(Success in research).
ISBN : 9788132110231.
001.4 DEN 136467
This book is essential reading for those writing research
proposals for a PhD application as well as those writing
proposals to funding bodies. It is intended for those who
are writing proposals for the first time but also for
those who may have written proposals before, but never
succeeded in getting funding. It is simple, but not
simplistic. It offers practical advice, but also
interrogates your thinking about the actual research
design. This book is an excellent addition to any newer
researcher-s bookshelf as well as for administrative
staff and those in research offices who support academics
writing proposals. You get a sense that the authors are
true experts and genuinely want to support new and early
academics in what is an increasingly competitive part of
modern day academia.

xv, 150p, 25cm
ISBN : 9780415780995.
001.42 JAC 136554
This book shows how to use various philosophical concepts
in practices of inquiry, effectively opening up the
process of data analysis in qualitative research. It uses
a common data set and utilizes various theoretical
perspectives through which to view the data. It
challenges qualitative researchers to use theory to
accomplish a rigorous, analytic reading of qualitative
data. "Plugging in" the theory and the data produces a
variety of readings applying various theorists and their
concepts. It pushes against traditional qualitative data
analysis such as mechanistic coding, reducing data to
themes, and writing up transparent narratives. These do
little to critique the complexities of social life, such
simplistic approaches preclude dense and multi-layered
treatment of data. It shows that "thinking with theory"
pushes research and data and theory to its exhaustion in
order to produce knowledge differently.

This thought-provoking history of corporate
responsibility in the USA is a landmark publication
documenting the story of corporate power and business
behavior from the mid-eighteenth century to the modern
day. It shows how the idea of corporate responsibility
has evolved over time, with the roles, responsibilities
and performance of corporations coming increasingly under
the spotlight as new norms of transparency and
accountability emerge. Today, it is expected that a
corporation will be transparent in its operations, that
it will reflect ethical values that are broadly shared by
others in society, and that companies will enable society
to achieve environmental sustainability as well as a high
standard of living.

Perhaps the defining feature of humanity is the social
condition -- how we think about others, identify
ourselves with others, and interact with groups of
others. The advances of evolutionary theory, social
cognition, social identity, and intergroup relations,
respectively, as major fields of inquiry have been among
the crowning theoretical developments in social
psychology over the past three decades. Marilynn Brewer
has been a leading intellectual figure in the advancement
of each of them. Her theory and research have had
international impact on the way we think about the self
and its relation to others. This festschrift celebrates
Marilynn’s numerous contributions to social psychology,
and includes original contributions from both leading and
rising social psychologists from around the world.

Digital technologies have prompted the emergence of new
modes of regulation and governance, since they allow for
more decentralized processes of elaboration and
implementation of norms. Moreover, the Internet has been
raising a wide set of governance issues since it affects
many domains, such as individual rights, public
liberties, property rights, economic competition, market
regulation, conflict management, security and the
sovereignty of states. There is therefore a need to
understand how technical, political, economic and social
norms are articulated, as well as to understand who the
main actors of this process of transformation are, how
they interact and how these changes may influence
international rulings. This book brings together an
international team of scholars to explain and analyze how
collective regulations evolve in the broader context of
the development of post-modern societies,
globalization, the reshaping of international relations
and the profound transformations of nation-states.

The author offers a perspective permeated by a sense of
history, beginning with the invention of writing and the
development of the skill of reading. Together with
technological developments, these provide a unique view
of the trajectory of modernity into late-modernity, and
illustrate how the arc of progress has transformed. New
modes of time, technology, and reading and writing are
helping create a faster world where we know less about
more-and forget what we know evermore quickly. These
interacting processes have now been transformed at their
core and are building a different world, one where
certainties of the previous era are disappearing and
being displaced by what the author sees as a chronic and
pervasive mode of cognitive distraction.

321.8 COP 136492
Democratization and Research Methods is a coherent survey
and critique of both democratization research and the
methodology of comparative politics. The two themes
enhance each other: the democratization literature
illustrates the advantages and disadvantages of various
methodological approaches, and the critique of methods
makes sense of the vast and bewildering democratization
field. Michael Coppedge argues that each of the three
main approaches in comparative politics - case studies
and comparative histories, formal modeling and large-
sample statistical analysis - accomplishes one
fundamental research goal relatively well: tthicknesst,
integration and generalization, respectively. Throughout
the book, comprehensive surveys of democratization
research demonstrate that each approach accomplishes one
of these goals well but the other two poorly.

Venture capital (VC) refers to investments provided to
early-stage, innovative, and high growth start-up
companies. A common characteristic of all venture capital
investments is that investee companies do not have cash
flows to pay interest on debt or dividends on equity.
Rather, investments are made with a view towards capital
gain on exit. The most sought after exit routes are an
initial public offering (IPO), where a company lists on a
stock exchange for the first time, and an acquisition
exit (trade sale), where the company is sold in entirety
to another company. However, VCs often exit their
investments by secondary sales, wherein the entrepreneur
retains his or her share but the VC sells to another
company or investor buybacks, where the entrepreneur
repurchases the VC`s interest and write-offs

The author seeks to demonstrate the neglected role of
currency undervaluation in economic growth and to
consider its implications for global economics. He
explains the mechanisms by which currency valuation
effects growth, offers evidence in defense of the
hypothesis that policies promoting cheap currency lead to
higher growth, as well as the stronger hypothesis that a
large proportion of growth accelerations and
decelerations can be explained in terms of currency
valuation, the pitfalls of widespread reliance on
currency devaluation, arguing that such practice
eventually can be understood as mercantilism if
widespread and long-term and will inevitably lead to
financial and/or currency crisis, thus necessitating more
collaborative currency arrangements in the pursuit of a
more stable globalized future.

Energy has always been and important ingredient for the
economic and social progress of human society, although
the form in which energy is used has undergone a
phenomenal change. Energy security relates to economic
security in the context of energy decision making. In
modern society, energy has become more global in nature.
The ever-increasing integration of energy markets across
the globe spreads the security concern from one sector
and country to another. It deals with leading policy
issues in the energy sector including energy security,
energy pricing, efficiency and conservation,
environmental aspects of power infrastructure
development, and rural electrification.

International legal scholarship is concerned with the
fragmentation of international law into specialized legal
systems such as trade, environment and human rights.
Fragmentation raises questions about the inter-systemic
interaction between the various specialized systems of
international law. This study conceptually focuses on
this book. It introduces a legal theory of WTO law,
constrained openness, as a way to understand that
interaction. The idea is that WTO law, from its own
internal point of view, constructs its own law. The
effect is that external international law is not
incorporated into WTO law wholesale, but is
(re)constructed as WTO law. It follows that legal systems
do not directly communicate with each other.

This book shows that the Western treatment of World War
II, the Second Sino-Japanese War, and the Chinese Civil
War as separate events misrepresents their overlapping
connections and causes. The long Chinese Civil War
precipitated a long regional war between China and Japan
that went global in 1941 when the Chinese found them
selves fighting a civil war within a regional war within
an overarching global war. The global war that consumed
Western attentions resulted from Japants peripheral
strategy to cut foreign aid to China by attacking Pearl
Harbor and Western interests throughout the Pacific on
December 7-8, 1941. S. C. M. Paine emphasizes the fears
and ambitions of Japan, China, and Russia, and the
pivotal decisions that set them on a collision course in
the 1920s and 1930s.

International trade and the rapidly proliferating network
of trade agreements have been hotly debated for decades.
While some blame trade agreements for exporting jobs,
sowing poverty, furthering illegal migration, and robbing
national sovereignty, others praise them as lynchpins of
growth, pillars of peace, guarantors of security, and
engines of globalization. Still others view them as
useful instruments for fostering global trade and
investment. This book examines whether trade agreements
merit the blame leveled against them or the hopes pinned
on them by employing a new, extensive historical data set
on trade agreements to examine the features of ongoing
trade agreements and to analyze the futures implications
of these agreements.

Topology-based methods are of increasing importance in
the analysis and visualization of datasets from a wide
variety of scientific domains such as biology, physics,
engineering, and medicine. Current challenges of topology
based techniques include the management of time-dependent
data, the representation of large and complex datasets,
the characterization of noise and uncertainty, the
effective integration of numerical methods with robust
combinatorial algorithms. The editors have brought
together the most prominent and best recognized
researchers in the field of topology-based data analysis

This book provided for second- or third-year students of
computer science, presents insights, notations, and
analogies to help them describe and think about
algorithms like an expert, without grinding through lots
of formal proof. Solutions to many problems are provided
to let students check their progress, while class-tested
PowerPoint slides are on the web for anyone running the
course. By looking at both the big picture and easy step-
by-step methods for developing algorithms, the author
guides students around the common pitfalls. He stresses
paradigms such as loop invariants and recursion to unify
a huge range of algorithms into a few meta-algorithms.
The book fosters a deeper understanding of how and why
each algorithm works.

Early theorists believed that in science lay the promise
of certainty. Built on a foundation of fact and
constructed with objective and trustworthy tools, science
produced knowledge. But science has also shown us that
this knowledge will always be fundamentally incomplete
and that a true understanding of the world is ultimately
beyond our grasp. F. David Peat examines the basic
philosophic difference between the certainty that
characterized the thinking of humankind through the
nineteenth century and contrasts it with the startling
fall of certainty in the twentieth. The nineteenth
century was marked by a boundless optimism and confidence
in the power of progress and technology. Science and
philosophy were on firm ground.

This book explores the interplay of conformity and
defiance amongst the plural medical tradition in colonial
India. The contributors reveal how Indian elites,
nationalists, and the rest of the Indian population
participated in the move to revisit and frame a new
social character of Indian Medicine. Viewed in the light
of the cultural, nationalistic, social, literary and
scientific essentials, the book highlights various
indigenous interpretations and mechanisms through which
Indian sciences and medicine were projected against the
cultural background of a rich medical tradition.

Human resource management systems differ across
corporations around the world. Japan has unique
characteristics that create specific challenges for HRM
and there is currently a lack of research focusing on
Japanese HR issues available to westerners. This book
examines the major challenges and dilemmas in human
resource management as Japan-s industrial society
continues its resurgence in the global arena. The first
part of the book deals with Japanese HRM from an
international perspective, analyzing the overall
structure of Japanese HRM systems and comparing these
with current international systems. The second part of
this book looks at Japanese HRM from a domestic
perspective and as such covers the micro issues of HRM
practice in Japan.

Too many organizations try to improve innovation by
focusing on one element at a time, particularly in the
area of new products and services. They train
individuals, hire more creative people, or create
specialized innovation departments. Yet, for most
organizations, these investments yield only disappointing
results. They have not had sustainable solutions-

predictable results. Instead, they have had an endless

guidelines and a wealth of examples. Luxury is in fashion
and is now to be found in almost every retail,
manufacturing and service sector. New terms like "mass-

How was Bletchley Park made as an organization? How was
signals intelligence constructed as a field? What was
Bletchley Park’s culture and how was its work co-
ordinate? Bletchley Park was not just the home of
geniuses such as Alan Turing, it was also the workplace
of thousands of other people, mostly women, and their
organization was a key component in the cracking of
Enigma. Challenging many popular perceptions, this book
examines the hitherto unexamined complexities of how
10,000 people were brought together in complete secrecy
during World War II to work on ciphers. Unlike most
organizational studies, this book decodes, rather than
encodes the processes of organization and examines the
structures, cultures and the work itself of Bletchley
Park using archive and oral history sources.
