              The Emergence Of The Nieo Ideology

              The Emergence Of The Nieo Ideology (Hardback)

              This study traces the political history of the ideas underlying Third World calls for a New International Economic Order. Filling a significant gap in the literature, the book shows that NIEO ideology has a direct, unbroken line of development extending back to World War II, when... a new international economic order, the Bretton Woods system, was created. Dr. Murphy maintains that NIEO ideology is not rooted only in Third World acceptance of Prebisch's views on trade; rather, it evolved from Third World attempts to cope with problems and opportunities that emerged as the Bretton Woods system was created, operated, and began to break down. By the 1970s, the ideology had become a complex and coherent analysis of the economic position of Third World states, including a political analysis of how Third World views could be made dominant. Many of Dr. Murphy's conclusions challenge the conventional wisdom about the Third World position of the NIEO. In addition, his study offers insight into the relatively unexplored area of how changes in political and social consciousness affect international systems, and provides grounds on which officials from both the South and the North can see the others' views as less alien.

              The Art And Science Of Geography: U.s. And Soviet Perspectives

              The Art And Science Of Geography: U.s. And Soviet Perspectives (Hardback)

              Responding to the changes taking place in the post-Cold War era, the editors of this volume have brought together more than forty distinguished Soviet and U.S. geographers to redefine geography as a discipline and to examine its relationship to other sciences and to the arts. Cha...llenging inevitable barriers of language and of differing social, cultural, and scientific backgrounds, each contributor provides personal insight and perspective, shedding unique light onto this often poorly understood discipline. The book covers a broad sweep of issues, ranging from the methods of geography to examples of practical work done by geographers in Russia and the former republics and the United States. The contributors explore and define advances in quantitative technique, increasingly sophisticated methodology, and the essential relationship between these changes and theory building. They also examine the application of geography in Soviet and U.S. schools as well as the demands that shifting world events are placing on the discipline. The discussions not only reveal the individual perspectives of each geographer but also provide a unique forum for the exploration of similarities and differences within the world's two largest geographic communities. The volume concludes with an afterword by Torsten Hager strand.

              The Dependent City Revisited: The Political Economy Of Urban Development And Social Policy

              The Dependent City Revisited: The Political Economy Of Urban Development And Social Policy (Hardback)

              Here is a book that makes sense of the L.A. riots, homelessness, tax giveaways, and the other big urban issues that are back in the national spotlight. In this streamlined and updated new edition of his classic book, The Dependent City, Paul Kantor now focuses on economic develop...ment and social welfare policies to reveal the key dilemmas of American urban politics. Returning to a political economy theme, Kantor explores how city governments have struggled to escape and accommodate the reality of their economic dependency in the policies that they've pursued. Revisiting cities across the nation, Kantor finds not only that they have become more dependent but also that the character of this dependency has changed and deepened. Exploring local regimes in the Frostbelt and Sunbelt and in suburbia, he finds that they frequently act more like captives of big business rather than as representatives of citizens. Local attempts to promote social justice increasingly run up against a wall of economic dependency created by federal policies and business power. This book signals how American cities can find ways of overcoming this dependency by working together with states and the federal government to promote healthy, democratic urban politics. The Dependent City Revisited is an accessible, provocative supplement for a wide variety of courses in urban studies and political economy as well as stimulating reading for anyone who is interested in understanding America's urban mosaic.

              Serious stock-taking is in progress now among practitioners of whathas been called Sovietology, meaning studies of the Union of SovietSocialist Republics. The reason is that the field for the most part hadnot been expecting what happened in 1991: The USSR collapsed andwent out of... existence as a unified state system governing a sixth ofthe world's territory, having allowed its East European empire tofree itself from Soviet dominance somewhat earlier.It might be said in defense of Sovietology that, by the beginningof the 1980s, it understood that economic and political crises werebrewing in the Soviet Union and its outer empire. But the field asa whole failed to grasp the full depth of the systemic crisis in SovietRussia and the destructive or self-destructive potentialities inherentin it. As the editors of this valuable volume write in the Introduction: Sovietology was not prepared for perestroika and postcommunism.

              This innovative volume offers a comprehensive analysis of the issues surrounding South Asia's precarious security. Going far beyond common considerations of border defense and regime, the contributors rigorously trace the social, economic, and ecological origins of present antago...nisms. Although careful attention is paid to state military policies in the post-Cold War era-particularly as governments respond to a growing arms trade and nuclear proliferation-the authors also explore the far-reaching implications of environmental degradation and narcotics trafficking for security in the region, arguing that threats such as these transcend boundaries and local political regimes. Exposing the fallacies of purely geopolitical, state-centric models for considering security issues, the authors highlight the complex historical interplay between state and unofficial actors. Concrete applications of their analysis to specific cases-like the Kashmir dispute between Pakistan and India-demonstrate the importance of confidence-building measures and the inefficacy of zero-sum approaches to security. Finally, through its dynamic model of security, this volume offers insights into the emerging significance of new regional identities and relations in the next millennium.

              Peasants, Agrarian Socialism, And Rural Development In Ethiopia

              Peasants, Agrarian Socialism, And Rural Development In Ethiopia (Hardback)

              One of the few systematic field surveys undertaken following the 1975 agrarian reform in Ethiopia, this study analyzes the conditions constraining agricultural productivity of peasant farmers in the Arsi region and examines how farmers view peasant and government organizations es...tablished to attain agrarian socialism. Based on data generated through interviews with farmers, peasant association leaders, and extension agents, Dr. Dejene argues that the low prices for agricultural products, shortages of consumer goods, and lack of improvements in farming technology are among the major obstacles to increasing output among peasant farmers. The author also explores the government policy of transforming peasant associations into oollective farming units, which he finds is supported by only one quarter of the farmers interviewed. His study indicates that peasant institutions could best mobilize labor and resources to generate agricultural surplus and undertake conservation activities that would prevent future famine. Thus the author concludes that present government efforts should emphasize strengthening the cooperative movement rather than establishing collective farming.
