Mit seiner 1892 in der endgültigen Fassung veröffentlichten Schrift zur Entwicklungsgeschichte der menschlichen Gesellschaft gilt Friedrich Engels als unmittelbarer Vorläufer der modernen Wirtschafts- und Staatssoziologie. Zunächst betrachtet der Autor die schrittweise Entwicklung von der barbarischen Urgesellschaft bis zur Durchsetzung der Zivilisation in Gestalt des römischen Reichs. In einem zweiten Schritt parallelisiert Engels diesen Prozess dann mit der Entstehung der verschiedenen Familienformen und der daraus hervorgehenden Vorstellung des Privateigentums.

The 2015 edition of ISO 9001 has been modernized to update terminology and content to meet current and anticipated user needs. The major emphasis of ISO 9001:2015 is still consistent provision of products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. This book explains the meaning and intent of the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 and discusses the requirements as they relate to each of the product categories. Where appropriate, it includes an elaboration of why the requirements are important. It also includes typical audit-type questions that an organization may consider to assess conformity to internal needs and ISO 9001 requirements. Recommendations for implementation are also included. This book addresses the needs of: Users and organizations seeking a general understanding of the contents of ISO 9001:2015 Users and organizations desiring guidance to ensure their ISO 9001:2015 QMS meets the new version requirements Users and organizations considering the use of ISO 9001:2015 as a foundation for the development of a comprehensive QMS Educators who require a textbook to accompany a training class or course on ISO 9001:2015 Auditors who desire to increase their level of auditing competence Authors Cianfrani and West, members of the expert group that developed ISO 9001:2015, strive to provide a context for all requirements to enable you to develop and deploy processes that will strengthen your QMS. Getting or retaining a certificate is not the real objective. Satisfied customers and organizational sustainability should be primary objectives for the organization.

Postkapitalismus

Grundrisse einer kommenden Ökonomie

Author: Paul Mason

Publisher: Suhrkamp Verlag

ISBN: 351874478X

Category: Political Science

Page: 500

View: 6126

Drei Dinge wissen wir: Der Kapitalismus hat den Feudalismus abgelöst; seither durchlief er zyklische Tiefs, spätestens seit 2008 stottert der Motor. Was wir nicht wissen: Erleben wir eine der üblichen Krisen oder den Anbruch einer postkapitalistischen Ordnung? Paul Mason blickt auf die Daten, sichtet Krisentheorien – und sagt: Wir stehen am Anfang von etwas Neuem. Er nimmt dabei Überlegungen auf, die vor über 150 Jahren in einer Londoner Bibliothek entwickelt wurden und laut denen Wissen und intelligente Maschinen den Kapitalismus eines Tages »in die Luft sprengen« könnten. Im Zeitalter des Stahls und der Schrauben, der Hierarchien und der Knappheit war diese Vision so radikal, dass Marx sie schnell in der Schublade verschwinden ließ. In der Welt der Netzwerke, der Kooperation und des digitalen Überflusses ist sie aktueller denn je. In seinem atemberaubenden Buch führt Paul Mason durch Schreibstuben, Gefängniszellen, Flugzeugfabriken und an die Orte, an denen sich der Widerstand Bahn bricht. Mason verknüpft das Abstrakte mit dem Konkreten, bündelt die Überlegungen von Autoren wie Thomas Piketty, David Graeber, Jeremy Rifkin und Antonio Negri und zeigt, wie wir aus den Trümmern des Neoliberalismus eine gerechtere und nachhaltigere Gesellschaft errichten können.

Law 101

Everything You Need to Know About American Law, Fourth Edition

Author: Jay Feinman

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 0199341702

Category: Law

Page: 400

View: 9005

In each of the first three editions of the bestselling Law 101, Jay Feinman gave readers an upbeat and vivid examination of the American legal system. Since the third edition was published in 2010, much has happened: several key Supreme Court cases have been decided, we've seen sensational criminal trials, and the legal system has had to account for the latest developments in Internet law. This fully updated fourth edition of Law 101 accounts for all this and more, as Feinman once again provides a clear introduction to American law. The book covers all the main subjects taught in the first year of law school, and discusses every facet of the American legal tradition, including constitutional law, the litigation process, and criminal, property, and contracts law. To accomplish this, Feinman brings in the most noteworthy, infamous, and often outrageous examples and cases. We learn about the case involving scalding coffee that cost McDonald's half a million dollars, the murder trial in Victorian London that gave us the legal definition of insanity, and the epochal decision of Marbury vs. Madison that gave the Supreme Court the power to declare state and federal law unconstitutional. A key to learning about the law is learning legal vocabulary, and Feinman helps by clarifying terms like "due process" and "equal protection," as well as by drawing distinctions between terms like "murder" and "manslaughter." Above all, though, is that Feinman reveals to readers of all kinds that despite its complexities and quirks, the law is can be understood by everyone. Perfect for students contemplating law school, journalists covering legislature, or even casual fans of "court-television" shows, Law 101 is a clear and accessible introduction to the American legal system. New to this edition: Featured analysis of: -the Obamacare case -Citizens United -the DOMA decision -the Trayvon Martin case As well as recent legal developments pertaining to: -online contracting -mortgages -police investigations -criminal sentencing

Eigentum im internationalen Vergleich

18.–20. Jahrhundert

Author: Hannes Siegrist,David Sugarman

Publisher: Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht

ISBN: 3647357936

Category: History

Page: 294

View: 6808

Das Eigentum spielt in der modernen Gesellschafts- und Kulturgeschichte eine zentrale Rolle. Die Transformationsprozesse in Mittel- und Osteuropa führen das besonders deutlich vor Augen, doch auch in Westeuropa geraten gängige Vorstellungen über das Eigentum angesichts von Deregulierung und Umverteilung, von neuen Informationstechnologien und neuen Knappheiten unter Druck. Das Eigentumsrecht, zu dem auch Konventionen, Doktrinen und kulturelle Praktiken gehören, prägt Wahrnehmungen, Erfahrungen, Handlungen, gesellschaftliche Strukturen und Vorstellungen. Es kodiert die politische und kulturelle Ordnung, es legt fest, was richtig ist, wer und was anerkannt, geschützt und ausgeschlossen wird. Die Diskurse über Eigentum kreisen daher um prinzipielle Probleme der modernen Gesellschaft, etwa um Fragen nach Freiheit, Verantwortung und Gerechtigkeit.Die Bedeutung des Eigentums wird in diesem Band für verschiedene Entwicklungsperioden vom 18. Jahrhundert bis heute untersucht. Daneben werden Vergleiche zwischen verschiedenen sozialen Gruppen, Gesellschaften und Kulturen auf regionaler, nationaler und systematischer Ebene durchgeführt. Es zeigt sich, daß der individualistische, liberale Eigentumsbegriff in den letzten zwei Jahrhunderten in weiten Gebieten der Welt den Umgang mit Gütern, die sozialen Beziehungen und die wirtschaftlichen, sozialen und kulturellen Verhältnisse geprägt hat, wenn auch mit nationalen und regionalen Unterschieden. Die Autoren verbinden Gesellschafts- und Kulturgeschichte mit Rechtsgeschichte und machen Eigentum zum Ausgangspunkt für die historische Analyse von Gesellschaften und Kulturen.
