   1 Jovic, Branislav
Synchronization techniques for chaotic communication
systems / Branislav Jovic.-- Berlin: Springer-Verlag,
xvi, 346p. 24cm.
ISBN : 9783642218484.
003.857 JOV 133430
This book is dealing exclusively with the synchronization
techniques for chaotic communication systems. It
describes a number of novel robust synchronization
techniques, which there is a lack of, for single and
multi user chaotic communication systems published and
highly cited in world-s leading journals in the area. In
particular, it presents a solution to the problem of
robust chaotic synchronization by presenting the first
fully synchronized, highly secure, chaos based DS-CDMA
system. The book also presents a detailed literature
review on the topic of synchronization of chaotic
communication systems. Furthermore, it presents the
literature review on the general topic of chaotic
synchronization and how those ideas led to the
application of chaotic signals to secure chaotic
communication systems.

Ethics and public policy : a philosophical inquiry /
Jonathan Wolff.-- London: Routledge, 2011.
ix, 230p. 21cm.
ISBN : 9780415668538.
172 WOL 133420
This book sets the bar for how moral philosophy can
inform, and be informed by, public policy debates. The
book is to subject important and controversial areas of
public policy to philosophical scrutiny. The author, a
renowned philosopher and veteran of many public
committees, such as the Gambling Review Body, introduces
and assesses core problems and controversies in public
policy from a philosophical standpoint. Each chapter is
cent red on an important area of public policy where
there is considerable moral and political disagreement.

ISBN : 9781402084287.

This book seeks to contribute to a more adequate
coalescence of ethics and business with innovative models
for such coalescence, for the mutual benefit of business
ethicists, professors teaching in the undergraduate and
MBA classroom, corporate executives. The world has become
a -village- and what were once thought of as
externalities can no longer be dismissed as not part of
the decision equation in business ventures. The alleged
separation of business from ethics can no longer be a
viable approach, if it ever was, as companies move into
alien cultures and affect, both positively and sometimes
questionably, traditional, non-western and nonindustrial
mores of local communities. Globalization has challenged
our parochial management thinking. This collection of
essays helps to refocus our conceptual work about
commerce and business practices in this new century of
global enterprise.

Just the arguments : 100 of the most important arguments
in western philosophy / Michael Bruce and Steven Barbone.

xiii, 409p. 23cm.
ISBN : 9781444336382.
190 BRU 133422
Philosophers don-t just make claims, they give arguments.
Does the existence of evil call into doubt the existence
of God? Show me the argument. Will living a just life
lead to happiness? Show me the argument. Philosophy
starts with questions, but attempts at answers are just
as important, and these answers require reasoned
argument. Cutting through notoriously dense and verbose
philosophical prose, in this book, the authors set 100
famous and influential arguments in context, including
key quotations, to explain the original style and
approach. Each argument is laid bare in its essential
form, with premises and conclusions plainly identified
and the form of argument specified.

Towards cultural psychology of religion : principles,

Springer, 2010.
xiv, 282p. 23cm.
ISBN : 9789048134908.
200.19 BEL 133309
This book takes a bold stand: all psychology should be
culturally sensitive psychology, especially when studying
religious phenomena. It explains that culture is not
simply to be conceived of as a variable that possibly
influences behavior. Rather, it stresses that cultural
patterns of acting, thinking and experiencing are
created, adopted and promulgated by a number of
individuals jointly. As human subjectivity is different
in different cultures, cultural psychology is not
interested in comparatively investigating how experiences
and behavior, attitudes and social relationships present
themselves within different cultural conditions.

The price of precaution and the ethics of risk /
Christian Munthe.-- Dordrecht: Springer, 2011.
xi, 189p. 24cm.
(The international library of ethics, law and technology
ISBN : 9789400713291.
302.12 MUN 133425
In this book, the author undertakes an innovative, in-
depth philosophical analysis of what the idea of a
precautionary principle is and should be about. A novel
theory of the ethics of imposing risks is developed and
used as a foundation for defending the idea of precaution
in environmental and technological policy making against
its critics, while at the same time avoiding a number of
identified flaws. The theory is shown to have far-
reaching practical conclusions for areas such as bio-,
information- and nuclear technology, and global
environmental policy in areas such as climate change. The
author argues that, while the price we pay for precaution
must not be too high, we have to be prepared to pay it in
order to act ethically defensible.

Migration is at the heart of Asian history. This
informative book crosses a vast terrain, from the Middle
East to India and China, tracing the history of modern
migration against the background of empires, their
dissolution, and the onset of modernity. Animated by the
voices of Asian migrants, it tells the stories of those
forced to flee form war and revolution, and those who
left their homes and their families in search of a better
life. These stories of Asian diasporas can be joyful or
poignant, but they all speak of engagement with new
landscapes and new peoples.

This book draws upon the wealth of experience in the
Academy of Urbanism. This edition deals with the subject
of urban identity and character. Why is it that all
modern towns and cities look the same, as they become
dominated by identikit buildings, multi-national
corporations, even arbitrarily imposed urban design
rules? How can we preserve and foster the sense of local
identity and character that so value without falling into
the trap of historical pastiche?

The 2008 financial crisis hit the heart of capitalism,
but the effects were much weaker in the -periphery- of
the capitalist system than in its center. This book
provides a solution to this paradox. The analysis
presented here shows that current account surpluses and
accumulation of foreign reserves are important for
developing countries because they allow them to conduct
anti-cyclical policies in the face of a financial crisis
in developed countries. Stabilization of output is
important for robust growth in the long term due to its
effects over capitalist animal spirits. Developed
countries should never pursue a growth strategy based
merely on accumulation of -foreign savings-.

This book is an investigation into the causes of the most
savage economic downturn experienced since the Great
Depression. Employing wide and divergent perspectives -
which are themselves critically examined - this study
analyses the measures that have been taken to restore our
economies to acceptable rates of unemployment and growth.
This book brings together economists, all of whom are
from outside the mainstream and who collectively
represent the broadest range of views from across the
entire spectrum of economic opinion, to examine what has
been learnt from this experience. With the advent of this
challenging new work, these alternative perspectives
should now receive a far closer examination given the
unmistakable economic failures endured over the past few

concept of global knowledge workers from a number of
different perspectives, including personal and academic
life trajectories. They reveal that the relational
framework of the three dimensions of analysis (macro-meso

knowledge workers, as expertise and specialized knowledge
and its innovative application, together with the
attraction and retention of talent remain key topics in
the current socioeconomic conditions.

This book brings together the most prominent thought
leaders and the best research on the asymmetric entrant-
incumbent dynamics. The ideas presented offer a more
nuanced perspective on how, when, where and with what
consequences small, single-product firms enter markets
that are dominated by large, multiproduct and multimarket
incumbents. Large enterprises often enjoy a number of
advantages that young, small ventures (as well as
matured, but still small firms) lack. These differences
manifest not only in how large and small firms operate
and in their resource-capability mix, but also in how
they compete and interact with each other. Research on
general market entry and competitive dynamics is
extensive yet it focuses on entrants and incumbents that
are of similar profile - similar size, comparable asset
mixes, related product strategies, and equivalent
organizational capabilities.

This book explains how the equilibrium manifold approach
can be usefully applied to the general equilibrium model,
from basic consumer theory and exchange economies to
models with private ownership of production. The author
examines properties of the standard general equilibrium
model that are beyond traditional existence and
optimality. He applies the theory of smooth manifolds and
mappings to the multiplicity of equilibrium solutions and
related discontinuities of market prices. The economic
concepts and differential topology methods presented in
this book are accessible, clear, and relevant, and no
prior knowledge of economic theory is necessary.

The 2008-10 financial crisis and the global recession it
created is a complex phenomenon that warrants detailed
examination. The various essays in this book utilise
several alternative paradigms to provide a plausible
explanation and a credible cure. Great detail is given to
this important analysis from different theoretical
perspectives, presenting a clearer understanding of what
went wrong and expounding misinterpretations of current
theories and practices. Fourteen insightful chapters by
eminent scholars investigate the background of the crisis
and draw lessons for economic theory and policy. They
largely illustrate that the roots of the recession lie in
the financial sector which, over the past few decades,
has expanded considerably in terms of both size and

The globalization of capital markets since the 1980s has
been accompanied by a vigorous debate over the
convergence of corporate governance standards around the
world towards the shareholder model. But even before the
financial and economic crisis of 2008/2009, the dominance
of the shareholder model was challenged with regard to
persisting divergences and national differences in
corporate law, labor law and industrial relations. This
book explores this debate at an important crossroads,
echoing Karl Polanyi-s famous observation in 1944 of the
disembeddedness of the market from society.

This book explores the place of poor people within a rich
variety of value chains, focusing upon lagging, rural
regions in Africa and Asia, and how they can -upgrade-
within such chains. Upgrading is a key concept for value
chain analysis and refers to the acquisition of
technological capabilities and market linkages that
enable firms to improve their competitiveness and move
into higher-value activities. The authors examine a range
of evidence to assess whether the -bottom billion-
people, living mainly in the rural areas of low-income
countries, can improve their position through productive
strategies and, if so, how? They propose an innovative
conceptual framework of value chain upgrading for some of
the most marginal producers in the poorest local

Cyber law is a term that encapsulates the legal issues
related to the use of communicative, transactional, and
distributive aspects of networked information devices and
technologies. It is less a distinct field of law in the
way that property or contract are, as it is a domain
covering many areas of law and regulation. Some leading
topics include intellectual property, privacy, freedom of
expression, and jurisdiction. Issues of jurisdiction and
sovereignty have quickly come to the fore in the era of
the Internet. This book provides deep insight into
various dimensions of issues relating to the subject.

This book is to comprehensively take on the climate
science denial movement and the deniers themselves,
exposing their lack of credentials, their extensive
industry funding, and their failure to provide any
alternative theory to explain the observed evidence of
warming. In this book, readers meet the most prominent
deniers while dissecting their credentials, arguments,
and lack of objectivity. The author shows that the
deniers use a wide variety of deceptive rhetorical
techniques, many stretching back to ancient Greece.
Carefully researched, fully referenced, and compellingly
written, his book clearly reveals that the evidence of
global warming is real and that an industry of denial has
deceived the American public, putting them and their
grandchildren at risk.

This book demonstrates that universities are subject to
fundamental change, evolving from science-based,
monodisciplinary institutions into transfunctional,
-international know-how hubs- named -third generation
universities- or 3GUs. The author explores the
combination of forces that propel this dramatic change,
tracing the historic development of universities, and
exploring the technology-based enterprises, techno
starters and financiers for start-ups and young
enterprises that are the main partners of these 3GUs. He
goes on to illustrate that universities play a new role
as incubators of new science- or technology-based
enterprises and take an active role in the exploitation
of the knowledge they create. This book concludes with
suggestions regarding the way in which changes in the
university-s mission should be reflected in subsequent
organizational changes.

This book identifies frequently used key arguments in

will unmask them as myths. Be it that management is
rational, be it that organizations are gender-neutral, be
it that women will change technology, will be shown to be
a set of superficial declarations not withstanding
critical scrutiny. All the "reasons" for gender-specific
organizational phenomena will be proved to exist simply
to maintain power structures and thereby systematically
(but subtly) reproduce dominant organizational cultures
and stabilize taken-for-granted knowledge in particular
with respect to gender issues.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of an
emerging and growing stream of research in strategic
management. An international team of scholars has been
assembled to produce a systematic introduction to the
various epistemological, methodological and theoretical
aspects of the strategy-as-practice approach. This
perspective explores and explains the contribution that
strategizing makes to daily operations at all levels of
an organization. Moving away from a disembodied and a
social study of firm assets, technologies and practices,
the strategy-as-practice approach breaks down many of the
traditional paradigmatic boundaries in strategy to
investigate who the strategists are, what strategists do,
how they do it, and what the consequences or outcomes of
their actions are.

resources. The authors explain the pros and cons of
existing approaches to implementation as well as offering
a systematic framework for turning strategic intent into
actions. They offer a fresh look at a subject whose
importance within academia and industry is rapidly
increasing due to the need to refocus the attention of
business upon the elements that actually add value to
society - operations.
