   1 Monteiro, Stephen
The Fabric of interface : mobile media, design, and
gender / Stephen Monteiro.-- Cambridge: The MIT Press,
x, 191p. , 24cm.
ISBN : 9780262037006.
004.16 MON 146810
In this book, the author argues that our everyday digital
practice has taken on traits common to textile and
needlecraft culture. Our smart phones and tablets use
some of the same skills-manual dexterity, pattern making,
and linking-required by the handloom, the needlepoint
hoop, and the lap-sized quilting frame. Monteiro goes on
to argue that the capacity of textile metaphors to
describe computing (weaving code, threaded discussions,
zipped files, software patches, switch fabrics)
represents deeper connections between digital
communication and what has been called -home craft- or
-women-s work.-

Business ethics 3.0 : the new integral ethics from the
perspective of a CEO / Erhard Meyer-Galow.-- Berlin: De

Business Ethics 3.0, by Erhard Meyer-Galow provides a
much needed beacon of light to a segment of our society
that seem to be sinking deeper and deeper into darkness.
The term "business ethics", once an important topic
within the business community, has slowly descended
through the fog of profitable ends justifying
unprincipled means to become nothing more than a self-
contradictory oxymoron -- especially among large
international corporations. In Business Ethics 3.0,
Erhard Meyer-Galow has taken a fresh approach that
appeals to individual personal growth rather than the
usual proffering of academic arguments that are not
implementable in the real world of relentless
Machiavellian competition. Only through raising and
improving individual awareness and responsibility can
real long-term change have a chance of developing.

of view. This allows students to discover key concepts

academically and shaped empirically. Public Policy in
Action gives a detailed breakdown of all stages of the
policy process by discussing the emergence of policy
problems affecting the agenda, the formulation of policy
alternatives, the decision-making process, the
implementation of policies and the progression to
evaluation, learning and policy change. The authors also
outline the sets of factors which influence the steps of
the policy process internally and externally.

The Contentious public sphere : law, media, and

xvii, 284p. , 24cm.
ISBN : 9780691166865.
320.951 LEI 146809
This book shows how the Chinese state drew on law,
the media, and the Internet to further an authoritarian
project of modernization, but in so doing, inadvertently
created a nationwide public sphere in China--one the
state must now endeavor to control. Lei examines the
influence this unruly sphere has had on Chinese politics
and the ways that the state has responded. She also shows
that the development of the public sphere in China has
provided an unprecedented forum for citizens to influence
the public agenda, demand accountability from the
government, and organize around the concepts of law and
rights. She demonstrates how citizens came to understand
themselves as legal subjects, how legal and media
professionals began to collaborate in unexpected ways,
and how existing conditions of political and economic
fragmentation created unintended opportunities for
political critique, particularly with the rise of the

The Economy of South Asia : from 1950 to the present. /

xv, 351p. , 21cm.
(Palgrave studies in economic history).
ISBN : 9783319547190.
330.954 ROY 146702
This book explores the historical roots of rapid economic
growth in South Asia, with reference to politics,
markets, resources, and the world economy. Roy posits
that, after an initial slow period of growth between 1950
and the 1980s, the region has been growing rapidly and
fast catching up with the world on average levels of
living. Why did this turnaround happen? Does it matter?
Is it sustainable? The author answers these questions by
drawing connections, comparisons, and parallels between
the five large countries in the region: India, Pakistan,
Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Nepal. It shows why, despite
differences in political experience between these
countries, similarities in resources and markets could
produce similar trajectories.

x,133p. , 22cm.
ISBN : 9780262036931.
338.604801 HAR 146013, 146815
This book reviews the theoretical research on unlawful
collusion, with a focus on two issues: the impact of
competition law and enforcement on whether, how long, and
how much firms collude, and the optimal design of
competition law and enforcement. It begins by discussing
general issues that arise when models of collusion take
into account competition law and enforcement. It goes on
to consider game-theoretic models that encompass the
probability of detection and penalties incurred when
convicted, and examines how these policy instruments
affect the frequency of cartels, cartel duration, cartel
participation, and collusive prices. The book then
considers the design of competition law and enforcement,
examining such topics as the formula for penalties and
leniency programs. The book concludes with suggested
future lines of inquiry into illegal collusion.

It illuminates the unity of the overall agenda of the

the separate strands discernible in the discussion, and
the relationship of the ethics/literature discussion to

This book provides a systematic guide to the current

authorship and content. The volume commences with an
assessment of tourism-s global environmental, e.g.
climate, emissions, energy use, biodiversity, water use,
land use, and socio-economic effects, e.g. economic
impacts, employment and livelihoods, culture. This then
provides the context for the following sections that
describe the main theoretical frameworks and constructs
that inform tourism and sustainability, management tools
and approaches, and the approaches used in different
tourism and travel industry sectors. The book concludes
by examining emerging and future concerns in tourism and
sustainability such as peak-oil, post-carbon tourism,
green economy and transition tourism.
