Olver, Ian N.
This is an original contribution to the much debated area of the value that we should place on human life. With the euthanasia issue highlighted in the public arena this book argues for a non-absolutist highest value on life ethic and how that fits with society's current emphasis on individual autonomy. Not only are the arguments for and against placing a highest value on life explored but the way of arguing particularly the use of slippery slopes is discussed. By the use of everyday examples the impact of placing a high value on life is explored. A futuristic intensive care ward round illustrates the ethical and resource issues with which we would be challenged in adopting a highest value on life policy for medical decisions. This book will be useful for students of ethics, nursing and medicine as well as those engaged in the public debate on euthanasia. 165pp.

This text contains the papers presented at the 1998 Vancouver IBA Conference. The leading experts in international commercial arbitration presented their point of view from their respective countries on the situation of arbitration in Latin America. They reached the conclusion that international commercial arbitration in Latin American countries is in a state of good health, after analyzing: the general ratification of the international arbitration regulatory conventions; the legislative amendments enacted in the different parliaments; and the judicial activity in Latin American countries, in which case law, with its inevitable surprises, follows the lines of the best case law in countries familiar with arbitration. Many ad hoc arbitrations are being held, but, above all, the statistics from the arbitration administrative institutions demonstrate the importance of arbitration in Latin America. The usage of bi- or multilateral treaties of international public law to protect investments, as a basis for setting up the arbitral proceedings for international private law, confirms the prosperity of arbitral proceedings in Latin America.120pp.

Grewlich, K.W.
"Cyberspace" is the emerging invisible, intangible world of electronic information and processes stored at multiple interconnected sites. The digital revolution leads to "convergence" (of telecommunications, computer/Internet and broadcasting) and to dynamic multimedia value chains. Deregulation and competition are major driving forces in the new interactive electronic environment. This volume contains normative proposals for "cyber"-regulation, including self-regulation, grounded on developments in the EU, US and the Far East, in international organizations (WTO, OECD, WIPO, ITU), in business fora, in NGOs, in the "Internet community" and in academic research. The multi-actor (government, business, civil society) and multi-level analysis (subsidiarity) pertains, for example to ex-ante and ex-post access-regulation, competition, network economics (external effects, essential facilities), public interest principles (human dignity, free speech, privacy, security), development and culture, consumer protection, cryptography, domain names and copyright.432pp.

It is indisputable that the way armed conflict is conducted has changed dramatically in the last half of the 20th century. The contributions to this volume accept the reality of these changes, and seek to assess the efficacy of certain aspects of international humanitarian law. The volume commences with a critical evaluation of the 1977 Protocols additional to the four Geneva Conventions of 1949. Subsequent chapters consider increasing protection for women and minorities in armed conflict; efforts to control the weapons of war; and identifying the law applicable to peace operations. 225pp.

The origins of free movement of persons in the European Union are to be found in a conference held at King's College London, organized by the Immigration Law Practitioners' Association and the Centre of European Law at King's College, with the sponsorship of the European Commission. Published to mark the 30th anniversary of that conference, this book is divided into two sections, the first of which deals with the implementation of rights of nationals in the European Union to move, reside and pursue economic activities in other member-states. The second part looks at the development of European law regulating the movement, residence and economic activities of third-country nationals within the territory of the Union. The two sections are analyzed both by reference to the black-letter law and the social consequences attendant upon migration within the European Union. 175pp.
