Unsolved mysteries surround the remarkable men known as the Templars. Their ancient origins go back much further than their well-known adventures in the Middle East in the twelfth century. They knew that ancient secrets were waiting to be rediscovered and, perhaps, reactivated. They could generate labyrinthine codes - and decipher those that others had created in the remote past. But no real understanding of Templarism is possible without examining what became of their noble order after the treacherous attack of 1307. King Philip le Bel did not succeed in destroying all Templars - many escaped, including their fleet. Where did they go? Where are they now? What are their continuing purposes today?

Does a bilingual person have two separate lexicons and two separate grammatical systems? Or should the bilingual linguistic competence be regarded as an integrated system? This book explores this issue, which is central to current debate in the study of bilingualism, and argues for an integrated hypothesis: the linguistic competence of an individual is a single cognitive faculty, and the bilingual mind should not be regarded as fundamentally different from the monolingual one. This conclusion is backed up with a variety of empirical data, in particular code-switching, drawn from a variety of bilingual pairs. The book introduces key notions in minimalism and distributed morphology, making them accessible to readers with different scholarly foci. This book is of interest to those working in linguistics and psycholinguistics, especially bilingualism, code-switching, and the lexicon.

Perspectives on the Uniform Commercial CodePerspectives on the Uniform Commercial Code

"This anthology effectively destroys the widely held belief that the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) is a sterile and lifeless maze. Whereas most teaching and scholarship on the UCC has concerned itself with narrow issues surrounding one or more provisions, this book tackles the wider topics that make the UCC a living, experimental, and sometimes controversial text.The book begins with a treatment of the codification movement from which the UCC project was born and then turns to the history and drafting of the UCC, including selections from its principal drafters. Litowitz then raises pointed questions about the jurisprudence and interpretation of the UCC, including challenges from critics. After discussing often-neglected issues surrounding the social and political implications of the UCC, the discussion turns to currently pressing problems such as the amendment process and the arguments surrounding federalization. Students and professors alike will find the anthology a wonderful complement to the standard materials assigned in commercial law classes, facilitating a broader scholarly discussion of the UCC."
