Bringing Down the Banking System: Lessons from Iceland Gudrun Johnsen   9781137455574 Palgrave Macmillan Bringing Down the Banking System: Lessons from Iceland
How could tiny Iceland build a banking system in less than a decade that proportionally exceeded Switzerland's? Why did the bankers decide to grow the system so fast? How did businesses tunnel money out of the banking system? And why didn't anybody stop them? This book answers these questions.
Mecca: The Sacred City Ziauddin Sardar 9781620402665 Bloomsbury Publishing PLC Mecca: The Sacred City
Mecca is, for many, the heart of Islam. It is the birthplace of Muhammad, the direction to which Muslims turn when they pray, and the site of pilgrimage that annually draws some three million Muslims from all corners of the world. Yet the significance of Mecca is more than purely religious. What happens in Mecca and how Muslims think about the political and cultural history of Mecca has had and...
The Lost Spring: U.S. Policy in the Middle East and Catastrophes to Avoid Walid Phares 9781137279033 Palgrave MacMillan The Lost Spring: U.S. Policy in the Middle East and Catastrophes to Avoid
One of the greatest unanswered questions after the massive and violent changes that hit the Middle East in 2011, known to some as the Arab Spring and to others as the Islamist Winter, is how the West failed to predict both cataclysmic seasons in world affairs and to meet their challenges. The so-called spring didn't last long, quickly unraveling into a collection of civil wars, civil unrest, and...
The Disappearance Boy Neil Bartlett 9781620407257 Bloomsbury Publishing PLC The Disappearance Boy
Reggie Rainbow got his name at the orphanage. He had polio as a child, and seventeen years of using crutches have given him strong hands and nimble fingers. It is this dexterity, perfect for illusions, which first led Mr. Brookes to hire him for the act. Reggie has been a disappearance boy for years now, making a long string of alluring assistants vanish while Mr. Brookes tricks and misdirects...
Theology, Music and Time Jeremy S. Begbie Daniel W. Hardy 9780521785686 Cambridge University Press Theology, Music and Time
This work aims to show how music can enrich and advance theology, extending our wisdom about God and God's ways with the world. Instead of asking what theology can do for music, it asks what music can do for theology. The author argues that music's engagement with time gives the theologian invaluable resources for understanding how it is that God enables us to live peaceably with time as a...
Aztec Archaeology and Ethnohistory Frances Berdan 9780521707565 Cambridge University Press Aztec Archaeology and Ethnohistory
This book provides an up-to-date synthesis of Aztec culture, applying interdisciplinary approaches (archaeology, ethnohistory, and ethnography) to reconstructing the complex and enigmatic civilization. Frances F. Berdan offers a balanced assessment of complementary and sometimes contradictory sources in unravelling the ancient way of life. The book provides a cohesive view of the Aztecs and their...
The Cambridge Companion to Jorge Luis Borges Edwin Williamson 9780521141376 CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS The Cambridge Companion to Jorge Luis Borges
Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986) was one of the great writers of the twentieth century and the most influential author in the Spanish language of modern times. He had a seminal influence on Latin American literature and a lasting impact on literary fiction in many other languages. However, Borges has been accessible in English only through a number of anthologies drawn mainly from his work of the...
