La 13e édition des Grands arrêts de la jurisprudence civile coïncide avec le quatre-vingtième anniversaire de leur parution sous la signature de Henri Capitant. C'est dire que cet ouvrage est le précurseur de tous les recueils de Grands arrêts actuellement existants. Jamais démenti, son succès vient de ce qu'il offre un accès direct aux grandes décisions qui ont permis au Code civil de s'adapter à la réalité sociale contemporaine. L'ouvrage est scindé en deux tomes. Le premier volume réunit la totalité des matières étudiées, d'une université à l'autre, en licence 1 : Introduction, mais aussi droit des personnes, droit de la famille et droit des biens. S'y ajoutent le droit des régimes matrimoniaux et celui des successions et des libéralités qui, situés au confluent du droit de la famille et du droit du patrimoine, sont le prolongement naturel des disciplines précédentes. Le second volume rassemble la théorie générale des obligations (acte juridique, responsabilité, quasi-contrats, régime général) ainsi que les disciplines qui évoluent dans son orbite : contrats spéciaux, sûretés. Il correspond aux matières généralement enseignées en licence 2 et en licence 3. À l'occasion de cette 13e édition, les auteurs ont procédé à une importante mise à jour : nombre de commentaires ont été partiellement ou totalement réécrits pour prendre en compte les évolutions survenues depuis la précédente édition, il y a huit ans.

Islamic Divorces in Europe
Author: Pauline Kruiniger
Publisher: Eleven International Pub
This book examines the issue of the recognition of Islamic divorces in European states. Repudiation-based divorces are particularly notorious for their presumed violation of fundamental rights of women and are consequently often not recognized. The resulting limping of legal relationships affects other fundamental rights of the persons involved, such as the right to marry and the right of free movement. For this reason, the book scrutinizes classical Islamic divorce law and the contemporary divorce laws and practices of Egypt, Iran, Morocco, and Pakistan, as well as the Dutch, English, and French recognition policies and relevant EU (case) law. By introducing various soft and hard law solutions, the book provides legal practitioners with the information and tools to tackle major shortcomings in the recognition of Islamic divorces. It is therefore a must read for legal practitioners, such as registrars, notaries, and members of the judiciary, as well as academics. [Subject: Private International Law, European Law, Civil Law, Divorce Law, Islamic Law, Comparative Law, Human Rights Law]
In this 3rd edition, the author draws extensively on the recent case-law of the Strasbourg organs to present a wide-ranging account of the protection afforded to refugees under the European Convention on Human Rights.
In this book, first published in 1983, three independent scientists examine the results of research and development into the environmental aspects of hazardous wastes management. Within a legislative framework, the limits of our scientific knowledge are carefully defined and the ways in which this knowledge is extrapolated and applied are examined. Significant areas of uncertainty are identified and the authors have not been afraid to draw attention to the fallibility of certain interpretations. Landfill science, leachate characteristics, pollutant attenuation and toxicity measurement are reviewed. Alternative technologies such as chemical treatment and incineration are compared. Risk assessment, cost implications and public acceptance are examined. It provides an objective assessment of the scientific and practical issues involved and constitutes a valuable source book for all concerned with hazardous wastes management, planning and regulatory control, pollution prevention and environmental protection.

A gripping literary thriller and smash bestseller that has taken Italy, France, Germany and the UK by storm. Six severed arms are discovered, arranged in a mysterious circle and buried in a clearing in the woods. Five of them appear to belong to missing girls between the ages of eight and eighteen. The sixth is yet to be identified. Worse still, the girls' bodies, alive or dead, are nowhere to be found. Lead investigators Mila Vasquez, a celebrated profiler, and Goran Gavila, an eerily prescient criminologist, dive into the case. They're confident they've got the right suspect in their sights until they discover no link between him and any of the kidnappings except the first. The evidence in the case of the second missing child points in a vastly different direction, creating more questions than it answers. Vasquez and Gavila begin to wonder if they've been brought in to take the fall in a near-hopeless case. Is it all coincidence? Or is a copycat criminal at work? Obsessed with a case that becomes more tangled and intense as they unravel the layers of evil, Gavila and Vasquez find that their lives are increasingly in each other's hands. THE WHISPERER, as sensational a bestseller in Europe as the Stieg Larsson novels, is that rare creation: a thought-provoking, intelligent thriller that is also utterly unputdownable.
Family Law in Nigeria.

This is the third edition of an established and leading book on family law in Nigeria. Since the last edition in 1990 significant judicial and statutory enactments have taken place in the area of study. The new edition incorporates these changes and explains their implications.

The new Child's Right Act of 2003 and the similar state legislations have been analysed in the three new chapters. The non-customary law rules in the intestate succession have been extensively recast to reflect the provisions of the Marriage act as contained in the Lawa of the Federation of Nigeria 2004. This edition has devoted considerable attention to the applicable customary laws on the family and provides extensive treatment of Islamic Law Rules and their interpretations and application by the superior court. Familu law in Nigeria presents a fresh view not only on the applicable rules on Nigerian family law but also suggest new directions and underlines the socio-economic implications.

The French Civil Code
Author: Jean-Louis Halpérin
Publisher: Routledge Cavendish
This book charts the formation of the French Civil Code, examining both its public and private effects. From the sixteenth to the eighteenth century, French private law was very different in the various parts of the country. In northern and central France, there were as many as sixty-five general customs in force, as well as over three hundred local customs, often differing from them in detail. As the feeling of nationhood grew, so did the idea of replacing the existing variety of laws by a single private law, possibly a code, common to all of France. 'A single body of law, called the Code Civil is to be created' proclaimed the Law of 21 March 1804, which was created by the amalgamation of thirty-six texts. The French Civil Code analyzes the Code using contemporary and modern sources, including the beautiful and concise extract from H.A.L. Fisher's History of Europe which gives an English historian's appraisal of Napoleon's contribution to the Code Civil. This text will appeal to all students of and those with an interest in international law.
