Market Basket Analysis (MBA) provides the ability to
continually monitor the affinities of a business and can
help an organization achieve a key competitive advantage.
Time Variant data enables data warehouses to directly
associate events in the past with the participants in
each individual event. In the past however, the use of
these powerful tools in tandem led to performance
degradation and resulted in unactionable and even
damaging information. Data Warehouse Designs: Achieving
ROI with Market Basket Analysis and Time Variance
presents an innovative, soup-to-nuts approach that

On Humanism is a timely and powerfully argued
philosophical defence of humanism. It is also an
impassioned plea that we turn to ourselves, not religion,
if we want to answer Socratest age-old question: what is
the best kind of life to lead? Although humanism has much
in common with science, Richard Norman shows that it is
far from a denial of the more mysterious, fragile side of
being human. He deals with big questions such as
Darwinism and tcreation sciencet, matter and
consciousness, euthanasia and abortion, and then argues
that it is ultimately through the human capacity for art,
literature and the imagination that humanism is a
powerful alternative to religious belief.

ISBN : 9780415588546.
330.122 COL 137158
This book offers the reader a new perspective on free-
market economics, one in which the defense of markets is
no longer based upon the utilitarian claim that free
markets are more efficient, rather, the defense of
markets rests upon the moral argument that top-down
coercive policy-making is necessarily in tension with the
rights-based notion of justice typical of the Western
tradition. The strongest and most consistent case for
free market economics, therefore, rests on moral
philosophy, not on some version of static-efficiency
theorizing. This book should be of interest to students
and researchers focusing on economic theory, political
economics and the philosophy of economic thought, but is
also written in a non-technical style making it
accessible to an audience of non-economists.

China is now the world-s second largest economy and may

Despite its adoption of some free-market principles,
China considers itself a "socialist-market economy,"
suggesting that the government still plays a major role
in the country-s economic development. This book offers a
systematic analysis of four factors in China-s rapid
economic growth: exchange rate policy, savings and

A critical look at the way that business leadership has
gone so badly wrong. Modern business is obsessed with
leaders. We talk about leadership all the time, but its
real meaning is becoming more and more obscure. Recent
corporate crises have shown that all too often, our
leaders are missing in action when we need them most.

"Almost 80% of Americans believe that we are suffering
from a crisis of leadership, but rather than asking, why
are leaders failing, we need to ask, "Why aren-t we
choosing better leaders?" Ever wonder what goes on behind
closed board room doors when organizations pick their top
leaders? It can be a contentious, secretive, even brutal
process. Most of our leaders look good on paper--they
have charisma, credentials, and confidence--yet they lack
the real qualities that are necessary to succeed.

The importance and impact of logistics as a function
which is critical to the success of companies, of entire
industries, and even of nations competing in the global
economy, is no longer questioned today. Logistics, within
a few decades, has established itself firmly as a
profession, an important field of sophisticated
managerial practices, and as a large, powerful industry.
But in the academic world the question of its status and
identity as a science is still being debated. This book
aims to contribute to this debate in two ways: It offers
a selection of tclassicalt, in some cases hard to access
original international contributions to the evolution of
the field in one convenient volume of readings. As such,
it should be useful to students of the field, to
researchers, and to practitioners who are interested in
tracing the logistical ideas and instruments they are
using down to their conceptual trootst.

This book provides knowledge and skill-building training
exercises in managing marketing decisions in business-to-

deep. The intent is for the book to help answer four
questions: (1) what questions should executives ask when
crafting and implementing effective strategies in B2B
contexts, (2) what tentative answers may be useful for
executives to consider to these questions, (3) what
skills in crafting strategies and decisions are necessary
for executives to excel in for achieving effective
outcomes consistently, and how should the B2B go about
acquiring these skills?

Fictionalizing Myth and History offers refreshingly new
perspectives on four postcolonial novels by writers
hailing from different countries. It reveals how the
boundaries of fiction, myth and history get blurred when
forces of imperialism and resistance play out their power
struggles in different countries. Political and culture
myths are being constantly reshaped in a dynamic
historical process, underlying which is the truth that
political myths that shape history are crafted by the
word of command. The book closes with an appendix that
summaries how the myth of the Aryan invasion of India has
shaped the teaching and writing of history in India.

This book is the translation of Niharranjan Ray s highly

a seminal work on the history of the Bengalis from the
earliest times to the beginning of the Muslim rule in
India. This volume is as much a work of literature as it
is of history. It is not a story of kings and the
extension of their power but of the life of ordinary
people. Thus, through detailed, methodical discussions
on origins of the various peoples, their language and
literature, science, trade and commerce, religious
practices and rituals, the author draws a vivid picture
of society and its development through the passage of

Founded in 1411 by Sultan Ahmed Shah on the banks of the
river Sabarmati, Ahmedabad is today India s seventh
largest city. With the setting up of Sabarmati Ashram,
the great manufacturing centre also became a centre for
new awakening. It became the political hub of India,
radiating the message of freedom struggle based on truth
and non-violence. After Independence, it emerged as one
of the fastest-growing cities of India and in the 1960s
Ahmadabad’s pioneered institutions of higher education
and research in new fields such as space sciences,
management, design and architecture. Coinciding with the
600th anniversary of the founding of Ahmedabad, this

that emphasize Indo-Islamic and Indo-European synthesis
and continuity, bringing the focus back to the
pluralistic heritage of this medieval city.
