|Treatise On Zoology - Anatomy, Taxonomy, Biology - The Crustacea, Decapoda Volume 9 (3 Vols) : English by Frederick Schram : INR58240 ISBN: 9789004190900|
This volume, 9C, covers the Brachyura. With the publication of this ninth volume in the Treatise on Zoology: The Crustacea, we depart from the sequence one would normally expect. Some crustacean groups never had a French version produced, namely, the orders Stomatopoda, Euphausiacea, Amphionidacea, and Decapoda; the largest contingent of these involved Decapoda – a group of tremendous diversity and for which we have great depth of knowledge. The organization and production of these “new” chapters began independently from the other chapters and volumes. Originally envisioned by the editorial team to encompass volume 9 of the series, it quickly became evident that the depth of material for such a volume must involve the printing of separate fascicles. These new chapters are now nearing completion, and the decision was made to begin publication of volume 9 immediately rather than wait until after volumes 3 through 8 would appear.

|Democratic Citizenship And The Free Movement Of People : English by Willem Maas : INR12180 ISBN: 9789004243279|
Democratic states guarantee free movement within their territory to all citizens, as a core right of citizenship. Similarly, the European Union guarantees EU citizens and members of their families the right to live and the right to work anywhere within EU territory. Such rights reflect the project of equality and undifferentiated individual rights for all who have the status of citizen, but they are not uncontested. Despite citizenship's promise of equality, barriers, incentives, and disincentives to free movement make some citizens more equal than others.

|Les Méthodes Du Droit International Privé À L'épreuve Des Conflits De Cultures : French by Léna Gannagé : INR1750 ISBN: 9789004257504|
Cet ouvrage est consacré à l’étude des relations qui se nouent entre les systèmes européens et les systèmes de tradition musulmane dans le domaine sensible du droit de la famille. Ces relations mettent à l’épreuve la théorie générale du droit international privé qui, construite en contemplation d’ordres juridiques unis par une communauté de droit, se révèle inadaptée au traitement des différences culturelles. Au moins dans le domaine du statut personnel, cette théorie n’est pas reçue dans les systèmes de tradition musulmane et, au sein même des systèmes européens, elle peine à atteindre ses objectifs dans les relations avec les ordres juridiques relevant de cultures différentes. Prenant acte des transformations récentes qui affectent la discipline, tant sur le terrain des méthodes que sur celui des valeurs, l’étude invite à dépasser l’impasse actuelle par la promotion d’un pluralisme des méthodes de réglementation adapté aux conflits de cultures.
|Competence-competence In The Face Of Illegality In Contracts And Arbitration Agreements : English by Richard H. Kreindler : INR1750 ISBN: 9789004257542|
Competence-competence and corruption have, for different reasons, been mainstays of international dispute resolution thought and practice for the longest time. In the last few years, their intersection has become increasingly important and problematic. These lectures seek to define the problem and to provide acceptable solutions where possible. They attempt to derive support from both a stringent dogmatic approach and pragmatic attention to real-life expectations and conduct. More so than in other areas of private international law, the intersection between the powers of the arbitrator and the illegality of the subject matter or the parties’ conduct poses a particular challenge. That challenge is to postulate proper solutions under the law, including principles of transnational or international law, to conduct which can take on a multiplicity of appearances owing to conflicting cultural understandings of what is and is not legal in commercial life. The statement that bribery and corruption offend transnational or international public policy does not relieve the arbitrator from the burden of scrutinizing that statement doctrinally and exploring its consequences in a period of ever-increasing globalization of economic activity and investment.
