About this Item: MIT Press Ltd, United States, 2003. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Will the emerging global information infrastructure (GII) create a revolution in communication equivalent to that wrought by Gutenberg, or will the result be simply the evolutionary adaptation of existing behavior and institutions to new media? Will the GII improve access to information for all? Will it replace libraries and publishers? How can computers and information systems be made easier to use? What are the trade-offs between tailoring information systems to user communities and standardizing them to interconnect with systems designed for other communities, cultures, and languages? This book takes a close look at these and other questions of technology, behavior, and policy surrounding the GII. Topics covered include the design and use of digital libraries; behavioral and institutional aspects of electronic publishing; the evolving role of libraries; the life cycle of creating, using, and seeking information; and the adoption and adaptation of information technologies. The book takes a human-centered perspective, focusing on how well the GII fits into the daily lives of the people it is supposed to benefit. Taking a unique holistic approach to information access, the book draws on research and practice in computer science, communications, library and information science, information policy, business, economics, law, political science, sociology, history, education, and archival and museum studies.

About this Item: Dodo Press, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Sir Henry James Sumner Maine (1822-1888) was an English comparative jurist and historian, son of Dr. James Maine, of Kelso, Borders, Scotland. He is famous for the thesis, outlined in Ancient Law (1861), that law and society developed from status to contract. In the ancient world individuals were tightly bound by status to traditional groups, while in the modern one, in which individuals are viewed as autonomous beings, they are free to make contracts and form associations with whomever they choose. Because of this thesis, he can be seen as one of the forefathers of modern sociology of law. His prominent use of Roman law and the wide range of his observation have made his works as intelligible abroad as at home and thereby much valuable information. His other works include Village Communities (1871), Lectures on the Early History of Institutions (1875), Dissertations on Early Law and Custom (1883) and Popular Government (1885).

About this Item: Nordic Africa Institute, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. African states have responded to the challenges of the post-Cold War international system mostly by collectively promoting sub-regional and continental-wide initiatives in conflict resolution and peacebuilding. Admittedly, the existence of many violent conflicts in Africa, as well as their domino effects at the sub-regional level, contributed significantly to the growing desire for collective security systems and conflict management mechanisms. The broadening of the role and functions of African regional organisations to include responsibility for peacebuilding and conflict management generally adds credence to the efficacy of regional integration. Many issues, however, present themselves in the engagement of RECs with the peacebuilding process in Africa. Although primarily set up to promote economic integration, Africa s RECs have increasingly taken up a prominent role in conflict resolution and peace support operations, as evident in the recent peace processes in Burundi, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, Cote d Ivoire, Zimbabwe, Mali, Congo DRC, Sudan, and South Sudan, among others. In spite of the challenges they face, RECs are capable of playing important roles with regard to peace mediation, peacekeeping and peacebuilding. Victor Adetula is Head of Research at the Nordic Africa Institute, Sweden, and Professor of International Relations Development Studies at the University of Jos, Nigeria. Redie Bereketeab is Associate Professor of Sociology. He is currently working as senior researcher at the Nordica Africa Institute. He runs a research project on conflict and state building in the Horn of Africa. Olugbemi Jaiyebo is Senior Lecturer at the College of Law, Osun State University, Ifetedo, Nigeria. He is enrolled as a solicitor and advocate of the Supreme Court of Nigeria and is admitted to the Supreme Court of the State of New York, Appellate Division First Department and the United States District Court, Southern District of New York.

About this Item: Dodo Press, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Sir Henry James Sumner Maine (1822-1888) was an English comparative jurist and historian, son of Dr. James Maine, of Kelso, Borders, Scotland. He is famous for the thesis, outlined in Ancient Law (1861), that law and society developed from status to contract. In the ancient world individuals were tightly bound by status to traditional groups, while in the modern one, in which individuals are viewed as autonomous beings, they are free to make contracts and form associations with whomever they choose. Because of this thesis, he can be seen as one of the forefathers of modern sociology of law. His prominent use of Roman law and the wide range of his observation have made his works as intelligible abroad as at home and thereby much valuable information. His other works include Village Communities (1871), Lectures on the Early History of Institutions (1875), Dissertations on Early Law and Custom (1883) and Popular Government (1885).

About this Item: MIT Press Ltd, United States, 2003. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Will the emerging global information infrastructure (GII) create a revolution in communication equivalent to that wrought by Gutenberg, or will the result be simply the evolutionary adaptation of existing behavior and institutions to new media? Will the GII improve access to information for all? Will it replace libraries and publishers? How can computers and information systems be made easier to use? What are the trade-offs between tailoring information systems to user communities and standardizing them to interconnect with systems designed for other communities, cultures, and languages? This book takes a close look at these and other questions of technology, behavior, and policy surrounding the GII. Topics covered include the design and use of digital libraries; behavioral and institutional aspects of electronic publishing; the evolving role of libraries; the life cycle of creating, using, and seeking information; and the adoption and adaptation of information technologies. The book takes a human-centered perspective, focusing on how well the GII fits into the daily lives of the people it is supposed to benefit. Taking a unique holistic approach to information access, the book draws on research and practice in computer science, communications, library and information science, information policy, business, economics, law, political science, sociology, history, education, and archival and museum studies. It explores both domestic and international issues. The author s own empirical research is complemented by extensive literature reviews and analyses. Seller Inventory # BTE9780262523455

About this Item: New Generation Publishing, 2003. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. We weren t told about this at College! How often do you hear these words when newly qualified professionals go out into the world and actually start doing business? This excellent guide tells students what to do and what to avoid as building practitioners: looking at real estate, contracts, tendering, checks and quantities, estimates and costing, PR and languages, and the delicate subject of commission . Here the author, a respected Civil Engineer from the Lebanon, has golden advice - and some amusing anecdotes! Read his handbook, follow his recommendations, and put the cash you save in your bank account. Elie Sehnaoui, a Loughborough University and MIT-trained engineer, has written a fascinating and useful primer for young engineers and architects, as they prepare to launch their professional careers. He distills his long business experience working in Africa, the Middle East and Europe into a series of short chapters on contracts, public relations, project financing, real estate development, and engineering law. Sehnaoui s most powerful and salient piece of advice is that, in spite of the spread of globalization and English as the lingua franca of business, local traditions and cultures still matter. The engineers and architects most likely to succeed will be those who bother to familiarize themselves with the language and customs of the country or region in which they work. Civil engineers and designers can do no better than to carry this valuable field guide with them as they move from country to country and project to project. Prof. Philip S. Khoury Massachusetts Institute of Technology Elie Antoine Sehnaoui The author was educated in Lebanon, England, the United States, and France.

About this Item: Joshua Freistadt, United States, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Faced with growing visibly homeless populations, urban areas have adopted laws and policies targeting the activities poor people do in public spaces. This book provides an easy-to-read and empirically-grounded analysis of how homeless persons experience various policing efforts. The author uses field interviews with homeless adults in a major Canadian city to challenge broken windows policing, anti-panhandling bylaws, informal police relocations, and campaigns that attempt to dissuade donations to panhandlers. The stories of homeless adults are used to extend the theoretical contributions of pivotal human geography, sociology, critical race, and criminology scholars. The analysis reveals the human consequences of anti-homeless efforts and articulates how the policing of homelessness produces mobility patterns that maintain business interests and reinforce the racialization of city space. SHORTLISTED FOR THE INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE OF QUALITATIVE METHODOLOGY S BEST DISSERTATION AWARD! This book will interest sociology, socio-legal, human geography, and critical criminology students alongside anti-poverty activists. Seller Inventory # APC9780995808201

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. In January of 2010, the International Center of the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) assembled international experts and practitioners to assess the state of research on international organized crime (IOC). Two recent developments made this an opportune time for a working group to engage in a robust and critical reflection. The first was an expansion of IOC research. Although the number of books, journal articles and reports on IOC have steadily increased in recent years, the ways IOC research has expanded in other ways made this a good time to call such a meeting. For example, IOC research now goes beyond the traditional disciplines of criminology and sociology to include anthropology, economics, political science, history and other academic disciplines. Moreover, scholarly examination of IOC has gone beyond description and has increasingly focused on critical issues, such as how to improve the scientific rigor of IOC research. Last, this research now uses a mixture of methodologies, including historical, experimental, quantitative, qualitative and case study designs and increasingly implements international or comparative research designs to expand the geographical breadth of studies. Dovetailing with this growing interest in IOC research is an accelerating effort to develop new strategies to address the IOC threat in the United States. Although not limited to the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), the DOJ s efforts are indicative of how this effort is unfolding. In 2008, DOJ released the Law Enforcement Strategy to Combat International Organized Crime, which outlined steps to revise its efforts to address IOC. The Attorney General also reconvened the Organized Crime Council (AGOCC), an interagency body that coordinates Federal law enforcement activity against organized crime. In reconvening the AGOCC, which had not met for 15 years, the Attorney General asked that it oversee the implementation of the law enforcement strategy and directed it to focus more on the IOC threat. In 2009, DOJ continued to implement the law enforcement strategy with the formation of the International Organized Crime Intelligence and Operations Center (IOC-2). Through IOC-2, DOJ and other federal agencies are now able to marshal the resources and information of nine U.S. law enforcement agencies and numerous federal prosecutor offices nationwide. The Expert Working Group (EWG) advanced NIJ s efforts to meet two goals. First, NIJ fostered a new level of cooperation between researchers and practitioners. Although the level of participation in the EWG is a measure of this new cooperation, so too are the number of contacts that have continued after the meeting. Second, NIJ has been able to identify promising agendas for the IOC research community and for federal practitioners. This report provides the IOC research community with suggestions from the research and practitioner communities that can help steer the direction of IOC research for years to come. NIJ has tasked the EWG to explore seven areas of IOC research, using a three-part rubric consisting of the quality of existing research, the most promising research agendas, and the most problematic methodological or programmatic obstacles (see Appendix A). The first issue was to examine what what we know about IOC. The group conducted a summary of existing IOC research and assessed its general qualities and its gaps. The second issue was to probe what IOC research should be pursued? This led into an important discussion about the impact that suggested research agendas could have on policy and practice. Last, and most important, the question of how to accomplish such research was addressed. The group identified the most effective research methods, explored what data was needed, and named the barriers that would impede these studies as well as ways to circumvent or mitigate them.

About this Item: AK Press, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. It is perhaps no surprise that as Israel drifts towards repression and reaction within, and becomes increasingly isolated internationally as a result of the harsh and criminal occupation, its informal lobby in the US becomes more desperate to stifle free and open discussion of the state they seek to protect. Efforts of the kind sampled here . . . are as deplorable as they are predictable, and should be dismissed with contempt, and strongly opposed. --Noam Chomsky These testimonials provide a stunning and all too familiar portrait of the extent to which the forces that suppress free speech and academic freedom are at work in the US university system to stifle those who would call for social justice in Palestine. . . . These voices must be heard. --Bishop Desmond Tutu As criticism mounts over Israel s violation of Palestinian human rights and international law, campaigns to silence and repress those who speak out against Israeli apartheid and US complicity have grown alarmingly. Scholars have been denied jobs, refused tenure and promotion, rejected for funding, and expelled from institutions, while student organizations have faced harassment and sanctions. We Will Not Be Silenced offers thirteen powerful, firsthand testimonials from scholars and students whose struggle to defend their academic freedom and free speech has garnered widespread public and international attention. William I. Robinson is professor of sociology, global and international studies, and Latin American studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Maryam S. Griffin is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California, Davis. Seller Inventory # AAS9781849352765

About this Item: AK Press, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. It is perhaps no surprise that as Israel drifts towards repression and reaction within, and becomes increasingly isolated internationally as a result of the harsh and criminal occupation, its informal lobby in the US becomes more desperate to stifle free and open discussion of the state they seek to protect. Efforts of the kind sampled here . . . are as deplorable as they are predictable, and should be dismissed with contempt, and strongly opposed. --Noam Chomsky These testimonials provide a stunning and all too familiar portrait of the extent to which the forces that suppress free speech and academic freedom are at work in the US university system to stifle those who would call for social justice in Palestine. . . . These voices must be heard. --Bishop Desmond Tutu As criticism mounts over Israel s violation of Palestinian human rights and international law, campaigns to silence and repress those who speak out against Israeli apartheid and US complicity have grown alarmingly. Scholars have been denied jobs, refused tenure and promotion, rejected for funding, and expelled from institutions, while student organizations have faced harassment and sanctions. We Will Not Be Silenced offers thirteen powerful, firsthand testimonials from scholars and students whose struggle to defend their academic freedom and free speech has garnered widespread public and international attention. William I. Robinson is professor of sociology, global and international studies, and Latin American studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Maryam S. Griffin is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California, Davis. Seller Inventory # AAS9781849352765

About this Item: Dodo Press. Paperback. Condition: New. 148 pages. Dimensions: 8.8in. x 5.9in. x 0.5in.Sir Henry James Sumner Maine (1822-1888) was an English comparative jurist and historian, son of Dr. James Maine, of Kelso, Borders, Scotland. He is famous for the thesis, outlined in Ancient Law (1861), that law and society developed from status to contract. In the ancient world individuals were tightly bound by status to traditional groups, while in the modern one, in which individuals are viewed as autonomous beings, they are free to make contracts and form associations with whomever they choose. Because of this thesis, he can be seen as one of the forefathers of modern sociology of law. His prominent use of Roman law and the wide range of his observation have made his works as intelligible abroad as at home and thereby much valuable information. His other works include Village Communities (1871), Lectures on the Early History of Institutions (1875), Dissertations on Early Law and Custom (1883) and Popular Government (1885).
