Extractive Industries - The Management of Resources as a Driver of Sustainable Development (Hardcover): Tony Addison, Alan Roe Extractive Industries - The Management of Resources as a Driver of Sustainable Development (Hardcover)
Tony Addison, Alan Roe
R1,642 Discovery Miles 16 420 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This is an open access title available under the terms of a CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 IGO licence. It is free to read at Oxford Scholarship Online and offered as a free PDF download from OUP and selected open access locations. New initiatives recognize that resource wealth can provide a means, when properly used, for poorer nations to decisively break with poverty by diversifying economies and funding development spending. Extractive Industries: The Management of Resources as a Driver of Sustainable Development explores the challenges and opportunities facing developing countries in using oil, gas, and mining to achieve inclusive change. While resource wealth can yield prosperity it can also, when mismanaged, cause acute social inequality, deep poverty, environmental damage, and political instability. There is a new determination to improve the benefits of extractive industries to their host countries, and to strengthen the sector's governance. Extractive Industries provides a comprehensive contribution to what must be done in this sector to deliver development, protect often fragile environments from damage, enhance the rights of affected communities, and support climate change action. It brings together international experts to offer ideas and recommendations in the main policy areas. With a breadth of collective insight and experience, it argues that more attention must be given to the development role of extractive industries, and looks to the future to explain how action on climate change will profoundly shape the sector's prospects.

Global Environmental History - An Introductory Reader (Paperback, New): John R. McNeill, Alan Roe Global Environmental History - An Introductory Reader (Paperback, New)
John R. McNeill, Alan Roe
R985 Discovery Miles 9 850 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Global Environmental History introduces this rapidly developing field through a broad and thought-provoking range of expert contributions.

Environmental history is a subject especially suited to global and transnational approaches and, over the course of the present generation, an increasing number of scholars have taken up the challenge that it presents. The collection begins with a series of chapters offering truly global visions; they range from reflections on the role of animals in environmental history to an overview of environmental change over the past ten millennia.

Part Two switches to a sharper focus, featuring essays that characterize the distinctiveness of certain key regions such as China, Russia, West Africa, South Asia, Europe, and Latin America. The final part of the book examines different forms of modern environmentalism, ranging from the U.S. and its fascination with wilderness, to Japanese concern with human health, and on to Peru and India, where the environmental debate centres on access to resources.

Global Environmental History will be an essential resource for students of Environmental History and Global History.

Hands on Hearts - A Physio's Tale (Hardcover): Alan Rae Hands on Hearts - A Physio's Tale (Hardcover)
Alan Rae; As told to Paul Kiddie
R573 R448 Discovery Miles 4 480 Save R125 (22%) Out of stock

Alan Rae was the physio at Hearts for over 20 years. He joined the club in 1982, languishing in the First Division and looking at the prospect of part time football. In that time he has seen 8 managers come and go as well as 3 owners and too many players to mention. Six years after leaving 'The Jambos' he has penned a memoir of his time at Hearts. He has anecdotes about home games, European games and even pre and post season tours abroad. Woven into these memories is the medical knowledge of a true professional, from players suffering career threatening injuries to managers for whom the pain of losing is physical as well as mental.
