by Alejandro Sánchez

El libro, así, pinta cuáles son los problemas que resquebrajaron México... y alerta: si no se solucionan, volverá a ocurrir una tragedia similar.

The 1913 McKinney Store Collapse (Disaster)

by Carol O'Keefe Wilson

A powerful vibration, a deafening noise and a swell of thick dust brought residents of McKinney pouring into the public square on the afternoon of January 23, 1913. What they saw was horrifying--an entire building had collapsed, demolishing two popular retailers, the Cheeves Mississippi Store and Tingle Implement Store. Their contents, including many shoppers and clerks, spilled out into the streets, where layer upon layer of debris settled into a massive, ragged pile. In spite of a herculean rescue effort, eight people perished. Carol Wilson sifts through the disaster and its aftermath, dredging up some troubling facts about how the tragedy might have been prevented.

The 1998–2000 Eritrea-Ethiopia War and Its Aftermath in International Legal Perspective: From the 2000 Algiers Agreements to the 2018 Peace Agreement

by Andrea De Guttry Harry H. G. Post Gabriella Venturini

This book centres on the war that raged between Eritrea and Ethiopia from 1998 to 2000, a war that caused great loss of life and tremendous devastation. It analyses the war in great detail from an international legal perspective: the nature and the state of the boundary conflict preceding the actual armed conflict, the military actions themselves, the role of the UN peace-keeping mission, the responsibility for the multitude of explosive remnants of the war left behind. Ample attention is paid to the decisions of the Eritrea-Ethiopia Claims Commission and the Eritrea-Ethiopia Boundary Commission. This study is not limited to the war and the period immediately following it, it also examines its more extended aftermath prolonging the analysis as far as the more recent improvement in the relations between Eritrea and Ethiopia, away from a situation of ‘no war, no peace’ that prevailed after the armed conflict ended. The analysis of the war and its aftermath is not only in terms of international legal issues, it has been placed in a wider than strictly legal perspective. The book is a valuable work for academics and practitioners in international law, human rights and humanitarian law in particular, for political scientists, diplomats, civil servants, historians, and all those others seriously interested in the Horn of Africa. Andrea de Guttry is Full Professor of Public International Law at the Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna in Pisa, Italy. Harry H.G. Post is Adjunct Professor in the Faculté Libre de Droit of the Université Catholique de Lille in Lille, France. Gabriella Venturini is Professor Emerita in the Dipartimento di Studi internazionali, giuridici e storico-politici of the Università degli Studi di Milano in Milan, Italy.

19S: El día que cimbró México

by Yohali Reséndiz

Una mirada a las fallas estructurales del gobierno y la corrupción de las instituciones. La coincidencia con el temblor de 1985: el mismo día y mes, no podía ser menos macabra y triste; pero, ¿qué dejó a los mexicanos este fenómeno de la naturaleza? ¿Cómo reaccionaron los gobiernos estatales y federal? ¿Qué lecciones de vida nos dio, una vez más, la sociedad? Yohali Reséndiz, experta en el análisis de problemas sociales, ofrece en este libro una serie de testimonios relevantes sobre quienes salieron a la calle a ayudar a sus semejantes y enfrentaron el desastre. Nos habla de los héroes anónimos que interrumpieron su asombro y dolor para compartir en brigadas y donativos su solidaridad. El libro deja en claro verdades impactantes: con el derrumbe de varios edificios se puso de manifiesto la corrupción del negocio inmobiliario; algunos grupos políticos retuvieron lasdonaciones con fines electorales y se descubrieron severas omisiones en el reglamento de construcciones. El gobierno nunca estuvo preparado para enfrentar el desastre y además reaccionó tarde. ¿Por qué el TEC de Monterrey, en la Ciudad de México, cerró la posibilidad de ayuda de voluntarios y se preocupó más por limpiar el desastre que por la solidaridad? 19S: El día que cimbró México destaca la participación desinteresada de ciudadanos de todas las esferas sociales, revela el pésimo manejo de algunos medios de comunicación ante el suceso -la historia lamentable de la inexistente niña Frida Sofía- y demuestra cómo a pesar de sus gobiernos corruptos, México se levanta de nuevo para denunciar y exigir justicia.

He is planning a deadly surprise for Christmas morning. And he has commissioned dozens of criminal colleagues to take actions that will mask his plans. All that Lindsay and the SFPD can figure out is that Loman's greed -- for riches, for bloodshed, for attention -- is limitless. <P><P>Solving crimes never happens on schedule, but as this criminal mastermind unleashes credible threats by the hour, the month of December is upended for the Women's Murder Club.

2,000 Mules: They Thought We'd Never Find Out. They Were Wrong.

by Dinesh D'Souza

At last, bestselling author Dinesh D'Souza exposes the powerful evidence of voting fraud that you were told didn't exist. Also, a major motion picture documentary.THE FIX WAS IN The 2020 presidential election was rife with fraud orchestrated by the Democratic Party. That&’s not just an accusation; it&’s now, thanks to bestselling author and investigative journalist Dinesh D&’Souza, an established fact. With eyewitness testimony and the pinpoint precision and analytic sophistication of the forensic technique of geotracking, D&’Souza demonstrates how an already corrupt system put in place by Democratic Party hacks and &“community organizers&” was taken over and supercharged by national-level operatives to jeopardize the integrity of the election. The key figure: the mule. A paid cut-out. A criminal deliveryman. The stooge found at the intersection where election cheating and double-dealing hit the road. The mule is the crook who physically takes a sack of ballots provided by shady NGOs and political machines—the &“community activist organizations&” made famous by former President Obama, for instance—and dumps those ballots in collection boxes throughout a voting district. Do enough of this, and you have planted voter fraud across a nation. Documentary filmmaker extraordinaire and bestselling author of America, Death of a Nation, and United States of Socialism, Dinesh D'Souza exposes powerful evidence of the colossal voting racketeering that you were told didn&’t exist. Here you will find the receipts—the transcripts and confirmatory details—for the facts establishing 2020 election fraud presented in D&’Souza&’s major motion picture documentary, 2,000 Mules. D&’Souza makes a powerful argument that 2020 was a stolen election. More important, D&’Souza proves it.

The 2017 FIDIC Contracts

by William Godwin

Provides a clear and comprehensive guide to the 2017 FIDIC contracts—written by a member of the FIDIC Updates Task Group FIDIC contracts are the most widely used engineering standard form contracts internationally but until 2017 the three main forms (the Red, Yellow and Silver Books) had not been amended or updated for nearly two decades, since the first editions were published in 1999. Written by a specialist lawyer who was member of the FIDIC Updates Task Group responsible for writing the new contracts, this book examines in detail the many substantial changes they have introduced. After providing an overview the contracts are examined clause by clause with the aim of showing how each compares and contrasts with the others and how the second editions compare and contrast with the first. The first chapter describes how the Red, Yellow and Silver Books evolved from earlier contract forms and the distinctive characteristics of each, before providing an overview of the updates, including new potential risks for both Employer and Contractor, and then examining, in the second chapter, key general provisions such as the new rules on notices and limitation of liability. Chapter 3 examines the enhanced role of the Engineer in the Red and Yellow Books/Employer’s Representative’s function in the Silver including the new procedure for determinations as well as the Employer’s obligations and contract administration. The Contractor’s obligations are considered in chapter 4 while chapter 5 examines his responsibility for design in the Yellow and Silver Books. Chapters 6 to 14 deal respectively with plant, materials and workmanship and staff and labour; time-related provisions in the three contracts including extensions of time, and the Employer’s right to suspend the works; testing on and after completion and the Employer’s taking over of the works; defects after taking over, acceptance of the works and unfulfilled obligations; measurement (in the Red Book), the Contract Price and payment; the new variations regime and adjustments to the Price; termination and suspension; care of the works and indemnities and Exceptional Events (previously, Force Majeure). An important feature of the new contracts is their increased emphasis on clarity in the claims process and on dispute avoidance. These topics are examined in the final two chapters, 15 and 16, which deal respectively with the new claims and dispute resolution provisions of the 2017 forms. FIDIC contracts are the most widely used standard forms of contract for international engineering and construction projects Provides a clear and comprehensive guide to the 2017 FIDIC Red, Yellow and Silver Books Written by a senior specialist lawyer and member of the FIDIC 2017 Updates Task Group responsible for writing the new contracts Accessible to those with little or no familiarity with FIDIC contracts The 2017 FIDIC Contracts is an important guide for anyone engaged in international projects, including employers, contractors, engineers, lawyers, suppliers and project financiers/sponsors.

The 2018 Global Migration Compact: A Major Breakthrough or an Opportunity Lost or Both?

by Bimal Ghosh

This book analyses the 2018 Global Compact on Migration and the need for, and difficulties of adopting a multilateral agreement on migration. Particular attention is given to the challenges and constraints involved, given not only the divergent needs and conditions of different counties but also the varying interests of different groups within countries. A synoptic history of previous attempts at reaching a multilateral migration agreement is provided, from 1927 onwards, to give context to the recent negotiations. The lack of a clear recognition of migration as a global process and the absence of a firm commitment to responsibility- sharing arrangements are highlighted. The book explains why the 2018 migration is both a breakthrough and at the same time an opportunity lost. In doing so,] it also analyses the limitations of the present deal, including inadequate attention to the root causes of forced and disruptive migration in origin countries, and highlights how the 2018 agreement can be built upon to create a dynamic harmony in the global migration system. The book will be relevant to researchers and policy makers as well as to professionals and activists concerned with migration, labour economics and international development.

The 2018 Yearbook of the Digital Ethics Lab (Digital Ethics Lab Yearbook #1)

by Carl Öhman David Watson

This book explores a wide range of topics in digital ethics. It features 11 chapters that analyze the opportunities and the ethical challenges posed by digital innovation, delineate new approaches to solve them, and offer concrete guidance to harness the potential for good of digital technologies. The contributors are all members of the Digital Ethics Lab (the DELab), a research environment that draws on a wide range of academic traditions.The chapters highlight the inherently multidisciplinary nature of the subject, which cannot be separated from the epistemological foundations of the technologies themselves or the political implications of the requisite reforms. Coverage illustrates the importance of expert knowledge in the project of designing new reforms and political systems for the digital age. The contributions also show how this task requires a deep self-understanding of who we are as individuals and as a species.The questions raised here have ancient -- perhaps even timeless -- roots. The phenomena they address may be new. But, the contributors examine the fundamental concepts that undergird them: good and evil, justice and truth. Indeed, every epoch has its great challenges. The role of philosophy must be to redefine the meaning of these concepts in light of the particular challenges it faces. This is true also for the digital age. This book takes an important step towards redefining and re-implementing fundamental ethical concepts to this new era.
