Modernization, democracy, and Islam by Shireen Hunter( )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Islamic world has a poor record in terms of modernization and democracy. However, the source of this situation is not religion, but factors including colonialism, international economic and trading systems, and the role of the military, among others. Recognizing these themes allows the consideration of possible remedies for change in the Muslim world
Islam and human rights : advancing a U.S.-Muslim dialogue by Shireen Hunter( Book )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These state-of-the-art essays represent a major advance in the conversation on Islam and human rights. With an innovative blend of historical, conceptual, and geopolitical perspectives, Islam and Human Rights claims a distinct place for itself by its well-integrated coverage of all relevant issues ... Invaluable to scholars and policymakers alike."--Peter Mandaville, Director, Center for Global Studies, George Mason University. "The distinguished authors dispassionately analyse an emotive subject and offer a constructive guide to how Muslims themselves can advance a progressive agenda and the United States can reconcile its interests and ideals ... Speaks thoughtfully to the concerns of policymakers, journalists, and the informed public."--James Piscatori, Fellow, Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies. In the last few years, issues related to human rights, including encouraging the democratization of Muslim societies from the Middle East to Southeast Asia, have acquired great importance in shaping the character of U.S.-Muslim relations and U.S. policy toward Muslim countries. An important impetus behind this development were the tragic events of 9/11, which demonstrated the destructive potential of militant groups that use a distorted interpretation of Islam as justification for their actions. These events also led to a greater realization by the United States--and the West--that a lack of democracy and lack of respect for human rights have been contributory factors to the rise of militant Islam. Consequently, in its approach toward the Muslim world, the United States has emphasized the themes of human rights and democracy. Within the Islamic world, too, both secular and moderate Islamists have begun focusing on issues related to human rights. Although many conservative Muslims believe that Islam is incompatible with Western notions of democracy and human rights, reformist Muslim thinkers and activists maintain that a proper reading of Islamic injunctions and the ethical values underpinning those injunctions shows there is no such incompatibility. Complicating the debate is the fact that many Muslims --secular as well as conservative and reformist -- doubt the seriousness of the U.S. commitment to the cause of human rights and democracy in the Muslim world, believing that the United States applies human rights' standards selectively to suit its strategic and economic interests. Irrespective of the validity of these charges, they are part of the context of the U.S.-Muslim dialogue on human rights. And it is this complex dialogue that this volume seeks to advance

Structural, spectral, thermal and dielectric properties of Nd-Ni co-doped Sr-Ba-Cu hexagonal ferrites synthesized via sol-gel auto-combustion route( )

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

Abstract: Neodymium-nickel (Nd-Ni) substituted nanocrystalline ferrites of the following chemical formula SrBaCu2−x Nix Ndy Fe12−y O22 (x = 0, 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8, 1.0, y = 0.0, 0.02, 0.04, 0.06, 0.08, 0.1) were synthesized by the sol-gel auto-combustion route. The synthesized samples were characterized by X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and dielectric measurement techniques. The properties related to structure of the prepared samples were examined in detail in addition to thorough analysis of their dielectric properties. Microstructural studies exposed the formation of spherical, elongated grains and all the prepared samples showed single Y-type hexagonal phase and lattice parameters have been calculated. FTIR technique was employed to explore the local symmetry behavior in the synthesized crystalline materials and to probe the process of ordering in nano-crystalline ferrites. With increase in frequency and Nd-Ni contents, dielectric constant and dielectric loss of the samples was found to decrease. The complex impedance formalism confirms the role of grain-interior phenomenon to the dielectric properties. Resistive and capacitive characteristics of materials were exhibited by Cole-Cole plots having single semicircle, caused by contribution of grain boundaries in prepared Y-type nano materials
