Population and development : the demographic transition by Tim Dyson( )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The demographic transition and its related effects of population growth, fertility decline and ageing populations are fraught with problems and controversy. When discussed in relation to the global south and the modern project of development, the questions and answers become more problematic. "Population and Development" expertly guides the reader through the demographic transition's origins in the Enlightenment and Europe, through to the rest of the world. While the phenomenon continues to cause unsustainable population growth with disastrous economic and environmental implications, the author examines how its processes have underlain previous periods of sustained economic growth; helped to liberate women from the domestic domain; and contributed greatly to the rise of modern democracy. This accessible and expert analysis will enable any student or expert in development studies to understand complex and vital demographic theory
Consuming space : placing consumption in perspective by M. R Redclift( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Emerging from a series of seminars on 'Cultures of Consumption' which encouraged a robust interdisciplinary debate, this volume focuses on the temporal and spatial dimensions of consumption. The contributors specifically explore the changing dimensions of consumption as networking across temporal and transcultural contexts. In considering spaces and places of consumption, it explores how these are delineated and scaled over time, and how the politics of scale play out over the changing networked relationships of local, national, transnational and globalized consumption spaces. In these spatial processes, the role of 'place' can become both fixed and malleable. In some cases, 'placed' commodities appear to act at a distance, acquiring value and 'reputation', while in other cases, commodity biographies of place are suppressed by mechanisms of displacement. A team of leading scholars from the USA, UK and Latin America analyze the different orderings of the 'power of space' in the historical, material and cultural constructions of consumption. In doing so, the book also questions the way the changing nature of consumption is dealt with theoretically and conceptually across space, place and time and the complicity of this analysis
Choice and public policy : the limits to welfare markets by Peter Taylor-Gooby( )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 740 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public policies increasingly emphasize active consumerism, entrepreneurship on the part of service providers and professionals, privatisation and an expanded role for markets. Choice and Public Policy draws on research by economists, psychologists, sociologists and public policy experts. The research demonstrates that the traditional rational choice model of economic behaviour is unsatisfactory in providing accounts of the way people choose in relation to work, saving, spending, investment and social welfare. It also shows that the public policies of active consumerism, public sector entrepreneurship and privatisation based on this approach are seriously flawed

Development issues in global governance : public-private partnerships and market multilateralism by Benedicte Bull( )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In order to address key world issues and problems such as health, education, labour rights and water, multilateral organizations, specifically the United Nations organizations and the World Bank, are increasingly working with private actors, including for-profit companies and corporations; business organizations and private foundations. Critics have claimed that increased corporate involvement threatens the legtimacy of multilateral organisations and this book assesses this claim, while providing a comprehensive cross-sector study of public-private partnerships (PPP) and detailed case studies."--BOOK JACKET

Valuing climate change : the economics of the greenhouse by Samuel Fankhauser( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and French and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Within only a few years, global warming has emerged from scientific speculation into an environmental threat of worldwide concern. Yet the scientific community remains uncertain as to the long-term trends and effects of climate change, and this uncertainty has been seized on as justification for inaction by an international community reluctant to bear the costs of policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Valuing Climate Change presents concrete, economic evidence of the need for action. Fankhauser assesses the costs of a doubling of GHG emissions to be a significant percentage of gross worl

Democratisation, governance, and regionalism in east and southeast Asia : a comparative study by Ian Marsh( )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new collection of essays compares the development of central institutions of governance in the emerging democracies of East and South East Asia. The seven key countries covered are: Taiwan, Korea, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines. Save for Singapore and Malaysia, all have democratized over the past decade. Because of its constitutive implications for citizen identities, democratisation is arguably of even greater potential significance than the economic take-off that preceded it. But there are distinctive features that give the experience of these seven states especial relevance. First, unlike analogous western patterns, democratic transitions in Asia have been top-down in character. Second, the implementation of basic democratic forms was highly compressed in time. Third there were (and are), in most countries, no major ideological or programmatic cleavages. Thus the bases around which contending political forces might organise are not immediately clear. This may affect the outlook for partisanship and mobilisation. There has been no synoptic, comparative study of these developments on a region-wide scale. This book fills the gap extremely well
