Legal Aspects of Architecture, Engineering and the Construction Process Book Review:

The primary focus of this text is to provide a bridge for students between the academic world and the real world. This bridge is built through an understanding of what is law, how law is created, how law affects almost every activity of human conduct, and how legal institutions operate. Intended mainly for architectural and engineering students, but increasingly for those in business schools and law schools, this text features a clear, concise, and jargon-free presentation. It probes beneath the surface of legal rules and uncovers why these rules developed as they did, outlines arguments for and against these rules, and examines how they work in practice. Updated with the most recent developments in the legal aspects of architectural, engineering, and the construction processes, this text is also a valuable reference for practitioners and has been cited in over twenty-five court decisions.

Architecture and Engineering Book Review:

The book is addressed to architects and civil engineers. Design and research are areas connecting their activities. The contents of the book confirm the fact that the interface between architecture and engineering is multidimensional. The ways of finding points of contact between the two industries are highlighted. This is favored by the dynamically changing reality, supported by new design paradigms and new research techniques. The multithreaded subject matter of the articles is reduced to six sections: Research Scopes, Methods, Design Aspects, Context, Nature of Research, and Economy and Cost Calculation. Each of the articles in these six blocks has its weight. And so, in the Nature of Research section, the following areas have been underscored: laboratory tests, in situ research, field investigations, and street perception experiments. The section Design Aspects includes design-oriented thinking, geometrical forms, location of buildings, cost prediction, attractor and distractor elements, and shaping spatial structures. The new design and research tools are an inspiration and a keystone bonding architects and engineers.

Construction Accident Law Book Review:

Twenty years ago, there were 2500 lawyers in China, basically no legal system, and law schools and law libraries had either been closed or destroyed. It was one of the poorest countries in the world with an adult literacy rate of one-third. Today, illiteracy has dropped to below 10 per cent, consumption has more than doubled, and China has exploded as a major economic force in the global community, with the USA alone investing billions of dollars, aside from pursuing an increasing number of untapped markets. Now with more than 100,000 lawyers and mandated Rule of Law, China has enacted a multitude of new laws, regulations, and orders that must be understood if one wants to do any kind of foreign investment or trade in that country. This work is a guide to the complex laws of China. It opens with a survey of the historical development of China's contemporary legal system, and provides a summary of Chinese legislative and regulatory institutions and their functions. It also gives an overview of the judiciary and the many forces affecting China's evolving legal system.

First published in 1995, the award-winning Civil Engineering Handbook soon became known as the field's definitive reference. To retain its standing as a complete, authoritative resource, the editors have incorporated into this edition the many changes in techniques, tools, and materials that over the last seven years have found their way into civil engineering research and practice. The Civil Engineering Handbook, Second Edition is more comprehensive than ever. You'll find new, updated, and expanded coverage in every section. In fact, more than 1/3 of the handbook is new or substantially revised. In particular you'll find increased focus on computing reflecting the rapid advances in computer technology that has revolutionized many aspects of civil engineering. You'll use it as a survey of the field, you'll use it to explore a particular subject, but most of all you'll use The Civil Engineering Handbook to answer the problems, questions, and conundrums you encounter in practice.
