This book presents a brand-new way of investigating these
questions and provides new tools for assessing the long-
term growth of societies. Using a groundbreaking
numerical index of social development that compares
societies in different times and places, award-winning
author Ian Morris sets forth a sweeping examination of
Eastern and Western development across 15,000 years since
the end of the last ice age. Morris reveals that for 90
percent of the time since the last ice age, the world-s
most advanced region has been at the western end of
Eurasia, but contrary to what many historians once
believed, there were roughly 1,200 years--from about 550
to 1750 CE--when an East Asian region was more advanced.

Attempts by governments and NGOs to provide modern
solutions to the management of local water resources, and
to alleviate the hazards of flooding, often create
unforeseen problems adversely affecting future water
resources and leading to increased vulnerability to
crises. The author-s outlines the need to develop an
integrative approach. Introducing the concept of hydro-
hazards cape he shows how diverse the social groups
affected by a hazard may view it differently, resulting
in a differing perception of the threat. Only by adopting
an approach that is attentive to the multiple values of
water in the communities affected, can one hope for any
measure of success. Examples from South Asia, Central
America, the Caucasus and the USA, illustrate how the
approach will help achieve long-term sustainability in a
future filled with climate change.

339 CHI 138330,v.1
This book represents a complete reinterpretation and
restructuring of Keynesian macroeconomics and a detailed
investigation of the disequilibrium adjustment processes
characterizing the financial, the goods and the labour
markets and their interaction. It questions in a radical
way the evolution of Keynesian macroeconomics after World
War II and focuses on the limitations of the traditional
Keynesian approach until it fell apart in the early
1970s, as well as the inadequacy of the new consensus in
macroeconomics that emerged from the Monetarist critique
of Keynesianism. With its focus on Keynesian propagation
mechanisms, the research in this book provides a unique
alternative to the black-box shock-absorber approaches
that dominate modern macroeconomics.

also exploring the effect of censorship on the music
scene in China. China with a Cut pays particular
attention to the dakou culture: so named after a cut
nicked into the edge to render them unsaleable, these
illegally imported Western CDs still play most of the
tracks. They also played a crucial role in the emergence
of the new music and youth culture. The author-s
impressive study demonstrates how the young Chinese cope
with the rapid economic and social changes in a period of
intense globalisation, and offers a unique insight into
the socio-cultural and political transformations of a
rising global power.

In the eighteenth century, Britain became a world
superpower through a series of sensational military
strikes. Traditionally, the Royal Navy has been seen as
Britains key weapon, but in Three Victories and a Defeat,
the author argues that Britains true strength lay with
the German aristocrats who ruled it at the time. The
House of Hanover superbly managed a complex series of
European alliances that enabled Britain to keep the
continental balance of power in check while dramatically
expanding her own empire. These alliances sustained the
nation through the War of the Spanish Succession, the War
of the Austrian Succession, and the Seven Years War. But
in 1776, Britain lost the American continent by
alienating her European allies.
