Privatizing Poland : baby food, big business, and the remaking of labor by Elizabeth C Dunn( )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in English and held by 850 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using as a case study of the Alima baby food factory on Rzeszow, this volume chronicles the process of reshaping the Polish economy. The new American owners decided they needed not only to reorganize production, but the workforce, who were to have a new capitalist-orientated identity
Civil society : challenging western models by C. M Hann( )

21 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 697 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The term 'civil society' has in recent years enjoyed something of a vogue. Social scientists in many countries have enthusiastically endorsed it as an ideal model of social organization, but from an anthropological point of view this seems odd. How can an elusive idea that is clearly European in origin - and which, on closer scrutiny, throws little light even on the current social realities in Europe - gain the status of a universal perspective model?" "Civil society is often presented as a distinct private sphere and equated with the voluntary or non-governmental sector. The contributors to Civil Society challenge such narrow definitions in the light of ethnographic research. They argue for a broader understanding of civil society, encompassing a range of everyday social practices, often elusive power relations and the many material constraints that influence shared moralities and ideologies." "Drawing on case materials from the USA, Britain, four of the former communist countries of Eastern Europe, Turkey and the Middle East, Indonesia, China and Japan, the studies presented here demonstrate the contribution that anthropology can make to the current debate in the social sciences. They also add up to an exciting renewal of the agenda for political anthropology."--Jacket
No path home : humanitarian camps and the grief of displacement by Elizabeth C Dunn( )

9 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For more than 60 million displaced people around the world, humanitarian aid has become a chronic condition. No Path Home describes its symptoms in detail. Elizabeth Cullen Dunn shows how war creates a deeply damaged world in which the structures that allow people to occupy social roles, constitute economic value, preserve bodily integrity, and engage in meaningful daily practice have been blown apart. After the Georgian war with Russia in 2008, Dunn spent sixteen months immersed in the everyday lives of the 28,000 people placed in thirty-six resettlement camps by official and nongovernmental organizations acting in concert with the Georgian government. She reached the conclusion that the humanitarian condition poses a survival problem that is not only biological but also existential. In No Path Home, she paints a moving picture of the ways in which humanitarianism leaves displaced people in limbo, neither in a state of emergency nor able to act as normal citizens in the country where they reside"--

The bureaucracy of nature: How integrated resource management excludes the poor by Lucas C Ward( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation makes the case that local people do not benefit from IRM. Under IRM, the local inhabitants of globally significant watersheds and biodiverse landscapes are systematically excluded from the rights and entitlements associated with IRM governance schemes. In fact, the IRM model of "good governance" serves as a tool to rule local people in ways that disadvantages them
Losing value: The problem of humanitarian order in a Georgian IDP camp by Austin Cowley( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why is humanitarianism unable to deliver value to the people receiving its aid? During the 2008 Russo-Georgian war, approximately 26,000 people were displaced from South Ossetia into Georgia. In the wake of this disaster, the Georgian government began constructing new settlements for internally displaced people (IDPs) with the help of Western aid agencies. Although these housing projects were intended to create a new sense of community among IDPs, it was soon clear that the residents there felt trapped by their surroundings. As a result, IDPs viewed the settlements as temporary shelters rather than permanent residents. Therefore, what was originally promoted as a new home for IDPs was more accurately regarded as camp

The Effects of Iconic Presentation on Individuals( )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis investigated whether individuals interpreted iconic graphs differently than traditional graphs. A literature review revealed a lack of current research concerning iconic graphs. Using guidelines previously created for high-integrity graphics, a timed, pretest-posttest experiment was developed to compare the impressions rendered by both traditional and iconic graphs to determine whether men and women interpret the two types of graphs in the same way. It was also used to determine whether traditional bar graphs or iconic graphs were preferred by the subjects. Ninety-nine subjects, all employees of the Royal Australian Air Force/ United States Air Force, or defense contractors, were involved in the experiment. Through the use of the Mann- Whitney U Test, it was determined that the method of presentation did not affect an individual's interpretation of the graph. Individuals did, however, prefer the traditional methods of presentation. It was also determined that gender did not have an affect on an individual's ability to interpret a graph
The economics of land tenure and agricultural performance in the Mnasra Region of Morocco by Abdelmajid Benabdellah( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Most of the literature on land tenure in developing countries asserts that agricultural performance is negatively affected by indigenous land tenure systems and farm fragmentation. This study is the first empirical test of these assertions for a North African country and is based on primary data collected from 841 plots on 131 farms in the Mnasra region of northwestern Morocco. The data analysis was designed to meet the following study objectives: (1) to analyze the prevailing indigenous and modern land tenure systems; (2) to determine the effects of tenure security on farm investment, input use, and agricultural productivity; and (3) to examine the impact of farm fragmentation on agricultural productivity. The results indicate that indigenous land tenure has evolved toward increasing privatization. Estimation of an OLS model revealed that farm fragmentation has no impact on agricultural productivity. In fact, farm fragmentation may be an appropriate response to the farmer's needs to achieve ecological diversity, handle labor shortages, and manage risk. Estimation of a 2SLS structural model indicated that land tenure security has a positive effect on long-term investments, but no direct impact on medium-term investment, input use, or agricultural productivity. However, tenure security does exert an indirect positive influence on input use and agricultural productivity through its effect on long-term investment. Policy implications of the study include the finding that consolidation and titling programs cannot be expected to automatically increase agricultural productivity
