Developmental State Building
71,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This open access book modifies and revitalizes the concept of the ‘developmental state’ to understand the politics of emerging economy through nuanced analysis on the roles of human agency in the context of structural transformation. In other words, there is a revived interest in the ‘developmental state’ concept. The nature of the ‘emerging state’ is characterized by its attitude toward economic development and industrialization. Emerging states have engaged in the promotion of agriculture, trade, and industry and played a transformative role to pursue a certain path of economic development. Their success has cast doubt about the principle of laissez faire among the people in the developing world. This doubt, together with the progress of democratization, has prompted policymakers to discover when and how economic policies should deviate from laissez faire, what prevents political leaders and state institutions from being captured by vested interests, and what induce them to drive economic development. This book offers both historical and contemporary case studies from Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Ethiopia, Kenya, and Rwanda. They illustrate how institutions are designed to be developmental, how political coalitions are formed to be growth-oriented, and how technocratic agencies are embedded in a network of business organizations as a part of their efforts for state building. Yusuke Takagi is Assistant Professor of the National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies (GRIPS), Veerayooth Kanchoochat is Associate Professor of GRIPS and Tetsushi Sonobe is Vice President of GRIPS.

University Unlimited
31,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

From its beginnings Monash has been a 'university in a hurry.' Born on the suburban fringe of Melbourne, it reached outwards rather than gazing inwards. Over its five decades it embraced the challenges of the age of Sputnik, became a hotbed of student radicalism, then took an equally radical turn towards market capitalism to become Australia's largest and most international university, with branches in Italy, Malaysia and South Africa.Its movers and shakers included visionary vice-chancellor Louis Matheson, biologist and stirrer Jock Marshall, Australia's third woman professor Maureen Brunt, historian Ian Turner, student politicians Albert Langer and Peter Costello, writers Don Watson and David Williamson, IVF pioneer Carl Wood, philosopher Peter Singer, broadcaster Jon Faine, buccaneering vice-chancellor Mal Logan and his ill-fated successor, David Robinson.The Monash story shows how universities have transformed Australia since the 1960s. Based on extensive interviews with staff and students, and heavily illustrated, this is an engaging and candid portrait of a great Australian institution.

Doctor Lark
12,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Doctor Lark is Bill Larkworthy, a man with a sharp eye for the humorous side of the human condition. He has had two careers as a doctor, the first a twenty-year stint in the Royal Air Force, the second an equally adventurous and eventful time in Saudi Arabia and Dubai. In more than forty years and a variety of countries, he has treated the great and the good, the fit and the fat, heroes, villains and a fair assortment of life's oddballs, many of whom enliven the pages of his memoir, Doctor Lark. Characters such as the gnome-like undertaker's assistant in Belgium, the stoic Gurkhas in Malaysia, the retired RAF air vice-marshal who carried the Queen's head in his stomach, 'Betty Boobs' who caused mayhem by jogging around the staff compound in Riyadh, the American doctor who enlisted Russian Mafia help to disappear in Moscow... Doctor Lark combines humour with astute observation and comment for an insider's view of military, social and medical developments of the last half century.
