   1 Smith, Justin E H
The Philosopher : a history in six types / Justin E H
Smith.-- Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2017.
xii, 272p. , 22cm.
ISBN : 9780691178462.
100 SMI 145666
What would the global history of philosophy look like if
it were told not as a story of ideas but as a series of
job descriptions--ones that might have been used to fill
the position of philosopher at different times and places
over the past 2,500 years? The Philosopher does just
that, providing a new way of looking at the history of
philosophy by bringing to life six kinds of figures who
have occupied the role of philosopher in a wide range of
societies around the world over the millennia--the
Natural Philosopher, the Sage, the Gadfly, the Ascetic,
the Mandarin, and the Courtier.

Sociological research is hard enough already--you don-t
need to make it even harder by smashing about like a bull
in a china shop, not knowing what you-re doing or where
you-re heading. Or so says John Levi Martin in this
witty, insightful, and desperately needed primer on how
to practice rigorous social science. Thinking Through
Methods focuses on the practical decisions that you will
need to make as a researcher--where the data you are
working with comes from and how that data relates to all
the possible data you could have gathered. This is a
user-s guide to sociological research, designed to be
used at both the undergraduate and graduate level.

What is marketization, and what are its effects? This
book uses employment services in Denmark, Germany, and
Great Britain as a window to explore the rise of market
mechanisms. The authors discuss the internal workings of
these markets and the organizations that provide the
services. This book gives readers new tools to analyse
market competition and its effects. It provides a new
conceptualization of the markets themselves, the dilemmas
and tradeoffs that they generate, and the differing
services and workplaces that result.

The Euro trap : on bursting bubbles, budgets, and beliefs

xix, 380p. , 24cm.
ISBN : 9780198791447.
332.494 SIN 145627
This book offers a critical assessment of the history of
the euro, its crisis, and the rescue measures taken by
the European Central Bank and the community of states. It
describes what the author considers to be a dangerous
political process that undermines both the market economy
and democracy, without solving southern Europe-s
competitiveness problem. The book argues that the
Eurozone has to rethink its rules of conduct by limiting
the role of the ECB, exiting the regime of soft budget
constraints and writing off public and bank debt to help
the crisis countries breathe again.

This book is a cornerstone of economic thinking, and

society. From the first day of a principles-level course
to the most advanced academic literature, costs play a
vital role in virtually all behaviors and economic
outcomes. How we make choices, why we trade, and how we
build institutions and social orders are all problems
that can be explained in light of the costs we face.

processes. Adopting a global perspective, it includes

service industry activity has often been ignored in
current understandings of a green economic transition.

The book goes on to develop a new theory, called the
Entity Maximisation and Sustainability Model. Under this
model, directors are to endeavour to increase the overall
long-run market value of the corporation as an entity. At
the same time as maximising wealth, directors have to
ensure that the corporation survives and is able to stay
afloat and pursue the development of the corporation-s
position.Postgraduate students in corporate law and
corporate governance, directors, and government
regulators will also find much to interest them in this

   16 Rogers, Jim
The death and life of the music industry in the digital age
/ Jim Rogers.-- New Delhi: Bloomsbury India, 2013.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
ISBN : 9789386250834.
384 ROG 145680
This book challenges the conventional wisdom that the
internet is -killing- the music industry. While
technological innovations have evolved to threaten the
economic health of major transnational music companies,
Rogers illustrates how those same companies have
themselves formulated highly innovative response
strategies to negate the harmful effects of the internet.
In short, it documents how the radical transformative
potential of the internet is being suppressed by legal
and organisational innovations. Grounded in a social
shaping perspective, the Death and Life of the Music
Industry in the Digital Age contends that the internet
has not altered pre-existing power relations in the music
industry where a small handful of very large corporations
have long since established an oligopolist dominance.

A treasure trove of illuminating and entertaining
quotations from the legendary naturalist Here is Charles
Darwin in his own words--the naturalist, traveler,
scientific thinker, and controversial author of On the
Origin of Species, the book that shook the Victorian
world. Featuring hundreds of quotations carefully
selected by world-renowned Darwin biographer Janet
Browne, The Quotable Darwin draws from Darwin-s writings,
letters to friends and family, autobiographical
reminiscences, and private scientific notebooks. It
offers a multifaceted portrait that takes readers through
his youth, the famous voyage of the Beagle, the
development of his thoughts about evolution, his gradual
loss of religious faith, and the time spent turning his
ideas into a well-articulated theory about the natural
origin of all living beings--a theory that dangerously
included the origin of humans.
