In each of the first three editions of the bestselling Law 101, Jay Feinman gave readers an upbeat and vivid examination of the American legal system. Since the third edition was published in 2010, much has happened: several key Supreme Court cases have been decided, we've seen sensational criminal trials, and the legal system has had to account for the latest developments in Internet law. This fully updated fourth edition of Law 101 accounts for all this and more, as Feinman once again provides a clear introduction to American law. The book covers all the main subjects taught in the first year of law school, and discusses every facet of the American legal tradition, including constitutional law, the litigation process, and criminal, property, and contracts law. To accomplish this, Feinman brings in the most noteworthy, infamous, and often outrageous examples and cases. We learn about the case involving scalding coffee that cost McDonald's half a million dollars, the murder trial in Victorian London that gave us the legal definition of insanity, and the epochal decision of Marbury vs. Madison that gave the Supreme Court the power to declare state and federal law unconstitutional. A key to learning about the law is learning legal vocabulary, and Feinman helps by clarifying terms like "due process" and "equal protection," as well as by drawing distinctions between terms like "murder" and "manslaughter." Above all, though, is that Feinman reveals to readers of all kinds that despite its complexities and quirks, the law is can be understood by everyone. Perfect for students contemplating law school, journalists covering legislature, or even casual fans of "court-television" shows, Law 101 is a clear and accessible introduction to the American legal system. New to this edition: Featured analysis of: -the Obamacare case -Citizens United -the DOMA decision -the Trayvon Martin case As well as recent legal developments pertaining to: -online contracting -mortgages -police investigations -criminal sentencing

In kaum einem Bereich spuken so viele Irrtümer herum wie in der Ökonomie. Zudem sind sie so weit verbreitet, dass sie als gültige Lehrmeinung angesehen werden. Themen wie staatliche Zinsmanipulation, Sparen, Inflation, Mindestlöhne oder Branchenrettung, wie die der Banken, sind aktueller und missverstandener denn je. Deshalb ist es wichtig zu wissen, was wirklich hinter den Begriffen steckt, wie sie zusammenwirken und welche praktischen Folgen (staatliche) Eingriffe haben. Niemand könnte ein Verständnis wirtschaftlicher Grundlagen besser vermitteln als Henry Hazlitt. Als einer der ganz Großen der Österreichischen Schule wird er in einem Atemzug mit Mises, Hayek und Rothbard genannt. Seine Begabung für elegante, populäre Darstellungen wirtschaftlicher Zusammenhänge haben dieses Buch entstehen lassen. In 24 kurzweiligen Kapiteln vermittelt er sein umfassendes Wissen, von Steuern über die Idee der Vollbeschäftigung bis zu Preisen und Inflation. Die 24 wichtigsten Regeln der Wirtschaft, ein Klassiker der Ökonomie jetzt auf Deutsch und heute noch so aktuell wie zur Erstveröffentlichung 1946.

Die spirituelle Dimension des Wünschens. Wayne Dyer gehört seit 35 Jahren zu den bekanntesten spirituellen Autoren. In seinem neuesten Buch greift er das populäre Thema Wünschen und Manifestieren auf und bringt es in Zusammenhang mit der Suche nach unserem wahren Selbst. Wünsche werden selten wahr, wenn sie aus dem Ego kommen. sie werden Realität, wenn sie in Übereinstimmung mit dem höchsten Selbst erfolgen. Das Ego sitzt im Gefängnis falscher »ich bin«-Sätze wie »ich bin schüchtern« oder »ich bin ungeschickt im Umgang mit Geld«. Unser innerstes Wesen jedoch kennt keine Grenzen. Es ist potenziell unendlich, göttlich. Wir müssen deshalb all das hinter uns lassen, was uns begrenzt, und uns mit unserem höheren Selbst verbinden. Dann können wir erkennen, was unsere Seele braucht und wir werden Mitschöpfer unserer Realität. Wayne Dyer zeigt in fünf praktischen Schritten, wie wir die Wünsche unseres höheren Selbst erkennen und auf diesen aufbauend unser Leben neu gestalten. so können wir unseren Körper heilen, unseren Geist beruhigen und unsere Seele glücklich machen.

Libraries of all types have undergone significant developments in the last few decades. The rate of change in the academic library, a presence for decades now, has been increasing in the first decade of this century. It is no exaggeration to claim that it is undergoing a top to bottom redefinition. In this second volume of the series, Creating the 21st-Century Academic Library, we explore the initiatives in student learning and training that are underway in our academic libraries. The 13 chapters range from librarians redesigning the space in the library in order to assume control of the campus bookstore to implementing a MOOC where the problems of providing material to potentially thousands of students taking an online course must somehow overcome copyright restrictions. A chapter describes how the iPad has become the chosen delivery mechanism for a rich array of resources that finally begin to reflect the educational potential of the digital world. Another chapter tells how a collaboration creates an audio archive to enrich the experiences of patrons and raise the visibility of the special collections unit on campus. Gamification plays a role in two chapters and active learning is featured in another that employs the technologies of interactive whiteboards, clickers, and wireless slates. These approaches, employing new technologies and terminology, signal that we have begun a new era in the definition and design of the academic library. We can’t expect the redefined academic library to assume its final shape any time soon, if ever, but the transformation is well underway.
