In The Oxford Introductions to U.S. Law: Income Tax Law, Edward McCaffery presents an accessible introduction to the major topics in the field of federal income taxation, such as income, deductions, and recognition of gains and losses. After discussing central rules and doctrines individually, Edward McCaffery offers a very sophisticated yet clear explanation of the interplay among them, carefully describing how they work together to carry out the policy goals of the U.S. tax system. Professor McCaffery describes, for example, how the current income tax in the United States has increasingly become a wage tax that favors those with capital rather than those whose money comes from labor. In explaining the consequences of tax policy on individuals, he also considers important possible alternatives for income taxation in the U.S. The Oxford Introductions to U.S. Law: Income Tax Law sets forth the 'who,' 'what,' 'when,' and 'why' of income tax law and describes the essential concepts of the field in a clear and concise manner that helps students and non-experts increase their understanding of the policies behind modern tax law and the ways in which these policies affect different types of individuals.

The rise of Web 2.0 has pushed the amateur to the forefront of public discourse, public policy and media scholarship. Typically non-salaried, non-specialist and untrained in media production, amateur producers are now seen as key drivers of the creative economy. But how do the activities of citizen journalists, fan fiction writers and bedroom musicians connect with longer traditions of extra-institutional media production? This edited collection provides a much-needed interdisciplinary contextualisation of amateur media before and after Web 2.0. Surveying the institutional, economic and legal construction of the amateur media producer via a series of case studies, it features contributions from experts in the fields of law, economics and media studies based in the UK, Europe and Singapore. Each section of the book contains a detailed case study on a selected topic, followed by two further pieces providing additional analysis and commentary. Using an extraordinary array of case studies and examples, from YouTube to online games, from subtitling communities to reality TV, the book is neither a celebration of amateur production nor a denunciation of the demise of professional media industries. Rather, this book presents a critical dialogue across law and the humanities, exploring the dynamic tensions and interdependencies between amateur and professional creative production. This book will appeal to both academics and students of intellectual property and media law, as well as to scholars and students of economics, media, cultural and internet studies.

Längengrad erzählt die Geschichte des unbekannten schottischen Uhrmachers John Harrison, dem es im 18. Jahrhundert gelang, die Schiffahrt durch die Lösung des Längengrad-Problems auf neuen Kurs zu bringen. Bislang hatten sich die Seefahrer bei ihrer Navigation am Verlauf der Breitengrade orientiert. Eine Methode mit fatalen Folgen: Seefahrer und Fracht wurden leichte Beute von Seeräubern, die den Handelsschiffen auf den Breitengraden auflauerten. Zudem irrten die Schiffe fast orientierungslos auf den Weltmeeren umher und erreichten ihre Zielorte wenn überhaupt — eher zufällig. Die ohnehin langen Schiffahrten dauerten noch länger. Der gefürchtete Skorbut raffte nicht selten die Mannschaft dahin. Mit einem Wort: Handelsschiffahrt war ein Unternehmen auf Leben und Tod. Längengrad rekonstruiert die Geschichte einer wissenschaftlichen Gralssuche, eines Davidskampfes gegen die großen Astronomen jener Zeit. Galileo Galilei, Sir Isaac Newton und Edmond Halley suchten die Lösung des damals schwierigsten nautischen Problems in den Gestirnen. Anders John Harrison: 40 Jahre lang arbeitete er besessen an seiner Idee eines perfekten Chronometers. Trotz der Intrigen seiner Rivalen setzte sich Harrisons geniale Erfindung letztendlich durch. Schon der berühmte Seefahrer James Cook ließ sich auf seinen Expeditionen von Harrisons Uhr leiten und nannte sie seinen »zuverlässigsten Freund« und »nie versagenden Führer«.

Der Klassiker unter den Biochemie-Lehrbüchern – seit Jahrzehnten international bewährt, von Lehrenden und Lernenden hoch geschätzt und jetzt wieder auf dem neuesten Stand Diese vollständig überarbeitete Neuauflage weist all die innovativen konzeptionell-didaktischen und herausragenden gestalterischen Eigenschaften auf, die schon die früheren Auflagen zu Bestsellern gemacht haben – die außerordentlich klare und präzise Art der Darstellung, die Aktualität, die ausgefeilte Didaktik, die Verständlichkeit. In gewohnt verständlicher Form greift das Buch auch jüngste Fortschritte auf dem Gebiet der Biochemie auf. Es veranschaulicht den „Kern“ der Biochemie – die Schlüsselkonzepte und Grundprinzipien –, schlägt Brücken zwischen verschiedenen Befunden und Untersuchungsansätzen und offenbart damit letztlich sowohl die molekulare Logik des Lebendigen als auch die Bedeutung der Biochemie für die Medizin. Studierende und Lehrende werden unter anderem folgende Neuerungen und Verbesserungen in der 7. Auflage zu schätzen wissen: - erweiterte Darstellung der Genregulation bei Prokaryoten (Kapitel 31) und Eukaryoten (Kapitel 32) mit zahlreichen neuen Abschnitten, etwa zum quorum sensing, zur Induktion pluripotenter Stammzellen und zur Funktion der Mikro-RNAs - Integration neuer Forschungsergebnisse zum Zusammenhang zwischen Stoffwechsel, Ernährung und Fettleibigkeit sowie zur Bedeutung der Leptine - Berücksichtigung zahlreicher wissenschaftlicher Fortschritte zu DNA-Sequenzierung, Myosin, Glykomik, Vogelgrippe, Endocytose, Cholesterin, Helikasen,, Riboswitches u. v. m. - erweiterte Darstellung wichtiger Labormethoden - neue Beispiele für medizinische Zusammenhänge und klinische Anwendungen - deutlich mehr Übungsaufgaben an den Kapitelenden - zusätzliche Informationen, Materialien und Lernhilfen, etwa interaktive Molekülmodelle und Animationen, im Internet (englischsprachig) - die Abbildungen des Buches in elektronischer Form für den Einsatz in der Lehre
