Dr Andrew Simpson with the essay collection

The latest additions to the Taylor Library general book collection have now been added to the new acquisitions page. See the list below for details and links to the book entries on Primo.

As we near the end of term, the number of books coming in naturally goes down, however April’s sole addition is one of note –  a collection of essays in memory of Professor Angelo Forte (1949 – 2012),  who held the Chair of Commercial Law at the University of Aberdeen from 1993 – 2010. The volume is contributed to and edited by Aberdeen Law Lecturer Dr. Andrew Simpson, and in addition to being available to borrow from the Taylor Library, the collection is also available to purchase here.

The volume was successfully launched in the Craig Suite of the Sir Duncan Rice Library on 20th January of this year.

Featured Book of the Month: Ecological Governance by Dr Olivia Woolley

Acquisitions WoolleyFeatured book this month:

Ecological Governance by Olivia Woolley

Here is a portion of the publisher’s description:

‘Ecological degradation has been an object of concern for the international community since the early 1970s, but legal approaches that have been employed to improve the protection of ecosystems have failed to halt this decline. Ecological Governance explores how the law should respond to this rapid global deterioration of ecosystems by examining the foundational scientific and ethical considerations for designing laws that are effective for ecological protection.’

Head to the publisher’s website to find out more and read some excerpts. Alternatively, just pop in to Taylor and have a look!
