BEYOND All Reason: The Radical Assault on Truth in American Law
₱ 3,929.00
Galleon

Would you want to be operated on by a surgeon trained at a medical school that did not evaluate its students? Would you want to fly in a plane designed by people convinced that the laws of physics are socially constructed? Would you want to be tried by a legal system indifferent to the distinction between fact and fiction? These questions may seem absurd, but these are theories being seriously advanced by radical multiculturalists that force us to ask them. These scholars assert that such concepts as truth and merit are inextricably racist and sexist, that reason and objectivity are merely sophisticated masks for ideological bias, and that reality itself is nothing more than a socially constructed mechanism for preserving the power of the ruling elite. In Beyond All Reason , liberal legal scholars Daniel A. Farber and Suzanna Sherry mount the first systematic critique of radical multiculturalism as a form of legal scholarship. Beginning with an incisive overview of the origins and basic tenets of radical multiculturalism, the authors critically examine the work of Derrick Bell, Catherine MacKinnon, Patricia Williams, and Richard Delgado, and explore the alarming implications of their theories. Farber and Sherry push these theories to their logical conclusions and show that radical multiculturalism is destructive of the very goals it wishes to affirm. If, for example, the concept of advancement based on merit is fraudulent, as the multiculturalists claim, the disproportionate success of Jews and Asians in our culture becomes difficult to explain without opening the door to age-old anti-Semitic and racist stereotypes. If historical and scientific truths are entirely relative social constructs, then Holocaust denial becomes merely a matter of perspective, and Creationism has as much "validity" as evolution. The authors go on to show that rather than promoting more dialogue, the radical multiculturalist preferences for legal storytelling and identity politics over reasoned argument produces an insular set of positions that resist open debate. Indeed, radical multiculturalists cannot critically examine each others' ideas without incurring vehement accusations of racism and sexism, much less engage in fruitful discussion with a mainstream that does not share their assumptions. Here again, Farber and Sherry show that the end result of such thinking is not freedom but a kind of totalitarianism where dissent cannot be tolerated and only the naked will to power remains to settle differences. Sharply written and brilliantly argued, this book is itself a model of the kind of clarity, civility, and dispassionate critical thinking which the authors seek to preserve from the attacks of the radical multiculturalists. With far-reaching implications for such issues as government control of hate speech and pornography, affirmative action, legal reform, and the fate of all minorities, Beyond All Reason is a provocative contribution to one of the most important controversies of our time.

BEYOND the Sea: An Event Group Thriller (Event Group Thrillers)
₱ 2,128.00
Galleon

The Soviet battle cruiser Simbirsk , which launched in June 1940 and was reported sunk in 1944 with the loss of all hands, is still sailing the open sea. January 2017: American Los Angeles class submarine USS Houston is tracking a surface target that is not listed as part of the Russian navy’s response to the NATO maneuvers. What they find will set in motion the answers to one of the great mysteries of World War II. With the Russian navy bearing down on the Houston and international tensions running high, the United States Navy declares the Soviet-era derelict legal salvage under international law. With the world’s most powerful navies going toe-to-toe in the North Atlantic, the President of the United States calls upon the one organization that has a chance to figure out why this ship is in this time, in this place―Department 5656, also known as the Event Group. When the Event Group arrives, they are confronted by three warships of the Russian Navy who have come to claim their nation's property. The two groups meet and soon discover that the ancient battle cruiser is not a derelict at all, but fully functional with a mysterious apparatus that sent the original crew to their deaths. In the midst of their warfare in the tossing seas, both navies are sent into a realm of unimaginable terror―an alternate world of water, ice, and death. The Event Group has a new mission when relics of the fabled Philadelphia Experiment surface in Beyond the Sea , the twelfth thrilling hit in New York Times bestselling author David L. Golemon's Event Group series.

BEYOND Shock: Charting the Landscape of Sexual Violence in Post-Quake Haiti (ONWARD!) (Volume 1)
₱ 2,259.00
Galleon

“A must-read report… you will be inspired.”-- Edwidge Danticat, author, Breath, Eyes, Memory. New Beyond Shock Haiti book released by UCSB Center for Black Studies Research Provides Comprehensive Picture of Post-Quake Fight Against Rape and Gender Aftershocks October 2013 - Nearly four years after Haiti’s historic earthquake, a major new book, Beyond Shock: Charting the Landscape of Sexual Violence in Post-quake Haiti has been published by the University of California, Santa Barbara’s Center for Black Studies Research, in collaboration with the Haitian Studies Association (HSA) and the Haitian advocacy coalition PotoFanm+Fi (Women and Girls Pillar in Kreyol). The book is the first in a planned Commemorative Series, Onward! by the Center and the Haitian Studies Association. Beyond Shock (378 pp.) was written by author and journalist Anne-christine d’Adesky with PotoFanm+Fi colleagues and includes a foreword by acclaimed Haitian author Edwidge Danticat and a visual essay on girls in Haiti’s camps by photographer Nadia Todres. It charts advances in addressing sexual violence and providing services to victims across key sectors of the reconstruction. With reports and updates from over 60 agencies, field providers and profiles of grassroots leaders, the book provides a comprehensive view of how Haitians have coped with a devastating social aftershock of the historic 2010 earthquake. What Readers and Scholars Are Saying About the Book: "Beyond Shock is a groundbreaking study that emerges in a global culture that chronically stigmatizes and spectacularizes rape survivors. Beyond Shock takes a meticulous approach to going beyond the headlines by magnifying the voices and activism of rape survivors, their allies, and anti-rape advocates. This focus on community and resistance is a reminder of how the Haitian tradition of ‘konbit ‘can help to transform rape culture." -- Régine Michelle Jean-Charles, author, Conflict Bodies: The Politics of Rape Representation in the Francophone Imaginary and Assistant Professor, African & African Diaspora Studies Program, Boston College. “Beyond Shock raises the bar for publishing solid, timely, and necessary research in Haiti… [it] offers grounded perspectives on the problem of gender based violence, and sheds light on some important, intersectional solutions. A must-read for anyone interested in gender, social action research, or Haiti.” – Mark Schuller, co-editor, Tectonic Shifts, author, Killing with Kindness and Assistant Professor of Anthropology, Northern Illinois University. “An important advance in the fight for justice for victims of sexual and other gender-motivated violence in Haiti…Beyond Shock not only explains the obstacles to justice for victims of rape and other gender violence, it recognizes the successful efforts to overcome those obstacles by activists, judicial officials and lawyers. By clearly articulating the problems and demonstrating the solutions, the report helps show the way to comprehensive, sustainable improvement in the way that survivors of sexual violence are treated by the justice system.” --Brian Concannon, Jr. Director, Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti. "Although "Beyond Shock" brings back sad and tragic memories, it is also very moving, and so well researched and written that it is most interesting to read." -- Tania Patriota, GBV officer, UNFPA For information about the book go to: http://www.beyondshock.blogspot.com.

"[Sets] the stage for a rewriting of nearly a thousand years of history to create new understandings of the nature of cultural encounters. . . . The volume breaks free from the polemics of present-day politics and historicist distortions that have seeped into most standard texts."--David Lelyveld, Cornell University This collection challenges the popular presumption that Muslims and Hindus are irreconcilably different groups, inevitably conflicting with each other.

BEYOND Blame: Learning From Failure and Success
₱ 1,526.00
Galleon

Failure is inevitable. Our increasingly complex world demands that we continuously learn from failures (and successes) in order to survive and thrive. And yet, our learning is too often undermined. We construct biased but comfortable stories, which often feature a simple, single "root cause"--a villain, someone to take the blame. Having done that, we short-circuit the possibility of developing any deeper understanding of the complex systems we work with. With this common approach, our systems will become more fragile and drift into failure. In this concise and entertaining book, I.T. veteran Dave Zwieback describes an incident that threatens the very existence of a large financial institution, and the counterintuitive steps its leadership took to stop the downward spiral. Their novel approach is grounded in proven concepts from complexity science, resilience engineering, human factors, cognitive science, and organizational psychology. It allows us to identify the underlying conditions for failure, and make our systems (and organizations) safer and more resilient. Get a clear understanding of the downside of blame Learn how to identify (and counteract) cognitive biases in groups See how organizations can determine the real root cause of problems Establish real accountability with your organization Use the Learning Review Framework to fully learn from failures of complex systems Find practical insights and tips for moving beyond blame in your own organization

BEYOND Belief: Agnostic Musings for 12 Step Life: finally, a daily reflection book for nonbelievers, freethinkers and everyone
₱ 2,285.00
Galleon

Finally, a daily reflection book for everyone from Rebellion Dogs Publishing. Beyond Belief is the first secular daily reflection book written in a contemporary language for today's addicts and alcoholics in recovery. From the Foreword by Dr. Ernie Kurtz (author of Not God: A History of Alcoholics Anonymous & The Spirituality of Imperfection): "The book is aimed at a general 12-Step readership, but it is mindful that there heretofore exist no such aids for unbelievers, freethinkers, and the unconventionally spiritual. Given that the latest Pew Research survey found that twenty percent of the American people list their religious affiliation as 'None,' it is certainly time that the Recovery world took into consideration this population's needs. Beyond Belief addresses that need in a confident, non-aggressive way. I doubt that any believer will find anything objectionable in its pages. This believer, for one, finds much that is spiritually helpful." Nothing is sacred and nothing is forbidden; we draw from classic and contemporary 12-Step wisdom and we explore philosophy, psychology, entertainment, art, spiritual musings, skeptical inquiry and the uncanny wisdom in the rooms. Professional and 12&12 Member reviews: Melissa D., Clinical Psychologist, California says, “I have never seen a daily devotional book written for agnostics. I found the readings to be extremely thought provoking. I wonder sometimes since there is such talk about God at meetings, what kind of turn-off that must be for agnostics. I think this book will be very helpful to both the newcomer and the mature 12 Step member.” Bob K, contributor to AAagnositca.org says, “I expected his book to be good. It’s WAY, WAY better than good. The book is outstanding. Two decades of not being a ‘daily reflections’ kind of guy, are over. Now I have reflections worth reflecting over! Buy this book or you will suffer a horrible and painful death! Well, maybe not, but you’ll be missing out on something very good.” Denis K. says, “Many thanks for this great book; my Monday night group and I are having some great discussions related to the daily musings both at the group and often during the week over coffee. All of us were quickly losing interest in the local meetings; Beyond Belief: Agnostic Musings for 12 Step Life gave all of us a much needed spark that has renewed our interest in the fellowship.” Christopher Burn, writer, psychotherapist, blogger, remarks, "Almost everything about the book looks ground breaking and thought provoking, from its interactive format (on the Kindle version you can browse through a hundred or so linked topics such as 'Brain Chemistry', 'Gratitude' or 'Zen'), to its edgy literary style." The book includes an index of over 120 topics, extensive notes and a bibliography.

BEYOND Right and Wrong: The Power of Effective Decision Making for Attorneys and Clients
₱ 11,331.00
Galleon

Let us endeavor to see things as they are, and then enquire whether we ought to complain. Whether to see life as it is, will give us much consolation, I know ¬ but the consolation which is drawn from truth if any there be, is solid and durable: that which may be derived from errour, must be, like its original, fallacious and fugitive. Samuel Johnson, Letter to Bennet Langton (1758) Attorneys and clients make hundreds of decisions in every litigation case. From initially deciding which attorney to retain to deciding which witnesses to call at trial, from deciding whether to ?le a complaint to deciding whether to appeal a verdict, attorneys and clients make multiple, critical decisions about strategies, costs, arguments, valuations, evidence and negotiations. Once made, these de- sions are scrutinized by an opponent intent on exploiting the consequences of any mistake. In this intense and adversarial arena, decision-making errors often are transparent, irreversible and dispositive, wielding the power to bankrupt clients and dissolve law ?rms. Although attorneys and clients may regard sound decision making as incidental to effective lawyering, sound decision making actually is the essence of effective lawyering. An attorney’s knowledge, intelligence and experience are inert re- urces until the attorney decides how to deploy those skills to serve the client’s interests. Those decisions, in turn, largely determine a case’s course and outcome.

BEYOND Networks Interlocutory Coalitions, the European and Global Legal Orders (Studies in European Economic Law and Regulation)
₱ 7,660.00
Galleon

This book explores the activism promoted by organised networks of civil society actors in opening up possibilities for more democratic supranational governance. It examines the positive and negative impact that such networks of civil society actors – named “interlocutory coalitions” – may have on the convergence of principles of administrative governance across the European legal system and other supranational legal systems. The book takes two main controversial aspects into account: the first relates to the convergence between administrative rules pertaining to different supranational regulatory systems. Traditionally, the spread of methods of administrative governance has been depicted primarily against the background of the interactions between the domestic and the supranational arena, both from a top-down and bottom-up perspective. However, the exploration of interactions occurring at the supranational level between legal regimes is still not grounded on adequate empirical evidence. The second controversial aspect considered in this book consists of the role of civil society actors operating at the supranational level. In its discussion of the first aspect, the book focuses on the relations between the European administrative law and the administrative principles of law pertaining to other supranational regulatory regimes and regulators, including the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the World Trade Organization, the United Nations, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the Asian Development Bank, and the Council of Europe. The examination of the second aspect involves the exploration of the still little examined, but crucial, role of civil society organised networks in shaping global administrative law. These “interlocutory coalitions” include NGOs, think tanks, foundations, universities, and occasionally activists with no formal connections to civil society organisations. The book describes such interlocutory coalitions as drivers of harmonized principles of participatory democracy at the European and global levels. However, interlocutory coalitions show a number of tensions (e.g. the governability of coalitions, the competition among them) that may hamper the impact they have on the reconfiguration of individuals’ rights, entitlements and responsibilities in the global arena.

BEYOND Barbie and Mortal Kombat: New Perspectives on Gender and Gaming (The MIT Press)
₱ 2,825.00
Galleon

Girls and women as game players and game designers in the new digital landscape of massively multiplayer online games, “second lives,” “modding,” serious games, and casual games.Ten years after the groundbreaking From Barbie to Mortal Kombat highlighted the ways gender stereotyping and related social and economic issues permeate digital game play, the number of women and girl gamers has risen considerably. Despite this, gender disparities remain in gaming. Women may be warriors in World of Warcraft, but they are also scantily clad “booth babes” whose sex appeal is used to promote games at trade shows. Player-generated content has revolutionized gaming, but few games marketed to girls allow “modding” (game modifications made by players). Gender equity, the contributors to Beyond Barbie and Mortal Kombat argue, requires more than increasing the overall numbers of female players. Beyond Barbie and Mortal Kombat brings together new media theorists, game designers, educators, psychologists, and industry professionals, including some of the contributors to the earlier volume, to look at how gender intersects with the broader contexts of digital games today: gaming, game industry and design, and serious games. The contributors discuss the rise of massively multiplayer online games (MMOs) and the experience of girl and women players in gaming communities; the still male-dominated gaming industry and the need for different perspectives in game design; and gender concerns related to emerging serious games (games meant not only to entertain but also to educate, persuade, or change behavior). In today's game-packed digital landscape, there is an even greater need for games that offer motivating, challenging, and enriching contexts for play to a more diverse population of players.

BEYOND Tolerance: Child Pornography on the Internet
₱ 2,134.00
Galleon

Perhaps nothing evokes more universal disgust as child pornography. The world of its makers and users is so abhorrent that it is rarely discussed much less studied. Child pornographers have taken advantage of this and are successfully using the new electronic media to exchange their wares without detection or significant sanction. What are the implications of this threat for free speech and a free exchange of ideas on the internet? And how can we stop this illegal activity, which is so repugnant that even the most laissez-faire cyberlibertarians want it stamped out, if we know nothing about it? Philip Jenkins takes a leap onto the lower tiers of electronic media in this first book on the business of child pornography online. He tells the story of how the advent of the internet caused this deviant subculture to become highly organized and go global. We learn how the trade which operates on clandestine websites from Budapest or Singapore to the U.S. is easy to glimpse yet difficult to eradicate. Jenkins details how the most sophisticated transactions are done through a proxy, a “false flag” address, rendering the host computer, and participants, virtually unidentifiable. And these sites exist for only a few minutes or hours allowing on-line child pornographers to stay one step ahead of the law. This is truly a globalized criminal network which knows no names or boundaries, and thus challenges both international and U.S. law. Beyond Tolerance delves into the myths and realities of child pornography and the complex process to stamp out criminal activity over the web, including the timely debates over trade regulation, users' privacy, and individual rights. This sobering look and a criminal community contains lessons about human behavior and the law that none interested in media and the new technology can afford to ignore.

BEYOND Good and Evil (Penguin Classics)
₱ 1,184.00
Galleon

Friedrich Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil is translated from the German by R.J. Hollingdale with an introduction by Michael Tanner in Penguin Classics. Beyond Good and Evil confirmed Nietzsche's position as the towering European philosopher of his age. The work dramatically rejects the tradition of Western thought with its notions of truth and God, good and evil. Nietzsche demonstrates that the Christian world is steeped in a false piety and infected with a 'slave morality'. With wit and energy, he turns from this critique to a philosophy that celebrates the present and demands that the individual imposes their own 'will to power' upon the world. This edition includes a commentary on the text by the translator and Michael Tanner's introduction, which explains some of the more abstract passages in Beyond Good and Evil. Frederich Nietzsche (1844-1900) became the chair of classical philology at Basel University at the age of 24 until his bad health forced him to retire in 1879. He divorced himself from society until his final collapse in 1899 when he became insane. A powerfully original thinker, Nietzsche's influence on subsequent writers, such as George Bernard Shaw, D.H. Lawrence, Thomas Mann and Jean-Paul Sartre, was considerable. If you enjoyed Beyond Good and Evil you might like Nietzsche's Thus Spoke Zarathustra, also available in Penguin Classics. 'One of the greatest books of a very great thinker' Michael Tanner
