            My favourite Ayatollah, Ali Khamenei, recently said that it is a religious duty for people to vote in Iran's election and strengthen the Republic against the propaganda of its enemies. Participating in elections and voting... is a religious duty, not just a national or revolution...ary duty, Mr Ali Khamenei said in a speech. Elections nullify many of the vicious plots the Americans have in their minds and Zionists have in their hearts against the country, he said. The author's opinion: This is a counter-productive approach by Mr Ali Khamenei; as the cycle of violence must finally end between Iran and the US. And the solutions can only be found in a political process - meaning through dialogue and peacebuilding; so that peace, prosperity and human dignity can be restored in Iran - and that Persia can once again become the Jewel of the Orient, she once was! So in the 2021 Iranian presidential election, citizens should not vote for violence and hostility; but rather for peace, prosperity and reconciliation!

            This book provides in-depth comparative analysis of how religious penal clauses have been developed and employed within Asian common law states, and the impact of such developments on constitutional rights. By examining the theoretical and conceptual underpinnings of religious of...fences as well as interrogating the nature and impact of religious penal clauses within the region, it contributes to the broader dialogue in relation to religious penal clauses globally, whether in countries which practice forms of secular or religious constitutionalism. Asian practice is significant in this respect, given the centrality of religion to social life and indeed, in some jurisdictions, to constitutional or national identity. Providing rigorous studies of common law jurisdictions that have adopted similar provisions in their penal code, the contributors provide an original examination and analysis of the use and development of these religious offence clauses in their respective jurisdictions. They draw upon their insights into the background sociopolitical and constitutional contexts to consider how the inter-relationship of religion and state may determine the rationale and scope of religious offences. These country chapters inform the conceptual examination of religious views and sentiments as a basis for criminality and the forms of 'harm' that attract legal safeguards. Several chapters examine these questions from a historical and comparative perspective, considering the underlying bases, scope, as well as evolving objectives of these provisions. Through these examinations, the book critically interrogates the legacy of colonialism on the criminal law and constitutional practice of various Asian states.

            This edited collection presents an interesting and original series of essays on the roles of principle and pragmatism in Roman private law. The book traverses key areas of Roman law to examine the explanatory power of - and delineate interactions between - abstract, doctrinal pri...nciple, and pragmatic, real-world problem-solving. Essays canvassing sources of law, property, succession, contracts and delicts sketch the varied roles of theoretical narratives - whether internal to Roman doctrine or derived from external influence - and of practical, policy-based solutions in the jurists' thought. Principled reasoning in Roman juristic argument ranges from safeguarding commerce, to the priority of acts or intentions in property transactions, to notions of pietas, to Platonic conceptions of the market. Pragmatism is discernible in myriad ways, from divergence between form and substance, to extension of legal rules for economic, social or political utility, to emphasis on what parties did rather than what they said. The distinctive contribution of the book is its survey of different manifestations of principle and pragmatism across Roman private law. The essays -by eminent as well as emerging academics - will stimulate debates and shed new light on this topic, and will be of interest to both scholars and students of Roman law.

            Over 600 civilians have been killed and 25.000 have been injured in anti-government protests in Iraq since October 2019, in what has become an uprising against the government of Iraq; as despite the Opec member country's vast oil wealth, many Iraqis live in poverty or have limite...d access to clean water, electricity, basic healthcare and education - Iraq still struggling to recover from years of conflict following the dictatorship of Saddam Hussein, a foreign occupation, civil war and an Islamic State insurgency... Also, it would seem that former Iraqi Prime Minister - Mr Adel Abdul-Mahdi - was responsible for kidnappings, torture and assassinations of activists and journalists since protests began. Hence it is very important that Prime Minister-designate Mohammed Allawi and President Salih, finally put an end to this extremely negative and counter-productive approach of silencing protestors with brute force, kidnappings and killings - so that peace and prosperity can be manifested in this beautiful country.

            Traditionally, human rights have protected those facing the sharp edge of the criminal justice system. But over time human rights law has become increasingly infused with duties to mobilise criminal law towards protection and redress for violation of rights. These developments gi...ve rise to a whole host of questions concerning the precise parameters of coercive human rights, the rationale(s) that underpin them, and their effects and implications for victims, perpetrators, domestic legal systems, and for the theory and practice of human rights and criminal justice. This collection addresses these questions with a focus on the rich jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights. The collection explores four interlocking themes surrounding the issue of coercive human rights: (1) Key threads in the doctrine of the European Court of Human Rights on duties to mobilise the criminal law as a means of delivering human rights protection. (2) Factors that contribute to a readiness to demand coercive measures, including discrimination and vulnerability, and other key justificatory reasoning shaping the development of coercive human rights. (3) The most pressing challenges for the ECtHR's coercive duties doctrine, including: - how it relates to theories and rationales of criminalisation and criminal punishment; - its implications for the fundamental tenets of human rights law itself; - its relationship to transitional justice objectives; and - how (far) it coheres with the imperative of effective protection for persons in precarious or vulnerable situations. (4) The (prospective) evolution of coercive human rights doctrine and its application within national jurisdictions.

            William Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England (1765-69) is perhaps the most elegant and influential legal text in the history of the common law. By one estimate, Blackstone has been cited well over 10,000 times in American judicial opinions alone. Prominent in recent r...eassessment of Blackstone and his works, Wilfrid Prest also convened the Adelaide symposia which have now generated two collections of essays: Blackstone and his Commentaries: Biography, Law, History (2009), and Re-Interpreting Blackstone's Commentaries: A Seminal Text in National and International Contexts (2014). This third collection focuses on Blackstone's critics and detractors. Leading scholars examine the initial reception of the Commentaries in the context of debates over law, religion and politics in eighteenth-century Britain and Ireland. Having shown Blackstone's volumes to be a contested work of the Enlightenment, the remaining chapters assess critical responses to Blackstone on family law, the status of women and legal education in Britain and America. While Blackstone and his Commentaries have been widely lauded and memorialised in marble, this volume highlights the extent to which they have also attracted censure, controversy and disparagement.
