Not so very long ago it seemed reasonable to assert that the influence of religion on global politics was on the wane.
As the Western world became increasingly secular and the process of globalisation deepened, it seemed inevitable - on the surface at least - that the voice of religion was to be heard softly if it was to be heard at all. This has now changed, and changed perhaps irrevocably. As Jeff Haynes argues in this thought-provoking and important new book, various religious 'actors' are now significantly involved in international relations and have become a crucial influence on policy in a post-Westphalian world.
International Relations and Religion guides the reader through the complex issues at the heart of this topic with clarity and insight. The book starts with a close reading of the many theoretical and analytical concepts - notably Huntington and the clash of civilisations - that have grown up around this area and then concludes with a summary of the issues under discussion and attempts to put into context what it means to live in a world that is increasingly shaped by a whole host of diverse religious groups.

Din vointa acestei planete organice ia nastere Matca, o putere necunoscuta, planuind sa transforme entitatile cu inteligenta artificiala de pe Terra intr-o noua civilizatie, postumana. Dar neamul atlant al Inteleptilor Haruni, cei care vegheaza de milenii toate formele de viata create din gandirea Marii Constiinte, trimite semne si mesageri catre pamanteni, vestindu-i asupra primejdiei. Al treilea volum al seriei LUMI LA RASPANTIE pune intrebari dnascute din realitatea prezentului: Exista oare riscul ca inteligenta artificiala sa se emancipeze de sub tutela umana? Ar putea ea sa atinga complexitatea naturii biologice, devenind o noua specie, cu o constiinta superioara civlizatiei noastre? Noaptea eclipsei ne indeamna sa meditam la valorile umane fundamentale: increderea, iubirea, dorinta de cunoastere, speranta, puterea de sacrificiu. O carte despre forta si vulnerabilitatea omului si a civilizatiei careia i-a dat nastere.
When Kenneth Earl advertises for someone to help him catalogue his vast collection of music, Maggie -- the final candidate -- is his last hope. What he doesn't know, however, is that this isn't the first time that Maggie has been to Earl House, and it's no coincidence that she applied for the job. As a child, Maggie and her mother lived near the river that runs past the house. Maggie's memories of that time are patchy, like pieces from a jigsaw puzzle that don't quite fit: she remembers Kenneth's son, William; a boat; a dog; she remembers children singing, and being alone, afraid. She remembers -- afterwards -- returning home, mute, refusing to speak. For her, going back to Earl House as an adult offers the chance to fill in the gaps and finally, perhaps, lay the ghosts of her childhood: for her, as for William, this is her chance to reclaim her past. Written in clear, ringing prose, "The Song House" is about language and music, memory and place, about who we are and the narratives we weave about the events of our lives. Beautiful and haunting, its cadences, themes and characters will resonate with the reader long after the final page is finished.
