Doing Qualitative Research shows how qualitative research
is evidence-based stories of our social life. It includes
a wide range of designs and methods-leading ones such as
ethnography and content analysis, but also less familiar
ones such as social autopsies, community-based
participatory research, visual methods, and historical-
comparative studies. It introduces readers to the
scientific method in qualitative inquiry while
considering controversies about the limits of the
scientific model in social research.

170 MAR 137143
In this volume, the author offers a defense of amorality
as both philosophically justified and practicably
livable. In so doing, the book marks a radical departure
from both the new atheism and the mainstream of modern
ethical philosophy. While in synch with their underlying
aim of grounding human existence in a naturalistic
metaphysics, the book takes both to task for maintaining
a complacent embrace of morality. Marks advocates wiping
the slate clean of outdated connotations by replacing the
language of morality with a language of desire.

The author does not assert the superiority of one view

it would be presumptuous to attempt to deal with it and
it would be preposterous to pretend to a final solution
to a set of ideas as comprehensive as these worldview.
The author is aware that the contents of this comparative

Aurobindo as a misrepresentation of his works. He tries
to stimulate a fruitful dialogue and evaluates this
dialogue in a sympathetic manner when he refers to the

Although the goals of these individuals were often quite
different, the leadership processes they used were
frequently similar. The book also includes an
introductory chapter explaining the latest theories of
leadership. Each snapshot will add an important -reality
check- to the theories and models described in most
introductory leadership textbooks, making this an
important supplement for students taking leadership
courses. Leaders from various disciplines, historical,
religious, political, sports, and business, are included,
as well as leaders from around the world. Each chapter
ends with a discussion of theories of leadership
pertaining to that leader, and questions for discussion.

Divided into six parts this book explores, the ambiguity
of things, representing things, making things, empires of
things, consuming things and lastly the power of things.
Spanning across the early modern world, from Ming dynasty
China to Georgian England, and from Ottoman Egypt to
Spanish America, the authors provide a generous set of
examples in how to study the circulation, use,
consumption and, most fundamentally, the nature of things
themselves. Drawing on a broad range of disciplinary
perspectives and lavishly illustrated, Early Modern
Things supplies fresh and provocative insights into how
objects - ordinary and extraordinary, secular and sacred,
natural and man-made - came to define some of the key
developments of the early modern world.

This book examines in detail the conceptual orders that
underpin democracy support activity, and the conceptions
of democracy that democracy promoters, consciously or

multiple models of democracy, this text provides the
reader not only with the outlines of various possible
politico-economic models of democracy, but also with a
close empirical engagement with democracy promoters-
discourses and practices. Drawing on a broad spectrum of
examples, it exposes the challenges faced by Western
governments in trying to reshape the political and
economic landscape across the world and tentatively
advances a set of concrete policy provocations which may
enable a more pluralist and flexible democracy promotion
practice to emerge.

This book places the lens on postcolonial agency and

witnessed great transformations in international
politics. What does postcolonial politics mean in a late
modern context of interventions that seek to govern
postcolonial populations? Drawing on historic and
contemporary articulations of agency and resistance and
highlighting voices from the postcolonial world, the book
explores the transition from colonial modernity to the
late modern postcolonial era. It shows that at each
moment wherein the claim to politics is made, the
postcolonial subject comes face to face with global
operations of power that seek to control and govern.

330.122 SWA 137325
A particular focus of this book is how free markets work
in capitalism and the interrelationship between markets
and the government. Underlying the standard economics
text today is the fundamental belief that leaving markets
as free as possible will lead to the ideal economy.
Directly opposing this approach, this book takes a
critical stance toward free markets. Rather than viewing
markets as the ideal solution to almost all economic
problems, this book argues that markets are not always
the answer. On the contrary, they are often the problem,
and must be corrected by government action. Related to
this critical stance, this book takes an explicitly
Keynesian approach to the macro-economy. Rejecting the
free market approach which dominates both micro- and
macro economics today, this book offers a fresh
perspective on economics and the economy today.

No systematic effort has been made to bring together the
factors of Keynesian revolution to examine them from a
sociology of science perspective.This book fills this gap
by taking its cue from a well-established tradition of
work from history of science studies devoted to
identifying the intellectual, technical, institutional,
psychological and financial factors which help to explain
why certain research schools are successful and why
others fail. This approach, it turns out, provides a
coherent account of why the revolution in macroeconomics
was -Keynesian- and why, on a related note, Keynes was
able to see off contemporary competitor theorists,
notably Friedrich von Hayek and Michal Kalecki.

Private Equity experienced dramatic fluctuations in
investment activity in line with the turbulences of
financial markets in recent years. Claudia Sommer
develops a theoretical framework of factors driving
private equity investment activity and the resulting
performance implications. Using a data set of more than
40,000 European transactions between 1990 and 2009 she
applies a variety of econometrical approaches and shows
how neoclassical aspects, information asymmetries, agency
conflicts, and market timing contribute to the dynamics
in the private equity market.

The theoretical and empirical case studies presented here
advance the notion that, while developing countries may
not engage in frontier research, a critical knowledge
base upon which these countries compete for global
markets is emerging.There is evidence that state and non-
state actors are increasingly emphasising policies that
sit within the framework of national innovation systems.
This book illuminates this shift in policy competence at
national levels. The contributions in this volume
highlight the need for thorough understanding of the role
of diffusion-based innovation linked to technology

xiv, 247p. 23cm.

338.927 CAT 137135
The concept of the -bioregion- - developed and
popularised within the disciplines of earth sciences,
biosciences and planning - may facilitate the
reconceptualisation of the global economy as a system of
largely self-sufficient local economies. A bioregional
approach to economics assumes a different system of
values to that which dominates neoclassical economics.
The global economy is driven by growth, and the
consumption ethic that matches this is one of expansion
in range and quantity. The bioregional approach challenges
every aspect of that value system. It seeks a new ethic
of consumption that prioritises locality, accountability
and conviviality in the place of expansion and profit, it
proposes a shift in the focus of the economy away from
profits and towards provisioning, and it assumes a
radical reorientation of work from employment towards

The development of a global -knowledge economy- has
encouraged organizations of all types to focus on the
opportunities for, and the threats to, the intellectual
property that they hold. The variety of intellectual
assets (designs, databases, patents, brands and trade
marks), the growth of new technology capable of
exploiting and protecting these assets, and the nature of
the law mean that intellectual property enforcement is a
hugely complex area. This book explains the threats and

Transforming Urban Transport confronts head-on the
dilemma faced by a world addicted to automobility. It
highlights the danger of continuing along the fossil-fuel
path and gives viable technological alternatives which
can be deployed to find a solution. Changes in urban
mobility and transport require local institutional policy
action. To support such action, the book explores new
methods of governance of transport in dispersed and
concentrated cities, new techniques for assessing
transport needs, ways of improving childhood mobility,
guidelines for political mobilization, and norms of

Interpreting figurative meaning / Raymond W Gibbs and
Herbert L Colston.-- Cambridge: Cambridge University
v, 384 p. 24 cm.
ISBN : 9781107607279.
401.9 GIB 137205
The book critically evaluates the recent empirical work
from psycholinguistics and neuroscience examining the
successes and difficulties associated with interpreting
figurative language. There is now a huge, often
contradictory literature on how people understand figures
of speech. Gibbs and Colston argue that there may not be
a single theory or model that adequately explains both
the processes and products of figurative meaning
experience. Experimental research may ultimately be
unable to simply adjudicate between current models in
psychology, linguistics and philosophy of how figurative
meaning is interpreted. Alternatively, the authors
advance a broad theoretical framework, motivated by ideas
from "dynamical systems theory," that describes the
multiple, interacting influences which shape people-s
experiences of figurative meaning in discourse.

organization together as a single system. It provides a
whole-firm view of management and suggests that

Providing a concise and accessible introduction to the
work of the celebrated twentieth century German
philosopher, Hans-Georg Gadamer, this book focuses on the
aspects of Gadamer-s philosophy that have been the most
influential among architects, educators in architecture,
and architectural theorists. Gadamer-s philosophy of art
gives a special place to the activity of "play" as it
occurs in artistic creation. His reflections on meaning
and symbolism in art draw upon his teacher, Martin
Heidegger, while moving Heidegger-s thought in new
directions. His theory of interpretation, or
"philosophical hermeneutics," offers profound ways to
understand the influence of the past upon the present and
to appropriate cultural history in ever new forms.

This book explores how the mythical and mystical past
informs national imaginations. Building on notions of
invented tradition and myths of the nation, it looks at
the power of narrative and fiction to shape identity,
with particular reference to the British and Celtic
contexts. The authors consider how aspects of the past
are reinterpreted or reimagined in a variety of ways to
give coherence to desired national groupings, or groups
aspiring to nationhood and its -defence-.Innovative and
interdisciplinary, the scholarship in Mysticism, Myth and
Celtic Identity is mainly literary but also geographical
and historical and draws on religious studies, politics
and the social sciences. Thus the collection offers a
stimulatingly broad number of new viewpoints on a matter
of great topical relevance: national identity and the
politicization of its myths.
