Islam in International Relations: Politics and Paradigms analyses the interaction between Islam and IR. It shows how Islam is a conceptualization of ideas that affect people’s thinking and behaviour in their capacity to relate with IR as both discipline and practice. This approach challenges Western-based and defined epistemological and ontological foundations of the discipline, and by doing so contributes to worlding IR as a field of study and practice by presenting and discussing a broad range of standpoints from within Islamic civilization. The volume opens with the presentation and discussion of the international thought of a major Muslim leader, followed by a chapter that addresses the ethical practice of IR, from traditional pacifism to modern Arab political philosophy. It then switches to applying constructivism as a tool to understand Islam in world affairs and proceeds to address the issue of how the ethnocentric approach of Western academia has hindered our understanding of world affairs. The volume moves on to address the ISIS phenomenon, a current urgent issue in world affairs, and closes with a look at Islamic geopolitics. This comprehensive collection will be of great interest to students, scholars and policy-makers with a focus on the Muslim world.

A leader in the field presents a cohesive narrative of world history that effectively addresses the main challenge of the introductory survey: how to navigate beginning students through the vast detail of the subject. McNeill uses connective websÑalong which trade, religious beliefs, technologies, pathogens, and much else traveledÑto organize details and keep the big picture in view. Students emerge with clear takeaways and a strong sense of the basic dynamics of world history. Together with digital resources that amplify the webs approach and highlight diverse types of evidence, John McNeillÕs The Webs of Humankind offers a clear and effective teaching tool for the world history survey course.

Argues that blackness disrupts our essential ideas of race, gender, and, ultimately, the human Rewriting the pernicious, enduring relationship between blackness and animality in the history of Western science and philosophy, Becoming Human: Matter and Meaning in an Antiblack World breaks open the rancorous debate between black critical theory and posthumanism. Through the cultural terrain of literature by Toni Morrison, Nalo Hopkinson, Audre Lorde, and Octavia Butler, the art of Wangechi Mutu and Ezrom Legae, and the oratory of Frederick Douglass, Zakiyyah Iman Jackson both critiques and displaces the racial logic that has dominated scientific thought since the Enlightenment. In so doing, Becoming Human demonstrates that the history of racialized gender and maternity, specifically antiblackness, is indispensable to future thought on matter, materiality, animality, and posthumanism. Jackson argues that African diasporic cultural production alters the meaning of being human and engages in imaginative practices of world-building against a history of the bestialization and thingification of blackness—the process of imagining the black person as an empty vessel, a non-being, an ontological zero—and the violent imposition of colonial myths of racial hierarchy. She creatively responds to the animalization of blackness by generating alternative frameworks of thought and relationality that disrupt not only the racialization of the human/animal distinction found in Western science and philosophy but also by challenging the epistemic and material terms under which the specter of animal life acquires its authority. What emerges is a radically unruly sense of a being, knowing, feeling existence: one that necessarily ruptures the foundations of "the human."

A celebration of talking with strangers! Chronicling a year in the life of a sociable middle-aged introvert meeting and talking with strangers in coffee shops, on buses, in parks in South Wales. The book seeks to dispel the myth that introverts are anti-social, and challenge the British habit of aloofness and awkwardness with strangers. The encounters did a great deal more though. Not least to supply some strange coincidences or 'synchronicities'. These served to show how connected the world is, and that we are foolhardy not to reach out to others.

A strikingly original exploration of what it might mean to be authentically human in the age of artificial intelligence, from the author of the critically-acclaimed Interior States. "Meghan O’Gieblyn is a brilliant and humble philosopher, and her book is an explosively thought-provoking, candidly personal ride I wished never to end ... This book is such an original synthesis of ideas and disclosures. It introduces what will soon be called the O’Gieblyn genre of essay writing.” —Heidi Julavits, author of The Folded Clock For most of human history the world was a magical and enchanted place ruled by forces beyond our understanding. The rise of science and Descartes's division of mind from world made materialism our ruling paradigm, in the process asking whether our own consciousness—i.e., souls—might be illusions. Now the inexorable rise of technology, with artificial intelligences that surpass our comprehension and control, and the spread of digital metaphors for self-understanding, the core questions of existence—identity, knowledge, the very nature and purpose of life itself—urgently require rethinking. Meghan O'Gieblyn tackles this challenge with philosophical rigor, intellectual reach, essayistic verve, refreshing originality, and an ironic sense of contradiction. She draws deeply and sometimes humorously from her own personal experience as a formerly religious believer still haunted by questions of faith, and she serves as the best possible guide to navigating the territory we are all entering.

One Health (OH) is the conceptual and operational framework that links environment, food-producing organisms and human health. OH is a developing field, that deals with the multifaceted web of feed-backs and interactions among its components. In order to avoid “drowning into complexity”, priority issues should be identified, either for research and for risk analysis. To date OH approaches have frequently pivoted on infectious agents shared among animals and humans and the related problems, such as antibiotic resistance. Nevertheless, the OH scenarios include, and should increasingly include, environment-and-health problems. Food and environment do interact. Environment influences the living organisms that produce human food and, in the meanwhile, food production outputs influence the environmental quality; as for foods of animal origin, feed materials and practices are driving components of the environment-food interactions. In this book, we aimed at highlighting the importance of environment, chemical exposures and toxicological issues in the field of OH, as well as the need for multidisciplinary integration in order to support OH approaches into diseases prevention and health promotion.

Who am I? This question has defied answer since time immemorial! World famous psychologists and scientists have tried to find an answer to this question without success. In fact, you know me very well. You meet me daily, live with me, work with me, work for me, supervise me, make me work for you; and my mistakes cause disasters, in which you and I perish! You meet me as a father, mother, brother, sister, husband, wife, friend, lover, employer, employee... the list is endless. No venture or activity can ever be accomplished without me. You need me. You cannot get anything done without me. It is I with whom you want a relationship; who creates the greatest love story or heartbreak; makes any undertaking a success or a failure; is the single largest cost item in any company's balance sheet; and matters the most in any activity. Yet, I am least understood and cared! Your inability to understand me leads to most of the organizational and interpersonal problems, even accidents and disasters, in the world today. Disasters, in relationships - between families, friends, colleagues and lovers; in work-place interactions leading to organizational conflicts; in development or implementation of policies, procedures or processes I cannot be relied upon to follow, leading to accidents; these result from your inability to understand me. I cannot be managed or controlled. I can only be led, motivated, mentored and developed. Love me, or hate me, you cannot live without me! You got me and the sooner you understand me, the better will it be for both of us! I am a human, and this... is my story.

This book is more than an overview of race. While it includes haplographic studies and ancestry tracing, there is still a lot that is unknown about who we are as a HUMAN race. The story begins with the first people who lived with dinosaurs and the massive mutations occurring 5 thousand and 10 thousand years ago. Why these happened are important when tracing our ancestry. This study does not cover the near term expansion and massive mixing of races. What it does is look for beginnings and endings. Both suggest mutation, separation, migration, and adaptation in a world that is just a changing as race.

Kingsville is located in Essex County in southwestern Ontario, west of the Leamington, south of Lakeshore, southeast of Essex. It is primarily an agricultural community nestled along the north shore of Lake Erie. The terrain is generally flat, and consists of a mixture of various rocks, sand and clay. The town is about 570 feet above sea level. Kingsville is home to the Jack Miner Bird Sanctuary. Jack Miner was awarded The Order of the British Empire (OBE) for his achievements in conservation in the British Empire. Jack Miner is considered "the father of the conservation movement on the continent." The Town of Kingsville is rich in history and Victorian era architecture. Leamington is a located in Essex County, Ontario. It includes Point Pelee, the southernmost point of mainland Canada. Leamington became the home of the H. J. Heinz factory in 1908. The Heinz products were shipped from Leamington mostly to the United States. Ketchup and baby food were the main products. Leamington is known as the "Tomato Capital of Canada." The Heinz Company closed its plant in Leamington in 2014. Leamington was incorporated as a village in 1876. The community was named after Royal Leamington Spa in England. It was a crossroads hamlet with about 300 residents and was first known for its lumber products. There were several docks, and fish were plentiful in Lake Erie and sturgeon could be speared from the shore; fish was the cheapest food available. Leamington once had many tobacco farms but now they are gone. Blytheswood is a small community located in Essex County, in southwestern Ontario. The village is at the intersection of Highway 77 and Concession 8. Blytheswood's more recognized businesses are the Jones Popcorn family farm and Setterington's farm supply depot. Blytheswood and the surrounding area of Leamington are experiencing a boom in greenhouse development for agricultural products. King's Highway 77, commonly referred to as Highway 77, is a provincially maintained highway in the Canadian province of Ontario. One of three highways within Essex County, Highway 77 serves to interconnect Highway 3 near Leamington with Highway 401 near Tilbury. Due to the flat topography of Essex County, the land use surrounding Highway 77 is almost entirely agricultural. Soil conditions in Essex are ideal for farming. Many streams have been diverted to irrigate the farmland to either side of the highway. Highway 77 begins at the Leamington Bypass, north of the city of the same name. The western section of Highway 3 shares its eastern terminus with Highway 77; from there it travels west towards Windsor. Several greenhouses are visible near the southern end of the highway, a small percentage of the 610 hectares (1,500 acres) of land occupied by them in the Leamington area. The highway runs seven miles north through Mount Carmel and Blytheswood to the village of Staples, passes through Comber. Highway 401 provides access to Windsor and the United States to the west, and to the town of Tilbury and city of Chatham-Kent to the east. To the north, the road continues as Essex County Road 35 to Stoney Point on the shores of Lake Huron. Tilbury is located in the municipality of Chatham-Kent and is 26.5 kilometres southwest of Chatham and 57 kilometres east of Windsor on Highway 401. The nearby townships of Tilbury West in Essex County and Tilbury East in Kent County were named for the port of Tilbury in the English county of Essex. A settlement, called Henderson after the local postmaster, was established with the construction of the Canada Southern Railway in 1875. The name of the post office was changed to Tilbury Centre and later to Tilbury. Tilbury is famous for its murals which depict part of its history.
