This book presents, analyses and evaluates the Principles of Latin American Contract Law (PLACL), a recent set of provisions aiming at the harmonisation of contract law at a regional level. As such, the PLACL are the most recent exponent of the many proposals for transnational sets of 'principles of contract law' that were drafted or published over the past 20 years, either at the global or the regional level. These include the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts, the Principles of European Contract Law, the (European) Draft Common Frame of Reference and the Principles of Asian Contract Law. The PLACL are the product of a working group comprising legal academics from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay and Venezuela. The 111 articles of the instrument deal with problems of general contract law, such as formation, interpretation and performance of contracts, as well as remedies for breach. The book aims to introduce the PLACL to an international audience by putting them in their historical and comparative context, including other transnational harmonisation measures and initiatives. The contributions are authored by drafters of the PLACL and contract law experts from Europe and Latin America.

The purposes of this 2017 edition of the Pocket Civil Code of Louisiana are the same as those of the previous yearly editions but also meant to acquaint the reader with the knowledge of new books or materials helpful in better understanding the essence of a codified law. As all prior editions, the 2017 edition of the Pocket Civil Code is meant to be a `user-friendly¿ tool small by its size and accessible by its bare bone presentation of the Code articles. It is easy to handle, simple to read because one is not distracted by references to cases which tend to be the main focus of attention of lawyers. Thus this presentation is aimed mostly at emphasizing the ranking of legislation as `the¿ imperative and primary source of law in the Louisiana civil law tradition as stated in articles 1 and 2 of the Civil Code. Furthermore, the recent publication of two books will help the reader to go deeper into grasping the purpose of codification and the full meaning of ¿Code articles¿ be they from Louisiana, French, Quebec, Italian¿Civil Codes. In this respect we recommend a Carolina Academic Press publication: Deciphering a Civil Code and the Dictionary of the Civil Code by LexisNexis.

Innerhalb der USA gilt New Orleans seit jeher als die „unamerikanischste“ Stadt, als exotisch und anders, gar als „sozio-geographischer Unfall“. Hier überkreuzen sich nicht nur die Einflüsse verschiedener Kolonialkulturen, sondern auch die Routen des atlantischen Sklavenhandels und der asiatischen Arbeitsmigration und nicht zuletzt die ideellen wie materiellen Transferbewegungen zwischen den beiden Amerikas. Der vorliegende Band macht es sich zur Aufgabe, diese vielfältigen transarealen Zirkulationsprozesse zu analysieren und das Potential New Orleans' zur paradigmatischen Metropole des Globalen Südens auszuloten. Im Fokus stehen verschiedene Formen der kulturellen Kreolisierung, wie sie sich in der Sprache, der Literatur, der Musik, aber auch in Alltagsphänomen wie dem Karneval oder Computerspielen manifestieren. Within the USA, New Orleans has long been considered the ‘un-American’ city, seen as exotic and different, even as a ‘socio-geographical accident’. It is a crossroads not only for the influences of different colonial cultures but also for the routes of the Atlantic slave trade and immigration of Asian workers, and not least for material and non-material transfer between the two Americas. This volume seeks to analyse these manifold transareal circulation processes and to explore New Orleans’s potential as a paradigmatic metropolis of the Global South. The focus is on different forms of creolisation as manifested in language, literature and music, but also in everyday phenomena such as Carnival or computer games.

Solomon Northup lebte als freier Bürger, bis er von Sklavenhändlern verschleppt und an einen Plantagenbesitzer in Louisiana verkauft wurde. Zwölf Jahre erlitt er grausamste Gefangenschaft, bevor er seine Freiheit zurückgewann und zu seiner Familie heimkehrte. Seine Memoiren von 1853 sind nicht nur wertvolles historisches Testament, sondern auch berührendes Zeugnis eines mutigen und unnachgiebigen Mannes. John Ridleys Drehbuch basiert auf seinem wahren Bericht.
