With human rights groups and businesses locked in a
stalemate, the challenges of regulating harmful corporate
practices in some of the world-s most difficult regions
have long seemed insurmountable. In 2005 the United
Nations appointed the author to examine the problem and
identify a path forward. He produced his "Protect,
Respect and Remedy" framework and "Guiding Principles" to
implement it, and these "Ruggie Rules" were endorsed
unanimously by the UN. They are being incorporated by
governments and companies around the world and are
employed by human rights and workers- groups. This book
shows how this powerful transformation came about and
what it means for governments, businesses and people

This book sheds new light on the nature of contemporary
Islamic discourse, identity, and community. The Internet
has profoundly shaped how both Muslims and non-Muslims
perceive Islam and how Islamic societies and networks are
evolving and shifting in the twenty-first century. While
Islamic society has deep historical patterns of global
exchange, the Internet has transformed how many Muslims
practice the duties and rituals of Islam.

This book explores the features that Al Qaeda and other
strands of militant Islam share in common with global
movements such as environmentalists and anti-
globalisation protesters. These include a decentralised
organisation and an emphasis on ethical rather than
properly political action. The author brings these and
other characteristics of Al Qaeda together in an analysis
of the jihad that locates it squarely within the
transformation of political thought after the Cold War.

Through the analysis of eighteenth- and early nineteenth-
century texts on the Hindu Kingdom of Kota in Rajasthan,
the author explores the ways in which historical
consciousness, or memory, is culturally constructed and
how this consciousness informs social experience. By
building on the premise that no society receives the past
in a transparent, universal and objective way, he
unravels how the past in Kota has been fashioned. His
analysis demonstrates how different styles of historical
interpretation sustain different regimes, and how
specific varieties of social and political activity are
founded upon these different perceptions of the past. In
this way, he suggests that different societies not only
establish different co-ordinates of value in their
constructions of the past, but also that the very
processes of social and political transformation differ
from society to society.

The author argues that new forms of militancy, such as
the actions of al-Qaeda, are informed by the same desire
for agency and equality that animates other humanitarian
interventions, such as environmentalism and pacifism. To
the militant, victimised Muslims are more than just
symbols of ethnic and religious persecution - they
represent humanity-s centuries-long struggle for
legitimacy and agency. Acts of terror, therefore, are
fueled by the militant-s desire to become a historical
actor on the global stage. Though they have yet to build
concrete political institutions, militant movements have
formed a kind of global society, and as the author makes
clear, this society pursues the same humanitarian
objectives that drives more benevolent groups.
