In this book, author takes us through the minefield of
business and ethics looking at the ways in which ethics
enters work and the choices available to companies and to
individuals. He argues that being ethical is not a simple
question of doing the right thing vs the wrong thing, it
is to find a balance between multiple right or wrong
choices, arriving at not a solution but a compromise.

The book shows a fresh perspective on the translated
Bible as a cultural object. It focuses on conflicts in
three key areas of translation--locating a sacred
lexicon, the politics of "standard versions" and
categorizing genres--as discursive sites within which
Protestant identities have been articulated by Tamils. By
widening the cultural and historical framework of the
Tamil Bible, this book is the first to analyze links
between language use, translation practices and caste
affiliations in the articulation of Protestant identities

In this book the author draws upon his long years of

thirds of negotiation practice is learnable." "Without
sacrificing scientific accuracy, author offers a highly
readable and fascinating guide to the subject. In so
doing, he does not limit himself to the over-simplified
tips generally put out on successful bargaining in every
imaginable situation. Rather, he treats the different
aspects of negotiation practice in a way that is useful
to both academics and practitioners, such that the
general laws and principles gradually become evident as

This book is about capital and about the economic system
that bears its name. In this humanist look at capitalism,
Levine explores the meaning of capital as a social
reality connected to fundamental human aspirations. The
link between capital and the pursuit of a hoped-for state
is especially important in light of the stubborn
insistence on the part of its critics that capitalism
exists to serve the material interests of those whose
vocation is to own capital. This misunderstanding ignores
what is essential about capital, which is its link not to
interests but to hope, especially the hope that by
accumulating capital the individual can achieve an
attachment to the good.

The book provides a rigorous introduction to corporate
finance and the valuation of equity. The first half of
the book covers much of the received theory in these
areas such as the relationship between the risk of an
equity security and the return one can expect from it,
the effects of leverage (that is, the borrowing policies
of the firm) on the return one can expect from the firm-s
shares and the role that dividends, operating cash flows
and accounting earnings play in the valuation of equity.
The second half of the book is more advanced and deals
with the important role that "real options" (that is, as
yet unexploited investment opportunities) play in the
valuation of equity.

338.6420951 KED 138508
This book summarizes the experience of specialized
markets in a systematic manner. Specialized markets are a
unique product of China-s economic transition. They are
marketplaces located in industrial clusters, specializing
in the wholesale of local commodities and related goods.
The author reveals that despite their seemingly primitive
form, specialized markets appeared in many of the modern
industrial sectors and were paradoxically upgraded and
expanded as these clusters developed. He argues that
specialized markets have also formed solid linkages with
marketplaces in various cities in China and in other
developing economies. Based on thorough fieldwork
covering ten years, and using the novel theory of the
platform, this book clarifies the unique development
logic of specialized markets.

Contemporary approaches to aviation safety show a dynamic
endeavour to identify a variety of inputs, operational
interventions that manage and improve activities and
performance, as well as proactive initiatives that
minimize the emergence of adverse situations. In this
process, aviation psychologists study personnel selection
and training activities, they evaluate the management of
a flight operation, and ultimately analyse the things
that went wrong. There has always been a strong
interrelation between these components and it allows us
to talk about a chain of safety. This volume presents the
most recent efforts in this chain of safety streaming
from both the industry and academia, as well as the
future challenges for operational settings.
