   1 Granovetter, Mark
Society and economy : framework and principles / Mark
Granovetter.-- Massachusetts: The Belknap Press of
Harvard University Press, 2017.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
ISBN : 9780674975217.
306 GRA 145753
A work of exceptional ambition by the founder of modern
economic sociology, this first full account of Mark
Granovetter’s ideas stresses that the economy is not a
sphere separate from other human activities but is deeply
embedded in social relations and subject to the same
emotions, ideas, and constraints as religion, science,
politics, or law.

Global cities and global order / Simon Curtis.-- Oxford:
Oxford University Press, 2016.
ISBN : 9780198744016.
307.76 CUR 145757
This book argues that we must understand the rise of the
global city as part of a wider process of the
transformation of international political order, and of
the character of international society. Global cities are
an inscription of the ideals of a market society in
space, constructed and defended at the level of
international society. They embody the ascendance of a
set of liberal principles at a certain moment in history-
a moment related to the hegemonic status of leading
states in the second half of the twentieth century, and
the ability of those states to shape international norms.
But the evolution of these urban forms has also reflected
the tendency for deregulated markets to generate
inequality and polarization: these features are also
inscribed in the spaces of global cities.

Rethinking state politics in India Rethinking state
politics in India : regions within regions / Ashutosh
Kumar.--2nd ed.-- New York: Routledge, 2017.
xiv, 505p.,22cm.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
ISBN : 9781138282834.
324.254084 KUM 145786
This book examines the changing configurations of state
politics in India. Focusing on identity politics and
development, it explores the specificities of the regions
within states - not merely as politico-administrative
constructs but also as conceived in historical,
geographic, economic, sociological or cultural terms.
Adopting a comparative approach, the book looks at
alternative theoretical approaches - the quest for
homeland, identity, caste politics and public policy.
This second edition includes a new introduction that
updates the research in the area, while further
developing the theoretical framework.

Profit and gift in the digital economy / Dave Elder-Vass.
-- Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2016.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
ISBN : 9781316509388.
330 ELD 145781
Our economy is neither overwhelmingly capitalist, as
Marxist political economists argue, nor overwhelmingly a
market economy, as mainstream economists assume. Both
approaches ignore vast swathes of the economy, including
the gift, collaborative and hybrid forms that coexist
with more conventional capitalism in the new digital
economy. Drawing on economic sociology, anthropology of
the gift and heterodox economics, this book proposes a
ground-breaking framework for analyzing diverse economic
systems: a political economy of practices. The framework
is used to analyze Apple, Wikipedia, Google, YouTube and
Facebook, showing how different complexes of
appropriative practices bring about radically different
economic outcomes.

The History of economic ideas : economic thought in
contemporary context / Brandon Dupont.-- New York:
Routledge, 2017.
Includes bibliographical references and index
ISBN : 9781138101333.
330.09 DUP 145799
The book surveys this topics that are important for the
understanding of contemporary economic issues, including
the ethical foundations of modern economics, ideas
regarding property rights, price theory, money and
interest, public finance, the theories of business cycles
and economic growth, international trade, and issues
related to population and resource use. The book’s
originality lies in its overall organization, which
allows readers to explore the development of ideas on a
specific topic in detail. Yet it is brief enough to use
alongside the original writings on which it is based.

From the Mekong River Basin to the Central Asian steppe,
China is flexing its economic muscles for strategic ends.
By setting up new regional financial institutions,
Beijing is challenging the post-World War II order

lines-a New Silk Road across Eurasia and through the
South China Sea and Indian Ocean-China aims to draw its
neighbors ever tighter into its embrace. Combining a
geopolitical overview with on-the-ground reportage from a
dozen countries, this book offers a fresh perspective on
the rise of China- and what it means for the future of

practices since the colonial period through to the Post-
Liberalization phase in India. It also incorporates the
key public policy debates on the progress of India’s
agricultural development with the aim of formulating
spatially integrated strategies to reduce rapid rise in
the regional convergence and to promote equitable
distribution of strategic government investment.

This book aims to reveal, through data and the use of
simple economic concepts, the mistakes that abound in the
discourses surrounding the steel industry. Its main
objective is to dispel the many myths that are
perpetuated by policy makers and the industry in order to
benefit a small coterie of large firms, and discusses how
through such favors the Indian steel industry is set to
lose out in terms of margins, products and growth in
technology. It covers the unique role of the Indian state
in the development of the broad base of steel production,
and observes the change in the direction in policy, which
reverses the economic equality of the past and promotes
collusion among oligopolies leading to overexpansion in

graphical approach to explain the economic theory that
underlies a CGE model, and provides results from simple,
small-scale CGE models to illustrate the links between
theory and model outcomes.

Speculation : a history of the fine line between gambling

x, 335p., 25cm.
Includes bibliographical references and index.

What is the difference between a speculator and a
gambler? How can we tell the difference between a good
investment and a bad one, and encourage the former while
guarding against the latter? If we can-t prevent over-
speculation, what moral code can be applied when it leads
to the loss of thousands of people-s savings, jobs, and
security? In this book, the author offers a sweeping
historical examination of this debate, showing that, not
only have courts always struggled to draw a line between
investment and gambling, but that the passionate
arguments produced on all sides have almost certainly
been made before. It synthesizes a complicated but
important dilemma that intersects with critical themes at
the heart of the nation - the ability of our courts to
ensure justice and protection.

This work seeks to determine the roles played by the
paramount judiciary in the Indian polity between 1937 and
1964. The discussion starts with an examination of the
Federal Court, the establishment of which in 1937 brought
into existence India’s first central judicial institution.
After a consideration of events leading to the creation
of the Federal Court, the nature of its jurisdiction and
representative decisions are analyzed. Other matters
considered include the relationship of the Federal Court
with the Privy Council, and the unsuccessful efforts made
to empower the Federal Court with a jurisdiction to hear
civil appeals.

examines the Canton trade networks that helped to shape
the modern world through the lens of the prominent
Chinese merchant Houqua, whose trading network and
financial connections stretched from China to India,
America and Britain. The success of Houqua and Co. in
configuring its networks in the fluid context of the
early nineteenth century remains instructive today, as
the contemporary balance of political power renders the
imposition of a West-centric world system increasingly
problematic, and requires international traders to adapt
to a new world order in which China, once again, occupies
center stage.

This book articulates the theory, heuristic principles,
and clinical techniques of psychoanalytic field theory.
The author describes the historical, philosophical and
clinical contexts for the development of field theory in
South America, North America and Europe. In the book, a
fabricated analytic process is offered in which an
analyzed, Zoe, is engaged in three analyses. Each
analyst works with the techniques of one of the three
field theories. The author conveys the diverging thought
processes and technical choices of each analyst and the
potentially different therapeutic outcomes of the
application of each model. In the final chapters, Katz
moves beyond the specific field theories to articulate a
concept of a general field which underlies the three
field concepts.

Companies are increasingly championed for their capacity
to solve social problems. Yet what happens when such
goods as water, education, and health are sold by
companies - rather than donated by nonprofits - to the
disadvantaged and when the pursuit of mission becomes
entangled with the pursuit of profit? In Caring
Capitalism, Emily Barman answers these important
questions, showing how the meaning of social value in an
era of caring capitalism gets mediated by the work of
-value entrepreneurs- and the tools they create to gauge
companies- social impact. By shedding light on these
pivotal actors and the cultural and material contexts in
which they operate, Caring Capitalism accounts for the
unexpected consequences of this new vision of the market
for the pursuit of social value.
