topics on a global level. As well as figuring prominently
in economics, it is possibly the most central topic of
sociology. Despite this, there has been no book until now
that unites approaches from economics and sociology.

This is a compelling analysis of the corporate economies
of China and India, which are having a huge impact not
just on the international economy, but also in the
geopolitical and international strategy sphere as a
result of an accelerated globalisation by these two
countries, which is unleashing powerful economic
challenges to corporate structures, economic institutions
and law worldwide. The big question is how after
centuries of underdevelopment China and now India are

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) account for
more than 90 per cent of all businesses in the Asia-
Pacific region - an area which is rapidly updating its
competition laws and regulations to encourage greater
enterpreneurship and open, dynamic economies. Yet SMEs
are almost invisible when those competition policies and
laws are developed and enforced.

Numbers and the Making of Us examines the origins and
effects of numbers--words and other symbols for
quantities. It focuses on the influence that numbers have
had on human thought. As a result of this influence, the
book claims, numbers transformed the human narrative.
This transformation is supported by data from many
disciplines: archaeology, linguistics, psychology, and
primatology. The book surveys the types of number systems
that have been innovated independently in languages
around the world, most of which (like our own decimal
system) owe themselves in one way or another to the shape
of our hands.

This book is a guide to modern production planning
methods based on new scientific achievements and various
practical planning rules of thumb. Several numerical
examples illustrate most of the calculation methods,
while the text includes a set of programs for calculating
production schedules and an example of a cloud-based
enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. Despite the
relatively large number of books dedicated to this topic,
Advanced Planning and Scheduling is the first book of its
kind to feature such a wide range of information in a
single work, a fact that inspired the author to write
this book and publish an English translation.
