Sovereign wealth funds and international political economy by Manda Shemirani( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the first time, Shemirani provides a systematic methodology for the study of Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWFs) over their life span and emphasizes the need for a paradigm shift in our approach towards the study of state capitalism. Applied in this book to the world's four largest SWFs - Government Pension Fund-Global of Norway, Abu Dhabi Investment Authority of the United Arab Emirates, Temasek of Singapore, and the National Wealth Fund of the Russian Federation, this methodology can also be applied to other funds or form a basis for further analytical studies of SWFs. In addition to its first hand approach, the book addresses concerns about the lack of transparency by offering insights into the functioning and investment strategies of the selected SWFs. Academics and students in international political economy, international finance and international business as well as financiers, business leaders, and policy makers, will find the subject and the approach of this book highly useful

Urban design futures by Malcolm Moor( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Urban Design Futures puts forward a series of provocative scenarios for the directions in which urban design could evolve. These scenarios take the form of a series of 'think-pieces' on different aspects of urban design by leading practitioners and theorists. Essays from an international group of authors review progress and explore emerging ideas. Should urban design anticipate the future rather than recreate the past? What are the new driving forces that will shape urban living and urban design in the future? This book explores new concepts and points the way towards a series of urban design paradigms for the twenty-first century."--Jacket

This lived experience is set against hard data so that we can truly understand the impact - good and bad - of economic restructuring on the broad Australian middle class.

The biggest estate on earth : how Aborigines made Australia by Bill Gammage( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Across Australia, early Europeans commented again and again that the land looked like a park. With extensive grassy patches and pathways, open woodlands and abundant wildlife, it evoked a country estate in England. Bill Gammage has discovered this was because Aboriginal people managed the land in a far more systematic and scientific fashion than we have ever realised. For over a decade he has examined written and visual records of the Australian landscape. He has uncovered an extraordinarily complex system of land management using fire, the life cycles of native plants, and the natural flow of water to ensure plentiful wildlife and plant foods throughout the year. We know Aboriginal people spent far less time and effort than Europeans in securing food and shelter. With details of land-management strategies from around Australia, this book rewrites the history of this continent, with huge implications for us today

Freedom, recognition and non-domination : a republican theory of (global) justice by Fabian Schuppert( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers an original account of a distinctly republican theory of social and global justice. The book starts by exploring the nature and value of Hegelian recognition theory. It shows the importance of that theory for grounding a normative account of free and autonomous agency. It is this normative account of free agency which provides the groundwork for a republican conception of social and global justice, based on the core-ideas of freedom as non-domination and autonomy as non-alienation. As the author argues, republicans should endorse a sufficientarian account of social justice, which focuses on the nature of social relationships and their effects on people's ability to act freely and realize their fundamental interests. On the global level, the book argues for the cosmopolitan extension of the republican principles of non-domination and non-alienation within a multi-level democratic system. In so doing, the book addresses a major gap in the existing literature, presenting an original theory of justice, which combines Hegelian recognition theory and republican ideas of freedom, and applying this hybrid theory to the global domain. Fabian Schuppert creates a grand synthesis uniting neo-republican insights on freedom with Hegelian recognition theory. The result is an account of agency that arises from the idea of non-domination whose aim it is to safeguard individual freedom. When combined with Hegelian recognition theory a social focus also emerges. This amalgam comments on many of the major disputes concerning global justice from a cosmopolitan perspective. Because of the broad scope and the many contemporary discussions engaged this book will be of keen interest to scholars as well as a welcome addition to the classroom
