This book discusses the most vulnerable aspects of
elderly life health and well-being under the current
conditions of economic and societal change. This volume
explores (a) whether the nature of living arrangements
has a bearing on the health outcomes of the elderly, (b)
Whether the real or perceived economic dependence and
financial vulnerability of the elderly is conditioned by
translation of capabilities into functioning, and (c) The
implied healthcare costs, which are defined as based on
both actual needs and the elderly people’s own perception
of their needs. .

This book examines whether sex work is generative of
value and renders problematic the dimension of °work° in
sex work. It traces the history of sex work through the
colonial and postcolonial period and the transformation
of the role of the state from a penal to a watch-care
model of surveillance in the wake of the AIDS
scourge. With sex workers’ movement in Sonagachi, Kolkata,
defining the context, the book deploys Marxian categories
of use value and exchange value and the dual in concrete
labour and abstract labour to explore the case. It
presents a critical observation on agency that the sex
workers° movement claims to have obtained. Delving into
the case, the book provides a close reading of sex
workers° manifesto to reveal the fault lines that make
incorporation of the prostitute in worker citizen complex

This book provides contexts for viewing the field of
political communication, examines political discourse,
media, and considers political communication-s evolution
inside the altered political communication landscape. The
authors bring together some of the most groundbreaking
scholars in the field to reflect upon their areas of
expertise to address the importance of their areas of
study to the field, the major findings to date, including
areas of scholarly disagreement, on the topics, the
authors- perspectives, and unanswered questions for
future research to address. Their answers reveal that
political communication is a hybrid with complex
ancestry, permeable boundaries and interests that overlap
with those of related fields such as political sociology,
public opinion, rhetoric, neuroscience and the new hybrid
on the quad, media psychology.

In this book, the author analyzes and explains what the
Obama Doctrine in foreign policy actually is, and maps
out the competing visions on offer from the Republican
Party. He contends that Obama-s policy of international
retrenchment is in large part a function of his emphasis
on achieving domestic policy goals. The author explains
that within the Republican Party, there are two basic
impulses vying with each other: neo-isolationism and
forceful internationalism. He subdivides each impulse
into the specific agenda of the various factions within
the party: Tea Party nationalists, neoconservatives,
Republican internationalists, and anti-interventionists.
The Obama Doctrine not only provides a sharp appraisal of
foreign policy in the Obama era, it lays out an
alternative approach to marshaling American power that
will help shape the foreign policy debate in the years to

This book brings together the authors- joint papers from
over a period of more than twenty years. The collection
includes seven papers, each of which presents a novel and
rigorous model in Economic Theory. All of the models are
within the domain of implementation and mechanism design
theories. These theories attempt to explain how incentive
schemes and organizations can be designed with the goal
of inducing agents to behave according to the designer-s
(principal-s) objectives. The authors inject into each
model an element which conflicts with the standard notion
of full rationality, demonstrating how such elements can
dramatically change the mechanism design problem.

China and India, the two largest developing countries,

providing comprehensive analyses scoping varied economic
issues. This volumes set covers both China-s and India-s
strategies and objectives in international governance,
their bilateral and multilateral trade agreement
negotiations, financial liberalization, growth prospects,

upgrading, as well as environmental and other social
issues. The set collects papers (most unpublished until

This book addresses this highly consequential question by
focusing on a specific empirical puzzle - policy
variation across Indian states in the competition for
private industrial investment, a phenomenon that came to
the fore after the country adopted market reforms in
1991. Through the analysis of investment policies, this
book offers a novel explanation, which links social
identity, class, and economic policy outcomes. Its main
findings highlight a link between pro-business policies
and exclusionary political trends in India-s high growth
phase, and offer a sobering perspective on the current
model of growth in the country. It adds to our
understanding of Indian political economy as well as to
the dynamics of economic development in poor democracies.

The immune system is central to human health and the
focus of much medical research. Growing understanding of
the immune system, and especially the creation of immune
memory (long lasting protection), which can be harnessed
in the design of vaccines, have been major breakthroughs
in medicine. Paul Klenerman describes the immune system,
and how it works in health and disease. In particular he
focuses on the human immune system, considering how it
evolved, the basic rules that govern its behaviour, and
the major health threats where it is important.

There are three stages to outsourcing: The first occurred
at the dawn of industrial era in the 19th century, where
mass production for consumption by many, became the norm
and simple domestic means could not meet such demands.
With the cost of labor soaring in developed countries,
manufacturing of products started moving to countries
like China to take advantage of labor arbitrage in the
1900s. This is the second stage of outsourcing. This book
addresses issues and challenges in the third stage of
outsourcing whose focus is on movement of services at
electronic speed, utilizing the Internet platform.

After 1870, Rome underwent vast changes both as a city
and as an idea - Old Rome, enshrined in myth and legend,
became New Rome, a national capital. Understanding Rome-s
transition is essential to understanding what Europe was,
and the crisis it is now confronting. The author musters
popes, emperors, writers, exiles, and tourists, to weave
a rich fabric of Roman experience. He tells the story of
how, why, and with what consequences that Rome, centre of
Europe and the world, became a national capital: no
longer central and unique, but marginal and very similar
in its problems and its solutions to other modern cities
with a heavy burden of -heritage-.
