This book examines good faith in non-marine insurance and takaful (Islamic insurance) contracts in Malaysia, and proposes holistic law reform of the same. The first two-thirds of the book comprise an extensive comparative legal analysis of the issues between Malaysia, Australia and the United Kingdom, with the final third dedicated to a socio-economic analysis of law reform and suggestions for law reform particularly suited to Malaysia. The book evaluates whether the duty of utmost good faith (the cornerstone of insurance and takaful contracts) is effectively regulated and, in turn, observed by insurers (and takaful operators) and insureds alike in Malaysia. The adequacy of the Insurance Act 1996 (Malaysia), the Takaful Act 1984 (Malaysia), the Financial Services Act 2013 (Malaysia) and the Islamic Financial Services Act 2013 (Malaysia) is evaluated, along with the supporting infrastructure and oversight measures introduced by the Malaysian government. In doing so, The book examines the duty of utmost good faith from both a doctrinal and a social science perspective, in order to propose suitable legal reform. Haemala Thanasegaran is Senior Lecturer with the Department of Business Law and Taxation at Monash University, Australia. She has taught primarily international trade law, business law, Malaysian income tax law, and Malaysian company law, amongst other subjects. Her research interests are in insurance and takaful (Islamic insurance), and legal culture and contracts (with an emphasis on comparative law).

Living in Malaysia and having businesses in more than 26 countries; covering hard-to-penetrate markets such as the Middle East and the African continent, Sam Low, Founder and Chairman of EDMARK Group of Companies, realized that if he wanted a breakthrough, he must be ready for a break-in. Instead of mulling over management books or following the teachings of contemporary business gurus, for the first time in his life, Sam dug deep into his own emotions, went into the crevasse of his heart and began to listen intently. Having profound clarity, Sam introduced four Universal Principles that re-shaped the companys future - and his own. With a new management style, Edmark International experienced an unprecedented exponential growth never before achieved. No matter what kind of business you are doing, or where you are operating from, these guiding virtues, when applied sincerely, will empower you to live a life of great wealth, good health and harmonious relationships. 4 Pillars of Success: - The Pillar of Gratefulness (GRATITUDE) - The Pillar of Big-Heartedness (ABUNDANCE) - The Pillar of All-Inclusiveness (LOVE) - The Pillar of Humaneness (COMPASSION)
Analysis and Synthesis of Polynomial Discrete-time Systems: An SOS Approach addresses the analysis and design of polynomial discrete-time control systems. The book deals with the application of Sum of Squares techniques in solving specific control and filtering problems that can be useful to solve advanced control problems, both on the theoretical side and on the practical side. Two types of controllers, state feedback controller and output feedback controller, along with topics surrounding the nonlinear filter and the H-infinity performance criteria are explored. The book also proposes a solution to global stabilization of discrete-time systems. Presents recent developments of the Sum of Squares approach in control of Polynomial Discrete-time Systems Includes numerical and practical examples to illustrate how design methodologies can be applied Provides a methodology for robust output controller design with an H-infinity performance index for polynomial discrete-time systems Offers tools for the analysis and design of control processes where the process can be represented in polynomial form Uses the Sum of Squares method for solving controller and filter design problems Provides MATLAB® code and simulation files of all illustrated example Mohd Shakir Md Saat is an Associate Professor and Deputy Dean (Academic) with the Faculty of Electronic and Computer Engineering at the Teknikal Malaysia Melaka, Malaysia.

In a time when racism is on the rise as a source of conflict and social justice has been increasingly demanded by the civic society, this collection stands as a timely reminder that to ignore the racial factor in the globalization forces is as mistaken as eliminating class analysis. The essays published here supplement the literature of comparative race relations from the standpoint of the theory of institutional racism and its effect on public policies such as immigration, citizenship, security and policing.
