The book consists of 20 cases, including those from
Harvard and Stanford and the University of Southern
California. The cases cover a broad range of topics and
practice areas that are pertinent to current management
consulting. The six parts parallel the six parts in the
text, including an introduction to the cases by the
editors, delineating topics and issues that are critical
for today’s consultants. Several cases offer new insights
into the practice areas of Strategy, IT, Operations
Management, Change Management and more on Data Gathering
and the Future of Consulting. This casebook, together
with the text, will help to increase awareness among
consultants and students about skill requirements, as
well as make clients sensitive to what is demanded of
them in a highly competitive consulting environment.

This book gives a cogent exposition of the methodological
issues in social research to the beginners. A budding
scientist becomes perplexed with bewildering array of
techniques and methodologies applied in social and
behavioral research. The book tries to answer many of the
questions that overwhelm a young researcher when
confronted with diverse issues and techniques employed in
social research. The book highlights the norms and the
rules a research scientist ought to adhere in a social
discourse and it also delves with issues like "Why study
research methodology?" to most of the conventional topics
as research design, sampling, data collection techniques,
scaling and measurement issues, data analysis and data
storing using computer support.

This book presents both explorations of broad general
concepts and specific empirical analyses. The many
interactions between the two modes of analysis provide
valuable insights for the reader. Readings in the first
section cover basic theoretical concepts and analytical
distinctions that apply to the study of institutions
generally. The second section includes conceptual pieces
specifically addressed to the nature of governance in
metropolitan areas, while section three reports on a
series of empirical studies of police performance.
Section four again broadens the focus to highlight the
overall organization of local public economies. The final
section discusses conceptual advances that have
continuing relevance for research and policy debates.

This Very Short Introduction explores the historical
impact of plague over the centuries, the ways in which it
has been interpreted, and the powerful images it has left
behind in art and literature. Paul Slack assesses its
causes, which have often been disputed and are now being
illuminated by microbiologists and archaeologist, and he
looks at possible reasons for its periodic disappearance
from whole continents. He shows what plague meant for
those who suffered from it, and how governments began to
fight against it and in doing so invented modern notions
of public health.

Everyone wins this game of literary tennis, a comedy of
manners about envy in which Wickham skewers the nouveau
riche. At their country estate, Patrick Chance and his
wife host a weekend tennis party. As four couples gather
on the sunny terrace, it seems obvious who among them is
succeeding, and who is falling behind. But by the end of
the party, nothing will be quite as certain. While the
couples° children amuse themselves with pony rides and
rehearsals for a play, the adults suffer a series of
personal revelations and crises. Wickham’s nonstop action
reveals at every turn that matters may not be as they
seem, and in the end one thing is crystal clear: the
weekend is about anything but tennis.
