In the 19th Century, economic growth was accompanied by large-scale structural change, known as industrialization, which fundamentally affected western societies. Even though industrialization is on the wane in some advanced economies and we are experiencing substantial structural changes again, the causes and consequences of these changes are inextricably linked with earlier industrialization.This means that understanding 19th Century industrialization helps us understand problems of contemporary economic growth. There is no recent study on economic developments in 19th Century Germany. So this concise volume, written specifically with students of German and economic history in mind, will prove to be most valuable, not least because of its wealth of statistical data.

The Political Economy of Ottoman Public Debt

In the late nineteenth century many debtor countries faced severe external debt service problems and eventually had to agree on new contracts for the settlement of their debts. This process always involved power asymmetries in favour of the creditors. In some cases, the lenders were satisfied by institutional changes aimed at securing the repayment of their loans, and the creation of opportunities to further their economic or political gains. In other cases, the lenders went even further and seized direct control of the fiscal revenues of the debtor countries. Among these countries, the Ottomans present a unique case of an empire gradually dissolved and peripheralized within the capitalist world economy. This book analyzes the external debt crisis in the Ottoman Empire by focusing on the institutional changes following the establishment of the Ottoman Public Debt Administration (OPDA) and its role in the peripheralization of the Ottoman economy. _x000D_ _x000D_ The limitations of a pre-capitalist economy largely based on subsistence production determined the limited external trade potential of the empire. The institutional reforms initiated by the OPDA restructured the export oriented sectors of the Ottoman economy, contributed to the gradual dissolution of subsistence production, and consequently boosted external trade of the empire. Moreover, the expansion of foreign trade was accompanied by a drastic increase in foreign direct investment after the establishment of the OPDA, which created a safer environment for foreign investment. Within this framework, Murat Birdal demonstrates the ‘dual role’ played of the OPDA. On the one hand, the OPDA represented a striking example of ‘colonization through lending’ arguments, due to its pivotal role in the exacerbation of European imperialism. On the other, the OPDA made a significant contribution to the modernization of Turkish public financial administration and the establishment of a public enterprise system, which later formed the backbone of the modern Turkish economy. _x000D_ _x000D_ Murat Birdal here provides the first in-depth study of the Ottoman Public Debt Administration. This book will be invaluable to scholars of Ottoman, Middle East and economic history._x000D_

For decades, the prevailing sentiment was that, since geography is unchangeable, there is no reason why public policies should take it into account. In fact, charges that geographic interpretations of development were deterministic, or even racist, made the subject a virtual taboo in academic and policymaking circles alike. 'Is Geography Destiny?' challenges that premise and joins a growing body of literature studying the links between geography and development. Focusing on Latin America, the book argues that based on a better understanding of geography, public policy can help control or channel its influence toward the goals of economic and social development.

First published in 1976, Raymond Williams' highly acclaimed Keywords: A Vocabulary of Culture and Society is a collection of lively essays on words that are critical to understanding the modern world. In these essays, Williams, a renowned cultural critic, demonstrates how these key words take on new meanings and how these changes reflect the political bent and values of our past and current society. He chose words both essential and intangible--words like nature, underprivileged, industry, liberal, violence, to name a few--and, by tracing their etymology and evolution, grounds them in a wider political and cultural framework. The result is an illuminating account of the central vocabulary of ideological debate in English in the modern period. This edition features a new original foreword by Colin MacCabe, Distinguished Professor of English and Literature, University of Pittsburgh, that reflects on the significance of Williams' life and work. Keywords remains as relevant today as it was over thirty years ago, offering a provocative study of our language and an insightful look at the society in which we live.

Why do well-intentioned plans for improving the human condition go tragically awry? In a wide-ranging and original study, James C.
