This book discusses how much other countries reflect the EU chemical regulation REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, Restriction of Chemicals), in the context of Europeanization theory. The main hypothesis verified in this book is that more trade with the EU means more Europeanization (as the non-EU companies exporting to the EU have an obligation to comply with EU rules according to the ´´No data, No Market´´ REACH provision). This book further points out that non-EU companies voluntarily adopt EU standards while this change has yet to be reflected on the policy level in non-EU countries, mainly for economic reasons. Exploring changes in national chemical regulatory policies among top chemical producers around the World brings new ideas into the process of Europeanization behind EU borders and provides useful material for academia, regulatory experts and export oriented chemical industry.

The first volume of the extraordinary Southern Reach trilogy - now a major motion picture written and directed by Alex Garland (Ex Machina) and starring Natalie Portman and Oscar Isaac. For thirty years, Area X has remained mysterious and remote behind its intangible border – an environmental disaster zone, though to all appearances an abundant wilderness. The Southern Reach, a secretive government agency, has sent eleven expeditions to investigate Area X. One has ended in mass suicide, another in a hail of gunfire, the eleventh in a fatal cancer epidemic. Now four women embark on the twelfth expedition into the unknown. 1. Language: English.

Nur ein Kreuzer konnte aus der blutigen Schlacht um den Planeten REACH entkommen. An Bord befinden sich die wenigen Überlebenden des Massakers: Captain Keyes, ein paar Hundert Marines und der Master Chief der legendären SPARTANER-Eliteeinheit. Im Orbit über HALO werden die letzten Überlebenden der Reach-Schlacht von den Allianztruppen zur Notlandung gezwungen, wo sie von Feinden umzingelt werden. Es scheint so, als suchten die Außerirdischen etwas, das auf HALO verborgen ist. Die Ringwelt, die von einem längst vergessenen Volk erbaut wurde, hat viele tödliche Geheimnisse, doch eines stellt alle anderen Mysterien in den Schatten. Der Master Chief muss seine versprengten Truppen in ein brutales Wettrennen um HALOS dunkelstes Geheimnis führen - und dessen größte Machtquellen entfesseln.
In the desolate wastelands between the sierra and the jungle, under an all-seeing, unforgiving sun, a single day unfolds as relentlessly as those that have gone before. People are trafficked and brutalised, illegal migrants are cheated of their money, their dreams, their very names even as countless others scrabble to cross the border, trying to reach a land they call El Paraíso.In this grim inferno, a fierce love has blossomed?one that was born in pain and cruelty, and one that will live or die on this day. Estela and Epitafio too were trafficked, they grew together in the brutal orphanage, fell in love, but were ripped apart. They have played an ugly role in the very system that abused them, and done the bidding of the brutal old priest for too long. They have traded in migrants, put children to work as slaves, hacked off limbs and lives without a thought, though they have never forgotten the memory of their own shackles.Like the immigrants whose hopes they extinguish, they long to be free; free to be together and alone. Here in an unnamed land that could be a Mexico reimagined by Breughel and Dante, on the border between purgatory and inferno, where Paradise is the mouth of hell and cruelty the only currency, lives are spent, bartered and indentured for it. Must all be bankrupt among the lost?
