This book is a comprehensive account of Panchayati Raj
institutions in India since the 73rd Constitutional
Amendment mandated them in the year 1993. While local
governance is not new to India, the present system of
Panchaya’s was created and developed in the midst of the
post-1991 reforms and -liberalization- of the state-
centric political economy. Civil society and market were
to acquire greater roles in the delivery of public
services at the local level, and decentralization of
governance institutions was initiated. This Short
Introduction presents a balanced and complete picture of
the philosophy, objectives, evolution, successes, and
failures of these institutions in the last two decades.

This book brings together the collected essays of Kenneth

thinkers of international relations in the second half of
the twentieth century. His books Man, the State and War
and Theory of International Politics are classics of
international relations theory and gave birth to the
school of thought known as neo-realism or structural
realism, out of which many of the current crop of realist
scholars and thinkers has emerged. Waltz frames these
seminal pieces in his theoretical development by
explaining the context in which they were written and,
building on the broader aims of these theories, explains

the development process within the country in the age of

unorthodox approach in Economics and as such is a
critique of the mainstream neoclassical position on

financial markets and institutions, (3) international
investing, (4) international financial management, and
(5) special topics. The chapters cover market
integration, financial crisis, and the links between
financial markets and development in some detail as they
relate to these areas. In each instance, the contributors
to this book discuss developments in the field to date
and explain the importance of each area to finance as a

This book opens new ground in the study of financial
crises. It treats the financial system as a complex
adaptive system and shows how lessons from network
disciplines - such as ecology, epidemiology, and
statistical mechanics - shed light on our understanding
of financial stability. Using tools from network theory
and economics, it suggests that financial systems are
robust-yet-fragile, with knife-edge properties that are
greatly exacerbated by the hoarding of funds and the fire
sale of assets by banks.

This book explores the relationship between home,
household headship and enterprise in Victorian London. It
examines the notions of duty, honor and suitability in
how women-s ventures are represented by themselves and
others and engages in a comparison of the interpretation
of historical female entrepreneurship by contemporaries
and historians in the UK, Europe and America. It argues
that just as women in business have often been hidden by
men, they have often also been hidden by the -home- and
the conceptualization of separate spheres of public and
private agency and of -the- entrepreneur.

expertise, entrepreneurship and community. It also traces
the various discourses and counter-discourses around an
Indian way of working and illustrates how differences in

activities involved in the process of mass digitization
identifying impediments to the increasing number of such
projects such as the inapplicability of copyright
exceptions, difficulties in rights clearance, and the
issue of -orphan- and out-of-print works. It goes on to
examine the concept of -use- of works in light of mass
digital technologies and how it impinges on copyright law
and principles, for example considering whether scanning
and using optical character recognition in mass digital
projects qualify as transformative use, or whether text

Though Britain and France have faced a similar threat
from Islamist terrorism in the years following September
11 2001, they have often responded in different ways to
the challenges it posed. This groundbreaking work offers
an in-depth comparative analysis of counterterrorist
policies and operations in these two leading liberal
democracies. Challenging the widely held view that the
nature of a state-s counterterrorist policies depends on
the threat it is facing, Foley suggests that such an
argument fails to explain why France has mounted more
invasive police and intelligence operations against
Islamist terrorism than Britain and created a more
draconian anti-terrorist legal regime.

This book introduces theories, concepts and skills
required to promote an event successfully. To promote an
event effectively it is essential to understand
marketing, but it is also important to recognise that it
is not just consumers who are the audience: other publics
who may not necessarily attend can have a fundamental
effect on the success of an event as well. Uniquely
therefore, this book covers two related themes: marketing
and public relations in an events context. The book
focuses on core marketing and PR current theory
specifically relevant to the events industry and
introduces topics such as marketing strategy, the
consumer, marketing PR and how to use the internet to
promote events. It integrates a range of international
case studies from small-scale events to mega-events to
help show how theory can be applied in practice.

This book summarizes the research in the past 10 years on
how different governance environments at the national
level affect business operations and management. Its
primary audience includes executives who manage business
across borders. Readers interested in international
political economy and comparative culture may also find
it intriguing. This book distinguishes and examines the
two major governance environments in the world, the rule-
based system (conventionally called the "Western way")
and the relation-based system (the "Asian way"), and
demonstrates that the Asian way does not come from
cultural heritage, but rather it is a result of the
particular stage of political and economic development in
which public rules are not fair and effective.

meeting of old and new global challenges. As the world of

of the global economy, including the unprecedented
severity of the economic crisis, caused primarily by the
U.S. subprime mortgage loan crisis since late 2008. Next,
the authors tackle the explosive growth of information
technology tools, including the Internet and electronic

effect on the way we do business internationally
