply the scholarly tools of the Social Sciences to the study of Jewish education, scholars interested in the interdisciplinary aspects of Jewish Studies and their implications for Jewish education, educational leaders and directors of visionary educational institutions. Colleagues, students and friends have all contributed enquiries into the issues that have stood at the centre of Mike's professional concerns. "Languages and Literatures in Jewish Education" thus invites the reader to participate in the ongoing dialogue on the key issues of Jewish existence and education today.

Verloop, Peter and Sanders,Valerie Editors
Merger control in Europe has continued to evolve rapidly. In addition to significant changes in the national merger control regimes in Denmark, France, Germany, the United Kingdom and Portugal, a new EU Merger Regulation is expected to enter into force on 1 May 2004 - a measure that will launch the most far-reaching reform of European merger control since the adoption of the EC Merger Regulation in December 1989. This updated edition offers practitioners expert guidance through the next phase of this crucial aspect of business and economic activity in Europe. Like earlier editions, this edition of "Merger Control in Europe" introduces practitioners and interested academics to the issues of merger control which are relevant when preparing an acquisition within the European Union. In order to provide insight into problem areas at each national level, and to allow possible comparisons, it includes a chapter on each of the 14 EU countries with a merger control regime, as well as one on the EU itself. In addition, as a first step towards the expected enlargement of the European Union in 2004, this edition welcomes contributions on Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic and Cyprus. For each jurisdiction, the major elements of merger control law - the definition of concentration, control or notification thresholds, procedure and substantive test clearance or appraisal, as well as other issues unique to each country - are all covered in some detail. For any of the jurisdictions, the practitioner should quickly be able to determine the precise scope of such important considerations as the following: concept of concentration; notification requirements; procedural time-frame; sanctions for violation of procedural rules; special rules governing banks, building and loan associations, the media sector, insurance and other specific areas of business; political intervention possibilities; publicity and confidentiality; consultation of works council; co-operation within the framework of the European Competition Authorities (ECA); test for clearance; economic benefits and disadvantages analysis; what constitutes substantial lessening of competition; remedies (both behavioural and structural); and appeal against decisions regarding the test for clearance. Each chapter, written by one or more practising lawyers from major European law firms, is grounded in the relevant law and takes into account changes in legislation and recent decisions. The book also contains a detailed introductory 20-page chart allowing readers to compare the basic elements of merger control law in all of the countries covered and in the EU.431pp.

Gagnier De Mendoza, Mary Jane
Almost twenty years ago, a young Canadian woman, Mary Jane Gagnier, travelled through Mexico on a journey of self-exploration. One evening on the zocalo in Oaxaca, she met a weaver from the nearby village of Teotitlan del Valle, who offered his uncles' help in repairing her broken clarinet. Shortly thereafter the two were married, and rather instantly the Ontario native with wanderlust found herself intimately immersed in the culture and traditions of her new home. Fiestas are synonymous with Mexico and daily ceremonial rituals and celebrations are at the center of Oaxaca's spiritual and social life. Gagnier de Mendoza chronicles the festival cycle in Teotitlan, a Zapotec village located fifteen miles from the capitol. The fiestas here center on the complex art of hosting, whether for family gatherings or religious ceremonies that involves traditional cooking and flower arranging, candle making and fireworks. Throughout the year, village brass bands regularly line the streets in processions featuring plumed dancers and masked actors. Beginning with Christmas posadas through Fiesta of the Black Christ of Esquipulas, pre-wedding and wedding celebrations, Lent and Holy Week, post-Easter revelry celebrating the patron saints, to the conclusion of the festival cycle with Day of the Dead, this memoir chronicles the spirit-life of an ancient community that day after day honors its gods as itself. 159pp.
