This book examines the relations between the material and
political bases of contentious politics and the
construction, diffusion and endurance of contentious
language. Beginning with the language of revolution
developed from the seventeenth to the nineteenth
centuries, it examines contentious language at work, in
gender and race relations and in nationalist and ethnic
movements. It closes with an examination of emotions in
contentious politics, reflecting on the changes in
political language since 9/11 and assessing the impact of
religion and recent innovations in electronic
communication on the language of politics.

This short book provides a succinct and masterly overview
of the history of migration, from the earliest movements
of human beings out of Africa into Asia and Europe to the
present day, exploring along the way those factors that
contribute to the successes and failures of migratory
groups. Separate chapters deal with the migration flows
between Europe and the rest of the world in the 19th and
20th centuries and with the turbulent and complex
migratory history of the Americas.

It also sets forth how marginality is contemporarily
experienced across a variety of communities and groups,
such as scheduled castes, scheduled tribes, peasants,
women, the physically challenged, minorities, and the
culturally deprived, as well as how they cumulate across
the life course. Following an interdisciplinary approach,
the book examines the lived experiences and narratives of
enduring marginality and injustice. Besides providing
insights into the contours of marginality embedded across
contemporary South Asia, the book also provokes an
engaging overview of advocacy for coherent justice. It
will be appealing and appropriate to academicians,

Religion is a major force in contemporary society. It is
also one of the least understood social and political
influences on individuals and communities. In this
innovative collection of original essays and classic
readings, experts explore the significance of
contemporary religiosity: as a source of meaning and
motivation, how it unites and divides us, and how it is
used politically and culturally. Readers will be
introduced to the broad debates in ways that will equip
them to analyze, discuss, and make their own judgments
about religion and society. This book should be read by
anyone interested in understanding religion as a central
source of meaning and politics, and is ideally suited for
undergraduate teaching on religion and social issues and
from a global perspective.

In combining practice and theory, this textbook provides
a management perspective on the -business case- for
sustainability. Drawing on examples from 20 frontrunner
companies located in the Netherlands, it builds upon a
unique research project in which CEOs and middle-managers
gave access not only to their decision-making process,
but also revealed how their perceptions shaped the
transition process. This book identifies four different
archetypes of business cases and related business models
that business students and managers can use to identify
phases and related attitudes towards sustainability.

There have been dramatic shifts in the behavior of labor
markets and the conduct of industrial relations in the
last century. This volume explores these changes in the
context of four very different societies: Germany,
Sweden, Britain and Japan. However, despite their
manifest differences, the author demonstrates that for
long periods their labor markets were similar in many
crucial respects. The book discusses the failure of neo-
corporatism in Britain in the 1970s and the subsequent
rise of Thatcherism, the rise of Japan as a model for
orderly industrial relations in the 1970s and the
collapse of the German and the success of the Swedish
labor markets in the 1930.

In pre-industrial England most production took place in
the home. Some of this involved the production of goods
for commercial sale, but items were also produced for use
by the household itself. The household was also the focus
for the consumption of goods that had been made
elsewhere. This book uses evidence from households in the
countries of Cornwall and Kent to explore changes in
production and consumption and their interrelationship.

This book aims to provide a philosophical underpinning to
translation and relate translation to development. The
second aim flows from the first section s argument that
societies emerge out of, amongst others, complex
translational interactions amongst individuals. It will
do so by conceptualising translation from a complexity
and emergence point of view and relating this view on
emergent semiotics to some of the most recent social
research. It will further fulfill its aims by providing
empirical data from the South African context concerning
the relationship between translation and development.

Based on his seminal work on the functions of the
prefrontal cortex in decision-making, planning,
creativity, working memory, and language, Professor
Fuster argues that the liberty or freedom to choose
between alternatives is a function of the cerebral
cortex, under prefrontal control, in its reciprocal
interaction with the environment. Freedom is therefore
inseparable from that circular relationship. The
Neuroscience of Freedom and Creativity is a fascinating
inquiry into the cerebral foundation of our ability to
choose between alternative actions and to freely lead
creative plans to their goal.

Malcolm Warner, one of the leading authorities on

future of Chinese management. The first part of the work
examines the history of management practices in the
middle Kingdome, outlining the influence of traditional
Chinese values, especially the Confucian inheritance, and
the legacy of the imperial bureaucracy with its
meritocratic examination system, as well as the role of
industrialization and the influx of foreign-owned
businesses in the late nineteenth century and the
twentieth century. It next goes on to consider the
current state of China’s management, showing how a new
breed of manager has evolved since the beginning of Deng
Xiaoping’s reforms in the late 1970s and 1980s.

This book addresses issues in the current literature on
corporate finance using historical evidence. In
particular it looks at the role of universal banks in
relaxing the credit constraints of firms, supervising
managers and stabilizing share prices. The key issues is
whether the Anglo-American asset based financing is more
efective than the main-bank approach used in Germany and
Japan. Earlier studies have found that firms with a close
relationship with a major bank have high market value
compared to book value, although it is difficult to
determine whether this is cause or effect.

Marketing Management challenges the traditional view of

involving most personnel as part-time marketers. The
authors argue that every company or institution must

intelligence, value creation and value generation.
Adopting a global approach, the book focuses on value
