Since 1983 Ghana has become a test case of the efficacy of the World Bank and the IMF's stabilization and adjustment-based lending policies. The government has "bitten the IMF bullet" with a vengeance, with deregulated currency, liberalized trade, slimmed down state-owned enterprises and strengthened bureaucracies as prescribed by the lending institutions. In terms of compliance, Ghana has been a model patient. The outcomes of the policies are, however, only beginning to be documented. This study looks at the lives of Ghanaian men and women after almost ten years of adjustment and reveals adjustment and its concomitant effects as part of a continuous and ongoing process within the contemporary history and development of Ghana. District, regional and national perspectives are also woven into the picture, giving both wider macro- and more qualitative emphases. (source: Nielsen Book Data)

America's special relationship with Italy took form during the years 1945 to 1948. The postwar reconstruction period witnessed an intense struggle to determine the new Italy's political and economic orientation. By virtue of their physical presence, ambitions, and evident strategic interests in Italy, the Americans aspired to play an active part in the internal political contest and ideological debate. Professor Harper's book explores the American role in Italy from the end of the war until the decisive elections of 1948, setting forth its objectives, contradictions, and fundamental limitations. Concentrating on U.S. aid and the economic policies, Professor Harper skilfully traces the attempts of different parties within the U.S. government to build ties to their respective Italian counterparts to bring about basic changes in the Italian political economy. Those alliances remained largely inchoate as, despite their considerable power, the Americans lacked the intellectual preparation and diplomatic leverage to carry out their designs.

Amid the biggest economic transformation in a century, many Americans are uncertain about the future-there are many paths to opportunity but few people travel them. In America's Moment, American CEOs, technologists, community leaders, educators, management experts and government officials suggest an agenda for an exciting future in this time of change. Illustrated by people who are showing the way, it includes action people can take in their own community: preparing for success; using the reach of the Internet and data to innovate jobs and to reach new markets; using technology to match employers and workers; and transitioning to a "no-collar" working world. America's Moment describes how the forces of change can become tools that open opportunity to everyone. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
