There is no recognized corpus of binding law globally applicable to all Churches in the Anglican Communion. Ostensibly, each Church is autonomous, free to make rules to facilitate and to order its internal life. This book, which is global in scope and will be of interest throughout the world, makes available for the first time a comparative study of the Constitutions, Canons, and other forms of law of Churches in the worldwide Anglican Communion. Does analysis draws out the similarities and differences between them and, from the coincidence of actual laws and from global ecclesiastical conventions enunciated by the Lambeth Conference, he elucidates the global principles of Anglican canon law that may apply to all Churches in the Communion. The subjects examined include: government; ministry; doctrine and liturgy; rites; property; inter-church relations; and ecumenism. Does thorough and practical analysis of a hitherto under-explored subject is placed squarely within its jurisprudential and theological context, and will be welcomed by both practitioners and scholars. For those within the Anglican Communion, his book offers a wealth of information enabling individual Churches to see how fellow Churches are organized. For those without, the book provides a valuable insight into Anglican government and law.

Attacks in Aikido
Author: Stefan Stenudd
For the first time: an aikido book that focuses on the attack techniques! Although aikido is a purely defensive martial art, attack techniques need to be practiced in order for the training partners to exercise the defense against them. And for the aikido skills to increase, the attacking skills must improve accordingly. This book presents all the attacks practiced in aikido - grips as well as strikes, punches, and kicks. Also attacks with a sword, a stick, and a knife are included. Each of these attack techniques is examined in depth, with lots of advice and pointers for beginners as well as advanced aikido students. The book contains commented lists of all the combinations of attack and defense techniques, and a dictionary of aikido terminology. Stefan Stenudd is a 7 dan Aikikai Shihan aikido instructor, former Vice Chairman of the International Aikido Federation, member of the Swedish aikido grading committee, and President of the Swedish Budo & Martial Arts Federation. He has practiced aikido since 1972. He also teaches the sword art iaido. He has previously written the aikido books Aikido Principles and Aikibatto: Sword Exercises for Aikido Students.
Apple Aperture 3
Author: Ken McMahon, Nik Rawlinson
Publisher: Taylor & Francis
Aperture is a dedicated end-to-end workflow tool for photographers and this book guides the reader through the complete process from capture to output. The beauty of Aperture is that - unlike Adobe's rival workflow software, Lightroom - it doesn't force a particular structure or workflow on to the user. This more open-ended approach means it is becoming increasingly popular with photographers - but also means that there is a lot to learn for a newcomer to the software. Whether you are cataloging, organising and adding Metadata to thousands of RAW files; selecting, cropping and correcting an individual image or preparing files for final output to web or print, this book provides a complete reference for producing high-quality results with Aperture.
