'For almost all my life, I've been the person you crossed the street to avoid...' Peter Woolf's life of drinking, drug-taking and thieving had begun before most people leave school. Spending most of his adult life in prison made no difference to him: life itself offered him no hope. Today, amazingly, Peter is clean and has not reoffended since a life-changing meeting in 2002 when he came face to face with some of his victims. The Damage Done is a searingly honest and gritty portrayal of a man ensconced in an endless cycle of drugs, violence, prison and depravity who, one Tuesday afternoon in a glass room at Pentonville prison, was forced to confront all that he had destroyed.

Think about the most wretched day of your life. Maybe it was when someone you loved died, or when you were badly hurt in an accident, or a day when you were so terrified you could scarcely bear it. No imagine 4,000 of those days in one big chunk. In 1978, Warren Fellows was convicted in Thailand of heroin trafficking and was sentenced to life imprisonment. The Damage Done is his story of an unthinkable nightmare in a place where sewer rats and cockroaches are the only nutritious food, and where the worst punishment is the khun deo - solitary confinement, Thai style. Fellows was certainly guilty of his crime, but he endured and survived human-rights abuses beyond imagination. This is not his plea for forgiveness, nor his denial of guilt; it is the story of an ordeal that no one would wish on their worst enemy. It is an essential read: heartbreaking, fascinating and impossible to put down.

The Damage Done by Hilary Davidson won the Anthony Award for Best First Novel. Lily Moore, a successful travel writer, fled to Spain to get away from her troubled, drug-addicted younger sister, Claudia. But when Claudia is found dead in a bathtub on the anniversary of their mother's suicide, Lily must return to New York to deal with the aftermath. The situation shifts from tragic to baffling when the body at the morgue turns out to be a stranger's. The dead woman had been using Claudia's identity for months. The real Claudia had vanished, reappearing briefly on the day her impostor died. As Claudia transforms from victim to suspect in the eyes of the police, Lily becomes determined to find her before they do. Is Claudia actually missing, or is she playing an elaborate con game? And who's responsible for the body that was found in the bathtub? An obsessive ex-lover? An emotionally disturbed young man with a rich and powerful father? Or Lily's own former fiancé, who turns out to be more deeply involved with Claudia than he admits? As Lily searches for answers, a shadowy figure stalks her and the danger to her grows. Determined to learn the truth at any cost, she is unprepared for the terrible toll it will take on her and those she loves.

In 1978 Warren Fellows, Paul Hayward and William Sinclair were convicted of heroin trafficking between Thailand and Australia. They were sentenced to life imprisonment in Bangkok's notorious Bang Kwang men's prison, the Bangkok Hilton. For Warren Fellows, it was the beginning of twelve years of hell. The Damage Done takes you behind the bars of a Bangkok prison. A place where sewer rats and cockroaches are the only nutritious food, where autocratic prison guards giggle as they deliver pulverising blows and where the worst punishment by far is the khun deo - solitary confinement, Thai style. Brutally honest and repentant of his initial crime, Warren talks about the decade of his life he lost in leg irons. The Damage Done is a brave and compelling book that poses harrowing questions on the nature of justice.

Non Contractual Liability Arising out of Damage Caused to Another

"Non-contractual liability arising out of damage caused to another" is one of the three main non-contractual obligations dealt with in the DCFR. The law of non-contractual liability arising out of damage caused to another (in the Common Law known as tort law or the law of torts, but in most other jurisdictions referred to as the law of delict) is the area of law which determines whether one who has suffered a damage can on that account demand reparation (in money or in kind) from another with whom there may be no other legal connection than the causation of damage itself. Besides determining the scope and extent of responsibility for dangers of one's own or another's creation, this field of law serves to protect fundamental rights in the private law domain, that is to say horizontally between citizens inter se. Based on pan-European comparative research which annotates the work, this volume presents model rules on liability. Explanatory comments and illustrations amplify the policy decisions involved. During the drafting process, comparative material from over 25 different EU jurisdictions has been taken into account. The work therefore is not only a presentation of a future model for European rules to come but provides also a fairly detailed indication of the present legal situation in the Member States.

The debate about the use of genetically modified organisms is fuelled by the fear of potential hazards of GM farming. Classic tort law already offers remedies should such risks materialize. In some countries, this is enhanced or replaced by alternative redress schemes. This volume compares more than twenty jurisdictions in this respect, provides special analyses from an economic and insurance perspective and also addresses cross-border problems and international law.

The subject of this book is the "Proposal for a Council Directive on Civil Liability for Damage Caused by Waste" which was first presented by the Commission of the European Communities in 1989, then amended in 1991, and which remains under consideration by the Council to this day.The book attempts to look at the Proposal from a comparative point of view, asking what impact the Directive, if implemented as drafted, would have on the law of different Member States of the EC. For this purpose, England (as part of the U. K.) and Germany have been taken as examples. A detailed and comparative outline of the English and German law related to civil liability for waste precedes the examination of the proposed Directive. In this way, the book also contributes to the discussion triggered by the Commission's "Green Paper on Remedying Environmental Damage" of 1993. To the main text of the book, which is written in English, an extensive German summary has been added.Gegenstand dieses Buches ist der von der Kommission der Europäischen Gemeinschaften (jetzt: der Europäischen Union)im Jahre 1989 vorgelegte "Vorschlag für eine Richtlinie des Rates über die zivilrechtliche Haftung für die durch Abfälle verursachten Schäden", der im Jahre 1991 mit wesentlichen Änderungen versehen wurde und dem Rat nach wie vor zur Prüfung vorliegt.Das Buch beleuchtet den Richtlinienvorschlag rechtsvergleichend, d. h. unter der Fragestellung, wie sich die Richtlinie auf die Rechtslage in verschiedenen Mitgliedsstaaten der EU auswirken würde, wenn sie in ihrer derzeitigen Fassung in Kraft träte. Als Beispiele dienen England (als Teil des Vereinigten Königreiches) und Deutschland. Eine detaillierte und rechtsvergleichende Darstellung des englischen und deutschen Rechts in bezug auf die zivilrechtliche Haftung für Abfälle ist daher der Untersuchung des Richtlinienvorschlages vorangestellt. Auf diese Weise leistet das Buch auch einen Beitrag zu der Diskussion, die das im Jahre 1993 von der Europäischen Kommission vorgelegte "Grünbuch über die Sanierung von Umweltschäden" ausgelöst hat. Dem in englischer Sprache verfaßten Haupttext wurde eine ausführliche deutsche Zusammenfassung beigegeben.
