Martha Nussbaum asks: How can we sustain a decent society
that aspires to justice and inspires sacrifice for the
common good? Amid negative emotions endemic even to good
societies, public emotions rooted in love--intense
attachments outside our control--can foster commitment to
shared goals and keep at bay the forces of disgust and

This book looks at how federalism is the best form of
decentralization and how the adoption of federalism will
take governance closer to the people and therefore how
it will take governance closer to the to the people and
therefore how it will positively impact on the
developmental processes. The book however, also has
caveats which it puts in place to say that federalism if
wrongly understood or wrongly implemented can produce
results which are contrary to what is expected.

In this book, the author introduces readers to the most
important methods of dynamic optimization used in
economics. The classical calculus of variations, optimal
control theory, and dynamic programming in its discrete
form are explained in the usual Chiang fashion--with
patience and thoroughness. The economic examples, selected
from both classical and recent literature, serve not only
to illustrate applications of the mathematical methods,
but also to provide a useful glimpse of the development
of thinking in several areas of economics.

countries: five in South Asia (Bangladesh, India, Nepal,
Sri Lanka and Bhutan), six in South-east Asia (Indonesia,
Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam and Laos)
and three in East Asia (China, Korea and Japan). It
explores how effective forest governance can be achieved
by bridging multi-level outcomes. Further, this volume
highlights the importance of context in defining flexible
policies for policy makers, development practitioners and
the academic communities of these countries. It also
provides assistance to government officers, NGOs and
academics based on relevant empirical information on

ISBN : 9789384323172.
512.7 ROB 144944
The new Second Edition of Neville Robbins- Beginning
Number Theory is a rich yet flexible account of classic
number theory, blending in numerous applications and
specialized treatments of many essential topics,
including Cryptology, Fibonacci Numbers, and
Computational Number Theory. It strikes a balance between
the traditional and algorithmic approaches to elementary
number theory and is supported with numerous exercises,
applications, and case studies throughout. Beginning
Number Theory is appropriate for use in a one-semester,
undergraduate number theory course. It is robust with
interesting facts, historical notes, and modern
applications, yet is clear and manageable for
introductory students. With 21st century applications,
this text is truly an entertaining and comprehensive
introduction to number theory.

This book presents important statistical concepts,
methods, and tools not covered in the authors- previous
volume. This second volume focuses on inference in non-
and semiparametric models. It not only reexamines the
procedures introduced in the first volume from a more
sophisticated point of view but also addresses new
problems originating from the analysis of estimation of
functions and other complex decision procedures and large
scale data analysis. It covers a number of topics that
are important in current measure theory and practice. It
emphasizes nonparametric methods which can really only be
implemented with modern computing power on large and
complex data sets.

This book aims to answer a simple question: How can
organisations succeed when the environment they operate
in is changing so quickly? The last thing businesses need
today is a digital strategy. The book doesn-t address
whether or not you should advertise on Facebook or invest
in virtual reality. It doesn-t seek to unearth a silver
bullet to make digital investments a sure-thing. It steps
back from the hype, and argues that whatever digital
might mean for your business, if you don-t create a
digital culture you-ll most likely fail, or at least fall
short of what you want to achieve.
