ISBN : 9780415518840.
128.5 TAY 138274
Death, Posthumous Harm, and Bioethics offers a highly
distinctive and original approach to the metaphysics of
death and applies this approach to contemporary debates
in bioethics that address end-of-life and post-mortem
issues. The author defends the controversial Epicurean
view that death is not a harm to the person who dies and
the neo-Epicurean thesis that persons cannot be affected
by events that occur after their deaths, and hence that
posthumous harms (and benefits) are impossible. He then
extends this argument by asserting that the dead cannot
be wronged, finally presenting a defense of revisionary
views concerning posthumous organ procurement.

Under what conditions are some developing countries able
to create stable democracies while others have slid into
instability and authoritarianism? To address this classic
question at the center of policy and academic debates,
The Promise of Power investigates a striking puzzle: why,
upon the 1947 Partition of British India, was India able
to establish a stable democracy while Pakistan created an
unstable autocracy? Drawing on interviews, colonial
correspondence, and early government records to document
the genesis of two of the twentieth century-s most
celebrated independence movements, the author refutes the
prevailing notion that a country-s democratization
prospects can be directly attributed to its levels of
economic development or inequality.

363.440954792 TAM 138281
This study focuses on the relationship between forms of
prostitution, discourses on law making, and law
enforcement practices. Across the 19th and early 20th
centuries, the colonial government in Bombay city
formulated laws on prostitution that were enormously
repetitive. This book argues that while the expansion of
Bombay-s sex trade over the past century might suggest
that laws were simply ineffectual, law making was instead
a productive process that sustained particular forms of
prostitution. In examining this dimension of colonial
governance,the author evaluates the uses and limits of
Foucault-s approach to law and sexuality.

Against world literature : on the politics of

viii, 358p. 24cm.
ISBN : 9781844679713.
800 APT 138343
The book engages in a polemical critique of recent
efforts to revive World Literature models of literary
studies (Moretti, Casanova, etc) on the grounds that they
construct their curricula on an assumption of
translatability. As a result, incommensurability and what
the author calls the -untranslatable- are insufficiently
built into the literary heuristic. Drawing on
philosophies of translation developed by de Man, Derrida,
Sam Weber etc., the aim is to activate Untranslatability
as a theoretical fulcrum of Comparative Literature with
bearing on approaches to world literature, literary world
systems and literary history, the politics of
periodization, the translation of philosophy and theory,
the bounds of non-secular proscription and cultural
sanction, free versus privatized authorial property, and
the poetics of translational difference.
