The book offers an overview of the analysis of identity
in the social sciences, and seeks to develop a new agenda
for identity-studies in the twenty-first century. The key
theories of identity, ranging from classical accounts to
postmodern, psychoanalytic and feminist approaches, are
drawn together and critically appraised, and there are
substantive sections looking at racial, ethnic, gendered,
queer, consumerist, virtual and global identities. The
Handbook also makes an essential contribution to the
debate now opening up over identity-politics and its
cultural consequences. From anti-globalization protestors
to new ecological warriors, from devotees of therapy
culture to defenders of international human rights: the
culture of identity-politics is fast redefining the
public political sphere.

This book provides an in-depth psychological analysis of
consumerism that draws from a wide range of theoretical,
clinical, and methodological approaches. The contributors
demonstrate that consumerism and the culture that
surrounds it exert profound and often undesirable effects
on both people-s individual lives and on society as a
whole. Authors address consumerism-s effect on everything
from culture, ethnicity, and childhood development to
consciousness, gender roles, identity, work stress, and
psychopathology. Contributors provide a variety of
potential interventions for counteracting the negative
influence of consumerism on individuals and on society.
The book makes a strong case that, despite psychology-s
past reticence to investigate issues related to
consumerism, such topics are crucial to understanding
human life in the contemporary age.

empirical research such as the Phillips curve, the
Kuznets curve and the Lorenz curve. Each entry presents
an accurate and concise record of the history of the
figure or diagram, including later developments and any
controversy that arose in its development. The book
highlights how the use of geometric methods has played a
central part in the development of economic theory and
analysis, as a method of discovery, more commonly as a

This book explores the precarious margins of contemporary
labor markets. Over the last few decades, there has been
much discussion of a shift from full-time permanent jobs
to higher levels of part-time and temporary employment
and self-employment. Despite such attention, regulatory
approaches have not adapted accordingly. Instead, in the
absence of genuine alternatives, old regulatory models
are applied to new labor market realities, leaving the
most precarious forms of employment intact. The book
places this disjuncture in historical context and focuses
on its implications for workers most likely to be at the
margins, particularly women and migrants, using
illustrations from Australia, the United States, and
Canada, as well as member states of the European Union.

The approach of this book is to teach monetary economics
using the classical paradigm of rational agents in a
market setting. Too often monetary economics has been
taught as a collection of facts about existing
institutions for students to memorize. By teaching from
first principles instead, the authors aim to instruct
students not only in the monetary policies and
institutions that exist today in the United States and
Canada, but also in what policies and institutions may or
should exist tomorrow and elsewhere. The text builds on a
simple, clear monetary model and applies this framework
consistently to a wide variety of monetary questions.

This book proposes new methods to value equity and model
the Markowitz efficient frontier using Markov switching
models. In particular, the book proposes that there are
substantial differences between -bull- and -bear- market
efficient portfolios that need to be taken into account
when building diversified portfolios. Also, the book
proposes a new concept of persistence that may be used to
define and better understand the concept of nonlinear
co integration. The book reviews the recent developments
of using fractional integrated models to model stock
market volatility and suggests a new explanation for the
persistence observed in share prices and their associated
returns. The book develops a new procedure that involves
using the bootstrap to build vector error correction
models and as an application, investigates the nonlinear
relationship between oil and stock markets, respectively.

responses to the need to resolve the tension between

ecological economics, green economics, and anti-
capitalist economics. Part three is structured around key
themes including an introduction to economic instruments
such as taxes and regulation, pollution and resource

implemented with cooperative policy in other countries,
could significantly reduce global emissions. The book is

This book discusses the author-s experiences with
National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and its impact
on the environmental protection. It deals with an ethical
position about the environment, and the law required some
level of accountability in the form of an environmental
impact statement, or EIS. According to author EIS mean
that the analysts did more than adequate job of measuring
impacts on cultural artifacts. After forty years of
thinking about and working with NEPA and the EIS process,
Greenberg decided to conduct his own evaluation from the
perspective of a person trained in science that focuses
on environmental and environmental health policies. This
book of carefully chosen real case studies goes beyond
the familiar checklists of what to do, and shows students
and practitioners alike what really happens during the
creation and implementation of an EIS.

This book is aimed at articulating appropriate structural
and policy measures for eliminating the constraints that
African countries face and thus ensuring that they can
derive maximum benefits from all available market access
opportunities. There is evidence that most African
countries face external market access barriers in their
major export destinations which are generally less
constraining than those confronting countries in other
developing country regions. Yet, they have generally not
been able to take full advantage of the special
(preferential) market access opportunities available to
them. This suggests that improved external market access,
whether reciprocal or preferential, would not, by itself,
be sufficient for strengthening African export
