Philipp, Klaus Jan
Slight bump to corner of front cover and d/j. This title features text in English and German. Numerous buildings have been added to the uvre of Hilmer & Sattler and Albrecht since the year 2000, when the first book about the architects' work was published. The Berlin practice has tied itself more closely to historical models with its buildings in Potsdamer and Leipziger Platz and also at the Lenne-Dreieck, now rearranged in urban development terms, with the Beisheim Center and the Ritz-Carlton Hotel and Apartment Tower, while the Munich buildings in Karl- Scharnagl-Ring or on the Theresienhohe keep to a formal language more closely related to Modernism. The new residential buildings in Berlin and Munich, usually intended for particularly wealthy clients, tackle new urban-development and design, which means that Hilmer & Sattler und Albrecht are continuing one of the practice's important fields of activity. One particular jewel is the little museum to house a reconstruction of the famous Gottorf Globe, in the Baroque garden of Schloss Gottorf near Schleswig. In this small building, as also in the Picasso Museum in Munster, the architects set off a firework display of ideas and references from European architectural history, making it possible to speak of an intellectual game with the history of architecture. Hilmer & Sattler and Albrecht have thus once more identified themselves as leading representatives of a building culture oscillating between relating to the present and understanding tradition properly. 247pp.N.B.Bottom right corners slightly bumped with no effect on contents.

This yearbook, now in its 11th volume, is a primary source of information on significant and topical legal issues relating to the Palestinian territories. It provides, in a single annual volume, not only leading articles on topics of major interest to the international legal community, but also key legislation, court decisions, legal cases, treaties, resolutions, special reports, and other relevant legal material translated from the original Arabic or Hebrew into English. This particular volume is devoted specifically to the question of Palestinian refugees and includes: a comparison of the international legal framework designed to protect refugees with the framework already established for the protection of Palestinian refugees; an examination of the various pieces of legislation enacted to "legally" confiscate Palestinian lands; raising the question as to how the plight of Palestinian refugees may be addressed in the international legal system; legal precedents regarding refugees, including the Dayton accord and UN Resolutions; various agreements signed over the course of the past year; a detailed bibliography of books, monographs and articles; and a comprehensive index. This volume, as with its predecessors, should prove an invaluable source of reference and record on the complex legal issues relating to the Palestinian territories, and will be of prime interest to legal practitioners, researchers, scholars and anyone involved in law, politics, human rights or international relations who has an interest in this region.429pp.
