An essential tool for understanding the Middle East and its pivotal role in global politics, this book lays bare the complexity of the region - its emergence from fallen empires, the shaping of its current contours by oil and outside intervention, the wave of change that broke in 2011, and the violence that has swept the region since. With his customarily acute analysis, Dan Smith, author of The State of the World Atlas,uncovers the web of fault-lines that underlies the Middle East. Using maps and graphics, he demonstrates why recent events have occurred and why they have an impact on us all. This atlas explores and lays bare the complexity of the region, looking at how it emerged out of the history of fallen empires, how oil and outside intervention have shaped its current contours, where it stood as the wave of change broke in 2011, and the impact of violent conflict throughout. It uses maps, graphics, chronologies and analysis to offer a fair and tough-minded look at what lies behind a moment of change and hope.

Research Handbook on Eu Institutional Law (Hardcover): Adam Lazowski, Steven Blockmans Research Handbook on Eu Institutional Law (Hardcover)
Adam Lazowski, Steven Blockmans
R4,457 Discovery Miles 44 570 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Research Handbook on EU Institutional Law offers a critical look into the European Union: its legal foundations, competences and institutions. It provides an analysis of the EU legal system, its application at the national level and the prevalent role of the Court of Justice. Throughout the course of the Handbook the expert contributors discuss whether the European Union is well well-equipped for the 21st century and the numerous crises it has to handle. They revisit the call for an EU reform made in the Laeken Conclusions in 2001 to verify if its objectives have been achieved by the Treaty of Lisbon and in daily practice of the EU institutions. The book also delves into the concept of a Europe of different speeds, which - according to some - is inevitable in the EU comprising 28 Member States. Overall, the assessment of the changes introduced by the Lisbon Treaty is positive, even if there are plenty of suggestions for further reforms to re-fit the EU for purpose. Students and scholars will find this original Handbook to be an invaluable resource, particularly due to its focus on topics for future discussion. Researchers and policy-makers will also benefit from the points raised in this book.

The Madonna of Excelsior (Paperback): Zakes Mda The Madonna of Excelsior (Paperback)
Zakes Mda
R213 R189 Discovery Miles 1 890 Save R24 (11%) Shipped within 4 - 9 working days

This novel is set in the Free State town of Excelsior from the 1970s to the time of political liberation in the 1990s. In the 1970s Excelsior was notorious for a series of across-the-colour-bar sex scandals involving white men - many of them pillars of the conservative Afrikaner establishment - and black women, some of whom bore mixed-race children as a result. Mda roots his story in this period and carries it through to the social and political revolution of the 1990s. Often lyrical and sensual, and sometimes bleak and shocking, the novel is always an acute and authentic reflector of small-town South Africa and its extraordinary mix of people in the years of high apartheid and in its untidy aftermath.

Black Plaques London - Memorials to Misadventure (Paperback): John Ambrose Hide Black Plaques London - Memorials to Misadventure (Paperback)
John Ambrose Hide
R308 R238 Discovery Miles 2 380 Save R70 (23%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Black Plaques are not to be found proudly mounted on a wall - and for good reason. What with their commemoration of a brutal execution outside Westminster Abbey, the selling of sex toys in St James's Park, and an intruder at Buckingham Palace with Royal undergarments stuffed down his trousers, this is not the sort of historical subject matter authorities choose to grace a building's facade or depict on a visitor information board. In fact, many people might hope such indecorous and inconvenient episodes remain quietly overlooked. But this book jogs such artful lapses of memory and at one hundred and fifty locations across London, Black Plaques lift the carefully placed rug to discover a big stain. The unseemly blemishes brought to light recall moments when mankind was not enjoying its finest hour, so there are scenes every reader should find disturbing.

Handbook of the International Political Economy of Production (Paperback): Kees van der Pijl Handbook of the International Political Economy of Production (Paperback)
Kees van der Pijl
R909 Discovery Miles 9 090 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The Handbook of the International Political Economy of Production offers a comprehensive, state-of-the-art overview of the changing world of global production. The book explores the topic in a range of directions, including the human material `used' in production across the globe and alternatives proposed from different quarters. Chapters cover the geography of why and where jobs are moving in both manufacturing and services. The doubling of the world's available labour supply after the opening up of the planned economies in Europe and Asia has sharply tilted the balance of power towards giant corporations. Labour and the politics of work is analysed in a number of key countries. Possible signs of a recovery of organized labour's negotiating power on this vastly expanded playing field are discussed in separate chapters, and a complete overview is provided of labour research networks currently active. This important volume addresses topics relating to the human and natural basis on which production rests, from the consequences of the exploitation of the body and mind to sex work, biotechnology, and the prospects for ecological re-balancing. Written by a team of authors from fourteen different countries and comprising some of the biggest names in contemporary social science as well as topical specialists, this Handbook will prove a critical resource to political economists at all levels, trade unionists and NGO activists in the labour and human rights sphere, politicians and journalists.

Matthew Harding
R5,057 Discovery Miles 50 570 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Recent trends in the social, economic and political lives of many communities have created new challenges for the not-for-profit sector, which, in turn, have demanded new legal and regulatory responses. This Research Handbook takes account of these developments, providing a thorough insight to current scholarship in the field of not-for-profit law. Contributions from both established and emerging scholars reflect a variety of disciplinary and jurisdictional perspectives. A range of topics relating to the not-for-profit sector are explored, including: the sector's composition and scope, the legal conception of charity, the tax treatment of not-for-profits and their supporters, and the regulation of not-for-profits. The Research Handbook also examines the often-neglected topic of not-for-profits and the constitution. This interdisciplinary Research Handbook makes a seminal contribution to defining not-for-profit law as a distinctive field of study, and in doing so, lays a strong foundation for future research. Scholars working on not-for-profit studies, whether in law, economics, sociology, philosophy, political science or business management, will find this a compelling body of work as it covers all aspects of not-for-profit law. Those working within the sector, or providing legal advice to the sector, will also find this Research Handbook to be an indispensable source of information.

These widely anticipated volumes comprehensively treat the nearly 1600 species of birds that can be found in mainland Ecuador. The authors describe Ecuador this way:

"One of the wonders of the natural world. Nowhere else is such incredible avian diversity crammed into such a small country....Birds are, happily, numerous in many parts of Ecuador: even the downtown parks of the big cities such as Quito and Guayaquil host their complement".

Volume I, Status, Distribution, and Taxonomy, contains detailed information on the ecology, status, and distribution of all species. Introductory chapters deal with geography, climate, and vegetation; bird migration in Ecuador; Ecuadorian ornithology; endemic bird areas in Ecuador; and conservation. Individual species accounts treat habitat, distribution, and taxonomy.

Volume II, Field Guide, contains 96 full-color plates and facing pages of descriptive text, a color map of Ecuador, 2 line drawings of bird anatomy, 115 silhouette outlines, and nearly 1600 distribution maps. All species are illustrated in full color, including migrants and vagrants and visually distinctive subspecies. The text focuses on the field identification aspects of each species, including their behavior, vocalizations, and nest appearance.

The objective of this Atlas is to contribute to the knowledge of morphological findings of the main cardiovascular diseases among the various specialists who deal with people affected of heart diseases: cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons, clinical and forensic pathologists, coroners, sports medicine doctors. The interest in cardiovascular pathology, neglected for years in many countries, is increasing worldwide and we are witnessing the revitalization of a discipline, which, in collaboration with clinicians, is making great contributions to the fight against heart diseases and sudden-unexpected deaths. This atlas of cardiovascular diseases is the result of close collaboration between Spanish specialists in cardiology and in cardiovascular pathology and describes the clinical and pathologic features (gross and histopathologial) of major cardiovascular diseases in adults, especially those acquired, but also treat relevant congenital anomalies. This book contains 635 images, 78 tables and graphics distributed in 12 chapters across the spectrum of diseases that can be found in each of the structures of the cardiovascular system (aorta, pulmonary vessels, coronaries, valves, myocardium, pericardium and conduction system). The coordinated work of forensic pathologists from different cities in Spain and cardiologists (primarily from the Hospital Universitario Puerta de Hierro de Madrid) has assembled in all chapters their two worlds (forensic pathology and cardiology) to achieve a practical work with the aim to serve as a practical tool for multiple specialists.

Adolfo Paolini
R785 Discovery Miles 7 850 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The 2008 financial crisis brought increased scrutiny to the ways in which the directors of the world's major financial institutions handle their duties and how they impact investors, shareholders and consumers. In this comprehensive Handbook, leading scholars from around the world explore the nature of the relationship between a company and its directors, assessing issues such as how duties are discharged, what liabilities may arise and whose interests directors should consider before embarking on commercial ventures. The Handbook begins with chapters that explore the range of company law developments in several common law countries, with further chapters examining the law in several civil law jurisdictions. The Handbook then looks beyond company law to issues such as the role of directors in fostering corporate social responsibility and directors' duties to consumers. The final chapters consider directors' duties in times of financial turmoil. A comprehensive and ground-breaking book of original scholarly research, the Handbook will be a valuable contribution to the libraries of company law scholars and students, as well as to business people with a professional interest in the topic.
