The Leader in You [книги]
Опубликовано на портале: 28-11-2006
Dale Carnegie
New-York: Pocket Book, 1994, 256 с.
Essentially an updating of Dale Carnegie's enormously successful books of the 1930s and '40s ( How to Win Friends and Influence People has thus far sold 30 million copies), this book adds little new material. The major difference is that this effort is more unabashedly focused on influencing people in order to make money, which is logical since the book is aimed at business people. Carnegie's rules are reiterated: be euphoric if you can and, if you can't, at least don't be negative; respect others and try to make them feel praiseworthy and deserving of recognition; listening is just as important as talking, perhaps more so. Business people are advised that they can be leaders if they realize that the pyramidal structure of the corporation is being replaced by teamwork; and if they set goals and keep them constantly in mind, business people have a good chance of realizing their objectives. Thus, while Levine, CEO of Dale Carnegie, and Crom, a vice-president of the firm, offer little that's original, one senses that sales will be excellent.

Javier Guillem Carrau, Raul Compes Lopez
The United States is the leading country in the application of biotechnology to agricultural methods. One of the principal reasons for this is the flexibility of its legislation on Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO). A significant part of its production of soya or corn is already genetically modified, so that its companies need to avoid technical barriers to their exports in the world markets?. In the EU, negative public opinion has contributed to the adoption by the authorities of exigent legislation in order to avoid the possible risks to human health and the environment posed by GMO. The EU’s authorisation procedure for these organisms is long and meticulous.

Furthermore, a compulsory labelling system has been adopted for products, which contain GMO or genetically modified materials (GM materials). In 1998, American interests started to be adversely affected by European legislation. The USA Administration threatened to sue the EU before the World Trade Organisation (WTO). These threats have yet to be followed up with any action. The rules of international trade are regulated by agreements signed up to by the members of the WTO. The EU can argue that its authorisation procedure is designed to reduce the risks to health and the environment. This line of argument is compatible with the Agreements on Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures (SPS) and Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT). The compulsory labelling system is also compatible with the Agreement on TBT if the WTO accepts that a product in which GM material is detected is not similar to a conventional one. The Protocol of Biosafety further supports the EU position since it advocates a cautious approach exemplified by the fact that the Protocol permits consideration of non-scientific risks during risk assessment. However, the Protocol is not yet in force, it is pending ratification by at least 50 countries and, now more than ever, it is uncertain whether the United States will be willing to ratify the Protocol. However, we cannot be sure that there will be future commercial controversy, which will show the contradictions between the commercial agreement and the environmental one.

Glenn Carroll, David J. Teece
New York: Oxford University Press, 1999
This book examines transaction cost economics, the influential theoretical perspective on organizations and industry that was the subject of Oliver Williamson's seminal book,Markets and Hierarchies (1975). Written by leading economists, sociologists, and political scientists, the essays collected here reflect the fruitful intellectual exchange that is occurring across the major social science disciplines. They examine transaction cost economics' general conceptual orientation, its specific theoretical propositions, its applications to policy, and its use in systematic empirical research. The chapters include classic texts, broad review essays, reflective commentaries, and several new contributions to a wide range of topics, including organizations, regulations and law, institutions, strategic management, game theory, entrepreneurship, innovation, finance, and technical information.

Ellis Cashmore's unique, multidisciplinary introduction to sports studies is completely revised, updated, enlarged, and enhanced with new chapters that reflect the changing character of contemporary sport. Already established as a standard text, Cashmore's challenging approach to the study of sport has been improved and augmented with new chapters including: The Mind of an Athlete, a probe into the psychological qualities and processes that separate winners from also-rans; and The Rise and Rise of Celebrities, about celebrity culture and how it has affected the status of athletes.

Mark Casson, a respected economist, sets out in a rigorous but accessible way, the theory that the culture in which a firm operates has a profound effect on its productivity. One of the topics covered by this book - the role of leadership and manipulation of performance in business culture - is very important and has been largely neglected until now.

Manuel Castells, Ida Susser
Изд-во: Blackwell Publishing Company, 2002, 448 с.
Manuel Castells, the most influential urban theorist of our time, has revolutionized modern thought on the processes of advanced capitalism and the generation of inequality. This collection of Castells' classic writing, which also includes two new essays written specifically for this book, reflects the panoramic breadth of his knowledge, the clarity of his approach, and the scholarly rigor and intellectual depth of his theoretical methods. Editor Ida Susser, through her own experience and collaboration with Castells, has selected his most significant essays and placed them within a theoretical and historical context. The Castells Reader on Cities and Social Theory is an essential resource for students and scholars of sociology, anthropology, political science, and urban studies.

New-York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2006, cерия "Studies in Economic Transition", 240 с.
Using a new theoretical framework combining insights from Europeanization, globalization, varieties of capitalism, and policy transfer literature, this book could not be more timely, in the lead up to the next wave of EU eastward enlargement. Containing rigorous quantitative analyses and detailed qualitative evidence, this book reconceptualizes the dynamics taking place during the EU enlargement process of Central and Eastern European countries and makes a major contribution to the understanding of the relationships between institutional transformation and economic performance.

Claire Chambolle, Eric Giraud-Heraud
We analyse the competition in quality and quantity between a foreign firm and a domestic firm. The domestic firm can belong to a certification of origin, whereas its rival uses a pure brand strategy. We will show how the certification can allow the domestic firm to position itself as a high quality producer and improve the average quality of the products offered on the market. If, however, the certified firm offers the low quality good, the certification can permit it to guarantee a higher profit than that of its competitor and to improve the consumers’ surplus by favoring product standardisation.

James Champy
New York: Harper Business, 1995
Noting that reengineering has not fulfilled the promise he predicted in 1993, author Champy asserts that the fault is not with technology but with management itself. He urges managers to consider four issues: What is this business for? What kind of culture do we want? How do we do our work? With what kind of people do we want to work? Champy's message in this book, a more conciliatory work than his original book on reengineering, is that the purpose of reengineering is to serve customers in a way that creates meaning for the individual employee and the organization. In today's world, employees want to work together in a collaborative, participative fashion rather than an authoritarian and controlling manner, and they want to work with people who learn, listen, and communicate and work as a team.

Hannah Chaplin, Sophia Moissey Davidova, Matthew Gorton
Durban, 2003
Survey evidence from three Central European Countries (Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland) is analysed to identify the degree of non-agricultural farm diversification and the factors facilitating or impeding it in individual farms. The effect of diversification on rural job creation is investigated. The results indicate that the level of diversification is relatively small and enterprise diversification by farmers is unlikely to generate sufficient new jobs and solve the problem of high rural unemployment. The attempt to transpose the Western European model of agricultural diversification to the acceding countries via the SAPARD programme is questionable, as non-farm centric rural policies appear to be more appropriate.

Книга Р. Шартье посвящена анализу и критическому сопоставлению новых подходов в историографии и культурной истории, которые при всех их различиях вписываются в рамки прагматического поворота в социальных науках (М. Фуко, М. де Серто, Н. Элиас, Ф. Ариес и др.). Обсуждению книги Р. Шартье "On the Edge of the Cliff" посвящен специальный форум "Critical Pragmatism, Language, and Cultural History", опубликованный в журнале French Historical Studies, Vol. 21, № 2 (Spring 1998). Среди статей, опубликованных на форуме, ответ Р. Шартье "Writing the Practices".

In this book, Roger Chartier and his associates explore the history of a cultural practice that has become common and widespread: the writing of letters. They begin by examining the invention of norms for writing letters in the Middle Ages, and the fixing of these norms in popular manuals of various kinds. They then analyse the letterwriting models developed in the ancien regimes, showing how these models were linked to court literature, on the one hand, and to the popular books distributed by pedlars, on the other. Finally, they discuss the models of letter-writing developed during the nineteenth century. The nineteenth century, they argue, was a decisive period in the history of letter-writing, partly because of the rapid rise in rates of literacy and partly due to broader social and economic transformations which increased the need for writing letters.
