The increasing sophistication of buildings means that most of the work on an average project will be sub-contracted, so sub-contractors now play a crucial role in practically all building projects. This book is a comprehensive examination of the legal principles which affect sub-contractors and explains in detail the key provision of the standard sub-contracts for use with the various JCT forms of the main contract. It examines issues such as design by sub-contractors, variations in sub-contract work, payment and set-off, and sub-contractor's claims for extensions of time and loss and expense.

Property and Money is a simple guide to the investment and financial aspects of commercial property. Putting property into its financial context, it seeks to bridge the world of the surveyor and property developer and the investment and financial markets of the City of London. The book starts from first principles, assuming no pre-existing knowledge. It is thus suitable for students as well as more established property practitioners and its appeal extends to bankers, solicitors, accountants and fund managers whose work brings them into contact with commercial property transactions. This updated and expanded edition includes coverage of: - Principles and pitfalls of property finance - How the property investment market works - Evaluating property and its performance - Understanding property companies and their accounts - How property companies get into trouble - Bank loans, bonds, profit-share agreements, leasebacks and other methods of property finance - The crash of the early 1990's and its consequences. Based on a widely acclaimed series of articles that appeared in Estates Gazette magazine, Property and Money is complemented by an extensive index and glossary and enlivened by Nick Newman's cartoonist-eye view of the property world.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.
