1 Asian Irrigation in Transition: Responding to Challenges

Ganesg P. Shivakoti, Douglas L. Vermillon, Wai-fung Lam, Elinor Ostrom, Ujjwal Pradhan, and Robert Yoder (eds)

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2005, 0761933506 / 9780761933502, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 5.5 x 8.5 Inches 
There is today a crucial need to revamp the management and governance of water systems in Asia in order to cater to the increasing demands of a growing group of users with diverse needs—urban settlements, industry, food producers and environmental needs. Written by a mix of international observers and practitioners, these essays cover a wide range of issues that are involved in this endeavor. Based on actual fieldwork in various Asian countries, the contributors collectively address three major themes: - The response to the competition for resources including groundwater and aquifers, multiple water use, water reclamation, and watershed and basin management. - The emergence of new partnerships and institutional reforms, such as the changing role of governments, participatory approaches, new accountability mechanisms and improving the infrastructure. - The economic productivity of irrigated agriculture through water users` associations, demand-oriented and pro-poor irrigation services, and agribusiness. Drawing vital lessons from the Asian experience, this important volume will greatly assist in the design of efficient and equitable water management systems as well as serve to outline an agenda for future research for practitioners and policymakers.

This book comprehensively analyses urbanization trends in India using, for the first time, the 2001 Census data. It looks at definitional problems in the identification of urban settlements for comparative analysis. The realistic quantification of migration, its share of urban growth in large cities, the role of small and medium towns, and growth of large urban agglomerations are also considered. Covering 17 major states across India the study takes into account regional dimensions--both at the state- and district- level as well as urban population growth across states. Micro-level perspectives are included by bringing in district-level analysis of two developed states--Maharashtra and Punjab, and two relatively backward states--Rajasthan and Bihar. The study analyses: the extent, patterns, and trends as well as the socioeconomic and spatial characteristics of urbanization interdependencies between urbanization and available infrastructural facilities trends o f rural-urban migration and its relationship with employment situation globalization and lopsided urban growth Professional urban planners, state urban development authorities, as well as national and international donor agencies will benefit from this well researched study.

11 Rights, Deprivation and Disparity: Essays in Concepts and Measurement

S. Subramanian

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2006, 0-19-567643-2 / 9780195676433, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 14 x 22 Cm 
Welfare economics, social choice theory, distributional analysis, and poverty assessments are all-important ingredients of problems in concepts and measurement. These problems, in turn, have a bearing on the normative evaluation and critical description of development issues and policy intervention. As such, they constitute an important part of the normal discourse and activity of all involved citizens of a country. The issues under consideration in this book are therefore too important to be left entirely, or even in large measure, to the mercies of the ‘specialist? The role of the latter is perhaps best confined to the endeavour of elucidating the analytical bases of such notions as freedom, liberty, inequality, and deprivation which all of us habitually think and talk about. This book, which is a collection of work done on these themes over a period of two decades, is an attempt at such elucidation. The underlying effort has been to deal with the salient conceptual issues informing the book’s concerns in direct and straightforward way. Printed Pages: 312. 015688

The Geopolitics of Globalization: The Consequences for Development, Baldev Raj Nayar
12 The Geopolitics of Globalization: The Consequences for Development

Baldev Raj Nayar

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2005, 019-567202-X / 9780195672022, First Edition, Hardbound, New, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Baldev Raj Nayar has long been an insightful observer of comparative and international politics. In this book he fixes his gaze on globalization, and presents a political thesis to explain what is widely viewed as a primarily economic phenomenon. He argues, first of all, that the recent round of globalization is very diferent from the economic integration seen earlier in world history. Second, and more critically, he contends that geopolitics has been a driving force in the way globalization has evolved. Like all his arguments before, this new argument is worthy of careful attention. -- Ashutosh Varshney, University of Michigan For policymakers, scholars, and the general public in any developing country, understanding in the context of globalization is of elemental importance today. However, this requires a prior comprehension of the nature, causes, and consequences of globalization. The key underlying concern in this volume is the lesson that the evolution and contemporary structuring of globalization holds for developing countries. Cast within the overall conceptual framework of international relations theory, it explores how the process of globalization still remains 'truncated'--basically confined to the 'triad' of the US, Europe, and Japan. For Baldev Raj Nayar, the explanation for both the advance of contemporary globalization and its 'truncated' nature lies in geopolitics. Indeed, the volume is distinctive for its underlining the central role that geopolitics has played in the contemporary structuring of globalization, focusing specially on the US as the hegemonic power along with its European allies--the 'regime makers' in the modern-day international system. The book operates on a vast theoretical and empirical canvas. It informs readers on the nature of globalization and the role of markets and geopolitics. It then applies its finds to the understanding of developmental success in the original 'Asian tigers', the Southeast Asian nations, and China. Its treatment of India and Pakistan is noteworthy for its illumination of the contrast between the two countries in the interaction of geopolitics and economic policy. Printed Pages: 311. 009582
