Rebel and saint Muslim notables, populist protest, colonial encounters (Algeria and Tunisia, 1800-1904) by Julia Ann Clancy-Smith( file )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 34 libraries worldwide
"Julia Clancy-Smith ... brings us a remarkable view of North African history from the perspective of the North Africans themselves. Focusing on the religious beliefs and political actions of Muslim elites and their followers in Algeria and Tunisia, she provides a richly detailed analysis of resistance and accommodation to colonial rule. -- Clancy-Smith demonstrates the continuities between the eras of Turkish and French rule as well as the importance of regional ties among elite families in defining Saharan political cultures. She rejects the position that Algerians and Tunisians were invariably victims of western colonial aggression, arguing instead that Muslim notables understood the outside world and were quite capable of manipulating the massive changes occurring around them."

Justice and the human genome project ( file )
3 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in English and held by 29 libraries worldwide
The Human Genome Project is an expensive, ambitious, and controversial attempt to locate and map every one of the approximately 100,000 genes in the human body. If it works, and we are able, for instance, to identify markers for genetic diseases long before they develop, who will have the right to obtain such information? What will be the consequences for health care, health insurance, employability, and research priorities? And, more broadly, how will attitudes toward human differences be affected, morally and socially, by the setting of a genetic "standard"?The compatibility of individual rights and genetic fairness is challenged by the technological possibilities of the future, making it difficult to create an agenda for a "just genetics." Beginning with an account of the utopian dreams and authoritarian tendencies of historical eugenics movements, this book's nine essays probe the potential social uses and abuses of detailed genetic information. Lucid and wide-ranging, these contributions will provoke discussion among bioethicists, legal scholars, and policy makers

Territories of grace cultural change in the seventeenth-century Diocese of Grenoble by Keith P Luria( Computer File )
2 editions published between 1991 and 2002 in English and held by 28 libraries worldwide
Bishop Etienne Le Camus arrived in his new cathedral city of Grenoble on 4 November 1671, the fête of Saint Charles Borromeo.[1] He chose this day for his formal entry to signal his intention of emulating Borromeo by bringing the Counter-Reformation to his flock. He was the first representative of the Catholic Church in Grenoble determined to reform the religious lives of people who lived in the remote mountain towns and villages of the diocese. Le Camus's task had been ordained at the Council of Trent a century before his arrival and defined by the work of other reformers, such as Borromeo, throughout Europe. But the diocese of Grenoble seemed to the new prelate barely touched by the reform and its spirituality
