Collaboration within digital humanities is both a
pertinent and a pressing topic as the traditional mode of
the humanist, working alone in his or her study, is
supplemented by explicitly co-operative, interdependent
and collaborative research. This is particularly true
where computational methods are employed in large-scale
digital humanities projects. This book, which celebrates
the contributions of Harold Short to this field, presents
thirteen essays by seventeen leading authors in the
digital humanities. It addresses several issues of
collaboration, from the multiple perspectives of
institutions, projects and individual researchers.

Following the approach of R. M. Hartwell, the influential
historian of the British Industrial Revolution, these
essays explore the cultural contexts and institutional
constraints that have shaped growth and development over
the past two centuries. Capitalism in Context offers new
perspectives on why economic development took place where
and when it did. Thirteen chapters cover: social progress
during economic development, the influence of cultural
values on social and economic change, economic
foundations of development--labor, capital, and
technology and organizational arrangements--property
rights, government, and markets. These studies will
appeal to economists, historians, and social scientists
alike for their wide-ranging treatments of economic
development and cultural change. The contributors are N.

This book provides a thorough examination of public and

period between 2001 and the full onset of the global
financial crisis in 2008. In Japan this shareholder-
centric conception of the company espoused by activist
hedge funds clashed with the alternative Japanese
conception of the company as an enduring organisation or
a -community-. By analysing this clash, the book derives
a fresh view of the practices underpinning corporate
governance in Japan and offers suggestions regarding the
validity of the shareholder primacy ideas currently at

examples. The case studies are designed to stimulate the
analytical reasoning required to employ environmental

of the challenges facing people struggling to reduce

is an irreverent but rigorous reference guide to low-

Readers are taken through the choices of three real
people who are trying to decarbonizes on a budget: a
twenty-something starting out in work, a father with two
school children holding down a hectic job and a pensioner
on a fixed income Ultimately the goal is to help all of
us, regardless of means or background, maintain our
environmental commitment and lower our carbon footprints
while saving money in the face of hard economic times.

Word order is one of the major properties on which
languages are compared and its study is fundamental to
linguistics. This comprehensive survey provides an up-to-
date, critical overview of this widely debated topic,
exploring and evaluating word order research carried out
in four major theoretical frameworks è linguistic
typology, generative grammar, optimality theory and
processing-based theories. It is the first book to bring
these theoretical approaches together in one place and is
therefore a one-stop resource covering the current
developments in word order research. It explains word
order patterns in different languages and at different
structural levels and critically evaluates (and where
possible, compares) the theoretical assumptions and word
order principles used in the different approaches.

Downsizing is one of the most frequently used business
strategies for reducing costs, returning firms to profit
or for restructuring businesses following takeovers,
mergers and acquisitions. Downsizing measures are also
set to become much more prevalent in the public sector as
governments seek to restrict levels of public spending.
This book is one of the first to provide a thorough study
of downsizing from a global perspective. It examines the
phenomenon in its entirety, exploring how it is initiated
and what the process of downsizing looks like. It also
looks at the effects of downsizing at a number of
different levels, from the individual (e.g., motivational
effects, effects on health and stress levels) to the
organizational (e.g., financial outcomes, reputational
and productivity outcomes).

In the eighteenth century, the novel became established
as a popular literary form all over Europe. Britain
proved an especially fertile ground, with Defoe,
Fielding, Richardson and Burney as early exponents of the
novel form. The Cambridge Introduction to the Eighteenth-
Century Novel considers the development of the genre in
its formative period in Britain. Rather than present its
history as a linear progression, April London gives an
original new structure to the field, organizing it
through three broad thematic clusters - identity,
community and history. Within each of these themes, she
explores the central tensions of eighteenth-century
fiction: between secrecy and communicativeness,
independence and compliance, solitude and family,
cosmopolitanism and nation-building. .

century, One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the

journalist, Garcèa Mèrquez has one of literature-s most
instantly recognizable styles and since the beginning of
his career has explored a consistent set of themes,
revolving around the relationship between power and love.
His novels exemplify the transition between modernist and
post-modernist fiction and have made magical realism one
of the most significant and influential phenomena in
contemporary writing. Aimed at students of Latin American
and comparative literature, this book provides essential

Another Reason is a bold and innovative study of the

the modern nation. Gyan Prakash, one of the most
influential historians of India writing today, explores
in fresh and unexpected ways the complexities,
contradictions, and profound importance of this
relationship in the history of the subcontinent. He
reveals how science served simultaneously as an
instrument of empire and as a symbol of liberty,
progress, and universal reason - and how, in playing
these dramatically different roles, it was crucial to the
emergence of the modern nation.
