More than at any other time in history, today, law governs us all. As a result, some level of knowledge of the law is becoming increasingly important at all levels. It is especially useful for students of law, international relations, politics, and social sciences. International professionals as well as civil society organisations also benefit from the basic knowledge of law. In the post-war era, it is not only domestic laws, but also international laws that govern our individual rights, duties, and social interactions, including international relations. This is particularly the case in the fields of peace, security, human rights, international crime, environmental protection, and world trade. Moreover, the demand for harmonisation between domestic and international law has, in many respects, caused international law to become the main source for the creation and development of domestic law. This book offers a comparative perspective on the basic concepts and ideas about law and state. It was created in response to a number demands. It is written in a simple and comprehensive style so that general readers, law students, paralegals, and students from different social science disciplines can, in a straightforward fashion, all understand the legal concepts, legal philosophy, and law-state relationships in the context of globalisation, international cooperation, and the maintaining of the rule of law at the domestic level. This book aims to offer legal knowledge not only to students who are required to study law as an introductory course, but also to general readers on a wider scale. Its treatment is not confined to a particular legal system full of technical jargons, but rather explains general legal principles applicable to different legal systems in a non-technical manner, allowing the reader to understand the basic legal concepts from a general standpoint.
Rather than converting base metals into gold, Hermetic alchemists focused on elevating their mental forces to a higher level. The precepts of their philosophy remained shrouded in secrecy for more than 2,000 years, clouded by obscure language and dense allegories. This guide offers a modern interpretation of Hermetic doctrine, distilling its teachings into seven compelling principles that can be applied to self-development in daily life.For centuries, the legendary Egyptian man-god Hermes Trismegistus - regarded as the father of astrology, alchemy, and other magical arts - inspired writers and readers of occult literature. In 1908, the anonymous authors known as ""Three Initiates"" prepared this concise and engaging edition of the master's teachings. It outlines the Hermetic principles and then examines them in depth, offering direct quotations from the source material, followed by clear explanations. The best introduction to Hermeticism for beginners and adepts alike, this definitive edition of one of esoteric literature's classics explores principles relevant to any religious, spiritual, or magical tradition.
The world and humanity are changing at an unprecedented rate. This book explores the processess that underlie this changing but coherent canvas. What is fuelling them? What is driving them? Can we control them? Mankind has always found ways to order life so as to reduce uncertainty and has sought to enhance the wellbeing of individuals, peoples and nations. In the modern and postmodern world, business and enterprise play a big role. Their tendency towards globalization needs to be understood and harnessed, not opposed out of hand or wished away, particularly because the tendency has not yet fully worked itself out. For sound understanding it is necessary to avoid seeing the issues through the eyes of one particular discipline. Hence this book also draws on material from history, anthropology, development economics, ICT, sociology and political science to help the reader gain insight into the processes that are occurring. It provides a signpost towards a new dynamic, in an increasingly integrated world, in which we observe an emergent form of globalization affecting the planet as a whole and the future of the people on it.
