Product Description: This book shows how Sri Lanka’s civil war gradually undermined liberal democracy and caused the country to regress toward the current soft authoritarian dispensation. In doing so, it introduces the concept of 'ethnic supererogation,' a governing system built around the notion that a majority ethnic group and/or the state could go beyond the standard expectations to accommodate minority concerns and institute incentives for ethnic minorities to operate within a united state so as to preclude dissension and secession...read more

Theories of justice often fixate on purely normative, abstract principles unrelated to real-world situations. The philosopher and theorist Axel Honneth addresses this disconnect, and constructs a theory of justice derived from the normative claims of Western liberal-democratic societies and anchored in morally legitimate laws and institutionally established practices. Honneth's paradigm--which he terms "a democratic ethical life"--draws on the spirit of Hegel's Philosophy of Right and his own theory of recognition, demonstrating how concrete social spheres generate the principles of individual freedom and a standard for what is just. Using social analysis to re-found a more grounded theory of justice, he argues that all crucial actions in Western civilization, whether in personal relationships, market-induced economic activities, or the public forum of politics, share one defining characteristic: they require the realization of a particular aspect of individual freedom. This fundamental truth informs the guiding principles of justice, grounding and enabling a wide-ranging reconsideration of its nature and application.

This new edition of ESSENTIALS OF PSYCHOLOGY is the medium-sized text in a three-book set authored by Dennis Coon. The hallmark of all Dennis Coon's books is the pioneering use of the SQ3R (now SQ4R) learning system. SQ4R stands for Survey, Question, Read, Recite, Relate, and Review. His was the first text to embed this well respected learning system within a textbook. It is written with a student-friendly voice and is accompanied by a full complement of print and electronic ancillaries. This edition also features refinement of the pedagogy by expanding the Knowledge Builder sections of every chapter to incorporate a built in study guide for students. This text covers the basic set of topics commonly taught in the introductory course while also including a second Development chapter (Chapter 4), a separate chapter on Gender and Sexuality (Chapter 15), and a concluding chapter on significant Applications (Chapter 17).
