Race differences in intelligence by John C Loehlin( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1,190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is considered to provide a sober, balanced, and scholarly examination of the evidence that bears on the role of genetic and environmental factors in the determination of group differences in ability in the United States. The first chapter provides something of the background and recent history of the concern with racial-ethnic differences in intellectual performance in the U.S. The three chapters that complete the first part of the book are said to be intended to clarify some of the issues of definition and measurement surrounding three of the key concepts on which the controversy focuses--race, intelligence, and heritability. Following this, the four chapters in the second part of the book review the body of evidence relevant to the major empirical question of concern: What are the relative roles of the genes and the environment in accounting for differences in average performance of different U.S. racial-ethnic groups on tasks purporting to measure intellectual capacity? In the concluding section, whatever theoretical conclusions the authors state as appearing to be justified by the data and what purportedly appear to be--and not to be--legitimate implications of these conclusions for the formulation of social policy are set down.

Getting Somalia wrong? : faith, war and hope in a shattered state by Mary Harper( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Somalia is a failed state, notorious for piracy and the rise of Islamist extremism. At least that is how it is usually portrayed. Getting Somalia Wrong?, the first comprehensive account of the chaos engulfing much of the country, shows that this 'failed state' is far from being a failed society, as alternative forms of business, justice and local politics still flourish. As Mary Harper argues, until the international community starts to 'get it right', the consequences will be devastating

Africa's odious debts : how foreign loans and capital flight bled a continent by Léonce Ndikumana( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Africa's Odious Debts explodes the myth that Africa is a drain on the West's finances, revealing that the continent is actually a net creditor to the rest of the world. Of the money borrowed by African governments, more than half departs in the same year, with a significant portion of it winding up in private accounts at the very banks that provide the loans. Meanwhile, debt-servicing means less money for public health and other needs. Revealing the intimate links between foreign loans and capital flight, this is a vital book for anyone interested in Africa, its future and its relationship with the West."--Page 4 of cover
