7. تَعَهُّداتُ المُؤَلِّف

7.1 يُقِرّ ويَتَعَهَّد المُؤَلِّف بمُوجِب هذه الاتِّفاقِيَّة بالآتِي:

7.1.1 أَن الكِتاب هُو أَصلِيّ بِأَكمَلِهِ، وأَنه لم يَسبِق أَن تَمّ

نَشره، وأَنه لَيس بِتَناوُلِ العُمُوم.

7.1.2 أَن لا يَخرِق الكِتاب أَيّ قانُونٍ مِن قَوانِين حُقُوقِ

التَّألِيف، أَو أَيَ قانُونٍ تَشرِيعِيٍّ أَو أَيّ حَقِّ مِلكِيَّةٍ لِأَيّ طَرَفٍ


7.1.3 أَلَّا يَحوِي الكِتاب عَلَى أَيّ مادَّةٍ بَذِيئَةٍ أَو مُنافِيَةٍ

لِلأَخلاق، وَلا يَحتَوِي عَلَى أَيّ مادَّةٍ يَتَسَبَّبُ نَشرُها أَو بَيعُها

فِي خَرقِ أَيّ تَشرِيعٍ أَو لوائِح اتِّحادِيَّة أَو مَحَلِيَّة، وأَلَّا يَكون

الكِتاب غَير قانُونِيٍّ فِي أَيّ شَكلٍ مِن أَشكالِهِ.

7.1.4 الالتِزام بِتَسلِيمِ المُؤَسَّسَةِ الشَّكل المَبدَئِيّ والشَّكل

النِّهائِيّ لِلكِتاب وَفْقًا لَمَواعِيد التَّسلِيمِ والاتمامِ المُوَضَّحَة فِي

الجَدوَل (أ).

7.1.5 تَقدِيم تَقرِيرٍ دَورِيّ لِلمُؤَسَّسَة عَن ما قَد تَمّ إنجازه

فِي الكِتاب.

7.1.6 بِوَضعِ اسمِ وشِعارِ المُؤَسَّسَةِ عَلَى غِلافٍ لِلكِتابِ

الأَمامِيّ والخَلفِيّ وبِأَوَّل صَفحَةٍ مِنَ الأَمام بِداخِلِ الكِتاب

بطَرِيقَةٍ لا تُثِيرُ اللَّبْسَ أَو الغُمُوض، ويَتِم ذِكر نُبذَةً عَن

المُؤَسَّسَة وأَنّ المُؤَسَّسَة هِي الرَّاعِي الحَصرِيّ لِلكِتاب.

7.1.7 الالتِزام بِتَقدِيمِ ومَنحِ المُؤَسَّسَةِ كافَّةَ التَّصارِيح

والمُوافَقات الكِتابِيَّة اللَّازِمَة لاتمامِ عَمَلِيَّةِ طَبعِ ونَشرِ

وتَسويِقِ وبَيعِ الكِتابِ فِي دَولَةِ الإماراتِ العَرَبِيَّةِ المُتَّحِدَةِ

وفِي الخارِجِ إذا لَزِمَ الأمر.

7.2 يَتَعَهَّد المُؤَلِّف بِمُوجِبِه أَن أَيّ خَرقٍ لهَذه التَّعَهُّدات أَو

أَيّ خَرقٍ لِبُنُودِ هذه الاتِّفاقِيَّةِ أَو أَيّ خَرقٍ لِمَواعِيد الاتمامِ

والتَّسلِيمِ قَد يَتَسَبَّبُ فِي خَسارَةٍ لا تُعَوَّض وضَرَرٍ لِلمُؤَسَّسَةِ،

وبِناءً عَلَى ذلك يَقُومُ المُؤَلِّفُ بِرَدِّ جَميع المَبالِغ المَدفُوعَة لَهُ

مِنَ المُؤَسَّسَةِ مَعَ الالتِزامِ بِتَعوِيضِ المُؤَسَّسَةِ عَن أَيّ ضَرَرٍ

أَو خَسارَةٍ أَو أَذَىً مَهما كانَت طَبِيعَته والنَّاتِج عَن أَيّ خَرقٍ

لِأَحكامِ هذه الاتِّفاقِيَّة عَن طَرِيقِ المُؤَلِّف.

from any third party.

7.1.3 “The Book” does not contain any obscene or objectionable material and nor does it

My involvement in the Arab world began when I started reading Arabic at St Andrews University in 1978. Led by the mercurial and magnificent Dr John Burton, the Arabic department comprised other great figures, including the late Dr David Jackson, Douglas Galloway and Richard Kimber, and complemented by the outstanding, now Professor Hugh Kennedy.

On leaving St Andrews, I completed a year’s further study at Damascus University. Since then, my various career appointments have all been focussed on the Arab world, first in the public sector and later in banking. At Crown Agents, I oversaw the implementation of donor aid programmes in countries including Sudan, Egypt and Palestine. At United Bank of Kuwait, I managed a fund which was invested in the stock markets across the Arab world. For the most part, the annual reports and accounts were in Arabic, and they were my daily diet. More recently, working under the supervision of Dr Salma Khadra Jayyusi, I have translated and ‘style’ edited a number of literary books. I have also done translation of a complex technical and legal nature for the ITU and others.

Crucially, I combine an ability to write clear, simple English with a wide-ranging academic, professional and personal experience of the Arabic language. I will not merely render your Arabic texts in English words, but I will translate them in a way which is accurate and lucid.
