This is comprehensive bibliography of temporal
scholarship research on the subject of time and the
phenomenon of time itself. As the author notes in his
introduction, the nature of research insights on the
subject of time is difficult to comprehend within the
confines of any specific discipline since relevant
materials are scattered throughout the literature in
numerous scholarly fields. By bringing together the most
significant published works in a wide variety of
disciplines, this unique compendium enables scholars and
researchers to look beyond their own particular area of
expertise when selecting appropriate resource materials.
Throughout, the focus is on the time dimension itself as
a problematic or researchable phenomenon rather than on
narrow topics such as time management, time series
analysis, or forecasting. Organized by discipline, the
work begins with an initial chapter that lists
general works on the time dimension. Nineteen chapters
then list works in particular disciplines ranging from
anthropology and culture to biology, economics, futures
studies, history, linguistics, management studies,
psychology, and more. The final chapter lists
miscellaneous entries which could not be categorized into
any of the specific disciplinary headings. Within each
chapter, entries are arranged alphabetically by author or
editor. Nearly all sources are from scholarly journals

This work explores the differences in thinking and social
action that exist between members of more than 50 modern
nations and will be the new benchmark for scholars and
professionals for years to come. It argues that people
carry `mental programmes- which are developed in the
family in early childhood and reinforced in school and
organizations, and that these mental programmes contain a
component of national culture. They are most clearly
expressed in the different values that predominate among
people from different countries.

In this book, authors spell out the implications of this
insight for both economic theory and policy. Taking as a
starting point Kenneth J. Arrow-s 1962 paper -Learning by
Doing-, they explain why the production of knowledge
differs from that of other goods and why market economies
alone are typically not efficient in the production and
transmission of knowledge. Closing knowledge gaps, or
helping laggards learn, is central to growth and
development. Combining technical economic analysis with
accessible prose, Stiglitz and Greenwald provide new
models of °endogenous growth,° upending the received
thinking about global policy and trade regimes. They show
how well-designed government trade and industrial
policies can help create a learning society, explain how
poorly designed intellectual property regimes can retard
learning, demonstrate how virtually every government
policy has effects, both positive and negative, on
learning, and they argue that policymakers need to be
cognizant of these effects. They provocatively show why
many standard policy prescriptions, especially associated
with °neoliberal° doctrines focusing on static resource
allocations, impede learning and explain why free trade
may lead to stagnation, while broad based industrial
protection and exchange rate interventions may bring
benefits, not just to the industrial sector, but to the
entire economy. The volume concludes with brief
commentaries from Philippe Aghion and Michael Woodford,
as well as from Nobel Laureates Kenneth Arrow and Robert

This book offers a varied picture of dalit experience in
different states in contemporary India. The essays draw
on factual research in rural and urban areas by experts
in the field. With case studies ranging from dalit
entrepreneurs in Bhopal to housewives in Tamil Nadu to ex
millworkers in Mumbai, the book contends that radically
progressive change and advance is attended by
discrimination and exclusion, as well as surprising new
areas of stigma.

in collaboration with the V.V. Giri National Labour
Institute, on the histories of work, from the long-term

thematically into four sections in order to highlight
some issues in focus at the conference and also to allow
a cross-national perspective to develop. The first
section addresses the long run of history, extending to
the late medieval and early modern period. The second
section comprises papers on work communities and the
development of their identity. The third section looks at
two of the oldest occupations in history, that of
soldiers and sailors. In the fourth section it elaborates
on that perception of work, the complexities of self-
perception and the socially ascribed status of workers in

This book examines China-s participation in the United
Nations (UN). There are two research components. First,
the author seeks to find a pattern of China-s
multilateral diplomatic behavior in the UN by examining
China-s behavior toward peacekeeping operations and arms
control issues during different leadership periods under
Mao Zedong, Deng Xiaoping, and Jiang Zemin respectively.
Second, a model is proposed to explain this pattern of
behavior. By marrying rationalism and constructivism,
this model argues that the amelioration of China-s
external security environment changes in its projected
self-image. Furthermore, China-s consistently strong view
of sovereignty determines its evolving pattern of
behavior in the UN.

A corporate lawyer in Washington goes to war against his
own company to defend the homeless. It happens after
Michael Brock is abducted by a homeless man and held
hostage. The homeless man is killed by a police
sharpshooter and the lawyer is rescued, but the
experience changes his life. Michael was in a hurry. He
was scrambling up the ladder at Drake and Sweeney, a giant
D.C. law firm with eight hundred lawyers. The money was
good and getting better, a partnership was three years
away. He was a rising star with no time to waste, no time
to stop, no time to toss a few coins into the cups of
panhandlers. No time for a conscience. But a violent
encounter with a homeless man stopped him cold. Michael
survived, his assailant did not.
