to published interviews, this selection of writings
represents Berg-s bioregional vision and its global,
local, urban, and rural applications. It provides a
highly accessible introduction to bioregional philosophy,
making Berg-s paradigm available as a guiding vision and
practical "greenprint" for the twenty-first century. This
valuable compilation lays the groundwork for future
research by offering the first-ever comprehensive
bibliography of Berg-s publications and should be of

327.101 BES 143330
This book focuses on the other side of the equation: the
transformation of the public dimension of governance in
the era of globalization. It analyses that
transformation, advancing two major claims: first, that
the public is beginning to play a more significant role
in global governance, and, second, that it takes a rather
different form than has traditionally been understood in
international relations theory. The authors suggest that
unless we transcend conventional wisdom about the public
as a distinct sphere, separate from the private domain,
we cannot understand the dynamics and consequences of its
apparent return. Using examples drawn from international
political economy, international security and
environmental governance, they argue that -the public-
should be conceptualized as a collection of culturally-
specific social practices.

The aim of this volume is to provide an introduction and
selective overview of the rapidly emerging field of
computational economics. Computational economics provides
an important set of tools that an increasing number of
economists will need to acquire in order to understand
and do state-of-the-art research in virtually all areas
of economics. Articles in the volume range from very
applied, policy oriented applications of computational
methods, to highly theoretical and mathematically complex
analyses of algorithms and numerical methods. The book
emphasizes the unique contributions of computational
methods in economics, and focuses on problems for which
well developed solutions are not already available from
the literature in operations research, numerical methods,
and computer science.

This book is a study of relationship amongst the railway
workers, unions and the state during 1960-74 and their
role in bringing about a countrywide railway strike in
1974. The author examines the rejection of the officially
sanctioned unions by many railway workers and their
attempts to give shape to new organisations which better
articulated their interests. Part One of the book analyses
the structural relationship amongst the officially
recognised unions, railway workers and the management,
and the reasons for the recognised unions- declining
support. Part Two discusses the strategies followed by
the recognised unions to undermine the new unions. Part
Three traces the course of the 1974 strike itself and the
government-s decision to crush the strike.

TRIPS reflects the dominant view that enforcing strong
intellectual property rights is necessary to solve
problems of trade and development. The global ensemble of
authors in this collection ask, how can TRIPS mature
further into an institution that supports a view of
economic development which incorporates the human rights
ethic already at work in the multilateralist geopolitics
driving international relations? In particular, how can
these human rights, seen as encompassing a whole -new-
set of collective interests such as public health,
environment, and nutrition, provide a pragmatic ethic for
shaping development policy? Some chapters address these
questions by describing recent successes, while others
propose projects in which these human rights can provide
ethical ground for influencing the forces at play in

This book offers an accessible philosophical treatment of
the broad range of ethical and policy challenges posed by
climate change uncertainty. Drawing on both the
philosophy of science and ethics, Martin Bunzl shows how
tackling climate change revolves around weighing up our
interests now against those of future generations, which
requires that we examine our assumptions about the value
of present costs versus future benefits. In an engaging,
conversational style, Bunzl looks at questions such as
our responsibility towards non-human life, the interests
of the developing and developed worlds, and how the
circumstances of poverty shape the perception of risk,
ultimate developing and defending a view of humanity and
its place in the world that makes sense of our duty to
Nature without treating it as a rights bearer.

change. Second, it explores the underlying political,
economic, and technological factors which form the
boundary conditions for climate change policy but which
are often ignored by policy makers and advocates.

Lean production has been proven unbeatable in organizing
production operations, yet the majority of attempts to
implement lean end in disappointing results. The critical
factor so often overlooked is that lean implementation
requires day-to-day, hour-by-hour management practices
and skills that leaders in conventional batch-and-queue
environments are neither familiar nor comfortable
with. Creating a lean culture helps lean leaders succeed
in their personal batch -to-lean transformation. Mann
provides critical guidance on developing and using the
key elements of a lean management system.
