Exploding the myth of de facto segregation arising from private prejudice or the unintended consequences of economic forces, Rothstein describes how the American government systematically imposed residential segregation: with undisguised racial zoning; public housing that purposefully segregated previously mixed communities; subsidies for builders to create whites-only suburbs; tax exemptions for institutions that enforced segregation; and support for violent resistance to African Americans in white neighborhoods. A groundbreaking, 鈥渧irtually indispensable鈥?study that has already transformed our understanding of twentieth-century urban history (<em>Chicago Daily Observer</em>), <em>The Color of Law</em> forces us to face the obligation to remedy our unconstitutional past.

<b>NAMED ONE OF THE 鈥?00 NOTABLE BOOKS OF THE YEAR鈥?BY <i>THE </i><i>NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW</i></b><br /> <br /><b>鈥淎n extraordinary book, I can鈥檛 recommend it highly enough.鈥?鈥揥hoopi Goldberg, <i>The View</i></b><br /> <br /><b>By the widely celebrated <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Last Call</i>鈥攖he powerful, definitive, and timely account of how the rise of eugenics helped America close the immigration door to 鈥渋nferiors鈥?in the 1920s.</b><br /><br />A forgotten, dark chapter of American history with implications for the current day, <i>The Guarded Gate </i>tells the story of the scientists who argued that certain nationalities were inherently inferior, providing the intellectual justification for the harshest immigration law in American history. Brandished by the upper class Bostonians and New Yorkers鈥攎any of them progressives鈥攚ho led the anti-immigration movement, the eugenic arguments helped keep hundreds of thousands of Jews, Italians, and other unwanted groups out of the US for more than 40 years.<br /> <br />Over five years in the writing, <i>The Guarded Gate </i>tells the complete story from its beginning in 1895, when Henry Cabot Lodge and other Boston Brahmins launched their anti-immigrant campaign. In 1921, Vice President Calvin Coolidge declared that 鈥渂iological laws鈥?had proven the inferiority of southern and eastern Europeans; the restrictive law was enacted three years later. In his characteristic style, both lively and authoritative, Okrent brings to life the rich cast of characters from this time, including Lodge鈥檚 closest friend, Theodore Roosevelt; Charles Darwin鈥檚 first cousin, Francis Galton, the idiosyncratic polymath who gave life to eugenics; the fabulously wealthy and profoundly bigoted Madison Grant, founder of the Bronx Zoo, and his best friend, H. Fairfield Osborn, director of the American Museum of Natural History; Margaret Sanger, who saw eugenics as a sensible adjunct to her birth control campaign; and Maxwell Perkins, the celebrated editor of Hemingway and Fitzgerald. A work of history relevant for today, <i>The Guarded Gate</i> is an important, insightful tale that painstakingly connects the American eugenicists to the rise of Nazism, and shows how their beliefs found fertile soil in the minds of citizens and leaders both here and abroad.

<b>By the one-time federal prosecutor for the Southern District of New York, an important overview of the way our justice system works, and why the rule of law is essential to our society. Using case histories, personal experiences and his own inviting writing and teaching style, Preet Bharara shows the thought process we need to best achieve truth and justice in our daily lives and within our society.</b><br /><br />Preet Bharara has spent much of his life examining our legal system, pushing to make it better, and prosecuting those looking to subvert it. Bharara believes in our system and knows it must be protected, but to do so, we must also acknowledge and allow for flaws in the system and in human nature.<br />聽聽聽聽 The book is divided into four sections: Inquiry, Accusation, Judgment and Punishment. He shows why each step of this process is crucial to the legal system, but he also shows how we all need to think about each stage of the process to achieve truth and justice in our daily lives.<br />聽聽聽聽 Bharara uses anecdotes and case histories from his legal career--the successes as well as the failures--to illustrate the realities of the legal system, and the consequences of taking action (and in some cases, not taking action, which can be just as essential when trying to achieve a just result). <br />聽聽聽聽 Much of what Bharara discusses is inspiring--it gives us hope that rational and objective fact-based thinking, combined with compassion, can truly lead us on a path toward truth and justice. Some of what he writes about will be controversial and cause much discussion. Ultimately, it is a thought-provoking, entertaining book about the need to find the humanity in our legal system--and in our society.

<em>Impeachment: What Everyone Needs to Know廬</em> is the step back and deep reflection on the law of impeachment that everyone needs now. Written in an accessible and lively question-and-answer format, it offers a timely explanation of the impeachment process from its very meaning to its role in politics today.<br /><br />The book defines the scope of impeachable offenses, and how the Constitution provides alternative procedures and sanctions for addressing misconduct in office. It explains why the only two presidential impeachments, those of Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton, failed to lead to conviction, and how the impeachments of federal judges illuminate the law and politics of the process.<br /><br />As a legal expert and the only joint witness in the impeachment proceedings against President Clinton, author Michael J. Gerhardt also explores a question frequently asked-will Donald Trump be impeached? This book does not take a side in the debate over the possible impeachment of the president; instead, it is a primer for anyone eager to learn about impeachment's origins, practices, limitations, and alternatives.

<b>Que devez-vous savoir en tant qu'administrateur ou actionnaire de SRL ? Cet ouvrage th茅matique vous r茅pondra point par point !</b><br /><br />脌 la suite de l鈥檃doption du nouveau Code des soci茅t茅s et associations (CSA), la SRL remplace la SPRL, mais 茅galement un certain nombre de SCRL. D貓s le 1er janvier 2020, il n鈥檡 aura donc plus de SPRL, mais uniquement des SRL. De m錨me, il ne sera plus question de 蘆 g茅rants 祿 mais d鈥櫬?administrateurs 祿 et les associ茅s laisseront la place aux actionnaires. Outre ces modifications terminologiques, le cadre l茅gal de la SRL offre beaucoup plus de flexibilit茅 que celui de la SPRL. La SRL devient la forme juridique de r茅f茅rence pour toutes les soci茅t茅s 脿 l'exception des grandes soci茅t茅s avec un actionnariat important. En cons茅quence de la disparition du capital, le CSA introduit 茅galement de nouvelles obligations pour les administrateurs. Par exemple, ils devront r茅aliser deux tests n茅cessitant des donn茅es financi貓res pr茅visionnelles et 茅tablir un rapport justificatif avant toute distribution aux actionnaires.<br />R茅dig茅 dans un langage accessible, cet ouvrage subdivis茅 par th貓mes r茅pond aux principales questions que se posent les administrateurs de SRL dans le cadre de la gestion de leur entreprise. Il est 茅galement destin茅 aux professionnels du chiffre qui sont souvent les conseillers de premi貓re ligne des entrepreneurs. Ce guide pratique constitue un aide-m茅moire pour l'administrateur de SRL qui, avant de prendre certaines d茅cisions importantes, devra recourir aux services de conseillers externes sp茅cialis茅s.<br /><br /><b>Th貓me par th貓me, ce guide pratique r茅pond 脿 vos interrogations dans un langage accessible et constitue un aide-m茅moire pr茅cieux pour tout administrateur de SRL !</b><br /><br />EXTRAIT<br /><br />1. Qui nomme l鈥檃dministrateur ou les administrateurs ? <br />La nomination se fait soit 脿 l鈥檕ccasion de la constitution de la soci茅t茅, soit ult茅rieurement. Dans cette derni貓re situation, seule l鈥檃ssembl茅e g茅n茅rale est habilit茅e 脿 nommer l鈥檃dministrateur ou les administrateurs (art. 5:70, 摟 2, CSA).<br />En l鈥檃bsence d鈥檃dministrateur, s鈥檌l y a un blocage au niveau de l鈥檃ssembl茅e g茅n茅rale qui emp錨che la nomination d鈥檜n administrateur, un administrateur provisoire pourrait 錨tre nomm茅 par d茅cision de justice.<br /><br />2. L鈥檃dministrateur doit-il 錨tre un actionnaire ?<br />L鈥檃dministrateur ne doit pas n茅cessairement 錨tre un actionnaire. En revanche, il est indispensable que l鈥檃dministrateur dispose des comp茅tences n茅cessaires pour administrer la soci茅t茅.<br /><br />脌 PROPOS DE L'AUTEUR<br /><br />R茅viseur d鈥檈ntreprises honoraire, <b>Jean Pierre Vincke</b> a 茅t茅 charg茅 de cours dans l鈥檈nseignement sup茅rieur et de niveau universitaire pendant de tr貓s nombreuses ann茅es.
