Synopsis The Global Financial Crisis of 2007-2009 has highlighted the resilience of the financial markets and broader economies from the developing world. This outcome owes much to the bitter experience and economic strategies developed and implemented at both a national and international level following the Asian Financial Crisis of 1997-1998. The objective of this volume is to investigate and assess the impact of and response to the crisis from an emerging markets perspective, including asset pricing, contagion, financial intermediation, market structure and regulation. Our hope is that the assembled papers will offer clear insights into the complex financial arrangements that now link emerging and developed financial markets in the current economic environment. The volume spans four dimensions: first, a series of background studies offer explanations of the causes and impacts of the crisis on emerging markets more generally; then, implications are considered. The third and final sections provide insights from regional and country-specific perspectives.

Synopsis The theme of this volume is “Recovering from Financial Crisis.” The lead chapter sets the theme by giving insight into the recent surge in going-private transactions (and the corresponding reduction of Initial Public Offerings). The author develops evidence (reaching back 25 years) that going-private transactions tend to be inversely related to the return on diversified equity portfolios, suggesting that the recent upswing in going-private transactions in the USA is not simply the result of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. The second chapter offers insights into the recent round of hedge fund failures. Then, the third chapter offers new insights into some of the more controversial aspects of private equity arrangements – when private equity arrangements are expressed as real options, the actions of the managing partners are more readily understandable. The fourth chapter offers insights into why commodity producers (such as oil companies) choose not to hedge, so that their stock can offer shareholders the opportunity to gain valuable diversification benefits, using the stock as a pure play in the commodity. Remaining chapters offer further insights into recent trends in IPO activity, lease versus purchase decisions, agency costs, project risk, and emerging markets.

Research on Professional Responsibility and Ethics in Accounting
Research on Professional Responsibility and Ethics in Accounting Volume 15

ISBN Print: 9781780520049 ISBN Electronic: 9781780520056 Series ISSN: 1574-0765 Publication date: 24 May 2011 Imprint: Emerald Group Publishing Limited Price: £59.95 €89.95 $114.95 Format Print: Hardback Format Electronic: PDF Page count: 192 Dimensions: Width: 156mm Height: 234mm Primary BIC classification: KFC Primary BISAC code: BUS008000 LCC code: HG1706-1708 Audience: Professional/vocational

Synopsis Research on Professional Responsibility and Ethics in Accounting is devoted to publishing high-quality research and cases that focus on the professional responsibilities of accountants and how they deal with the ethical issues they face. The series features articles on a broad range of important and timely topics, including professionalism, social responsibility, ethical judgment, and accountability. The professional responsibilities of accountants are broad-based; they must serve clients and user groups whose needs, incentives, and goals may be in conflict. Further, accountants must interpret and apply codes of conduct, accounting and auditing principles, and securities regulations. Compliance with professional guidelines is judgment-based, and characteristics of the individual, the culture, and situations affect how these guidelines are interpreted and applied, as well as when they might be violated. Interactions between accountants, regulators, standard setters, and industries also have ethical components. Research into the nature of these interactions, resulting dilemmas, and how and why accountants resolve them, is the focus of this journal.

Synopsis Governance is very much a current concern in the public interest. The global economic recession, from which we are just emerging, has highlighted failures in governance and regulation with much blame being laid at the feet of regulators and demands for perpetrators to be sanctioned accordingly. A key to managing the prevention of future financial crisis is concerned with the recognition and regulation of a truly global market for finance, trade, labour etc. and accepting that there are different perspectives from different parts of the world. Published in association with the Social Responsibility Research Network, Volume 2 in this new and exciting series recognises these issues and takes a global interdisciplinary perspective to the matter of governance in the business environment. Contributions range from the UK, Portugal and Belgium to Brazil, Japan, China and Malaysia, and topics of investigation include: governance and the management of global markets; governance mechanisms of strategic alliances in the Japanese car industry; multinational corporations and democratic governance; market governance to governance in the market – a return to the old order; and a sociolegal framework for governance.

Synopsis Volume 14 of Advances in Financial Economics presents recent research on corporate governance from a number of countries across the world, including the USA, Spain, Malaysia, Israel and others. Many important corporate governance mechanisms are examined, such as board characteristics (size, independence, duality, staggered form), ownership structure, legal protection of shareholders, annual general meetings, and executive compensation. The findings have implications for mergers and acquisitions, IPOs, related party transactions, CEO pay, volume of trading and stock volatility, and underwriting. Thus, the implications of corporate governance for firm performance and shareholder experience are covered through the salient activities of firms.

Synopsis Genetically modified (GM) crops are produced using plant biotechnology to select desirable characteristics in plants and transfer genes from one to another. Scientists are introducing genes to give plants resistance to herbicides, insects, disease, drought and salt in the soil. The application of biotechnology to crop and food production is one of the most significant technological advances in modern agriculture. Over the last decade a large body of applied economics work has addressed key questions around the application of this technology to food production. It is now time to examine results and consolidate findings. The challenge is to strengthen the consensus of what economics has to offer in analysis of complex issues surrounding the development of GM products. Motivation for this volume is to provide a new perspective on the most pressing policy questions regarding GM crops and to foster an intellectual climate conducive to achieving meaningful progress and lasting solutions. It brings together fresh insights from top agricultural economists in the areas of consumer attitudes, environmental impacts, policy and regulation, trade, investment, food security, and development.

Synopsis David Cass passed away sometime between Friday, April 11 and Tuesday, April 15, 2008, at the age of 71. While a full telling of the professional life of David Cass must await the attention of economic history, our goal here is to provide the full collection of Cass’s 42 published research articles, along with some unpublished material that we felt should be included as well. The three volumes of The Collected Scientific Work of David Cass are ordered chronologically, which happens to coincide with the development of the three major advances in Cass’s research agenda, the development of the neoclassical growth model, the discovery of sunspot equilibria, and the analysis of models of market incompleteness.

Synopsis Economic events such as the recent global economic crisis can have substantial effects on the distribution of resources at the individual and household levels. Identification of appropriate and timely policy responses that support vulnerable groups is hampered by how little is known about the likely patterns of losses early on during the downturn. This volume contains fresh knowledge on the effects of the economic downturn on employment and income distribution. It contains nine original research papers from both Europe and the USA, including illustrations of forward-looking simulation methods that can be used before detailed data on actual household experiences become available. These papers offer new insights into issues such as how wages, employment and incomes are affected by the crisis, which demographic groups are most vulnerable in the recession, how well the welfare system protects the newly unemployed and how consumption and income poverty change over the business cycle.

Martin Bronfenbrenner’s Course in Distribution of Income

Synopsis This volume publishes notes from Martin Bronfenbrenner's course in the Distribution of Income as taken by Warren J. Samuels at the University of Wisconsin in 1954. Bronfenbrenner, who received his PhD from the University of Chicago in 1939, was an unusually prolific author with wide-ranging interests. The New Palgrave entry on Bronfenbrenner notes that he was probably unique in holding simultaneous membership in both the Mt Pelerin Society and the Union of Radical Political Economists. Bronfenbrenner's work on income distribution is particularly important as it modified neoclassical theory to be able to address questions raised by both classical and neo-Marxian analysts. He described his own work as being "summed up in the proposition that the distribution of income and wealth is an important factor in judging an economic system on welfare grounds, but that such emotive terms as 'maldistribution', 'exploitation', and 'poverty' are all subjective." This volume thus provides an important archival source for economists working in mid-twentieth century history of economic thought as well as those interested in the evolution of neoclassical theory and the nexus between economics and Cold War politics.

Synopsis The recent emphasis on accountability in policy and practice for individuals with learning and behavioral disabilities has placed a renewed focus on issues in assessment. However, assessment in itself is of little value unless it leads to more effective and systematic interventions. In this volume, a distinguished group of international authors provide important insights on recent advances on assessment and intervention, and the relation between the two. Included in this volume are chapters on curriculum-based measurement and response to intervention, dynamic assessment and working memory, diagnostic accuracy and functional diagnosis, assessment of social behavior, assessment and intervention in reading and writing, assessment and treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and assessment and intervention in social and emotional competence and self-determination. Taken together, these chapters provide significant new information that will be of interest to graduate students, clinicians, teachers, and other professionals concerned with effective assessment and intervention for individuals with learning and behavioral disabilities.

The narrative inquiry framing this book investigates the tensions experienced by teachers, children and families as they make curriculum attentive to lives. It draws on a research project involving multi-perspectival narrative inquiries spanning four research sites and traces the tensions experienced by children, families and teachers in multiple curriculum-making sites and some of the profound identity-making and assessmentmaking implications that become visible. Its attention to the relational in narrative inquiry is focused on tensions that shape lives and also the unfolding of narrative inquiries.

Adolescent Boys’ Literate Identity

ISBN Print: 9780857249050 ISBN Electronic: 9780857249067 Series ISSN: 1479-3687 Publication date: 9 May 2011 Imprint: Emerald Group Publishing Limited Price: £62.95 €89.95 $114.95 Format Print: Hardback Format Electronic: PDF Page count: 250 Dimensions: Width: 156mm Height: 234mm Primary BIC classification: JNFD Primary BISAC code: EDU012000 LCC code: LC149-161 Audience: Professional/vocational

Synopsis This book is the representation of a narrative inquiry conducted with five ninth-grade boys who were identified as displaying multiple literacies, looking specifically at how these boys storied their literate identities. The author conducted several negotiation sessions with the boys and their parents at the school, as well as in their homes. These negotiations facilitated a methodological concept that the book terms distillation: an interim step for determining which narratives in an inquiry are emblematic. An analysis of the collected stories revealed that the boys' stories moved beyond current conceptions of either identity or literacy alone and instead offered a way of defining literate identity as simultaneously being and doing literacy. The question of how the boys story themselves, the original research question, is ultimately answered using a meta-narrative, or archetype, where a hero distributes a boon or gift to his society. The implications for this research include a need to examine classroom space in order to facilitate the deployment of literate identity capital, as well as space for living out the meta-narratives that these boys are composing.

Synopsis More than identity politics, intersectionality regards the inability of institutional structures to remedy discrimination because of the intersection between social dynamics which are often discretely conceived (Crenshaw and Dill, 2009). This intersection metaphor is worth examining in the higher education context as we consider that the majority of students on most US campuses are women (Allen, et al, 2008), and an increasing number of these women are not White; yet, most campuses have support services targeted at African-American and/or multicultural student affairs and women's services which are generally targeted at White women. This volume will focus on the subpopulation of Black female college students, examining institutional and noninstitutional supports for their persistence to the undergraduate degree.

Synopsis Rarely, if ever, have business schools experienced change as far-reaching and powerful as during the current wave of globalization. Understanding these changes, and their implications, was the charge given to an AACSB Task Force on Globalization of Management Education. In this comprehensive report, the Task Force explores broad globalization trends in management education that command the attention of any individual or institution striving to navigate in today's environment. Then, by exploring individual business school strategies, it provides valuable insights into how business schools can and should respond. The report aims to encourage and guide business schools to embrace globalization in ways that are mission-appropriate, manageable, given available resources, and meaningful to the stakeholders being served. For organizations serving business schools, it will be a catalyst for action that elevates and improves business schools' capabilities. Readers will be left with the conviction that great opportunities exist for business schools to move from keeping pace with the sweeping changes of globalization, to leading the way.

Synopsis One of the emerging reasons for the current trend of increasing impacts of disasters is the unpredictability of natural hazard events coupled with the tendency of human settlements to move to vulnerable locations including coastal areas in search of economic gains. Urban areas are most affected due to concentration of habitat and resources. Whilst it is impossible to make urban growth resistant, resilience is becoming more widely accepted and urban systems must be resilient enough to cope with the climaterelated hazards. This book highlights the issues of resilience through regional, national, city and community-based studies. Contributions come from academia, city government networks, city managers, non-government organizations and international agencies like the World Bank and United Nations. Thus, the book reflects a unique aspect of multi-stakeholder perspective. It also highlights how to enhance actions at local levels, and how the plans can be implemented through multi-stakeholder collaboration. This is the first book to combine academic research and field practice on the urban risk reduction, focusing especially on the climate-related disasters in the Asian region.

Dynamics of Globalization: LocationSpecific Advantages or Liabilities of Foreignness?
Advances in International Management Volume 24
Professor Torben Pedersen Copenhagen Business School, Denmark Professor Christian Geisler Asmussen Copenhagen Business School, Denmark Professor Timothy Devinney University of New South Wales, Australia Professor Laszlo Tihanyi Texas A&M University, USA
ISBN Print: 9780857249913 ISBN Electronic: 9780857249920 Series ISSN: 1571-5027 Publication date: 22 June 2011 Imprint: Emerald Group Publishing Limited Price: £62.95 €89.95 $114.95 Format Print: Hardback Format Electronic: PDF Page count: 221 Dimensions: Width: 156mm Height: 234mm Primary BIC classification: KJK Primary BISAC code: BUS035000 LCC code: HF5001-6182 Audience: Professional/vocational Synopsis Cross-border flows of goods, services, capital, knowledge, and ideas have substantially increased over the last decades. These developments have increased the interdependencies among previously separated economies, given rise to arguments regarding the flattening of the world. Yet, firms investing overseas continue to experience substantial liabilities stemming from their foreignness. At the same time new locations are appearing on the global map that offer very attractive location-specific advantages. In addition, the range of participants in international competition has widened, in terms of both the number of countries involved and the types of firms competing, to encompass developed market firms expanding beyond industrialized countries, and emerging market firms joining global competition. The focus of this volume is on how the interface between firm-specific advantages, liability of foreignness, and location-specific advantages is spelled out in the more global world.

Making Semantics Pragmatic
Current Research in the Semantics/Pragmatics Interface Volume 24
Ken Turner University of Brighton, UK

ISBN Print: 9780857249098 Series ISSN: 1472-7870 Publication date: 14 June 2011 Imprint: Emerald Group Publishing Limited Price: £62.95 €89.95 $114.95 Format Print: Hardback Format Electronic: PDF Page count: 250 Dimensions: Width: 156mm Height: 234mm Primary BIC classification: CFG Primary BISAC code: LAN016000 LCC code: P101-410 Audience: Professional/vocational

Synopsis This collection of especially invited papers aims to explore the nature of the semantics/pragmatics interface by examining the extent to which the analysis of certain expressions or constructions can be pragmaticised. As the title of the collection implies, it is expected that the theoretical and descriptive burden will move from semantics to pragmatics. However, not all parts of a linguistic system will yield to a pragmatic treatment. The possibility remains that certain expressions or constructions are more economically and elegantly treated in semantic terms. Thus, this collection also contains papers that address the topic of “making pragmatics semantic”. This collection contributes to the current interest in examining the division of labour between semantics and pragmatics in the analysis of meaning. All the papers are at the forefront of knowledge in these matters and each contains original empirical analyses and/or novel theoretical perspectives. The book is relevant to courses in university departments of linguistics, modern languages, philosophy and psychology and to a wide range of university teaching and research.

Synopsis The book is interdisciplinary in focus and centers on enlarging teachers' understanding of how reading and writing can change lives and how the language arts can contribute significantly to and change educational processes in the twentyfirst century. Implicit in its argument is that, although the emphasis on science and math is crucial to education in the digital edge, it remains vitally important to keep reading and writing, language and story, at the heart of the educational process. This is particularly true in a democratic society because shaping stories through human language can enhance the quality of our lives, and teach us something important about what it means to be human and vulnerable. In this sense, stories allow for self-reflection and an increased opportunity to enhance and understand emotional intelligence and human community.

Synopsis Olivia Stockard is a New York-based communications consultant who helps business writers use their skills in analysis and logic to produce successful business messages. In this new edition of The Write Approach, Dr Stockard looks at how the speed of technology can cause business writers to short-cut the thinking, planning, and editing needed for good writing. Rather than “pushing the send button” quickly without considering the consequences, writers are guided in ways to be more thoughtful in their use of communication tools and practices. The new edition's expanded commentary and exercises underscore the author’s basic premise: writers must determine their purpose for writing, consider their readers' expectations, and polish the final product. Self-instructional activities invite readers to practise evaluating and improving business writing.

Synopsis As it continues to publish work that is relevant for both researchers and library practitioners, Volume 30 of Advances in Library Administration and Organization contains articles describing efforts at cooperation and collaboration within the library profession. This volume includes scholarship that illustrates both concepts, best defined in one of the chapters as terms "often used loosely to describe relationships among entities or people working together." Topics explored within the volume include an examination of public and academic libraries as places that provide purposeful spaces specific to providing user need fulfilment; library services in juvenile detention centers; and the contribution of school library media specialists. The development of electronic institutional repositories, primarily in academic libraries and based on efforts to encourage campus community involvement and partnerships between librarians and the faculty they serve, is discussed. Successful fund raising in libraries is explored through the examination of the impact of organizational placement of the library development officer in universities.

Organizing for Sustainability
Organizing for Sustainable Effectiveness Volume 1
Susan Albers Mohrman Marshall School of Business, University of Southern California, USA A.B. (Rami) Shani California Polytechnic University, USA

Synopsis A large literature has been generated about sustainability, and many organizations, governments, communities, and citizens have focused on it. Yet, given how quickly the limits of the current models of the global economy are being approached, we must accelerate the rate at which we learn to operate differently. In this first volume of the Emerald series Organizing for Sustainable Effectiveness, our goal is to learn from some of the pioneers articulating these challenges and organizing to address them. There is an urgent need to grow the knowledge bases to guide the transition. For this reason, each chapter in this volume is crafted to bring together the knowledge of practice and theory. The chapters are based on rich empirical data about particular cases in which organizations are, individually or collectively, working to build a more sustainable future. The authors of these chapters also bring theoretical knowledge to bear on these case examples. In so doing, they test the applicability of the formal knowledge base about management and organizations, while refining, modifying, and extending it to increase its usefulness in addressing the challenges of organizing for sustainable effectiveness.

Synopsis Since the mid-twentieth century, organizational theorists have increasingly distanced themselves from the study of core societal power centers and important policy issues of the day. This has been driven by a shift away from the study of organizations, politics, and society and towards a more narrow focus on instrumental exchange and performance. As a result, our field has become increasingly impotent as a critical voice and contributor to policy. For a contemporary example, witness our inability as a field to make sense of the recent US mortgage meltdown and concomitant global financial crisis. It is not that economic and organizational sociologists have nothing to say. The problem is that, while we have a great deal of knowledge about finance, the economy, entrepreneurship and corporations, we fail to address how the knowledge in our field can be used to contribute to important policy issues of the day. This book brings together some of the very top scholars in the world in economic and organizational sociology to address the recent global financial crisis debates and struggles around how to organize economies and societies around the world.

Synopsis The common theme of this volume is that the critical theory of the Frankfurt School is as important today, if not more so, as it was at its inception during the 1930s. It looks at the distinguishing features of this tradition and how it is critical of, yet also complementary, with other approaches in the social sciences, especially in sociology. The vanishing point of critical theory is not the replacement of diverse endeavors to illuminate the nature of modern society, rather, its purpose is to bundle overly fragmented perspectives that have been developed in theoretical sociology. Essays included address: the problematic analysis of political economy at the center of the early Frankfurt School, and the subsequent neglect of political economy; the continuing importance of alienation and reification as focal points of critical theory; differences in modes of critical theorizing during the twentieth century (with special emphasis on Lukàcs, Adorno, Habermas, and Postone); globalization as an analytical and normative challenge critical theorists are uniquely positioned to confront; and the most problematic feature mainstream approaches in the social sciences have in common.

Synopsis Whether criticized or praised, European labor markets have been well-known for their social democracy and corporatism, and purported rigidities and inefficiencies. European labor markets have always stood out for supposedly providing workers with more security and equality and/or being unable to foster job growth and flexibility. This volume places the labor markets, workplaces, jobs and workers of Europe in comparative perspective. It focuses on the politics, economics, sociology, and history of work and workers in Europe. Authors contribute a variety of methodological and theoretical perspectives, with papers that push the boundaries of evidence and argument. In order to place European workers in comparative perspectives, the volume features articles that analyze specific European countries, industries and firms, analyze Europe as one of a few cases, and analyze many European countries within a cross-national sample. It contains both qualitative and quantitative studies as well as explicitly theoretical work, and compares contemporary patterns and the recent history of European workers with other models of work worldwide.

Synopsis This volume addresses a variety of issues related to economic crisis in the broadest sense of the term, involving diverse national and international contexts, historical epochs, and a range of problems related to economic life. The chapters in this volume tackle criminologically relevant questions in connection with crime/deviance and/or the control thereof, on the basis of an analysis of any aspect of economic life, in general, and economic crisis, in particular. Thematically diverse within the province of criminology and the sociology of crime, deviance, and social control, the chapters are not restricted in terms of theoretical approach and methodological orientation. In these and all other relevant respects, this book is usefully varied in examining selected dimensions of economic crisis in relation to important questions of crime and crime control. Specific themes discussed include: corporate crime, money laundering, foreclosures, and mortgage fraud. This volume provides timely analyses of the impact of the current economic crisis, innovative perspectives on problems of economy and finance, and criminological insights on often neglected aspects of social life.

Synopsis Volume 36 of Studies in Symbolic Interaction is solely devoted to the Blue-Ribbon Papers, under the special issue editorship of Lonnie Athens. Nine papers are published in which hotlycontested issues are raised that, even if only resolved partially, could permanently change the future direction of interactional thought. Among the questions addressed are: whether there ever existed a genuine sociological school of thought based on “interactionsim” at the University of Chicago, whether Herbert Blumer misinterpreted the major thrust of George Herbert Mead’s thought, whether conventional or radical interactionism is the most insightful perspective from which to examine crucial life decisions that are conflict-ridden, whether George Herbert Mead’s and George Santayana’s perspectives converged with or diverged from each other's and with radical interactionism, whether language develops primarily from the inside out or from the outside in, whether personal economics is mainly responsible for self-esteem and the over all functioning of the self in everyday life, and whether filming constitutes a method of recording data that traditional ethnographers should include in their tool-box?

Synopsis Endorsed by Geert Hofstede, the most-quoted author in the cross-cultural field, this is the only book that explains the relationship between national culture and national differences in crucially important phenomena, such as speed of economic growth, murder rates, and educational achievement. It explains differences in suicide rates, road death tolls, female inequality, happiness, and a number of other phenomena in an unprecedented way. It provides comprehensive coverage of these important cross-cultural differences-while showing how they vary across the world, and presents strong empirical/statistical evidence for the explanations. Chapters focus on culture and cross-cultural studies, economic dynamism, universalism versus exclusionism, risk-taking reproductive competition, monumentalism versus flexumility (flexibility + humility), and the world's cultural clusters. Each chapter contains a subchapter in which implications for international management and organizational behavior are discussed, making the book attractive not only to readers with a special interest in the social sciences, but also to management consultants, management educators and business executives.

Synopsis The policy and technological context within which FDI takes place has changed dramatically in the last two decades. Countries around the world have become more open to FDI, and revolutions in information and communications technology have lowered the costs of internationalization. As a result, global FDI flows have swelled but, just as important, the forms that it takes have become more complex. For instance, emerging markets are now spawning MNEs of their own, governments and private equity firms are engaging in FDI, global sourcing is becoming central to the strategies of many firms, and offshoring encompasses many services, including high-end R&D work. In turn, these developments are exposing the limitations of the field's theoretical foundations. This Festschrift in honour of Professor Yair Aharoni, a pioneer in the field of international business, looks at several of these new trends in FDI, what they will mean for firms and governments, and the opportunities created by these developments to enrich or extend extant theory. Contributors to the volume include the world's leading international business scholars.

Managing Urban Mobility Systems

Synopsis Urban mobility is currently a major problem all over the world. Space is limited, and individuals aim for a level of quality in mobility that is only achieved by largely motorised solutions, which have a detrimental effect on the urban environment. Careful analysis of urban mobility systems across the world reveals that consistent and effective policies can only be defined and implemented if the various components of the system and their interrelations are considered. This book addresses the problem of managing urban mobility systems in a novel way by considering the complexity and diversity of the conurbation and agents involved in a UMS, putting forward the evidence that urban mobility must be managed at system level. The value of this book lies in bringing together a sound theoretical approach to urban mobility systems, supported by evidence from several cities across the world where this approach was either implemented or at least assessed, together with clear instructional guidelines. It constitutes a handbook for practitioners, politicians, researchers and students of urban mobility management.
