political philosophy and epistemology.

The Caged virgin : an emancipation proclamation for women

Muslims who explore sources of morality other than Islam
are threatened with death, and Muslim women who escape
the virgins- cage are branded whores. So asserts Hirsi
Ali-s meditation on Islam and the role of women, the
rights of the individual, the roots of fanaticism, and
Western policies toward Islamic countries and immigrant
communities. This controversial book is a call to arms
for the emancipation of women from religious and cultural
oppression and from an outdated cult of virginity. It is
a defiant call for clear thinking and for an Islamic
Enlightenment. But it is also the courageous story of how
Hirsi Ali herself fought back against everyone who tried
to force her to submit to a traditional Muslim woman-s
life and how she became a voice of reform. She relates
her experiences as a Muslim woman so that oppressed
Muslim women can take heart and seek their own

Temporal matters in social psychology : examining the

American Psychology Association, 2003.
viii, 227p. , 26cm.
ISBN : 9781591470533.
304.23 MAC 142619
This book explores and ponders the ways in which temporal
matters affect how individuals, groups, and larger
collectives behave. It examines how people conceptualize
time and live within prescribed and personal timeframes
and how time is measured and enters into social
psychological phenomena at multiple levels, in different
functional roles, and as different types of processes.

Rienner Publishers, 2013.
xii, 189p. , 25cm.
ISBN : 9781588268648.
305.908 DAR 142616
This book offers a sweeping examination of disability
identity, tracing its history and parsing the shifting
forces that have shaped individual and societal
understandings of ability and impairment across time. The
author focuses on the relationship between societal views
and the self-conceptions of people with mental and
physical impairments. She also illuminates the impact of
the disability rights movement, life-course dynamics, and
race and gender in creating a diversity of disability
identities. Her seminal work reveals the remarkable
resilience of individuals in the face of profound social
and material barriers, at the same time that it enhances
our understanding of the construction and experience of
difference in our changing society.

Transnational financial regulation after the crisis /
Tony Porter.-- London: Routledge, 2014.
xv, 232p. ,23cm.
(Routledge/RIPE studies in global political economy, 38).
ISBN : 9780415822688.
332.1 POR 142018
This book examines the transnational response that relied
heavily on a set of relatively informal transnational
regulatory groupings that had been constructed over
previous decades. During the crisis these arrangements
were made stronger and more inclusive, but they remain
very complex. Thousands of pages of new rules have been
created by various transnational bodies, and the
implementation of these rules relies heavily on domestic
law and regulation and private rules and practices. This
book analyses this complex response, showing that its
overly technical and incremental character, the
persistence of tensions between transnational processes
and state-centred politics, and the ongoing power of
private actors, have made the regulatory response fall
short of what is needed.

London: Verso, 2014.

ISBN : 9781781681701.
335.01 LAC 142000
This book explores the specificity of social antagonisms
and answers the question "What is an antagonistic
relation?"--an issue which has become increasingly
crucial in our globalized world, where the proliferation
of conflicts and points of rupture is eroding their links
to the social subjects postulated by classical social
analysis. This leads the author to a second line of
questioning: What is the ontological terrain that allows
us to understand the nature of social relations in our
heterogeneous world?" This is a task he addresses with
theoretical instruments drawn from analytical philosophy
and from the phenomenological and structuralist

The aim of this book is to show how the two disciplines

crucial in forming an understanding of development work,
and to thinking about why policy recommendations can
often lead to severe and continuing problems in
developing countries.This book introduces development
economics to those coming from two different but linked
perspectives, economists and students of development who
are not economists. In both explaining and critiquing
development economics, the book is able to suggest the
implications of these findings for development studies,
and more broadly, for development policy and its

players (including judges, prosecutors, lawyers, and
legal academics) in the Chinese legal system. The fourth

196p. , 23cm.
ISBN : 9780745643540.
355.02 KAN 142017
The book introduces the ideas of major strategic thinkers
whose work explores the complex challenges associated
with the use of military force. Early chapters deal with
the foundational work of Sun Tzu (Sunzi), Thucydides,
Vegetius, Machiavelli and Carl von Clausewitz and their
relevance to problems facing Western militaries today.
The book then considers broader issues, such as the
distinctive importance of air and maritime operations,
the difficulty of waging offensive land warfare in the
face of modern firepower, the implications of nuclear
weapons, and the potential of irregular warfare. It
concludes by highlighting key themes which connect - and
distinguish - the works under consideration, noting how
these similarities and differences can inform the
strategic debates of the early twenty-first century.

dealings with systemic barriers for disabled people in

This book details what a sample can communicate about an
unknowable aggregate in a real situation. The author
lucidly develops and presents numerous approaches. He
details recent developments and explores fresh and unseen
problems, hitting upon possible solutions. The book
introduces sampling and discusses how to select a sample
for which a selection-probability is specified to
prescribe its performance characteristics. The author
then explains how to examine samples with varying
probabilities to derive profits. He then examines how to
use partial segments to make reasonable guesses about a
sample-s behavior and assess the elements of
discrepancies. The book highlights special survey
techniques needed to capture trustworthy data and put it
to intelligent use. It then discusses the model-assisted
approach and network sampling, before moving on to
speculating about random processes.

In Biloxi, Mississippi, a woman sues a tobacco company
for the death of her husband from lung cancer. The
protagonists are a jury fixer, that is a lawyer whose
role is to assure a jury favorable to the company, and a
rogue juror whom the fixer cannot eliminate or control.
This is a landmark tobacco trial with hundreds of
millions of dollars at stake which begins routinely, then
swerves mysteriously off course. The jury is behaving
strangely, and at least one juror is convinced he-s being
watched. Soon they have to be sequestered. Then a tip
from an anonymous young woman suggests she is able to
predict the jurors- increasingly odd behavior. Is the
jury somehow being manipulated, or even controlled? If
so, by whom? And, more important, why?

When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in

just thinks her husband has gone off by himself for a few
days--as he has done before--and she wants Strike to find
him and bring him home. But as Strike investigates, it
becomes clear that there is more to Quine-s disappearance
than his wife realizes. The novelist has just completed a
manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost
everyone he knows. If the novel were to be published, it
would ruin lives--meaning that there are a lot of people
who might want him silenced. When Quine is found brutally
murdered under bizarre circumstances, it becomes a race
against time to understand the motivation of a ruthless
killer, a killer unlike any Strike has encountered

his world is shaken as his cherished childhood memories
are challenged. He sets out in search of the
truth°discovering much about the end of empire, the state
of India today, and whether his father really was a
