Free markets & food riots : the politics of global adjustment by John Walton( Book )

13 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes and explains the extraordinary wave of popular protest that swept across the so-called Third World and the countries of the former socialist bloc during the period from the late 1970s to the early 1990s, in response to the mounting debt crises and the austerity measures widely adopted as part of economic 'reform' and 'adjustment'. During the development decades of the 1960s and 1970s, governments around the world borrowed heavily to finance economic and social development, only to succumb to the global debt crisis and general recession of the 1980s. The last 15-20 years have witnessed the increasing adoption of neo-liberal austerity measures, led by the stabilization and structural adjustment programmes of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, which have averted a crisis for international banks by shifting the burden to the urban poor in the less developed or 'emergent' developing nations. Free Markets and Food Riots explores this general proposition in a cross-national study of the austerity protests, or 'IMF Riots' that have affected so many debtor nations since the mid-1970s. The book argues that modern austerity protests, like the classical 'bread riots' in eighteenth-century Europe, are political acts aimed at injustice, but acts that are an integral part of the process of international economic and political restructuring. Modern food riots are most important for what they reveal about global economic transformation and its social, and political, consequences
The legendary detective : the private eye in fact and fiction by John Walton( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""I'm in a business where people come to me with troubles. Big troubles, little troubles, but always troubles they dont want to take to the cops." That's Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe, succinctly setting out our image of the private eye. A no-nonsense loner, working on the margins of society, working in the darkness to shine a little light. The reality is a little different - but no less fascinating. In The Legendary Detective, John Walton offers a sweeping history of the American private detective in reality and myth, from the earliest agencies to the hard-boiled heights of the 1930s and '40s. Drawing on previously untapped archival accounts of actual detective work, Walton traces both the growth of major private detective agencies like Pinkerton, which became powerful bulwarks against social and labor unrest, and the motley, unglamorous work of small-time operatives. He then goes on to show us how writers like Dashiell Hammett and editors of sensational pulp magazines like Black Mask embellished on actual experiences and fashioned an image of the PI as a compelling, even admirable, necessary evil, doing society's dirty work while adhering to a self-imposed moral code. Scandals, public investigations, and regulations brought the boom years of private agencies to an end in the late 1930s, Walton explains, in the process fully cementing the shift from reality to fantasy."--Publisher's website
Storied land : community and memory in Monterey by John Walton( Book )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"California began in Monterey, and Monterey's story is arguably the story of California. In this highly original book, John Walton examines the historical formation and re-formation of community in Monterey over a period of 230 years. He decribes the history of the city from its establishment as the capital of Spanish California in 1770 to its contemporary life as a center of tourism, education, environmentalism, and historical preservation."
