Beyond reconstruction in Afghanistan : lessons from development experience by John D Montgomery( Book )

18 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The interaction of failed states, terrorism and the need for "nation building" is at the top of the international agenda, with particular focus on Afghanistan and Iraq. This path breaking collection brings together top analysts to examine the goals and challenges facing efforts to reconstruct states that have collapsed into anarchy or have been defeated in war, drawing lessons from 50 years of past experience with post-conflict reconstruction and development around the world to assess development plans in a country devastated by more than a century of conflict. While the focus is on Afghanistan, important comparisons-including to reconstruction after the American Civil War-provide historical context and lessons of difficulties to overcome and realistic limitations of ambitions. Throughout, particular attention is paid to the interaction of the goals of external and domestic actors, highlighting the importance of understanding the internal social, economic, and political environment of the society receiving assistance

Great policies : strategic innovations in Asia and the Pacific Basin by Dennis A Rondinelli( Book )

9 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book describes 11 "great policies" - strategic innovations designed to deal with problems that transcend normal boundaries of government action. Examples range from the Marshall Plan in the U.S. to the "reverse brain-drain" policy in China, and from the financing of land reform by the distribution of industrial bonds in Taiwan to exploration of community natural resource management in Latin America. These actions did not emerge incrementally from existing policies, but represented departures from conventional organizations and sectoral responsibilities. Although such strategic innovations are rare, these examples suggest that when they occur, they are recognizably different from policies that develop incrementally. They create new paradigms of public action, they generate new expectations and demands, and they require extraordinary processes of implementation. Such "mega-policies" imply the possibility of developing transferable lessons from otherwise unique cases. These "mega-policies" range from economic growth strategies to social initiatives and from international economic transactions to technical exchanges. This work will be of great interest to scholars and policy makers involved with economic and social change, and Asian/Pacific and Third World Studies."--BOOK JACKET

Sovereignty under challenge : how governments respond by Nathan Glazer( Book )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2017 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sovereignty-the authority of a state to wield ultimate power over its territory, its citizens, its institutions-is everywhere undergoing change as states respond in various ways to the challenges posed, from above and below. "Above" the state is the widening net of international institutions and treaties dealing with human rights, trade, investment, and monetary affairs; and "below" it are rising claims within states from long-resident groups discontented with the political order and from new migrants testing its authority. Sovereignty under Challenge deals with a range of such challenges and responses, analyzed in authoritative studies by leading scholars.The introductory chapter sets forth the theme that sovereignty is asserted clearly, but often unpredictably, when governments respond to challenge. It suggests ways of classifying these responses as variables that help explain the changing nature of sovereignty. Part 1, "The Citizen and the State," treats the rising tide of dual citizenship and the concerns this arouses in the United States; the work of national human rights commissions in Asia; and the challenge posed to the state by the Falungong movement in China. The two chapters in Part 2, "The Government as Decision-Maker," examine Japan's response to global warming and the problems of the World Health Organization in orchestrating collaboration among Southeast Asian states in implementing infectious disease control. Part 3, "Sovereignty and Culture," looks at conflicts engendered by outside change on indigenous economic, cultural, and legal institutions in India, Fiji, Indonesia, and Malaysia. The chapters in Part 4, "Sovereignty and the Economy," analyze the economic and cultural instability induced by Chinese migration to Russia's far east; the impact on state sovereignty brought about by transnational regulatory campaigns and social activism; the question of indigenous land rights in the Philippines; and the impact of transnational cor"--Provided by publisher

Values in education : social capital formation in Asia and the Pacific by John D Montgomery( Book )

6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Social capital creates or reinforces the mutual trust that binds people together. Some of the traditional human values in Asia and the cultural changes Asians face in order to survive in an era of globalization are presented in this collection of essays. The chapters emphasize the strong influence of values on education, the role of education in building social capital, and the necessity of expanding social capital in order to enhance human potential. In chapter 1 ("Defining Values"), John M. Heffron reviews the historical antecedents of some current philosophical interpretations of values relating to education and development. In chapter 2 ("Are Asian Values Different?"), John D. Montgomery looks at whether these values differ as regards fundamental issues. In chapter 3 ("Diffusion of Values and the Pacific Rim"), Nathan Glazer presents comparative cultural and historical evidence identifying core values in the Pacific Rim. In chapter 4 ("Continuity and Change in Popular Values on the Pacific Rim"), Alex Inkeles offers empirical measures of values arising in the context of social changes that attend modernization. In chapter 5 ("Education as Communication"), Ruth Hayhoe documents some of the processes by which formal and nonformal education actually communicate values. In chapter 6 ("Measuring Impact of Social Value and Change"), Wing-On Lee addresses the difficult problem of identifying and measuring the impact of changing values on individuals and society. In chapter 7 ("Promoting Human Rights in East Asian Value: Basic Education's Role"), William L. Cummings shows how values have infused the Japanese educational system, and in chapter 8 ("Engineering Values: Education Policies and Values Transmission"), Kai-ming Cheng examines the extent to which values can be engineered.
