covering issues such as women in cyberspace, women in the
sciences, the safety of women, economic equality and
gender neutrality, women in urban space, etc. The second
section touches upon important issues of identity and
marginalization of tribals, dalits, minorities, the aged,
children, and the disabled. Providing a good discussion
on the ongoing debates, this collection provides a deeper
understanding of gender, identity, and the issue of
marginalization in the globalizing society.

The book examines ways in which fast food businesses have
created a system of operation based on efficiency,
calculability, predictability, and control, and how the
same principles have been applied to other settings and
contexts as diverse as motel chains, "big box" stores,
churches, child care centers, college rankings, health
care providers, the Internet, and political
participation. The author also looks at attempts to
resist and reverse the effects of McDonalization.
"McDonalization" has become part of the lexicon of
contemporary sociological theory, and the book has been
widely adopted and read for over twenty years by hundreds
of thousands of students in a wide variety of courses,
including many courses created specifically to explore
the phenomena of McDonaldization.

This book covers the basics of statistical inference in
support of a subsequent course on classical econometrics.
The book shows how mathematical statistics concepts form
the basis of econometric formulations. It also helps them
think about statistics as more than a toolbox of
techniques. It explores the unifying themes involved in
quantifying sample information to make inferences. After
developing the necessary probability theory, it presents
the concepts of estimation, such as convergence, point
estimators, confidence intervals, and hypothesis tests.
The text then shifts from a general development of
mathematical statistics to focus on applications
particularly popular in economics. It delves into matrix
analysis, linear models, and nonlinear econometric

adopting an explanatory framework of the labour-

provides an historical analysis of the formation and
transformation of the East Asian regional political
economy from the end of the Second World War to the
present, with particular reference to Japan, South Korea,

This book explains how to study risk embedded in
financial transactions between the bank and its
counterparty. The authors provide an analytical basis for
the quantitative methodology of dynamic valuation,
mitigation, and hedging of bilateral counterparty risk on
over-the-counter (OTC) derivative contracts under funding
constraints. They explore credit, debt, funding,
liquidity, and rating valuation adjustment (CVA, DVA,
FVA, LVA, and RVA) as well as replacement cost (RC),
wrong way risk, multiple funding curves, and collateral.
The book focuses on the interaction and possible overlap
between DVA and FVA terms. It also explores the
particularly challenging issue of counterparty risk in
portfolio credit modeling.

This book examines the nationhood of India as a socio-
political construct by examining the postcolonial texts
of three well known authors. Despite the noticeable
differences in terms of linguistic and stylistic
tendencies, the three authors - Salman Rushdie, Vikram
Seth, and Arundhati Roy - have explored the concept of
identity and resilience through the multi-faceted lens of
religion, language, caste, sex, family, community, and
the collective past. India is represented as a construct
that constitutes a dream, a collage of many colors, and a
blending of cultures and nationalities in a pluralistic
society. The canonical texts by Rushdie, Seth, and Roy
offer a clear elucidation of the ways in which socially
marginalized forces play out at the level of the
individual and the nation.

This book analyzes the economic development of leading
European empires and the United States of America. The
author exposes the myths of the spontaneous emergence of
the market economy and the role of government as a
disincentive towards private initiative, when for
centuries the state power has been carrying out a
"coercing to the market" with all its strength. This book
presents a somewhat epic depiction of the development of
Western hegemonic powers within the capitalist world
system, from the struggles of the late Middle Ages to the
rise and crisis of the American Empire. It both develops
and questions some of the traditional assumptions of the
world-system theory, arguing that it was very much the
political form of the state that shaped capitalism as we
know it and that, though the existence of a hegemonic
power results from the logic of the system, hegemony is
often missing in reality.
