This publication is an extension of research in the Division of Sustainable Development and Human Settlements on sustainable development and policy in Latin America and the Caribbean. The syndrome approach to global environmental change proposed by the German Advisory Council on Global Change was previously adapted for the examination of sustainable development in the region, and a potential regional syndrome of agriculturalization in the Argentinean Pampas was proposed and explored by regional experts from an array of disciplines . The syndrome approach is meant to facilitate a transdisciplinary analysis of socio-ecological trends and the identification of patterns of sustainability of development. In order for a causal complex, such as agriculturalization, to be considered a syndrome, it must occur in multiple locations. Thus, the current study compares the process of agriculturalization as it has been described for Argentina to similar processes occurring in Australia in order to assess the utility of this causal complex as a syndrome of sustainability of development and to elucidate some of the complex socio-ecological processes and interactions that occur in agriculture in different regions of the world. A brief examination of the Australian case shows potential for the occurrence of the agriculturalization syndrome in that region and several differences between the two cases illustrate the importance of government policies in the socio-ecological processes of agriculture. In addition, positive aspects of sustainability in Argentinean and Australian agriculture are discussed.--Publisher's description.

In considering Dostoevsky's 'The Idiot', a novel less easily defined in terms of plot and ideas than his other major fictional works, Sarah Young addresses problems in the novel unresolved by previous interpretations, and in doing so fills a significant gap in Dostoevsky studies. 'Dostoevsky's The Idiot and the Ethical Foundations of Narrative' provides an innovative theoretical framework for an analysis that integrates structural and narratological considerations with thematic (religious and ethical) aspects, by focusing on the characters' interactivity as the most fundamental level on which the ethical systems of the novel are enacted. It examines the questions of what ethical bases are put forward by the novel, what faith-issues and philosophical world-views they derive from, and how, in terms of structuring and narration rather than simply thematically, they are presented in the novel. For the first time, through the concept of scripting, the author shows how the ethical becomes the foundation for the narratological in The Idiot. No other book on Dostoevsky has addressed the question of ethics, which is so important to the study of Dostoevsky, particularly in the light of recent work on the religious dimension of his novels, within the context of narrative and Bakhtinian dialogue. This substantial new work will appeal to academics, postgraduates and undergraduates working on Dostoevsky and the nineteenth- and twentieth-century Russian novel in general; as well as scholars in the fields of literary theory, including Bakhtin studies, narratology, literature and ethics.
