Behavioral decision research offers a distinctive
approach to understanding and improving decision making.
It combines theory and method from multiple disciples
(psychology, economics, statistics, decision theory,
management science). It employs both empirical methods,
to study how decisions are actually made, and analytical
ones, to study how decisions should be made and how
consequential imperfections are. It shows the common
elements in a research program that represents the scope
of the field, while offering depth in each.

The Oxford Handbook of Religion and Violence surveys
intersections between religion and violence throughout
history and around the world. The forty original essays in
this volume include overviews of major religious
traditions, showing how violence is justified within the
literary and theological foundations of the tradition,
how it is used symbolically and in ritual practice, and
how social acts of violence and warfare have been
justified by religious ideas. The essays also examine
patterns and themes relating to religious violence, such
as sacrifice and martyrdom, which are explored in cross-
disciplinary or regional analyses, and offer major
analytic approaches, from literary to social scientific

In Bodies That Matter, the author argues that theories of
gender need to return to the most material dimension of
sex and sexuality: the body. The author offers a
brilliant reworking of the body, examining how the power
of heterosexual hegemony forms the "matter" of bodies,
sex, and gender. It argues that power operates to
constrain sex from the start, delimiting what counts as a
viable sex. It also clarifies the notion of
"performativity" introduced in gender trouble and via
bold readings of Plato, Irigaray, Lacan, and Freud
explores the meaning of a citational politics.

This book presents the most comprehensive analysis of the

been identified as one worth emulating because it is seen
to have taken the state to the zenith of human
development and democratic governance. Using an
interdisciplinary approach, the book sheds new light on
the paradoxes of the Indian state and its model of
economic development. The book provides a consolidated
exploration and critique of the Kerala model, which
usually has been portrayed as linear with the grand
narrative of progress, development and democracy.

Can practices of local level democracy in France and
India as fostered by their local governments be compared?
If contextualised in terms of their respective
geographical expanse intertwined with their political
history, levels of economic development, demographic
attributes and cultural moorings, comparison would, at
best be shallow. But juxtapose them in the context of
their contemporary political developments and a viable
common ground would appear, rendering their seemingly
divergent features irrelevant.

explores the reasons for the survival of some communist

of collapse differed among communist-led regimes in
Europe, Africa, and Latin America. Based on the analysis
of the different processes of collapse that has already
taken place, and taking into account the special
characteristics of the remaining communist regimes,
Transitions and Non-Transitions from Communism discusses
the future prospects for the survival of the regimes in
China, Cuba, North Korea, and Vietnam.

This book argues that analysing India-s foreign and

produce India-s identity as a postcolonial nation-state
helps to illuminate the conditions of possibility in
which foreign policy is made. The book focuses on key
moments of crisis, such as the India-China war in 1962
and the nuclear tests of 1972 and 1998, and the approach
to international affairs of significant leaders like
Jawaharlal Nehru. The analysis sheds new light on these
key events and figures and develops a strong analytical
narrative around India-s foreign policy behaviour, based
on an understanding of its postcolonial identity.

This book explores the connections between the
environmental crisis and the psychological, social,
cultural, political and economic emergencies affecting
modern societies. It identifies the root cause of all
these symptoms of societal breakdown: neoliberalism,
defined as market greed. The author argues that in recent
decades, modern societies have been dominated by a
suicidal economic doctrine based on two articles of
faith: the greed creed and the market God. The greed
creed states that people are nothing but selfish
profiteers in a perpetual search for status and
wealth. The market God is the belief that all societal and
human affairs are best regulated as market exchanges.

The hypothesis of the volume is that the smaller
reduction in poverty has been the result of slower
transformation of the economy from a primarily agrarian
to a modern, industrial one. Even as the GDP share of
agriculture has seen rapid decline, its employment share
has declined very gradually. Against this background, the
nine essays pursue three broad themes using firm level
data in both industry and services. The papers in part I
ask why the transformation in India has been slow in
terms of the movement of workers out of agriculture, into
industry and services, and from informal to formal
employment. Part II analyzes the transformation that
reforms have brought about within and across
enterprises. Part III addresses the manner in which the
reforms have helped promote social transformation.

Explaining the links among development, global

values and patterns on a world level over the last half

prevailing knowledge about global order is implicated in
its deep tensions: chiefly, the impetus for development
and global governance embodies aspirations for attaining
wellbeing and upholding human dignity, yet market- and
state-driven globalization embraces basic ideas inscribed
in power, thus increasing vulnerability and making the
world more insecure. It projects scenarios for future
global order and how to make it work for the have-nots.
