BENDE-NABENDE, ANTHONY
FDI, Regionalism, Government Policy and Endogenous Growth: A Comparative Stud.
Ashgate Publishing Limited, UK. First Edition, Hardcover. New. 9780754610007 288 pages. Available Now. Book Description: This text investigates whether FDI caused spill over effects which have led to the economic growth of the ASEAN-5 economies, and if that it so, whether the ASEAN Preferential Trade Agreement (APTA) had a significant effect in attracting FDI to the region. It takes into account the different levels of economic development of the countries under analysis. The results from the structural (static) model suggest that FDI has stimulated economic growth through the human factors followed by technology transfer, international trade, and learning by doing, and that the formation of APTA had a lagged influence on FDI inflows into the advantage of the more developed member countries and the disadvantage of the less developed countries. Those from the multiplier (dynamic) effects analysis demonstrate that whereas the impact is immediate in the more developed, politically stable and foreign investment friendly economies, there is a time lag in those economies which are less developed and more hostile to FDI. The analysis presents an empirical comparison of how the level of economic development affects the interaction of FDI, regionalism and economic growth. Size: 1.9 x 15.9 x 23.5 cm. 288 pages.

Book Description: Anthony Bende-Nabende focuses on the ongoing globalization process, which has sparked an unprecendented worldwide debate. He seeks to provide a one-stop centre for a balanced coverage of the theoretical, empirical and policy issues linking globalization with foreign direct investment, regional economic integration, and economic growth and sustainable development. This text proposes policies that individual countries should pursue, based on the recognition that globalization generates both positive and negative effects.

Within contemporary society, a number of themes (globalisation, health and regulation) interlock in complex patterns, changing in response to the mix of cultural differences, regulatory preferences and available resources. To turn the kaleidoscope and to change the mix, is to change the pattern. This book is about those patterns as they arise in the contemporary legal, health and ethical context, exploring the transformations and challenges brought by technological change and the regulatory options in the contemporary global village. Book Description: Within contemporary society the themes of globalization, health and regulation interlock in complex patterns, changing in response to the mix of cultural differences, regulatory preferences and available resources. To turn the kaleidoscope and to change the mix is to change the pattern. This book is about those patterns as they arise in the contemporary legal, health and ethical context, exploring the transformations and challenges brought by technological change and the regulatory options in the contemporary global village. : Review: 'Dr Bennett offers a careful picture of the 'kaleidoscope' of complex and shifting norms which make up contemporary health law. Her breadth of vision and depth of critical insight will make this book required reading for anyone with an interest in how health care law must adapt in the face of rapidly developing scientific knowledge and the pressures and possibilities of globalisation.' Sally Sheldon, University of Kent, UK 'This book is a real gem...a beautifully polished [and] highly readable text.' Australian Journal of Primary Health 'Bennett has emerged as one of our important current voices on these fundamental issues. She writes clearly, reflectively and analytically, utilising case examples not for emotive objectives but to illustrate both the complexities of issues and the need for nuanced and flexible solutions. Her voice is one of calm and thoughtfulness in an area which too often is characterised by kneejerk reactions to issues of deep concern to us as a species...Health Law's Kaleidoscope is a constructive and thought-provoking contribution.' Journal of Law and Medicine '...this book is an informative and well-researched contribution to the literature on law, ethics and medicine. It deserves a wide readership and will appeal to scholars and students interested in the applications of feminist theory, comparative medical law and the international dimensions of health policy.'

Women in Asian Management.
Routledge, UK, 2006. First Edition, Hardcover. Fine Condition. 9780415356374 168 Pages. Both sides of the book and top foredge of the page are lightly marked. According to a recent study by the ILO (2001), women?s share of the labour force is increasing worldwide. Today, women?s participation rate in the labour force is over 40 per cent of the global workforce. Higher educational levels and falling fertility rates have contributed to this increased participation. There is also some evidence that women in some Asian countries may be less marginalised in their advancement into top managerial positions than their counterparts elsewhere. As women become more educated and qualified for managerial positions, the number of Asian women managers and executives is predicted to rise over the next decade. This book examines the opportunities and barriers for women managers in Asia and presents an update on their progress in management.

Ashgate Publishing Limited, UK, 2005. First Edition, Hardcover. Very Good Condition. 9780754645214 384 pages. Available Now. Book Description: Across Western Europe, the emphasis has shifted from physical manufacturing to the development of ideas, new products and creative processes. This has become known as the knowledge economy. While much has been written about this concept, so far there has been little focus on the role of the city. Bringing together comparative case studies from Amsterdam, Dortmund, Eindhoven, Helsinki, Manchester, Munich, Munster, Rotterdam and Zaragoza, this volume examines the cities' roles, as well as how the knowledge economy affects urban management and policies. In doing so, it demonstrates that the knowledge economy is a trend that affects every city, but in different ways depending on the specific local situation. It describes a number of policy options that can be applied to improve cities' positions in this new environment. : About the Author: Professor Dr Leo van den Berg, Dr Peter M.J. Pol and Dr Willem van Winden are at the European Institute for Comparative Urban Research (EURICUR), The Netherlands. Dr Paulus Woets is at the Dutch Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment.

BERNS, SANDRA
Women Going Backwards: Law and Change in a Family Unfriendly Society.
Ashgate Publishing Limited, UK, 2002. First Edition, Hardcover. Fine Condition/Fine. 9780754623038 232 Pages. Gender has become a culturally laden signifier. Sometimes used to differentiate the social from the biological, gender itself has become gendered. In common parlance gender issues often slide inexorably into women's issues and are in that way designated as marginal and outside the concerns and lives of ordinary men and women. In this book, signifiers such as gender, worker and family are unpacked and suggestions are made as to how common usage of these signifiers reinforce existing practices and act as barriers to change. Some of these changes are legal, others are social and others are driven by political and policy agendas. By looking at five areas: equal opportunity law, family law, industrial relations law, social welfare law and taxation law, which are all profoundly gendered, the author examines ways in which men and women see their roles and choices and how these are related to the state, as citizens. The author then examines the definition of citizenship and looks in detail at the concept of the unencumbered citizen, who is unencumbered by interpersonal obligations, responsibilities and beliefs, using comparative material from Australia, North America and the United Kingdom. Contents: The persistence of inequality; The unencumbered citizen; Equal opportunity: rhetoric and reality; The fragile family; Structuring dependence: family, state and self; Workplaces and women: an uneasy relationship; The family as signifier: tax and families; Making room for families: choices and realities; Bibliography; Index.

1137034041 BERRUECOS, GEORGE PHILIP & SUSANA, Mexico's Struggle for Public Security: Organized Crime and State Responses
BERRUECOS, GEORGE PHILIP & SUSANA
Mexico's Struggle for Public Security: Organized Crime and State Responses
Palgrave Macmillan, UK, 2012. First Edition, Hardcover. Fine Condition. 9781137034045 222 pages. Available Now. Book Description: Organized crime in Mexico has been responsible for a worrying increase in violence in that country since Felipe Calderon assumed the presidency in 2006. The country's main criminal gangs are now a real challenge to the Mexican state. Government policies aimed at combating that threat have not been very successful to date. While it is certainly possible to exaggerate the threat posed by organized crime to the Mexican state, the real problems posed are serious enough. This book considers the issue from a variety of viewpoints. The essential argument is that the organized crime is best combated by institutional reforms directed at strengthening the rule of law and winning over public opinion rather than by a heavy reliance on armed force. Some such reforms have indeed taken place in Mexico, and are discussed in the book. : Review: Editors George Philip and Susana Berruecos have overseen a volume with a remarkably diverse range of commentary on the current state of the Mexican government's increasingly military driven conflict with drug trafficking organizations (DTOs). - Criminal Law and Criminal Justice Books: This book provides a balanced view of the current situation in Mexico. The editors and authors did an exceptional job and the readers will not be disappointed. Far from the fuss, this book takes a broad look at a pressing topic in Mexico's agenda: public and national security. It goes beyond mechanistic explanations to explore social attitudes, political decisions, and institutional weakness, as well as their consequences in reshaping the new context.

Learning from Data for Aquatic and Geotechnical Environments
CRC Press, UK. First Edition, Softcover. New. 9780415391702 270 pages. Available Now. Book Description: The book presents machine learning as an approach to building models that learn from data, and that can be used to complement the existing modelling practice in aquatic and geotechnical environments. It provides concepts of learning from data, and identifies segmentation (clustering), classification, regression and control as the learning tasks. A unified methodology based on the concepts of machine learning, information theory and statistics is presented that can be followed to build models using data as well as expert knowledge. Several machine learning methods are used to extract features to build data-driven models in geotechnics. A set of regression models are built to predict sediment transport rates and assess harbour sedimentation. Controllers that replicate the control strategy of model-based optimal controllers of water systems are built for situations where fast and accurate decisions are needed. The models built demonstrate excellent performance; they may complement or even replace the existing models and can be used in practice. The performance of the models proves the effectiveness of the methodology and machine learning in general. Size: 17.4 x 1.8 x 24.6 cm. 270 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

BHIDE, KALIAPPA KALIRAJAN & SHASHANKA
A Disequilibrium Macroeconometric Model for the Indian Economy
Ashgate Publishing Limited, UK, 2003. First Edition, Hardcover. Fine Condition. 9780754634706 222 Pages. Very tiny bump to top corner of upper board. This text presents a new approach to incorporating regional details on production in a disequilibrium macroeconometric model. The early studies on disequilibrium dealt with either partial-adjustment models or models involving excess demand or supplies in markets. In this study the authors consider a different type of disequilibrium model - one in which econometric analysis makes use of the varying coefficients stochastic production frontier approach, which permits estimation and analysis of production efficiencies of individual producers. The book also presents an innovative approach to production modelling in macro econometric models as it provides a useful framework for incorporating production efficiencies and regional details of production in the macro models. It is a pioneering study that combines the stochastic frontier approach with macro econometric modelling. Primarily focused on India, it also provides insights into problems in modelling economies of other developing countries.

Human Fertilisation and Embryology: Reproducing Regulation
Routledge, UK, 2007. First Edition, Hardcover. New. 9781844720910 272 Pages. NEW. Relevant to students, academics and practitioners across the globe, this original volume highlights contemporary issues associated with assisted reproduction and embryology and critically analyzes the law surrounding human reproduction in the light of case law and technological developments since the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act (HFE Act) Act was passed in 1990. Tackling issues from an interdisciplinary perspective, the authors identify and evaluate areas that have provoked intense public and academic debate as well as those where further or renewed regulation is needed. Focusing primarily on the legal and ethical issues involved in regulating this area in the UK, which is at the forefront of developing legislation in this area, this book has international relevance as many countries have used the UK as a model for their own legislation. This text is suitable for a broad range of readers, including legal academics, law students and practitioners interested in the areas of medical/healthcare law and ethics, bioethics and moral philosophy, family law, sociology and reproductive medicine and genetics.

Ethical Issues in Governing Biobanks
Ashgate Publishing Limited, UK, 2008. First Edition, Hardcover. Very Good Condition. 9780754672555 208 pages. Available Now. Book Description: Population genomics research drawing on genetic databases has expanded rapidly, with some of this information being combined in 'biobanks'. Managing this information in an appropriate way is a highly complex ethical issue in the health policy arena. This book combines theoretical and empirical research to analyze the areas of conflict and consensus in the regulatory and ethical frameworks that have been developed to govern biobanks. Ethicists from the Department of Ethics, Trade, Human Rights and Health Law (ETH) of the World Health Organization, the Institute of Biomedical Ethics of Geneva University and the Institute of Biomedical Ethics of the University of Zurich, with the support of the Geneva International Academic Network (GIAN), examine the conditions under which genetic databases can be established, kept, and made use of in an ethically acceptable way. In addition to a comprehensive review of the scientific literature and a comparative analysis of existing normative frameworks, they present the results of in-depth interviews with experts around the world concerning the most unresolved and controversial issues. The results of that study, combined with their normative analysis, leads to recommendations for a better international framework. : Review: 'This volume is a must-read for anyone interested in biobanks, bringing together both theoretical perspectives and empirical data to shed clear light on the sometimes confusing issues of terminology, and identifying where consensus exists regarding ethics and regulation in this important area of scientific development.' Ruth Chadwick, Cardiff University, UK 'Ethical Issues in Governing Biobanks provides valuable evidence of widespread academic concern about ethical issues associated with biobanks.' Journal of the American Medical Association '[This] book provides a comprehensive overview of unresolved ethical disputes in the literature and of conflicting national and international guidelines. Even more useful, much of the book is based on an international qualitative study of the ethical opinions of bioethicists, biobank managers, medical researchers and clinicians.' Monash Bioethics Review 'The strength of the book is the rich and detailed exploration of the moral reasoning concerning a large number of controversial issues surrounding the development of new biobanks and the maintenance of existing biobanks... The authors have managed to present their material in a very lively, compelling fashion... I strongly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the topic of biobanks and who would like to understand more of the complicated discussions concerning them.'

Money, Measurement and Computation
Palgrave Macmillan, UK, 2005. First Edition, Hardcover. New/New. 9781403947932 280 pages. Edges are a little marked. In this book leading researchers from universities around the world bring together new ideas on measurement and computation of indices fro the financial sector. The book is divided into three parts. The first part contains two papers which present particularly new ideas and applications on models of the supply and demand for monetary assets in the UK. The first paper by William Barnett, Barry Jones, Milka Kirova, Travis Nesmith and Meenakshi Pasupathy explores some of the more popular cases in which cointegration is used as a basis for the construction of linear models and, and runs tests for nonlinearity of the linear combination of the cointegrated variables. The second, by John Conlon, Robert Dorsey and Norman Womer estimates the money aggregator function, using a new functional form that has a number of properties which make it useful for representing money aggregator functions. The second part contains five papers on new approaches to hypothesis testing and data analysis. This includes a new approach to the smoothing problem by Erwin Diewert and Tim Wales and developing tests for a global maximum by Robert Dorsey and Walter Mayer. The final section considers problems of money measurement and debates issue central to the performance of Divisia monetary aggregates. The conclusions are that Divisia monetary aggregates outperform their simple sum counterparts in a range of applications.
