International Development: Ideas, Experience, and Prospects

Thinking on development informs and inspires the actions of people, organisations, and states in their continuous effort to invent a better world. This volume examines the ideas behind development: their origins, how they have changed and spread over time, and how they may evolve over the coming decades. It also examines how the real-life experiences of different countries and organisations have been inspired by, and contributed to, thinking on development. The extent to which development 'works' depends in part on particular local, historical, or institutional contexts.

The End of the Developmental State?

This book brings together leading scholars of development to assess the current status of the ‘developmental state’ in several developing and transitional economies of South Korea, Taiwan, Ireland, the United Kingdom, China, South Africa, Brazil and India. Has the concept of the developmental state become outmoded? The authors would suggest not. However, they do argue that the historical trajectories of developmental states in Asia, Latin America, Africa and Europe suggest all too clearly that the concept must be re-examined critically and creatively.

Can GM Technology End Hunger in Africa?

For centuries, biotechnology has been used to modify food for human consumption. In recent decades, scientists have created transgenic crops, (2) which are widely promoted as solutions to world hunger. Commonly cultivated genetically-modified (GM) crops exhibit traits such as pest resistance, herbicide tolerance, or both. (3) Other traits, such as drought resistance, nutrient enrichment and enhanced robustness lead to further improvements in food productivity and quality.

Cereal Crops: Guide to Identifying and Managing Nutrient Deficiencies in Cereal Crops

'Cereal Crops: Guide to Identifying and Managing Nutrient Deficiencies in Cereal' is a 50-page field guide (8 1/2 x 11 in. size, wire-o bound) designed to describe the underlying causes of nutrient deficiencies in maize, wheat, rice, sorghum, pearl millet, and barley, with tips on how they might be prevented or remedied.

Better Crops With Plant Food

Few publications available today can claim the longevity of Better Crops with Plant Food (BC), the quarterly publication of the International Plant Nutrition Institute. The magazine originated in 1923. It is not easy to describe this unique magazine. With an identity somewhere between an agronomic research journal and a marketing information series, BC provides a steady vehicle for reporting news from research related to nutrient management.
