New World New Body Language is the mantra for this
edition of Body Language. Soft skill is the most sought
after word today in the field of management. The
nurturing of soft skills and the furthering of
individual growth come under one such modern-day demands.
Ever since the last edition of this book in 1998, there
have been dramatic societal changes, owing to the
increased use of the Internet. This edition factors in
these changes. With illustrations depicting body
positions, Hedwig Lewis aims at a systematic, in-depth
and comprehensive approach to non-verbal communication in
general and body language in particular.

Authenticity as an ethical ideal / Somogy Varga.-- New
York: Routledge, 2011.
ISBN : 9780415895330.
170 VAR 136225
Authenticity has become a widespread ethical ideal that
represents a way of dealing with normative gaps in
contemporary life. This ideal suggests that one should be
true to oneself and lead a life expressive of what one
takes oneself to be. However, many contemporary thinkers
have pointed out that the ideal of authenticity has
increasingly turned into a kind of aestheticism and
egoistic self-indulgence. In his book, Varga
systematically constructs a critical concept of
authenticity that takes into account the reciprocal
shaping of capitalism and the ideal of authenticity.
Drawing on different traditions in critical social
theory, moral philosophy and phenomenology, Varga builds
a concept of authenticity that can make intelligible
various problematic and potentially exhausting practices
of the self.

In this book, the author attempts to answer the moral
questions raised by five important and widely contested
racial practices: slave reparations, affirmative action,
hate speech restrictions, hate crime laws, and racial
profiling. Arguing from premises that virtually everyone
on both sides of the debates over these issues already
accepts, author arrives at an unusual and unorthodox set
of conclusions, one that is neither liberal nor
conservative, color conscious nor color blind.

This book presents the idea that a new way of thinking
about the economy may be productive, particularly one
that does not rely on an unregulated market to secure
economic order. In this context, the notion of a "post-

orientation. The general theme is that markets are
imperfect, despite what their advocates declare.

To lift and keep millions out of poverty requires that
smallholder agriculture be productive and profitable in
the developing world. Do we know how to make this happen?
Researchers and practitioners still debate how best to do
so. The prevailing methodology, which claims causality
from measures of statistical significance, is inductive
and yields contradictory results. In this book, instead
of correlations, Isabelle Tsakok looks for patterns
common to cases of successful agricultural transformation
and then tests them against other cases. The single most
important threat to such government commitment is
subservience to the rich and powerful minority.

V.1- Illustrations and Philosophical Preliminaries.
ISBN : 9780415688796.
338.475 TYF 136280
This book argues that the fundamental underlying problem
in all cases is the ontological shallowness of these
theories, which can only be remedied by attention to
ontological presuppositions. Accordingly, the book sets
out an introduction to the existing literature on the
economics of science together with novel discussion of
the field from a critical realist perspective. In arguing
thus across levels of abstraction, however, the book also
explores how concerted engagement with substantive social
enquiry and theoretical debate develops and strengthens
critical realism as a philosophical project, rather than
simply -applying- it.

The financial crisis of 2008 laid bare the hidden network
of relationships in corporate governance: who owes what
to whom, who will stand by whom in times of crisis, what
governs the provision of credit when no one seems to have
credit. This book maps the influence of these types of
economic and social networks--communities of agents
(people or firms) and the ties among them--on corporate
behavior and governance. The empirically rich studies in
the book are largely concerned with mechanisms for the
emergence of governance networks rather than with what
determines the best outcomes.

In recent years, analysts have pointed to rising
inequality in the U.S. as an underlying factor in both
our social fragmentation and economic underperformance.
This book argues for the possibility of "just growth" --
a framework in which the imperatives of equity have been
coupled with strategies to shore up the economy -- and
suggests that much can be learned from efforts to couple
prosperity and inclusion at a metropolitan or regional
level in the United States.

Poverty alleviation and socio-economic equality have
largely remained the prime focus of India-s rapid growth-
driven economic processes. This short introduction brings
together systematic academic research on an area of
extensive debate and divergence-the identification and
specification of the poverty line. Through comparative
theoretical approach and econometric analyses, it
critically reviews and interprets the Indian experience
of poverty estimation over the last fifty years,
identifies the challenges, and suggests suitable policy
interventions towards a more comprehensive approach.

Why do some marriages grow stronger in the face of
conflict or stress while others dissolve? In this book,
two pioneering researchers present a groundbreaking
theory of how mutually responsive behaviors emerge or
fail to emerge in relationships. Illustrating their
findings through the vivid stories of four diverse
couples, the authors explore how conscious considerations
interact with unconscious impulses to foster trust and
commitment. Compelling topics include why marriages have
such different personalities and what makes partners
truly compatible. Also discussed are implications of the
model for helping couples sustain satisfying
relationships and improve troubled ones.

The choice of financial performance measures is one of
the most critical challenges facing organizations. The
accounting-based measures of financial performance have
been viewed as inadequate, as firms began focusing on
shareholder value as the primary long-term objective of
the organization. Hence, value-based metrics were devised
that explicitly incorporate the cost of capital into
performance calculations. In this scenario, the
objective of this book is contributing to the ongoing
dialogue on the appropriateness of different financial
performance measures, by providing a systematic and
updated review of the major value-based measures, by
highlighting their respective strengths and weaknesses
and by comparing the main international empirical
evidence on their effectiveness.

Designed specifically for students taking their first
introductory module in human resource management, this
textbook combines the academic and practitioner
perspectives to produce a balanced introduction to the
subject. This approach explores how HR is actually
practiced and experienced in the workplace, which
overcomes the idealistic and partial insights of many
textbooks. By taking a truly holistic approach to the
subject, this text avoids the presentation of HRM as a
separate management function, and instead presents HR
processes and challenges as an integral part of any
business. Plenty of real life examples and case studies
are included throughout, presenting the reader with
opportunities to understand the theory in practice, and
bringing the topics to life.
