Pursuing Alternative Development

Edited by Hiroshi Kato, Japan International Cooperation Agency Research Institute (JICA-RI), Japan, John Page, Brookings Institution, USA, Yasutami Shimomura, Hosei University, Japan

Indigenous People, Ethnic Organization and Agency M. Saiful Islam, University of Dhaka, Bangladesh "This book will definitely enliven the debate about alternative ways of 'development'. The case study presented shows convincingly that underprivileged groups can develop themselves rather than being developed by others. Overall this is a useful text for academics, students and practitioners." - HansDieter Evers, Emeritus Professor of Development Studies, University of Bonn, Germany

Drawing upon ethnographic descriptions of three grassroots ethnic organizations, which work for indigenous peoples in promoting economic livelihood, education and strive for social justice, this book investigates the possibilities and challenges of alternative development.

Contents: 1. Introduction: Rethinking Orthodox Development * 2. NGOs and Development Practices * 3. Promoting Economic Livelihood * 4. Educating the Indigenous People * 5. Striving for Social Justice * 6. Ethnic Organizations and Alterative Development Discourse: Possibilities and Challenges

Once the world's largest ODA provider, contemporary Japan seems much less visible in international development. However, this book demonstrates that Japan, with its own aid philosophy, experiences, and models of aid, has ample lessons to offer to the international community as the latter seeks new paradigms of development cooperation. Contents: PART I: ORIGIN AND INSTITUTIONAL FOUNDATION OF JAPAN’S BILATERAL ODA * PART II: JAPAN, ASIA AND AFRICA: ADAPTING AID TO CHANGING CONTEXTS * PART III: INSTRUMENTS AND FOOTPRINTS * PART IV: JAPAN AND THE MULTILATERAL INSTITUTIONS * PART V: QUO VADIS: THE EAST ASIAN ODA MODEL AND THE POST-2015 DEVELOPMENT AGENDA November 2015 UK November 2015 US 400pp 15 b/w tables, 9 figures Hardback £75.00 / $120.00 / CN$138.00 Canadian Rights ebooks available

Gaborit, Dignity, Danish Institute Against Torture, Denmark Drawing on participatory action research conducted in Sierra Leone, Kosovo and the Philippines, Human Rights in Prisons analyses encounters between rights-based non-governmental organisations and prisons. It explores the previously under-researched perspectives of prison staff and prisoners on their lives and relationships. Contents: 1. Introducing Human Rights In Prisons * 2. Encountering Ourselves – A Critically Reflexive Practice Research Project * 3. First Encounters – Accessing Prisons * 4. Close Encounters With Prison Staff * 5. Close Encounters With Prisoners * 6.

Things Unspeakable Edited by Mary Luckhurst and Emilie Morin, University of York, UK "This book defines vitally important new territory in thinking about the intersection of theatre, social engagement, and human rights. Nuanced readings of 20th and 21st-century performance practices investigate the unique role of theatre in relation to issues such as post-conflict violence, torture, elder abuse, political censorship, corporate labour practices, and disability. Cathy Caruth analyses the politics of listening and Catherine Cole writes magisterially on institutional ethics and the performance of genocide. This is a brilliant expose of the way performance can sometimes transcend and sometimes spectacularly fail in the wake of the famously unspeakable horrors of Auschwitz." - Yoni Prior, Deakin University, Australia This volume investigates the rise of human rights discourses manifested in the global spectrum of theatre and performance since 1945. Essays address topics such as disability, discrimination indigenous rights, torture, gender violence, genocide and elder abuse. Contents: Part I: COLONIAL LEGACIES AND THE UNSPEAKABLE * Part II: UNSPEAKABILITY AND ETHNICITY * Part III: RETURNING HISTORIES, LISTENING, AND TRAUMA * Part IV: THEATRES OF ADVOCACY AND WESTERN LIBERALISM * Part V: MILITANCY AND CONTEMPORARY INVISIBILITIES September 2015 UK September 2015 US 270pp Hardback £60.00 / $90.00 / CN$104.00 Canadian Rights ebooks available

Steve Matthewman, Department of Sociology, University of Auckland, New Zealand "A book that drills to the heart of one of the characteristic, but unremarked features of present times: disaster glut. In a richly documented, eminently readable text, Matthewman explodes the twin mystique that disasters are either natural or random events […] This is Sociology as it should be: a book that shows how, and why, we are brainblind about the operation of power and influence in framing our comprehension of the real world […] a book to admire and relish by anyone interested in understanding the way we live now." - Chris Rojek, City University London, UK Disasters are part of the modern condition, a source of physical anxiety and existential angst, and they are increasing in frequency, cost and severity. Drawing on both disaster research and social theory, this book offers a critical examination of their causes, consequences and future avoidance. Contents: 1. Introduction * 2. Sociology and Disasters * 3. Accidents, Disasters and Revelation * 4. The New Normal * 5. Riskworld? New Species of Trouble * 6. Political Economy, I: Capitalism and Disaster * 7.

Helen Yanacopulos, Open University, UK "This is a timely book and splendid contribution to the current debates about the future role of NGOs. It exposes some of the brutal truths of running an NGO, pointing out the mismatch between their non-profit purposes and their daily corporate style management. It also stresses that there is a strong need for an honest dialogue about what NGOs are trying to achieve and how they go about doing that, because this is essential for securing a long term trust in the sector. The author demonstrates clearly that the current relationship NGOs have with the wider public is an outdated one and needs rehabilitation if it is to survive in a new and changed world." – Erla Thrandardottir, Visiting Research Fellow, City University London, UK The world of international non-governmental organisations (INGOs) has dramatically changed during the last two decades. The author critically analyses the engagement of INGOs within the contemporary international development landscape, enabling readers to further understand INGOs involvement in the politics of social change.

Mixed Methods Research in Poverty and Vulnerability Sharing Ideas and Learning Lessons Edited by Keetie Roelen, University of Sussex, UK, Laura Camfield, University of East Anglia, UK "This timely and empirically rich volume adds to the growing chorus of voices in favour of mixed method research on poverty and vulnerability. The authors add new elements to the existing literature, neatly framed in terms of 'credibility, complexity and usability', and make a compelling case for the value-added of such approaches. This book should be consulted widely by academics, development practitioners and policy makers engaged with these issues." – Paul Schaffer, Trent University, Canada The added value of mixed methods research in poverty and vulnerability is now widely established. Nevertheless, gaps and challenges remain. This volume shares experiences from research in developed and developing country contexts on how mixed methods approaches can make research more credible, usable and responsive to complexity.

Cultures of Wellbeing Method, Place, Policy Edited by Sarah C. White and Chloe Blackmore, University of Bath, UK “Cultures of Wellbeing is an absolute ‘must-read’ for anyone working on wellbeing. As so often with anthropologically informed research, comparative study opens up the assumptions underpinning policy approaches and emphasises the importance of attending to the specificities of people, places and their histories. This rich volume of case studies engages and refines an approach to wellbeing that offers a serious and significant alternative to the orthodoxies of economics or psychology. All the chapters are written very clearly making the book highly accessible across different disciplines and beyond academia. And the introductory chapter offers one of the most lucid summaries of the state of wellbeing research you could hope to read.” - Sarah Atkinson, Professor of Geography and Medical Humanities, Durham University, UK The authors challenge psychological perspectives on happiness and subjective wellbeing. Highlighting the politics of quantitative and qualitative methodologies, case studies across continents explore wellbeing in relation to health, children and youth, migration, economics, religion, family, land mines, national surveys, and indigenous identities.

Sustainability and Energy Politics

John Vogler, Keele University, UK "John Vogler has written a fascinating study of the ways in which climate change can be explained by the theory of international relations. This is a muchneeded treatment of the relationship between the functional imperative of non-state actors for action on climate control and the political drivers behind the behaviour of dominant states. This is a mustread for those trying to understand how science and politics clash over climate change. Vogler's book is full of excellent examples of how politics has framed the climate change debate internationally, and explains why achieving agreement has proven so difficult." - Professor Sir Steve Smith, University of Exeter, UK John Vogler examines the international politics of climate change, with a focus on the United Nations Framework Convention (UNFCCC). He considers how the international system treats the problem of climate change, analysing the ways in which this has been defined by the international community and the interests and alignments of state governments.

Instead, it articulates the ways climate policy needs to confront the collective nature of our predicament.

Proposing a renovation of the metaphor of the urban fabric, Interwoven Cities develops an analysis of how cities might be woven into alternative patterns, to better sustain social and ecological life.

Cities and the Global Politics of the Environment

Renewable Energy Transformation or Fossil Fuel Backlash Vested Interests in the Political Economy Espen Moe, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Norway Renewable energy is rising within an energy system dominated by powerful vested energy interests in fossil fuels, nuclear and electric utilities.

Climate Change and Social Movements

Environmental Discourse and Politics

Civil Society and the Development of National Climate Change Policy

Alex Lo, University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong "A masterful account of how and why carbon trading has come to the forefront in China. This book is packed with insights into Chinese climate policy and Chinese government in general, showing how climate policy is inextricably linked to a discourse of nationalism and state-led development." – John S. Dryzek, Centenary Professor and Australian Research Council Laureate Fellow, University of Canberra, Australia This book explores the political aspects of China's climate change policy, focusing on the newly established carbon markets and carbon trading schemes. Lo makes a case for understanding the policy change in terms of discourse and in relation to narratives of national power and development. Contents: 1. New Episode * 2.

China’s Renewable Energy Revolution John A. Mathews, Macquarie University, Australia, Hao Tan, University of Newcastle, Australia "John Mathews and Hao Tan, the leading specialists on China's transformational energy policy, have written an authoritative book assessing the prospects of China's green energy revolution. As the world number one consumer of coal and producer of greenhouse gases moves to become the premier producer of renewable energy, and as its coal consumption continues its planned drop, much depends on the outcome. The question is whether the great reversal can occur in time to forestall disaster for China and the world." - Professor Mark Selden, Cornell University, USA and Editor, The AsiaPacific Journal The authors suggest that China's renewable energy system, the largest in the world, will quickly supersede the black energy system that has powered the country's rapid rise as workshop of the world – and for reasons that have more to do with fixing environmental pollution and enhancing energy security than with curbing carbon emissions. Contents: 1. Introduction * 2. Major trends in China’s energy revolution * 3. China’s energy producing and using industries - industrial dynamics * 4.

Climate Change and Individual Responsibility Agency, Moral Disengagement and the Motivational Gap Wouter Peeters, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium, Andries De Smet, Lisa Diependaele and Sigrid Sterckx, Ghent University, Belgium "The mysteries of motivation that have bamboozled many students of climate change are confronted head-on in this ground-breaking and valuable exploration of the psychological mechanisms of moral disengagement that underlie our mystifying inaction in the face of the growing dangers. The authors thoroughly demonstrate how deeply misleading our conventional phenomenology of moral agency is as ordinarily applied to climate change and suggest positive strategies for tackling moral disengagement while time remains." - Henry Shue, University of Oxford, UK This book discusses the agency and responsibility of individuals in climate change, and argues that these are underemphasized, enabling individuals to maintain their consumptive lifestyles without having to accept moral responsibility for their luxury emissions.

Investigative Journalism, Environmental Problems and Modernisation in China Jingrong Tong, University of Leicester, UK "An important and subtle account of one of the major paradoxes of our times: how can an authoritarian government, some of the world's worst polluters and environmental problems, and a strong tradition of environmental investigative journalism all exist within one nation? Jingrong Tong begins with an ode to lost landscapes, before revealing how an informed citizenry can invoke government accountability and intervention even at the most unlikely of times." - Libby Lester, University of Tasmania, Australia This book examines how the news media in general, and investigative journalism in particular, interprets environmental problems and how those interpretations contribute to the shaping of a discourse of risk that can compete against the omnipresent and hegemonic discourse of modernisation in Chinese society.

IPE AND ECONOMICS OF DEVELOPMENT Religion and the Politics of Development Edited by Philip Fountain, National University of Singapore, Singapore, Robin Bush, Research Triangle International, Indonesia, R. Michael Feener, National University of Singapore, Singapore "Originating from a conference hosted by an academic powerhouse, the Asia Research Institute (ASI), National University of Singapore, Religion and the Politics of Development is much more coherent than most edited compilations. It combines a sophisticated, questioning editorial vision with ethnographic richness, and substantially expands the existing body of comparative research literature on this topic. The quasi-religious character of supposedly secular movements and institutions is thoughtfully exposed, including those that sacralize 'development', while pro-poor initiatives are shown to be dangerously narrow-minded when they are grounded in a dismissive approach to religion. The reader is left in no doubt about the deficiencies of aid and welfare provision in all the social contexts considered by the twelve contributors, but is reminded that world politics would be in an even worse state without the 'will to improve'." - Jonathan Benthall, University College London, UK This volume brings emerging research on religion and development into conversation with politics. Deploying innovative conceptual frameworks, and drawing on empirical research from across contemporary Asia, this collection makes an incisive contribution to the analysis of aid and development processes. Contents: Introduction; Robin Bush, Philip Fountain and R. Michael Feener * 1. Religion and the Politics of Development in Asia; Philip Fountain, Robin Bush, R. Michael Feener * 2.

EU Leadership in Energy and Environmental Governance Global and Local Challenges and Responses Edited by Jakub M. Godzimirski, Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI), Norway "Concrete, conscientious, clear - this tour d'horizon of Europe's nodal role in the world's energy networks is all of those things. Instead of the usual highfalutin' speculations about crises, clashes and civilisational wars, we are treated to a multi-perspectival summing up of a central issue. The tension between Europe's integrational approach and the jealous guarding of sovereignty that characterises most of the other parties emerges as a major theme, but the emphasis is on the nitty gritty of everyday cooperation. There is plenty of caviar for the initiated here, but first and foremost this is an authoritative summing up." - Iver Neumann, London School of Economics, UK This edited collection focuses on the impact of the changing global distribution of power on the EU's energy policy and ability to project its approach to energyrelated issues abroad. It maps the EU's changing position on global energy, the impact of various factors on its energy policy, and its relations with Russia, China, the USA and Brazil. Contents: Introduction; Jakub M.

The Political Economy of Banking Roman Goldbach, University of Dresden, Germany "In this superbly written and empirically rich book, Roman Goldbach provides the most convincing analysis that I have yet to come across of the failure to achieve effective international coordination in order tackle financial instability. This is International Political Economy at its most innovative, theoretically and methodologically, and will be of interest to international relations scholars and students interested in international coordination more generally. Goldbach points to the 'unchecked simultaneity of national and transnational influence' in international standard setting on banking to explain coordination failure and develops a novel and effective way to measure the influence of the main policy actors involved." - David Howarth, University of Luxembourg, Luxembourg The author provides a theoretical framework of the global political economy of banking regulation and analyses the policies and politics of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision. He demonstrates how global governance has contributed to the onset of the Great Recession and continues to increase the likelihood of future global financial crises.

IPE AND ECONOMICS OF DEVELOPMENT Rising Powers and Multilateral Institutions Edited by Dries Lesage, University of Ghent, Belgium, Thijs Van de Graaf, University of Ghent, Belgium "This is a really useful, high quality edited collection. It gathers together several distinguished analysts of global institutions and asks them all to consider the new issues and changing trends generated for these institutions by the rise of non-Western powers in global politics. The book genuinely adds to our knowledge and understanding in this key, but often neglected, dimension of global economic and political change." - Anthony Payne, University of Sheffield, UK The rise of new powers such as China and India is sending shockwaves through the global multilateral system. This volume systematically examines how 13 multilateral institutions are responding to this shift, with some deploying innovative outreach and reform activities, while others are paralyzed by gridlock or even retreat from the global scene.

The Global Division of Labour Development and Inequality in World Society Richard Münch, University of Bamberg, Germany "Contributions that utilize classical and modern sociological theory are still a rare breed within the burgeoning literature on development and global inequality. In this groundbreaking book, Richard Münch builds on Durkheim's classical approach for the sociological exploration of a global division of labour. Going beyond the usual confines of international political economy, he forcefully demonstrates what it means to think about development and inequality within the broader social context of a world society." - Mathias Albert, Universität Bielefeld, Germany Global free trade is one of the most controversial phenomena of our time. Richard Münch offers a new theory of global labour division to explain deeper transformations in the production and distribution of wealth brought about by global free trade. He then carries out and analyzes empirical investigations based on this theory. Contents: 1. Introduction: The dynamics of global labour division * 2. The field of global trade: IGOs, NGOs and transnational corporations * 3. The principles of global trade: The World Trade Organization * 4.

Antitrust Institutions and Policies in the Globalising Economy Eleonora Poli, Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI), Italy "Poli has generated a welcome contribution to the study of global anti-trust policy formation. Crafting an institutional IPE interpretation, the book weaves together a convincing narrative of how American ideas have been disseminated internationally and internalised domestically – without losing sight of how national specificities mediate such institutionalisation, indeed neoliberalisation, processes." - Thomas Marois, SOAS, UK Eleonora Poli analyses how ideas and material interests have come to determine the evolution of antitrust policies in the USA, EU, Japan and BRICS. She argues that three major economic crises together with market globalisation have changed governments' perceptions of market competition, giving rise to a neo-liberal global phase.

IPE AND ECONOMICS OF DEVELOPMENT The Political Economy of Microfinance

Mapping India’s Capitalism

Financializing Poverty

Old and New Regions

Philip Mader, Institute of Development Studies, UK "Microfinance is financialization dressed up as charity: a pathway for global finance to penetrate the capitalist periphery. In this richly documented book, Mader dispels the myth that debt can move the poor out of poverty. Far from an economics of liberation, microfinance is part of a politics of repression: it extracts more wealth than it creates, and reinforces economic dependence." - Wolfgang Streeck, Emeritus Professor, Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies, Germany According to the author, rather than alleviating poverty, microfinance financialises poverty. By indebting poor people in the Global South, it drives financial expansion and opens new lands of opportunity for the crisis-ridden global capital markets. This book raises fundamental concerns about this widelycelebrated tool for social development. Contents: 1. A Framework for Engaging Microfinance * 2. A Genealogy of Microfinance * 3. The Financialisation of Poverty * 4. Financialising Public Goods * 5. Mechanisms of a Microfinance Crisis * 6. At the Crossroads of Development and Finance * 7.

Valuation, Distribution, Governance Dirk Jacob Wolfson, Erasmus University Rotterdam, The Netherlands "This interdisciplinary and non-technical introduction nests economic efficiency, fairness and ecological principles in a political economy framework. 'Situational contracts' meld these principles to yield understanding of how democratic societies seek a sustainable future. Such contracts reflect both political constraints and proxy information on citizen preferences; they lead to policy outcomes which mesh concerns with efficiency, justice, and "planners' preferences". This book provides unique and valuable insights into the complex process in which environmental policy is formed." - Robert Haveman, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA The author shows how sustainable development may be organized, valued and distributed by introducing situational contracting as an interactive and contextual mode of governance. Situational contracting provides a road map for where we want to go, serving the prevailing ideology in implementing the trade between efficiency and fairness. Contents: 1. Introduction * 1.1.

Indigenous Communities and Settler Colonialism Land Holding, Loss and Survival in an Interconnected World Edited by Zoë Laidlaw, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK, Alan Lester, University of Sussex, UK "Though the restless mobility at the heart of 'settler' colonialism is well known, its indigenous histories have been comparatively invisible in the British empire context. As this wide-ranging collections shows, indigenous perseverance happened on the move. Taken together, the essays remind us that dispossession required flexible responses at multiple scales and speeds. They urge us to think of the polycentric, networked histories made visible here not as simply as a static archive, but as the dynamic grounds for thinking new kinds of indigenous futures as well." - Antoinette Burton, University of Illinois, USA The new world created through Anglophone emigration in the 19th century has been much studied. But there have been few accounts of what this meant for the Indigenous populations. This book shows that Indigenous communities tenaciously held land in the midst of dispossession, whilst becoming interconnected through their struggles to do so. Contents: 1.

Edited by Oliver Bakewell, University of Oxford, UK, Godfried Engbersen, Erasmus University of Rotterdam, The Netherlands, Maria Lucinda Fonseca, Institute of Geography and Spatial Planning at the University of Lisbon (IGOT-ULisboa), Portugal, Cindy Horst, Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO), Norway "Beyond Networks. Feedback in International Migration challenges conventional notions about migration systems and networks by enhancing our understanding of feedback—its direct and indirect effects, its narrow and broad reach, and how its early manifestations shape migratory patterns to come. Written in clear, accessible language, based on fieldwork in countries that are well studied and relatively unexplored, this book makes a welcome contribution to our understanding of the drivers and perpetuators of movement." - Peggy Levitt, Wellesley College, USA; European University Institute, Italy; Harvard University, USA This edited volume asks how the arrival of migrants at one time influences the decisions of those considering migration later. Through a set of case studies of migration in twelve 'corridors', it shows how different forms of feedback by different actors and through different channels contribute to our understanding of diverging migration flows.

Borderities and the Politics of Contemporary Mobile Borders Anne Laure Amilhat Szary, Université Grenoble Alpes, France, Frédéric Giraut, Université de Genève, Switzerland "Anyone who is interested in the workings of borders in a globalized world should read this book. With the remarkable concept of 'borderity,' this book goes beyond circular definitions of the state, territory, and borders – in which each of these terms seems to call forth the others – to instead usher in a new socio-spatial understanding of the border equal to our challenging times." - Anna Secor, University of Kentucky, USA This book explores the emerging forms and functions of contemporary mobile borders.

MIGRATION, ETHNICITY AND IDENTITY Cosmopolitanism, Self-Determination and Territory Justice with Borders Oliviero Angeli, Department of Political Science, University of Dresden, Germany "Territory is back in political theory and Angeli's concise book shows why liberals ought to take it seriously. Angeli reconciles moral cosmopolitanism with rights of states to self-determination and shows how control over immigration and resources must be limited but can also be justified. He writes with exceptional clarity and makes his argument accessible to a wide audience." – Rainer Bauböck, European University Institute, Florence, Italy Territorial rights are often perceived to create barriers and discriminate against the poor. This study challenges that notion by re-examining the cosmopolitan understanding of territory. It addresses issues from the right to vote, the right to exclude others to the legitimacy of territorial boundaries and the exploitation of natural resources. Contents: Introduction * 1.

Metropolitan Identities and Twentieth-Century Decolonization

Lorenzo Veracini, Institute for Social Research, Swinburne University of Technology, Victoria, Australia

Lena Tan, University of Otago, New Zealand "Metropolitan Identities and Twentieth-Century Decolonization is an interesting, engaging, and original work.

POLITICS, GOVERNANCE, GLOBALIZATION AND THE STATE Middle Powers in World Trade Diplomacy India, South Africa and the Doha Development Agenda Charalampos Efstathopoulos, Aberystwyth University, UK "Global governance is increasingly influenced by emerging economies, something which the status quo powers must acknowledge and accommodate. Nowhere is this better exemplified than in the discussions within the WTO, not least in the Doha round of talks. This important book provides a muchneeded comparative analysis of the roles of two key developing countries—India and South Africa—in these often contentious deliberations. The author's detailed analysis gives an excellent overview and analytical appraisal of how New Delhi and Pretoria adopted various positions during the Doha process and why.

POLITICS, GOVERNANCE, GLOBALIZATION AND THE STATE The Role of Regional Organizations in Disaster Risk Management

Post-frontier Resource Governance Indigenous Rights, Extraction and Conservation in the Peruvian Amazon

A Strategy for Global Resilience Simon Hollis, Swedish National Defence College, Sweden "The rise of supra-national organization is a striking feature of our period. Much of this organization is regional, rather than global, but the regional structures have gotten less attention. Simon Hollis has done us a real service with this extraordinary study of the rise of Disaster Risk Management arrangements in regional organizations around the world. His core finding is that the DRM arrangements dramatically reflect global ideas and models rather than region-specific ones. This directly addresses the issue of whether regional structures fragment global society: it turns out they are most prominently media for integration." - John W. Meyer, Stanford University, USA The use of regional organizations to mitigate and respond to disasters has become a global trend. This book examines the role regional organizations play in managing disaster risk through a comparative study of ten regional organizations, demonstrating their current limitations and future potential.

Peter Bille Larsen, University of Lucerne, Switzerland "Moving beyond previous studies of the frontier, Peter Bille Larsen proposes an original concept 'the post-frontier', inviting the reader to revisit the problem in all its complexity in an uncompromising and bold manner. Oil and mining projects are juxtaposed with indigenous territorial titles and protected areas, as the two sides of the same dynamics. A radical book and a highly interesting theoretical contribution to understand a burning topical issue that directs anthropological reflection towards new horizons." - Alexandre Surrallés, Instituto Francés de Estudios Andinos Laboratoire d'anthropologie sociale (IFEA), Collège de France The author presents an anthropological analysis of the regulatory technologies that characterize contemporary resource frontiers.

The Welfare Trait

How State Benefits Affect Personality Adam Perkins, King’s College London, UK "The Welfare Trait is electrifying – energising and shocking. Dr Perkins, an expert in the neurobiology of personality, argues that a generous welfare state can proliferate employment-resistant personality characteristics. The scientific discharge of this new theory is sure to spark high voltage debate – be prepared for a jolt!" – Philip Corr, Professor of Psychology, City University, London, UK Childhood disadvantage encourages the development of antisocial, 'employment-resistant' personality characteristics which harm life outcomes in adulthood. A welfare state therefore risks harming society by increasing the number of citizens who develop employmentresistant personality characteristics due to disadvantage during childhood. Contents: Preface * 1. What is Personality and why does the Welfare State matter? * 2. The Employment-Resistant Personality Profile * 3. The Lifelong Impact of Personality * 4. The Influence of Benefits on Claimant Reproduction * 5. Childhood Disadvantage and EmploymentResistance * 6. Genetic Influences on Personality * 7. Personality as a Product of Nature and Nurture * 8.

King Adkins, South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, USA "Falling through the cracks between canonical studies of punk and recent work on post-punk, the music and culture of New Wave remain unexplored by scholars or critics. Matthew Adkins' New Wave: Image is Everything goes a long way in filling in this gap. Full of insights and theoretically rich, this book sets new wave against the backdrop of 1980s image culture, tracing its roots in Pop Art and deftly mapping the connections between music, media and that cultural condition which came to be known as postmodernism." - Will Straw, McGill University, Canada New Wave: Image is Everything traces the evolution of the often neglected pop music genre, new wave. Using artists from Elvis Costello to Cyndi Lauper as illustrations, the book argues that new wave was among the first flowerings of postmodern theory in popular culture. Contents: 1. An Introduction * 2. New Wave’s Rise in the UK * 3. New Wave’s Rise in the US * 4. Making the Image Everything * 5. Pure Images * 6. The Return of Meaning * Bibliography * Discography

Language, Development Aid and Human Rights in Education Curriculum Policies in Africa and Asia Zehlia Babaci-Wilhite, University of Oslo, Norway "Drawing on extensive personal research and comprehensive literature reviews, Dr. Zehlia BabaciWilhite's new book is a tour-de-force analysis of the continuing colonization of the mind fostered by the use of European languages in basic schooling in many African and Asian countries. This linguistic imperialism is meticulously connected to issues of education equity and quality, children's rights, international aid, and development.

Debating Race in Contemporary India Duncan McDuie-Ra, University of New South Wales, Australia "Debating Race in Contemporary India is one of those rare books that initiate a dialogue about the idea of India, seen through the prism of Northeast communities.

Edited by Mark R. Mullins, University of Auckland, New Zealand, Koichi Nakano, Sophia University, Japan "Japan is no stranger to natural disasters. But the triple disasters of 11 March 2011 have deeply affected Japan as a whole, creating a ferment in which the centre often seems at odds with the periphery. The authors of this superb volume critically examine the political, religious, social and cultural responses, where grass roots activism challenges official complacency and assumptions about right to rule." - Arthur Stockwin, Nissan Institute, University of Oxford, UK Japan was shaken by the 'double disaster' of earthquake and sarin gas attack in 1995, and in 2011 it was hit once again by the 'triple disaster' of earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear meltdown.

Twenty-first Century Feminism

From Theory to Practice Levi Obijiofor, University of Queensland, Australia "This comprehensive, go-to book will be invaluable to field specialists and in upper-division and graduate courses in (international) communication. It focuses on developing societies' communication landscape from a 21st-century perspective: technology as a transformative force in every facet of those societies.

The downsides of their use are also clearly presented." - Cornelius B. Pratt, Temple University, USA New technologies may have transformed human societies, but not much has been written on how they are impacting people in Africa and other developing regions, in terms of how they use technology to enhance their socioeconomic conditions in everyday life.
