Despite the common belief that they are found only in the common law tradition, trusts have long been known in mixed jurisdictions even where they have a civilian law of property. Trusts have now been introduced by legislation in a number of civilian jurisdictions, such as France and China. Other recent developments include the reception of foreign trusts through private international law in Italy and Switzerland and the inclusion of a chapter on trusts in Europe's Draft Common Frame of Reference. As a result, there is a growing interest in the ways in which the trust can be accommodated in civil law systems. This collection explores this question, as well as general issues such as the juridical nature of the trust, the role and qualifications of the trustee and particular developments in specific jurisdictions.

Stories are a powerful element in preaching. They have a way of triggering connections and bringing life to otherwise mundane illustrations. Stories capture our imaginations, pique our memories, and envelop us in the drama of life. Glenn Ludwig brings to these messages on gospel lessons from the Revised Common Lectionary many personal stories drawn from his ministry. And the pericopes themselves (mostly from Luke) are filled with stories of Jesus' encounters with people. Ludwig's dynamic sermons are sure to captivate readers and draw them into a greater understanding of the scriptural texts. Titles include: On a Need-to-Know Basis (John 16:12-15) Lessons From a Picnic (Luke 9:11-17) A Grave Reality (Luke 7:11-17) Jesus' Travel Instructions (Luke 10:1-11, 16-20) Must I Love That Neighbor? (Luke 10:25-37) Glenn E. Ludwig is the senior pastor of First Lutheran Church in Ellicott City, Maryland. He holds degrees from Susquehanna University (Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania) and Lancaster Theological Seminary ("cum laude"). The author of several books on youth ministry, Ludwig has been a keynote speaker at over 100 youth gatherings in the U.S. and Canada.

This book is about trust and its implications for a medical theological ethics. Beginning with its earliest work, there has been attention to trust running through the bioethics literature in the United States, and much of this discussion has examined its theological elements. Clearly, trust is indispensable when describing the patient-physician relationship, so why is there a need for yet another study? There is no doubt that people generally trust physicians. Traditionally the physician is the patient's fiduciary agent, whose sole obligation is to act only in the patient's best interest. In recent times, however, there is a perception on the part of people within and without health care that physicians have other obligations that compete with their obligation to the patient. If we acknowledge that one price for the successes of technological biomedicine is high in terms of financial cost, another price of Sllccess seems to be distrust, cynicism, and suspicion directed by the public toward the medical profes sion. If this uneasiness is the price society pays for medical success, what is the price of success for the doctor? Because of their role within the social order, physicians have claimed and been granted autonomy, authority, and special status. In return, the profes sion has pledged to serve the well-being and interests of humankind. This fiduciary commitment becomes a taken-for-granted aspect of the physician's identity, both for the physician for whom this dedication is definitional and for the public which expects trustworthy service from this person.

In this new edition of The World is Flat, Thomas L. Friedman includes fresh stories and insights to help us understand the flattening of the world. Weaving new information into his overall thesis, and answering the questions he has been most frequently asked by parents and readers, this third edition also includes two new chapters -- on how to be a political activist and social entrepreneur in a flat world; and on the more troubling question of how to manage our reputations and privacy in a world where we are all becoming publishers and public figures. The World is Flat 3.0 is an essential update on globalization, its opportunities for individual empowerment, its achievements at lifting millions out of poverty, and its drawbacks -- environmental, social, and political, powerfully illuminated by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Lexus and the Olive Tree.

The essays in this volume confront stereotypical images of merchants as men, and sometimes women, who stood outside their cultures, beyond history. Ranging across eras, from medieval business practices to modern hucksterism of autobiographical morality tales, the authors of this volume find that merchants cannot be separated from their times. From the (Ottoman) Middle East to the (American) Midwest, the contributors to Trading Cultures emphasize the embeddedness of merchants in geographically and culturally specific contexts. The trading careers reconstructed in this book dwell on mercantile concerns with honor as much as profit, trust as much as truck, and, above all, familial connections as much as individuated enterprise.
