Sam Obeysekere is a Ceylonese lawyer, a perfect product of empire. His family, which once had wealth and influence, starts to crack open as political change comes to the island, and Sam's glamorous father dies leaving gambling debts.

Many business disputes are now resolved by settlement negotiations, notably by resort to mediation. Besides, English courts are keen to encourage resort to alternative forms of civil justice, notably mediation. There has also been a resurgence of interest in commercial arbitration. This is part of a modern trend in many Western legal systems to reduce the problem of excessive and expensive resort to court proceedings. Neil Andrews examines the English system of civil justice succinctly and comprehensively, embracing not only court proceedings but mediation and arbitration. Lawyers throughout Europe and in the wider world will gain practical insight into a major jurisdiction's modern, dynamic, and flexible system of civil justice.

In a globalizing, knowledge-based economy, innovation and creative capacity lead to economic prosperity. Starting in 2006, the Innovation Systems Research Network began a six year-long study on how city-regions in Canada were surviving and thriving in a globalized world. That study resulted in the “Innovation, Creativity, and Governance in Canadian City-Regions” series, which examines the impact of innovation, talent, and institutions on sixteen city-regions across Canada. This volume explores how the social dynamics that influence innovation and knowledge flows in Canadian city-regions contribute to transformation and long-term growth. With case studies examining cities of all sizes, from Toronto to Moncton, Innovating in Urban Economies analyzes the impact of size, location, and the regional economy on innovation and knowledge in Canada’s cities.

This inspiring book, Lawyers, Guns, and Money by Carol X. Vinzant, recounts the heroic efforts of Tom McDermott, a lawyer and victim of the infamous Colin Ferguson rampage on the Long Island Railroad, to take on the gun industry. He is among the leaders of an innovative and promising strategy to circumvent the NRA's political power and courts constrained by interpretations of the Second Amendment. Through civil action he hits the gun companies where it hurts most: the bottom line. Making insurance difficult for manufacturers to get, he has helped reduce the number of cheap hand guns, "Saturday Night Specials," often used in crime. This is a riveting account of tragedy turned into action, and how the law can be used to defend victims rather than enrich corporations.

The book describes Fluid Dynamics, Magnetohydrodynamics, and Classical Thermodynamics as branches of Lagrange’s Analytical Mechanics. The approach presented is markedly different from the treatment given to them in traditional text books. A Hamilton-Type Variational Principle as the proper mathematical technique for the theoretical description of the dynamic state of any fluid is formulated. The scheme is completed proposing a new group of variations regarding the evolution parameter.
