This series also sees Charlie as the new manager and the arrival of Emily - the gorgeous, upper class English rose and new public relations expert for the hotel. But will Charlie and the team welcome her arrival? Especially when she's already had the opportunity to study their work methods in secret. And when the hotel gets poor reviews, could it spell disaster for the future - for both hotel and staff? But when Emily manages to secure the society event of the year - the wedding of a multimillionaire's daughter - could it get any better.
Where rivalry, lust and ambition stalk the corridors and luxury suites. Welcome back to "Hotel Babylon", to the luxurious interiors, silver service, celebrity guests and, of course, to the intriguing stories and downright outrageous antics from the house staff. Once again, the stories are as exciting and spicy as the guests, and the staff aren't shy of creating waves either, as Anna gets in hot water at a masked ball; Charlie risks landing himself back in the slammer; Tony gets his feathers severely ruffled by Russian gangsters and Rebecca's divorce party gets completely out of hand. Inspired by Imogen Edwards-Jones' revelatory, behind-the-scenes book, the original cast is back again with new guest stars including Jerry Hall and David Williams ("Little Britain").
Since the early 1930s, researchers have shed light on the literary production of the Ismailis. The cataloguing of these works has been carried out by Ivanow, Fyzee, Goriawala, Poonawala, Gacek, Cortese and de Blois. Many works attributed to Ismaili scholars, however, are still unavailable, either because they remain hidden in private collections, or because they have not survived. As regards Ismaili law, in particular, it is still a largely unexplored field of study. Al-Qadi Abu Hanifa al-Nu'man is generally considered as the founder and the greatest exponent of Ismaili jurisprudence. Many of his works have been lost; scattered information on some others is found here and there; some works are still in manuscript form; few others have been published. This book is a critical edition and translation of al-Nu'man's Minhaj al-fara'id, based on the three known copies of it. It deals with the law of inheritance, one of the most difficult Islamic law institutions throughout Islamic law.
