Il testo è una raccolta di tematiche trattate all’interno del corso: nozioni di diritto penale, tecniche di sopralluogo, stupefacenti, cenni storici, tecniche di indagine e analisi medico-legali. Gli autori vorrebbero dare un quadro generale sul ruolo e l'importanza del biologo in ambito forense. The authors, students of Forensic Sciences class of Bologna University and their Professor, have developed the ﬁrst Italian book about forensic topics. The book is a collection of issues covered during the course: notions of criminal law, inspection and investigation techniques, drugs, history and forensic analysis. They would like to give an overview about the role and the importance of biologists in forensic sciences.
Since publication of the original edition in 1996, this book has established itself as an essential text for occupational therapists. It offers an understanding of the law relating to their practice, but is written to be accessible for those who have no prior legal knowledge. The text provides valuable information for occupational therapists employed in health and social services, as well as the law relevant to private practitioners. The book includes chapters on all the main client groups and presents the relevant specialist law. Students and teachers of occupational therapy will find the chapters on professional registration, education, training and research of particular interest. The third edition has been substantially revised to cover significant changes in legislation since the previous version. There is also a brand new chapter on the subject of death and dying. Legal Aspects of Occupational Therapy remains a key resource for the occupational therapy student, practitioner and service manager.

"An eloquent plea for two needed emphases: more humane doctor-patient relations, and greater patient involvement in the struggle with disease."—Melvin Konner.
In an age of mass digitization, does copyright law need to change, and if so, how? This thought-provoking book considers whether the purposes, activities and effects of mass digitization are consistent with copyright law and principles, arguing for a comprehensive regulatory framework for the use of works in mass digital libraries and archives.
It was the classical task of legal rhetoric to make law both seen and understood. These conjoint goals came to be separated and opposed in modernity and a degree of blindness ensued. Legal reason was increasingly deemed to be a purely textual enterprise. Against this constraint and in furtherance of an incipient visual turn in legal studies, Genealogies of Legal Vision seeks to revive the classical ars iuris and to this end traces the history of regimes of visual control. Law always relied in significant measure upon the use of visual representations, upon pictures, architecture, costume and statuary to convey authority and sovereign norm. Military, religious, administrative and legal insignia found juridical codification and expression in collections of signs of office, in heraldic codes, in genealogical devices, and then finally in the juridical invention in the mid-sixteenth century of the legal emblem book. Genealogies of Legal Vision traces the complex lineage of the legal emblem and argues that the mens emblematica of the humanist lawyers was the inauguration of a visiocratic regime that continues into the multiple new technologies and novel media of contemporary governance. Bringing together leading experts on the history and art of legal emblems this collection provides a ground-breaking account of the long relationship between visibility, meaning and normativity.
The writings of Carl Schmitt are now indissociable from both an historical period and a contemporary moment. He will forever be remembered for his association with the National Socialists of 1930s Germany, and as the figure whose writings on sovereignty, politics, and the law provided justification for authoritarian, decisional states. Yet at the same time, the post-September 11th 2001 world is one in which a wide range of scholars have increasingly turned to Schmitt to understand a world of "with us or against us" Manichaeism, spaces of exception which seem to be placed outside the law by legal mechanisms themselves, and the contestation of a uni-polar, post-1989 world. This attention marks out Schmitt as one of the foremost emerging theorists in critical theory and assures his work a large and growing audience. This work brings together geographers, and Schmitt experts who are attuned to the spatial dimensions of his work, to discuss his 1950 work The Nomos of the Earth in the International Law of the Jus Publicum Europaeum. Explaining the growing audience for Schmitt’s work, a broad range of contributors also examine the Nomos in relation to broader debates about enmity and war, the production of space, the work of Michel Foucault and Giorgio Agamben, and the recuperability of such an intellect tainted by its anti-Semitism and links to the Nazi party. This work will be of great interest to researchers in political theory, socio-legal studies, geopolitics and critical IR theory
