What is the value of the arts and humanities today? This
question points to a long and extensively discussed
dilemma. Eleonora Belfiore and Anna Upchurch have
compiled a collection of original essays that offer a
novel approach to tackling this difficult question. These
contributions offer examples that show that, rather than
relying on the narrowly utilitarian notion of -research
impact- that has developed within current educational
policies and debates, it may be more appropriate to look
at the ways in which arts and humanities research is
already engaged in collaborative endeavours, both within
academia and beyond, in order to address the big ethical,
political, technological and environmental challenges of

By defining the attributes of authentic stewardship, this
book presents a path forward by analyzing the success of
Canadian banks in weathering the financial crisis,
evaluates the effectiveness of global financial reform
efforts in making the financial system safer, sounder,
and more secure, offers wealth management prescriptions
for individual investors, evaluates the potential of ESG
(environmental, social, and governance) investment
processes as a way to instill stewardship behaviors among
corporate CEOs (particularly at financial services firms)
and, ultimately, calls for a return to stewardship-s
core principles as the key to not only minimizing the
scope and consequences of future failures, but also to
addressing other societal challenges.

Jim Wallis, well-known justice advocate and author, has
stated that the two great hungers in the world today are
for spirituality and social justice. The contributions in
this edited collection highlight current developments in
this area, including emerging conceptual frameworks,
practice applications and research findings. Theoretical
approaches to understanding the link between spirituality
and justice are explored in analyses of alternative
models of social justice and justice orientations of
major faith traditions. The critical role of spirituality
in larger system change is illustrated through exemplars
of research on vulnerable populations, community
practice, legislative advocacy, development of social
movements, and ecological social work.

This book explores the relationship between space, law
and gendered subjectivity through a close look at an
-illegal- squatter settlement in Delhi. Since 2000, a
series of judicial rulings in India have criminalised
squatters as -illegal- citizens, -encroachers- and
-pickpockets- of urban land, and have led to a spate of
slum demolitions across the country. This book argues
that in this context, it has become vital to distinguish
between illegality and informality since it is those
-illegal- slums which are at the receiving end of a
-force of law-, where law is violently encountered wit.

This book provides a contextual study of the development
of Alfred Marshall’s thinking during the early years of
his apprenticeship in the Cambridge moral sciences.
Marshall’s thought is situated in a crisis of academic
liberal thinking that occurred in the late 1860s. His
crisis of faith is shown to have formed part of his wider
philosophical development, which saw him supplementing
Anglican thought and mechanistic psychology with Hegel’s
Philosophy of History. This philosophical background
informed Marshall’s early reformulation of value theory
and his subsequent wide-ranging reinterpretation of
political economy as a whole. The book concludes with the
suggestion that Marshall’s mature economic science was
conceived by him as but one part of a wider, neo-
Hegelian, social philosophy.

the functioning of securities exchanges and other trading
platforms as firms, assuming an industrial organization
perspective and focusing on the competitive behaviour of
exchanges, regulation and governance arrangements and
their impact on the structure of the industry.

This book provides a comprehensive treatment of

vulnerability to poverty. It provides new approaches to
the conceptualization and measurement of vulnerability to
poverty based on custom-made panel data for Thailand and
Vietnam and analyses in detail how risks and shocks
affect the vulnerability of households in these two
economies. In addition, it analyses the determinants of
vulnerability and household coping strategies to deal
with shocks and to reduce future risks. It also derives
policy implications to reduce vulnerability to poverty
and examines the impact of policies.

and identity in the contemporary context of globalisation

diaspora - a perfect route to a deeper understanding of
contemporary socio-cultural transformations and the way
in which information and communication technology
functions as both a catalyst and indicator of such
transformations. The book will be of interest to scholars
of diaspora studies, cultural studies, international

In this book, Harry Kelsey uncovers Philip-s life - from
his childhood and education in Spain, to his marriage to
Mary and the political maneuverings involved in the
marriage contract, to the tumultuous aftermath of Mary-s
death, which ultimately led to hostile relations between
Queen Elizabeth and Philip, culminating in the Armada.
Focusing especially on the period of Philip-s marriage to
Mary, Kelsey shows that Philip was, in fact, an active
King of England who took a keen interest in the rule of
his wife-s kingdom. Casting fresh light on both Mary and
Philip, as well as European history more generally, this
book will be essential reading for anyone interested in
the Tudor era.
