            'A must-read. Acemoglu and Robinson are intellectual heavyweights of the first rank . . . erudite and fascinating' Paul Collier, Guardian, on Why Nations Fail In this profoundly important follow up to their global bestseller, Acemoglu and Robinson provide a powerful new framework... for looking at countries' development through the way that the state interacts with society. This conceptualisation - in which any country can be located on a simple diagram and its future predicted - is new and based on decades of their research. The power distribution between state and society affects how peaceful societies are, what types of institutions develop, how much oppression and fear people suffer, how their economies are organized, and how rich they are. Full of entertaining stories from the past (it starts with the wife of a Nigerian ruler fleeing Abuja with 38 suitcases of cash), Balance of Power sheds light on issues from the present and has practical political ideas for the future. 'An intellectually rich book that develops an important thesis with verve' Martin Wolf, Financial Times, on Why Nations Fail

            Environmental and Resource Management Law
              

            Environmental and Resource Management Law (Paperback, 7th edition)

            Environmental and resource management law is a major component of legal practice. It is also relevant to the work of many other professions, those engaged in industry or working in central or local government and community groups. A key factor in the development of the law was th...e introduction of two pieces of legislation - the Resource Management Act 1991, and the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms Act 1996. Both Acts have been amended frequently since their enactment. Other legislation and central government initiatives continue to affect practice in the field. Examples include actions taken under the Climate Change Response Act 2002 and the enactment of the Environmental Protection Authority Act 2011; the Marine and Coastal Area (Takutai Moana) Act 2011; the Exclusive Economic Zone and Continental Shelf (Environmental Effects) Act 2012; and the Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga Act 2014. The Courts, including the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court, have issued decisions influencing the interpretation and application of our environmental laws in a significant manner. This book is intended primarily for legal practitioners and other people working in the environmental and resource management law field, but will also be useful for students, since it covers the same ground as many environmental and resource management law courses taught in New Zealand universities and other educational institutions.
