Explanation of the Book:

There was a time I would not have lit a fire, if there wasn’t a man at home to tend to it. That worry wore off long ago, out of need. —Capanna One friend and then another commits suicide. Her partner has a heart attack. She comes face-to-face with a wolf in the wild. Her rescue dog bites her in the face. Her past intrudes in ways it can’t be changed. Life is messy, and what, really, do any of us know about how to live it? Nearly Fifty is a collection of essays, written in real time, through which Paloma A. Capanna explores how she tried to make thoughtful decisions in the midst of chaos in order to keep moving forward in the pulse of her life. It is the story of everyone who faces decisions that can only be made based upon the available information at the time and the bits of wisdom collected over time. Even when there is no perfect solution, she illustrates the importance of making a choice with which one can go on living. “In Paloma’s questions lives wisdom. In her answers, wonder and compassion. This is a beautiful, honest, direct book. Open it and you will find yourself in a company of someone who is brave to live in the open.” – Ilya Kaminsky, Poet, author of Dancing in Odessa, Musica Humana, and Deaf Nation, winner of the Pushcart Prize “If you are looking for insight into a life well-lived, then you have come to the right place. Paloma brings you into her world with her eloquent speech and does not let you linger lest you might be bored. You don’t want to miss out on any of her grand tidbits.” – Larry Jaffe, Poet, author of Lying Half-Naked in the Doorway, founder of Poets Beyond Borders, and International Readings Coordinator for the United Nations “Dialogue Through Poetry Week”

Taming the Dragons

Available:
Release: 2001-08-01
Editor: iUniverse
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

A good manager in the corporate climate of the post-internet boom has to be shrewd, competitive, observant, and tough as nails. The paradox is that at the same time he or she is expected to be ultimately ethical, compassionate, likable and respectable. The paradox is similar to mythology of dragons—in the Western world, they are demonic nemesis of the oldest heroes of literature—Beowulf and St. George. In the Eastern world, they are revered as beautiful, wise protectors. The apparent paradox is a fantastic illustration of how businesspeople react to the unpredictable and often chaotic forces that steer businesses and careers toward failure or success. Looking at the same situation, one person sees danger where another sees opportunity. The corporate world has always been full of dragons. How you deal with them (and how they deal with YOU)often depends more on your point of view than on the weapons you hold. This book contains 50 essays about seeing ordinary business situations from an extra-ordinary point of view.

Essays on Private Law
Author: Ian F.G. Baxter
Pages: 218
ISBN: 9781442633360
Available:
Release: 1966-12-15
Editor: University of Toronto Press
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

This book contains a series of essays on conflict laws, including jurisdiction of the courts, choice of law, renvoi, property, recognition of family status, and recognition of foreign corporations. It is not a text-book, but an analysis and criticism of existing principles with recommendations for reform and for a different approach to the subject. In general, an approach is advocated that will be simpler and less abstract and doctrinaire than at present, and better integrated with the ordinary laws of the forum. The recommendations made could be thought of as principles on which to build a reform of conflict of laws or a model code. The first two chapters deal with jurisdiction and choice of law, two distinct topics, with different considerations of policy, which have not always been kept distinct by judges and text writers. The third chapter considers certain questions of legal interpretation, mainly in the construction of money obligations expressed in a foreign currency. This shows a working out of the problems of contract analysis and interpretation which are dealt with more generally in other chapters. Another chapter discusses property law, a branch of the law which has been influenced, historically, by the doctrine of situs, and the recognition of status in family law and in corporation law. The concluding chapter draws together the main results of the preceding discussion and states from basic principles, one of which is that there is a need “for greater unity between the conflict rules and the general law,” and for “allowing, where appropriate, the influence of legal systems other than that of the forum.” Professor Baxter’s discussion clearly shows that the complexity of current legal theory can lead to unjust rulings in the courts, and his case for greater simplification is argued compellingly.
