What is intellectual property? Should copyright laws be modified to accommodate new ways of transmitting information? The debate over such questions has reemerged with the growth of the Internet and other means of electronically storing information. Over 600 articles written from 1900 through 1995 are fully annotated in this bibliography. The citations cover a wide range of material, from humorous anecdotes in popular magazines to scholarly discussions in academic journals. The entries are divided into three parts: the money trail; the detection and proof of violations and the punishment of offenders; and defending one’s property. A lengthy introduction first details how the concept of intellectual property came into being and then focuses on how governments and other entities deal with the issue.

There exists in this world people who have no soul. Anyone who could inflict such endless cruelty on women and children is less than human. It's hard for me to find the precise words I can use to describe my feelings about this reading experience: deep sadness, blistering rage, and a need to take revenge. Intellectually, I know all this is counterproductive, and a punishment inflicted upon myself. However, Thirty-Three Secrets Arab Men Never Tell American Women: A Dissection of How Muslims Treat Women and Infidels is a wake-up call for any women who would let her heart rule her head in personal relationships, no matter what the cultural background or religion.

Escape! From An Arab Marriage, Cassandra's first book, includes her personal story and documented stories of other women who became involved with Arab/Muslim men who have come from the Middle East. The women in these stories have learned firsthand the truth of how women are thought of in Islamic societies that 6th century traditional abuse and cruelty toward women, alive and well today, is still an everyday part of married life to an Arab/Muslim which includes abduction of any children to countries such as Saudi Arabia where they are forced to remain and where their heartbroken mothers can never see them again or bring them home. Also included in this book is a list of Islamic characteristics of marriages to Arab/Muslim males and of premarital relationships virtually every woman who becomes involved with these individuals inevitably finds herself facing. Not only has Cassandra herself had to survive such an environment, every person whose story is in this book has been the victim of a nightmare relationships she did not realize could exist in real life and that this is only the tip of the iceberg. There are many such stories which are never told because the women are too ashamed, too beaten down, or too afraid to tell anyone for fear of dire consequences for themselves or their children.

This volume of ten collected articles stands out, at one level, as a contribution to Marginality studies. Its overarching concern is to identity the main contours of the representation of Muslim woman in post-Independence Indian Writings in English (1950-2000). So doing, it examines also whether this representation replicates or modifies the image of Muslim woman as ingrained in Western literary tradition. Among the writers discussed are Anita Desai, Shashi Deshpande, Shashi Tharoor, Manohar Malgonakr, Attia Hossain, Balwant Gargi, Rokeya Sakhawat Hossain, Amitav Kumar, Ruskin Bond, Qurratulain Hyder and a host of story writers of Indian regional languages. Besides, the Volume is an extensive Bibliography covering the discourse on Representation and Gender issues, with pointed reference to Muslim woman. New Book

This is a three-part complete study guide for the internationally acclaimed, best-selling author Jean Sasson’s Princess Trilogy, which includes one three-part guide on her most internationally acclaimed books: Princess: A True Story of Life Behind the Veil in Saudi Arabia, Princess Sultana’s Daughters, and Princess Sultana’s Circle. The study guides for all three books were extensively researched and written by Jon Gregson Crawford. Whether you’re a student, a member of a book club, someone traveling abroad to Saudi Arabia for the first time or perhaps a reader that has enjoyed the Princess Trilogy you will find a wealth of useful information. This three-part study guide is the only study guide for the Princess Trilogy that was approved by the author, Jean Sasson. Jean was meticulous in working with Jon to make certain that every single detail of the guide afforded her readers enough information so that it would truly encompass all three books. Reading the three-part study guide is like receiving an abridged course of the Princess books, by the person that can provide the best possible lesson, the author herself. It’s important to note that each of the books in the study guide includes an all-new interview with Jean Sasson and the study guide for Princess: A True Story of Life Behind the Veil in Saudi Arabia even includes a revealing interview with Princess Sultana (her first interview in eight years). For each specific book in the series, the study guide includes an in-depth book summary, character descriptions, chapter summaries (which includes detailed analyses of each chapter of each of the three books with specific quotes from the original text throughout the summaries), and study and discussion questions that will be prudent for everyone that plans to use the Princess Trilogy as an educational tool. Also included is a section with information about Saudi culture. Princess is the universal true story about a member of Saudi royalty, who, over the course of three books tells her personal life story, as well as the stories of her family and other people she has come into contact with throughout her life. Jean Sasson met and befriended Princess Sultana when she lived in Saudi Arabia for more than twelve years. The author was the first author and the only author to be granted such unprecedented access to a Saudi princess’s life. Jean Sasson’s books have been published worldwide, achieving bestseller status in nearly every country where it was published. The books about Princess Sultana have remained timeless because so little of Saudi culture has changed when it comes to the lives of Saudi women. All three books have been updated, and this information will be available in the new editions of the books, to be published in October 2012 and March 2013. It’s exciting that twenty years after its initial publication, there is an entirely new generation of readers who are enthusiastically embracing the books about Princess Sultana Al-Saud.
