Shortlisted for the 2015 Walter Scott Prize 'Surely his masterpiece... Intelligent, terrifying and comic... Amis has tackled the biggest questions with imagination and intelligence, and the ultimate strength of this masterly novel is that he knows, and shows, that although there is no answer to the questions Auschwitz poses, we must never stop asking them. Read it, ponder it – revel in it indeed – then read it again.' Allan Massie, Scotsman There was an old story about a king who asked his favourite wizard to create a magic mirror. This mirror didn’t show you your reflection. Instead, it showed you your soul – it showed you who you really were. But the king couldn’t look into the mirror without turning away, and nor could his courtiers. No one could. What happens when we discover who we really are? And how do we come to terms with it? Fearless and original, The Zone of Interest is a violently dark love story set against a backdrop of unadulterated evil, and a vivid journey into the depths and contradictions of the human soul.

With this new edition, Administrative Law, Cases and Materials, continues to present the complex substance of administrative law in a format that is both intellectually satisfying and easily understandable. Prior to publication the book was used at the University of Minnesota where the students found administrative law to be both an exciting and rewarding endeavor. In addition to carefully examining current law, students will become familiar with the relevant historical perspectives so necessary to appreciate the dynamics of today's law. They will become familiar with the so-called progressive movement and its regulatory offspring, the independent agency, with the New Deal regulatory agenda, with the post-World War II consensus embodying the Administrative Procedure Act, with the problem of capture, with aggressive modes of judicial review in response, with the problem ossification of rule-making, and with an array of judicial reinterpretations of settled precedents. This focus on doctrinal coherence and historical background provides a rich intellectual experience. This new Second Edition also: • Includes new cases through 2010 Term of the Supreme Court, including Free Enterprise Fund v. Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, the latest separation-of-powers decision by the U.S. Supreme Court, and last year's FCC v. Fox Telev. Stations, Inc., gloss on hard-look judicial review. • Focuses upon the relationships among various administrative law doctrines, such as the relation between the substantial-evidence and arbitrary-and-capricious review standards and the relations between those review standards and the Chevron/Skidmore deference standards and; • Examines split-enforcement agencies such as OSHA establishes as well as analogous structures in the benefit agencies in addition to omnipresent unitary regulatory agency.

The third edition of this highly respected textbook introduces students of public administration to the practical issues of administrative law. While useful to law school students, it is most relevant to public management students. The presentation provides a concise foundation to the history and theory of administrative law, rule making, and judicial decisions. The most important issues in administrative law are included--meaningful issues for present and future administrators. A larger number of recent cases and other up-to-date information will be found in the book in order to make the student aware of the kinds of legal problems likely to be encountered in public agencies. One or two cases illustrate each problem at hand, rather than discussing numerous arcane court decisions and technicalities of legal procedure, in order to sketch the broad contours of the present law.

All rock masses contain bedding planes, fissures, fractures, joints and other mechanical defects which are here referred to as discontinuities. The requirement to provide numerical data on discontinuities for engineering design calculations has created the need to apply the mathematical methods of probability theory, statistics, vector analysis and mechanics to a topic that has previously been handled in a largely qualitative way.

Should Trees Have Standing

Originally published in 1972, Should Trees Have Standing? was a rallying point for the then burgeoning environmental movement, launching a worldwide debate on the basic nature of legal rights that reached the U.S. Supreme Court. Now, in the 35th anniversary edition of this remarkably influential book, Christopher D. Stone updates his original thesis and explores the impact his ideas have had on the courts, the academy, and society as a whole. At the heart of the book is an eminently sensible, legally sound, and compelling argument that the environment should be granted legal rights. For the new edition, Stone explores a variety of recent cases and current events--and related topics such as climate change and protecting the oceans--providing a thoughtful survey of the past and an insightful glimpse at the future of the environmental movement. This enduring work continues to serve as the definitive statement as to why trees, oceans, animals, and the environment as a whole should be bestowed with legal rights, so that the voiceless elements in nature are protected for future generations.
