Joe Rollins.  

AIDS and the sexuality of law : ironic jurisprudence.  Palgrave Macmillan, c2004.

KF3803.A54R65 2004

 

AIDS and the Sexuality of Law explores the role that HIV/AIDS has played in the legal construction of sexuality. AIDS and its metaphors have been judicially enlisted to patrol the boundaries of heterosexuality, producing flawed understandings of HIV/AIDS and sexuality. The proliferation of this flawed knowledge through judicial discourse has had a profound impact on the way sexuality is understood. Even more fundamentally, closer analysis exposes the ironic processes of the law whereby material reality, ignorance, and belief interact to replace unknowns with 'social facts.' The book concludes optimistically, arguing that there is political value in uncertainty.

 

 

Rose-Marie Belle Antoine,

Trusts and related tax issues in offshore financial law.  Oxford University Press, c2005. 

K4464.5.A96 2005

 

Offshore trusts are statutory creations of offshore financial centers and significant departures from traditional common law trusts. They are vehicles for tax planning, estate planning, asset protection, and broader investment objectives in offshore jurisdictions, always operate within a special legal framework.  An offshore trust embodies significant and often radical concepts, such as the purpose trust, and trusts created specifically to avoid forced heirship regimes.  This book examines this complex legal framework and the corresponding jurisprudence in detail, providing a tool in this growing area for the practitioner and academic alike.
