This paper is not only a useful guide to the serious amateur gardener but is clear, interesting, easy to read and written by a man whose training and experience has been in agriculture, and who is, unusually, an amateur gardener tooThe health of man and livestock is fundamentally dependent on a healthy soil, and a soil will only be healthy if it is biologically active. This in turn, is dependent on a proper understanding of the undeniable laws of the Organic principle, synonymous with the laws of the universe. When sound principles are adopted, we have soils which will yield healthy, sustainable growth, and a proper balance between soil, plant, animal and man The author gives detailed practical advice on how to put these principles into practice. He talks not only of his own experience but also the experience of others. The fundamentals are clearly explained and then merge with the making of garden compost properly, the construction of bins with diagrams and photographs
Making Sense of Search and Seizure Law: A Fourth Amendment Handbook is the best one volume treatment of Fourth Amendment law in print. Competing works are sprawling, and often multi-volume, encyclopedic treatments of the subject. This book is easy to follow and makes sense of the subject in a way that readers can quickly grasp. The primary purpose of the book is to restate existing up-to-date Fourth Amendment law, as announced by the over 430 U.S. Supreme Court decisions on the subject, in an organized and lucid manner, true to its historical origins.The book is divided into two parts: Part I, The Historical Background and Purpose of the Fourth Amendment; and Part II, The Substantive Law of the Fourth Amendment. Part I contains 6 chapters, including an in-depth discussion of the historical background that led to the adoption of the Fourth Amendment [1761-1791] -- not the cursory historical treatment usually found in competing works. These chapters show how this historical background has heavily influenced the development of Fourth Amendment case law, as well as how central the Fourth Amendment is to our country's development and traditions. Part II has an introductory chapter on constitutional construction, and is then divided into three subparts covering 10 chapters: Subpart A, The Standing Requirement; Subpart B, The Unreasonableness Requirement; and Subpart C, Enforcement of the Fourth Amendment. Making Sense of Search and Seizure Law is designed for practicing lawyers and judges for use in their professional work, as well as law professors who teach Fourth Amendment law and wish to place a copy or multiple copies of the book on reserve as outside reading for their students. The general reader should also find it of interest -- particularly the historical chapters.
This book is a critical analysis of several of the most disaster-prone regions in Asia. Its unique focus is on the legal issues in the phase of disaster recovery, the most lengthy and difficult stage of disaster response that follows the conclusion of initial emergency stage of humanitarian aid. In the stage of disaster recovery, the law decides the fate of reconstruction for the individual houses and livelihoods of the disaster-affected people and sets the limit of governmental support for them during the lengthy period of suspension of normal living until full recovery is obtained. Researchers who were participant-observers in the difficult recovery phase after the mega-disasters in Asia analyse the reality of the functions of law which often hinder, rather than foster, efforts to restore disaster victims' lives. The book collects research conducted with an emphasis on empirical approaches to legal sociology, including direct interviews with people affected by the disaster. It offers a holistic approach beyond the traditional sectionalism of legal studies by starting with a historical review and incorporating both spheres of public law and private law, in order to obtain a new perspective that can concurrently achieve disaster risk reductions and human-centered recoveries.
With particular emphasis on the unexplored area of law in the post-disaster recovery phase, this book will attract the attention of students and scholars of disaster studies, legal studies, Asian studies, as well as those who work in the practice of disaster management.

This book is an unprecedented attempt to analyze the role of the law in the global movement for social justice. Case studies in the book are written by leading scholars from both the global South and the global North, and combine empirical research on the ground with innovative sociolegal theory to shed new light on a wide array of topics. Among the issues examined are the role of law and politics in the World Social Forum; the struggle of the anti-sweatshop movement for the protection of international labour rights; and the challenge to neoliberal globalization and liberal human rights raised by grassroots movements in India and indigenous peoples around the world. These and other cases, the editors argue, signal the emergence of a subaltern cosmopolitan law and politics that calls for new social and legal theories capable of capturing the potential and tensions of counter-hegemonic globalization.
