He argues that the concept of family resemblances, as that concept has been refined and extended in prototype theory in the contemporary cognitive sciences, is the most plausible analytical strategy for resolving the central problem of the book. In the solution proposed, religion is conceptualized as an affair of "more or less" rather than a matter of "yes or no," and no sharp line is drawn between religion and non-religion."--BOOK JACKET.

The European Union is a legal system unlike any other in history. It is also facing unprecedented challenges, controversies and uncertainty as the UK seeks to implement Brexit. At its heart, Law of the European Union aims to shed light on this unique forum by providing a clear and accessible overview of the constitutional arrangements of the Union, and the law and jurisprudence which underpins the substantive areas of core EU Law. Building on previous editions of the book by John Fairhurst, this 12th edition has been extensively reworked by a new author team to ensure it continues to meet the requirements of contemporary EU Law modules by: Streamlining its coverage to focus only on the constitutional law of the EU and the core substantive areas of free movement of people, workers and goods to reflect the typical LLB syllabus. Expanding coverage of direct effect, fundamental rights and the division of competences to provide more detailed information on these topics. Increasing the level of debate and analysis providing more nuanced coverage of the subject enabling the student reader to reflect on broad, underlying issues or controversies. Incorporating a range of new or improved features and diagrams to support learning including case boxes which explicitly highlight the facts, ruling and significance of each case discussed and reflection boxes which draw attention to key issues, discussion points and future possibilities. Weaving coverage of Brexit throughout.

The Encyclopedia of Immigration and Migration in the American West provides much more than ethnic groups crossing the plains, landing at ports, or crossing borders; this two-volume work makes the history of the American West an important part of the American experience. Through sweeping entries, focused biographies, community histories, economic enterprise analysis, and demographic studies, this Encyclopedia presents the tapestry of the West and its population during various periods of migration. The two volumes examine the settling of the West and include coverage of movements of American Indians, African Americans, and the often-forgotten role of women in the West's development.

The Post-Sovereign Constellation
Author: Agustín José Menéndez,John Erik Fossum
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
This volume offers a collection of articles by leading legal and political theorists. Originally intended as a celebration of MacCormick’s work on the occasion of the completion of the four-volume series on Law, State and Practical Reason, it has turned into a homage and salute after MacCormick’s passing. Cast in MacCormick’s reflexive spirit, the book presents a critical reconstruction of the Scottish philosopher’s work, with the aim of revealing the connections between law and democracy in his writings and furthering his insights in each specific field. Neil MacCormick made outstanding contributions to the understanding of law and democracy under conditions of pluralism. His institutional theory of law has elucidated the close connection between the normative character of law as a means of social integration and legal social practices. This has produced a synthesis of the key insights of the legal and political theories of Kelsen, Hart, Alexy and Dworkin, and has broken new ground by undermining the ‘monolithic’ and ‘nation-state’ centered character of standard legal theories.
