Michael Foucault-s intellectual journeys carried him
across many different disciplines and often into
uncharted lands. His astonishing discoveries and claims
have been received with both unbridled enthusiasm and
vehement dissent. This collection of essays is the first
to bring together major criticisms of Foucault by other
writers with their own visions. From the perspective of
philosophy, the history of science, intellectual history,
sociology, political science, and literary criticism, the
distinguished contributors to this book discuss
forthrightly and fairly the difficulties and dangers of
Foucault-s explorations. Whether they attack or defend
him, his texts are closely examined and carefully

This lively book offers a fresh look at the history of
anthropological theory. Covering key concepts and
theorists, the author examines the historical context of
anthropological ideas and the contested nature of
anthropology itself. Anthropological ideas regarding
human diversity have always been rooted in the socio-
political conditions in which they arose and exploring
them in context helps students understand how and why
they evolved, and how theory relates to life and society.
Illustrated throughout, this engaging text moves away
from the dry recitation of past viewpoints in
anthropology and brings the subject matter to life.

Arguing that Arendt-s work is of continuing relevance to

understanding of political theory: what it is, it-s
purposes and limits and how it is best undertaken.
Buckler examines her most famous works- The Origins of
Totalitarianism, The Human Condition, and On Revolution-
alongside the less well-known and posthumously published
material. His study shows that Arendt-s unusual methods
reflect a consistent and definite conception of and
approach to political theory.

This book develops an original measure of freedom called
"Autonomy Freedom," consistent with J. S. Mill-s view of
autonomy, and applies it to issues in policy and
political design. The work pursues three aims. First, it
extends classical liberalism beyond exclusive reliance on
negative freedom so as to take autonomous behavior
explicitly into account. Second, it grounds on firm
conceptual foundations a new standard in the measurement
of freedom that can be fruitfully coupled with existing
gauges. Third, it shows empirically that individual
preferences for redistribution and cross-country
differences in welfare spending in Organisation for
Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries
are driven by the degree of "autonomy freedom" that

And how does this knowledge guide our economic life? The

the modern notion of the economy with a fresh look from

focuses on the emergence of formal economic analysis out
of a series of successive life-worlds, or concrete

This book constitutes an up-to-date treatment of Russia-s

when Vladimir Putin became the President of Russia. After
the slow decline and sudden collapse of the Soviet Union,
Russia embarked upon a multi-faceted change. This
included transition from central management to a market
economy, from one-party rule to democracy, from multi-
national empire to nation state, and from relative
autarchy to opening up to the European and global
communities. This book concentrates on economic change,
exploring how in spite of steep production decline,
widening welfare differentials and increasing social
uncertainty, the 1990s also created many of the

This book focuses on the forgotten people displaced by,
or living on the edge of, protected wildlife areas. It
moves beyond the grand -enchanting promise- of
conservation and development across frontiers, and
unfounded notions of TFCAs as integrated social-
ecological systems. Peoples- dependency on natural
resources t the specific combination of crop cultivation,
livestock keeping and natural resource harvesting
activities t varies enormously along the conservation
frontier, as does their reliance on resources on the
other side of the conservation boundary. Hence, the
studies in this book move from the dream of eco-tourism-
fuelled development supporting nature conservation and
people towards the local realities facing marginalized
people, living adjacent to protected areas in
environments often poorly suited to agriculture.

This book provides a problem-oriented overview of the
development of cooperatives over the last fifty years.
The worldwide study addresses the major challenges
cooperatives face, such as the organizational innovations
introduced in order to acquire necessary risk-capital and
implement growth-related strategies, the wave of
demutualization in developed nations and their ability to
construct an original consumer politics. The contributors
to this volume discuss the successes and failures of the
cooperatives and ask whether they are an outdated model
of enterprise. They document a wave of foundations of new
co-ops, new forms of collaboration between them, and a
growing trend toward globalization. Generally speaking
they show that this special kind of business will
doubtless continue to thrive and to maintain an important
position in a rapidly changing world economy.

This book looks at jobs as drivers of development, not as

not just formal wage employment. The Report provides a
framework that cuts across sectors and shows that the
best policy responses vary across countries, depending on
their levels of development, endowments, demography, and
institutions. Policy fundamentals matter in all cases, as
they enable a vibrant private sector, the source of most
jobs in the world. Labor policies can help as well, even
if they are less critical than is often assumed.
Development policies, from making smallholder farming
viable to fostering functional cities to engaging in
global markets, hold the key to success.

rights (IPR) and discusses the role of U.S. international
trade policy in enhancing IPR protection and enforcement
abroad. IPR are legal rights granted by governments to
encourage innovation and creative output by ensuring that
creators reap the benefits of their inventions or works,
and they may take the form of patents, trade secrets,
copyrights, trademarks or geographical indications. U.S.
industries that rely on IPR contribute significantly to
U.S. economic growth, employment, and trade with other

Today there are more than 2,500 bilateral investment
treaties (BITs) around the world. Most of these
investment protection treaties offer foreign investors a
direct cause of action to claim damages against host-
states before international arbitral tribunals. This
procedure, together with the requirement of compensation
in indirect expropriations and the fair and equitable
treatment standard, have transformed the way we think
about state liability in international law. We live in
the BIT generation, a world where BITs define the scope
and conditions according to which states are economically
accountable for the consequences of regulatory change and
administrative action. This book is an interdisciplinary
work, aimed at academics and practitioners, which focuses
on five key dimensions of BIT arbitration.

ISBN : 9781466511613.

The discipline of public administration draws
predominantly from political and organizational theory,
but also from other social and behavioral sciences,
philosophy, and even theology. This diversity results in
conflicting prescriptions for the "proper" administrative
role. So, how are those new to public administration to
know which ideas are "legitimate"? Rather than accepting
conventional arguments for administrative legitimacy
through delegated constitutional authority or expertise,
this book does not assume that any one approach to
professionalism is accepted by all scholars,
practitioners, citizens, or elected representatives.
Instead, it offers a framework for public administration
theory and practice that fully includes the citizen as a
political actor alongside elected representatives and

The book draws on three themes-market, politics, and
knowledge, roughly corresponding to three time scales-the
short, the medium, and the long run, respectively. These
frame the case studies of famines, earthquakes, and
storms covered in the book. These studies illustrate that
disasters become devastating events by impairing the
capacity of the state and civil society, they create
gainers and losers, and they destroy cooperation. Yet, as
the author points out, disasters have also enabled new
understandings of nature, state, and society, on the
basis of which useful new knowledge could grow.

summarized as seven treaty mechanisms categories
(specificity, uncertainty management, enforcement,
communications, flexibility, integrativeness, and scale)
and are hypothesized as important for shaping the
institutional resiliency of a treaty. Treaty design is
shown to have a relevant and important role in shaping

The creation and management of customer relationships is
fundamental to the practice of marketing. Marketers have
long maintained a keen interest in relationships: what
they are, why they are formed, what effects they have on
consumers and the marketplace, how they can be measured
and when and how they evolve and decline. While marketing
research has a long tradition in the study of business
relationships between manufacturers and suppliers and
buyers and sellers, attention in the past decade has
expanded to the relationships that form between consumers
and their brands. The aim of this book is to advance
knowledge about consumer-brand relationships by
disseminating new research that pushes beyond theory, to
applications and practical implications of brand
relationships that businesses can apply to their own

Redeeming Calcutta: A Portrait of India-s Imperial
Capital takes a fresh look at one of Asia-s great cities,
a metropolis of hope and decay that was once the Second
City of the British Empire after London. In this storied
colonial metropolis, Steve Raymer discovers a city of
high culture, leftist politics, and ambitions to reclaim
its past grandeur. With around 200 photographs, including
historic black-and-white images, the book takes us
through the streets, ghats, and corridors of Calcutta to
capture the imperial/historical city, the city in motion,
commerce and business, the practice of faith, the
country-s cultural hub, and politics. Raymer-s compelling
photographs, coupled with a timely and detailed text,
paint an inclusive and nuanced portrait of Calcutta, a
city long neglected by Western journalists except for its
poverty and sorrow.
