This is not just a history book, but is an attempt to find a solution for the problem of Iran by the knowledge of past. This book starts from creation of the Universe and after reveiwing the vanished civilizations, gradually enters into history of Iran and Islam. History of Iran after Islam, together with important events in the other parts of the world, specially their advancements, have been analyzed. Until we sum up the last one hundred-year struggles of our country, in order to prove: The way to rescue Iran is a new constitution. History of Iran, simultaneously with events in the other parts of the world are studied, to find out what is really the problem with us? We have tries so hard and even had revolutions for freedom and never succeeded. In this book, lots of documents and articles have been copied from Internet Encyclopedias Wikipedia, National Geography, History and other websites. After reading these few hundred pages, we will conclude: Not having an ideal constitution in Iran is our problem. In the past thirty years, theft, corruption, murder, injustice, prostitution, drug addiction, insult to people’s believes, lies, torture and rape in prison and many other shameful behaviors in this Dictatorship Regime of the Ayatollahs, has super pass the level, or even higher than international record level. For many years these shameless behaviors have lost its sense of shame and hideousness. Force, reasoning, and million-people demonstrations and protests have no effect. More importantly, military intervention either by Sadam or in the future, only strengthen the regime. Unfortunately a lot of Iranians who inside and outside Iran randomly complain, they have hopes to reform the present regime or follow the failed monarchists or a group of traitor terrorists and most ridicules are those who believe “The 12th Emam Messiah” will come out of the “Chamkaran Well” and rescue this tired and weary nation. Before reforming or changing this regime, a constitution must be drafted and all of our campaign to be on this constitution’s framework. In that case, the opportunists in the future, like two previous Iranian revolutions, will not be able to steal our revolution and impose another dictatorship on Iran. After swearing to this new constitution, anybody can candid himself or herself for leadership. Only with an ideal new constitution, we can guarantee the death of dictatorship forever. Before raising the slogans to change this regime, first job, even in this age of freedom suffocations and suppressions in Iran, must be to draft an ideal new constitution. Fortunately, in this age of Internet, we can put our new constitution in a relative referendum and after having a constitution in hand; we can start our non-violence campaign. Our slogan must be “change of constitution”. Otherwise, “death to the dictator”, “equality between men and women”, “separation of religion and government”, “equality for all Iranian with any religion and political view”, “enforcing the international declaration of human right” and hundreds of other slogans, they all will be in this new constitution. In the past hundred year, hundreds Kaveh Ahangar have come and gone. But where is Derafsh e Kavian?

Ethics in Light of Childhood

Childhood faces humanity with its own deepest and most perplexing questions. An ethics that truly includes the world’s childhoods would transcend pre-modern traditional communities and modern rational autonomy with a postmodern aim of growing responsibility. It would understand human relations in a poetic rather than universalistic sense as openly and interdependently creative. As a consequence, it would produce new understandings of moral being, time, and otherness, as well as of religion, rights, narrative, families, obligation, and power. Ethics in Light of Childhood fundamentally reimagines ethical thought and practice in light of the experiences of the third of humanity who are children. Much like humanism, feminism, womanism, and environmentalism, Wall argues, a new childism is required that transforms moral thinking, relations, and societies in fundamental ways. Wall explores childhood’s varied impacts on ethical thinking throughout history, advances the emerging interdisciplinary field of childhood studies, and reexamines basic assumptions in contemporary moral theory and practice. In the process, he does not just apply ethics to childhood but applies childhood to ethics—in order to imagine a more expansive humanity.

Animal Models in Light of Evolution

The central concern of this book is with the "prediction problem" in biomedical research. In particular, the authors examine the use of animal models to predict human responses in drug and disease research. The arguments discussed are drawn from both biological and biomedical theory (with numerous examples and case studies drawn from evolutionary biology, complex systems theory, oncology, teratology, and AIDS research), and analyses of empirical evidence (concerning, for example, data on intra- and inter-species differences revealed by recent results from genome analyses of various species, human population studies, and statistical studies of the predictive utility of animal models). This book comes to the unique conclusion that while animals can be successfully used for many endeavors in science such as basic and comparative research, they cannot be used to predict drug and disease response in humans. The arguments presented are rooted in the history, philosophy, and methodology of biomedical research. This book will be of interest to anyone involved, directly or indirectly, in biomedical research (including physicians, veterinarians and scientists), and anyone interested in the history, philosophy and methodology of science. In contrast to books written by and for the animal rights movement and books written by and for the animal-based research industry, this book honestly examines all sides of the scientific arguments for using animals in science and concludes that each group in turn exaggerates the flaws or strengths of using animals. There are areas in science where animals can be viably used but there are also areas where they cannot be so used. REVIEWS See Philosophies, Ethics, and Humanities in Medicine 17 August 2010

In Light of Shadows is the long-awaited second volume of short fiction by the Meiji-TaishÅ writer Izumi KyÅ ka. It includes the famous novella Uta andon (A story by lantern light), the bizarre, anti-psychological story "Mayu kakushi no rei' (A quiet obsession), and KyÅ ka's hauntingly erotic final work, "RukÅ shyinsÅ " (The heart-vine), as well as critical discussions of each of these three tales. Translator Charles Inouye places KyÅ ka's "literature of shadows" (ka no bungaku) within a worldwide gothic tradition even as he refines its Japanese context. Underscoring KyÅ ka's relevance for a contemporary international audience, Inouye adjusts Tanizaki Jun'ichirÅ 's evaluation of KyÅ ka as the most Japanese of authors by demonstrating how the writer's paradigm of the suffering heroine can be linked to his exposure to Christianity, to a beautiful American woman, and to the aesthetic of blood sacrifice. In Light of Shadows masterfully conveys the magic allusiveness and elliptical style of this extraordinary writer, who Mishima Yukio called "the only genius of modern Japanese letters."

This book aims to help governments and public authorities to establish effective light rail-light metro transit (LRMT) systems, and focuses on use of Public Private Participation (PPP) arrangements. Rather than identify a single approach, we present options and discuss practical issues related to preparing and implementing new LRMT PPP schemes. The approach is focused on providing information that can be used to make informed decisions, adapted to local policy and objectives. The material presented is intended as a practical guide to developing LRMT PPPs in both developed and developing countries. This work endeavors to provide answers to readers questions regarding how to successfully incorporate private sector participation in LRMT with a lesser emphasis on why LRMT and the private sector may be beneficial. The primary focus of this text is guiding the reader from design through to project implementation. It starts from the premise that underlying transport policy decisions will have already been made and that LRMT has already been identified as the appropriate transport solution. We have included some limited discussion of policy and technical issues where these directly impact the LRMT PPP approach. The approach is presented in nine sections, and in preparing it the author drew on current international LRMT PPP experience, through a series of interviews and case studies. The sections covered are: 1. Urban Transport and Light Rail/Light Metro Transit (LRMT) 2. Selected Technical Aspects 3. Incorporating Private Sector Participation in LRMT Initiatives 4. Understanding and Allocating Risk 5. Specifications, Oversight and Performance Management 6. Funding and finance 7. Developing a PPP Agreement 8. Procurement 9. Conclusions and Recommendations

A shaman can serve as a healer, storyteller, and a keeper of wisdom—but most of all, teaches Sandra Ingerman, “Shamans radiate a light that uplifts everybody. In our culture, we tend to focus on methods and forget that the greatest way we can offer healing to the world is to become a vessel of love.” With Walking in Light, this renowned teacher offers a complete guide for living in a shamanic way—empowered by purpose, focus, and a deep connection to the spiritual dimensions. “Shamanism remains so relevant because it continues to evolve to meet the needs of the times and culture,” teaches Sandra. Here you are invited to participate in the modern evolution of this ancient and powerful form of spirituality, featuring: • Foundational practices—lucid instruction on the shamanic journey, ceremonies, and other techniques for accessing the hidden realms of spirit • Compassionate spirits, allies, and ancestors—how to contact and build a relationship with your power animals and spiritual helpers • Healing from a shamanic perspective—practices that can integrate with and enhance any healing modality • Guidance for deepening your connection with the environment and the rhythms of the natural world • Ways to cultivate a rich inner landscape that empowers your intentions and actions in every aspect of your life, and much more Walking in Light is a comprehensive resource filled with practical techniques, indigenous wisdom, and invaluable guidance for both new and experienced shamanic practitioners. Most importantly, Sandra Ingerman illuminates the meaning behind the practices—revealing our universe as a place where spirit is the ultimate reality, where our intentions shape our world, and where unseen allies support us on every step of our journey.
