interrelations at local, national, and global scales have
intensified in historically unprecedented forms and

processes have generated parochial and vernacular
reactions. This book aims at developing an appropriate

This book acknowledges the role of agglomeration

in India. India requires agglomeration-augmenting,
congestion-mitigating and resource-generating cities as
engines of economic growth, including rural development.
The book provides a large number of practical examples
from India and abroad to enable policy-makers undertake
reforms in urban and regional planning, financing, and
governance to meet the challenges of urbanization in
India. It combines theory and practice to draw lessons
for an urban agenda for India and recognizes the central
role of cities in catalyzing growth and generating public

This book argues that U.S. leaders need to reevaluate all
housing policies and develop new ones that ensure that
all Americans have greater access to affordable housing
whether rented or owned. After describing homeownership-s
most common myths, the book shows why the financial
circumstances America’s financial underclass now face
make it impossible for them to benefit from homeownership
because they cannot afford to buy homes. The book then
exposes the risks of "home buying while brown or black"
by discussing U.S. policies that made it easier for
whites to buy homes easily and cheaply, but harder and
more costly for blacks and Latinos to do so. The book
argues that remaining traces of racial discrimination and
certain demographic features continue to make it harder
for blacks and Latinos to receive homeownership-s

337 BRU 143232
Economic diplomacy is changing. The multilateral
organizations that dominated the last half of the
twentieth century no longer monopolize economic affairs.
Instead, countries are resorting to more modest
-minilateral- strategies like trade alliances, informal
-soft law- agreements, and financial engineering to
manage the global economy. Like traditional modes of
economic statecraft, these tools are aimed at both
liberalizing and supervising international financial
policy in a world of diverse national interests. But
unlike before, they are specifically tailored to
navigating a post-American (and post-Western) world where
economic power is more diffuse than ever before. This
book explains how these strategies work and reveals how
this new diplomatic toolbox will reshape how countries do
business with one another for decades to come.

Since 2008, economic policymakers and researchers have

the crisis to a cat stuck in a tree, afraid to move. In
April 2013, the International Monetary Fund brought
together leading economists and economic policymakers to
discuss the slowly emerging contours of the macroeconomic

This book provides important insight into plans to

constitutes a catastrophic event, outlining both the
factors that can lead to catastrophes and the unique
logistical, planning, and response challenges posed by
them. It also examines why catastrophes must be approached
differently. If governments, public administrators, and
emergency management professionals are to succeed in
protecting our populations, there must be consensus,
decisiveness, and leadership in both the coordination and
response. The book explores how catastrophes can
dramatically affect populations and addresses new,
innovative, and fundamentally unique strategies
communities can institute to better prepare populations

This book shows how stories that might otherwise be seen
as part of mundane daily life are in fact essential to
the formation and maintenance of individual and group
identity. Analyzing the re-telling of certain key
stories, the author shows how the formation of "core"
stories and their multiple re-tellings and modifications
provide a means of formulating and promoting a cohesive
group identity -- which in turn shapes the stories and
identities of the individuals within the collective. She
also looks at silences, and how stories not told also
convey their version of the past.

the idea of leadership as a distributed process between
lots of agents in an organization. In doing so he
provides a new framework which readers can use to
understand and implement this -distributed- type of
leadership. Chapters include vignettes and case studies
to support readers- understanding of ideas, and
pedagogical features emphasize core learning points.

questions that pertain to various film practices. Diverse
philosophical traditions provide useful frameworks to
discuss spectators- affective and emotional engagement
with film, which can function as a moral ground for one-s
connection to others and to the world outside the self.
These traditions encompass theories of emotion,

The New Middle East is one of the first comprehensive
books written by prominent scholars of the region and of
comparative politics to critically examine the Arab
popular uprisings of 2011-2012. While these uprisings
prompted a number of cursory publications, this volume
contains meticulous and thoughtful reflections on the
causes, drivers and effects of these seminal events on
the internal, regional and international politics of the
Middle East and North Africa. Although specific
conditions in individual countries that have experienced
large-scale popular mobilizations are investigated, they
are neither treated in isolation nor separated from
broader developments in the region. Instead, the authors
highlight connections between individual case studies and
systemic conditions throughout the Arab arena. These include
the crisis of political authority, the failure of economic

This book focuses on one of the most fascinating periods
in the life of this nation, the decade of the 1970s. This
was when Indira found herself engaging with the true
meaning of democracy. Later, between 1975 and 1977,
during the Emergency, she found herself grappling with
the limits of personal expression. Finally, in 1977,
India saw the emergence of the politics of coalition,
with the Janata Party an amalgam of Indian parties
opposed to the Emergency, comprising the Congress (O),
the Bharatiya Lok Dal, the Jana Sangh and the Socialists,
coming to power. This was the decade when Pranab
Mukherjee committed himself to the role of a political
activist. As one of the keenest observers of and
participants in this dramatic decade, Pranab Mukherjee-s
insights are invaluable. Drawing from personal diary
extracts, conversations with key players of the 1970s,
and vital secondary literature, Pranab Mukherjee presents
an exceptional portrait of a complex nation.

This book offers a true account of the experiences of a
former Indian fighter pilot, who was taken prisoner
during the 1971 Indo-Pak/Bangladesh Liberation War. While
depicting the intrepid life of fighter pilots in active
combat, the book also has an introspective side where it
portrays the soldier-s reactions to the terrifying
realities of war. The experiences of prisoners of war are
finely drawn, as we share the emotions of war-death,
alienation, loneliness and grief. Through heart-warming
anecdotes and conversational passages of interactions
with Pakistani interrogators, attendants, jailors and
civilians, the book juxtaposes the metaphor of physical
battles in the sky with the conflict of minds between two
