149.2 BHA 133977
The author presents his new philosophy of meta-reality as
a radical extension, systematic development and proleptic
completion of critical realism. This study contains
seminal and far-reaching discussions of critical realism
and the nature of being, an incisive and limpid account
of modernity, modernism and post-modernism, a sublime
discourse on the nature of the self and compelling
considerations on the relationship between social science
and self-realization. It demonstrates the ubiquity of
transcendental phenomena in everyday life and the
orientation of enlightenment towards collective human
emancipation and universal self-realization.

This book brings together two histories, of the Encounter
between Europe and the western hemisphere that began in

sixteenth century, to recast the story of the
Reformation. It restores to the polemics - -idolatry-,
-true Christian-, -barbarian- - their deeply divisive
force, even as it helps us to see past those polemics to
divergent understandings of divinity, matter, and human
nature. Every aspect of human life, from marriage and
family through politics to conceptualizations of space
and time was called into question. Debates on human
nature and conversion forged new understandings of
religious identity. Divergent understandings of human
nature and its relationship to the material world divided

As the twentieth century drew to a close the sociology of
class came under sustained attack. Within this assault,
one strand of thought has stood out as particularly bold,
wide-ranging and influential: that of putting
reflexivity, whether attached to theorizations of
individualization or late modernity, at the core of the
current social order. This book seeks to put this
audacious perspective to the test. Going far beyond the
responses so far elicited from researchers of class, the
author deploys conceptual precision and original
qualitative research to fully assess the fate of class in
contemporary society. Author reveals reflexivity to be
absent or, at best, a superficial interpretation of
classed social processes. Ultimately, though a new social
climate leads them to produce novel outcomes, class
differences and inequalities persist as stubbornly as

This book looks at Indian middle-class lifestyles through
a number of case studies, ranging from a historical
account detailing the making of a savvy middle-class
consumer in the late colonial period, to saving clubs
among women in Delhi-s upmarket colonies and the dilemmas
of entrepreneurial families in Tamil Nadu-s industrial
towns. The book pays tribute to the diversity of
regional, caste, rural and urban origins that shape
middle class lifestyles in contemporary India and
highlights common themes, such as the quest for upward
mobility, common consumption practices, the importance of
family values, gender relations and educational
trajectories. It unpacks the notion that the Indian
middle class can be understood in terms of public
performances, surveys and economic markers, and
emphasises how the study of middle-class culture needs to
be based on detailed studies.

productive links between theory and method are celebrated
in this text. Theoretical concepts range from queer
theory, feminist theory, and critical race theory to
Marxism and phenomenology. The methodological techniques
range from designing and asking in-depth interview
questions and developing rapport to coding and
interpreting data. The various theories and methods
culminate in three fictional ethnographic case studies
that -enact- the interdependence between theories and
emphasize method and the significance of social theory,

Asian American movement is one of the least-known social
movements of the 1960s and 1970s, it drew upon some of
the most powerful currents of the era, and had a wide-
ranging impact on the political landscape of Asian
America, and more generally, the United States. Using the
racial discourse of the black power and other movements,
as well as antiwar activist and the global decolonization
movements, the Asian American movement succeeded in
creating a multi-ethnic alliance of Asians in the United
States and gave them a voice in their own destinies. This
book provides a short, accessible overview of this
important social and political movement, highlighting key
events and key figures, the movement-s strengths and
weaknesses, how it intersected with other social and
political movements of the time, and its lasting effect
on the country.

This book presents comparative country case studies on

religion calls into question the relevance of modernist
notions of secularism and democracy, with the emphasis
instead on going back to indigenous roots in search of
authentic ideologies and models of state and nation
building. Within the context of the individual countries,
chapters focus on the consequences that politics of
religion has on inclusive nation-building, democracy and
the rights of individuals, minorities and women.

This book covers and discusses human rights from a

human rights with both global and local economic-
political realities, this book entails a full shake-up of
the UN led mission for human rights and the national
strategies linked to it. It approaches human rights as
not just legal resources but political tools as well,
aimed at not only protection of existing freedoms and
entitlements but also transformation of "disabling"
environments. This implies a shift in the allocation of
human and financial resources from the quasi-legal
international level to the national and local
environments in which these rights have to be realised.
In a "human dignity triangle" the author connects human
rights to human development and human security.

This book examines what has and has not changed, and
provides evidence that an understanding of the values,
norms and cultural issues bearing on the progress or
otherwise of women in organizations is becoming ever more
necessary. There is a looming crisis in organizational
leadership, with demographic factors and globalization
leading to an international talent war. Against that
background, continuing bias against women seeking
leadership responsibilities means organizations are
failing to develop available talent, and when
corporations experience economic difficulties the
consequences bear disproportionately on women managers.

Despite considerable progress on political and economic
convergence over the last decade, the financial
structures of the individual EU member states remain
diverse. On the one hand, there was the introduction of
the euro and on the other hand, an unprecedented
enlargement from fifteen to twenty-seven countries. On
top of this, Europe was hit hard by the recent global
financial crisis. The author looks at the impact of this
crisis on the process of European financial integration
and concludes that it has not been homogenous. She
demonstrates that the segments with the highest degree of
integration were affected most by the crisis. The author
also highlights that there may be different indicators
and causes of financial crises including political and
institutional nature as well as bank specific factors

The main focus of the book is to indicate how South Asia
can take advantage of the rapid changes taking place in
the structure of the global economy. It argues that the
developing global economy will be much more complex than
implied by what may be called the G2 model: that from a
unipolar world the world is moving towards a bilpolar
configuration with two countries all the US and China all
at the center. According to the author-s view, however,
the world will be multipolar with these eight centers of
economic activity, Brazil, China, the European Union,
India, Japan, Russia, South Africa and the United
States. Suggesting that in the context of such a world,
there should be regional cooperation between India and
its immediate neighboring countries for South Asia to
advance as an economic region.

to systemic crises? What is the optimal role of the state
in dealing with crises? How should asset bubbles be
addressed in the future? Do we need a major overhaul of

The theme of this book is "Recovering from Financial

insight into the recent surge in going-private
transactions and the corresponding reduction of Initial
Public Offerings. The author develops evidence that going
private transactions tend to be inversely related with
the return on diversified equity portfolios, suggesting
that the recent upswing in going-private transactions in
the United States is not simply the result of the
Sarbanes -Oxley Act of 2002.

several streams of the literature and assembles evidence
of the influence of corruption on two important variables
in human welfare: income and environmental policies. The
material evinces the detrimental effect that corruption
has on economic growth and on the stringency of
environmental policies. It also shows that standard
techniques for fighting corruption are often based either
on simplistic definitions or on strong assumptions that
do not apply in many countries blighted by corruption.

questions. The book considers several factors hindering
the first-best optimal outcome and highlights two crucial
ones. It elaborates further with models and the solutions
on how to overcome these obstacles.

This report is written from the perspective of those who
despite yearning for good quality education find
themselves excluded from learning and acquiring decent
education. The data is based on the findings of a survey
conducted in 2006, along the lines of an earlier survey
conducted by PROBE in 1996 - it -revisited- the same
sample villages covering schools and households, with
some modifications. Apart from basic and primary
education, this report looks at upper-primary schooling
in Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, and Rajasthan,
and in Himachal Pradesh. It highlights major progress in
areas such as schooling facilities and enrolment rates.
At the same time, it finds that fundamental problems
remain, such as low classroom activity, poor quality of
education, and discrimination due to social disparities
in schooling opportunities.

College cost per student has been on the rise at a pace
that matches - or exceeds - healthcare costs. Unlike
healthcare, though, teaching quality has declined, and
rapidly rising costs and declining quality are not trends
easily forgiven by society. This book addresses these
problems, providing a behavioral framework for the
chronic cost/quality consequences with which higher
education is fraught. Providing many compelling insights
into the issues plaguing higher education, author
expounds upon H.R. Bowen-s revenue theory of cost by
detailing experience good theory, the principal/agent
problem, and non-profit status. Reputation competition
dominates higher education.

reduction and recycling at the centre of many government

While there has been a considerable literature addressing
consumption and waste reduction from different
disciplinary perspectives, the complex nature of the
problem requires an increasing degree of
interdisciplinary. Resource recovery and the optimization
of material flow can only be achieved alongside and

This book is devoted solely to perishable inventory
systems. The book-s ten chapters first cover the
preliminaries of periodic review versus continuous review
and look at a one-period newsvendor perishable inventory
model. The author moves to the basic multiperiod dynamic
model, and then considers the extensions of random
lifetime, inclusion of a set-up cost, and multiproduct
models of perishables. A chapter on continuous review
models looks at one-for-one policies, models with zero
lead time, optimal policies with positive lead time, and
an alternative approach. Additional chapters present
material on approximate order policies, inventory
depletion management, and deterministic models, including
the basic EOQ model with perishability and the dynamic
deterministic model with perishability.
