and public policies / Nadereh Chamlou and Massoud

In the aftermath of the Arab Spring, and in light of
socio economic and geopolitical challenges facing
governments old and new, women-s rights and empowerment
have gained new urgency and relevance. Groups in power,
or groups contesting for power, are more conservative
than expected, and there are serious threats to roll back
some of the gains women had achieved over the past 20-30
years on economic and social fronts.

East of India, South of China : Sino-Indian encounters in
Southeast Asia / Amitav Acharya.-- New Delhi: Oxford

Includes bibliographical references and index.
ISBN : 9780199461141.

The book shows how India’s pre-eminent role in designing
the regional architecture in Asia was diluted after the
Bandung era, especially post the Sino-India War in 1962,
and how, by the 1980s, it had become a political and
diplomatic non-entity-if not a pariah-in Southeast Asia
even as China emerged as a dominant regional power over
the next three decades. The last two decades, however,
have seen India making substantial inroads into the ASEAN
scene with its Look East policies, altering power
equations in the region to no small degree.

Includes bibliographical references and index.

This book analyses the evolution of the French model of
capitalism in relation to the instability of socio-
political compromises. This book also analyses the
various attempts at reforming the French model since the
1980s, when the left tried briefly to orient the French
political economy in a social-democratic/socialist
direction before changing course and opting for a more
orthodox macroeconomic and structural policy direction.
The attempts of governments of the right to implement a
radically neo-liberal structural policy also failed in
the face of a significant social opposition.

Globalization and labour reforms : the politics of
interest groups and partisan governments / Zaad Mahmood.-
New Delhi: Oxford University Press, 2017.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
ISBN : 9780199475278.
331.110954 MAH 145697
Through a careful study of labour market reforms across
subnational states of India, it draws attention to the
continuing relevance of local politics in influencing
public policy. Drawing on the evidence from the pairs of
institutionally and economically alike states, Gujarat-
Maharashtra and West Bengal-Andhra Pradesh, this book
shows that despite pressures of convergence under
conditions of globalization, reforms vary across states,
depending on partisan governments, dynamics of interest
group negotiations, and party competition. Using both
qualitative and quantitative analyses, the book argues
that who governs matters for how globalization unfolds
in any society, and that public policies continue to be
nuanced, if not shaped, by politics.

Since 2007, the repeated financial crises around the
world have brought to the headlines financial practices
and models considered to fuel the economic instabilities.
Deep Dive into Financial Models: Modeling Risk and
Uncertainty comes handy in demystifying the underlying
quantitative finance concepts. With a limited use of
mathematical formalism, the book explains thoroughly the
models, their hypotheses, principles and other building
blocks. A particular care is given to model limitations
and their misuse for investment strategies, asset
pricing, or risk management. Its reader-friendly nature

Global derivative debacles : from theory to malpractice /
Laurent L Jacque.--2nd.ed.-- New Jersey: World Scientific
, 2015.
xxvii,338p., 24cm.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
ISBN : 9789814663243.
332.6457 MAL 145619
This book analyzes in depth all major derivatives
debacles of the last half century including the multi-
billion losses and/or bankruptcy of Metallgesellschaft
(1994), Barings Bank (1995), Long Term Capital Management
(1998), Amaranth (2006), Society General (2008) and
AIG (2008). It unlocks the secrets of derivatives by
telling the stories of institutions which played in the
derivative market and lost big. For some of these
unfortunate organizations it was daring but flawed
financial engineering which brought them havoc. For
others it was unbridled speculation perpetrated by rogue
traders whose unchecked fraud brought their house down.
Each chapter deals with one derivative debacle, providing
a rigorous and comprehensive but non-technical
elucidation of what happened.

What does innovation mean to and in India? What are the
predominant sites of activity where Indians innovate, and
under what situations do they work or fail? This book
addresses these all-important questions arising within
diverse Indian contexts: informal economy, low-cost
settings, large business groups, entertainment and
copyright industries, an evolving pharm sector, a poorly
organized and appallingly underfunded public health
system, social enterprises for the urban poor, and
innovations-for-the-millions. It also provides critical
insights on innovation in general, the most important of
which being the highly context-specific, context-driven
character of the innovation project.

This volume contains eight papers written by Adam
Brandenburger and his co-authors over a period of 25
years. These papers are part of a program to reconstruct
game theory in order to make how players reason about a
game a central feature of the theory. The program - now
called epistemic game theory - extends the classical
definition of a game model to include not only the game
matrix or game tree, but also a description of how the
players reason about one another including their
reasoning about other players- reasoning. With this
richer mathematical framework, it becomes possible to

Presenting all of Hegel-s writings on and about India,
this work shows how much effort Hegel expended on what he
ultimately characterized merely as fantastic, subjective,
wild, dreamy, frenzied, absurd, and repetitive. If Indian
art, religion, and philosophy, are so grossly inadequate,
what explains his life-long fascination in this
unparalleled way? This reinterpretation of Hegel argues
that Indian thought haunted Hegel, representing a sort of
nemesis to his own philosophy.
