HOW OUR DOMINANT CHRISTIAN WORLDVIEW SHAPES EVERYTHING FROM PERSONAL BEHAVIOR TO PUBLIC POLICY (AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT) Living in the Shadow of the Cross "is a powerful, compassionate, yet challenging piece of work. This is a must read for anyone who is committed to social justice and ameliorating oppression."---Rev. Dr. Jamie Washington, Assistant Pastor, Unity Fellowship Church of Baltimore, Founding Faculty, Social Justice Training Institute "Paul Kivel's deep, detailed analyses of Christian assumptions and behavior are both appalling and empowering... [He] shows that those of us who were raised in Christian traditions can lessen institutional Christian oppressiveness without disowning the soul itself." ---Peggy McIntosh, Associate Director, Wellesley Centers for Women and Founding Director, National SEED Project on Inclusive Curriculum ... In most people's vocabularies, the word Christian is synonymous with good. However the actual story is much more complex. Over the last two millennia, ruling elites have used Christian institutions and values to control those less privileged throughout the world. The doctrine of Christianity has been interpreted to justify the killing of millions, and its leaders have used their faith to sanction participation in colonialism, slavery, and genocide. By pulling back the curtain of dominant Western Christianity's benign reputation to examine its contribution to our social problems, author Paul Kivel reveals the ongoing, everyday impact of Christian power and privilege on our beliefs, behaviors, and public policy. At the same time, Living in the Shadow of the Cross acknowledges the long and honorable tradition of Christians who work for social justice, and emphasizes the potential for people to come together to resist domination and build and sustain communities of justice and peace. ... "Paul Kivel has done it again, awakened us to a system of dominance that has been invisible for centuries...The success of this book will not be measured by one's agreement or disagreement but rather the degree to which it helps change the discourse about Christian power and dominance"--- Hugh Vasquez, social justice educator and Senior Associate at the National Equity Project ... Paul Kivel is the award-winning author of Uprooting Racism and the director of the Christian Hegemony Project. He is a social justice activist and educator who has focused on the issues of violence prevention, oppression, and social justice for over 45 years.

The Arab Spring heralded a profound shift in the Middle East, bringing to power Islamist movements which had previously been operating in the shadows. The Muslim Brotherhood stormed to victory in Egypt and emerged as a key player in Libya’s nascent political arena. Meanwhile, An-Nahda found itself catapulted into power as the head of Tunisia’s coalition government. For a while, it looked as though the region was entering the dawn of a new Islamist age. But navigating their respective countries through difficult and painful transitions ultimately proved too challenging for these forces, and, just as suddenly, the Brotherhood was dramatically overthrown in Egypt and left severely weakened in Libya. In Tunisia, An-Nahda managed to pull itself through the crisis, but its failure to articulate and deliver the hopes and aspirations of a large section of Tunisian society damaged its credibility. In this authoritative account, Alison Pargeter expertly charts the Islamists’ ascent and subsequent fall from power. Based on extensive research and interviews with high ranking members of the Brotherhood and An-Nahda, Pargeter offers a comparative analysis of the movement in North Africa since the Arab Spring, and outlines the consequences of the Brotherhood’s decline on both the region and the wider Islamist political project.

Human Rights Natural Resource And Investment Law In A Globalised World

In the world’s developing countries, foreign investment in natural resources brings into contact competing interests that are often characterised by unequal balances of negotiating power – from multinational corporations and host governments, through to the local people affected by the influx of foreign investment. The growing integration of the world economy has been accompanied by rapid and extensive developments in the national and international norms that regulate investment and its impact – including investment law, natural resource law and human rights law. These legal developments affect the ‘shadow’ that the law casts over the multiple negotiations that characterise international investment projects in the developing world. Drawing on international law, the national law of selected jurisdictions and the contracts concluded in a large investment project, Human Rights, Natural Resource and Investment Law in a Globalised World explores the ways in which the law protects the varied property rights that are at play in foreign investment projects in developing countries, with a focus on Africa. Through an integrated analysis of seemingly disparate fields of law, this book sheds new light on how the law mediates the competing interests that come into contact as a result of economic globalisation, whilst also providing new insights on the changing nature of state sovereignty and on the relationship between law and power in a globalised world. This book will be of interest to scholars, students and informed practitioners working in the fields of international investment and human rights law, comparative law, socio-legal studies, and development studies.

"A new star is rising in the fantasy firmament...teems with magic and spine-chilling amounts of skullduggery."–Dave Duncan, author of The Great Game When young Alec of Kerry is taken prisoner for a crime he didn’t commit, he is certain that his life is at an end. But one thing he never expected was his cellmate. Spy, rogue, thief, and noble, Seregil of Rhiminee is many things–none of them predictable.

Before long he and Seregil are embroiled in a sinister plot that runs deeper than either can imagine, and that may cost them far more than their lives if they fail.
