Africa's stalled development : international causes and cures by David K Leonard( Book )

8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thoughtful discussion probes the international roots of Africa's civil conflicts and lackluster economies. Analyzing an unwitting system that creates a set of incentives inimical to development, the authors offer a new way of thinking about Africa's development dilemmas and the policy options for addressing them. Weak states, aid dependence, crushing debt, and enclave economies, argue the authors, create disincentives for long-term economic growth and even peace. The nature of Africa's interaction with the international system often supports these negative features; thus, the remedy must come from a radical restructuring of that relationship. Africa's Stalled Development heeds that call by presenting specific and innovative prescriptions for change that are sure to stimulate a much-needed debate. -- Publisher description
African successes : four public managers of Kenyan rural development by David K Leonard( Book )

14 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For the past twenty-five years Kenya has progressed while much of Africa has stagnated. Instead of the economic disasters, underdevelopment, and serious food shortages that have plagued its neighbors, Kenya has enjoyed an expanding economy and agriculture. And instead of a corrupt and incompetent public administration, Kenya has established several successful rural development programs run by public servants with integrity and professional commitment. What accounts for these Kenyan successes? In this innovative study, David Leonard illustrates the way public policy is made and implemented in Kenya by focusing on four public officials who have had a great impact on rural development. He skillfully weaves his analyses of Kenya's political, economic, and administrative systems into evocative biographical portraits of Charles Karanja, General Manager of the Kenya Tea Development Authority, Harris Mule, administrative head of Finance and Planning, Ishmael Muriithi, head of the Veterinary Department, and Simeon Nyachae, Cabinet Secretary and chief of the Civil Service. The result is a fascinating glimpse of Kenyan political life from the inside, set in the context of the historical and social forces that have shaped that country's government"--Publisher's description

Where are 'pockets' of effective agencies likely in weak governance states and why? : a propositional inventory by David K Leonard( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is well established that even in countries that have poor governance and weak public sectors exceptional, well-functioning government and governmentsupported agencies do exist. What has not been established is how and why these pockets of productivity are able to emerge. Some attribute their existence to exceptional leadership and good management. Others, while not doubting the importance of these internal factors, believe that these pockets are generated by their place in the countrys political economy. The literature on this subject is dominated by case studies and the consequence is that a very large number of hypotheses have been generated about what the political processes at work might be. This paper inventories the array of available hypotheses and condenses them into five sets of mega-hypotheses. It also discusses how social scientists and practioners ought to think about something whose occurrence is idiosyncratic and therefore perhaps an exception to the normal causal patterns sketched by research

The rowan tree : the second Toby and Sox adventure by Paula Broderick( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second Toby and Sox adventure in the trilogy. The excitement builds as the adventure continues. Toby's father, Edward, takes Toby and the young dragon Sox to Stonehenge and the famous Vale of the White Horse, both important landmarks in dragon history. Edward explains the real story behind these World Heritage sites which are visited by thousands of children every year. Immersing children in the days when dragons lived peacefully with man, they learn how lions and unicorns fought their last great battle on the grassy hills leaving the legacy of the unicorn clearly visible for future generations to see and visit, and why dragons and unicorns now have to live in a secret world. The Rowan Tree gathers pace as a new super hero is introduced; the self-named 'Monty Action Mouse', a lovable character that epitomises Paula's exceptional talent for characterisation. With the heroes facing new challenges in every chapter as they fight to save their friends, children will not want to put the book down. They come to learn that the events of the past can have drastic effects on the future, a future told in The White Dragon, the upcoming third novel in the series
