    Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2009; US$ 14.99

    In the past fifty years, more than $1 trillion in development-related aid has been transferred from rich countries to Africa. Has this assistance improved the lives of Africans? No. In fact, across the continent, the recipients of this aid are not better off as a result of it, but worse?much worse. In Dead Aid , Dambisa Moyo describes the state... more...

  • The New Extractivismby Henry Veltmeyer; James Petras

    Zed Books 2014; US$ 29.95

    In a primary commodities boom spurred on by the rise of China, countries the world over are turning to the extraction and export of natural resources as an antidote to the global recession.

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 125.00

  • Gendering Globalization on the Groundby Gay Young

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 125.00

    How has globalization worked for women working on the frontlines of neoliberalism on the Mexico-US border? This border divides "US" from "Others," and produces social inequalities that form a site where marginalized border women encounter the othering power of neoliberalism and confront inequalities of gender and class. Within this context, a critical... more...

  • Development Projects Observedby Albert O. Hirschman; Cass R. Sunstein; Michele Alacevich

    Brookings Institution Press 2014; US$ 18.00

    Originally published in 1967, the modest and plainly descriptive title of Development Projects Observed is deceptive. Today, it is recognized as the ultimate volume of Hirschman's groundbreaking trilogy on development, and as the bridge to the broader social science themes of his subsequent writings. Though among his lesser-known works, this unassuming... more...

  • Des outils pour le changementby Nasser A. Tanimoune; Henry Veltmeyer; Denise Veilleux

    Les Presses de l'Université d'Ottawa 2014; US$ 44.99

    Si la lutte mondiale contre la pauvreté n'est pas encore gagnée après plus de 30 ans d'efforts concertés, c'est que le projet même du développement comporte de graves lacunes.

    Edward Elgar Publishing 2014; US$ 40.00
