English summary: Christian Thiele examines the liability of tobacco manufacturers for tobacco-related illnesses. He reviews the history of tobacco litigation in the United States and presents a thorough analysis of U.S. procedural and product liability law as it relates to such litigation. Based on this analysis of U.S. law, he explores whether there is a viable legal basis for claims for tobacco-related illnesses under German law. German description: Seit einiger Zeit sorgen in den USA Schadensersatzurteile gegen die Tabakindustrie in Milliardenhohe fur erhebliches Aufsehen. Mittlerweile sind entsprechende Klagen von Rauchern auch in Deutschland anhangig. Vor diesem Hintergrund liefert Christian Thiele eine Darstellung der historischen Entwicklung der Tabakklagen in den USA sowie eine nach Anspruchsgrundlagen geordnete umfassende und systematische Analyse des diesen Klagen zugrunde liegenden US-amerikanischen Haftungs- und Prozessrechts. Daneben untersucht er das deutsche Recht, soweit es fur Anspruche geschadigter Raucher von Bedeutung ist. Die in Deutschland vorherrschende Auffassung, nach der Tabakklagen hierzulande keine Aussicht auf Erfolg haben, unterzieht er anhand der aus der Analyse des US-amerikanischen Rechts gewonnenen Erkenntnisse einer kritischen Uberprufung.

Now, with a brand new 3rd edition, the book returns to "ordinary politics" and the passage of the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act which gave the FDA broad authority to regulate both the manufacture and marketing of tobacco products. Derthick shows our political institutions working as they should, even if slowly, with partisanship and interest group activity playing their part in putting restraints on cigarette smoking.

Your Father's Voice

Letters for Emmy About Life with Jeremy--and Without Him After 9/11

It seemed like just plain bad luck. On September 11, 2001, Jeremy Glick boarded United Flight 93 only because a fire at Newark Airport had prevented him from flying out the day before. That morning, he called his wife, Lyz, to tell her the plane had been hijacked and that he and a group of others were going to storm the cockpit, an effort that doomed Glick and his fellow passengers yet doubtless saved lives on the ground and instantly became known worldwide as a heroic moment of resistance. But Lyz wanted the couple's daughter, Emmy, only three months old when the plane crashed, to learn much more of her father's story than just the ending. Your Father's Voice narrates Lyz's struggle to come to grips with her husband's death in a series of letters from Lyz to Emmy that give a wrenching but clear-eyed account of Lyz's first years without Jeremy. The letters also portray the rebellious but charismatic star athlete who became Lyz's high school sweetheart, a national collegiate judo champion, and finally her husband. We see Lyz's medical ordeal as she tries to bring Emmy into the world, Jeremy's tender nurturing of the premature baby, and the agony of his final telephone call from the ill-fated plane. But it is during the first frantic months after the terrorist attack---as she fends off the media and fights to get the truth about what happened on Flight 93---that Lyz realizes that she and Jeremy are still deeply connected, that his love for her and Emmy endures and teaches. Soon Lyz can write to Emmy that she believes it was destiny, not luck, that put a world-class martial artist like Jeremy on an airplane with other men and women who were also determined to fight back. Through it all, Lyz pragmatically details the challenges of a single parent raising a daughter in the aftermath of horrific tragedy, and urges Emmy to listen for what Lyz can still hear when the wind is right: her father's voice.
