Just Enough

This book fosters a wide-ranging and nuanced discussion of the concept of 'enough'. Acknowledging the prominence of notions of sufficiency in debates about sustainability, it argues for a more complex, culturally and historically informed understanding of how these might be manifested across a wide array of contexts. Rather than simply adding further case studies of sufficiency in order to prove the efficacy of what might be called 'finite planet economics', the book holds up to the light a crucial 'keyword' within the sustainability discourse, tracing its origins and anatomising its current repertoire of usages. Chapters focus on the sufficiency of food, drink and clothing to track the concept of 'enough' from the Middle Ages to the 21st century. By expanding the historical and cultural scope of sufficiency, this book fills a significant gap in the current market for authors, students and the wider informed audience who want to more deeply understand the changing and developing use of this term.

Communication in organizations has changed drastically since the release of the first edition of this bestselling textbook. This fully revised and updated edition delves into state-of-the-art studies, providing fresh insights into the challenges that organizations face today. Yet this foundational resource remains a cornerstone in the examination of classic research and theory in organization communication. Beginning with an extended analysis û from an organizational communication vantage point û of the Hurricane Katrina disaster, this groundbreaking edition weaves recent and memorable case materials with up-to-date research and theory, creating a meaningful and comprehensive view of organizational communication. The authors take the unique path of describing and evaluating communication in organizations by focusing on three major perspectives for understanding organizations: traditional, interpretive, and critical. Because these perspectives differ in the ways that they study communication and in the assumptions that they make about the nature of organizations, the authors are able to offer diverse insights into communication in organizations. These three perspectives are used to examine communication functions and structure, organizational culture, information technology; cultural control, diversity, and change; new forms of organizing such as lattices and heterarchies, group relations, leader-member relations, power, conflict, and strategic communication; and new millennium thinking about organizations. Packed with current case studies and commentary, Organizational Communication features an impressive range of contemporary global institutions such as General Motors, Triyo Industries of Japan, Enron, Wal-Mart, Ben &BAD:amp; JerryÆs, The Carter CenterÆs Peace Programs, CanadaÆs public health programs, social change programs in rural India, and more.áá Important new topics in this edition include New Communication StructuresáCultural Diversity and EmpowermentáImplications of Information TechnologyáAffirmative Action and Supreme Court CasesáTransformational LeadershipáNew Millennium Trends InstructorÆs Resource CD Availableáá An easy-to-follow instructorÆs manual on CD is available for qualified textbook adopters.

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: Electronic Commerce, once thought of as futuristic buzzwords, is becoming a commonly used term. International newspapers, magazines, and the electronic media mention at least some forecast or news related to this subject on a daily basis. Nevertheless, a look at the growing numbers of consulting companies, that offer a variety of services relating to Electronic Commerce reveals the immense uncertainty companies are experiencing about what exactly Electronic Commerce is, and how they can implement it. While it seems that the importance of this issue in the business environment is widely accepted in the US, a recent study from Andersen Consulting (Andersen, 1998) shows that among European senior executives only 19% regard Electronic Commerce as a serious competitive threat to their business. Furthermore, only 39% are taking steps today to incorporate Electronic Commerce into their current operational strategies. There is a number of factors contributing to the 'wait-and-see' attitude taken by executives and consumers as well. Executives tend to view the rise of Electronic Commerce as an external business environment issue, while consumers are concerned about security issues. These are still common views in the US. In European countries, a cultural problem stemming from a slowly changing and stable business environment adds to that problem. Fear of failing by trying a new approach, in most cases, overshadows the willingness to take new risks. Nevertheless, the uncertainty about the changes implied by Electronic Commerce are far-reaching and can be found in any country. With the increasing importance of the Internet, the business environment, as well as other areas in society, is about to fundamentally change. Old paradigms are no longer working in the evolving new business world, sometimes called digital economy. Electronic Commerce is the keyword that tries to capture the new paradigms which are not even clear yet. The only thing that is reliable and predictable about Electronic Commerce and the new economy, is change. Never before was it more important to be flexible and willing to take risks by trying new approaches. As businesses like to operate in a predictable environment where planning the future is easy, it becomes very difficult to adapt to the pace of change. Not only do businesses need new strategies, they also need to constantly reinvent themselves. Businesses need to realize, that it becomes necessary to accept [...]

Cambridge Dictionary of Psychology
46,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Cambridge Dictionary of Psychology is the first and only dictionary that surveys the broad discipline of psychology from an international, cross-cultural, and interdisciplinary focus. This focus was achieved in several ways. The managing and consulting editorial boards were comprised of world-renowned scholars in psychology from many different countries, not just the United States. They reviewed and edited all of the keyword entries to make them lively and applicable across cultural contexts, incorporating the latest knowledge in contemporary international psychology. Thus entries related to culture, as well as those from all domains of psychology, are written with the broadest possible audience in mind. Also, many keywords central to contemporary psychology were incorporated that are not included in many competitors, including the Oxford and APA dictionaries.

The Culture of Equity in Restoration and Eighte...
53,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Drawing on politics, religion, law, literature, and philosophy, this interdisciplinary study is a sequel to Mark Fortier's bookThe Culture of Equity in Early Modern England (Ashgate, 2006). The earlier volume traced the meanings and usage of equity in broad cultural terms (including but not limited to law) to position equity as a keyword of valuation, persuasion, and understanding; the present volume carries that work through the Restoration and eighteenth century in Britain and America. Fortier argues that equity continued to be a keyword, used and contested in many of the major social and political events of the period. Further, he argues that equity needs to be seen in this period largely outside the Aristotelian parameters that have generally been assumed in scholarship on equity.

Renaissance Keywords
45,90 CHF *

Certain words played a crucial role in the making of the European Renaissance, and still recur today in our shifting understanding of it. Discretion and grace, to take two examples studied here, express how individuals thought about themselves, each other and their experience of the world, yet they are as hard to define as they are ever-present in Renaissance discourse. In this collection of essays, scholars from across the Humanities offer new interpretations of these and other 'keywords', to adopt Raymond Williams's term, and investigate the vocabulary that not only accompanied, but also produced, the cultural transformations that made the Renaissance so distinctive. A keywords approach to Renaissance Europe provides a rich contextual framework for the exploration of its central ideas. It also highlights the need for fresh thinking on current histories of the age. Seven Renaissance Keywords engages with the ongoing debate about the term 'Renaissance' itself, perhaps more our keyword than theirs, and seeks alternative ways to understand a culture and society which produced conceptions of the self as much as it did art and science. The result is an exploration at the cutting edge of contemporary research. Ita Mac Carthy is Lecturer in Italian Studies at the University of Birmingham.
