Women Writers In Francophone A (french

RRP $299.99

In the rapidly growing field of African literature in French, writing by women has largely been ignored. This book, the first comprehensive study of women's writing in francophone sub-Saharan Africa, redressess the critical imbalance and celebrates the originality of this fascinating new literature.

Considering questions of genre and ideology, the author highlights the tension between the individualistic act of writing and the collective tradition of African society - a tension which emerges as the key to each of the texts discussed. Focusing on four major authors - Mariama Bâ, Aminata Sow Fall, Werewere Liking and Calixthe Beyala, each with an international reputation - the book uses a feminist approach to consider the duality of the African woman, who is often torn between modernity and tradition. This duality, the author suggests, is reconfigured through fictional writings which provide a space for alternative female subjectivities to emerge.


A Panjabi Phonetic Reader

RRP $16.99

The PREFACE:

THIS Reader is intended to help those wishing to acquire a colloquial knowledge of Panjabi.

The pronunciation of the language is here for the first time represented on strictly phonetic principles without regard to the affinities of the words with cognate words of other languages. This is the method recommended by our foremost language teachers, and now widely used in England in connexion with the teaching of French and other European languages. The method has the approval of the Board of Education (see Circular No. 797, a memorandum on methods of Modern Language Teaching issued in 1912, ยงยง 36, 37).

The system of transcription used is that of the International Phonetic Association, this being the alphabet almost universally adopted in England in those schools and colleges where languages are taught on phonetic principles. The success with which the adoption of this system has been attended in connexion with European languages is ample justification for its introduction to a language to which it is new.

The criticisms of phonetic methods by some who have had no experience of these methods render it desirable to point out that the object of phonetic transcription is not to teach the student how to form speech sounds; its object is to teach him how to use the right sound in the right place in connected speech. The formation of the isolated sounds is best learned by careful imitation coupled with a knowledge of phonetic theory (that is, a study of the positions of the organs of speech in forming the correct sounds) and the practice of suitable phonetic exercises.

Mr. Grahame Bailey's unique qualifications for writing such a reader as the present are well-known to most of those interested in the Panjabi language. But for the benefit of those who may not already have heard of his work it may be mentioned that he is one of those very rare Englishmen who can speak an Indian language exactly like a native, and that he is the author of the Northern Panjabi translation of the New Testament and joint author of the only existing Northern Panjabi grammar.

Testimony as to the accuracy, of Mr. Bailey's work is therefore needless. It may, however, interest readers to know that I had an opportunity, when in Lahore in January 1913, of testing one of his phonetic texts with some native Panjabis; the text was pronounced by them to be absolutely correct, and they expressed great astonishment when they learned that it had been prepared by an Englishman.


Francophone Post-colonial Cultures

RRP $304.99

The recent rise of Francophone studies within French studies has created the need for a one-volume exploration of the range of expression in the French language following the colonial period. Francophone Post-Colonial Cultures collects discussions of literary texts and cultural identity from Europe, North Africa, the Caribbean, and South Asia--regions of the world that seem to have only the French language in common. Despite enormous differences among all the countries where French is spoken, Francophone literatures tend to deal with a similar spread of issues. This volume positions the study of the Francophone world and its cultures as a comparative project, in which post-colonial Francophone cultures and the specific alterity of these cultures emerge as inextricable from and essential to an understanding of modern France. Organized by region, boasting an international roster of contributors, and including summaries of selected creative and critical works and a guide to selected terms and figures, Francophone Post-Colonial Cultures is an ideal resource for scholars of French literature and advanced students looking to read beyond the French literary canon.


The International Criminal Court

RRP $246.99

This book is intended to analyze and evaluate the Statute of the International Criminal Court which was newly created at the United Nations Diplomatic Conference in Rome, Italy on 17 July 1998 (The Rome Conference or the Conference). The book addresses a host of difficult questions and common questions the new permanent International Criminal Court (The ICC or The Court) can raise and possible answers to those questions. This book also records the legislative histories of each article of the ICC Statute and evaluates legal ramifications of the Statute. Even though the United States Government has argued the Rome Statute violates the law of treaties and is not consistent with international law, the author tries to prove that the Rome Statute does not violate the law of treaties and is consistent with international law. The Rome Statute is invaluable in that it codifies the present international law and international criminal law and procedure. The Statute, which was supported by 120 states in the world, summarize the present treaty law, customary international law and general principles of law, even though some contents of the Statute were watered down by some states.The author participated in the process for the adoption of the Rome Statute as a member of the Korean Delegation to the Rome Diplomatic Conference. Korea submitted a very important proposal on the jurisdiction of the Court, which the author was involved in, and tried to bridge the gaps between the U.S position and various other states' positions. On the basis of his own reservations and experiences at the Rome Conference, the author thinks the Rome Statute has delicate balances among various interests of countries and will be a great weapon for the World to fight with against the most heinous international crimes: genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and crimes of aggression.Therefore, this book is an insider's observation and a legislative history of the Rome Statute. However, the views appearing in this book are not those of the Korean Government, but solely those of the author as an international law scholar and a participant in the Rome Conference.Contents: 1. Introduction; 2. Commentary on articles of the Rome statute: Part 1: Establishment of the Court; Part 2: Jurisdiction, admissibility and applicable law; Part 3: General principles of criminal law; Part 4: Composition and administration of the court; Part 5: Investigation and prosecution; Part 6: The trial; Part 7: Penalties; Part 8: Appeal and revision; Part 9: International cooperation and judicial assistance; Part 10: Enforcement; Part 11: Assembly of states parties; Part 12: Financing; Part 13: Final clausesDr. Young Sok Kim has a B.A. (Law) and M.A. (Law) from Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea and an LL.M and J.S.D. (Doctor of the Science of Law) from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Illinois, U.S.A.
