Since the Enlightenment, scholars have speculated that
patterns of cooperation and conflict might be
systematically related to the manner in which power is
distributed among states. Most of what we know about this
relationship, however, is based on European experiences
between the seventeenth and twentieth centuries, when
five or more powerful states dominated international
relations, and the latter twentieth century, when two
superpowers did so. Building on a highly successful
special issue of the leading journal World Politics, this
book seeks to determine whether what we think we know
about power and patterns of state behaviour applies to
the current tunipolart setting and, if not, how core
theoretical propositions about interstate interactions
need to be revised.

Mainstream economics traditionally restricts the analysis
of the labor market to purely monetary factors, such as
earnings, leaving aside many other characteristics which
might affect the desirability of certain jobs. By
contrast, this book aims to explore the alternatives and
problems faced by researchers in quantifying and
measuring a broader notion of job quality. The main
objective is to analyze the different approaches to
measurement and to analyze both the advantages and
disadvantages of the various methods within a European
context. Specifically, the book presents a unique new
index of job quality and applies it to the EU Member
States. The index proves particularly useful to measure
the differences in job quality by country, occupation,
gender and age.

focuses on concrete, constructive and realistic solutions
to China-s unprecedented environmental pollution and
rising greenhouse gas emissions from burning fossil fuels
and energy security as a result of steeply rising oil
imports. It provides an up-to-date factual analysis of
China-s efforts and commitments to improve energy
efficiency, to cut pollutants and to increase the use of
renewable energy to create a low-carbon economy. The
author explores many of the policies and measures that
China has put in place to save energy and reduce

specifically, their influences on bilateral and

identification and explanation of the immigrant - trade
link and offers a more expansive treatment of the subject
matter, making it the most comprehensive volume of its
kind. The authors present abundant evidence that supports
the notion that immigrants exert positive influences on
trade between their home and host countries and
demonstrate that while the immigrant - trade link may not
be universal, the operability of the link depends on the
conditions with which immigrants the world over are met.

This book has been varied and extensive. The structure of
the industry has developed from the original concession
arrangements through to the establishment of the Abu
Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) in 1971 and its
subsidiaries. During this transformation of the industry
in Abu Dhabi, the legal framework governing the
development of petroleum resources in the emirate has
evolved, as has the tax system applicable to operating
companies, the means of dispute resolution, and the
overall organizational structure of the industry. The
structure of the Abu Dhabi oil industry is built around
the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), which has
rapidly assumed the role of a link between government
institutions--which establish petroleum policy--and the
operating companies that are responsible for executing

In this book, the author asks: Why did the banks stop
lending to one another, and why now? Was it merely a
matter of over-loose credit due to the relaxation of
traditional prudence, or did global finance find itself
at its limits? Have government bail-outs saved the day or
merely postponed the problem? The author offers a radical
view of the global financial crisis, spanning a wide
gamut of current thinking. He argues that we need, above
all, to overcome the left-right divide so much taken for
granted today, and promote financial literacy to young

This book shows that foreign direct investment (FDI) from
emerging markets has grown from negligible amounts in the
early 1980s to $210 billion in 2007, with the stock of
investment now being well over $1 trillion. This reflects
the rise of firms from these economies to become
important players in the world FDI market. The
contributors to this book comprehensively analyze the
rise of emerging market TNCs, the salient features of the
transnational activities of these firms, the relationship
of outward FDI and the competitiveness of the firms
involved, their impact on host and home countries and
implications for the international law and policy system.

338.9 MAC 133857
In this book, the editors isolate three attributes that
appear to be associated with long-term growth. First,
whatever the form of the decision-making authority, all
are ultimately subject to an element of political
constraint: the population at large must eventually
experience the benefits of growth if the authority is to
remain in power. Broad-based growth is therefore required
for growth to be sustained. Second, given the complexity
and dynamism of the world, and our imperfect
understanding of how it works, ideological rigidity will
inevitably prove disastrous, whereas pragmatism and
responsiveness to changing conditions and to ineffective
policy initiatives are more likely to prolong growth.
Third, unconventional substitutes can fill critical gaps
while more formal institutions are being developed, thus
hastening the growth process in the short run.

This book contributes to the growing governance
literature in three ways. First, it extends the analysis
to new areas such as power asymmetry, regulation,
transnational company strategies, and law enforcement.
Secondly, it examines the role of formal institutions
that shape and enforce the rules/norms codified in law,
but also private-ordering institutions that function
under the umbrella of the State, and private institutions
(such as market rules/norms) that provide reputational
and other information that foster compliance. Finally,
the book extends and enriches the governance debate,
addressing issues such as the determinants of
institutional quality and efficiency, and the interaction
between actor networks and institutional norms.

This book argues insightfully that underdevelopment is
the result of the political economy difficulties some
countries have in the effectiveness of public
expenditures in general and of social pro-poor
expenditures in particular. The policy implication is
that reform strategies should focus on identifying the
-wrong- political incentives in public expenditures. The
book makes an important contribution to the understanding
of development by blending together the interdependent
issues of (i) macroeconomic performance and volatility,
(ii) equity and distributive justice, (iii) fiscal
deficits and the redistributive effectiveness of social
public expenditures, and (iv) the demand for the `right-
institutions and for policy reform in Latin America.

This book surveys the contributions that economic theory
has made to the often contentious debate over the
government-s use of its power of eminent domain, as
prescribed by the Fifth Amendment. It addresses such
questions as: When should the government be allowed to
take private property without the owner-s consent? Does
it depend on how the land will be used? And what amount
of compensation is the landowner entitled to receive (if
any)? The recent case of Kelo v. New London (2005)
revitalized the debate, but it was only the latest
skirmish in the ongoing struggle between advocates of
strong governmental powers to acquire private property in
the public interest and private property rights

three areas of interaction between developed countries
and the rest of the world: trade, migration and foreign

policy and poverty in the developing world, the authors
provide the inputs necessary to make policy mutually
consistent and coherent within each developed country and
coordinated across developed countries in order to avoid
contradictions and cumulative unintended consequences.

the Olympic games, it is cities rather than states which
compete, whether as financial centers, logistical hubs or
platforms for coordinating international subcontracting.
Analysing the historical precedents of the Mediterranean
maritime republics, the Baltic Sea Hanseatic League and
the South China Sea mercantile kingdoms, the book
delineates the way stable economic and legal institutions
were developed largely beyond the purview of, and at
times in conflict with, the State.

In spite of all the talk about flatter, looser

be - inevitable in the business world. But there are ways
to make the hierarchical structure more humane for the
people who work in them. This book shows how. It argues
that every organization today - even those that
"disguise" themselves as open or flat structures - are
still hierarchies. Rather than resisting this reality,
this is book offers managers realistic ways to "tame"
hierarchies to make them more humane, egalitarian places
to work. .
