The popular belief that all Arab men are controlling does a complete disservice to women who have taken ownership of their lives and trajectories. She explores the similarities and differences experienced by Arab women (both Muslim and Christian) in both worlds in their daily lives - work, relationships, home and family life, friendships, the communities they live in, and more. As someone who has a foot in both the Western and Arabic worlds, and with cultural understanding to address important contemporary issues in both, Amal feels equipped to do this by comparing and connecting lives in both worlds. This book aims to normalise Arab women and their experiences, creating a more empathetic response to the perceived other. ISBN: 9780143782612. Our Book No: 17521. $25 AUD.

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.

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.

These and similar ideas became entwined in centuries of medical ignorance and religious superstition. 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".
