Dispatches from the Frontlines of Humanity at the Council of Europe

We are delighted to announce that one of our authors, Boštjan Videmšek, has been invited to speak at the Council of Europe on Thursday 20th June 2019 about his book Dispatches from the Frontlines of Humanity: A Book of Reportage. The 20th June is a particularly poignant day for this talk, and for Boštjan as it is both World Refugee Day, and the National Statehood Day of Slovenia.

Boštjan’s book is an in-depth reportage on some of the most defining issues of our time, namely the global refugee crisis, the conflicts displacing these masses of humanity, and the causes behind them. It is also an ode to the vanishing art of the long-form feature or reportage, which is disappearing because many media organisations can no longer afford it, or are unwilling to pay for this kind of time-consuming, on-the-ground journalism. It is essential to keep alive old-school reportage from the field because it provides a human face to the issues challenging our world. It helps pierce the bubble of propaganda with a needle of truth and, beyond the political and human, it is a beautiful art form in its own right. This book showcases a keen eye for the human story and a profound commitment to the human family. By telling the stories detailed here, it helps put a human face on the suffering that is too often viewed statistically and quantitatively.

Boštjan is a Slovenian journalist, war-correspondent, and playwright. He is the author of several books about wars, conflicts, migration, refugees, the Arab Spring, and the Greek financial crisis, including 21st Century Conflicts: Remnants of War(s). He has reported from all major conflicts in last 20 years, including those in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Darfur, South Sudan, Pakistan, Gaza, Libya, Somalia, and Kosovo.

Cambridge Scholars Publishing would like to wish Boštjan the best of luck with his talk, and we are certainly excited to see photos from the event.

The Story of Offshore Arctic Engineering (Short Review)

Please see below for Peter Noble’s assessment of Dan Masterson’s The Story of Offshore Arctic Engineeringa book that uniquely relates the human history and the technical innovations developed in this harsh environment through research, testing, and applying many existing engineering principles to ice structure analysis.


“Masterson, a pioneer in Offshore Arctic Engineering, has written a book that should be read by all interested in this field of endeavor. The Story of Offshore Arctic Engineering is written in a narrative style and is part professional biography and part technical reference book.

 I have know Dan and his work for over 3 decades, although our technical disciplines are different, he a civil/structural engineer and I am a naval architect and ocean engineer, we came together under the Arctic offshore engineering umbrella with a small cadre of colleagues who were able to enjoy the excitement and challenges of working on projects at both geographical and technical frontiers.  Dan’s book brought back great memories of these times.”


Dan Masterson received a Doctoral Degree in Civil Engineering from Queen’s University, Canada, in 1972, which led to work with the Foundation Company of Canada on breakthrough structural engineering analysis of ice strength. He has combined his engineering background and practical farming approach in his work on ice construction tests and design methods. He is also the author of over a hundred research papers on Arctic testing, theory and practical applications. His book is available for purchase on our website at this link.

The Best New Civil Law Book of 2019: Online Arbitration in Theory and in Practice

We are absolutely delighted to announce the feature of one of our newly published titles in the field of law: Online Arbitration in Theory and in Practice: A Comparative Study of Cross-Border Commercial Transactions in Common Law and Civil Law Countries, on BookAuthority. This site collates the mostly highly advocated books on business, technology and science (and law) as featured on CNN, Inc and Forbes. This book, authored by distinguished scholar of Private Law, practicing lawyer and chartered arbitrator: Dr Ihab Amro, comes in as the best new book concerning civil law.

To view the book on BookAuthority, please click this link. To find out more about this book, please click this link wherein Ihab discloses an in-depth overview of his opus.


This book presents an overview of online arbitration and electronic contracting worldwide, examining their national and international contexts, and assessing their ongoing relevance. It offers solutions to the salient challenges facing both online arbitration and electronic contracting, dealing first–hand with online arbitration as an online dispute resolution technique for solving both traditional and electronic commerce disputes that may arise out of the breach of contractual obligations in international commercial contracts, while also comparing between common law and civil law countries.

In the theory of law, this book analyses the international legal framework that regulates e–commerce, and its impact on electronic contracting, including Model Laws and International Conventions such as the Model Law on Electronic Commerce of 1996 and the Electronic Communications Convention of 2005. It also investigates whether the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods of 1980 ‘The CISG’ applies to e–commerce contracts. In addition, it extensively examines the possibility for the enforcement of online arbitration agreements and online arbitral awards under the New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards of 1958.

Regarding the practice of law, the volume examines how national courts apply both national laws and the New York Convention of 1958 when dealing with the enforcement of online arbitration agreements, and whether courts apply the provisions of national laws of arbitration liberally. As such, it encourages the adoption of a more liberal judicial regime in favour of the enforcement of online arbitral awards and online arbitration agreements in national courts.

This book represents a valuable resource for academics, arbitrators, practicing lawyers, corporate counsels, law students, researchers, and professionals who are willing to solve their cross–border commercial disputes through online arbitration.

The Da Vinci Globe – An Update

Professor Stefaan Missinne has made his debut on the Iberian Peninsula with a presentation and lecture at the University of Barcelona on May 29th 2019. Stefaan was promoting his book, The Da Vinci Globe.

Stefaan’s impressive presentation and lecture has inspired two articles to be written about it – one from Italian outfit, Ansa Latina, available to read here – and one from the Argentinian paper, El Intransigente, which can be found here. It is safe to say that The Da Vinci Globe has a truly global appeal.

This book brings the reader through a fabulous journey of scholars, maps, riddles, rebuses, iconographic symbols and enigmatic phrases such as HIC SVNT DRACONES to illuminate the da Vinci globe. It details 500 years of mystery, fine scholarship and expert forensic testing at numerous material science laboratories the world over.

The globe is hand-engraved in great detail on ostrich egg shells from Pavia by a left-handed Renaissance genius of unquestionable quality. It shows secret knowledge of the map world from the time of Columbus, Cabral, Amerigo Vespucci and Leonardo da Vinci. Central and North America are covered by a vast ocean. The da Vinci globe originates from Florence and dates from 1504. It marks the first time ever that the names of countries such as Brazil, Germania, Arabia and Judea have appeared on a globe.

The da Vinci globe now takes its rightful place, surpassing the Lenox globe, its copper-cast identical twin, as the most mysterious globe of our time. As such, this monograph is an essential text in Leonardo studies and in the history of cartography.

The Da Vinci Globe has also been subject to a glowing review recently from Vivian Louis Forbes (Adjunct Professor at the University of Western Australia) in The Globe (No. 85, 2019):

“This volume is an academic/scholarly masterpiece… It may also be considered a reference book on just one of the extensive and diversified talents of Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519). The book is expansively illustrated with over 400 maps, sketches, photographic reproductions of places, landscapes and artefacts. The author, a student of the late Italian historian Professor Carlo Pedretti – an expert on the life and works of Leonardo da Vinci – devoted nearly seven years to produce this magnificent volume, which is fact-filled and focuses on a single small globe: a globe measuring 112 millimetres in diameter, and which was crafted in about the year 1504 from the bottom halves of two ostrich eggs… Missinne took all necessary steps to have the globe scientifically analysed to confirm its originality and authenticity. The OEG was assessed and examined by more than 100 experts in cartography, history and the sciences. To prove that it was authentic the globe was tested in at least nine scientific laboratories throughout Europe… The globe was hand-engraved in great detail on two halves of ostrich egg shells that were sourced from Pavia, Italy, where an ostrich breeding place (Struzzeria) was located in the vicinity of the garden of the Visconti of Milan. The Struzzeria was the only known European source for unhatched ostrich eggs in the 14th and 15th centuries… In the words of da Vinci, a pre-modern artist: “Art is the queen of all sciences communicating knowledge to all the generations of the world” (p. 120)… Da Vinci’s aim was “to create an unprecedented three-dimensional miniature object, combined with imagination and precision” (p. 137)… Missinne states that the “most far-reaching conclusions are the chemical and mathematical ones, in that order” (p. 261) which he terms the ‘artistic forensics’ necessary to scrutinise the authorship of a work of art. A summary of the culminating material evidence based on the scientific examination of the different layers of meaning so typical of Leonardo’s creativity appears in Appendix I… The use of light and shade (chiaroscuro) in Leonardo’s drawing and painting is evident in the bathymetric and topographic features depicted on the globe… The iconographical evidence is quite a revelation. This volume will be welcomed by scholars of archival research, art, cartography, geography, history, spatial sciences, natural and physical sciences and it deserves a place on the bookshelf of personal and public libraries.”
