1 Agriculture, Food Security, Poverty and Environment: Essays on Post-reform India

C.H. Hanumantha Rao

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2005, 0-19-567195-3 / 9780195671957, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
This book is the outcome of explorations over the last decade into an economic reform package for India which reconciles economic efficiency with social equity. It examines economic performance and policies in interrelated areas including the agricultural sector, food security, rural poverty, and sustainable rural development in India and suggests an agenda for further reform. In drawing out a comparative perspective between post-reform India and East Asia, Hanumantha Rao attributes the extraordinary high GDP growth rate in agriculture, speedier demographic transition and the rapid pace of poverty reduction achieved by East and Southeast Asia to not just an open and market-driven economy, but to the ability of the State to implement radical land reform, infrastructure, and human resource development in the pre-reform period. Many of the shortfalls in achieving the objectives of growth with social justice are due to the failure to take account of these initial conditions. That India did much less in all these respects is seen as an important reason for its slower progress even after the initiation of reforms. The author suggests the following measures as essential for sustaining reform: stepping up agricultural growth to sustain overall growth rate in GDP removing restrictions on domestic trade public investment in basic infrastructure such as roads, irrigation, marketing, power, research, and extension expanding institutional credit to meet farmer's requirements This collection, showcasing the work of one of the foremost scholars in the discipline, is essential for students and researchers of agricultural and development economics, environment, and international trade. It will be a valuable guide for policymakers, activists, as well as for agricultural and trade analysts. Printed Pages: 356. 014001

2 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, 5 Vols.

Peter Drysadale and Takashi Terada (eds)

Routledge, London, UK, 2007, 0415310989 / 9780415310987, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
The Asia Pacific Economic Co-operation (APEC) forum was established as a regional grouping in 1989 to deal with the issues arising from growing regional interdependence. Its stated aim is to build ‘a prosperous Asia-Pacific through free and open trade and investment?and it now has twenty-one member economies, including China, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Chinese Taipei, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Russia, Canada, the USA, Mexico, Peru and Chile. The APEC Summit of Leaders and Ministers from around the region is the major dialogue on economic and political affairs across the Pacific each year. But APEC continues to evolve in a bid to keep pace with the rise of East Asian economic and political power, first around the emergence of Japan as a great industrial nation, later with the rise of the other East Asian economies, the remarkable growth of China and, more recently, the emergence of India. This new Major Work from Routledge is a five-volume collection which covers in depth the origins and history of APEC, its achievements and the impact it has had—and continues to have—on international relations and economic cooperation in general. It provides the information, analysis and interpretation that are essential to thinking about the economic and political framework within which these unprecedented changes in the structure of the world economy might be managed more or less successfully. Volume I: APEC: Its Origins; Volume II: APEC: Economic and Political Rationale; Volume III: APEC: Foundations and Evolution; Volume IV: APEC and East Asian Arrangements; Volume V: APEC: Its Record and Achievements.

Professor David E. Hojman, University of Liverpool, UK 'In fewer than 300 pages Dr Siggel offers us a comprehensive and superbly written treatment of development micro and open macroeconomics from a policy perspective. Carefully built numerical examples and problems, mostly drawn from the author's first-hand field experience, show the reader the relevance of sound theory as well as both the potential and limitations of the analytical tools used by practitioners.'

6 Industrial Relations: Towards a Theory of Negotiated Connectedness

Jerome Joseph

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2004, 0-7619-9839-X / 9780761998396, First Edition, Cloth, New, New, 5.5" x 8.5" 
This book examines industrial relations in a liberalizing, deregulated and global environment through the prism of connectedness. The author reinterprets industrial relations and offers connectedness as an alternative definition to the more conventional understanding of industrial relations. By doing so he makes us realize that connectedness has always been a part of industrial relations though buried and forgotten under the issues of labour market structures, trade unions, labour law and employment trends. This futuristic book calls for radically rethinking industrial relations from a perspective which is independent of any single stakeholder worldview. Printed Pages: 308. 001425

In the past several decades there has been a significant increase in our knowledge of the economic history of the United States. This has come about in part because of the development in economic history, most particularly with the emergence of the statistical and analytical contributions of the new economic history, and in part because of related developments in social, labor, and political history that have important implications for the understanding of economic change. The Cambridge Economic History of the United States has been designed to take full account of new knowledge in the subject, while at the same time offering a comprehensive survey of the history of economic activity and economic change in the United States, and in those regions whose economies have at certain times been closely allied to that of the United States: Canada and the Caribbean.

10 The Roaring Nineties: Why We're Paying the Price for the Greediest Decade in History

Joseph Stiglitz

Penguin, New Delhi, India, 2004, 0141014318 / 9780141014319, First Edition, Paperback, New, New, 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
'A searing critique of Dubyanomics ... The Nobel laureate who took on the IMF is now turning his guns on the American President. Stiglitz knows when to pick a fight' - Observer His previous book revealed the shocking truth about globalization. Now, Joseph Stiglitz blows the whistle on the devastation wrought by the free market mantra in the nineties ?and shows how Bush is ignoring the lessons from what happened. This is the explosive story of how capitalism US-style got its comeuppance: how excessive deregulation, government pandering to big business and exorbitant CEO salaries all fed the bubble that burst so dramatically amid corporate scandal and anti-globalization protest. As Chief Economic Advisor to the President at the time, Stiglitz exposes the inside story of what went wrong, but also reveals how Bush’s administration is now making things worse ?much worse ?for the economy, the US and the rest of the world. Stiglitz takes us one step further, showing how a more balanced approach to the market and government can lead not only to a better economy, but a better society. Printed Pages: 432. 002932

Traditional History in the Economy of Colonial India (The New Cambridge History of India), Tirthankar Roy
12 Traditional History in the Economy of Colonial India (The New Cambridge History of India)

Tirthankar Roy

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 1999, 0-521-65012-7 / 9780521650120, Hard Cover, New, New, 
The majority of workers in South Asia are employed in industries that rely on manual labour and craft skills. Some of these industries have existed for centuries and survived great changes in consumption and technology over the last 150 years. In earlier studies, historians of the region focused on mechanized rather than craft industries, arguing that traditional manufacturing was destroyed or devitalized during the colonial period, and that ‘modern?industry is substantially different. Exploring new material from research into five traditional industries, Tirthankar Roy’s book contests these notions, demonstrating that while traditional industry did evolve during the Industrial Revolution, these transformations had a positive rather than destructive effect on manufacturing generally. In fact, the book suggests, the major industries in post-independence India were shaped by such transformations. Tirthankar Roy’s book offers new and penetrating insights into India’s economic and social history. Printed Pages: 264 with 10 half-tones, 10 tables and 4 maps. 008662
