Bangladesh : politics, economics, and civil society by David Lewis( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Relatively little is known or understood about Bangladesh by outsiders. Since its hard-won independence from Pakistan in 1971, it has been ravaged by economic and environmental disasters. Only recently has the country begun to emerge as a fragile, but functioning, parliamentary democracy, relatively self-sufficient in food production and with an economy that has been consistently achieving growth. The story of Bangladesh, told through the pages of this concise and readable book, is a truly remarkable one. By delving into its past, and through an analysis of the economic, political and social changes that have taken place over the last twenty years, the book explains how Bangladesh is becoming of increasing interest to the international community as a portal into some of the key issues of our age: the way globalization affects the world's poorer countries, the long-term effects of the international development industry, the potential risks to people and environment from climate change and the political challenges facing modern Muslim-majority nations. In this way the book offers an important corrective to the view of Bangladesh as a failed state and also sheds light on the lives of a new generation of its citizens."--Page 4 of cover
Popular representations of development : insights from novels, films, television and social media by David Lewis( Book )

9 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although the academic study of development is well established, as is also its policy implementation, less considered are the broader, more popular understandings of development that often shape agendas and priorities, particularly in representative democracies. Through its accessible and provocative chapters, Popular Representations of Development introduces the idea that while the issue of "development"--Defined broadly as problems of poverty and social deprivation, and the various agencies and processes seeking to address these -- is normally one that is discussed by social scientists and policy makers, it also has a wide "popular" dimension. Development is something that can be understood through studying literature, films, and other non-conventional forms of representation. It is also a public issue, one that has ironically been associated with musical movements such as Live Aid and increasingly features in newer media such as blogs and social networking. The book connects the effort to build a more holistic understanding of development issues with an exploration of the diverse public sphere in which popular engagement with development takes place. This book gives students of development studies, media studies and geography as well as students of humanities engaging with global development issues a variety of perspectives from different disciplines to open up this new field for discussion"--Provided by publisher
