The World Of the Shining Prince

By Morris, Ivan




Ivan Morris studied Japanese language and culture at Harvard University while serving in the Intelligence Section of the U.S. Navy Reserves. After receiving his Ph.D. from the University of London in 1951, he worked for the Far East Section of the BBC as well as for the Japan and Pacific departments of the British Foreign Office. He lived in Tokyo for several years, writing, lecturing, and teaching. In 1960 he joined what would later be renamed the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures at Columbia University, where he served as department chair. He was elected a Fellow of St. Anthony’s College at Oxford in 1966. Morris published numerous books on Japanese history, literature, and politics and produced distinguished translations of classical and contemporary Japanese works. He died in 1976.

Economic Development: A Regional, Institutional and Historical Approach

Michael P. Shields,Richard Grabowski,Sharmistha Self

PHI Learning. First edition. Softcover. New. This innovative book provides an introduction to economic development adopting a regional approach. Instead of a general theoretical presentation, the authors focus the economy in its cultural and historical roots taking into account the circumstances facing the economy. The theory is developed for particular regions emphasizing on institutional structures within different regions. The development process presented is analyzed within the historical context of each region, considering the inheritance from both the pre-colonial and colonial eras as well as in the contemporary times. The text which contains numerous references is aimed at the students of economic development, and does not assume any background on economics as a prerequisite. It could be used in undergraduate-level courses in economic development, political economy, comparative systems, world economic systems and international relations. CONTENTS: Tables, Figures, and Maps Preface Acknowledgments 1. INTRODUCTION TO ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT 2. EUROPEAN EMERGENCE 3. EAST ASIAN EXPERIENCE 4. SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA 5. SOUTH ASIA 6. LATIN AMERICA 7. THE MIDDLE EAST AND NORTH AFRICA 8. ECONOMIES IN TRANSITION: SOCIALIST TO MARKET 9. CONCLUSIONS: WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED? About the Authors Index Printed Pages: 336.
