This book examines issues relating to ethical decision-
making in the managerial context. Managers are paid to
oversee the work of others, and in the course of their
work, they often make decisions that impact other people.
This book is intended to help managers, and students of
management, reflect on the impact of their decisions, and
to help them in making such decisions ethically.

This book provides a comparative analysis of the response
that Hegel and Sartre give to these questions and, in so
doing, offers one of the first sustained, comparative
studies of their thought available in the English
speaking world. The discussion is wide-ranging in that it
engages with each thinker-s conception of freedom,
ethics, consciousness, social relations, group
formations, and the self, before comparing the two to
show that it is Hegel who provides the more logically
consistent, subtle, and holistic analysis. But while the
argument developed maintains that Hegel-s analysis is
superior to Sartre-s, the book concludes by showing that
a number of questions remain regarding the social
formation that Hegel thinks is necessary to allow the
individual to overcome his alienation from the social

A thematic work on the factual profiles of prevalent
micro credit programs in India, this book goes far beyond
the review of literature on the concept, country models,
and history of the movement. The book contains an up-to-
date review of the regulatory measures and their nuances,
as well as a detailed review of evaluation and impact
studies. It also dwells on the limitations of the
microfinance movement to satisfy the credit needs of the
vast informal-sector enterprises and discusses the new
initiatives that the authorities have taken under the
broad theme of "financial inclusion." Keeping the broader
objective of distributional goals embedded in the
microfinance movement, this record attempts an assessment
of the wider challenges faced by the financial system by
providing suggestions for reaching out to the small and
informal sectors on a more effective scale.

perceptions ranging from social to environmental

trade-off between consumptive and on-stream benefits
remain contested, this collection of narratives calls for
a global perspective on sustainable water use with an
exclusive emphasis on better management of shared river

The book aims at providing an overview of the main
economic issues related to tourism activities. While
tourism is an important sector, contributing to more than
10% of the European Union’s GDP, research and teaching at
the university level has only recently grown to a
considerable level, and the field still lacks a firm
research methodology. This book approaches tourism
economics as an applied field of study in which tourism
markets are represented as imperfect markets, with
asymmetric and incomplete information among agents,
bounded rationality, and with a strong presence of
externalities and public goods. The economic issues
studied in the book are approached both intuitively,
largely using examples and case studies, and formally,
with mathematical formalizations in text boxes.

How should a Western company manage cross-culturally

universal or, on the contrary, are they culturally
Western specific? The author provides answers to these

that, in a large part of the world, people-s expectations

internal structure of AC ratings that assessors make on
rating dimensions after the completion of each exercise.

In this book the author seeks to develop a sophisticated
relationship between Marxism and literary criticism.
Ranging across the key works of Raymond Williams, Lenin,
Trostsky, Brecht, Adorno, Benjamin, Lukacs and Sartre, he
develops a nuanced critique of traditional literary
criticism, while producing a compelling theoretical
account of ideology. However, he distances himself from a
simplistic application of Marxist categories and shows
how ideology can play a productive and subversive role in

The Man before the Mahatma is the first biography of
Gandhi-s life in the law. It follows Gandhi on his
journey of self-discovery during his law studies in
Britain, his law practice in India and his enormous
success representing wealthy Indian merchants in South
Africa, where relentless attacks on Indian rights by the
white colonial authorities cause him to give up his
lucrative representation of private clients for public
work-the representation of the besieged Indian community
in South Africa. Using the courtrooms of South Africa as
his laboratory for resistance, Gandhi learns something
else so important that it will eventually have a lasting
and worldwide impact: a determined people can bring
repressive governments to heel by the principled use of
