Just marriage by Mary Lyndon Shanley ( )
6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As the national debate intensifies over what marriage is and who may marry, Mary Lyndon Shanley argues that although the state should continue to play a role in regulating personal relations, the law must be fundamentally reformed if marriage is to become a more just institution
Islam and the challenge of democracy by Khaled Abou El Fadl ( Book )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The events of September 11 and the subsequent war on terrorism have provoked widespread discussion about the possibility of democracy in the Islamic world. Such topics as the meaning of jihad, the role of clerics as authoritative interpreters, and the place of human rights and toleration in Islam have become subjects of urgent public debate around the world. With few exceptions, however, this debate has proceeded in isolation from the vibrant traditions of argument within Islamic theology, philosophy, and law. Islam and the Challenge of Democracy aims to correct this deficiency. The book engages the reader in a rich discourse on the challenges of democracy in contemporary Islam. The collection begins with a lead essay by Khaled Abou El Fadl, who argues that democracy, especially a constitutional democracy that protects basic individual rights, is the form of government best suited to promoting a set of social and political values central to Islam. Because Islam is about submission to God and about each individual's responsibility to serve as His agent on Earth, Abou El Fadl argues, there is no place for the subjugation to human authority demanded by authoritarian regimes. The lead essay is followed by eleven others from internationally respected specialists in democracy and religion. They address, challenge, and engage Abou El Fadl's work. The contributors include John Esposito, Muhammad Fadel, Noah Feldman, Nader Hashemi, Bernard Haykel, Muqtedar Khan, Saba Mahmood, David Novak, William Quandt, Kevin Reinhart, and Jeremy Waldron
Drawing us in : how we experience visual art ( Book )
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"What do we gain from visual art and what do we stand to lose without it?" "For many of the contributors, visual art makes us see what we haven't seen before; it surprises, transforms, and comforts us. There are other perspectives too: critic Dave Hickey claims that art has no deep moral purpose, and that the artist should not have to work under the burden. Art, he writes, is just a whole lot of fun and therein lies its revolutionary potential. For anyone who has felt moved by the visual, this collection offers a range of views on how and why art matters in our psychic, social, and political lives."--BOOK JACKET
