This book introduces the idea that ethics are an
intrinsic dimension of any water policy, program, or
practice, and that understanding what ethics are being
acted out in water policies is fundamental to an
understanding of water resource management. The author
shows the benefits of exposing tacit values and
motivations and subjecting these to explicit public
scrutiny where the values themselves can be debated. The
aim of such a process is to create the proverbial -level
playing field-, where values favoring environmental
sustainability are considered in relation to values
favoring short-term exploitation for quick economic
stimulus or quick protection from water disasters. It
shows how new technologies, such as drip irrigation, such
as river basin organizations are neither "good" nor "bad"
in their own right, but can serve a range of interests
which are guided by ethics.

The Bhagavad Gita is universally regarded as one of the
world-s spiritual and literary masterpieces. The author
tells the story of this venerable and enduring book, from
its origins in ancient India to its reception today as a
spiritual classic that has been translated into more than
seventy-five languages.The Gita opens on the eve of a
mighty battle, when the warrior Arjuna is overwhelmed by
despair and refuses to fight. He turns to his charioteer,
Krishna, who counsels him on why he must. In the dialogue
that follows, Arjuna comes to realize that the true
battle is for his own soul. Davis highlights the place of
this legendary dialogue in classical Indian culture, and
then examines how it has lived on in diverse settings and
contexts. He looks at the medieval devotional traditions
surrounding the divine character of Krishna and traces
how the Gita traveled from India to the West.

This book provides a clear account of deconstruction, and
the different varieties of this approach at work inside
and outside the discipline of psychology. It describes
the challenge to underlying assumptions of -neutrality-
or -objectivity- within psychology that deconstruction
poses, and its implications for three key concepts:
humanism, interpretation and reflexivity. The chapters in
this book show how, via a process of -erasure-,
deconstructive approaches question fundamental
assumptions made about language and reality, the self and
the social world. By demonstrating the application of
deconstruction to different areas of psychology, it also
seeks to provide a -social reconstruction- of

The main goal of this book is to put urbanization and its
challenges squarely on Africa-s development agenda.
Planned urbanization can improve living conditions for
the majority, help in the expansion of the middle class,
and create conditions for economic transformation.
However, many African cities have developed haphazardly,
resulting in the decline of public services, in slum
proliferation, and increases in poverty. African cities
thrive on activities characterized by easy entry and low
productivity, generally referred to as the "informal
sector". This study argues that with careful policies and
planning, the situation can be changed.The challenge for
African policymakers is to ensure that urban development
is orderly and that the process is inclusive and
emphasizes the protection of the environment, hence green

In the past three decades, China has successfully
transformed itself from an extremely poor economy to the
world°s second largest economy. The country°s phenomenal
economic growth has been sustained primarily by its rapid
and continuous industrialisation. This book explores the
question of how far this industrial growth has been the
product of government policies. It discusses how
government policies and their priorities have developed
and evolved, examines how industrial policies are linked
to policies in other areas, such as trade, technology and
regional development, and assesses how new policy
initiatives are encouraging China°s increasing success in
new technology-intensive industries. It also demonstrates
how China°s industrial policies are linked to development
of industrial clusters and regions.

This book reviews the theoretical framework as well as
provides a historic context of impact of the United
States- complex trade agreements of the past 25 years.
The author analyzes the issues in the recent rounds of
GATT/WTO negotiations and in numerous US free trade
agreements and discusses how economists have approached
trade policy and how historical experience has affected
economic theory. He assesses the effect of trade deals on
the US economy, the role of foreign policy in trade
negotiations, how trade can affect the economies of
developing countries, and how environmental and labor
concerns affect trade agreements. Trade has been an
essential driver of global growth. The author shows how
trade policy has contributed to that growth and outlines
what must be done to ensure it can continue to promote
our national objectives.
