The book covers anthropology,sociology and an appraisal
of Jung and sociological theory. The author explores the
relationship between Jung and sociology, asking what the
writers included here wanted from Jung, how we should locate
Jung on the sociological landscape, and how this might link to
anthropology. In conclusion he suggests that sociology’s
problem with Jung is less that he is difficult to place,
than that he compels sociology to face some of its own
inconsistencies and evasions.

In this book, the author explains how data science and
digital traces help us solve the puzzle of unintended
consequences-offering the solution to a social paradox
that has intrigued thinkers for centuries. She discusses
how the unpredictability of social life relates to
communication networks, social influence, and the
unintended effects that derive from individual decisions.
She describes how communication generates social dynamics
in aggregate (leading to episodes of "collective
effervescence") and discusses the mechanisms that
underlie large-scale diffusion, when information and
behavior spread "like wildfire." She applies the theory
of networks to illuminate why collective outcomes can
differ drastically even when they arise from the same

In this volume, interdisciplinary scholars from India and

the varieties of prejudice and stigma that pervade
contemporary social and political life. These include
prejudice along the axes of caste, race, gender identity,
age, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, religion,
and economic class. In examining these forms of stigma
and their intersections, the authors present
theoretically pluralistic and empirically sensitive
accounts that both explain group-based stigma and suggest

In this book, the author focuses on women-s
underrepresentation in leadership roles and asks why it
persists and what we can do about it. She explores the
reasons, including women-s family roles, unconscious
gender bias, and exclusion from professional development
networks. She stresses that we cannot address the problem
at the individual level, instead, she argues that we need
broad-based strategies that address the deep-seated
structural and cultural conditions facing women. She
surveys a range of professions-politics, management, law,
and academia-and draws from a survey of prominent women
to develop solutions that can successfully chip away at

In this book, the author examines the quiet
transformation of asset management through the rise of
passive or index investing. An ETF(exchange-traded fund)
is an investment vehicle that trades intraday and seeks
to replicate the performance of a specific index. ETFs
have grown substantially in size, diversity, and market
significance in recent years. These trends have generated
considerable interest, especially from retail and
institutional investors and increasingly from academics,
regulators and the press. ETFs have the power to be a
disruptive innovation to today-s asset management
industry because many traditional active managers and
hedge funds deliver a significant fraction of their
active returns via static exposures to factors like

as well as their structure. It examines various ways to

Its vision is of a society built on empathy and social
solidarity and its mission is that of creating self-
sufficiency among the entrepreneurial poor. This book
examines whether Akhuwat fulfills its promises of not
pushing loans or encouraging clients to get on a debt
treadmill and helping them to avoid high debt burdens by
charging no interest and easing repayment terms.

This book discusses and problematizes how regulation is
affecting bank strategies as well as their financial
accounting and management control systems. It is evident
from annual reports of banks that the number of new
regulations in recent years is high and that they cover
many different functional areas. The objectives of these
regulations are also ambitious, to improve governance and
control, contributing to a high level of financial
stability for banks. These objectives are obviously of
great concern for an industry that directly and
indirectly affects the financial situation not only of
individuals and organizations but also nation states.
