143 LEPATNER, BARRY B. Too Big To Fall: America's Failing Infrastructure And The Way Forward.
Foster Publishing in association with University Press of New England, Hanover and London: 2010. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
A comprehensive overview of the shocking state of our nation's infrastructure and what must be done to fix it. In August 2007, the I-35W Bridge in Minneapolis collapsed, killing 13 people and injuring 145 others. Investigations following the tragedy revealed that it was not an unavoidable accident, but one that could have been prevented—and one that threatens to be repeated at many thousands of bridges located across the nation. Already more than 50 percent of our bridges are past their intended lifespan. Using the I-35W Bridge as a starting point, LePatner chronicles the problems that led to that catastrophe—poor bridge design, shoddy maintenance, ignored expert recommendations for repair, and misallocated funding—and then explores the responses to the tragedy, including the NTSB document which failed to report the full story to our nation. From here LePatner evaluates what the I-35W Bridge collapse means for the country as a whole—outlining the possibility of a nationwide infrastructure breakdown. He exposes government failure on a national as well as state level, uncovering how our nation's transportation system prioritizes funding for new projects over maintenance funding for aging infrastructure. He explains the imperatives for why we must maintain an effective infrastructure system, and how it plays a central role in supporting both our nation's economic strength and our national security. Written both for those who can effect change and for those who must demand it, Too Big to Fall presents an eye-opening critique of a bureaucratic system that has allowed political best interests to trump those of the American people. Barry B. LePatner is the founder of LePatner & Associates LLP, which serves as legal and business advisor to corporations, institutions, and developers. He is the author of Broken Buildings, Busted Budgets: How to Fix America's Trillion-Dollar Construction Industry. "Barry LePatner makes an airtight case in Too Big to Fall that our nation's road infrastructure is becoming a liability, a drag on our productivity rather than an asset. His heavily researched book aptly warns us that if our nation's infrastructure continues to fail, so too does America…LePatner's ultimate optimism and professional experiences lead us to a solution that we need to take to heart."—Dan McNichol, bestselling author of The Big Dig, The Roads That Built America, and Asphalt in America; columnist for Rebuilding America's Infrastructure "Barry LePatner has emerged as one of the nation's leading advocates for infrastructure reform. Too Big to Fall provides a thought-provoking examination of America's infrastructure dilemma. It is eye-opening and sobering. Hopefully this work will resonate with those in authority to heighten their sense of urgency to aggressively address this threat to our nation's future."—Gary La Point, Assistant Professor, Supply Chain Management, Syracuse University

148 MA, DEBIN & VAN ZANDEN, JAN LUITEN. Law And Long-term Economic Change: A Eurasian Perspective. Edited By Debin Ma And Jan Luiten Van Zanden
Stanford University Press, Palo Alto: 2011. Stanford Economics and Finance Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Recently, a growing body of work on "law and finance" and "legal origins" has highlighted the role of formal legal institutions in shaping financial institutions. However, these writings have focused largely on Europe, neglecting important non-Western traditions that prevail in a large part of the world. Law and Long-Term Economic Change brings together a group of leading scholars from economics, economic history, law, and area studies to develop a unique, global and, long-term perspective on the linkage between law and economic change. Covering the regions of Western Europe, East and South Asia, and the Middle East, the chapters explore major themes regarding the nature and evolution of different legal regimes; their relationship with the state or organized religion; the definition and interpretation of ownership and property rights; the functioning of courts, and other mechanisms for dispute resolution and contract enforcement; and the complex dynamics of legal transplantations through processes such as colonization. The text makes clear that the development of legal traditions and institutions—as embodiments of cultural values and norms—exerts a strong effect on long-term economic change. And it demonstrates that a good understanding of legal origins around the world enriches any debate about Great Divergence in the early modern era, as well as development and underdevelopment in 19th-20th century Eurasia. Debin Ma is a faculty member of the Economic History Department at the London School of Economics. Jan Luiten van Zanden is Professor of Global Economic History at Utrecht University and President of the International Economic History Association. "This well conceived volume brings together authors with a wealth of expertise in the fields of economic and institutional history. Through fascinating country narratives and comparative analyses, the book brings non-European legal systems and historical experience into the debate on the relationship between law and economic development."—Curtis J. Milhaupt, Columbia Law School "This outstanding collection of essays combines economic and legal history in a comparative examination of the law's impact on economic growth. With essays that range across continents and centuries to compare common problems (including chapters on rarely studied issues in Asian and Islamic countries), this book is an intellectual feast for a wide range of social scientists."—John N. Drobak, Washington University School of Law

The very essence of communism, as envisaged by Mafrx and Engels, is contained in the manifesto. First published in 1848, when its authors were only thirty and twenty-eight years old respectively, it set alight the intellectuals and revolutionaries of Europe, and has been the inspiration and foundation for modern Russia, China and even the British Welfare State. This edition reproduces several of the authors' own prefaces to various editions. A J P Taylor's introduction charts the progress of the Manifesto from persecuted obscurity to global prominence and examines the relevance of its nineteenth-century ideas to the realities of modern politics. Translated into English from the German by Samuel Moore.
