Description : Why are some countries rich and others poor? Colonialism, globalization, bad government, gender inequality, geography, and environmental degradation are just some of the potential answers to this complex question. Using a threefold framework of the West, the South, and the natural world, Shaping the Developing World provides a logical and intuitive structure for categorizing and evaluating the causes of underdevelopment. This interdisciplinary book also describes the social, political, and economic aspects of development and is relevant to students in political science, international studies, geography, sociology, economics, gender studies, and anthropology. The Second Edition has been updated to include the most recent development statistics and to incorporate new research on topics like climate change, democratization, religion and prosperity, the resource curse, and more. This second edition also contains expanded discussions of gender, financial inclusion, crime and police killings, and the Middle East, including the Syrian Civil War.

Description : Interdisciplinary in his scope, Andy Baker adeptly uses a threefold framework of the West, the South, and the Natural World to systematically break down the factors contributing to underdevelopment--from the legacies of colonialism and deficient domestic institutions, to the effects of globalization and the impact of geography and environmental degradation. Students learn to think like social scientists while coming to understand the interplay of influences on a nation's political, economic, and social development. Country case studies at the end of each chapter offer an ideal testing ground for applying the threefold framework, testing explanations with empirical data. Critical thinking questions then encourage students to weigh different theoretical arguments. A series of well-designed features develop students' understanding of economic indicators as well as highlight the ways development work is done in the field. Shaping the Developing World presents high-quality academic analysis and the latest scholarship in a format that's engaging, informative, and above all, accessible.

Description : ÔThis volume makes a valuable contribution to the dynamic and expanding field of scholarship on social policy in developing countries. In combining analytical frameworks used in comparative social policy analysis with an examination of key areas of policy and provision in selected countries, it will be a key resource for anyone interested in current debates in international social policy and welfare.Õ Ð Nicola Yeates, Open University, UK There is increasing interest in the significance of social policy in the management of welfare and risk in the developing world. This volume provides a critical analysis of the challenges and opportunities facing social protection systems in the global south, and examines current strategies for addressing poverty and welfare needs in the region. In particular, the text explores the extent to which the analytic models and concepts for the study of social policy in the industrialised North are relevant in a developing country context. The volume analyses the various institutions, actors, instruments and mechanisms involved in the welfare arrangements of developing countries and provides a study of the contexts, development and future trajectory of social policy in the global South. The bookÕs comparative and interdisciplinary approach will be of interest to anyone involved in social policy research and analysis and current welfare debates.

Description : This study argues that sharing knowledge across the boundaries of academia, government, and business is is essential for tracking innovation, while also concluding that there is no single model that is best for nurturing innovation. Using data on regional development in India and Europe, village renewal in Asia, and the role of education and information technology in each, the report concludes that breakthroughs come out of all kinds of innovation cultures and can be shared across cultural boundaries as well, making diversity the best incubator for new ideas.

Description : The development problems of many countries continue to escalate despite the huge sums of money that are spent on social, economic, and political programs. In order to determine why particular solutions to these problems often do not work, it is necessary to identify and evaluate the human factor traits that give rise to specific attitudes, behaviors, and actions. Human factor traits include personality characteristics and other dimensions of human performance that enable social, economic, and political institutions to function and remain functional over time. In this fascinating volume, contributors examine the role of human factor traits that may promote or hinder the effectiveness of economic development programs. It brings together scholars from a variety of disciplines to discuss the relevance of human factor traits in shaping history and development, with the ultimate goal of providing information that will help create safer and more prosperous societies in the future. Original and thought provoking, this volume will be of value to scholars studying international development and economic planning.

Description : During the Brazilian miracle (1967-1973), Brazil experienced impressive growth in GNP which exceeded 10% annually. One of the factors responsible for this was the existence of a triple alliance among the strong state bureaucracy, the influential national private bourgeoisie and the large number of foreign investors. The central question of this book is to what extent has industrial development in Brazil been influenced by the triple alliance in general, and tripartite joint ventures in particular during the '70s and '80s. Special attention will be given to the role of foreign transnationals. Using the petrochemical industry in Brazil as an example, Japanese, American and European participation in tripartite joint ventures is compared, focusing on two aspects: the stability of joint ventures structures in the tripartite model and the transfer of technology. This case study of the petrochemical complex of Camacari, located in the state of Bahia, shows that foreign firm origin plays a decisive role in the functioning of the tripartite model. Joint ventures with Japanese companies, which had arrived more recently in Brazil, lacked technological knowledge of petrochemical production, had a different corporate culture, and were more stable than those with American and European companies
