Social capital : a multifaceted perspective by Partha Dasgupta( )

41 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 2,051 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Social capital initially derives from social theory, and from the broad idea that social relationships are resources that help people act effectively"--A definition by the late James Coleman, one of the first social scientists to use the term in the 1970s." "Social capital has since then quickly entered the common vernacular of our discussions about the connectedness of citizens to their community. It remains, however, a concept that is not easily defined. There lies the impetus for this book, which presents theoretical and empirical studies of social capital by a roster of leading sociologists, economists, and political scientists. It is an outgrowth of a workshop, held at the World Bank in April 1997, which was devoted to exploring the concept of social capital through a multidisciplinary forum."--Jacket
Historic cities and sacred sites : cultural roots for urban futures( )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 784 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report investigates the tolls that overpopulation and poverty often take on historic cities and sacred sites. More importantly, it demonstrates that taking care of humanity's cultural heritage can regenerate the self-esteem and self-identities of disempowered peoples and revive moribund economies. This report expands the dialogue on state-of-the-art preservation approaches based on actual cases set in a range of economic and social contexts. The 51 chapters of this volume are organized in 8 parts on specific themes. Each part is accompanied by an Editors' Note--an executive summary highlighting the key points contained in each chapter. Part 1 seeks the philosophical and spiritual origins of historic cities and sacred sites. Part 2 discusses the governance, planning, and management of cultural patrimony based on fresh policy and operational material from new empirical research and original conceptualizations. Case studies focus on cities in Brazil, the Middle East, the Netherlands, North Africa, North America, and Norway. Part 3 addresses the range of rescue strategies for built heritage at risk, which include reconstruction, transformation, and the adaptation of historic structures to new uses. Part 4 discusses the issue of urban and cultural heritage preservation during periods of economic transition. Part 5 analyzes processes and instruments to appraise heritage investments, the role of incentives, and strategies to attract private sector participation

Biotechnology in Africa : emergence, initiatives and future by Florence M Wambugu( )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Florence Wambugu and Daniel Kamanga of Africa Harvest Biotech Foundation International bring together expert African authorities to critique various biotechnology initiatives and project future developments in the field in Africa. For the first time, African voices from multidisciplinary fields as diverse as economics, agriculture, biotechnology, law, politics, and academia, demand to be allowed to set the continent's biotech development agenda. This book argues that there is a great future for biotechnology in Africa which sidesteps western interests that do not match those of the local populace. In these diverse chapters, Africa's political and scientific leaders demand a greater say in how research and development funds are allocated and spent. They argue that Africa's political leaders must see both clear benefits and have elbow-room to drive the change required. This is the way that African governments can employ workable policies, suitable biosafety legislation and regulation, and respond effectively to public-private partnerships. Wambugu and Kamanga show that biotechnology has the potential to improve food security and standard of living as well as mitigate the detrimental effects of climate change on the African continent

Saudis in transition : the challenges of a changing labor market by Ismail Sirageldin( Book )

9 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is based on a study that attempted to understand the main variables and processes in the shifting conditions of the labor market of Saudi Arabia during the late 1970s. This book does not attempt to provide a general survey of the labor market in Saudi Arabia. Nor does it claim to be a quantitative assessment of the dynamics of that market. The book instead tries to capture the essence of the labor market in transition, and attempts to identify the operative elements at both ends of the transition process: the pull of tradition and the push of modernity
