Global Airlines: Competition in a Transnational Industry presents an overview of the changing scene in air transport covering current issues such as security, no frills airlines, 'open skies' agreements, the outcome of the recent downturn in economic activity and the emergence of transnational airlines, and takes a forward looking view of these challenges for the industry.
Since the publication of the second edition in 1999 major changes have occurred in the industry. The 'rules of the game' in air transport are now beginning to change; and it is time to take the story forward. This third edition contains nine new chapters and tackles the following issues amongst others:
* Security: The tragic events of 11 September 2001, followed by the war in Iraq, and the resultant heightened tensions over security and passenger safety.
* Financial instability: the cyclical downturn in economic activity has led some airlines to the verge of bankruptcy. Even some large well-established carriers are not immune from this. How can the industry look to survive?
* Attaining global reach: implications of transborder mergers, open skies agreements and the transatlantic Common Aviation area. Can full globalisation ever be reached?
* Low-cost carriers and e-commerce: as both increase, how much the industry re-structure and deal with issues associated with increased passenger traffic and decreased labour requirements?
* Airport capacity: Air traffic is estimated to grow at a long-term average annual rate of 5 per cent per annum. But many airports in many parts of the world are already reaching their capacity limits. How can this be overcome and are the environmental implications?
Usingup to date data and case studies from major international airlines such as United Airlines, British Airways, and Qantas amongst many others, Global Airlines provides a comprehensive insight into today's global airline industry.
* Addresses the critical issues in the development of the airline industry and considers options for airline strategies and government policies
* Updated to reflect recent developments including security issues, no frills airlines, 'open skies' agreements and the recent downturn in economic activity, and what this means for the future of the industry.
* Facts and theories are interwoven throughout the text

Business Transactions Law, now in its ninth edition, addresses fundamental questions about business transactions: When is a transaction recognised as binding at law? If a transaction is binding, what is its legal effect? Are there any circumstances in which a party is excused from carrying out his side of a transaction? What legal redress does a party have if his opposite number fails without excuse to do what he has promised in terms of the transaction? Apart from this redress, are there any other legal means available to a party to ensure that he receives what he has been promised by the other party? Finally, what is the position if a party, due to financial difficulties, is unable to carry out or complete his side of the transaction? The objective, as with previous editions, is to meet the needs of students and others taking their first steps in the complex field of business transactions law. The aim is also to cover a significant part of the syllabus recommended by the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants. New legislation and case law are included in the ninth edition. The chapters on Interpretation and Credit Agreements have been re-written and other chapters have been revised wherever necessary to reflect legislative changes or developments in the case law. The ninth edition of Business Transactions Law has approximately 200 new case summaries in total.

From 1 May 2011 company law in South Africa was dramatically altered: the 1973 Act which had governed companies for the life-times of most business people and lawyers in South Africa was replaced by the Companies Act of 2008, as amended in March 2011.

A new era of company law dawned, and with it a host of new concepts, rights, remedies, obligations, procedures and sanctions were introduced. These fundamentally affect the way that every business operates and the advice and practice of every lawyer, accountant or other professional adviser.

This title, the first to cover the new Act and the new regulations, provides the hand-holding, the insight, and the understanding that business and their advisers require in order not to be wrong-footed by the new regime.

It is widely recognised that sales and marketing are the two business functions that contribute directly to the bottom line of any organisation.

Marketing is more than a sequence of steps or a strategic process; it is also a mindset that leads to good business philosophy. The marketing mindset focuses wholeheartedly on customers and the satisfaction of customers’ needs while aiming to influence the entire organisation to strive towards customer satisfaction. Sales, on the other hand, is that business function that ultimately closes the deal and brings the customer and the business together. Without sales, the customer would never achieve need satisfaction and the organisation would never meet its objectives. The ultimate goal of meeting the customer’s needs brings these two seemingly different fields together.

Fundamentals of Sales and Marketing serves to provide a fundamental understanding of both sales and marketing by equipping the reader with theoretical knowledge and practical examples that are applicable to a South African context.
