Playing With The Pieces: Postmodernism In The Lawyer's Toolbox, Stephen M. Feldman Dec 1998

Playing With The Pieces: Postmodernism In The Lawyer's Toolbox, Stephen M. Feldman

Stephen M. Feldman

The distinction between modernism and postmodernism in legal scholarship is highly complex. This Essay does not explore this problem in depth but builds on the recognition that most modernist scholars expressly articulate and defend normative values and goals, while postmodern scholars rarely do so. Postmodernists are themselves enmeshed within the structures of scholarly and lawyerly discourse. As such, they must construct narratives and arguments that use the available rhetorical tools of discourse--namely, they must use modernist and postmodernist concepts to present their views. But whereas modernist scholars use similar tools with earnestness, postmodernist scholars use these tools with irony. Postmodernists ...

New Migration And Racism In Cyprus: The Racialisation Of Migrant Workers, Nicos Trimikliniotis Dec 1998

New Migration And Racism In Cyprus: The Racialisation Of Migrant Workers, Nicos Trimikliniotis

Nicos Trimikliniotis

This paper sets out to examine the processes of racialisation of temporary migrant or 'foreign' labour in Cyprus, a country traditionally exporting migrants but recently transformed into one of hosting migrants. It considers policies and rights relating to migrant workers and examines discourses around migration found in the Greek Cypriot press and magazines. It also examines the role of employers and trade unions in the racialisation of migrant workers. It considers how conceptualisations of ‘race’ and racism, and their interrelation with class, are useful in understanding and explaining the processes by which the people are excluded, inferiorised and exploited.

Traced guns are not representative of the broader universe of crime guns. Accordingly, drawing public policy conclusions based on tracing data is unwise.
