BOOK EXCERPT:

This volume takes stock of the World Bank's experiences applying this approach. The eight goodpractice cases presented in this volume illustrate recent Bank achievements. Problem-Driven Political EconomyAnalysis: The World Bank's Experience shows how political economy analysis can be applied to specificdevelopment challenges from different sectors, highlights the range of empirical evidence that can be usedand discusses the types of recommendations and follow up actions that result.Each case opens by describing the specific challenge or opportunity that prompted the analysis:an emerging natural resource boom in Mongolia, a growing need for subsidy reform in Morocco, difficultconstellations around electricity sector reform in the Dominican Republic, electricity and telecommunicationsreforms in Zambia, the development of inclusive commercial agriculture in Ghana, infrastructureprograms at the subnational level in Sierra Leone, local infrastructure provision in Papua New Guinea, andthe allocation of local roads and health services in the Philippines.The cases then review key findings, describing how political economy drivers impeded first best economicallyefficient or technically sound reforms and how the incentives at play offer opportunities forengagement.Each case then sets out the feasible policy recommendations derived from the analysis, includingspecific recommendations for how development interventions can be adapted to existing political economyconstraints and—where possible—how to engage on expanding the space for reform. Finally, there is areflection on the uptake and effects of the problem-driven analysis on World Bank operations and on policydialogue.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Zombie Politics and Culture in the Age of Casino Capitalism capitalizes upon the popularity of zombies, exploring the relevance of the metaphor they provide for examining the political and pedagogical conditions that have produced a growing culture of sadism, cruelty, disposability, and death in America. The zombie metaphor may seem extreme, but it is particularly apt for drawing attention to the ways in which political culture and power in American society now operate on a level of mere survival. This book uses the metaphor not only to suggest the symbolic face of power: beginning and ending with an analysis of authoritarianism, it attempts to mark and chart the visible registers of a kind of zombie politics, including the emergence of right-wing teaching machines, a growing politics of disposability, the emergence of a culture of cruelty, and the ongoing war being waged on young people, especially on youth of color. By drawing attention to zombie politics and authoritarianism, this book aims to break through the poisonous common sense that often masks zombie politicians, anti-public intellectuals, politics, institutions, and social relations, and bring into focus a new language, pedagogy, and politics in which the living dead will be moved decisively to the margins rather than occupying the very center of politics and everyday life.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Alexis de Tocqueville once wrote that "the people reign over the American political world like God over the universe," unwittingly casting democracy as the political instantiation of the death of God. According to Jeffrey W. Robbins, Tocqueville's assessment remains an apt observation of modern democratic power, which does not rest with a sovereign authority but operates as a diffuse social force. By linking radical democratic theory to a contemporary fascination with political theology, Robbins envisions the modern experience of democracy as a social, cultural, and political force transforming the nature of sovereign power and political authority. Robbins joins his work with Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri's radical conception of "network power," as well as Sheldon Wolin's notion of "fugitive democracy," to fashion a political theology that captures modern democracy's social and cultural torment. This approach has profound implications not only for the nature of contemporary religious belief and practice but also for the reconceptualization of the proper relationship between religion and politics. Challenging the modern, liberal, and secular assumption of a neutral public space, Robbins conceives of a postsecular politics for contemporary society that inextricably links religion to the political. While effectively recasting the tradition of radical theology as a political theology, this book also develops a comprehensive critique of the political theology bequeathed by Carl Schmitt. It marks an original and visionary achievement by the scholar the Journal of the American Academy of Religion hailed "one of the best commentators on religion and postmodernism."

BOOK EXCERPT:

Since gaining independence, the United Republic of Tanzania has enjoyed relative stability. More recently, the nation transitioned peacefully from "single-party democracy" and socialism to a multiparty political system with a market-based economy. But Tanzania's development strategies—based on the leading economic ideas at the time of independence—also opened the door for unscrupulous dealmaking among political elites and led to economic decline in the 1960s and 1970s that continues to be felt today. Indeed, the shift to a market-oriented economy was motivated in part by the fiscal interests of government profiteers. The Political Economy of Tanzania focuses on the nation's economic development from 1961 to the present, considering the global and domestic factors that have shaped Tanzania's economic policies over time. Michael F. Lofchie presents a compelling analysis of the successes and failures of a country whose postcolonial history has been deeply influenced by high-ranking members of the political elite who have used their power to advance their own economic interests. The Political Economy of Tanzania offers crucial lessons for scholars and policy makers with a stake in Africa's future.
