Compiled Tranlated and Annotated By Alam Eldin,Dr.Mohie Eldin I.
The Arbitral Awards of the Cairo Regional Centre for International Commercial Arbitration are compiled, translated and commented on by Dr Mohie Eldin I. Alam Eldin, former member of the ICC International Court of Arbitration in Paris and currently lawyer at the Egyptian Court of Cassation, and have a preface by Dr M.I.M. Aboul-Enein, Director of the Cairo Regional Centre for International Commercial Arbitration. The Cairo Regional Centre for International Commercial Arbitration (CRCICA) was established in 1979 as an independent international arbitral organization with jurisdiction over the Arab countries of West Asia and Africa. The CRCICA Rules, modelled initially on the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules, were revised in 1998 to take account of changing provisions and practices in international arbitration. The Arbitral Awards of the Cairo Regional Centre for International Commercial Arbitration addresses many significant issues and questions, including the following: do rules of limitation have a role in arbitration?; how greatly do administrative contracts differ from civil contracts in the closing years of this century?; obtaining permissions of works - is this the task of the employer or the contractor?; what can the arbitrator do if several exchange rates apply to the consideration of a contract? This volume contains a collection of arbitral awards made up to 1996, with those made originally in Arabic translated into English. The editors have summarized each award and included commentary where appropriate, and the awards are followed by legislative or statutory articles as relevant. The text contains arbitral awards covering a broad range of topics including, among others, aviation, supply of services and material, construction, commercial agency, maritime transport, and interpretation of contracts.258pp.N.B.Slight fade mark to base of spine.

Nielsen, Kai; Edited By Seymour, Michel and Fritsch, Matthias
Kai Nielsen has been the towering figure of Canadian philosophy over the last forty years. In this discussion and appreciation of Nielsen's work, highly respected specialists in the philosophy of religion, philosophical methodology (or metaphilosophy), and moral and political philosophy consider various aspects of his voluminous contributions and, at the same time, provide broad access to current philosophical debates. The volume contains not only twenty original papers on Nielsen's thought, but also his detailed responses to these critical essays. Among the outstanding contributors are Antony Kenny (philosophy and religion), Richard Rorty(methodology/metaphilosophy), Steven Lukes (Marxism), Norman Daniels (global justice), and Kok Chor Tan (nationalism). Despite the wide variety of these themes, Nielsen's body of work and his responses here show that it is possible to develop a systematic approach that links difference areas of philosophy within one perspective. This stimulating collection will thus attract readers in many different specialities. 431pp.

Gaon,Saadya ; Frank, Daniel (editor); ; Altmann, Alexander (translator)
Saadya ben Joseph al-Fayyumi (882-942), gaon (head) of the rabbinic academy at Sura and one of the pre-eminent Jewish thinkers of the medieval period, attempted to create a complete statement of Jewish religious philosophy in which all strands of philosophical thought were to be knit into a unified system. In "The Book of Doctrines and Beliefs", Saadya sought to rescue believers from 'a sea of doubt and the waters of confusion' into which they had been cast by Christianity, Islam, and other faiths. By employing philosophical - or kalamic - argumentation to examine and defend traditional Jewish beliefs, Saadya hoped to turn blind faith into conviction based on rational understanding. First published in 1946, and reprinted here without alteration, Alexander Altmann's judicious abridgement of his own translation has remained the standard edition of this influential work. A new Introduction by Daniel Frank sets Saadya's work in its broader historical, cultural, and philosophical contexts. 194pp.
