Eu Regulation of Gmos - Law and Decision Making for a New Technology (Paperback): Maria Lee Eu Regulation of Gmos - Law and Decision Making for a New Technology (Paperback)
Maria Lee
R883 Discovery Miles 8 830 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are an extraordinary innovation. They raise great expectations of economic prosperity and improved capacity to address pressing problems of poverty and environmental degradation, whilst simultaneously raising great concerns about the type of social and physical world they promise. Finding space in regulation to consider the full range of issues provoked by GMOs is a huge challenge. This book explores the EU's elaborate regulatory framework for GMOs, which extends far beyond the process of their authorisation (or not) for the EU market, embracing disparate legal disciplines including intellectual property, consumer protection and civil liability. The regulation of GMOs also highlights questions of EU legitimacy in a context of multi-level governance, both internally towards national and local government, and externally in a world where technologies and their regulation have global impacts. This book will be of interest to academics and students in both law and social sciences, as well as practising lawyers and policy makers. It addresses questions that are significant for those involved in environmental or food issues, as well as specialists in GMOs.

Keeping pace with planning law is no easy matter. The mass of primary and secondary legislation in this field, allied to local and national policy and guidance, make this the most intensively regulated area of the law. This comprehensive practitioner's handbook covers the widest possible range of planning topics in a single volume and is written for planning practitioners in the private and public sectors. This book combines a readily accessible narrative with a substantial body of footnotes for those looking for more detail when it comes to case law and statutory materials. Planning Law: A Practitioner's Handbook provides answers for the busy planning professional to a whole range of problems which commonly arise in the day-to-day practice of planning practitioners. Its advantage lies in the fact that it is a single up-to-date reference book covering a broad range of topics which might otherwise only be found in a number of specialist texts. It also contains sections on village greens, assets of community value, public rights of way, and gypsies and travellers, all of which impact on the realisation of land for planning purposes. The inclusion of these topics will be of particular value to practitioners in the public sector looking for up-to-date guidance in these fields.

Josh Blackman
R516 R468 Discovery Miles 4 680 Save R48 (9%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Six years after its enactment, Obamacare remains one of the most controversial, divisive, and enduring political issues in America. In this much-anticipated follow-up to his critically acclaimed Unprecedented: The Constitutional Challenge to Obamacare (2013), Josh Blackman argues that, to implement the law, President Obama has broken promises about cancelled insurance policies, exceeded the traditional bounds of executive power, and infringed on religious liberty. At the same time, conservative opponents have stopped at nothing to unravel Obamacare, including a three-week government shutdown, four Supreme Court cases, and fifty repeal votes. This legal thriller provides the definitive account of the battle to stop Obamacare from being 'woven into the fabric of America'. Unraveled is essential reading to understand the future of the Affordable Care Act in America's gridlocked government in 2016, and beyond.

Green vs. Green - The Political, Legal, and Administrative Pitfalls Facing Green Energy Production (Hardcover): Ryan M. Yonk,... Green vs. Green - The Political, Legal, and Administrative Pitfalls Facing Green Energy Production (Hardcover)
Ryan M. Yonk, Randy T. Simmons, Brian C. Steed
R2,540 Discovery Miles 25 400 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Renewable and carbon-neutral energy have been promoted as the future of energy production in the United States. Non-traditional energy sources show promise as alternatives to fossil fuels and may provide a sustainable source of energy in increasingly uncertain energy markets. However, these new sources of energy face their own set of political, administrative, and legal challenges. Green vs. Green explores how mixed land ownership and existing law and regulation present serious challenges to the development of alternative energy sources in the United States. Analytically examining and comparing five green energy sectors; wind, solar, geothermal, biofuel and hydro power, Ryan M. Yonk, Randy T. Simmons, and Brian C. Steed argue that discussing alternative energy without understanding these pitfalls creates unrealistic expectations regarding the ability to substitute "green" energy for traditional sources. The micro-goals of protecting individual areas, species, small-scale ecosystems, and other local environmental aims often limits ability to achieve macro-goals like preventing global climate change or transitioning to large-scale green energy production. Statutes and regulations designed to protect environmental and cultural integrity from degradation directly conflict with other stated environmental ends. Although there is substantial interest in adding clean energy to the grid, it appears that localized environmental interests interfere with broader environmental policy goals and the application of existing environmental laws and regulations may push us closer to gridlock. Green vs. Green provides a fascinating look into how existing environmental law created or will create substantial regulatory hurdles for future energy generations.

Pregnant with the Stars - Watching and Wanting the Celebrity Baby Bump (Hardcover): Renee Ann Cramer Pregnant with the Stars - Watching and Wanting the Celebrity Baby Bump (Hardcover)
Renee Ann Cramer
R1,536 R1,259 Discovery Miles 12 590 Save R277 (18%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

"Check out that baby bump!" Online and print magazines, television shows, and personal blogs are awash with gossip and speculation about pregnant celebrities. What drives our cultural obsession with celebrity baby bumps? Pregnant with the Stars examines the American fascination with, and judgment of, celebrity pregnancy, and exposes how our seemingly innocent interest in "baby bumps" actually reinforces troubling standards about femininity, race, and class, while increasing the surveillance and regulation of all women in our society. This book charts how the American understanding of pregnancy has evolved by examining pop culture coverage of the pregnant celebrity body. Investigating and comparing the media coverage of pregnant celebrities, including Jennifer Garner, Angelina Jolie, Beyonce Knowles, Kristen Bell, M.I.A., Jodie Foster, and Mila Kunis, Renee Cramer shows us how women are categorized and defined by their pregnancies. Their stories provide a paparazzi-sized lens through which we can interpret a complex set of social and legal regulations of pregnant women. Cramer exposes how cultural ideas like the "rockin' post-baby body" are not only unattainable; they are a means of social control. Combining cultural and legal analysis, Pregnant with the Stars uncovers a world where pregnant celebrities are governed and controlled alongside the recent, and troubling, proliferation of restrictive laws aimed at women in the realm of reproductive justice and freedom. Cramer asks each reader and cultural consumer to recognize that the seeing, judging, and discussion of the "baby bump" isn't merely frivolous celebrity gossip-it is an act of surveillance, commodification, and control.

Cyberpop - Digital Lifestyles and Commodity Culture (Paperback): Sidney Eve Matrix Cyberpop - Digital Lifestyles and Commodity Culture (Paperback)
Sidney Eve Matrix
R872 Discovery Miles 8 720 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Cyberpop is an analysis of cyberculture and its popular cultural productions. The study begins with a Foucaultian model of cyberculture as a discursive formation, and explains how some key concepts (such as 'virtuality,' 'speed,' and 'Connectivity') operate as a conceptual architecture network linking technologies to information and individual subjects. The chapters then each focus on a particular cyberfiguration, including Hollywood films (GATTACA, The Matrix), popular literature (William Gibson's Neuromancer, Scott Westerfeld's Polymorph), advertising for digital products and services (Apple Computer's '1984/McIntosh' campaign, AT&T's 'mLife' campaign), digital artworks (including virtual females such as Motorola's 'Mya' and Elite Modeling Agency's 'Webbie Tookay,' and work by visual artist Daniel Lee for Microsoft's 'Evolution' campaign), and video games (Tomb Raider). Each close reading illustrates the ways in which representations of digital lifestyles and identities - which typically fetishize computers and celebrate a 'high tech' aesthetic encourage participation in digital capitalism and commodity cyberculture. Matrix argues that popular representations of cyberculture often function as forms of social criticism that creatively inspire audiences to 'think different' (in the words of Mac advertising) about the consequences of the digitalization of everyday life.

Uncertain Risks Regulated (Paperback): Ellen Vos, Michelle Everson Uncertain Risks Regulated (Paperback)
Ellen Vos, Michelle Everson
R767 Discovery Miles 7 670 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Uncertain Risks Regulated compares various models of risk regulation in order to understand how these systems shape the relationship between law and science, and how they attempt to overcome public distrust in science-based decision-making. The book contributes to the ongoing debate relating to uncertainty and risks - and the difficulties faced by the European Union in particular - in regulating theses issues, taking account of both national and international constraints. The term 'uncertain risk' is comparable with notions of hazard and indeterminate risk, as deployed within the social sciences; but it also aims to capture the modern regulatory reality that a non-quantifiable hazard must still be addressed by society, law and its regulators. Decisions must be taken in the face of uncertainty. And, whilst it is not possible to provide clear cut models of risk regulation, in focusing on regulatory practices at a national, EU and international level, the contributors to this volume aim to use fact finding as a core instrument of learning for risk regulation.

The Regulation of Sport in the European Union (Hardcover): Barbara Bogusz, Adam Cygan, Erika Szyszczak The Regulation of Sport in the European Union (Hardcover)
Barbara Bogusz, Adam Cygan, Erika Szyszczak
R2,183 Discovery Miles 21 830 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The purpose of this book is to examine, from an EU perspective, the numerous developments which have taken place in the regulation of sporting activity in the last decade. Uniquely, in addressing these developments, the book adopts an inter-disciplinary approach, involving law, economics and sociology. The chapters place the regulation of sport in the context of the EU regulatory structure which hitherto has emerged in a piece-meal fashion and thus warrants a more holistic approach. The chapters bring together several key themes which arise from the question of whether sport is special? This addresses a growing argument that sporting activity displays unique properties which require a distinct form of regulation that existing competition or free movement rules cannot provide. The book is divided into three parts which reflect the current policy, legislative and judicial discourses that exists in the regulation of sport. The Regulation of Sport in the European Union provides both an academic and practical review of EU law and policy as applied to sport, and as such, this comprehensive overview will be of great interest to EU law academics, economists and political scientists. It will also appeal to legal practitioners and to those with an interest in regulatory processes in the EU.

Anti-Dumping and Countervailing Action - Limits Imposed by Economic and Legal Theory (Hardcover): Philip Bentley, Aubrey... Anti-Dumping and Countervailing Action - Limits Imposed by Economic and Legal Theory (Hardcover)
Philip Bentley, Aubrey Silberston
R1,991 Discovery Miles 19 910 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book, written by a lawyer and an economist both of whom have worked extensively in the field of international trade, offers a challenging and thought-provoking consideration of actions against dumping and export subsidies. Unlike many books in the field which simply set out the relevant international agreements and discuss their interpretation by various regulatory authorities, this book identifies numerous contradictions found in existing law and practice. Many of which, the authors argue, defy economic as well as legal logic. In light of their analysis, the authors propose a number of changes to current law and practice. Whilst they are under no illusion of the likelihood that such changes will occur in the relevant agreements in the near future, it is hoped that through compelling argument they can not only contribute to future debate, but also shape the way these issues are treated in practice. Providing a critical analysis of the commonly used trade measures against dumping and export subsidies, Anti-Dumping and Countervailing Action will be of international interest, especially to regulatory authorities, trade lawyers, trade economists and scholars and students in business school

The Roads from Rio - Lessons Learned from Twenty Years of Multilateral Environmental Negotiations (Hardcover): Pamela Chasek,... The Roads from Rio - Lessons Learned from Twenty Years of Multilateral Environmental Negotiations (Hardcover)
Pamela Chasek, Lynn M. Wagner
R2,546 Discovery Miles 25 460 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

At the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development, popularly known as the Rio Earth Summit, the world's leaders constructed a new "sustainable development" paradigm that promised to enhance environmentally sound economic and social development. Twenty years later, the proliferation of multilateral environmental agreements points to an unprecedented achievement, but is worth examining for its accomplishments and shortcomings. This book provides a review of twenty years of multilateral environmental negotiations (1992-2012). The authors have participated in most of these negotiating processes and use their first-hand knowledge as writers for the International Institute for Sustainable Development's Earth Negotiations Bulletin as they illustrate the changes that have taken place over the past twenty years. The chapters examine the proliferation of meetings, the changes in the actors and their roles (governments, nongovernmental organizations, secretariats), the interlinkages of issues, the impact of scientific advice, and the challenges of implementation across negotiating processes, including the Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Convention to Combat Desertification, the Convention on Biological Diversity, the Commission on Sustainable Development, the UN Forum on Forests, the chemicals conventions (Stockholm, Basel and Rotterdam), the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species, the Convention on Migratory Species and the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture.

Public Choice and Public Law (Hardcover, illustrated edition): Daniel A. Farber Public Choice and Public Law (Hardcover, illustrated edition)
Daniel A. Farber
R4,575 Discovery Miles 45 750 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Public choice theory has become an increasingly significant aspect of public law scholarship. A more comprehensive knowledge of public institutions and their activities can illuminate our understanding of how legal rules shape the behavior of these institutions. This volume gathers together key papers highlighting the fundamental issues in the evolution of this subject. Besides providing an appreciation of the institutional complexity and potential weak points of democracies, public choice theory promises to show how political structures and processes shape outcomes for better or for worse. It thereby aids understanding and improvements to institutional design. Much of that design is expressed in the form of law, so the subject is of particular importance to legal scholars. This authoritative selection of articles provides a firm foundation to this important area of study.

Judith Van Erp, Michael Faure, Andre NollKaemper, Niels Philipsen
R2,118 R1,952 Discovery Miles 19 520 Save R166 (8%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This work offers a multidisciplinary approach to legal and policy instruments used to prevent and remedy global environmental challenges. It provides a theoretical overview of a variety of instruments, making distinctions between levels of governance (treaties, domestic law), types of instruments (market-based instruments, regulation, and liability rules), and between government regulation and private or self-regulation. The book's central focus is an examination of the use of mixes between different types of regulatory and policy instruments and different levels of governance, notably in climate change, marine oil pollution, forestry, and fisheries. The authors examine how, in practice, mixes of instruments have often been developed. This book should be read by anyone interested in understanding how interactions between different instruments affect the protection of environmental resources.

During the five decades since its origin, law and economics has provided an influential framework for addressing a wide array of areas of law ranging from judicial behaviour to contracts. This book will reflects the first-ever forum for law and economics scholars to apply the analysis and methodologies of their field to the subject of wildfire. The only modern legal work on wildfire, the book brings together leading scholars to consider questions such as: How can public policy address the effects of climate change on wildfire, and wildfire on climate change? Are the environmental and fiscal costs of ex ante prevention measures justified? What are the appropriate levels of prevention and suppression responsibility borne by private, state, and federal actors? Can tort liability provide a solution for realigning the grossly distorted incentives that currently exist for private landowners and government firefighters? Do the existing incentives in wildfire institutions provide incentives for efficient private and collective action and how might they be improved?

Climate Change and Catastrophe Management in a Changing China - Government, Insurance and Alternatives (Hardcover): Qihao He Climate Change and Catastrophe Management in a Changing China - Government, Insurance and Alternatives (Hardcover)
Qihao He
R2,067 Discovery Miles 20 670 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

China is the largest greenhouse gas emitter in the world and also suffers from devastating climate catastrophes. Increasingly, policymakers in China have come to realize that government alone cannot adequately prevent or defray climate-related disaster risks. This book contends that a better way to manage catastrophe risk in China is through private insurance rather than directly through the Chinese government. In addition, private insurance could function as a substitute for, or complement to, government regulation of catastrophe risks by causing policyholders to take greater precautions to reduce climate change risks. This book's unique contribution lies in explaining how private sector insurance could be harnessed to better protect China from climate change risks, addressing the shortcomings in China's private sector when it comes to the incentive and capacity to provide catastrophe insurance. Following the dual principles of insurers acting as private risk regulators and the government acting as a last resort, this book proposes a multi-layered public-private catastrophe insurance partnership in China. It uses a thorough combination of law and economics methodology to analyze these issues. Researchers, academics, and journalists writing on climate change in China will have a strong interest in this book, as will practitioners and policy-making bodies, Chinese government officials and agencies in insurance, finance and environmental regulation, private lawyers, private insurers, and global reinsurers.

Global Governance of Food and Agriculture Industries - Transatlantic Regulatory Harmonization and Multilateral Policy... Global Governance of Food and Agriculture Industries - Transatlantic Regulatory Harmonization and Multilateral Policy Cooperation for Food Safety (Hardcover)
Reba Anne Carruth
R3,609 Discovery Miles 36 090 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

As the twenty-first century unfolds, food safety regulation and the governance of regional and global biotechnology markets present new and more complex challenges for governments, agri-food industries and multilateral organizations. The contributors to this comprehensive volume detail the implications of globalization, free trade and regional market integration on the ability of national governments to regulate food safety in the food and biotechnology sectors. In the absence of a global government, the regulation of markets and industries depends on extensive regional and multilateral policy cooperation and regulatory harmonization to protect citizens, farmers and the collective good of nations. As the chapters in this book make clear, the solution to today's food safety problems depends on more than just setting the right regulatory policy and industry standards. On the contrary, food safety now depends on creating the right kinds of transatlantic, regional and multilateral regulatory institutions and policy networks of food safety authorities to establish and enforce global regulations and industry standards. By focusing on the transatlantic, regional and multilateral regulation and governance of food safety, this book offers valuable insight into one of the most pressing international problems of today and sheds light on much larger questions about governance in a global economy. Chapters cover a wide array of countries and regions, from North and South America to Europe, Africa and Asia. The complexity of this issue and the challenges facing national policymakers and networks of regulatory authorities make this volume a must-read for all those involved in the regulation of food and biotechnology industries and the policy institutions charged with regulating them.

Abortion across Borders - Transnational Travel and Access to Abortion Services (Hardcover): Christabelle Sethna, Gayle Davis Abortion across Borders - Transnational Travel and Access to Abortion Services (Hardcover)
Christabelle Sethna, Gayle Davis
R1,008 R851 Discovery Miles 8 510 Save R157 (16%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Safe, legal, and affordable abortion is widely recognized as an essential medical service for women across the world. When access to that service is denied or restricted, women are compelled to carry unwanted pregnancies to term, seek backstreet abortionists, attempt self-induced abortions, or even travel to less restrictive states, provinces, and countries to receive care. Abortion across Borders focuses on travel across domestic and international boundaries to terminate a pregnancy. Christabelle Sethna and Gayle Davis have gathered a cadre of authors to examine how restrictive policies force women to move both within and across national borders in order to reach abortion providers, often at great expense, over long distances and with significant safety risks. Taking historical and contemporary perspectives, contributors examine the situation in regions that include Texas, Prince Edward Island, Ireland, Australia, the United Kingdom, and Eastern Europe. Throughout, they take a feminist intersectional approach to transnational travel and access to abortion services that is sensitive to inequalities of gender, race, and class in reproductive health care. This multidisciplinary volume raises challenging logistical, legal, and ethical questions while exploring the gendered aspects of medical tourism. A noticeable rollback of reproductive rights and renewed attention to border security in many parts of the world will make Abortion across Borders of timely interest to scholars of gender and women's studies, health, medicine, law, mobility studies, and reproductive justice. Contributors: Barbara Baird, Niklas Barke, Anna Bogic, Hayley Brown, Lori A. Brown, Cathrine Chambers, Ewelina Ciaputa, Gayle Davis, Mary Gilmartin, Agata Ignaciuk, Sinead Kennedy, Lena Lennerhed, Jo-Ann MacDonald, Colleen MacQuarrie, Jane O'Neill, Clare Parker, Christabelle Sethna, Sally Sheldon

Sounds of Belonging - U.S. Spanish-language Radio and Public Advocacy (Paperback): Dolores Ines Casillas Sounds of Belonging - U.S. Spanish-language Radio and Public Advocacy (Paperback)
Dolores Ines Casillas
R481 R414 Discovery Miles 4 140 Save R67 (14%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The last two decades have produced continued Latino population growth, and marked shifts in both communications and immigration policy. Since the 1990s, Spanish- language radio has dethroned English-language radio stations in major cities across the United States, taking over the number one spot in Los Angeles, Houston, Miami, and New York City. Investigating the cultural and political history of U.S. Spanish-language broadcasts throughout the twentieth century, Sounds of Belonging reveals how these changes have helped Spanish-language radio secure its dominance in the major U.S. radio markets. Bringing together theories on the immigration experience with sound and radio studies, Dolores Ines Casillas documents how Latinos form listening relationships with Spanish-language radio programming. Using a vast array of sources, from print culture and industry journals to sound archives of radio programming, she reflects on institutional growth, the evolution of programming genres, and reception by the radio industry and listeners to map the trajectory of Spanish-language radio, from its grassroots origins to the current corporate-sponsored business it has become. Casillas focuses on Latinos' use of Spanish-language radio to help navigate their immigrant experiences with U.S. institutions, for example in broadcasting discussions about immigration policies while providing anonymity for a legally vulnerable listenership. Sounds of Belonging proposes that debates of citizenship are not always formal personal appeals but a collective experience heard loudly through broadcast radio.
