In this work, Barthes focuses on the concept of
"idiorrhythmy," a productive form of living together in
which one recognizes and respects the individual rhythms
of the other. He explores this phenomenon through five
texts that represent different living spaces and their
associated ways of life: Emile Zola-s Pot-Bouille, set in
a Parisian apartment building, Thomas Mann-s The Magic
Mountain, which takes place in a sanatorium, Andre Gide-s
La Sequestree de Poitiers, based on the true story of a
woman confined to her bedroom, Daniel Defoe-s Robinson
Crusoe, about a castaway on a remote island, and
Pallidius-s Lausiac History, detailing the ascetic lives
of the desert fathers. Like his previous lecture books,
this volume exemplifies Barthes-s singular approach to
teaching, in which he invites his audience to investigate
with him and wholly incorporates his listeners into his

In this fully updated edition of Believing in Magic,
renowned superstition expert Stuart Vyse investigates our
tendency towards these irrational beliefs. Superstitions,
he writes, are the natural result of several
psychological processes, including our human sensitivity
to coincidence, a penchant for developing rituals to fill
time (to battle nerves, impatience, or both), our efforts
to cope with uncertainty, the need for control, and more.

In this book Laszlo enhances our understanding of
narrative psychology and further elaborates his narrative
theory of history and identity. He offers a conceptual
model that draws on diverse areas of psychology - social,
political, cognitive and psychodynamics - and integrates
them into a coherent whole. In addition to this
conceptual contribution, he also provides a major
methodological innovation: a content analytic framework
and software package that can be used to analyse various
kinds of historical texts and shed new light on national
identity. In the second part of the book, the potential
of this approach is empirically illustrated, using
Hungarian national identity as the focus.

This book is an authoritative account of the economic and
political roots of the 2008 financial crisis. It examines
why it was triggered in the United States, why it morphed
into the Great Recession, and why the contagion spread
with such ferocity around the globe. It also examines how
and why economies, including the Eurozone, Russia, China,
India, East Asia, and the Middle East , have been
impacted and explores their response to the unprecedented
challenges of the crisis and the effectiveness of their
policy measures. Global Financial Contagion specifically
looks at how the Obama administration-s policy missteps
have contributed to America-s huge debt and slow
recovery, why the Eurozone-s response to its existential
crisis has become a never-ending saga, and why the G-20-s
efforts to create a new international financial
architecture may fall short.

(FDI) from the large emerging market countries, focusing
on the four BRIC states (Brazil, Russia, India, and

telecommunications, finance, and transport. It considers
the international legal framework governing FDI,
discussing the nature and extent of the bilateral and

Why have Americans severely limited the estate and gift
tax - ostensibly targeted at only the very wealthy - but
greatly expanded the subsidies to low-wage workers
through the Earned Income Tax Credit, now the single
largest poverty program in the country? Why do people
hate the property tax so much, yet seemingly revolt
against it only during periods of economic change? Why
are some groups of taxpayers more obedient to the tax
authorities than others, even when they face the same
enforcement regime? These puzzling questions all revolve
around perceptions of tax fairness.. This book
demonstrates how a serious consideration of folk
justice can deepen our understanding of how tax systems
actually function and how they can perhaps be reformed.

its discussion in the author-s extensive and rigorous
statistical analyses and detailed case studies across
five industries: consumer products, beer, telecom,

This book provides a brief overview of the recent trends
in innovations. Early inventions/innovations that began
in Asia (i.e., compass, paper, gunpowder and printing)
spread to the Atlantic (Europe and USA) by land and sea
routes. However, with population growth, economic
expansion, availability of skilled researchers and lower
cost of research in Asia Pacific, there has been a shift
in innovation activities in this region. There has been a
discernable trend of innovation (RandD) in countries like
Japan, Korea, China, India and Singapore. This book
attempts to create awareness of this trend and hopes to
motivate business leaders and policy makers to take
advantage of this shifting trend, as well as to encourage
more global collaboration in innovations to face societal
challenges in the 21st century.

Chris Reus-Smit has written a ground-breaking book. By
showing that, during the last five centuries,
revolutionary ideas on individual rights were at the
roots of the demand for sovereignty and de-legitimation
of empires, and therefore, also of the expansion of
international systems and the evolution of international
order, Reus-Smit’s theoretical and empirical tour de

reveals the social nature of international systems and

Corporate marketing and corporate communications are
topics that have grown in scholarly and practical
importance in these last decades. Fields such as
branding, marketing communications and public relations
have all contributed to this boost. Whilst there is a
large amount of literature on each of these disciplines,
there is little systematic development from the
perspective of corporate marketing and corporate
communication studies, although these two have the most
to contribute to how companies manage their brands, image
and corporate identities in the 21st Century. This book
seeks to redress this balance and provide insights, via

Social Marketing involves the application of marketing
techniques (usually associated with promoting
consumption) to social ends. Beyond this simple
definition, social marketing offers an alternative to the
standard Western economic model of consumption at all
costs.This popular introductory textbook has been updated
to provide greater depth on marketing theory, more on
branding, co-creation of value, Community Based
Prevention Marketing (CBPM) and the vital role of
critical thinking. In addition, the communications
chapter is extended and radically updated to include much
more on digital media. The rise of corporate social
responsibility is also critically analysed.

Humanistic Marketing is a response to the currently
growing mega-trend call for rethinking marketing. The
book organizes current thinking around the problems of
marketing theory and practice as well as some possible
solutions and ways forward: both for theory and practice.
This volume was initiated by The Humanistic Management
Network to contribute knowledge and understanding to the
emerging humanistic business and management movement that
does not accept perpetual economic expansion as a
sustainably viable means of meeting individual and
collective needs in society and nature, and instead seeks
balance in place of excess. Humanistic Marketing
recognises the harm that comes with the unfettered desire
for more of more.

The idea of empire was created in ancient Rome and even
today the Roman empire offers a powerful image for
thinking about imperialism. Traces of its monuments and
literature can be found across Europe, the Near East, and
North Africa - and sometimes even further a field. This is
the story of how this mammoth empire was created, how it
was sustained in crisis, and how it shaped the world of
its rulers and subjects - a story spanning a millennium
and a half.

In this book veteran journalist William Chislett provides
much-needed political and historical context for Spain-s
current economic and political predicament. Chislett
recounts the country-s fascinating and often turbulent
history, beginning with the Muslim conquest in 711 and
ending with the nation-s deep economic crisis, sparked by
the spectacular collapse of its real estate and
construction sectors in 2010. He explains the country-s
transition from dictatorship to democracy and covers such
issues as the creation of a welfare state, the influx of
immigrants, internal strife from the separatist Catalan
region, the effects of stringent austerity measures, the
strengths and weaknesses of the economy, and how the
country can create a more sustainable economic model for
