Revisiting Terrorism Discourse

Revisiting Terrorism Discourse by Koshy NinanIn 'Revisiting Terrorism Discourse' and other essays that follow suit, Dr Ninan Koshy brings about an alternate discourse to the already propagated US definition and discourse of 'terrorism'. Terrorism for liberation, for occupation and varied other reasons make it difficult to strike upon one universal definition of 'terrorism'. These essays take look into the correlation of trends in terrorism, of countries that apparently manifest terrorism, and other interesting takes on the vastly debatable subject.

Challenges of Development in Africa: The Missing Technology Link, the Morbid Corruption Pandemic

Challenges of Development in Africa: The Missing Technology Link, the Morbid Corruption Pandemic by Austin AnekeUndoubtedly, Africa has experienced its fair share of pains during the process of world development. As it remains the most underdeveloped continent, with disproportionate levels of intimidation, domination and all that goes with underdevelopment, this book attempts to discover why. While even Asia, an ex-colonised part of the world has evolved into tigers, Africa remains the epicentre for bad policies, corruption, financial insolvency, poor governance and poverty. The author recognises that the negative impacts of colonialism on Africa are massive, but voices that ex-colonies like India and...

Amnesty and Revolution: An Amateur's View of Life As It Stands

Amnesty and Revolution: An Amateur's View of Life As It Stands by Ben FitchThrough engagement with human behaviour from the level of the private individual to the international community, in Amnesty and Revolution: An Amateur's View of Life As It Stands a holistic type of reform is advocated; solutions to scarcity and inequity are formulated with due regard to the cost of revoking commitments already in motion.

The author's rationale is to provide a counterbalance wherever excess or paucity is perceived, and by applying a moderate degree of erudition and scientific understanding to the exercise of drawing inferences and forging creative associations, the book's themes...

The WTO by Lori Wallach & Michelle SforzaIn this groundbreaking pamphlet, directors of Ralph Nader's Public Citizen group examine the first five years of the World Trade Organization's track record, demonstrating how the WTO aims to create a new global economic system that increases corporate profit with little regard for social and ecological impacts, or democratically enacted law. Wallach and Sforza make clear recommendations for altering the undemocratic course that the WTO imposes on democratic society.

Civilisation Hijacked: Rescuing Jesus from Christianity and the human spirit From Bondage

Civilisation Hijacked: Rescuing Jesus from Christianity and the human spirit From Bondage by Al MorrisWorship of this ancient mythical god has produced distorted political and social systems. This is the foundation of today's values and worldview among general populations of the so-called civilized world. Tradition (slow cultural conditioning) and the use of modern social engineering manufactured the world we have today. A world controlled by a few small powerful groups in the area of religion, politics and commerce. In the hands of unscrupulous people, fear and greed have been sown and cultivated individually and nationally, for wealth and power of their particular limited group rather than...

She explores...

10 Reasons to Abolish the IMF & World Bank

Shooting Hipsters: Rethinking Dissent in the Age of PR

Shooting Hipsters: Rethinking Dissent in the Age of PR by Christiana SpensIn an age of PR, public protest and other forms of dissent have lost their meaning and impact. The intense media interest in rioting and political violence, as well as an existing obsession with youth culture, have led to an over-saturation and misrepresentation of what these movements are about. Political protest has become a pantomime where activists are always villains, and therefore the politics of these groups are routinely ignored. By identifying the ways in which publicity has helped and hindered a wide range of movements, Shooting Hipsters will find out the ways in which dissenting groups...

Global Financial Shocks and Foreign Asset Repatriation: Do Local Investors Play a Stabilizing Role?

Global Financial Shocks and Foreign Asset Repatriation: Do Local Investors Play a Stabilizing Role? by Gustavo Adler & Marie-Louise DjigbenouWe study the dynamic response of gross capital flows in emerging market economies to different global financial shocks, using a panel vector-autoregressive (PVAR) setting. Our focus lies primarily on the potentially stabilizing role played by domestic investors in offsetting the response of foreign investors to global shocks. We find evidence of such role, but its existence and magnitude depend on the nature of the shock. Local investors play a meaningful stabilizing role in the face of global uncertainty shocks, as well as shocks to long-term U.S. interest rates. However, while in the former...

Runaway World

Runaway World by Anthony Giddens'Before the current global era it is impossible to imagine that comparable events [like September 11] could have occurred, reflecting as they do our new-found interdependence. The rise of global terrorism, like world-wide networks involving in money-laundering, drug-running and other forums of organised crime, are all parts of the dark side of globalisation.' From the new Preface This book is based on the highly influential BBC Reith lecture series on globalisation delivered in 1999 by Anthony Giddens. Now updated with a new chapter addressing the post-September 11th global landscape, this book remains the intellectual...

Understanding the Global TV Format

Understanding the Global TV Format by J. Malbon & A. MoranRecent years have seen an astonishing growth in the adaptation of program formats in television systems across the world. Under the new market conditions of the multi-channel cluster brought about by new technologies and increased privatisation of service, the adaptation of successful and popular TV formats from one place to another is occurring on an increasingly regular basis. Hence, the remaking of different national versions of Big Brother and Pop Idol are only part of what is going on. In fact, from Chinese versions of Coronation Street and Sex and the City, Indian and Indonesian remakes...

Environmental Policies and Strategic Communication in Iran: The Value of Public Opinion Research in Decision Making

Environmental Policies and Strategic Communication in Iran: The Value of Public Opinion Research in Decision Making by Daniele Calabrese & Fabio Santucci & Elena StanghelliniAir pollution in Tehran has become a major problem in recent years, due to the geographical position of the town, industries, and traffic. Most private and public vehicles are old and have no emission control systems. The Municipality of Tehran and the Department of Environment have started several actions to reduce pollution, with communication activities being part of their strategy. For better planning, and to make possible the monitoring and evaluation of the communication activities, a baseline study was completed in 2004 using direct interviews of 1,200 Tehran residents. The interviews...

50 Facts That Should Change the World

50 Facts That Should Change the World by Jessica WilliamsIn this new edition of her bestseller, Jessica Williams tests the temperature of our world and diagnoses a malaise with some shocking symptoms. Get the facts but also the human side of the story on the world?s hunger, poverty, material and emotional deprivation; its human rights abuses and unimaginable wealth; the unstoppable rise of consumerism, mental illness, the drugs trade, corruption, gun culture, the abuse of our environment and more. The prognosis might look bleak, yet there is hope, Williams argues, and it's down to us to act now to change things.

Real England

Real England by Paul KingsnorthWe see the signs around us every day: the chain cafés and mobile phone outlets that dominate our high streets; the disappearance of knobbly carrots from our supermarket shelves; and the headlines about yet another traditional industry going to the wall. For the first time, here is a book that makes the connection between these isolated, incremental local changes and the bigger picture of a nation whose identity is being eroded. As he travels around the country meeting farmers, fishermen and the inhabitants of Chinatown, Paul Kingsnorth reports on the kind of conversations that are taking...
