Looking back to the origins and evolution of foreign aid
during the Cold War, the author invites us to recognize
the strategic thinking at the heart of development
assistance--as well as the political costs. In the
book, he argues that superpowers turned to foreign aid as
a tool of the Cold War. India, the largest of the ex-
colonies, stood at the center of American and Soviet aid
competition. Officials of both superpowers saw
development aid as an instrument for pursuing geopolitics
through economic means. But Indian officials had
different ideas, seeking superpower aid to advance their
own economic visions, thus bringing external resources
into domestic debates about India-s economic future. He
reconstructs a story of Indian leaders using Cold War
competition to win battles at home, but in the process
eroding the Indian state. The Indian case provides an
instructive model today.

(World Scientific series on complexity science , 5).
ISBN : 9781786342034.

This book argues that there is a need for urgency in the
application of analytical tools which embody the
principles of complexity management in sustainability
research, in particular in the context of the global
climate change. The approach presented is based on the
concept of clusters of whole systems coming together
through collaboration, in order to create larger wholes
capable of dealing with the issues facing our socio-
economic environmental systems. The authors further
clarify the viability and sustainability (VandS) approach,
and the criteria and framework needed for sustainable
governance. It includes a more detailed perspective on
the implications of the VandS approach to businesses and
networks towards changes in structure, strategy and
processes, inspired by specific case studies.

Is fiscal deficit detrimental to growth rate? Does it
create macroeconomic imbalance? If so, is deficit
containment a prerequisite for sustained reduction in
inflation? Does fiscal deficit crowd out private
investment and, if so, to what extent? Does fiscal
deficit affect rate of interest? This book analyses such
debates and impacts of fiscal deficit in India,
empirically, through macro econometric exercise. Filling
an existing gap, it revisits the debate on the
macroeconomic effects of deficit by taking India as a
case study based on a long-time series analysis from 1980
81 to 2012-13.

This book investigates the interrelationship between
educational reforms and pedagogical and technological
innovations, as well as the implications of this
relationship for the quality of human capital. By
analyzing recent educational reforms in Russia and the
US, the authors shed new light on how these reforms may
help or hinder innovations, such as the introduction of
computer technologies into classrooms, new methods of
teacher evaluation, constructivist teaching methods, and
governance in public schools.

This text studies the variety of organisational
strategies selected to cope with critical uncertainties
during crises. This research formulates and applies an
institutional sense-making model to explain the selection
of strategies for coping with uncertainties during crises
to answer the question why some organisations select a

The book offers perspectives from two distinct

Scholars in social science (including economics,
management, and sociology) tend to study performance.
Ideas of progress, on the other hand, tend to fall more
under the purview of philosophers (in particular social
and political philosophers). Further, to obtain an
insider-s view on practice and possibilities, the volume
includes essays from a handful of thoughtful business

This book offers fresh insights into innovation
management and its prerequisites. Based on these

system, which is being used in practice and has the
potential to significantly increase the ability of
enterprises to innovate. Starting with the innovation
dilemma that enterprises face, the book analyses the
concept of innovation as it is (mis)understood in
practice, and identifies the missing element in current
innovation theories-the innovation gap.
