In their book Interactive Corporate Compliance, Jay Sigler and Joseph Murphy proposed a system in which government scrutiny of business is reduced in return for self-regulatory vigilance. In this follow-up collection of essays, Sigler and Murphy seek to meet the challenge of putting such a policy into practice. A series of essays detail a variety of suggestions for implementing such a system, as well as some forms of interactive compliance already in use. A brief foreword by John Braithwaite is followed by a chapter in which the editors fully explain the compliance approach to business-government relationships. Subsequent contributions include Attorney General Robert Abrams' three-part strategy for corporate compliance, a proposed legal standard to reward corporate due diligence in implementing codes of conduct, accounts of different experiments with interactive compliance in the United States, and a case study using interactive compliance to regulate restaurant health standards. Among the other topics discussed are programs that confront middle managers with corporate criminals, the educational failings of law and business schools, and insights into why negotiated compliance delivers better outcomes at lower costs. The volume concludes with predictions for corporate conduct in the 1990s. With its innovative approach to government-business relations, this work will be an important resource for professionals in all types of business, government, and legal positions.
This book describes in detail a unique and very precise operative technique that uses autologous cartilage/bone grafts for the reconstruction of load-bearing joint surfaces and for dowelling of non-unions. The technique, employing diamond instruments and a wet grinding process, has been developed and refined over the past 30 years at the Center for Orthopaedic Sciences (ZOW), first in Bern and later in Munich. A step-by-step description of the method is provided for each indication, with the aid of many high-quality illustrations. Correctly applied, the technique has been very successful in restoring high-level athletes to competition; it can be applied even in "hopeless cases" and offers excellent late results. This guide will be invaluable for orthopaedic surgeons wishing to master this proven and effective approach.
