This important book offers a comprehensive defense of
classical liberalism against contemporary challenges. It
sets out an analytical framework of -robust political
economy- that explores the economic and political
problems that arise from the phenomena of imperfect
knowledge and imperfect incentives. Using this framework,
the book defends the classical liberal focus on markets
and the minimal state from the critiques presented by
-market failure- economics and communitarian and
egalitarian variants of political theory. Mark Pennington
expertly applies the lessons learned from responding to
these challenges in the context of contemporary
discussions surrounding the welfare state, international
development, and environmental protection.

This book helps us understand the Chinese growth success,
the factors that made this possible, and the lessons that
can be distilled from this experience for other
developing countries. Arguing that traditional
explanations are inadequate, the author applies the
"development as transformation" thesis to provide answers
to a wide range of questions: Why has China grown so
rapidly over such a long time, and what are the country-s
prospects in the future? Will it keep growing? Will it in
the next few decades actually overtake the US as the
largest economy in the world, as some observers have been
forecasting, or will it implode as the many
contradictions in the economy and society grind it to a
halt? This is a book in that it is based on years of
close interaction with the Chinese leadership,
institutions, and society, as well as international
organizations in the development community.

A politics of patent law : crafting the participatory

x, 136p. 24cm.
ISBN : 9780415565172.
346.0486 MUR 136667
There has been much written on the impact of the
international treaties like the Trade Related Aspects on
Intellectual Property (TRIPS), which lament the failure
of patent systems to respond to the interests of a
diverse set of non-profit, public interest, and non-
corporate entities. But these studies have failed to
examine why such inclusion has proven to be particularly
difficult. This book examines how patent law can
accommodate what James Boyle terms a "politics" that is a
conceptual map of issues, a rough working model of costs
and benefits, and a functioning coalition-politics of
groups unified by common interest perceived in apparently
diverse situations. A Politics of Patent Law surveys
national statutory and case law, regional patent
treaties, and international treaties, to understand how
to craft a more "participatory bargain" in patent law.
The book provides a
substantive account about the ways in which the various
types of participatory mechanisms currently operate, and
examines how participatory mechanisms can be developed in
patent law, particularly within the regional and

It focuses on the interface between Asian forms of
nationhood and identity-movements. Dispensing with

South, South East and East Asia, gathered under the
rubric of an internally-differentiated model of Asian
