Corporate Human Rights Violations: Global Prospects for Legal Action

Stefanie Khoury & David Whyte

Corporate Human Rights Violations: Global Prospects for Legal Action by Stefanie Khoury & David Whyte

This book develops an analysis of the historical, political and legal contexts behind current demands by NGOs and the United Nations Human Rights Council to hold corporations accountable for their human rights violations. Based on an analysis of the range of mechanisms of accountability that currently exist, it argues that that those demands are a response to the failure of neo-liberal policies that have dominated the practice of politics and law since the emergence of this debate in its current form in the 1970s.   

Offering a new approach to understanding how struggles for hegemony are...

The Small Gulf States: Foreign and Security Policies before and after the Arab Spring

Khalid S. Almezaini

The Small Gulf States: Foreign and Security Policies before and after the Arab Spring by Khalid S. Almezaini

Small states are often believed to have been resigned to the margins of international politics. However, the recent increase in the number of small states has increased their influence and forced the international community to incorporate some of them into the global governance system. This is particularly evident in the Middle East where small Gulf states have played an important role in the changing dynamics of the region in the last decade.

The Small Gulf States analyses the evolution of these states' foreign and security policies since the Arab Spring. With particular focus on Oman, Qatar...

Cybercrime Through an Interdisciplinary Lens

Thomas J. Holt

Cybercrime Through an Interdisciplinary Lens by Thomas J. Holt

Research on cybercrime has been largely bifurcated, with social science and computer science researchers working with different research agendas. These fields have produced parallel scholarship to understand cybercrime offending and victimization, as well as techniques to harden systems from compromise and understand the tools used by cybercriminals. The literature developed from these two fields is diverse and informative, but until now there has been minimal interdisciplinary scholarship combining their insights in order to create a more informed and robust body of knowledge.

The Signifying Power of Pearl: Medieval Literary and Cultural Contexts for the Transformation of Genre

Jane Beal

The Signifying Power of Pearl: Medieval Literary and Cultural Contexts for the Transformation of Genre by Jane Beal

This book enhances our understanding of the exquisitely beautiful, fourteenth-century, Middle English dream vision poem Pearl. Situating the study in the contexts of medieval literary criticism and contemporary genre theory, Beal argues that the poet intended Pearl to be read at four levels of meaning and in four corresponding genres: literally, an elegy; spiritually, an allegory; morally, a consolation; and anagogically, a revelation. The book addresses cruxes and scholarly debates about the poem's genre and meaning, including key questions that have been unresolved in Pearl studies for over...

Education, Industrialization and the End of Empire in Singapore

Kevin Blackburn

Education, Industrialization and the End of Empire in Singapore by Kevin Blackburn

Singapore under the ruling People's Action Party government has been categorized as a developmental state which has utilized education as an instrument of its economic policies and nation-building agenda. However, contrary to accepted assumptions, the use of education by the state to promote economic growth did not begin with the coming to power of the People's Action Party in 1959. In Singapore, the colonial state had been using education to meet the demands of its colonial economy well before the rise of the post-independence developmental state. Education, Industrialization and the End of...

Angel Song: Medieval English Music in History

Lisa Colton

Angel Song: Medieval English Music in History by Lisa Colton

Although medieval English music has been relatively neglected in comparison with repertoire from France and Italy, there are few classical musicians today who have not listened to the thirteenth-century song 'Sumer is icumen in', or read of the achievements and fame of fifteenth-century composer John Dunstaple. Similarly, the identification of a distinctively English musical style (sometimes understood as the contenance angloise) has been made on numerous occasions by writers exploring the extent to which English ideas influenced polyphonic composition abroad. Angel song: Medieval English music...

Contesting Inter-Religious Conversion in the Medieval World

Yaniv Fox & Yosi Yisraeli

Contesting Inter-Religious Conversion in the Medieval World by Yaniv Fox & Yosi Yisraeli

The Mediterranean and its hinterlands were the scene of intensive and transformative contact between cultures in the Middle Ages. From the seventh to the seventeenth century, the three civilizations into which the region came to be divided geographically - the Islamic Khalifate, the Byzantine Empire, and the Latin West - were busily redefining themselves vis-à-vis one another. Interspersed throughout the region were communities of minorities, such as Christians in Muslim lands, Muslims in Christian lands, heterodoxical sects, pagans, and, of course, Jews. One of the most potent vectors of interaction...

Conversation, Friendship and Transformation: Contemporary and Medieval Voices in a Theology of Discourse

Conversation, Friendship and Transformation: Contemporary and Medieval Voices in a Theology of Discourse by Jennifer Constantine Jackson

Conversation is the central spiritual exercise in philosophical and theological reflection on language and love. Groundbreaking in its interdisciplinary approach, Conversation, Friendship and Transformation invites readers to an exploration of theological reflection on conversation and friendship as transformative ways of knowing self, others and God. Contemporary contributions in the areas of rhetorical theory, friendship studies, and gender collaboration provide a fruitful lens through which conversation as discourse may be understood as a pathway for theological inquiry.

Racialised Gang Rape and the Reinforcement of Dominant Order: Discourses of Gender, Race and Nation

Kiran Kaur Grewal

Racialised Gang Rape and the Reinforcement of Dominant Order: Discourses of Gender, Race and Nation by Kiran Kaur Grewal

This path-breaking book provides a comparative analysis of public discourses in France and Australia on a series of highly mediatised racialised gang rapes that occurred during the early to mid-2000s. These rapes led to intense public debate in both countries regarding an apparent 'gang rape phenomenon' associated with young men of Muslim background. By comparing the responses to similar instances of sexual violence in two very different Western liberal democracies, this book explores the relationship between constructions of national, gender and ethnic identity in modern, developed nations...

From Intercountry Adoption to Global Surrogacy: A Human Rights History and New Fertility Frontiers

Karen Smith Rotabi & Nicole F. Bromfield

From Intercountry Adoption to Global Surrogacy: A Human Rights History and New Fertility Frontiers by Karen Smith Rotabi & Nicole F. BromfieldIntercountry adoption has undergone a radical decline since 2004 when it reached a peak of approximately 45,000 children adopted globally. Its practice had been linked to conflict, poverty, gender inequality, and claims of human trafficking, ultimately leading to the establishment of the Hague Convention on Intercountry Adoption (HCIA). This international private law along with the Convention on the Rights of the Child affirm the best interests of the child as paramount in making decisions on behalf of children and families with obligations specifically oriented to safeguards in adoption practices....

Imperial Identities in the Roman World

Wouter Vanacker

Imperial Identities in the Roman World by Wouter VanackerIn recent years, the debate on Romanisation has often been framed in terms of identity. Discussions have concentrated on how the expansion of empire impacted on the constructed or self-ascribed sense of belonging of its inhabitants, and just how the interaction between local identities and Roman ideology and practices may have led to a multicultural empire has been a central research focus. This volume challenges this perspective by drawing attention to the processes of identity formation that contributed to an imperial identity, a sense of belonging to the political, social, cultural and religious...

John of Rupescissa

Matthias Kaup

John of Rupescissa by Matthias Kaup

The VADE MECUM IN TRIBULACIONE was meant as an eschatological manual for the thirteen catastrophic years between its composition in December 1356 and the Thousand-Year Reign of Christ expected to begin in 1370. This manual, permeated by passion for clerical reform, was intended to give righteous Christians practical and spiritual advice on how to survive this period of tribulation. Likewise, it aimed to inform them about what to expect from the envoys of Satan, the Western and the Eastern Antichrists, but also from Christ's warriors, the papal restorer and his secular assistant, the French-Roman...

Killing Hercules: Deianira and the Politics of Domestic Violence, from Sophocles to the War on Terror

Richard Rowland

Killing Hercules: Deianira and the Politics of Domestic Violence, from Sophocles to the War on Terror by Richard Rowland

This book offers an entirely new reception history of the myth of Hercules and his wife/killer Deianira. The book poses, and attempts to answer, two important and related questions. First, why have artists across two millennia felt compelled to revisit this particular myth to express anxieties about violence at both a global and domestic level? Secondly, from the moment that Sophocles disrupted a myth about the definitive exemplar of masculinity and martial prowess and turned it into a story about domestic abuse, through to a 2014 production of Handel's Hercules that was set in the context of...

Modernist Experiments in Genre, Media, and Transatlantic Print Culture

Jennifer Julia Sorensen

Modernist Experiments in Genre, Media, and Transatlantic Print Culture by Jennifer Julia SorensenThe years from 1890 through 1935 witnessed an explosion of print, both in terms of the variety of venues for publication and in the vast circulation figures and the quantity of print forums. Arguing that the formal strategies of modernist texts can only be fully understood in the context of the material forms and circuits of print culture through which they were produced and distributed, Jennifer Sorensen shows how authors and publishers conceptualized the material text as an object, as a body, and as an ontological problem. She examines works by Henry James, Jean Toomer, Djuna Barnes, Katherine...

The Great Church Crisis and the End of English Erastianism, 1898-1906

Bethany Kilcrease

The Great Church Crisis and the End of English Erastianism, 1898-1906 by Bethany Kilcrease

This book traces the history of the "Church Crisis", a conflict between the Protestant and Anglo-Catholic (Ritualist) parties within the Church of England between 1898 and 1906. During this period, increasing numbers of Britons embraced Anglo-Catholicism and even converted to Roman Catholicism. Consequent fears that Catholicism was undermining the "Protestant" heritage of the established church led to a moral panic.

The Crisis led to a temporary revival of Erastianism as protestant groups sought to stamp out Catholicism within the established church through legislation whilst Anglo-Catholics,...

Times of Creative Destruction: Shaping Buildings and Cities in the late C20th

Times of Creative Destruction: Shaping Buildings and Cities in the late C20th by Alexander Tzonis & Liane Lefaivre

Times of Creative Destruction is about the years that followed the end of WWII, one of the most seminal and dramatic epochs in human history, during which extraordinary star-buildings were born, cities exploded, and an unprecedented world of a 'Third Ecology' emerged. Never before was there such a flurry of daring mega-constructions, such daring spatial acrobatics, 'star' buildings by star architects attained by star developers, mega-constructions, technological feats, and flourishing spatial acrobatics. But, for all its exhilarating creativity, this was also an era of unanticipated, intractable,...
