Economies and societies in Latin America : a geographical interpretation by Peter R Odell( Book )

40 editions published between 1973 and 1981 in English and Undetermined and held by 963 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is necessary to say a little about the area of the world with which the book is concerned. The geographical concept of Latin America does not really need any justification. It exists as perhaps the best-defined world region and, in the post-war period particularly, the idea of Latin America to include all nations and territories lying to the south of the Rio Grande has become widely and formally accepted. Earlier expressions of concern in discussions over the concept of the existence in the continent of non-Spanish/Portuguese-speaking territories have largely disappeared as one after the other of these territories secuuured its independence and then, normally after a few years of indecision, determined to take political and institutional action to tie itself to the rest of the continent where the 'Latin' countries have, again after some hesitation, decided to accept the newcomers into the Latin American camp

Why carbon fuels will dominate the 21st century's global energy economy by Peter R Odell( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most eminent commentators on the vexed issue of oil and gas reserves makes his case that the supply position is secure for the medium term, and in doing so rebuts the doomsters who claim that imminent world oil and gas supply shortages presage a major world crisis; in fact, he cogently argues that the oil industry will be bigger in 2100 than 2000! Coal, oil and gas will continue to dominate the 21st century energy market, although there will be significant shifts in their respective market shares, a development with significant geopolitical implications

Global Governance and the Quest for Justice III : Civil Society by Peter R Odell( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book -- one in the four-volume set, Global Governance and the Quest for Justice -- focuses on themes of citizen organisation and empowerment set in the context of globalising legal processes. Chapter One sets the scene. Chapters Two, Three and Four focus on various challenges that globalisation poses for private law. How does substantive contract and tort doctrine that has been developed (mainly) for use within national legal systems adapt to more globalised dealings and wrongdoings? Should the source of regulation be private international law, harmonised national law, international accords (or some combination)? Chapters Five, Six and Seven focus on issues relating to access to justice (as a mode of empowerment) and its impact on the functioning of civil society. These chapters highlight a variety of procedural, professional and institutional challenges for access to justice in a globalised world. Chapter Eight considers how we are to reconcile the competing visions of the basis on which essential services are to be provided. In a global marketplace, is there any room for local values or for values other than those of free-market thinking? Finally, Chapter Nine focuses on the question of democracy in a globalised world. If civil society is to retain its political vitality, how are citizens to remain engaged and enfranchised as a new global politico-legal order takes shape?"--Bloomsbury Publishing
