The International Handbook
of Public Financial Management
Edited by Richard Allen, International Monetary Fund,
World Bank, Overseas Development Institute, London,
UK, Richard Hemming, Duke University, USA, Barry
Potter, IMF, USA
'The Handbook is a welcome addition to the literature
on public finance, not least because it draws on
multiple disciplines in the social sciences to provide
a rigorous and up-to-date analysis of all facets of
this important subject. As such it will surely prove
to be an invaluable resource for both academics
and practitioners of public finance.' - Emmanuel
Tumusiime-Mutebile, Bank of Uganda
'This Handbook brings together an extraordinary
array of public financial management experts
and their collective experience to provide a
comprehensive repository of cutting-edge knowledge. It is a must read for
students and practitioners especially after the global financial and Eurozone
crises have rudely awakened the world to the importance of the linkages
between public financial and macro-fiscal management and their influence
on constructing rules and institutions that can be implemented in specific
political economy contexts.' - Sanjay Pradhan, World Bank Institute
'This extremely comprehensive and well-researched volume covers topics
of tremendously broad and practical interest, written by many of the
world's leading experts on these subjects. I know of no other collection that
comes anywhere close to addressing the whole of international financial
management, from initial budget planning through adoption, execution, and
evaluation. This book represents an invaluable contribution to the field, and
will benefit students and government officials alike.' - Philip Joyce, University
of Maryland School of Public Policy and Public Budgeting & Finance
The International Handbook of Public Financial Management is essential reading
for governmental policy-makers, and practitioners and consultants working in
this field, whose importance has been highlighted by the global financial crisis.
It is a primary source for academics and students of economics, public finance,
accountancy and public policy.

Disorganized Crimes
Why Corporate Governance and Government Intervention
Failed, and What We Can Do About It
Bernard E. Munk, Munk Advisory Services, USA
'Bernard Munk brings one of the most incisive
minds in the world of business to the analysis of
modern-day corporate governance. He is a master at
critiquing the people and process weaknesses in the
system and pointing the way to a more constructive
higher ground, one in which all stakeholders of a 21st
century corporation will benefit. His book should
be high on the reading list in global boardrooms and
investment firms.' - James Kristie, Directors & Boards
'It is not often in the history of economic thought
that a book emerges which is a cross between a
Dostoyevskeite analysis of crime and punishment
and a well-reasoned assault on established doctrine.
Dr. Munk has accomplished that feat with this
monograph on corporate mis-governance. As a one time graduate student of
the University of Chicago he is dismayed that the real world of the corporate
boardroom seems to operate often in sinister fashion inconsistent with the
benign working of the invisible hands and worse still, the capital markets fail
miserably on occasion to exert any discipline. Most of the time these failures
are hidden from view but during the asset and credit bubble busts which have
become a regular feature in our age of monetary instability there have been a
series of spectacular corporate scandals. With great precision, drawing on his
own considerable business experience, Dr. Munk shows how these remained
for so long undetected and what changes in institutional arrangements are
essential to containing this on-going menace to our economic prosperity.' -
Brendan Brown, economist and The Global Curse of the Federal Reserve
Corporate misgovernance and the failure of government regulation have led to
major financial fiascos. 'Disorganized crimes' are disruptive and costly. Munk links
the two major eras of corporate misgovernance during the last decade to explain
how these events occur and what can be done to prevent them from re-occurring.

The Gold Cartel
Government Intervention on Gold, the Mega Bubble in Paper, and
What This Means for Your Future
Dimitri Speck, Staedel Hanseatic, Germany
'From my studies in economic history I am not
familiar with a single instance where a market
manipulation has been successful in the long-term.
Governments and their Agencies always impose
price support or price suppression measures (for
instance price and wage controls) but market forces
always dispose of these interventions by prices
collapsing through support levels or soaring though
the temporary controlled prices. It is my opinion that
soaring gold prices in future will completely destroy
the little credibility central banks still enjoy. This is
a very good and well researched read.' - Marc Faber,
The Gloom Boom & Doom Report
'The Gold Cartel is a brisk, articulate and convincing
read. Even so, it remains extremely sound. A miracle!' - Heinz Christian Hafke,
former German Bundesbank director
The Gold Cartel is an insightful and thought-provoking analysis of the world
market for gold, how it works, and what influences gold price. But it also lends
insight into something more disturbing the organized intervention in the gold
markets by Central Banks.

with its summaries and excellent case studies it is
a worthwhile read for anyone with an interest in

Brands are after all more about human appeal than just being a product or
service with great features. They need to have mystery and enigma to be able
to get consumers to love them. That is the secret sauce I recommend this
book for all those who dream of crafting global brands especially for large
Indian firms that operate globally.' - Times of India
"As two most well-known marketing scholars on emerging markets in the
world, Nirmalya Kumar and JB Steenkamp provide a definitive guideline for
emerging market brands here. The eight routes proposed in this book lay out
a comprehensive roadmap for those aspiring companies and countries to
effectively enter global markets, and will have a far-reaching impact in the
years to come. It also provides great insights on the transition of the economic
development mode of China. A novel and thought-provoking masterpiece!" -

Embedding CSR into Corporate Culture
Challenging the Executive Mind
Diane L. Swanson, Kansas State University, USA
"A highly innovative, easily absorbed, practically useful approach to CSR
leadership. Swanson has written one of those rare books that speaks directly
to experienced corporate practitioners, seasoned academic theorists,
and business school students. The book is peppered with tantalizing,
creative pairings: 'executive myopia' versus 'normative receptivity,' 'value
neglect' versus 'value attunement,' and 'discovery leadership versus
amoral leadership.' Swanson's goal is to persuade corporate leaders that
CSR practices can enhance economic operations and improve community
relations simultaneously. Her message to CSR scholars is to expand, enrich,
and operationalize academic understanding of business-and-community
relations. No other CSR book displays the practical appeal and theoretical
sophistication of this one." - William C. Frederick, Katz Graduate School of
Business, University of Pittsburgh, USA
Embedding CSR into Corporate Culture demonstrates that a new frontier for
corporate social responsibility is possible in theory and practice. The key idea
- discovery leadership - enables corporate managers to deal effectively with
problems, issues, and value clashes occurring at the corporation-society interface.
Contents: 1. A Call for Socially Responsible Corporate Leadership * 2. Images of the Self:

'Ongoing and recent crises have raised profound
questions about the effectiveness and virtues of
corporate social responsibility and deregulation.
However, concerns about the difficulties and costs
of developing adequate, appropriate and effective
regulation continue to command attention. This
volume sheds much light on these complex issues.'
- Jomo Kwame Sundaram, United Nations Assistant
Secretary-General for Economic Development
With a new foreword and preface, this IPE Classic
assesses the potential and limits of CSR in developing
countries, by focusing on aspects that are often
ignored in the CSR literature: historical experience, theoretical perspectives, and
institutional and political dimensions of change.

Globalizing Beauty
Consumerism and Body Aesthetics in the Twentieth Century
Edited by Hartmut Berghoff, German Historical
Institute, USA, Thomas Khne, Clark University, USA
'Chock full of useful information and marvelous
counterintuitive insights alike, this spectacular
collection demonstrates the enormous cultural
and economic ramifications of the global pursuit
of beauty. Ranging from Jewish pageant queens
and the Nazi cosmetics industry through Kikuyu
headshavings in Kenya, lipstick in Sumatra, and
muscle-men in the postwar U.S. to Muslim male
nose jobs in present-day Tehran, the essays scramble
all our assumptions about what is traditional and
what is modern. This is a fabulous and compelling
book.' - Dagmar Herzog, Graduate Center, City
University of New York, USA, and author of Sexuality
in Europe: A Twentieth-Century History
This volume aims to advance our understanding of beauty's role in modern
consumer societies by bringing together fresh scholarship that addresses a
common set of questions from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, including
especially history, but also black studies, women's studies, German studies,
sociology, and anthropology.

role of leadership in Elizabethan England across
a range of spheres, from church and state to the
economy and the theatre. A series of inter- and
cross-disciplinary interventions re-evaluate the
relative significance of personal rulership and of
popular participation in the process of governing
the late Tudor polity in international, national,
and regional contexts. Kaufman has brought
together a hugely impressive team of scholars
whose contributions cumulatively encourage a
rethink about just how 'republican' the 'monarchical
republic' of Elizabeth I could ever really have been." -
Steve Hindle, The Huntington Library, USA
Leadership an Elizabethan Culture studies the challenges confronted by
government and church leaders (local and central), the counsel given them, the
consequences of their decisions, and the views of leadership circulating in late
Tudor literature and drama.

Housework and Housewives in American
Married to the Mop
Jessamyn Neuhaus, SUNY Plattsburgh, USA
"Extensively researched in advertising archives,
mass magazines, and scholarly studies, this book
persuasively argues that advertising for cleaning,
food, and other household products has changed
only modestly over the past 110 years." - CHOICE
"Thorough and interesting ... Neuhaus offers keen
observations, and the book is well-written." -
Journalism History
"This deeply researched analysis makes a valuable
contribution to our understanding of how the
cultural figure of the housewife in modern American
advertising continues to perform the same function
as the symbol did at the end of the 1800s, despite
the widespread critique of the 1970s." - Juliann
Sivulka, Waseda University and author of Ad Women: How They Impact What
We Need, Want, and Buy
From mop-wielding turn-of-the-century housewives to modern soccer moms,
American advertising from the late 1800s to today has been consistently depicted
housework as women's work. This book analyzes print and TV ads, ad agency
documents, and trade journals to show how the housewife framed household
work as exclusively feminine care for the family.

Capital and the Debt Trap
Learning from Cooperatives in the Global Crisis
Claudia Sanchez Bajo, expert in development studies,
Belgium, Bruno Roelants, CICOPA, Belgium
'This elegant and deeply-informed inquiry weaves
together several themes, each significant in itself,
even more so as their relations are developed:
the deep and persistent crises of capitalism, in
the current phase highly financialized, and the
fundamental issue of decision-making in social and
economic institutions, with special attention to the
elaborate growth of cooperatives of many varieties,
the forms they have taken, the problems they face,
and their great promise in overcoming economic
crises, social malaise, and democratic dysfunction.'
- Noam Chomsky, Massachusetts Institute of
Technology, USA
The financial crisis is destroying wealth but is also a remarkable opportunity to
uncover the ways by which debt can be used to regulate the economic system.
This book uses four case studies of cooperatives to give an in-depth analysis on
how they have braved the crisis and continued to generate wealth.

Congresss Own Think Tank
Learning from the Legacy of the Office of Technology Assessment
Peter Blair, Natoinal Academy of Sciences, USA
"There has been no time since OTA's defunding in
1995 that the Congress needed more an institution
through which both parties could jointly base their
policy debates on the best scientifically established
facts. As Peter Blair knows from experience at
both OTA and the National Academies, the key to
informing policy alternatives by the best technical
knowledge requires scientific analysis that is
dependable, understandable, and pertinent to the
political context. Blair offers three institutional
options; without one of them our democracy will
continue to erode." - Lewis M. Branscomb, Harvard
University, USA
Congress' Own Think Tank recaps the OTA experience,
its creation, operation, and circumstances of its closure and that of organizations
attempting to fill the gap since the closure. It also covers a number of new forces
shaping the current context for science and technology issues facing the Congress.

Survival to Growth
Sam Hout, Medicines Division at TEVA Pharmaceuticals,
'This book focuses on how leaders can achieve
surviving and winning organizations by influencing
the evolution of organizational culture and
the capability and commitment of employees.
It provides and illustrates powerful and yet
conceptually simple messages, e.g. the need for
simplicity of communication, the need to ensure
that problem-solving teams have diverse and
challenging constituents, and the importance of
having a bias to action. The work's strength is that
in adopting the tenet of the importance of human
nature it effectively bridges the gap between texts
heavily reliant on deep theories of organizational
psychology and commentators relying primarily on their experiences of
management. Hout views leaders as providing shaping influence to the
generally natural-selection based evolution of an organization's culture
and mode of work.' - Dr. Andre Krol, GM Development and External Affairs,

Just the Basics, Inc.
"Kucia and Gravett provide an important evolution in leadership literature.
Drawing on interviews with CEOs of major corporations and non-profit
organizations, the authors develop a 'Balance Framework' that replaces
hierarchical management with a leadership style that blends and orchestrates
competing organizational dimensions, such as competition vs. collaboration,
in accordance with the organization's mission, structure, and culture. The
resulting balance leverages the benefits of each dimension to increase
organizational effectiveness." - Joe Pichler, retired CEO and chairman, The
Kroger Company
Leadership in Balance provides readers with a deeper understanding of the art,

'Corporate Governance has come to the forefront as
a key to corporate success or failure. In this book Ulf
Lindgren summarizes the issues around the board
such as the composition, its role and responsibilities
as well the relationships between the chairman, CEO
and the rest of the board. But most importantly he
gives very good real examples of what works and
what doesn't. This is a must read for anyone engaged
in corporate boards or corporate governance.' - Dr.
Lars Thunell, Standard Chartered Bank ltd., formerly
International Finance Corporation, part of the World
Bank Group
'This book is equally valuable for Owners, Board
Members and CEOs. All Above Board offers concrete insights and compelling
examples of models that enable these three parties to not only achieve
effective synchronization and communication of their core mission and
strategy, but to excel in the execution of this beyond the mere sum of their
collective competence. It is highly readable and full of practical takeaways.' -
Nick Kaye, Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship
Based on unique access interviews with leading chairmen and senior executives,
All Above Board examines the key functions of the ideal twenty-first century
board, how and why badly led boards fail, and what changes can be made to
improve board behavior and efficiency for best practice.

Nice Companies Finish First
Why Cutthroat Management Is Overand Collaboration Is In
Peter Shankman, Help a Reporter Out (HARO), USA
"This book's subtitle- "Why cutthroat management
is over- and collaboration is in"- says it all... This
means you can no longer treat your boss one way
and the people who report to you another...It
seems as though politeness is back on an upward
trajectory." - Third Sector magazine
"Shankman's book points out both the 'how to'
and the 'why' of becoming a nice guy and a nice
company. It is a compelling argument and one that
every CEO should consider. Read it and apply the
lessons to ensure your company too can exploit the
positive traits of nice companies and the long-term
rewards that can create." -Brain Cram
In Nice Companies Finish First, Shankman, a pioneer in modern PR, marketing,
advertising, social media, and customer service, profiles the famously nice
executives, entrepreneurs, and companies that are setting the standard for
success in this new collaborative world.

Marketing in Context
Setting the Scene
Chris Hackley, Royal Holloway University of London, UK
"Once again Professor Hackley has written the book
I wished I had. Lucid, cogent, entertaining and above
all critical, this book should be required reading
for anyone interested in a more sophisticated
understanding of the role and influence of marketing
in contemporary society." - Avi Shankar, University
of Bath
"This is an excellent book that calls for marketing
to be more contextually sensitive, creative and
theatrical in its efforts to shape the texture of the
consumer cultural context. It offers a wealth of
insights for students, theorists, practitioners and
public policy makers alike." - Mark Tadajewski,
Durham University
The best marketing doesn't just focus on the individual psychology of the
consumer, it operates at a cultural level. It frames choices so that the consumer
isn't aware their buying decisions are being influenced. Hackley shows how
marketing must set the scene and identify the broader cultural context to
successfully influence consumers.

Unconscious Branding
How Neuroscience Can Empower (and Inspire) Marketing
Douglas Van Praet, Deutsch LA, USA
"A provocative approach that should give pause to
consumers as well as marketers." - Kirkus Reviews
"Doug has been an instrumental strategic guide for
transforming and redefining the Volkswagen brand.
The behavioral insights and the rationale for why
people act as they do - uncovered in his book - have
had a profound effect on how we communicate
and behave, helping the brand achieve the highest
market share in thirty years. I would recommend
this book to anyone who wants to truly understand
how to craft communications that will truly
resonate." - Justin Osborne, Volkswagen of America
If consumers make decisions unconsciously, why do we
persist in asking them directly through traditional marketing research why they
do what they do? Unconscious Branding takes the most brilliant and revolutionary
concepts from cognitive science and applies them to how we market, advertise,
and consume in the modern digital age.

Close Calls
Managing Risk and Resilience in Airline Flight Safety
Carl Macrae, London School of Economics, UK
"Close Calls is an extremely important book because
it grounds the elusive concepts of reliability,
resilience, risk, and sensemaking in the detailed
specic practices of airline ight safety investigators.
This may sound like an exotic population to study,
but it is the brilliance of this volume to go deep into
the interpretive work of people who make a living
doing what you and I try to do everyday - make
sense of ambiguous and unexpected events. Macrae
has made the invisible visible and in doing so, has
created a beautifully written book that is required
reading for any gathering of people who want to
learn more about the specics of risk, safety, inquiry,
and performance improvement. " - Karl E. Weick,
University of Michigan, USA and Managing the Unexpected
This book offers one of the best discussions of the nature of organisational
safety I have ever read. I condently predict that it will have a major impact
upon the way safety professionals and academics think and do research.
- James Reason, University of Manchester, UK and Managing the Risks of
Organisational Accidents and The Human Contribution
Drawing on extensive and detailed fieldwork within airlinesan industry that
pioneered near-miss analysis this book develops a clear set of practical
implications and theoretical propositions regarding how all organizations can
learn from 'near-miss' events and better manage risk and resilience.
