2013 was the 50th anniversary of the House of Lords' landmark decision in Hedley Byrne v Heller. This international collection of essays brings together leading experts from five of the most important jurisdictions in which the case has been received (the United Kingdom, the United States, New Zealand, Canada and Australia) to reappraise its implications from a number of complementary perspectives-historical, theoretical, conceptual, doctrinal and comparative. It explores modern developments in the law of misstatement in each of the jurisdictions; examines the case's profound effects on the conceptual apparatus of the law of negligence more generally; explores the intersections between misstatement liabilities in contract, tort, equity and under statutory consumer protection provisions; and critically assesses the ways in which advisor liabilities have come to be limited and distributed under systems of 'joint and several' and 'proportionate' liability respectively. Inspired by Hedley Byrne, the purpose of the collection is to reflect on the case's echoes, effects and analogues throughout the private law and to provide a platform for thinking about the ways in which liabilities for misstatement and pure economic loss should be modelled in the modern day.

This book is a study of doctrinal and methodological divergence in the common law of obligations. It explores particular departures from the common law mainstream and the causes and effects of those departures. Some divergences can be justified on the basis of a need to adapt the common law of contract, torts, equity and restitution to local circumstances, or to bring them into conformity with local values. More commonly, however, doctrinal or methodological divergence simply reflects different approaches to common problems, or different views as to what justice or policy requires in particular circumstances. In some instances divergent methodologies lead to substantially the same results, while in others particular causes of action, defences, immunities or remedies recognised in one jurisdiction but not another undoubtedly produce different outcomes. Such cases raise interesting questions as to whether ultimate appellate courts should be slow to abandon principles that remain well accepted throughout the common law world, or cautious about taking a uniquely divergent path. The chapters in this book were originally presented at the Seventh Biennial Conference on the Law of Obligations held in Hong Kong in July 2014. A separate collection, entitled The Common Law of Obligations: Divergence and Unity (ISBN: 9781782256564), is also being published.

This book brings together a wide range of contributors from across the common law world to identify and debate the principal moral and systemic challenges facing private law in the remaining part of the twenty-first century. The various contributions identify serious problems relating to complexity and overload, threats to research and education, the law's unintelligibility, the unsatisfactory nature of the law reform process and a general lack of public engagement. They consider the respective future roles of statutes, codes, and judge-made law (in the form of both common law and equitable rules). They consider how best to organise the private law system internally, and how to co-ordinate it externally with other public and economic systems (human rights, regulation, insurance markets and social security frameworks). They address the challenges for private law presented by new forms of technology, and by modern demands for the protection of new and intangible forms of moral interest, such as interests in privacy, 'vindication' and 'personal choice'. They also engage with the critical contemporary debates about access to, and the privatisation of, civil justice. The work is designed as a source of inspiration and reference for private lawyers, as well as legislators, policy-makers and students.

Das Jahrbuch Soziale Interaktion bietet dem Forschungs- und Denkstil des Symbolischen Interaktionismus im deutschen Sprachraum eine Plattform. Seit den 1970er Jahren liegen die entsprechenden Referenztexte von George Herbert Mead, Herbert Blumer, Erving Goffman oder Anselm Strauss in Übersetzung vor. Auch sind in den letzten fünfzig Jahren eine Reihe von davon angeleiteten Untersuchungen entstanden, aber vom Entstehen einer Forschungslandschaft kann in der deutschsprachigen Soziologie keine Rede sein. Hierzu will diese Publikation ihre Dienste leisten.

"Nach der Gesellschaft der Individuen die Gesellschaft der Organisationen, nach der Gesellschaft der Organisationen die Gesellschaft der Netzwerke " So beschreibt Karl-Heinz Ladeur die Selbsttransformation der Gesellschaft in den westlichen Landern der letzten hundertfunfzig Jahre. Der Untergang eines von monarchischer Reprasentationskraft bestimmten Staates fuhrte auch im Recht zu einer starkeren Offnung fur eine Welt aus Relationen. Vertikale Begrundungsverhaltnisse werden durch horizontale Beziehungen ersetzt, an denen zunachst Organisationen und Gruppen und heute mehr und mehr sich fortlaufend verandernde Netzwerke beteiligt sind. Auf diese gesellschaftliche Situation muss sich das Recht neu einstellen. Es muss dazu die veranderte Rolle der Ungewissheit verarbeiten, die nicht langer im Sinne klassischer Rationalitatsvorstellungen durch die Gewinnung eines festen Grundes weitgehend beseitigt werden kann. Gefordert ist die Anpassung an eine Netzwerklogik der relationalen Rationalitat, die in unterschiedlichen Feldern - Rechtstheorie, Rechtsmethodologie, Staatstheorie, Verfassungstheorie, Verwaltungsrecht usw. - zu operationalisieren ist.

Why do states enter "special relationships" instead of taking up "normal relations"? To what extent do autocratic and democratic regimes build different forms of special relationships along different pathways? Examining a variety of theoretical and methodologogical approaches approaches, this book explores the gestation, evolution and effects of special interstate relations. The contributions suggest that special relationships between the same regime type are neither all evil or all vituous. Furthermore, they argue that their structuration effect on international relations is better understand when the interaction between regime type and the international society is accounted for.
