Verloop, Peter and Sanders,Valerie Editors
Merger control in Europe has continued to evolve rapidly. In addition to significant changes in the national merger control regimes in Denmark, France, Germany, the United Kingdom and Portugal, a new EU Merger Regulation is expected to enter into force on 1 May 2004 - a measure that will launch the most far-reaching reform of European merger control since the adoption of the EC Merger Regulation in December 1989. This updated edition offers practitioners expert guidance through the next phase of this crucial aspect of business and economic activity in Europe. Like earlier editions, this edition of "Merger Control in Europe" introduces practitioners and interested academics to the issues of merger control which are relevant when preparing an acquisition within the European Union. In order to provide insight into problem areas at each national level, and to allow possible comparisons, it includes a chapter on each of the 14 EU countries with a merger control regime, as well as one on the EU itself. In addition, as a first step towards the expected enlargement of the European Union in 2004, this edition welcomes contributions on Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic and Cyprus. For each jurisdiction, the major elements of merger control law - the definition of concentration, control or notification thresholds, procedure and substantive test clearance or appraisal, as well as other issues unique to each country - are all covered in some detail. For any of the jurisdictions, the practitioner should quickly be able to determine the precise scope of such important considerations as the following: concept of concentration; notification requirements; procedural time-frame; sanctions for violation of procedural rules; special rules governing banks, building and loan associations, the media sector, insurance and other specific areas of business; political intervention possibilities; publicity and confidentiality; consultation of works council; co-operation within the framework of the European Competition Authorities (ECA); test for clearance; economic benefits and disadvantages analysis; what constitutes substantial lessening of competition; remedies (both behavioural and structural); and appeal against decisions regarding the test for clearance. Each chapter, written by one or more practising lawyers from major European law firms, is grounded in the relevant law and takes into account changes in legislation and recent decisions. The book also contains a detailed introductory 20-page chart allowing readers to compare the basic elements of merger control law in all of the countries covered and in the EU.431pp.

Crump, Robert L.
Prior to World War I, printmaking in the United States was, with a few exceptions, primarily the domain of commercial enterprises that produced largely picturesque European scenes or depictions of popular towns on the East Coast. Prints of Minnesota scenes, especially by Minnesota artists, formed a very small part of American art exhibits. Robert Crump relates the fascinating story of Minnesota's graphic arts world and its growth from provincialism to part of a national movement, showing how art printing - etchings, woodcuts, lithographs, drypoints, monotypes, and silk screens - blossomed after the turn of the last century. He chronicles the support of the federal government during the 1930s and the important role played by local organisations such as the Minneapolis Institute of Art, the Walker Art Center, and the Minneapolis School of Art (now the Minneapolis College of Art and Design). This book offers short biographies of and sample prints by nearly two hundred printmakers, including Wanda Gag, Adolf Dehn, George Resler, Miriam Ibling, Syd Fossum, Gilbert Fletcher, and Gustav Goetsch. Crump's eye for memorable images makes the handsome volume a pleasure to behold for collectors and readers interested in Minnesota art. Notes on printing techniques and several appendices help newcomers appreciate the challenges of printmaking. 194pp.
