International perspectives in rural sociology by Howard Newby( Book )

Essays which focus on similarities between developed and underdeveloped nations, concentrating on the issues of power and rural social stratification, are contained in this textbook on rural sociology. It is intended for students of rural sociology, including teachers and researchers. In two main parts, the book first deals with rural social change in the advanced industrial world, taking as an underlying theme the evolvement of farming as a capitalist enterprise and the subsequent wide-ranging social changes. Part ii investigates linkages between the developed and underdeveloped world, though it is primarily concerned with the latter, and particularly with the role of the peasantry and the associated problems of hunger and poverty. Each part consists of four essays by authors from Europe and the U.S., and each essay is followed by its list of references. Among the essays in Part I are "The Rural Sociology of Advanced Capitalist Societies" and "Rural Community and Rural Community Power". Part ii contains "Peasant Studies: An Overview" and "Reaching the Rural Poor and the Poorest: a Goal Unmet". The textbook has an index. Though there are no illustrations, two essays contain statistical tables. (Rs)

OECD reviews of tertiary education by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In many OECD countries, tertiary education systems have experienced rapid growth over the last decade. With tertiary education increasingly seen as a fundamental pillar for economic growth, these systems must now address the pressures of a globalising economy and labour market. Within governance frameworks that encourage institutions, individually and collectively, to fulfil multiple missions, tertiary education systems must aim for the broad objectives of growth, full employment and social cohesion. In this context, the OECD launched a major review of tertiary education with the participation of 24 nations. The principal objective of the review is to assist countries in understanding how the organisation, management and delivery of tertiary education can help them achieve their economic and social goals. Japan is one of 14 countries which opted to host a Country Review, in which a team of external reviewers carried out an in-depth analysis of tertiary education policies. This report includes: an overview of Japan's tertiary education system; an account of trends and developments in tertiary education in Japan; an analysis of the strengths and challenges in tertiary education in Japan; and recommendations for future policy development. This review of tertiary education in Japan forms part of the OECD Thematic Review of Tertiary Education, a project conducted between 2004 and 2008 (www.oecd.org/edu/tertiary/review)
