Good and evil, loyalty and treachery, faith and doubt,
honour and ignominy the Mahabharata has served as a
primer for codes of conduct to generations of Hindus. In
this reinterpretation, the author analyses how the values
espoused in the Mahabharata came to be distorted into
meager archetypes, creating customary laws that injure
society even today.

collective financial statecraft, and the motivations of
each individual government for collaborating through the
BRICS club. Their cooperative financial statecraft takes
various forms, ranging from pressure for "inside reforms"
of either multilateral institutions or global markets, to
"outside options" exercised through creating new
multilateral institutions or jointly pushing for new
realities in international financial markets.

Over the past twenty years, the study of industrial
organization--the analysis of imperfectly competitive
markets--has grown from a niche area of microeconomics to
a key component of economics and of related disciplines
such as finance, strategy, and marketing. This book
provides an issue-driven introduction to industrial
organization. It includes a vast array of examples, from
both within and outside the United States. While formal
in its approach, the book is written in a way that
requires only basic mathematical training. Supplemental
materials posted on the Web make more extensive use of
algebra and calculus.

Economic Models for Industrial Organization focuses on
the specification and estimation of econometric models
for research in industrial organization. In recent
decades, empirical work in industrial organization has
moved towards dynamic and equilibrium models, involving
econometric methods which have features distinct from
those used in other areas of applied economics. These
lecture notes, aimed for a first or second-year PhD
course, motivate and explain these econometric methods,
starting from simple models and building to models with
the complexity observed in typical research papers.

In this book, the author examines Adolf Hitler-s time in
Munich between 1918 and 1926, the years when Hitler shed
his awkward, feckless persona and transformed himself
into a savvy opportunistic political operator who saw
himself as Germany-s messiah. After opportunistically
fluctuating between the ideas of the left and the right,
Hitler emerged as an astonishingly flexible leader of
Munich-s right-wing movement. The tragedy for Germany and
the world was that Hitler found himself in Munich, had he
not been in Bavaria in the wake of the war and the
revolution, his transformation into a National Socialist
may never have occurred. In the book, the author
brilliantly charts this tragic metamorphosis,
dramatically expanding our knowledge of how Hitler became
a lethal demagogue.
