A Social Psychological Analysis

This book represents a new look at social psychology and relationships for the discerning reader and university student. The title of the book argues forcefully that the very nature of being human is defined by our relationships with others, our lovers, family, and our functional or dysfunctional interactions.
Written in easy to follow logical progression the volume covers all major topical areas of social psychology, with results of empirical research of the most recent years included. A common project between American and European social psychologists the book seeks to build a bridge between research findings in both regions of the world. In doing so the interpretations of the research takes a critical stand toward dysfunction in modern societies, and in particular the consequences of endless war and repression.

Woorden worden meestal gebruikt in combinatie met andere woorden: in verband met, houden van, zich afvragen of, boodschappen doen, hard werken, prettige vakantie. Zoals uit deze voorbeelden blijkt, kunnen diverse woordsoorten (voorzetsels, zelfstandige naamwoorden, werkwoorden, bijwoorden, voegwoorden, bijvoeglijke naamwoorden) combinaties aangaan. Omdat in het Nederlands zelfstandige naamwoorden en werkwoorden de twee meest voorkomende woordsoorten zijn, ligt het voor de hand dat combinaties van deze twee woordsoorten zeer frequent zijn.

In Nederlandse woordenboeken kan men woordcombinaties vinden. Maar woordenboeken, hoe uitgebreid ook, geven maar een zeer beperkte weergave van het totale taalaanbod. Dat geldt voor alle aspecten van een taal en dus ook voor de combinatie zelfstandig naamwoord + werkwoord. Daarvan wordt, ook in de grootste woordenboeken, maar een kleine gedeelte opgenomen. En behalve beperkt, is de vermelding nogal willekeurig en soms onlogisch. Criteria voor het al dan niet opnemen van verbindingen worden nergens genoemd.

Door mijn werkzaamheden als docent Nederlands als tweede taal en als vreemde taal was het mij duidelijk geworden dat voor anderstaligen – ook voor de vergevorderden – het gebruik van de juiste combinatie van zelfstandig naamwoord en werkwoord moeilijk is. Daarnaast was er het gegeven dat deze categorie, maar ook hun docenten en de samenstellers van lesmateriaal, niet konden beschikken over een degelijk overzicht van genoemde combinaties.
Dat leidde in 2003 (herdruk 2006) tot de publicatie van het Combinatiewoordenboek van Nederlandse substantieven met hun vaste verba. De doelgroep was in de eerste plaats de anderstalige, maar tegelijkertijd wilde het Combinatiewoordenboek een min of meer volledig woordenboek zijn. Dat had iets tweeslachtigs.

Dr. Fidèle Masengo, Didas Muganga Kayihura & Elvis M. Binda ~ Rwanda Company Law 2009

The Rwandan Commercial Law Books Series 3
130 pag.
Euro 19,50
ISBN 978 90 361 0444 9

This piece of work authored by Fidèle Masengo, Didas Muganga Kayihura and Elvis M. Mbembe through the support from the Institute of Law Practice and Development (ILPD) intends to digest and make the Company Law 2009 as well as its subsequent 2010 amendment more comprehensible and understandable to their end users especially from academia, Legal practitioners and the judiciary. This work becomes more relevant and inevitable especially that, having been highly influenced by the common law, the Company Law 2009 turns us to a different mindset altogether from its civilist predecessor (the 1988 Law on Commercial Enterprises) that governed companies and other business associations.
It brings to book some new concepts and terms to the Rwandan Legal system that, where not elaborated, explained and contextualized, would lead to confusion of Law students and/or practitioners reading and applying this law, but from its predecessor’s (1988 law) background.

Rwandan legal system that used to be purely civil with a remarkable influence from the Belgian and French legal systems has, since the 2004 judicial reforms, embraced a somewhat mixed legal system that incorporates both civil and common law best practices. Rwandan new Commercial laws including the company law thus, have today not only responded to this trend but have as well considered the globalization and its impact in the global trade and practice. This piece of work interprets company law provisions from the Rwandan law perspective but with consideration to what takes place elsewhere in the world.

Bernadette Uwicyeza (Ed.) – New Law Governing Contracts in Rwanda

The Rwandan Commercial Law Books Series 2
Institute Of Legal Practice And Development, Nyanza
16,5 x 24 cm
72 pages
ISBN 978 90 361 0362 6
Euro 16,50

Contract law is an important subject for the business managers entering into contracts with suppliers of goods and services, employees and customers. Contract Law is also basic to other fields of law covered by the Business Law Reform Project like business associations, secured transactions and Negotiable instruments.
Due to the increasing demands of modern commercial transactions, contracts which were never catered for by the general framework of the Civil Code Book III, had to be concluded. Consequently new laws had to be enacted so as to safeguard the rights and obligations of the parties, such as transport and transport agents, pledge of business assets, insurance and leasing. This illustrates the gaps in the general framework of Contractual Obligations.
The main sources of the new law governing contracts are the American Restatement of The Law, Second, Contracts, a Restatement of the Common law of the States of the United States of America but various adjustments, modifications, and adaptations have been made to make it appropriate to the Rwandan context.
The new law governing contract is comprised of 165 articles in six chapters with substantial provisions and two chapter on General provisions, final and transitional provisions.

The original version is in English but the Law was voted in Kinyarwanda and the English original version reviewed accordingly. Sometimes legal terms accepted in Common Law were lost in translation, which makes the provisions of the law in the English version sometimes incomprehensible.

This book offers the context to the provisions of the enacted law to enable users to understand the spirit and the provisions of the law. Where necessary, the right terminology of the original version in English is used to enable local professionals used to the Civil law terminology to get the right translation in English and to enable outside users used to the Common Law terminology to understand the English version of the law.
