The Big Picture from the Author: T. T. Ram Mohan. This book, a rare blend of academic erudition and elegant writing, is a guide to some of the central themes and debates in the realm of economic policy and the world of business in recent years. A compilation of the author s columns in The Economic Times over a six-year period, it ranges over five broad themes: the financial sector, Indian economy, corporate governance, privatisation and the international economy. The author has added an introductory note that summarises the principal issue in each of the broad themes. He has also interviewed an eminent personality for each theme: Bimal Jalan, T. N. Srinivasan, N. Vaghul, G. V. Ramakrishna and Lawrence White.Basing his arguments on theory as well as empirical evidence, the author takes positions that are often contrarian and critical of the conventional wisdom, but have been vindicated over time. In its advocacy of a non-ideological approach to privatisation in the Indian context and its insistence on the continued relevance of public sector banks, for instance, his writings long anticipated the recent shift in national sentiment on these issues.

The Big Picture from the Author: David Suzuki. Whether he's discussing how to reconcile economy with ecology, why a warmer world will result in more poison ivy, why Britney Spears gets more hits on Google than global warming does, or why we might need to start eating jellyfish for supper, David Suzuki points the direction we must take as a society if we hope to meet the environmental challenges we face in our still-young century. Covering suburban sprawl, sustainable transportation, food shortages, biodiversity, technology, public policy, and more, The Big Picture not only identifies the problems we face but proposes solid, science-based solutions. These engaging essays look beyond environmental challenges to examine the forces that are preventing real change from occurring. Together they tell the story of a species struggling to come to grips with its own biological nature, a nature we must ultimately embrace to live in balance with the systems that sustain us.

State Of Authority from the Author: Joshua Barker. A major realignment is taking place in the way we understand the state in Indonesia. New studies on local politics, ethnicity, the democratic transition, corruption, Islam, popular culture, and other areas hint at novel concepts of the state, though often without fully articulating them. This book captures several dimensions of this shift. One reason for the new thinking is a fresh wind that has altered state studies generally. People are posing new kinds of questions about the state and developing new methodologies to answer them. Another reason for this shift is that Indonesia itself has changed, probably more than most people recognize. It looks more democratic, but also more chaotic and corrupt, than it did during the militaristic New Order of 1966–1998. State of Authority offers a range of detailed case studies based on fieldwork in many different settings around the archipelago. The studies bring to life figures of authority who have sought to carve out positions of power for themselves using legal and illegal means. These figures include village heads, informal slum leaders, district heads, parliamentarians, and others. These individuals negotiate in settings where the state is evident and where it is discussed: coffee houses, hotel lounges, fishing waters, and street-side stalls. These case studies, and the broader trend in scholarship of which they are a part, allow for a new theorization of the state in Indonesia that more adequately addresses the complexity of political life in this vast archipelago nation. State of Authority demonstrates that the state of Indonesia is not monolithic, but is constituted from the ground up by a host of local negotiations and symbolic practices.
