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

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Somalia is a failed state, representing a threat to itself, its neighbours and the wider world. In recent years, it has become notorious for the piracy off its coast and the rise of Islamic extremism, opening it up as a new 'southern front' in the war on terror. At least that is how it is inevitably portrayed by politicians and in the media. In Getting Somalia Wrong? Mary Harper presents the first comprehensive account of the chaos into which the country has descended and the United States' renewed involvement there. In doing so, Harper argues that viewing Somalia through the prism of al-Qaeda risks further destabilizing the country and the entire Horn of Africa, while also showing that though the country may be a failed state, it is far from being a failed society. In reality, alternative forms of business, justice, education and local politics have survived and even flourished. Provocative in its analysis, Harper shows that until the international community starts to 'get it right' the consequences will be devastating, not just for Somalia, but for the world."--Publisher's website
Race differences in intelligence by John C Loehlin( Book )

2 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 1,127 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.

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

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,104 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

School-age pregnancy and parenthood : biosocial dimensions by Beatrix A Hamburg( Book )

3 editions published between 1986 and 2017 in English and held by 791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This important work examines in detail and depth how, as a consequence of changing technologies, diet, patterns of reproduction, and work, relations between children and parents have altered.The editors and contributors hold that biosocial science is particularly relevant to research on human family systems and parenting behavior. The family is the universal social institution in which the care of children is based and the turf where cultural tradition, beliefs, and values are transmitted to the young as they fulfill their biological potential for growth, development and reproduction. The biosocial perspective takes into account the biological substratum and the social environment as critical co-determinants of behavior and pinpoints areas in which contemporary human parental behavior exhibits continuities with and departures from, patterns evident throughout history.This work crosses disciplinary lines without ignoring their relevance to the broader themes of the book. School age pregnancy and parenthood is a powerful anchor for the dissection of large scale issues. The contributors deal in turn with ethnic and historical experience, examine normative and ethical issues, and cast new light on methodological concerns. What the editors call culturally-defined responses to basic needs helps explain both dramatic improvements in this area, and how they expand the challenge of teen reproduction. Contributors emphasize new demands for training and education to research this growing phenomenon. The book contributes to humane concerns as well as the scientific imagination."--Provided by publisher
