Citizenship and identity : in the age of surveillance /

This book is a study of cultures of surveillance, from
CCTV to genetic data-gathering and the new forms of
subjectivity and citizenship that are forged in such
cultures. It studies data, bodies and space as domains
within which this subjectivity of the vulnerable
individual emerges. The book also proposes that we can
see a shift within cultures of surveillance where, from
active participation in the process of surveilling, a
witness-citizen emerges. The book therefore seeks to
alter surveillance as a mere top-down system, instead
arguing that surveillance is also a mode of engagement
with the world enabling trust, accountability and
eventually a responsible humanitarianism.

This volume brings together research on development in
three major areas of contemporary global relevance:
agriculture and food security, energy, and the
institutions of national innovation. Covering six of the
largest emerging and developing economies (EDEs) in the
world, three Asian (China, India and Malaysia), two Latin
American (Brazil and Mexico), and one African (South
Africa), the book offers insights on how the major EDEs
have addressed the complex and increasingly interrelated
issues of agricultural growth, food security and access
to energy as part of their growth and development
experience over the last three decades. Underscoring the
broader view of institutions of national innovation
capacities, the volume presents the role of domestic
policy and macroeconomic fluctuations in shaping the
innovation capacities and development policy in these

The financial system and its regulation have undergone
exponential growth and dramatic reform over the last
thirty years. This period has witnessed major
developments in the nature and intensity of financial
markets, as well as repeated cycles of regulatory reform
and development, often linked to crisis conditions. The
recent financial crisis has led to unparalleled interest
in financial regulation from policymakers, economists,
legal practitioners, and the academic community, and has
prompted large-scale regulatory reform. The Oxford
Handbook of Financial Regulation is the first
comprehensive, authoritative, and state-of-the-art
account of the nature of financial regulation. Written by
an international team of leading scholars in the field,
it takes a contextual and comparative approach to examine
scholarly, policy, and regulatory developments in the
past three decades.

We know that a revolution-s success largely depends on
the army-s response to it. But can we predict the
military-s reaction to an uprising? How Armies Respond to
Revolutions and Why argues that it is possible to make a
highly educated guess--and in some cases even a confident
prediction--about the generals- response to a domestic
revolt if we know enough about the army, the state it is
supposed to serve, the society in which it exists, and
the external environment that affects its actions.
Through concise case studies of modern uprisings in Iran,
China, Eastern Europe, Burma, and the Arab world, Zoltan
Barany looks at the reasons for and the logic behind the
variety of choices soldiers ultimately make .

In this book, Bharat Karnad delves exclusively into these
hard power aspects of India-s rise and the problems
associated with them. He offers an incisive analysis of
the deficits in the country-s military capabilities and
in the -software- related to hard power--absence of
political vision and will, insensitivity to strategic
geography, and unimaginative foreign and military
policies -and arrives at powerful arguments on why these
shortfalls have prevented the country from achieving the
great power status.

freight and supply chain / Michael Sales.-- London:

Aviation Logistics looks at the function of the air cargo
business and its role in global supply chains and
logistics. As global economies are constantly evolving,
the supply chain business with its transport partners
must be proactive for the future. Technology and its
resulting efficiency and transparency are therefore a
central part of this book. Aviation Logistics examines
how carriers are coming up with new methods and
technologies to improve ground handling and road
transport, traceability systems and barcoding, security
and screening, and safe delivery of perishable items
(such as in the pharmaceutical and medical sectors).
Endorsed by The International Air Cargo Association
(TIACA), Aviation Logistics is supplemented with case
studies and contributions from a team of experts
including Oliver Evans and Stan Wraight, both industry

More than ever before, radiation is a part of our modern
daily lives. We own radiation-emitting phones, regularly
get diagnostic x-rays, such as mammograms, and submit to
full-body security scans at airports. We worry and debate
about the proliferation of nuclear weapons and the safety
of nuclear power plants. But how much do we really know
about radiation? And what are its actual dangers? An
accessible blend of narrative history and science,
Strange Glow describes mankind-s extraordinary, thorny
relationship with radiation, including the hard-won
lessons of how radiation helps and harms our health.

with Paraguay. He had a new name, Danilo Silva, and his
appearance had been changed by plastic surgery. The
search had taken four years. They-d chased him around the
world, always just missing him. It had cost their clients
$3.5 million. But so far none of them had complained.

Imagine a year without Christmas. No crowded malls, no
corny office parties, no fruitcakes, no unwanted
presents. That’s just what Luther and Nora Krank have in
mind when they decide that, just this once, they’ll skip
the holiday altogether. Theirs will be the only house on
Hemlock Street without a rooftop Frosty, they won’t be
hosting their annual Christmas Eve bash, they aren’t even
going to have a tree. They won’t need one, because come
December 25 they are setting sail on a Caribbean cruise.
But as this weary couple is about to discover, skipping
Christmas brings enormous consequences’ and isn’t half as
easy as they’d imagined. .
