The Battle for Vella Lavella : The Allied Recapture of Solomon Islands Territory, August 15–September 9, 1943 by Reg Newell
Requirements: PDF Reader, 73 MB
Overview: During World War II, the Solomon Islands became the scene of a titanic struggle between Allied and Japanese forces. After their victory on Guadalcanal, Americans advanced into the New Georgia Group with horrendous casualties. Admiral Halsey then implemented an “island hopping” strategy, bypassing Japanese strongpoints. The first was an obscure island called “Vella Lavella.”

This book is the first detailed examination of the struggle for Vella Lavella, covering the ground, air and sea battles and the involvement of American and New Zealand soldiers, the coastwatchers, South Pacific Scouts and the Islanders.

“Reg Newell illuminated an obscure part of WWII history. The book is a positive testament to those New Zealand and American soldiers who perished there. Thanks for writing it!” – Dick Arnold, 35th (Cacti) Infantry Regiment Association

Download Islamic Capital Markets by Simon Archer et al. (.PDF)

Islamic Capital Markets and Products: Managing Capital and Liquidity Requirements Under Basel III by Simon Archer, Rifaat Ahmed Abdel Karim
Requirements: PDF Reader, 1.9 Mb
Overview: Ensure Basel III compliance with expert analysis specific to Islamic Finance
Islamic Capital Markets and Products provides a thorough examination of Islamic capital markets (ICM), with particular attention to the products that they offer and the legal and regulatory infrastructure within which they operate. Since Islamic banks act as asset managers, attention is paid to the regulatory challenges which they face in the light of Basel III, as regards both eligible capital and liquidity risk management. The authors of the chapters are professionals and practitioners, and write from experience. The editors also contributed to some of the chapters.
The markets and products covered include Islamic equities, Islamic investment certificates (Sukūk) which are Shari’ah compliant alternatives to conventional bonds, and Islamic Collective Investment Schemes. The coverage of legal and regulatory issues includes an examination of the implications for ICM of securities laws and regulations and of Basel III, as well as collateralisation issues. Shari’ah compliance aspects, in terms both of the selection criteria for Islamic equities and of the ‘purification’ of impermissible components of income, are also examined in some detail, as are the implications of Basel III for eligible capital in general and for Shari’ah compliant capital instruments in particular. A similar analysis is also made of the implications of the Basel III requirements for liquidity risk management and high quality liquid assets (HQLA), including Shari’ah compliant HQLA.
The book concludes with three case studies, two describing the ICM in Malaysia and Bahrain and a third which describes Sukūk issued as Shari’ah compliant capital instruments, followed by brief concluding remarks by the editors.

Download Low Fertility Regimes by Dudley L. Poston (.PDF)

Low Fertility Regimes and Demographic and Societal Change by Dudley L. Poston
Requirements: PDF Reader, 5.3 Mb
Overview: This book explores how low fertility levels could fundamentally change a country’s population and society. It analyzes the profound effects below average birthrates have on virtually all aspects of society, from the economy to religion, from marriage to gender roles. An introduction written by Dudley L. Poston Jr. provides a general overview of this relatively new phenomenon that has already impacted nearly one-half of the countries of the world today. Poston also discusses the broad implications of the changes that these societies are currently experiencing and the ones that they will soon confront. Next, each of the 12 essays collected in this volume look into how a low fertility level affects a particular demographic or societal structure or process. In addition, case studies offer an in-depth portrait of these changes in the United States and China. Coverage includes the dynamics of low and lowest-low (where the birthrate is well below average) fertility, high and increasing life expectancies in the United States, the implications of native-born fertility and other socio-demographic changes for less-skilled U.S. immigration, ageing and age dependency in post-industrial societies, good mothering and gender roles in China, the increasing prevalence of voluntary childlessness, how low fertility and prolonged longevity could result in slow economic growth, the decreasing relevance of traditional religious systems, and more. The emergence and persistence of population decline produced by low fertility levels has the potential to greatly alter key aspects of society as well as individual lives. Containing insightful analysis from some of the top minds in demography today, this book will arm readers with the knowledge they need to fully understand these transformations.

Download The Biopolitics of Feeling by Kyla Schuller (.PDF)

The Biopolitics of Feeling: Race, Sex, and Science in the Nineteenth Century (ANIMA) by Kyla Schuller
Requirements: PDF Reader, 24 MB
Overview: In The Biopolitics of Feeling Kyla Schuller unearths the forgotten, multiethnic sciences of impressibility—the capacity to be transformed by one’s environment and experiences—to uncover how biopower developed in the United States. Schuller challenges prevalent interpretations of biopower and literary cultures to reveal how biopower emerged within the discourses and practices of sentimentalism. Through analyses of evolutionary theories, gynecological sciences, abolitionist poetry and other literary texts, feminist tracts, child welfare reforms, and black uplift movements, Schuller excavates a vast apparatus that regulated the capacity of sensory and emotional feeling in an attempt to shape the evolution of the national population. Her historical and theoretical work exposes the overlooked role of sex difference in population management and the optimization of life, illuminating how models of binary sex function as one of the key mechanisms of racializing power. Schuller thereby overturns long-accepted frameworks of the nature of race and sex difference, offers key corrective insights to modern debates surrounding the equation of racism with determinism and the liberatory potential of ideas about the plasticity of the body, and reframes contemporary notions of sentiment, affect, sexuality, evolution, and heredity.

Principles-Focused Evaluation: The GUIDE by Michael Quinn Patton
Requirements: PDF Reader, 36 MB
Overview: How can programs and organizations ensure they are adhering to core principles–and assess whether doing so is yielding desired results? From evaluation pioneer Michael Quinn Patton, this book introduces the principles-focused evaluation (P-FE) approach and demonstrates its relevance and application in a range of settings. Patton explains why principles matter for program development and evaluation and how they can serve as a rudder to navigate the uncertainties, turbulence, and emergent challenges of complex dynamic environments. In-depth exemplars illustrate how the unique GUIDE framework is used to determine whether principles provide meaningful guidance (G) and are useful (U), inspiring (I), developmentally adaptable (D), and evaluable (E). User-friendly features include rubrics, a P-FE checklist, firsthand reflections and examples from experienced P-FE practitioners, sidebars and summary tables, and end-of-chapter application exercises.
