The intimate, inspiring, and authoritative biography of Sandra Day O'Connor, America's first female Supreme Court justice, drawing on exclusive interviews and first-time access to Justice O'Connor's archives--by the New York Times bestselling author Evan Thomas. "She's a hero for our time, and this is the biography for our time."--Walter Isaacson She was born in 1930 in El Paso and grew up on a cattle ranch in Arizona. At a time when women were expected to be homemakers, she set her sights on Stanford University. When she graduated near the top of her law school class in 1952, no firm would even interview her. But Sandra Day O'Connor's story is that of a woman who repeatedly shattered glass ceilings--doing so with a blend of grace, wisdom, humor, understatement, and cowgirl toughness. She became the first ever female majority leader of a state senate. As a judge on the Arizona Court of Appeals, she stood up to corrupt lawyers and humanized the law. When she arrived at the United States Supreme Court, appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1981, she began a quarter-century tenure on the Court, hearing cases that ultimately shaped American law. Diagnosed with cancer at fifty-eight, and caring for a husband with Alzheimer's, O'Connor endured every difficulty with grit and poise. Women and men who want to be leaders and be first in their own lives--who want to learn when to walk away and when to stand their ground--will be inspired by O'Connor's example. This is a remarkably vivid and personal portrait of a woman who loved her family, who believed in serving her country, and who, when she became the most powerful woman in America, built a bridge forward for all women. Advance praise for First "A great storyteller has found his greatest subject in trailblazer Sandra Day O'Connor. Evan Thomas has written one of the most insightful and thoroughly captivating biographies I have ever read: A clear and compelling illumination of Sandra Day O'Connor's unique voice and place in American history is told through her remarkable life's journey from a rancher's daughter to the first woman appointed to the highest court in the land."--Doris Kearns Goodwin, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Leadership: In Turbulent Times "A vivid, humane, and inspiring portrait of an extraordinary woman and how she both reflected and shaped an era."--Drew Faust, president emerita, Harvard University
Belligerent occupations existed in both World Wars and have occurred more recently in all parts of the world (including Iraq, Afghanistan, the former Yugoslavia, Congo, Northern Cyprus, Nagorno-Karabakh, Georgia, Eritrea and Ethiopia). Owing to its special length - exceeding half a century and still in progress - and the unprecedented flow of judicial decisions, a special focus is called for as regards to the occupation of Palestinian territories by Israel. International law addresses the subject of belligerent occupation in some detail. This second, revised edition updates the text (originally published in 2009) in terms of both State practice and doctrinal discourse. The emphasis is put on decisions of the Security Council; legislation adopted by the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq; and predominantly case law: international (Judgments of the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia and the European Court of Human Rights; Advisory Opinions and Arbitral Awards) as well as domestic courts.

After canvassing the most recent literature in neuroscience, empirical philosophy, behavioural psychology, social capital theory, development economics, the capabilities approach and emergent experimental governance, The Selfless Constitution suggests that the promotion of experiments in living, married to a commitment to the expansion of individual capabilities, is likely to produce more optimal ways of being that can be replicated, and further enhanced, by other members of our polity. The book spins out its novel thesis against the concrete backdrop of political arrangements and judicial doctrines that have emerged during the first 18 years of South Africa's truly vibrant constitutional democracy. Its trenchant analysis of South African institutions and case law shows us how far we have come and how far we still have to go.
Law as Engineering proposes a radically new way of thinking about law, as a profession and discipline concerned with design rather than with litigation, and having much in common with engineering in the way it produces devices useful for its clients. It uses that comparison to propose ways of improving legal design, to advocate a transformation of legal ethics so that the profession learns from its role in the crash of 2008, and to reform legal education and research. Offering a totally new perspective, this book will be a fascinating read for law students and prospective law students, legal academics across all sub-fields, lawyers in government, especially those engaged in drafting legislation, and policymakers.

Embroidery has been used through the ages to enhance ordinary household items from tea cloths to bed linen, from towels to monogrammed serviettes. In the rush of modern-day life where everything is mass-produced, embroidery has become something of a lost art. Funky stitches takes a fresh look at this craft and provides ideas for fun and funky designs, inspired by anything from urban graffiti and children's drawings to nature. An introductory section deals with practical matters such as fabrics, threads, needles, designs and how to transfer them, how to make up embroidered items and much more. The stitches are clearly illustrated and are simple enough for a beginner to master. There are more than 30 room-by-room projects, from the nursery to the kitchen, with suggested variations to show how the same basic design can be used to decorate or create a range of items with a similar theme. Every project in the title is accompanied by full instructions, templates and a colour photograph of the finished item.
Administrative law is concerned with the interaction between a government and its citizens, which occurs in areas of immense practical importance to ordinary citizens, such as health care, education, public housing and social security benefits. Determining the manner in which such interaction should take place is a continuing focus of the law in democratic states. Comparing administrative justice across the commonwealth examines a range of themes relevant to administrative justice. It begins by considering it in a constitutional context, and then proceeds to compare fundamental concepts of administrative law as they have developed in different Commonwealth countries. This is followed by studies of specific countries and a discussion of practical steps that have been taken to enhance the quality of administrative justice. This title provides a unique multifaceted insight into the development of administrative justice and the jurisprudential as well as practical questions to be considered in promoting it.
Research on executive compensation has exploded in recent years, and this volume of specially commissioned essays brings the reader up-to-date on all of the latest developments in the field. Leading corporate governance scholars from a range of countries set out their views on four main areas of executive compensation: the history and theory of executive compensation, the structure of executive pay, corporate governance and executive compensation, and international perspectives on executive pay. The authors analyze the two dominant theoretical approaches - managerial power theory and optimal contracting theory - and examine their impact on executive pay levels and the practices of concentrated and dispersed share ownership in corporations. The effectiveness of government regulation of executive pay and international executive pay practices in Australia, the US, Europe, China, India and Japan are also discussed. A timely study of a controversial topic, this Handbook will be an essential resource for students, scholars and practitioners of law, finance, business, and accounting.
Whilst the science of conservation biology is thriving as a discipline, ultimately global conservation is failing. Why, when the majority of people say they value nature and its protection? David Johns argues that the loss of species and healthy ecosystems is best understood as human imposition of a colonial relationship on the non-human world - one of exploitation and domination. Global institutions benefit from transforming nature into commodities, and conservation is a low priority. This book places political issues at the forefront, and tackles critical questions of conservation efficacy. It considers the role of effective influence on decision making, key policy changes to reduce human footprint, and the centrality of culture in mobilising support. It draws on political lessons from successful social movements, including human anti-colonial struggles, to provide conservation biologists and practitioners in scientific and social science disciplines and NGOs with the tools and wider context to accelerate their work's impact.

Children are in need of support not due to any fault on their part but due to their circumstances. Local authorities have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and provide services to those 'in need'. Children in Need is a comprehensive and accessible handbook that sets out the statutory obligations of local authorities to support vulnerable children and families, including children in, and leaving, custody, disabled children, migrant children and families, trafficked children and children leaving care.

Children in Need is up to date to include: * detailed coverage of the new guidance, Working together to safeguard children (2013) and its impact * analysis of recent key cases, including R(KO) v Lambeth LBC and R(VC) v Newcastle City Council * Case-law developments in respect of duties to migrant children and their families, following the judgment in Clue * details of the new National Standards for Youth Justice Services (2013) Children in Need is essential reading for claimant lawyers, advocates, voluntary and statutory sector advisers, local authority lawyers and frontline staff, social workers and academics. It is intended to assist all those who work with and for children 'in need' and their families to understand and apply the law to the benefit of vulnerable children.
EU Labour Law is a concise, readable and thought-provoking introduction to the labour and employment law of the European Union. The book explores the subject's major policy themes, examines the various procedures by which EU labour law is made, and analyses key topics such as worker migration, equality, working time and procedures for workers' participation in employers' decision-making. It sets the legal materials in their policy context and identifies the important issues which have shaped the development of EU labour law and are likely to determine its future, including the economic crisis and the debate about fundamental rights in the EU. This accessible yet rigorous book will appeal to undergraduate and postgraduate law students, academics and practitioners working on domestic and EU labour and employment law, as well as those with an interest in this increasingly important subject from the perspective of business and management, economics, sociology or politics.
In this well-researched and detailed book, the editors provide an extensive and critical analysis of post-Soviet regional integration. After almost two decades of unfulfilled integration promises, a new - improved and functioning - regime emerged in the post-Soviet space: the Eurasian Customs Union between Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan (ECU). The contributors seek to explain this puzzling and politically significant development by examining the ECU's origins, institutional architecture, key driving forces and emerging implications. Their investigation reveals that the ECU is an ambitious and fast moving project in deep economic integration, yet its legal design is complex and member states are driven by a precarious balance of diverse motives. Nevertheless, as the contributions to the volume indicate, the emergence of the ECU already carries important external implications, especially for the EU's strategy in the post-Soviet space. Being the first comprehensive and systematic study of the new Eurasian economic integration regime, this book will appeal to academics and students of regional integration, international relations and international law, Russian studies, Post-Soviet politics, as well as Central Asian studies.
Blending theory with real-life applications, the 8th Edition of LAW AND ETHICS IN THE BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT presents modern issues and the latest in case law for an exciting and thought-provoking text.

Insightful cases, end-of-chapter questions, historical quotes, and chapter projects sharpen critical thinking skills, while a wealth of interactive assignments like role plays, mock trials, roundtables, and more prepare you for the ethical and legal dilemmas of the business world.
Private Enforcement of Antitrust Law in the United States is a comprehensive Handbook, providing a detailed, step-by-step examination of the private enforcement process, as illuminated by many of the country's leading practitioners, experts, and scholars. Written primarily from the viewpoint of the complainant, the Handbook goes well beyond a detailed cataloguing of the substantive and procedural considerations associated with individual and class action antitrust lawsuits by private individuals and businesses. It is a collection of thoughtful essays that delves deeply into practical and strategic considerations attending the decision-making of private practitioners. This eminently readable and authoritative Handbook will prove to be an invaluable resource for anyone associated with the antitrust enterprise, including both inexperienced and seasoned practitioners, law professors and students, testifying and consulting economists, and government officials involved in overlapping public/private actions and remedies.
