This book redefines the nature of modern business. In
contrast to recent trends, it has a focus on human-
centred manufacturing and on decision-making which goes
beyond a focus on short-term profit. The liberal
capitalism of the USA and the UK is not the only
current variety of capitalism. The book pulls together
current research and practice and poses new questions
based on case studies. It addresses an intended audience
in business and universities, including business schools,
around the world.

The author begins this stimulating critical introduction
to the concept with an analysis of the origins of the
idea of community in Western utopian thought, and as a
theme in classical sociology and anthropology. He goes on
to chart the resurgence of the idea within communitarian
thought and postmodern philosophies, the complications
and critiques of multiculturalism, and new manifestations
of community within a society where changing modes of
communication produce both fragmentation and
possibilities of new social bonds.

operative movement, and how it is an important force in
promoting development and self-sufficiency in non-
industrialized areas, this book provides valuable insight

Examining the importance of cultural attitudes on human
resource practices, this book addresses an important, but
often neglected aspect of cross-cultural leadership. The
author discusses how the mindset of a manager can
influence cross-cultural leadership behavior and
behavioral intentions. It shows how an intercultural and
global approach improves managerial attitudes towards
different cultural values, intercultural interactions and
motivation. Using a behavioral intentions model to
provide a tool for predicting cross-cultural leadership
behavior, the author demonstrates how this can be applied
to human resource strategy and practice.

How would you feel about a bank that handles all of your
financial needs efficiently, but made you feel like a
dummy? In a relationship between two people, what the
other person thinks of you (or what you believe they
think of you) exerts great influence on the quality of
your relationship. The same is true for brands. In this
book, the author extends his theory on consumer brand
relationships introduced in the 90s. He introduces a new
construct, called "brands- attitude", which goes beyond
the familiar concept of brand love. Brands- attitude
describes more fully the two-way street that exists
between consumers and brands and fills a crucial gap in
traditional branding literature in explaining consumers-
brand purchasing and usage behavior.
