Paul Karl Feyerabend (January 13, 1924 February 11, 1994) was an Austrian-born philosopher of science best known for his work as a professor of philosophy at the University of California, Berkeley, where he worked for three decades (1958 1989). His life was a peripatetic one, as he lived at various times in England, the United States, New Zealand, Italy, Germany, and finally Switzerland. His major works include Against Method (published in 1975), Science in a Free Society (published in 1978) and Farewell to Reason (a collection of papers published in 1987). Feyerabend became famous for his purportedly anarchistic view of science and his rejection of the existence of universal methodological rules. He is an influential figure in the philosophy of science, and also in the sociology of scientific knowledge.

The World Zionist Organization or WZO, was founded as the Zionist Organization, or ZO, in 1897 at the First Zionist Congress, held from August 29 to August 31 in Basel, Switzerland, it changed its name to World Zionist Organization in January 1960. The ZO served as an umbrella organization for the Zionist movement, which aimed at creating a Jewish homeland in Palestine. Theodor Herzl, who with Max Nordau and Zvi Shimshi, organized the first Congress, later wrote in his diary: "If I were to sum up the Congress in a word which I shall take care not to publish it would be this: At Basle I founded the Jewish State. If I said this out loud today I would be greeted by universal laughter. In five years perhaps, and certainly in fifty years, everyone will perceive it."
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.

This publication is part of the International Max Planck Information System for Comparative Criminal Law, a project at the heart of the comparative legal research of the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law in Freiburg/Germany. A primary objective of this project is to develop a universal meta-structure of criminal law that can serve as the basis for the organization of material, enable systematic comparisons, and further the development of an international criminal law doctrine. This meta-structure is also a prerequisite for analyzing the various approaches taken around the world to shared criminal law-related problems, identifying general legal principles, and drafting international model codes. A second goal of the project is to provide global access by means of a computer-based expert system to data from the participating legal systems in the form of country reports organized on the basis of the aforementioned universal meta-structure.Towards these ends, a pilot project was carried out to analyze, structure, and present the General Part of the criminal law in twelve legal systems. The results were published in five volumes from 2008 to 2010 (in German). In the meantime, the number of legal systems included in the study has grown considerably, with the help of contributions from researchers at the Max Planck Institute as well as from external research partners. First fruits of this expansion are presented here, with the publication of reports from an additional eleven countries: Australia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Hungary, India, Iran, Japan, Romania, Russia, Switzerland, Uruguay, and the United States of America.
