Islamic finance : theory and practice by Paul S Mills( Book )

23 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and Persian and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book reviews the Islamic opposition to interest and assesses the feasibility of a non-interest financial system in light of current economic theory. The Islamic critique of interest is set against a discussion of the methodology of Islamic economics and the opposition to interest within the Judaeo-Christian tradition. The range of Islamic non-interest financial contracts is then detailed along with a review of the performance of Islamic banks to date; a model of the allocation of finance within a non-interest system is then presented. Assessment of the issues raised is made within the context of economic literature concerning debt versus equity finance; this includes an examination of banking instability and the business cycle, the determinants of levels of saving and the implications for public finance. The conclusions outline the advantages and disadvantages of a theoretical non-interest economy, affirm the theoretical case for the prohibition of interest, and draw practical lessons for contemporary Western economies

New agendas for women by John R Presley( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book sets out a new policy agenda for women. Gender relations are being transformed and a new gender settlement is being created. The challenge to ensure the social inclusion of women within this new settlement is complicated by the diversity in women's lives, in particular between those who are qualified and able to engage in employment and those who are not. Policy concerns that the book addresses include: the welfare provision women need in order to become full citizens; the needs of children and of the elderly; how equal opportunities law could be made to work more effectively; and how to protect women against violence. The concluding chapters address the challenge of ensuring that women are politically represented. This wide-ranging book is written by leading academics who have advised key members of the Labour Party
