Ebenso wie das Buch 'Ware Mensch' (BA 12/00), mit dem der italienische Experte für internationale organisierte Kriminalität, Pino Arlacchi, kürzlich eine engagierte faktenreiche Darstellung der bestehenden Formen moderner Sklaverei vorlegte, zeichnet sich auch die umfangreiche Untersuchung des amerikanischen Soziologen und Unterstützers der Organisation 'Anti-Slavery International', Kevin Bales, durch engagierte Expertise und große Anschaulichkeit aus. Die ausführlich geschilderten Fallbeispiele aus Thailand, Mauretanien, Brasilien, Pakistan und Indien zeigen in differenzierter Wahrnehmung auch fließende Übergänge von harten Arbeitsbedingungen zu echter Versklavung, beleuchten nationale und internationale Hintergründe sowie zu beobachtende Ansätze einer Änderung der Verhältnisse. Arlacchi wie Bales können gleichermaßen als fundierte und aktuelle Problembeschreibungen öffentlichen Bibliotheken jeder Größe neben dem Schüler geeigneten Bändchen der Süd-Nord-Reihe 'Zum Beispiel Sklaverei' (BA 4/96) sehr empfohlen werden.

Interest in economics is at an all-time high. Among the challenges facing the nation is an economy with rapidly rising unemployment, failures of major businesses and industries, and continued dependence on oil with its wildly fluctuating price. Americans are debating the proper role of the government in company bailouts, the effectiveness of tax cuts versus increased government spending to stimulate the economy, and potential effects of deflation. Economists have dealt with such questions for generations, but they have taken on new meaning and significance. Tackling these questions and encompassing analysis of traditional economic theory and topics as well as those that economists have only more recently addressed, 21st Century Economics: A Reference Handbook is intended to meet the needs of several types of readers. Undergraduate students preparing for exams will find summaries of theory and models in key areas of micro and macroeconomics. Readers interested in learning about economic analysis of an issue as well students embarking on research projects will find introductions to relevant theory and empirical evidence. And economists seeking to learn about extensions of analysis into new areas or about new approaches will benefit from chapters that introduce cutting-edge topics. To make the book accessible to undergraduate students, models have been presented only in graphical format (minimal calculus) and empirical evidence has been summarized in ways that do not require much background in statistics or econometrics. It is thereby hoped that chapters will provide both crucial information and inspiration in a non-threatening, highly readable format.

Die Großstädte und das Geistesleben ist ein 1903 erschienener Aufsatz des Soziologen Georg Simmel, mit dem dieser die Grundlagen der Stadtsoziologie schuf. Das tiefste Problem des modernen Lebens ist nach Georg Simmel der Anspruch des Individuums nach der Selbstständigkeit und Eigenart seines Daseins gegen die Übermächte der Gesellschaft, das geschichtlich Ererbte der äußerlichen Kultur und Technik des Lebens zu bewahren. Der Großstädter ist - im Gegensatz zum Kleinstädter - einer "Steigerung des Nervenlebens" ausgesetzt. Darin besteht die Basis für den Typus großstädtischer Individualität. Georg Simmel (1858-1918) war ein deutscher Philosoph und Soziologe. Er leistete wichtige Beiträge zur Kulturphilosophie, war Begründer der "formalen Soziologie" und der Konfliktsoziologie. Simmel stand in der Tradition der Lebensphilosophie, aber auch der des Neukantianismus.
