What's New With Kumarian Press: February New Releases

Greetings KP Readers,

Kumarian Press shook up January with the release of Tectonic Shifts, edited by Mark Schuller and Pablo Morales. The book has received great attention by many in the fields of: Anthropology, Sociology, Politics and Caribbean Studies; and has also been featured at local Washington, DC and New York venues including: Busboys and Poets, The Brecht Forum and the Embassy of Haiti. Tectonic Shifts is available for purchase now.

February Releases Include:
Peddlers of Information, Detecting Corruption in Developing Countries

Peddlers of Information: Not only do most people remain largely excluded from ICTs, but when they do engage with these technologies, they do so in unforeseen ways. Peddlers of Information shows how local NGOs in rural India are actually using these technologies—particularly the internet—and the implications this has had for development work and ideas about poverty.

Detecting Corruption in Developing Countries: Detecting Corruption merges scholarship on corruption assessments with practical techniques on ways practitioners and policy makers can implement anticorruption assistance. Spector argue that assessments need to adopt a comprehensive “whole of government” approach that examines all key sectors where there are corruption vulnerabilities.
