Tort law is a subject of primary importance in the study and practice of the common law in Caribbean jurisdictions. This work is now well established as the leading text on tort law in the region, and this fifth edition has been updated throughout to incorporate developments in law and legal thinking, including special contributions on medical negligence and the misuse of private information from the Hon Justice Roy Anderson and Dr Vanessa Kodilinye. The accessible writing style and integration of up-to-date material enables students to grasp the salient points and develop a thorough understanding of Tort Law in the Caribbean. Although conceived primarily as a text for the LLB degree courses in Caribbean universities, Commonwealth Caribbean Tort Law is also essential reading for students preparing for the CAPE Law examinations and the various paralegal courses in the region. Legal practitioners will find the book useful as a work of ready reference, and it will also be of interest to those business executives, industrialists, insurance agents and journalists who require some knowledge of this most important area of the law.

This important new text is the product of several years of research of the family law of fifteen Commonwealth Caribbean jurisdictions. It is the first and only legal text that comprehensively covers all the main substantive areas of spousal family law, including marriage, divorce, financial support, property rights and domestic violence. The rights of the statutory spouse in the jurisdictions of Barbados, Belize, Guyana, Jamaica, and Trinidad and Tobago are examined, thus addressing, on a jurisdictional basis, an important area of spousal family that is seldom covered in English family law texts. The book also covers the number and variations of divorce regimes applicable to the region – the matrimonial offence divorce model of Guyana and Montserrat, the English five fact model of Trinidad and Tobago, Dominica, Grenada, Anguilla, and St Vincent and the Grenadines, the hybrid model of Antigua and Barbuda, Belize and St Kitts and Nevis, and the no fault model of Jamaica and Barbados. This book will prove an indispensable resource for law students and legal academics, as well as for family law practitioners across the English-speaking Caribbean. Other professionals, including sociologists and social workers, will also find the book useful and informative.

Commonwealth Caribbean Business Law breaks away from the traditional English approach of treating business law primarily as the law of contract and agency. It provides a broad overview of the foundation of various legal systems and goes on to examine the various areas of legal liability that may impact on business activities. These areas include tort law, criminal law, internet law and payment in business transactions. Specifically, the book targets the development of business law in several Commonwealth jurisdictions, including Canada and Australia, but with special focus on legal developments in Commonwealth Caribbean countries. The approach of the book is to present excerpts from judgments, so as to enable students to understand legal principles as espoused by the judiciary without the filtering bias of authors. This new title is essential reading for students taking the LLB and Business Degree courses in the Caribbean and other commonwealth jurisdictions.

Nach 1989 waren Landkarten plötzlich nicht länger in Mode. Die Grenzen sollten geöffnet werden für Menschen, Güter, Kapital und Ideen. An die Stelle der alten Karten traten Graphiken, welche die ökonomische Verflechtung innerhalb der EU illustrierten. Heute erleben wir einen ideologischen Gezeitenwechsel: Wo die Mehrheit der Europäer noch vor einigen Jahren optimistisch auf die Globalisierung blickte, empfinden sie Migration und die Rückkehr der Geopolitik als Quelle der Unsicherheit. Ivan Krastev untersucht die Ursachen für diesen Wandel und erörtert, welche Formen die europäische Desintegration annehmen könnte. Ein Zerfall der EU, so Krastev, wäre eine Tragödie, die den Kontinent zu internationaler Bedeutungslosigkeit verurteilen würde.

This is the first textbook to deal with criminal practice and procedure as it relates to the Caribbean. The text clarifies the state law in each jurisdiction, making it clear when laws are the same or similar and statutory law in the Caribbean is compared to English Law throughout. Statute law and common law are examined in the relevant jurisdictions including Trinidad, Tobago, Guyana, Barbados, Jamaica and Grenada among others. Although the laws of each jurisdiction have many things in common, Seetahal makes it clear when differences in laws between the jurisdictions apply. The impact of statutory changes are also analyzed alongside recent developments. Revised throughout, this new edition addresses the recent changes in law in St Lucia and the Bahamas bringing this popular text right up-to-date. Although written for law students, as the only book which deals specifically with criminal practice and procedure in the Caribbean, it is also a useful reference tool for criminal justice professionals.

Commonwealth Caribbean Employment and Labour Law will be essential reading for students enrolled on Employment Law, Discrimination and Dismissal Law courses in the Caribbean"--
