Yu, Guanghua; Gu, Minkang
China's company and commercial law is still in formation, but its emerging patterns contain many practical elements that can be of immediate use to business people and their counsel. This guide presents not only the current disposition of such elements, but also an analysis, by two outstanding Chinese legal scholars with US, UK, and Canadian experience, of likely developments in the future. As well as providing an understanding of the legal issues affecting transactions in China, this book offers systematic treatment of such business factors as: procedural aspects of setting up a business in China; business incentives and restrictions; contracts; competition; taxation; property rights; protection of creditors; regulation of foreign trade and investment; regulation of financial markets; insolvency; and intellectual property rights.592pp.N.B.Rear board slightly marked.

Belton, Brian
Fay Taylour was the most successful woman speedway rider ever. Her short but meteoric career spanned just a few years in the late 1920s until women were banned from the Speedway in 1930. In these few years, Fay made a name for herself first in Trials riding, in which she won several Gold Medals, and then in Speedway, one of the toughest of all sports on a motorcycle. Fay competed against, and beat, most of the well known male speedway riders in the UK, Australia and New Zealand and became something of a legend - the Queen of Speedway! This book is a biography of Fay and especially her motorcycle years in trials and speedway. It is a fascinating account of a truly remarkable woman and the early years of speedway in England, Australia and New Zealand. 217pp.

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.
