Edited By Cremades,Bernardo M.
This text contains the papers presented at the 1998 Vancouver IBA Conference. The leading experts in international commercial arbitration presented their point of view from their respective countries on the situation of arbitration in Latin America. They reached the conclusion that international commercial arbitration in Latin American countries is in a state of good health, after analyzing: the general ratification of the international arbitration regulatory conventions; the legislative amendments enacted in the different parliaments; and the judicial activity in Latin American countries, in which case law, with its inevitable surprises, follows the lines of the best case law in countries familiar with arbitration. Many ad hoc arbitrations are being held, but, above all, the statistics from the arbitration administrative institutions demonstrate the importance of arbitration in Latin America. The usage of bi- or multilateral treaties of international public law to protect investments, as a basis for setting up the arbitral proceedings for international private law, confirms the prosperity of arbitral proceedings in Latin America.120pp.

This yearbook, now in its 11th volume, is a primary source of information on significant and topical legal issues relating to the Palestinian territories. It provides, in a single annual volume, not only leading articles on topics of major interest to the international legal community, but also key legislation, court decisions, legal cases, treaties, resolutions, special reports, and other relevant legal material translated from the original Arabic or Hebrew into English. This particular volume is devoted specifically to the question of Palestinian refugees and includes: a comparison of the international legal framework designed to protect refugees with the framework already established for the protection of Palestinian refugees; an examination of the various pieces of legislation enacted to "legally" confiscate Palestinian lands; raising the question as to how the plight of Palestinian refugees may be addressed in the international legal system; legal precedents regarding refugees, including the Dayton accord and UN Resolutions; various agreements signed over the course of the past year; a detailed bibliography of books, monographs and articles; and a comprehensive index. This volume, as with its predecessors, should prove an invaluable source of reference and record on the complex legal issues relating to the Palestinian territories, and will be of prime interest to legal practitioners, researchers, scholars and anyone involved in law, politics, human rights or international relations who has an interest in this region.448pp.

The vast expansion of international trade has greatly increased the incidence of cross-border ownership of assets, both tangible and intangible. It is not uncommon, for instance, for a business to own both physical plant and intellectual property in two or more jurisdictions. Under these circumstances, it is vital for business persons and their counsel to have some knowledge of a variety of relevant domestic legal regimes, particularly in regard to available remedies. This text provides the essential details of such knowledge for 14 important commercial jurisdictions: Argentina, Belgium, Bermuda, Canada, Germany, India, Japan, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, England and Wales (United Kingdom), and the US. Each country survey is presented by an experienced business law practitioner in his or her particular jurisdiction. Each chapter's coverage includes discussion of remedies under such security interests as: real estate; fixtures; movables; patents; trademarks; and industrial models and designs. Each author also explains important procedural aspects of many typical phases of ownership, including registration, transfer, sale of an ongoing concern or stock in trade, taxation, trusteeship, and injunction orders. Remedies under private international law are also considered. 280pp.

Campbell, Nedra
An essential guide to making "the system" work in the reader's favour, this book will arm African American employees, family members, consumers, tenants, business owners, civil plaintiffs, voters, criminal suspects, prisoners, and victims with legal information that will empower them to demand that those in power respect and honour their rights, no matter how difficult their situation. The American legal system was created by white men for white men, and therefore it often fails to reflect and protect the values and interests of black men and women. But over a century after slavery and decades after Jim Crow, African Americans can now use this imperfect system to their advantage. The notion of having rights is flawed; citizens truly have only those rights they choose to exercise or claim, and this book will show them how to do so.

Edited By Horn,Norman and Norton,Joseph J.
This work provides a comprehensive analysis of the role of non-judicial dispute settlement in international financial transactions. Whereas arbitration and non-judicial dispute settlement mechanisms are of growing importance in international economic transactions, their present and future role in financial transactions is not yet fully explored. This publication aims to fill this gap in the literature and includes analyses of bank remedies, direct negotiation and mediation in financial and business conflicts, debt renegotiations, restructuring of syndicated loans, arbitration in project financing, and the roles of the ICC, NAFTA and OAS. Some of the expert papers focus in particular on the role of arbitration and dispute resolution in Latin America, Greater China and Russia. The text is based on the edited and revised papers of an international conference - part of a global series of conferences held in 1999 on the "New International Financial Architecture" - organized by the Law Centre of European and International Cooperation (R.I.Z., Cologne), the Centre for Commercial Law Studies (London), the Asian Institute of International Financial Law (Hong Kong), and the SMU Institute of International Banking and Finance (Dallas). 307pp.
