collection has a pluralist character, including topics
such as efficiency and prices as well as feminism and
realism, and ranging from Adam Smith to Karl Marx, while

corporate social responsibility. The pluralist character
of the book implies that it goes beyond the conventional
positive/normative dichotomy in economics, showing the
wide variety in which economic method, data analysis,
theory, argumentation, and presentation are imbued both
with facts and with values.

This book provides a new, innovative perspective on the
organizational challenges now facing companies in complex
and dynamic business situations. The authors assert that
management and organization theory is increasingly
turning its attention to the perpetual practice of
organizing and strategizing rather than just focusing on
formal structures and strategies. This new paradigm is
thoroughly analyzed, and the consequent management
implications discussed. The book deals with the
theoretical framework to further expand upon emerging
perspective. The -activity-community- model is built
around fundamental principles, and numerous case studies
are used to illustrate and support this unique
theoretical framework. The book offers an up-to-date
overview of the latest developments within organization
theory, and posing a number of important questions on
this changing realm.

The most remarkable phenomenon in Asia in the 21st
century is arguably the economic rise of China and India.
Amazingly, the two most populous countries in the world
are uplifting millions of their citizens annually from
poverty through rapid economic growth. What is the impact
on the region, given the ascendance of China and India?
There are at least two possible outcomes: the rise of the
two great Asian powers may challenge the US and instill
fear among the smaller countries in Asia, or, China and
India will act as new economic dynamos that will benefit
the region even if US economic presence in the region is
to decline in the future. This book explores the
opportunities and obstacles to a "harmonious" region
underpinned by the rise of China and India.

by governments, financial intermediaries, and financial

creation and growth have followed. When they failed,
growth slowed and sometimes economic decline has

This book looks at the World Bank as an organization -
whether it is set up to do the job it is supposed to do
and, if not, what should be done about it. This book is
about the problems of organization and reorganization as
much as it is about the problems of assisting third-world
development, and it is a case study in flawed
organizational reform as much as a critique of the way
development assistance is managed. It covers the period
that starts at the time of the first major
reorganization, in 1987 under President Barber Conable,
and ends at the time of the resignation of Paul
Wolfowitz, in 2007, but it focuses especially on what
happened during the tenure of James Wolfensohn.

This book proposes new methods to value equity and model
the Markowitz efficient frontier using Markov switching
models. In particular, the book proposes that there are
substantial differences between -bull- and -bear- market
efficient portfolios that need to be taken into account
when building diversified portfolios. Also, the book
proposes a new concept of persistence that may be used to
define and better understand the concept of nonlinear co
integration. In addition, the book reviews the recent
developments of using fractional integrated models to
model stock market volatility and suggests a new
explanation for the persistence observed in share prices
and their associated returns.

The book gives investors a comprehensive toolkit for

investments. This book challenges investors to broaden
their minds from a too narrow asset class perspective and
excessive focus on historical performance. Coverage
includes major asset classes (stocks, bonds, and
alternatives), investment strategies (value, carry,
momentum, volatility) and the effects of underlying risk
factors (growth, inflation, illiquidity, tail risks).
Judging expected returns requires balancing historical
returns with both theoretical considerations and current
market conditions. This book summarizes the state of
knowledge on all of these topics, providing extensive
empirical evidence, surveys of risk based and behavioral
theories, and practical insights.

This book challenges the commonplace notion that the
amount of power which mankind can potentially harness
from renewable resources is more than large enough to
assuage future demand levels. By examining the renewable
issue from an electrical engineering perspective, and
exercising due regard for the limited capability of
current and future electrical generation and transmission
systems, this book attempts to provide more realistic
statistics for the levels of power which could be
extracted from sustainable resources in the critical time
frame of 30 to 40 years. The engineering logic leads
inexorably to the importance of taking a global outlook
on the switch to renewable power supply and transmission.
This book provides a new perspective on renewable
resources for academics and researchers in environmental
or electrical power engineering, as well as to students
in related areas.

This book analyses the network memberships that emerge
from the natural settings of our everyday lives, and the
pervasive effects that these can have on our preferences
and behavior as consumers. Effects of network memberships
are nowhere more evident than in our interactions as
consumers. Interaction models in consumption that are in
pair wise contacts do not represent the complex
interactions in networks and effects that are emergent
from these interactions. In the proposed model, feedback
from consumer activities to preferences is shown to have
properties that increase their openness of effects of
environments. These dynamics are shown to imply that
there is more randomness than popularly recognized in
both the daily lives of consumers and the generation of
institutions that emerge from these interactions.

This book offers multiple conceptualizations of
development outcomes of inclusion of small producers,
firms and workers in value chains. Processes of inclusion
at different scales are unpacked in order to identify the
terms of participation of small producers, firms and
workers. As value chains are embedded, the book further
argues that inclusion can be conceptualized as the degree
of alignment between value chain logics and the
institutions and capacities in the local business system.
The combination of inclusive governance and endogenous
development informs a grounded debate on roles of
development-oriented partnerships. Chapters in this
volume draw on multiple strands of economics, sociology,
political science, geography and management studies, and
for empirical grounding engage in comparative analysis of
cases from Latin America, SubSaharan Africa and East and
South East Asia.

in innovations. Early inventions/innovations that began
in Asia (i.e., compass, paper, gunpowder and printing)
spread to the Atlantic (Europe and USA) by land and sea
routes. However, with population growth, economic
expansion, availability of skilled researchers and lower
cost of research in Asia Pacific, there has been a shift
in innovation activities in this region. There has been a
discernable trend of innovation (RandD) in countries like
Japan, Korea, China, India and Singapore. This book
attempts to create awareness of this trend and hopes to
motivate business leaders and policy makers to take
advantage of this shifting trend, as well as to encourage
more global collaboration in innovations to face societal
challenges in the 21st century.

In this book, the author argues that the success of the
architectural profession in post-war Britain is directly
related to its stewardship of the intellectual property
that he calls "architectural knowledge." The backdrop to
this debate is the author-s term of presidency of the
RIBA between 1993 and 1995. During this period the
architectural profession faced major challenges and
threats. The book looks at the relationship between the
architectural profession and the built environment in the
context of the great political and social cycles in the
British post-war period. Francis Duffy-s writings provide
additional insights and viewpoints to the subject.
