   1 Stirling, Wynn C.
Theory of social choice on networks : preference,
aggregation, and coordination / Wynn C Stirling.--
Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2016.
xxiii,202p., 23.5cm.
(Theory of social choice on networks).
ISBN : 9781107165168.
003.72 STI 145778
Classical social choice theory relies heavily on the
assumption that all individuals have fixed preference
orderings. This highly original book presents a new
theory of social preferences that explicitly accounts for
important social phenomena such as coordination,
compromise, negotiation and altruism. Drawing on
cybernetics and network theory, it extends classical
social choice theory by constructing a framework that
allows for dynamic preferences that are modulated by the
situation-dependent social influence that they exert on
each other. In this way the book shows how members of a
social network may modulate their preferences to account
for social context. This important expansion of social
choice theory will be of interest to readers in a wide
variety of disciplines, including economists and
political scientists concerned with choice theory as well
as computer scientists and engineer.

Global capitalism is affected by the malaises of
stagnation, financial fragility, increased income
inequality, growing wealth concentration at the top, and
a vanishing fair social contract. This book focuses on
the incidence of these phenomena in the US, UK, Greece,
Spain, Chile, South Africa, Australia, China, and other
countries. The book looks at the effects of IMF-ECB led
austerity policies in Europe. It examines concrete
country and global conditions combining theory, country
studies, historical evidence, and international
comparative analysis. The book also proposes new policy
priorities to restore stability, reduce inequality, and
consolidate democracy in 21st century capitalism.

ISBN : 9789813142435.

This book introduces the readers to the multi-faceted art
of managing patent portfolios. Patent, taken on its own,
is a powerful legal asset to protect and defend the
differentiation of the technological advancement and
associated products with others. The book aims to explore
the various nuts and bolts of the system such as
alliances and standardisation that allows companies to
man oeuvre their ways around the maze of patents. It
shows how companies can leverage their innovation among
the patent thickets and new business models from patent
alliances and IP intermediaries to their benefits.

Sustainability in accounting education / Maria Cadiz
Dyball, Ian Thomson and Richard M.S.Wilson.-- London:
Routledge, 2014.
ix, 137p. 25cm.
ISBN : 9781138779730.
657.072 DYB 145776
Accounting sustainably involves accounting for and to the
natural environment, and accounting for and to society,
including groups currently oppressed or disadvantaged by
unsustainable processes and practices. This book creates
a compelling case for the inclusion of sustainability at
the heart of accounting educational programs, offering
critical lessons and identifying risks to avoid when
designing accounting programs and courses. Accounting
sustainability has moved from the side-lines of policy
discourses, accounting institutions, professional
accounting practices, and research activities into the
mainstream. The chapters in this proposed book engage in
a critical dialogue to facilitate change in accounting
education for sustainability.

Includes bibliographical references and index.
ISBN : 9781138911628.
658.009 WIT 145719
This book shows how thinking about management has evolved
and changed. It shows how changing social, political and
technological forces have challenged people to think
about management in new ways, and how management thinkers
have responded. Sometimes their responses missed the mark
and occasionally, great ideas about management failed to
be picked up and were lost along the way. It continues
through the Middle Ages, east and west, as people
pondered on how to manage risk and think strategically,
and on the role of business in society. It shows how the
Industrial Revolution led to the emergence of scientific
management, and how political and social events of the
twentieth century shaped management thinking right up to
the present day.

ISBN : 9781472422620.
658.406 RAN 145714
This book addresses two main issues: firstly, how to
investigate and manage problems involving people at work
a task analogous to that of a medical doctor working
with a sick patient, secondly, how to assess and develop
the capability and fitness of an organization - like a
medical doctor who wishes to improve a patient-s health.
The message of this book is clear, that organizations
should not proceed to change any of their policies,
procedures, processes or practices until a systematic
thorough diagnosis of the root cause underpinning the
need to change has taken place.
