Staking claims : the politics of social movements in
contemporary rural India / Uday Chandra and Daniel
Taghioff (ed).-- New Delhi: Oxford University Press, 2016
xi, 374p.,23cm.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
ISBN : 9780199467778.
303.4840954 CHA 145598
The contributions to this volume explore movements
against capital and the state in contemporary rural India
in three complementary ways. First, the simultaneous
material and cultural claims of dispossession the
movements make in particular rural contexts. Second, the
new forms of organization that shape contemporary claim-
making practices as well as political subjectivities in
rural India. Third, the way the academia situates itself
with respect to these movements, their organizations,
activists, and participants. The volume puts forth the
argument that these are modes of political action that
share complex relationships with each other, and may
complement each other at times and yet contradict or even
cancel out another at other times.

   5 Scheidel, Walte
The Great leveler : violence and the history of
inequality from the Stone Age to the twenty-first century
/ Walter Scheidel.-- Princeton: Princeton University
Press, 2017.
xvii, 504p. , 24cm.
ISBN : 9780691165028.
305.512 SCH 145669
Tracing the global history of inequality from the Stone
Age to today, the author shows that inequality never dies
peacefully. Inequality declines when carnage and disaster
strike and increases when peace and stability return.
Ever since humans began to farm, herd livestock, and pass
on their assets to future generations, economic
inequality has been a defining feature of civilization.
Over thousands of years, only violent events have
significantly lessened inequality. The author identifies
and examines these processes, from the crises of the
earliest civilizations to the cataclysmic world wars and
communist revolutions of the twentieth century. An
essential contribution to the debate about inequality,
this book provides important new insights about why
inequality is so persistent--and why it is unlikely to
decline anytime soon.

Understanding India-s new approach to spatial planning
and development : a salient shift? / Sanjeev Vidyarthi,
Shishir Mathur and Sandeep Agrawal.-- New Delhi: Oxford
University Press, 2017.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
ISBN : 9780199472642.
307.12160954 VID 145604
This book brings together the ongoing shift in India-s
approach to spatial planning and development in line with
changes in the country-s polity. Taking the regime change
in the early 1990s as a point of departure, it focuses on
transformations in the distinct, but interrelated,
domains of infrastructure finance and development, local
spatial planning practice, and on-the-ground empirical
outcomes. In addition to covering large cities-such as
Kolkata, Mumbai, and Delhi-that dominate the discourse on
urban India, the authors pay close attention to fine-
grained aspects of the shift away from the well-theorized
Nehruvian planning and development model.

Japanese management : international perspectives /
Hitoshi Iwashita.-- London: Routledge, 2017.
xii, 160p.,24 cm.
(Routledge frontiers of business management,5)
658.00952 IWA 145594
This book provides a new understanding of the
Constellations of logics in Japanese management practices
in Asia and the West. In doing so, the book defines
cultural space through an institutional logic approach.
It argues that logics are culturally interpreted, which
can impose a serious limitation on the institutional
logic approach based on the analysis of Western society.
It reveals that Japanese family logics and Theravada
Buddhism in Asia are strengthening each other and this
directly supports the presupposition of amplification. It
further elaborates on the ongoing constellations of
logics that are continuously formed in relation to
geographical contexts. The book also explains that the
boundaries of organizational communities are not
automatically formed by Japanese expatriates but
constructed through actors profiles, which, in turn,
raises their importance.

Pierre Wack was head of scenario planning at Royal Dutch
Shell Oil in London for just over ten years. He died in
1997. He was a pioneer of what we know today as scenario
planning - an alternative and complement to strategic
planning. Scenarios explore a variety of possible futures
for examining decisions in organizational planning. His
experiences with Eastern thought no doubt shaped his
ability to evolve the scenario method at Shell, and as a
result he was able to lead a team that foresaw the oil
crises of the 1970-s and 80-s.This book will cover the
basic context of his life timeline and attach it to the
development of his thinking about scenario planning over
the course of his career.
