This book shows students how to be critical consumers of
research and to appreciate the power of methodology as it
shapes the research question, the use of theory in the
study, the methods used, and how the outcomes are
reported. The book starts with what it means to be a
critical and uncritical reader of research, followed by a
detailed chapter on methodology, and then proceeds to a
discussion of each component of a research article as it
is informed by the methodology. The book encourages
readers to select an article from their discipline,
learning along the way how to assess each component of
the article and come to a judgment of its rigor or
quality as a scholarly report.

India-s most dynamic and prosperous states, Punjab, which
has provided the country with a much-needed degree of
food security. The book address the question of why the
structural transformation of Punjab-s economy has fallen
into the middle-income trap. Each investigates the policy
constraints influencing the relative stagnation of the
economy and suggests appropriate measures for alleviating
them. By integrating theoretical constructs and new
evidence, the authoritative contributions diagnose the
nature of the current problems and offer practical
solutions. They cover important issues such as the crisis
of agrarian transition, agrarian markets and distributive
justice, employment growth and transition to non-
agriculture sectors, fiscal policy, external factors in
economic transformation, and perspectives on rejuvenating
the state-s economy.

In The Language of Global Success, Tsedal Neeley provides
an in-depth look at a single organization--the high-tech
giant Rakuten--in the five years following its English
lingua franca mandate. Neeley-s behind-the-scenes account
explores how language shapes the ways in which employees
who work in global organizations communicate and
negotiate linguistic and cultural differences. Drawing on
650 interviews conducted across Rakuten-s locations in
Brazil, France, Germany, Indonesia, Japan, Taiwan,
Thailand, and the United States, Neeley argues that an
organization-s lingua franca is the catalyst by which all
employees become some kind of "expat"--someone detached
from their mother tongue or home culture.

Consumers have, to a large extent, become their own
producers, they are more aware of marketing and are
active in adding value to the products and experiences
they want. By assessing customers as active agents rather
than passive consumers, Bjoern Bjerke explores
alternative ways of marketing for new businesses and
social entrepreneurial ventures. This book first presents
the dominant approach to marketing theory used for the
last half a century. After that, it presents an
alternative approach to marketing theory by emphasizing
how new infrastructures and organizations, including
online platforms, influence new ways of linking the
formal and informal economies together. Building on
fundamental theories of science and methodological
issues, Bjerke creates useful theoretical conceptions
that can develop a greater connection between practice

In this cross-cultural history of narrative cinema and
media from the 1910s to the 1930s, leading and emergent
scholars explore the transnational crossings and
exchanges that occurred in early cinema between the two
world wars. Drawing on film archives from around the
world, this volume advances the premise that silent
cinema freely crossed national borders and linguistic
thresholds in ways that became far less possible after
the emergence of sound. These essays address important
questions about the uneven forces geographic, economic,
political, psychological, textual and experiential that
underscore a non-linear approach to film history. The
-messiness- of film history, as demonstrated here, opens
a new realm of inquiry into unexpected political, social
and aesthetic crossings of silent cinema.
