Dangerous Designs Book Excerpt:

In late-1990s Britain, the salwaar-kameez or 'Punjabi suit' emerged as a high-fashion garment. Popular both on the catwalk and on the street, it made front-page news when worn by Diana, Princess of Wales and by Cherie Booth, the wife of UK Prime Minister Tony Blair. In her ethnography of the local and global design economies established by Asian women fashion entrepreneurs, Parminder Bhachu focuses on the transformation of the salwaar-kameez from negatively coded 'ethnic clothing' to a global garment fashionable both on the margins and in the mainstream. Exploring the design and sewing businesses, shops and street fashions in which this revolution has taken place, she shows how the salwaar-kameez is today at the heart of new economic micro-markets which themselves represent complex, powerfully coded means of cultural dialogue and racial politics. The innovative designs of second-generation British Asian women are drawn from characteristically improvisational migrant cultural codes. Through their hybrid designs and creation of new aesthetics, these women cross cultural boundaries, battling with racism and redefining both Asian and British identities. At the same time, their border-crossing commercial entrepreneurship produces new diaspora economies which give them control over many economic, aesthetic, cultural and technological resources. In this way, the processes of global capitalism are gendered, racialized and localized through the interventions of diasporic women from the margins.

Drawing is her world...but when her new pencil comes alive, it's his world too. Her...Storey Dalton is seventeen and now boyfriendless after being dumped via Facebook. Drawing is her escape. It's like as soon as she gets down one image, a dozen more are pressing in on her. Then she realizes her pictures are almost drawing themselves...or is it that her new pencil is alive? Him...Eric Jordan is a new Ranger and the only son of the Councilman to his world. He's crossed the veil between dimensions to retrieve a lost stylus. But Storey is already experimenting with her new pencil and what her drawings can do - like open portals. It... The stylus is a soul-bound intelligence from Eric's dimension on Earth and uses Storey's unsuspecting mind to seek its way home, giving her an unbelievable power. She unwittingly opens a third dimension, one that held a dangerous predatory species banished from Eric's world centuries ago, releasing these animals into both dimensions. Them... Once in Eric's homeland, Storey is blamed for the calamity sentenced to death. When she escapes, Eric is ordered to bring her back or face that same death penalty. With nothing to lose, can they work together across dimensions to save both their worlds?

Products Liability Law Book Excerpt:

Products Liability Law, Second Edition, by prolific tort scholar Mark Geistfeld, represents the “next generation” of casebooks on products liability. Earlier texts focused on the relative merits of strict liability and negligence, embodied in the apparently competing liability frameworks of the consumer expectations test in the Restatement (Second) of Torts and the risk-utility test in the Restatement (Third) of Torts. The majority of courts, however, have incorporated the risk-utility test into the framework of consumer expectations. By providing balanced coverage of both consumer expectations and the risk-utility test, the casebook keeps pace with ongoing developments in the case law and moves beyond the battles that largely defined products liability in the twentieth century. In addition to teaching students how liability rules protect consumer expectations via comprehensive application of the risk-utility test, this innovative casebook underscores the importance of doctrinal history, the psychology of evaluating product risks, and the role of products liability in the modern regulatory state. Students will learn how courts have applied established doctrines to novel problems ranging from the relevance of scientific evidence in toxic-tort cases to the distribution of defective products on the Amazon online marketplace. To further illustrate this dynamic, the casebook has twenty-nine problems with associated analysis involving the liability issues likely to be raised by the emerging technology of autonomous vehicles. Finally, the casebook reinforces students’ knowledge of fundamental tort principles while developing specialized expertise and a deeper understanding of the torts process. New to the Second Edition: A dozen new main cases updating older case law, providing coverage of new issues not addressed in the First Edition, and/or improving upon the analysis provided by the associated case in the First Edition Retention of the majority of main cases from the first edition, with revisions to the ensuing notes incorporating relevant case law developments A reorganized and updated chapter covering the controversy over the relative merits of the consumer expectations and risk-utility tests Comprehensive discussion of the tort version of the implied warranty—the genesis of the consumer expectations test—and its relation to product malfunctions and the risk-utility test A new chapter addressing the existence of the tort duty and identifying the difference between patent dangers and patent defects Reorganization of the chapter on factual causation, emphasizing the continuity of evidentiary problems running across different types of cases, ranging from the heeding presumption in warning cases, to market-share liability, to proof of both general and specific causation in toxic-tort cases Professors and students will benefit from: Classroom-tested materials taught for over 20 years by an award-winning professor Interesting cases that illustrate both the traditional and contemporary character of products liability litigation; cases are followed by extensive notes Each chapter addressing doctrinal issues concludes with problems on autonomous vehicles. The full set of 29 problems provides students with the necessary background for understanding liability issues posed by this emerging technology. Each problem is followed by the author’s analysis of the associated issues, cross-referenced to the relevant casebook material.
