            The Good Citizen: The Markers of Privilege in America

            The Good Citizen: The Markers of Privilege in America (Hardback)

            Using applied political theory, JoAnne Myers presents five markers by which citizens become second-class citizens-property, productivity, participation, patriotism and reproduction. Citizenship is a highly contested status since it grants members political rights and responsibili...ties. It is contextualized by cultural, political, historical, economic, situational, and place. In the United States, we think of citizenship in principle as democratic but citizenship is not just a binary status: norms, policies and laws can mark some citizens as other . In The Good Citizen: The Markers of Privilege in America, Myers argues that being marked as not having or achieving these markers is how citizenship is controlled and regulated. To illustrate this argument, each chapter begins with a practical question or myth to ease the reader into the marker being examined. She later articulates the ways in which law and norms, and biopower regulates and controls citizens in three policy areas. Myers moves beyond theories of citizen marginalization based on identity politics and intersectionality to provide a new understandings of citizenship practice. The Good Citizen will be of interest to scholars and researchers of the politics, sociology, or legal studies of citizenship, and anyone concerned with distributive justice.

            Women's Education and Empowerment in Rural India

            Women's Education and Empowerment in Rural India (Hardback)

            This is a book about understanding women's empowerment and pathways as well as roadblocks to women's economic empowerment in rural India, as understood through an evaluation-based research of a state-funded social sector programme located in the education department - Mahila Sama...khya (MS) - in Bihar, one of the socially and educationally most underdeveloped Indian states. The book presents findings of the three-year research that adopted a mixed-methods approach and evaluated the impact of MS on various facets of empowerment of women coming from the most marginalized communities. The study, therefore, tries to go beyond evaluating the MS programme and uses the research findings and insights to raise certain critical issues pertaining to social policy planning and implementation, especially in the context of women's education and empowerment. Please note: Taylor & Francis does not sell or distribute the Hardback in India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka

            A State in Disarray: Conditions of Chad's Survival

            Although independent since 1960, Chad has proved to be one of the least viable African states. Sustained politically and financially by other countries from the outset, Chad's internal warfare has made it the prey of external powers. Yet Chad has survived-an integral element of t...he Organization of African Unity's Pax Africana and of a peaceful trans-Saharan Africa. Its jeopardized survival is a shaky testimony to the continuing validity of the African continent's colonial-based states-system-underwritten by the OAU and the UN-and at the same time it provides a striking example of the cumulative effects of Africa's post-independence problems. Examining the state's internal weakness and the degree and nature of its foreign involvements, the author focuses on Chad's continuing dilemma: The outside support so crucial for viability is the very thing that undermines its international standing. The roles of Libya, France, the United States, the UN, the OAU, and the trans-Saharan regional subsystem are also analyzed as the author illuminates the quandary of supporting the state without aggravating its conflicts.

            This comprehensive, critical examination of Africa's future-written by a diverse group of Africans and Africanists-raises many questions and challenges concerning the development and unity of the African continent. Eclectic in range and method, but cohesive in concern, the book i...dentifies and analyzes alternative probabilities in the political, economic, and social spheres and on the national, regional, and international levels. Many of the contributors point toward an unpromising future for Africa unless its development strategy is changed and its inheritance of dependence on the world system overcome.

            First published in 1994, this volume's seeks to evaluate the impact of trade restrictions and other forms of government intervention on the development of manufacturing industries in Zimbabwe in the 1980s. The study focuses on the period after independence in Zimbabwe up to 1989.... The emphasis of the study is on (a) the extent and levels of effective protection afforded the industries by the system and (b) the efficiency of all industries created by the system of protection. This research seeks to assess the extent of protection created by managed trade and other forms of government intervention, and the resultant efficiency of manufacturing sector industries, using single period effective rate of protection (ERP) and domestic resource cost (DRC) estimates. The aim is to show the structure of incentives and efficiency implications of intervention for sample firms and the whole manufacturing sector.
