Tradition and change in a Turkish town by Paul J Magnarella( Book )

17 editions published between 1974 and 1982 in English and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Modernization is the stated theme of this book, employing "a general orientation to the study . .. which has been borrowed from Smelser (1968)." The town is Susurluk in the Aegean region of Turkey, a subprovincial seat in the province of Balikesir. Two periods of the town's past are described: the first, the years from Ataturk's revolution in the 1920s to the introduction of the government-owned beet sugar refinery in the middle 1950s, and the second, the period since the building of the refinery. In the tradition of Lerner's The Passing of Traditional Society, the first period is used as a baseline and modernization is seen as the changes which have taken place in occupation, social roles, family life, educational institutions, and religious beliefs largely during the second period. A year of fieldwork, a working knowledge of Turkish, and previous study of the history, economics, and politics of Turkey give Magnarella a background from which to describe the changes he sees and to illustrate the tragedy he feels for the developing "Culture of Discontent" brought on by these same changes. -- From http://www.jstor.org (Dec. 1, 2016)
Justice in Africa : Rwanda's genocide, its courts, and the UN criminal tribunal by Paul J Magnarella( Book )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Justice in Africa describes the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) - the first international court created to try persons for genocide and violation of the humanitarian law of non-international armed conflict. The book begins with an explanation of the causes of the 1994 genocide in Rwanda. It then discusses the UN Security Council's creation of the ICTR and the Tribunal's organization, functioning, accomplishments and shortcomings. The author explains how the Tribunal has gained custody over suspects who had fled to other countries in Africa, Europe and the United States. Justice in Africa analyses the ICTR's first several cases and describes the unique contributions the Tribunal is making to the expansion of humanitarian law." "In addition, the author describes Rwanda's own legal attempts to deal with the trauma of 1994 by passing a new genocide statute and creating special genocide courts."--Jacket
