The Russian Enterprise in Transition - Case Studies (Hardcover): Simon Clarke The Russian Enterprise in Transition - Case Studies (Hardcover)
Simon Clarke
R2,784 Discovery Miles 27 840 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The Russian Enterprise in Transition provides a unique insight into the realities of the restructuring of Russian industrial enterprises in the transition period from the boardroom to the shop floor. An introductory chapter by Simon Clarke, which gives an overview of the industrial enterprise in transition, is followed by four in-depth case study reports of enterprises, covering the period since the beginning of the radical reform. Each report looks at the changing strategy of management at various levels in response to the challenge of transition, at the response of the shop floor and to the more subtle changes in values and social relations within the enterprise over the period of reform. Together the reports cover five enterprises which provide a cross-section of different types of former state enterprises. Two of the enterprises covered were among the pioneers of privatization, two were flagships of the military-industrial sector which had to respond to the collapse of the traditional markets, and the fifth was a passenger transport enterprise which remains in state control. The Russian Enterprise in Transition is the fourth volume in the series Management and Industry in Russia, reporting directly on the results of a unique programme of case study and ethnographic research into the restructuring of social relations in Russian industrial production. Together these case study reports provide a unique insight into industrial life in Russia and are an essential component to the previous volumes in the series, which have focused on substantive thematic analysis.

After slipping through the cracks of modern life and into the amoral underground beyond work-a-day society, George F finds himself at the heart of London's political frontline, where anarchy, alcohol and addiction stalk the streets of a different city to the one you know. From life on the street to behind the barricades, from the occupation of derelict buildings to inevitable evictions and confrontation with law and order, from euphoria to despair, Total Shambles follows the journey of an idealistic writer as he tries to thrive and survive in the contentious world of squatting in London.

Days of Awe - Reimagining Jewishness in Solidarity with Palestinians (Paperback): Atalia Omer Days of Awe - Reimagining Jewishness in Solidarity with Palestinians (Paperback)
Atalia Omer
R774 Discovery Miles 7 740 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

For many Jewish people in the mid-twentieth century, Zionism was an unquestionable tenet of what it meant to be Jewish. Seventy years later, a growing number of American Jews are instead expressing solidarity with Palestinians, questioning old allegiances to Israel. How did that transformation come about? What does it mean for the future of Judaism? In Days of Awe, Atalia Omer examines this shift through interviews with a new generation of Jewish activists, rigorous data analysis, and fieldwork within a progressive synagogue community. She highlights people politically inspired by social justice campaigns including the Black Lives Matter movement and protests against anti-immigration policies. These activists, she shows, discover that their ethical outrage at US policies extends to Israel's treatment of Palestinians. For these American Jews, the Jewish history of dispossession and diaspora compels a search for solidarity with liberation movements. This shift produces innovations within Jewish tradition, including multi-racial and intersectional conceptions of Jewishness and movements to reclaim prophetic Judaism. Charting the rise of such religious innovation, Omer points toward the possible futures of post-Zionist Judaism.

Partha Dasgupta
R557 Discovery Miles 5 570 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

How should we evaluate the ethics of procreation, especially the environmental consequences of reproductive decisions on future generations, in a resource-constrained world? While demographers, moral philosophers, and environmental scientists have separately discussed the implications of population size for sustainability, no one has attempted to synthesize the concerns and values of these approaches. The culmination of a half century of engagement with population ethics, Partha Dasgupta's masterful Time and the Generations blends economics, philosophy, and ecology to offer an original lens on the difficult topic of optimum global population. After offering careful attention to global inequality and the imbalance of power between men and women, Dasgupta provides tentative answers to two fundamental questions: What level of economic activity can our planet support over the long run, and what does the answer say about optimum population numbers? He develops a population ethics that can be used to evaluate our choices and guide our sense of a sustainable global population and living standards. Structured around a central essay from Dasgupta, the book also features a foreword from Robert Solow; correspondence with Kenneth Arrow; incisive commentaries from Joseph Stiglitz, Eric Maskin, and Scott Barrett; an extended response by the author to them; and a joint paper with Aisha Dasgupta on inequalities in reproductive decisions and the idea of reproductive rights. Taken together, Time and the Generations represents a fascinating dialogue between world-renowned economists on a central issue of our time.

Whitney Phillips
R334 R256 Discovery Miles 2 560 Save R78 (23%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Why the troll problem is actually a culture problem: how online trolling fits comfortably within today's media landscape. Internet trolls live to upset as many people as possible, using all the technical and psychological tools at their disposal. They gleefully whip the media into a frenzy over a fake teen drug crisis; they post offensive messages on Facebook memorial pages, traumatizing grief-stricken friends and family; they use unabashedly racist language and images. They take pleasure in ruining a complete stranger's day and find amusement in their victim's anguish. In short, trolling is the obstacle to a kinder, gentler Internet. To quote a famous Internet meme, trolling is why we can't have nice things online. Or at least that's what we have been led to believe. In this provocative book, Whitney Phillips argues that trolling, widely condemned as obscene and deviant, actually fits comfortably within the contemporary media landscape. Trolling may be obscene, but, Phillips argues, it isn't all that deviant. Trolls' actions are born of and fueled by culturally sanctioned impulses-which are just as damaging as the trolls' most disruptive behaviors. Phillips describes, for example, the relationship between trolling and sensationalist corporate media-pointing out that for trolls, exploitation is a leisure activity; for media, it's a business strategy. She shows how trolls, "the grimacing poster children for a socially networked world," align with social media. And she documents how trolls, in addition to parroting media tropes, also offer a grotesque pantomime of dominant cultural tropes, including gendered notions of dominance and success and an ideology of entitlement. We don't just have a trolling problem, Phillips argues; we have a culture problem. This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things isn't only about trolls; it's about a culture in which trolls thrive.
