Research in Finance
Research in Finance, Volume 28
John Kensinger Synopsis
The theme of this volume is “Dealing with Volatility and Enhancing Performance.” The lead chapter sets the theme by giving insight into using the Chicago Board Option Exchange Volatility Index (CBOE VIX) futures in hedging strategies for equity market investors (and hedge funds). During a time when there is much concern about the perceived volatility of global equity markets, the insights offered here could be reassuring as well as useful. The second chapter offers insights into the efficiency (or lack thereof) of attempts to forecast global earnings. Then, the third chapter offers new insights into an issue that has been important for many decades, but which promises to become more topical in the years to come. That is the question of when and why the people who make the business work should also be the owners. Remaining chapters offer further insights into recent trends in “in-house” mergers/acquisitions activity, purchases and sales of real options, project risk, electricity derivatives, corporate governance in Europe, and emerging markets.

Business Strategy and Sustainability
Developments in Corporate Governance and Responsibility, Volume 3
Guler Aras
Yildiz Technical University, Turkey

David Crowther Synopsis

De Montfort University, UK

This volume examines the word that’s on everybody’s lips in business, in government and in society – sustainability. There are, of course, many aspects of sustainability which might be considered to reflect Brundtland’s three pillars of economic, environmental and social sustainability. Others, of course, have different definitions, which include such things as governance or supply chain management. Nevertheless, business has recognised the significance of the concept and is responding by developing strategies to cope, although some would say that this is little more than window dressing. The debate continues, however, as to just what is meant by the term sustainability as far as business is concerned and how can this be achieved? This book is designed to address this debate and set it within the context of the global business and societal environment.

Informal Employment in Emerging and Transition Economies
Research in Labor Economics, Volume 34
Hastmut Lehmann
SUNY, Binghampton, USA

Konstantinos Tatsiramos Synopsis

IZA, Institute for the Study of Labor, Bonn, Germany

Informality and informal employment are widespread and growing phenomena in all regions of the world, in particular in low and middle income economies. A large part of economic activity in these countries is not registered or under-declared and many workers enter employment relationships that do not provide any or provide only partial protection, work with little or no physical capital, receive low wages and work under conditions that can be hazardous to their health. This volume sheds light on the incidence and persistence of informality and the role of institutions and government regulations. The articles offer insights into issues such as how labor and tax regulations determine the incidence of informality, whether reforms on tax and other regulations can reduce informal employment, to what extent informality occurs as a result of job separations, how persistent is informal employment, how informal employment can be detected and whether migration can be a substitute for informal employment.

Perspectives on Evaluating Criminal Justice and Corrections
Advances in Program Evaluation, Volume 13
Erica Bowen Sara Brown Synopsis
A comprehensive and authoritative overview of issues relating to the evaluation of criminal justice/corrections “interventions”, this unique reference draws on a variety of theoretical, cultural and epistemological perspectives with authors from a range of disciplines and countries. It begins by looking at the purpose of evaluation within criminal justice systems as a historical and conceptual background. Methods outlined for evaluating criminal justice focus on educating readers about the design decisions they may face as evaluators, enabling them to make informed decisions when choosing designs that are not necessarily optimal. It raises the question of who evaluation is for, and a clearly informed discussion of the importance of the full range of stakeholders involved in evaluation and the potential impact of participating in evaluations on different stakeholders is presented. With insight into successful and unsuccessful evaluation from the perspective of those who are being evaluated, and a critical examination of the methodological and conceptual difficulties involved in identifying “effects”, this book concludes by looking ahead to the future of criminal justice evaluation.

ISSN: 1479-3636 ISBN print: 9781780527109 ISBN electronic: 9781780527116 Publication date: 17 May 2012 Price: £62.95 €89.95 $114.95 Format print: Hardback Format electronic: PDF Page count: 430 Dimensions: 156 x 234 mm Primary BIC code: JNS Primary BISAC code: EDU026000 LCC code: LC1200-1203

As inclusive practice becomes more embedded in the policy and practice of schools around the globe, there remain groups of children and young people for whom education is a problem because of behaviours, poor emotional development and lack of social skills. These pupils often display disaffection towards education and are to be found on the margins of mainstream schools – too often they drop out of schooling altogether. Drawing on papers and discussions at the 3rd International Conference of SEBDA in 2010 at Keble College ,Oxford, UK, the papers in this volume both describe and critically examine strategies and interventions in meeting the educational and well being needs of these children and young people. The contributions provide insights into the ways in which these pupils can remain engaged, or even be persuaded to reengage, in education provided in both mainstream and specialist schools.

Beyond the Nation-State: The Reconstruction of Nationhood and Citizenship
Research in Sociology of Education, Volume 18
David H. Kamens Synopsis
The book examines the effects of education in creating global citizens who share a world culture. This occurs within an international system that still remains decentralized, composed of independent nation-states as major actors. Prof. Kamens argues that, as globalization intensifies, this system of nation-states becomes more saturated and dense with structure. Intensified globalization has produced a world society, thanks to the spread of global capitalism, education, democracy and bureaucracy. The upshot is that world culture travels quickly and produces “recipes” for the development of an “imagined community” that has increasing commonalities across societies. The book examines the role of education in diffusing such attitudes and models, as global citizens confront national institutions.

Health Information Technology in the International Context
Advances in Health Care Management, Volume 12
Nir Menachemi Sanjay Singh Synopsis
This volume focuses on management issues in the international context of health information technology (HIT). Nations around the globe have established policies designed to improve the computerization of their health care systems. It is believed that the adoption of HIT including clinical information systems, decision support systems, and networks or systems that facilitate the exchange of clinical and other health data will yield various desirable outcomes. These outcomes may include improvements in the quality of care, a reduction in medical errors, boosts in efficiencies, and improved provider and patient satisfaction.

Language and Linguistics

The End of Argument Structure?
Syntax and Semantics, Volume 38
María Cristina Cuervo Yves Roberge Synopsis
The papers included in this volume explore current issues and re-assess generally accepted premises on the relationship between lexical meaning and the morphosyntax of sentences. A central question in the study of language concerns the mechanisms by which the participants in an event described by a sentence come to occupy their positions and acquire their interpretation. The papers confront two competing approaches to this question. A long-standing approach is based on the assumption that it is the lexical meaning of a verb that determines, albeit indirectly, the basic properties of sentence structure at the level of verbal meaning, including asymmetric relations, thematic roles, case, and agreement. An alternative approach claims that, to a large extent, the syntax itself establishes possible verbal meanings on the basis of the legitimate relations that can exist between syntactic heads, complements, and specifiers.

Rethinking Power in Organizations, Institutions, and Markets
Research in the Sociology of Organizations, Volume 34
David Courpasson
EM Lyon, France

Damon Golsorkhi
ESC Rouen, France

Synopsis
Organizations are central actors of modern society. No understanding of our world is complete without a theory of how they work. This insight is grounded in the foundational texts of classical social theory, and it remains as true as ever today. Be they multinational corporations or startup firms, established political parties or insurgent social movements, successful organizations must engage in power-projects. Such is the overarching argument of this volume, a collection of papers by many of the world’s leading social scientists and organizational scholars. Many contributions analyze empirical data to generate cutting-edge arguments about the actual working of organizations, institutions, and markets. Other papers represent original theoretical arguments that propose new ways to see and study power. Topics addressed include the nature of post-bureaucratic (polyarchic) organizations, strategic action within fields, identity and contentious politics, and emergent forms of resistance. Collectively, the papers that comprise this volume set a fresh agenda for the study of power in and across organizations and institutions.

Reinventing hierarchy and bureaucracy – from the bureau to network organizations
Research in the Sociology of Organizations, Volume 35
Thomas Diefenbach Rune Todnem By Synopsis
This special volume brings together leading scholars in the field of organisation studies to reflect on the universal phenomena of hierarchy (vertical organisation of tasks) and bureaucracy (rule-bound execution of tasks). The result is a colourful kaleidoscope of thought-provoking, critical and refreshingly non-mainstream analysis of hierarchy and bureaucracy. The chapters range from minute accounts of a single case to broader historical analysis, from the “classical” journal paper to essay-style elaborations. The first section provides fundamentals and historical accounts of bureaucracy, highlighting negative and positive effects of bureaucracy and a differentiated picture with some future outlook. The second section focuses on the analysis of organisational, cultural and socio-psychological aspects of hierarchy and bureaucracy by interrogating hierarchy in contemporary work via a new framework, exploring the cultural fantasy of hierarchy and sovereignty, and examining subordinates’ challenges to organisational hierarchy. The final section comprises two chapters which provide some alternative views on, and alternatives to, hierarchy. One is alarming, the other is puzzling.

Firms, Boards and Gender Quotas: Comparative Perspectives
Comparative Social Research, Volume 29
Fredrik Engelstad Mari Teigen Synopsis
During the last decade gender equality in business life has become a hot topic. One impetus is the recent reform in Norway, prescribing gender quotas to the boards of directors of public companies. Shortly after the Norwegian reform was enacted, several other European countries have adopted similar reforms. This is the only volume where this gender quota reform is thoroughly discussed from an economic, political and philosophical point of view. It looks at whether the economic performance of companies is influenced, positively or negatively. The reasons why it has been embraced in some countries and rejected in others are analyzed. Moreover, viability of the gender quota reform is assessed by comparisons with other political interventions in business life in Scandinavia, of which some have been a failure, whereas others have shown themselves to be successful. This specific reform also serves as a backdrop to other themes related to gender and business. This volume provides a broad comparative study of the access of women to top positions in business in Europe. It also gives detailed discussions of gender relations in family businesses both in East Asia and in Europe.

Deana Rohlinger Synopsis

Florida State University, Tallahassee, FL, USA

This volume of Research in Social Movements, Conflicts and Change explores the relationships between mass media, social movements, and political change. Since Martin Luther nailed his Theses of Contention on the Wittenberg Church door in 1517, scholars and pundits have noted that the media play an important role in social and political change. This volume advances scholarly understanding of how activists and élites alike use books, newspapers, and internetenabled technologies to effect change. Chapters include analyses of the role of the media in the (Anti-)Abortion, Globalization, Labor, Townsend, and White Power movements as well as Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign. Altogether, this volume suggests new avenues for research, provides new insights into the strategic use and influence of media, and challenges existing assumptions of media-movement relationships.

Religion, Work, and Inequality
Research in the Sociology of Work, Volume 23
Lisa Keister Synopsis
Work behaviours and inequality in work-based rewards are essential to financial security and general wellbeing. Although the benefits of receiving work-based rewards, such as income, benefits and retirement packages, are significant, they are not enjoyed uniformly. Scholars have invested considerable resources in studying the processes that lead to differential work outcomes, and we know a considerable amount about what places people in the distributions of income and wealth. However, religion is a critical determinant of these outcomes that has attracted little attention. It seems logical that a person’s general approach to the world – their religious beliefs or cultural orientation – would be an important determinant of their wealth. After all, the things we consider important and our operating assumptions about how the world does work and how it should work are certain to affect the goals we pursue, our decisions about critical life events and, ultimately, how well-off we are. This volume brings together major thinkers in the field of religion, work and inequality to explore current research and to articulate an agenda for better understanding these essential social processes.

Blue Ribbon Papers: Behind the Professional Mask: The Self-Revelations of Leading Symbolic Interactionists
Studies in Symbolic Interaction, Volume 38
Lonnie Athens Synopsis
Volume 38 of Studies in Symbolic Interaction is devoted exclusively to the Blue Ribbon Papers Series, which is under the intellectual leadership of Lonnie Athens. In this issue, Athens presents the autobiographies of scholars who have made significant contributions to the symbolic interactionist approach, over both the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, including David Altheide, Paul Atkinson, Kathy Chamaraz, Adele Clarke, Gary Cook, Carolyn Ellis, Martyn Hammersley, John Johnson, Joseph Kotarba, and Laurel Richardson. The contributors were all asked to address the question of how they got into their particular fields of study and later became interactionist? They were also prodded to reveal “who is the person behind the professional mask” by describing why and how they changed over the intellectual journeys that they took in becoming some of the best-known and well-respected advocates of the symbolic-interactionist’s approach in the USA and the UK. These autobiographic reflections and revelations shatter not only the popular stereotype of academics, but also the stereotype of scholars who subscribe to the viewpoint of symbolic interactionism.

Lee Chapman Synopsis

University of Birmingham, UK

Transport accounts for 26 per cent of global CO2 emissions and is one of the few industrial sectors where emissions are still growing. There is a need to consider adaptation so that society is resilient to the future impacts of climate change on our networks, and a holistic framework for research and investment is required to improve the relationship between transport and climate change. This highly topical volume covers the intersection between transport and climate change. It begins with a comprehensive introduction with definitions of transport and climate change, including mitigation and adaptation, as well as sustainability. It then proceeds to examine the relationship between transport and climate change in two parts. In Part A the role of transport modes at varying spatial dimensions is considered. A range of perspectives on the relationship between transport and climate change are provided in Part B, including economic, behavioural, social, policy, time and technological perspectives. Many of the contributions are from the “Transport & Climate Change” session of the RGS-IBG Conference in London, September 2010, co-chaired by the two editors, Dr Tim Ryley and Dr Lee Chapman.
