Adapting the United Nations to a Post-Modern Era: Lessons Learned (Global Iss.
Palgrave Macmillan, UK, 2005. Softcover. Very Good Condition. 9781403917157 272 pages. Available Now. Book Description: We are living at a conjuncture of change and transition. Institutions of modernity, such as the United Nations system, are experiencing difficulties coping with symptoms of postmodernity. What is clear is that the challenges facing the world body are both epiphenomenal and structural. Unless this organization adapts to meet them, there is little hope of it becoming a relevant governance body in this millennium. Already we are witnessing signs that the United Nations is being bypassed as a meaningful contributor to global, regional and local problem-solving (witness Kosovo and more recently the war in Iraq) and is not adequately equipped to deal with the expanded global security problems. While the contributions here are committed to multilateral solutions, they stand outside traditional views on the United Nations in order to grapple with the lessons learned from the organizations experiences, failures and modest successes. : Review: '[A] well-balanced and informed collection of essays on the work and institutional structure of the United Nations. The book is well organized, with a theoretical component exploring institutional change based on the experience of the United Nations in more than five decades since its founding. many of those contributing to the study have been part of the work of the United Nations...[This] combination of insights and theoretical framework provides a thoughtful and important analysis for both the academic and the practitioner.' - Charlotte Ku, Executive Director of the American Society of International Law: '...a valuable source of critique, ideas and recommendations for change in the United Nations system...Its practical focus on the lessons that should be learned from recent United Nations activities makes it required reading for those involved or interested in the organization.' - Linda Reif, Professor, Faculty of Law, University of Alberta : About the Author: W. ANDY KNIGHT is Professor of International Relations in the Department of Political Science at the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada. He is the Editor of the journal Global Governance: A Review of Multilateralism and International Organizations. Among his recent books are Beyond the State: A Critical Re-evaluation of Canadian 'Foreign Policy, (with D.Black and C.T.Sjolander) and A Changing United Nations: Multilateral Evolution and the Quest for Global Governance.

Common Worlds and Single Lives: Constituting Knowledge in Pacific Societies.
Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, UK, 1998. First Edition, Hardcover. New. 9781859731642 424 pages. Available Now. Book Description: In Pacific societies, local knowledge, which has been accumulated over thousands of years and is irreplaceable, is rapidly disappearing. With the extinction of languages, the ability to observe and interpret the world from varying perspectives is also being lost. At the same time, an enormous body of knowledge about nature, plants and animals is vanishing. However, in parallel with this, the people of the Pacific are confronted with new modes of knowledge and newly introduced technologies through imported educational systems, missions of various denominations, and the media. They do not passively assimilate this knowledge but adopt, adapt, and apply it in a syncretistic way.These changes will have permanent effects on the individual lives of people in the region and their knowledge about themselves and their surrounding 'world'. This stimulating book tracks the course of these developments and offers revealing insights into the complexity of Pacific peoples' responses to the process of globalization. : Review: 'I found this volume worthwhile and often thought-provoking.'Anthropos'[This book] as much to offer anyone interested in ethnography as a way of knowing the world. It provides a convenient outline of the discipline's struggle with basic concepts and issues, as well as a rich array of ethnographic instances that lead to engaged reflection.'The Contemporary Pacific'It is not often that Pacific academia is blessed by the arrival of intellectually insightful books that attempt to probe the inner 'being' of the Pacific world ... As a collection of anthropological pieces, this book presents one of the most insightful attempts at analysing Pacific epistemologies.'The Journal of Pacific Studies : About the Author: Verena Keck Institute of Ethnology,University of Heidelberg Size: 14 x 2.2 x 21.6 cm. 424 pages.

Keys to Successful Immigration: Implications of the New Jersey Experience (Ur.
Ashgate Publishing Limited, UK, 1997. First Edition, Hardcover. Very Good Condition. 9781840141306 448 pages. Available Now. Book Description: American policies regarding immigration integration (as opposed to immigration itself) are handled state by state and vary widely across the country. From the example of New Jersey in the years 1980-1990, evidence is given here of how other states may manage a relatively smooth transition of their immigrant population into their economic, social and political mainstream. Particular attention is paid to the role economic climate may play, as the author believes it was significant in the case of New Jersey. It is suggested that in a state with lower unemployment rates and business failure rates, the fortunes of immigrants would be favoured and the attitudes of natives towards immigrants would be more benign. Elaborating on this theme, the author asks whether the continuing federal efforts to pursue macroeconomic growth may help state and local immigration integration. Size: 23cm. 448 pages.

Ashgate Publishing Limited, UK, 1998. First Edition, Hardcover. Very Good Condition. 9781859726815 260 pages. Available Now. Book Description: The emphasis upon difference, plurality and multiculturalism has led to an outpouring of information that has been interpreted by theories such as pragmatism, communitarianism, feminism, postmodern discourse and liberation ethics. Having the conception of communication in discourse theory as point of departure, scholars of distinct philosophical backgrounds move in and out of different contexts to offer a first-hand and in-depth account of the above positions in their dialogue with discourse theory, by establishing a web. This book seeks to show that pluralism and multiculturalism are to be found with philosophy itself. Size: 2.5 x 16.5 x 22.9 cm. 260 pages. Multiple copies available this title. Quantity Available: 5.

Ashgate Publishing Limited, UK, 2003. First Edition, Hardcover. Very Good Condition. 9780754631750 266 pages. Available Now. Book Description: The People's Republic of China (PRC) is a timely example of social policy reform in a socialist market economy. This edited collection brings together Chinese and Western experts to introduce and integrate policy issues of the PRC into the mainstream of cross-national social policy debate. Drawing upon comparativist expertise in relevant aspects of social policy, it explores the ways in which the PRC has or has not taken lessons from abroad in key social policy respects and illustrates policy-relevant relations between Chinese and Western perspectives. The contributors identify those aspects of China's social policy reforms that seem the most and least likely to appeal to Western societies. The collection therefore represents a substantial advance in two-way, East-West lesson learning in social and public policy. Size: 1.9 x 15.2 x 22.2 cm. 266 pages.

Avebury, UK, 1997. First Edition, Hardcover. Very Good Condition. 9781859723999 538 pages. Available Now. Book Description: Friends of the free society judge a social order by whether it promotes personal liberty. This text seeks to distinguish between voluntary orders like the market and coercive orders like the state, to examine the view that private property breeds order and that the market, logically and historically, precedes the state. In recent times, coercive structures have tended to crowd out voluntary institutions. The builders of the modern welfare democracy did not intend the coercive society into which it has developed. Voluntary private law has been gradually eroded and replaced by coercive public (state) law. Convention and custom reply on benign informal decentralized enforcement, statute law on insensitive centralized political enforcement. However, increasing mobile resources of wealth-creation and technological innovation have strengthened the market and its institutions. The powers of the state will shrink as they ease escape from its coercious. We live in increasingly liberating voluntary spontaneous societies with international commerce to reinforce freedom from coercive structures. Size: 3.2 x 15.9 x 22.9 cm. 538 pages.

ABBINK, JON
Meanings of Violence: A Cross-cultural Perspective
Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, UK, 2000. First Edition, Hardcover. New. 9781859734353 240 Pages. There are good reasons to look at violence from new perspectives. In its endless manifestations violence is part and parcel of human existence, and is very probably a constituting element of human society. And yet violent action - warfare, penalties, insults, feuding, assault, murder, rape, suicide, sports - remains in all its complexity one of the least understood fields of human social life.The book's contributors identify the symbolic and ritualized aspects of violence, and suggest ways of 'reading' violence as it occurs in the world, whether as violent duelling and age-group violence in Southern Ethiopia, bullfighting in Iberia, cattle rustling in Kenya, guerrilla and militia wars in Colombia, or public executions in China.These case studies suggest that 'violence' is not a simple, universal urge, but is contingent and context-dependent, shaped by social relations of power, force and dominance. To be the victim of violence is a humiliating and frightening experience. But the many ambiguities that occur in the use of violence must be considered, to understand why peace seems only to exist as a contrast to the violation of peace. Book Description: There are good reasons to look at violence from new perspectives. In its endless manifestations violence is part and parcel of human existence, and is very probably a constituting element of human society. And yet violent action - warfare, penalties, insults, feuding, assault, murder, rape, suicide, sports - remains in all its complexity one of the least understood fields of human social life.The book's contributors identify the symbolic and ritualized aspects of violence, and suggest ways of 'reading' violence as it occurs in the world, whether as violent duelling and age-group violence in Southern Ethiopia, bullfighting in Iberia, cattle rustling in Kenya, guerrilla and militia wars in Colombia, or public executions in China.These case studies suggest that 'violence' is not a simple, universal urge, but is contingent and context-dependent, shaped by social relations of power, force and dominance. To be the victim of violence is a humiliating and frightening experience. But the many ambiguities that occur in the use of violence must be considered, to understand why peace seems only to exist as a contrast to the violation of peace. : Review: 'This book [...] will be seminal with regard to future research and debate.' -- Anthropological Theory : About the Author: Goran Aijmer University of Gothenburg Jon Abbink Rijksuniversiteit Leiden Size: 14 x 1.4 x 21.6 cm. 240 pages.

Ashgate Publishing Limited, UK, 2003. First Edition, Hardcover. Very Good Condition. 9780754619369 352 pages. Available Now. Book Description: Contributing an impressive historical basis for path dependency analysis and the role of social capital in newly established democracies, this book offers a fascinating and ground-breaking analysis of the role of social capital in the democratic context of Eastern Europe. Focusing on Poland and Ukraine, this book fills the literature gaps for integrated empirical and theoretical research with respect to post-Communist democratization, social capital vs. democratization theory, and the case study area of Central and Eastern Europe. Suitable for students from graduate level upwards in Central and Eastern European studies, political theory and history. : Review: 'This book can be highly recommended to all those interested in understanding the deeper roots of the transformation process in Central and Eastern European countries. It is an excellent study of the interplay between the often neglected historical factors and contemporary political and economic developments. Additionally, its regional perspective reveals the previously unexplored complexity of the patches of development of social capital in the countries of the region.' Dr Tomasz Zarycki, Warsaw University, Poland 'This book represents a thought-provoking combination of original theoretical ideas, and a wealth of data on various aspects of the post-Communist political evolution in Poland and the Ukraine. Through an in-depth analysis of two cities, the authors are able to draw an unusually nuanced and multi-faceted picture of the democratization process.' Professor Christer Jonsson, Lund University, Sweden 'All historians of the region know that the fates of Poland and Ukraine have been closely tied over a millennium. Since 1991, for the first time in centuries, these two nations are living side by side as good neighbours and each in its own way is trying to build a post-Communist, democratic and pluralistic society. This is a remarkable study of two nations in their post-Communist eras - we need such works to allow a deeper understanding of a region well into its second decade on a new and uncharted path. This work is not only essential reading for social and political scientists, students of current affairs, and all those engaged in relations with Poland and Ukraine...it deserves to be read also by all those who want to get a deeper insight into two societies with so much of a common past and yet so very different.' Professor Roman Szporluk, Harvard University, USA 'The authors' in-depth analyses of trust at the local and national levels provide an important contribution to the existing literature on democratic consolidation, particularly for states where there is no historically transmitted democratic political culture.' Slavic Review '...it skillfully uses correlations and factor analysis to measure the significance of different variables in shaping people's trust...The authors are highly knowledgeable and adept in their respective fields...'

ABU-MADI, MAHER OMAR RUSHDI
Incentive Systems for Wastewater Treatment and Reuse in Irrigated Agriculture in the MENA Region, Evidence from Jordan and Tunisia
Routledge, UK, 2006. First Edition, Hardcover. New. 9789058097026 252 Pages. In the countries of the Middle East and Northern Africa, reclaimed wastewater is recognized as a non-conventional water resource. However, substandial amounts are still discharged into water courses without further treatment. The objective of this research was to analyse the technological, regulatory, institutional, financial and socio-cultural opportunities, seen as incentives; and the constraints, perceived as disincentives, which influence the adoption of wastewater treatment and reuse. Fieldwork was carried out in Jordan and Tunisia, countries which have made great strides in raising the proportion of re-used wastewater. Unexpectedly, farmers and customers proved well-prepared to use reclaimed water in irrigation, and to buy crops raised in the irrigated fields. Abu-Madi stresses the need for raising the price of freshwater, reflecting its true scarcity, thus creating a stronger incentive to utilise reclaimed wastewater. Book Description: Fieldwork conducted in Jordan and Tunisia collected data on wastewater treatment, agricultural irrigation and crop marketing and consumption. Size: 15.2 x 2.4 x 22.9 cm. 252 pages.

ALEXANDER, RONALD G.
The Self, Supervenience and Personal Identity
Ashgate Publishing Limited, UK, 1997. First Edition, Hardcover. Fine Condition. 9781859726037 176 Pages. Addressing the issue of personal identity by examining the possibility that a person is ascribed identity on the basis of having a supervenient self. Using the methods of non-eidetic phenomenology and analytic ontology, it argues that the self is supervenient on the physical and psychological properties of the human being. Understood in this manner, the self is perceived as not just a static entity, but reflects the temporal nature of the person. Rather than trying to find the ground of personal identity in a purported static or relatively stable feature of the human being such as the soul, spatio-temporal continuity, or consciousness, the author argues that the self is the pattern, character, or narrative identity that is the outcome of a person's decision making and actions. In addition, the text examines how the social role of a human being contributes to the structure of the self, interpreted in terms of morality and values. It differentiates between consciousness and the self, by using a Sartrean interpretation to clarify this distinction. The author concludes with an argument against the improper use of thought experiments that shapes the discussion of personal identity in a way that may pay insufficient attention to the temporal, social, and moral nature of the self.

The Structure of Value (Avebury Series in Philosophy)
Avebury, UK, 1993. First Edition, Hardcover. Very Good Condition. 9781856284585 170 pages. Available Now. Book Description: This new study of the general nature of value overcomes the conventional dichotomies of fact and value, metaphysics and axiology, and description and evaluation. It begins with the general notion of value, and gives examples from a range of types of value - organic, aesthetic, technical, cognitive - and concludes with a study of specifically moral values. It distinguishes and elaborates three dimensions of value (good, worthless, bad or counter-productive) and four categories of value (instrumental, foundational, ingredience, and performance and performer value). These categories of value are all founded upon the basic category of activity, and likewise types and groups of values arise from specific activites. The activities of living, consciousness and personal beings, and their products, are achievements, realizations of value. To describe them is necessarily to evaluate them. Activities provide the frames of reference whereby objects are evaluated. Human activities are evaluated by reference to the comprehensive activity of being human. And the foundation of moral value is the unique value essence that is each person. Size: 1.3 x 15.9 x 22.9 cm. 170 pages. Multiple copies available this title. Quantity Available: 2.

ALLINSON, ROBERT ELLIOTT
A Metaphysics for the Future.
Ashgate Publishing Limited, UK, 2001. First Edition, Hardcover. Fine Condition. 9781840149289 292 Pages. Back board is slightly marked. This work is intended to serve not only as an expression of a new idea of a philosophy, but as an apologia for philosophy as a legitimate and independent discipline in its own right. It argues that in the 20th century, truth has not been abandoned, but merely modified. The text proposes a return to truth and suggests that it is only after apprehending the truths of consciousness that the philosopher's mirror may become a kaleidoscope through which reality may be contemplated. First order truth lies in the realm of discovery, and discovery takes place only within the moment of subjective re-enactment.
