Ein höllisch schönes Geschenk! Hämischer, sarkastischer und politisch unkorrekter als Ambrose Bierce hat wohl kaum jemand die Welt beschrieben. In gewitzten Stichworten von A wie «Abendland» bis Z wie «Zyniker» erklärt er den Lauf der Dinge, gesehen durch die Brille eines abgebrühten Pessimisten. In dieser Schmuckausgabe mit schwarzem Samtbezug und roter Folienprägung lauern viele Stunden teuflisch guter Unterhaltung! Bei der Zusammenstellung seiner Misanthropismen ließ «Bitter Bierce» die reine Willkür walten. So folgt auch in der Übersetzung auf die «Braut» das «Brechmittel», auf «Betragen» das Wort «betrügen» und auf den «Erzbischof» der «Esel». Bierce’ Spott gilt sozialen, politischen und charakterlichen Missständen, seine Geißel trifft Machthaber und Autoritäten jeden erdenklichen Kalibers. Mit weit über 1000 Stichworten präsentiert die vorliegende Ausgabe diesen Klassiker der satirischen Literatur so umfangreich wie nie zuvor in deutscher Sprache.

Each year, thousands of lawsuits are filed in federal and state courts seeking recovery from manufacturers of pharmaceuticals and medical devices. These lawsuits include individual actions, actions consolidated into multidistrict litigation, and class actions. The litigation occasionally becomes life-threatening for the defendant corporations, and may breed a public relations nightmare, as occurred with Vioxx, breast implants, and fen-phen. Drug and Device Product Liability Litigation Strategy, by Mark Herrmann and David B. Alden, offers assistance to lawyers who practice in this high-stakes, high-profile, and rapidly-evolving area. The book's primary focus is to provide useful practice pointers and overall strategic guidance for attorneys in product liability litigation involving prescription drugs and medical devices. It will serve as an indispensable guide to handling such a case from pre-litigation through trial. The legal landscape in this important area is expected to shift as the Supreme Court's decisions in Riegel v. Medtronic, Inc. and Wyeth v. Levine are applied, and as the President and Congress address tort reform and other health care issues. Practitioners will need thoughtful, expert advice to navigate these changes.
