  • There is beginning to be a considerable body of resources on how to manage the professional practice that goes beyond the homogenous texts on practice management that rather imply that they are all the same and that there is one route to success. Two early contributions, which broke the mould, are undoubtedly Donald Sch€on’s 1983 book, The Reflective Practitioner, and David Maister’s work, especially his 1993 book, Managing the Professional Service Firm.

  • This essay reflects upon the relationship between the current theory of financial intermediation and real-world practice. Our critical analysis of this theory leads to several building blocks of a new theory of financial intermediation. Current financial intermediation theory builds on the notion that intermediaries serve to reduce transaction costs and informational asymmetries. As developments in information technology, deregulation, deepening of financial markets, etc.

  • Accept the idea that the management function is getting things done through others. Accept the idea that you need them more than they need you. Recognize that the reward and punishments you get as a manger are not based on what you do, but on what your employees do; your employees are your score card. No matter what your style or skills or knowledge might be, their success or failure reflects upon you. If all of the preceding are true, then you will recognize that the only reason for being there as a manger is for you to do everything possible...

  • It is often lamented that academics, activists and practitioners engaged in corporate accountability and improving labour standards do not jointly reflect upon the subject of their work enough. Academics talk to practitioners when they want information and practitioners don’t often have the time to step back and reflect upon the efficacy of their strategies, except in planning meetings. This book arose out of a workshop held in December 2007 which aimed at creating a new space for reflection and collaboration.

  • A number of developments have inadvertently exposed the extent to which the accountancy profession had become a major industry and, thus, indirectly invited critical reflection upon the relevance and adequacy of its regulation. Consideration of the three episodes allows us to explore how accountants have responded to the challenge of change and, more specifically, how they have sought to address and neutralise the threat to the image of themselves (and associated material benefits) as responsible, independent professionals.

  • Peter Singer made animal rights an international concern in 1975 when he published Animal Liberation, an instant classic depicting the shocking and widespread abuse of animals. Thirty years later, Singer reflects upon changes and new challenges by bringing together specially commissioned essays by philosophers and activists, chronicling current thoughts on animal suffering, reassessing the question of personhood, and highlighting tales of effective advocacy.

  • What Others are Saying about African American Core Values: A Guide for Everyone "In what has obviously been a labor of love, Richard Rosenfield compiles a useful compendium of folk wisdom which, while coming out of the African American community, is of profound relevance to all Americans. Reaching across the generations and spanning the range from academic to popular discourses, Rosenfield reproduces here one nugget of insight after the other.

  • At the foundations of the series of reflections offered in this volume are my Commentaries on the Constitution of 1787 and on its Amendments published by the Johns Hopkins University Press in 1989 and 1995. I observed, at the outset of those Commentaries, “I was surprised to discover, upon preparing [them] for publication, that there evidently had not been, since the Ratification Campaign of 1787–1788, any other booklength, section-by-section commentary upon the United States Constitution proceeding primarily from the original text itself....

  • I show that, just as investment bankers are key drivers of financial markets, shocks in financial markets have important and lasting effects on the careers of investment bankers. Specifically, using data from a 1996 and 1998 survey of several thousand Stanford MBAs, I find that stock market conditions while MBA students are in school have a large effect on whether they go directly into investment banking upon graduation. This effect of themarkets on initialMBA placement turns out to be a lasting determinant of career choice and earnings....

  • His Majesty, Somdetch P'hra Paramendr Maha Mongkut, the Supreme King of Siam, having sent to Singapore for an English lady to undertake the education of his children, my friends pointed to me. At first it was with much reluctance that I consented to entertain the project; but, strange as it may seem, the more I reflected upon it the more feasible it appeared, until at length I began to look forward, even with a glow of enthusiasm, toward the new and untried field I was about to enter.

  • In an article written in the second volume of the American Journal of International Law in 1908, Lassa Oppenheim was to reflect upon the various tasks that he believed needed to be undertaken in the development of the ‘science of interna- tional law’, 1 foremost amongst which was the ‘exposition of existing recognized rules of international law’. 2 He was to maintain, however, that in order to satisfac- torily fulfil that task, scholars necessarily had to have ‘a knowledge of the history of the rules concerned’. 3 But on this score there was much to be done:...

  • Organisations develop out of the need to co-ordinate work, but this can be achieved in different ways. In this chapter we identify the different types of organisation (Section 1). There are various influences upon organisational structure (Section 2). Most firms have some sort of organisation hierarchy reflecting the levels of strategy-making (Section 3). We can see the strategic apex (eg Board of Directors) at the top, through ranks of middle managers to the operating core where the work is done....

  • Wireless and Mobile Internet have changed the way people and businesses operate. Communication from any Internet access point, including wireless networks such as UMTS, GPRS or WLAN has enabled organizations to have a mobile workforce. However, networked applications such as web, email, streaming multimedia etc. rely upon the ability of timely data delivery. The achievable throughput is a quality measure for the very task of a communication system, which is to transport data in time. Throughput is thus one of the most essential enablers for networked applications.

  • Law concerns the relations of individuals with one another as such relations affect the social and economic order. It is both the product of civilization and the means by which civilization is maintained. As such, law reflects the social, economic, political, religious, and moral philosophy of society. The laws of the United States influence the lives of every U.S. citizen. At the same time, the laws of each State influence the lives of its citizens and the lives of many noncitizens as well.

  • The last quarter-century has seen increasing awareness of the interactions between human societies and the natural environment in which they thrive and upon which they depend. This awareness has been heightened by concerns about resource scarcity, environmental degradation, and global environmental issues. The combination of increased awareness of the environment and recognition of the primitive state of much of the nation’s environmental data has led to a widespread desire to supplement U.S. national economic accounts to include natural resources and environmental assets.

  • The representation of drug treatment in America can affect society in several ways, including stigmatization. Elizabeth Hirschman (1992), in her study of cocaine use in films, argues that "motion pictures which focus upon addiction can serve as instructive, semiotically-rich texts for communicating cultural knowledge about addiction" (p. 428). This communication is not simply one-way, though; it exists as a continual feedback loop, with movies "both reflect[ing] and shape[ing] individual and societal values, attitudes, and behavior" (Wedding, 2000, p. 3).
