Rosiek, Jan
This is a comprehensive interpretation of Paul de Man's theoretical itinerary prior to his emergence as the doyen of deconstruction in America. The book includes sections on Hegelian poetics, Heidegger's thought, and romanticism, the main areas in which de Man carried out his critical work before 1970. His encounters with dialectical negations in Mallarme and Blanchot, Heidegger's existential analytic poetics of Being, the antagonism of symbol and allegory in Benjamin, and Derrida's deconstruction of Rousseau all present opportunities for tracing the figures which, in various guises, remained crucial in de Man's Theory: being inaccessible, intention unfulfillable, truth unattainable - in brief, figures of failure. 247pp. N.B. Corners bumped. Spine slightly scuffed.

Edited By Walkey,M.,Swingland,I. And Russell,S.
Protected areas have become an increasingly important tool both in the conservation of biodiversity and in revenue generation through sustainable use. This is the only sure way to guarantee the protection necessary for many species, habitats and ecosystems in the future. Integrated Protected Area Management features contributions that consider the design, management and sustainable use of these regions. Three principal aspects are considered: + the theory and practice of designation + community-based conservation and the concept of sustainability + identifying priorities for management. The emphasis throughout is on the importance of an interdisciplinary approach to planning and the active involvement of all stakeholders in decision-making processes as a means of ensuring long-term sustainability. 299pp.

Edited By Cremades,Bernardo M.
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.
