  • The Handbook of Global Outsourcing and Offshoring

    The global offshore outsourcing market for IT and business services exceeded $55 billion in 2008 and some estimates suggest an annual growth rate of 20% over the next five years. Furthermore, over 200 firms from the Forbes 2000 companies and 50 per cent of the Fortune Global 500 had offshored IT and business process activities through captive centres, making a total of about $9bn of business. The phenomenon of offshoring and offshore-outsourcing is certainly expanding. It has become increasingly important to understand the phenomenon, not least as a basis for suggesting what directions it will take, its impacts, how it has been conducted, and how its management can be better facilitated. This book offers a broad perspective on various issues relating to the sourcing of systems and business processes in a national and global context. The authors examine both the client's and the vendor's involvement in sourcing relationships by putting the emphasis on the capabilities that each side should develop prior to entering a relationship but also that they should develop as a result of their interactions with each other.

  • The Nazi Seance: The Strange Story of the Jewish Psychic in Hitler's Circle

    World War I left Berlin, and all of Germany, devastated.Charlatans and demagogues eagerly exploited the desperate crowds. Fascination with the occult was everywhere - in private seances, personalized psychic readings, communions with the dead - as people struggled to escape the grim reality of their lives. In the early 1930s, the most famous mentalist in the German capital was Erik Jan Hanussen, a Jewish mind reader who became so popular that he rubbed elbows with high ranking Nazis, became close with top Storm Troopers, and even advised Hitler. Assuming he could manipulate the Nazis as he had manipulated his fans, Hanussenturned his occult newspaper in Berlin into a Nazi propaganda paper, personally assured Hitler that the stars were aligned in his favor, and predicted the infamous Reichstag Fire that would solidify the Nazis' grip on Germany. Seasoned with ruminations about wonder and magic (and explanations of Hanussen's tricks), The Nazi Seance is a disturbing journey into a Germany as it descends into madness - aided by a "clairvoyant" Jew oblivious to the savagery of men who pursued a Reich they fantasized would last 1,000 years.

  • Between Faith and Doubt: Dialogues on Religion and Reason


    This book takes the form of a dialogue between the internationally renowned philosopher of religion John Hick and someone anyone who is a religious skeptic or is somewhere between faith and doubt. Neither of them is dogmatic and their discussion is honest and fair. It covers a range of questions:
     

    • Is the pervasively skeptical character of today s culture well founded or only an assumption?
    • Is the usual idea of God viable, and if not what is the alternative?
    • Can God s existence be proved?
    • Is religious experience authentic, particularly in the light of modern neuroscience?
    • What about the contradictory beliefs of the different religions?
    • Can we have religion without transcendence, as advocate by the Sea of Faith movement?
    • Can there be a good God, or a friendly universe, when there is so much pain and suffering?
    • Can there be a life after death?

    Between Faith and Doubt also includes some fascinating autobiographical revelations: of Hick s evangelical conversion and subsequent development to much more liberal beliefs, of being involved in a heresy trial, of being in an earthquake, his own powerful religious experience, and witnessing a materializing seance. This short, briliantly written book is and accessible and concise way of understanding both Hick's views, and quickly gaining a grasp of some of the central issues in philosophy of religion.

  • Patrick Pearse: The Making of a Revolutionary

    Patrick Pearse was not only the leader of the 1916 Easter Rising but also one of the main ideologues of physical-force nationalism in Ireland. For a long time, his ideas have either been dismissed or portrayed as dubious because of his association with the use of violence in Northern Ireland. However, the recent 'Peace Process' and the modernisation of Irish society have made it possible to now take a fresh look at this founding father of the Irish state. Based on a wealth of new material on his childhood and underground activities, this first full biography in more than thirty years provides an intimate and revealing account of Pearse's life, and of the development of his ideas on Irish culture, education, and politics. The integrated approach reveals how Pearse gave his own interpretation of ideas that were current in European society at the time, while Augusteijn also offers the first comprehensive analysis of his impact on Ireland after his death.

  • The Currency of Power: The IMF and Monetary Reform in Central Asia

    States aggressively defend their right to make national monetary policy choices as a fundamental sovereign prerogative. This book examines how the International Monetary Fund engages in the politics of ideas to shape monetary system change in conditions of extreme economic uncertainty. Drawing on case studies from post-Soviet Central Asia, Andre Broome explains that how governments interpret their policy options mediates the IMF's influence over policy reform in periods of financial crisis. The book also shows how IMF staff play a larger role in determining access to loans than is often recognized by scholars who focus on major power influence on the IMF. By acting as a reputational intermediary, the IMF attempts to boost its impact on national policy reform in exchange for improving the sovereign creditworthiness of borrower states, but its influence over the implementation of formal policy changes is often frustrated by everyday politics.

  • Overlapping Generations Economies

    Written for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, this is an important textbook in the field of overlapping generations economies. Starting with the existence of equilibrium and the optimality of allocations, the discussion then turns to properties of equilibria, including the existence of fluctuations and sunspot equilibria, and ends with applications of the theories of exchange rates and endogenous growth. Throughout the book the author stresses the important concept that the positive value of money and equilibrium allocations need not be optimal. Another important feature is that overlapping generations economies are compared to optimal growth economies to illustrate the differences between the two types of economies. The book also includes introductions to consumer theory for the differentiable consumer and production theory for the differentiable firm.

  • Favored Daughter

    As America prepares to draw down its forces in Afghanistan, this story of survival and hope from a voice of the country's most oppressed group could not be more timely. Born to the second of her father's seven wives in rural Afghanistan, Fawzia Koofi's mother--who had hoped for a son--left her to die in the sun after birth. But despite a childhood of abuse and deprivation in a notoriously sexist society, she rose above her fate to become the first female Speaker of Parliament. Along the way, she faced the murders of her father, brother, and husband, and numerous attempts on her life. Here, she shares her amazing story, punctuated by a series of poignant letters she wrote to her two daughters before each political trip--letters describing the future and freedoms she dreamed of for them and all their countrywomen. This eloquent memoir pleads for the world to recognize the politically devastating consequences if a frustrated American military relinquishes the country to the Taliban, undoing all the fragile progress of recent years.

  • Consolidation in the European Financial Industry


    This book examines the consolidation process that has taken place within the financial system of the European Union. One distinctive feature of this process in the case of Europe is the growing number of cross-border and cross-sector M&As, a key factor in the integration of the credit and financial markets. Unfortunately, this process has not been accompanied by the introduction of effective regulation and supervision for the groups formed, an asymmetry made all too clear at the peak of the financial crisis, by the implosion of two of Europe's largest cross-border, cross-sector groups, Fortis and Dexia, and the subsequent rescue operations.

    With the aid of case studies on operations carried out in the last decade, this book looks for pointers to the best future role of corporate governance of intermediaries and financial regulation and supervision.

  • New Critical Essays on Kurt Vonnegut

    Kurt Vonnegut's darkly comic work became a symbol for the counterculture of a generation. From his debut novel, Player Piano (1951) through seminal 1960's novels such as Cat's Cradle (1963) and Slaughterhouse-Five (1969) up to the recent success of A Man Without A Country (2005), Vonnegut's writing has remained commercially popular, offering a satirical yet optimistic outlook on modern life. Though many fellow writers admired Vonnegut - Gore Vidal famously suggesting that "Kurt was never dull" - the academic establishment has tended to retain a degree of scepticism concerning the validity of his work. This dynamic collection aims to re-evaluate Vonnegut's position as an integral part of the American post-war cannon of literature.

  • Sport Politics: An Introduction

    This innovative new text examines sport's relationship with politics and argues that sport has always been political, even as far back as antiquity. However, in the last 30 years there has been an unprecedented politicization of sport through increasing government intervention.

    Jonathan Grix takes a comprehensive and engaging look at sport politics by examining state involvement in initiatives from sports mega-events through to grass-roots and community sport activities. Providing an accessible introduction to this growing area of study, the text examines a number of approaches to the topic - including theories from Political Science, Sociology and International Relations - and adopts a critical framework throughout. In doing so the text discusses the relationship between social capital and sport, how governments use sport for non-sporting objectives and the role of governance in sport policy. Real-world examples demonstrate just how entwined sport and politics are: from ardent soccer fans effectively 'locked-in' by ever-increasing ticket prices, to taxpayer's money funding ever more extravagant international sports mega-events, to the moral and political implications of doping.

  • Tolkien, Race and Cultural History

    Tolkien, Race and Cultural History, in paperback for the first time, explores the evolution of Tolkien's mythology by examining how it changed as a result of Tolkien's life story and contemporary cultural and intellectual history. The book considers Tolkien's creative writing as an ever-developing 'legendarium': an interconnected web of stories, poems and essays, from his early poems in the 1910s to his latest writings in the early 1970s. Consequently, the book is not restricted to a discussion of Tolkien's best-known works only (The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion) but examines the whole corpus of his legendarium, including the 12-volume History of Middle-earth series, which has received little attention from critics. This new approach and scope brings to light neglected aspects of Tolkien's imaginative vision and addresses key features of Tolkien's creativity: the centrality of the Elves and the role of linguistic invention in his legendarium, as well as race and material culture in Middle-earth.

  • Minding the Markets: An Emotional Finance View of Financial Instability

    The 2008 financial crisis showed that human emotion has a critical impact on financial markets. Until now, economic theories have failed to take this into account. At the heart of the worst financial crisis in world history was a failure to organise markets in a way that adequately controls the very human emotion and behaviour which trading unleashes.



    The newly established discipline of 'emotional finance', pioneered by David Tuckett, draws on principles of psychoanalysis to enable financial markets to be understood in a completely new way.



    By recognising the crucial role played by unconscious needs and fears, the influence of groups and the nature of uncertainty in all investment activity, Minding The Markets provides a deeper understanding of the markets and timely ideas about how to incorporate that understanding into policies to make markets safer.



    Based on candid and in-depth interviews with over 50 fund managers internationally, this groundbreaking book not only presents a fresh academic theory, but also reveals the truth about what happens in the emotionally-charged real world of financial trading.

  • Info-Gap Economics: An Operational Introduction

    After every crisis economists and policy analysts ask: can better models help prevent or ameliorate such situations? This book provides an answer. Yes, quantitative models can help if we remember that they are rough approximations to a vastly more complex reality. Models can help if we include realistic but simple representations of uncertainty among our models, and if we retain the pre-eminence of human judgment over the churning of our computers.

    Info-gap theory is a new method for modeling and managing severe uncertainty. The core of the book presents detailed examples of info-gap analysis of decisions in monetary policy, financial economics, environmental economics for pollution control and climate change, estimation and forecasting. This book is essential reading for economic policy analysts and researchers.

  • Places: Identity, Image and Reputation

    Places depend on their reputations for almost everything in the modern world: tourism, foreign investment, the respect and interest of the international media, attracting talented immigrants and students, cultural exchanges, engaging peacefully and productively with the governments of other places. But what can actually be done to understand and measure the reputations of places, and even to influence them? Are they simply 'brand images' like the images of products, that can be influenced at will by the tricks and techniques of commercial marketing? Or are they, as Simon Anholt argues, deeply rooted cultural phenomena that move if they move at all very slowly, and only in response to major events and changes in the places themselves? This new collection of essays by the 'father of place branding', Simon Anholt, reveals compelling and essential new thinking on the nature of national reputation.

  • Wallenstein: The Enigma of the Thirty Years War


    A minor Bohemian nobleman who within the space of a few years became a prince and one of the greatest landowners of his age; a military entrepreneur who twice saved the Holy Roman Emperor from disaster with armies he raised, financed and led, but was then twice dismissed; an able general who rescued the Empire from invasion by the Swedish King Gustavus II Adolphus, but was accused of planning to defect to the self-same Swedes; the emperor's commander-in-chief, but assassinated on the emperor's orders; a successful soldier who fell because he tried too hard to make peace; Wallenstein was all these things. Contemporary legends and propaganda were taken up by early biographers of this fascinating character to create a historical myth, elements of which are still present in many more recent accounts. In this book, Geoff Mortimer sets out to clarify the picture and to resolve the enigma.

  • Brandstorm: Surviving and Thriving in the New Consumer-Led Marketplace

    Branding has become ubiquitous, with new brands becoming word-of-mouth successes literally overnight, and many welcome the easy familiarity they bring to daily life. But now brand proliferation is threatening not only to stifle true choice in the marketplace, but to render hard-won brand identities - some decades in the making - meaningless. With today's unprecedented access to thousands of brands a day, via Twitter, Facebook, and the rest, the balance of brand power is shifting irrevocably away from the businesses behind them. In Brandstorm, branding guru Liz Nickles argues that, as a result, the brand is no longer a value proposition in itself, and that marketers and brand managers must stop the dilution and focus on meaningful, market-specific reinvention for those brands that can stand the test of time. She offers the success secrets behind leading brands like Ralph Lauren, Justin Bieber, and Revlon, and how to channel them today.

Here, he marries his own observations with the predictions of these tech giants to offer a surprising and timely look at the second stealth revolution in the Middle East - one that promises to reinvent it as a center of innovation and progress.

    Bloody Pacific tells the real story of the attitudes and behaviour of American fighting men in the war against Japan, revealing much about the nature of this terrifying conflict that has until now remained unknown.

  • Women's Bodies and Medical Science: An Inquiry into Cervical Cancer

    In 1987 a scandal erupted in New Zealand, following allegations that a doctor at National Women's Hospital had allowed some women to develop cervical cancer while conducting research into the disease. An official inquiry concluded that doctors had failed their patients. This book revisits that important episode in New Zealand's social and medical history, examining the factors which led to the Inquiry and whether it was correct in its assessment that patient welfare had been compromised in the interest of science. In addressing that question crucial aspects within the history of medicine and public health are explored - the use and interpretation of medical technology, randomized controlled trials, population screening, public understandings of science, the status of doctors in the late twentieth century, and doctor-patient relationships. This history of the interface of medicine with society in the second half of the twentieth century has relevance well beyond New Zealand.

  • The Swedish Financial Revolution

    How could Sweden go from a financially backward country to one with a well-functioning financial system? Why did this financial revolution occur after the mid-nineteenth century and not before? What was the role of politics and what was the role of economics in this change? What did this financial revolution mean for the economic development, market integration and financial crises? These are some of the issues explored in this book. Today the existence of a financial system might be taken for granted in all economically developed countries. It is hard to imagine society without one. Despite financial setbacks and problems, as today during the financial crisis, there is no doubt that a well-functioning financial system promotes economic wealth. However, in Sweden finance was, for a long time and until recently, a matter that concerned only a few people. During a short period of time from the 1850s to the 1870s many institutional and organizational changes spurred a rapidly increasing financial deepening that took off in the late 1860s. But as finance becomes a matter for the general public, so do financial crises. This books tells us why and how this financial revolution took place and how it affected not only all sectors of the economy but also politics

  • Ricordanza pour Violoncelle et piano

    The study of social innovation offers the opportunity to grapple with the central real-world challenges of our time. Indeed, rather than conceptualizing social innovation as a subset of technological-economic innovation, it may be the case that the reverse now makes a more compelling case. As this volume underlines, social innovation offers potential solutions to climate change, the crisis of the welfare state, health pandemics and failures, social dislocation and inequality, and educational failure. The need to address - if not solve - these 'wicked problems' presents us with global challenges that will become increasingly evident in all our everyday lives. It is, therefore, the ultimate purpose of this book to suggest that a focus on the sixth wave of social innovation represents not only a scholarly opportunity but a global imperative.

  • Why Music Moves Us

    Surely you've experienced it before: you're listening to a piece of music and all of a sudden you find a lump in your throat, a tear in your eye, or a chill down your spine. Whether it's Beethoven's Choral Symphony or The Verve's Bittersweet Symphony, a bit of blues or a bit of baroque, music has the power to move us. It's a language which we all speak. But why does it have this effect on us? What is going on, emotionally, physically and cognitively when listeners have strong emotional responses to music? What, if anything, do such responses mean? Can they tell us anything about ourselves? Jeanette Bicknell uses research in philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, and anthropology to address these questions, ultimately showing us that the reason why some music tends to arouse powerful experiences in listeners is inseparable from the reason why any music matters at all. Musical experience is a social one, and that is fundamental to its attractions and power over us.

  • Feminism and Contemporary Indian Women's Writing

    Elizabeth Jackson conducts a developmental and comparative study of feminist concerns expressed through the novels of the four best-known and most prolific Indian female authors writing in English during the latter half of the twentieth century: Kamala Markandaya, Nayantara Sahgal, Anita Desai, and Shashi Deshpande. The introduction situates their work within its Indian historical and political context, and each of the five chapters explores an area of particular relevance to their fictional writing: Women, Cultural Identity and Social Class; Marriage and Sexuality; Motherhood and Other Work; Women's Role in Maintaining and/or Resisting Patriarchy; and Form and Narrative Strategy. Each chapter is contextualised with a brief survey of Indian and western feminist approaches to the particular area under consideration. Feminism and Contemporary Indian Women's Writing explores areas of commonality and divergence between Indian and 'western' feminisms, highlighting the limits of both approaches to suggest future directions for feminism itself.

  • Understanding International Relations

    The fourth edition of this well-established and popular introductory textbook has been updated to cover recent developments in the field of International Relations and world events, whilst still navigating the complexities of the discipline for new students. Brown and Ainley provide systematic coverage of the classical concerns of International Relations theory - power, national interest, foreign policy and war - alongside analysis of the impact of globalization on security, governance and the world economy.

    The authors actively avoid using a singular theoretical lens to conduct their survey, instead evaluating and using many throughout this book to further illustrate the nuances of the discipline. This is all while maintaining the focus on the discipline's focus on real world events, with case studies ranging from the recent rise of China and Russia to the global economic downturn, to teach students how the discipline can be applied to understanding the central and difficult questions that the world faces today.

    Clear and accessible, but also critical and penetrating, this book is an essential text for undergraduate International Relations students today.

  • Emerging Infectious Diseases and Society


    By the 1970s, medicine appeared to have conquered infectious diseases. A century before, newly discovered germ theory had laid the foundations for advances in vaccines and antibiotics, but deaths and illness from infectious diseases had been declining in the developed world even before this 'golden age' of medicine. Infectious diseases were perceived as archaic, and future health threats seemed to come from so-called diseases of civilization, such as heart disease and cancer.

    The appearance of AIDS in the early 1980s radically reversed that trend, and since then over thirty new infectious diseases have been classified, including mad cow disease and antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria, such as MRSA. Furthermore, old threats, such as tuberculosis, have re-emerged as they have become immune to established treatments.

    This fascinating study charts the rise of new infectious diseases and examines the cultural context and anxieties that surround their emergence, revealing the underlying social and political concerns that determine our response to disease in the 21st century.

  • Foucault's Archaeology of Political Economy

    Michel Foucault was one of the greatest thinkers of the 20th Century, having strongly influenced a large number of disciplines. He has played a fundamental role in the construction of new ways of thinking and radical changes in the development of Western thought.

    This book reconstructs and assesses Michel Foucault's writings on the archaeology of knowledge, focusing on the emergence of political economy. It relates it to three main areas of research in economics: methodology, historiography and studies on Adam Smith's context and writings. The volume demonstrates how Foucault went beyond offering a reinterpretation of the history of political economy, examining his inspiring notions and ideas. It provides a critical examination on how Foucault's archaeology relates to current debates in economics today.

    This book is indispensable reading for all interested in the history and methodology of economics.

  • The Economics of Welfare

    In The Economics of Welfare, originally published in 1920, Pigou reconceptualized economics as a science of economic welfare, in the course of which he developed the first systematic theory of market failures. Employing Alfred Marshall's theoretical framework and the utilitarian logic of Henry Sidgwick, he argued that the Smithian 'system of natural liberty' can fail to maximise economic welfare in three crucial spheres. Economic transactions grounded in the free play of self-interest may achieve a suboptimal allocation of resources by producing spillovers; they may maldistribute the national income, damaging much of the population; and they may generate business cycles, causing unemployment as well as income and consumption instabilities. In his analysis of how to repair these failures, Pigou made an elaborate, carefully reasoned case that interventions in otherwise unfettered markets may be in order.

    This reissued classic includes a new introduction by Nahid Aslanbeigui and Guy Oakes, who offer fresh ideas on The Economics of Welfare as a treatise that cannot be reduced to a programmatic collection of taxes and subsidies designed to maximise economic welfare. They also spell out the implications of Pigou's thought for contemporary economics.

  • The Handbook of Global Outsourcing and Offshoring

    A fully revised and updated edition of this essential book from the world's leading outsourcing experts.

    The global outsourcing market for IT and business services exceeded $485 billion in 2011 and is set to grow at 8-10% per annum until 2015. Of this, $65 billion was offshore outsourcing where some estimates suggest an annual growth rate of 15-20% over the next five years. Furthermore, over 50 per cent of the Fortune Global 500 had offshored IT and business process activities through captive centres, representing $9 billion of business. The expansion of outsourcing and offshoring, and the emergence of new sourcing models are challenging existing management practices. It has become increasingly important to understand the phenomena, not least as a basis for suggesting what directions it will take, its impacts, how it has been conducted, and how its management can be better facilitated.

    This book offers a broad perspective on various issues relating to the sourcing of IT and business processes and services in a company, national and global contexts. The authors examine both the client's and the vendor's involvement in sourcing relationships by putting the emphasis on the capabilities that each side should develop prior to entering a relationship but also that they should develop as a result of their interactions with each other.

  • Migration Literature and Hybridity: The Different Speeds of Transcultural Change

    Migration Literature and Hybridity reinvigorates the study of postcolonial hybridity by offering a way out of the theoretical deadlock of pitting hybridity against purity or flux against fixity. The book theorises hybridity primarily in terms of time and develops Bakhtin's notions of organic and intentional hybridity in ways that enable us to work with several speeds of becoming, hybridisation and cultural change. Through Deleuze's theory of becoming and Lotman's cultural semiotics, the book proposes intentional and organic hybridity as two extremes on a continuum ranging from transcultural change as fast and highly visible to transcultural change as largely obscured and very slow - the latter being the condition of any supposedly pure culture. The theory of the first part of the book is expounded in three detailed studies of Mukherjee's Jasmine, Mahjoub's The Carrier and Naipaul's The Enigma of Arrival that engage the entire spectrum of hybridity from the enunciation of delirious transcultural change to hybridity as a slow 'changing sameness'. The readings illustrate how a more comprehensive engagement with transcultural literature is enabled once we leave behind the mere celebration of contemporary migration and its hybrid heroes.

  • The Myth of Martyrdom: What Really Drives Suicide Bombers, Rampage Shooters, and Other Self-Destructive Killers

    A startling look at the deepest, darkest secrets that terrorists pray you'll never know.

    For decades, experts from the most powerful governments and prestigious universities around the world have told us that suicide bombers are psychologically normal men and women driven by a single-minded purpose: self-sacrifice. As it turns out, this claim originated with the terrorist leaders themselves, who insisted that they would never recruit mentally unstable people to carry out suicide attacks. As these strikes have become both increasingly common and increasingly deadly, no one has challenged this conventional wisdom. These are fearless ideological warriors, we're told, who have the same resolve and commitment to their beliefs as our own Navy SEALs, because they're willing to die for the sake of their cause.

    In The Myth of Martyrdom, Adam Lankford argues that these so-called experts have it all wrong. The truth is that most suicide terrorists are like any other suicidal person longing to escape from unbearable pain, be it depression, anxiety, marital strife, or professional failure. Their 'martyrdom' is essentially a cover for an underlying death wish. Drawing on an array of primary sources, including suicide notes, love letters, diary entries, and martyrdom videos, Lankford reveals the important parallels that exist between suicide bombers, airplane hijackers, cult members, and rampage shooters. The result is an astonishing account of rage and shame that will transform the way we think of terrorism forever.

    We can't hope to stop these deadly attacks, Lankford argues, until we understand what's really behind them. This timely and provocative book flips a decades-old argument on its head and has huge implications for our future.

Les avantages, non exhaustifs, de la formation musicale par l'orchestre : - un rapport beaucoup plus direct et moins abstrait entre le solfege et la pratique instrumentale (tout l'apprentissage solfegique etant directement lie a l'instrument que l'eleve a choisi) - passer par l'oral avant l'ecrit - une formation auditive plus developpee, due aux partitions interpretees par differents instrumentistes - une meilleure comprehension/analyse des oeuvres proposees grace a la pratique instrumentale - developper l'autonomie de l'eleve - la pratique instrumentale collective au sein de ce cours donnera l'envie (des que l'eleve aura le niveau suffisant) de rejoindre un des ensembles instrumentaux du conservatoire ou de l'ecole de musique Chaque volume de Symphonic FM se presente sous la forme d'un livre de l'eleve (choisi en fonction de l'instrument pratique) et d'un livre du professeur. A partir du volume 5, nous avons change la presentation des livres des eleves pour des raisons pratiques (densite de l'ouvrage). Il y a desormais : un cahier principal comportant ce qui est commun a tous les instruments + une partie separee specifique a chaque instrument comportant les duos instrumentaux, les versions instrumentales des chants et les pratiques instrumentales. Ainsi, chaque eleve achetera non plus le correspondant a la famille de son instrument mais le cahier de son propre instrument

  • Premediation: Affect and Mediality After 9/11

    The terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001 have been called the world s live global media event. Responding to the immediacy and collective shock produced by live coverage of the collapse of the Twin Towers, print, televisual, and networked media have become obsessed with the pre-mediation of potential futures.

    In an era of heightened securitization, US and global media have attempted to prevent a recurrence of such media trauma by ensuring that no future will be able to emerge into the present that has not already been premeditated in the past. Socially networked US and global media work to premediate collective affects of anticipation and connectivity, while also perpetuating low levels of apprehension or fear.

    Following up on the groundbreaking work of media theory Remediation: Understanding New Media, Grusin develops the logic of premediation in terms of such concepts as mediality, the affective life of media, and the anticipation of security.

  • The Civil Rights Movement: Struggle and Resistance


    Praise for the book when it was first published:
    'William T. Martin Riches has written a book for undergraduates and general audiences that provides an excellent introduction to and review of the U.S. civil rights movement'
    - Michael D. Cary, History: Review of New Books

    The Civil Rights Movement in the United States struggled to create a nation. The Civil War ended de jure slavery but it needed the movement to dismantle laws designed to keep African Americans subordinated to white power. In this compelling introduction, William T. Martin Riches analyses the way African Americans developed a mass movement after World War II and overthrew state-enforced racial segregation despite fierce resistance from whites. Riches emphasises how the movement influenced others seeking justice in America, and evaluates the coalitions formed to preserve gains threatened by the rise of the New Right.

    Thoroughly revised and updated in the light of the latest scholarship, the third edition of The Civil Rights Movement:
    sets the movement in its broader context
    stresses the changing role of black women, and their problems with the women's movement and black nationalism
    demonstrates the positive influence on some white southerners
    explores the key role played by the state and federal judiciaries
    assesses the administrations of George W. Bush
    examines the rise of Neo-Conservatism
    covers the presidential election campaign of 2008 and analyses Barack Obama's first months in office.

    William T. Martin Riches was formerly Senior Lecturer and Convenor of American Studies at the University of Ulster, Jordanstown.

  • Pole Dancing, Empowerment and Embodiment


    This book, the first of its kind, examines pole dancing classes, which are held in more than 50 countries worldwide. This study draws on original qualitative data collected in the UK, Australia and the US with participants who attended pole dancing classes and their instructors. Using pole dancing classes as a starting point for a wider discussion about gendered physicality, body image and embodiment, leisure, empowerment and pleasure, the voices of the participants are placed alongside current discourses, drawing on leisure, gender and cultural studies and sociology to reveal a phenomenon with many contradictions: for example, the recurring theme of participants disliking physical exercise, but of feeling liberated, and even empowered, by pole classes. Such findings challenge the image of pole classes as sexualized and objectifying. The book also examines such topics as men and pole and the worldwide pole community.

  • What Chinese Want: Culture, Communism and China's Modern Consumer

    Today, most Americans take for granted that China will be the next global superpower. But despite the nation's growing influence, the average Chinese person is still a mystery - or, at best, a baffling set of seeming contradictions - to Westerners who expect the rising Chinese consumer to resemble themselves. Here, Tom Doctoroff, the guiding force of advertising giant J. Walter Thompson's (JWT) China operations, marshals his 20 years of experience navigating this fascinating intersection of commerce and culture to explain the mysteries of China. He explores the many cultural, political, and economic forces shaping the twenty-first-century Chinese and their implications for businesspeople, marketers, and entrepreneurs - or anyone else who wants to know what makes the Chinese tick. Dismantling common misconceptions, Doctoroff provides the context Westerners need to understand the distinctive worldview that drives Chinese businesses and consumers, including:
    - why family and social stability take precedence over individual self-expression and the consequences for education, innovation, and growth;
    - their fundamentally different understanding of morality, and why Chinese tolerate human rights abuses, rampant piracy, and endemic government corruption; and
    -the long and storied past that still drives decision making at corporate, local, and national levels.

    Change is coming fast and furious in China, challenging not only how the Western world sees the Chinese but how they see themselves. From the new generation's embrace of Christmas to the middle-class fixation with luxury brands; from the exploding senior demographic to what the Internet means for the government's hold on power, Doctoroff pulls back the curtain to reveal a complex and nuanced picture of a facinating people whose lives are becoming ever more entwined with our own.

  • Obsession pour Hautbois seul

    Research indicates that the integrity demonstrated by a business can have a positive effect on its bottom line. The challenge is to not only embrace and voice ethical principles, but to also practice them in all business transactions. When the world knows that a business can be trusted to act ethically, the results show up not only in higher profits but also in lower employee turnover and better customer relations. This volume of research reinforces our comprehension of marketing as more than a functional area of organisations; marketing spans the boundaries of the enterprise and is the nexus for many of its stakeholders. Therefore, the reader will find chapters relating not only to typical marketing activities such as advertising but also about the importance of communicating ethics in the banking industry and the ethical concerns of promoting tourism. For it is not a matter of simply behaving ethically but of voicing that behavior and the resulting impact of it on the company, on the consumer, on the shareholder and on society as a whole. Practitioners and educators will find useful insights that will permit them to understand the different and conflicting perspectives on ethical dilemmas in marketing and communications, to propose and defend the 'best' ethical response to the situation and to accept that there are consequences for each of those involved in the decision. Ethical dilemmas are often multifold, requiring the individual to explore, differentiate and choose among conflicting loyalties. The countries that provide the setting for the research in this book include China, France, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.

  • Postcolonial Environments: Nature, Culture and the Contemporary Indian Novel in English

    The talk of a catastrophic contemporary environmental crisis is all around us. Yet the relationship between such a crises and literary and cultural forms remains relatively unexamined. This book offers a way to think about this relationship by reading a number of key contemporary Indian novels alongside accounts of the severely stressed ecology and environment of the country. In doing so, postcolonial environments also suggests a new alignment between the theoretical fields of postcolonial and environmental studies.

  • Corporate Social Responsibility: Comparative Critiques

    Corporate Social Responsibility has attracted a great deal of discussion and debate in the current phase of neoliberal globalization, both as a conceptual framework and as an apparently fresh facet of corporate culture, particularly with regard to business ethics, social and environmental sustainability, and human rights. While the corporate world is increasingly seen to be articulating its regard for social responsibility, critics continue to see this more as a myth than a reality. They point out that corporate capital is, in the final analysis, interested in accumulation alone. In this fascinating volume, a group of internationally renowned scholars discuss the discourses, practices and perspectives on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) across a wide range of multicultural and multi-ethnic experiences from Canada, Europe, Latin America, Africa and Asia.

  • Financial Globalization: Growth, Integration, Innovation and Crisis


    The significance of financial globalization has sharply increased due to the current global financial crisis and the so-called Great Recession, which was sparked by the sub-prime mortgage debacle in the United Kingdom and the United States. After the failure of Northern Rock in September 2007, the world economy experienced what is arguably its most serious financial crisis since the Great Depression. It brusquely stopped three decades of expansion in the international capital markets. The crisis, and a nascent recovery in late 2009 and early 2010, has altered the global economic and financial landscape in numerous fundamental ways. Against this backdrop of profound transformation, this book focuses on the contemporary era of financial globalization.

    Dilip Das explores the academic and policy debates of this contemporary phase, delving into its most significant issues. He analyses the economic and financial forces which have been its principal drivers, as well as the important role that politics has had in shaping it. Whilst presenting the complete picture, he examines throughout the book the circumstances under which financial globalization can be welfare-enhancing and lead to rapid economic growth. He looks at the policy structure which is needed in order for a positive impact of financial globalization to overwhelm its negative ramifications.

    Readers will find in this book the latest knowledge and concepts on several important themes on financial globalization, presented in a manner in which they can appreciate and absorb them as well as use them as input in their own decision making.

  • Innovations in Financing Public Services: Country Case Studies

    Compared with coverage of organizational innovation, public sector financial innovation has tended to be neglected in the literature.

In this book alternative and innovative public finance methods are highlighted and assessed, including new forms of private, mutual municipal, public-private and reverse state funding of public investments, co-payments and shared contributions, vouchers, and pooled public risk-financing. Case studies cover the Nordic countries, UK, Spain, Slovenia, Slovakia, Turkey and South Korea and provide detailed how-to-do practical guidance for implementation of these innovative funding methods.

  • The Shah

    Though his monarchy was toppled in 1979 and he died in 1980, Mohammad-Reza Shah Pahlevi, the last Shah of Iran, remains relevant today. He was a social reformer, a romantic egomaniac, and a deeply conflicted man and leader. Here, internationally respected author Abbas Milani gives us the definitive biography, more than ten years in the making, of the monarch who shaped Iran's modern age and with it the contemporary politics of the Middle East. The Shah's was a life filled with contradiction--he built schools, increased equality for women, and greatly reduced the power of the Shia clergy. He made Iran a global power and nationalized his country's many natural resources. But he was deeply conflicted and insecure in his powerful role. Intolerant of political dissent, he was eventually overthrown by the very people whose loyalty he so desperately sought. This comprehensive and gripping account shows us how Iran went from politically moderate monarchy to totalitarian Islamic republic. Milani reveals the complex and sweeping road that would bring the United States and Iran to where they are today.

  • Joseph Goebbels: Life and Death

    Joseph Goebbels was the most notorious demagogue of the twentieth century, and Hitler's closest confidant. This book uses his complete diary from 1923-1945, only recently released from the Soviet Union, to present a challenging new interpretation of his life. It charts Goebbels' rise from provincial obscurity in the Rhineland, through his emergence as the most dynamic speaker of the Nazi Party and the Gauleiter of Berlin in the 1920s, to his appointment as Hitler's Propaganda Minister in 1933. Combining analysis of Goebbels' relationships with women and of his political career, it argues that there were clear threads running through his life, from a turbulent adolescence through to his death. Goebbels' love of German culture, his obsession with 'sacrifice', his fascination for Hitler, and his hatred of the Jews led him into a fatal involvement with German politics which culminated in his suicide, together his wife and six children, in Hitler's bunker in 1945.

  • Market-Driven Management: Strategic and Operational Marketing

    Market-Driven Management adopts a broad approach to marketing, integrating the strategic and operational elements of the discipline. Lambin's unique approach reflects how marketing operates empirically, as both a business philosophy and an action-oriented process. Motivated by the increased complexity of markets, globalisation, deregulation, and the development of e-commerce, the author challenges the traditional concept of the 4Ps and the functional roles of marketing departments, focusing instead on the concept of market orientation. The book considers all of the key market stakeholders, arguing that developing market relations and enhancing customer value is the responsibility of every member of the organization, and that the development of this customer value is the only way for a firm to achieve profit and growth. New to this edition: - Greater coverage of ethical issues and corporate social responsibility; cultural diversity; value and branding and the economic downturn - Broad international perspective - Thoroughly revised to reflect the latest academic thinking and research With its unique approach, international cases and complementary online resources, this book is ideal for postgraduate and upper level undergraduate students of marketing, and for MBAs and Executive MBAs.

  • The Cost of Capital

    As investors, as managers, or in our various capacities, we learn from experience to deal with everyday financial problems and to respond rationally to the ever changing economic environment. However, to optimize our decision making, we need more than rules of thumb. We need to understand our choices, and the reasons market players behave the way they do. <BR>The cost of capital is a topic of particular interest in the current financial tumultuous times. <BR>In this book Dr. Porras provides a comprehensive overview of the subject, contextualizing the relationship between risk, return and the cost of capital by relating it to the needs of investors and borrowers, the historical evidence, and theories of choice and behavior. The content spans financial theory, its empirical tests and applications to real-world contemporary financial problems. The applied focus of this book provides answers to the questions most managers might have, in an entertaining style. It includes simple numerical examples and graphs to help understanding of the concepts.<BR>

  • The Big Flatline: Oil and the No-Growth Economy

    In an urgent follow-up to his best-selling "Why Your World Is About To Get A Whole Lot Smaller," Jeff Rubin argues that the end of cheap oil means the end of growth. What it will be like to live in a world where growth is over? Economist and resource analyst Jeff Rubin is certain that the world's governments are getting it wrong. Instead of moving us toward economic recovery, the measures being taken around the globe right now are digging us into a deeper hole. Both politicians and economists are missing the fact that the real engine of economic growth has always been cheap, abundant fuel and resources. But that era is over. The end of cheap oil, Rubin argues, signals the end of growth--and the end of easy answers to renewing prosperity. With China and India sucking up the lion's share of the world's ever more limited resources, the rest of us will have to make do with less. But is this all bad? Rubin points out that there is no research to show that people living in countries with hard-charging economies are happier, and plenty of research to show that some of the most contented people on the planet live in places with no growth or slow growth. But bad or good, it's the new reality, and Rubin reveals how our day-to-day lives will be drastically changed.

  • Principles of Economics

    Originally published in 1890, "Principles of Economics" was the first text to bring together the theories of supply and demand, marginal utility, and cost of production into a coherent whole. It introduced a number of new concepts which have formed the building blocks of modern microeconomics and underpin modern-day business strategy. Explored concepts include: elasticity of demand--how consumer demand for a good or service is affected by a change in its price; consumer surplus--the difference between the maximum price a consumer is willing to pay and the price that they actually pay; and quasi-rent--the profit made in the short-term from a product/innovation due to a reduction in supply. The book also unveils the theory of supply and demand, emphasizing that the price and output of goods are determined by the intersection of supply and demand curves which act like scissor blades, and not by the theory of value. In this classic work, Marshall builds on the works of other great thinkers in the Classical School such as Adam Smith, David Ricardo, Thomas Robert Malthus, and John Stuart Mill, but shifts the emphasis, for the first time, away from the market to the individual and the study of human behavior. This re-issued classic contains a new introduction by Professor Peter Groenewegen who explores the profound impact that this critical work has had on economic and business thinking.

  • The Early Byzantine Historians

    The Early Byzantine Historians is the first analytic study of every significant Byzantine historian from Eusebius of Caesarea (c.255-339) to Theophylact Simocatta (c.585-after 641?). Written for general readers as well as professional scholars, and filled with new interpretations and discoveries, the book presents a remarkable portrait gallery of forty historians who were gifted writers, incisive thinkers, engaging personalities, or all three at once. They include often neglected key figures like Eunapius of Sardis, Priscus of Panium, Philostorgius, and Hesychius of Miletus; Eustathius of Epiphania, whose universal history largely survives in plagiarizations by John Malalas and John of Antioch and preserves previously overlooked parts of earlier lost histories; and Procopius of Caesarea and Ammianus Marcellinus, two of the greatest historians of all time. Individually and as a group, these historians provide many insights into early Byzantine society and intellectual life and had a decisive influence on Byzantine culture and modern perceptions of Byzantine history.

  • Keynes's General Theory, the Rate of Interest and Keynesian' Economics

    <BR>Geoff Tily argues that Keynes was primarily concerned with monetary policy, not fiscal policy. Viewed as a coherent whole, Keynes's work was concerned with the appropriate technique and infrastructure for the management of money at low rates of interest. More specifically, his rejection of the gold standard led ultimately to his proposal for an international clearing union to support domestic debt-management and monetary policies aimed at cheap money. His ideas became reality. With the start of the Great Depression, governments across the world began a (short-lived) era of the deliberate management of money.<BR>While many others have argued that 'Keynesian' economics is a misrepresentation of Keynes's theory, Tily argues that 'Keynesian' economics also permitted a gross misrepresentation of his economic policies. 'Keynesian' economics was a different theory opposed, and indeed rival, to Keynes's work. With the policy perspective restored, an alternative presentation of Keynes's economics, based on post-Keynesian economics, is permitted. <BR>  <BR>In this book first published in January 2007, Geoff Tily argues that the economics profession has distorted and betrayed Keynes's legacy. In virtually all interpretations especially that taught to students Keynes is portrayed as concerned only with government expenditure as a means to cure economic crisis. Yet Keynes's central aim was the prevention of economic crisis. His prescription to do so concerned monetary not fiscal policy. <BR><BR>From the moment the great depression began, Keynes began to influence greatly the monetary policy of the world. Countries, led by the UK and US, put in place capital controls and mechanisms to manage exchange rates, and changes to debt management and credit policies that permitted the orderly management of money at low long-term and short-term interest rates on what should have been a permanent basis. The Bretton Woods negotiations went some way to re-enforce and formalise these policies, but did not go far enough. <BR><BR>The current crisis is rooted in the dismantling of the remnants of the Bretton Woods architecture and the liberalisation of finance that began even before 1970. Tily argues that we should not be surprised that the neglect of Keynes's policies is leading to a crisis of similar magnitude to the depression that motivated the development and implementation of those policies in the first place. It is to the same policies that we must turn, as the crisis becomes a reality. <BR><BR>Geoff Tily has been a member of the Government Statistical Service since 1989 and the Government Economics Service since 2006. He did his MSc in economics at University College London and a PhD under the supervision of Victoria Chick.<BR>

  • The Himmler Brothers: A German Family History

    Once upon a time the Himmlers were just a normal German family, middle-class, hard-working, well-educated. There were three brothers, Gebhart, Heinrich and Ernst. Heinrich grew up to become the head of Hitler's SS, mastermind of the concentration camp system and chief perpetrator of the Holocaust. When Katrin Himmler, Heinrich's great-niece, was fifteen, one of her school mates asked during a history lesson if she was related to the Himmler. `Yes', she stammered, at which there was a deathly hush in the classroom and the teacher, embarrassed and unsure, quickly moved the lesson on. As she grew older, Katrin gave her family history a wide berth, but married to an Israeli whose family was confined to the Warsaw Ghetto and with a young, half-Jewish son, she realizes that she cannot evade the past so easily. Katrin Himmler's cool but meticulous examination of the Himmler story reveals - in all its dark complexity - the gulf between the `normality' of bourgeois family life and the horrors perpetrated by one member and a more nuanced portrait of Heinrich himself emerges - not a lone evil executioner, but a middle-class family man, loved and fully supported by his respectable German family.

  • The European Consumer Citizen in Law and Policy

    This book provides a detailed analysis, within an EU setting, of what we may mean by the phrase 'consumer citizen'. It examines the characterizations of the consumer in EU law and policy and argues the case for a limited conflation of the hitherto distinct concepts of the consumer and the citizen. As a basis for the model of consumer citizenship practice introduced in this book, ideas of the politicized consumer are discussed in parallel with legal and theoretical concepts of citizenship. The author's discussion then moves on to examine ideas of territorial and membership dimensions of European consumer citizenship and the policy initiatives that help define and encourage the consumer citizenship role. As the detail becomes clear a set of four related and interdependent normative influences on consumer citizenship practice are set into a framework that will provide a functional reference tool for policy makers and academic researchers.

  • The Leadership Illusion: The Importance of Context and Connections

    This book is about what we have called the "leadership illusion"; the hardwired habit of writers, researchers and leaders themselves, when examining success or failure, to focus on predominantly the individual and often the context, but very rarely both. The Leadership Illusion asserts that to make sense of leadership, we have to understand at the same time the context in which leaders operate because both are inextricably interlinked. To try to understand a leader without the context is only half the tale. This book is an attempt to tell the whole story.

    More specifically, the book explores the relevance of the informal social networks that shape the leadership context and their role in the delivery of personal and organisational goals. It highlights that to achieve leadership aspirations and succeed in these challenging times, how we connect with the people we know and those we have yet to meet may be more important than we may imagine.

  • Northeast Asia's Difficult Past: Essays in Collective Memory

    Asia's 'Memory Problem' is unique. Chinese, Japanese and Koreans assign great significance to their national pasts; disagreements about one another's history and commemorative practices are heated and affect diplomatic and economic relationships. Honour and shame societies teach their members to think about the past differently than do societies of dignity and guilt. In Northeast Asia, the events judged most negative reveal weakness or incompetence, and they induce shame. For this reason, the Western 'politics of regret', which include practices based on violations of dignity and a sense of collective guilt, cannot be directly generalized to Northeast Asian cultures. These cultures are, thus, privileged sites for the study of memory. In no other regional setting is the interdependence of history, commemoration and belief so significant and problematic. In no other setting is the Memory Problem so acute.

  • Treasure Islands: Uncovering the Damage of Offshore Banking and Tax Havens

    A thrilling ride inside the world of tax havens and corporate masterminds

    While the United States experiences recession and economic stagnation and European countries face bankruptcy, experts struggle to make sense of the crisis. Nicholas Shaxson, a former correspondent for the Financial Times and The Economist, argues that tax havens are a central cause of all these disasters.

    In this hard hitting investigation he uncovers how offshore tax evasion, which has cost the U.S. 100 billion dollars in lost revenue each year, is just one item on a long rap sheet outlining the damage that offshoring wreaks on our societies. In a riveting journey from Moscow to London to Switzerland to Delaware, Shaxson dives deep into a vast and secret playground where bankers and multinational corporations operate side by side with nefarious tax evaders, organized criminals and the world's wealthiest citizens. Tax havens are where all these players get to maximize their own rewards and leave the middle class to pick up the bill.

    With eye opening revelations, Treasure Islands exposes the culprits and its victims, and shows how:

    *Over half of world trade is routed through tax havens

    *The rampant practices that precipitated the latest financial crisis can be traced back to Wall Street's offshoring practices
    *For every dollar of aid we send to developing countries, ten dollars leave again by the backdoor
    The offshore system sits much closer to home than the pristine tropical islands of the popular imagination. In fact, it all starts on a tiny island called Manhattan. In this fast paced narrative, Treasure Islands at last explains how the system works and how it's contributing to our ever deepening economic divide.

  • Banking in Latin America: After the Great Financial Crisis

    Despite recently achieving high levels of economic growth, Latin America continues to be characterized by a weak and inefficient banking sector. Foreign banks have a significant presence, dollarization is high, and the region is characterized by peculiar boom and bust cycles in lending. In the first study of the banking sector in Latin America for thirty years, Gianfranco A. Vento investigates this paradox. Case studies of banking in the main Latin American countries discuss issues such as monetary policy, regulation, and capital markets. They are placed in the wider economic context of Latin America, and of the region's place in the global economy. Finally, Vento focuses on the banking sector in the wake of the global economic crisis, identifying the emergent trends for the future. This book will be essential reading for anyone interested in the economics of one of the world's most economically unstable regions.

    It's a story everyone thinks they know ... about the young boy from the back streets of Belfast who grew up to be the most famous footballer in the world, a legend who was the first superstar of the sport but whose troubled personal life, as much as his sporting genius, came to dominate the headlines. But Barbara and Carol, George's sisters, and Dickie, his father, know more. Our George reveals for the first time the real story of George Best - as told by those who knew him best and loved him most. It's the inside story of the ordinary Belfast family whose love for, and contact with, their famous son and brother never wavered through the years. It's the story of a family desperately helping him as he battled the illness that also claimed the life of their beloved wife and mother. Our George is a searingly honest book about the influences that moulded the legend - and the demons that haunted his life. Speaking for the first time, the intensely private Best family reveals how George really felt about the people and the events that shaped his life. Barbara Best is frank in confronting George's own failings and those of some of the people who were close to him, as well as offering a unique perspective on the many pressures to which he was subject. Our George is illustrated with a wealth of previously unseen family photographs, documents and correspondence (much of it deeply poignant) between George and his family.

  • China's Emerging Outsourcing Capabilities: The Services Challenge

    While China is known for its immense manufacturing base, in recent years the Chinese government has assigned a high priority to science and technology services as its future growth sectors. The Chinese government is supporting this vision with the establishment of research and technology parks, favorable tax incentives, policy reform, grants to help Chinese firms achieve certifications, investments in infrastructure, and promotion of IT outsourcing (ITO) and business process outsourcing (BPO) services. Beyond the aspirations of its leaders, is China ready to compete in the global ITO and BPO markets? How can Western managers successfully engage Chinese ITO/BPO suppliers?

    In this book, top scholars and practitioners doing leading research on China's ITO and BPO sector help answer these questions. All told, this book reports on findings from 519 interviews, 305 surveys, 11 detailed case studies, and 34 formal presentations. Authors analyze the strengths and weaknesses of China's ITO and BPO markets, categorize and analyze Chinese suppliers, project future trends in China's ITO and BPO capabilities, and prescribe lessons for Western managers seeking to engage Chinese suppliers. Several chapters contain studies of Chinese suppliers and clients engaged in particular ITO or BPO services, including, procurement, media relations, logistics, and research and development. Overall, the Chinese ITO and BPO markets are changing rapidly as they both respond to and help form the global outsourcing landscape. This book provides an in-depth, contemporary view on where China is heading, how it is going to get there, and how companies and countries can engage with China's emerging outsourcing capabilities.

  • Bonds of Blood: Gender, Lifecycle, and Sacrifice in Aztec Culture

    The history of the Aztecs has been haunted by the spectre of human sacrifice. As bloody priests and brutal warriors, the Aztecs have peopled the pages of history, myth and fiction, their spectacular violence dominating perceptions of their culture and casting a veil over their unique way of life. Reinvesting the Aztecs with a humanity frequently denied to them, and exploring their religious violence as a comprehensible element of life and existence, Caroline Dodds Pennock integrates a fresh interpretation of gender with an innovative study of the everyday life of the Aztecs. This was a culture of contradictions and complications, but in amongst the grand ritual we can find the personal and private, the minutiae of life which make the world of these extraordinary people instantly familiar. Despite their violent bloodshed, the Aztecs were a compassionate and expressive people who lived and worked in cooperative gendered partnership.

  • Economics of Institutional Change: Central and Eastern Europe Revisited

    Twenty years ago, about thirty nations in Europe and Central Asia embarked on their economic transition path. For some, the outcome was a considerable success. However, several others are still struggling to shed the inheritance of their past and to correct more recent policy mistakes. Some are likely to bounce back from the 2008-2009 recession with energy, whilst others seem to be sliding back again into a period of poor performance and fiscal disarray.

    Why is performance so different? Was democracy a factor that facilitated reforms or, rather, slowed them down? Which reforms matter, and why are some so difficult to implement? Tomasz Mickiewicz discusses these questions maintaining a broad, comparative perspective.

  • Communist Czechoslovakia, 1945-89: A Political and Social History

    Few Europeans in the twentieth century have been subject to the repeated buffetings by foreign powers, ideologically driven transformations and internal upheaval of the Czechs and the Slovaks. The period of Communist rule was complex, and those who gleefully overthrew the regime in 1989 were the very grandchildren of those who had voted for Communism with hope in the free elections of 1946.
    This concise account includes both political and social history, analysing half a century of Communism from at all strata of society. Kevin McDermott is equally intrigued by those in power and ordinary citizens, asking what motivates a young Czech worker-believer to join the Communist Party in the early 1950s, enrol in the People's Militia and remain in the party during the dark years of 'normalisation', yet end up welcoming the tearing down of the Berlin Wall in 1989.
    Using Czech and Slovak archival sources and the most recent historiography, McDermott challenges the still dominant 'totalitarian' paradigm and argues that the forty year communist experience in Czechoslovakia cannot simply be dismissed as a Soviet-imposed aberration.

Written by a leading expert in the field, this book explores the development of public service broadcasting, outlining the key debates and issues, while situating them within wider cultural contexts. Hendy uses media history to consider the outlook for broadcasters such as the BBC, and other networks and stations around the world. He analyzes how these institutions shape society, culture, and politics, focusing on how key ethical and cultural values - such as enlightenment, impartiality, service, choice, and trust - have been constantly reinvented to ensure that broadcasting can carry on being a public 'good' as well as a commercial product. Clear, concise, and contemporary, Public Service Broadcasting is invaluable reading for all students of media and broadcasting, and for anyone interested in a strand of media that has had - and continues to have - an enormous social and cultural impact, not only in Britain, but across the globe. DAVID HENDY is Professor of Media and Communications at the University of Sussex. He is the author of Radio in the Global Age (2000), Life on Air: a History of Radio Four (2007), which won the Longmans-History Today Book of the Year, and Noise: a Human History of Sound and Listening (2013). He also broadcasts regularly, and has presented series about media and cultural history on both BBC Radio 3 and BBC Radio 4. "--

  • Prize Fight: The Race and the Rivalry to be the First in Science

    We often think of scientists as dispassionate and detached, nobly laboring without any expectation of reward. But scientific research is much more complicated and messy than this ideal, and scientists can be torn by jealousy, impelled by a need for recognition, and subject to human vulnerability and fallibility. In Prize Fight , Emeritus Chair at SUNY School of Medicine Morton Meyers pulls back the curtain to reveal the dark side of scientific discovery. From allegations of stolen authorship to fabricated results and elaborate hoaxes, he shows us how too often brilliant minds are reduced to petty jealousies and promising careers cut short by disputes over authorship or fudged data.

    Prize Fight is a dramatic look at some of the most notable discoveries in science in recent years, from the discovery of insulin, which led to decades of infighting and even violence, to why the 2003 Nobel Prize in Medicine exposed how often scientific objectivity is imperiled.

  • Stealing Rembrandts: The Untold Stories of Notorious Art Heists

    A spellbinding journey into the high-stakes world of art theft

    Today, art theft is one of the most profitable criminal enterprises in the world, exceeding $6 billion in losses to galleries and art collectors annually. And the masterpieces of Rembrandt van Rijn are some of the most frequently targeted.
    In Stealing Rembrandts, art security expert Anthony M. Amore and award-winning investigative reporter Tom Mashberg reveal the actors behind the major Rembrandt heists in the last century. Through thefts around the world - from Stockholm to Boston, Worcester to Ohio - the authors track daring entries and escapes from the world's most renowned museums. There are robbers who coolly walk off with multimillion dollar paintings; self-styled art experts who fall in love with the Dutch master and desire to own his art at all costs; and international criminal masterminds who don't hesitate to resort to violence. They also show how museums are thwarted in their ability to pursue the thieves - even going so far as to conduct investigations on their own, far away from the maddening crowd of police intervention, sparing no expense to save the priceless masterpieces.
    Stealing Rembrandts is an exhilarating, one-of-a-kind look at the black market of art theft, and how it compromises some of the greatest treasures the world has ever known.

  • Borderless Economics

    A century ago, migrants often crossed an ocean and never saw their homelands again. Today, they call--or Skype--home the moment their flight has landed, and that's just the beginning. Thanks to cheap travel and easy communication, immigrants everywhere stay in intimate contact with their native countries, creating powerful cross-border networks. In Borderless Economics, Robert Guest, The Economist's global business editor, travels through dozens of countries and 44 American states, observing how these networks create wealth, spread ideas, and foster innovation. Covering phenomena such as how young Chinese studying in the West are infecting China with democratic ideals, to why the so-called "brain drain"--the flow of educated migrants from poor countries to rich ones--actually reduces global poverty, this is a fascinating look at how migration makes the world wealthier and happier.

  • The Third Rome, 1922-1943: The Making of the Fascist Capital

    Rome underwent a spectacular transformation under Fascist rule; a transformation that was visual and topographical but also deeply symbolic. The 'third Rome' that Mussolini envisioned and sought to realise in the 1920s and 1930s was partly a new city, expanding in all directions from the historic centre, and partly a new vision for an ideal city that emerged from within a cityscape forged across millennia of history. This Rome was intended to be both the capital of a regenerated Italy and the sanctuary of a new international fascist political religion. Aristotle Kallis traces the plethora of visions and projects that sought to reimagine, reinvent and reshape the city as a 'fascist capital' over the course of twenty short years. Extensive demolitions, reconfigurations of sites and monuments, as well as ambitious new constructions designed by an array of architects in wildly different styles, chronicle a fascinating story of conquering drive, ruthless appropriation, and interrupted ambition.
