Exploding the myth of de facto segregation arising from private prejudice or the unintended consequences of economic forces, Rothstein describes how the American government systematically imposed residential segregation: with undisguised racial zoning; public housing that purposefully segregated previously mixed communities; subsidies for builders to create whites-only suburbs; tax exemptions for institutions that enforced segregation; and support for violent resistance to African Americans in white neighborhoods. A groundbreaking, “virtually indispensable” study that has already transformed our understanding of twentieth-century urban history (<em>Chicago Daily Observer</em>), <em>The Color of Law</em> forces us to face the obligation to remedy our unconstitutional past.

<b>"A brilliant lawyer...A new and very important book. I would encourage all people...to read!"—President Donald J. Trump</b><br /><br /><b>“Absolutely amazing…. If you care about justice...read this book.”—Sean Hannity</b><br /><br /><b>“Maybe the question isn’t what happened to Alan Dershowitz. Maybe it’s what happened to everyone else.”—<i>Politico</i></b><br /><br />Alan Dershowitz has been called “one of the most prominent and consistent defenders of civil liberties in America” by <i>Politico</i> and “the nation’s most peripatetic civil liberties lawyer and one of its most distinguished defenders of individual rights” by <i>Newsweek</i>. Yet he has come under partisan fire for applying those same principles to Donald Trump during the course of his many appearances in national media outlets as an expert resource on civil liberties and constitutional law.<br /><br /><i>The Case Against Removing Trump</i> seeks to reorient the debate over impeachment to the same standard that Dershowitz has continued to uphold for decades: the law of the United States of America, as established by the Constitution. In the author’s own words:<br /><br />“In the fervor to impeach President Trump, his political enemies have ignored the text of the Constitution. As a civil libertarian who voted against Trump, I remind those who would impeach him not to run roughshod over a document that has protected us all for two and a quarter centuries. In this case against impeachment, I make arguments similar to those I made against the impeachment of President Bill Clinton (and that I would be making had Hillary Clinton been elected and Republicans were seeking to impeach her). Impeachment and removal of a president are not entirely political decisions by Congress. Every member takes an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution sets out specific substantive criteria that MUST be met.<br /><br />I am thrilled to contribute to this important debate and especially that my book will be so quickly available to readers so they can make up their own minds.”

<b>By the one-time federal prosecutor for the Southern District of New York, an important overview of the way our justice system works, and why the rule of law is essential to our society. Using case histories, personal experiences and his own inviting writing and teaching style, Preet Bharara shows the thought process we need to best achieve truth and justice in our daily lives and within our society.</b><br /><br />Preet Bharara has spent much of his life examining our legal system, pushing to make it better, and prosecuting those looking to subvert it. Bharara believes in our system and knows it must be protected, but to do so, we must also acknowledge and allow for flaws in the system and in human nature.<br />     The book is divided into four sections: Inquiry, Accusation, Judgment and Punishment. He shows why each step of this process is crucial to the legal system, but he also shows how we all need to think about each stage of the process to achieve truth and justice in our daily lives.<br />     Bharara uses anecdotes and case histories from his legal career--the successes as well as the failures--to illustrate the realities of the legal system, and the consequences of taking action (and in some cases, not taking action, which can be just as essential when trying to achieve a just result). <br />     Much of what Bharara discusses is inspiring--it gives us hope that rational and objective fact-based thinking, combined with compassion, can truly lead us on a path toward truth and justice. Some of what he writes about will be controversial and cause much discussion. Ultimately, it is a thought-provoking, entertaining book about the need to find the humanity in our legal system--and in our society.

<p>This book examines how cloud-based services challenge the current application of antitrust and privacy laws in the EU and the US. The author looks at the elements of data centers, the way information is organized, and how antitrust, competition and privacy laws in the US and the EU regulate cloud-based services and their market practices. She discusses how platform interoperability can be a driver of incremental innovation and the consequences of not promoting radical innovation. She evaluates applications of predictive analysis based on big data as well as deriving privacy-invasive conduct. She looks at the way antitrust and privacy laws approach consumer protection and how lawmakers can reach more balanced outcomes by understanding the technical background of cloud-based services.</p>

<b>Que devez-vous savoir en tant qu'administrateur ou actionnaire de SRL ? Cet ouvrage thématique vous répondra point par point !</b><br /><br />À la suite de l’adoption du nouveau Code des sociétés et associations (CSA), la SRL remplace la SPRL, mais également un certain nombre de SCRL. Dès le 1er janvier 2020, il n’y aura donc plus de SPRL, mais uniquement des SRL. De même, il ne sera plus question de « gérants » mais d’« administrateurs » et les associés laisseront la place aux actionnaires. Outre ces modifications terminologiques, le cadre légal de la SRL offre beaucoup plus de flexibilité que celui de la SPRL. La SRL devient la forme juridique de référence pour toutes les sociétés à l'exception des grandes sociétés avec un actionnariat important. En conséquence de la disparition du capital, le CSA introduit également de nouvelles obligations pour les administrateurs. Par exemple, ils devront réaliser deux tests nécessitant des données financières prévisionnelles et établir un rapport justificatif avant toute distribution aux actionnaires.<br />Rédigé dans un langage accessible, cet ouvrage subdivisé par thèmes répond aux principales questions que se posent les administrateurs de SRL dans le cadre de la gestion de leur entreprise. Il est également destiné aux professionnels du chiffre qui sont souvent les conseillers de première ligne des entrepreneurs. Ce guide pratique constitue un aide-mémoire pour l'administrateur de SRL qui, avant de prendre certaines décisions importantes, devra recourir aux services de conseillers externes spécialisés.<br /><br /><b>Thème par thème, ce guide pratique répond à vos interrogations dans un langage accessible et constitue un aide-mémoire précieux pour tout administrateur de SRL !</b><br /><br />EXTRAIT<br /><br />1. Qui nomme l’administrateur ou les administrateurs ? <br />La nomination se fait soit à l’occasion de la constitution de la société, soit ultérieurement. Dans cette dernière situation, seule l’assemblée générale est habilitée à nommer l’administrateur ou les administrateurs (art. 5:70, § 2, CSA).<br />En l’absence d’administrateur, s’il y a un blocage au niveau de l’assemblée générale qui empêche la nomination d’un administrateur, un administrateur provisoire pourrait être nommé par décision de justice.<br /><br />2. L’administrateur doit-il être un actionnaire ?<br />L’administrateur ne doit pas nécessairement être un actionnaire. En revanche, il est indispensable que l’administrateur dispose des compétences nécessaires pour administrer la société.<br /><br />À PROPOS DE L'AUTEUR<br /><br />Réviseur d’entreprises honoraire, <b>Jean Pierre Vincke</b> a été chargé de cours dans l’enseignement supérieur et de niveau universitaire pendant de très nombreuses années. Il est l’auteur de différents ouvrages et conférencier en droit des sociétés et des associations, en droit comptable et en analyse financière.

In 2013, when the state of Oklahoma erected a statue of the Ten Commandments on the grounds of the state capitol, a group calling themselves The Satanic Temple applied to erect a statue of Baphomet alongside the Judeo-Christian tablets. Since that time, The Satanic Temple has become a regular voice in national conversations about religious freedom, disestablishment, and government overreach. In addition to petitioning for Baphomet to appear alongside another monument of the Ten Commandments in Arkansas, the group has launched campaigns to include Satanic "nativity scenes" on government property in Florida, Michigan, and Indiana, offer Satanic prayers at a high school football game in Seattle, and create "After School Satan" programs in elementary schools that host Christian extracurricular programs. Since their 2012 founding, The Satanic Temple has established 19 chapters and now claims 100,000 supporters. Is this just a political group perpetuating a series of stunts? Or is it a sincere religious movement?<br /><br /><em>Speak of the Devil</em> is the first book-length study of The Satanic Temple. Joseph Laycock, a scholar of new religious movements, contends that the emergence of "political Satanism" marks a significant moment in American religious history that will have a lasting impact on how Americans frame debates about religious freedom. Though the group gained attention for its strategic deployment of outrage, it claims to have developed beyond politics into a genuine religious movement. Equal parts history and ethnography, <em>Speak of the Devil </em>is Laycock's attempt to take seriously The Satanic Temple's work to redefine religion, the nature of pluralism and religious tolerance, and what "religious freedom" means in America.

<b>NAMED ONE OF THE “100 NOTABLE BOOKS OF THE YEAR” BY <i>THE </i><i>NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW</i></b><br /> <br /><b>“An extraordinary book, I can’t recommend it highly enough.” –Whoopi Goldberg, <i>The View</i></b><br /> <br /><b>By the widely celebrated <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Last Call</i>—the powerful, definitive, and timely account of how the rise of eugenics helped America close the immigration door to “inferiors” in the 1920s.</b><br /><br />A forgotten, dark chapter of American history with implications for the current day, <i>The Guarded Gate </i>tells the story of the scientists who argued that certain nationalities were inherently inferior, providing the intellectual justification for the harshest immigration law in American history. Brandished by the upper class Bostonians and New Yorkers—many of them progressives—who led the anti-immigration movement, the eugenic arguments helped keep hundreds of thousands of Jews, Italians, and other unwanted groups out of the US for more than 40 years.<br /> <br />Over five years in the writing, <i>The Guarded Gate </i>tells the complete story from its beginning in 1895, when Henry Cabot Lodge and other Boston Brahmins launched their anti-immigrant campaign. In 1921, Vice President Calvin Coolidge declared that “biological laws” had proven the inferiority of southern and eastern Europeans; the restrictive law was enacted three years later. In his characteristic style, both lively and authoritative, Okrent brings to life the rich cast of characters from this time, including Lodge’s closest friend, Theodore Roosevelt; Charles Darwin’s first cousin, Francis Galton, the idiosyncratic polymath who gave life to eugenics; the fabulously wealthy and profoundly bigoted Madison Grant, founder of the Bronx Zoo, and his best friend, H. Fairfield Osborn, director of the American Museum of Natural History; Margaret Sanger, who saw eugenics as a sensible adjunct to her birth control campaign; and Maxwell Perkins, the celebrated editor of Hemingway and Fitzgerald. A work of history relevant for today, <i>The Guarded Gate</i> is an important, insightful tale that painstakingly connects the American eugenicists to the rise of Nazism, and shows how their beliefs found fertile soil in the minds of citizens and leaders both here and abroad.
