Ex-Library. Original binding. xl, 298 p. Wear to the top and bottom of the spine and to the corners. Text is unmarked by underlining or notations. Translation of Harmonies économiques. States Part 1 on the spine. From Wikipedia:"Claude Frédéric Bastiat (1801- 1850) was a French classical liberal theorist, political economist, and member of the French assembly. Bastiat asserted that the sole purpose of government is to defend and protect the right of an individual to life, liberty and property. From this definition, Bastiat concluded that the law cannot defend life, liberty and property if it promotes socialist policies, which are inherently opposed to these very things. In this way, he says, the law is perverted and turned against the thing it is supposed to defend."

77 Beysanoglu, Sevket Inançlari, gelenek ve görenekleri ile Yezîdîler
Ankara Neyir Matbaas 1988 First Edition Soft Cover Very Good 24 cm tall

Text is unmarked by underlining or notations. The Yazidis (also Yezidi, Êzidî) are a Kurdish religious community whose syncretic but ancient religion Yazidism is linked to Zoroastrianism and ancient Mesopotamian religions. They live primarily in the Nineveh Province of Iraq. The Yazidis are monotheists, believing in God as creator of the world, which he has placed under the care of seven holy beings or angels, the chief of whom is Melek Taus, the Peacock Angel. Some followers of other monotheistic religions of the region equate the Peacock Angel with their own unredeemed evil spirit Satan, which has incited centuries of persecution of the Yazidis as "devil worshippers." Persecution of Yazidis has continued in their home communities within the borders of modern Iraq, under fundamentalist Sunni Muslim revolutionaries. In August 2014 the Yazidis were targeted by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant in its campaign to "purify" Iraq and neighboring countries of non-Islamic influences.[Wikipedia]
