    Edward Elgar Publishing 2014; US$ 40.00

    ‘One of the fundamental features of the financial system in most small island developing countries is the existence of oligopolistic banking systems. While economists have, for some time now, been working on developing models to explain the behaviour of firms in such market structures, this book is unique as it applies these tools to monetary... more...

  • Boom Townsby Stephen Walters

    Stanford University Press 2014; US$ 27.95

    American cities, once economic and social launch pads for their residents, are all too often plagued by poverty and decay. One need only to look at the ruins of Detroit to see how far some once-great cities have fallen, or at Boston and San Francisco for evidence that such decline is reversible. In Boom Towns , Stephen J.K. Walters diagnoses the... more...

  • African Industrial Development and EU Cooperationby Francis A.S.T. Matambalya

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 155.00

    Of the 54African states, only South Africa is categorised by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) amongst industrialised countries. The economic activities in Africa are still dominated by the production and trade of agricultural and mineral commodities. This situation is in spite of the longstanding Africa--European Union... more...

  • Incomplete Streetsby Stephen Zavestoski; Julian Agyeman

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 51.95

    The ?Complete Streets' concept and movement in urban planning and policy has been hailed by many as a revolution that aims to challenge the auto-normative paradigm by reversing the broader effects of an urban form shaped by the logic of keeping automobiles moving. By enabling safe access for all users, Complete Streets promise to make cities more... more...

  • The Politics of Carbon Marketsby Benjamin Stephan; Richard Lane

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 145.00

    The carbon markets are in the middle of a fundamental crisis - a crisis marked by collapsing prices, fleeing actors, and ever increasing greenhouse gas levels. Yet carbon trading remains at the heart of global attempts to respond to climate change. Not only this, but markets continue to proliferate - particularly in the Global South. The Politics... more...

  • From the Pit to the Marketby Diane Frost

    Boydell & Brewer Group Ltd 2014; US$ 29.15

    Diamonds have played an important role in the political economy of Sierra Leone, as was highlighted by the use of 'conflict' or 'blood' diamonds in the decade-long civil war.

  • Nature, Choice and Social Powerby Erica Schoenberger

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 48.95

    We are at an environmental impasse. Many blame our personal choices about the things we consume and the way we live. This is only part of the problem. Different forms of social power - political, economic and ideological - structure the choices we have available. This book analyses how we make social and environmental history and why we end up where... more...

  • The Informal Economy in Developing Countriesby Jean-Pierre Cling; Stéphane Lagrée; Mireille Razafindrakoto; François Roubaud

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 155.00

    Informality is ubiquitous in most developing countries. Understanding the informal economy is therefore of utmost importance from a political, economic and social point of view. Paradoxically, despite its economic importance, knowledge is extremely limited regarding the informal economy. It remains largely unrecognized by researchers, is neglected... more...

  • Conflict, Peace, Security and Developmentby Helen Hintjens; Dubravka Zarkov

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 135.00

    Whilst classical approaches linked development with peace, security has become central to understandings of both war and peacetime. This book uniquely reflects on how to deal with the convergence of war and peace in the context of global economic and geo-political development. It addresses methodological challenges in contemporary approaches to conflict,... more...
