This salient text presents a culturally aware public health approach to the HIV epidemic in Malaysia, a country emblematic of the Muslim worlds response to the crisis. It explores complex interactions of religion with health as a source of coping as well as stigma and denial, particularly as Islam plays a central role in Malaysian culture, politics, and policy. At the heart of the book, a groundbreaking study analyzes attitudes and behaviors toward prevention among diverse people living with HIV, faith leaders, and government health officials. From these findings, readers gain insight into how health professionals, policymakers, and organizations can create appropriate prevention programs in Malaysia, with implications for other Muslim countries. This timely volume: Situates Malaysia and the Asian Pacific region in the context of the HIV epidemic. Analyzes ways Islamic beliefs can shape perceptions of HIV and prevention policy. Reviews a unique study of stakeholder opinions and practices regarding HIV. Discusses the consequences of Islamic rulings on sex outside marriage. Offers recommendations for effective HIV prevention practice and policy. Islam and Health Policies Related to HIV Prevention in Malaysia is of immediate relevance to researchers studying HIV prevention, social aspects of religion, sexuality, and sex education. Policymakers in health promotion and health education as well as graduate students in sex education, sociology, psychology, and cultural studies should also find it useful. ?Sima Barmania, B Med Sci, MBBS, MPH, PhD , is a British medical doctor in global health, based between London, United Kingdom and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

This collection of essays examines how Southeast Asian women writers engage with the grand narratives of nationalism and the modern nation-state by exploring the representations of gender, identity and nation in the postcolonial literatures of Brunei Darussalam, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, and the Philippines. Bringing to light the selected works of overlooked local women writers and providing new analyses of those produced by internationally-known women authors and artists, the essays situate regional literary developments within historicized geopolitical landscapes to offer incisive analyses and readings on how women and the feminine are imagined, represented, and positioned in relation to the Southeast Asian nation.The book, which features both cross-country comparative analyses and country-specific investigations, also considers the ideas of the nation and the state by investigating related ideologies, rhetoric, apparatuses, and discourses, and the ways in which they affect womens bodies, subjectivities, and lived realities in both historical and contemporary Southeast Asian contexts. By considering how these literary expressions critique, contest, or are complicit in nationalist projects and state-mandated agendas, the collection contributes to the overall regional and comparative discourses on gender, identity and nation in Southeast Asian studies. Dr Grace V. S. Chin is a senior lecturer in the English Language and Literature Studies programme at Universiti Sains Malaysia in Penang. Previously, she taught English Literature at Universiti Brunei Darussalam and The University of Hong Kong. In 2016, she was awarded senior fellowship by the Royal Netherlands Institute of Southeast Asian & Caribbean Studies (KITLV) in Leiden, The Netherlands. Her areas of interest include the literatures of postcolonial Southeast Asia and Asian womens writings, with focus on race and gender in contemporary societies and diasporas. Her articles have appeared in refereed journals such as The Journal of Commonwealth Literature, World Englishes, Intersections: Gender and Sexuality in Asia and the Pacific, and The Journal of International Womens Studies, as well as in books published by Springer, John Benjamins and Cambridge Scholars Publishing. Dr Kathrina Mohd Daud is currently a lecturer in the English Studies programme at the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at Universiti Brunei Darussalam, with a joint appointment in the Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien Centre for Islamic Studies and the Institute of Asian Studies.

This study is concerned with the literary genre to which the book of Qoheleth belongs and on which it is modelled. It covers various aspects of literary analysis and the problem of making sense of the book as a whole. It suggests that Qoheleth is best described as a royal autobiography based on the arguments of specific literary features of style and content, resemblance to various kinds of royal autobiographical narrative from elsewhere in the ancient Near East, and the existence of a coherent worldview which the author presents as the fruit of his lifelong observations of the world.

This book tells one of the greatest stories in the history of school mathematics. Two of the names in the title-Samuel Pepys and Isaac Newton-need no introduction, and this book draws attention to their special contributions to the history of school mathematics. According to Ellerton and Clements, during the last quarter of the seventeenth century Pepys and Newton were key players in defining what school mathematics beyond arithmetic and elementary geometry might look like. The scene at which most of the action occurred was Christs Hospital, which was a school, ostensibly for the poor, in central London. The Royal Mathematical School (RMS) was established at Christs Hospital in 1673. It was the less well-known James Hodgson, a fine mathematician and RMS master between 1709 and 1755, who demonstrated that topics such as logarithms, plane and spherical trigonometry, and the application of these to navigation, might systematically and successfully be taught to 12- to 16-year-old school children. From a wider history-of-school-education perspective, this book tells how the worlds first secondary-school mathematics program was created and how, slowly but surely, what was being achieved at RMS began to influence school mathematics in other parts of Great Britain, Europe, and America. The book has been written from the perspective of the history of school mathematics. Ellerton and Clementss analyses of pertinent literature and of archival data, and their interpretations of those analyses, have led them to conclude that RMS was the first major school in the world to teach mathematics-beyond-arithmetic, on a systematic basis, to students aged between 12 and 16. Throughout the book, Ellerton and Clements examine issues through the lens of a lag-time theoretical perspective. From a historiographical perspective, this book emphasizes how the history of RMS can be portrayed in very different ways, depending on the vantage point from which the history is written. The authors write from the vantage point of international developments in school mathematics education and, therefore, their history of RMS differs from all other histories of RMS, most of which were written from the perspective of the history of Christs Hospital.

Between 1993 and 1997 she was editor of the Mathematics Education Research Journal, and between 2011 and 2015 she was Associate Educator of the Journal for Research in Mathematics Education. In recent years Nerida has concentrated her research efforts in two areas-the history of school mathematics and problem posing in mathematics education. In 2012, 2014, and 2015, respectively, Springer published the 223-page Rewriting the History of School Mathematics in North America 1607-1861, the 367-page Abraham Lincolns Cyphering Book and Ten other Extraordinary Cyphering Books, and the 204-page Thomas Jefferson and his Decimals: Neglected Years in the History of U.S. School Mathematics. She jointly authored each of those books with M. A. (Ken) Clements. In 2015 Springer published a 567-page edited collection on problem posing which was jointly edited by Florence Mihaela Singer, Nerida, and Jinfa Cai. In 2015 Nerida received the outstanding researcher award of the College of Arts and Science at Illinois State University. M. A. (Ken) Clements masters and doctoral degrees were from the University of Melbourne, and at various times in his career he has taught, full-time, in primary and secondary schools, for a total of 15 years. He has taught in six universities, located in three nations, and since 2005 has been Associate Professor (2005-2006) and then Professor (2007-present) within the Mathematics Department at Illinois State University.
