Yu, Guanghua; Gu, Minkang
China's company and commercial law is still in formation, but its emerging patterns contain many practical elements that can be of immediate use to business people and their counsel. This guide presents not only the current disposition of such elements, but also an analysis, by two outstanding Chinese legal scholars with US, UK, and Canadian experience, of likely developments in the future. As well as providing an understanding of the legal issues affecting transactions in China, this book offers systematic treatment of such business factors as: procedural aspects of setting up a business in China; business incentives and restrictions; contracts; competition; taxation; property rights; protection of creditors; regulation of foreign trade and investment; regulation of financial markets; insolvency; and intellectual property rights.592pp.N.B.Rear board slightly marked.

Edited By Dorn,Nicholas
Throughout Europe from town halls and regional governments, through national Parliaments and ministries, to the high institutions of the European Union there runs a vigorous debate on organized crime, municipal safety and private conduct. Drug problems and what to do about them so often sit at the intersection of these debates. As for legal responses, throughout the 1990s the focus of attention has been primarily on the criminal law. New criminal offenses have been created, partly in response to influences from above (from international and European agreements) and partly in response to pressure from below (concerns of citizens at national and sub-national levels). But although criminal law certainly is important as far as the development of drug controls is concerned, it is by no means the whole story. There is a parallel history, a regulatory one, consisting of the increasing use of administrative measures, some of which are directly concerned with drugs whilst others are more general but equally applicable. These responses, together with civil law, variously function as adjuncts to criminal law, or as alternatives to it, in relation to drug trafficking at European and national levels, drug-related public nuisance as it concerns citizens at municipal level, and drug users. 302pp.N.B.Small fade mark at base of d/j spine.

Edited By Welsh,Brandon C. And Farrington,David P.
Crime prevention should be rational and should be based on the best possible evidence. Decision-makers should weigh heavily any available evidence on what works best. How can a program that has produced no discernable evidence of effectiveness, as shown through numerous evaluations, be considered for implementation? Unfortunately, this happens all the time. Evidence-based crime prevention attempts to overcome this and other obstacles by ensuring that the best available evidence is considered in any decision to implement a program designed to prevent crime. This book is about evidence-based crime prevention. A project of the Campbell Collaboration Crime and Justice Group, "Preventing Crime" brings together the leading scientific evidence on what works best for a wide range of interventions organized around four important domains in criminology: at-risk children, offenders, victims, and places. It is the first book to assess the effectiveness of criminological interventions using the most rigorous review methodology of the systematic review. It is an indispensable guide to the leading scientific evidence on what works best to prevent crime. 243pp.

Bayefsky, Anne F.
The human rights treaties are at the core of the international system for the promotion and protection of human rights. Their power to translate rights into remedies, however, requires greater access to the system by victims of human rights violations. This volume is about access and empowerment. It will facilitate the ability of victims to complain about violations of their rights to an international body, and to have their complaints measured against clear standards. Although this system of enforcement remains open only to those whose rights have been violated by states that have permitted complaints, the complaints procedures of the UN treaty system apply to one-quarter of the world's population. With this volume Professor Bayefsky makes the international complaints procedure arising from the UN human rights treaty system available to individuals, lawyers, non-governmental organizations, and human rights advocates in many parts of the world. She begins by identifying the common features of the four complaints procedures under each of the four treaties. Each treaty is then examined in greater detail. Consideration is finally given to questions of overlap and the choice of a forum. The annexes provide the practical tools for filing a complaint. 384pp.
