Peo­ple's War­rior: John Moss And The Fight For Free­dom Of In­for­ma­tion And Con­sumer Rights

By Michael R. Le­mov

Based on pre­vi­ously undis­closed ma­te­ri­als and in­ter­views with key play­ers of the time Peo­ple's War­rior tells the story of a stormy decade in Amer­ica, one in which key laws, such as the Free­dom of In­for­ma­tion Act and the Con­sumer Prod­uct Safety Act were en­acted by Congress, de­spite over­whelm­ing po­lit­i­cal op­po­si­tion. It is also the im­prob­a­ble story of one man's life and de­ter­mi­na­tion. Moss fought for twelve years, against three pres­i­dents and at times his own party, for a free­dom of in­for­ma­tion law that has stood the test of time and been copied around the world. Although at first stymied by spe­cial in­ter­ests, he won sweep­ing con­sumer pro­tec­tion re­forms. He went on to chal­lenge Wall Street in an in­tense bat­tle to en­act ma­jor new in­vestor pro­tec­tion laws. What hap­pened to Moss and his pro­gres­sive agenda in later decades, and what the fu­ture may bring for that agenda, make up the fi­nal part of this com­pelling story of a man and an era.

Con­sumer Cos­mopoli­tanism In The Age Of Glob­al­iza­tion

By Melvin Prince

This unique book fills a knowl­edge gap that has long been over­looked largely be­cause other re­lated mar­ket­ing ar­eas have over­shad­owed and over­looked the no­tion of cos­mopoli­tan con­sumers. Un­til the pub­li­ca­tion of this vol­ume, there has been no sin­gle au­thor­i­ta­tive source that di­rectly and com­pre­hen­sively cov­ers the field of con­sumer cos­mopoli­tanism. More­over, through orig­i­nal es­says by an all-star cast of con­trib­u­tors, the reader is in­tro­duced to a pow­er­ful new ap­proach to mar­ket­ing, eclec­ti­cally packed with novel ideas and in­sights that no­tice­ably ad­vance the mar­ket­ing field and bring it more fully into the age of glob­al­iza­tion.

Con­sumer ADR in Europe By Christo­pher Hodges, Iris Benohr & Naomi Creutzgeldt-Banda

This is the first sys­tem­atic com­par­a­tive study into how con­sumer al­ter­na­tive dis­pute res­o­lu­tion (ADR) sys­tems work, the dif­fer­ing na­tional ar­chi­tec­tures within which they op­er­ate, and how they can be im­proved. It de­scribes ADR schemes in France, Ger­many, Lithua­nia, the Nether­lands, Poland, Slove­nia, Spain, Swe­den, and the UK, as well as emerg­ing pan-EU dis­pute res­o­lu­tion schemes. The use of tech­niques of me­di­a­tion, con­cil­i­a­tion, and ad­ju­di­ca­tion are noted. The book also cov­ers EU mea­sures on con­sumer ADR, and the 2011 pro­pos­als for leg­is­la­tion on ADR and on­line dis­pute res­o­lu­tion.
