Engaging With Foreign Law

Engaging With Foreign Law
Publisher: Hart Publishing | pages: 452 | 2009 | ISBN: 1841139475 | PDF | 12,2 mb

This book presents a developed theory of how national lawyers can approach, understand, and make use of foreign law. Its theme is pursued through a set of detailed essays which look at the courts as well as business practice and, with the help of statistics, demonstrate what type of academic work has any impact on the 'real' world. Engaging with Foreign Law thus aims to carve out a new niche for comparative law in this era of globalisation, and may also be the only book which deals in some depth with both private and public law in countries such as England, Germany, France, South Africa, and the United States.

Consumer-Citizens of China: The Role of Foreign Brands in the Imagined Future China by Kelly Tian
English | June 9, 2013 | ISBN: 0415854628 | 168 Pages | PDF | 3 MB

This book presents a comprehensive examination of Chinese consumer behaviour and challenges the previously dichotomous interpretation of the consumption of Western and non-Western brands in China. The dominant position is that Chinese consumers are driven by a desire to imitate the lifestyles of Westerners and thereby advance their social standing locally. The alternative is that consumers reject Western brands as a symbolic gesture of loyalty to their nation-state.
