"Whilst lip service has often been paid by judges and politicians to the importance of public access to court proceedings and its corollary of free media reporting, a trawl through common law jurisdictions reveals in reality a heavily circumscribed notion of open justice. Outside the United States where the media enjoy a considerable degree of freedom under the First Amendment to publish material relating to legal proceedings, judges and legislators elsewhere in common law jurisdictions have long subordinated media freedom to report and comment upon matters relating to the administration of justice in order to safeguard the fairness of individual proceedings and / or the more general interest of maintaining public confidence in the administration of justice." - from the Introduction.

Die volle Ladung Leben - ein Klassiker der Underground-Literatur Mietskasernen, Arbeitslosigkeit, miese Pubs, viel Alkohol und jede Menge Drogen: das ist der Alltag in Leith, einem heruntergekommenen Vorort von Edinburgh.

Bis zu 20% des globalen Bruttosozialprodukts sollen nach Schätzungen des Internationalen Währungsfonds und der Weltbank aus kriminellen Aktivitäten stammen. Jahrelang recherchierte der britische BBC-Korrespondent Misha Glenny auf den Spuren dieser erschreckenden Tatsache. Dabei führten ihn seine Wege durch die ganze Welt; überall traf er auf Verflechtungen zwischen Politik, Wirtschaft und organisiertem Verbrechen. Der Zusammenbruch des Kommunismus beschleunigte diese Entwicklung z.B. im osteuropäischen Bereich, wo Drogenhandel, Zigarettenschmuggel und Frauenhandel zu einträglichen Geschäften wurden. Instabile Staaten, Globalisierungsprozesse und die wachsenden Migrationsströme sind weitere Faktoren, die zur Ausbreitung des organisierten Verbrechens beigetragen haben. Glenny hat hier ein Buch vorgelegt, das eigentlich zur Pflichtlektüre eines jeden Politikers auf der ganzen Welt gehören sollte. Jede öffentliche Bibliothek sollte diesen Grundbestandstitel neben Roberto Saviano "Gomorra" (BA 2/08) stellen. (1)

Over half a century ago, a leading commentator suggested that Scotland was very unusual in being a country which was, in some sense at least, a nation but in no sense a state. He asked whether something 'so anomalous' could continue to exist in the modern world. The Scottish Question considers how Scotland has retained its sense of self, and how the country has changed against a backdrop of fundamental changes in society, economy, and the role of the state over the course of the union. The Scottish Question has been a shifting mix of linked issues and concerns including national identity; Scotland's constitutional status and structures of government; Scotland's distinctive party politics; and everyday public policy. In this volume, James Mitchell explores how these issues have interacted against a backdrop of these changes. He concludes that while the independence referendum may prove an important event, there can be no definitive answer to the Scottish Question. The Scottish Question offers a fresh interpretation of what has made Scotland distinctive and how this changed over time, drawing on an array of primary and secondary sources. It challenges a number of myths, including how radical Scottish politics has been, and suggests that an oppositional political culture was one of the most distinguishing features of Scottish politics in the twentieth century. A Scottish lobby, consisting of public and private bodies, became adept in making the case for more resources from the Treasury without facing up to some of Scotland's most deep-rooted problems.

As media law becomes more complicated and some of the leading textbooks thicker and larger, this concise guide provides core information without patronizing those with existing knowledge or bamboozling those with little expertise. Suitable for journalists, media workers, and anyone in the cultural or publishing industries, the book engages and addresses the Internet and blogging, social networking, instant messaging, digital multi-media publication and consumption as well as traditional print and broadcast. Each chapter covers substantive 'black letter law' and regulation/ethics, and kept in mind throughout will be the difference in duties and obligations between words and pictures, print and broadcasting. The focus is on the law relating to England & Wales, but with references to key differences to bear in mind in Scotland and Northern Ireland. Chapters start with bullet points, then flesh out the details and summarize pitfalls to avoid. Readers are left in no doubt about liabilities and potential penalties. Anticipating a dynamically changing arena, the text is also backed up by downloadable sound podcasts, videocasts, Internet source links throughout the book text, and a companion website so that any significant updates are immediately accessible direct from the ebook.

Enacted in 2000 and in operation in the UK since 2005, the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act has revealed information which has generated calls for constitutional reform. A massive 'information jurisprudence' has developed through the decisions of the Information Commissioner, the Information Tribunal and the courts. Governments' responses to the war on terror have involved increased resort to claims of national security and accompanying secrecy, but these developments have to exist alongside demands for FOI and transparency. FOI has to balance access to and protection of personal information, and major amendments have been made to the Data Protection Act in order to balance the competing demands of transparency and privacy. This detailed discussion of FOI laws and personal data laws examines the historical development of secrecy, national security and government, and their modern context.
