Engineering Revolution University of Pennsylvania Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The nonviolent overthrow of Balkan dictator Slobodan Milosevic in October 2000 is celebrated as democracy promotion at its best. This perceived political success has been used to justify an industry tasked with "exporting" democracy to countries like Belarus, Ukraine, Tunisia, and Egypt. Yet the true extent of the West's involvement in Milosevic's overthrow remained unclear until now. Engineering Revolution uses declassified CIA documents and personal interviews with diplomats, aid providers, and policymakers, as well as thousands of pages of internal NGO documents, to explore what proponents consider one of the greatest successes of the democracy promotion enterprise. Through its in-depth examination of the two decades that preceded and followed Milosevic's unseating, as well as its critical look at foreign assistance targeting Serbia's troubled political party landscape, Engineering Revolution upends the conventional wisdom on the effectiveness of democracy promotion in Serbia. Marlene Spoerri demonstrates that democracy took root in Serbia in spite of, not because of Western intervention-in fact, foreign intervention often hurt rather than helped Serbia's tenuous transition to democracy. As Western governments recalibrate their agendas in the wake of the Arab Spring, this timely book offers important lessons for the democracy promotion community as it sets its sights on the Middle East, former Soviet Union, and beyond.

Eritrea at a Crossroads Lightning Source Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

I congratulate Andebrhan Welde Giorgis on his high quality and extremely informative book that has not only the merit to be an update on the political situation in Eritrea but also asks the pertinent questions on the future of his marvelous country. He does it with tact and success, based on his long experience as freedom fighter, as senior public servant, as Ambassador and his rich experience of Africa. Each country in Africa must be able to determine its own future. Freedom, responsibility, control over its destiny, and solidarity, are the key ideas of the new vision for international cooperation that will help ensure the sustainability of the development process. The urgent need to create a democratic government resonates throughout the book. Good governance, respect for human rights, principles of democracy, and rule of law are essential universal values underpinning it. Andebrhan is one of those men, visionaries, and open to dialogue, reform and change. Eritrea at a Crossroads is key to understanding the challenges facing Eritrea and Africa. It is an eye opener on a complex and little understood crisis that is festering in Africa and holding the continent back. The book provides a solid intellectual foundation to understanding the region and will give anyone who wants to build a better future for Africa a great starting point. I congratulate him on this most valuable book which finds its place among all the lovers of Africa. Louis Michel Member of European Parliament, European Commissioner for Development and Humanitarian Aid (2004-2009) and Foreign Minister of Belgium (1999-2004) Freedom fighter, scholar, central banker, diplomat, and now unhappy exile, no-one could be better placed than Andebrhan Welde Giorgis to trace Eritrea's distressing slide from triumph to tragedy. It's a harrowing story, but the author tells it comprehensively, objectively and lucidly in this excellent study. The future can be rescued, as Andebrhan makes clear, but only if the past is understood, and the present confronted -- by decent, concerned Eritreans, acting with the moral, political and economic support of the wider international community. May his voice be heard. Gareth Evans Chancellor, Australian National University; President, International Crisis Group (2000-09) and Foreign Minister of Australia (1988-96) Publisher's website:

Review of the Availability and Quality of Global Demographic Data Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Review of the Availability and Quality of Global Demographic Data: Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Census, Statistics and Postal Personnel of the Committee on Post Office and Civil Service, House of Representatives, One Hundred Third Congress, Second Session, August 2, 1994 The subcommittee met, pursuant to call, at 10:04 a.m., in room 311, Cannon House Office Building, Hon. Thomas C.Sawyer (chairman of the subcommittee) presiding. Members present: Representatives Sawyer and Petri. Member also present: Representative Morella. Mr. Sawyer. Thank you all for being here. The U.N. International Conference on Population and Development next month in Cairo is going to deal with population issues that affect us all in ways that are far broader than the notion of population usually generates among most people, I suspect most places in the world. And yet its effect is very deep and broad. The United States for the first time in some time is in a strong position to provide effective leadership in a wide variety of global population policies. Our commitment will have, I hope, an enormous effect on the outcome of the conference. Population is growing and moving in ways that demand coordinated responses by the international community. We need timely, reliable, and consistent information to understand this kind of rapid change and its consequences. Not only that, but we need that kind of information to support the core issues that underlie the consequences of that change. Often, at least some arenas of global population data are sketchy and of inconsistent quality. Strengthening that data will help us to guide policy decisions. Perhaps just as much, it will help us to measure our own efforts to participate and lead in the world. That ability to measure those consequences is perhaps one of the most difficult things in dealing with questions of foreign aid of any that we face. Let me just mention a few of the issues that are of particular interest to me this morning: We have perhaps the largest number of forced international migrants in the world today of any time since World War II. Despite their relatively small proportion of total world population, their substantially growing numbers have an increasingly significant effect on a broad range of policy consideration. However, information about the number and movement of refugees is inadequate. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Performance of Nations - 2854243037

Performance of Nations Rowman & Littlefield

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Why do some nations fail while others succeed? How can we compare the political capacity of a totalitarian regime to a democracy? Are democracies always more efficient? The Performance of Nations answers these key questions by providing a powerful new tool for measuring governments' strengths and weaknesses. Allowing researchers to look inside countries down to the local level as well as to compare across societies and over time, the book demonstrates convincingly that political performance is the missing link in measuring power and military capability. For the theorist, political performance data helps to fill in the gaps when GDP alone does not explain the outcome of wars. For the practical policy specialist, political performance sheds a bright light on why some governments succeed and some fail, why investments disappear in one province but multiply in another, and why it is easier to promote health programs in one region but not in its neighbor. This groundbreaking book will be an essential resource for scholars, policymakers, and institutions interested in measuring the political capacities of nations and in knowing where foreign aid and investment will be most effective.

Social Capital Construction and Governance in Central Asia - 2862251994

Social Capital Construction and Governance in Central Asia Springer Palgrave Macmillan

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This cutting edge collection focuses on the nature of civil society and its role in facilitating governance in Central Asia, considering local implications related to the concept of social capital and civil society in the Uzbek context. It discusses the complexity of the notion of social capital in post-Soviet Uzbekistan, detailing the challenges and pressures facing the Uzbek people. Challenging prevailing views on post-Soviet political transitions, the book demonstrates that successful transition to democracy and rule of law cannot be accomplished unless the concerns, fears, frustrations and local understandings of the desired political system are heard, registered and carefully interpreted. Offering a comparative study of civil society and social capital in Asia, this collection is a key read not only for scholars and students in civil governance and post-soviet transitions, but also aid agencies, foreign governments, and international organisations working with civil society groups.
