Global Markets and Financial Crises in Asia : Towards a Theory for the 21st Century
Palgrave Macmillan, UK, 2004. First Edition. Hardcover. New/New . 272 Pages. NEW. Why did the financial crises break out in Asia? Why did they Spread? Why did Argentina unravel? How can we prevent or manage these new types of financial crises? What new domestic, regional and global institutions do we need to build so that a global financial crisis and depression can be avoided? Haider A. Khan presents a new theory of financial crises in the age of globalization from an evolutionary perspective and suggests policies that may be necessary for averting or managing new financial crises. Starting with the Asian financial crises, he identifies new types of financial crises that result from a combination of liberalization, weak domestic institutions for economic governance and a chaotic global market system without global governance institutions. Suggested solutions involve building new institutions or global and domestic governance and domestic and international policy reforms. Book Description: Why did the f... Read more

New Delhi, India: Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., 2000 The work provides a readable analysis of the economy of British Orissa. Princely Orissa and hill-tribes of Orissa. The impact of colonial economy combined with the consequences of fragmentation of Oriya-speaking areas brought about colossal change in the material condition of the people of Orissa. The poverty and starvation had taken root among the common mass of Orissa while a select class lived a parasitic life in abundance of wealth, thriving easy on the cheaply available labour and the back-breaking toil of the farmers and artisans. The crux of the problem was that indigenous economic system remained nearly intact, though stagnant and ossified, scarcely able to release more wealth to meet the growing demands. Even today any excursion to an Orissan village, unless modernised under the Five Year Plans, reveal to an observer that traditional economy in its structure in the system that supports the land-based people, however inadequately.

New Delhi, India: KW Publishers, 2011 Traditional conception of security emphasises territorial integrity and national sovereignty as primary values to be protected. In this notion, traditional threats are essentially related to external military threats that seek to undermine the security of the sovereign state and its territorial integrity. As the present book shows, the threats to Central Asian security are both external and internal. Today challenges from non-traditional threats are greater than traditional ones. Ethnic, religious and linguistic issues can create instability. Similarly, poverty, hunger, unemployment and unequal distribution of wealth as well as environmental issues are going to pose the biggest challenge to the regional states in the near future. The drying up of the Aral Sea is affecting the health and lives of hundreds of thousands of people cutting across republics. Water-related confrontations are not unlikely given the problems related to water-sharing in the region. This book focuse... Read more

Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd, 1987. Hardcover. New. Poverty and underdevelopment is of utmost Importance as far the subject is concerned. In the past few years, there have been tremendous discussions on the mass poverty and underdevelopment problems and what should be done about them. Poverty and underdevelopment have most crucial problems, not only for some but for all nations. We in India believe that our poverty, the abysmal poverty of Asia, is a Product of the 19th century colonialization. A huge amount of resources went out of this part of Asia in the last century and helped to Finance the Industrial Revolution in the North World. Asia thus exported Wealth to West European Nations in the last century, and imported poverty in turn. Poverty is not only always with us but everywhere with us. It is an inter-related condition of deprivation. Eradication of poverty can ultimately be achieved by economic development and more equal distribution of income. However, there is no other method of relieving poverty immediate... Read more

Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd, 2007. Hardcover. New. India’s economy, which for decades was stuck with the so-called Hindu rate of growth around 3 per cent, has hit the 9 per cent mark for the last two consecutive years. Leading economists hold that the growth can be sustained in the coming years if the government can put in place more reforms and implement them. There is no denying the fact that the initiatives taken in the early 199s continue to bring rich rewards and have enabled India to have the fourth largest GDP in the world in terms of purchasing power. The policy-driven reforms have taken our country from the Third World status to one that plays an important role in defining the fate of the global economy. The country is in the midst of a great transformation, almost epochal in scope. Everything is positive in the economy today—manufacturing is resurgent, services going strong, revenue collection buoyant, export jumping 22.9 per cent, foreign inv... Read more

Writing the History of the Global
Paperback. New. The early part of the twenty-first century has witnessed a profound turn in history writing and museum culture towards global and world history. Historians and curators are rapidly changing what they do: no longer satisfied with traditional national histories and area studies, they are pursuing histories of subjects affected by environmental change, migration, slavery, trade and travel. They face challenges of writing about individuals and families in the world, and of political cultures and ideas that have transformed as they have moved between different regions of the world. They are 'going beyond borders' and pursuing wider concepts of connectedness and of cosmopolitanism as these have developed in social theory. Where has all this come from, and where is it taking us as historians? Writing The History of the Global brings together a number of the major historians now entering the field and re-thinking the way they write their histories. We read the reflections of China experts, h... Read more

Paperback. New. The English 'Old Poor Law' was the first national system of tax-funded social welfare in the world. It provided a safety net for hundreds of thousands of paupers at a time of very limited national wealth and productivity. The First Century of Welfare, which focusses on the poor, but developing, county of Lancashire, provides the first major regional study of poverty and its relief in the seventeenth century. Drawing on thousands of individual petitions for poor relief, presented by paupers themselves to magistrates, it peers into the social and economic world of England's marginal people. Taken together, these records present a vivid and sobering picture of the daily lives and struggles of the poor. We can see how their family life, their relations with their kin and their neighbours, and the dictates of contemporary gender norms conditioned their lives. We can also see how they experienced illness and physical and mental disability; and the ways in which real people's lives ... Read more

Cary, North Carolina, U.S.A.: Oxford Univ Press. As New. 1995. Soft Cover. 8vo 019509283X Book Condition: New.... from the publisher "Rivers in India are commonly associated with certain worldly religious values: wealth, beauty, long life, good health, food, love, and the birth of children. And yet, these "domestic" values have been relatively neglected by Indologists, who have tended to view India and Hinduism through the prism of poverty, misery, asceticism, and themes of purity or pollution. Presenting recent scholarship and arguing that the earthly pursuits are equally vital to an understanding of popular Hinduism, Anne Feldhaus here examines the role of these ideals in the religious meanings of rivers in Maharashtra, a large region of western India, where rivers are imagined, enshrined, worshipped, and feared .
