ISBN : 9780972326704.
294.3928 IKE 135763
This introduction to Nichiren Buddhism explores the
philosophical intricacies of life and reveals the wonder
inherent in the phases of birth, aging, and death. Core
concepts of Nichiren Buddhism, such as the ten worlds and
the nine consciousnesses, illustrate the profundity of
human existence. This book provides Buddhists with the
tools they need to fully appreciate the connectedness of
all beings and to revolutionise their spiritual lives
based on this insight. Also explored are how suffering
can be transformed to contribute to personal fulfilment
and the well-being of others and how modern scientific
research accords with ancient Buddhist views. Ultimately,
this is both a work of popular philosophy and a book of
compelling, compassionate inspiration for Buddhists and
non-Buddhists alike that fosters a greater understanding
of Nichiren Buddhism.

Realism and Social Science offers the reader an
authoritative and compelling guide to critical realism
and its implications for social theory and for the
practice of social science. It offers an alternative both
to approaches which are overly confident about the
possibility of a successful social science and those
which are defeatist about any possibility of progress in
understanding the social world. Written by one of the
leading social theorists in the field, it demonstrates
the virtues of critical realism for theory and empirical
research in social science, and provides a critical
engagement with leading non-realist approaches.

ISBN : 9781845117535.
333.912 BRI 135743
In the last decade, water resources planners have
frequently signaled an impending water crisis. The
message is that the world is running out of water and
that only by careful planning and the adoption of
integrated water resources management can catastrophe be
avoided. Stephen Brichieri-Colombi challenges these
perceptions. He maintains that the crisis is one of
resource management rather than availability: it arises
because water resource planners advocate exploitation of
rivers without due regard to social, environmental and
geopolitical consequences. The author advances a new
paradigm - water in the national economy - which will
enable developing countries to meet future food and water
demands without increasing abstraction from rivers and
consequential riparian conflict. This is a powerful re-
appraisal of the development of global water resources.

Many African countries are increasingly interested in
learning from China-s experiences in achieving effective
agricultural development. The Chinese government and
academic community are also keen to share experiences and
lessons with Africa. The book highlights experiences and
lessons from China and, in particular, analyzes why
Africa has not yet been able to emulate China-s
agricultural development trajectory. It compares the
similarities and discrepancies in conditions, processes,
and outcomes between China and Africa from the
perspectives of investment, science and technology,
policies and international development aid. Based on this
it explores which experiences and lessons from China-s
agriculture development can be shared with African
countries in order to contribute to the sustainable
improvement and transformation of African agriculture.

This book is David Hurst’s innovative integration of
management practice and theory, using a systems
perspective and analogies drawn from nature to illustrate
groundbreaking ideas and their practical application.
Hurst-s objective is to help readers make meaning from
their own management experience and education, and to
encourage improvement in their practical judgment and
wisdom. His approach takes an expansive view of
organizations, connecting their development to
humankind-s evolutionary heritage and cultural history.
It locates the origins of organizations in communities of
trust and follows their development and maturation. He
also crucially tracks the decline of organizations as
they age and shows how their strengths become weaknesses
in changing circumstances. Hurst-s core argument is that
the human mind is rational in an ecological, rather than
a logical, sense.
