Tortured Confessions PDF Books

Tortured Confessions

The role of torture in recent Iranian politics is the subject of Ervand Abrahamian's important and disturbing book. Although Iran officially banned torture in the early twentieth century, Abrahamian provides documentation of its use under the Shahs and of the widespread utilization of torture and public confession under the Islamic Republican governments. His study is based on an extensive body of material, including Amnesty International reports, prison literature, and victims' accounts that together give the book a chilling immediacy.

According to human rights organizations, Iran has been at the forefront of countries using systematic physical torture in recent years, especially for political prisoners. Is the government's goal to ensure social discipline? To obtain information? Neither seem likely, because torture is kept secret and victims are brutalized until something other than information is obtained: a public confession and ideological recantation. For the victim, whose honor, reputation, and self-respect are destroyed, the act is a form of suicide.

In Iran a subject's "voluntary confession" reaches a huge audience via television. The accessibility of television and use of videotape have made such confessions a primary propaganda tool, says Abrahamian, and because torture is hidden from the public, the victim's confession appears to be self-motivated, increasing its value to the authorities.

Abrahamian compares Iran's public recantations to campaigns in Maoist China, Stalinist Russia, and the religious inquisitions of early modern Europe, citing the eerie resemblance in format, language, and imagery. Designed to win the hearts and minds of the masses, such public confessions-now enhanced by technology-continue as a means to legitimize those in power and to demonize "the enemy."

Kushiel's Scion PDF Books

Kushiel's Scion

Imriel de la Courcel's birth parents are history's most reviled traitors, but his adoptive parents, the Comtesse Phedre and the warrior-priest Joscelin, are Terre d'Ange's greatest champions. Stolen, tortured and enslaved as a young boy, Imriel is now a Prince of the Blood; third in line for the throne in a land that revels in art, beauty and desire. It is a court steeped in deeply laid conspiracies...and there are many who would see the young prince dead. Some despise him out of hatred for his mother, Melisande, who nearly destroyed the entire realm in her quest for power. Others because they fear he has inherited his mother's irresistible allure...and her dangerous gifts. As he comes of age, plagued by unwanted desires, Imriel shares their fears. When a simple act of friendship traps Imriel in a besieged city where the infamous Melisande is worshiped as a goddess and where a dead man leads an army, the Prince must face his greatest test: to find his true self.

Shaping the Facts: Evidence-Based Nursing and Health Care PDF Books

Shaping the Facts: Evidence-Based Nursing and Health Care

This book is about current policies and political agendas that shape health care research. The authors critically examine evidence with reference to a range of issues such as efficiency and effectiveness, inequality and emotions. "Shaping the Facts" will assist the reader to: think critically about the ways in which evidence is constructed; assess a range of methodologies and tools for gathering evidence; review the influences of organisations and culture on evidence-based health care; and encourage reflection on the role of evidence in health care commissioning, managing, teaching and practice. The authors explore the relationship between research, knowledge and evidence and encourage the reader to seek different ways of 'seeing, thinking and knowing'. The book will interest a wide range of health care practitioners and students, including nurses, midwives and health visitors. It is highly recommended for final year diploma and degree students and those engaged in continuing professional development and post-graduate programmes. The book will include illustrative testimonies and exemplars of particular relevance to nurses, midwives and health visitors. These testimonies and exemplars will be compiled from literature and the authors' research. Different perspectives will be considered including the origins of effectiveness and efficiency in the NHS drawing on Archie Cochrane's classic text on the topic, randomized controlled trials, statistics, normalization and eugenics, qualitative approaches, eg narrative studies, autobiographical evidence, testimonies, participatory and action research, professional and lay perspectives. There will also be specific debate on methodologies and tools for generating evidence and the philosophies that drive them. The authors will also consider evidence-based teaching, the development of critical evaluation skills and strategies for practitioners to negotiate change in the current complex health care environment. Finally the authors will consider the broader issues of systems and organizational cultures that enhance or hinder the integration of evidence-based health care. Revan's classic studies on standards for morale and action learning will be drawn. Policies supporting the delivery of care will also be critically examined.

Market-Augmenting Government: The Institutional Foundations for Prosperity PDF Books

Market-Augmenting Government: The Institutional Foundations for Prosperity

As recently as 1990 policymakers and academics believed widely that all that was needed for dramatic increases in prosperity in transitional economies was to roll back the state. The arguments in this book present an articulate antidote to that assertion: While the state must withdraw from many activities involving direct production and exchange, it must provide good laws and enforce them for economies to prosper. In one chapter, Robert Summers brilliantly exposes the complexity of this requirement, listing eighteen minimum conditions for the creation of the rule of law. Other chapters describe the benefits of good commercial law on economic growth, the political foundations of American commercial law, how poor governance led to the Asian financial crisis, the institutional requirements for environmental markets, and constitutional structures that lead to efficient government. The contributors, renowned experts in their fields on the complex institutional requirements for prosperity, offer arguments from economic theory, economic history, legal theory, and political science. The chapters are simultaneously of high scholarly quality and intensely applicable. Indeed many of the ideas here are being used to design reform projects in developing countries. "Market-Augmenting Government" will appeal to legal theorists, economists, and political scientists, and in particular to institutional economists. Its writing is friendly to the general reader, with only a few of the chapters requiring specialized knowledge. The book will also figure importantly in policy circles as governance moves center stage in the practice of reform and development.
