   1 Shapira, Reuven
Mismanagement, "jumpers", and morality : covertly
concealed managerial ignorance and immoral careerism in
industrial organizations / Reuven Shapira.-- New York:
Routledge, 2017.
xviii, 230p.,24cm.
(Routledge studies in business ethics ,10).

Management is taught as a discipline, which can be
applied in any organization, including those in which the
employees are highly skilled and highly trained. In this
context the `in-experienced- manager-s tendency is to
conceal his ignorance or to assume she has all the
answers. This ethnography illustrates this all too
frequent behavior but also shows how this difficult
situation can be managed with ethics and aplomb. This book
is a must read for any Human Resources Manager filling
such a position or any Manager taking up such a role and
perhaps even more importantly, for any Professional
managed by someone without your professional expertise.

xxvi, 318p. , 23cm.
ISBN : 9781138103467.

This book looks at the politics of communication and
culture in contemporary South Asia. It explores
languages, signs and symbols reflective of current
mythologies that underpin instances of performance in
present-day India and its neighbouring countries. From
gender performances and stage depictions to protest
movements, folk songs to cinematic reconstructions and
elections to war-torn regions, the chapters in the book
bring the multiple voices embedded within the grand
theatre of popular performance and the cultural landscape
of the region to the fore.

Western foundations of the caste system / Farek Martin.--
New York: Springer, 2017.
xi, 274p. , 22cm.
ISBN : 9783319387604.
305.56880954 FAR 145812
This book argues that the dominant descriptions of the
caste system are rooted in the Western Christian
experience of India. The dominant descriptions of the
caste system that we have today are results of
originally Christian themes and questions. The authors
show how this hypothesis can be applied beyond South Asia
to the diasporas cultures that have made a home in
Western countries, and how the inheritance of caste
studies as structured by European scholarship impacts on
our understanding of contemporary India and the Indians
of the diaspora.

Includes bibliographical references and index.
ISBN : 9780521177009.
339.5301 CHA 145765
By teaching from first principles instead, this advanced
undergraduate textbook builds on a simple, clear monetary
model and applies this framework consistently to a wide
variety of monetary questions. Starting with the case in
which trade is mutually beneficial, the book demonstrates
that money makes people better off, and that government
money competes against other means of payments, including
other types of government money. After developing each of
these topics, the book tackles the issue of money
competing against other stores of value, examining issues
associated with trade, finance, and modern banking. The
book then moves from simple economies to modern
economies, addressing the role banks play in making more
trades possible, concluding with the information problems
plaguing modern banking, which result in financial

the impact of the globalization on local issues and their
influence on governance in the region. Through grassroots
studies, the volume also traces how the last 20 years

illiteracy and poor health to flourishing economies,
improved savings, greater investments and stronger human

increasing recognition of the interdependencies operating
in project execution - cross-functional working, spanning
organizational boundaries and engagement with wider
organizational networks in successful project management.
This book makes a significant contribution to
understanding these interdependencies and how they are
manifest in important topics of project management such
as risk and governance.

Gender, nation and popular film in India : globalizing
muscular nationalism / Sikata Banerjee.-- London:
Routledge, 2017.

(Routledge contemporary South Asia series , 117).
ISBN : 9781138653993.
791.436580954 BAN 145809
This book unpacks a particular gendered vision of nation
in the modern Indian context by drawing on popular films.
This muscular nationalism is an intersection of a
specific vision of masculinity with the political
doctrine of nationalism. The idea of nation is animated
by an idea of manhood associated with martial prowess,
muscular strength and toughness, but coupled with the
image and construct of virtuous woman - a gendered binary
of martial man and chaste woman. The author skillfully
and convincingly draws together issues of political
economy, including globalization and neoliberalism with
majoritarian politics and popular culture, thus showing
how disparate strands intersect and build on each other.
It presents new interpretations of Bollywood films
through the lenses of gender, masculinity and
