Written in a fresh and lively style and supported by a strong analytical framework, the sixth edition of Pearce & Stevens' Trusts and Equitable Obligations continues to provide students with a relevant and exciting examination of a subject that can seem remote and difficult. Revised diagrams and flow charts help to explain difficult topics such as the operation of the pari passu, first in, first out, and rolling charge methods of allocating funds between contributors and the circumstances in which strangers can be held personally liable as dishonest accessories to or knowing recipients of trust property in breach of trust. The authors take a modern and conceptual approach to the wide array of topics covered in undergraduate equity and trusts modules, helping students explore the many ways trusts impact on everyday life and in the world of finance and commerce. The text is accessible without compromising detailed critical comment, and engages with key issues such as the protection of privacy, enforcing informal promises, trusts and the family home, and assessing public interest in charities. Extensive rewriting has enabled the incorporation of substantial new material without an increase in the overall length of the book.

A Treatise on State and Federal Control of Persons and Property in the United States

Tiedeman, Christopher G. A Treatise on State and Federal Control of Persons and Property in the United States Considered from both a Civil and Criminal Standpoint. St. Louis: The F.H. Thomas Law Book Co., 1900. Two volumes. Reprinted 2002 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN 1-58477-229-8. Cloth. $195. * A conservative jurist known for his important study A Treatise on the Limitations of Police Power in the United States Considered from Both a Civil and Criminal Standpoint, Tiedeman [1857-1903] completed this work at a time when the spirit of social and economic laissez-faire of the Gilded Age was giving way to demands for greater degrees of governmental regulation in response to the emergence of modern corporate capitalism and, especially, the rapid growth of Socialism, Communism, and Anarchism. For Tiedeman, the fundamental issue is the need to control these groups in the interests of public order while preserving their rights of self-determination as guaranteed by the Constitution. He was optimistic that popular faith in the Constitution is strong enough to maintain this delicate balance.

The Company of Strangers

Author: Paul Seabright
Publisher: Princeton University Press
ISBN: 1400834783
Release Date: 2010-04-12
Genre: Business & Economics

The Company of Strangers shows us the remarkable strangeness, and fragility, of our everyday lives. This completely revised and updated edition includes a new chapter analyzing how the rise and fall of social trust explain the unsustainable boom in the global economy over the past decade and the financial crisis that succeeded it. Drawing on insights from biology, anthropology, history, psychology, and literature, Paul Seabright explores how our evolved ability of abstract reasoning has allowed institutions like money, markets, cities, and the banking system to provide the foundations of social trust that we need in our everyday lives. Even the simple acts of buying food and clothing depend on an astonishing web of interaction that spans the globe. How did humans develop the ability to trust total strangers with providing our most basic needs?
