The lending policy of the World Bank in the 1970s : analysis and evaluation by Bettina S Hürni( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This pilot study - the first to analyze the World Bank's lending policy in the Second United Nations Development Decade - concentrates on the Bank's shift in emphasis from traditional infrastructure projects to new style projects, especially in the area of rural development, and on the resulting changes in lending criteria in the 1970s. Basing her conclusions on two years of independent research and access to confidential materials, Dr. Hurni evaluates the World Bank's work; gives a good overall view of current development problems - including implementation of the growth with equity strategy - and their possible solutions; shows the effects of the new development goals in borrower and creditor countries, as well as on the institutional decision-making process; and offers recommendations for improvement of the Bank's evaluation methodology and operational structures. She presents a clear picture of the positive and negative aspects of the World Bank as a multilateral investment model and shows its bridge-building function in the great North-South controversy

Metaphysics by Peter Van Inwagen( Book )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Accepting the traditional definition of metaphysics as the study of ultimate reality, Peter van Inwagen builds this strikingly original textbook around three crucial questions: What are the most general features of the world? Why does the world exist? And what is the nature and place of rational beings in the world?In the informal but precise style for which he is known, van Inwagen surveys the classical answers to these questions while teaching his readers through example how to think about them more clearly and deeply on their own. By the end of the book, he has introduced most of the perennial topics of metaphysics, including appearance and reality, identity and individuation, objectivity, necessary existence, mind and body, teleology, and freedom of the will. Engaging and provocative, but always fair and reasonable, Metaphysics provides both a lucid guide to the study of First Questions and a paradigm of philosophical exposition. It will immediately take its place at the forefront of leading contemporary texts on metaphysics
Islam and human rights : tradition and politics by Ann Elizabeth Mayer( Book )

2 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this revised and updated edition, Ann Elizabeth Mayer critically assesses various human rights schemes that employ Islamic formulas to dilute or eliminate the protections afforded by international human rights law. She discusses how these schemes reflect current debates in Muslim societies about how the Islamic legal heritage relates to international human rights law. Challenging stereotypes about a supposedly monolithic Islam inherently incompatible with human rights, Mayer discusses the political motives behind the selective use of elements of the Islamic tradition by conservative groups who oppose Muslim's aspirations to enjoy human rights."--Jacket
