Abstract

Climate change has been the source of immense challenges for ethical, economic or political analysts.

We have an idea of which technologies need to be developed. We understand the basic economic policy incentives in favour of reducing emissions, stopping deforestation and promoting more sensible use of our natural envi...

Abstract

My idea of a theory in biology is quite different from the theoretical biology that is expressed as equations of observed or photographed phenomena. I have a simpler, more concrete conception.

In particular, he discusses lithium-ion technology, the contribution of nanotechnologies, and current research using bio-inspired methods to develop innovations su...

Abstract

The ""war on terror"" has generated a scramble for expertise on Islamic or Asian ""culture"" and revived support for area studies, but it has done so at the cost of reviving the kinds of dangerous generalizations that area studies have rightly been accused of. This book provides a much-needed perspective on area studies, a perspective that is attentive to both manifestations of ""traditional culture"" and the new global relationships in which they are being played out. The authors shake off the sha...
