Book Summary:

Winner of the 2017 Shirley Jackson Award Named One of the Top 10 Thrillers to Read This Summer by Time Magazine. In this tense, gripping novel by a rising star of Korean literature, Oghi has woken from a coma after causing a devastating car accident that took his wife's life and left him paralyzed and badly disfigured. His caretaker is his mother-in-law, a widow grieving the loss of her only child. Oghi is neglected and left alone in his bed. His world shrinks to the room he lies in and his memories of his troubled relationship with his wife, a sensitive, intelligent woman who found all of her life goals thwarted except for one: cultivating the garden in front of their house. But soon Oghi notices his mother-in-law in the abandoned garden, uprooting what his wife had worked so hard to plant and obsessively digging larger and larger holes. When asked, she answers only that she is finishing what her daughter started. A bestseller in Korea, award-winning author Hye-young Pyun's The Hole is a superbly crafted and deeply unnerving novel about the horrors of isolation and neglect in all of its banal and brutal forms. As Oghi desperately searches for a way to escape, he discovers the difficult truth about his wife and the toll their life together took on her.

Book Summary:

Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this multi-million-copy New York Times bestseller is the definitive manual for anyone interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control – from the author of The Laws of Human Nature. In the book that People magazine proclaimed “beguiling” and “fascinating,” Robert Greene and Joost Elffers have distilled three thousand years of the history of power into 48 essential laws by drawing from the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, and Carl Von Clausewitz and also from the lives of figures ranging from Henry Kissinger to P.T. Barnum. Some laws teach the need for prudence (“Law 1: Never Outshine the Master”), others teach the value of confidence (“Law 28: Enter Action with Boldness”), and many recommend absolute self-preservation (“Law 15: Crush Your Enemy Totally”). Every law, though, has one thing in common: an interest in total domination. In a bold and arresting two-color package, The 48 Laws of Power is ideal whether your aim is conquest, self-defense, or simply to understand the rules of the game.

Book Summary:

The 1969 Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties makes no express reference to many of the most common canons and interpretative principles derived from international jurisprudence over many years. This volume represents the first modern, freestanding analysis of such canons and principles, their role in treaty interpretation and their relationship with the Vienna Convention regime. A top-flight roster of respected scholars and practitioners of public international law offers an in-depth examination of, among other things: • the origins of canons and interpretive principles; • their utility and limits in treaty interpretation; and • the application of numerous individual canons and interpretive principles, including effet utile, expressio unius, lex specialis, ejusdem generis, in dubio mitius, in pari materia, ex abundante cautela, the principles of contemporaneity and evolutive interpretation, and more. Extensive analysis of case law and scholarship provides insightful interpretive guidance across virtually every subfield of public international law. With its valuable insights into when the application of particular canons or principles of interpretation is most likely to be appropriate and persuasive, the volume will be of great value to lawyers representing parties (whether states, corporations or individuals) before international dispute resolution bodies, as well as to judges and arbitrators, legal officials at ministries of foreign affairs, and scholars of public international law.

Book Summary:

This collection of essays by Professor Michael N. Schmitt of Durham University draws together those of his articles published over the past two decades that have explored particular fault lines in the law of armed conflict. As such, they examine the complex interplay between warfare and law, seeking to identify where the law and warfare appear to diverge, and where such apparent divergence can be accommodated through contextual interpretation of the law. Each essay examines a particular issue in either the jus ad bellum (the law governing resort to force) or jus in bello (international humanitarian law) that has proven contentious in terms of applying extant norms to the evolving face of armed conflict. Among the topics addressed are counter-terrorism, cyber operations, asymmetrical warfare, assassination, environmental warfare and the participation of civilians in hostilities.

Book Summary:

“Consistently gripping.… [I]t’s possessed of a zest and omnivorous curiosity that reflects the boundless energy of its subject.” —Steve Donoghue, Christian Science Monitor Oliver Wendell Holmes escaped death twice as a young Union officer in the Civil War. He lived ever after with unwavering moral courage, unremitting scorn for dogma, and an insatiable intellectual curiosity. During his nearly three decades on the Supreme Court, he wrote a series of opinions that would prove prophetic in securing freedom of speech, protecting the rights of criminal defendants, and ending the Court’s reactionary resistance to social and economic reforms. As a pioneering legal scholar, Holmes revolutionized the understanding of common law. As an enthusiastic friend, he wrote thousands of letters brimming with an abiding joy in fighting the good fight. Drawing on many previously unpublished letters and records, Stephen Budiansky offers the fullest portrait yet of this pivotal American figure.

Book Summary:

A masterful narrative—with echoes of Evicted and The Color of Law—that brings to life the structures, policies, and beliefs that divide us Mark Lange and Nicole Smith have never met, but if they make the moves they are contemplating—Mark, a white suburbanite, to West Baltimore, and Nicole, a black woman from a poor city neighborhood, to a prosperous suburb—it will defy the way the Baltimore region has been programmed for a century. It is one region, but separate worlds. And it was designed to be that way. In this deeply reported, revelatory story, duPont Award–winning journalist Lawrence Lanahan chronicles how the region became so highly segregated and why its fault lines persist today. Mark and Nicole personify the enormous disparities in access to safe housing, educational opportunities, and decent jobs. As they eventually pack up their lives and change places, bold advocates and activists—in the courts and in the streets—struggle to figure out what it will take to save our cities and communities: Put money into poor, segregated neighborhoods? Make it possible for families to move into areas with more opportunity? The Lines Between Us is a riveting narrative that compels reflection on America’s entrenched inequality—and on where the rubber meets the road not in the abstract, but in our own backyards. Taking readers from church sermons to community meetings to public hearings to protests to the Supreme Court to the death of Freddie Gray, Lanahan deftly exposes the intricacy of Baltimore’s hypersegregation through the stories of ordinary people living it, shaping it, and fighting it, day in and day out. This eye-opening account of how a city creates its black and white places, its rich and poor spaces, reveals that these problems are not intractable; but they are designed to endure until each of us—despite living in separate worlds—understands we have something at stake.

Book Summary:

The book provides an in-depth discussion of democratic theory questions in relation to refugee law. The work introduces readers to the evolution of refugee law and its core issues today, as well as central lines in the debate about democracy and migration. Bringing together these fields, the book links theoretical considerations and legal analysis. Based on its specific understanding of the refugee concept, it offers a reconstruction of refugee law as constantly confronted with the question of how to secure rights to those who have no voice in the democratic process. In this reconstruction, the book highlights, on the one hand, the need to look beyond the legal regulations for understanding the challenges and gaps in refugee protection. It is also the structural lack of political voice, the book argues, which shapes the refugee’s situation. On the other hand, the book opposes a view of law as mere expression of power and points out the dynamics within the law which reflect endeavors towards mitigating exclusion. The book will be essential reading for academics and researchers working in the areas of migration and refugee law, legal theory and political theory.

Book Summary:

Everybody wants to think of a great idea that will make them rich. A good indication that you have a great idea is that someone copies it but, by then it can be too late. This is too bad as a lot of the knowhow to protect your ideas is free but buried in a mass of detail and exceptions which most people put in the "too hard" basket. Some IP protection you must pay for, such as trademarks but it is well worth it, provided it is done properly. Intellectual Property ("IP") has been described by the Financial Times as one of the key drivers of business competitiveness in the 21st century. Therefore, a clear understanding is essential not only for creative people or entrepreneurs but for anyone who wants to succeed in business and not have their ideas stolen.It does not even need to be your idea. Using IP law you can cheaply gain ownership of other people's ideas and then use your business skills to make a killing.By focusing on the IP legal advice that his small to medium sized business clients have been willing to pay for, Paul Brennan has written a book which will enable you to say "that's my IP" and at least sound as if you know what your talking about which can be the cheapest and most powerful of weapons available to you.Illustrated by legal cartoons drawn by the author this little book combines the qualities of a useful reference book on IP law with wry humour and the odd belly laugh.YOU WILL LEARN ABOUT: - Identifying your IP- Protecting your brand and content- Who owns what in joint projects- Fights over names- Internet disputes- How to avoid unintentionally giving it awayPaul is uniquely qualified to write this book. He has practiced law in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia. His experience of IP enforcement with a US multi-national, as a partner in law firms in London and Sydney, and ten years in Asia have combined to give him a broad experience. A post graduate in international copyright law, he now runs his own general commercial and property law firm working with small to medium sized businesses.

In this era of moral relativism, many people have come to believe that life -- and by extension, the universe -- is inherently random. Not so, argues prominent self-help author T. Troward. To the contrary, the author contends in The Law and the Word that the universe is governed by a strict set of moral, spiritual, and metaphysical principles, and that only by learning and adhering to these natural laws can individuals achieve true success and fulfillment. An interesting and inspiring read for those drawn to the personal development genre.

Book Summary:

Brianna has longed for a life with more meaning and more purpose. What truly makes her soul come alive is music, but her life is full of laundry and dishes. One night her life is ripped apart by a fire in her village. With no family, no home, and no food, she must learn to survive on her own. But deep in her soul, anger is kindled against the Holy One for bringing so much pain into her life. Brianna sets off on an adventure that will ultimately bring her to the Hall of Minstrels, the heart of music in the kingdom, but all she ends up with is a pile of laundry and a stack of dishes. When life seems to have reached its dullest point and nothing really matters anymore, then the Holy One may pour destiny on our souls and overflow our lives with purpose and love. Then we realize that we don't have to know all of the answers to all of the questions, to know that the Holy One cares for us.

Book Summary:

Special Agent Gabriel Scott is the best that the FBI's Hate Crime division has to offer. He's got an impressive record of solved cases on his resume and a brilliant, slippery mind that keeps even the worst criminal minds on their toes. When he comes to Plymouth, Massachusetts, to investigate a series of apparent hate crimes, he quickly realizes that everything is not what it seems. When the town's prettiest alpha lawyer starts laying it on thick, he knows that something's definitely not right. So does his temporary partner, Plymouth PD Sergeant Vinnie Curtis. Vinnie's lived in Plymouth his whole life. He knows that Plymouth isn't a hateful place, so he resents the demand for FBI involvement. He's not sure if he's more or less upset that said involvement comes in the form of a drop-dead gorgeous omega who seems to be made for him. Gabe and Vinnie connect almost immediately, and it doesn't take long before they give in to the attraction that they've struggled to ignore. When the ghosts of their respective pasts reach out from the grave to interfere with the case, will history keep them apart or will love conquer all?
