This lexicon provides as comprehensive as possible a list of explicit etymologies of Latin words found in Latin and Greek writers from the time of Varro to Isidore of Seville. Robert Maltby has extracted from glossaries and scholia as well as the standard ancient etymological source books. His policy of quoting extensively, rather than summarizing, reveals the relationships between the various sources and the reasoning behind many of their etymologies. It amounts to a major work of reference. It is a reprint from the 1991 edition.
A wealth of country-level socioeconomic data and individual historical trajectories come together in this volume to show us a region where a novel development strategy may be in the making. Emerging from the developmentalism and neoliberalism experiences of the last century, the twenty-first century Latin American developmental welfare state model is based on a new public-private alliance, where state-led developmental social policy relies for its implementation mainly on proactive, emerging, regional entrepreneurs and a growing middle class. These groups, together with a renewed public sector, seem poised to lead the development prospects of the region and its peoples in the new century.
The International Assessment of Agricultural Knowledge, Science, and Technology for Development (IAASTD) looks realistically at how we could effectively use agriculture/AKST to help us meet development and sustainability goals. An unprecedented three-year collaborative effort, the IAASTD involved more than 400 authors in 110 countries and cost more than $11 million. It reports on the advances and setbacks of the past fifty years and offers options for the next fifty years. The results of the project are contained in seven reports: a Global Report, five regional Sub-Global Assessments, and a Synthesis Report. The Global Report gives the key findings of the Assessment, and the five Sub-Global Assessments address regional challenges. The volumes present options for action. All of the reports have been extensively peer-reviewed by governments and experts and all have been approved by a panel of participating governments. The Sub-Global Assessments all utilize a similar and consistent framework: examining and reporting on the impacts of AKST on hunger, poverty, nutrition, human health, and environmental/social sustainability. The IAASTD was initiated by the World Bank and the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization, with support from the World Bank, the World Health Organization, and other sponsors. Its goal is to analyze the potential of agricultural knowledge, science, and technology (AKST) for reducing hunger and poverty, improving rural livelihoods, and working toward environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable development.
