ISBN : 9780691136042.
320.473 BER 136771
Drawing on rich evidence about the development of the
American states from the mid-nineteenth to the late
twentieth century, this book documents the mechanisms
through which geographical and historical conditions -
such as climate, access to water transportation, and
early legal systems - impacted political and judicial
institutions and economic growth. The book shows how a
state-s geography and climate influenced whether elites
based their wealth in agriculture or trade. States with
more occupationally diverse elites in 1860 had greater
levels of political competition in their legislature from
1866 to 2000.

Doing capitalism in the innovation economy : markets,

ISBN : 9781107031258.
332.04154 JAN 136777
The innovation economy begins with discovery and
culminates in speculation. Over some 250 years, economic
growth has been driven by successive processes of trial
and error: upstream exercises in research and invention
and downstream experiments in exploiting the new economic
space opened by innovation. Drawing on his professional
experiences, William H. Janeway provides an accessible
pathway for readers to appreciate the dynamics of the
innovation economy. He combines personal reflections from
a career spanning forty years in venture capital, with
the development of an original theory of the role of
asset bubbles in financing technological innovation and
of the role of the state in playing an enabling role in
the innovation process.

The author shows how diverse political party structures
influenced the orientations and patterns of financial
policy changes and capital market developments. The book
thus makes clear why the national configurations of
political parties are pressing political challenges in
emerging market counties. It also highlights political
party structures as the crucial political and
institutional underpinnings of financial market
governance in the context of global financial crises.

Reconciling regionalism and multilateralism is a

multilateralism in global economic governance. It is of

With the goal of designing efficient, relevant Distance
education for worldwide audiences, Harmonizing Global
Education invites scholars and practitioners to consider
the historic development of technology-based education
and communication studies, going back further in the
literature than is often assumed necessary. The book
examines a wide range of historical ideas capable of
shaping modern DE, including the Luddite Revolt among
British textiles workers in 1811-12, the evolution of
cubist art and musical aesthetics, and the visionary
advances of early twentieth-century Soviet multimedia
specialists. The author urges an awareness of previous
generations of communications studies, and shows how
audience research relating to traditional media can be
relevant in the design of current internet-based and
social media approaches.

The Smoot-Hawley tariff of 1930, which raised U.S. duties
on hundreds of imported goods to record levels, is
America-s most infamous trade law. It is often associated
with--and sometimes blamed for--the onset of the Great
Depression, the collapse of world trade, and the global
spread of protectionism in the 1930s. Even today, the
ghosts of congressmen Reed Smoot and Willis Hawley haunt
anyone arguing for higher trade barriers, almost single-
handedly, they made protectionism an insult rather than a
compliment. In Peddling Protectionism, Douglas Irwin
provides the first comprehensive history of the causes
and effects of this notorious measure, explaining why it
largely deserves its reputation for combining bad
politics and bad economics and harming the U.S. and world
economies during the Depression.

makers by the increasingly broad nature of Free Trade

Newcomers to R are often intimidated by the command-line
interface, the vast number of functions and packages, or
the processes of importing data and performing a simple
statistical analysis. This book provides a collection of
concise examples and solutions to R problems frequently
encountered by new users of this statistical software.
Rather than explore the many options available for every
command as well as the ever-increasing number of
packages, the book focuses on the basics of data
preparation and analysis and gives examples that can be
used as a starting point.

Examining the world of popular healing in South Asia,
this book looks at the way that it is marginalised by the
state and medical establishment while at the same time
being very important in the everyday lives of the poor.
It describes and analyses a world of -subaltern
therapeutics- that both interacts with and resists state-
sanctioned and elite forms of medical practice. The
relationship is seen as both a historical as well as
ongoing one.

The founder-s dilemmas : anticipating and avoiding the
pitfalls that can sink a startup / Noam Wasserman.--
Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2012.
ix, 480p. 24cm.
ISBN : 9780691149134.
658.11 WAS 136772
This is the first book to examine the early decisions by
entrepreneurs that can make or break a startup and its
team. Drawing on a decade of research, Noam Wasserman
reveals the common pitfalls founders face and how to
avoid them. He looks at whether it is a good idea to
cofound with friends , how and when to split the equity
within the founding team, and how to recognize when a
successful founder-CEO should exit or be fired. Wasserman
explains how to anticipate, avoid, or recover from
disastrous mistakes that can splinter a founding team,
strip founders of control, and leave founders without a
financial payoff for their hard work and innovative
ideas. He highlights the need at each step to strike a
careful balance between controlling the startup and
attracting the best resources to grow it, and
demonstrates why the easy short-term choice is often the
most perilous in the long-term.

An organization’s human resource management (HRM)
policies and their implementation have long been claimed
to influence trust within an organizational environment.
However there has, until now, been a limited examination
of the relationship between the two. In this unique book,
the contributors explore the HRM cycle from entry to
exit, and examine in detail the issue of trust and its
links with HRM. Each chapter takes an aspect of HRM
including, selection, performance management, careers and
personal development, training, change management and
exit, and offers a new understanding and insight into the
role, importance and challenges to trust within these

The aim of this book is to explore digital media and
intercultural interaction at an arts college in Tanzania
through innovative forms of ethnographic representation.
The book and the series website weave together visual and
aural narratives, interviews and observations, life
stories and video documentaries, art performances and
productions. It paints a vivid portrayal of everyday life
in East Africa’s only institute for practical art
training, while tracing the rich cultural history of a
state that has mixed tribalism, nationalism, Pan-
Africanism, and cosmopolitanism in astonishingly creative
ways. While following the anthropological tradition of
thick description, Digital Drama employs a more artistic
and accessible style of writing.

Theorising Resistance: Narratives in History and Politics
is a collection of essays thematically and logically
connected by their focus on the discourse of resistance
in language and literature. Looking at the Indian
creative process and at comparative literature from such
countries as Britain and Turkey, these essays interpret
and trace the subterranean connections between individual
behavior and national histories, between past and
present, and the abstract ideals of freedom and harmony,
with a strong commitment to the perspectives from the
global South.
