Gallagher, Peter
As the ultimate arbiter in the global trade regime, the dispute settlement system of the World Trade Organization (WTO) is a body whose workings should be known to business people and their counsel everywhere. Here is a book - reviewed for accuracy by the WTO but written independently - that provides an uncomplicated but thorough explanation of the system, its purpose, its rules, and the role it plays in the management of the international economy. Peter Gallagher, a former trade negotiator and a specialist in the Uruguay Round agreements, answers such questions as: what sort of disputes does the WTO deal with?; can business or citizens use the WTO dispute system?; is it possible to get a temporary injunction to stop some action?; how much does it cost a to bring a case?; how far can you keep on appealing a decision?; what processes does a Panel follow?; what does the Appellate Body review?; what process does the Appellate Body follow?; how does intervention by other parties affect a dispute? As a handy guide to "bringing a case" before the WTO, or responding to a case already in progress, this easy-to-use book should prove an ideal starting point for lawyers, business people, or government officials confronted with a disputable trade issue. 148pp.

Frank,Philipp
This was a major work of the physicist turned philosopher, Philipp Frank. Already known for his papers on mathematical physics, and for his collaboration with the philosophers and scientists in the Vienna Circle, Frank developed his early essays of 1907-08 on causal law and human experience into this expository and critical treatise of 1931. How useful the logical empiricist requirement to formulate a "scientific philosophy" was, is demonstrated by Frank's clarifications of the strengths as well as limitations of the several concepts linked to causal explanation, and indeed by his analysis of misuse, what he called metaphysical, obscure misinterpretations. Among the historically significant topics in this classical treatise on science and its humanist import are Laplace's determinist hypothesis, loss of causal simplicity in field concept, causality and miracles, lawfulness in biology, cause and chance, conservation laws and causal laws, irreversibility of natural processes, and "true" world. The work is a classical treatise and should therefore be of interest to university collections in philosophy, physics and history of science. It should appeal to philosophers of science, modern empiricists, historians of science and those interested in the history of the Vienna Circle.Edited by Robert S.Cohen.Translated by Marie Neurath and Robert S.Cohen.299pp.

Aberg, Martin
At the start of the twentieth century, political parties had the potential to focus grass-roots interest in the development of modern, democratic nation-states. Yet all the new parties were met with suspicion across Europe, particularly among liberals. These popular misgivings and the way the liberals nevertheless managed to build a party are the subject of this book. In this book, historian Martin Aberg argues that because of liberalism's individualistic traits, which left liberals less susceptible to political organisation on a mass basis, party members had to come to an uneasy compromise between individual and collective action. Aberg compares two regions - Varmland in Sweden and Schleswig-Holstein in Germany - which historically both had a significant liberal presence. Despite its organisational shortcomings, liberalism in Sweden paved the way for the peaceful democratisation of the state. In Germany, however, liberalism turned conservative, foreshadowing the extreme nationalism and Nazism that was to come. Aberg argues that the peculiarities of organisational behaviour go some way to explain the very different outcomes. 246pp.
