"L'agriculture sénégalaise, à la fin du 19eme siècle, repose essentiellement sur des produits de cueillette. L'introduction de l'arachide au Sénégal au début du 20ème siècle révolutionne le paysage agricole. La France décide alors de faire du Sénégal une colonie arachidière. Grâce à une bonne gestion du secteur et un encadrement technique et administratif adéquat des populations, le Sénégal est devenu la troisième puissance arachidière du monde après les États-Unis et l'Inde. Cependant, la monoculture minière et extensive de l'arachide aboutit à un déficit vivrier chronique, une dégradation des sols, une dépendance vis-à-vis des importations de riz en provenance de l'Indochine (Cambodge surtout) et de la Thaïlande. Pour remédier à cette malédiction arachidière, le rapport de la mission Roland Portères de 1952, qualifié de Bible par le gouverneur du Sénégal, recommande des mesures d'aménagement du territoire, de restauration des sols, de promotion de l'agriculture intégrée sérère."--Page 4 of cover.

All They Will Call You is the harrowing account of "the worst airplane disaster in California's history, " which claimed the lives of thirty-two passengers, including twenty-eight Mexican citizens-farmworkers who were being deported by the U.S. government. Outraged that media reports omitted only the names of the Mexican passengers, American folk icon Woody Guthrie penned a poem that went on to become one of the most important protest songs of the twentieth century, "Plane Wreck at Los Gatos (Deportee)." It was an attempt to restore the dignity of the anonymous lives whose unidentified remains were buried in an unmarked mass grave in California's Central Valley. For nearly seven decades, the song's message would be carried on by the greatest artists of our time, including Pete Seeger, Dolly Parton, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, and Joan Baez, yet the question posed in Guthrie's lyrics, "Who are these friends all scattered like dry leaves?" would remain unanswered-until now. Combining years of painstaking investigative research and masterful storytelling, award-winning author Tim Z. Hernandez weaves a captivating narrative from testimony, historical records, and eyewitness accounts, reconstructing the incident and the lives behind the legendary song. This singularly original account pushes narrative boundaries, while challenging perceptions of what it means to be an immigrant in America, but more importantly, it renders intimate portraits of the individual souls who, despite social status, race, or nationality, shared a common fate one frigid morning in January 1948.

  • Corporate becoming and strategic leadership

  • Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard build a great test and measurement instruments company
  • John Young doubles down on computing
  • Lew Platt pivots HP toward commodity business

  • Mark Hurd relentlessly manages for results
  • Léo Apotheker intends to revolutionize HP
  • Meg Whitman resolves strategic integration challenges, from better together to splitting HP in two
  • Corporate becoming : why strategic leadership matters.
Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard invented the model of the Silicon Valley start-up and set in motion a process of corporate becoming that made it possible for HP to transform itself six times over the 77 years since its founding in the face of sweeping technological changes that felled most of its competitors over the years. Today, HP is in the throes of a seventh transformation to secure its continued survival by splitting in two independent companies: HP Inc. and Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Based on extensive primary research conducted over more than 15 years, this book documents the differential contribution of HP's successive CEOs in sustaining the company's integral process of becoming. It uses a comprehensive strategic leadership framework to examine and explain the role of the CEO: (1) defining and executing the key tasks of strategic leadership, and (2) developing four key elements of the company's strategic leadership capability. The study of the strategic leadership of HP's successive CEOs revealed the paradox of corporate becoming, the existential situation facing successive CEOs (that justifies the book's empathic approach), and the importance of the CEO's ability to harness the company's past while also driving its future. Building on these novel insights, the book shows how the frameworks used to conceptualize the tasks of strategic leadership and the development of strategic leadership capability can serve as steps toward a dynamic theory of strategic leadership that animates an evolutionary framework of corporate becoming. This framework will be helpful for further theory development about strategic leadership and also offers practical tools for founders of new companies and CEOs and boards of directors of existing companies who intend to create, run or oversee companies built for continued relevance, longevity and greatness.

  • Introduction
  • Customary connection to land and practices of resilience
  • Greeting the state
  • Landowner groups and the codification of custom in Papua New Guinea
  • Making land work?
  • Land titling and state building in postconflict Timor-Leste
  • Contesting land, city, state, and nation
  • Conclusion.
Across Melanesia, as across much of the world, the ways in which people connect to land are being transformed by modernizing processes of change-globalization, the building of states and nations, practices and imaginaries of development, the legacies of colonialism, and the complexities of postcolonial encounters. Melanesian peoples are becoming landowners, this book argues, both in the sense that these processes of change compel forms of property relations, and in the sense that "landowner" and "custom landowner" become identities to be wielded against the encroachment of both state and capital. In places where customary forms of land tenure have long been dominant, deeply intertwined with senses of self and relationships with others, land now becomes a crucible upon which social relations, power, and culture are reconfigured and reimagined. Employing a multi-sited ethnographic approach, Becoming Landowners explores these transformations to land and life as they unfold across two Melanesian countries. The chapters move between coasts and inland mountain ranges, between urban centers and rural villages, telling the stories of people and places who are always situated and particular but who also share powerful commonalities of experience. These stories include: a subsistence-based community shaped by the legacies of colonialism and occupation in remote Timor-Leste; villagers in Papua New Guinea resisting a mining operation and the government agents supporting it; an urban East Timorese settlement resisting eviction by the nation-state its residents hoped would represent them in the postindependence era; and people and groups in both countries who are struggling for, with, and sometimes against formal codification of their claims to land and place. In each of these places customary and modern forms of connection to land are being propelled into complex and dynamic configurations, theorized here in an innovative way as entanglements of custom and modernity. Moving between multiple sites, scales, and forms of collectivity, Becoming Landowners reveals entanglements as spaces of deep ambivalence, where structures of power are destabilized in ways that can lend themselves to the diminishing of local autonomy, but which also create new possibilities for reasserting that autonomy.

China's emergence as the world's second largest economy has been driven by more than four decades of explosive growth. To support this expansion, China has required massive expansion in its steel production capacity, which is highly correlated to its demand for iron ore imports. The scale and pace of China's iron ore demand shock has pushed the global iron ore market into a historical adjustment. Using economic frameworks, this book brings to bare new data and field observations throughout Asia and Africa to investigate how the rapid growth in China's iron ore demand has affected the organisation and structure of the global iron ore market. The research provides several important contributions to the extant literature including analysis of whether the Big Three Asian market iron ore exporters coordinated to sustain the profits arising from the price boom; estimating the financial impact of the Chinese state's intervention in iron price negotiations; and addressing the concerns arising from the Chinese state's provision of cheap financial support for its companies' iron ore procurement. Offering unique insights into China's economic rise and the structure of the iron ore market, this book will be relevant to students and scholars of resource economics, and the Australian and Chinese economies.

Coolie labour was often proclaimed as a deliberate compromise straddling the regimes of the past (slave labour) and the future (free labour). In the late 1850s, the locals were replaced by labourers imported from outside the province who were designated "coolies". Qualifying this framework of transition and introduction, this study makes a case for the "production" of coolie labour in the history of the colonial-capitalist plantations in Assam.

Sustainable development is an internationally recognised objective for governments, businesses and societies. However, how the private sector engages with sustainability in a systematic way through their business activities remains unclear. This book evaluates the sustainability practices of the private sector by utilising a sustainability assessment framework - a method for integrating different strands of impact assessment, to better inform decision making for the promotion of sustainable economic development. Through a sample of leading multinational enterprises (MNEs) in Thailand, this book provides evidence on the types of sustainability approaches being utilised by the private sector, shedding light on the important relationship between FDI and sustainable development. It also clarifies the role of FDI in sustainable development, and the methods, tools, and techniques that enable the private sector to engage with sustainability and sustainable development. The book will generate significant interest from sustainability practitioners in both the public and private sector.
