Riots and After in Mumbai provides a synoptic record of
events in Mumbai, focusing essentially on the history of
riots in the city. Using this framework, it attempts to
understand the sociopolitical and cultural realities of
present-day Mumbai through a collection of narratives of
the people affected by the communal riots of 1992-93. The
author uses a novel approach, combining historical
records from the pre-Independence era (1893-1945) and
personal interviews of both Muslims and Hindus living in
the city. It also looks into the political manipulations
that ordinary people of both communities alike are
subjected to by the ruling powers and political parties.
This book will help the reader form a bridge between the
Mumbai-s past and present in order to better understand
the relations between the two communities.

ISBN : 9781850437987.

The period between the wars was a watershed for the
Labour Party as it transformed from a failed alternative
to the Conservatives to a majority party of government.
After a slow build-up, it went on to win a landslide
victory that brought in the Attlee government of 1945.
Labour inside the Gate is the first study dedicated to
this period in Labour-s development. In this
comprehensive history, Worley examines the parliamentary
Labour Party and the growing network of constituency
parties. He explores Labour-s shifting identity at a
national and local level and the evolution of a party
policy that would drive the historic Attlee government
into office.

Economic geography / William P Anderson.-- London:
Routledge, 2012.
xvi, 383p. 23cm.
ISBN : 9780415701204.
330.9 AND 135804
The goal of this book is to provide the student with a
rigorous introduction to a diverse but logically
consistent set of analytical models of the spatial
decisions and interactions that drive the evolution of
the economic landscape. The book begins by explaining
fundamental concepts that are critical to all topics in
economic geography: the friction of distance,
agglomeration, spatial interaction, market mechanisms,
natural resources and production technologies. The
following sections cover major areas of inquiry including
multiregional economies, location theory, markets for
space and systems of cities. The final section
synthesizes and builds on these topics to address two
trends that provide particular challenges to economic
geographers today: globalization and the emergence of the
knowledge economy.

International business in China : understanding the
global economic crisis / Robert Taylor.-- London:
Routledge, 2012.
viii, 143p. 25cm.
ISBN : 9780415674836.
330.951 TAY 135793
This book deals with a number of contentious issues in
Chinese management as China emerges as a global economic
player, with a greater role in international business
during a global economic crisis. This step is in tandem
with an economically driven foreign policy. Since the
1980s, Chinese management while still in transition, has
benefited from an infusion of capital, technology and
managerial expertise through inward direct investment via
joint and wholly-owned foreign ventures. The creation of
a knowledge economy, in addition to outward investment in
manufacturing, could lead to a distinctive independent
style of Chinese management. Simultaneously, China-s
participation in intra-regional trade underlines the
nation-s role in Asian regional business networks. Such
developments in turn present a challenge to Western and
global business.

Labour market flexibility and pension reforms : flexible
today, secure tomorrow? / Karl Hinrichs and Matteo
Jessoula.-- New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2012.
xviii,262p. 22cm.
ISBN : 9780230290068.
331.12 HIN 135777
Increasingly flexible labour markets and reforms of old-
age pension systems are still ranking high on the
political agenda of European countries. This volume
investigates whether, and to what extent, the interplay
between pension reforms and the spread of -atypical-
employment patterns and fragmented careers has a negative
influence uponeconomic security in old age. The volume,
therefore, analyzes the flexibility-security nexus by
focusing on the post-retirement phase, thus extending the
conventional narrow concept of -flexicurity-. The book
also questions whether reforms of public and private
pension schemes compensate or aggravate the risks of
increasingly flexible labor markets and atypical
employment careers after retirement?

in these studies are the mechanisms leading to the
statistical regularities ("stylized facts") of price
statistics. Results pertaining to other important issues
such as market impact, the profitability of trading
strategies, or mathematical models for microstructure
effects, are also presented. Several leading researchers
in these fields report on their recent work and also
review the contemporary literature. Some historical
perspectives, comments and debates on recent issues in
Econophysics research are also included.

Banking on Self-help Groups reviews the existing state of
affairs in respect of the SHG (Self-help Group) movement
and addresses the question of what should be the next
phase of development of the SHGs. It identifies the
policy gaps and opportunities that exist for the SHGs to
be mainstreamed further into the formal financial system.
The author examines elements of strategy and design being
adopted by the National Rural Livelihoods Mission as also
the potential role of NABARD in the development of SHGs
in the future. The study focuses on three core issues
pertaining to SHGs. The book concludes with a discussion
of proposals and institutional arrangements that provide
the way forward for the continued and uninterrupted
growth of SHGs as an agency for change in the rural
sector of India.

This book examines the opportunities opened up for
financial cooperatives by the recent financial crisis,
and explores the role of these institutions in promoting
and sustaining local development. The global financial
crisis has not only shown the limits of the mainstream
theory of markets and rational expectations, but has also
generated a great deal of disillusionment with the
banking system and underlined the importance of a healthy
society for the welfare of the individual. Consequently,
new and innovative ways of providing finance are needed,
especially for strengthening the development of local

Geoff Pilling-s work shows that Marxist theory is
relevant to those struggling to understand the problems
of capitalist society today, and that the work not only
of Marx and Engels but that of later Marxist theorists,
including Lenin is worth studying. It also shows that to
understand the problems of today-s society needs more
than narrow specialist economic analysis, but a deep
awareness of current developments in society.

Many African countries are increasingly interested in
learning from China-s experiences in achieving effective
agricultural development. The Chinese government and
academic community are also keen to share experiences and
lessons with Africa. The book highlights experiences and
lessons from China and, in particular, analyzes why
Africa has not yet been able to emulate China-s
agricultural development trajectory. It compares the
similarities and discrepancies in conditions, processes,
and outcomes between China and Africa from the
perspectives of investment, science and technology,
policies and international development aid. Based on this
it explores which experiences and lessons from China-s
agriculture development can be shared with African
countries in order to contribute to the sustainable
improvement and transformation of African agriculture.

Why have some countries succeeded at the task of economic
development, while others have failed dismally? Designed
to address this question - to explain the persistence and
even widening of the gap between both rich and poor
countries, and rich and poor within poor countries - this
anthology draws upon classic as well as current
literature. Students should find conventional
explanations based on theories of modernisation and
culture, revisionist explanations focusing on dependency
and world-systems analysis, and the most recent
literature on rent-seeking, markets and states. Empirical
evidence evaluates the success of the contending theories
presented, case studies are also included. The final
chapter draws conclusions about where development theory
has been and where it is going.

This book is designed for those scholars, students,
policy makers - or just curious readers - who are looking
for heterodox thinking on the issue of environmental
economics and policy. Contributions to this book draw on
multiple streams of institutional and evolutionary
economics and help build an approach to environmental
policy that radically diverges from mainstream
prescriptions. Institutions and technologies - and not
only markets - are at the heart of a systemic and dynamic
analysis of those structural changes which are needed to
create a sustainable economy. Actors for change - and
their ability to influence politics and policy - are
explicitly taken into consideration. These issues are
analyzed from different viewpoints by contributors to the
book: some focus on behavior and institutions, others
analyze the interaction of economic and technological

The book analyzes export consortia from the strategic
management perspective. It builds on an empirical
analysis of nine export consortia promoted by UNIDO in
developing countries between 2004 and 2007. The book is
based heavily on actual export consortium experiences, in
order to combine a rigorous research approach with a more
pragmatic view of the phenomenon. The book includes a
literature review which combines the topics of SME
internationalization, strategic networks, and the issues
which relate specifically to SME alliances in the form of
export consortia. Entrepreneurs and executives will find
useful business models and management tools for the
successful design and implementation of export consortia.

Nanotechnology for a sustainable world : global
artificial photosynthesis as nanotechnology-s moral
culmination / Thomas Faunce.-- Cheltenham: Edward Elgar,
ix, 217p. 24cm.
ISBN : 9781848446717.
620.5 FAU 135860
Does humanity have a moral obligation to emphasize
nanotechnology-s role in addressing the critical public
health and environmental problems of our age? This well
crafted book explores this idea by analyzing the
prospects for a macro science nanotechnology-for-
environmental sustainability project in areas such as
food, water and energy supply, medicine, healthcare,
peace and security. The book concludes that the moral
culmination of nanotechnology is a Global Artificial
Photosynthesis (GAP) project. It argues that the
symmetric patterns of energy creating photosynthesis,
life and us, are shaping not only the nano technological
advances of artificial photosynthesis, but also the
ethical and legal norms likely to best govern such
scientific achievements to form a sustainable existence
on this planet.

From Stephen R. Covey-s eldest son come a revolutionary
book that will guide business leaders, public figures and
their organizations towards unprecedented productivity
and satisfaction. Trust, says Stephen M. R. Covey, is the
very basis of the 21st century-s global economy, but its
power is generally overlooked and misunderstood. Covey
shows you how to inspire immediate trust in everyone you
encounter - colleagues, constituents, the marketplace -
allowing you to forego the time-killing and energy-
draining check and balance bureaucracies that are so
often relied upon in lieu of actual trust.

Anyone who works in an office probably has to deal with
at least some people who are so different they might as
well be from another planet. These differences can lead
to conflict or - if handled properly - to a greater
appreciation of others and a more productive workplace.
The secret to getting along lies in understanding the
different personality traits people exhibit and how to
relate to them.The author identifies 11 traits that can
make work relationships difficult, which she compares to
the planets (plus the moon and the sun), and shows
whether one is more of a conformist or experimenter,
Jupiter, made up mostly of gases, has a bubbly spirit,
and signifies one-s level of optimism, Earth (as in "down
to Earth") indicates whether someone is grounded, or has
one-s "head in the clouds."

Bigger Isn-t Always Better also offers stunning examples
of the failure of the Big-Is-Good philosophy, including
the ill-fated Hewlett-Packard/Compaq merger and its
highest-profile casualty, CEO Carly Fiorina.After years
of cutbacks, growth is in again. But instead of assuming
that an inflated business can dominate a market through
sheer size or manufactured numbers, the new model shows
how engaged growers use positive psychology to drive
robust and sustainable growth. Combining real-life
stories, thorough scientific research, and insightful
analysis, Bigger Isn-t Always Better shows how your
organization can move forward-without tripping over its
own feet."
