Prague 2000:Why we need to decommission the IMF and the World Bank
A compilation of articles that argue that the "focus of our efforts these days is not to try to reform the multilateral agencies but to deepen the crisis of legitimacy of the whole system." and that that no matter what "reforms" the international financial institutions pull out of the hat this year, they should be judged against the historical record.
A thought provoking collection of articles that lay bare the dynamics, the interlinkages and impact of debt, financial institutions and the making of a Global South.

Melting the Iceberg analyses the oppurtunities and obstacles in the Korean Reconciliation and Reunification process while exloring effective ways of mobilising international support. The biggest challenge is to achieve the substantive democratisation of the peace process and consolidate new alternative aproaches to peace and security, breaking with the Cold War mould of "security deopendency" and embracing a future based on the "globalisation of solidarity".
