He's a larger than life MMA fighter. She's a quiet paralegal. The world they live in is under attack. Will they survive long enough to get their HEA? Malakai Palamo is the seventh son of a seventh son. He left his Samoan island home in search of his mate. Almost one hundred years later, he faintly catches her scent. Kai doesn't give up until he finds her. That should be the end of it, but nothing comes easy for the Stone Society Gargoyles, and Malakai is no different. Josie Pierson has spent the last ten years living in her sister Presley's shadow. Both her sister and their father are successful lawyers, and Josie is their paralegal, working her ass off to make them look good. She's quiet, underappreciated, and constantly wishing she had what her sister has. Until she meets the man Presley wants. The man who wants Josie instead. When Drago takes his war with the Stone Society to the next level, lives are at risk in more ways than one. Malakai and Josie rush off to Samoa to hide out, but they aren't as safe as they should be. The excitement heats up in book 13, and someone's going to get burned.
As the Titanic and her passengers sank slowly into the Atlantic Ocean after striking an iceberg late in the evening of April 14, 1912, a nearby ship looked on. Second Officer Herbert Stone, in charge of the midnight watch on the SS Californian sitting idly a few miles north, saw the distress rockets that the Titanic fired. He alerted the captain, Stanley Lord, who was sleeping in the chartroom below, but Lord did not come to the bridge. Eight rockets were fired during the dark hours of the midnight watch, and eight rockets were ignored. The next morning, the Titanic was at the bottom of the sea, and more than 1,500 people were dead. When they learned of the extent of the tragedy, Lord and Stone did everything they could to hide their role in the disaster, but, pursued by newspapermen, lawyers, and political leaders in America and England, their terrible secret was eventually revealed. The Midnight Watch is a fictional telling of what may have occurred that night on the SS Californian and the resulting desperation of Officer Stone and Captain Lord in the aftermath of their inaction. Told not only from the perspective of the SS Californian crew but also through the eyes of a family of third-class passengers who perished in the disaster, the narrative is drawn together by Steadman, a tenacious Boston journalist who does not rest until the truth is found. David Dyer's The Midnight Watch is a powerful and dramatic debut - the result of many years of research in Liverpool, London, New York, and Boston and informed by the author's own experiences as a ship's officer and a lawyer. 1.

This book examines Scotland s experience of silicosis, the oldest occupational disease, during the twentieth century. Four key industries are explored: the stone industries, foundries, building trades and coal mining. Thorough examination of primary sources raises key questions relating to contested knowledge, official recognition of the disease, and the effectiveness of preventative legislation. Integral to these themes was the distinctive nature of Scotland s approach to the silica hazard, where the fragmented and divisive character of both employers organisations and trade unions was very much in evidence, and where lawyers led campaigns against what they called the English disease . Nonetheless, legislation was introduced and by the 1970s silicosis was largely considered a bygone hazard - but this was not the end of the story. Since the mid-1990s, scientists, medical professionals and trade unions have again turned their attention to silicosis in Scotland. This book will therefore interest not only historians, students and those affected by occupational respiratory disease, but it also contributes to current debates amongst health professionals, legislators and regulators.

'This volume is a timely and rich resource for modern constitutionalists. The essays are engaging, incisive and offer broad political and legal perspectives on one of the central questions in contemporary constitutional debates.' Professor Adrienne Stone, University of Melbourne, Australia 'Recent developments in constitution-making and amending practices have implicated a range of methods of encouraging direct public participation, through crowd-sourcing, referenda, and more. This book examines the ways that these developments accentuate a range of fundamental issues dealing with the constituent power, sovereignty, and deliberation, through conceptual analysis and empirical studies. An important contribution to an increasingly important discussion.' Professor Mark Tushnet,Harvard Law School, USA &#8216;This book reveals both good and bad practice, and problems of how to cope with citizen choices that are not mandated at formal election times. The book is timely and well written and appeals to a broad cross-section of readers from political science to constitutional lawyers. It is highly recommended.&#8217; Professor JohnMcElldowney, Warwick University, UK

Knowledge was passed from person to person through speech. It was obvious that, as the speech could not be touched and seized, knowledge could therefore not be owned in the same way as we own objects. Knowledge was clearly a matter of human relationships. With the invention of writing, all possible means were used to store information: bones, shells, clay, stone, animal skin, paper, wood, and metal. They all shared a common point: they materialized information. This led to people and lawyers coming to believe that knowledge could be an object of property, and ultimately, the concept of intellectual property. Considering the author's right as a right of property was not of great inconvenience as long as knowledge remained materialized. As digitalization has once again dematerialized knowledge, we have returned to the beginning of the story, where the relationships between people were the most important point about sharing and passing information. From this perspective, it is easy to understand why the now outdated copyright laws and business models of the printed book industry should be modernized. They should take more into account the balance of people's relationships, instead of staying focused on the defense of an impossible property. In the emerging virtual book market - made possible by the existence of digitalization, print-on-demand and the Internet - intellectual property is not the only impossible legal concept. Justice as the art of sharing scarcity is also useless. Easy to read, this book proposes guidelines to modernize copyright law and a philosophy of justice suited to the virtual economy. Without it, it will be impossible either to create an efficient copyright law or to collectively draw on all the benefits that new communication technologies can bring us.
'Law Books in Action: Essays on the Anglo-American Legal Treatise' explores the history of the legal treatise in the common law world. Rather than looking at treatises as shortcuts from 'law in books' to 'law in action', the essays in this collection ask what treatises can tell us about what troubled legal professionals at a given time, what motivated them to write what they did, and what they hoped to achieve. This book, then, is the first study of the legal treatise as a 'law book in action', an active text produced by individuals with ideas about what they wanted the law to be, not a mere stepping-stone to codes and other forms of legal writing, but a multifaceted genre of legal literature in its own right, practical and fanciful, dogmatic and ornamental in turn. This book will be of interest to legal scholars, lawyers and judges, as well as to anyone else with a scholarly interest in law in general, and legal history in particular.
