Blurb on dust jacket:
The Kingdom of Maldives has had a long recorded history of statehood. This statehood embodied not only total sovereignty in its governance but also a well-defined set of traditions that formulated its polity.
A political system perhaps can best be understood not so much from a discussion of its theoretical composition but more from its de facto operations. Mohamed Nasheed in this book cuts into the very thick of the actions and events of the 1800's Maldivian political history which has allowed him to exemplify the boundaries and the conduct that polity and as further given his room to show the interactions that led up to the major events in the Dhivehi polity.

Why have all human cultures - today and throughout history - made music? Why does music excite such rich emotion? How do we make sense of musical sound?
These are questions that have, until recently, remained mysterious. Now The Music Instinct explores how the latest research in music psychology and brain science is piecing together the puzzle of how our minds understand and respond to music. Ranging from Bach fugues to nursery rhymes to heavy rock, Philip Ball interweaves philosophy, mathematics, history and neurology to reveal why music moves us in so many ways.
Without requiring any specialist knowledge, The Music Instinct will both deepen your appreciation of the music you love, and open doors to music that once seemed alien, dull or daunting, offering a passionate plea for the importance of music in education and in everyday life.
