Atiyah and Adams' Sale of Goods
"Once more, we were delighted to take on the task of updating this text for its 14th edition, having taken over editorial responsibilities from the late John Adams from the 13th edition. In our preface to the previous edition, we recorded the sudden passing of Professor Adams. Sadly, in this preface, we must note another passing: on 30 March 2018, Patrick Atiyah, who wrote the 1st-8th editions of this book and continues to give the book its name, passed away at the age of 87. Patrick was one of those giants of academic contract law whose contributions continue to be read and to inspire scholars everywhere. We are both mindful of our task to maintain the scholarly rigour which he gave to this book as we take it into the future. This edition is also the first time since the 9th edition without a Scottish editor. Professor Hector MacQueen had been responsible for adding Scottish content since the 10th edition (2001), but decided that he would discontinue this role after the 13th edition was published in 2016. We are very grateful for Hector's contributions to the work. On the advice of the book's publishers, this edition has been put together without the benefit of a Scottish editor, although we have, of course, continued to take decisions from the Scottish courts into account in updating the various chapters. Since the last edition was published, there have been few major developments in the law on the sale of goods, aside from the difficult ruling by the Supreme Court in PST Energy 7 Shipping LLC v OW Bunker Malta Ltd [2016] UKSC 23 (which arrived too late for proper consideration in the previous edition). We have updated the text in light of recent cases and academic writings where appropriate. Furthermore, we have continued our task of streamlining the running order of the chapters, and we have sought to make gentle updates to the language of the book, preserving its rigour but ensuring it remains accessible to a contemporary audience. In some instances, we have curtailed or removed altogether the detailed discussion of the pre-1994 case-law which had become redundant as a result of the changes made to the Sale of Goods Act at that time. The rise of digital technology and new business models in the digital economy will invariably have an impact on the law concerning the sale of goods, but at this point, the real impact is not yet known. In some places, we have alluded to the possible significance of digital technology, and this could well become a more significant theme in future editions"--

Jewels of Glory
The nature of a bomb is to destroy, but the nature of people is to overcome. In a world racked with religious and racial prejudice, intolerance and division, could a Jewish jeweller, a Christian dress-designer, an Arab Sheikh and an Atheist policeman, of such entirely different lifestyles and faiths, dare to do more than just show a passive toleration towards each other? Would bereaved and heartbroken victims recognise and respect the same traumas in the terrorist's family? Could 3,500 years old jewels of fabulous and sacred value be discovered by ordinary persons who were elevated from their obscure lives to be thrust into a world-travelling, danger-ridden adventure? Are the most beautiful gemstones often discovered hidden underground, just waiting to be lifted out into the light? Jewels of Glory answers all these questions with a resounding 'yes!'.

Thoughts on Government

release date: Oct 29, 2014
Thoughts on Government
Thoughts on Government, or in full Thoughts on Government, Applicable to the Present State of the American Colonies, was written by John Adams during the spring of 1776 in response to a resolution of the North Carolina Provincial Congress which requested Adams' suggestions on the establishment of a new government and the drafting of a constitution. Adams says that "Politics is the Science of human Happiness -and the Felicity of Societies depends on the Constitutions of Government under which they live." Many of the ideas put forth in Adams' essay were adopted in December 1776 by the framers of North Carolina's first constitution. The document is notable in that Adams sketches out the three branches of American government: the executive, judicial, and legislative branches, all with a system of checks and balances. Furthermore, in response to Common Sense by Thomas Paine, Adams rejects the idea of a single legislative body, fearing it may become tyrannical or self-serving (as in the case of Holland at the time). Thus, Adams also conceived of the idea that two legislative bodies should serve as checks to the power of the other. John Adams (October 30 1735 - July 4, 1826) was the second president of the United States (1797-1801), having earlier served as the first vice president of the United States (1789-1797). An American Founding Father, Adams was a statesman, diplomat, and a leading advocate of American independence from Great Britain. Well educated, he was an Enlightenment political theorist who promoted republicanism, as well as a strong central government, and wrote prolifically about his often seminal ideas-both in published works and in letters to his wife and key adviser Abigail Adams. Adams was a lifelong opponent of slavery, having never bought a slave. In 1770 he provided a principled, controversial, and successful legal defense to the British soldiers accused in the Boston Massacre, because he believed in the right to counsel and the "protect[ion] of innocence." Adams came to prominence in the early stages of the American Revolution. A lawyer and public figure in Boston, as a delegate from Massachusetts to the Continental Congress, he played a leading role in persuading Congress to declare independence. He assisted Thomas Jefferson in drafting the Declaration of Independence in 1776, and was its primary advocate in the Congress. Later, as a diplomat in Europe, he helped negotiate the eventual peace treaty with Great Britain, and was responsible for obtaining vital governmental loans from Amsterdam bankers. A political theorist and historian, Adams largely wrote the Massachusetts Constitution in 1780, which together with his earlier Thoughts on Government, influenced American political thought. One of his greatest roles was as a judge of character: in 1775, he nominated George Washington to be commander-in-chief, and 25 years later nominated John Marshall to be Chief Justice of the United States. Adams' revolutionary credentials secured him two terms as George Washington's vice president and his own election in 1796 as the second president. During his one term as president, he encountered ferocious attacks by the Jeffersonian Republicans, as well as the dominant faction in his own Federalist Party led by his bitter enemy Alexander Hamilton. Adams signed the controversial Alien and Sedition Acts, and built up the army and navy especially in the face of an undeclared naval war (called the "Quasi-War") with France, 1798-1800. The major accomplishment of his presidency was his peaceful resolution of the conflict in the face of Hamilton's opposition.
