The book explores the relationship between Muslims, the Common Law and Shari'ah post-9/11. The book looks at the accommodation of Shari'ah Law within Western Common Law legal traditions and the role of the judiciary, in particular, in drawing boundaries for secular democratic states with Muslim populations who want resolutions to conflicts that also comply with the dictates of their faith. Salim Farrar and Ghena Krayem consider the question of recognition of Shari'ah by looking at how the flexibilities that exists in both the Common Law and Shari'ah provide unexplored avenues for navigation and accommodation. The issue is explored in a comparative context across several jurisdictions and case law is examined in the contexts of family law, business and crime from selected jurisdictions with significant Muslim minority populations including: Australia, Canada, England and Wales, and the United States. The book examines how Muslims and the broader community have framed their claims for recognition against a backdrop of terrorism fears, and how Common Law judiciaries have responded within their constitutional and statutory confines and also within the contemporary contexts of demands for equality, neutrality and universal human rights. Acknowledging the inherent pragmatism, flexibility and values of the Common Law, the authors argue that the controversial issue of accommodation of Shari'ah is not necessarily one that requires the establishment of a separate and parallel legal system.

This volume looks at how accumulation in postcolonial capitalism blurs the boundaries of space, institutions, forms, financial regimes, labour processes, and economic segments on one hand, and creates zones and corridors on the other. It draws our attention to the peculiar but structurally necessary coexistence of both primitive and virtual modes of accumulation in the postcolony. From these two major inquiries it develops a new understanding of postcolonial capitalism. The case studies in this volume discuss the production of urban spaces of capital extraction, institutionalization of postcolonial finance capital, gendering of work forms, establishment of new forms of labour, formation of and changes in caste and racial identities and networks, and securitization-and thereby confirm that no study of contemporary capitalism is complete without thoroughly addressing the postcolonial condition. By challenging the established dualities between citizenship-based civil society and welfare-based political society, exploring critically the question of colonial and postcolonial difference, and foregrounding the material processes of accumulation against the culturalism of postcolonial studies, this volume redefines postcolonial studies in South Asia and beyond. It is invaluable reading for students and scholars of South Asian studies, sociology, cultural and critical anthropology, critical and praxis studies, and political science.

  • Evaluative summary and conclusion.
Over recent decades, the responsibility for the past actions of the European colonial powers in relation to their former colonies has been subject to a lively debate. In this book, the question of the responsibility under international law of former colonial States is addressed. Such a legal responsibility would presuppose the violation of the international law that was applicable at the time of colonization. In the 'Scramble for Africa' during the Age of New Imperialism (1870-1914), European States and non-State actors mainly used cession and protectorate treaties to acquire territorial sovereignty (imperium) and property rights over land (dominium). The question is raised whether Europeans did or did not on a systematic scale breach these treaties in the context of the acquisition of territory and the expansion of empire, mainly through extending sovereignty rights and, subsequently, intervening in the internal affairs of African political entities.

  • Assemblages of feedback and service
  • The acquisitions assemblage : putting it all together.
"As a discipline, acquisitions encompasses everything from purchasing and budgeting to enabling access to materials; and every format from books, monographs, and serials to e-books, subscription-based electronic resources, and beyond. In this guide, Holden boils it to down to its essentials while providing a strategic framework that introduces and integrates all aspects of acquisitions. Using a holistic, hands-on approach that�s as useful for working librarians as for those studying the profession, this book provides an overview of acquisitions as a library profession, with a discussion of basic competencies, notions of ethics, and the organizing principle of “assemblage”; lays out a robust conceptual framework that unifies disparate aspects of acquisitions work and synthesizes its practical aspects; thoroughly examines content acquisitions in all formats, with an in-depth look at digital materials; covers such important trends as the rise of e-books, the ramifications of mobile devices as a mode of content access and interaction, demand-driven acquisition, and shifting expectations regarding paid-for content; tracks advancements in technology, including the widespread implementation of discovery services for content searching; underscores the responsive service component of acquisitions as informed by user expectations, community feedback, and usage standards such as COUNTER and SUSHI; addresses budgetary issues such as changes in services offered by vendors and subscription agents, and the emergence of a “new normal” for budget constraints and expectations resulting from the recession; and looks ahead to what anticipated changes to acquisitions means for the future Presenting a model that�s both comprehensive and flexible, Holden demonstrates how technical competencies and ethical imperatives can inform the day-to-day workflow of acquisition librarians"--Publisher's website.

Through the infamous divorce of her parents, Ada Lovelace became the most talked-about child in Georgian Britain. This riveting biography tells the extraordinary yet little known story of her life and times-when mathematics was as fashionable as knitting among women and Ada became the world's first computer programmer. But for her era's view on gender, Ada would single-handedly have started the digital age more than two centuries ago.

"Drawing on over forty years of clinical and research experience, Paul Wender and new coauthor David A. Tomb have created a classic, definitive model for identifying and treating children and adults who have Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). ADHD: Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in Children and Adults, Fifth Edition offers insights into the progression of ADHD to those at any age and describes the best treatment. Wender and Tomb stress that drug therapy remains the most effective in treating the disorder, but psychological techniques, when combined with medication, can produce further improvement. In addition, extensive first-hand accounts from men, women, and children offer dramatic insight into what it feels like to have, and to receive medical treatment for, ADHD. Throughout, the book contains valuable information on where to seek help and what kinds of diagnostic tests exist and how reliable they are, as well as comprehensive instructions and rating scales to help parents best help their child and to help adults self-screen for the disorder. This concise and fully revised volume is a practical tool for individuals at any age, parents and teachers of children with ADHD, and clinicians."-- Provided by publisher.
"In a discussion of ADHD treatments, Wender and Tomb stress that drug therapy remains the most effective in treating the disorder. They add, however, that psychological techniques, when combined with medication, can produce further improvement. Wender and Tomb offer practical, comprehensive instructions on how parents of an ADHD sufferer can best help their child. Now a classic work, ADHD grants parents and adults whose lives have been touched by this disorder an indispensable source of help, hope, and understanding"-- Provided by publisher.
