Edited by Alexander N. Chumakov, Ivan I. Mazour and William C. Gay

This book provides brief expositions of the central concepts in the field of Global Studies. Former President of the Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev says, “The book is intelligent, rich in content and, I believe, necessary in our complex, turbulent, and fragile world.” 300 authors from 50 countries contributed 450 entries. The contributors include scholars, researchers, and professionals in social, natural, and technological sciences. They cover globalization problems within ecology, business, economics, politics, culture, and law. This interdisciplinary collection provides a basis for understanding the concepts and methods within global studies and for accessing lengthier and more technical research in the field. The articles treat such important topics as the biosphere, ozone depletion, land resources and pollution, world health challenges, education, global modeling, sustainable development, war, weapons of mass destruction, and terrorism. The book also promotes academic cooperation, political dialogue, and mutual understanding across diverse traditions and national identities that are needed to engage successfully the many daunting challenges of globalization.

Edited by K. Zweigert and Ulrich Drobnig

This massive work represents the labour of hundreds of lawyers and scholars throughout the world. It is undoubtedly the most extensive and thorough examination of comparative law on the international level ever published. It incorporates not only detailed descriptions of the legal systems of more than 150 countries but, above all, thoroughly documented comparative analyses of the main issues in civil and commercial law and related issues world-wide. Consisting of 17 volumes in total, each volume is divided into 6-20 chapters written by relevant specialists. Rather than delaying publication until the volume is complete, every chapter is published on completion in paperback form. Once a year several of these chapters, not necessarily of the same volume, are sent to subscribers in single instalment. As soon as all the chapters in a given volume are ready, they are indexed, updated where necessary and sent to subscribers in high-quality hardback form. For an up-to-date list of published instalments, their contents, and prices, please contact brill@turpin-distribution.com
