|| 1 Lukacs, Georg
The Destruction of reason / Georg Lukacs.-- New Delhi:
193 LUK 147042
In this book, the author shows how Nazism attacked reason
and science. Irrationalism mirrors reaction-s contempt
for science and its indulgence in superstition and
myth. He shows how irrationalism was born in German feudal
absolutism-s reaction to the French revolution of 1789.
Lukacs examines and criticises German sociology in the
imperialist period (Max Weber, Karl Mannheim and Carl
Schmitt), social Darwinism and racial theory from Joseph
Gobineau to Houston Chamberlain, and vitalism in imperial
Germany (Wilhelm Dilthey, Georg Simmel, Oswald Spengler,
Martin Heidegger and Karl Jaspers). He shows how their
ideas were either no barrier to Nazism (Weber, Mannheim,
Dilthey, Simmel and Jaspers) or actually paved the way
for fascism (Schmitt, Gobineau, Chamberlain, Spengler and
Heidegger).Lukacs shows how Nazism took over the whole
legacy of irrationalism. Irrationalism is always an
ideology of militant reaction, it is all about combating
Marxism,dialectical and historical materialism.

This book promises to describe political and economic
dynamics as interwoven as they are in real life and it
adds to that an evolutionary perspective. The latter
allows for a long-run view, which makes it possible to
discuss the emergence and exit of social institutions. The
essays in this volume explore the theoretical and
methodological aspects of evolutionary political economy.
In part one, the authors consider the foundational
contributions of some of the great economists of the
past, while the second part demonstrates the benefits of
adopting the methods of computer simulation and agent-

Late neoclassical economics: the restoration of

Yahya M Madra.-- London: Routledge, 2017.
xi, 206p. ,24cm.
New political economy,18.
330.157 MAD 147052
This book draws on the work of Louis Althusser, Michel
Foucault and the Amherst School, to construct the concept
of a self-transparent and self-conscious human subject
(Homo economics) as the theoretical humanist core of the
neoclassical tradition. It offers a careful genealogy of
many of the new concepts and approaches - including
evolutionary game theory, experimental economics and
behavioural economics - and reads their elaboration as
part of the restoration of the theoretical humanist core
of the tradition.

Transition economies: transformation, development, and

Aleksandr V Gevorkyan.-- London: Routledge, 2018.
ISBN : 9781138831131

This book explores the continuous economic and social
transformation of the post-socialist world. The book’s
core exploration evolves along three pivots of
competitive economic structure, institutional change, and
social welfare. The main elements include analysis of the
emergence of the socialist economic model, its
adaptations through the twentieth century, discussion of
the 1990s market transition reforms, post-2008 crisis
development, and the social and economic diversity in the
region today. With an appreciation for country specifics,
the book also considers the urgent problems of social
policy, poverty, income inequality, and labor migration.

Industrial relations in emerging economies: the quest

By examining the evolution of industrial relations
institutions in the emerging economies of Brazil, China,
India, South Africa and Turkey, the authors in this book
assess the contribution of these institutions to
inclusive development. This book uses real-world examples
to assess the relevance of the conceptual frameworks used
to examine employment relations. The chapters focus on
the evolution of industrial relations institutions and
the role that these have played in periods of economic
and political transition. They demonstrate that rather
than acting as a constraint on development, trade unions
can contribute to stability, security and equity. The
authors reveal a continuing demand for independent
collective interest representation in labour relations,
whether in the informal economy or in rapidly

Managing currency risk: how Japanese films choose
invoicing currency/Takatoshi Ito and others.--
Cheltenham: Edward Elgar Publishing,2018.
332.45 ITO 147053
The yen is now one of the major currencies freely traded
in the world, and yet, many Japanese exporters take on a
currency risk by invoicing in US dollars. In this book,
the authors examine why this is the case, particularly
for those exporters who have a strong presence in global
markets. It enhances our understanding of exporters’
behaviour by analysing the key factors that influence
their choice of invoice currency. Detailed research based
on unique data sets is used to highlight how firm size,
product competitiveness, intra/inter-firm trade and the
geography of export destination impact this decision.

Dispossession without development: land grabs in
neoliberal India / Michael Levien.-- New Delhi: Oxford
ISBN : 9780190915513
333.3154 LEV 147043
Since the mid-2000s, India has been beset by widespread
farmer protests against land dispossession. This book
demonstrates that beneath these conflicts lay a profound
shift in regimes of dispossession. Using the case of a
village in Rajasthan that was dispossessed for a private
Special Economic Zone, the book ethnographically
illustrates the exclusionary trajectory of capitalism
driving dispossession in contemporary India. Taking us
into the lives of diverse villagers in "Rajpura," the
book meticulously documents the destruction of
agricultural livelihoods, the marginalization of rural
labour, the spatial unevenness of infrastructure
provision and the dramatic consequences of real estate
speculation for social inequality and village politics.
