So seker as wat die dag breek is die derde boek in die Merk van die leeu-reeks. Net soos die vorige twee boeke in die reeks, ’n Stem in die wind en ’n Eggo in die duisternis, neem hierdie boek die leser terug na antieke Rome en die vroeë jare van die Christelike kerk.
So seker as wat die dag breek vertel die verhaal van Atretes en Rispa, die weduwee wat Atretes se seun uit sy verhouding met Julia versorg; ’n seun wat Atretes vir lank geglo het dood is. Hulle lewe en optrede open ons oë vir die vernietigende krag van woede, maar ook die wonderlike krag van vergifnis.
Dit is ’n verhaal vol waarheid en hoop en dit dra die boodskap van God se onvoorwaarlike liefde. Hierdie is Christelike fiksie op sy beste.
In ’n eeue oue kultuur skrikwekkend eenders as die hedendaagse moderne Amerika, veg ’n jong slavin om die behoud van die mense en die man wat sy liefhet.
Verskeur deur haar liefde vir ’n aantreklike jong edelman probeer sy desperaat aan haar geloof in ’n lewende God vashou; ’n God wat sy glo hulle kan verlos van die verslawende mag van ’n dekadente Rome.
Hierdie meesterlike en opwindende roman uit die pen van die gewilde skrywer Francine Rivers is bestem om tot die hart te spreek van elkeen wat dit lees. Die boodskap is een van waarheid en hoop in ’n wêreld vol leuens en wanhoop.
Intellectual property goods are frequently referred to as intangible or abstract. Yet, traditionally, they have almost always needed to be embodied or materialised in order to be protected (and - to a certain extent - to be used and enjoyed), regardless of whether they are copyrighted works, patented inventions or trade marks. With a focus on the issue of access and the challenges of new technologies such as biotechnology and digital technologies, this unique collection analyses the relationship between intellectual property and its physical embodiments. It contains a mixture of theoretical and practical perspectives and encompasses an interdisciplinary approach, including chapters on the connection between intellectual property and cultural heritage law, cultural property law and international trade law. The book furthermore comprises historical reflections that illuminate how intellectual property has never been purely about the intangible. Intellectual Property and Access to Im/material Goods will be of interest to scholars, practitioners and law and policy makers. Users of intellectual property goods such as museums, libraries, archives and/or other cultural institutions, as well as users of biomaterials, copyrighted works, patented inventions and/or trademarked goods, will find value in this book.
The area of conflict of laws in China has undergone fundamental development in the past three decades and the most recent changes in the 2010s, regarding both jurisdiction and choice of law rules, mark the establishment of a modern Chinese conflicts system. Jointly written by three professors from both China and the UK, this book provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive analysis of Chinese conflict of laws in civil and commercial matters, covering jurisdiction, choice of law, procedure, judgment and awards recognition and enforcement, and interregional conflicts in China. Providing comprehensive and sophisticated analysis of current Chinese conflict of laws, the authors assess the actual judicial practice and case decisions. The book takes into account the historic, political and economic background of the subject matter, as well as relevant empirical evidence and data, especially recognizing the contribution of Chinese scholars in the field. It concludes that the Chinese conflicts system has entered into the stage of modernization and proposes policy to improve efficiency, prevent local protectionism, balance internationalization and nationalization, democratize legislative process and improve judicial training and judicial practice. This timely book is an invaluable resource for academics and practitioners in private international law, conflict of laws, international law, international litigation, Chinese law and international civil and commercial matters involving China.
Met die uitbreek van die Anglo-Boereoorlog in 1899 vertrek MJ de Jager as luitenant van die Staatsartillerie van die ZAR na die Natalse front. Hy onderskei homself tydens die veldslae by Modderspruit, Colenso, Ladysmith en Platrand. Na die slag van Donkerhoek op 11 Junie 1900 neem hy vir anderhalfjaar deel aan die guerillafase van die Anglo-Boereoorlog. Op 26 Januarie 1902 word hy in die distrik Ermelo gevange geneem en na St. Helena verban. Hy sit sy militêre loopbaan in die Transvaalse Polisie en die Unie-verdedigingsmag voort. Na die Suidwes-veldtog word hy hoof van die Unie-besettingsmag in die destydse Suidwes-Afrika en vestig hom op ’n plaas naby Windhoek. Hy word uiteindelik tot generaal bevorder, maar sy roemryke loopbaan word deur sy skielike dood in 1939 kortgeknip. De Jager se oorspronklike “Gedenkboek” het ook ’n veelbewoë geskiedenis en word nou vir die eerste keer gepubliseer nadat dit naelskraaps aan die aanslae van vuur en rysmiere ontkom het en daarná vir 60 jaar jaloers deur sy familie bewaar is.
This text provides students with a variety of case materials on different aspects of administartive law. Each chapter begins with a short summary of the law and the legal issues raised in the chapter, followed by extracts from case law. As far as possible, the latest case law is used.
This timely book is an investigation of the highly debated questions: do coroners' recommendations save lives and how often are they implemented? It is the first socio-legal investigation of coroners' recommendations from several countries. Based on an extensive study, it analyses Coroner's Court findings and litigation from Canada, England, Ireland, Australia and Scotland, as well as over 2000 New Zealand coroners' recommendations, and includes more than 100 interviews and over 40 respondents to a survey. The book probes coroners', organisations' and families' experiences of the Coroner's Court in detail and includes substantial quotations from, and discussion of, their experiences. The data analysed demonstrates that while coronial recommendations can be useful tools for intervention and policy development, coroners' contribution to morbidity and mortality prevention at the population level requires further development. In addition to coroners, lawyers, health practitioners, families, organisations and policy makers, researchers from Law, Medicine and the Social Sciences will find this pioneering volume an important and illuminating resource.
"You should definitely read this book... What really struck me in reading Beyond These Walls was that Tony Platt had very seriously and carefully considered the contributions of social movements--feminist, queer, disability, and labor." --Angela Davis Beyond These Walls is an ambitious and far-ranging exploration that tracks the legacy of crime and imprisonment in the United States, from the historical roots of the American criminal justice system to our modern state of over-incarceration, and offers a bold vision for a new future. Author Tony Platt, a recognized authority in the field of criminal justice, challenges the way we think about how and why millions of people are tracked, arrested, incarcerated, catalogued, and regulated in the United States. Beyond These Walls traces the disturbing history of punishment and social control, revealing how the criminal justice system attempts to enforce and justify inequalities associated with class, race, gender, and sexuality. Prisons and police departments are central to this process, but other institutions - from immigration and welfare to educational and public health agencies - are equally complicit. Platt argues that international and national politics shape perceptions of danger and determine the policies of local criminal justice agencies, while private policing and global corporations are deeply and undemocratically involved in the business of homeland security. Finally, Beyond These Walls demonstrates why efforts to reform criminal justice agencies have often expanded rather than contracted the net of social control. Drawing upon a long tradition of popular resistance, Platt concludes with a strategic vision of what it will take to achieve justice for all in this era of authoritarian disorder.

Drawing on the expertise and experience of contributors from a wide range of academic, professional and judicial backgrounds, the Research Handbook on the International Penal System critically analyses the laws, policies and practices that govern detention, punishment and the enforcement of sentences in the international criminal justice context. Comprehensive and innovative, it examines the operation of the international penal system, covering pertinent issues such as non-custodial sanctions, monitoring of conditions of detention, the protection of prisoners under international law and the transfer of prisoners. These aspects are presented in a logical order, linking up with the chronological sequence of the international criminal justice process. Far-reaching, this Handbook also explores broader normative questions related to contemporary human rights law, transitional and restorative justice and victim redress, before exploring contemporary and alternative mechanisms for punishing and overseeing punishment, and possible avenues for development. This up-to-date assessment will provide valuable insights for researchers and students of international criminal law and justice, comparative penal law, penology, prisoners' rights and transitional and restorative justice. Its recommendations for development will also interest international and national officials working in criminal law and justice.
Equality is easy to grasp in theory but often hard to achieve in reality. In this accessible and wide-ranging work, American University law professor Robert L. Tsai offers a stirring account of how legal ideas that aren't necessarily about equality at all--ensuring fair play, behaving reasonably, avoiding cruelty, and protecting free speech--have often been used to overcome resistance to justice and remain vital today. Practical Equality is an original and compelling book on the intersection of law and society. Tsai, a leading expert on constitutional law who has written widely in the popular press, traces challenges to equality throughout American history: from the oppression of emancipated slaves after the Civil War to the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II to President Trump's ban on Muslim travelers. He applies lessons from these and other past struggles to such pressing contemporary issues as the rights of sexual minorities and the homeless, racism in the criminal justice system, police brutality, voting restrictions, oppressive measures against migrants, and more. Deeply researched and well argued, Practical Equality offers a sense of optimism and a guide to pursuing equality for activists, lawyers, public officials, and concerned citizens.

Written by a global group of leading scholars, this wide-ranging Research Handbook provides insightful analysis, useful historical perspective, and a point of reference on the controversial nexus of climate change law and policy, intellectual property law and policy, innovation policy, technology transfer, and trade. The contributors provide a unique review of the scientific background, international treaties, and political and institutional contexts of climate change and intellectual property law. They further identify critical conflicts and differences of approach between developed and developing countries. Finally they put forward and analyse the relevant intellectual property law doctrines and policy options for funding, developing, disseminating, and regulating the required technologies and their associated activities and business practices. The book will serve as a resource and reference tool for scholars, policymakers and practitioners looking to understand the issues at the interface of intellectual property and climate change.
The global landscape has changed profoundly over the past decades. As a result, the making of international law and the way we think about it has become more and more diversified.

The editors have taken an approach which carefully combines theory and practice in order to provide both an overview and a critical reflection of international lawmaking. Comprehensive and well-structured, the book contains essays by leading scholars on key aspects of international lawmaking and on lawmaking in the main issue areas.

The EU is faced with the perpetual challenge of guaranteeing effective enforcement of its law and policies. This book brings together leading EU scholars in law, politics and regulation, to explore the wealth of new legal and regulatory strategies, practices, and actors that are emerging to complement the classic avenues of central and decentralized enforcement. The contributors evaluate the traditional `dual vigilance' framework of enforcement before examining network(ed) enforcement from theoretical, empirical and legal perspectives. They assess innovations in key EU policy fields such as the environment, consumer protection, competition, freedom, security and justice, and economic governance. This multi-disciplinary book will be of use to students and academics in law, political science, regulation and public policy. It will also interest policy-makers in EU institutions, national administrations and courts engaged in the implementation and enforcement of EU law and policy.
