Comparing Asian Politics - India, China, and Japan (Hardcover, 4th New edition): Sue Ellen M. Charlton Comparing Asian Politics - India, China, and Japan (Hardcover, 4th New edition)
Sue Ellen M. Charlton
R2,972 Discovery Miles 29 720 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Comparing Asian Politics presents an invaluable comparative examination of politics and government in three Asian nations: India, China, and Japan. The author elucidates the links between politics and each nation's distinctive cultural and historical contexts and demonstrates the intermingling and grafting of Asian traditions with the influence of Western values and institutions. National identity, political cohesion, and socioeconomic change emerge as central to how politics has developed in each nation-state. Also included are focus boxes on political and social issues in other important countries in Asia. The book provides insight into topics such as the significance of constitutions in the political process; the parliamentary system in Asia; the regionalization of politics and the importance of levels of government; the decay of one-party rule; the links between development and democratization; and the impact of globalization. This essential text not only illuminates the politics of India, China, and Japan in relation to one another, it also suggests to readers how their own experience of politics can be informed by understanding the politics and government of these three Asian nations. In this new edition, the author includes a discussion on the recent political changes in China and the election of Xi Jinping in early 2013, the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in 2011, and the recent elections in India.

Women Navigating Globalization - Feminist Approaches to Development (Hardcover): Jana Everett, Sue Ellen M. Charlton Women Navigating Globalization - Feminist Approaches to Development (Hardcover)
Jana Everett, Sue Ellen M. Charlton
R2,101 Discovery Miles 21 010 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This up-to-date text offers a clear and cogent introduction to women in development. Exploring the global structures and processes that impede or support the empowerment of women, Jana Everett and Sue Ellen M. Charlton use a feminist lens to understand contemporary gender roles. Without such a lens, they argue, our understanding of globalization and development is incomplete, resulting in flawed policies that fail to improve the lives of millions of people around the globe. After a set of introductory chapters that conceptually frame the issues, the authors then investigate women's struggles within and against globalization and development through powerful case studies of sex trafficking, water, work, and health. These chapters, by using specific examples, develop the concepts of structure and agency, levels of analysis, and feminist approaches as tools to help students understand the complexities of development and alternative strategies. Through rich interdisciplinary analysis, Everett and Charlton explore the individual and collective strategies women have used to improve their lives under globalization and weigh how effective they have been. Their book will be an essential resource in women's studies, political science, political economy, anthropology, sociology, and development studies.

R1,643 Discovery Miles 16 430 Out of stock

This book provides an in-depth look at the realities of development and development work in the South Indian state of Tamilnadu. Drawing on extensive fieldwork, Moen Mathiot detailed the conditions of poverty facing rural, landless agricultural workers and the social, economic, and political contexts of development. Within these contexts, women and men in grassroots nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) struggle to assist the landless poor. At the same time, these development workers confront their own problems of family pressures, inadequate training, and insufficient resources to carry on their work. Moen Mathiot's book enables us to tap into the mindsets of grassroots development workers-their analysis of the problems, the strategies of change, and the obstacles that prevent them from accomplishing more. As NGOs are utilized to implement more and more development programs, understanding the realities of these workers becomes essential for both scholars and practitioners in the development studies field.
