Employee participation programs have many faces, many definitions, many forms--and they change all the time. Bar-Haim, taking a historical approach, dissects these plans with readable, lucid scholarship, and makes sense of the various confusing experiences others have had with them. He analyzes the shapes and dimensions these plans take, using a variety of conceptual frames from the social and management sciences; suggests practical guidelines to operationalize them, then adds a number of highly plausible scenarios for what these plans could look like in the near and perhaps distant future. Students, scholars, researchers, and human resource executives will all find this an important, useful source of action-oriented information.
This supplemental volume is divided into parts covering the broad view of international human resources management, HRM issues and practices in Europe and in other important regions, and international HRM and expatriates.
Geomorphology and Society
Author: Michael E Meadows, Jiun-Chuan Lin
This book deals with the relationship between geomorphology and society. This topic has had rather scant treatment in the literature except to some extent under the label “applied geomorphology”. In this text the authors aim to bring together conceptual issues and case studies of how geomorphology influences society and, indeed, how society is in turn influenced by geomorphology. In an age in which the influence of human activities on global environments has become so paramount that it is increasingly common to refer to it geologically as the “anthropocene”, the book aims to reflect on the geomorphological significance of widespread and diverse forms of human impact in a range of environmental settings.
Nuclear-weapon-free zones are a key component of the international nuclear non-proliferation regime. With the Declaration on the Denuclearization of Africa adopted in 1964, African states were among the first to decide on the denuclearization of their region. However, implementation of the declaration was delayed by South Africa's perilous nuclear weapons programme and their policy of apartheid. This book provides comprehensive details of the negotiations that lead to the conclusion of the Treaty of Pelindaba: The African Nuclear-Weapon-Free Zone.

France Under Fire
Author: Nicole Dombrowski Risser
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
A social, military and political history of the French refugee crisis tracing the impact of government responses upon civilian lives.
Crossick and Haupt provide a major overview of the social, economic, cultural and political development of the petite bourgeoisie in modern Europe, a group until now largely neglected by European social historians. Through comparative analysis the authors examine issues such as the centrality of small enterprise to industrial change, the importance of family and locality to the petit-bourgeois world, the search for stability and status and the associated political move to the right. Crossick and Haupt have written an invaluable and authoritative assessment of the emergence of a distinctive petit-bourgeois cultural and political identity. It will be of interest to both undergraduate students and academic historians.

Trump: The Art of the Deal
Author: Donald J. Trump, Tony Schwartz
Publisher: Ballantine Books
President Donald J. Trump lays out his professional and personal worldview in this classic work—a firsthand account of the rise of America’s foremost deal-maker. “I like thinking big. I always have. To me it’s very simple: If you’re going to be thinking anyway, you might as well think big.”—Donald J. Trump Here is Trump in action—how he runs his organization and how he runs his life—as he meets the people he needs to meet, chats with family and friends, clashes with enemies, and challenges conventional thinking. But even a maverick plays by rules, and Trump has formulated time-tested guidelines for success. He isolates the common elements in his greatest accomplishments; he shatters myths; he names names, spells out the zeros, and fully reveals the deal-maker’s art. And throughout, Trump talks—really talks—about how he does it. Trump: The Art of the Deal is an unguarded look at the mind of a brilliant entrepreneur—the ultimate read for anyone interested in the man behind the spotlight. Praise for Trump: The Art of the Deal “Trump makes one believe for a moment in the American dream again.”—The New York Times “Donald Trump is a deal maker. He is a deal maker the way lions are carnivores and water is wet.”—Chicago Tribune “Fascinating . . . wholly absorbing . . . conveys Trump’s larger-than-life demeanor so vibrantly that the reader’s attention is instantly and fully claimed.”—Boston Herald “A chatty, generous, chutzpa-filled autobiography.”—New York Post
Recent years have seen a growing number of activists, scholars, and even policymakers claiming that the global economy is unfair and unjust, particularly to developing countries and the poor within them. But what would a fair or just global economy look like? Economic Justice in an Unfair World seeks to answer that question by presenting a bold and provocative argument that emphasizes economic relations among states. The book provides a market-oriented focus, arguing that a just international economy would be one that is inclusive, participatory, and welfare-enhancing for all states. Rejecting radical redistribution schemes between rich and poor, Ethan Kapstein asserts that a politically feasible approach to international economic justice would emphasize free trade and limited flows of foreign assistance in order to help countries exercise their comparative advantage. Kapstein also addresses justice in labor, migration, and investment, in each case defending an approach that concentrates on nation-states and their unique social compacts. Clearly written for all those with a stake in contemporary debates over poverty reduction and development, the book provides a breakthrough analysis of what the international community can reasonably do to build a global economy that works to the advantage of every nation.
