(CSR, sustainability, ethics and governance).
ISBN : 9783319291567.

This book presents and deconstructs the existing
explanations for the differential career development of
qualified men and women. It reframes the problem of
discrimination in the workplace as a matter of
organizational ethics, social responsibility and
compliance with existing equal opportunity laws.
Sensitive points are identified where social biases,
decision-makers- individual economic interests and
shortcomings of organizational incentive policies may
lead to discrimination against qualified women.

In Latin American history, women have not only played key
roles within the family and society, but have long been
active participants in political and economic life. The
explosion of research over the last fifteen years
testifies to how much we still have to learn about their
experiences. Women and Gender in Modern Latin America
brings together selections from recent scholarship with
excerpts from an exciting array of primary sources, many
translated into English for the first time, to bring the
story of women’s involvement in modern Latin American
history up to date.

This book offers a fresh perspective on these issues by
bringing together a range of academics from law, history,
economics and business to look in more depth at the
changing relationships between crises and complexity in
the US and UK financial markets. The contributors are
motivated by three main questions: Is the present
financial system more complex than in the past and, if
so, why? To what extent, and in what ways, does the
worldwide financial crisis of 2007-2008 differ from past
financial crises? * How can governments, regulators and
businesses better manage and deal with increased levels
of complexity both in the present and in the future?
Students and scholars of finance, economics, history,
financial law, banking and international business will
find this book to be of interest. It will also be of use
to regulators and policymakers involved in the US and UK

A limit order book is essentially a file on a computer
that contains all orders sent to the market, along with
their characteristics such as the sign of the order,
price, quantity and a timestamp. The majority of
organized electronic markets rely on limit order books to
store the list of interests of market participants on
their central computer. A limit order book contains all
the information available on a specific market and it
reflects the way the market moves under the influence of
its participants. This book discusses several models of
limit order books. It begins by discussing the data to
assess their empirical properties, and then moves on to
mathematical models in order to reproduce the observed
properties. Finally, the book presents a framework for

The role and significance of institutions in home and
host countries in the process of firm
internationalization has recently attracted the ever
increasing attention of scholars and practitioners in the
area of international business. Though some publications
have been in circulation there still is a scarcity of
appropriate insights concerning the impacts and the role
of institutions in the diverse home and host contexts in
which firms internationalize.

Family business has become an increasingly studied field
over the last decade and forms one of the fastest growing
research areas today. The uniqueness of family business
is the interaction between two systems: the family and
the firm, leading to specific characteristics that we
rarely see in other types of businesses. In order to
understand the unique interaction between these two
systems, researchers have adopted a diverse range of
theories drawn from different fields.

Rethinking Corporate Governance-s extensive and
insightful empirical investigation offers a radically new
approach to corporate governance. This ground-breaking
volume describes and analyses the key nature-based and
actor-based forces that ultimately determine corporate
governance processes and long-term corporate paths.
Generally, such forces work in complex and intricate
interplays that to a large extent vary among
corporations. The new possibilities that this creates for
explaining how processes develop and ultimately influence
corporate paths are presented in depth. Featuring
conclusions based on an empirical material that is both
rich and exclusive, the book also contains extensive non-
anonymized materials from authentic corporate governance
