One of the book’s great strengths is its relevance to all
students in Higher Education required to undertake a
literature review. A sense of security prevailed in the
presence of the author-s uncomplicated writing style and
pages rightly divided into manageable chunks lives up to
its claim to contain extensive practical tips on how to
prepare, organize and write a successful literature
review. The Literature Review is a concise step-by-step
guide to conducting a literature search and writing up
the literature review chapter in Masters Dissertations
and in Ph.D. and professional doctorate theses. Diana
Ridley describes how to carry out a literature review in
a systematic, methodical way, providing useful strategies
for efficient reading, conducting searches, organizing
information and writing the review itself.

ancient and modern, in the light of their contrast with
modernity. The scope of the book is extremely broad,
covering topics such as Orientalism, women, goddesses,

This volume examines human sexuality as an intrinsic
element in the interpretation of complex colonial
societies. While archaeological studies of the historic
past have explored the dynamics of European colonialism,
such work has largely ignored broader issues of
sexuality, embodiment, commemoration, reproduction and
sensuality. This book explores a variety of case studies,
revealing the multifaceted intersections of colonialism
and sexuality. Incorporating work that ranges from
Phoenician diasporic communities of the eighth century to
Britain-s nineteenth-century Australian penal colonies to
the contemporary Maroon community of Brazil, this volume
changes the way we understand the relationship between
sexuality and colonial history.

In the 3rd edition of Methods of Family Research, authors
Theodore N. Greenstein and Shannon N. Davis continue to
help students better understand the research results they
encounter in doing family research. Using real-life
examples to illustrate important concepts that family
researchers encounter regularly, the text covers
traditional quantitative methods, qualitative methods,
and the mixed-method approach. Written in a clear,
concise style, this book differs from other research
methods texts, which focus on teaching students how to
produce research, by teaching them how to consume
research in a sophisticated, effective manner. The book
introduces the basic concepts of social science research
methods without excessive technical details.

power and its contestation? This new introduction offers

Stone begins this update of the 2002 edition with a story
of her childhood encounter with "the policy paradox,"
rampant in political life, when ordinary rules don-t stop
bullies or help victims. For example, President Obama-s
legislative victories have been turned into political
liabilities by conservatives. Contrasting her model of
the polis (political society) with the market model, she
presents a rationality policy framework that encompasses
a goal, problem, discrepancy between the goal and
reality, and solutions. Cartoons reinforce her points.

Most conceptions of human rights rely on metaphysical or
theological assumptions that construe them as possible
only as something imposed from outside existing
communities. Most people, in other words, presume that
human rights come from nature, God, or the United
Nations. This book argues that reliance on such putative
sources actually undermines human rights. Benjamin Gregg
envisions an alternative, he sees human rights as locally
developed, freely embraced, and indigenously valid. Human
rights, he posits, can be created by the average,
ordinary people to whom they are addressed, and that they
are valid only if embraced by those to whom they would
apply. To view human rights in this manner is to increase
the chances and opportunities that more people across the
globe will come to embrace them.

High-profile controversies surrounding the funding of
political parties have shown how inequalities in wealth
can enter the political process. The growth of the
professional lobbying of MPs and the executive raises
similar questions about money in politics. More broadly,
inequalities emerge in terms of the opportunities the
public have to participate in political debate. This
analysis of the ways wealth can be used to influence
politics in Britain explores the threat posed to the
principle of political equality. As well as examining
lobbying and party funding, the discussion also focuses
on the ownership and control of the media, the chance to
be heard on the internet and the impact of the
privatization of public spaces on rights to assemble and

The 19 original essays in this Handbook, written by
leading scholars from Asia, North America, and Europe,
analyze both the strengths and weaknesses of capitalist
systems. The volume opens with essays on the historical
and legal origins of capitalism. These are followed by
chapters describing the nature, institutions, and
advantages of capitalism: entrepreneurship, innovation,
property rights, contracts, capital markets, and the
modern corporation. The next set of chapters discusses
the problems that can arise in capitalist systems
including monopoly, principal agent problems, financial
bubbles, excessive managerial compensation, and empire
building through wealth-destroying mergers. Two
subsequent essays examine in detail the properties of the
"Asian model" of capitalism as exemplified by Japan and
South Korea, and capitalist systems where ownership and
control are largely separated as in the United States and
United Kingdom. The handbook concludes with an essay on
capitalism in the 21st century by Nobel Prize winner

While there is now consensus that liberalizing reforms
have been behind the acceleration of growth in India to
the current 8 to 9 percent level, critics continue to
argue that opening the economy to trade has hurt the
poor, that rapid growth is leaving the socially
disadvantaged groups behind, and that the reforms have
led to increased inequality. They also argue that people
themselves do not feel that their fortunes are improving.
Five original essays in this volume, topped by a
substantial introductory essay summarizing their
findings, meet these challenges to the reforms head-on.
They use large-scale sample surveys and other data to
systematically address each of these arguments. They show
that trade openness has indeed helped reduce poverty not
just in general but also among the socially disadvantaged
groups. The contributors to the volume find no evidence
whatsoever to support the claim of a negative impact of
trade openness on poverty in any social group. The essays
also show that inequality exhibits no definite trend
since the liberalizing reforms and that it is unrelated
to trade openness. People’s responses have also now
turned decidedly in favor of reforms.

The Eagle and the Elephant shows how economic engagement
directly affects how the United States cooperates with
India on strategic issues. Through case studies of major
efforts, including civil nuclear cooperation, services
outsourcing, antiterrorism, and electricity generation
and the environment, Raymond E. Vickery Jr. presents both
successful and unsuccessful instances of complex
collaborations between the two nations. Buttressed by
information from official sources, journalistic accounts,
and interviews, he offers new insight into the interplay
of legislative and executive branch officials, policy
proponents, business and nonprofit organizations, and
activists. Vickery explores how the United States employs
commercial diplomacy as only one component of an overall
economic engagement in the formation and implementation
of foreign policy.

To lift and keep millions out of poverty requires that
smallholder agriculture be productive and profitable in

Researchers and practitioners still debate how best to do
so. The prevailing methodology, which claims causality
from measures of statistical significance, is inductive
and yields contradictory results. In this book, instead
of correlations, Isabelle Tsakok looks for patterns
common to cases of successful agricultural transformation
and then tests them against other cases. The single most
important threat to such government commitment is
subservience to the rich and powerful minority.

India-s services trade has grown at a very fast pace and
now contributes more than one-third of the export
revenue. India has also succeeded in raising its
penetration in global markets more rapidly for services
than for goods. Discussing the theoretical and empirical
basis of the flourishing world trade in services, this
book analyses the factors responsible for the rapid rise
in services trade in India, its composition, and sectoral
strengths and weaknesses. Being invisible, services trade
faces many complicated barriers and challenges.
Highlighting the implications of rising services trade
for pro-poor growth, this book delineates why removal of
barriers to trade in services may be welfare enhancing in

This detailed book critiques how the World Trade
Organization scrutinizes domestic measures to determine
compliance with the WTO Agreements. This scrutiny, known
as the standard of review, is particularly relevant when
WTO panels are examining measures involving controversial
domestic policy issues. This new standard of review would
better reflect the autonomy contemplated for members
under the WTO rules and reduce scope for the contention
that the WTO overreaching its mandate. This work provides
a foundation for mediating relations between states and
the WTO, and similar international organisations. It will
be of great interest to scholars and practitioners in the
fields of law and international relations with an
interest in international economic law, the WTO or
international organisations in general.

In this book, three prominent business leaders and
entrepreneurs now venture capitalists and CEO
advisers share the qualities that surface again and again
in those who successfully achieve their goals. After
interviewing and researching hundreds of business-
builders across the globe, the authors found that every
one of them from young founder to seasoned CEO holds a
combination of these four attributes. Indeed each of us
tends to be biased toward one of these traits in our
decision-making, and figuring out which trait drives you
will lead to greater self-awareness and likelihood of
success in starting and growing a business.

India: Brief History of a Civilization provides a brief
overview of a very long period, allowing students to
acquire a mental map of the entire history of Indian
civilization in a short book. Most comprehensive
histories devote a few chapters to the early history of
India and an increasing number of pages to the more
recent period, giving an impression that early history is
mere background and that Indian civilization finds its
fulfillment in the nation-state. Thomas R. Trautmann
believes that the deep past lives on and is a valuable
resource for understanding the present day and for
creating a viable future.

The Great Rebellion of 1857 in India was much more than a
-sepoy mutiny-. It was a major event in South Asian and
British colonial history that significantly challenged
imperialism in India. This fascinating collection
explores hitherto ignored diversities of the Great
Rebellion such as gender and colonial fiction,
courtesans, white -marginals-, penal laws and colonial
anxieties about the Mughals, even in exile. Also studied
are popular struggles involving tribals and outcastes,
and the way outcastes in the south of India locate the
Rebellion. Interdisciplinary in focus and based on a
range of untapped source materials and rare, printed
tracts, this book questions conventional wisdom. The
comprehensive introduction traces the different historio-
graphical approaches to the Great Rebellion, including
the imperialist, nationalist, Marxist and subaltern
