This book explores the post-cosmopolitan city. The
contributors consider the effects of migration, national,
and religious revivals (with their new aesthetic
sensibilities), the dispositions of marginalized economic
actors, and globalized tourism on urban sociality. The
case studies here share the situation of having been
incorporated in previous political regimes (imperial,
colonial, socialist) that one way or another created
their own kind of cosmopolitanism, and now these cities
are experiencing the aftermath of these regimes while
being exposed to new national politics and migratory
flows of people.

What is wrong with today-s banking system? The past few
years have shown that risks in banking can impose
significant costs on the economy. Many claim, however,
that a safer banking system would require sacrificing
lending and economic growth. "The Bankers- New Clothes"
examines this claim and the narratives used by bankers,
politicians, and regulators to rationalize the lack of
reform, exposing them as invalid.

Pillars of prosperity : the political economics of

-- Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2011.
xiv,375p. 22cm.
ISBN : 9780691158150.
338.87 BES 137768
To achieve peace, the authors stress the avoidance of
repressive government and civil conflict. They show that
countries tend to enjoy all three pillars of prosperity
when they have evolved cohesive political institutions
that promote common interests, guaranteeing the provision
of public goods. In line with much historical research,
international conflict has also been an important force
behind effective states by fostering common interests.
The absence of common interests and/or cohesive political
institutions can explain the existence of very different
development clusters in fragile states that are plagued
by poverty, violence, and weak state capacity.

Joseph as the basis for Joseph and His Brothers--
illuminating with his ironic sensibility the notion of
