Yokoi-Arai, Mamiko
Drawing on a range of material including exploration of international standards and "best practices" in banking and finance, the experience of the US and the UK in planning and implementing reform measures, and the theoretical literature analyzing financial crises and what causes them, this text analyzes the specific financial reforms in four Asian countries: Japan, Indonesia, South Korea and Thailand. Included are "lessons to be learned" about crisis detection, containment and prevention. During the course of the analysis, the author reveals fundamental policy areas where meaningful and effective reform can take place. 365pp.

Gilbert, Alan
Previous owner's signature on ffep.This ambitious and sweeping book presents a powerful argument against moral relativism and in favor of the objectivity of a theory of democratic individuality. Unlike much recent work in this field, the book does not simply adumbrate such a view. Rather, it develops the parallels between various versions of scientific and moral realism, and then reinterprets the history and internal logic of democratic theory, maintaining, for example, that the abolition of slavery represents genuine moral progress. The book also recasts the clashes between Marxist and Weberian, radical and liberal sociologies in the light of these moral claims, and sketches the institutions of a radical democracy.510pp.

Falk, Richard A.
In his clear-sighted, humane, and provocative way, Richard Falk calls for a revolution in thinking about the future of world order. "Explorations at the Edge of Time" develops the idea that a major cultural shift from modernism to post modernism is under way, creating both new difficulties and new opportunities in the domain of global public policy. The author observes, 'A post modem possibility implies the human capacity to transcend the violence, poverty, ecological decay, oppression, injustice, and secularism of the modern world'. Recognizing that the concepts of 'progress' and 'development' have changed due to the breakdown of the modernist consensus, Falk contends that most problems have transnational dimensions. He proposes a commitment to grassroots globalism, and he challenges aspiring 'citizen pilgrims' to think and act in ways that will enhance their feeling of identity with the rest of creation. Falk's 'rooted utopianism' challenges our political imagination in relation to pressing global problems and helps forge an overall vision of the future. What is at stake is the building of political understanding amidst the appreciation of unity and diversity for a hopeful entry upon the 21st Century. N.B. Some pencil annotations. Head and tail of spine and corners of boards slightly bumped. Slight mark to ffep. 255pp.
