Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards in Russia presents issues peculiar to the Russian legal system and legal culture generally. The culmination of perhaps years of arbitration, enforcement of arbitral awards is a crucial element of arbitration and a subject best not taken lightly or left to the last minute. The Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards in Russia parses the judgments of Russian courts, with a particular focus on the decision-making processes of Russian judges as reflected in their judgments. The Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards in Russia addresses several questions, such as: • Which Russian courts enforce awards and what are they like? • What laws, treaties, and rules apply? • How do the courts reach their decisions? • Do those courts sometimes reach anomalous conclusions? • What should an applicant for enforcement watch out for? • What are the common pitfalls? With the help of Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards in Russia non-Russian readers will be able to ask intelligent questions, earlier rather than later, of the local counsel who will be making an application for enforcement in the Russian courts.
This book explores the intersection between adaptation studies and what James F. English has called the “economy of prestige,” which includes formal prize culture as well as less tangible expressions such as canon formation, fandom, authorship, and performance. The chapters explore how prestige can affect many facets of the adaptation process, including selection, approach, and reception. The first section of this volume deals directly with cycles of influence involving prizes such as the Pulitzer, the Man Booker, and other major awards. The second section focuses on the juncture where adaptation, the canon, and awards culture meet, while the third considers alternative modes of locating and expressing prestige through adapted and adaptive intertexts. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of adaptation, cultural sociology, film, and literature.
