Development Assistance for Peacebuilding

by Rachel M. Gisselquist

Development assistance to fragile states and conflict-affected areas can be a core component of peacebuilding, providing support for the restoration of government functions, delivery of basic services, the rule of law, and economic revitalization. What has worked, why it has worked, and what is scalable and transferable, are key questions for both development practice and research into how peace is built and the interactive role of domestic and international processes therein. Despite a wealth of research into these questions, significant gaps remain. This volume speaks to these gaps through new analysis of a selected set of well-regarded aid interventions. Drawing on diverse scholarly and policy expertise, eight case study chapters span multiple domains and regions to analyse Afghanistan...

The Eye of Shiva: Eastern Mysticism and Science

by Amaury de Riencourt

The Eye of Shiva represents the all-seeing eye "which can penetrate to the hidden levels of existence impervious to normal sight." In this original and visionary book, Amaury de Riencourt argues that man has reached a watershed in history where these "hidden levels of existence ' will become available to all of us.The key event is the impending convergence of Eastern mysticism and Western science brought about by revolutionary development in physics. Since the emergence of the "New Physics," mechanical models of the universe have lost their use. Western scientists looking for a new philosophical model of the universe are discovering a framework that mystics have used for millennia.Amaury de Riencourt maintains that the "higher state of consciousness" of the mediating yogi, the enlightenmen...

Voices of Labor: Creativity, Craft, and Conflict in Global Hollywood

by Michael Curtin and Kevin Sanson

Motion pictures are made, not mass produced, requiring a remarkable collection of skills, self-discipline, and sociality—all of which are sources of enormous pride among Hollywood’s craft and creative workers. The interviews collected here showcase the ingenuity, enthusiasm, and aesthetic pleasures that attract people to careers in the film and television industries. They also reflect critically on changes in the workplace brought about by corporate conglomeration and globalization. Rather than offer publicity-friendly anecdotes by marquee celebrities, Voices of Labor presents off-screen observations about the everyday realities of Global Hollywood. Ranging across job categories—from showrunner to make-up artist to location manager—this collection features voices of labor from Los ...

The Limitations of Household Surveys: Methodological Considerations in the Selection of the Unit of Analysis (Social Development Series)

by Rodolfo Tello

One of the most widely used methods of socioeconomic data collection employed by international development and environmental conservation organizations is household surveys. The information gathered in such surveys is frequently used to support a variety of arguments, but the methodological aspects of these surveys are rarely discussed. The anthropological literature on households, however, has extensively shown the variability and complexity of the definition and conformation of households, questioning their adequacy as a unit of statistical analysis in survey research. This short book further explores this issue by analyzing the implications of household variability on the data collection procedures and the accuracy of survey measurements that use the household as a unit of analysis. Tak...

by Niccolo Machiavelli and Lars Blackmore-020edt

Niccolò Machiavelli was an Italian Renaissance historian, politician, diplomat, philosopher, humanist, and writer. He has often been called the founder of modern political science.

November 7, 1974

As she entered her home in Milledgeville, Georgia, all Ellen Carr probably had on her mind was going to bed. She was a registered nurse who worked a night shift, and although the small family welcomed the money, the job was a demanding one.

Inside, the house was unnaturally quiet. She found that odd. Her husband, forty-five-year-old businessman Carswell Carr and fifteen-year-old daughter Amanda usually greeted her when she came home from the hospital.

That wasn’t the only sign that something ...

If Scotland Goes

by Financial Times

The FT’s latest ebook is a guide to what would happen if Scotland were to vote for independence in a referendum in September 2014. While the outcome is far from certain, a yes vote would have a profound effect not only on the 5.3m people of Scotland, but also on the economic future and fundamental character of the UK. We introduce Alex Salmond, the Scottish first minister and driving force behind the independence campaign. We examine the difficult economic issues, led by an independent Scotland’s choice of currency, and the potential benefits independence would bring for example in a separate immigration policy. We include observations from an expatriate Scot that give a flavour of the personal and social backdrop to the constitutional choice. This collection of articles - a mixture of...

The Quotable Nietzsche

by Friedrich Nietzsche and Lars Blackmore-020edt

Friedrich Nietzsche was a German philosopher, cultural critic, poet, philologist, and Latin and Greek scholar whose work has exerted a profound influence on Western philosophy and modern intellectual history. He began his career as a classical philologist before turning to philosophy. He became the youngest ever to hold the Chair of Classical Philology at the University of Basel in 1869, at the age of 24. Nietzsche resigned in 1879 due to health problems that plagued him most of his life, and he completed much of his core writing in the following decade. In 1889, at age 44, he suffered a collapse and a complete loss of his mental faculties. He lived his remaining years in the care of his mother (until her death in 1897), and then with his sister Elisabeth Förster-Nietzsche, and died in 19...

DNA Citizenship Test: Nationalism & DACA Dreamers

Esteban has moved back and forth between New York and Mexico since before he can remember. He is interested in becoming a pro baseball player but understands that unless a scout sees him pitch he won’t get a shot. His fastball is a little too slow for the Pros and lacks that pin-point accuracy but he is a southpaw and every team needs a left-handed pitcher. Other options - more realistic, include joining the Army or to go as far as he can in school. Maybe baseball could grant him a scholarship. He is popular, equally with the girls and the boys but does not seem to find his luck with girls because he is nervous about all the rules of dating – unsure how to behave. Light skinned with brown hair, people mistake who he is when going on interviews because they think someone with his name ...

Consciousness and Moral Status (Routledge Focus on Philosophy)

by Joshua Shepherd

It seems obvious that phenomenally conscious experience is something of great value, and that this value maps onto a range of important ethical issues. For example, claims about the value of life for those in Permanent Vegetative State (PVS); debates about treatment and study of disorders of consciousness; controversies about end-of-life care for those with advanced dementia; and arguments about the moral status of embryos, fetuses, and non-human animals arguably turn on the moral significance of various facts about consciousness. However, though work has been done on the moral significance of elements of consciousness, such as pain and pleasure, little explicit attention has been devoted to the ethical significance of consciousness.In this book Joshua Shepherd presents a systematic accoun...

Championed by behavioral economists and the World Bank, conditional cash transfer (CCT) programs are praised as efficient mechanisms for changing poor people's behavior. While rooted in good intentions and dripping with the rhetoric of social inclusion, CCT programs' successes ring hollow, based solely on metrics for children’s attendance at school and health appointments. Looking beyond these statistics reveals a host of hidden costs for the ...
