Politics in Pakistan has traditionally been understood in
the context of civil-military relationship. In May 2013,
for the first time in history, Pakistan saw an elected
government complete a full term in office and transfer
power through the ballot box to another civilian
government. In view of such an important development,
this book offers critical perspectives on Pakistan’s
current democratic transition and its implications for
national politics, security and foreign policy. It
critically analyses the emerging political trends in the
country, including their underlying sources, attributes,
constraints, and prospects of sustainability.

Building on the varieties of capitalism framework, this
book brings together the tools of institutional economics
with historical analyses of institutional evolution of
different kinds of property rights and legal systems,
protected by different kinds of state, giving rise to
distinct corporate governance structures. It constructs
institutional development histories across leading
liberal capitalisms in Britain and the United States,
compared with continental capitalisms in France and
Germany, and contemporary transitional capitalisms in
China and Tanzania.

The Future of Capitalism After the Financial Crisis: The
Varieties of Capitalism Debate in the Age of Austerity
contains thirteen world leading political economists
writing from within eight different countries who
critically analyze the current crisis tendencies of
capitalism both globally and in particular countries.
Given the likelihood of an increasingly crisis prone
future for capitalism, it is important not only to
rethink capitalism in its current manifestations or
varieties. It is also important to rethink research
methods and conceptual frameworks in preparation for
understanding an increasingly rocky future in which
capitalism itself could go the way of the many species
that in the past were endangered only to become extinct.

The world’s key resources of energy, food and water,
which are closely connected and interdependent on each
other, are coming under increasing pressure, as a result
of increasing population, development and climate change.
In the case of China, following its recent economic
surge, energy, food and water are already nearing the
point of shortage. This book considers how China is
working to avoid shortages of energy, food and water, and
the effect this is having internationally.

project management skills, risk aversion, valuation of
the asset and the difference in the economic, political
and diplomatic support received by the Chinese and Indian

Throughout the world, the Anglo-American model of
corporate governance tends to prevail ° but no two
countries are identical. Governance outcomes in
developing and emerging economies often deviate from what
theory predicts, due to a wide range of factors. Using
insights from New Institutional Economics, Corporate
Governance in Developing and Emerging Markets aims to
explain the different issues and cultural and legal
factors at play, and put forward an alternative
governance framework for these economies.

Many different companies can significantly contribute to
the integrated goals and targets of the United Nations-
sustainable development goals, such as poverty reduction,
by 2030. Poverty is not only about people living below
$1.25 per day, but more fundamentally, it is the lack of
capabilities and access for them to participate in
productive economic activities. If companies can
contribute to provide access and the necessary skills,
then individuals will have the capabilities to achieve
their aspirations, including earning a higher income.

The field of ecological economics, now just over twenty
years old, operates at the interface between the two
sciences of ecology and economics and is, by definition,
concerned with the interplay between two types of complex
living systems. It lies, therefore by definition, beyond
reductionism - that dominant scientific methodology which
dates back to Descartes. In this respect, the story of
how ecological economic methods have developed over time
is also one of how new scientific methods that lie beyond
reductionism have developed.

In the critically acclaimed first edition of A Social
Critique of Corporate Reporting, David Crowther examined
the perceived dialectic around traditional and
environmental reporting to show it to be a false
dialectic. Corporate reporting continues to change
rapidly to incorporate more detail and especially
environmental and social information. At the same time
the mechanism for reporting has changed and the internet
now enables more information to be provided to an ever
wider range of stakeholders and interest groups.

and firm performance, the book stresses the link between
CSA and a firm-s core managerial policies and practices,
reflecting the complexity and varied facets of CSA and
the numerous internal and external factors that influence
its outcomes. The book draws on the experiences of
various industrial sectors to reveal the importance of a
range of issues such as top management pay dispersion and
ownership structure, which may influence the firm°°°s
decision to engage in CSA. It also explores some of the

In the immediate aftermath of the creation of Bangladesh
in 1971, an armed struggle ensued in its remote south-
eastern corner. The hill people in the Chittagong Hill
Tracts, more commonly referred to as paharis, demanded
official recognition, and autonomy, as the indigenous
people of the Tracts. This demand for autonomy was
primarily based on the claim that they were ethnically
distinct from the majority °Bengali° population of
Bangladesh, and thereby needed to protect their unique
