Description : This book examines the traffic in women for marriage, a phenomenon that has been largely overlooked in international efforts to address the problem of human trafficking. In contrast to current international and state-based approaches to trafficking, which tend to focus on sex trafficking and trafficking for forced labour, this book seeks to establish how marriage as an institution is often implicated in the occurrence of trafficking in women. The book aims firstly to establish why marriage has tended not to be included in dominant conceptions of trafficking in persons and secondly to determine whether certain types of marriage may constitute cases of human trafficking, in and of themselves. Through the use of case studies on forced marriage, mail-order bride (MOB) marriage and Fundamentalist Mormon polygamy, this book demonstrates that certain kinds of marriage may in fact constitute situations of trafficking in persons and together form the under-recognised phenomenon of ‘marriage trafficking’. In addition, the book offers a new perspective on the types of harm involved in trafficking in women by developing a framework for identifying the particular abuses characteristic to marriage trafficking. It argues that the traffic in women for marriage cannot be understood merely as a subset of sex trafficking or trafficking for forced labour, but rather constitutes a distinctive form of trafficking in its own right. This book will be of great interest to scholars and postgraduates working in the fields of human rights theory and institutions, political science, international law, transnational crime, trafficking in persons, and feminist political theory.

Description : What is rock? This book offers a new and systematic approach to understanding rock by applying sociological concepts in a historical context. Deena Weinstein, a rock critic, journalist, and academic, starts by outlining an original approach to understanding rock, explaining how the form has developed through a complex and ever-changing set of relations between artists, fans, and mediators. She then traces the history of rock in America through its distinctive eras, from rock's precursors to rock in the digital age. The book includes suggested listening lists to accompany each chapter, a detailed filmography of movies about rock, and a wide range of visuals and fascinating anecdotes. Never separating rock music from the social, political, economic, and cultural changes in America's history, Rock'n America provides a comprehensive overview of the genre and a new way of appreciating its place in American society.
Description : It is easy to communicate. Right? Well, wrong! Any communication that does not generate the desired response can hardly be considered effective.

In Communication in Relationships, Bimbo Odukoya, an internationally acclaimed marriage counsellor, addresses the intricacies of relationships, focussing on verbal communication, non-verbal communication, listening and communication styles, as she proffers solutions to numerous marital and relationship problems. If your relationships are not working, the reason may well be that you are not communicating effectively. This book is a must-read. Pastor Bimbo Odukoya was the co-pastor of The Fountain of Life Church, Lagos-a church that is committed to raising leaders, and was the president of Single & Married, a ministry that has been widely acclaimed for preparing youths and couples for fulfilling and lasting relationships. Her popular television programme Single & Married is still being broadcast on several stations across Africa, Canada and the United Kingdom, long after her passing on to glory in December 2005.
