A provocative look at what has worked and what hasn't in East Asian economics. Until the catastrophic economic crisis of the late 1990s, East Asia was perceived as a monolithic success story. But heady economic growth rates masked the most divided continent in the world one half the most extraordinary developmental success story ever seen, the other half a paper tiger. Joe Studwell explores how policies ridiculed by economists created titans in Japan, Korea and Taiwan, and are now behind the rise of China, while the best advice the West could offer sold its allies in south-east Asia down the e...

Coalition Politics and Hindu Nationalism

Price: $9.95

Publisher: London, UK, Routledge:

Edition: First Edition

Seller ID: 027090

ISBN: 0415359813

Condition: New


Religious influence in contemporary politics offers a fertile ground for political-sociological analysis, especially in societies where religion is a very important source of collective identity. In South Asian societies religion can, and often has, provided legitimacy to both governments and those who oppose them. This book examines the emergence of the BJP and the ways in which the Hindu nationalist agenda has been affected by the constraints of being a dominant member of a coalition government. The collected authors take stock of the party's first full term in power, presiding over the dive... View more info

Taking Social Development Seriously: The Experience of Sri Lanka

Publisher: New Delhi, India, Sage Publications: 2010

Edition: First Edition

Seller ID: 033360

ISBN: 813210465X

This book presents a historical and analytical overview of social development in Sri Lanka within a social policy conceptual framework. The author identifies three distinct phases of development of social policy in the country—that of the early, late and post colonial state. Further, he shows how Sri Lankan social development has since been reframed by a combination of neo-liberalism and a protracted civil war. This shift from the country’s unique social welfare structure to one marked by warfare is examined in the context of the impact of a new `welfare regime` on its society. Printed Pag...

Contentious Politics and Democratization in Nepal

After the restoration of democracy in 1990, Nepal witnessed collective political struggles—identity and gender movements, public protests and strikes, and the Maoist rebellion.This volume examines the causes, consequences and effectiveness of such contentious politics, and their relationship to democratization. Contradicting the popular thesis that contentious politics generally promotes democratization, this topical book shows that some forms of contentious politics can hinder it, even as other forms strengthen democracy. It also suggests that the nature of activities—whether they are co... View more info

She focuses not only her life story but also about what she believes in which is Education for girls and women and how that can change the world. The book is ab... View more info

Nagarjuna is one of the finest philosophers who ever lived. This second century Buddhist philosopher from south India is known for his criticism on speculative theories and viewpoints. But his name is better known for introducing the idea of emptiness (sunyata), a philosophical concept that had hugely influenced the discourses of Eastern philosophy, religion, and culture for about 2000 years. Nagarjuna cleverly introduced emptiness (sunyata), into Buddhist discourses to explain its central philosophy: the philosophy of Middle Path. Through the negative mode of argumentation, he taught how we n... View more info
