Andrews III,William Lee
Outer space is in constant use. Most obviously, billions of "packets" of information travel through it every day, for the infinitely various purposes of countless people and organizations. Space platforms increasingly provide important research data for businesses, institutions, and governments. Taxation issues are inevitable. In fact, tax planners have for several years been engaged in designing tax incentives to enhance the development of space commerce. A significant focus of this book is an in-depth evaluation of the current US discussion of tax rules designed to stimulate space commerce in 2001. The debate is placed squarely in its complete context of historic developments and constraints, prevailing tax law (in this case the US internal revenue code), and the body of international and national space law that began with the 1967 Space Treaty. Comparative analysis is provided by examination of corresponding schemes evolving in Canada, Japan, Australia, and France. Specific events, developments, issues, and probabilities dealt with in "The Taxation of Space Commerce" include the following: the economic significance of the Challenger launch in 1986; the value of F.J. Turner's classic "frontier" thesis for understanding the "new frontier" of space; the Commercial Space Launch Act of 1984 (US); the role of the US internal revenue code's foreign tax credit; the 1979 Moon Treaty; remote-sensing and nuclear power; the 1998 Inter-Governmental Space Station Agreement; case law, especially Smith v. United States; multinational vs. unilateral taxation schemes; benefits of space commerce for society as a whole; and competitiveness and economic efficiency. As a major contribution to the literature of space law and tax law, this text aims to fill an important need. Beyond that, it is a work which should be of value not only for taxation specialists and communications industry executives and their counsel, but for any enterprise with an eye to the not-too-distant future. 144pp.

Symons, Caroline
The Gay Games is an important piece of new social history, examining one of the largest sporting, cultural and human rights events in the world. Since their inception in 1980, the Gay Games have developed into a multi-million dollar mega-event, engaging people from all continents, while the international Gay Games movement has become one of the largest and most significant international institutions for gay and lesbian people. Drawing on detailed archival research, oral history and participant observation techniques, and informed by critical feminist theory and queer theory, this book offers the first comprehensive history of the Gay Games from 1980 through to the Chicago games of 2006. It explores the significance of the Games in the context of broader currents of gay and lesbian history, and addresses a wide range of key contemporary themes within sports studies, including the cultural politics of sport, the politics of difference and identity, and the rise of sporting mega-events. This book is important reading for any serious student of international sport or gender and sexuality studies.
