Brazil : a century of change( )

16 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brazil, the largest of the Latin American nations, is fast becoming a potent international economic player as well as a regional power. This English translation of an acclaimed Brazilian anthology provides critical overviews of Brazilian life, history, and culture and insight into Brazil's development over the past century. The distinguished essayists, most of whom are Brazilian, provide expert perspectives on the social, economic, and cultural challenges that face Brazil as it seeks future directions in the age of globalization. All of the contributors connect past, present, and future Brazil. Their analyses converge on the observation that although Brazil has undergone radical changes during the past one hundred years, trenchant legacies of social and economic inequality remain to be addressed in the new century. A foreword by Jerry Dávila highlights the volumes contributions for a new, English-reading audience."--Book cover

Studies in political economy of development by Ignacy Sachs( Book )

This book develops the theme that the crisis of development is also a crisis of development theory. The author shows that economic growth alone, however rapid, cannot solve social problems nor banish misery and unemployment
Development and planning by Ignacy Sachs( Book )

19 editions published between 1984 and 1988 in 3 languages and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The aim of this collection is to challenge a rigid, technocratic, economistic view of development planning and at the same time, more than ever, to claim a central role for a renovated and committed form of planning in the formulation of anti-crisis strategies. The failure of the planned economy in Eastern Europe and of pseudo-planning in the Third World cannot be used as a contrario argument in favour of the free enterprise economy.The texts in this book are linked by the creation of a conceptual framework that can be used to analyse crises, signpost the developer's and planner's realm of thought and action, and above all shore up a constantly faltering social imagination." From preface
Transitions to sustainability by François Mancebo( )

14 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book calls for the conditions of transition to sustainability: How to take into consideration new global phenomena such as and of the dimension of climate change, the depletion of natural resources, financial crises, demographic dynamics, global urbanization, migrations and mobility, while bearing in mind short-term or local place-based issues, such as social justice or quality of life? Meeting this challenge requires an inclusive approach of sustainability. It is a matter of designing a new social contract: Sustainability requires more than developing the right markets, institutions and metrics, it requires social momentum. To do so, many issues need a clear and complete answer: How to link social justice with sustainability policies? What governance tools to do so? What linkage between one decision-making level and the other? These are major issues to design sound transitions to sustainability

Brazilian perspectives on sustainable development of the Amazon region( Book )

12 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Amazon region has received considerable worldwide attention in recent years, from several aspects - the home that it provides to indigenous peoples; its role in mediating regional and global climates; the integrity of its ecological systems following disturbance and transformation; the biological and cultural diversity that it supports; and so on. Very often, the reports and commentaries come from outside the countries and peoples of the region, while much of the thinking about Amazonia from within is not widely known or accessible. It is within such a perspective that the present volume has been conceived and has taken form. The volume is concerned with Amazonian ecology, resource use and development, as perceived by researchers, scholars and resource managers from Brazil or who have for a long period lived and worked there. The volume comprises thirteen chapters which, as an ensemble, provide multiple insights on Amazonia - climate and hydrology, urbanization processes, biological and ecological diversity, forests and agroforestry, rehabilitation of degraded land and water areas, extractive reserves and extractivism, fisheries and aquaculture, mining, agriculture, resource management and development planning

Les Phénomènes de "frontière" dans les pays tropicaux : table ronde organisée en l'honneur de Pierre Monbeig, Paris by Elizabeth Allen( )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in French and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les frontières pionnières sont un thème central dans les recherches du célèbre géographe français Pierre Monbeig. À l'occasion du colloque Les Phénomènes de "frontière" dans les pays tropicaux, tenu du 12 au 15 décembre 1979, plus de quarante intervenants ou auteurs de communication - dont notamment Claude Bataillon - ont rendu hommage à ce spécialiste de l'Amérique du Sud. Cette rencontre est le résultat de recherches menées au cours des années 1970, dont résultent les sujets comme le développement des frontières pionnières, ou encore les politiques d'État liées aux opérations industrielles. L'un des problèmes majeurs soulevé ici est la destruction de l'environnement, due à la constante expansion de l'agriculture qui menace les écosystèmes d'Amérique latine. Les évolutions technologiques sont ici vues comme mettant en péril le monde du travail, qui a alors moins besoin de main-d'œuvre qu'auparavant pour une plus grande production. Les membres de ce colloque prouvent que le sujet des phénomènes de frontières est encore d'actualité, et démontrent que les fronts pionniers sont dans une recherche constante de ressources non utilisées, cherchant sans cesse à se développer au dépend de certains écosystèmes. Il n'est pas inutile de rappeler que l'Amazonie est l'une des dernières régions encore sauvage, mais elle disparaît peu à peu sous l'avancée inexorable des frontières pionnières
