    Globalization, Universities and Issues of Sustainable Human Development

    Edited by Jean L. Pyle, Robert Forrant

The editors begin by outlining the changes associated with the recent wave of globalization, particularly transformations in the relative power of institutions internationally. They analyze the constraints universities face in industrialized and developing countries in promoting sustainable human development. Learn More

    Emerging Issues in International Business Research

    Edited by Masaaki Kotabe, Preet S. Aulakh
    Top scholars in the field of international business (IB) contribute to this comprehensive analysis of the current state-of-the-art in IB research. The focus of the book is to examine the current state of international business research from an issue-oriented approach rather than the functional approaches that have been characteristic in the recent evolution of the field. In evaluating the current state and future research directions in research areas unique to international business, the book is structured in three parts: the macro-environment, interactions between business and institutions, and competition and strategy.

  4. Pollution, Property and Prices

    Pollution, Property and Prices

    J. H. Dales
    In this classic book, originally published in 1968 by University of Toronto Press, John Dales proposed a new policy instrument for tackling pollution problems, namely ‘markets in pollution rights’. Dales was one of the first economists to put forward such a solution, and in subsequent years a system of emissions trading has evolved which is now a centrepiece in international discussions of how to address the problem of global climate change.

    Warren J. Samuels

  8. Globalisation? Internationalisation and Monopoly Capitalism

    Globalisation? Internationalisation and Monopoly Capitalism

    Bob Milward
    This book acts as a welcome foil to current thinking on the concept of globalisation, which tends to be divided into two distinct camps: one which suggests that the neo-liberal model has triumphed and has no realistic alternative, and another which argues that globalisation, in its most extreme form, does not really exist, rather having evolved gradually from the very beginnings of industrialisation.

    Edited by Kartik Roy, Jörn Sideras

    Handbook on the Economics of Discrimination

    Edited by William M. Rodgers III

Despite some gains in our understanding, these remain active areas of debate among researchers, practitioners and policymakers. The specially commissioned papers in this volume, all by distinguished contributors, present the full range of issues related to this complex and challenging problem. Learn More
