4 Family and the Courts in Modern Egypt: A Study Based on Decisions by the Shari'a Courts 1900-1955

Ron Shaham

E.J. Brill, Leiden, The Netherlands, 1997, 90-04-10742-8 / 9789004107427, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
This important new study describes and analyzes the response of Egyptian society, as reflected in court decisions, to legal reform pertaining to matters of personal status and succession during the first half of the twentieth century. The main issues in this regard are the extent to which traditional law and legal reform are implemented or circumvented in daily practice, and the role of the judges in this process. Family and the Courts in Modern Egypt contains three parts: marriage, divorce, and intergenerational relations. Scholars and the general reader will find its main contribution to be its systematic analysis of court records relating to the application of modern reforms in family matters; and its attempt to situate the legal aspects of family life within the larger context of socio-economic development in Egyptian society.

5 God Vs. The Gavel: Religion and the Rule of Law

Marci A. Hamilton

Cambridge University Press, New Delhi, India, 2005, 0-521-85304-4 / 9780521853040, First Paperback Edition, Paperback, New, 150 x 230 Mm 
God vs. the Gavel challenges the pervasive assumption that all religious conduct deserves constitutional protection. While religious conduct provides many benefits to society, it is not always benign. The thesis of the book is that anyone who harms another person should be governed by the laws that govern everyone else - and truth be told, religion is capable of great harm. This may not sound like a radical proposition, but it has been under assault since the 1960s. The majority of academics and many religious organisations would construct a fortress around religious conduct that would make it extremely difficult to prosecute child abuse by clergy, medical neglect of children by faith-healers, and other socially unacceptable behaviours. This book intends to change the course of the public debate over religion by bringing to the publicís attention the tactics of religious entities to avoid the law and therefore harm others. ?Timely and topical in light of recent revelations concerning the clergy ?Eye-opening and in parts, shocking ?An interesting insight into American law and religion Contents Part I. Why the Law Must Govern Religious Entities: 1. The problem; 2. Children; 3. Marriage; 4. Schools; 5. Property rights and taxes; 6. The military and the prisons; 7. Discrimination; Part II.

7 The Juvenile Justice System in India: From Welfare to Rights

Ved Kumari

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2004, 0-19-566551-1 / 9780195665512, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
The Constitution of India envisages for Indian children a happy and healthy childhood, free of abuse and exploitation. However, the reality of daily life for vast numbers of children is completely disconnected from this vision. In the case of juveniles facing the law enforcement machinery, the siutation is even more poignant. This book is a comprehensive and thought provoking examination of the working of the juvenile justice system in India as it exists today and how it has developed historically. Acording to the author, the problem of neglected and delinquent children can only be understood and dealt with in the context of the wider concept of child rights. The objectives of the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2000, are to ensure the care and protection of children, to provide for their development and rehabilitation, and most significantly, to reorient the law regarding juveniles acording to the standards and rules prescribed by the United Nations. Large n umbers of children in India live in conditions of deprivation and in circumstances which can easily lead them to crime. The author shows how, despite the best of intentions, lack of coordination betwen various juvenile justice agencies causes the whole system to be dysfunctional. Using the insights ofered by this analysis, Ved Kumari strongly advocates the adoption of a systemic and holistic approach to juvenile justice, where each agency, from the police to the rehabilitation and training institutes, is kept aware of the objectives of the system. Further, she ofers a critical analysis of the factors which have so far prevented the development of a viable and beneficial juvenile justice system. Printed Pages: 376. 013858
