Qualitative mathematics for the social sciences :

xiii, 478p. 24cm.
ISBN : 9780415444828.
150.15118 RUD 137168
In this book the author brings together international
contributors who combine psychological and mathematical
perspectives to analyse how qualitative mathematics can
be used to create models of social and psychological
processes. Bridging the gap between the fields with an
imaginative and stimulating collection of contributed
chapters, the volume updates the current research on the
subject, which until now has been rather limited,
focusing largely on the use of statistics. This book
contains a variety of useful illustrative figures. A
beguiling array of conceptual systems, topological models
and fractals are discussed which transcend the
application of statistics, and bring a fresh perspective
to the study of social representations.

The moral rhetoric of political economy : justice and
modern economic thought / Paul Turpin.-- London:
ISBN : 9780415773928.
174 TUR 137156
This book examines the effects of the moral rhetoric of
the market concept of justice on our understanding of
justice. Market theory’s elevation of the role of
commutative justice, or justice in exchange and property,
is often taken as liberalists revolutionary change in
priorities of justice in parting from the feudal world.
This change has come at the expense of diminishing the
role of distributive justice, or justice in what the
community owes its members. This diminishment rules out
discussion in the public sphere of any questions about
our obligations to each other outside the market,
relegating such questions instead to the purview of
social decorum, so at the very historical moment in which
equality of persons becomes the foundational condition
for political liberty, the implications of that equality
for how we should treat each other cease to be admissible
as live political issues t that is, discussable as

In this book, the author explains how new ideas spread
via communication channels over time. Such innovations
are initially perceived as uncertain and even risky. To
overcome this uncertainty, most people seek out others
like themselves who have already adopted the new idea.
Thus the diffusion process consists of a few individuals
who first adopt an innovation, then spread the word among
their circle of acquaintances--a process which typically
takes months or years. The book addresses the spread of
the Internet, and how it has transformed the way human
beings communicate and adopt new ideas.

author addresses the origins of the rule of law and
innovations that led to the rise of a market economy,
separation of faith and governance, and the autonomy of
finance-key components of the liberal state. He then
addresses the emergence of sustained economic growth, a
bridge between the liberal infrastructure and its
application during the construction of a nation.

In this book, the author argues that pivoting towards the
Far East is premature and flawed in principle. China can
and should be treated for the near future as a potential
partner in a changing global order, rather than contained
and made into an enemy. At the same time, he argues, the
true hot spots continue to be in the Middle East, albeit
not in Iraq or Afghanistan, but in Iran and Pakistan.
Less urgent but of great importance are the ways the West
deals with a complex and varied Muslim world, with
political Islamic parties and social movements, and with
future waves of Arab awaking. Here the distinction
between security and nation building becomes essential
for both normative and strategic reasons. .

Social scientists and policy makers have long been
interested in the causes and consequences of peace and
conflict. This Handbook brings together contributions
from leading scholars who take an economic perspective to
study the topic. It includes thirty-three chapters and is
divided into five parts: Correlates of Peace and Conflict
Consequences and Costs of Conflict, On the Mechanics of
Conflict, Conflict and Peace in Economic Context, and
Pathways to Peace. Taken together, they demonstrate not
only how the tools of economics can be fruitfully used to
advance our understanding of conflict, but how explicitly
incorporating conflict into economic analysis can add
substantively to our understanding of observed economic
phenomena. Some chapters are largely empirical,
identifying correlates of war and peace and quantifying
many of the costs of conflict.

The role of multilateral banks is crucial, they inform
the impact of development operations and support
policymakers in decision making. This book emphasizes
that some crucial links in development tend to be
systematically overlooked. In these matters,
preoccupation with the immediate exigencies seems to come
at the expense of attention to enduring problems--at a
great cost to society. Development practitioners should
apply policies that have produced results over time,
ensuring that the links in the chain are strong, but too
often they overlook those links--because of myopia,
complexity, tradition, or special interests.

Water is our planet-s most precious resource. It is
required by every living thing, yet a huge proportion of
the world-s population struggles to access clean water
daily. Agriculture, aquaculture, industry, and energy all
depend on it - yet its provision and safety engender
widespread conflict, battles likely to intensify as
threats to freshwater abundance and quality, such as
climate change, urbanization, new forms of pollution, and
the privatization of control, continue to grow. Drawing
on a rich range of examples from across the world, it
explores the complexity of future challenges, concluding
that nations must work together to embrace everyonets
water needs while also establishing fair, consistent
criteria to promote available supply with less pollution.

This book undertakes a comprehensive, detailed, and
careful philosophical analysis of the many reasons those
scientists, economists, philosophers, and others offer
for why biodiversity is supposed to be such a central
good of nature. Its conclusion is both surprising and
disturbing: No reason for biodiversity-s good can be
found that is not ill-conceived, logically indefensible,
internally contradictory, or self-undermining. The
profound failure to find the good of nature in its
biodiversity is a springboard for rethinking what,
exactly, makes the natural world so uniquely and robustly
valuable. This leads to a novel suggestion - that
nature-s value might be located in a particular human-
nature relationship, which anchors the appropriate fit of
people in the world at large.

How can municipalities in Central Europe create favorable

municipalities learn from each other? How can each
individual in the local area contribute? And what
requirements have to be met before know-how can
successfully be transferred on a communal level? To
answer all these questions, the authors of this book draw
on results from a six-year research programmed and
comprehensively discuss the manifold opportunities,
restrictions and prerequisites of establishing favorable

This book challenges the dominant catechism of
development assistance by arguing that the focus on
economic growth (and fighting poverty) has failed to
bring about the promised "convergence." The authors make
the claim that the struggle for development ought to
decisively focus on mitigating vulnerability of poor
people and poor nations. This implies that instead of
removing the symptoms of poverty, policies should aim at
improving the coherence of the poor economies so that
they become more responsive and adaptable to shocks. The
idea is powerful and worthy of elaboration.

This book tells the story of the search for non-Walrasian
micro-foundations for macroeconomic theory, from the
disequilibrium theories of Patinkin, Clower, and
Leijonhufvud to recent dynamic stochaotic general
equilibrium models with imperfect competition. Placing
this search against the background of wider developments
in macroeconomics, the authors contend that this was
never a single research program, but involved economists
with very different aims who developed the basic ideas
about quantity constraints, spillover effects, and
coordination failures in different ways. This book
focuses on one strand in modern macroeconomics.

The EU and the US responded to the global financial
crisis by changing the rules for the functioning of
financial services and markets and by establishing new
oversight bodies. With the US Dodd-Frank Act and numerous
EU regulations and directives now in place, this book
provides a timely and thoughtful explanation of the key
elements of the new regimes in both regions, of the
political processes which shaped their content and of
their practical impact. Insights from areas such as
economics, political science and financial history
elucidate the significance of the reforms. Australia-s
resilience during the financial crisis, which contrasted
sharply with the severe problems that were experienced in
the EU and the US, is also examined. The comparison
between the performances of these major economies in a
period of such extreme stress tells us much about the
complex regulatory and economic ecosystems of which
financial markets are a part.

In this book, the author urges that judges resist the
temptation to use legislative intention and legislative
history. In his view, it is incompatible with democratic
government to allow the meaning of a statute to be
determined by what the judges think the lawgivers meant
rather than by what the legislature actually promulgated.
Eschewing the judicial lawmaking that is the essence of
common law, judges should interpret statutes and
regulations by focusing on the text itself. Scalia then
extends this principle to constitutional law. He proposes
that we abandon the notion of an ever-changing
Constitution and pay attention to the Constitution-s

Contributors then draw on non-Western traditions and
experience to suggest workable inter-cultural models to
enhance organizational effectiveness in an increasingly

need for less self-interested approaches to management if
local and global communities and the environment are to
escape on-going damage and exploitation. Part Two draws
on values from Indian and Maori traditions to propose
alternatives to Western models of business ethics. Part
Three suggests ways of approaching the challenges of
developing sustained ethical leadership in the

This book provides an understanding of firmst RandD and
innovation strategies and their economy-wide
consequences. It is based on the premise that differences
in firm-level returns, as well as economy-wide outcomes,
may be linked to the heterogeneous ways in which firms
organize and undertake RandD and innovation activities. It
emphasizes innovation strategies of innovating firms, and
reflects that innovation efforts do not represent a
uniform type of expenditure. Organized into three parts
the volume moves from the micro to the macro-level. This
structure highlights the notion that RandD and innovation

This book investigates how the material culture of South
Indian courts was perceived by those who lived there in
the pre-colonial period. The author peels away the
standard categories used to study Indian palace space,
such as public/private and male/female, and replaces them
with indigenous descriptions of space found in court
poetry, vastu shastra and painted representations of
courtly life. Set against the historical background of
the events which led to the formation of the Ramnad
Kingdom, the Kingdom-s material circumstances are
examined, beginning with the innermost region of the
palace and moving out to the Kingdom via the palace
compound itself and the walled town which surrounded it.

For decades, schoolbooks have taught that Sumer was the
cradle of civilization. Conventional scholarship has also
held that Aryan civilization came to India by way of
invasions from the north. But in this ground-breaking
book, three renowned scholars show that there was no
"Aryan invasion," and that India, not Sumer, was the
cradle of civilized humanity. Through exploring the rich
symbols, metaphors, and myths of the Vedas, this book
also examines the wealth of India-s spirituality and its
relevance for today-s world.

Western scholars have argued that Indian civilization was
the joint product of an invading Indo-European people--
the "Indo-Aryans"--and indigenous non-Indo European
peoples. Although Indian scholars reject this European
reconstruction of their country-s history, Western
scholarship gives little heed to their argument. In this
book, Edwin Bryant explores the nature and origins of
this fascinating debate.
