This is an innovative study of middle-class behaviour and property relations in English towns in Georgian and Victorian Britain. Through the lens of wills, family papers, property deeds, account books and letters, the author offers a reading of the ways in which middle-class families survived and surmounted the economic difficulties of early industrial society. He argues that these were essentially 'networked' families created and affirmed by a 'gift' network of material goods, finance, services and support, with property very much at the centre of middle-class survival strategies. His approach combines microhistorical studies of individual families with a broader analysis of the national and even international networks within which these families operated. The result is a significant contribution to the history, and to debates about the place of structural and cultural analysis in historical understanding.

Property: Cases and Materials features sweeping coverage in a single volume, from "old property" (such as the basics of real estate law) to "new property" including the latest developments in intellectual property law. The text provokes debate on fundamental questions such as the creation of property, information as property, collective v. individual rights, and property as related to other bodies of law. Its coverage of intellectual property shows how the law grows and responds to social and technological change. Designed for flexibility, stand-alone chapters can be omitted if time constraints require. Property: Cases and Materials includes appellate decisions, statutes, regulations, administrative decisions, law review articles, and non-legal materials as well as principal cases--Elvis Presley International Memorial Foundation v. Crowell; Panavision International, L.P. v. Toeppen; Dred Scott v. Sandford; and Popov v. Hayashi on the dispute over the Barry Bonds home run ball.

Intellectual Property And Human Rights

`Gathering together essays by leading commentators, Professor Willem Grosheide's timely book offers an excellent overview of the many significant questions of social and legal policy that emerge at interface between intellectual property and human rights. The relationship between intellectual property and human rights is, or should be, central to the thinking of everyone concerned with some of the most profound problems with which individual nations and the international community must now contend - including scientific, technological, and cultural development, public health, access to culture, education, freedom of expression, rights of indigenous peoples and the rights of creative workers. Providing a range of views on the human rights implications of intellectual property law and policy, this collection makes a valuable contribution to current debates on these critically important issues.' ---Graeme Austin, University of Arizona, USA

In the modern era where the rise of the knowledge economy is accompanied, if not facilitated, by an ever-expanding use of intellectual property rights, this timely book provides a much needed explanation to the relationship between intellectual property law and human rights law.

The contributors promote the view that this relationship should be central to the analysis of many of the profound problems that nation states and the international community encounter today, be they scientific, technological or cultural. The book is divided into sections covering the law and its trends, IP rights as human rights and human rights as restrictions to IP rights.

This stimulating book will appeal to academics, postgraduate students, national and international public authorities and those involved with international organizations in the fields of intellectual property law and human rights law.


International Economic Law With A Human Face

RRP $900.99

International Economic Law with a Human Face addresses a vital question in contemporary international economies: the design, structure and content of the legal and institutional framework within an increasingly globalized civil society and market economy. It is based on the belief that liberalized global markets cannot be expected to provide the public goods required to secure the acquis communautaire for human rights worldwide, let alone to extend those rights to peoples hitherto deprived of their benefits. Scholars from Europe, America, Asia and Australia examine a variety of aspects of relevant state practice in a fresh and stimulating manner. They combine 'international social critique' of state practice with ideas for 'social engineering', offering critical legal analysis and ideas about policy options for setting standards to induce legal change and development. International Economic Law with a Human Face is a 'user-friendly' book. Twenty-seven chapters are sub-titled and arranged under three main headings: Towards a new human and economic order (chapters 1-8); Trade, environmental protection and resource management (chapters 9-18); and Investment and finance (chapters 19-27). It also contains a detailed Table of Contents and an Index.
