Kenya : monitoring living conditions and consumption patterns by Judith Heyer( Book )

8 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present study constitutes part of the work undertaken by the Institute in response to the resolution adopted by the General Assembly at its fortieth session requesting the Secretary-General of the United Nations to "prepare a report on patterns of consumption and related socio-economic indicators ... based on the work done by relevant bodies in the United Nations system and in particular the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development". This study is an admirable survey and evaluation of the impressive range of data available in Kenya on living conditions. The author provides a useful account of the available statistics in such areas as demography, food, health, education, housing and basic amenities, communication, participation, employment, personal security and leisure, recreation and entertainment
Indian capitalism in development by Barbara Harriss-White( Book )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explores various aspects of contemporary capitalism in India. Using field research at a local level to engage with larger issues, it raises questions about the varieties and processes of capitalism, and about the different roles played by the state. With its focus on India, the book demonstrates the continuing relevance of the comparative political economy of development for the analysis of contemporary capitalism. Beginning with an exploration of capitalism in agriculture and rural development, it goes on to discuss rural labour, small town entrepreneurs, and technical change and competition in rural and urban manufacturing, highlighting the relationships between agricultural and non-agricultural firms and employment. An analysis of processes of commodification and their interaction with uncommodified areas of the economy makes use of the 'knowledge economy' as a case study. Other chapters look at the political economy of energy as a driver of accumulation in contradiction with both capital and labour, and at how the political economy of policy processes regulating energy highlights the fragmentary nature of the Indian state. Finally, a chapter on the processes and agencies involved in the export of wealth argues that this plays a crucial role in concealing the exploitation of labour in India
