Philip Selznick ideals in the world by Martin Krygier ( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Philip Selznick's wide-ranging writings engaged with fundamental questions concerning society, politics, institutions, law, and morals. Never confined by a single discipline or approach, he proved himself a major figure across a range of fields including sociology, organizations and institutions, leadership, political science, sociology of law, political theory, and social philosophy. This volume, the first book-length treatment of Selznick's ideas, discusses Selznick's various intellectual contributions. Reading across Selznick's work, one appreciates the coherence of his fundamental preoccupations--with the social conditions for frustration and the vindication of values and ideas. Exploring Selznick's insights into the nature and quality of institutional, legal, and social life, the book also examines his particular ways of thinking, concerns, values, and sensibility. Martin Krygier brings to light the coherence of Selznick's fundamental preoccupations, allowing readers to fully engage with his unique insights and distinctive moral-intellectual sensibility

An introduction to trading in the financial markets : technology : systems, data and networks by R. Tee Williams ( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Networks, systems, and data join the financial markets into a single interrelated environment that processes millions of transactions in real time. This volume, the third of four, investigates the interconnected nature of financial markets by examining networks, systems, and data in turn.

We learn why the speed and scope of financial automation are growing, and we observe the increasing importance of data in the regulatory process. Contributing to these explanations are visual cues that guide readers through the material. If knowledge comes from information, then this volume reveals much about the core of the finance industry. Explains how technologies and data make the financial markets one of the most automated industries. Describes how each step in the trading process employs technology and generates information. Presents major concepts with graphs and easily understood definitions
Decolonizing native histories : collaboration, knowledge, and language in the Americas by Florencia E Mallon ( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Decolonizing Native Histories is an interdisciplinary collection that grapples with the racial and ethnic politics of knowledge production and indigenous activism in the Americas. It analyzes the relationship of language to power and empowerment, and advocates for collaborations between community members, scholars, and activists that prioritize the rights of Native peoples to decide how their knowledge is used. The contributors--academics and activists, indigenous and nonindigenous, from disciplines including history, anthropology, linguistics, and political science--explore the challenges of decolonization. These wide-ranging case studies consider how language, the law, and the archive have historically served as instruments of colonialism and how they can be creatively transformed in constructing autonomy. The collection highlights points of commonality and solidarity across geographical, cultural, and linguistic boundaries and also reflects deep distinctions between North and South. Decolonizing Native Histories looks at Native histories and narratives in an internationally comparative context, with the hope that international collaboration and understanding of local histories will foster new possibilities for indigenous mobilization and an increasingly decolonized future."--Project Muse
Creating the Nazi marketplace : commerce and consumption in the Third Reich by S. Jonathan Wiesen ( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"When the Nazis came to power in 1933, they promised to build a vibrant consumer society. But they faced a dilemma. They recognized that consolidating support for the regime required providing Germans with the products they desired. At the same time, the Nazis worried about the degrading cultural effects of mass consumption and its association with "Jewish" interests. This book examines how both the state and private companies sought to overcome this predicament. Drawing on a wide range of sources - advertisements, exhibition programs, films, consumer research, and marketing publications - the book traces the ways National Socialists attempted to create their own distinctive world of buying and selling. At the same time, it shows how corporate leaders and everyday Germans navigated what S. Jonathan Wiesen calls "the Nazi marketplace." A groundbreaking work that combines cultural, intellectual, and business history, Creating the Nazi Marketplace offers an innovative interpretation of commerce and ideology in the Third Reich"--Provided by publisher
