Klostermann,Judith E.m. And Tukker,Arnold Editors
Systematically addressing the drivers, the tools, and sector-specific elements that play a role in the field of sustainable development, this text begins with a general introduction to eco-efficiency and the related challenges to industry in its implementation. It then presents 23 case studies, almost all written by industrial experts who tell how they deal with the challenge: what the motivators are, what tools can be used and how they can be implemented, and what are the specific elements in sectors like building, electronics and packaging. These contributions come from multinationals such as Unilever, Procter & Gamble, Akzo Nobel, Philips and Ciba-Geigy, as well as small and medium-sized enterprises from such sectors as the building and furniture trades. N.B.Spine faded.

Black, Georgina Dopico
In "Perfect Wives, Other Women", Georgina Dopico Black examines the role played by women's bodies - specifically the bodies of wives - in Spain and Spanish America during the Inquisition. In her quest to show how both the body and soul of the married woman became the site of anxious inquiry, Dopico Black mines a variety of Golden Age texts for instances in which the era's persistent preoccupation with racial, religious, and cultural otherness was reflected in the depiction of women. Subject to the scrutiny of a remarkable array of gazes-inquisitors, theologians, religious reformers, confessors, poets, playwrights, and, not least among them, husbands - the bodies of perfect and imperfect wives elicited diverse readings.Dopico Black reveals how imperialism, the Inquisition, inflation, and economic decline each contributed to a correspondence between the meanings of these human bodies and 'other' bodies, such as those of the Jew, the Moor, the Lutheran, the degenerate, and whoever else departed from a recognised norm. The body of the wife, in other words, became associated with categories separate from anatomy, reflecting the particular hermeneutics employed during the Inquisition regarding the surveillance of otherness. Dopico Black's compelling argument will engage students of Spanish and Spanish American history and literature, gender studies, women's studies, social psychology and cultural studies. 307pp. N.B.

Butcher, Bruce S.
Written from the perspective of a practising company lawyer, this work is principally concerned with two broad duties owed by directors of British and Australian companies: to act honestly, in good faith and for proper purposes; and to exercise care and diligence. Public attitudes towards directors have altered since the mid-1980s, and the business community has raised its expectations of directors. In response to this shift in public feeling, parliament and the judiciary are adopting a new approach to directors' duties, widening the scope of duties imposed on directors and encouraging a more rigorous approach to corporate governance. This text analyzes this new approach, with reference to English and Australian case-law, and explores the courts' attempts to deal with the myriad of competing interests found within the morass of legal rules, equitable principles and statutory enactment which comprise modern company law. In examining modern case-law and legislation, the author addresses some of the more contentious and controversial issues which directors in the 21st century will need to confront in order to properly discharge the legal, equitable and statutory requirements of their office. The subject of directors' duties is of theoretical and practical importance, from economic, political as well as social perspectives. This text should be of use to all lawyers, policymakers, academics and researchers working in this complex and rapidly changing field of the law. 379pp.
