The desert vet : how a city boy became a bedouin nomad and spent thirty years caring for a menagerie of camels and other exotic creatures by Alex Tinson( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alex Tinson is a St Ives-born vet who was literally plucked from the Australian outback to become chief vet in charge of the United Arab Emirates President's racing camels. He was given one mission: to make the President's camels the best in the UAE and, indeed, all of Arabia. Along the way he also cared for a menagerie of most unusual animals from pet cheetahs and monkeys to strange desert lizards. It has also given him a rare entree into the life of the uber-rich Gulf Royal families and the world of the Bedouins ... This is the story of an extraordinarily successful and adventurous expatriate Australian. Compelling and intriguing, it takes you into a world that few have entered before

Deep cultural diversity : a governance challenge by Gilles Paquet( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Deep cultural diversity is an issue that has generated much debate in Canada in recent decades, but it is not clear that a general agreement had been reached about the best way to analyze this phenomenon, about the definition of the optimal degree of cultural diversity, and about the manner in which one might wish to regulate it. This book tackles these three sets of issues and questions the current policy of multiculturalism rooted in the perpetuation of differences, and makes the case for a policy of transculturalism, inspired by a philosophy of cosmopolitanism, and making the highest and best use of moral contracts and recombinant citizenship."--Jacket
Crippling epistemologies and governance failures : a plea for experimentalism by Gilles Paquet( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Crippling Epistemologies and Governance Failures Gilles Paquet attacks the dominant practices of the social sciences and their reliance on inadequate concepts of knowledge, evidence, and inquiry, which have become methodological and ideological "mental prisons". He argues that governance and social arrangements based on these platforms result in weak information infrastructure, poor accountability, and inadequate organizational design, and that these arrangements ultimately fail. He rejects borrowing approaches from the physical sciences and suggests that a richer perspective less

Margaret Macdonald : imperial daughter by Susan Mann( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During an era of separate spheres for men and women, Margaret Macdonald used her nurse's training to gain access to the military and a life of work, travel, and adventure. In the first biography of the head of Canadian military nursing during World War I, Susan Mann traces the life and work of an extraordinary woman from rural Nova Scotia whose sense of duty and ambition found an outlet in the imperialism of Great Britain and the U.S." "In 1906, Macdonald was one of the first two nurses to receive a permanent appointment to the Canadian Army Medical Corps. She became matron-in-chief of Canada's overseas nursing service during World War I with the rank of major - the first such appointment for a woman in the British Empire - and also served as a nurse in the military during the Spanish-American and Boer Wars and in Panama during the construction of the canal." "Mann breaks new ground in military history by weaving the threads of character, ideology, and opportunity into a portrait of Margaret Macdonald and her impact on the professionalization of military nursing."--Jacket
