Lawyer, arbitrator, negotiator, author, educator, drafter, rapporteur andndash; for sixty years Pieter Sanders has been in the eye of the storm as during this period arbitration grew into the world's preferred method for the resolution of commercial disputes.

Quo Vadis Arbitration? will not disappoint the many lawyers, judges, legislators and businesspeople to whom it is addressed. Drawing on his wide and varied experience--and especially on the occasions when resourceful measures had to be taken in the absence of clear legal guidance--Professor Sanders presents cogent, well-reasoned arguments and recommendations for: the main issues which may arise in any arbitration a revision of the UNCITRAL Model Law a harmonisation of Rules on Conciliation and drafting a Model Law on Conciliation refining Codes of Ethics and Codes of Taking Evidence to strengthen bridges between cultural differences A list of the author's achievements is virtually a history of the development of international arbitration since the 1930s. With many warmly shared anecdotes of the conflicts, compromises and triumphs of pivotal meetings and conventions, Professor Sanders takes the reader behind the scenes for a rare glimpse into the inner workings of the complex and rewarding process that created this invaluable modern discipline. Quo Vadis Arbitration? also provides a masterful but simple exposition of the arbitral process, from the validity of the arbitration agreement to the means of recourse against the award. This is a book that will be warmly appreciated--and used--by arbitration specialists of any degree of expertise, anywhere in the world.

Whither Quo Vadis? offers an engaging account of how the Roman world and its history are represented in film and the way in which the different adaptations reflect the shifting historical situations and ideological concerns of their own times. Explores five surviving film adaptations – Guazzoni's of 1912; D’Annunzio/Jacoby of 1925; Mervyn LeRoy's of 1951; the Italian TV mini-series of 1985 by Franco Rossi; and Kawalerowicz’s 2001 Polish version Examines how these different versions interpret, select from, and modify the novel and the ancient sources on which it is based Offers an exceptionally clear view of how films have presented ancient Rome and how modern conditions determine its reception Looks at rare and archival material which has not previously received close scholarly attention

Quo Vadis, is a historical novel written by Henryk Sienkiewicz. The novel Quo Vadis tells of a love that develops between a young Christian woman, Ligia (or Lygia), and Marcus Vinicius, a Roman patrician. It takes place in the city of Rome under the rule of emperor Nero around AD 64. Sienkiewicz studied the Roman Empire extensively prior to writing the novel, with the aim of getting historical details correct. As such, several historical figures appear in the book. As a whole, the novel carries an outspoken pro-Christian message. This novel contributed to Sienkiewicz's Nobel Prize for literature.

Each contribution is an article in itself, and great effort has been made by the authors to be lucid and not too technical. A few brief highlights of the round-table discussions are given between the chapters. Topics include: Quantum non-locality, the measurement problem, quantum insights into relativity, cosmology and thermodynamics, and possible bearings of quantum mechanics to biology and consciousness. Authors include Yakir Aharanov and Anton Zeilinger, plus Nobel laureates Anthony J. Leggett (2003) and Gerardus ‘t Hooft (1999). Foreword written by Sir Roger Penrose, best-selling author (The Emperor's New Mind) and world-renowned mathematical physicist.

Quo Vadis: Evolution of Modern Navigation presents an intelligent and intelligible account of the essential principles underlying the design of satellite navigational systems—with introductory chapters placing them in context with the early development of navigational methods. The material is organized roughly as follows: the first third of the book deals with navigation in the natural world, the early history of navigation, navigating by the stars, precise mechanical chronometers for the determination of longitude at sea, and the development of precise quartz controlled clocks. Then, the reader is introduced to quantum ideas as a lead in to a discussion of microwave and optical interactions with atoms, atomic clocks, laser gyrocompasses, and time based navigation. The final third of the book deals with satellite-based systems, including orbit theory, early satellite navigation systems, and a detailed treatment of the Global Positioning System (GPS). Intended for non-specialists with some knowledge of physics or engineering at the college level, this book covers in an intuitive manner a broad range of topics relevant to the evolution of surface and space navigation, with minimum mathematical formalism.

Quo vadis?-Where are you going?-is an appropriate question to ask of the current evangelical movement. To get a bearing on evangelical thought and assess future directions, the editor of the Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society, Andreas J. Köstenberger, has gathered selected addresses from past presidents of the ETS and contributed a thorough introduction and probing epilogue of his own. Covering the early years, the maturing movement, and recent times, the addresses-which span JETS' first fifty years-include discussions of foundational doctrinal issues, exegetical and theological practice and methodology, and current concerns delivered by some of evangelicalism's most distinguished leaders. These presidential addresses give today's scholars a much fuller and deeper appreciation of the history of evangelicalism and their place within it. Readers will also experience great hope for the future of a movement whose best days, by God's grace, are yet to come.
