theory, ethnography, and case study. The authors compare
the approaches and relate research designs to each of the
traditions of inquiry in a highly accessible manner.
Featuring new content, articles, pedagogy, references,
and expanded coverage of ethics throughout, the book is
an introduction to the theories, strategies, and
practices of qualitative inquiry.

The author tells the story of how a small group of
libertarian entrepreneurs began in the 1990s to hijack
the original decentralized vision of the Internet, in the
process creating three monopoly firms -- Facebook, Amazon
and Google -- that now determine the future of the music,
film, television, publishing and news industries. The
book offers a prescription for how artists can reclaim
their audiences using knowledge of the past and a
determination to work together. Using his own half
century career as a music and film producer and early
pioneer of streaming video online, the author offers new
ways to think about the design of the World Wide Web and
specifically the way we live with the firms that dominate

How much of our fate is tied to the status of our parents
and grandparents? How much does it influence our
children? More than we wish to believe. While it has been
argued that rigid class structures have eroded in favor
of greater social equality, The Son Also Rises proves
that movement on the social ladder has changed little
over eight centuries. Using a novel technique--tracking
family names over generations to measure social mobility
across countries and periods--renowned economic historian
Gregory Clark reveals that mobility rates are lower than
conventionally estimated, do not vary across societies,
and are resistant to social policies.

A wealth of research in recent decades has seen the
economic approach to human behavior extended over many
areas previously considered to belong to sociology,
political science, law, and other fields. Research has
also shown that economics can illuminate many aspects of
sports, including soccer. Beautiful Game Theory is the
first book that uses soccer to test economic theories and
document novel human behavior. In this brilliant and
entertaining book, Ignacio Palacios-Huerta illuminates
economics through the world-s most popular sport.

One of the central tenets of mainstream economics is Adam
Smith-s proposition that, given certain conditions, self-
interested behavior by individuals leads them to the
social good, almost as if orchestrated by an invisible
hand. This deep insight has, over the past two centuries,
been taken out of context, contorted, and used as the
cornerstone of free-market orthodoxy. In Beyond the
Invisible Hand, Kaushik Basu argues that mainstream
economics and its conservative popularizers have
misrepresented Smith-s insight and hampered our
understanding of how economies function, why some

We live in a world obsessed by luxury. Long-distance
airlines compete to offer first-class -sleeping
experiences- and hotels recommend exclusive suites where
you are never disturbed. Luxury is a rapidly changing
global industry that makes the headlines daily in our
newspapers and on the internet. More than ever, luxury is
a pervasive presence in the cultural and economic life of
the West - and increasingly too in the emerging economies
of Asia and Latin America.

This book provides a detailed examination of the impact
of globalisation on plantation labour, dominated by women
labour, in India. The studies presented here highlight
the perpetuation of low wages, inferior social status and
low human development of workers in this sector and point
out the movement of labour away from this sector and the
resultant labour shortage. It also highlights the perils
involved in doing away with the Plantation Labour Act
1951 and provides a plausible way forward for improving
the conditions of plantation workers.

From the New York Times bestselling author of This Time
Is Different, "a fascinating and important book" (Ben
Bernanke) about phasing out most paper money to fight
crime and tax evasion-and to battle financial crises by
tapping the power of negative interest rates. The world is
drowning in cash-and it-s making us poorer and less safe.
In The Curse of Cash, Kenneth Rogoff, one of the world-s
leading economists, makes a persuasive and fascinating
case for an idea that until recently would have seemed
outlandish: getting rid of most paper money.

In one lifetime, GDP, or Gross Domestic Product, has
ballooned from a narrow economic tool into a global
article of faith. It is our universal yardstick of
progress. As The Little Big Number demonstrates, this
spells trouble. While economies and cultures measure
their performance by it, GDP ignores central facts such
as quality, costs, or purpose. It only measures output:
more cars, more accidents, more lawyers, more trials,
more extraction, more pollution--all count as success.
Sustainability and quality of life are overlooked. Losses
don-t count. GDP promotes a form of stupid growth and
ignores real development.

If you had a 10 percent chance of having a fatal car
accident, you-d take necessary precautions. If your
finances had a 10 percent chance of suffering a severe
loss, you-d reevaluate your assets. So if we know the
world is warming and there-s a 10 percent chance this
might eventually lead to a catastrophe beyond anything we
could imagine, why aren-t we doing more about climate
change right now? We insure our lives against an
uncertain future--why not our planet? In Climate Shock,
Gernot Wagner and Martin Weitzman explore in lively,
clear terms the likely repercussions of a hotter planet,
drawing on and expanding from work previously unavailable
to general audiences. They show that the longer we wait
to act, the more likely an extreme event will happen.

foregone conclusion at its outset. Shane Greenstein
traces the evolution of the Internet from government
ownership to privatization to the commercial Internet we

Greenstein shows how mainstream service providers that
had traditionally been leaders in the old-market economy
became threatened by innovations from industry outsiders
who saw economic opportunities where others didn-t--and
how these mainstream firms had no choice but to innovate

In Success and Luck, bestselling author and New York

surprising implications of those findings to show why the
rich underestimate the importance of luck in success and
why that hurts everyone, even the wealthy. Frank describes
how, in a world increasingly dominated by winner-take-all
markets, chance opportunities and trivial initial
advantages often translate into much larger ones and
enormous income differences over time, how false beliefs
about luck persist, despite compelling evidence against
them, and how myths about personal success and luck shape
individual and political choices in harmful ways.
