This discerning book examines the challenges, opportunities and solutions for courts adjudicating on environmental cases. It offers a critical analysis of the practice and judgments of courts from various representative and influential jurisdictions. Through the analysis and comparison of court practices and case law across global domestic courts as varied as the National Green Tribunal in India, the Land and Environment Court in Australia, and the District Court of The Hague in the Netherlands, the expert contributors bring together a wealth of knowledge in order to enhance mutual learning and understanding towards an environmental rule of law. In doing so, they illustrate that courts play a vital role in the formation and crystallization of rulings and decisions to protect and conserve the environment. Ultimately, they prove that there are many lessons to be learnt from other legal systems in seeking to maintain and enhance the environmental rule of law. Contemporary and global in scope, Courts and the Environment is essential reading for scholars and students of environmental law, as well as judges, legal practitioners and policymakers interested in understanding the legal challenges to and the legal basis for protecting environmental values in courts.

But the pair travel via the formidable Fairy Queen's realm, where Sakti simply disappears. To save her sister, Muna must learn to navigate Regency London's high society and trick the English into believing she's a magical prodigy. But when the Sorceress Royal's friends become accidentally embroiled in a plot - involving the Fairy Queen's contentious succession - Muna is drawn right in. She must also find Sakti, break their curse and somehow stay out of trouble. But if fairyland's true queen does finally return, trouble may find her first . . .

Numerous advances in our understanding of the pathology and molecular features of liver tumors have been made since the publication of the previous series, nearly two decades ago. Examples of recent advances include the identification of novel entities, including their precursor lesions, the discovery of key molecular changes, including the fusion transcript between the DNAJB1 gene and the PRKACA gene in fibrolamellar carcinoma, the use of glutamine synthetase in the diagnosis of focal nodular hyperplasia, and the subtyping of hepatocellular adenomas using molecular and immunohistochemical methods. Together with the more unified classification and terminology of intrahepatic bile duct tumors and their precursors, these advances call for updated information that is presented in this volume.

This standalone adventure is set in the same world as Zen Cho's award-winning novel - The Sorcerer to the Crown.
Winter is roughly two months out. The time limit has been set.But the Empire's military leaders are fiercely divided on what to do. Should they conduct aggressive offensives in hopes of a break through, or should they weather the winter and use that as a chance to reorganize, restructuring the lines of battle? In the end, they decided that while they gather supplies for a theoretical offensive, they would conduct an investigation to collect intelligence. Naturally, Tanya's Salamander Unit was the first candidate for the mission. Should they push ahead, or should they hold their ground? There's no time to hesitate. As the hellish conditions worsen, the war shows no sign of slowing down or becoming any less brutal. Everyone has no choice but keep what they hold dear close to their hearts as they march ever onwards toward the battlefield. Everything for the sake of the motherland, for the fatherland.
