  • Brilliant and engagingly written, Why Nations Fail answers the question that has stumped the experts for centuries: Why are some nations rich and others poor, divided by wealth and poverty, health and sickness, food and famine?
    Is it culture, the weather, geography? Perhaps ignorance of what the right policies are?
    Simply, no. None of these factors is either definitive or destiny. Otherwise, how to explain why Botswana has become one of the fastest growing countries in the world, while other African nations, such as Zimbabwe, the Congo, and Sierra Leone, are mired in poverty and violence?
    Daron Acemoglu and James Robinson conclusively show that it is man-made political and economic institutions that underlie economic success (or lack of it). Korea, to take just one of their fascinating examples, is a remarkably homogeneous nation, yet the people of North Korea are among the poorest on earth while their brothers and sisters in South Korea are among the richest. The south forged a society that created incentives, rewarded innovation, and allowed everyone to participate in economic opportunities. The economic success thus spurred was sustained because the government became accountable and responsive to citizens and the great mass of people. Sadly, the people of the north have endured decades of famine, political repression, and very different economic institutions--with no end in sight. The differences between the Koreas is due to the politics that created these completely different institutional trajectories.
    Based on fifteen years of original research Acemoglu and Robinson marshall extraordinary historical evidence from the Roman Empire, the Mayan city-states, medieval Venice, the Soviet Union, Latin America, England, Europe, the United States, and Africa to build a new theory of political economy with great relevance for the big questions of today, including:
    - China has built an authoritarian growth machine. Will it continue to grow at such high speed and overwhelm the West?
    - Are America’s best days behind it? Are we moving from a virtuous circle in which efforts by elites to aggrandize power are resisted to a vicious one that enriches and empowers a small minority?
    - What is the most effective way to help move billions of people from the rut of poverty to prosperity? More
    philanthropy from the wealthy nations of the West? Or learning the hard-won lessons of Acemoglu and Robinson’s breakthrough ideas on the interplay between inclusive political and economic institutions?
    Why Nations Fail will change the way you look at--and understand--the world.

  • In this chilling sequel to the best-selling Knight of the Black Rose, factions vie for control of Sithicus as Lord Soth -- darklord and former knight from the Dragonlance world -- fights to keep his reign from crumbling.

Has Kitiara finally returned to Soth, or is this another spectre from the death knight's tragic past?

  • Shortlisted for the Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award 2012.
    Why are some nations more prosperous than others? Why Nations Fail sets out to answer this question, with a compelling and elegantly argued new theory: that it is not down to climate, geography or culture, but because of institutions. Drawing on an extraordinary range of contemporary and historical examples, from ancient Rome through the Tudors to modern-day China, leading academics Daron Acemoglu and James A. Robinson show that to invest and prosper, people need to know that if they work hard, they can make money and actually keep it - and this means sound institutions that allow virtuous circles of innovation, expansion and peace.
    Based on fifteen years of research, and answering the competing arguments of authors ranging from Max Weber to Jeffrey Sachs and Jared Diamond, Acemoglu and Robinson step boldly into the territory of Francis Fukuyama and Ian Morris. They blend economics, politics, history and current affairs to provide a new, powerful and persuasive way of understanding wealth and poverty.

  • When people who interact do not share the same abilities, orientations, or beliefs, the results are often disastrous, leaving everyone involved feeling misunderstood, underappreciated, and resentful. Why does this happen? How can we find and focus on the strengths in our differences, rather than the weaknesses? How can we accept that our differences bring with them different ways of looking at a problem, and that these different ways of looking at things lead to unique, and sometimes conflicting, solutions to problems? In this volume, editors John D. Robinson and Larry C. James have assembled renowned leaders, scholars, and educators in order to show how these differences can facilitate, not hinder, our progress. They provide thought-provoking and insightful essays about how having different physical abilities, sexual orientations, races, and religions affects how people interact. Each chapter is written by a member of a different group and presents real-life stories about interactions within that group. The universality of these stories allows the reader to empathize with diverse points of view, generating material for group discussion and debate. The books aim is to enrich interactions among different types of people by exploring how our differences can shape our perceptions of events in particular and life in general by focusing on the strengths in our diversity, rather than the conflicts brought about by it.

  • This brief sheds light on evolving drug markets and the county lines phenomenon in the British context. Drawing upon empirical research gathered in the field between 2012-2019 across two sites, Scotland's West Coast and Merseyside in England, this book adopts a grounded approach to the drug supply model, detailing how drugs are purchased, sold and distributed at every level of the supply chain at both sites. 
    The authors conducted interviews with practitioners, offenders, ex-offenders and those members of the general public most effected by organised crime. The research explores how drug markets have continued to evolve, accumulating in the phenomenon that is county lines. It explores how such behavior has gradually become ever more intertwined with other forms of organised criminal activity.
    /> Useful for researchers, policy makers, and law enforcement officials, this brief recommends a rethinking of current reactive policing strategies.

  • Beginning just before WW1 and continuing into the postwar period, the Canadian Manufacturers' Association mounted a campaign to sell Canadian consumers on the virtues of buying "Made in Canada" goods. Not simply an appeal to patriotism, this campaign had to convince Canadian consumers of the satisfactory quality of such goods - which manufacturers had to deliver the substance of - in an increasingly sophisticated retail and marketing environment. Such an encouragement of the demand side of the producer/consumer equation is an important example of the proactive stance taken by Canadian manufacturers in the early twentieth century to improve their own viability and success. This paper examines the "Made in Canada" campaign as part of a range of business strategies that also included support for scientific industrial research, technical standardization, and vocational education, alongside more traditional anti-competitive policies. The scope of these strategies suggests that the impact of the Second Industrial Revolution was being fully felt in Canada and business leaders recognized the implications of a new political economy in which an unimaginative defence of the protective tariff was no longer adequate.

    Juste avant la Première Guerre mondiale et jusqu'à l'après-guerre, l'Association des manufacturiers canadiens a mené une campagne pour faire valoir aux consommateurs canadiens les avantages d'acheter des produits « fabriqués au Canada ». Au-delà d'un simple cri de ralliement patriotique, cette campagne devait aussi persuader les consommateurs canadiens de la qualité satisfaisante de ces biens dans un univers du détail et de la commercialisation toujours plus complexe, et les manufacturiers devaient être au rendez-vous. Ces efforts de persuasion ciblés du côté de la demande dans l'équation producteur-consommateur constituent un important exemple des mesures actives prises par les manufacturiers canadiens au début du XXe siècle pour améliorer leur viabilité et leur réussite. Le présent article replace la campagne vantant les produits « fabriqués au Canada » dans l'optique d'une série de stratégies d'affaires, qui comprennent aussi le soutien à la recherche scientifique et industrielle, la normalisation technique et la formation professionnelle, ainsi que des politiques anticoncurrentielles plus traditionnelles. La portée de ces stratégies suggère que l'incidence de la seconde révolution industrielle se faisait pleinement sentir au Canada et que les chefs d'entreprise ont eu conscience des répercussions d'une nouvelle économie politique dans laquelle la défense statique des tarifs protectionnistes ne suffisait plus.

  • A formação da mentalidade Nouv.

    O historiador Robinson demonstra como se formou o espírito do homem e como a mente humana evoluiu através da história à força de experiências e do aprendizado através dos erros. A mentalidade é algo natural, mas seu aperfeiçoamento foi adquirido penosamente e laboriosamente. Esse trabalho de crescimento da mente humana continua se desenvolvendo até hoje. Verdadeiro manifesto defensor da liberdade de pensamento como estímulo para o progresso, esse livro inovou brilhantemente a percepção acerca da intelecção e do ensino na época de sua publicação.

    James Harvey Robinson (1863-1936) foi um historiador estadunidense conhecido por suas ideias revolucionárias acerca do estudo da história. Segundo esse pensador, a abordagem historiográfica deve observar além dos eventos políticos e militares, promovendo a interdisciplinaridade entre as ciências humanas, particularmente a antropologia, a sociologia e a psicologia. Sua obra-prima "An Introduction to the History of Western Europe" (1902) inspirou o ensino da história no mundo inteiro.
