This book considers governance and policy-making within the maritime sector, and focuses significantly on the dimensional context within which governance works. Recognising the importance of understanding governance and policy at times when the world is faced with social, political, and economic problems, it highlights the fact that both areas are equally significant in understanding today’s political economy. By focusing on the maritime sector, a pillar industry supporting international trade activities, the book offers a unique perspective to explain the difficulties of balancing policy-making with governance in order to provide solutions. It also examines the importance of developing a governance process that encourages and accommodates juxtaposition in a way that ensures that the effect of independent policy-making is understood upon the success or otherwise of policies across a range of contexts and problems. Given the in-depth nature of the text, it is of interest to academics, researchers and professionals in the field.

This monograph examines the juxtaposition of narrative units in biblical narrative and the effect this has on interpretation. Early rabbinical and inner-biblical interpretations suggest that juxtaposition was an intentional device used by biblical editors and authors to shape the meaning of their material.Therefore, this monograph develops a framework for recognising the ways in which adjacentunits interpret and re-interpret one another and presents this framework as an important hermeneutical tool. Stories and episodes that are linked chronologically affect one another through a relationship of causes and consequences.The categories of contradiction, corroboration and question and answer are also used to describe the types of interaction between narrative units and demonstrate how suchdialogues create new meaning.Indicators in the text that guide the audience towards the intended interpretation are identified in order that a 'poetics' of juxtaposition is developed. The theoretical basis established in the first half of the monograph is then applied to the Elisha cycle. Each episode is interpreted independently and then read in juxtaposition with the surrounding episodes, producing a fresh literary reading of the cycle.Furthermore, inorder to demonstrate how juxtaposition functioned as a diachronic process, attention is given to the literary history of the cycle.We conjecture earlier interpretations of the Elisha episodes and compare them to the final form of the cycle.Finally, the Elisha cycle is itself a story juxtaposed with other stories and so the same principles of interpretation are used to suggest the meaning of the cycle within the book of Kings.

In the novel Its Juxtaposition, a disillusioned and rebellious young man attempts to solve the questions of his existence and puts his nihilistic theories to the test the results of which come back to haunt him. Even though Jason Semonds graduated from college four years ago, he is working as a waiter. Still in a quandary as to what he's going to do with his life, Jason leads a tormented existence as he tries to understand whether his feelings of compassion, hope, and anger are normal or obstacles to overcome, and whether his desires toward sex, alcohol, and power are weaknesses or ways to mold his character. As an internal battle plays out, Jason begins to act dangerously around women. When he meets and goes home with Debra, a woman fixated on teaching him that God is good, the evening takes an evil turn and the direction of Jason's life changes forever. As he continues to search for his core being, Jason meets Sophia, a young woman determined to end her life. As Sophia and Jason build a relationship on lost dreams, he soon realizes that what happens in his life is beyond his control.
