Now in its ninth edition, Walker and Walker's English Legal System is a long established and popular text on the English legal system. Every Law student needs a thorough grounding in the institutions and procedures of the legal system, and this leading text provides clear and authoritativecoverage of the fundamentals. The pace of change in the English legal system has been frantic in recent years, with few structures or procedures remaining unaffected by change. This book has been extensively revised and rewritten to reflect these changes, and it provides a clear exposition and analysis of the main principlesand issues. Coverage of the Human Rights Act 1998 has been significantly expanded, and the sections on civil and criminal procedure have been substantially re-written to reflect the wealth of recent reforms. The implications of the Constitutional Reform Bill 2005 are considered throughout, and there is alsodetailed treatment of the reform of the legal profession. Other changes addressed in this edition include the government's plans for the tribunals system, the expansion of the European Union, and the important changes brought about by the Courts Act 2003.

Following the same structure and philosophy as the two previous editions which have made this work so well respected, the new, third edition of English Legal System in Context offers a fresh approach to this core subject by considering a wider range of issue than can be found in other texts on this field. One example of this expanded approach can be seen in its coverage of the legal justice system. Here the authors consider the police, their powers and the rights of suspects detained at the police station. However, they also examine the world of private policing, the work of environmental health officers and other non-police prosecutors, as well as the role of the public in uncovering crime.

First published in 1829, Walker's Appeal called on slaves to rise up and free themselves. The two subsequent versions of his document (including the reprinted 1830 edition published shortly before Walker's death) were increasingly radical. Addressed to the whole world but directed primarily to people of color around the world, the 87-page pamphlet by a free black man born in North Carolina and living in Boston advocates immediate emancipation and slave rebellion. Walker asks the slaves among his readers whether they wouldn't prefer to "be killed than to be a slave to a tyrant." He advises them not to "trifle" if they do rise up, but rather to kill those who would continue to enslave them and their wives and children. Copies of the pamphlet were smuggled by ship in 1830 from Boston to Wilmington, North Carolina, Walker's childhood home, causing panic among whites. In 1830, members of North Carolina's General Assembly had the Appeal in mind as they tightened the state's laws dealing with slaves and free black citizens. The resulting stricter laws led to more policies that repressed African Americans, freed and slave alike. A DOCSOUTH BOOK.

Daraufhin arbeitet der Autor die gemeinsamen Prinzipien einer Methodenlehre der europaischen Privatrechte heraus und stellt Losungsansatze fur eine europaische Methodenlehre des Privatrechts vor. Der Vergleich der Methode kontinentaler Zivilrechtskodifikationen mit der prajudiziengestutzten Fallrechtsmethodik in England steht dabei im Zentrum.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, this novel about a resilient and courageous woman has become a Broadway show and a cultural phenomenon. A PBS Great American Read Top 100 Pick Celie has grown up poor in rural Georgia, despised by the society around her and abused by her own family. She strives to protect her sister, Nettie, from a similar fate, and while Nettie escapes to a new life as a missionary in Africa, Celie is left behind without her best friend and confidante, married off to an older suitor, and sentenced to a life alone with a harsh and brutal husband. In an attempt to transcend a life that often seems too much to bear, Celie begins writing letters directly to God. The letters, spanning twenty years, record a journey of self-discovery and empowerment guided by the light of a few strong women. She meets Shug Avery, her husband’s mistress and a jazz singer with a zest for life, and her stepson’s wife, Sophia, who challenges her to fight for independence. And though the many letters from Celie’s sister are hidden by her husband, Nettie’s unwavering support will prove to be the most breathtaking of all. The Color Purple has sold more than five million copies, inspired an Academy Award–nominated film starring Oprah Winfrey and directed by Steven Spielberg, and been adapted into a Tony-nominated Broadway musical. Lauded as a literary masterpiece, this is the groundbreaking novel that placed Walker “in the company of Faulkner” (The Nation), and remains a wrenching—yet intensely uplifting—experience for new generations of readers. This ebook features a new introduction written by the author on the twenty-fifth anniversary of publication, and an illustrated biography of Alice Walker including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

T. E. Lawrence became world-famous as "Lawrence of Arabia," after helping Sherif Hussein of Mecca gain independence from Turkey during the Arab Revolt of 1916-18. His achievements, however, would have been impossible without the unsung efforts of a forgotten band of fellow officers and spies. This groundbreaking account by Philip Walker interweaves the compelling stories of Colonel Cyril Wilson and a colourful supporting cast with the narrative of Lawrence and the desert campaign. These men's lost tales provide a remarkable and fresh perspective on Lawrence and the Arab Revolt. While Lawrence and others blew up trains in the desert, Wilson and his men carried out their shadowy intelligence and diplomatic work. His deputies rooted out anti-British soldiers who were trying to sabotage the revolt. Meanwhile, Lieutenant Lionel Gray, a cipher officer, provided a gateway into unknown aspects of the revolt through his previously unpublished photographs and eyewitness writings. Wilson's crucial influence underpinned all these missions and steadied the revolt on a number of occasions when it could have collapsed. Without Wilson and his circle there would have been no "Lawrence of Arabia." Wilson's band mostly fell through the cracks of history into obscurity. "Behind the Lawrence Legend" reveals their vital impact and puts Lawrence's efforts into context, and helping to set the record straight for one of the most beguiling and iconic characters of the twentieth century.
