Two new books by Uchenna Jerome Orji

Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of two new books by Dr Uchenna Jerome Orji, International Telecommunications Law and Policy and Telecommunications Law and Regulation in Nigeria.

International Telecommunications Law and Policy discusses telecommunication regimes established by international and regional organizations such as the United Nations, the International Telecommunication Union, the World Trade Organization, the African Union, the Economic Community of West African States, and the Southern African Development Community, among a number of others. Since the revolution in modern telecommunications that followed the invention of the telegraph, telecommunication networks have provided channels for the fast delivery of communications across national borders. This transnational nature of telecommunication networks have led to the establishment of international regulatory regimes on the subject. The book analyses these developments, and will be relevant to policy makers, regulators, lawyers, law students, investors and telecommunication operators, as well as any person interested in international and African regional telecommunication regimes.

Telecommunications Law and Regulation in Nigeria provides an analysis of the legal and policy instruments that regulate the industry. It comprises eleven chapters that discuss the historical evolution of telecommunications and its regulation; the development of the Nigerian telecommunications industry from 1886 to 2017; the legal basis for the regulation of the industry; the licensing and duties of service providers; the regulation of network infrastructure; the protection of consumers; the regulation of competition, interconnection, universal access, and environmental protection; and the resolution of industry disputes. This book will be useful to policy makers, legislators, regulators, lawyers, law students, investors, operators, and consumers, as well as any person interested in the Nigerian telecommunications industry.

Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of The Philosophical Roots of the Ecological Crisis: Descartes and the Modern Worldview by Joshtrom Isaac Kureethadam.

The Philosophical Roots of the Ecological Crisis: Descartes and the Modern Worldview traces the conceptual sources of the present environmental degradation within the worldview of Modernity, and particularly within the thought of René Descartes, universally acclaimed as the father of modern philosophy. The book demonstrates how the triple foundations of the Modern worldview – in terms of an exaggerated anthropocentrism, a mechanistic conception of the natural world, and the metaphysical dualism between humanity and the rest of the physical world – can all be largely traced back to Cartesian thought, with direct ecological consequences.

It is currently an exciting time for organizations with regard to the recruitment of talent. The business and organizational pressures for finding and hiring the best people could not be greater. Recruitment has not changed as a process – a vacancy still needs a suitable hire. However, the landscape, tools, technologies, behaviors and expectations regarding how an organization approaches sourcing and acquiring talent are changing rapidly. This book chronicles one organization’s journey as it goes about re-orienting the focus of its talent acquisition capability from the current reactive process to a strategic and proactive program capable of consistently sourcing and recruiting the very best people available. Forward-looking companies are seizing this opportunity to create a true competitive advantage in talent sourcing and acquisition. They are focusing on fine-tuning the fundamentals, while devoting increased time and planning to the more strategic areas of talent acquisition, including workforce planning and strategic sourcing. Their best-in-class approaches elevate recruitment from a transactional, short-term focused activity to a strategic, integrated, long-term approach that optimizes their investments in people.
