If you've ever read a news story about radical Islam, you've probably seen "sharia law" mentioned. But for something that is becoming increasingly prevalent in political rhetoric, it's hard to believe how little most people actually know about Islamic law. In this concise and instructive book, Khurram Dara explains not only the history and origins of Islamic law but also the interesting role it has played in the politics of the Middle East and Middle America. Challenging the conventional wisdom that Islamic law is rigid and permanent, Dara argues that the political and cultural realities of its formation suggest otherwise and should change how Islamic law is thought of and discussed in both the East and the West. Combining religious history with legal analysis, Contracting Fear explains Islamic law in the context of the global political climate today.

Our New National Security Strategy

This book is an analysis of President Bush's Regional Defense Strategy first unveiled in Aspen, Colorado, on August 2, 1990.

This book is an analysis of President Bush's Regional Defense Strategy first unveiled in Aspen, Colorado, on August 2, 1990. This strategy involves a mix of active, reserve, and reconstitutable forces, and General Colin Powell's Base Force. If implemented, the new strategy and force structure would return significant U.S. ground and air forces to the continental United States where most would be demobilized. In the event of a major crisis, the United States would rely on active and reserve forces for a contingency response, much as was done for Operation Desert Storm. The new national security strategy is based upon the 25 percent budget cut negotiated with Congress, a greatly depleted Russian threat, and a new international security environment that assumes two-years' warning of a European-centered global war with the former USSR. There are four major critical factors upon which the new strategy depends: (1) the continued decline of the Russians as a threat to world stability; (2) the ability of the intelligence community to meet new challenges; (3) the behavior of the allies and Congress; and (4) the ability of industry to meet new demands. The new strategy is not simply an adjustment to existing defense doctrine or strategy, but rather a fundamental revision of the way the United States has approached defense since 1945. Students and scholars interested in politico-military strategy and government policy will find this book of great interest.

This work is a translation of the revised and considerably supplemented edition of A.L. Kovalevsky's well-known monograph on biogeochemical methods of prospecting for minerals. The approach is essentially practical. Principles of the formation of biogeochemical haloes for 14 elements are discussed and practical results of biogeochemiacl prospecting for molybdenum and sulphide deposits are presented. An excellent chapter on methodology tells exactly how to undertake the tasks in view, including sample preparation and analysis, interpretation of data and the combination of biogeochemical techniques with other procedures. Perhaps the most important contribution made by this book is the principle of selection of suitable biosamples whose elemental content is proportional to that of the substrate. This book will be of immeasurable assistance to the practical field worker engaged in biogeochemical prospecting. It will also be of interest to geologists, geochemists, geophysicists and specialists in related areas in both academic and industrial spheres.
