On the new / Boris Groys.-- London: Verso, 2014.
vi, 200p. , 21cm.
ISBN : 9781781682920.
303.372 GRO 141830
This book looks at the economies of exchange and
valuation that drive modern culture-s key sites: the
intellectual marketplace and the archive. As ideas move
from one context to another, newness is created. This
continuous shifting of the line that separates the
valuable from the worthless, culture from profanity, is
at the center of the author-s investigation which aims to
map the uncharted territory of what constitutes artistic
innovation and what processes underpin its recognition
and appropriation.

regional geography of women and men, using indicators as
diverse as literacy, education, voting patterns, cultural
groupings, fertility rates, workforce participation etc.
The aim is to provide information based on census data
which can help demonstrate the diversity of women s lives
in India, and to provide it in such a way that
readers/users can link one set of facts with another, to
look at what kinds of patterns emerge.

ISBN : 9780719091339.
305.420954 PRO 141840
This book provides a new approach to the growing history
of women and empire by situating women at the centre of
the practices and policies of British imperialism.The
book demonstrates that women were crucial to establishing
and sustaining the British Raj in India from the -High
Noon- of imperialism in the late nineteenth century
through to Indian independence in 1947. Using three
separate modes of engagement with imperialism -
domesticity, violence and race - it demonstrates the many
and varied ways in which British women, particularly the
wives of imperial officials, created a role for
themselves in the empire.

Disability, self, and society / Tanya Titchkosky.--
Toronto: University of Toronto Press, 2013. xiv, 283p. ,
ISBN : 9780802084378.
305.908 TIT 141953
Disability, Self, and Society speaks with authenticity
about disability as a process of identity formation
within a culture that has done a great deal to de-
emphasize the complexity of disability experience. The
author approaches disability as an agentive (not passive)
embodiment of liminality.She argues that disability can
and should be a -teacher- to, and about, non-disabled or
-temporarily abled- society.

Crises of imagination, crises of power : capitalism,

Books, 2014.
314 p. , 22 cm.
ISBN : 9781780329536.
306.3 HAI 141879
The author argues that capitalism has colonized how we
all imagine and express what is valuable. Looking at the
decline of the public sphere, the corporatization of
education, the privatization of creativity, and the power
of finance capital in opposition to the power of the
imagination and the growth of contemporary social
movements, he provides a powerful argument for creating
an anti-capitalist commons.

Before there was economics, there was political economy,
an interdisciplinary adventure boldly and critically
seeking to understand capitalism. Over time, the social
sciences evolved into specific disciplines - economics,
sociology, political science - that less often questioned
capitalist perspectives and the state. Contrasting three
traditions - neoclassicism, Keynesianism, and neo-
Marxism. This book traces the historical development of
each and evaluates whether they view capitalism as the
root cause of or the solution to the pressing problems
now facing humanity.

330.126 FLO 141817
What is the effect of a new infrastructure on the well-
being of a local community? Does the privatization of a
telecommunication provider increase social welfare? To
answer these questions governments and their policy
advisors should have in mind an operative definition of
social welfare, and cannot rely on simple official
statistics, such as GDP. The price we observe are often
misleading as welfare signals, and costs and benefits for
the society should be based on -shadow prices-, revealing
the social opportunity costs of goods and of changes of
the world. This book explains how to apply these welfare
economics ideas to the real world. It offers a unique and
original blend of theory, empirics and experience.

Taking a unique comparative approach to the respective
development paths of India, Brazil and South Africa
(IBSA), this book shows that people and governments in
all three countries are faced with similar challenges of
heightened insecurity, caused by liberalization and
structural adjustment. The ways in which governments, as
well as individuals and worker organisations in IBSA have
responded to these challenges are at the core of this
book. The book explores the nature of insecurity in the
Global South, the nature of the responses to this
insecurity on public and small-scale collective as well
as individual level, the potential of these responses to
be more than neo-liberal mechanisms to govern and contain
the poor and lessons to be learnt from these three

This book has undertaken a study which attempts to
understand how those financial planners who hold the
internationally recognised Certified Financial Planner
(CFP) designation think about being professional. It does
this by interestingly applying the qualitative
methodology of phenomenography which in this book gives
voice to CFP professionals from America, Hong Kong and
Australia. It identifies the qualitatively limited number
of ways professionalism is experienced by this group of
professionals in each of those countries and then
discusses the similarities and differences in conceptions
of professionalism.

ISBN : 9789814472821.
333.7 BAT 141825
This book demonstrates how new dynamic and probabilistic
techniques can be profitably used to study a whole host
of research questions in natural resource management,
biological diversity, ecological economics, invasive
species management, and environmental regulation. It
collects the results of frontier-level research in many
different areas within the general field of natural
resource and environmental economics. It shows how
theoretical modeling, frequently using techniques that
are unfamiliar to economists, can be gainfully utilized
to shed new light on a whole host of issues, some of
which have not been modeled previously in a comprehensive
manner. The book draws connections between the different
areas that are covered so as to provide a common
methodological approach to research questions and a
unified perspective on the key issues in natural resource
and environmental economics.

Fachmedien: Springer VS, 2013.
278p. , 21cm.
ISBN : 9783658024055.
333.7 WOL 141883
The author describes how the growing awareness for the
economic consequences of climate change and the economic
opportunities of climate protection has led to changes in
the rationality of governing climate change, from
reducing emissions to building low-carbon economies. One
crucial strategy for governments in orchestrating the
transformation to cleaner economies is to enable low-
carbon investment.The author therefore takes a critical
look at how climate governance is reframed as an economic
and investment challenge in recent years, and reveals
some of the blind spots of focusing on the economic and
investment opportunities related to climate protection.

The vocabulary and discourse of water resource management

water productivity, virtual water and water governance.
This book applies critical scrutiny to a prominent set of
new but widely used terms, in order to clarify their
meanings and improve the basis on which we identify and
tackle the world-s water challenges. The book takes stock
of what several of the more prominent new terms mean,
reviews variation in interpretation, explores how they
are measured, and discusses their respective added value.
The book enables greater precision on the
interpretational options for the various terms, and for
the value that they add to water policy and its

Water data and information are essential to support
efforts to understand, manage, allocate, utilize and
protect water resources. The impact of climate change on
hydrological regimes represents a key potential stress on
water systems. This issue could be the catalyst for
adapting policies to provide more efficient and effective
use and management of water resources and advance
institutional and governance reforms in the water
sector. This book is based on a special issue of the

How much would poor nations need to invest to eliminate
poverty, get all children in school and provide adequate
basic health care for all? Can they afford it? This book
provides some clear answers to these questions. The
contributors assess feasible financing strategies
underpinning actions to enhance human development in
pursuance of the United Nations- Millennium Development
Goals (MDGs). They analyse these strategies in the
context of broader concerns of economic development in
nine countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. The
assessments stress the importance of redesigning
macroeconomic policies so as to make these more
supportive of long-term economic growth and employment
creation, while ensuring sufficient investments in human
development in order to end poverty and overcome deep-
rooted inequalities.

This book positions the Brundtland Commission as a key
event within a longer series of international reactions
to pressing problems of global poverty and environmental
degradation. It shows that its report, "Our Common
Future", published in 1987, covered much more than its
definition of sustainable development as "development
that meets the needs of the present without compromising
the ability of future generations to meet their own
needs" for which it became best known. It also addressed
a long list of issues which remain unresolved today. It
explores how the work of the Commission juggled
contradictory expectations and world views, which existed
within the Commission and beyond, and drew on the concept
of sustainable development as a way to reconcile profound

This book discusses how to create a sustainable world.
Through their dialogue and essays that open each section,
the authors uncover two core facets of our culture that
drive the unsustainable, unsatisfying, and unfair social
and economic machines that dominate our lives. First, our
collective model of the way the world works cannot cope
with the inherent complexity of today-s highly connected,
high-speed reality. Second, our understanding of human
behavior is rooted in this outdated model.

The creation of widespread public consent for family
planning in Kerala, which ensured the non-coercive
implementation of birth control in Malayali society, has
been regarded as no less than the -jewel in the crown- of
the Kerala model of social development. This book
reconstructs the history of the generation of such assent
to produce a critical examination of this crucial aspect
of social development in Kerala. It adds to the new inter
disciplinary work on questions traditionally considered
native to demography and is of interest to anyone
interested in Kerala-s experience of social development
and its demographic -achievements-.

This book takes a fresh look at applying regression
analysis in the behavioural sciences by introducing the
reader to regression analysis through a simple model-
building approach.The authors start with the basics and
begin by re-visiting the mean, and the standard
deviation, with which most readers will already be
familiar, and show that they can be thought of a least
squares model. The book then shows that this least
squares model is actually a special case of a regression
analysis and can be extended to deal with first one, and
then more than one independent variable.
