1283. Tác giả chính: John L. Esposito
Nhan đề: Unholy war : terror in the name of Islam / John L. Esposito
Số phân loại : 322.420882 J427; Đặc điểm vật lý: 196 p. : ill. ; 25 cm
     *Tóm tắt : The devastating September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon left us stunned, angry, and uncomprehending. As it became clear that these horrifying acts had been committed in the name of Islam, we struggled to understand how religion could be used to justify the slaughter of innocents. The media, the government, and ordinary citizens alike sought answers to questions about Islam and its adherents. Who are the Muslim extremists who perpetrate such deeds? Why do they hate us? What do they hope to achieve? Does Islam really teach that such terrorists are holy warriors who will be rewarded with everlasting bliss?      .

Nhan đề: Initiating devolution for service delivery in Pakistan : ignoring the power structure / Shahrukh Rafi Khan, Foqia Sadiq Khan and Aasim Sajjad Akhtar
Số phân loại : 323 S102; Đặc điểm vật lý: xv, 273 tr. ; 23 cm
Tác giả khác: Foqia Sadiq Khan; Aasim Sajjad Akhtar
     *Tóm tắt : Few would oppose a devolution reform that truly empowers the grassroots level and improves service delivery for the poor. This book demonstrates that the key to such devolution in rural Pakistanis is diffusing power via land reforms so that the poor are empowered and capable of ensuring that the service delivery is not hijacked and actually serves them      .

1286. Tác giả chính: James Griffi


Nhan đề: On human rights / James Griffin
Số phân loại : 323 J104; Đặc điểm vật lý: 339 tr. ; 25 cm
     *Tóm tắt : What is a human right? How can we tell whether a proposed human right really is one? How do we establish the content of particular human rights, and how do we resolve conflicts between them? These are pressing questions for philosophers, political theorists, jurisprudents, international lawyers, and activists. James Griffin offers answers in his compelling new investigation of the foundations of human rights.  First, On Human Rights traces the idea of a natural right from its origin in the late Middle Ages, when the rights were seen as deriving from natural laws, through the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, when the original theological background was progressively dropped and 'natural law' emptied of most of its original meaning. By the end of the Enlightenment, the term "human rights" (droits de l'homme) appeared, marking the purge of the theological background. But the Enlightenment, in putting nothing in its place, left us with an unsatisfactory, incomplete idea of a human right.      .

1287. Tác giả chính: Timothy Macklem
Nhan đề: Independence of mind / Timothy Macklem
Số phân loại : 323.01 T310; Đặc điểm vật lý: xii, 189Tr ; 25 cm
     *Tóm tắt : Independence of Mind takes this accepted thought a step further, by exploring the ways in which the fundamental freedoms help us to achieve something even more profound, by enabling us to arrive at beliefs, convictions and voices of our own, so that we truly come to think, believe and speak for ourselves in the rich and various ways that the freedoms then protect. Privacy grants us the distance and refuge from others necessary to develop views of our own; freedom of speech calls on us to imagine ways of expressing ourselves that are both true to the views we have developed and innovative in their own right; freedom of conscience enables each of us to create a distinctive rational personality in which to embed the convictions that we wish to treat as non-negotiable; freedom of religion allows groups of us to endorse certain beliefs as articles of faith, free from the full demands of rational scrutiny      .

Nhan đề: Separate and unequal : African Americans and the US federal government / Desmond King
Số phân loại : 323.1196073 D463; Đặc điểm vật lý: 368Tr : Minh họa ; 24 cm
     *Tóm tắt : "In this landmark book, Desmond King reveals and corrects a glaring gap at the epicenter of studies of racial inequality and political development in the United States: their blindness to the pivotal role of the state in making race. With historical precision and analytic rigor, he demonstrates how, for seven decades following the legal affirmation of the doctrine 'separate and equal' in 1896, the federal government both bolstered and expanded racial separation, in effect nationalizing the pattern of black subordination elaborated by Southern segregationists in the aftermath of abolition...      .
