Despite increasing visibility of same-sex relationships in South Africa, there remains a distinct lack of research and public discussion around same-sex family practices and related legislative and social issues. This new collection of essays, interviews and images seeks to address this critical information gap by both capturing recent scholarship and documenting the challenges and experiences of same-sex partnered families. By bringing together work from diverse academic and professional disciplines - as well as visual materials from two recent exhibitions - this unique collection will play a crucial role in promoting further research into LGBTI families in South Africa. Topics covered include the theory and context of LGBTI families in South Africa; the legislative framework; media representations of same-sex families; assisted reproduction technology - challenges, experiences and understandings; parenting practices; disclosure practices within families; and intimate partner violence.
In this insightful book, Massimo Fichera provides an original account of European integration as a process - completed by the creation of the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice. The study builds upon a demonstration of how European constitutionalism has been informed by a meta-rationale, which is expressed by security and fundamental rights as discourses of power. The book uses this conceptual framework to analyse the development of the EU as a polity. Chapters cover significant recent crises, including the Eurozone, refugees, the rule of law, Brexit and constitutional identity. These events are not only recognized as being political shocks, but more meaningful and long-lasting occurrences which have had, and will continue to have, a deep impact on the development of the EU as a legal and political system. In light of this, the variety of crises that have recently affected the EU are discussed with thought given to their impact as an interlinking whole. Adeptly combining both theoretical and doctrinal analysis, this book will appeal to students and scholars of both EU law and politics, as well as those interested in legal and political theory more widely. Government officials, policymakers and practitioners will also find this a stimulating read.

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.

The "Introduction to Communication" series is a seven-book series developed by the Department of Communication of the University of South Africa (UNISA) as a successor to the Communicamus monographs. Covering topics in interpersonal, small-group, organizational and mass communication, the series forms the basis of UNISA's undergraduate programme in communication studies. Its graphic, interactive format complemented by an informal style makes it suitable for use by anyone needing insight into one of our most natural but complicated tools - communication. Each chapter gives the reader an overview, a list of key terms and a set of learning objectives before introducing its content. Activities reinforce and expand learning through self-evaluation, a concluding summary contextualises new knowledge and suggested-reading lists encourage further learning. The communication series is being revised and modularised along outcomes based education principles. The new series will be very suitable for semesterised courses.
Die doel van hierdie boek is om `n eerste inleiding tot die sakereg vir `n elementere kursus oor hierdie onderwerp te verskaf. Inleiding tot die Sakereg is spesifiek vir studente in so `n eerste kursus geskryf, en daarom is die inhoud beperk tot wat die outeurs as essensieel vir hierdie studente beskou. Vir dieselfde rede is voetnote nie gebruik nie; in `n inleidende kursus behoort die klem op die verstaan van basiese konsepte en beginsels te val eerder as op verdere bronne en materiaal. Daar is egter wel uitvoerig van voorbeelde uit die regspraak gebruik gemaak. Inleiding tot die Sakereg poog om die sakereg in die nuwe konstitusionele konteks uiteen te sit, en daarom is enkele hoofstukke oor die konstitusionele beskerming van eiendom en grondhervorming ingesluit. Hierdie nuwe uitgawe word ook as deel van Juta se Property Law Library gepubliseer omdat die doel, van daardie reeks is om die wisselwerking tussen die gemenereg, die grondwet en regshervorming in `n konstitusionele stelsel te illustreer. Synde `n inleiding is die boek anders as die ander volumes in die reeks in die sin dat dit spesifiek op studente gerig is.

An expos (c) of fragmented trading platforms, poor governance, and exploitative practices in today (TM)s capital markets Capital markets have undergone a dramatic transformation in the past two decades. Algorithmic high-speed supercomputing has replaced traditional floor trading and human market makers, while centralized exchanges that once ensured fairness and transparency have fragmented into a dizzying array of competing exchanges and trading platforms. Darkness by Design exposes the unseen perils of market fragmentation and oedark markets, some of which are deliberately designed to enable the transfer of wealth from the weak to the powerful. Walter Mattli traces the fall of the traditional exchange model of the NYSE, the world (TM)s leading stock market in the twentieth century, showing how it has come to be supplanted by fragmented markets whose governance is frequently set up to allow unscrupulous operators to exploit conflicts of interest at the expense of an unsuspecting public. Market makers have few obligations, market surveillance is neglected or impossible, enforcement is ineffective, and new technologies are not necessarily used to improve oversight but to offer lucrative preferential market access to select clients in ways that are often hidden. Mattli argues that power politics is central in today (TM)s fragmented markets. He sheds critical light on how the redistribution of power and influence has created new winners and losers in capital markets and lays the groundwork for sensible reforms to combat shady trading schemes and reclaim these markets for the long-term benefit of everyone. Essential reading for anyone with money in the stock market, Darkness by Design challenges the conventional view of markets and reveals the troubling implications of unchecked market power for the health of the global economy and society as a whole.

"Persuasive and brilliantly written, the book is especially timely given the rise of trillion-dollar tech companies."--Publishers Weekly
From the man who coined the term "net neutrality," author of The Master Switch and The Attention Merchants, comes a warning about the dangers of excessive corporate and industrial concentration for our economic and political future.
We live in an age of extreme corporate concentration, in which global industries are controlled by just a few giant firms -- big banks, big pharma, and big tech, just to name a few. But concern over what Louis Brandeis called the "curse of bigness" can no longer remain the province of specialist lawyers and economists, for it has spilled over into policy and politics, even threatening democracy itself. History suggests that tolerance of inequality and failing to control excessive corporate power may prompt the rise of populism, nationalism, extremist politicians, and fascist regimes. In short, as Wu warns, we are in grave danger of repeating the signature errors of the twentieth century.
In The Curse of Bigness, Columbia professor Tim Wu tells of how figures like Brandeis and Theodore Roosevelt first confronted the democratic threats posed by the great trusts of the Gilded Age--but the lessons of the Progressive Era were forgotten in the last 40 years. He calls for recovering the lost tenets of the trustbusting age as part of a broader revival of American progressive ideas as we confront the fallout of persistent and extreme economic inequality.
Jag is ’n avontuur wat jou wegvoer van vier mure na die oop ruimtes van groot Afrika en jou laat kennis maak met ontbering en volharding, met lekker spog en lekker eet. En die oog, die kamera en die sakboekie vervang nie in een dag die jagroer nie. P.J. Schoeman se naam was vir geslagte Afrikaanslesers sinoniem met verhale waarin natuurkennis en natuurgevoeligheid saampraat. Vir diegene wat as jong lesers met Schoeman kennis gemaak het, sal die lees van hierdie hersiene heruitgawe ’n nostalgiese ervaring wees – ’n erfenis om aan vandag se jong lesers oor te dra.
Shadows of Doubt reveals how deeply stereotypes distort our interactions, shape crime, and deform the criminal justice system. If you're a robber, how do you choose your victims? As a police officer, how afraid are you of the young man you're about to arrest? As a judge, do you think the suspect in front of you will show up in court if released from pretrial detention? As a juror, does the defendant seem guilty to you? Your answers may depend on the stereotypes you hold, and the stereotypes you believe others hold. In this provocative, pioneering book, economists Brendan O'Flaherty and Rajiv Sethi explore how stereotypes can shape the ways crimes unfold and how they contaminate the justice system through far more insidious, pervasive, and surprising paths than we have previously imagined. Crime and punishment occur under extreme uncertainty. Offenders, victims, police officers, judges, and jurors make high-stakes decisions with limited information, under severe time pressure. With compelling stories and extensive data on how people act as they try to commit, prevent, or punish crimes, O'Flaherty and Sethi reveal the extent to which we rely on stereotypes as shortcuts in our decision making. Sometimes it's simple: Robbers tend to target those they stereotype as being more compliant. Other interactions display a complex and sometimes tragic interplay of assumptions: "If he thinks I'm dangerous, he might shoot. I'll shoot first." Shadows of Doubt shows how deeply stereotypes are implicated in the most controversial criminal justice issues of our time, and how a clearer understanding of their effects can guide us toward a more just society.
