ggf. zzgl. Versand

Retired architect Otto Laird is living a peaceful, if slightly bemused, existence in Switzerland with his second wife, Anika. Once renowned for his radical designs, Otto now spends his days communing with nature and writing eccentric letters to old friends (which he doesn't mail). But Otto's comfortable life is rudely interrupted when he learns that his most significant and revolutionary building, Marlowe House, a 1960s tower block estate in South London, is set to be demolished. Otto is outraged. Determined to do everything in his power to save the building, he reluctantly agrees to take part in a television documentary, which will mean returning to London for the first time in 25 years to live for a week in Marlowe House. Once Otto becomes reacquainted with the city he called home for most of his life, his memories begin to come alive. And as he mines his past and considers life moving forward - for himself and his building - Otto embarks on a remarkable journey that will change everything he ever thought he knew.  1.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Voting in Switzerland is the process by which Swiss citizens make decisions about governance and elect officials. Voting takes place over the week-end, with emphasis being put on the Sunday. At noon on that day ("Abstimmungssonntag" in German), voting ends.Approximately four times a year, voting occurs over various issues, these include both referenda, where policies are directly voted on by people, and elections, where the populace votes for officials. These votes take place during the weekend. Federal, cantonal and municipal issues are polled simultaneously, and the majority of people cast their votes by mail.

Regulating the Mail Market
53,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The postal market is one of the oldest if not the oldest network industry. After centuries of private and public postal monopolies, the EC aims to liberalize the mail market entirely whilst safeguarding the Universal Postal Service. Based on Swiss Data, the book first identifies the main drivers of mail volumes and draws special attention to "e-substitution", one of the major challenges of the postal industry. The book then assesses the most important cost characteristics of the postal market. In the core of the book, the main regulatory market models are described, modeled, and analyzed on their price and welfare implications. The last part of the book focuses on the two- sidedness of the postal market, an issue that will be crucial for successful long term regulation of the sector. In doing so, the book outlines the main regulatory challenges of the industry. For the Swiss case, it addresses the key issue whether a full market opening of the Swiss mail market is economically desirable given the current level of universal service obligations in Switzerland.

The Criminal Victimization of Immigrants
46,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book offers a comprehensive examination of the many forms of victimization of immigrants, including trafficking in persons for sexual exploitation and forced labor, assaulting, robbing and raping, refusing to pay wages, renting illegal living space that violates health codes, and domestic abuse both in general, and in particular, of mail-order brides. McDonald examines a broad range of quantitative and qualitative data from historical and international sources including the USA, Canada, Mexico, Britain, Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, Poland, and Spain. He writes with a view to correcting myths about the relationship between immigrants and crime, noting that immigrants are more likely to become victims than offenders. The book outlines the multiple forms and contexts in which immigrants are victimized, exploited, and harmed. Reviewing micro- and macro-level victimological and sociological theories as they apply to patterns and forms of immigrants' victimization, this study ultimately seeks to understand reasons for which immigrants are victimized by their own kind, and by persons outside their community.
