In this book the author makes two arguments. First, both
Korea and the Philippines experienced significant
corruption throughout the post-independence era. Second,
political - not economic - considerations dominated
policy making in both countries. Focusing on the exchange
of favors for bribes between state and business, the
author argues that politics drove policy choices, that
bureaucrats were not autonomous from political
interference in setting policy, and that business and
political elites wrestled with each other over who would
reap the rents to be had. was far greater than the
conventional wisdom allows.

On 13 November 2015, Paris suffered the second wave of
brutal terrorist attacks in a year, leaving 130 dead and
many more seriously injured. In this short book, the
influential philosopher Alain Badiou argues that, while
these violent events are commonly portrayed as acts of
Islamic terrorism, in fact they attest to a much deeper
malaise, which is connected to triumph of global
capitalism and to new forms of imperialism that involve
the weakening of states, such that whole regions of the
world have been turned into ungovernable zones, run by
armed gangs, in which ordinary people are forced to live
the most precarious lives.

importance of education and know that it is the only way
to get rid of poverty. But due to lack of money they are
not able to send their children to private schools and
hence depend upon government schools for education. If

fulfill their dreams of doing something great. This book
provides an extensive as well as in-depth analysis of the

This book provides a meaningful assessment of the
liberalization experience of the 1990s and a critical
account of the structure and performance of India’s trade
and industrial sectors following the policy decisions
taken during that time. Drawing from theory, empirical
literature, case studies and econometric evaluations, the
chapters of this book provide an in-depth and wide-
ranging assessments of how firm, industry, product and
country characteristics interact to determine trade and
industrial performance. They study recent trends in
manufacturing productivity, regional inequality and
specialization in manufacturing output, structure and
performance of small-scale enterprises, and the export
performance of agricultural commodities to present a
tapestry of the Indian experience of liberalization. By
considering industries and products as the units of
analysis, this book sets the stage for further case
studies and econometric analysis using detailed firm- and
plant-level data. It will be valuable for students and
scholars of economics, commerce and development studies.

Why bother to praise mathematics when you claim, as Alain
Badiou does, that philosophy is first and foremost a
metaphysics of happiness, or else it s not worth an hour
of trouble? What possible relationship can there be
between mathematics and happiness? That is precisely the
issue at stake in this dialogue, which serves as a very
accessible introduction to what mathematics is and an
exploration of the crucial influence it has always
exerted on the greatest philosophers. Far from the
thankless, pointless exercises they are often thought to
be, mathematics and logic are indispensable guides to
ridding ourselves of dominant opinions and making
possible an access to truths, or to a human experience of
the utmost value. That is why mathematics may well be the
shortest path to the true life, which, when it exists, is
characterized by an incomparable happiness.

Among the few great statesman to emerge in Asia,
Jawaharlal Nehru played a decisive role in history of the

multifarious problems of reconstruction, progress and
prosperity of the country. How this big country was kept
united and progressing through the ideas and ideals of
Jawaharlal Nehru has been captured in the material
selected for this book.

Politics and culture are originally related in the city
of Calcutta. The period (1940s to 1950s), was chaotic and
turbulent, yet, this was also a time of significant
creativity in literature, art, films and music in the
city. This is an unusual feature of any city but is
interestingly characteristic of Calcutta. he
originality of the work lies in blending poetry with
historical writing, retaining the essence of both forms
against the backdrop of the tumultuous events of the
critical decades, as against the entire historical period
of a city. This historical method together with twenty-
one papers give the reader a sense of the pulse of this
complex city emerging creatively and chaotically from its
colonial past .
