Edited By Amyot, D. And Logrippo, L.
Feature interaction is a phenomenon well-known to the designers of modern feature-rich telephone switching systems (public or private). This phenomenon occurs when one feature modifies or subverts the operation of another one. This work brings together representatives of the telecommunications industry, the software industry, and the research community, working on various aspects of the problem in order to discuss possible solutions and their practical applications, as well as setting directions for further research. 329pp.

Nesbitt, Eleanor
This book has been written for teachers, teacher trainers and their students, and others working with children and young people. It provides a valuable resource for those engaged in religious studies and South Asian studies, comprising a rich library of data relevant to current debates in these fields. Drawing on field studies of children of South Asian and other backgrounds in Britain, Nesbitt argues the value to schools of teachers adopting an ethnographic approach in intercultural education. Examples from primary, secondary and higher education demonstrate the urgent need for teachers and others to be better informed of cultural diversity and to understand the interconnections between ethnographic studies, pastoral care, the curriculum, and international events. "Intercultural Education" examines a wide variety of issues, including spirituality, identity formation, the ways in which 'beliefs' and 'practices' are represented, stereotyping communities, being a Christian at school, and the role of caste. The book contains Practical Guidelines for teachers, as well as a Glossary, covering pastoral care, racism, liaison with parents, recognising the diversity of language, etc. 204pp.

Temple-Raston, Dina
This is the compelling story of America's first home-grown terrorist cell traces six young Yemeni Americans from a New York state backwater to an Al-Qaeda training camp. They called themselves the Arabian Knights, just a gang of high schoolers who spray-painted the name onto the back of their jackets, Arab hip hop asserting itself in the grimy side streets of Lackawanna - a depressed neighbourhood in a run-down steel town in upper New York state. Then, in Spring of 2001, they became something more. A handful of Arabian Knights decided to go on an adventure. They told their parents they were travelling to Pakistan to study at a madrassa. The elders in the neighbourhood saw their new interest in Islam as a positive step, an alternative to hanging around a town where job prospects - any prospects - were so few. But their adventure became more dramatic. There was a clandestine border crossing into Afghanistan, stays in jihadi guesthouses and then training at an infamous Al-Qaeda camp outside Kandahar. Then, just weeks after the last of the Arabian Knights returned to Lackawanna, two planes crashed into the World Trade Center towers. What had been a lark, a religious curiosity, took on a new meaning. Suddenly, six guys from Lackawanna became much more. To former US Attorney General John Ashcroft, the Lackawanna Six were the country's first home-grown Islamic terror cell. The city of Lackawanna and local parents were shocked. They couldn't believe that Al-Qaeda could claim any of their own. Dina Temple-Raston has retraced their journey, discovered what lured them into an Al-Qaeda camp and a face-to-face meeting with Osama bin Laden, and tracks their return to the US. Some of the men were just grateful to be home. Others considered the world through newly radicalized eyes288pp..

Edited By Blanpain,Roger and Engels,Chris
Since the onset of globalization, protective labour legislation has been deeply eroded throughout the industrialized world. In its place we have a plethora of new employment phenomena such as flexible work time, temporary work services, decentralization of collective bargaining, private fee-charging employment placement services - a wide variety of arrangements in which employers and individual workers reach mutual agreement with little or no reliance on legal norms of government regulation. What are the dimensions and implications of this trend? And how should we go about ensuring the continuing effectiveness of labour law as an instrument of social ordering? These important questions drew a group of prominent labour law scholars from eight major developed countries to the Fifth Japan Institute of Labour (JIL) Comparative Labour Law Seminar in Tokyo in November 1998. Each participant presented papers and engaged in group discussion on the following topics: changes in labour market regulations, such as abolition of state-monopolized employment placement services and deregulation of fixed-term contracts; trends in individual labour relations, such as working hour flexibilization and expansion of derogation toward individual consent; and developments in collective labour relations, such as the movements from centralized bargaining to company- or plant-level bargaining and from trade unions to works councils. This book is the record of this seminar. Its analysis and conclusions should be useful to any practitioner, policymaker or academic interested in using available means to ensure the persistence of our commitment to high standards in labour relations. It is an integrated starting point from which to proceed toward a new labour law concept positively adapted to the socio-economic realities of the modern world. 168pp.

Edited By Fletcher,Ian M. And Swarting,Odd
The vast expansion of international trade has greatly increased the incidence of cross-border ownership of assets, both tangible and intangible. It is not uncommon, for instance, for a business to own both physical plant and intellectual property in two or more jurisdictions. Under these circumstances, it is vital for business persons and their counsel to have some knowledge of a variety of relevant domestic legal regimes, particularly in regard to available remedies. This text provides the essential details of such knowledge for 14 important commercial jurisdictions: Argentina, Belgium, Bermuda, Canada, Germany, India, Japan, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, England and Wales (United Kingdom), and the US. Each country survey is presented by an experienced business law practitioner in his or her particular jurisdiction. Each chapter's coverage includes discussion of remedies under such security interests as: real estate; fixtures; movables; patents; trademarks; and industrial models and designs. Each author also explains important procedural aspects of many typical phases of ownership, including registration, transfer, sale of an ongoing concern or stock in trade, taxation, trusteeship, and injunction orders. Remedies under private international law are also considered. 280pp.
