European Labour Law 13th Revised Edition
(Wolters Kluwer, April 2012)

Roger Blanpain

The vast single labour market of the European Union continues to manifest an ever-increasing interdependence of economies, companies, trade unions and employees, calling once again for an update of Roger Blanpain’s magisterial European Labour Law. This Thirteenth Edition remains the preeminent practice guide in its field, covering the full spectrum – legislation, collective agreements, and more than 400 cases – of both individual and collective labour law and practice from the fundamental freedoms to the significance of the Reform Treaty of Lisbon.

International Economic Organizations and Law. The Perspective and Role of the Legal Counsel

(Wolters Kluwer, March 2012)
Asif H. Qureshi, and Xuan Gao

There can be little doubt that a group of prominent and influential organizations lie at the heart of international economic law (IEL). These include the Bretton Woods institutions, regional development banks and economic organizations, and various specialized global institutions primarily active in norm generation. This volume possesses the unique distinction of presenting the perspectives – both institutional and personal – of legal counsels in some key international economic organizations regarding their work and the role of law within the framework of their organizations, with particular attention to the conditions within which they can optimally contribute to the development of IEL.

The Core Standard of International Investment Protection. Fair and Equitable Treatment
(Wolters Kluwer, March 2012)
Alexandra Diehl

This book surveys and analyses the nature of FET as a “new” rule of customary law that is non-contingent and absolute in that it protects a given entity irrespective of the treatment which may be accorded to others. The overarching questions are: Does the system`s mixture of private arbitration and public law indeed undermine accountability and independence in judicial decision-making? Does it trump principles of legislative supremacy and, in the end, alter a central tenet of representative democracy?

……

North Atlantic Treaty Organization – 2nd edition

(Wolters Kluwer, March 2012)
S Trifunovska

Derived from the renowned multi-volume International Encyclopaedia of Laws, Intergovermental Organizations this practical analysis of the structure, competence, and management of North Atlantic Treaty Organization provides substantial and readily accessible information for lawyers, academics, and policymakers likely to have dealings with its activities and data.

……

Competition Law and Intellectual Property. The European Perspective

(Wolters Kluwer, March 2012)
Giandonato Caggiano, Gabriella Muscolo and Marina Tavassi

This book focuses on the convergent roles of competition law and regulation of IPRs in the context of the European Single Market. The perspectives of the expert authors – judges, academics, and lawyers who gathered in Rome in 2009 for the Annual Conference of the Association of European Competition Law Judges – disentangle and efficiently recombine the diverse threads woven into this complex pattern: the rapidly evolving technical environment, the decentralization process inherent in the ‘Community acquis’, and the lack of a single effective European jurisdiction for IPRs.

……

Convention of Contracts for the International Sale of Goods

(Wolters Kluwer, March 2012)
Joseph Lookofsky

Also sometimes referred to as the Vienna Sales Convention, the Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) regulates the rights of buyers and sellers in international sales. This work covers key areas such as determining when the CISG applies; freedom of contract under Article 6; interpretation of the Convention and of CISG contracts; sales contract formation, validity, defenses to enforcement; obligations of the parties, including conforming delivery & notice of non-conformity; liability and remedies for breach, including specific performance, damages, avoidance; liability exemptions; and reservations under Articles 92-96.

……

The Global Workplace: International and Comparative Employment Law Cases and Materials 2nd Ed

(Wolters Kluwer, March 2012)
Roger Blanpain, Susan Bisom-Rapp, William R. Corbett, Hilary K. Josephs and Michael J. Zimmer

A conceptual framework compares national laws dealing with individual collective employment rights, including antidiscrimination law and privacy law, and considers the systems used to resolve labour and employment disputes in the context of international labour law. A sweeping coverage of international labour law considers the International Labour Organization, NAFTA and other bilateral trade agreements that include labour standards, and the European Union.

Constitutional Paradigms and the Stability of States
(Ashgate, April 2012)

Noel Cox

 This book examines the influence of constitutional legal paradigms upon the political stability and viability of states. It contributes to the literature in the field by focussing on how constitutional flexibility may have led to the rise of ‘successful’ states and to the decline of ‘unsuccessful’ states, by promoting stability. Divided into two parts, the book considers theories of the rise and fall of civilizations and individual states, explains the concept of hard and soft constitutions and applies this concept to different types of state models. A series of international case studies in the second part of the book identifies the key dynamics in legal, political and economic history and includes the UK, US, New Zealand and Eastern Europe.

Humanitarian Law in Action within Africa

(Oxford University Press, 19 April 2012)

Jennifer Moore

  • Examines humanitarian law in action in three African states currently emerging from periods of civil war in a manner that offers guidance to other nations emerging from armed conflict in diverse settings throughout the world.
  • Sets forth the “rules” of international law, starting with an overview of public international law and then discussing four specialized areas of international law that are most inherently responsive to the armed conflict.
  • Describes visionary aspects of international humanitarian law, and considers which goals are most worthy and capable of implementation.
  • Sets forth important arenas within which international norms respond to armed conflict and systemic repression.

……

Religious Liberty in Western and Islamic Law: Toward a World Legal Tradition

(Oxford University Press, 19 April 2012)

Kristine Kalanges

  • Weaves together international and comparative law, religion, international relations, comparative politics, and legal history to illuminate and address the theoretical and practical dimensions of a significant human rights problem.
  • Reframes the religious human rights debate as one that must account for comparative religious context (i.e., not just the contribution of Islamic law to Muslim states, but also the Judeo-Christian contribution to the Western legal tradition)
  • Suggests how the cultivation of a world legal tradition could constitute a new type of foundational consensus based on respect for the religious foundations of law.

Rule of Law after War and Crisis: Ideologies, Norms and Methods

(Intersentia, 2012)

Richard Zajac Sannerholm

Rule of law has emerged as an essential objective in assistance to post-conflict and post-crisis societies, such as Somalia, Kosovo, Liberia, and Egypt. This book provides a critical analysis of past and current rule-of-law promotion, and it argues that, despite past experiences of development and technical assistance, rule-of-law reform in war-torn and crisis societies operates in an autonomous field where the best practices and the lessons learned are rarely, or only superficially, acknowledged.

……

The Duty to Cooperate in International Sales: The Scope and Role of Article 80 CISG

(Sellier, 2012)

Thomas Neumann

The book accounts for the historical background of Article 80, the relation to other provisions (Article 77 and Article 79), the underlying principles, and the connection to good faith. It also argues that the provision is an expression of the duty to cooperate. Furthermore, the conditions for applying the exemption rule and the legal consequences of application are clarified to the benefit of all practitioners. A chapter on homeward trends points out some of the challenges that Article 80 poses to international uniformity. Extensive comparisons to the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts and the Principles of European Contract Law are carried out.
