ECONOMIC GROWTH

Title :

The bottom billion: why the poorest countries are failing and what can be done about it

Author : Paul Collier
Pub. Details : Oxford University Press, New York, 2007
Notes :

Global poverty, Paul Collier points out, is actually falling quite rapidly for about eighty percent of the world. The real crisis lies in a group of about 50 failing states, the bottom billion, whose problems defy traditional approaches to alleviating poverty. In The Bottom Billion, Collier contends that these fifty failed states pose the central challenge of the developing world in the twenty-first century. The book shines a much needed light on this group of small nations, largely unnoticed by the industrialized West, that are dropping further and further behind the majority of the world's people, often falling into an absolute decline in living standards. A struggle rages within each of these nation between reformers and corrupt leaders--and the corrupt are winning. Collier analyzes the causes of failure, pointing to a set of traps that snare these countries, including civil war, a dependence on the extraction and export of natural resources, and bad governance. Standard solutions do not work against these traps, he writes; aid is often ineffective, and globalization can actually make matters worse, driving development to more stable nations. What the bottom billion need, Collier argues, is a bold new plan supported by the Group of Eight industrialized nations. If failed states are ever to be helped, the G8 will have to adopt preferential trade policies, new laws against corruption, and new international charters, and even conduct carefully calibrated military interventions. As former director of research for the World Bank and current Director of the Center for the Study of African Economies at Oxford University, Paul Collier has spent a lifetime working to end global poverty. In The Bottom Billion, he offers real hope for solving one of the great humanitarian crises facing the world today.

She foists Nariman off on his daughter, Roxanna, and his arrival in the small apartment she shares with her husband and children creates a large stress on her family. Roxanna sees to all her father's needs while her husband, uncomfortable with the whole situation, seeks meaning to his life outside the home. A finalist for the 2002 Booker Prize, Family Matters explores themes of family, the reversal of care between generations as they age, and the thin line between middle class and poverty in modern India.

Title :

Ladies coupe

Author:  Anita Nair
Pub. Details : Penguin, New Delhi, 2001
Notes :

At 45, Akhila awakes one day with a "fight-or-flight" notion. So she boards a train's ladies coupe (a segregated, second-class compartment found on most overnight Indian trains until 1998) and journeys from Bangalore to Kanyakumari. After her father's death many years ago, she became the head of her family's household. Breadwinner and martyr, she has sacrificed her desires to fulfill her family's wants and needs. A question has long weighed on her mind: Can a woman live without a man and be happy? The women Akhila meets on the train car respond with their life experiences. Nair's novel is feminist, but it is much more than that as Nair sensitively explores the intimate feelings of her women characters not only in vivid descriptions of their Indian lives, but also in the pleasure they take in something as simple as enjoying a forbidden egg. Nair is a powerful writer, who through this tender story shows great understanding and compassion for all women and for the choices and regrets they cannot avoid.

INDIA - GROWTH & DEVELOPMENT

Title : India : a journey through a healing civilization
Author: Shashank Mani
Pub. Details : HarperCollins Publishers India, New Delhi, 2007
Notes :

The story of an extraordinary emotional adventure… In 1997, on the fiftieth anniversary of India's independence, Shashank Mani, an IIT alumnus, organized a train journey across India. The purpose – to get a sense of how the country had changed in the past fifty years of independence, and what needed to be accomplished in the future. On this twenty-two day journey, in a specially chartered train, were 200 Indians from different walks of life – young men and women whose commitment would help shape the country's future. As they travelled, they discussed among themselves the issues that bothered them as citizens, and possible solutions. They came up with ideas on how best to fight corruption and kindle a new spirit of entrepreneurship. There was a reaffirmation of love for the country, tempered by an awareness of just how much more needed to be done, whether it was in population control or in protecting the environment. In a world suffering the first signs of an 'industrial hangover', the developmental models discovered during the journey offered the participants new and pragmatic alternatives. As India enters its sixtieth year of independence – and as the original 1997 team plans one more ambitious journey across India – this story is a fitting reminder of where we once were and where we need to head.

LEADERSHIP

Title :

The 360 Leader : developing your influence from anywhere in the organization

Author : John C Maxwell
Pub. Details : Pearson Education, New Delhi, 2006
Summary :

Leaders today face the challenge of influencing people from all sides of an organization. Yet, many managers with leadership responsibilities feel that because they are not the main leader, they cannot influence their bosses, peers, and subordinates. People in the middle of an organization experience demands from leaders at the top, customers, expectations from followers, and vendors, all on a daily basis. These leaders have to get along with everyone and survive the dynamics of leadership.

In The 360-Degree Leader, John C. Maxwell exposes the myths and succinctly defines the principles leaders can use to bring value and influence to and from anywhere in the organization, enabling them to lead up, lead across, and lead down. Once leaders can incorporate these principles into their own style of management, they will be able to influence others in every direction.

Given, where they are and what they do best, promoting agriculture is imperative for meeting the Millennium Development Goal of halving poverty and hunger by 2015 and reducing poverty and hunger for several decades thereafter. Agriculture alone will not be enough to massively reduce poverty, but it is an essential component of effective development strategies for most developing countries, says World Development Report 2008: Agriculture for Development.
