4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Politics of Group Rights presents case studies from seven countries, illuminated by the latest insights from multicultural and group-rights theory Cultural diversity has powerful political implications for both industrialized nations and developing countries. In the former, the granting of group rights is seen as a vital extension of liberal democracy, but critics point out that such rights should not negate the human rights of individuals. In developing countries, group rights are seen as indigenous to the prevailing cultural and religious traditions but often times negatively related to individual rights."--Jacket

"This study seeks to solve the following puzzle: In 1947, the Pakistan military was poorly trained and poorly armed. It also inherited highly vulnerable territory vis-a-vis the much bigger India, aggravated because of serious disputes with Afghanistan. Defence and Security were therefore issues that no Pakistan government, civil or military, could ignore. The military did not take part in politics directly until 1958, although it was called upon to restore order in 1953 in the Punjab province. Over the years, the military, or rather the Pakistan Army, continued to grow in power and influence and progressively became the most powerful institution. Moreover, it became an institution with de facto veto powers at its disposal to overrule other actors within society, including elected governments. Simultaneously, it began to acquire foreign patrons and donors willing to arm it as part of the Cold War competition (the United States), regional balance-of-power concerns (China) and ideological contestants for leadership over the Muslim world (Saudi Arabia, to contain Iranian influence). A perennial concern with defining the Islamic identity of Pakistan exacerbated by the Afghan jihad, resulted in the convergence of internal and external factors to produce the 'fortress of Islam' self-description that became current in the early twenty-first century. Over time, Pakistan succumbed to extremism and terrorism within and was accused of being involved in similar activities within the South Asian region and beyond. Such developments have been ruinous to Pakistan's economic and democratic development. The following questions are posed to shed further light: What is the relationship between the internal and external factors in explaining the rise of the military as the most powerful institution in Pakistan? ; What have been the consequences of such politics for the political and economic development in Pakistan? ; What are the future prospects for Pakistan?."--Publisher's website

Ensnaring the pancreatic alpha-cell, and, Syntaxin 1A modulation of the alpha-cell Kv4.3 channel by Ishtiaq Ahmed( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Immunohistochemical and electrophysiological characterization of alpha- and beta-cells confirmed the viability of the GFP-labelling technique for examining islet cells. Furthermore, we demonstrated a large variance in beta-cell sizes with potential functional consequences. Pancreatic islet alpha- and beta-cells secrete glucagon and insulin respectively to maintain glucose homeostasis. Study of alpha-cells is limited by difficulties in isolating and identifying them and therefore little is known concerning regulation of alpha-cell membrane excitability and exocytosis. This thesis (1) assesses a new technique for efficient detection of alpha-cells in a transgenic mouse model expressing GFP-labelled beta-cells and (2) subsequently studies the alpha-cell Kv4.3 channel and its potential regulation by syntaxin 1A (Syn1A), a SNARE protein involved in modulating cell excitability and exocytosis. Our results also indicate that Kv4.3, which significantly shapes action potentials, is less responsive to Syn1A induced inhibition than other Kv channels and that Syn1A - Kv interactions are diverse and dynamic in nature
