The ruby parure of Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mary of Denmark is a delicate piece of the highest craftsmanship dating back to the early nineteenth century: it was made for Désirée Clary, wife of Marshal of the Empire Jean Baptiste Bernadotte, to mark the imperial coronation of Napoleon Bonaparte in 1804. In 2002, the ruby parure was finally passed to Crown Prince Frederik and his future wife, Crown Princess Mary of Denmark. In 2010 Crown Princess Mary decided to hand over the precious set to the goldsmiths Dulong Fine Jewelery in Copenhagen. In one of the most comprehensive restoration projects of the century, the set was carefully restored and modernised. The possibilities in being able to customise the parure were now commensurate to the demands of a modern crown princess known for her stylish appearance. The reworking was accompanied and documented in detail by jewellery expert Nina Hald. With photographs by Sarah Lindbæk, the book Royal Rubies provides a fascinating insight into the restoration process of the new set.

Before the United States was involved in World War II, many Jews suffered at the hands of Nazi Germany all in the name of genocide and so called “supremacy.” This is a tale of a Christian Ukrainian couple who took in Jewish children not only to harbor them, but to make them their own. The small village of Kanev lies on the outskirts of Kiev, Ukraine’s capitol, near the banks of the Dnieper River; this is the setting for The Royal Ruby. The inhumanity and hardships that they face could tear their makeshift family apart. If it wasn’t for love, they would have nothing.

The problem approach featured in Problems and Cases on Secured Transactions thoroughly engages students with imaginative scenarios, presenting the material as easily accessible and as manageable as possible without avoiding the intricacies of secured transactions. Students come to appreciate that the principal resource for the course is UCC Article 9 itself. While the casebook is an essential tool for study, the law is found in the Code. Problems and Cases on Secured Transactions is carefully designed for an introductory mainstream course, not for an advanced course or seminar. The material is presented as completely comprehensible, even enjoyable rather than an arcane science than only an insider can understand. Cases are heavily edited, and liberal editorial note help express the vibrancy of true-life situations. A good mix of short and long problems gives each lesson a comprehensive linear flow while keeping students focused. A progressive mix of problems helps students see the common elements, as rules and principals learned in a simpler setting can readily be applied to more complex transactions. Earlier problems lean more heavily, though not exclusively, on the individual and consumer-borrower situations. As the lessons advance, the mix of materials progressively includes more small-business and large-business transactions. The purchase of this Kindle edition does not entitle you to receive 1-year FREE digital access to the corresponding Examples & Explanations in your course area. In order to receive access to the hypothetical questions complemented by detailed explanations found in the Examples & Explanations, you will need to purchase a new print casebook.
