Global Energy Assessment (GEA) by GEA Writing Team( )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,013 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Global Energy Assessment (GEA) brings together over 300 international researchers to provide an independent, scientifically based, integrated and policy-relevant analysis of current and emerging energy issues and options. It has been peer-reviewed anonymously by an additional 200 international experts. The GEA assesses the major global challenges for sustainable development and their linkages to energy; the technologies and resources available for providing energy services; future energy systems that address the major challenges; and the policies and other measures that are needed to realize transformational change toward sustainable energy futures. The GEA goes beyond existing studies on energy issues by presenting a comprehensive and integrated analysis of energy challenges, opportunities and strategies, for developing, industrialized and emerging economies. This volume is an invaluable resource for energy specialists and technologists in all sectors (academia, industry and government) as well as policymakers, development economists and practitioners in international organizations and national governments"--
Achieving a sustainable global energy system : identifying possibilities using long-term energy scenarios by Leo Schrattenholzer( )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 736 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sustainable development and global climate change have figured prominently in scientific analysis and international policymaking since the early 1990s. This book formulates technology strategies that will lead to environmentally sustainable energy systems, based on an analysis of global climate change issues using the concept of sustainable development. The authors focus on environmentally compatible, long-term technology developments within the global energy system, while also considering aspects of economic and social sustainability." "Policymakers, economists and researchers working on sustainability, energy economics, and technology change and innovation will welcome this topical and highly readable book."--Jacket

Demographic trends and patterns in the Soviet Union before 1991 by Wolfgang Lutz( )

3 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides an overview of demographic trends and patterns in the republics of the Soviet Union. Presenting data evaluated by leading Soviet and Western demographers, much of it only recently available, the book forms the first international compendium of demographic research on the former USSR. With the exception of migration (on which there is insufficient data) the book provides a comprehensive and detailed review of Soviet demographic change - fertility, marriage and the family, mortality, and age structure - through the twentieth century
Population and climate change by Brian C O'Neill( Book )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Population and Climate Change provides a systematic in-depth treatment of links between two major themes of the 21st century: population growth and associated demographic trends such as aging and climate change." "This book will be of primary interest to researchers in the fields of climate change, demography, and economics. It will also be useful to policymakers and NGOs dealing with issues of population dynamics and climate change, and to teachers and students on courses such as environmental studies, demography, climatology, economics, earth systems science, and international relations."--Jacket
Managing innovation in Japan : the role institutions play in helping or hindering how companies develop technology by Chihiro Watanabe( )

9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why do some country’s hi-tech firms innovate better than others? Why did hi-tech firms from the United States outperform such Japanese companies in the 1990s? Through a wealth of empirical evidence, the book compares the development trajectory of manufacturing technology and information technology both between Japanese companies and between companies based in the US, Europe, Australia, India and China. This book shows that institutional systems such as culture, tradition, consumers and local business practices play key roles in how companies develop technology. These factors also influence the very characteristics of the products that the hi-tech firms produce. With a number of case studies the author demonstrates how the most successful and innovative companies recognize these roles and incorporate them into their practices
The Future population of the world : what can we assume today? by Wolfgang Lutz( Book )

20 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The geometry of ecological interactions : simplifying spatial complexity by Ulf Dieckmann( Book )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The field of theoretical ecology has expanded dramatically in the past few years, while some of the most interesting work has been done using spatial models with stochasticity. This timely volume brings together the work of leading researchers working with this model and explores its role in the study of ecosystem dynamics. With its mathematically rigorous treatments, applications to real ecological problems, and proposals for extending the use of such modeling techniques in the future, this resource will be of great interest to all researchers in theoretical ecology, mathematical biology, and ecosystems analysis
Power and negotiation( Book )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Power and Negotiation produces new findings about the concept of power and about its applications in negotiation. Rejecting the notions of power as a resource and power as an ability, the work defines power as an act that is designed to cause another party to move in a desired direction, thus separating the concept both from its source and from its effects and leaving it open to much more detailed analysis. At the same time, this book examines perceived power on the basis of which symmetries and asymmetries in the relations between parties can be identified." "Power and Negotiation will appeal to students of negotiation strategy and international relations."--Jacket

9 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Political scientists, sociologists, social psychologists, and war-making and peace-making strategists, among others, examine the various forms escalation can take and relate them to conceptual advances in the analysis of negotiation. They argue that structures, crises, turning points, demands, readiness and ripeness can often define the conditions where the two concepts can meet and the authors take this opportunity to offer lessons for theory and practice"--Back cover

Macroeconomic, input-output, general equilibrium, trade and exchange rate, and several hybrid models are included. A cross-sectional analysis by the editor compares the structures, linkage mechanisms, methodologies and applications of the vari
