Is geography destiny? : lessons from Latin America by John Luke Gallup( )

25 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 1,196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Challenging the premise that geography is destiny, this book joins a growing body of literature studying the links between geography and development. Focusing on Latin America, the book argues that based on a better understanding of geography, public policy can help control or channel its influence toward the goals of economic and social development. The principal purpose of this book is to contribute to the renaissance in research on geography as a factor that influences, but does not necessarily determine, development

Forty years after president Richard Nixon declared the "war against drugs", the debate about the efficiency and cost of the prohibition is still as vigorous as ever.

Alguien tiene que llevar la contraria by Alejandro Gaviria( )

4 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in Spanish and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Los 12 ensayos que conforman este libro son fruto de las reflexiones y las inquietudes de Alejandro Gaviria sobre ciertos temas que lo apasionan. Los escribió durante los últimos cinco años, en el poco tiempo libre que le dejaron sus obligaciones como Ministro de Salud. Tiempo robado, además, al sueño y a su familia. Los textos fueron una especie de catarsis para el funcionario y una manifestación de su optimismo por el mundo de las ideas. Es una obra ecléctica que discurre sobre las tesis de Estanislao Zuleta, Charles Darwin y Thomas Piketty, cuenta por qué en su concepción "meritocracia" era una palabra con un sentido peyorativo, expone las razones de su agnosticismo, comparte en forma de decálogos su escepticismo y presenta con cifras concretas el progreso social que ha experimentado Colombia en cincuenta años. Los hechos y pensamientos articulados en estas páginas van en contravía de lo socialmente aceptado, fluyen por cauces diferentes a los tradicionales. Son una sorpresa que lleva al autor a decirles a sus potenciales lectores: "Espero que aquí encuentren lo que no andaban buscando"

Hoy es siempre todavía : la historia de cómo descubrí que el cáncer es como la vida by Alejandro Gaviria( )

3 editions published in 2018 in Spanish and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Alejandro Gaviria la inminencia de la muerte le devolvió la vida. Hace casi un año le diagnosticaron un linfoma. En un comienzo los médicos pensaron que se podría enfrentar fácilmente, pero no fue así. Gaviria lo superó con un tratamiento agresivo. Durante el proceso recibió el apoyo y la solidaridad de miles de colombianos, y los dardos de algunos creyentes que le dijeron que lo que le pasaba era consecuencia de su ateísmo impenitente. En este libro reflexiona sobre lo que vivió, que lo afianzó aún más en su escepticismo religioso, y lo conecta con algunos de los temas que han pasado por su despacho en el Ministerio de Salud. Es un ensayo que mezcla su vivencia personal y profesional con la poesía, la que considera "la única religión que le va quedando a los hombres", y la literatura
