This book explores the far-reaching consequences of
Gadamer-s hermeneutical critique of aesthetics. Hans-
Georg Gadamer-s poetics completely overturns the European
aesthetic tradition. By concentrating on how we
experience the meaning of artworks, Gadamer-s poetics has
deep implications for how we can understand the meaning
of poetry, art, literature, history and theology. This
emphasis on participation promises an approach that will
revolutionise how we appreciate and understand art, and
gives us new ways to think about the value and
productivity of the humanities.

in search of hiccups, coughs, yawns, sneezes, and other

these instinctive acts bear the imprint of our
evolutionary origins and can be uniquely valuable tools
for understanding how the human brain works and what

The study of mass communication is often associated with
the practical applications of journalism,television and
radio broadcasting,film,public relations,or
advertising. Mass communication differs from the studies
of other forms of communication, such as interpersonal
communication or organizational communication, in that it
focuses on a single source transmitting information to a
large group of receivers. The study of mass communication
is chiefly concerned with how the content of mass
communication persuades or otherwise affects the
behavior, attitude, opinion, or emotion of the person or
people receiving the information.

Frank Furedi explores how authority was contested in
ancient Greece and given a powerful meaning in Imperial
Rome.This historical sociology of authority seeks to
explain how the contemporary problems of mistrust and the
loss of legitimacy of many institutions are informed by
the previous attempts to solve the problem of authority.
It argues that the key pioneers of the social sciences
(Marx, Durkheim, Simmel, Tonnies and especially Weber)
regarded this question as one of the principal challenges

There are often blanket claims that the world is facing
more problems than ever but there is a lack of empirical
data to show where things have deteriorated or in fact
improved. In this book, some of the world-s leading
economists discuss ten problems that have blighted human
development, ranging from malnutrition, education, and
climate change, to trade barriers and armed conflicts.
Costs of the problems are quantified in percent of GDP,
giving readers a unique opportunity to understand the
development of each problem over the past century and the
likely development into the middle of this century, and
to compare the size of the challenges.

support of a well-reasoned theory of emancipation.The
author identifies the desire for emancipation as the
origin of the human empowerment trend and shows when and
why this desire grows strong, why it is the source of
democracy, and how it vitalizes civil society, feeds

treatments of the female head find their unique
articulation in diverse religious traditions and
cultures: in Hindu myths of beheading, in Buddhist and
Tantric practices and poetry about the hair of female
nuns, in the resistance to veiling by early Christian
women at Corinth, in contemporary veiling practices in a

manifested, mobilised and obscured in socially uneven
societies, particularly those fuelled by neoliberal
economic growth in the recent years.It approaches
difference as a double edged concept that allows one to
make sense of the tensions that are played out between
-cosmopolitan- convergence and -multicultural- diversity,
between expanding middle classes and increasingly
disenfranchised poor groups, between the global and the
local.This book presents a series of empirical
explorations of how difference is articulated, desired,
levelled, governed and even subverted in the socio-
economically uneven landscapes of India and China. They
examine how difference emerges out of daily practice,
categorisation processes, dividing practices, nation
building efforts and identity projects.

This book examines the evolution of inequality in China
from 2002 to 2007, a period when the new -harmonious
society- development strategy was adopted under Hu Jintao
and Wen Jiabao. It fills a gap in knowledge about the
outcomes of this development strategy for equity and
inequality. Drawing on original information collected from
the recent two waves of nationwide household surveys
conducted by the China Household Income Project, this
book provides a detailed overview of recent trends in
income inequality and cutting-edge analysis of key
factors underlying such trends.

This book largely focuses on the current contexts of
popular visual culture. Both "popular" and "visual" as
specific forms of modern culture have only recently
received serious academic attention in India. Some of the
factors which have supplied new frames to these cultural
categories are the emergence of modern communication
technologies - digital media, TV, and film - as well as
emergent new disciplines such as cultural studies, visual
studies, film, and media studies.

This book offers analysis of articulation of consumer
culture and modernity in everyday lives of people in a
transnational framework. It pursues three broad themes:
lifestyle choices and construction of modern identities,
fashion and advertising and subaltern concerns and moral
subjectivities. It juxtaposes empirical studies with
theoretical traditions in addressing questions such as
how do people imagine modernity and identity in consumer
culture? Are modernity and tradition antithetical to or
develop an interface with each other? The chapters in the
book trace manifestations and trajectories of consumer
culture and modernity as they connect to develop a sense
of renewed identity.

young voters? Do youth vote more enthusiastically if
there are young candidates contesting elections?The book
looks at the level of awareness of the youth about
political issues and analyzes youth interest and
participation in electoral politics. It also points out
that a large percentage of Indian youth would be willing
to take up politics as their career choice. However there

The author engaged in a unique lifelong effort both to

brings his analysis up to the present--the world of 2013.
Changes in contemporary capitalism require an updating of
definitions and analysis of social classes, class
struggles, political parties, social movements and the
ideological forms in which they express their modes of
action in the transformation of societies. The author
meets this challenge and lays bare the reality of
monopoly capitalism in its general, global form.
Ultimately, he demonstrates that this system is not
viable and that the implosion in progress is unavoidable.

Viewing the waterscapes as conduits of much economic and
cultural sharing between peoples and lands, the focus of
this book is on the oceans and seas the Indian, the
Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans and the Mediterranean Sea
and economic, military and cultural transmissions within
and across them. The book shows how conventional arguments
in history writing about the rise of the West, the
hegemon of the State and the might of overseas colonial
empires can be overturned by emphasizing on dynamic,
collaborative, nonlinear networks as opposed to formal
networks based on hierarchy. Such networks signal a
completely different picture about global interactions in
the period 1400 1800, emphasizing the centrality of
peoples and commodities at different times in different
parts of the world.It tells what happens when the sea of
history meets the sea of network analysis.

In 1985, the British Treasury claimed that academic
studies into the cyclical behaviour of wages demonstrated
that a cut in wages would increase employment. This book
contests this argument by presenting the results of
original, empirical work which illustrates the absence of
any systematic empirical regularity to wage movements
over the business cycle. This author argues that the re-
emergence of this debate must be seen within the context
of the theory of the -labour demand function-,
representing an attempt to challenge the Keynesian
theoretical assumptions implicit in the bulk of applied
macro economic work up to the late 1970s.

the strategic asset allocation of Pension Insurance Funds

analysis by simulating alternative investment models that

Sustainable development will not happen without
substantial contributions from and leading roles of
companies and business organizations. This requires the
provision of adequate information on corporate social and
ecological impacts and performance. Recently, research on
environmental management accounting (EMA) has
concentrated on developed countries and on cost-benefit
analysis of implementing individual EMA tools. Using a
comparative case study design, this book seeks to redress
the balance and improve the understanding of EMA in
management decision-making in emerging countries,
focussing specifically on South-East Asian companies. It
explores the relationship between decision situations and
the motivation for, and barriers to, the application of
clusters of EMA tools as well as the implementation

In the wake of the global financial crisis, leading
industrialized countries have managed to show only a
gradual recovery, while East Asian economies have surged
ahead. The region-s transition to growth based on a
balance of foreign and domestic demand is important for
both building a stronger foundation for sustainable
growth and buttressing global economic expansion. This
book illuminates policy issues involved in the efforts to
promote the rebalancing of demand in East Asia.

longitudinal data covering 1980 to 2010 from 17 high
income countries, this analysis helps achieve a major
milestone in comparative welfare state research both
conceptually and methodologically. The analysis conducted
in this book provides broader empirical tests for the
many propositions and discourses found in the literature
based largely on anecdotal evidence, case studies, and
unjustifiably limited quantitative data.

This book draws together the results of discussions from
the 58th Conference of the International law Association
held in Manila in September 1978.Many there, felt that
proposals for the establishment of a new international
economic order bristled with complex legal issues, which
merited the serious attention of lawyers. Moved by the
conviction that these proposals aimed at restructuring
international economic relations and effective a global
redistribution of wealth and power, presented a challenge
to legal creativity, the Conference adopted a resolution
urging the International Law Association to undertake a
study of the Legal Aspects of a New International
Economic Order. This book draws together the papers that
came from that study, to offer a fascinating and powerful
examination of the legal challenges thrown up by the
establishment of this new order.

An Arab-centric perspective dominates the West-s
understanding of Islam. The author presses for a
reorientation that would conceptualize Islam instead as a
heterogeneous religion that has found a variety of
expressions in local contexts throughout history. The
Ismaili community in colonial India illustrates how much
more complex Muslim identity is, and always has been,
than the media would have us believe. The Aga Khan Case
focuses on a nineteenth-century court case in Bombay that
influenced how religious identity was defined in India
and subsequently the British Empire.

governance to offer fresh proposals for a deliberative

industry regulation, the author of this book maintains
that the healthy growth of the industry requires a
radical change in the entire policy approach. He offers
an alternative way forward describing an efficient system
of public policy generated through open public debate.

This book sets forth a thoroughly rigorous modern account
of the theoretical underpinnings of calculus: continuity,
differentiability, and convergence. Using a constructive
approach, every proof of every result is direct and
ultimately computationally verifiable. In particular,
existence is never established by showing that the
assumption of non-existence leads to a contradiction.

Many research studies in the social and economic fields
regard the collection and analysis of large amounts of
data. These data sets vary in their nature and
complexity, they may be one-off or repeated, they may be
hierarchical, spatial or temporal. The huge size of these
data-sets and their complexity require new strategies of
analysis sometimes subsumed under the terms -data mining-
or -predictive analytics’. This volume contains a peer
review selection of papers, whose preliminary version was
presented at the international meeting of the Italian
Statistical Society -Statistical Methods for the analysis
of large data-sets-. It collects new ideas, methods and
original applications to deal with the complexity and
high dimensionality of data.

Empathy dissolves the boundaries between self and others,
and feelings of altruism towards others are activated.
This book provides evidence from neuroscience and quantum
physics that it is empathy that connects humanity, and
that this awareness can create a more just society. It
extends interest in values-based management, exploring
the intellectual, physical, ecological, spiritual and
aesthetic well-being of organizations and society rather
than the more common management principles of maximising
profit and efficiency. It challenges the existing
paradigm of capitalism by providing scientific evidence
and empirical data that empathy is the most important
organizing mechanism.It provides a comprehensive review
of the transformational qualities of empathy in personal,
organizational and local contexts.

Innovations are a critical success factor for
organizations to survive. These tools, like innovation
communities, innovation contests, innovation toolkits,
and innovation market places, are subsumed under the term
open innovation platforms (OIPs).The skills required to
design and manage OIPs differ significantly from those
for a default website. Hence, typical lifecycle models
cannot be applied. Stefan Hallerstede addresses this gap
and develops a dedicated lifecycle management approach
for OIPs. In doing so, information systems and open
innovation literature are merged as well as the major
players in the market are introduced. The study builds on
three in-depth cases of professional OIP lifecycle
management, and compiles guidelines for managing each
phase of an OIP-s lifecycle.

Creativity and innovation are important drivers of
economic welfare and growth in contemporary
societies. Collaborating with and learning from users in
the early phase of the innovation process has been
considered a successful approach to stimulate those
creative sparks for organizations. However, the idea of
users as innovators has also invoked critical responses
especially in the context of innovations that are
discontinuous to dominant designs. The author explores
the potential that can arise through collaboration with
potential users who are not yet users. Those users at the
peripheries are perceived to contribute more novel
information, by which they better reflect shifts in needs
and behavior than current users at the center.

The author explains how much of what is sold in practice
under the guise of a pronounced market orientation is
nothing more than the telling of a fairy tale. And so the
story takes its course. Despite a perceived market
orientation the German engineering company Deutsche
Maschinenbau AG is losing its market share. But instead of
joining forces to systematically hunt down and identify
the causes of these losses, all those involved become
entangled in a mutual blame game. The breakthrough finally
comes when the CEO decides to make the cause his own,
demanding that market orientation must become a daily
common practice and a personally lived reality. It is a
lived shared value orientation and thus relevant for
every single employee on the company payroll. Only those
who are prepared to live this are in a position to act in
keeping with the needs and conditions of the market.

This magisterial analysis of human history combines the
insights of earlier generations of Marxist historians
with radical new ideas about the historical
process. Reading history against the grain, the author
reveals that what happened in the past was not
predetermined. Choices were frequent and numerous.
Different outcomes - liberation or barbarism - were often
possible. Rejecting the top-down approach of conventional
history, he contends that it is the mass action of
ordinary people that drives great events. At the
beginning of the 21st century - with economic disaster,
war, climate catastrophe and deep class divisions -
humans face perhaps the greatest crisis in the long
history of our species. The lesson of the book is that,
since we created our past, we can also create a better
