303.6409051 BAD 137530
In the uprisings of the Arab world, the author discerns
echoes of the European revolutions of 1848. In both
cases, the object was to overthrow despotic regimes
maintained by the great powers-regimes designed to impose
the will of financial oligarchies. Both events occurred
after what was commonly thought to be the end of a
revolutionary epoch: in 1815, the final defeat of
Napoleon and in 1989, the fall of the Soviet Union. But
the revolutions of 1848 proclaimed for a century and a
half the return of revolutionary thought and action.
Likewise, the uprisings underway today herald a worldwide
resurgence in the liberating force of the masses-despite
the attempts of the -international community- to
neutralize its power.

304.28 WIJ 137134
This book shows us that we are in deep denial about the
magnitude of the global environmental challenges and
resource constraints facing the world. Despite growing
scientific consensus on major environmental threats as
well as resource depletion, societies are largely
continuing with business as usual, at best attempting to
tinker at the margins of the problems. The authors argue
that regardless of whether governments respond to the
economic crisis through additional stimulus packages or
reduced government spending, environmental and resource
constraints will remain. The crisis will be exacerbated
by the combination of climate change, ecosystem decline
and resource scarcity, in particular crude oil. The
concept of Planetary Boundaries is introduced as a
powerful explanation of the limits of the biosphere to
sustain continued conventional growth.

This book explains how towns and cities can turn real
estate development to their advantage to create the kind
of places where people want to live, work, relax and
invest. It contends that the production of quality places
which enhance economic prosperity, social cohesion and
environmental sustainability require a transformation of
market outcomes. The core of the book explores why this
is essential, and how it can be delivered, by linking a
clear vision for the future with the necessary means to
achieve it. Crucially, the book argues that public
authorities should seek to shape, regulate and stimulate
real estate development so that developers, landowners
and funders see real benefit in creating better places.

In this book, the author traces the ideological roots of
the Labor Party from its nineteenth century origins in
the Labor Movement, through the twentieth century, until
the years under Tony Blair. He claims that New Labor in
power evolved as a revisionist social democratic
government and traces its search for new political ideas
both to the New Right and Old Labor. Using interviews
with former Labor politicians, advisers and academics, he
presents an original and comprehensive analysis of
Laborts political philosophy.

In this book, the author argues that the notion of

the immense benefits it could and should have, not just
for western wealth, but for economies worldwide, for
international communication and for global democracy.

This book aims at giving the most complete description of
various characteristics of the intellectual property
rights (IPR) environment in a global context. The authors
believe a holistic understanding of the problem must
include consumer complicity to purchase counterfeit,
actions of the counterfeiters (pirates) as well as
actions (or inaction) by home and host governments, and
the role of international organizations and industry
alliances. Only after establishing how all the actors in
the IPR environment relate to one another can we describe
global protection of the intellectual property rights
environment and the managerial response of IPR owners
and/or industry associations to combat this ongoing

346.0664 PAC 137299
This book reappraises the existing framework for the
economic analysis of corporate law based on three
categories of private benefits of control. Some of these
benefits are not necessarily bad for corporate
governance. The areas of law mainly affecting private
benefits of control - including the distribution of
corporate powers, self-dealing, and takeover regulation -
are analyzed in five jurisdictions, namely the US, the
UK, Italy, Sweden, and the Netherlands. Not only does
this approach to corporate law explain separation of
ownership and control better than just investor
protection it also suggests that the law can improve the
efficiency of corporate governance by allowing non-
controlling shareholders to be less powerful.

The first full biography of Albert Einstein since all of
his papers have become available shows how his scientific
imagination sprang from the rebellious nature of his
personality. Biographer Isaacson explores how an
imaginative, impertinent patent clerk--a struggling
father in a difficult marriage who couldn-t get a
teaching job or a doctorate--became the locksmith of the
mysteries of the atom and the universe. His success came
from questioning conventional wisdom and marveling at
mysteries that struck others as mundane. This led him to
embrace a morality and politics based on respect for free
minds, free spirits, and free individuals. These traits
are just as vital for this new century of globalization,
in which our success will depend on our creativity, as
they were for the beginning of the last century, when
Einstein helped ushers in the modern age.

What is a natural habitat? Who can define what is natural
when species and ecosystems constantly change over time,
with or without human intervention? When a polluted river
or degraded landscape is restored from its damaged state,
what is the appropriate outcome? With climate change now
threatening greater disruption to the stability of
ecosystems, how should restoration ecologists respond?
This book addresses and challenges some of these issues
which question the core values of the science and
practice of restoration ecology. It analyzes the paradox
arising from the desire to produce ecological
restorations that fit within an historical ecological
context, produce positive environmental benefits and also
result in landscapes with social meaning.

In this book, author explores the changing business
landscape of the 21st century and what it means for
organizations. The key message is that we-re facing a
global paradigm shift driven by globalization, big data,
the super-smart computer, transparency and environmental
constraints. From a general business and management
point, the most important aspect of that shift is the
transition from an industry and service economy towards a
thought-driven economy, where efficient production plants
are replaced by thought cells, and thought productivity
as generators of wealth. Ideas, concepts and contacts are
the equivalents to natural resources, capital and
manpower. The winners in the thought economy are
companies producing the most breath-taking concepts or
the highest amount of -Aha!s- per hour.

In so doing, the papers develop some important new
competence perspectives on both traditional and
contemporary industry dynamics. Most approaches to
developing competence theory have adopted an -inside-out-
approach, i.e. micro-level analyses of sources of
organizational competence lead to theory that predicts

The mosque architecture of the Independent Sultanate

the most important element of the Islamic architecture of
Bengal. This distinctive regional style drew its
inspiration from the indigenous vernacular architecture
of Bengal, itself heavily influenced by Hindu temple
architecture. The early Muslim architecture of Bangladesh
is an important but little studied part of the

When a federal judge and his secretary fail to appear for
a scheduled trial and panicked clerks call for an FBI
investigation, a harrowing murder case ensues and
culminates in the imprisonment of a lawyer who imparts
the story of who killed the judge and why. Given the
importance of what they do, and the controversies that
often surround them, and the violent people they
sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history
of this country only four active federal judges have been
murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number
five. His body was found in the basement of a lakeside
cabin he had built himself and frequently used on
weekends. When he did not show up for a trial on Monday
morning, his law clerks panicked, called the FBI, and in
due course the agents found the crime scene. There was no
forced entry, no struggle, just two dead bodies, Judge
Fawcett and his young secretary. I did not know
Judge Fawcett, but I know who killed him, and why. I am a
lawyer, and I am in prison. It-s a long story.

From the double Man Booker prize-winner comes an
extraordinary work of historical imagination - this is
Hilary Mantel-s epic novel of the French Revolution.
Georges-Jacques Danton: zealous, energetic and debt-
ridden. Maximilien Robespierre: small, diligent and
terrified of violence. And Camille Desmoulins: a genius
of rhetoric, charming and handsome, yet also erratic and
untrustworthy. As these young men, key figures of the
French Revolution, taste the addictive delights of power,
the darker side of the period-s political ideals is
unleashed - and all must face the horror that follows.

The ghetto in which the Jews have been confined is being
liquidated by the Nazis, and eleven-year-old Hugo is
brought by his mother to the local brothel, where one of
the prostitutes has agreed to hide him. Mariana is a
bitterly unhappy woman who hates what she has done to her
life, and night after night Hugo sits in her closet and
listens uncomprehendingly as she rages at the Nazi
soldiers who come and go. When she-s not mired in self-
loathing, Mariana is fiercely protective of the
bewildered, painfully polite young boy. And Hugo becomes
protective of Mariana, too, trying to make her laugh when
she is depressed, soothing her physical and mental agony
with cold compresses.

This book confronts several basic assumptions about the
nature of history. Among these are the concept of
historical realism, the belief in representationalism and
the idea that the past possesses its own narrative. What
is offered in this book is a far-reaching and fundamental
rethinking of realist and representationalist thistory of
a particular kindt by addressing and explaining the ideas
of major philosophers of history over the past three
hundred years and those of the key theorists of today.
This book provides an accessible and radical history of
history while offering new insights into the pressing
questions of the nature, purpose and function of history.

This book is both the story of a young Namboodiri man and
that of a community, told in a style that is unique in
Malayalam. The narrative is in the form of interconnected
essays that invoke the tragic plight of the majority of
Brahmin households in Kerala, mired in convention and
ignorance and locate V.T. Bhattathiripad-s own self-
awakening in the collective struggle of committed
progressive young men and women. Though it is an
autobiographical narrative, the focus is on the society
as a whole and on the Namboodiri community in particular.
Besides the main text, the book includes an in-depth
interview that two historians conducted with the author
in his last year, and rare photographs related to the
author-s life and times.

South Asian History has enjoyed a remarkable renaissance
over the past thirty years. Its historians are not only
producing new ways of thinking about the imperial impact
and legacy on South Asia, but also helping to reshape the
study of imperial history in general. The essays in this
collection address a number of these important
developments, delineating not only the complicated
interplay between imperial rulers and their subjects in
India, but also illuminating the economic, political,
environmental, social, cultural, ideological, and
intellectual contexts which informed, and were in turn
informed by, these interactions.

This book seeks to answer some of the most fundamental
questions surrounding the conflict, including how this
avoidable conflict came about, why the war became so
drawn out and how the leadership of the opposing Generals
Ojukwu, who led the Biafran revolt and Gowon, who was
President of the Nigerian Federation, defined the
conflict. In the process, Gould offers a radical
reappraisal of the many entrenched conceptions which
currently surround the conflict.
