An introduction to ethnic conflict by Milton J Esman( Book )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides an introduction to ethnic conflict in the contemporary world. In ten concise chapters, Milton Esman explores the origins of ethnic pluralism and analyses the causes and manifestations of conflicts, both peaceful and violent, involving ethnic communities across the globe. He discusses the role of outsider-governments, diasporas, international agencies, and non-government organizations in provoking and managing ethnic conflicts, and appraises methods which have proven effective for their peaceful resolution. The book concludes with a look at the future of ethnic conflict and argues for the need to regulate such conflicts in an increasingly interdependent world." "Enriched by examples drawn from all continents, with end of chapter summaries and a glossary of key terms, this textbook is essential reading for all students of politics, international relations and political sociology."--BOOK JACKET
Can foreign aid moderate ethnic conflict? by Milton J Esman( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since World War II, a complex network has emerged of bilateral and multilateral agencies that manage economic assistance to low-income countries in the form of investment projects, policy advice, and technical assistance. Although each of these agencies has its distinctive personality, most of them have avoided facing up to the post-Cold War reality of burgeoning ethnic conflict. This reluctance to deal with the violent consequences of ethnic pluralism is often self-defeating, for such violence can destabilize the environment within which the agencies operate and thus undermine their efforts. The same reluctance can also blind agencies to the damage that the ill-considered provision of foreign aid can inflict on ethnic relations within aid-receiving nations. Some interventions may have neutral or even positive sum outcomes. This paper represents the author's conclusions from a conference held in October 1995 at Cornell University on the effects of development assistance on ethnic conflict

Paraprofessionals in rural development : issues in field-level staffing for agricultural projects by Milton J Esman( Book )

15 editions published between 1980 and 1983 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To establish a better knowledge base concerning the role of developing nation paraprofessionals in facilitating rural poor access to public services and in order to identify problems that arise in developing these patterns of service, an extensive literature search and compilation and analysis of over 50 health projects and 30 agricultural projects according to a set of 25 variables were performed. Paraprofessionals were denoted as those front-line workers with minimal education serving a semiautonomous role in the delivery of health and agricultural services. Results showed that considerably more research and attention have been focused on new levels of health personnel than on similar role capacities in agriculture services. Training materials, curricula, audio-visual aids, supervision procedures for the village health worker, plus extensive classification systems of health personnel have been developed. In contrast, this research activity represents the first effort to compile data on agriculture paraprofessionals. Findings also showed two major areas have been continually neglected-evaluation measures and community involvement. This seemed especially noteworthy since perhaps the major rationale for using low-level paraprofessionals involves their cost effectiveness as inexpensive personnel with a cultural affinity to the community which promotes participation in development. Further investigation and analysis will be required to confirm the hypothesis that the effectiveness, efficiency, and responsiveness of paraprofessionals will vary directly with their success in linking with participatory local organizations.

The emerging American garrison state by Milton J Esman( Book )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The United States Government is in the process of evolving, irreversibly, from a constitutional to a garrison state. The Emerging American Garrison State describes and analyzes the emergence of the American global empire and the role of the garrison state in protecting the threatened homeland and defending the declining imperium. Author Milton J. Esman analyzes the ideology, strategy, political economy, institutions, and culture that underlie the militarized garrison state and the rise of the autonomous presidency as its dominant institution. Contrasting the governing institutions of the garrison state with those of the previous constitutional order and describing the effects of the new regime on the several classes of American society, this book is required reading for students of American government and society."--Publisher's website
