Social protest and contentious authoritarianism in China

xiii, 241p. 23cm.
ISBN : 9781107014862.
322.40951 CHE 135404
In this book, the author explores the question of why
there has been a dramatic rise in and routinization of
social protests in China since the early 1990s. This book
examines how the political structure in Reform China has
encouraged Chinese farmers, workers, pensioners, disabled
people and demobilized soldiers to pursue their interests
and claim their rights by staging collective protests.
Chen suggests that routinized contentious bargaining
between the government and ordinary people has remedied
the weaknesses of the Chinese political system and
contributed to the regime-s resilience. Social Protest
and Contentious Authoritarianism in China challenges the
conventional wisdom that authoritarian regimes always
repress popular collective protest and that popular
collective action tends to destabilize authoritarian

controversy over the past decade. This book utilizes
structural models to provide a better understanding of
how commodities- prices behave and what drives them. It
exploits differences across commoditites and examines a
variety of predictions of the models to identify where
they work and where they fail. The findings of the
analysis are useful to scholars, traders, and policy
makers who want to better understand often puzzling--and
extreme--movements in the prices of commoditites from
aluminum to oil to soybeans to zinc.

Rich countries are paying poor countries to fight climate
change on their behalf - and one way they are doing it is
through carbon sinks. These are reservoirs of organic
carbon tied up in plants and in the earth, rather than
being in the atmosphere as greenhouse gases. This book
looks critically at this mode of climate change
mitigation. Can it work? Is it just? Will poorer
countries benefit? The book considers the scientific,
economic and ethical basis for this type of mitigation.

The Making of international trade policy :NGOs, agenda-

Elgar, 2010.
x, 232p. 24cm.
ISBN : 9781849800181.
382.92 MUR 135340
This book investigates the contributions of Non-
Governmental Organizations (NGOs) to policymaking at the
WTO, challenging the idea that NGOs can be narrowly
understood as potential -democratic antidotes- to the
imperfections of Inter-Governmental Organizations (IGOs).
The book highlights the significance of interactions
between states, NGOs and IGOs, in order to understand
their contributions to international trade governance.
Based on case studies in the areas of labour standards,
intellectual property and investment rules, the author
finds that NGO activities serve an agenda setting
function: they publicize neglected trade-related issues,
persuade others to support their positions, enhance the
resources of less developed member states and highlight
normative rationales for policy change.

This book further analyses Lord Krishnas counsel to
Arjuna to bring him out of dejection and refusal to
fight. BG 2.7 may be regarded as a seminal verse in the
history of religion and philosophy. Clusters of Gita
verses dealing with different themes in Lord Krishnas
counseling have been constructed. These Gita Mantra
clusters have the stamp of the Holy, being the spoken
words of Lord Krishna, the Avatar. Besides, many of these
ideas like of Unattached Action agree with contemporary
thinking. This book is expected to be a practical guide
for persons suffering from fear of death and dying. It
may also direct the reader to a higher spiritual life,
for the BG deals with death in a positive manner, as a
milestone on the path to immortality. Intellectuals may
find the present analysis of the Gita structure around
the themes of Death, Work and God as simple and logical.
