India / Saima Saeed.-- London: Routledge, 2013.
ISBN : 9780415812443.
070.1950954 SAE 138705
Highlighting the power and significance of contemporary
media, this book deconstructs news and news-making on
Indian television. In exploring the concepts of -sense-
making- and -meaning-generation-, it examines how news
and the dissemination of information and opinion
influence the public sphere, participatory democracy,
citizenship and civil society. Providing an original
interpretation of the paradigmatic shifts in news content
and newsroom practices, this book focuses on changing
ownership patterns, increasing -entertainmentalization-
of news and the resultant -developmental reportage
deficit-. At the same time, it confronts the uneasy and
critical consequences of commercialization and rising
sensationalism in news media.

20th century aesthetics : towards a theory of feeling /
Mario Perniola.-- London: Bloomsbury, 2013.
ISBN : 9781441118509.
111.85 PER 138845
Starting from four conceptual fields - life, form,
knowledge, action è the author identifies the lines of
aesthetic reflection that derive from them and elucidates
them with reference to major authors: from Dilthey to
Foucault (aesthetics of life), from Wolfflin to McLuhan
and Lyotard (aesthetics of form), from Croce to Goodman
(aesthetics and knowledge), from Dewey to Bloom
(aesthetics and action). There is also a fifth one that
touches on the sphere of affectivity and emotionality,
and which comes to aesthetics from thinkers like Freud,
Heidegger, Wittgenstein, Lacan, Derrida and Deleuze. The
book concludes with an extensive sixth chapter on
Japanese, Chinese, Indian, Islamic, Brazilian, South
Korean and South East Asian aesthetic thought and on the
present decline of Western aesthetic sensibility.

Macroeconomics is important for human development because
it determines levels of employment, the degree of social
protection and the public provision of services such as
healthcare or education. Human development has
implications and consequences for macroeconomics, for it
can mobilize or claim resources to enlarge or diminish
space for macroeconomic policies. The relationship
exists, and matters, not only in poor countries but also
in wealthy ones. Employment, even if neglected, provides
the critical link. This book shows that causation runs in
both directions and can be either positive or negative.
It reveals similarities and differences between
developing countries and industrialised countries. The
political context is significant everywhere as interests,
ideology and institutions influence economic policies in
both spheres to shape outcomes.

This book redirects critical focus from ruins as evidence

imperial power occupies the present. The author-s
introduction is a manifesto, a compelling call for
postcolonial studies to expand its analytical scope to
address the toxic but less perceptible corrosions and
violent accruals of colonial aftermaths, as well as their

This book combines the two most important typologies of
capitalist diversity. This is possible because all
countries with liberal market economies also have liberal
welfare states, all countries that coordinate their
economy either have a conservative or a social democratic
welfare state. Building on this, this book shows how Hall
and Soskice-s -Varieties of Capitalism- typology can be
combined with Esping-Andersen-s welfare regime typology.
Drawing on a large dataset of empirical indicators, this
book argues that similar historical cultural policy

332.67351 NOL 138854
In this book author probes behind the media rhetoric and
shows that the idea that China is buying the world is a
myth. Since the 1970s the global business revolution has
resulted in an unprecedented degree of industrial
concentration. Giant firms from high income countries
with leading technologies and brands have greatly
increased their investments in developing countries, with
China at the forefront. Multinational companies account
for over two-thirds of China-s high technology output and
over ninety percent of its high technology exports. China
has been unsuccessful so far in its efforts to nurture a
group of globally competitive firms with leading global
technologies and brands. Whether it will be successful in
the future is an open question. This balanced analysis
replaces rhetoric with evidence and argument.

these links to demonstrate their importance in policy
development. It pays special attention to innovative
management opportunities that improve local livelihoods
and alleviate poverty while enhancing ecosystem
protection. Based on eighteen studies in more than twenty
developing countries, the authors explore the role of
biodiversity-, marine-, forest-, water- and land-related
ecosystem services, making this an invaluable
contribution to research on the role of ecosystems in
supporting the livelihoods of the poor around the world.

learned Chinese scholars share their policy insights,

potential solutions to this underdevelopment and poverty.

The end of the Cold War has prompted many donors of
Official Development Assistance (ODA) to fundamentally
realign their global aid and trade relations. Despite
recent progress in untying ODA and a number of related
efforts to enhance the overall efficiency of
international cooperation with the poorest countries, it
remains unexplained why some OECD states have liberalised
their bilateral programmes to a considerable extent -
whereas others have continued to use foreign aid as a
means to promote domestic exports. The author widens the
scope of previous macro-analyses of -system-driven-
reorientations in tying practices in the wake of 1989/90,
