Industrialization and development( Book )

14 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Technological change, restructuring of industrial production and the international division of labour - all mean that developing countries are caught up in a global process of industrialization. This book is about understanding both the positive and negative aspects of this process in developing countries." "The book is arranged in two parts. The first is about the international economy. It analyses global trends in industrialization, discusses the debt crisis, looks in detail at two relatively successful Third World industrializers (Brazil and South Korea) and then outlines the economic theories which inform our understanding of industrialization and development." "The second part of the book takes a different cut through the issues. It explores specific aspects of industrialization - technology, gender relations, culture and the environment. These not only merit study in their own right but are also used to bring out some of the limitations of orthodox interpretations of industrialization and development." "The book's 11 chapters are written by specialist authors using key questions, diagrams, tables, photographs and summaries to illustrate and clarify the text. It will be invaluable to undergraduate and sixth form students of development studies, geography, history, economics, anthropology or international politics. It will be particularly useful to development practitioners, such as those joining the staff of official development agencies or nongovernmental organizations."--Jacket
From followers to leaders : managing technology and innovation in newly industrialized countries by Naushad Forbes( Book )

19 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This textbook is the result of ten years of teaching international technology management to managers and engineers (at Stanford University) and managing technology in a successful medium-sized firm in India. If one's firm is not IBM or Intel or Hewlett Packard or Glaxo or Microsoft, and has no expectation of pushing forward the frontiers of industrial knowledge, there is surprisingly little experience to draw on. This book expects to fill that gap. It argues that succeeding as a follower-firm requires learning from many experiences and avoiding simplistic "how-to" approaches that prescribe one best practice. It argues that there are many "leading edges" and that they appear in the most unlikely places. The book contains major case studies from many different firms in 12 countries in five continents, in industry segments as diverse as pharmaceuticals, software, garments, beer and steel. They show that successful experiences can arise anywhere in the world
