This book describes the impact of information technology
in library and information services. For the libraries,
ICT-s has tremendously changed the management of
resources as well as the way services are delivered.
While general IT application tools and integrated library
management systems are largely used in housekeeping
operations, like acquisition, cataloguing, circulation
control, serials control etc, internet has been used
extensively as a resource as well as a tool to deliver
the Library and Information Services (LIS). In the
specific context of LIS, one of the implications of use
of ICT is that Libraries can reach out globally to
provide their services 24-hours a day in very cost
effective manner. ICT has enabled users to avail many
services without any human intervention, the role of the
role of LIS professional is changing from an intermediary
to a facilitator and enabler.

Library Classification is a system of coding and
organizing library materials according to their subject
and allocating a call number to that information
resource. Similar to classification systems used in
biology, bibliographic classification systems group
entities that are similar together typically arranged in
a hierarchical tree structure. This book attempts to
provide a detailed story of the impacts of information
technology in library classification and also the latest
developments that have been made in this area.
Introducing the nature and purposes of library
classification, the book discusses in detail the canons,
principles and laws, which evaluate a scheme of
classification. The book is ideally suited to students
and researchers of library and information science and
library professionals alike.

Epistemology in classical India : the knowledge sources
of the Nyaya school / Stephen Phillips.-- New York:
Routledge, 2012.
x, 194p. 24cm.
ISBN : 9780415895545.
121.0954 PHI 134680
In this book, the author gives an overview of the
contribution of Nyaya--the classical Indian school that
defends an externalist position about knowledge as well
as an internality position about justification. Nyaya
literature extends almost two thousand years and
comprises hundreds of texts, and in this book, Phillips
presents a useful overview of the under-studied system of
thought. For the philosopher rather than the scholar of
Sanskrit, the book makes a whole range of Nyaya positions
and arguments accessible to students of epistemology who
are unfamiliar with classical Indian systems.

the author accounts for the renewed interest in the
humanist idea provoked by Hegel and others in the early
nineteenth century. The second section follows the
various strands humanism followed in the twentieth
century, including scientific humanism, pragmatism,
religious and Christian humanism, and the humanism of the
European thinkers. The third section traces the story of
humanism in India, China, the Near East, and Africa.
Cooke finishes the book with a survey of humanist thought
on the environment, tackling the thorny issue of humanism
and species ism. He then looks at the prospects for a
genuine planetary humanism, examining the thoughts of
John Rawls, Kwame Anthony Appiah, and Paul Kurtz, among

The articles collected here are foundational
contributions to integrating behavioral research and risk
analysis. They include seminal articles on three
essential challenges. One is ensuring effective two-way
communication between technical experts and the lay
public, so that risk analyses address lay concerns and
provide useful information to people who need it. The
second is ensuring that analyses make realistic
assumptions about human behaviors that affect risk
levels. The third is ensuring that analyses recognize the
strengths and weaknesses of experts- understanding, using
experts- knowledge, while understanding its limits. The
articles include overviews of the science, essays on the
role of risk in society, and applications to domains as
diverse as environment, medicine, terrorism, human
rights, chemicals, pandemics, vaccination, HIV/AIDS,
sexual assault, energy, and climate change.

analysis do and do not prove useful when applied beyond
the original focus of their "most similar systems" design
and the West European and North American cases it
encompassed. It is intended both to use a wider range of
cases to interrogate and clarify the conceptual framework
of Comparing Media Systems and to proposed new middles,
concepts, and with processes of political transition. The
book covers, among other cases, Brazil, China, Isreal,
Lebanon, Poland, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and

303.40954 AIE 133244
The book deals social changes in Indian society.
Modernization is a composite concept. It is also an
ideological concept. The models of modernization co-vary
with the choice of ideologies. The composite nature of
this concept renders it pervasive in the vocabulary of
social sciences and evokes its kinship with concepts like
development, growth, evolution and progress. The book
analyses the varied and complex processes involved in the
modernization of India, the forces released by it and
their bearing on the stability, creativity and
development in India as a dynamic nation and composite
civilization. This book provides deep insight into
various dimensions of issues relating to the subject.

This book responds to the growing need for an inter-
disciplinary re-assessment of Tribal studies in
postcolonial India and defines a new agenda for Adivasi
studies. It considers the existing conceptual and
historical parameters of Tribal studies, as a means of
addressing new approaches to histories of de-colonization
and patterns of identity-formation that have become
visible since national independence. Contributors address
a number of important concerns, including the meaning of
Indigenous studies in the context of globalised academic
and political imaginaries, and the possibilities and
pitfalls of constructions of indigeneity as both a
foundational and a relational concept. A series of short
editorial essays provide theoretical clarity to issues of
representation, resistance, agency, recognition and

Presenting a framework that incorporates macro-level
forces into micro-level strategic calculations, this book
explains key political choices by leaders and challengers
in Pakistan through the political survival mechanism. It
offers an explanation for continuing polity weakness in
the country, and describes how political survival shapes
the choices made by the leaders and challengers. Using a
unique analysis that synthesizes theories of weak states,
quasi-states and political survival, the book extends
beyond rationalist accounts and the application of choice
theoretical approaches to developing countries. It
challenges the focus on ideology and suggests that
diverse, religiously and ethnically-defined affinity
groups have interests that are represented in particular
ways in weak state circumstances.

the theoretical and ideological themes that have
dominated the study of the region-s politics and presents
the different ways the complex politics of the region
have been understood. The handbook analyses how the
dominant political and social coalitions of the region
were forged in the Cold War era, and assesses the complex
processes of transition towards various forms of
democratic politics. How institutions and systems of
governance are being forged in an increasingly global
environment is discussed and whether civil society in

This book examines the upsurge in mass popular protest
against undemocratic regimes. Relating early revolutions
to recent global trends and protests, it examines the
significance of -people power- to democracy. The author
assesses the influence on people power of global politics
and trends, such as the growth of international
governmental organizations and international law, citizen
networks operating across borders, and emerging media
(like Twitter and Wikileaks). Drawing from contemporary
debates about democratization and literatures on power,
violence and nonviolence, from both academic sources and
media perspectives, this text builds an incisive
analytical argument about the changing nature of power
itself. The book is a must read for students and scholars
of democratic theory, international politics and current

vii, 260p. 24cm.
ISBN : 9780748639434.
325.3 BIG 134686
This book complements and balances the attention given by
postcolonial theory to the revitalization and recognition
of the agency of colonized peoples. It offers new
conceptual scaffolding to those who have inherited the
legacy of colonial privilege, and who now seek to
responsibly transform this historical injustice. Simone
Bignall attends to a minor tradition within Western
philosophy including Spinoza, Nietzsche, Bergson and
Deleuze, to argue that a non-imperial concept of social
and political agency and a postcolonial philosophy of
material transformation are embedded within aspects of
poststructuralist social philosophy. Beginning with a
critical treatment of the dialectical notions that
dominate much postcolonial theory, Bignall then outlines
a constructive and transformative theory of practice by
drawing from Foucault and Deleuze.

The book explores the complexities of the role human
rights played in US-Soviet relations during the 1970s and
1980s. It will show how private citizens exploited the
larger effects of contemporary globalization and the
language of the Final Act to enlist the US government in
a global campaign against Soviet/Eastern European human
rights violations. A careful examination of this
development shows the limitations of existing literature
on the Reagan and Carter administrations- efforts to
promote internal reform in USSR. It also reveals how the
Carter administration and private citizens, not Western
European governments, played the most important role in
making the issue of human rights a fundamental aspect of
Cold War competition.

Game theory, the formalized study of strategy, began in
the 1940s by asking how emotionless geniuses should play
games, but ignored until recently how average people with
emotions and limited foresight actually play games. This
book marks the first substantial and authoritative effort
to close this gap. Behavioral game theory has three
ingredients that come clearly into focus in this book:
mathematical theories of how moral obligation and
vengeance affect the way people bargain and trust each
other, a theory of how limits in the brain constrain the
number of steps of "I think he thinks..." reasoning
people naturally do, and a theory of how people learn
from experience to make better strategic decisions.

This book takes on the challenge of interpreting and
about macroeconomic. The macroeconomic development of
most major industrial economies is characterized by boom-
bust cycles. Normally such boom-bust cycles are driven by
specific sectors of the economy. In the financial
meltdown of the years 2007-2009 it was the credit sector
and the real-estate sector that were the main driving
forces. In doing so it revives the traditional Keynesian
approach to the financial-real economy interaction and
the business cycle, extending it in several important
ways. In particular, it adopts the Keynesian view of a
hierarchy of markets and introduces a detailed financial
sector into the traditional Keynesian framework. The
approach of the book goes beyond the currently dominant
paradigm based on the representative agent, market
clearing and rational economic agents.

The financial crisis of 2007-2010 has presented a number
of key policy challenges for those concerned with the
long term stability of the euro area. It has shown that
price stability as provided by the European Central Bank
is not enough to guarantee financial stability, and
exposed fault lines in governance and deficiencies in the
architecture of the financial supervisory and regulatory
framework. This book addresses these and other issues,
including why the crisis affected some countries more
than others, whether the euro is still attractive for new
EU states, and what policy changes and structural
reforms, both macro and micro, should be undertaken to
ensure its future viability. Written by a team of leading
academic and central bank economists, the book also
includes chapters on the cross-country incidence of the
crisis, the Irish crisis and ECB monetary policy during
the crisis.

xix, 392p. 24cm.
ISBN : 9780521112710.
332.456094 STR 134657
This book analyzes for the first time the experience of
seven small states (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, the
Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and Switzerland) during the
last hundred years, starting with the restoration of the
gold standard after World War I and ending with Sweden-s
rejection of the Euro in 2003. The comparative analysis
shows that for the most part of the twentieth century the
options of policy makers were seriously constrained by a
distinct fear of floating exchange rates. Only with the
crisis of the European Monetary System (EMS) in 1992-93
did the idea that a flexible exchange rate regime was
suited for a small open economy gain currency. The book
also analyses the differences among small states and
concludes that economic structures or foreign policy
orientations were far more important for the timing of
regime changes than domestic institutions and policies.

for research, education and innovation in the development
strategies of the dynamic growth regions? What are the
risks and consequences of dynamic growth on patterns of
world growth and development, competitiveness,
inequalities, and convergence? What development
strategies should be promoted at national and
international levels to promote a growing and more

for the developments during this time has been

technologies and increased investments in diffusing
existing knowledge by means of education and thereby
raising the volume of human capital. However, many member

constitutionalism raises, both in the EU-s internal and

as the Court of Justice declared the primacy of EU law
not just over national constitutions but also over the
international legal order, including the UN Charter. The
book culminates in an interactive epilogue in which the
authors- arguments are questioned and challenged by the
editor, providing a unique and stimulating approach to
the subject. By bringing together leading constitutional
theorists of the European Union, this book offers a
sharp, challenging and engaging discussion for students

book suggests that there is an overarching condition of
global organic crisis, which shapes the political and
organizational responses of the dominant global
leadership and of various subaltern forces. Contributors
argue that to meaningfully address the challenges of the
global crisis will require far more effective, inclusive
and legitimate forms of global leadership and global
governance than have characterized the neoliberal era.

economic models of addiction. The model developed in most
detail takes into account both standard and behavioral
approaches. The next three chapters examine specific
indulgences: smoking, drinking, and overeating. The heart
of this book is its comprehensive discussion of what is
often referred to as the "new paternalism." As more and
more economists are arguing for policies that are
designed to protect people from themselves, this book
offers a serious, yet accessible, discussion of the pros
and cons of such interventions. Written in an
approachable style, this book will serve researchers who
are new to the economics of addiction and students in a

Climate change creates unprecedented problems of
intergenerational justice. Providing important new
insights within the theoretical framework of political
liberalism, the book presents arguments in three key
areas: Mitigation: the current generation ought to adopt
a strong precautionary principle in formulating climate
change policy in order to minimize the risks of serious
harm from climate change imposed on future generations.
Adaptation: the current generation ought to create a fund
to which members of future generations may apply for
compensation if the risks of climate change harm imposed
on them by the current generation ripen into harms.
Triage: future generations ought to keep alive hope for a
return to the framework of justice for the social
cooperation of future people less burdened by climate
change harms.

contradictions and recognize that we have been brought up

problems are the same. Not all can be solved, and the
remainder must be managed or coped with. In order to do
this, we have to develop the capacity within ourselves
and our organization to thrive on contradictions. To be

and tools, the authors explain how to reduce the risks
and develop loyalty and commitment within an
organization. In a difficult economic climate it is more
important than ever to manage bad behavior in the
workplace and minimize the damage negative and
destructive employees can have on an organization. If you
leave a rotten apple in a barrel of apples, the bacteria
destroying it will gradually spread throughout the whole

difficulties or is dishonest may influence others in the

Beyond Management explains why the tools, rules,
competition, and compliance favored by management are
actually disorganizing and cause breakdowns at work. It
also shows you how to replace out-dated practices with
new ones that empower knowledge workers. The systems and
structures that we call -management- are obsolete. They
were developed for smokestack factories, during the
industrial era. Devised for producing goods efficiently,
management practices are geared to solving technical,
left brain problems: the kind that occurs when production
is highly mechanized, work is repetitive, and people
labor in isolation. In smoke-free offices, 21st Century
knowledge workers organize themselves. Creative and
agile, they network or team to tackle complex, right-
brain problems by interacting and sharing information:
talking, texting, asking questions as they make decisions

The book makes clear links between what goes on in
society and what goes on in organizations. Why do women
still suffer from a lack of confidence and require
tailored leadership programmed when they have been
educated in the same way as men? Acknowledging and
understanding this wider context can help organizations
and their members move forward in their quest for more
inclusive cultures. This book explains why and sets out
what is needed to effect real change. The book is not
pessimistic, it is realistic. There has been a huge
increase in women in the workforce over the past forty
years. However for every advance there are new obstacles
to overcome. The current vogue for explaining away
women-s lack of power in organizations through
"differences" or -choice- fails women, and is a strong
example of the backlash that exists against the recent
inroads women have made in public life.

This book shows organizations how to understand and
improve their organizational networks, and explains how
different network models can be implemented that
encourage and promote flexibility within organizations.
If a company cannot adapt to changing environments in the
future, it will suffer and decline. The question is not
whether your company-s structure is suitable for the
needs of today, but whether it will still be suitable
tomorrow. Traditional company models are rigid and
designed for permanency, often making it difficult for
future growth and strategies to succeed. The key to
business success is flexibility, in structures,
relationships and communication. All companies are based
upon networks. These can be well connected or badly
connected, both internally in terms of people, processes,
workflows and strategies, and externally concerning the
market, customers and suppliers.

In this book the author assesses the global events and
developments that will have the greatest impact on our
lives including: repercussions from the financial crisis,
geopolitical power shifts, emerging technological
challenges, climate change, water and food shortages,
educational problems, demographic changes, war and
terrorism, disrupted energy supplies, declining
ecosystems health concerns, and increasing natural
disasters. Such Big Picture challenges confronting
humanity are clearly interrelated, yet experts tend to
treat each of them in isolation. This book, on the other
hand, takes the novel approach of joining-the-dots to
bring them into a single actionable framework. With all
of these daunting issues, it would be easy to take a
negative outlook, yet this book is not about pessimism.
Nor is it about optimism.

The approach to project management is too often
formulaic, describing what should be done and how to do
it, but not adequately describing why those actions are
important. The book outlines what and how of project
management, emphasizing why actions matter, the overall
intention of the formulaic steps, and the strengths or
weakness of various tools and techniques. Successful
project teams must understand and focus intently on what
the author describes as the eight essential habits of
successful project teams: nurture a shared vision of what
is to be accomplished, translate that vision into a
coherent set of performance specifications, have an
integrated plan for accomplishing the purpose, measure
their performance against the plan and their progress
toward the requirements, allow for uncertainty, manage
change, continually act to influence their future and
over communicate.

which can help improve the adaptive expertise needed for
design thinking. The final part of the book concerns
design thinking in information technology and its
relevance for business process modeling and agile

The book is about the company Herman Miller and a band of
people who determined to make their company a good global
citizen. The book tells the story from the point of view
of Murray and other people who made the changes. It does
not simply recount the story of a CEO who, by dint of
power, commanded a sea change in business. It instead
tells of researchers and designers and engineers and
factory bosses who made great things happen in back rooms
and on the factory floor. These people, across the ranks,
joined to advance a revolution. They reached new
insights, recast policies, changed behaviors, and
redesigned management. They also changed the people
around them-and they can change all of us.

that best-selling authors call the humanitarian leader.
Based on their groundbreaking research, the author traces
an inner path of seven critical choices. The path begins

Here the authors discuss the role women directors can
play in the reform of corporate governance systems
following recent financial, crises in leadership,
governance and the economy. The financial and economic
crisis and the public belief that failings in corporate
governance were partly to blame for it have politicized
the debate about how, and by whom, our companies should
be run. There is a new belief within the political
establishment that companies would be better run, and
less likely to act recklessly and so put the financial
system in jeopardy, if there were more women on their
Boards, and an expectation that companies will respond
appropriately when filling Board vacancies. In the
absence of an objective ex ante measure of the quality of
a company-s governance, the more gender-diverse board has
become an important symbol of the new, post-crisis

The book reflects Material Management and ERP (Enterprise

system designed to coordinate all the resources,
information and activities needed to complete business
processes such as order fulfillment or billing. An ERP
system supports most of the business system that
maintains in a single database the data needed for a
variety of business functions such as Manufacturing,
Supply Chain Management, Financials, Projects, Human
Resources and Customer Relationship Management. To be
considered an ERP system, a software package must provide
the function of at least two systems. For example, a
software package that provides both payroll and
accounting functions could technically be considered an
ERP software package. However, the term is typically
reserved for larger, more broadly based applications.

The book discusses retailing and the channel of
distribution of product. Retail consists of the sale of
goods or merchandise from a fixed location, such as
department store, boutique or kiosk, or by mail, in small
or individual lots for direct consumption by the
purchaser. Retailing may include subordinated services,
such as delivery. Purchasers may be individuals or
businesses. In commerce, a retailer buys goods or

have significant importance in tracing the history and
growth of social thoughts in India. This includes in its
scope some of the most important issues or problems of
the Indian society in terms of varna, caste,
untouchability, slavery, sanskar, ashramas, social status
of womenfolk, human relations among the people, marriage,
law, morality, religion and many other sociological
aspects of society, mostly related to Hindu society. This

values that have molded the life-styles or the ways of
social living in India.
