During the summer of 2005, filmmaker Gordon Forbes spent three months embedded with the U.S. Marines 3rd Reconnaissance Battalion during their deployment to the Sunni Triangle in Iraq. He documented the daily grind and struggles of the men in Alpha Company as they fought the War on Terror, thousands of miles away from home. While most networks send a crew to shoot only enough footage for a 90-second highlight piece, this three-part documentary covers several operations — from helicopter raids and mounted patrols to everyday interactions with the people of Iraq.
Three platoons, 74 professional Marines — strangers in a strange land … Forbes was in the company of these men inside the wire and out in the field, as they fought an enemy they both despised and respected. We learn about how these Marines view war, their desire for combat and their fears. We see how they deal with extreme heat, the constant threat of IEDs and language barriers with humor. We see them dreaming, playing, frustrated and lonely. These Marines are the husbands, brothers, sons, uncles and citizens of America. Alpha Company: Iraq Diary is a Marine’s story, and not the kind you see on the evening news.

Urbanization beyond Municipal Boundaries: Nurturing Metropolitan Economies and Connecting Peri-Urban Areas in India (Directions

Urbanization beyond Municipal Boundaries: Nurturing Metropolitan Economies and Connecting Peri-Urban Areas in India (Directions in Development) by The World Bank
English | Mar. 28, 2013 | ISBN: 0821398407 | 125 Pages | PDF | 5 MB

Urbanization beyond Municipal Boundaries informs policy priorities to manage India’s urbanization. Incisive analysis of the patterns of India’s urbanization using geo-referenced data from various rounds of the population and economic census highlights rapid suburbanization of people and firms around the country’s largest metropolitan areas. However, the move to the suburbs is accelerated by land and housing shortages in metropolitan cores, coupled with high transport costs between the metropolitan core and its periphery, and much worse infrastructure access and quality for water, electricity, and sanitation in the urban periphery. What are priorities for policy reform?

Income and asset disclosure systems (IAD) are gaining prominence as a tool in the fight against corruption, and have the potential to support efforts in both prevention and enforcement. They are intended to prevent and help detect the use of public office for private gain, and to help build a climate of integrity in public administration by detecting and helping officials avoid potential conflicts of interest. The potential for IAD systems to contribute to broader anticorruption efforts–such as national and international financial investigations and prosecutions, international asset recovery efforts, the prosecution of illicit enrichment, and the identification of politically exposed persons (PEPs) is as yet largely untapped.

Beyond the Annual Budget: Global Experience with Medium Term Expenditure Frameworks (Directions in Development)

Beyond the Annual Budget: Global Experience with Medium Term Expenditure Frameworks (Directions in Development) by World Bank
English | Nov. 12, 2012 | ISBN: 0821396250 | 261 Pages | PDF | 6 MB

What conditions determine the success of Medium Term Expenditure Frameworks (MDTFs)? How should the implementation of MTEFs be sequenced and coordinated with other budget reforms? What role should organizations such as the World Bank, bilateral development partners, and other international agencies play in supporting MTEF adoption? How can country authorities implement a new MTEF or strengthen an existing one?
Fighting Corruption in Public Services: Chronicling Georgia's Reforms (Directions in Development)

Fighting Corruption in Public Services: Chronicling Georgia's Reforms (Directions in Development) by Inc World Book
English | Feb. 9, 2012 | ISBN: 0821394754 | 126 Pages | PDF | 3 MB

Since the Rose Revolution at the end of 2003, Georgia has had singular success in fighting corruption in a variety of public services. This book is an attempt to chronicle these efforts and to distil the ‘how to’ of these anti-corruption reforms. The reason corruption in public services had to be fought was clear. What had to be done was also obvious to many. But little has been written on ‘how’ the government made it happen. What were the salient features of Georgia's anti-corruption reforms? Can Georgia’s success with cleaning up its public services be replicated elsewhere or is it unique? And are the achievements to date in Georgia sustainable?
Fostering Technology Absorption in Southern African Enterprises (Directions in Development)

Fostering Technology Absorption in Southern African Enterprises (Directions in Development) by The World Bank
English | Sep. 16, 2011 | ISBN: 0821388185 | 224 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

While economic theory considers technological progress to be a key factor for sustained long-term economic growth and job creation, technology absorption is particularly an important driver for 'catch-up growth.' This study seeks to identify channels of technology transfer and absorption for Southern African enterprises, constraints to greater technology absorption, and discuss policy options open to governments and the private sector in light of relevant international experience. It has been done based on sector and enterprise case studies carried in four countries: South Africa, Mauritius, Lesotho and Namibia.
