This book demonstrates the importance of South Asia as a
region to deepening the study of civil wars and armed
conflicts and, simultaneously, illustrates how civil wars
open up questions of sovereignty, citizenship and state
contours. By engaging these broader theoretical debates,
in a field largely dominated by security studies and
comparative politics, it contributes to the study of
civil wars, political sociology, anthropology and
political theory. .

ISBN : 9780415731331.

This book integrates entrepreneurship and empowerment
into one central theme, drawing on research from both the
social sciences (innovation, entrepreneurship,
empowerment and activism) and the humanities
(participatory culture, user-generated designs, creative
networks). Enterprising Initiatives expands the
definition of entrepreneurship beyond a primarily
economic profit-seeking phenomenon to a broader
understanding of enterprising behavior based on an
individual-opportunity nexus. Beyond social
entrepreneurship, it explores a broad range of
individual, collective and cooperative citizen
initiatives under the umbrella of enterprising action.

A Knopf, 2014.
254p. , 21cm.
ISBN : 9780307961181.

The author mounts a comprehensive case against prevailing
mainstream economic thinking, illustrating how it has
damaged markets, infrastructure, and individual
livelihoods, causing hundreds of billions of dollars of
wasted investment, financial crisis after financial
crisis poor public education and public transportation,
gross inequality of income and wealth, and stagnating
wages, uncontrolled military spending, and a failed
healthcare system that delivers far less than it costs.
Using the Great Recession as his foremost case study, the
author shows how the decisions America should have made
before, during, and after the financial crisis were
suppressed by popular theory, and how the consequences
are still being felt here and around the globe.

This book takes a fresh and wide-ranging look at modern
theories of money. One of the book-s central concerns is
how money can be wrested from the domination and
mismanagement of banks and governments and restored to
its fundamental position as the "claim upon society"
described by Georg Simmel. But rather than advancing yet
another critique of the state-based monetary system, the
book draws out the utopian aspects of money and the ways
in which its transformation could in turn transform
society, politics, and economics. The book also
identifies the contributions of thinkers who have not
previously been thought of as monetary theorists-
including Nietzsche, Benjamin, Bataille, Deleuze and
Guattari, Baudrillard, Derrida, and Hardt and Negri.

338.954 BHA 143314
This book presents a collection of essays that challenge
the conventional wisdom of Indian market reforms,
examining the effects of neoliberal policies enacted by
the Indian government and exploding the myths that
surround them. In particular, the book questions the
perceived benefits of India’s reform policies in the
areas of growth, agriculture, industry and poverty
alleviation, and examines how the government s focus on
preventing a fiscal deficit caused a large-scale decline
in development expenditures, which in turn has had a
negative impact on the well-being of the poor. With its
rich and insightful analysis, the book bravely shines a
light on the true implications of India s neoliberal
governmental policies, and provides a revealing
indication of how policy reform since 1991 has, at times,
detrimentally affected the general populace of India.

This book highlights the neoliberalization of nature in
the development of green technologies, land use, dietary
habits, reproductive practices, consumption patterns,
design strategies, and media. The author dismisses the
notion that the free market can solve debilitating
environmental degradation and climate change as nothing
more than a political ghost emptied of its collective
aspirations. The author decries what she perceives as a
failure of the human imagination and an impoverishment of
political institutions, and she ruminates on the nature
of change and existence in the absence of a future.
