Resurgent Asia: Diversity in Development
By Deepak Nayyar (9780198849513) WIDER Studies in Development Economics
An Open Access title, authored by the UNU-WIDER project director of ‘Asian Transformations’.
"In this magisterial work, Deepak Nayyar discusses one of the most important socio-economic phenomena in human history - the (re-)rise of Asia since the 1950s. Based on a deep understanding of history, Nayyar provides a most profound analysis of this momentous event and a most thoughtful contemplation of the future of the region - and the world. His analysis is panoramic in scope but never loses sight of the diversity of the process and is always concerned with the welfare of real people. A singular achievement." - Ha-Joon Chang, University of Cambridge.

Meanwhile, several exciting new publications hot off the press to share with you this month:
"Alan Middleton’s landmark book is a longitudinal study of artisans, entrepreneurs and precarious family firms in Quito, one of the two major cities in Ecuador. He relates his research to the global literature on economic development, informality, regulation, micro-enterprise, micro-credit and social capital, and he exposes the failings of many famous authors who have made grand assertions on the basis of superficial studies. Covering the 40 years from 1975 to 2015, the research is innovative and multi-faceted, giving us a detailed understanding of how family and home-based enterprises respond to dramatic changes in national economies and government policies." --Ray Bromley, Professor of Geography, Planning and Latin American Studies, State University of New York at Albany, USA
CORRUPTION IN ARGENTINA: TOWARDS AN INSTITUTIONAL APPROACH
BY NATALIA A. VOLOSIN
"Argentina has had a massive corruption problem for two centuries. Today, as in much of the rest of South America, administrative procurement and infrastructural contracts feature over-invoicing, kickbacks, and more. Volosin relentlessly shines bright light on these abuses of the public purse. But even more intrepidly and importantly, she shows how Argentines can beat back corruption. Citizens can regain control, she argues, by linking human rights protection to anticorruption civil and legal actions. This is a bold and important book." --Robert I. Rotberg, Harvard Kennedy School, USA, author of The Corruption Cure and editor of Corruption in Latin America
This book explores the sex lives of women with disabilities in Nepal, showing that many women suffer more than men despite prevailing disability policies that emphasize nondiscrimination against people with disabilities. It also argues that far from general perceptions of women as asexual, women with disabilities are capable of leading highly creative and fulfilling sexual lives.
Using critical sexual theory and postcolonial studies as critical frameworks, the book investigates the narratives of authors with disabilities, exploring policy gaps and the need for supportive gender and sexual policies through the words of those affected.
Providing important insights into sex and disability within the context of the Global South, this book will be of interest not only to researchers working on Nepal but also to scholars across gender studies, disability studies, international development, and postcolonialism.
