Description : I am a Trinidad-born American citizen settled down with my husband and two children in New Jersey. I was educated in London with a Business Administrative Degree and my occupation was that of a print and fashion model. After the abolition of slavery by the British, a vast number of Immigrants were taken from the Indian sub-continent where they became indentured laborers in the Caribbean. Desperate people were thrown together under tight conditions with rigid plantation discipline under the British Empire. This is a breathtaking, fascinating narrative biography of my ancestors who went to work in the cane fields under the excruciating commands of the British Empire where after five years they were freed and became successful businessmen. This work is painstaking in documenting this true story. It is alive, definitely dramatic, clear and exceptionally moving. My research into this story has never been told before and now must be unfolded because of its powerful and unique history of past times that were unknown to people all over the globe. The story traces my family's history from the streets of Calcutta to the sugar cane plantations of Trinidad owned by the British and these East Indian indentured laborers living in slave-like conditions, then starting several successful businesses and growing from poverty. I trust that you will see this book as not just my own family's journey but in a large measure indicative of the struggles, successes, and failures of the many thousands of Indians who came to the New World as indentured laborers and worked so hard to become successful. Our story is largely unknown in America It is alive and I have tried to make the story inspirational and full of human kindness.

Description : Amnesty laws are political tools used since ancient times by states wishing to quell dissent, introduce reforms, or achieve peaceful relationships with their enemies. In recent years, they have become contentious due to a perception that they violate international law, particularly the rights of victims, and contribute to further violence. This view is disputed by political negotiators who often argue that amnesty is a necessary price to pay in order to achieve a stable, peaceful, and equitable system of government. This book aims to investigate whether an amnesty necessarily entails a violation of a state's international obligations, or whether an amnesty, accompanied by alternative justice mechanisms, can in fact contribute positively to both peace and justice. This study began by constructing an extensive Amnesty Law Database that contains information on 506 amnesty processes in 130 countries introduced since the Second World War. The database and chapter structure were designed to correspond with the key aspects of an amnesty: why it was introduced, who benefited from its protection, which crimes it covered, and whether it was conditional. In assessing conditional amnesties, related transitional justice processes such as selective prosecutions, truth commissions, community-based justice mechanisms, lustration, and reparations programmes were considered. Subsequently, the jurisprudence relating to amnesty from national courts, international tribunals, and courts in third states was addressed. The information gathered revealed considerable disparity in state practice relating to amnesties, with some aiming to provide victims with a remedy, and others seeking to create complete impunity for perpetrators. To date, few legal trends relating to amnesty laws are emerging, although it appears that amnesties offering blanket, unconditional immunity for state agents have declined. Overall, amnesties have increased in popularity since the 1990s and consequently, rather than trying to dissuade states from using this tool of transitional justice, this book argues that international actors should instead work to limit the more negative forms of amnesty by encouraging states to make them conditional and to introduce complementary programmes to repair the harm and prevent a repetition of the crimes. David Dyzenhaus "This is one of the best accounts in the truth and reconciliation literature I've read and certainly the best piece of work on amnesty I've seen." Diane Orentlicher "Ms Mallinder's ambitious project provides the kind of empirical treatment that those of us who have worked on the issue of amnesties in international law have long awaited. I have no doubt that her book will be a much-valued and widely-cited resource."

Description : Feeling at home is something we rarely think of until forced to leave a location for a new place. It came as a shock to face moving from the place where I thought I would live for the rest of my life. With the shock came the realization that I was part of that late twentieth century American social phenomenon, a mobile society following their jobs from one place to another. Being uprooted has become a common occurrence in these times.
