This book provides critical insights into the dynamic
processes of conflict and cooperation in relation to oil,
gas and minerals, recognizing that there is no easy and
clear separation between areas of cooperation and of
conflict and that these relations co-exist in complex and
continually evolving ways. The contributors argue that
the nature of conflict and cooperation is increasingly
being shaped by the shift towards state capitalism in
many parts of the resource-producing world.

This book provides a comprehensive and accessible
introduction to basic macroeconomic concepts, methods and
principles and their application to real world data. It
offers a completely new angle to policy with a focus on
the truly global level. Underpinned by empirical
orientation of state-of-the-art data, it introduces earth
economics as the study of the economy of our planet from
the perspective of an autarkic system (a -closed
economy-), focusing on policymaking that improves global
rather than national welfare.

Management and neoliberalism : connecting policies and

(Routledge studies in Management, organizations and

ISBN : 9780415737241.

This book examines the consequences of neoliberalism for
management thinking and management practice. Managerial
practices in organizations are fundamentally affected by
a political agenda emphasizing competition and
innovation. Concepts such as auditing, corporate social
responsibility, shareholder value, and boundary less
careers are some examples of managerial terms and
frameworks that are inextricably entangled with the
neoliberal agenda. This book introduces the literature on
neoliberalism, its history and controversies, and
demonstrates where neoliberal thinking has served to
rearticulate managerial practice, including in the areas
of corporate governance, human resource management, and
regulatory control of organizations.

This book explores the implications of using a positive
approach to a healthy workplace as opposed to a stress
management one. Some of the interventions described in
this book target individuals and their attitudes and
behaviors, others target workplace relationships, work
units and the wider organization. The factors associated
with the success of these interventions are identified
and advice is given as to how interested individuals and
organizations might proceed to develop worksite
interventions on their own.

This book establishes the -contextualization- of the
learning organization idea as a research field. In
contrast to much of the previous literature, which has
approached the learning organization as a panacea that
every organization could and should adopt, this major new
Handbook puts the learning organization into context. It
examines the relevance of the learning organization idea
to organizations in various specific contexts, employing
examples from a wide variety of cultures including China
and Islamic nations, and from industries as diverse as
the police force, care services for the elderly and
