This book is arranged into three sections. The first
section shows, from the specific example of international
investment law, that the past half-century has seen the
invention of two genuinely new techniques in positive
law: state contracts and transnational arbitration
without privities. This is -advancement- in international
law, not because the techniques are -good- in themselves
(one may well think them -bad-), but because they have
introduced legal possibilities into international law
that did not exist heretofore. The second section
examines the theoretical consequences of those new legal
techniques and especially the way they affect the theory
of the state. The third section widens the field of view
and asks whether European law has surpassed international
law in a move towards federalism or whether it represents
a step forward for international law.
These reflections make for a clearer theoretical
understanding of what constitutes true advancement in

Seehwa Cho begins the book with an engaging overview of
the history of critical pedagogy and a clear, concise
breakdown of key concepts and terms. Not content to hide
behind rhetoric, Cho forces herself and the reader to
question the most basic assumptions of critical pedagogy,
such as what a vision of social change really means.
After a thoughtful and pithy analysis of the politics,
possibilities and agendas of mainstream critical
pedagogy, Cho takes the provocative step of arguing that
these dominant discourses are ultimately what stifle the
possibility for true social change. Without focusing on
micro-level approaches to alternatives, Cho concludes by
laying out some basic principles and future directions
for critical pedagogy.

Special issue - toward a better understanding of the role

(Review of marketing research , 9).
ISBN : 9781780529127.

In their 2004 article -Evolving to a new dominant logic
for marketing,- Vargo and Lusch established the related
principles that value is always co-created and, thus,
firms cannot deliver value, but only develop compelling
value propositions. This perspective is now known as
-service-dominant (S-D) logic.- Subsequent S-D logic work
has suggested that value is not only always co-created,
it also requires the integration of resources from
multiple sources and thus is contextually contingent,
since each instance of value creation involves the
availability, integration, and use of a different
combination of resources. This repositioning of value,
from a static concept of something embedded in the output
of a -producer- to be -consumed,- to a dynamic concept of
a co-created outcome in ever-changing, networked systems,
can be seen throughout the manuscripts in this volume.
