The IBSS is now produced under the editorial direction and authority of the British Library of Political and Economic Science, one of the world's leading social science institutions.

Providing a rich analysis, Bargaining Power, Wages, and Employment examines one of the most deprived groups in the country: agricultural laborers. This group constitutes 30% of all rural households, nearly two thirds of whom live below the poverty line, and accounts for about 60% of the total unemployed person-days in rural India. Using data for five different agro-climatic zones, the author develops a new bargaining model for the casual labor market at the village level. By exerting asymmetric power, the bargaining model determines the agricultural wage rate, the level of employment, and the employers' profits. Of particular interest is author Gaurav Datt's analysis of quasi-cooperative forms of behavior that persist even where labor unions are nonexistent as well as Datt's emphasis on the importance of building gender disparity into the bargaining process. Also developing a new research agenda for a hitherto neglected area of study, Bargaining Power, Wages, and Employment will be of interest to students, academics, and researchers in labor studies, agricultural economics, economic theory, and development studies.

The Harwood Fundamentals of Pure and Applied Economics series was a groundbreaking attempt to provide a comprehensive overview of modern economics. A series of short books - arranged into thematic sections - provides state-of-the-art accounts of key areas within the discipline. Although never completed, the series produced several landmark books. It is notable for: * charting the emergence of vibrant new areas of economics (eg 'positive' political economy) * the numerous examples it gives of major innovations like game theory and the new institutional economics re-vitalizing traditional areas of economics * attracting some of the most talented economists of its generation, including Avinash Dixit, Drew Fudenberg, Thomas Palfrey and Jean Tirole This collection reprints the series in its entirety, making all titles available in hardback for the first time, either as individual volumes, or bound together in mini-sets organized by sub-discipline.

Since the military coup d'tat in 1964 Brazil has experienced a period of almost uninterrupted inflation measured in tens and sometimes hundreds of per cent per year. In this book, originally published in 1991, Vincent Parkin sets out to explain the nature and causes of chronic inflation in middle-income developing countries by focusing on the Brazilian experience. He rejects the monetarist explanation for inflation and argues instead that the relationship between money and inflation is seldom clear-cut. The book will be of interest to all economists concerned with inflation and Latin America.

The policies advocated in this multi-authored book are set to become a benchmark publication in the field internationally. Using South Africa as the model, the research, proposals, and theory, outlines programmes to replace current uneconomic policies and practices that artificially favour big farmers. In order to fulfil the challenges of ensuring efficiency, equity, and growth, market mechanisms are proposed to ensure sustainable redistribution of land and financial support that will favour small farmers.
