Reversed Realities uncovers the deeply entrenched, hence barely visible, biases which underpin mainstream development theory and account for the marginal status given to women's needs in current development policy. Naila Kabeer traces the emergence of “women” as a specific category in development thought and examines alternative frameworks for analyzing gender hierarchies. She identifies the household as a primary site for the construction of power relations and compares the extent to which gender inequalities are revealed in different approaches to the concept of the family unit. The book assesses the inadequacies of the poverty line as a measuring tool and provides a critical overview of an issue that has been fiercely contested by feminists: population control. While feminists themselves have no unanimous view of the meaning of “reproductive choice,” Kabeer argues that it is imperative for them to take a lead in the construction of population policy.

Mit über 200.000 verkauften Exemplaren dominierte „Power – Die 48 Gesetze der Macht“ von Robert Greene monatelang die Bestsellerlisten. Nun erscheint der Klassiker als Kompaktausgabe: knapp, prägnant, unterhaltsam. Wer Macht haben will, darf sich nicht zu lange mit moralischen Skrupeln aufhalten. Wer glaubt, dass ihn die Mechanismen der Macht nicht interessieren müssten, kann morgen ihr Opfer sein. Wer behauptet, dass Macht auch auf sanftem Weg erreichbar ist, verkennt die Wirklichkeit. Dieses Buch ist der Machiavelli des 21. Jahrhunderts, aber auch eine historische und literarische Fundgrube voller Überraschungen.

Are astral planes and your other realities real, or only part of your mind, beliefs, and imagination? Astral planes are real indeed, Existence defines them all just the way it defines this entire world we call Reality, and therefore all planes of your existence are just as real as this world we call Reality. …Yet Existence comes in three relative natures, used to distinguish between your higher and lower realities, while you also understand all your realities through your mind, reasoning, awareness, and imagination, since even this world we call Reality makes sense to you only as part of your reasoning, awareness, and imagination. …And this is the case because there is no other way to experience anything in life and in the wider world but through your perception, reasoning, and understanding, and you do so always through the multitude of your selves, intelligences, and identities, throughout all your realities. …Because you may not understand astral planes along with your other realities if you do not understand your cognitive system first, along with your intelligences, memories, meanings, and expectancy, since everything is connected. This interesting entanglement of constraints and meanings causes the ultimate truth of your wider existence to remain hidden within delicate loops or reasoning, to remain hidden this way to the ignorant and to the unconditional follower of dogma, authorities, and ideologies, allowing the truth only to those living life freely, consciously, and in full awareness and understanding, through their natural, higher needs and meanings, since these are your genuine opportunities that you encounter in each one of your worlds and realities, for higher experience and for higher development. This book offers good knowledge, and therefore you cannot use it to harm others and the world, but you may use it to develop continuously, while helping others help themselves, and together helping the world. …And this is the case not because this book is restricted through spells and magic, or this may be also the case, but because this book stands high above harm, fear, and misfortune, and it does so through higher knowledge and through higher meaning. …Because when you are conscious, when you are capable to live life with your eyes open throughout all your realities even simultaneously, you see them all for what they truly are and for what they truly mean to you. …And that is when all your lower instincts, common beliefs, unconscious attitudes, and unwanted stereotypes reveal themselves for what they want and for what they do to you, to your life, and to your cognition, you may remove them if you please, and you are free to live your wider existence freely, consciously, and in full control, as you are always meant to be at your own developmental level. …And here is exactly where this book stands, determined to distinguish between valid knowledge and the multitude of beliefs, between powerful reasoning and inevitable indoctrination, between true enlightenment and unending servitude to outside causes. This book studies yourself and your life and existence throughout all your realities that you employ, own, encounter, visit, inhabit, create, or co-create throughout your wider existence, and it helps you understand who you are through all your selves, intelligences, and identities. If you seek to gain wider consciousness and understanding of who you really are, this book is for you! p { margin-bottom: 0.1in; direction: ltr; line-height: 120%; text-align: left; }

Afghanistan has become home to one of the largest gender-focused aid interventions in the aftermath of 9/11, with foreign aid agencies using Afghan women as a barometer of social change and political progress. Through the lens of gendered aid intervention, this book seeks to understand how the promise of freedom has largely fallen short—for both men and women. Topics include the tenuous relationship between social indicators and aid dynamics; the advancing of the gender agenda through Afghanistan’s 2005 parliamentary elections; and the journey from policy formulation to interpretation to implementation through the voices of policy-makers, policy implementers, NGO leaders, Afghanistan specialists and ordinary Afghan women and men.

Extrait de la couverture : "In rejecting falsely homogenizing accounts of women's lives, feminist economists have, in recent years, unlocked the multiple ways in which gendered relations of dominance and subordination are maintained. One of the key differences they have turned their attention to is ethnicity. This study of Muslim, Sinhala and Tamil Households, in Sri Lanka examines both the commonality of patriarchal structures and economic problems in such households, as well as the differences created by the ethnicities that divide them. The author looks at the nature and reliability of kinship support for female heads and the reciprocal obligations in terms of female propriety and conventional conduct extracted from female heads. She questions development policies premise on the patriarchal household and argues for a recognition of diversity and complexity."
