In this book the phenomenon of rent is reconsidered as the foundation of the economic and political life of contemporary societies. The dominant economic theory is consistently excluding rental relations from the existing descriptions of contemporary societies, since rent exposes most clearly the mechanisms of hegemony of the ruling class. As a result, rent became a blind spot of economic theory, a phenomenon described as anachronism.
However, current trends in the global evolution of capitalism, market economy, and democracy indicate the strengthening of their rental grounds. The crisis of free markets, the transformation of labor society, the exclusion of man from all technological chains and the growth of politically determined inequalities in social groups reveal the contours of a new rental society that is being born here and now — in the shadow of capitalism, labor and democracy.
The book is addressed to economists, political scientists, sociologists, philosophers, as well as anyone interested in the problems of the sociopolitical development of the contemporary world and Russia.
In this monograph, the authors, who have many years of law-making, expert and academic experience, analyse the main issues of the practice of applying and amending the norms of the Administrative Offences Code of the Russian Federation (adopted in 2001) and the new version of it, for the purposes of implementing the third codification of administrative and tort law. The most important areas of the reform of the system of the legislation concerning administrative offences of the Russian Federation and its constituent entities are substantiated. A theoretical justification is put forward of concepts of administrative liability and administrative and tort law. Contentious aspects of the relationship between administrative liability and criminal liability are considered, as are the existing models of the legislative regulation of public liability in foreign countries, while the genesis of the institution of minor crimes in the Russian law and legislation of the 19th and 20th centuries is also examined. The nature of existing models for the legal regulation of administrative liability in foreign countries is set out.
The monograph is intended for practising lawyers, parliamentarians, officials in federal and local government agencies, undergraduate and graduate students as well as professors of state law in law schools.
The book is intended for professional economists and politicians, as well as experts in the field of contemporary problems of the global and Russian economies.
The book addresses philologists and historians.
