Increasing and intensified cross-border economic exchange such as trade and investment is an important feature of globalization. In the past, a distinction could be made between capital importing and exporting countries, or host and home countries for foreign direct investment (FDI). Due to globalization, FDI is presently made by and in both developed and developing countries. Differences in political, economic and legal systems and culture are no longer obstacles for FDI, and to varying degrees the economic development of almost all countries is closely linked with the inflow of FDI.
This book conducts critical assessments of aspects of current international law on FDI, focusing on cases decided by the tribunals of the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) and other tribunals as well as decisions of annulment ad hoc committees of the ICSID. In examining such cases, Guiguo Wang takes into account the Chinese culture and China's practice in the related areas. The book explores topics including: the development and trend of international investment law; unilateral, bilateral and multilateral mechanisms for encouraging and protecting FDIs; determination of qualified investors and investments and consent as conditions for protection; relative and absolute standards of treatment; determination of expropriation in practice; assessment of compensation for expropriation; difficulties in enforcing investment arbitral awards; and alternatives for improving the existing system.
The book will be of great use and interest to scholars, practitioners and students of international investment law and international economic law, Asian law, and Chinese studies.
Trumping the Race Card is a perfectly timed book, which brings crucial insight and understanding to the very complex topic of race, both historically and currently. This well written and accessible book, through a combination of the writer's personal history and conceptual frameworks, helps the reader understand not only the origins of the concept of race but also the inevitability of systemic racism throughout history. The book also goes the next step required to make change by providing ways to address the challenges and obstacles they present to relationships, organizations, and society.

In "Trumping the Race Card: A National Agenda - Moving beyond Race and Racism," author and diversity consultant Rodney Patterson provides a thought provoking examination of race and racism in the United States, which invites us to consider several questions, including: Are racism and prejudice the same or are they supporting ideologies? If a person is prejudice, does that make them racist as well? What makes a person a racist in the true sense of the word? Is there a way for us to trump the race card or overcome race and racism?
Mr. Patterson provides the Anatomy of an Ism model to show how biases can evolve and transition into acts of racism by individuals, ultimately becoming institutionalized within systems.
He concludes by encouraging each of us to avoid the inclination to "look the other way." More specifically, Mr. Patterson provides 10 strategies aptly designed as action steps, which cover a broad spectrum of concepts, each designed to move us collectively beyond race and racism, and bring us closer to the idea of living as a true community."
