Moi, l’écrivain des faits et dits ci-après, ai résolu de les coucher sur ces feuillets,… afin que… tous mes frères bienveillants des âges qui s’écouleront après moy, puissent s’entretenir par accointance ou familiarité des choses qui sont miennes céans & dans mon temps, et qui, si elles ne leur procurent point plaisance, leur pourront être utiles dans leurs jours, étant donné notre commune humanité.Ainsi parle Evrard, seigneur d’Èthe, prévôt de la Renaissance, contemporain de François Ier. Il vit � la frontière du Royaume de France et des Pays-Bas, au sein du Duché de Luxembourg. Il nous entraîne, par petites séquences, dans les aventures quotidiennes de son existence : sa naissance en hiver, son éducation au village, son admiration pour son père sportif et son grand-père inventeur, sa scolarisation au collège des Jérômites de Liège, ses tâches diplomatiques auprès du Prince de Liège, son emploi de poète et espion � la Cour de Charles-Quint, sa vie amoureuse avec Iréna la flamboyante et Barbe aux yeux verts, son amitié avec les mystérieux chevaliers teutoniques.Le roman dessine avec soin et dans un langage fluide, toute l’atmosphère du XVIe siècle, avec la naissance de l’humanisme, la redécouverte des auteurs gréco-romains, les guerres d’Italie, l’éclosion du protestantisme, les sociétés secrètes, la vie des nobles et des paysans…Bref, un véritable voyage dans le temps, en compagnie d’un homme attachant.

Sponsorship is both a critical communications tool for sponsors as well as a fundamental revenue stream for rights owners. Market leaders use sponsorship widely and arguably more successfully than any other communications tool to achieve competitive advantage whilst events of all sizes depend on sponsorship just to exist. As the importance of sponsorship has increased the demands of it have risen too. Now sponsors seek measurable return on their investment. Sponsorship: For a Return on Investment provides a unique insight on the use of sponsorship for a return on investment and will appeal to practitioners and undergraduate and postgraduate students alike. It builds a conceptual framework for the development, planning, implementation and evaluation of strategies for sport, arts, music and community sponsorship, and from two perspectives: * For rights owners, the importance of effectively acquiring and then developing a bespoke approach for the recruitment of sponsors for effective sponsorship programmes. * For sponsors, a better understanding of how sponsorship can be used for successful integrated marketing communications. A broad selection of examples and case studies from around the world are provided in order to demonstrate the importance of sponsorship on an international basis. * The first text to cover in-depth, sponsorship in the sports and leisure industries. * Builds a conceptual framework for the development, planning, implementation and evaluation of sponsorship strategies for both sponsors and rights owners in the sports and leisure industries. * Essential reading for both students and practitioners across the sports and leisure sectors, who need to realise the potential of sponsorship as a critical marketing communications tool.

Property Law and Social Morality develops a theory of property that highlights the social construction of obligations that individuals owe each other. By viewing property law through the lens of obligations rather than through the lens of rights, the author affirms the existence of important property rights (when no obligation to another exists) and defines the scope of those rights (when an obligation to another does exist). By describing the scope of the decisions that individuals are permitted to make and the requirements of other-regarding decisions, the author develops a single theory to explain the dynamics of private and common property, including exclusion, nuisance, shared decision making, and decision making over time. The development of social recognition norms adds to our understanding of property evolution, and the principle of equal freedom underlying social recognition that limit government interference with property rights.
