Pr servation et mise en valeur des monuments historiques priv s la fiscalit de l imp t sur le revenu
Le régime fiscal de l'impôt sur le revenu applicable aux monuments historiques a vocation à compenser le coût et les astreintes liés à leur préservation, et encourage l'ouverture au public. A l'heure où se pose la question de son maintien, son intérêt patrimonial est ici rappelé. Ses difficultés et paradoxes sont mis en exergue, et des pistes sont proposées pour qu'il garantisse la pérennité des monuments historiques détenus, pour près de la moitié d'entre eux, par des acteurs privés.
Earthen architecture constitutes one of the most diverse forms of cultural heritage and one of the most challenging to preserve. It dates from all periods and is found on all continents but is particularly prevalent in Africa, where it has been a building tradition for centuries. Sites range from ancestral cities in Mali to the palaces of Abomey in Benin, from monuments and mosques in Iran and Buddhist temples on the Silk Road to Spanish missions in California. This volume's sixty-four papers address such themes as earthen architecture in Mali, the conservation of living sites, local knowledge systems and intangible aspects, seismic and other natural forces, the conservation and management of archaeological sites, research advances, and training.

Islam and Mammon
The doctrine of "Islamic economics" entered debates over the social role of Islam in the mid-twentieth century. Since then it has pursued the goal of restructuring economies according to perceived Islamic teachings. Beyond its most visible practical achievement--the establishment of Islamic banks meant to avoid interest--it has promoted Islamic norms of economic behavior and founded redistribution systems modeled after early Islamic fiscal practices. In this bold and timely critique, Timur Kuran argues that the doctrine of Islamic economics is simplistic, incoherent, and largely irrelevant to present economic challenges. Observing that few Muslims take it seriously, he also finds that its practical applications have had no discernible effects on efficiency, growth, or poverty reduction. Why, then, has Islamic economics enjoyed any appeal at all? Kuran's answer is that the real purpose of Islamic economics has not been economic improvement but cultivation of a distinct Islamic identity to resist cultural globalization. The Islamic subeconomies that have sprung up across the Islamic world are commonly viewed as manifestations of Islamic economics. In reality, Kuran demonstrates, they emerged to meet the economic aspirations of socially marginalized groups. The Islamic enterprises that form these subeconomies provide advancement opportunities to the disadvantaged. By enhancing interpersonal trust, they also facilitate intragroup transactions. These findings raise the question of whether there exist links between Islam and economic performance. Exploring these links in relation to the long-unsettled question of why the Islamic world became underdeveloped, Kuran identifies several pertinent social mechanisms, some beneficial to economic development, others harmful.
This study of Cambodian nationalism brings to life eight turbulent decades of cultural change and sheds new light on the colonial ancestry of Pol Pot's murderous dystopia. Penny Edwards re-creates the intellectual milieux and cultural traffic linking Europe and empire, interweaving analysis of key movements and ideas in the French Protectorate of Cambodge with contemporary developments in the Metropole. With its fresh take on the dynamics of colonialism and nationalism, Cambodge: The Cultivation of a Nation, 1860-1945 will become essential reading for scholars of history, politics, and society in Southeast Asia. Edwards' analysis of Buddhism and her consideration of Angkor's emergence as a national monument will be of particular interest to students of Asian and European religion, museology, heritage studies, and art history. It will also appeal to specialists in modern French history, cultural studies, and colonialism, as well as readers with a general interest in Cambodia.

The Global Expansion of Judicial Power
Not only a highly significant contribution to the debate about masculinity, this outstanding volume breaks new ground in psychological theorizing generally. Tatham's passionate and disciplined text will set the agenda for the 1990's. -Andrew Samuels, author of The Father Tatham combines innovative psychological insight with the imaginative language of a poet. -Dr. Mario Jacoby, Ph. D., C. J. Jung Institute, Zurich In the Makings of Maleness, Jungian analyst Peter Tatham argues that the time for the hero as a model for maleness is past, and suggests that many of the difficulties between men and women, as well as the patriarchal slant of our culture, result from an over reliance upon the heroic as an archetypal stance that underlies consciousness. What maleness needs today is not merely to be more aware of its female counterpart, but to develop a different understanding of its own male nature. As a model more in keeping with the epoch and its needs, Tatham puts forward this archetypal image in the person and story of Daedalus, the master-craftsman of Greek mythology. Peter Tatham, by overturning various stereotypical positions, frees the reader to examine the notion that there can exist many different kinds of maleness.
