Call Number: 338.09/H922=1/2018
(美)艾德华 休姆斯著; 吴奕俊, 陈丽丽, 张翔译 文汇出版社 2018-10

我们正生活在一个门到门时代,交通运输渗透进我们日常生活的方方面面。我们做的每件事以及碰过的每件商品,都含有成千上万甚至上百万英里的运输里程。 除了出门旅行,每一次点击鼠标、每一次购买行为、吃的每一顿饭、喝的每一口水,以及加的每一滴汽油都含有运输里程。门到门系统创造了现代的消费经济。它促成了当今世界大部分的消费品,从抽屉里便宜的拳击手套到桌上的调味瓶;它促成了品牌连锁店的产生,使之依靠物流而非商品盈利;它开创了现代外包时代,淘汰了一些采取纵向一体化策略的公司。如今,这场物流革命正在撼动与其相关的一切事物,更将消费经济推向一场巨大的变革……

反脆弱:

从不确定性中获益
Call Number: 155.24/T143=1/2014
纳西姆 尼古拉斯 塔勒布著; 雨珂译 中信出版社 2014-1

作者塔勒布在本书中所定义的“反脆弱性”,是那些不仅能从混乱和波动中受益,而且需要这种混乱和波动才能维持生存和实现繁荣的事物的特性。在《黑天鹅》中,他向我们揭示了极其罕见而不可预测的事件如何潜伏在世间万物的背后,而在《反脆弱》中,他极力为不确定性正名,让我们看到它有益的一面,甚至证明其存在的必要性,他还建议我们以反脆弱性的方式构建事物。值得注意的是,反脆弱性是一个超越复原力和强韧性的概念。复原力只是事物抵御冲击,并在重创后复原的能力;而反脆弱性则进一步超越了复原力,让事物在压力下逆势生长、蒸蒸日上。

Education

Lifelong kindergarten:

cultivating creativity through projects, passion, peers, and play
Call Number: 370.157/R434/2017
Mitchel Resnick MIT Press 2017-8

To thrive in today's fast-changing world, people of all ages must learn to think and act creatively, and the best way to do that is by focusing more on imagining, creating, playing, sharing, and reflecting, just as children do in traditional kindergartens.

Drawing on experiences from more than thirty years at MIT's Media Lab, Resnick discusses new technologies and strategies for engaging young people in creative learning experiences. He tells stories of how children are programming their own games, stories, and inventions (for example, a diary security system, created by a twelve-year-old girl), and collaborating through remixing, crowdsourcing, and large-scale group projects (such as a Halloween-themed game called Night at Dreary Castle, produced by more than twenty kids scattered around the world). By providing young people with opportunities to work on projects, based on their passions, in collaboration with peers, in a playful spirit, we can help them prepare for a world where creative thinking is more important than ever before.

Profit first:

Conventional accounting uses the logical (albeit, flawed) formula: Sales - Expenses = Profit. The problem is, businesses are run by humans, and humans aren't always logical. Serial entrepreneur Mike Michalowicz has developed a behavioral approach to accounting to flip the formula: Sales - Profit = Expenses. Just as the most effective weight loss strategy is to limit portions by using smaller plates, Michalowicz shows that by taking profit first and apportioning only what remains for expenses, entrepreneurs will transform their businesses from cash-eating monsters to profitable cash cows.

Biography

Churchill:

walking with destiny
Andrew Roberts Viking 2018-11

When we seek an example of great leaders with unalloyed courage, the person who comes to mind is Winston Churchill: the iconic, visionary war leader immune from the consensus of the day, who stood firmly for his beliefs when everyone doubted him. But how did young Winston become Churchill? What gave him the strength to take on the superior force of Nazi Germany when bombs rained on London and so many others had caved? In Churchill, Andrew Roberts gives readers the full and definitive Winston Churchill, from birth to lasting legacy, as personally revealing as it is compulsively readable.

Roberts gained exclusive access to extensive new material: transcripts of War Cabinet meetings, diaries, letters and unpublished memoirs from Churchill's contemporaries. The Royal Family permitted Roberts--in a first for a Churchill biographer--to read the detailed notes taken by King George VI in his diary after his weekly meetings with Churchill during World War II. This treasure trove of access allows Roberts to understand the man in revelatory new ways, and to identify the hidden forces fueling Churchill's legendary drive.

Science

Who we are and how we got here:

ancient DNA and the new science of the human past
Call Number: 572.86/R347/2018
David Reich Pantheon Books 2018-3

It is a groundbreaking book about how ancient DNA has profoundly changed our understanding of human history.

Geneticists like David Reich have made astounding advances in the field of genomics, which is proving to be as important as archeology, linguistics, and written records as a means to understand our ancestry.

In the book, Reich allows readers to discover how the human genome provides not only all the information a human embryo needs to develop but also the hidden story of our species. Reich delves into how the genomic revolution is transforming our understanding of modern humans and how DNA studies reveal deep inequalities among different populations, between the sexes, and among individuals. Provocatively, Reich’s book suggests that there might very well be biological differences among human populations but that these differences are unlikely to conform to common stereotypes.

本书讲述了一种风靡硅谷科技企业的全新工作模式。硅谷的两个年轻人汉娜和杰克,像很多人一样,在萌生了一个创意后,就走上创业之路。但是,很快他们发现好的想法远远不够,必须还有一套适合的管理方法确保梦想能实现。为了让创业团队生存下来,汉娜和杰克遭受了内心的苦苦挣扎和煎熬。他们患上“新奇事物综合症”,什么都想做,导致无法聚焦,同时需要不停地处理沟通问题。本书从这个险象环生的创业故事讲起,围绕一家创业公司的试错、困惑、决断和成长的全过程说明了OKR(Objectives and Key Results,目标与关键成果)方法的基本原理和实施原则。

埃克森美孚石油公司与美国权力

对财富与权力的争夺总是伴随在石油周围。这种争夺动摇了世界的经济、支配了战争的结果并且改变了人和国家的命运,所以石油公司、金融集团和各国政府之间一直联系紧密。基辛格说:“谁控制了石油,谁就控制了世界,谁就能控制对手。”石油企业一直都站在全球权力的顶峰。世界五百强中的前十大公司中,半数都是石油公司。作为全世界私人石油企业的代表,埃克森美孚石油公司俨然是一个独立的国家。因为这家公司拥有雇佣军、外交部和情报部门,掌握着国家能源命脉,可以直接安排元首会晤、左右国内政策制定,代替国防部做战争评估、支配战争的结果,还能在一些地区行驶大使馆的外交职能……所以埃克森美孚石油公司董事长雷克斯•蒂勒森辞职后,能够直接出任美国国务卿。因为管理一家石油公司和治理一个国家的工作内容几乎一样。

Foreign Direct Investment and the Chinese Economy:

A Critical Assessment
Chunlai Chen Edward Elgar Publishing 2017-10

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the impact of foreign direct investment, with extensive empirical evidence, on the Chinese economy over the last three and a half decades.

Chen presents a compelling and thorough analysis of the leading theoretical explanations of the impact of FDI through a series of rigorous and in-depth empirical investigations on China's regional economic growth, urban-rural income inequality and urbanization development. These case studies show that despite FDI's contribution to economic growth, reduction of income inequality and the rise in urbanization, there is further evidence of uneven regional distribution of FDI inflow. This has negatively affected economic growth, exacerbated income inequality and impeded urbanization of inland China. The book concludes by demonstrating that these findings have important policy implications, not only for China, but also for other developing countries influenced by the implementation of FDI policies.

Management

Supply chain risk management:

understanding emerging threats to global supply chains
John Manners-Bell Kogan Page 2017-11

With increased outsourcing, globalisation, and just-in-time production, the ability to effectively identify, assess and manage risks in the supply chain is more important than ever. This book is a practical learning resource which explores a wide range of external threats to the supply chain such as natural disasters, economic risk, terrorism and piracy. An ideal companion to academic and professional training courses, it presents a robust set of strategies which can minimise and mitigate supply chain risk.

The book includes numerous case studies, with each case documenting the company's supply chain or production strategy and outlining the catastrophic event which occurred. This comprehensive second instalment of Supply Chain Risk, which won the 2014 ACA-Bruel Special Mention prize, analyses the supply chain consequences, material losses, management response, and resultant changes to a company's supply chain strategy. With a new chapter on cyber threats to supply chains, it also includes academic pedagogy such as objectives, summaries and a key point checklist in each chapter.

Quantum negotiation:

the art of getting what you need
Call Number: 658.4052/M322/2017
Karen Walch, Stephan M. Mardyks, Joerg Schmitz Wiley 2017-12

This is a handbook for getting what you need using a mindset and behaviors based on a refreshingly expansive perspective on negotiation. Rather that viewing every negotiation as an antagonistic and combative relationship, this book shows you how to move beyond the traditional pseudo win-win to construct a deal in which all parties get what they need. By exploring who we are as negotiators in the context of social conditioning, this model examines the cognitive, psychological, social, physical, and spiritual aspects of negotiation to help you produce more sustainable, prosperous, and satisfying agreements.

We often think of negotiation as taking place in a boardroom, a car dealership, or any other contract-centered situation; in reality, we are negotiating every time we ask for something we need or want. Building more robust negotiation behaviors that resonate beyond the boardroom requires a deep engagement with others and a clear mindset of interdependence. This book helps you shift your perspective and build these important skills through a journey of discovery, reflection, and action.

This book is mainly for managers and leaders of small and medium companies and mid-level management of large companies; general public interested in managerial leadership.

New and experienced managers will benefit from principles and approaches, and checklists for managerial challenges used in the book.The book covers a broad range of managerial challenges - from role definition to strategy to communication.

how to mobilize social word of mouth (sWOM)
Call Number: 658.872/W873/2017
Natalie T. Wood, Caroline K. Muñoz Business Expert Press 2017-2

Electronic word-of-mouth (eWOM) communication has been shown to influence consumer actions across a variety of industries (King, Racherla, and Bush 2014). A significant portion of eWOM occurs on social media platforms. Whether it is a status update to Facebook of an upcoming vacation, a picture of a laundry room makeover on Pinterest, or a YouTube video discussing the features on the new iPhone, consumers are turning to a variety of social platforms to make everyday purchasing decisions easier for themselves and others. Indeed, social word of mouth (sWOM)-a subset of eWOM-has incredible reach with the potential to influence over two billion active social media consumers. The purpose of this book is to examine the influence of sWOM and provide guidance on how to operationalize its growing power. The goal of this book is to bring together industry best practices and academic research to help construct social media content that speaks with your brand voice, stimulates engagement, inspires consumers to share (#share), and complies with industry and federal guidelines. Each chapter highlights a key area of sWOM that will further readers' understanding and provide actionable information to assist readers in mobilizing positive sWOM for your company.

Ethics

Resisting corporate corruption:

cases in practical ethics from enron through the financial crisis
Stephen V. Arbogast Wiley-Scrivener 2017-10

This book teaches business ethics in a manner very different from the philosophical and legal frameworks that dominate graduate schools. The book offers twenty-eight case studies and nine essays that cover a full range of business practice, controls and ethics issues. The essays discuss the nature of sound financial controls, root causes of the Financial Crisis, and the evolving nature of whistleblower protections. The cases are framed to instruct students in early identification of ethics problems and how to work such issues within corporate organizations. They also provide would-be whistleblowers with instruction on the challenges they’d face, plus information on the legal protections, and outside supports available should they embark on that course. Some of the cases illustrate how ‘The Young are the Most Vulnerable,’ i.e. short service employees are most at risk of being sacrificed by an unethical firm. Other cases show the ethical dilemmas facing well-known CEOs and the alternatives they can employ to better combine ethical conduct and sound business strategy. Through these case studies, students should emerge with a practical toolkit that better enables them to follow their moral compass. Finally, the cases provide an in depth look at how a corporation becomes progressively corrupted (Enron), how the Financial Crisis was rooted in ethical decay at institutions as diverse as Countrywide, Goldman Sacks, Citigroup, Fannie Mae and Moody’s, and at the ethical challenges that persist in the post-Crisis, post-Dodd-Frank environment.

About the author: Stephen V. Arbogast is Professor of Practice of Finance and Director of the Energy Center at the Kenan-Flagler Business School, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

(英)托马斯 豪肯赫尔主编; 王树良译 中国友谊出版社 2017-10

本书选取十个相似的金属货币名称,通过考察它们的历史,试图揭示它们是如何成为重要的象征符号。这些名称都是众所周知的,甚至那些从来没有使用过或直接接触过这些货币的人都知道。有些虽不再作为流通货币,但仍存在于人们的记忆、语言和文化生活中。它们起源各异,并因不同的缘由而存在。货币一直是一个热门的话题,而如今比以往任何时候都更为凸显。几个世纪以来,它在全球的贸易和经济,及在发展中国家的国际地位和发言权,以及宗教和帝国版图的拓展,都起着举足轻重的关键作用。

匡特家族:

"德国制造"幕后的传奇缔造者
卢蒂格 荣布卢特著; 丁树玺译 中译出版社 2018-1

宝马、奔驰、阿尔塔纳化学品集团、生产毛瑟步枪的德意志武器和弹药厂、瓦尔塔电池公司……这些光芒炫目的“德国制造”背后,都闪烁着一个家族的身影——匡特家族。匡特家族是世界上*富有的家族之一,在公众视野中却近乎“隐形”。家族成员保持着从19世纪中叶沿袭下来的家族传统——谦逊、低调、自信与坚忍,从不使用家族姓氏作为产品商标或企业名称,也鲜少在媒体上曝光,却是名至实归的“德国女首富”“德国前十大富豪”,并且多位名列“福布斯全球富豪榜”。《匡特家族》讲述匡特家族从18世纪迁往勃兰登堡直至今天的历史。第一代是创始者,埃米尔·匡特从勃兰登堡的一家纺织厂发家。第二代是发展者,金特·匡特拥有商业天赋,能准确地预测市场趋势并擅长与政府打交道。第三代是创新者,两大家族分支分割家族资产,选择了不同的传承模式。今天,匡特家族的第四代成员已经登上历史舞台,其中德国女首富、宝马大股东苏珊娜·克拉滕和斯蒂芬·匡特最受瞩目,在21世纪续写着家族传奇。

荣格自传:

回忆, 梦与思考

荣格说,人的一生是一个毫无把握的实验——到头来,我这一辈子仅有的值得一提的事情,竟是那些从永恒之境闯入了短暂之界的刹那。在《回忆、梦与思考:荣格自传》中,荣格所讲的主要是内在经验——他的梦和幻象。这些内在事件塑造了荣格奇特而多彩的一生,也构成了这部自传的主要内容。正是借助梦、回忆、幻象、炼金术以及各种深刻的沉思,得益于从内在事件的角度去认识自我的思考方式,荣格才最终完成了自性化道路,找到了本命所归。对于一直在探寻活着的意义的现代人来说,踏上荣格的自我发现之旅,也许会让我们产生一种豁然开朗、孤独尽去的体验,帮助我们找到自己独特的人生价值和生而为人的意义。

作者简介:荣格(C.G.Jung),瑞士心理学家、精神分析医师和分析心理学的创立者。早年曾与弗洛伊德合作,后来由于两人观点不同而决裂。他提出了“情结”的概念以及内倾和外倾两种心理类型的理论,主张把人格分为意识、个人无意识和集体无意识三层。作为人类历史上最杰出的心理学家之一,荣格的著述极为丰富,主要内容以精神分析为主,同时涉及文学、历史、神学、宗教、人类学、文化学等诸多方面,代表作品有《荣格自传》《心理类型》《分析心理学》《原型与集体无意识》等。

Economics

The end of theory:

financial crises, the failure of economics, and the sweep of human interaction
Call Number: 330.019/B724/2017
Richard Bookstaber Princeton University Press 2017-5

Our economy may have recovered from the Great Recession—but not our economics. In The End of Theory, Richard Bookstaber discusses why the human condition and the radical uncertainty of our world renders the standard economic model—and the theory behind it—useless for dealing with financial crises. What model should replace it? None. At least not any version we've been using for the past two hundred years. Instead, Bookstaber argues for a new approach called agent-based economics, one that takes as a starting point the fact that we are humans, not the optimizing automatons that standard economics assumes we are.

Bookstaber's groundbreaking paradigm promises to do a far better job at preventing crises and managing those that break out. As he explains, our varied memories and imaginations color our economic behavior in unexpected hues. Agent-based modeling embraces these nuances by avoiding the mechanistic, unrealistic structure of our current economic approach. Bookstaber tackles issues such as radical uncertainty, when circumstances take place beyond our anticipation, and emergence, when innocent, everyday interactions combine to create sudden chaos. Starting with the realization that future crises cannot be predicted by the past, he proposes an approach that recognizes the human narrative while addressing market realities.

Sweeping aside the historic failure of twentieth-century economics, The End of Theory offers a novel and innovative perspective, along with a more realistic and human framework, to help prevent today's financial system from blowing up again.

When things don't fall apart:

global financial governance and developmental financial in an age of productive incoherence
Call Number: 332.042/G727/2017
Ilene Grabel, Foreword by Dani Rodrik MIT Press 2018-1

In this book, Ilene Grabel challenges the dominant view that the global financial crisis had little effect on global financial governance and developmental finance. Most observers discount all but grand, systemic ruptures in institutions and policy. Grabel argues instead that the global crisis induced inconsistent and ad hoc discontinuities in global financial governance and developmental finance that are now having profound effects on emerging market and developing economies. Grabel's chief normative claim is that the resulting incoherence in global financial governance is productive rather than debilitating. In the age of productive incoherence, a more complex, dense, fragmented, and pluripolar form of global financial governance is expanding possibilities for policy and institutional experimentation, policy space for economic and human development, financial stability and resilience, and financial inclusion. Grabel draws on key theoretical commitments of Albert Hirschman to cement the case for the productivity of incoherence. Inspired by Hirschman, Grabel demonstrates that meaningful change often emerges from disconnected, erratic, experimental, and inconsistent adjustments in institutions and policies as actors pragmatically manage in an evolving world.

Grabel substantiates her claims with empirically rich case studies that explore the effects of recent crises on networks of financial governance (such as the G-20); transformations within the IMF; institutional innovations in liquidity support and project finance from the national to the transregional levels; and the “rebranding” of capital controls. Grabel concludes with a careful examination of the opportunities and risks associated with the evolutionary transformations underway.

The age of agile:

Call Number: 658.4063/D411/2018
Stephen Denning AMACOM (American Management Association) 2018-2

Agile began emerging many decades ago, but truly took off in the software development industry. Sparking dramatic improvements in quality, innovation, and speed-to-market, the Agile movement is now spreading quickly throughout all kinds of companies. It enables a team, a unit, or an enterprise to nimbly adapt and upgrade products and services to meet rapidly changing technology and customer needs. And the process is applicable anywhere — companies don’t need to be born Agile, like Spotify. Even centuries-old Barclays is making the transition and reaping rewards.

Filled with examples from every sector, this book helps readers to master the three laws of agile management (team, customer, network), embrace the new mindset, overcome constraints, employ meaningful metrics, and make the entire organization agile.

Team creativity and innovation

Call Number: 658.4022/T253/2018
Edited by Roni Reiter-Palmon Oxford University Press 2017-12

For the past two decades, creativity and innovation have been viewed by researchers as critical to organizational success and survival. Understanding the factors that facilitate or inhibit creativity and innovation at the individual level has been the focus of much of the research in this area. However, while earlier work on teams considered the working dynamics of the group as a context variable with individual creativity the outcome, research now emphasizes group creativity as the intended, desired outcome. This shift in thought has occurred because many of the problems routinely facing organizations are complex and cannot be solved by a single individual at the helm.

Edited by Roni Reiter-Palmon, Team Creativity and Innovation provides readers with a state-of-the-art review of the major concepts and current research related to the demonstrable benefits of team creativity and innovation. In this volume, Reiter-Palmon and contributors explore such topics as team collaboration and communication, trust and psychological safety, team diversity, social networks, conflict, organizational learning, and more as a way to introduce readers to the issues that matter most in today's modern, forward-thinking workplace.

If you're in a dogfight, become a cat! strategies for long-term growth

Call Number: 658.4012/S553/2017
Leonard Sherman Columbia University Press 2017-1

This book explains how businesses such as Yellow Tail survive and thrive in industries embroiled in “dogfights”—intense competition among established companies for a small piece of the market. FedEx, Apple, Southwest Airlines, and Starbucks have thrived as cats by differentiating their businesses, aligning their goals and practices, and continuously innovating their products. Rather than compete head-on with other PC manufacturers, Apple introduced a new category of tablet devices to unlock latent demand for mobile computing.

Psychology

A brain for business-- a brain for life:

how insights from behavioural and brain science can change business and business practice for the better
Call Number: 158.7/O547/2018
Shane O'Mara Switzerland: Palgrave Macmillan 2017-10

The brain matters in business. The problem is that our brains have many biases, heuristics and predilections that can distort behaviour and decision making. The good news is that we know more about how these work than ever before.

Behaviour change is hard, but O’Mara shows that by adopting strategies that are well-founded in the science of brain and behaviour individuals and organisations can adapt to the demands of the modern world. O’Mara’s starting point is that, as our behaviour arises from the structure and function of our brains, careful examination of a series of brain–based (‘neurocognitive’) analyses of common aspects of human behaviour relevant to business and management practice reveals lessons that can be used at work.

He begins by looking at neuroplasticity and how it is enables a shift from a restrictive ‘fixed mindset’ to an enabling ‘growth mindset’. He shows how this changing mindset approach – where the focus is on task and improvements based on effort – is scalable within organizations. Next, as the brain is a living organ like the heart and lungs, O’Mara shows how to keep it physically in the best possible shape before examining how we exercise control over our behaviour, build resilience and create positive brain states. He also considers the implications for business of our brains wiring for status and illustrates how research shows that it is possible to de-bias assumptions about gender and race – and the impact that this has on performance.

About the author: Shane O’Mara is Professor of Experimental Brain Research and a Wellcome Trust Senior Investigator at Trinity College Dublin.

The ethical practice of consulting psychology

Call Number: 158.7/L918/2018
Rodney L. Lowman and Stewart E. Cooper American Psychological Association 2017-10

This volume provides an overview of these issues for consulting psychologists, graduate students, and practitioners in other fields who want to transition to organizational consulting. Using the APA Ethics Code as its foundation, the book teaches readers how to make ethical decisions when conducting assessments and applying interventions with individual employees, work groups, and entire organizations, small and large.

Authors Rodney Lowman and Stewart Cooper explore common themes in ethical practice, including informed consent, confidentiality, multiple relationships, conflicts of interest, and competence. They demonstrate how these issues manifest differently in the work environment through vivid case examples that bring to life the concrete work of consulting psychologists. These informative vignettes teach readers how to negotiate complex challenges, such as when organizational demands and corrupt business practices come into conflict with psychologists’ ethical responsibilities. Special attention is also given to emerging areas of practice, including telepsychology, multinational and multicultural consulting, and coaching.

The net and the butterfly:

the art and practice of breakthrough thinking
Call Number: 153.35/C112/2017
Olivia Fox Cabane and Judah Pollack Portfolio/Penguin 2017-3

The creative mode in your brain is like a butterfly. It's beautiful and erratic, hard to catch and highly valued as a result. If you want to capture it, you need a net. Enter the executive mode, the task-oriented network in your brain that help you tie your shoes, run a meeting, or pitch a client. To succeed, you need both modes to work together--your inner butterfly to be active and free, but your inner net to be ready to spring at the right time and create that "aha!" moment. But is there any way to trigger these insights, beyond dumb luck?

Thanks to recent neuroscience discoveries, we can now explain these breakthrough moments--and also induce them through a series of specific practices. It turns out there's a hidden pattern to all these seemingly random breakthrough ideas. From Achimedes' iconic moment in the bathtub to designer Adam Cheyer's idea for Siri, accidental breakthroughs throughout history share a common origin story. In this book, you will learn to master the skills that will transform your brain into a consistent generator of insights.

Drawing on their extensive coaching and training practice with top Silicon Valley firms, Cabane and Pollack provide a step-by-step process for accessing the part of the brain that produces breakthroughs and systematically removing internal blocks.

Politics

Governing hybrid organisations

exploring diversity of institutional life
Call Number: 658.046/J652/2018
Jan-Erik Johanson and Jarmo Vakkuri Routledge 2017-8

Intuitively, organisations can easily be categorised as ‘public’ or ‘private’. However, this book questions such a black and white dichotomy between public and private, and seeks a deeper understanding of hybrid organisations. These organisations can be found at micro, meso and macro levels of societal activity, consisting of networks between companies, public agencies and other entities. The line between these two realms is increasingly blurred ― giving rise to hybrid organizations.

This book presents an engaging discussion around hybrid organisations, highlighting them as important and fascinating examples of modern institutional diversity. Chapters examine the changing landscape of service delivery and the nature and governance of hybrid organisations, using international examples and cases from different service contexts. The authors put forward a clear analytical framework for understanding hybrid governance, looking at strategy and performance management.

Culture

The sum of small things:

a theory of the aspirational class
Elizabeth Currid-Halkett Princeton University Press 2017-5

In today’s world, the leisure class has been replaced by a new elite. Highly educated and defined by cultural capital rather than income bracket, these individuals earnestly buy organic, carry NPR tote bags, and breast-feed their babies. They care about discreet, inconspicuous consumption―like eating free-range chicken and heirloom tomatoes, wearing organic cotton shirts and TOMS shoes, and listening to the Serial podcast. They use their purchasing power to hire nannies and housekeepers, to cultivate their children’s growth, and to practice yoga and Pilates. In The Sum of Small Things, Elizabeth Currid-Halkett dubs this segment of society “the aspirational class” and discusses how, through deft decisions about education, health, parenting, and retirement, the aspirational class reproduces wealth and upward mobility, deepening the ever-wider class divide.

Exploring the rise of the aspirational class, Currid-Halkett considers how much has changed since the 1899 publication of Thorstein Veblen’s Theory of the Leisure Class. In that inflammatory classic, which coined the phrase “conspicuous consumption,” Veblen described upper-class frivolities: men who used walking sticks for show, and women who bought silver flatware despite the effectiveness of cheaper aluminum utensils. Now, Currid-Halkett argues, the power of material goods as symbols of social position has diminished due to their accessibility. As a result, the aspirational class has altered its consumer habits away from overt materialism to more subtle expenditures that reveal status and knowledge. And these transformations influence how we all make choices.

With a rich narrative and extensive interviews and research, The Sum of Small Things illustrates how cultural capital leads to lifestyle shifts and what this forecasts, not just for the aspirational class but for everyone.

Manufacturing

Advanced manufacturing:

the new American innovation policies
William B. Bonvillian and Peter L. Singer MIT Press 2018-1

The United States lost almost one-third of its manufacturing jobs between 2000 and 2010. As higher-paying manufacturing jobs are replaced by lower-paying service jobs, income inequality has been approaching third world levels. In particular, between 1990 and 2013, the median income of men without high school diplomas fell by an astonishing 20% between 1990 and 2013, and that of men with high school diplomas or some college fell by a painful 13%. Innovation has been left largely to software and IT startups, and increasingly U.S. firms operate on a system of “innovate here/produce there,” leaving the manufacturing sector behind. In this book, William Bonvillian and Peter Singer explore how to rethink innovation and revitalize America's declining manufacturing sector. They argue that advanced manufacturing, which employs such innovative technologies as 3-D printing, advanced material, photonics, and robotics in the production process, is the key.

Bonvillian and Singer discuss transformative new production paradigms that could drive up efficiency and drive down costs, describe the new processes and business models that must accompany them, and explore alternative funding methods for startups that must manufacture. They examine the varied attitudes of mainstream economics toward manufacturing, the post-Great Recession policy focus on advanced manufacturing, and lessons from the new advanced manufacturing institutes. They consider the problem of “startup scaleup,” possible new models for training workers, and the role of manufacturing in addressing “secular stagnation” in innovation, growth, the middle classes, productivity rates, and related investment. As recent political turmoil shows, the stakes could not be higher.

语言与制序:

经济学的语言与制度的语言之维
Call Number: 330.1/W521/2014
韦森著 商务印书馆 2014-9

本书为“当代中国经济学人”系列丛书之“韦森作品系列”之四。作者把自己近年来从语言哲学的视角反思经济学,尤其是社会制度的经济分析的一些探索 整理成册,梳理自己对这一领域研究的认识。

通过阅读本书,读者可以梳理出语言与制序的关系和相互作用机制:(1)正是因为人具有内在语法或者说内化语言,人才有自在行为和自由行动中一致性,因而人作为人的语言官能中初始状态本身就意味着人是遵从规则的动物——也因而人的行为是自由的,但不是“自然的”和任意的。(2)正是因为人作为人有共同的先天语言结构和心智中原初状态上的一致性,人与人才能进行社会博弈,才能互相沟通和理解,才会在博弈和相互反应中生成种种生活形式即我所理解的种种制序。(3)正是因为有了内化语言以及外化语言,以及在外化语言中有从内化语言中内含的先天生成语法转化而来的外在语法(表层语法),人们才能用之建构或界定规则,尤其是调节性规则,主要是通过符合外在语法的语言和语句编织或者说“建构”起来。秩序只有在语言中才成为规则,或者更确切地说,只有由语言所界定和规定的秩序才称为“规则”,因而所有制序实在均与语言密切相关,或者说是一个语言现象,或与语言这种“元制序”密不可分。

未来董事会

本书介绍了企业在未来几年内将面临的最为迫切的变化,也解释了董事会应以怎样的方式来运作,才能在快节奏、动荡的商业市场中保持必要的敏捷性。

科技的发展、企业经营环境的变化,各国经营法律的变化,需要董事会的董事们具备前瞻性视野和准确的战略把握能力。如何投资、何时引入新技术、如何进行战略选择,都是他们面对的难题和责任;同时公司外部环境的深入变革都要求对公司治理进行一场深刻的思考。作者认为,未来的董事会需要在各领域做得更专业,以期能够有能力进行综合评估,来保证履行其职责。为此,公司有必要对董事会组成的组织架构、成员构成、任职时间和董事报酬进行深入的评估。在本书中,你将会找到改进董事会过程的基础理论和实用指南,使用实际的案例分析来加强理解这一过程中的关键问题。

Economics

Completing Capitalism:

Heal Business to Heal the World
Call Number: 330.122/R673/2017
Bruno Roche, Jay Jakub Barrett-Koehler Publishers 2017-5

For the past fifty years, leaders in the business world have believed that their sole responsibility is to maximize profit for shareholders. But this obsessive focus was a major cause of the abuses that nearly sunk the global economy in 2008. In this analytically rigorous and eminently practical book, Bruno Roche and Jay Jakub offer a more complete form of capitalism, one that delivers superior financial performance precisely because it mobilizes and generates human, social, and natural capital along with financial capital. They describe how the model has been implemented in live business pilots in Africa, Asia, and elsewhere. Recent high-profile books like Capital in the Twenty-First Century have exposed financial capitalism's shortcomings, but this book goes far beyond by describing a well-developed, field-tested alternative.

Financing Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Emerging Markets

Call Number: 338.04/C335/2018
Lourdes Casanova, Peter Klaus Cornelius, Soumitra Dutta Academic Press 2017-11

This book offers an original perspective on the links between macro data on innovation, data on micro-entrepreneurial processes and venture capital supply. The authors synthesize two disparate fields of research and thinking―innovation and entrepreneurship and economics―to illuminate how domestic companies compete and the business environment in which entrepreneurial firms operate. Its broad scope and firm linkages between processes at different levels leapfrogs research topics. For those investigating entrepreneurship and innovation in the early stages of economic development, this book demonstrates how micro and macro foundations of productivity, and hence economic growth and development, are inextricably intertwined.

Management

Strategy beyond the hockey stick:

people, probabilities, and big moves to beat the odds
Call Number: 658.4012/B811/2018
Chris Bradley, Martin Hirt, Sven Smit John Wiley & Sons, Inc. 2018-2

Mining the data from thousands of large companies, McKinsey Partners Chris Bradley, Martin Hirt and Sven Smit open the windows of that room, and bring an “outside view.” They found three discrete groups of companies: the bottom quintile with massive economic losses; the long, flat, middle 60 percent with practically no economic profit; and the top 20 percent to whom all the value accrues.

Some companies do achieve real hockey stick performance: but just 1-in-12 jump from the middle tier to the top over a ten year period. This does not happen by magic—there is an empirically-backed science to improve your odds of success by capitalizing on your endowment, riding the right trends, and most importantly, making a few big moves.

To make these big moves happen, you’re going to have to break through inertia, gamesmanship and risk aversion. You’re going to have to mitigate human biases and manage group dynamics. Eight practical shifts can help you do this, and unlock bigger, bolder, better strategies.

国民经济, 国民经济学及其方法

Call Number: 330.1/S356=1/2017
(德)古斯塔夫 冯 施穆勒著; 黎岗译 商务印书馆 2017-11

本书是德国新历史学派经济学领袖古斯塔夫·冯·施穆勒的重要著作之一,它系统而扼要地阐述了施穆勒的方法论体系。 经济学方法论可能是施穆勒留给我们的最重要的学术遗产。他一方面反对古典经济学试图从几个简单的前提推导出永恒有效的“经济定律”的做法,另一方面提倡运用归纳方法和跨学科工具,对经验事实进行广泛渗入的研究,认为只有这样做才能总结出经济活动的规律性。另外,他否认自由放任的市场能够自动提高整个社会的福利,认为经济学家有责任在道德理想的指引下,探索和建设更高级、更美好的社会经济制度。 在经济政策领域,施穆勒及其同仁最大的功绩是促使俾斯麦政府建立了世界上第一个社会福利系统,为工人阶级提供医疗、养老等最低限度的保障;在学术领域,施穆勒等一批德国经济学家使德国经济学的世界影响力达到了顶峰。 施穆勒提出的研究范式是一个意义重大的社会、经济分析框架,相对于主流经济学,它很可能是最具潜力的替代和补充方案。

克里斯托弗 G. 布林顿, 蒋濛著; 万锋译 中信出版社 2018-2

不论是用手机打电话还是用WiFi 上网,都需要分享网络媒介。就像空气一样,你需要和许多其他人共享。在这种情况下,怎么可能不干扰彼此的连接呢?今天的许多网站都需要处理大量原始数据,以找到有效的排序方法。像谷歌这样的搜索引擎如何对呈现给我们的结果进行排序?亚马逊和网飞(Netflix)等在线零售及娱乐公司拥有很多顾客。网站如何为广告商分配空间?我们是否能够对大众的意见产生影响,使产品评价及推荐更加准确和有用?为何有些视频会出现病毒式传播?在社交网络中,某些人是否比其他人更具影响力?

通过简单的语言、类比、故事以及数百幅插图,两位专家通俗易懂地解答了这些问题,描述了网络的核心理念。Alphabet董事长埃里克•施密特,威瑞森无线前首席执行官丹尼斯•斯特里格尔,以及“互联网之父”温顿·瑟夫和罗伯特·卡恩也在本书中分享了他们宝贵的见解。

Call Number: 658/B959=1/2017
(美)戴维 布尔库什著; 赵竞欧译 中信出版集团 2017-7

美国在线DVD租赁商网飞(Netflix)为什么鼓励员工随心所欲地休假? 全球领先的信息技术服务商源讯公司(Atos SE)为什么禁止公司员工使用电子邮件? 给每一位中途离职的员工提供奖金,亚马逊子公司Zappos和它的创始人谢家华是不是疯了? 很多公司明文禁止员工谈论工资,为什么全食超市(Whole Foods)却推行薪资透明化管理? 谁说招聘仅仅是HR的工作?为什么全员参与招聘,反倒让谷歌找到了更适合的人才? 在《新管理革命》一书中,享有国际盛誉的奥罗尔罗伯茨大学商学院教授戴维•布尔库什博士系统研究了全世界范围内上千家高速成长型公司,对上述问题做出了回答。他的研究结果一公布就引发热议,因为极具颠覆性而震惊了整个管理界。 他认为,当工作的本质从工业型转变到知识型,当公司需要员工解决问题和设计新产品,新型管理系统应该以员工为中心。伟大的领导者一直关注于这项原则并重新改造工厂以最大化所需效率。在这场新管理革命中,这些公司都找到了更高效的运行方法。这些挑战思维定式的人就是工厂创新者:他们正在打造一个更好的发动机。结果就是更优秀的公司以及更出色的管理。 在《新管理革命》中,布尔库什博士系统总结了知识经济时代的13项全新的管理法则,这些法则的核心是:坚持员工第一,顾客第二,通过提升员工幸福感达到提高客户满意度;取消管理层,把管理者的职责下放到曾经的被管理者身上;对招聘过程进行重组和革命,让员工参与招聘的过程;取消年度绩效考评,鼓励季度反馈讨论等。

廉价的代价:

资本主义, 自然与星球的未来
Call Number: 303.44/P295=1/2018
(美)拉杰 帕特尔, 詹森 W. 摩尔著; 吴文忠, 何芳, 赵世忠译 中信出版集团 2018-3

作者运用前沿的生态学研究、西方列强殖民史、原住民斗争史和其他被压迫人群的反抗史,阐明资本主义正是通过廉价战略——使自然、货币、劳动、关怀、食物、能源和生命保持廉价——才造成了当今世界的现状及资本主义即将灭亡的趋势。

这是一本让人耳目一新的、再认识资本主义的伟大著作。跟其他同类书相比,本书的独特性在于作者主张从 “世界-生态”理论的视角下去理解资本主义。该理论主张用生命网络(web of life)的方式思考人类历史,研究权力、生产和再生产是如何通过生命网络实现的。作者认为资本主义是集权力、资本和自然界于一体的各种关系的集合,资本主义在追求无穷无尽积累的驱动下,通过不断开辟新边疆而实现全球扩张。新边疆是资本与自然界的交汇区,正是在一个一个新边疆,资本主义国家运用暴力、文化、知识确保廉价战略得以贯彻,才获得巨大的市场。

Tomorrow 3.0:

transaction costs and the sharing economy
Call Number: 338.51/M966/2018
Michael C. Munger Cambridge University Press 2018-3

With the growing popularity of apps such as Uber and Airbnb, there has been a keen interest in the rise of the sharing economy. Michael C. Munger brings these new trends in the economy down to earth by focusing on their relation to the fundamental economic concept of transaction costs. In doing so Munger brings a fresh perspective on the 'sharing economy' in clear and engaging writing that is accessible to both general and specialist readers. He shows how, for the first time, entrepreneurs can sell reductions in transaction costs, rather than reductions in the costs of the products themselves. He predicts that smartphones will be used to commodify excess capacity, and reaches the controversial conclusion that a basic income will be required as a consequence of this new 'transaction costs revolution'.

Sport entrepreneurship:

developing and sustaining an entrepreneurial sports culture

Here, the entrepreneurial process is usually initiated by organizations, people or governments who are embedded in both economic and social contexts. The development of technologies that have enhanced the diffusion of information and the creation of new international markets has impacted sports entrepreneurship activities.

The goal of this book is to introduce readers to emerging issues in sport entrepreneurship and management. The book focuses on the role of entrepreneurship in the sports context by examining how to leverage the opportunities that arise from networks and optimize resources by identifying where they can most effectively be put to use. As a unique discipline, sport entrepreneurship helps to identify the conditions under which and the processes in which upcoming business ventures need to be pursued.

Meltdown:

why our systems fail and what we can do about it
Call Number: 158.1/C623/2018
Chris Clearfield and András Tilcsik Penguin Press 2018-3

A crash on the Washington, D.C. metro system. An accidental overdose in a state-of-the-art hospital. An overcooked holiday meal. At first glance, these disasters seem to have little in common. But surprising new research shows that all these events--and the myriad failures that dominate headlines every day--share similar causes. By understanding what lies behind these failures, we can design better systems, make our teams more productive, and transform how we make decisions at work and at home.

Weaving together cutting-edge social science with riveting stories that take us from the frontlines of the Volkswagen scandal to backstage at the Oscars, and from deep beneath the Gulf of Mexico to the top of Mount Everest, Chris Clearfield and András Tilcsik explain how the increasing complexity of our systems creates conditions ripe for failure and why our brains and teams can't keep up. They highlight the paradox of progress: Though modern systems have given us new capabilities, they've become vulnerable to surprising meltdowns--and even to corruption and misconduct.

But Meltdown isn't just about failure; it's about solutions--whether you're managing a team or the chaos of your family's morning routine. It reveals why ugly designs make us safer, how a five-minute exercise can prevent billion-dollar catastrophes, why teams with fewer experts are better at managing risk, and why diversity is one of our best safeguards against failure. The result is an eye-opening, empowering, and entirely original book--one that will change the way you see our complex world and your own place in it.

Politics

Class attitudes in America:

sympathy for the poor, resentment of the rich, and political implications
Call Number: 305.50973/P679/2018
Spencer Piston Cambridge University Press 2018-4

This book explains a long-standing puzzle in American politics: why so many Americans support downwardly redistributive social welfare programs, when such support seems to fly in the face of standard conceptions of the American public as anti-government, individualistic, and racially prejudiced. Bringing class attitudes into the analysis, Spencer Piston demonstrates through rigorous empirical analysis that sympathy for the poor and resentment of the rich explain American support for downwardly redistributive programs - not only those that benefit the middle class, but also those that explicitly target the poor. The book captures an important and neglected component of citizen attitudes toward a host of major public policies and candidate evaluations. It also explains why government does so little to combat economic inequality; in key instances, political elites downplay class considerations, deactivating sympathy for the poor and resentment of the rich.

Computer Science

Big data:

a very short introduction
Call Number: 005.7/H749/2017
Dawn E. Holmes Oxford University Press 2018-1

"Big Data" represents a qualitative change, not simply a quantitative one. The term refers both to the new technologies involved, and to the way it can be used by business and government. Dawn E. Holmes uses a variety of case studies to explain how data is stored, analyzed, and exploited by a variety of bodies from big companies to organizations concerned with disease control. Big data is transforming the way businesses operate, and the way medical research can be carried out. At the same time, it raises important ethical issues; Holmes discusses cases such as the Snowden affair, data security, and domestic smart devices which can be hijacked by hackers.

Enlightenment now:

a manifesto for science, reason, humanism, and progress
Call Number: 306/P655/2018
Steven Pinker Allen Lane 2018-2

We're living longer, healthier, safer and more affluent lives-not just in the West, but worldwide. Why? In Enlightenment Now, Pinker proposes that human progress is the gift of a coherent value system that many of us embrace without even knowing it. The values of the Enlightenment underlie all our modern institutions and deserve credit for the stupendous progress we have made. The progress we have enjoyed is not, of course, an excuse for complacency: Some of the challenges we face today are unprecedented in their complexity and scope. The way to deal with these challenges, Pinker argues, is to treat them as problems to solve, as we have solved other problems in our past. Putting the case for an Enlightenment newly recharged for the 21st century, Pinker shows how, by using our faculties of reason and sympathy to understand the world and to enhance human flourishing, we can tackle problems that inevitably come with being products of evolution in an entropic universe.

Management

The power of company culture:

how any business can build a culture that improves productivity, performance and profits
Call Number: 302.35/D996/2018
Chris Dyer KoganPage 2018-2

Culture is the foundation for success in any organization. It's no coincidence that the companies with the strongest cultures not only consistently top the leaderboards of best places to work but also have the most engaged workforces, are the most in-demand employers and have the strongest financial performance. This book debunks the myth that a remarkable company culture is something that a business either has or hasn't and shows how any company of any size can implement and maintain a world-class culture for business success.

Structured around the seven pillars of culture success, this book will show how to develop a company culture that improves productivity, performance, staff retention, company reputation and profits. Packed full of insights from leading practitioners at the forefront of developing outstanding company cultures including Michael Arena, Chief Talent Officer at General Motors, and Sheri Conaway, Director of People at Southwest Airlines, this is essential reading for all HR Managers and business leaders who are responsible for building, monitoring and managing culture in their organizations.

Pragmatism and organization studies

Philippe Lorino Oxford University Press 2018-2

This book argues that Pragmatist thought can contribute to those approaches offering some theoretical argument, both as a general intellectual orientation and as a conceptual toolbox. As a general attitude, Pragmatism develops a radical critique of all the dualisms which often hinder organization studies: Thought and action, design and utilization, decision and execution, reality and representation, to name a few. As a conceptual toolbox, Pragmatism can contribute and clarify key concepts for organization and management studies, such as inquiry, semiotic mediation, habit, abduction, trans-action, and valuation.

Designing a purposeful world:

the sustainable development goals as a blueprint for humanity
Call Number: 338.927/W746/2018
Clive Wilson Routledge 2018-3

In September 2015, at the United Nations, world leaders agreed on seventeen Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs. This book extrapolates the SDGs into the idea of a purposeful world. In this context, the purpose for humanity is to thrive sustainably alongside other life forms and to consciously celebrate the process. The SDGs serve as a powerful vision, time-stamped at the 2030 time horizon, not just for world leaders but for us all. However, faced with the challenges of implementing the SDGs, we (including business leaders, government leaders and anyone wishing to make a difference) can feel overwhelmed.

Wilson takes the reader on a journey of thought and invites them to work out their personal role in sustainability as well as their collaborative role alongside others in their communities and organisations. Written in a very accessible style, the book celebrates some of the many achievements made by ordinary people as a catalyst for hope, sets out a number of achievable goals and provides exercises to enable the reader to adopt practices that help to make a difference. It is the perfect book to help turn the SDGs into action at every level – governmental, organisational and personal.

Contestants, Profiteers, and the Political Dynamics of Marketization:

How Shareholders gained Control Rights in Britain, Germany, and France
Call Number: 330.122/C156/2018
Helen Callaghan Oxford University Press 2018-3

This book highlights the role of "profiteers" in political efforts to expand market-based competition. Political struggles surrounding the gradual marketization of corporate control in Britain, Germany and France from the 1860s provide empirical illustration. The book maps and analyzes the path-dependent evolution of support for shareholder rights relating to takeover bids among key interest groups, including managers, creditors, shareholders, and takeover service providers, as well as among political parties. By comparing the self-reinforcing and self-undermining policy feedback of market-enabling and market-restraining rules, it helps explain why market containment is an uphill struggle, while market expansion becomes easier with time.

Blending economic analysis with political drama, this book is a groundbreaking account of the euro's history and tragic consequences. In this vivid and compelling chronicle, Ashoka Mody describes how the euro improbably emerged through a narrow historical window as a flawed compromise wrapped in a false pro-European rhetoric of peace and unity. Drawing on his frontline experience, Mody situates the tragedy in a fast-paced global context and guides the reader through forced--and unforced--errors eurozone authorities committed during their long financial crisis.

Pharmaceutical economics and policy:

perspectives, promises, and problems
Stuart O. Schweitzer and Z. John Lu Oxford University Press 2018-6

Pharmaceuticals constitute a relatively small share of the total healthcare expenditure in most developed economies, and yet they play a critical role in the ongoing debate over how best to advance, improve, and afford healthcare. Despite this, and perhaps because of this, the industry has had, for many years, an outsized claim to fame and controversy, praise and criticisms, support and condemnation. Unfortunately, many participants in the debate do not fully understand the complexities of the industry and its role in the overall healthcare system.

The analytical tools of economics provide a strong foundation for a better understanding of the dynamics of the pharmaceutical industry, its contribution to health and healthcare, its dual and often conflicting priorities of affordability and innovation, as well as the various private and public policy initiatives directed at the sector. This third edition of a uniquely comprehensive and balanced examination of the industry includes several new chapters on important topics such as the full-fledged generics sector, the arrival of biosimilars or generic biological drugs, the global consolidation of manufacturers, the evolving reimbursement landscape, and the emergence of the world's most populous nations, such as China, India, and Brazil, as both suppliers and consumers of pharmaceutical products. Other chapters have been fully rewritten or extensively updated, covering such important topics as the cost efficiency of research and development, pace of new innovations, economic evaluation and value-based pricing of drugs, and public and private interventions in the industry.

The great leveler:

violence and the history of inequality from the Stone Age to the twenty-first century
Call Number: 305/S318/2017
Walter Scheidel Princeton University Press 2017-1

Are mass violence and catastrophes the only forces that can seriously decrease economic inequality? To judge by thousands of years of history, the answer is yes. Tracing the global history of inequality from the Stone Age to today, Walter Scheidel shows that inequality never dies peacefully. Periods of increased equality are usually born of carnage and disaster and are generally short-lived, disappearing with the return of peace and stability. The Great Leveler is the first book to chart the crucial role of violent shocks in reducing inequality over the full sweep of human history around the world.

Scheidel identifies and examines these processes, from the crises of the earliest civilizations to the cataclysmic world wars and communist revolutions of the twentieth century. Today, the violence that reduced inequality in the past seems to have diminished, and that is a good thing. But it casts serious doubt on the prospects for a more equal future.

An essential contribution to the debate about inequality, the book provides important new insights about why inequality is so persistent—and why it is unlikely to decline anytime soon.

Sociology

The predictive postcode:

the geodemographic classification of British society
Call Number: 304.20941/W371/2018
Richard Webber & Roger Burrows SAGE 2018-4

It is not lost on commercial organisations that where we live colours how we view ourselves and others. That is why so many now place us into social groups on the basis of the type of postcode in which we live. Social scientists call this practice "commercial sociology."

Webber and Burrows together chart the origins of this practice and explain the challenges it poses to long-established social scientific beliefs. To help readers evaluate the validity of this form of classification, the book assesses how well geodemographic categories track the emergence of new types of residential neighbourhood and subject a number of key contemporary issues to geodemographic modes of analysis.

Advancing human development:

theory and practice
Call Number: 338.9/S849/2018
Frances Stewart, Gustav Ranis, and Emma Samman Oxford University 2018-3

This book traces the evolution of approaches to development, showing how the Human Development approach emerged as a consequence of defects in earlier strategies. It argues that Human Development is superior to measures of societal happiness. It investigates the determinants of success and failure in Human Development across countries over the past forty years, taking a multidimensional approach to point to the importance of social institutions and social capabilities as essential aspects of change. It analyses political conditions underlying the performance of Human Development, and surveys global progress in multiple dimensions such as life expectancy, infant mortality, and education and outcomes, whilst reflecting on dimensions which have worsened over time, such as rising inequality and declining environmental conditions. These deteriorating conditions inform Advancing Human Development's account of the challenges to the Human Development approach, covering the insufficient attention paid to macroeconomic conditions and the economic structure needed for sustained success.

In this volume, the macro-structural conditions that shape creative industries, their institutional, categorical and structural dynamics, are examined to provide an overview of new trends and emerging issues in scholarship on this topic. Creative industries offer products and services that range from the prosaic to the sublime and provide meaning to our lives, and this volume features a wide range of examples, from advertising, to architecture, art markets, Champagne wine, fashion and music.

Contributors examine topics such as the micro-interactions of brokerage relations; how actors transform a brokerage role from control to co-production to enact creative leadership; how investors provide legitimacy to the new categories such as abstract art; how technological disintermediation creates alternative category processes such as authenticity; how social relations shape social evaluation; how prototypical producers can trespass categories and avert negative evaluation; how personal styles enable social evaluation; and how the ambiguity of a category, such as Swing music, facilitated its adaptability and longevity. The volume concludes with an Afterword examining research on creative industries as a form of cultural product and a category in itself.

Psychology

Pre-suasion:

a revolutionary way to influence and persuade
Call Number: 153.852/C565/2016
Robert Cialdini Simon & Schuster 2018-9

What separates effective communicators from truly successful persuaders? Using the same combination of rigorous scientific research and accessibility that made his Influence an iconic bestseller, Robert Cialdini explains how to capitalize on the essential window of time before you deliver an important message. This “privileged moment for change” prepares people to be receptive to a message before they experience it. Optimal persuasion is achieved only through optimal pre-suasion. In other words, to change “minds” a pre-suader must also change “states of mind.”

History

Unfinished business:

the unexplored causes of the financial crisis and the lessons yet to be learned
Call Number: 330/B361/2017
Tamim Bayoumi Yale University Press 2017-10

A penetrating critique tracing how under-regulated trading between European and U.S. banks led to the 2008 financial crisis-with a prescription for preventing another meltdown There have been numerous books examining the 2008 financial crisis from either a U.S. or European perspective. Tamim Bayoumi is the first to explain how the Euro crisis and U.S. housing crash were, in fact, parasitically intertwined. Starting in the 1980s, Bayoumi outlines the cumulative policy errors that undermined the stability of both the European and U.S. financial sectors, highlighting the catalytic role played by European mega banks that exploited lax regulation to expand into the U.S. market and financed unsustainable bubbles on both continents. U.S. banks increasingly sold sub-par loans to under-regulated European and U.S. shadow banks and, when the bubbles burst, the losses whipsawed back to the core of the European banking system. A much-needed, fresh look at the origins of the crisis, Bayoumi's analysis concludes that policy makers are ignorant of what still needs to be done both to complete the cleanup and to prevent future crises.

Computer Science

Lost and founder:

the mostly awful, sometimes awesome truth about building a tech startup
Call Number: 658.11/F537/2018
Rand Fishkin Portfolio/Penguin 2018-9

Fishkin pulls back the curtain on tech startup mythology, exposing the ups and downs of startup life that most CEOs would rather keep secret. For instance: a minimally viable product can be destructive if you launch at the wrong moment. Growth hacking may be the buzzword du jour, but initiatives to your business can fizzle quickly. Revenue and profitability won't protect you from layoffs. And venture capital always comes with strings attached.

In the book, Fishkin reveals the mostly awful, sometimes awesome truth about startup culture with the transparency and humour that his hundreds of thousands of blog readers have come to love. Fishkin's hard-won lessons are applicable to any kind of business environment and this book can help solve your problems, and make you feel less alone for having them.

This book empowers you to join what may be the most important conversation of our time. It doesn't shy away from the full range of viewpoints or from the most controversial issues--from superintelligence to meaning, consciousness and the ultimate physical limits on life in the cosmos.

The market for green products has expanded rapidly over the last decade, but most consumers need something more than eco-benefits to motivate their purchases. Magali A. Delmas and David Colgan argue that many green products now offer the total package―a "green bundle" that checks the environmental box, but also offers improved performance, health benefits, savings, and status.

The Green Bundle offers some of the effective communication techniques for pushing consumers in the right direction.

Hammer and silicon:

the Soviet diaspora in the US innovation, economy: immigration, innovation, institutions, imprinting, and identity
Sheila M. Puffer, Daniel J. McCarthy, Daniel M. Satinsky Cambridge University Press 2018-5

This deeply personal book tells the untold story of the significant contributions of technical professionals from the former Soviet Union to the US innovation economy, particularly in the sectors of software, social media, biotechnology, and medicine. Drawing upon in-depth interviews, it channels the voices and stories of more than 150 professionals who emigrated from 11 of the 15 former Soviet republics between the 1970s and 2015, and who currently work in the innovation hubs of Silicon Valley and Boston/Cambridge. Using the social science theories of institutions, imprinting, and identity, the authors analyze the political, social, economic, and educational forces that have characterized Soviet immigration over the past 40 years, showing how the particularities of the Soviet context may have benefited or challenged interviewees' work and social lives. The resulting mosaic of perspectives provides valuable insight into the impact of immigration on US economic development, specifically in high technology and innovation.

助推:

如何做出有关健康, 财富与幸福的最佳决策
(美)理查德 塞勒, 卡斯 桑斯坦著; 刘宁译 中信出版社 2018-3

作者塞勒说这本书写的时候有两个目的,第一个目的是所谓的行为经济学的一些技术和方法,来影响这个公共政策的制定。第二个目标是想制造一种新的所谓的思考模式,这种思考模式无论左翼政党还是右翼政党都可以共同使用的。这个行为经济学的一个原则就是要在经济学当中引用心理学的一些相关方法来分析人的行为。

本书介绍了,什么是我们一生中耗时最多、最费心力的事?是做出大大小小的决策。但是,我们往往深陷难以计数的偏见和非理性中,做出荒谬的判断。通过本书,你将了解什么是助推,以及助推如何能够帮助我们提升智慧,做出更明智的决策。事实上,不需要强制性手段,也不需要硬性的规定,助推便能保证你同时收获“自由选择权”。这股轻轻推动你做出最优选择的力量,就是“助推”。

作者简介:理查德·塞勒,2017年诺贝尔经济学奖得主。芝加哥大学商学院教授,金融与行为经济学教授,美国国民经济研究局(NBER)主管行为经济学的研究工作。其研究主要集中于心理学、经济学等交叉学科,被认为是“现代行为经济学和行为金融学领域的先锋经济学家”。

欧洲的衰退与复兴
Call Number: 320/P636=1/2018
托马斯 皮凯蒂著; 洪晖, 张琛琦译 中信出版集团 2018-5

为什么一场来自美国私营金融部门的危机会演变成旷日持久的全球性金融危机?这场危机及其产生的余波对整个世界造成了怎样的影响?

当过去辉煌的高速增长戛然而止,去工业化过程日益凸显,发达国家遭遇了怎样的发展难题?当这些国家中掌握大量金融资本和文化资本的群体从全球化中赚得盆满钵满时,那些最底层的民众又该何去何从?

作为世界经济中的重要一环,欧洲的复兴与发展至关重要。面对一团乱麻的政治和经济危局,作为欧盟核心的法国和德国应当发挥怎样的作用?它们曾经走过哪些弯路,未来又该如何突破小我的局限,为整个欧洲贡献自己应有的力量?

作者托马斯·皮凯蒂在本书中分析着世界范围内的各种政治和经济局势,措辞简短,可又一针见血,让读者从主流以外,以一种全新的角度看到事情的关键。

释放有限资源的无限潜能
Call Number: 153.35/S698=1/2018
(美)斯科特 索南沙因著; 仝琳译 中信出版社 2018-7

我们往往不假思索地认为,“获得更多”是成功的关键,个人想要更多的财富,公司想要更多的资源,国家追求富国强军——多就代表成功。这样的人被称为“追逐者”,他们信奉一条准则,即“拥有更多资源=获得更好的结果”。殊不知,他们已经陷入不可持续的“正反馈游戏”而无法自拔,盲目地接受他人所认为的有效资源,总是觉得自己不具备成功的条件。

而那些善于发掘并利用已有资源潜能的人,会尝试以标新立异的方法来利用手头上的有限的东西。所谓的竞争对手,是用来帮助他们提升自身素质的,他们能够使苦苦挣扎的品牌摇身一变成为时尚新潮流,让被人遗忘的工人摇身一变成为明星员工。他们信奉的准则是“更好地利用资源=获得更好的结果”。

尽管我们不可能拥有理想中的所有有效资源,但我们手中的筹码的确比我们想象中的还要多。无论是领导公司,开启职业生涯,还是养家糊口,在这个对创造力具有前所未有的渴求的时代,最终的赢家是延展者,而非追逐者。

Call Number: 909.82/H254=1/2018

尤瓦尔•赫拉利认为,智人之所以能够崛起成为地球的主宰者,主要原因在于其具备了虚构故事的能力。然而,在当前这样一个分化的世界,我们对旧故事已失去信心,对新故事亦远未达成共识。

本书提出,当前人类社会面临着科技颠覆、生态崩溃和核战争三大挑战。“国家”这一身份认同已不足以应对今天的挑战,任何一个国家都无法独立解决全球性问题。人工智能和生物技术正在颠覆原有的社会结构和分配方式,数据成为最重要的资源。当数据巨头比我们更了解自己,当“在线”成为一种生存方式,如何规范数据的所有权?能否建立起一个维护人类自由和平等的全球社群?人工智能和生物技术已使人类掌握了重塑和重新设计生命的能力。我们该如何运用这种能力,上演另一出全新大戏?

在一个信息爆炸却多半无用的世界,清晰的见解就成了一种力量。对于关乎人类命运的种种议题,尤瓦尔•赫拉利在《今日简史》中没有简单给出答案,而是引发了我们进一步思考。

基因既是遗传物质的基本单位,也是一切生物信息的基础,破解了基因的运行机制,也就破 解了生命的奥秘,人类的病理、行为、性格、疾病、种族、身份、命运也就有了更新的答案。如今,基因测序、基因克隆等基因技术迅速发展,人类基因组计划也完成了全部人类基因的比对与测序工作,人类征服基因的时代已经到来。

这本书完整讲述了基因理论的起源、发展和未来,按照时间顺序和故事情节展开,是一部反映基因发展史的传记。《基因传》也是一部科学家们在探究基因奥秘的过程中攻坚克难的故事,像侦探小说一样,以科学家们不断遇到的新问题为线索步步深入,既深入浅出地梳理了基因理论的脉络,又真实记录了科学家们的合作与斗争、成功与失败。它也讲述了基因理论被政治歪曲利用导致的历史灾难和教训,以及基因技术与制度、文化、伦理、道德的冲撞和博弈。

平行宇宙理论世界级研究权威——迈克斯·泰格马克教授(《生命3.0》作者)告诉我们,这一切都可能发生!苍茫宇宙可分为四层多重宇宙,每一层多重宇宙又包含无数层平行宇宙。也就是说,所有已经发生的和即将可能发生的,都有可能在不同平行宇宙中重演!而生命、宇宙和万物的终极问题的答案也隐藏其中!

在这场物理学和宇宙学的终极智力冒险中,迈克斯·泰格马克教授从“实在是什么”开始,从极大的尺度和极小的尺度开始,带领读者踏上了探索宇宙终极本质的神秘旅程,并得出了堪称“惊世骇俗”的结论:宇宙不只是被数学所描述,宇宙本身就是数学!无论你能否接受他的假说,这一幅宏大的宇宙图景都将让我们感慨宇宙与生命的微不足道!

China's road of green development

Call Number: 338.951/X6/2018
Xie Zhenhua, Pan Jiahua Foreign Language Press 2018-4

This book closely focuses on the theme of "green development" and fully demonstrates the progress China has made in resource conservation, pollution control, and ecological protection since the launch of reform and opening up in 1978, and especially the splendid achievements of ecological progress since the 18th CPC National Congress in 2012. From the “development pain” of the traditional development model to the construction of ecological civilization, ecological progress has been included in the CPC’s overall blueprint of the “Five-point Strategy.” This book covers a breadth of topics including ecological construction, the circulation economy, the low-carbon smart city, green consumption, climate change, and global contribution to sustainable development. From the anti-nature concepts of “changing Heaven and Earth” and victory over nature” in the past, China is moving to today’s green development philosophy that is in harmony with nature, from the traditional agriculture civilization and the modern Western industrial civilization to a new era of ecological civilization. The authors demonstrate a panoramic green transformation to readers at home and abroad – a more beautiful China.

Food citizenship:

food system advocates in an atmosphere of distrust
Call Number: 338.19/G618/2018
Ray A. Goldberg Oxford University Press 2018-6

Changing societal expectations and scientific and medical advances have made the drivers of the food system--the world's food citizens--realize they must take more responsibility for society's nutritional needs, economic development, and the health of the environment. Goldberg argues that the traditionally commodity-oriented, bargaining relationship between segments of the food system has become win-win, collaborative, and characterized by public and private partnerships. Those who are responding to society's needs are succeeding; those who are not are losing out.

The food system's greatest growth area is the developing world, where millions of small-scale producers, workers, and impoverished consumers need help to become part of the commercial food system. In this book, Ray Goldberg interviews the change makers of today's food system: leaders and constructive critics in government, private industry, nonprofits, and academia who provide a panoramic and in-depth look at a revolution in progress.

Digital Human:

The Fourth Revolution of Humanity Includes Everyone
Call Number: 303.4833/S628/2018
Chris Skinner John Wiley & Sons Ltd. 2018-6

For the first time, everyone on the planet can connect with everyone else through the digital network. This is transforming lives through financial inclusion and digital identities. It means everyone can talk, trade and transact—anytime, anywhere. Such a radical revolution has happened only three times in human history: becoming human, becoming civilised and becoming commercial. Becoming digital is the fourth revolution, and it is changing the very nature of humanity.

Chris Skinner, author of the bestselling Digital Bank, explores the transformations that are sweeping through all spheres of life: the domination of global digital giants; the advent of new financial structures (FinTech); the disruption brought about by new forms of currency like bitcoin; the challenges facing traditional banks; the uplifting of the world’s poor; and the rise of artificial intelligence.

Digital Human is a visionary roadmap for the future, a timely guide on how to navigate the worlds of business and finance as we create the next generation of humanity.

Linked Innovation:

commercializing discoveries at research centers
Call Number: 338.926/S618/2018
Josemaria Siota Palgrave Macmillan 2017-8

Questioning why research centers so often fail to commercialize discoveries, this book explores the concept of linked innovation, which promises to drive economic sustainability while preserving academic quality at research centers. The author examines the gaps in the innovation process and identifies eight symptoms of broken innovation. Providing empirical research into areas such as performance metrics, design thinking, industry collaboration, and innovation ecosystems, this comprehensive study covers 28 mechanisms and 12 business models for driving growth in those centers. Essential reading for managing directors at research institutions and academics, Linked Innovation draws on examples from leading research centers at universities, in industry and government. Based on a four-year analysis of 3,881 centers in 107 countries, the book looks at institutions such as Harvard, Oxford and organizations such as Roche, Google, Fraunhofer and NASA to name a few.

Social Sciences

Entertainment Science:

data analytics and practical theory for movies, games, books, and music
Call Number: 658.8001/H516/2018
Thorsten Hennig-Thurau, Mark B.Houston Springer International Pu 2018-9

The entertainment industry has long been dominated by legendary screenwriter William Goldman’s “Nobody-Knows-Anything” mantra, which argues that success is the result of managerial intuition and instinct. This book builds the case that combining such intuition with data analytics and rigorous scholarly knowledge provides a source of sustainable competitive advantage, the same recipe for success that is behind the rise of firms such as Netflix and Spotify, but has also fueled Disney’s recent success. Unlocking a large repertoire of scientific studies by business scholars and entertainment economists, the authors identify essential factors, mechanisms, and methods that help a new entertainment product succeed. The book thus offers a timely alternative to “Nobody-Knows” decision-making in the digital era: while coupling a good idea with smart data analytics and entertainment theory cannot guarantee a hit, it systematically and substantially increases the probability of success in the entertainment industry. Entertainment Science is poised to inspire fresh new thinking among managers, students of entertainment, and scholars alike.

Behind every successful grant is a smart strategy. Paul Brest and Hal Harvey draw on the experiences of hundreds of foundations and non-profits to explain how to deliver on every dollar. They present the essential tools to help readers create and test effective plans for achieving demonstrable results. Brest and Harvey tackle thorny issues, such as how to choose among different forms of funding, how to measure progress, and when to abandon a project that isn't working.

The willing world:

shaping and sharing a sustainable global prosperity
Call Number: 304.2/B116/2018
James Bacchus Cambridge University Press 2018-7

In this time of unwillingness, the right kinds of global solutions are needed now more than ever. Climate change is here and intensifying. Anxieties over economic globalization grip many in the fear of change. While these fearful have turned inward into unwillingness, the world's willing are working harder than ever for international and other cooperative solutions. James Bacchus explains why most of the solutions we need must be found in local and regional partnerships of the willing that can be scaled up and linked up worldwide. This can only be achieved within new and enhanced enabling frameworks of global and other international rules that are upheld through the international rule of law. To succeed, these rules and frameworks must for the first time see and treat economy and environment as one. The Willing World explains how best we can build the right legal structure to attain our global goals and summon and inspire the willingness needed to do it.

Netflix and the re-invention of television

Call Number: 384.555/J541/2018
Mareike Jenner Palgrave Macmillan 2018-7

This book deals with the various ways Netflix reconceptualises television as part of the process of TV IV. As television continues to undergo a myriad of significant changes, Netflix has proven itself to be the dominant force in this development, simultaneously driving a number of these changes and challenging television’s existing institutional structures. This comprehensive study explores the pre-history of Netflix, the role of binge-watching in its organisation and marketing, and Netflix’s position as a transnational broadcaster. It also examines different concepts of control and the role these play in the history of ancillary technologies, from the remote control to binge-watching as Netflix’s iteration of giving control to the viewers. By focusing on Netflix’s relationship with the linear television schedule, its negotiations of quality and marketing, as well as the way Netflix integrates into national media systems, Netflix and the Re-invention of Television illuminates the importance of Netflix’s role within the processes of TV IV.

Ethics

The auditor:

Quo Vadis?
Call Number: 657.45/K521/2018
Mervyn King, Linda de Beer Routledge 2018-6

The audit profession is at a tipping point. Without significant innovation in its business model, staff recruitment strategies and audit execution processes, the audit profession may not remain relevant in the 21st century. The number of claims against auditors has significantly increased over the past twenty years due to the spate of corporate and audit failures early in the 21st century (Enron, Worldcom, Parmalat, etc.). Regulation to monitor professional and ethical standards has increased, leading audit firms to feel under even more financial pressure. In addition, the investor community is calling for greater insight and foresight from auditors. These challenges, coupled with the unlimited liability regime of auditors still applicable in many jurisdictions, are making audit firms and regulators nervous as to the systemic risk of another one of the Big 4 failing. And yet, the audit profession is in place to protect businesses, their wider stakeholder groups, including clients and investors, and society at large. Therefore, this book asks the important question about the profession's future and engages a broad readership in the discussion of audit failure and reform.

Mindset

Call Number: 153.8/D989/2017
Carol S. Dweck Robinson, an imprint of Little, Brown Book Group 2017-1

World-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck, in decades of research on achievement and success, has discovered a truly groundbreaking idea-the power of our mindset.

Dweck explains why it's not just our abilities and talent that bring us success, but whether we approach them with a fixed or growth mindset. She makes clear why praising intelligence and ability doesn't foster self-esteem and lead to accomplishment, but may actually jeopardize success. With the right mindset, we can motivate our kids and help them to raise their grades, as well as reach our own goals-personal and professional. Dweck reveals what all great parents, teachers, CEOs, and athletes already know: how a simple idea about the brain can create a love of learning and a resilience that is the basis of great accomplishment in every area.

实体店大量倒闭,昔日的零售帝国逐渐衰落……随着新零售图景的迅速展开,资本已开始疯狂地抢占这块边界不清的蛋糕,这种“变天”几乎让传统零售商们无所适从。 到底什么是新零售?在新零售的世界里,传统零售商们真的无路可逃吗? 新零售并非指机器人代替真人售货员,也不是指“即拿即走”的无人超市,更不是指一种零售形式胜过另一种形式。道格·史蒂芬斯指出,个性化和顾客参与才是新零售生态系统的命脉。 他为实体零售商们敲响了警钟,同时也为它们提供了在新零售世界转换角色的思路——打破一切边界,创造“门店即媒体”“媒体即门店”的生态环境。

大浪潮:

崛起的发展中世界
(美)斯蒂芬 拉德勒著; 黄兰淇译 中信出版社 2018-7

我们生活的时代是一个世界历史上全球贫困问题取得最重大进展的时代。在此之前,从未有如此多的发展中国家、如此多的人取得过如此大的进步。在这样短的时间里,贫困得到缓解,收入不断提升,健康得以改善,冲突与战争减少,民主的思想得以传播。

本书讲述了这场发生在全球贫困人口身上的引人注目的经济、社会与政治变革。作者用一部分篇幅来说明一些因素,比如冷战的结束、民主的进步、突破性新技术的发展、全球一体化程度的加深、地方行动及有魄力的领导,还有某些情形下的好运气等。如何共同产生影响、改善了全世界贫穷国家里数以亿计的人民的命运。这些非凡的变革是怎样发生的?为什么一些国家向前发展,而另一些则止步不前?这些变革对于世界其他国家和地区又意味着什么?最重要的是,这些成果能够保持吗?抑或是这股发展进步的大浪潮终会因为气候变化、资源需求、人口压力、经济政治管理不善以及可能发生的战争等因素的合力而脱离原本的轨道? 作者在书中表达了自己的见解。

Call Number: 332.4/R735=1/2018
(美)肯尼斯 S. 罗格夫著; 纪晓峰, 李君伟, 张颖译 机械工业出版社 2018-6

本书作者集中探讨了逐步取消纸币的必要性。因为目前在世界范围内,流通中需要用到现金的机会越来越少,但是流通中的现金数量依然庞大。那么这些现金究竟流到哪里去了?作者通过研究发现,现金大部分被用在了逃税、腐败等非法交易上,以逃避一些监管。同时,纸币的存在也对货币政策造成了一定的干扰,因为它限制了中央银行实施负利率的可能性。在金融危机过后,这一问题越发突显。作者认为逐步取消现金是解决大量社会痼疾的重要一步,但也需要注意过渡期间可能出现的问题,从担心个人隐私的泄露、维持社会整体物价稳定到需要为穷人提供补贴性借记卡等,作者都提出了相应的应对措施。

"错误"的行为:

行为经济学的形成
(美)理查德 塞勒著; 王晋译 中信出版社 2018-3

传统经济学的假设前提是,经济活动的主体是理性的经济人。研究伊始,塞勒就意识到人类与像《星际迷航》中的斯波克那样没有情感的理性人完全不同。不管是购买闹钟、转售篮球门票,还是申请抵押贷款,我们都会存在某种偏见,所做出的决定与经济学家假设的标准理性模型相去甚远。换句话说,我们的行为并不理性,甚至在传统经济学家看来是“错误”的。更重要的是,这种“错误”的行为会导致严重的后果。起初,经济学家并不屑于研究人们的错误判断及其对市场的影响,他们认为这只是一种引人发笑的“小伎俩”,无足轻重。不过,如今这些关于人类行为的研究却帮助我们在工作和生活中做出了更好的决定,也促使政府制定出更有效的政策。

本书点缀着塞勒与传统经济学思想激烈交锋的有趣故事,以独特的方式探索了人类深层次的弱点。当经济学遇到心理学,碰撞出的火花将对个人、管理者和决策者产生深远和富有启发性的影响。

作者简介:理查德·塞勒(Richard H. Thaler),2017年诺贝尔经济学奖得主,其主要著作还包括《赢家的诅咒》,以及与卡斯•桑斯坦合著的畅销书《助推》。

The Fed and Lehman Brothers:

setting the record straight on a financial disaster
Laurence M. Ball Cambridge University Press 2018-7

The bankruptcy of the investment bank Lehman Brothers was the pivotal event of the 2008 financial crisis and the Great Recession that followed. Ever since the bankruptcy, there has been heated debate about why the Federal Reserve did not rescue Lehman in the same way it rescued other financial institutions, such as Bear Stearns and AIG. The Fed's leaders from that time, especially former Chairman Ben Bernanke, have strongly asserted that they lacked the legal authority to save Lehman because it did not have adequate collateral for the loan it needed to survive. Based on a meticulous four-year study of the Lehman case, The Fed and Lehman Brothers debunks the official narrative of the crisis.

Management

Corporate governance in contention

Call Number: 658.4/C822/2018
Ciaran Driver, Grahame Thompson Oxford University Press 2018-8

Corporate governance is a complex idea that is often inappropriately simplified as a cookbook of recommended measures to improve financial performance. Meta studies of published research show that the supposed benign effects of these measuresindependent directors or highly incentivised executives - are at best context-specific. There is thus a challenge to explain the meaning, purpose, and importance of corporate governance. This volume addresses these issues. The issues discussed centre on relationships within the firm e.g. between labour, managers, and investors, and relationships outside the firm that affect consumers or the environment.
