Timms, Edward
This is an unusual narrative in that it successfully combines subjectivity - how an English person was led by a sequence of educational developments, personal encounters and historical constraints to become the founder of the German-Jewish Centre at the University of Sussex; and objectivity - a book that introduces English and American readers to an important and evolving field of historical and cultural studies through intellectual autobiography. It documents the formative experiences of a scholar who was to become a pioneering teacher and researcher in the field of German culture and politics. The aim is to relate the shaping of self to the drift of history in a period of radical social change, extending from the refugee crisis caused by Hitler's seizure of power through the ordeals of the Second World War to post-war reconstruction, and the transformation of Britain into a modern multicultural society. The focus is on the formative role of institutions: vicarage childhood, Anglican schooling, Cambridge and other university environments - especially the new map of learning at Sussex University in the 1960s. The 'Torch' in the title alludes to the transmission of a radical intellectual tradition and to a specific commitment to the study of Die Fackel, the satirical journal edited by Karl Kraus in Vienna from 1899 to 1936. From this emerged the innovative agenda developed by the Centre for German-Jewish Studies. 315pp.

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.
