"A long road to substantive levels of industrialization still lies ahead of most African countries. The challenges facing policy-makers, industrialists, industrial development activist and all other actors in these countries are enormous. This raises the question as to, what role the international community should play in the 21st century to provide support intended to expedite Africa's industrial development.This book argues that arrangements should be leveraged to build the productive capacities of the African economies, in order to enable them to take advantage of the market opportunities arising from preferential market access terms within various stripes of regional trade agreements (RTAs) and multilateral liberalization and demonstrates how African-EU co-operation can help build sustainable and competitive productive capacities in Africa"-- Provided by publisher.
"Of the fifty-four African states, only South Africa is categorised by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) amongst industrialised countries. The economic activities in Africa are still dominated by the production and trade of agricultural and mineral commodities. This situation is in spite of the longstanding Africa-European Union (EU) co-operation, which intends, among other things, to support Africa's industrialization endeavours. Imperatively, a long road to substantive levels of industrialization still lies ahead of the African countries. This raises the question as to, what role the international community could and should play in the 21st century to provide the support needed to expedite Africa's industrial transformation. This book argues that to supplement the initiatives of each African country, international partnerships, of both 'North-South' and 'South-South' nature, will serve better purposes, if they are leveraged to develop productive capacities in African economies. In order to enable the African countries to leverage their traditional partnership with the EU for industrialisation, a paradigm shift is obligatory. A feasible model should emulate the Japanese-led 'flying geese' model and the Chinese-led 'bamboo capitalism model"-- Provided by publisher.

"With the televised events of 1989, territories of Eastern and Central Europe that had been marked as impenetrable and inaccessible to the Western gaze exploded into visibility. As the narratives of the Cold War crumbled, new narratives emerged and new geographies were produced on and by American television. Using an understudied archive of American news broadcasts, and tracing their flashes and echoes through travel guides and narratives of return written by Eastern European-Americans, this book explores American ways of seeing and mapping communism's disintegration and the narratives articulated around post-communist sites and subjects"-- Provided by publisher.

  • Architectural Destruction in Contemporary Conflicts
  • Representing and Replicating Architectural Destruction in Ancient, Early Modern, and Modern Contexts
  • Iconoclasm and Architectural Destruction
  • Future Destruction : The Fate of Architecture in Post-Conflict Environments
  • From Destruction to Reconstruction.
"Bringing together specialists from a range of relevant fields and drawing on a range of global case studies, this book provides the first synthetic body of research on the complex, multifaceted subject of architectural destruction in the context of conflict. Situated in a strong framework, the book addresses several key questions:How has the targeted destruction of buildings and landscapes been used as a deliberate technique of war, conquest, or armed liberation in recent conflicts? How have individuals, cultures, and states responded to the deliberate and collateral destruction of architecture? How have individuals, institutions, and states represented architectural destruction, and to what ends? What are the relationships between the destruction of architecture and the destruction of art, particularly iconoclasm? Does armed conflict engender further processes of architectural destruction that persist in post-conflict environments? What are the relationships between architectural destruction and processes of restoration, recreation or replacement? Considering multiple conflicts, multiple time periods, and multiple locations, this collection provides an essential primer for this crucial topic. "-- Provided by publisher.
"Architecture and Armed Conflict is the first multi-authored scholarly book to address the theme of the politics of destruction from a comparative, interdisciplinary perspective. By bringing together specialists from a range of relevant fields and with knowledge of case studies across time and space, it provides the first synthetic body of research on the complex, multifaceted subject of architectural destruction in the context of conflict"-- Provided by publisher.

"China's transformation from a poor and underdeveloped country into a global market power has profoundly altered its socioeconomic power relations with the other countries in the Greater China region, namely, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Indeed, this economic shift has resulted in the massive flow of capital and people from Taiwan as well as Hong Kong to China, to seek business opportunities and new lifestyles. These flows have in turn completely transformed longstanding borderlines in the region. This book examines the transformation of Taiwan and Hong Kong's socioeconomic relationships with China as their economies have become more deeply integrated into Greater China. Across three key sections, it explores the impact of increasing social interaction and the shrinking of existing borderlines to ask whether these changes will bring about a convergence of identity among the people involved. 'Production', examines how investments from Taiwan and Hong Kong to China have transformed production networks; 'community and daily life' explores the impact of cross boundary mobility and the integration of migrants into Chinese communities; and finally, 'identity formation' engages with what is one of the most important issues in contemporary Taiwanese society. Border Crossing in Greater China contributes not only to theoretical debates on border crossing issues, but also provides valuable insights on the practical concerns regarding social and political integration and tensions in the region. As such, it will be of great interest to students and scholars of Taiwan studies, Chinese studies, Chinese society and Chinese economics"-- Provided by publisher.
