John A. Townsend [et al.].

Tax crimes. LexisNexis Matthew Bender, 2008

KF6334.T39 2008


This book addresses the numerous substantive and procedural issues that arise in the investigation, prosecution, and defense of tax crimes and related offenses. It is designed to provide graduate tax students with a solid foundation in the applicable rules and to enhance their skills in reading and applying complex statutes and regulations. This book map provides an overview of criminal tax and develops the elements of and principal defenses to tax crimes, then takes a “life cycle” approach, tracking the stages of a criminal tax case from investigation to sentencing. It also addresses ancillary issues, such as forfeitures, disabilities, publicity, ethics, and civil tax liability and penalties, then ties the various topics together with a comprehensive problem.


Georgios I. Zekos.

International commercial and marine arbitration. Routledge-Cavendish, 2008

K1155.Z45 2008


This book analyses and compares commercial-maritime arbitration in a number of different legal systems including the US, the UK, Greece, and Belgium. It examines the role of the courts in arbitration in each of these countries, making reference to the latest case law, and also makes extensive reference to French, German, Italian, Austrian, Swiss and Netherlands law. Zekos also traces the historical emergence of the modern system of commercial arbitration and suggests ways to make the current process of arbitration more effective.
