Chemical engineering - as a recognized skill in the workplace, as an academic discipline, and as an acknowledged profession - is scarcely a century old. Yet from a contested existence before the First World War, chemical engineering had become one of the "big four" engineering professions in Britain, and a major contributor to Western economies by the end of the 20th century. The subject had distinct national trajectories. In Britain - too long seen as shaped by American experiences - the emergence of recognized chemical engineers was the result of professional aspirations and contingency, and shaped by a shifting ecology of institutions, firms and government. Drawing upon extensive archival research, this book examines the evolution of technical practice, working environment and social interactions of chemical engineering. It should be of considerable interest to historians, sociologists of the professions, and to practitioners themselves. Volume 20 in Chemists and Chemistry series.347pp.

This book features text in English and Spanish. In 2000, the Autostadt, a show park for the Volkswagen group and its subsidiaries from Seat via Audi to Bentley and Lamborghini, opened in Wolfsburg. Alfredo Arribas designed the Seat Pavilion, and has brought off the brilliant trick of making an essentially reticent building into the focal point of the Autostadt. The structure is like a snail shell, forbidding and closed with the exception of a band of windows that seems to rise directly out of the surface of the lake on the Autostadt site. The irregular curve of the ground plan is reminiscent of a leaf or other forms borrowed from nature. Access is via two elegant ramps floating over the water and the site and thrusting straight into the centre of the pavilion: a homage to the old master, Le Corbusier. And then inside we are confronted with a surprise-packed exhibition landscape: a dazzling synthesis of acoustic and visual impressions that cast their spell over visitors as they walk round. Alfredo Arribas was a provocative newcomer on the architectural scene in Barcelona in the late eighties and is now an international success. He was probably predestined for this job like no other architect. He showed a highly personal flair for presenting spaces and goods from the outset, attracting early attention with his designs for discotheques and bars like the enormous Louie Vega (1988) discotheque, or the Torres de Avila (1990). The expressive tower for the Marugame Hirai Museum (1993) is also part of this creative phase, where forms did not necessarily have to be justified by functional logic. But Arribas' architecture changed into its business suit for the very next commissions. For example, even bankers in their pin-stripe suits feel perfectly at home in the cafeteria he designed for Norman Foster's Commerzbank headquarters in Frankfurt. Arribas is working on two large projects at present: a family entertainment centre in Bari and the Cite des Musiques Vivantes in Montlucon. 49pp.

Edited By Van Empel,Martijn
When we think of European law, we tend to focus on the complex interactions of EU institutions and national legal systems. In reality, European law is revealing itself to encompass an even wider scope than we had imagined. Since 1950, an intricate web of principle and practice has been woven, almost invisibly, by such actors as multinational law firms, trade associations, corporations and trade unions. This "horizontal" aspect has produced norms across Europe in important matters related to the environment, financial services, corporate law and many other areas in which legal concerns are paramount. In the conference from which this book derives, European legal authorities were brought together to see if they could capture the multi-layered nature of the European project as it has actually developed, and in the process discover a framework that might further Europe's continuing commitment to market integration, to the task of harmonizing laws while giving due place to Member State autonomy, and to the growth of participatory democracy. The disparate and shifting set of considerations that make up this view of Community law manifests the emphasis that Pallas Consortium imparts to its teachings and to the research its has spawned. The Consortium - consisting of the Universities of Barcelona (Spain), Bologna (Italy), Essex (Great Britain), LUISS Guido Carli (Italy), Jean Moulin Lyon 3 (France), Konstanz (Germany), Munster (Germany) and Nijemgen (the Netherlands) - draws teachers, many of whom are also practitioners, from most of the Member States of the Union. In the work represented here, nine authors examine the disposition of several broad economic, business, cultural and social issues, elucidating how some have been brought into a constructive balance while others continue to cut across the divide between the Community's priorities and the evolving policies of Member States. In these latter cases, there is some probing for principles that might help guide the choices that must inevitably be made. 157pp.
