Religious Liberty and the Law

Author: Angus J. L. Menuge
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781351982665
Release Date: 2017-07-20
Genre: Law

Questions of religious liberty have become flashpoints of controversy in virtually every area of life around the world. Despite the protection of religious liberty at both national and supranational levels, there is an increasing number of conflicts concerning the proper way to recognize it – both in modern secular states and in countries with an established religion or theocratic mode of government. This book provides an analysis of the general concept of religious liberty along with a close study of important cases that can serve as test beds for conflict resolution proposals. It combines the insights of both pure academics and experienced legal practitioners to take a fresh look at the nature, scope and limits of religious liberty. Divided into two parts, the collection presents a blend of legal and philosophical approaches, and draws on cases from a wide range of jurisdictions, including Brazil, India, Australia, the USA, the Netherlands, and Canada. Presenting a broad range of views, this often provocative volume makes for fascinating reading for academics and researchers working in the areas of law and religion, legal philosophy and human rights.

Die Macht der Geographie

Publisher: Deutscher Taschenbuch Verlag
ISBN: 9783423428569
Release Date: 2015-11-20
Genre: History

Wie Geografie Geschichte macht Weltpolitik ist auch Geopolitik, denn alle Staatschefs unterliegen den Zwängen der Geographie. Berge und Ebenen, Wasser, Sand und Eis setzen ihrem Entscheidungsspielraum Grenzen. In 10 Kapiteln zeigt Tim Marshall knapp, anschaulich und pointiert, wie Geographie Geschichte macht und gemacht hat: in Russland, China, den USA, in Europa, Afrika, Lateinamerika, Indien und Pakistan, Japan und Korea, dem Nahen Osten, der Arktis und in Grönland: Regierungen kommen und gehen, der Hindukusch bleibt.

Release Date: 2007
Genre: Foreign Language Study

In diesem Buch geht es um die Rolle der sogenannten Laien in der Kirche. Am Beispiel der Ostkirche von Kinshasa (Demokratische Republik Kongo) wird die Frage der kleinen christlichen Gemeinschaften und der Dienstamter fur Laien in der Kirche erortert. Kardinal Malula von Kinshasa (1947-1989) hat in seiner Erzdiozese die Einsichten des Zweiten Vatikanischen Konzils uber die Kirche als Volk Gottes in einem einzigartigen Prozess der Rezeption des Konzils in die Praxis umgesetzt. Um die missionarische Kraft der christlichen Gemeinschaften in der Grossstadt Kinshasa zu starken, hat er die aus der Kolonialzeit ubernommenen, riesigen Pfarreien in kleine christliche Gemeinschaften unterteilt und den Laien in eigens eingerichteten Dienstamtern auch innerkirchlich weitreichende Verantwortung ubertragen. Das Buch stellt die Ortskirche von Kinshasa und ihre Erfahrungen in den letzten Jahrzehnten vor und diskutiert die theologische Tragweite der kleinen christlichen Gemeinschaften und der Laiendienstamter im Sinne einer missionarischen und prophetischen Kirche.

Number 9 Dream

Author: David Mitchell
Publisher: Rowohlt Verlag GmbH
ISBN: 9783644043916
Release Date: 2014-06-02
Genre: Fiction

Tagträume und Albträume in Tokio. Der neunzehnjährige Träumer Eiji Miyake kommt aus dem ländlichen Japan nach Tokio, um seinen Vater zu suchen, der die Familie früh verlassen hat. Während er in der faszinierenden großen Stadt herumirrt, gerät er in Berührung mit den Kräften, die ihre geheime Unterwelt beherrschen: Yakuza-Gangs und Cyberpunks. Plötzlich ist das Rätsel der Identität seines Vaters nur noch eines von vielen, die er lösen muss. Warum ist die Grenze zwischen der Welt seiner Erfahrungen und der seiner Träume so verschwommen? Und was hat es mit dem Geheimnis der Zahl 9 auf sich? Diese Fragen verlangen Eiji Einsichten ab, die jedem schwerfielen, erst recht einem Jungen vom Lande, der weniger Geld in der Tasche hat, als das titelgebende Album mit dem Lennon-Song kostet. «Das ist nicht nur ein Vergnügen, das ist große, wirklich großartige Literatur.» (The Observer) «David Mitchell ist atemberaubend gut, einer der besten Erzähler seiner Generation.» (Neue Zürcher Zeitung) «Eine irre Mischung aus Thriller, Tragödie, Fantasy, Videospiel und ein beunruhigendes Panorama des modernen Tokio.» (The Guardian) «‹Number 9 Dream› ist so voller Geschichten, so voller verschiedenster Ebenen, dass der Roman schier zu zerbersten droht. Dass das Ganze trotz allem lesbar bleibt und die Lektüre wirklich Spaß macht, beweist, dass Mitchell einer der interessantesten Autoren der Jetztzeit ist.» (ORF) «Ein hochpoetisches Buch über Selbsterkenntnis und Nachhausekommen.» (Neon)
