Description:

The past three or four decades have seen a steep rise in the number of cross-border operations taking place throughout the world, as measured in terms of trade flows (imports-exports), FDI (foreign direct investment), or joint venture initiatives. The scope and depth of today’s international business operations would suggest that cross-border contacts are inevitable for all but a small minority of companies. If we accept this premise, then it surely follows that those companies that wish to operate competitively should be prepared to adapt their operations accordingly.

Description:

In writing this new introduction, the author has remained faithful to the aims of the previous volume that was published in 2008. The new volume has tracked some subsequent developments and reorientations in the subject which reflect social changes. As a result, the content of each chapter has been broadened and expanded. In updating the earlier volume, a decision was made to retain and rework the sections covering founding theory and early research since one of the aims of the book remains to provide a sense of how the subject has developed historically as a mirror of social change. Compared to the previous volume, the author has integrated a range of selective quotations. Also, to assist the reader in following up a broader range of resources, the original list of recommended books has been expanded into a short bibliography and key referencing has been provided.

Description:

Sex, scandal and diamonds history as it's never been told before... In seventeenth century England, everyone is for hire: even the king himself, James I, is a secret pensioner of Spain. James also trades jobs and titles for homosexual favours from ambitious and parasitic Scotsmen who descend on Whitehall, until George Villiers, the future Duke of Buckingham, an irresistibly handsome Englishman, upstages them all to become James's established lover. Buckingham also likes, and perhaps prefers, women. A countess here, a duchess there, even the Spanish prime minister's wife, all serve as appetisers for an unimaginably daring and dangerous main course: Anne of Austria, Queen of France.

Description:

This volume of essays originated from a conference held at the then Maastricht (now Middelburg) Centre for Transatlantic Studies in 2006. MCTS is a consortium of U.S., Mexican, and European institutions that brings together students and faculty in the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences to study issues and developments that both unite and separate countries on either side of the Atlantic. These papers explore the range of shared and sometimes confl icting concerns not just in international relations (although that is an important part of the collection), but also on historical, cultural, and political issues. In doing so, they highlight the variety of different ways in which transatlantic studies can offer insights into experiences that cross simple national and physical boundaries both in the past and present day.

This book follows on from the highly popular ‘Interacting With Statistics’, by looking at the various sources and methods available to social researchers. The book is illustrated with some interesting and informative examples of the various methods, together with a critique on how those methods have been used or illustrated by some researchers. The book also looks as how the role of social research is itself, subject to social trends, over and above the social problems it seeks to address.
