Fertility Decline in Developing Countries, 1960-1997: An Annotated Bibliography

With the emergence of fertility declines in the greater part of the developing world, study of the phenomenon has increased profoundly over the last three decades, and a voluminous amount of literature has emerged. Yet our knowledge of the decline is scattered in numerous publications, making sources difficult to find. This bibliography provides a guide to the literature on fertility decline in Latin America, Asia, and Sub-Saharan Africa. It will be an invaluable asset for population experts and students wishing to do research on fertility decline. Covering the literature from 1960 to 1997, the book draws on extensive sources including books, articles in leading population journals, research papers, and dissertations. The opening chapter covers the literature on theories and concepts underlying fertility decline. The next three chapters are devoted to the major geographical areas-Latin America, Asia, and Sub-Saharan Africa-and the final chapter looks at general literature on fertility declines in developing countries.

Service Robert End of the Cold War. 1985 - 1991

The Cold War had seemed like a permanent fixture in global politics, and until its denouement, no Western or Soviet politician foresaw that the stand-off between the two superpowers - after decades of struggle over every aspect of security, politics, economics and ideas - would end in their lifetimes. Even after March 1985 when Mikhail Gorbachev became the leader of the Soviet Union it was not preordained that global nuclear Armageddon could or would be averted peaceably. But just four years later, the Berlin Wall was dismantled and perestroika spread throughout the former Soviet bloc. It was a sea change in world history, which resulted in the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Drawing on pioneering archival research, Robert Service's gripping new investigation of the final years of the Cold War pinpoints the astonishing relationships among President Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev, Secretary of State George Shultz and the USSR's last Foreign Affairs Minister, Eduard Shevardnadze, who found a way to cooperate during times of extraordinary change around the world. The story is of American pressure and Soviet long-term decline and over-stretch. The End of the Cold War shows how that small, skillful group of statesmen were determined to end the Cold War on their watch. In the process, they irreversibly transformed the global geopolitical landscape. Authoritative, compelling and meticulously researched, this is political history at its best.

Paul Katzaroff The Reluctant Traveler. MEMOIRS OF WORLD WAR TWO

This is a must-read for World War II buffs!The narrative was written from the perspective of an Eastern European youngster growing up on the losing side of the conflict during the war years.This is a saga that spans Paris in the 1930s to Sofia, Bulgaria’s capital, in May 1940, just prior to the victorious Nazi armies that paraded in Paris on June 14, 1940.At the time of their arrival in Sofia, Bulgaria remained neutral. On March 1, 1941, Bulgaria joined the Axis and later on declared war on the USA and Great Britain. That action invited the systematic bombing of Sofia, resulting in the family having to relocate to a safer location. The chosen location was in what used to be Northern Greece, a city called Serres, where the family lived until the fall of 1944 when the German armies were forced to retreat, which meant that the family had to move back to Sofia. At the end of the war, the family decided to leave Bulgaria as soon as possible. In spite of many obstacles, the family was able to reunite in Prague and, from there, spent some time in a couple of displaced persons (DP) camps in Rome and Naples. Eventually, they sailed from Naples to Buenos Aires and five years later, flew to New York City, the final desired destination.

Luis Zegarra Institutions, Economic Development and Early Banking in Latin America

This book analyzes the factors that affected the development of the banking sector in Latin America from 1850 to 1930. One of the most striking features of Latin America during this period was the very limited extent of banking development. Perhaps the most common explanation for some Latin American countries is that restrictive bank laws established high barriers to entry and discouraged the formation of banks and the provision of banking services. In this book, however, I show that liberal bank laws did not necessarily lead to highly developed banking systems, and that a low demand for banking services was a significant cause for the stunted development of the banking sector in most of Latin America during this era. Using annual data for seven Latin American countries for this period, I find that the long-run supply of banking services largely responded to changes in the demand for banking services. Country-case studies for Argentina and Peru strongly support these findings. In these two countries, the banking sector responded to the demand for banking sector by opening bank offices and providing banking services in response to positive demand shocks.

Marc Penfield Horoscopes of Latin America

Horoscopes of Latin America is Marc Penfield's fifth book on countries of the world, each arranged by continent. This encyclopedic tome is divided into four sections: Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America and South America. It's the definitive work on 40 countries and colonies that make up this part of the world.Most countries, except the Caribbean, declared their independence from Spain or Portugal over a brief period of time. Some became monarchies (Mexico and Brasil) while others joined forces with other countries for a while. The nations of Central America (except Panama) bear close scrutiny as they gained their freedom at the same moment in time; their birth dates are identical, but when the charts are relocated there are some major differences, especially for Costa Rica.Marc Penfield outlines the basic character of the Latin American people by delineating the chart for Isabela, the oldest European settlement in the western hemisphere. Charts for over 130 cities have been included, most of them for their founding date, a few for their charter date. Progressed aspects to the angles for each city and country are shown, which makes this book a valuable teaching tool for students learning the mundane, or geopolitical, branch of astrology.

This study analyses from the perspective of heritage and identity, two interventions in the city of Valparaiso in Chile, which cause conflict between the state and the civic society. It establishes the importance of governance and civic society participation in the use of heritage for contemporary purposes, and discusses the problematic of the institutional and policy framework in the creation of strategies coherent with the local culture.This research analyses the case study of the city of Valparaiso, a city facing a longterm economic decline that was declared World Heritage Site in 2003 as part of the strategies to revitalize the city and improve its economy. The development strategies that were established to improve the economic potential of Valparaiso, have found themselves in conflict with what is argued to be the identity of the city. This identityis tightly connected to the origins of the city, but it seems difficult to engrain within development strategies.The identity of Valparaiso as a city port is connected to its origin; Valparaiso first was a port and then was a city...

Joseph A. Altsheler The Civil War Novels 5-Before the Dawn. a Story of the Fall of Richmond

A story of war, love and espionage during the Civil WarAlthough this book is not strictly one of Altsheler's American Civil War series, Leonaur have chosen to include it within its collection of the authors novels on this popular topic. The subject matter of the story is still, of course, the great war between the states. The action takes place in and around Richmond, the beleaguered Confederate capital, in the closing stages of the war as the Union forces press ever closer. A young Confederate officer is given leave to visit his family and-after so long on campaign-his eyes are inevitably drawn to the beautiful women of the South. There are old flames to renew his interest, but also an unknown, strange and enigmatic beauty. Is she merely aloof or is there more to this mystery woman? It is clear Union spies are at work in the city. Important documents are missing. Could it be that she is an enemy agent? As attraction turns to love, loyalties are blurred and the action turns to the battlefield, this novel becomes a highly entertaining read and a fitting companion to Altsheler's eight novel Civil War series.

''War and Peace'' in Studio Ghibli Films

This book examines Japanese animation films of Studio Ghibli in terms of war and peace. This research mainly focuses on movies directed by Hayao Miyazaki, a 'Japanese master of animation', who announced his official retirement in September 2013. Through the lens of peace research, the author rediscovered the fact that Miyazaki-related animation films deal with actual wars from the First World War to the 2003 Iraq War. This book investigates the following Studio Ghibli animation movies: 1) Nausica of the Valley of the Wind (1984), 2) Laputa Castle in the Sky (1986), 3) Grave of the Fireflies (1988), 4) Porco Rosso (1992), 5) Howl’s Moving Castle (2004), and 6) The Wind Rises (2013). From a perspective of peace research and international relations, this study analyzes the relevance of the films to the First World War, the Second World War, the Cold War, the War on Terror, as well as some nuclear related issues in the post-3/11 context. Moreover, this book explores the implications of the case studies for peace education so that Studio Ghibli films can be watched as sources for creating the ‘defences of peace’ inside the hearts of audience around the world.

Erckmann-Chatrian The Napoleonic Novels. Volume 2-The Blockade of Phalsburg . the Invasion of France in 1814

Two classic novels of the Napoleonic epochThe events portrayed in these two novels of the Napoleonic period properly fit in time between those of the first volume. They appear together here since each-unlike the other two in this series-is a stand alone work. All of the Erckmann-Chatrian Napoleonic novels form part of the 'National' series which begins in the revolutionary period and extends to include the Franco-Prussian War. The Napoleonic works all concern the period of the fall of the First Empire. In The Blockade of Phalsburg it is 1814 and the allied army is invading France following Napoleon's defeat at Leipzig. War has reached the small walled town of Phalsburg and the inhabitants resolve to defend the city. So the siege begins. The Invasion of France 1814 is another perspective of the invasion as French peasants determine to defend the country from the expected marauding German troops and Cossacks. These are stories of ordinary people forced to come to terms with great events expertly related by perhaps their greatest advocates in fiction.

Karl-Heinz Ignatz Kerscher Peace Education. Ideas for a Postmodern Pedagogy

Fachbuch aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Pädagogik - Der Lehrer / Pädagoge, , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: The worldwide peace demonstrations with millions of participants around the turn of millennium show the desire of a large part of humanity for peace. The activity of hundreds of thousands of young people for peace in Germany is a new phenomenon that can be interpreted in part as a result of decades of peace education in parental homes , kindergartens , schools and colleges.There are voices that recognize Europe as a phalanx , as the spearhead of global peace. It seems to have been an increase in empathy, which also led to the abolition of slavery , to strengthen women 's and children's rights, democracy and the welfare state. The peoples of Europe , including Germany , France, Spain, England, Austria and Russia, which for centuries had war against each other have now met the peace for 65 years . For Steven PINKER war and violence in politics and society overall are on the decline. Never before in the history of mankind violence, murder and war have played such a small role as in our present. Despite 's First and Second World War with its unimaginable suffering of the millions of victims of war , the Holocaust , the atomic bomb victims of Hiroshima and Nagasaki , despite the civil war in Yugoslavia , the war in Iraq, Afghanistan , civil war in Syria PINKER believes in a global reduction of violence and war . He discovered an evolutionary progress of humanity f...

Chandrasekaran Rajiv Green Zone. Imperial Life in the Emerald City

From inside a surreal bubble of pure Americana known as the Green Zone, the US-led Coalition Provisional Authority attempted to rule Iraq following the fall of Saddam Hussein's regime. Drawing on interviews and internal documents, Rajiv Chandrasekaran tells the memorable story of this ill-prepared attempt to build American democracy in a war-torn Middle Eastern country, detailing not only the risky disbanding of the Iraqi army and the ludicrous attempt to train the new police force, but absurdities such as the aide who based Baghdad's new traffic laws on those of the state of Maryland, downloaded from the net, and the twenty-four-year-old who had never worked in finance put in charge of revitalising Baghdad's stock exchange. This is American reportage at its best.

Wells Herbert George The War of the Worlds and the War in the Air

With an Introduction and Notes by Dr Andrew Frayn, Lecturer in Twentieth-Century Literature and Culture at Edinburgh Napier University. In these two compelling novels H.G. Wells imagines terrifying futures in which civilisation itself is threatened. The narrator of The War of the Worlds is quick to discover that what appeared to be a falling star was, in fact, a metallic cylinder landing from Mars. Six million people begin to flee London in panic as tentacled invaders emerge and overpower the city. With their heat-ray, killing machines, black gas, and a taste for fresh human blood, is there anything that can be done to stop the Martians? In The War in the Air, naive but resourceful Bert Smallways is thrilled by speed and fascinated by the new flying machines. His curiosity sweeps him away by accident into a German plan to conquer America, beginning with the destruction of New York. The ease of movement in aerial warfare means that nothing and nobody is safe as Total War erupts, civilisation crumbles, and Bert's hopes of getting back to London to marry his love seem impossibly distant.

Daniel S. Lucks Selma to Saigon. The Civil Rights Movement and the Vietnam War

The civil rights and anti–Vietnam War movements were the two greatest protests of twentieth-century America. The dramatic escalation of U.S. involvement in Vietnam in 1965 took precedence over civil rights legislation, which had dominated White House and congressional attention during the first half of the decade. The two issues became intertwined on January 6, 1966, when the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) became the first civil rights organization to formally oppose the war, protesting the injustice of drafting African Americans to fight for the freedom of the South Vietnamese people when they were still denied basic freedoms at home.Selma to Saigon explores the impact of the Vietnam War on the national civil rights movement. Before the war gained widespread attention, the New Left, the SNCC, and the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) worked together to create a biracial alliance with the potential to make significant political and social gains in Washington. Contention over the war, however, exacerbated preexisting generational and ideological tensions that undermined the coalition, and Lucks analyzes the causes and consequences of this disintegration.This powerful narrative illuminates the effects of the Vietnam War on the lives of leaders such as Whitney Young Jr., Stokely Carmichael, Roy Wilkins, Bayard Rustin, and Martin Luther King Jr., as well as other activists who faced the threat of the military draft along with race-related discrimination and vio...

W. Nikola-Lisa The Men Who Made the Yankees. The Odyssey of the World.s Greatest Baseball Team from Baltimore to the Bronx

W. Nikola-Lisa explores a fascinating corner of baseball history in The Men Who Made the Yankees, which traces the rise of the New York Yankees from the origin of the American League to the Yankees' first world championship title in 1923. Less a history of players, The Men Who Made the Yankees focuses on a handful of powerful club owners and the political and financial pressures that dramatically shaped the arrival of an American League team in New York City. A baseball enthusiast from a young age, Mr. Nikola-Lisa is also the author of Dear Frank: Babe Ruth, the Red Sox, and the Great War, a work of historical fiction set in Boston during the waning days of the first world war.

Tolkien John Ronald Reuel War of the Ring

The War of the Ring takes up the story of The Lord of the Rings with the Battle of the Hornburg and the drowning of Isengard by the Ents, continues with the journey of Frodo, Sam and Gollum to the Pass of Cirith Ungol, describes the war in Gondor, and ends with the parley between Gandalf and the ambassador of the Dark Lord before the Black Gate of Mordor. Unforeseen developments that would become central to the narrative are seen at the moment of their emergence: the palantir bursting into fragments on the stairs of Orthanc, its nature as unknown to the author as to those who saw it fall, or the entry of Faramir into the story.

The Naked and the Dead

Based on Mailer's own experience of military service in the Philippines during World War Two, The Naked and the Dead' is a graphically truthful and shattering portrayal of ordinary men in battle. First published in 1949, as America was still basking in the glories of the Allied victory, it altered forever the popular perception of warfare. Focusing on the experiences of a fourteen-man platoon stationed on a Japanese-held island in the South Pacific during World War II, and written in a journalistic style, it tells the moving story of the soldiers' struggle to retain a sense of dignity amidst the horror of warfare, and to find a source of meaning in their lives amisdst the sounds and fury of battle.

Colin Neumeyer Kut Vonnegut American Exile

Underlying all of the moral, social, and political issues in Kurt Vonnegut's narratives is the one human condition that exposes the lack of morality in human beings the most, war. For Vonnegut, everything is influenced by war and WWII is the defining moment for his generation, America, and the world. His portrait of post-WWII America is a cynical one due to his experiences and the war's lingering effects on everything he saw thereafter. The epoch of his literary career came in 1969 with the publication of Slaughterhouse-Five, his postmodern anti-war masterpiece, which centers on the firebombing of Dresden, Germany. The focus of this analysis of Vonnegut's work is on his development of the postmodern war narrative in his early literary career. The literary trail leading up to Slaughterhouse-Five is an interesting and important sequence in postmodern literature because it shows, among many things, how he had to adapt and go beyond the traditional confines of available literary conventions to render his vision of a post-war humanity.

Revisiting 20th Century Wars.

The collection at hand is a subjective, but representative selection of articles in German and English on the representation of bellicose acts in modern times.The wide range of wars treated in these essays begins with the Canudos Civil War in the Brazilian state of Bahia in 1896-97. The various articles include new perceptions and interpretations of the First World War, the Spanish Civil War of 1936-39, the Holocaust, the Second World War, the Korean War, the wars in the former Portuguese colonies of Africa, and the Balkan Wars of the last decade of the 20th century, and close with the current war in Afghanistan, which began in 2001. The wars discussed, although having different origins, such as national pride, territorial expansion, fanatic religiousness, ethnic and racial conflicts, great social differences, the process of decolonization, and terrorism, have one thing in common: their significant and constant repercussion in the print and broadcast media over a long period of time. These modern wars have therefore often been the object of new readings and reinterpretations until today. The history of these wars could not have been written without the development of journalism, the mass media, and new technologies of war reporting in the 20th century.

Mohamed Dalmar Abdurahman Monetary and Exchange Rate Policies 1960-2001

Much has been written about Somalia in the last fourteen years; about its history, politics, civil war, famine, clans, warlords, the failure of the U.S. intervention, but little has been written about the monetary aspect of the Somali crisis. The author, a former director general of Central Bank of Somalia, contends that it was the currency chaos that contributed to the fall of the Somali government in 1991, and that still keeps the civil war going on in the country. He provides some insight into the past monetary experience of Somalia and offers a straightforward solution: take the privilege of printing money away from the hands of the Somali political leaders, and then you will have stability in the country.
