Foreign private manufacturing investment and multinational corporations : an annotated bibliography by Sanjaya Lall( Book )

Almost two decades after the Vietnam War, most Americans remain convinced that U.S. prisoners are still being held captive in Southeast Asia, and many even accuse the government of concealing their existence. But as H. Bruce Franklin demonstrates in his startling investigation, there is no plausible basis for the belief in live POWs. Through scrupulous research, he shows for the first time how this illusion was fabricated and then converted into a powerful myth. Franklin reveals that in 1969 the Nixon administration, aided by militant pro-war forces, manufactured the POW/MIA issue to deflect attention from American atrocities in Vietnam, to undermine the burgeoning anti-war movement, and to stymie the Paris peace talks, resulting in the prolongation of the Vietnam War for another four years. Successive administrations, in an effort to mobilize public support for their continued economic and political warfare against Vietnam, asserted the possibility of live POWs at great emotional cost to both family members of the missing and countless Americans distressed about the fate of those supposedly left behind in Indochina. Born of political expediency, the POW/MIA issue was transformed in the 1980s into a potent myth. American culture was transfigured as movies and novels designed to reimage the Vietnam War turned the imagined post-war POWs into crucial symbols of betrayed American manhood and honor. Finally the myth began to turn against its creators when many Americans became convinced that the government itself was conspiring to betray the missing men. As he traces the evolution of the POW/MIA myth, Franklin not only exposes it as an elaborate hoax at the highest levels of government, but also explains why the myth has penetrated to the heart of American life. By confronting the "true tragedy of the missing in Vietnam," Franklin helps us to understand how to heal the terrible psychological and spiritual wounds of the Vietnam War

Alternative development strategies in subSaharan Africa( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Policy-making in Africa today is dominated by the adjustment policies of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. The book considers the consistency between these policies and long-run development needs. Detailed analysis of country experience shows that the past record in many African economies was deficient--especially in the failure to build up human capabilities, inadequate institutional development, distorted incentives and a bias against small-scale industry. The book proposes an alternative strategy containing seven elements: an agrarian focus; support for rural non-agricultural development; the promotion of industrialization; regional import substitution; diversification of exports; development of human capabilities; and participation and institution-building. Serious inconsistencies are found between the achievement of such a strategy and current adjustment policies. In a number of important respects the adjustment policies are moving African economies away from an appropriate long-run pattern of development, especially through the cuts in expenditures on education, infrastructure and investment generally, the de-industrialization that has occurred and the strong emphasis on primary commodity exports."--BOOK JACKET

Failing to compete : technology development and technology systems in Africa by Sanjaya Lall( Book )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This unique study draws on extensive fieldwork assessing technology systems in Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Zimbabwe in the context of their export competitiveness. Its emphasis is on the role of technology systems in building industrial competitiveness and in this it finds deficiencies in the systems in all these countries, though there are also significant differences between them. Comparisons are made with more successful economies, particularly those of East Asia, and policy implications are drawn for the strengthening of technology support systems. Central to the book is its combination of academic analysis with a strong policy focus - policy implications are drawn for each case-study country." "Failing to Compete will be of interest to all academics and scholars of development economics, international competitiveness and technology studies."--Jacket
