Community, Competition and Citizen Science: Voluntary Distributed Computing in a Globalized World

Anne Holohan

Community, Competition and Citizen Science: Voluntary Distributed Computing in a Globalized World by Anne HolohanVoluntary distributed computing projects divide large computational tasks into small pieces of data or work that are sent out over the Internet to be processed by individual users, who participate voluntarily in order to provide solutions that would ordinarily require investments of millions of dollars. This approach is contributing to the transformation of computationally heavy scientific research, opening up participation in science to interested lay people and greatly reducing the cost-barriers to computation for financially challenged researchers. Drawing on face-to-face and online ethnographic,...

Policy Change under New Democratic Capitalism

Hideko Magara

Policy Change under New Democratic Capitalism by Hideko Magara

Democratic capitalism in developed countries has been facing an unprecedented crisis since 2008. Its political manageability is declining sharply. Both democracy and capitalism now involve crucial risks that are significantly more serious than those observed in earlier periods. The notion of policy regimes has gained new significance in analysing the possibilities for a post-neoliberal alternative. Policy innovations directed towards an economic breakthrough require both political leadership and a new economic theory. The processes of political decision making have become quite distant from...

Territories of Poverty challenges the conventional North-South geographies through which poverty scholarship is organized.

Globalization and India's Economic Integration

Baldev Raj Nayar

Globalization and India's Economic Integration by Baldev Raj NayarA common critique of globalization is that it causes economic segmentation and even disintegration of the national economy. Baldev Raj Nayar's examination of India's political economy challenges this critique by demonstrating that, on balance, the active role of the Indian state in the areas of economic planning, fiscal federalism, and tax reform, and the inherently expanding character of the market in areas such as trade, investment, entrepreneurship, and migration have resulted in improved economic integration and not increased segmentation. While globalization has its benefits, such as higher...

The Underside of Politics: Global Fictions in the Fog of the Cold War

Sorin Cucu

The Underside of Politics: Global Fictions in the Fog of the Cold War by Sorin CucuThis book explores the relation between nationhood, literary culture and globalism in the context of the Cold War struggle over the legacy of European modernity, a struggle to represent diverse experiences of the political, after World War II and colonialism. This book argues that, during the Cold War, modern political imagination is held captive by the split between two visions of universality -- freedom in the West vs. social justice in the East -- and by a culture of secrecy that ties national identity to national security. The significance of Cold War political modernity is made evident...

Growth against Democracy: Savage Developmentalism in the Modern World

H. L. T. Quan

Growth against Democracy: Savage Developmentalism in the Modern World by H. L. T. QuanGrowth against Democracy: Savage Developmentalism in the Modern World, by H.L.T. Quan, is a radical critique of development as a modern project. Using three historical cases (Brazil-Japan, China-Africa, and US-Iraq), Quan probes the discursive practices of modern development, exploring the coercive and juridical dimensions of trade, diplomacy and war and their impact. This study builds on the critical works of neoliberalism, capitalist development, and empire to lay the groundwork for an honest assessment of neoliberal economics and foreign conducts and their impact on human life.
