Sigmund Freud-s discovery of psychoanalysis explores
links between Freud-s development of his thinking and
theory and his personal emotional journey. It follows his
early career as a medical student, researcher and
neurologist, and then as a psychotherapist, to focus on
the critical period 1895-1900. His psychoanalytic
discoveries are conceptualized in the context of his need
to achieve integration within his psyche, and in
particular to forge a more creative collaboration between
-conquistador- and -thinker-. Sigmund Freud-s discovery
of psychoanalysis will be of interest to psychoanalysts,
psychoanalytic psychotherapists, academics and teachers
of psychoanalysis, and to all serious students of the

181.112 IVA 139831
Confucian Reflections: Ancient Wisdom for Modern Times is
about the early Chinese Confucian classic the "Analects"
Lunyu, attributed to the founder of the Confucian
tradition, Kongzi (551-479 bce) and who is more commonly
referred to as "Confucius" in the West. Philip J. Ivanhoe
argues that the Analects is as relevant and important
today as it has proven to be over the course of its more
than 2000 year history, not only for the people who live
in East Asian societies but for all human beings.

the theoretical underpinnings and practical applications
of narrative research. The authors take the reader from
initial decisions about forms of narrative research,
through more complex issues of reflexivity,
interpretation and the research context. Existing
chapters have been updated to reflect changes in the
literature and new chapters from eminent narrative
scholars in Europe, Australia and the United States have
been added on a variety of topics including narratives
and embodiment, visual narratives, narratives and
storyworlds, new media narratives and Deleuzian
perspectives in narrative research.

A topic relevant to everyone - friendship - is explored
in this volume. It presents a thoughtful statement about
what we know, and have yet to learn, concerning adults-
friendships. The authors discuss state-of-the-art
research on the interplay between social structure,
individual disposition and dynamic processes of
friendship, and findings on both similarities and
differences across adult lifecourse stages. They provide
a theoretical framework, incorporating both sociological
and psychological perspectives.

The global age is distinguished by disobedience, from the
protests in Tiananmen Square to the fall of the Berlin
Wall, to the anti-G8 and anti-WTO demonstrations. In this
book, Raffaele Laudani offers a systematic review of how
disobedience has been conceptualised, supported, and
criticised throughout history. Laudani documents the
appearance of -disobedience- in the political lexicon
from ancient times to the present, and explains the
word-s manifestations, showing how its semantic wealth
transcended its liberal interpretations in the 1960s and

xxv, 285p. 24cm.

331.12095 KHO 139850
This volume investigates the links between employment,
trade and structural transformation. In the context of
global rebalancing, accompanied by inevitable changes in
trade patterns between Asia and the rest of the world,
the volume’s chapters analyze the links between trade
openness and trends in employment and its quality.
Specifically, through Asian case studies (both analytical
and econometric), the volume examines how trade and
export led growth models have led to specialization and
evolving demands on various types of labor. The rapidly
changing labor market contours in developing Asia during
this era of globalization, along with the new context
resulting from the recent global financial crisis and new
insights from theoretical literature, have led to the
need for such studies. This volume helps fill this gap in
the literature.

353 MOO 140240
A seminal figure in the field of public management, Mark
Moore presents his summation of fifteen years of
research, observation, and teaching about what public
sector executives should do to improve the performance of
public enterprises. Useful for both practicing public
executives and those who teach them, this book explicates
some of the richest of several hundred cases used at
Harvard-s Kennedy School of Government and illuminates
their broader lessons for government managers. Moore
addresses four questions that have long bedeviled public
administration: What should citizens and their
representatives expect and demand from public executives?
What sources can public managers consult to learn what is
valuable for them to produce? How should public managers
cope with inconsistent and fickle political mandates? How
can public managers find room to innovate?

lie at the heart of contemporary work with young people
and challenges you to think deeply about: - the social
context of young people - values and principles that
underpin practice - the variety of settings in which

363.7387460968 WES 139873
This book examines the reasons why international
agencies, together with national governments, are
seemingly unable to provide real and binding solutions to
the problems. The reasons presented relate to the
existing dominant global economic structure of capitalism
as well as the fact that global warming is too often seen
as an isolated problem rather than one of a suite of
exceptional, converging and accelerating crises arising
from the global capitalist political economy.

This book, one of the first to address this contribution,
focuses on five key figures: the English naturalist David
Attenborough, the French marine adventurer Jacques-Yves
Cousteau, the American primatologist Dian Fossey, the
Canadian scientist-broadcaster-activist David Suzuki, and
the Australian -crocodile hunter- Steve Irwin. Some of
the issues the author addresses include: What is the
changing relationship between western conservation and
celebrity? How has the spread of television helped shape
and mediate this relationship? To what extent can
celebrity conservation be seen as part of a global system
in which conservation, like celebrity, is big business?
The book critically examines the heroic status accorded
to the five figures mentioned above, taking in the
various discourses around nature, science, nation,
gender - through which they and their work have been
presented to us.

evaluate what type of networks their structures are built
upon and how suitable these are for future growth and
strategy. The business-s future success will depend on
the network being both well-designed and well-connected.

Metaheuristics have been a very active research topic for
more than two decades. During this time many new
metaheuristic strategies have been devised, they have
been experimentally tested and improved on challenging
benchmark problems, and they have proven to be important
tools for tackling optimization tasks in a large number
of practical applications. These challenges range from
more fundamental questions on theoretical properties and
performance guarantees, empirical algorithm analysis, the
effective configuration of metaheuristic algorithms,
approaches to combine metaheuristics with other
algorithmic techniques, towards extending the available
techniques to tackle ever more challenging problems.

processes and practices within the Asia Pacific region.
It describes how leadership processes differ across
various regions and teaches managers how to better employ
these processes in order to improve the success of their
organisations. The work moves beyond looking only at
Western ideas and explores further leadership
perspectives based on differing cultural foundations. It
considers the influences of Confucianism, Daoism, Mohism
and Legalism and also reflects the character of different
leadership styles, such as paternalistic, benevolent
transactional and transformational styles, as well as
authentic and entrepreneurial approaches.

Selecting new product or service ideas that are
worthwhile to be exploited has always been a major
challenge to firms of all kinds. Recent developments,
however, add a new facet to the evaluation challenge.
Initiatives such as innovation contests, in which
interested users may submit their ideas or solutions to
firm relevant problems, frequently lead to several tens
of thousands of submissions. Consequently, solutions are
needed that help identifying the most promising ideas.
Jèrg Haller proposes a potential solution: open
evaluation. Based on both qualitative and quantitative
research, the author examines design options, strategies,
and the capacity of open evaluation to efficiently and
effectively support decision-making for innovation.

Creativity and Advertising develops novel ways to
theorise advertising and creativity. Arguing that
combinatory accounts of advertising based on
representation, textualism and reductionism are of
limited value, Andrew McStay suggests that advertising
and creativity are better recognised in terms of the
èeventè. Drawing on a diverse set of philosophical
influences including Scotus, Spinoza, Vico, Kant,
Schiller, James, Dewey, Schopenhauer, Whitehead,
Bataille, Heidegger and Deleuze, the book posits a
sensational, process-based, transgressive, lived and
embodied approach to thinking about media, aesthetics,
creativity and our interaction with advertising.

Jim Corbett (1875 1955) was born in Naini Tal and spent
most of his life in the hills of Kumaon. He is considered
a hero for keeping the forested area intact and tracking
and killing maneating leopards. Jim Corbett of Kumaon,
the first extended biography of the great man, was
originally published in 1979 and remains an important and
pioneering source book. It evokes Corbett s life and
world with unrivalled knowledge and authenticity, perhaps
because the author too belonged to the mountains of
Kumaon and Garhwal so loved by Corbett. Jim Corbett of
Kumaon has been a great favourite of Corbett fans for
many years.

Centering his analysis in the dynamic forces of modern
East Asian history, Kuan-Hsing Chen recasts cultural
studies as a politically urgent global endeavor. He
argues that the intellectual and subjective work of
decolonization begun across East Asia after the Second
World War was stalled by the cold war. At the same time,
