The jurisprudence of emergency : colonialism and the rule of law by Nasser Hussain( )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 1,694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The insights developed in The Jurisprudence of Emergency reevalute the place of colonialism in modern law by depicting the colonies as influential agents in the interpretation and delineation of Western ideas and practices. Hussain's interdisciplinary approach and subtly shaded revelations will be of interest to historians as well as scholars of legal and political theory"--Jacket

The jurisprudence of emergency : Sovereignty and the rule of law in British India by Nasser Hussain( )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation is a study of one important aspect of British ideologies of rule in colonial India: the emphasis on a rule of law. It focuses in particular on the ways in which such an emphasis on a rule of law was reconciled with the political exigencies of a regime of conquest. This tension between the legal rights of the subject and the political needs of colonial government marks the entire history of British India. Such a history, however, only represents a more stark and better documented example of what has been perceived by many as a central conflict in western legal systems since the 18th century: the conflict between the operation of law as universal, formal and rational and the absolute sovereignty of the state. This study, therefore, is equally interested in the role of the colonies in the development of law and legal theory in the west

Cab Driving in the Spirit of Islam by Nasser Hussain( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Yet paradoxically, for these South Asian Muslims, cab driving has stabilized into a communal infrastructure, a way of life for over three decades now, and as integral to them as the two Islamic traditions in their lives, Barelwi and Tablighi respectively. In the world of Muslim cab driving, critical knowledge is shared and passed on as religious community is continuously produced. The circulating cab driver occupies a pivotal mediating role, full of potential and promise, but also a position fraught with risk. As a figure of access and “plain person” in Alasdair MacIntyre’s words, he is an integral religious authority in this sociality, readily available to dispense and enjoin the Islamic good. It requires virtue and skill to live according to the sunna, the model of ethicality based on the Prophet’s example, the Prophet motive, rather than being dictated by the profit motive. In doing so, the expert driver turns a possible vulnerability into a potentiality. The study has five parts. In ‘Formations of the Rude Boy,’ I introduce the “boys,” figures of resistance and rebellion analogous to Paul Willis’ working-class “lads.” Via the critical medium of the car, the boy becomes the sovereign-beast
