This book describes in-depth qualitative interviewing
from underlying philosophy and assumptions to project
design, analysis and write up. In responsive
interviewing, the stages of research-design, data
gathering, and analysis-are intimately linked.
Researchers perform analysis throughout their projects,
not just at the end, so that as they learn more, they can
modify both the research problem they are exploring and
the questions they ask. The book assumes no prior
knowledge or experience, and the author-s tone is

The book provides comprehensive guidelines for
determining an accurate ROI before the project has
progressed to the point where it-s over budget and over-
run. It applies an iterative approach to the entire
project management life cycle that re-visits the ROI, re-
assesses the value delivered, defines the project scope,
and allows the project to be planned as successive
iterations based on the value delivered. This book
details a systematic and simplified approach for
effectively and efficiently selecting and evaluating IT
projects for your organization. Filled with equations,
tables, and figures that facilitate understanding, it
explains how to evaluate subsequent success of a project
so that it is simpler to manage, more efficient, and
yields the ROI estimated at the outset.

counseling, school) and non-applied areas. Organized by
three developmental phases in a student-s graduate
career, it deals with issues related to Settling In to
life as a graduate student, developing and Maturing and
issues of Winding Down and Gearing Up (all at the same
time), that time in graduate training when students are

This book shows how business ethics grovels before

critical voice of American capitalist economy. The
individual-s treatment in corporate life is revealed
through the eyes of Protestant culture and its coercive
work tradition where efficiency value usurps values of
individual freedoms. The theory of Business Ethics
provides the moral guideline and standards for corporate
life and concrete business organizations apply those
standards to practice. The author discloses how
contemporary business ethics grovels before corporations,
how it is too weak to create a truly critical voice of
American capitalist economy. This book suggests a new
concept of an out-corporate individual.

and for combining a respect for nationalism with an

The book shows how an understanding of methodology allows
us to design research so that findings can be used to
answer interesting research questions and to build and
test theories. Most important things in social research
(e.g., beliefs, institutions, interests, practices and
social classes) cannot be observed directly. This book
explains how empirical research can nevertheless be
designed to make sound inferences about their nature,
effects and significance. The authors examine what counts
as good description, explanation and interpretation, and
how they can be achieved by striking intelligent trade-
offs between competing design virtues.

question, "What do these ideas tell us about the basic
forces that shape the social world?" Posing this question
for each theorist adds a unique perspective to the text
and distinguishes it from other sociological theory
books. In addition, it also includes material on the
enduring models and principles of the theorists- work

of the impact of decentralization on the delivery of
social services at the local level within India.
Supplementing national and state-level data and analyzing
the different historical legacies in each state, the book
argues that decentralization is not simply a function of
the structure of the decentralization program or of the

The book offers a fascinating new interpretation of
imperialism and environmental change, revealing the
anxieties imperialism generated through environmental
transformation and interaction with unknown landscapes.
Demonstrating that systematic deforestation accompanied
anxieties about human-induced climate change, soil
erosion, and a looming timber famine, the book
illuminates colonial fears about the power of
environments - and environmental change - to affect
health. It examines colonial concerns about the ugliness
of urban environments and attempts at improving their
appearance, but it also argues that some of the
conservation policies and bureaucracies that resulted
from expressions of environmental anxiety represented a
form of imperial control designed to generate revenue and
to enable the more efficient exploitation of resources.

This book identifies what makes a good tax system for an
open developed economy in the 21st century and suggests
how the UK tax system could be reformed to move in that
direction. The recommendations stress the importance of
neutrality and transparency in tax design. It draws on
the expert evidence from the commissioned chapters and
commentaries in Dimensions of Tax Design. It also
acknowledges the growing importance of globalised markets

xv, 275p. 22cm.
ISBN : 9780230298408.
336.3435 CHO 134652
The book is about sovereign debt, fiscal deficits, the
newly poor and the deceit of the State Supermarket. The
issues confronting the global economy, particularly the
USA, Europe and Japan, are inseparable from the current
lack of social and political leadership as well as of a
credible plan to deal with the mountains of debt amassed
by sovereign states, households and companies,
particularly banks. The many practical examples in the
book expose the situation into which western society has
cornered itself. It offers advice on how to rise up from
this, even if it means slaughtering unaffordable
endowments, unwarranted government rescues, and other
proliferating but unsustainable big spending projects.
The book considers the risks of losing sight of past
failures, and society-s ability to solve its problems,
with debt heading the list.

This book provides a critical assessment of the

achieve food security for the world-s population. A key
aspect of this failure is identified in the neoliberal
strategies which emphasis industrial efficiencies,
commodity production and free trade-ideologies that
underlie agricultural and food policies in what are
frequently referred to as -developed countries-. This
book examines both the contradictions in the global food

on the economic behavior of individuals or firms using
regression methods for cross section and panel data. The
book is oriented to the practitioner. A basic
understanding of the linear regression model with matrix
algebra is assumed. The text can be used for a
microeconometrics course, typically a second-year
economics PhD course, for data-oriented applied
microeconometrics field courses, and as a reference work
for graduate students and applied researchers who wish to
fill in gaps in their toolkit. Distinguishing features of
the book include emphasis on nonlinear models and robust

This book deals with the increasingly complex issues of
hybrid environmental and economic accounts. The
perspective of environmental accounting for the analysis
of the relationships between the economic and
environmental systems, especially regarding the satellite
accounts like NAMEA, is relatively recent, and partly
derives from the conceptual and applied deficits that
have emerged during the setting up of green GDP or GNP
measures as alternative measures of accounting. This book
is an integrated collection of complementary papers that
revolve around the issue of environment-economic
accounting. It deals with historical background and
empirical issues related to the NAMEA-type table
definitions and estimations and opens the window to
international case studies for different EU countries and
studies with methodological insights.

The unique contribution of the book is its spotlight on
how knowledge of consumer psychology principles can be
used to improve managerial decision making and
organizational performance. Research on consumer behavior
typically has a narrow focus and does not offer reliable
and practical direction for marketers. Taken
collectively, however, the conclusions of research
streams can provide valuable information from which
managers can base their decisions. The book contains
systematic, prescriptive advice based on state-of-the-art
knowledge from multiple research lines regarding how
consumers think and choose. The chapters cover
fundamental topics such as new product management,
marketing mix strategy, marketing communications and
advertising, social media, and experimental marketing.
