Two SS officers, both involved in Hitler's Final Solution, both in love with a beautiful woman - but only one can live with his conscience. A powerful story set in Berlin, in the 1930s and early 1940s, and woven around the fortunes of three people; an ambitious SS Officer, Walter Gunter, his naÃ¯ve wife, Hedda, and a guilt-ridden SS Officer, Karl Muller. Gunter is intensely loyal to the Third Reich, entirely ruthless, and dreams of military renown, so is outraged to be placed in charge of the T4 euthanasia programme. Muller, an engineer and trainee doctor, reluctantly oversees the safe delivery of lethal gases and drugs to the killing centres, and is required to convert shower rooms and bathrooms to gas chambers in commandeered hospitals and prisons.
This tribute to Professor Arthur von Mehren from the Harvard Law School is a contribution to the evolving transatlantic dialogue on the conflict of laws. It contains ten contributions that discuss the problems conflict of laws is facing in a globalized world. The first five contributions deal with current legal topics in international civil litigation and transatlantic judicial co-operation ranging from the design of judgments conventions to the recently adopted Hague Convention on Choice of Court Agreements, and from problems involving negative declaratory actions in international disputes to recent transatlantic developments relating to service of process and collective proceedings. The remaining five contributions focus on choice of law in international relationships. They cover comparative and economic dimensions of party autonomy, reflect on discussions in the choice of law relating to intellectual property rights, and critically discuss the applicable law in antitrust law litigation, international arbitration, and actions for punitive damages.

Amongst topics covered include human rights, criminal law, law of the sea, good governance, democracy, foreign investment, and regional integration. The conference, which the book is based on, focuses on Asia and the Pacific, two regions where law has taken an inevitable position in creating and shaping the regional integrations, new legal institutions, and norms. This reconfirms the idea that legal order is extremely important in the global world. Simply put, this book provides new insights and new horizon on how law and justice took part in globalizing human interaction, especially in the Asia Pacific region.
