This book highlights the Derridean assertion that the
university must exist -without condition- - as a bastion
of intellectual freedom and oppositional activity whose
job it is to question mainstream society. Derrida argued
that only if the life of the mind is kept free from
excessive corporate influence and political control can
we be certain that the basic tenets of democracy are
being respected within the very societies that claim to
defend democratic principles.

This book examines the intersection of agricultural
histories, heterogeneous social contexts and new
technological developments in rural communities across
the Global South. It shows how experiences of the
previous Green Revolution can inform new agricultural
programs and enable equitable and participatory
development in rural places. Through close engagement
with rural communities, this book ensures that rural
voices become part of the debate on agricultural
development and suggests pathways for building on the
gains of the Green Revolution without necessarily
repeating its problematic social, technological and
environmental aspects.

(Routledge explorations in economic history, 69).
ISBN : 9780415659260.
330.156 KEY 141942
Starting from Keynes-s early political activity, the
author charts the stages through which Alfred Marshall-s
young pupil rapidly rose to be one of his country-s major
experts on monetary issues. The very young Liberal
Imperialist was soon to become a staunch supporter of the
liberal government, strongly committed to Lloyd George-s
1909 -people-s budget-. Moreover, the good relations he
had established during his two years at the India Office
of London and his growing expertise in money and finance,
made him one of the few who genuinely grasped the
functioning of the pre-war gold standard, and an ally of
the Treasury and the Bank of England in the struggle
within the City for control and management of London-s
gold reserves.

State re-scaling is the central concept mobilized in this
book to interpret the political processes that are
producing new economic spaces in India. In the quarter
century since economic reforms were introduced, the
Indian economy has experienced strong growth accompanied
by extensive sectoral and spatial restructuring. This
book argues that in this reformed institutional context,
where both state spaces and economic geographies are
being rescaled, subnational states play an increasingly
critical role in coordinating socioeconomic activities.
