The Cambridge Handbook of Stakeholder Theory (Paperback): Jeffrey S. Harrison, Jay B. Barney, R. Edward Freeman, Robert A.... The Cambridge Handbook of Stakeholder Theory (Paperback)
Jeffrey S. Harrison, Jay B. Barney, R. Edward Freeman, Robert A. Phillips
R605 Discovery Miles 6 050 In stock

In the decades since R. Edward Freeman first introduced stakeholder theory, which views firms in terms of their relationships to a broad set of partners, the stakeholder approach has drawn increasing attention as a model for ethical business. Edited by Freeman, alongside other leading scholars in stakeholder theory and strategic management, this handbook provides a comprehensive foundation for study in the field, with eighteen chapters covering some of the most important topics in stakeholder theory written by respected and highly cited experts. The chapters contain an overview of the topic, an examination of the most important research on the topic to date, an evaluation of that research, and suggestions for future directions. Given the pace of new scholarship in the field, this handbook will provide an essential reference on both foundational topics as well as new applications of stakeholder theory to entrepreneurship, sustainable business, corporate responsibility, and beyond.

Mafia Organizations - The Visible Hand of Criminal Enterprise (Paperback): Maurizio Catino Mafia Organizations - The Visible Hand of Criminal Enterprise (Paperback)
Maurizio Catino
R578 R454 Discovery Miles 4 540 Save R124 (21%) In stock

How do mafias work? How do they recruit people, control members, conduct legal and illegal business, and use violence? Why do they establish such a complex mix of rituals, rules, and codes of conduct? And how do they differ? Why do some mafias commit many more murders than others? This book makes sense of mafias as organizations, via a collative analysis of historical accounts, official data, investigative sources, and interviews. Catino presents a comparative study of seven mafias around the world, from three Italian mafias to the American Cosa Nostra, Japanese Yakuza, Chinese Triads, and Russian mafia. He identifies the organizational architecture that characterizes these criminal groups, and relates different organizational models to the use of violence. Furthermore, he advances a theory on the specific functionality of mafia rules and discusses the major organizational dilemmas that mafias face. This book shows that understanding the organizational logic of mafias is an indispensable step in confronting them.

Natural Resources and Economic Development (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition): Edward B. Barbier Natural Resources and Economic Development (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition)
Edward B. Barbier
R769 Discovery Miles 7 690 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Why is natural resource exploitation not yielding greater benefits for the poor economies? In this second edition of his landmark book, Barbier explores this paradox in three parts. Part One gives a historical review of resource use and development, examining current theories that explain the under-performance of today's resource-abundant economies, and proposing a hypothesis of frontier expansion as an alternative explanation. Part Two develops models to analyse the key economic factors underlying land expansion and water use in developing countries. Part Three explores further the structural pattern of resource dependency, rural poverty and resource degradation within developing countries, and through illustrative country case studies, proposes policy and institutional reforms necessary for successful resource-based development. First published in 2005, each chapter in this new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated, with new material, tables, figures and supporting empirical evidence. It will appeal to graduate students and scholars researching environmental and developmental economics.

Working Wonders - How to Make the Impossible Happen (Paperback): Ryszard Praszkier Working Wonders - How to Make the Impossible Happen (Paperback)
Ryszard Praszkier
R489 Discovery Miles 4 890 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The difference between what's possible and what's not is a construct of the human mind, a matter of perspective, and it's one that can be changed. Working Wonders explains the fundamentals that shape the mind: how it builds walls to protect itself and how a person can tear those walls down to tackle challenges that would have previously been discounted as unrealistic. This volume shares case studies featuring people making the impossible a reality and, in doing so, changing the world for the better. On a deeper level and yet still using non-technical language, the book identifies possible neurological and psychosocial mechanisms that limit the brain, and techniques that may open it up to exploring the seemingly unachievable. Praszkier also introduces the concept of 'possibilitivity', a personality trait that reflects the propensity to perceive insurmountable challenges as doable, and concludes by presenting a portfolio of 'Do It Yourself' techniques.

R1,377 R1,299 Discovery Miles 12 990 Save R78 (6%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Cluster analysis consists of methods for finding groups in data automatically. Most methods have been heuristic and leave open such central questions as: How many clusters are there? Which clustering method should I use? How should I handle outliers? This introduction frames cluster analysis in terms of statistical models, yielding principled estimation, testing and prediction methods, and soundly-based answers to central questions. It develops basic ideas of model-based clustering in an accessible but rigorous way, using extensive real-world data examples and providing R code for many methods, and describes modern developments for high-dimensional data and networks. It explains recent methodological advances, such as Bayesian regularization methods, non-Gaussian model-based clustering, cluster merging, variable selection, semi-supervised classification, clustering of functional data, text and images, and co-clustering. Written for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students in data science, researchers, and practitioners, it assumes basic knowledge of multivariate calculus, linear algebra, probability and statistics.

R2,003 R1,847 Discovery Miles 18 470 Save R156 (8%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In 2008 the world experienced the Great Recession, a financial and economic crisis of enormous proportions and the greatest economic downturn since the 1930s. In its wake, unemployment became a key preoccupation of West European publics and politicians. This comparative study considers the policy debates surrounding unemployment in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Denmark and Switzerland since 2008. With an over-arching focus on drawing out cross-national commonalities and differences, the authors ask whether patterns of political communication vary across countries. Their analysis draws on interviews with labour market policy-makers in the six selected countries, and paints a revealing picture. Appealing to researchers in comparative politics, political communication and welfare state research, this book will also interest practitioners involved in labour market policy.

David C.M. Dickson
R1,129 R1,068 Discovery Miles 10 680 Save R61 (5%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The focus of this book is on the two major areas of risk theory: aggregate claims distributions and ruin theory. For aggregate claims distributions, detailed descriptions are given of recursive techniques that can be used in the individual and collective risk models. For the collective model, the book discusses different classes of counting distribution, and presents recursion schemes for probability functions and moments. For the individual model, the book illustrates the three most commonly applied techniques. Beyond the classical topics in ruin theory, this new edition features an expanded section covering time of ruin problems, Gerber-Shiu functions, and the application of De Vylder approximations. Suitable for a first course in insurance risk theory and extensively classroom tested, the book is accessible to readers with a solid understanding of basic probability. Numerous worked examples are included and each chapter concludes with exercises for which complete solutions are provided.

Following the successful PCS Auction conducted by the US Federal Communications Commission in 1994, auctions have replaced traditional ways of allocating valuable radio spectrum, a key resource for any mobile telecommunications operator. Spectrum auctions have raised billions of dollars worldwide and have become a role model for market-based approaches in the public and private sectors. The design of spectrum auctions is a central application of game theory and auction theory due to its importance in industry and the theoretical challenges it presents. Several auction formats have been developed with different properties addressing fundamental questions about efficiently selling multiple objects to a group of buyers. This comprehensive handbook features classic papers and new contributions by international experts on all aspects of spectrum auction design, including pros and cons of different auctions and lessons learned from theory, experiments, and the field, providing a valuable resource for regulators, telecommunications professionals, consultants, and researchers.

Institutional Economics - An Introduction (Paperback): Stefan Voigt Institutional Economics - An Introduction (Paperback)
Stefan Voigt
R895 R767 Discovery Miles 7 670 Save R128 (14%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Why is it that some countries become rich while others remain poor? Do markets require regulation to function efficiently? If markets offer an efficient way of exchanging goods, why do individuals even create firms? How are economic transactions organized in the absence of a state that could enforce contracts and guarantee property rights? Institutional economics has allowed social scientists to answer many fundamental questions about the organization and functioning of societies. This introduction to institutional economics is concise, yet easy to understand. It not only caters to students of economics but to anybody interested in this topical research area and its specific subfields. Both formal and informal institutions (such as customs, habits, and traditions) are discussed with respect to their causes and consequences, highlighting the important part they play for economic growth and development.
