This 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.

325.3 PRA 144524
This book takes up a question that has rarely been raised
in the field of management: "Could modern Western
colonialism have important implications for the practices
and theories that inform management and organizations?"
Employing the framework of postcolonial theory, an
international group of scholars addresses this question,
and offers remarkable insights about the implications of
the colonial encounter for management. Wide-ranging in
scope, the book covers major topics like cross-cultural
management, control and resistance, corporate culture,
the discourse of exoticization in museums and tourism,
and stakeholder issues, and sheds new light on the
troubling legacy of colonialism.

on the idea that the world-s economies are a function of
the earth-s ecosystems -- an idea that radically reverses
the world view of neoclassical economics. This book

This book documents the history of Tamil cinema, one of
the most colossal film industries in the worldand studies
the major studios of Madras, the largest outside
classical Hollywood in the private sector. It engages with
five major studios of Madras-Modern Theatres, AVM,
Gemini, Vijaya-Vauhiniand Prasad - through the origins of
their foundersand explicates how their history influenced
the narratives, genreand ideology of the canonical films
made in Madras studios, arguing for their lasting
influence on Tamil cinema. Based on rare primary and
secondary materials and oral history, this book engages
with Tamil cinema at the intersection of its industrial,
culturaland socio-political history to argue for its
specificity in terms of its aesthetics and its belief in
the potential of the medium to mobilize audiences for
ideology, politics and reflexivity.

Badal Sircar (1925-2011) is one of the most important and
influential figures in the history of post-independence
Indian theatre. As a playwright, he contributed seminal
texts which have inspired the country-s leading directors
and continue to be produced by younger groups. In terms
of form, he was responsible for Third (later called Free)
Theatre, an urban theatre which was alternative, non-
proscenium, mobile and very physical. As a theorist and
philosopher of Indian theatre, he opened up the discourse
to include concerns with democratic human interaction and
a search for a more just and equitable society. As a
teacher and mentor, he traveled widely across the country
holding workshops which had a deep impact on hundreds of
theatre workers, including some major directors. This
book is a full-length, detailed study of Badal Sircar-s
life and work, with its three distinct phases: the
playwriting for the proscenium stage, with path-breaking
texts like Evam Indrajit, Pagla Ghoda and Baki Itihas,
the departure to non-proscenium physical theatre focused
on the actor, with its social critique and commitment to
conscientisation, and the dissemination phase of
extensive workshops and mentoring.
