The Big book of simulation modeling : multimethod
modeling with AnyLogic 6 / Andrei Borshchev: AnyLogic
North America., 2013.
612p. , 24cm.
ISBN : 9780989573177.
003.3 BOR 145379-145388
The Big Book of Simulation Modeling" is the only book
that comprehensively presents all three methods, or
paradigms, in simulation modeling: Agent Based, System
Dynamics, and Discrete Event. It explains how to choose
the right constructs of the modeling language to create a
representation of a real world system that is suitable
for risk-free dynamic experiments. The book is based on
the modeling languages supported by AnyLogic, the
software tool that enables a modeler to utilize all three
methods and is the only one with the capability to
combine them together in a single model.

   2 Surprenant, Chris W
Kant and the cultivation of virtue / Chris W Surprenant.-
New York: Routledge, 2014.
x,137p. , 24cm.
ISBN : 9780415735209.
170.92 SUR 145317
In this book, the author puts forward an original
position concerning Kant’s practical philosophy and the
intersection between his moral and political philosophy.
Although Kant provides a detailed account of the nature
of morality, the nature of human virtue, and how right
manifests itself in civil society, he does not explain
fully how individuals are able to become virtuous. This
book aims to resolve this problem by showing how an
individual is able to cultivate virtue, the aim of Kant’s
practical philosophy.

The Power of Networks answers questions like these for
the first time in a way that all of us can understand and
use, whether at home, the office, or school. Using simple
language, analogies, stories, hundreds of illustrations,
and no more math than simple addition and multiplication,
Christopher Brinton and Mung Chiang provide a smart but
accessible introduction to the handful of big ideas that
drive the technical and social networks we use every day-
from cellular phone networks and cloud computing to the
Internet and social media platforms.

Managing the reality of virtual organizations / Sandhya
Shekhar.-- India: Springer, 2016.
xxiv, 263p. , 24cm.
(Management for professionals).
ISBN : 9788132227359.
302.35 SHE 145343
This book comes at a time when virtual organizations
(VO), are proliferating exponentially due to the twin
catalysts of globalization and technological enablement.
It provides conceptual frameworks and simple tools for
identifying and addressing the complexities of managing
geographically dispersed, virtually linked organizations,
which may have grown organically or inorganically into a
potpourri of multiple cultures, capabilities and
practices. These can help to scientifically assess the
impact of virtualization, balance the physical with the
virtual and manage risks using early indicators.

(Routledge studies in cultural history , 37).
ISBN : 9781138795624.
305.8924 EWE 145315
This book explores literary and material representations
of Jews, Jewishness and Judaism from antiquity to the
twenty-first century. Gathering leading scholars from
within the field of Jewish Studies, it investigates how
the debates surrounding literary and material images
within Judaism and in Jewish life are part of an on-going
strategy of image management - the urge to shape, direct,
authorize and contain Jewish literary and material images
and encounters with those images - a strategy both
consciously and unconsciously undertaken within
multifarious arenas of Jewish life from early modern
German lands to late twentieth-century North London, late
Antique Byzantium to the curation of contemporary
Holocaust exhibitions.

core of sustained competitive advantage of these

direct spending and in the newer areas of transfer
programs and social insurance. This book acknowledge
those changes. It brings the realities of contemporary
public finance to the classroom.

How can society improve its living standards? What are
the conditions necessary for prosperity? These are the
questions that define the essence of growth theory. In
this user-friendly book, Olivier de la Grandville
provides a fascinating introduction to the theory of
economic growth and shows how many results from this
field are of paramount importance for society. The
classical mechanics of the growth process are carefully
explained, with two chapters devoted to the fundamental
issue of the substitution of labor for capital in the
growth process (co-written with Robert M. Solow, winner
of the Nobel Prize in Economics). The book also addresses
the fundamental question of the optimal investment rate
of an economy.

This book examines India’s naval strategy within the
context of Asian regional security. It investigates the
growing strategic salience of the Indian Navy.The book
provides much needed texture to the abstract debate on
India’s rise by focusing on the changing nature of
India’s maritime orientation, the recent evolution of its
naval strategy, and its emerging defence diplomacy. In
tracing the drift of the Navy from the margins of Delhi’s
national security consciousness to a central position,
analyzing the tension between its maritime possibilities
and the continentalist mind set , and in examining the gap
between the growing external demands for its security
contributions and internal ambivalence, the book offers
rare insights into India’s strategic direction at a
critical moment in the nation’s evolution.

(New horizons in environmental economics).
ISBN : 9781840647792.

This book cleverly integrates the research on welfare
measurement and social accounting in imperfect market
economies. In their previously acclaimed volume, Welfare
Measurement, Sustainability and Green National
Accounting, the authors focused on the external effects
associated with environmental damage and analysed their
role in the context of social accounting. This book
adopts a much broader perspective by analysing a wide
spectrum of resource allocation problems of real-world
market economies.

Madness in civilization : a cultural history of insanity,
from the Bible to Freud, from the madhouse to modern
medicine / Andrew Scull.-- Princeton: Princeton
University Press, 2015.
448p. , 23cm.
ISBN : 9780691173443.
616.89009 SCU 145375
The loss of reason, a sense of alienation from the
commonsense world we all like to imagine we inhabit, the
shattering emotional turmoil that seizes hold and won-t
let go--these are some of the traits we associate with
madness. Today, mental disturbance is most commonly
viewed through a medical lens, but societies have also
sought to make sense of it through religion or the
supernatural, or by constructing psychological or social
explanations in an effort to tame the demons of unreason.
Madness in Civilization traces the long and complex
history of this affliction and our attempts to treat it.
Beautifully illustrated throughout, Madness in
Civilization takes readers from antiquity to today,
painting a vivid and often harrowing portrait of the
different ways that cultures around the world have
interpreted and responded to the seemingly irrational,
psychotic, and insane.

This book shows how business process management (BPM), as
a management discipline at the intersection of IT and
Business, can help organizations to master digital
innovations and transformations. At the same time, it
discusses how BPM needs to be further developed to
successfully act as a driver for innovation in a digital
world. In recent decades, BPM has proven extremely
successful in managing both continuous and radical
improvements in many sectors and business areas. While
the digital age brings tremendous new opportunities, it
also brings the specific challenge of correctly
positioning and scoping BPM in organizations. This book
shows how to leverage BPM to drive business innovation in
the digital age.

Despite philosophers’ growing interest in the relation
between philosophy and literature in general, over the
last few decades comparatively few studies have been
published dealing more narrowly with the literary aspects
of philosophical texts. The relationship between
philosophy and literature is too often taken to be
"literature as philosophy" and very rarely "philosophy as
literature." It is the dissatisfaction with this one-
sidedness that lies at the heart of the present book.
