An Inquiry into the Existence of Global Values
58,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The world appears to be globalising economically, technologically and even, to a halting extent, politically. This process of globalisation raises the possibility of an international legal framework, a possibility which has gained pressing relevance in the wake of the recent global economic crisis. But for any international legal framework to exist, normative agreement between countries, with very different political, economic, cultural and legal traditions, becomes necessary. This work explores the possibility of such a normative agreement through the prism of national constitutional norms. Since 1945, more than a hundred countries have adopted constitutional texts which incorporate, at least in part, a Bill of Rights. These texts reveal significant similarities; the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, for instance, had a marked influence on the drafting of the Bill of Rights for South Africa, New Zealand and Hong Kong as well as the Basic Law of Israel. Similarly, the drafts of Eastern European constitutions reflect significant borrowing from older texts. The essays in this book examine the depth of these similarities; in particular the extent to which textual borrowings point to the development of foundational values in these different national legal systems and the extent of the similarities or differences between these values and the priorities accorded to them. From these national studies the work analyses the rise of constitutionalism since the Second World War, and charts the possibility of a consensus on values which might plausibly underpin an effective and legitimate international legal order.

PRAISE FOR BONDS FOR CANADIANS &quote;Andrew Allentuck is one of the premiere financial journalist covering fixed income markets from a uniquely Canadian perspective. His knowledge of the bond market is second to none.&quote; --Randy LeClair, CFA, Vice-President & Portfolio Manager, AIC Investment Services Inc. &quote;Andrew Allentuck's new book explains the complexities of the bond market to Canadians in an engrossing and deliciously entertaining manner. Superbly written, Bonds for Canadians is both a blueprint for financial prosperity as well as a delightful and often humorous look at the most misunderstood and idiosyncratic of markets. I wish this book had been around 26 years ago when I began my career.&quote; --Tom Czitron, CFA, Managing Director, Head of Bonds and Fixed Income, Sceptre Investment Counsel Ltd. &quote;Canadian retail investors are largely in the dark on how bonds work or how to incorporate them into their investment strategy...That is, until now. Deconstructing what is often considered the most cerebral of financial markets, Mr. Allentuck provides an engaging, entertaining and anecdoteladen account of what boods are, how they work and why they matter more now than ever. This is the sort of book that every serious retail investor should carry around, dog-eared and rolled, in his back pocket.&quote; --Martin Cej, Investment Editor, The Globe and Mail &quote;Bonds for Canadians shows how to escape the roller-coaster of risks of the stock market while generating a tidy fortune for retirement. It's an important contribution to financial planning.&quote; --Daniel F. Stonach, Registered Financial Planner, President, Stronach Financial Group Inc.

The Geobiology and Ecology of Metasequoia
233,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The plant fossil record provides evidence that the genus Metasequoia was widely distributed and experienced a wide range of climatic and environmental conditions throughout the Northern Hemisphere from the early Late Cretaceous to the Plio-Pleistocene. Today the genus is limited to one species with approximately 5,000 mature individuals growing in the Xiahoe Valley in southeastern China. This book is a distillation of the collective efforts and results of the world's Metasequoia specialists and enthusiasts. It is the most up-to-date and comprehensive reference source for the genus and the authors have sought to incorporate obscure, hard-to-get and non-English reference sources. The book reviews what is known about the biology, ecology and physiology of fossil and living Metasequoia, current research directions and problems that remain unresolved. This book presents a definitive overview of fossil and living Metasequoia and was written by sixteen of the world's experts on this important genus. Given the reality of increasing human pressure and the inevitability of global change, efforts to conserve this ancient genus are underway. TOC:I: Fossil Metasequoia and History.- The Evolution and Biogeographic History of Metasequoia.- Paleoecology and History of Metasequoia in Japan, with Reference to its extinction and Survival in East Asia.- A High-Resolution Palynological Analysis, Axel Heiberg Island, Canadian High Arctic.- Metasequoia in the Oligocene Bridge Creek Flora of Western North America: Ecological Implications and The History of Research.- Gunther's Travels: The Odyssey of Metasequoia Seeds from the 1920s?- II: Cuticle, Ultrastructure and Biomolecules.- Cuticle Analysis of Living and Fossil Metasequoia.-Ultrastructural Preservation in Middle Eocene Metasequoia Leaf Tissues from the Buchanan Lake Formation.- Biomolecules from Livig and Fossil Metasequoia: Biological and Geological Applications.- III: Ecology and Ecophysiology.- Ecological Characteristics of Metasequoia glyptostroboides.- Physiological Ecology of Metasequoia glyptostroboides Hu et Cheng.- Competitive Advantages of Metasequoia in Warm High Latitudes.- IV: Cultivars And Horticulture.- Selecting and Propagating New Cultivars of Metasequoia.- Cultivars of Metasequoia glyptostroboides.- A Conservation Plan for Metasequoia in China.
