The recent global recession demonstrated that nations, regions and firms that produced (or improved) new technologies enjoyed economic growth; while those who didn't stagnated or declined. Thus, technological innovation is now seen as the way to produce jobs, profits and growth. This volume focuses on the most promising aspect of recent initiatives for technological innovation - their reliance on multi-group, multi-institutional and/or multi-sector collaboration, the ``New Partnership''. Part I of this volume looks at broad policy issues and provides an historical context for those who want a macro-level perspective. Part II describes specific programs for technological innovation, what they promise, and what they have already delivered. These chapters should be of particular interest to readers concerned with micro-level, operational or programmatic issues.

The New Partnership for Africa's Development plans to develop equitable and sustainable growth in Africa by increasing its integration with the world economy. But NEPAD has come under criticism from major social movements, trade unions and intellectuals for its reliance on corporate-driven globalisation, and its apparent existence as an extension of neo-colonial globalisation. Here, the original NEPAD manifesto is reproduced alongside a paragraph-by-paragraph annotated critique from thinkers and activists around the world.

From henna tattoo kits available at your local mall to “faux Asian” fashions, housewares and fusion cuisine; from the new visibility of Asian film, music, video games and anime to the current popularity of martial arts motifs in hip hop, Asian influences have thoroughly saturated the U.S. cultural landscape and have now become an integral part of the vernacular of popular culture. By tracing cross-cultural influences and global cultural trends, the essays in East Main Street bring Asian American studies, in all its interdisciplinary richness, to bear on a broad spectrum of cultural artifacts. Contributors consider topics ranging from early Asian American movie stars to the influences of South Asian iconography on rave culture, and from the marketing of Asian culture through food to the contemporary clamor for transnational Chinese women’s historical fiction. East Main Street hits the shelves in the midst of a boom in Asian American population and cultural production. This book is essential not only for understanding Asian American popular culture but also contemporary U.S. popular culture writ large.

The New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD) Opportunities and Challenges

This paper reviews major issues involved in achieving the objectives of the New Partnership for Africa''s Development (NEPAD). Using a simple framework for evaluation, the analysis highlights considerations relevant to policymakers in the areas of poverty reduction, macroeconomic policies, trade promotion, attracting capital flows, and governance and institutional reforms. The analysis also identifies risks involved in achieving NEPAD''s objectives. To minimize these risks, it will be important to make some goals more operational, to further broaden and deepen stakeholder participation, to establish a sound basis for monitoring progress, to prepare contingency plans, and to harmonize the role of regional institutions with NEPAD initiatives.
