Challenging theoretical concepts, this study of translation extends the field of inquiry to cross-cultural factors and ideology. The corpus spans across languages and literatures, highlighting themes across multimodal genres. It accounts for the universalistic view of interjections, and conversely their linguistic specificity as identity markers.

This book is a practical guide to the international, EC and UK law applying to the various uses of nuclear energy and radioactive substances. The first edition was produced in 1997, and given the renaissance of interest in nuclear power in the UK and worldwide, this new, updated and much expanded edition is timely. It will cover the law relating to the permitting and operation of nuclear power stations, the decommissioning and clean-up of former nuclear facilities, radiological protection, the management of radioactive waste and spent fuel, liability and insurance, and the security and transport of radioactive materials. Readers will find a clear framework explaining the development and application of nuclear law, and how domestic law is based on and influenced by international and European requirements and by its historical context. In the commercial context, the chapters dealing specifically with new build and with decommissioning will be vital reading.

Originally published in Russian, this book is the most comprehensive treatise to appear on the subject of the law of the sea. It covers all expanses of sea which comprise the World Ocean and it offers new details on the Russian Arctic, the Caspian Sea, the Black Sea Straits, the Gulf of Finland, and the Russian continental shelf. In a number of instances, the book criticizes Russian legislation for the failure to adequately implement the 1982 Convention on the Law of the Sea, and the law of the sea generally for the failure to satisfactorily address the threats and challenges of the 21st century. The book gives more attention to the activities of international organizations in maritime legal matters than one normally encounters in Western works on the subject. Furthermore, as Russia plays a central and influential role in world maritime policy, a book that specifically deals with Russian approaches in this field cannot fail to be of importance to anyone interested in the law of the sea.

The road to global security," writes Jeremy Rifkin, "lies in lessening our dependence on Middle East oil and making sure that all people on Earth have access to the energy they need to sustain life. Weaning the world off oil and turning it toward hydrogen is a promissory note for a safer world." Rifkin's international bestseller The Hydrogen Economy presents the clearest, most comprehensive case for moving ourselves away from the destructive and waning years of the oil era toward a new kind of energy regime. Hydrogen-one of the most abundant substances in the universe-holds the key, Rifkin argues, to a cleaner, safer, and more sustainable world.

There is a lot of talk in the United States today about energy independence, specifically the desire for America to get out of the Middle East and to stop relying on its oil. But it takes courage. In NOIS2E, author Charlie Pedersen takes the challenge and assembles both a worldview and an action plan. Unveiling the forces that have secured the United States to the status quo, he shows there is an opportunity to change the world and shake off the economic chains of oil dependency, all while moving Water and Energy towards the goal of cost reduction and the elimination of drought and famine in the 21st century. NOIS2E discusses the current US strategy, which seems to make oil dependency so painful that anything will be done to get more oil, even war. It looks at current energy innovation and alternatives and recognizes that the United States can exploit bene?ts and invest in delivery and solutions for the water and energy crises, not by super innovation but by changing the mix and application of fuels and the efficiency of energy, particularly in transportation. Through a fictionalized narrative, NOIS2E takes over the President’s persona and travels on a world quest through Mexico, Canada. China, Russia, the Middle East, Australia, and more to show you the expanding opportunities where clean supply is/will exceed demand. The formula for change. This will transform the 21st Century for the USA and the world, and shows it’s within our grasp, and without war.
