As of 2002 is replaced by Perspectives on Global Development and Technology Journal of Developing Societies online The Journal of Developing Societies, founded in 1984 by K. Ishwaran, Professor Emeritus, is intended as a forum for scholarly analyses of developing, as well as developed world societies and cultures, past and contemporary. It focuses primarily on issues of development and change in their manifold aspects. Theoretical and applied, historically oriented as well as contemporary points of view are within the parameters of the journal. The concept of development is not limited to the so-called contemporary 'third world', but rather focuses on the processes of change in all times and places. The coverage of topics could range from the agricultural revolution to the sociocultural implications of space-age technology, from public policy concerns to entrepreneurial activities, from globalization to individualization. The journal is issued twice a year, in March and September. Every year, one issue is dedicated to a special topic. Scholars from around the globe are invided by the editors of the journal, as Guest Editors, to organize thematic issues related to their area of expertise. In 1997 Joseph G. Jabbra and Nancy W. Jabbra, Loyola Marymount University, edited an outstanding volume on Environmental Issues in the Middle East, and in 1998 Proshanta K. Nandi and Shahid M. Shahidullah, prepared a very interesting issue on Globalization and the Evolving World Society. Articles feature the consequences of resource management, the protection of the marine life in the Arabian Gulf, and other pressing environmental concerns.
