37. Berman, Paul (2004). Terror and Liberalism. London: W. W. Norton. 220 pp. Paperback trade, very good plus condition. A manifesto for an aggressive liberal response to terrorist attacks. One of America's most brilliant public intellectuals, he has spent his career writing on revolutionary movements and their totalitarian aspects. He argues that, in the "War on Terror", we are not facing a battle of the West against Islam - a clash of civilizations. We are facing, instead, the same battle that tore apart Europe during most of the 20th century, only in a new version. It is the clash of liberalism and its enemies - the battle between freedom and totalitarianism that arose in Europe many years ago and spread to the Muslim world. The author considers the wars against fascism and communism from the past, and draws cautionary lessons. But he also draws, from those past experiences, a liberal program that departs in fundamental respects from the policies of the Bush administration. ISBN: 0393325555. Our Book No: 16065. $12 AUD.

One day, a 10-year-old boy named Enaiatollah wakes up to find his mother gone. He is on the border of Pakistan, and he is alone.

London: Earthscan Publications. 185 pp. Hardback octavo, no jacket as issued, pictorial cover, as new condition. Explores how uncertainty is interpreted and used by policy makers, experts and politicians. It argues that conventional notions of rational, evidence-based policy making - hailed by governments and organisations across the world as the only way to make good policy - is impossible in highly complex and uncertain environments. The blind pursuit of such a rational goal is in fact irrational in a world of competing values and interests. Based on two high-profile case studies: the Iraq War, and climate change policy in the US, UK and Australia. Based on three years' research - including interviews with experts such as Hans Blix, Paul Pillar and Brian Jones. Both case studies show that treatment of uncertainty issues in specialist advice is often determined by how well the advice fits with or contradicts the policy goals and orientation of the politicians. One should not allow the debate to be side-tracked by arguments over whose expert advice is "more right". We must accept that uncertainty in complex issues is unavoidable, and recognise the values and interests that lie at the heart of the issues. Offers a hedging approach; this enables policy makers to manage rather than eliminate uncertainty. ISBN: 9781849710831. Our Book No: 14256. $40 AUD.

Chicago: University of Chicago Press. 172 pp. Paperback trade, very good condition. A description of medieval Islamic education systems, and the extent to which they are relevant today. The characteristic problems of the Muslim modernists - the adaptation to the needs of the contemporary situation of a holy book which draws its specific examples from the conditions of the 7th century and earlier - are by no means new. The intellectual and social development of Islam has been impeded and distorted by two interrelated errors. The first was committed by those who, in reading the Koran, failed to recognize the differences between general principles and specific responses to particular historical situations. This rigidity gave rise to the second major error, that of the secularists. By teaching and interpreting the Koran in such a way as to admit of no change or development, the dogmatists had created a situation in which Muslim societies, faced with the imperative need to educate their people for life in the modern world, were forced to make a painful and self-defeating choice - either to abandon Koranic Islam, or to turn their backs on the modern world.

These and similar ideas became entwined in centuries of medical ignorance and religious superstition. But this is not an exclusively "ancient" or "primitive" phenomenon: As late as the 19th century, many doctors opposed the use of anesthesia in childbirth because women had been condemned by God to "bring forth children in sorrow".
