In a culture that worships ceaseless striving, settling
seems like giving up. This title explores the dynamics of
this process. It explains why settling is useful for
planning, creating trust, and strengthening the social
fabric - and why settling is different from compromise
and resignation.

3 Armstrong, Adrian
Ethics and justice for the environment / Adrian Armstrong
-- London: Routledge, 2012.
xiii, 274. 23cm.
ISBN : 9780415509039.
179.1 ARM 135975
Examining the issues of ethics and justice as they apply
to the environment, this book starts from the observation
that the parallel expositions of environmental ethics and
environmental justice appear to have few points of
contact. Environmental justice is highly politicized and
concerned with human access to the environment and the
unequal exposure to environmental pollution. By contrast
environmental ethical studies are a wide ranging
collection of approaches that are concerned with caring
for the earth, and the justifications for it, but rarely
consider the issue of justice. Although the two movements
do not come together at the theoretical level, they do so
at the grass roots activist level. An essential component
of this study is thus to consider both the issues of
grass roots action, and the application of the methods to
actual case studies.

Environmental solidarity : how religions can sustain

The past few decades have seen the beginnings of a
convergence between religions and ecological movements.
The environmental crisis has called the religions of the
world to respond by finding their voice within the larger
Earth community. At the same time, a certain religiosity
has started to emerge in some areas of secular ecological
thinking. Beyond mere religious utilitarianism, rooted in
an understanding of the deepest connections between human
beings, their worldviews, and nature itself, this book
tries to show how religious believers can look at the
world through the eyes of faith and find a broader
paradigm to sustain sustainability, proposing a model for
transposing this paradigm into practice, so as to develop
long-term sustainable solutions that can be tested
against reality.

Borderless economics : Chinese sea turtles, Indian

250p. 24cm.
ISBN : 9780230113824.
303.48209 GUE 135963
In Borderless Economics, Robert Guest, travels through
dozens of countries and 44 American states, observing how
these networks create wealth, spread ideas and foster
innovation. He shows how brainy Indians in America
collaborate with brainy Indians in India to build $70
fridges and $300 houses, young Chinese study in the West
and then return home (where they-re known as "sea
turtles"), infecting China with ideas that will
eventually turn it democratic, and America-s unique
ability to attract and absorb migrants lets it tap into
the energy of all the world-s diaspora networks. So
despite its current woes, if the United States keeps its
borders open, it will remain the world-s most powerful
nation indefinitely. With on-the-ground reporting from
Asia, Africa, Europe and even Idaho, this book examines
how migration, for the all the disruption it causes,
makes the world wealthier and happier.

Race and the education of desire : Foucault-s History of
Sexuality and the Colonial Order of Things / Ann Laura
Stoler.-- Durham: Duke University Press, 1995.
xiv, 237p. 23cm.
ISBN : 9780822316909.
305.8 STO 136179
In "Race and the Education of Desire, "Stoler challenges
Foucault-s tunnel vision of the West and his
marginalization of empire. She also argues that this
first volume of "History of Sexuality" contains a
suggestive if not studied treatment of race.Drawing on
Foucault-s little-known 1976 College de France lectures,
Stoler addresses his treatment of the relationship
between biopower, bourgeois sexuality, and what he
identified as "racisms of the state." "Race and the
Education of Desire" will revise current notions of the
connections between European and colonial historiography
and between the European bourgeois order and the colonial
treatment of sexuality.

and roles of media, along with comprehensive discussions
of legal, institutional and regulatory frameworks in an
Asian water management context. The overall focus is on
how water can be managed efficiently, cost-effectively
and equitably in various Asian countries.This book was
based on a special issue of the International Journal of
Water Resources Development.

In this groundbreaking book, international experts
respond to the question: what role can water accounting
play in resolving individual, organizational, industry,
national and international economic, social and
environmental issues? One of the most pressing global
issues of the 21st Century is the scarcity of water of a
quantity appropriate to ensure economic, environmental
and social sustainability. In addressing the issue
through policy and management, of critical importance is
access to high quality information.

The economics of science : a critical realist overview /
David Tyfield.-- New York: Routledge, 2012.
xiv, 216p. 24cm.
V.2- towards a synthesis of political economy and science
and technology studies.
ISBN : 9780415688734.
338.475 TYF 135958
This book argues that the fundamental underlying problem
in all cases is the ontological shallowness of these
theories, which can only be remedied by attention to
ontological presuppositions. Conversely, a critical
realist approach affords the integration of a realist
political economy into the analysis of the economics of
science that does afford explicit attention to these
crucial questions. Accordingly, the book sets out an
introduction to the existing literature on the economics
of science together with novel discussion of the field
from a critical realist perspective. In arguing thus
across levels of abstraction, however, the book also
explores how concerted engagement with substantive social
enquiry and theoretical debate develops and strengthens
critical realism as a philosophical project, rather than
simply -applying- it.

338.9 ARE 135989
An alternative model of economic growth emerged from the
Cambridge School of Keynesian economists in the 1950s and
1960s. This model - developed mainly by Luigi Pasinetti -
emphasizes the importance of demand, human learning and
the growth dynamics of industrial systems. Finally, in
the past decade, new mainstream models have emerged
incorporating technology or demand-based structural
change and extending the notion of balanced growth. This
collection of essays reassesses Pasinetti-s theory of
structural dynamics in the context of these recent
developments, with contributions from economists writing
in both the mainstream and the Cambridge Keynesian
traditions and including Luigi Pasinetti, William Baumol,
Geoffrey Harcourt and Nobel laureate Robert Solow.

The book reveals that much of the organized violence
witnessed today--such as counterterrorism, urban
fighting, insurgencies, preemptive war, and ethnic
cleansing--has ample precedent in the classical era. The
book examines the preemption and unilateralism used to
instill democracy during Epaminondas-s great invasion of
the Peloponnesus in 369 BC, as well as the
counterinsurgency and terrorism that characterized Rome-s
battles with insurgents such as Spartacus, Mithridates,
and the Cilician pirates. The collection looks at the
urban warfare that became increasingly common as more
battles were fought within city walls, and follows the
careful tactical strategies of statesmen as diverse as
Pericles, Demosthenes, Alexander, Pyrrhus, Caesar, and
Augustus. Makers of Ancient Strategy shows how Greco-
Roman history sheds light on wars of every age.
