Dieses Buch analysiert den grundrechtlichen Schutzbereich der Garantien der Meinungsäußerungsfreiheit in den Grundrechtskatalogen der EMRK, des Grundgesetzes und der Grundrechtecharta der EU. Das Werk untersucht, inwieweit Hassreden und vergleichbare demokratiefeindliche Äußerungen vom Schutzbereich der Meinungsäußerungsfreiheit umfasst sind. Die Autorin setzt sich mit der zu diesen Äußerungen ergangenen Rechtsprechung der zuständigen Gerichte auseinander. Sie kommt über ausführliche Auslegungserwägungen zu den relevanten Bestimmungen zum Ergebnis, dass die Äußerungen, auch wenn sie einen Grundrechtsmissbrauch darstellen, im Schutzbereich der Meinungsäußerungsfreiheit liegen und ihr Verbot einen rechtfertigungsbedürftigen Eingriff in das Grundrecht darstellt. Diese Schlussfolgerung wird mit der Feststellung verbunden, dass die Anforderungen an die Rechtfertigung eines solchen Eingriffs wegen der in diesen Fällen typischerweise vorliegenden Interessenlage regelmäßig erfüllt werden können.

Carlo Collodi, eigentlich Carlo Lorenzini (1826-1890) war ein italienischer Schriftsteller und Journalist. Meister Seppel, der Marionettenschnitzer, kommt aus dem Staunen nicht mehr heraus: die Puppe, die er gerade geschnitzt hat, ist lebendig! Er tauft sie Pinocchio und schnell zeigt sich: Pinocchio ist eigensinnig und rücksichtslos. Um ihm ein Schulbuch besorgen zu können, verkauft Meister Seppel seine einzige Jacke. Auf dem Weg zur Schule fühlt sich Pinocchio aber magisch von einem Puppentheater angezogen. Das ist der Anfang eines bewegten Abenteuers, in dem sich Pinocchio durch seinen Eigensinn immer wieder in große Probleme bringt. Trotzdem erfüllt sich am Ende Pinocchios großer Wunsch - ein richtiger Junge aus Fleisch und Blut zu werden.

Es gibt f r das Hochdeutsche keine derart eing ngige am sant zu studierende Grammatik wie dieses sympathische Buch, das witzig und gescheit ist, durch seine plastischen und drastischen Beispiele Vergn gen bereitet und selbst dem mit der bayerischen Sprache bestens Vertrauten noch eine Menge beibringt. Die Bairische Grammatik erschien erstmals 1975 und wurde rasch zum Standardwerk f r alle, die sich mit der bairischen Sprache befassen. Sie ist in allen bisherigen Ausgaben vergriffen. In der vorliegenden Neuausgabe sind die Korrekturen aus einem Handexemplar des Autors eingearbeitet. ... ein h chst ernsthaftes und nur beim genaueren Studium auch schalkhaftes Unternehmen, aus dem man lernen kann, da Bairisch mindestens so schwer ist wie Latein. Die Zeit Man wei nicht, was man mehr loben soll: die strenge, wissenschaftliche Aufbereitung, die dennoch die Lesbarkeit nicht beeintr chtigt, oder die Akribie, den Flei und die Sachkenntnis, mit der der Verfasser zu Werke gegangen ist.

Educationalists suggest an inductive approach to education, where we go from the experience of the students to the underlying principles, provides best results. The objective of this book is to provide people at school or college with realistic examples of dilemmas they will face in the world of work, or when looking for work. This may be as part of their PSHE development. The book also aims to provide material which can be used by people working on their own. Young people need to have transferable skills and some of these can be obtained by looking at the ways in which businesses approach them. It is therefore worthwhile trying to understand these approaches, and to see why some are effective while others are totally misplaced.

The mistreatment of diverse older people in varying ways is categorized in many societies as “elder abuse and neglect,” yet this concept has not been subjected to rigorous critical inquiry. Instead, it has most often represented the interests of professionals, academics, and governments, while policy makers and researchers frequently disregard the complexity of issues that fall under the designation. The first comprehensive, scholarly critique of the topic, Contesting Elder Abuse and Neglect is an important, much-needed contribution that encourages new thinking, policies, and action regarding the treatment of older people.

Fowler's Concise Dictionary of Modern English Usage is an invaluable reference work that offers the best advice on English usage. Known in previous editions as the 'Pocket Fowler', this third edition is a descendant of the original 1926 edition of A Dictionary of Modern English Usage by Henry Fowler. Based on the unrivalled evidence and research of the Oxford Dictionaries Programme, the new edition answers your most frequently asked questions about language use. Should you use a split infinitive, or a preposition at the end of a sentence? Is it infer or imply? Who or whom? What are the main differences between British and American English? Over 4,000 entries offer clear recommendations on issues of grammar, pronunciation, spelling, confusable words, and written style. Real examples are drawn from OUP's vast database of classic and contemporary literary sources, newspapers and magazines, and the Internet. Jeremy Butterfield has judiciously revised the text to reflect the English usage practices and concerns of the 21st century. More than 200 new entries have been added, including increased coverage of recently emerged sensitive terms (e.g. disabled/handicapped). The existing entries have been thoroughly revised to update any out-of-date language and to ensure that the entries reflect current usage. This dictionary is an indispensable companion for anyone who wants to use the English language effectively.
