involve dealing with people and their problems. It covers
an extensive range of topics underpinning the work of a
wide variety of staff, identifying key issues of concern
to students, practitioners and managers. The book is
divided into three parts. Part I stresses the importance
of personal effectiveness skills, while Part II
concentrates on the skills involved in personal
interactions. Part III has as its focus the skills of
intervention - agreeing what needs to be done and taking
the necessary steps to make it happen. A central feature
of the book is its emphasis on the need for issues of
equality and diversity to be integrated into all aspects
of practice.

ISBN : 9780691158686.

The book shows that severe trade imbalances spurred on
the recent financial crisis and were the result of
unfortunate policies that distorted the savings and
consumption patterns of certain nations. It examines the
reasons behind these destabilizing policies. Although
various imbalances may seem unrelated, Pettis shows that
all of them--including the U.S. consumption binge,
surging debt in Europe, China-s investment orgy, Japan-s
long stagnation, and the commodity boom in Latin America-
are closely tied together, and that it will be impossible
to resolve any issue without forcing a resolution for
all. Demonstrating how economic policies can carry
negative repercussions the world over, The Great
Rebalancing sheds urgent light on our globally linked
economic future.

each mode is illustrated by cases studies based on the
author-s interviews with thirty people, who have
extensive experience working with a mode in their
field. It brings the multiple modes together into an
integrated theory of multimodality. Step-by-step,
beginning with theory then exploring modes and how to
work with them, before concluding with how to apply this
in an investigation, each stage of working with
multimodality is covered.

New York: Routledge, 2012.
xv, 296p. 24cm.
ISBN : 9780415809535.
951.05 KAT 137694
China-s rise and processes of Sinicization suggest that
recombination of new and old elements rather than a total
rupture with or return to the past is China-s likely
future. This book-s emphasis on Sinicization as a
specific instance of civilizational processes counters
political and intellectual shortcuts and corrects the
mistakes to which they often lead. Sinicization
illustrates that like other civilizations China has
always been open to variegated social and political
processes that have brought together many different kinds
of peoples adhering to very different kinds of practices.
This book tries to avoid the reifications and
celebrations that mark much of the contemporary public
debate about China-s rise. It highlights instead complex
processes and political practices bridging East and West
that avoid easy shortcuts.

University Press, 2011.
xviii,304p. 23cm.
ISBN : 9780521193672.
951.056 LEE 137698
By analyzing secret archival documents, the author
traces the history of the cult within the Communist Party
and at the grassroots level. The party leadership-s
original intention was to develop a prominent brand
symbol, which would compete with the nationalists-
elevation of Chiang Kai-shek. However, they did not
anticipate that Mao would use this symbolic power to
mobilize Chinese youth to rebel against party bureaucracy
itself. The result was anarchy and when the army was
called in it relied on mandatory rituals of worship such
as daily reading of the Little Red Book to restore order.
Such fascinating detail sheds light not only on the
personality cult of Mao, but also on hero-worship in
other traditions.

that anti-colonial action stemmed not only from a

but from the speculative aspiration to critique and
transcend notions of universalism and the ultimate good
brought by British rule.
