The Law of Sea: Progress and Prospects - Freestone David

Oxford University Press / —
— Includes contributions from leading authorities on the law of the sea, both academic and practitioner
— Critically reviews the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea and the range of developments which have occurred since its inception
— Examines the tension between regional global regimes for oceans governance and the structural regulation of the UN 1982 Convention
— Examines the adaptability of the UN 1982 Convention and its ability to cope with unforeseen contemporary issues of oceans use
It is now more than ten years since the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (LOSC) came into force and more than twenty years since it was concluded in December of 1982 after more than nine years of negotiations. The famous nullpackage dealnull that it represented addressed many of the problematic issues that previous conventions had been unable to settle. This collection of essays, by leading academics and practitioners, provides a critical review of the LOSC and its relationship to and interface with the wide range of developments which have occurred since 1982.
The individual chapters reveal a number of core themes, including the need to maintain the integrity of the LOSC and its centrality to oceans regulation; the tension between regional global regimes for oceans governance and the struggle to reconcile these within the LOSC; the gradual consolidation of authority over oceans space; the difficulty of adapting some of the more dated provisions of the LOSC to deal with unforeseen contemporary issues of oceans use; and the consequent development of the general obligations of the LOSC through binding and non-binding agreements. They clearly indicate the potential impact and role of post-LOSC agreements and institutions in developing the law of the sea and resolving some of the outstanding substantive issues. From this it is clear that the future of the Law of the Sea will involve an understanding of the wider legal environment within which it operates.

Caron David D. — The UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules: A Commentary, 2006 год

Август 11th, 2012 / Автор статьи: admin
The UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules: A Commentary - Caron David D.

Oxford University Press / —
— A key text for the arbitration community, both private and governmental, corporate counsel, to NAFTA (and CAFTA), and BIT/World Bank investment arbitration worlds
— The analysis is organized by rule number and stage of proceedings, and reproduces extracts of actual judgements and caselaw from a wide range of tribunals including ICSID, and NAFTA chapter 11 arbitrations
— The authors have all served with the staff of the Iran -United States Claims Tribunal, and served as arbitrators, counsel, and judges with institutions such as ICSID, the European Court of Human Rights, and the United Nations
Reaching past the secrecy so often met in arbitration, this study explains clearly and fully the workings of the UNCITRAL Rules of Arbitral Procedure recommended for use in 1976 by the United Nations. Pulling together difficult to obtain sources from the Iran -United States Claims Tribunal, arbitrations under Chapter 11 of the North American Free Trade Agreement, and ad hoc arbitrations the Authors illuminate the shape the bare bones UNCITRAL Rules take in practice. The authors cogently critique that practice in the light of the negotiating history of the rules and solutions adopted by the other major private rules of arbitral procedure. To aid the specialist in the field, the practice of these various tribunals is also faithfully extracted and reproduced so that it may be argued in yet unforeseen procedural contexts. Rich both in its analysis and sources, this text is indispensable for the international arbitration field.
The Authors have all served with the staff of the Iran -United States Claims Tribunal and served as arbitrators, counsel and judges with institutions ranging from the World Bank’s International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes, to the European Court of Human Rights, and the United Nations.

John Ayto — Oxford Dictionary Of Slang, 2003 год

Август 10th, 2012 / Автор статьи: admin
Oxford Dictionary Of Slang - John Ayto

Oxford University Press / —
— Thematically arranged by chapter for easy browsing
— Words are arranged chronologically within themes to show how the language has changed
— Contains word origins, illustrative examples from literature, and an easy-to-use A-Z index
— Includes over 10,000 slang words and phrases
— By the author of the Oxford Dictionary of Modern Slang and the Oxford Dictionary of Rhyming Slang
Our longstanding love affair with the undignified bits of our language — the unguarded vocabulary of conversation, the quirky slang of in-groups, the colourful outbursts of lexis in extremis — has assured us a continuing tradition of collecting such words together in dictionaries. Rather than using the alphabetical format favoured by most of these, however, the Oxford Dictionary of Slang takes in turn each area of life and each aspect of the world that generates significant amounts of slang, and builds up a picture of how our off-guard speech has changed down the years. There is also a full alphabetical index.
Containing over 10,000 words and phrases, this is the ideal reference for those interested in the more quirky and unofficial words used in the English language. Including surprisingly old words such as booze and guzzle to the most up-to-date words like humongous and lunchbox, this fascinating book is sure to provide a stonking good read for all.
