This inter-disciplinary volume focuses on the economic and legal challenges confronting globalisation and the evolution of the global system. "The Law and Economics of Globalisation" discusses the hot topic of globalisation from a wide set of perspectives of law, economics and international political economy. The authors shed new light on the legal, economic and institutional issues raised by globalisation, extending into areas previously considered as national issues. Using a wide set of perspectives from law, economics and political economy, they discuss how the development of the norms, institutions and reach of the global system will be influenced by the domestic and international concerns arising from the increasing integration of countries in the new century. With contributions from lawyers, economists and other experts in the field, this book will be a welcomed addition to academics, students, researchers, and policy-makers who are interested in a comprehensive volume on economic globalisation. It will also appeal to a wider audience, such as executive education courses, as well as business and law schools.
Sir James Matthew Barrie, 1st Baronet, OM (9 May 1860 - 19 June 1937) was a Scottish author and dramatist, best remembered today as the creator of Peter Pan. The child of a family of small-town weavers, he was educated in Scotland. He moved to London, where he developed a career as a novelist and playwright. There he met the Llewelyn Davies boys who inspired him in writing about a baby boy who has magical adventures in Kensington Gardens (included in The Little White Bird), then to write Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up, a "fairy play" about this ageless boy and an ordinary girl named Wendy who have adventures in the fantasy setting of Neverland. This play quickly overshadowed his previous work and although he continued to write successfully, it became his best-known work, credited with popularising the name Wendy, which was very uncommon previously. Barrie unofficially adopted the Davies boys following the deaths of their parents. Before his death, he gave the rights to the Peter Pan works to Great Ormond Street Hospital, which continues to benefit from them. -wikipedia
