Islamic Finance

Author: Michael Mahlknecht
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9783527503896
Release Date: 2008-12-22
Genre: Business & Economics

Das Buch von Michael Mahlknecht bietet eine umfassende Einführung in das islamische Finanzwesen, das weltweit und gerade auch in Europa stetig an Bedeutung und Umfang gewinnt. Interessant ist dabei vor allem, wie die ethischen Vorgaben von Finanzinstituten in der Praxis gewinnbringend umgesetzt werden, sei es von islamischen Instituten oder auch von konventionellen Banken, die islamische Finanzprodukte anbieten. Zunächst werden die ethischen Grundlagen dargestellt, die sich aus dem Islam (bzw. der Schari'a) ergeben, sowie die daraus resultierenden Besonderheiten des islamischen Finanzwesens im Vergleich zum konventionellen. Danach werden die einzelnen Finanzinstrumente, ihre Bedeutung und ihre Wirkungsweise erläutert, und mit zahlreichen, aktuellen Praxisbeispielen (und Berechnungsmethoden) ergänzt. Die Entwicklung des Marktes für islamische Finanzdienstleistungen wird ebenso geschildert wie neueste Produktinnovationen, um diese für die praktische Verwendung umsetzbar zu machen. Auch das regulatorische Umfeld, in dem sich das islamische Finanzwesen entwickelt, wird eingehend beschrieben.

Jews and Christians

Author: Tobias Nicklas
Publisher: Mohr Siebeck
ISBN: 3161532686
Release Date: 2014-07-24
Genre: Religion

When exactly did the "Parting of the Ways" between Jews and Christians take place? Was it already Jesus who separated himself and his followers from "the Jews"? Or did Paul with his mission of pagans make the decisive step? Or do we have to wait longer - until after 70 CE, when the Jerusalem Temple was destroyed? In his new book, which goes back to the 2013 Deichmann lectures at Ben Gurion University, Beersheva, Tobias Nicklas shows that the above question is formulated inadequately. Instead, one has to distinguish between the situations of different groups (and even individuals) in different historical circumstances. To show this, Nicklas discusses images of "Jews" in early Christian writings, concepts of Israel's God and his Covenant with Israel, "Christological" and "Ecclesiological" hermeneutics of the Scriptures, and matters of Halakha for believers in Christ.

Gleich und anders

Author: Robert Aldrich
Publisher:
ISBN: 3938017813
Release Date: 2007
Genre:

Gleich und anders ist die erste umfassende Geschichte gleichgeschlechtlicher Beziehungen in globaler Perspektive. Zu allen Zeiten und überall auf der Welt hat sich ein Teil der Männer und Frauen nach einer intimen Beziehung zu Menschen des eigenen Geschlechts gesehnt. Das Buch zeigt, welchem Wandel gleichgeschlechtliche Sexualität unterlag: Ob der rituelle Sex der australischen Aborigines, die Liebe des geteilten Pfirsichs in der chinesischen Ming-Dynastie, die Männerbünde des Wilden Westens, die Garçonnes der Zwanziger Jahre oder die Ledermänner auf den Christopher-Street-Days, das Buch versammelt Beiträge aus allen Lebenswelten. Es bietet einen umfassenden Einblick in ein lange verborgenes Kapitel der Geschichte des privaten Lebens. Mit seinem kulturübergreifenden Blick widerlegt Gleich und anders die Vorstellung eines zeitlos gültigen Kanons "normaler" Sexualität. Der Band ist Ergebnis einer internationalen Koproduktion: Zu den Autoren zählen renommierte Wissenschaftler wie Laura Gowing, Dozentin für die Geschichte der frühen Neuzeit am King's College in London und Helmut Puff, Professor für Geschichte an der University of Michigan.
