Thisbook is distinctive because it will be a political science oriented introduction to The Federalist Papers. As most of the editions have introductions by historians, and some of them quite good, there is no readily available edition with a political science focus. Such a focus would not ignore the historical dimensions of the founding and that particular era, but would supplement this historical background with a concentration on the key questions political scientists tend to ask when reading and teaching The Federalist Papers. Questions of power, separation, blending, federalism, and structural design and how they impact the practice of government, questions we political scientists ask, will be the central feature of this edition. The primary audience for this edition would be courses in American Political Thought, American Government (most of which include components of the Federalist Papers) plus courses on the Presidency, Congress, The Judiciary, and Federalism.
Guidance on good governance in the Quran is enthralling. Over and over again the Quran states that good governance stakeholders must beware of leaders like Pharaoh, and policies must not be like those of the people of Noah, the people of Lot and exploiters of the land. Decision making too must be based on mutual consent and overall welfare of the community - upholding justice, rule of law, sharing community resources, promotion of fair trading and ridding off corruption and economic injustice. In a nutshell good governance is allowing only sincere persons use their common sense to decide on policies and in the implementation of those policies because they have nothing to hide thus there will little barriers to being transparent in the process of decision making and their execution. They are humble enough to submit to God's decrees wholeheartedly without any notions of their creed and custom ways are superior to people of other creed. Just refer to verses Q2:42 and Q5:48 of the Quran. This White Paper on Norms for Good Governance in the Quran is intended to be an introduction to how government departments, public and private organizations as well as individuals can apply Islamic principles to enhance work ethics, increase productivity and service levels, prosper the local community and the nation as a whole through higher standards of living. Diagnostic studies on the specific measures needed for each unit must of course be tailored fit to encompass each unit's unique situation and circumstances. Good governance is about getting priorities right for the nation and specific communities with regards to policies for their security, welfare and economic and non-economic activities as well as to how they may conduct personal inter-relationships and use of personal liberties. To a certain extent policies based on Islamic principles surpasses any welfare state configurations because there would be no free-loaders, lesser demand on public funding to all cooked-up causes and less room for unscrupulous corrupt practitioners to flourish. There are enablers to promote better governance of society and to make the economic system more equitable. This is covered in Section E of this white paper. Section D will address work ethics, fair business practices and what constitutes exploitation

The secret to becoming a happier wife is to have a happier husband. Many times, it really is that simple. But it was a lesson I needed to learn, and one I continue to aim to put into practice. The reason I began this project is because God convicted me. That is nearly always the case. Whatever I write about, whatever words from God I seek to share with you, He has already shared with me. Convicted me of is a better way to explain it. I am no expert. I am merely on this journey with you, and am honored to be along for the ride. God did convict me, and brought me to the conclusion that I needed to be a better wife. One day I was praying. I was praying for my husband. I was crying out to God for ways I could help my husband. I did that for a while. Then, God answered me. But He did not give me instructions on how to "fix" my husband and the current situation we were in. God told me it was my job to be the best wife I could be. God told me to do my job. God also led me to Proverbs 31:10-31 and said, "Here's how you do it." Please don't misunderstand me. My error was not in praying for my husband, it was in the misplaced prayers. Somehow, I always find that God has a way of turning my pointing finger back in my face. Hence, She Brings Him Good: 31 days to becoming a happier wife was born. For 31 days, we'll discover a bit of wisdom to become more like the Proverbs 31 woman. Each day consists of a portion of Scripture and a short piece I've written. There's also space provided as a "Conversation Starter" between you and God as a way to respond to each day's reading. I encourage you to make use of this journaling time. For me, it is always a special time when God speaks to me more clearly and gives me direction on how to live out His Word. I pray the words shared here help you draw closer to your heavenly Father and closer to your earthly husband. Here's to becoming a happier wife.
Nearly a hundred years since its publication, E. G. Browne's A Literary History of Persia remains a classic work in English on the subject. Spanning four volumes, it took Browne over 25 years to write and whilst it concentrates on Persian literature, it surveys many aspects of Persian culture from pre-history to the twentieth century. Volume one covers the period from the earliest periods of Persian history until Firdawsi (AD 935-1020) a highly revered poet. Volume two looks at the early medieval period and in particular on the poet Saadi (1184-1283). Volume three focuses on the Tartar Dominion (1265-1502) and volume four 'Modern Times' covers from 1500 to 1924. A remarkable achievement upon first publication, Cambridge University Press is pleased to be able to bring its edition of this seminal work back into print.
