Individuals, firms, governments and nations behave
strategically, for good and bad. Over the last few
decades, game theory has been constructed and
progressively refined to become the major tool used by
social scientists to understand, predict and regulate
strategic interaction among agents who often have
conflicting interests. In the surprisingly anodyne jargon
of the theory, they -play games-. This book offers an
introduction to the basic tools of game theory and an
overview of a number of applications to real-world cases,
covering the areas of economics, politics and
international relations. Each chapter is accompanied by
some suggestions about further reading.

This book focuses on two important aspects of the
financial sector-development and access. Combining theory
with analytical rigour, the authors examine the level of
and changes in financial development and access in the
post-reform period. Using a macroeconomic growth
approach, financial development is looked at in terms of
the structure of the financial system, its size, reach,
and efficiency, and soundness of the banking sector.
Financial access is conceptualized as the supply of
financial resources for productive investment purposes.
Based on empirical assessment of disaggregate data at the
sectoral level, the authors suggest innovative solutions
to reduce risk and transaction costs in order to improve
financial access in the economy. They also compare
specific aspects of the Indian financial system with that
of the United Kingdom, Brazil, and China.

Regional cooperation in East Asia on various issue areas,
such as emergency liquidity mechanisms in finance, the
exponential growth of free trade agreements and policy
coordination on the environment and public health,
developed rapidly after the Asian Financial Crisis. A
decade later, the global financial crisis offered a new
opportunity for the nascent regional cooperation
mechanisms to acquire new depth and meaning - this time,
however, in a very different context due to the
unfaltering rise of China. This volume not only offers
one of the first assessments of how the global economic
crisis has affected the prospects for regional
integration in East Asia, but it also addresses a number
of long-standing debates of interest to East Asian
specialists, economists and policymakers.

inter-personal disputes in the Indian context. The work
also evaluates the role of various international
instruments and conventions including The Hague
Convention on private international law designed to
resolve international conflicts. The book also discusses

R by Example is an example-based introduction to the
statistical computing environment that does not assume
any previous familiarity with R or other software
packages. R functions are presented in the context of
interesting applications with real data. The purpose of
this book is to illustrate a range of statistical and
probability computations using R for people who are
learning, teaching, or using statistics. Specifically,
this book is written for users who have covered at least
the equivalent of (or are currently studying)
undergraduate level calculus-based courses in statistics.
These users are learning or applying exploratory and
inferential methods for analyzing data and this book is
intended to be a useful resource for learning how to
implement these procedures in R.

Missing data form a problem in every scientific
discipline, yet the techniques required to handle them
are complicated and often lacking. One of the great ideas
in statistical science-multiple imputation-fills gaps in
the data with plausible values, the uncertainty of which
is coded in the data itself. It also solves other
problems, many of which are missing data problems in
disguise. Flexible Imputation of Missing Data is supported
by many examples using real data taken from the author-s
vast experience of collaborative research, and presents a
practical guide for handling missing data under the
framework of multiple imputation. This graduate-tested
book avoids mathematical and technical details as much as
possible: formulas are accompanied by a verbal statement
that explains the formula in layperson terms.

Many people link memorable keynote speeches to changes in
their research, practice, career path or even life view.
Good keynote speeches are a forthright statement of the
expert-s view and thus are often not published. Now that
HRD is maturing there is a need to recapture some of
those earlier moments - both as a form of archive, and
also to shed light on the path that has been
followed. Twenty-two speeches seminal to the field of HRD
are included in this volume. These speeches are
milestones along the path of the development of the field
as well as reconstructing their speech, the contributors
have also located it within the time it was given and
commented on how the field has developed since. This book
is a resource, not only as an archive and for those who
wish to relive their pivotal moments, but also for anyone
interested in the development of HRD as a discipline.

There are many strategy books available in the

most of them view strategy from the 10,000 foot level,
while Strategic Thinking looks at this important business
topic through a different lens. Written from the
perspective of a manager, this book builds on theories of
managerial and organizational cognition that have had a
powerful influence on many business fields over the last
two decades. As other books on business policy and
strategy cover a broad range of topics, models,
frameworks, and theories, the unique feature of this book
is that it covers all this, but also focuses on how
managers of business firms understand their business
environments, assess and marshal their firms- resources,
and strive for advantage in the competitive marketplace.
