*9780071615136* THE VAR IMPLEMENTATION HANDBOOK By Greg N. Gregoriou March 2009 / Hardcover / 624 pages ISBN: 9780071615136 / US$95.00 For investors, risk is about the odds of losing money, and Value at Risk (VaR) is grounded in that common-sense fact. VAR modeling answers, "What is my worst-case scenario?" and "How much could I lose in a really bad month?" However, there has not been an effective guidebook available to help investors and financial managers make their own VaR calculations--until now. The VaR Implementation Handbook is a hands-on road map for professionals who have a solid background in VaR but need the critical strategies, models, and insights to apply their knowledge in the real world. Heralded as "the new science of risk management," VaR has emerged as the dominant methodology used by financial institutions and corporate treasuries worldwide for estimating precisely how much money is at risk each day in the financial markets. The VaR Implementation Handbook picks up where other books on the subject leave off and demonstrates how, with proper implementation, VaR can be a valuable tool for assessing risk in a variety of areas-from equity to structured and operational products. CONTENTS 1. Efficient VaR 2. Corporate VaR 3. Operational Value-at-Risk 4. VaR Performance Criterion (VPC)

With record market volatility and a global economic crisis, decision makers of all types can learn from successful private equity players and other top value builders.

Laffer, along with value-building experts William J. Hass and Shepherd G. Pryor IV, combines the concepts of intrinsic value, macroeconomics, and incentives into a single strategy used by today's top value builders. Examples of major private equity players at Blackstone, KKR, Carlyle, Cerberus, and Madison Dearborne Partners illustrate what to do and what to avoid in specific situations.
Decision makers seeking to take full advantage of the new, interconnected world of business and economics will learn how to make the best decision the first time around, quickly and with conviction--the key to seizing the private equity edge.

Not only were Welch's shoes particularly large ones to fill, but the economy was dallying with recession, China and India were taking their first giant steps into the global economy, and just four days into Immelt's tenure came the biggest game changer of all: 9/11. The hand-wringing, it turned out, was all for nought. During Immelt's first seven years on the job, GE's revenues increased by more than 60%, its profits doubled, and the company solidified its status as the world leader in technological innovation. Written with the full cooperation of Immelt and GE senior executives, Jeff Immelt and the New GE Way tells the amazing story of how Immelt defied the skeptics and successfully reengineered one of the world's oldest and largest global conglomerates to meet the challenges of the 21st century.

*9780071621267* STRATEGIC BUSINESS FORECASTING A Structured Approach to Shaping the Future of Your Business By Dr. Simon Ramo, and Dr. Ronald Sugar March 2009 / Hardcover / 240 pages ISBN: 9780071621267 / US$34.95 At the turn of the century, Western Union passed on the chance to dominate the telephone industry. Later, General Electric concluded that a new invention called television was doomed to fail. And very recently, decision makers at the highest level were taken off-guard when the global economy dropped from under their feet--and took their companies with it. Today, only those business leaders with the power of long-term foresight will seize and hold true competitive advantage. But can managers really predict the future? Yes, to a greater extent than one might expect. Strategic Business Forecasting shows how to identify and quantify possible events that may affect your business. Applying creativity, personal experience, and the lessons of history, you can use such forecasting to develop plans that will help your organization compete. Drs. Simon Ramo and Ronald Sugar, two giants of the aerospace industry, share their Four-Measures Rating system to help you explore the world of possibilities--thoroughly and systematically. The authors provide vivid illustrations of the Four-Measures system at work with real-world examples of both forecasting failures and successes. No one can predict perfectly, and the authors don't promise magic. With the approach described in Strategic Business Forecasting, however, you can ensure your organization is better poised to seize future opportunities, avoid pitfalls, and handle anything the increasingly volatile global economy throws your way.

Smith is a legend in the world of finance. Part adventurer and part economic warrior, this Indiana Jones of the financial world was an advance man for the forces of globalization, having spent more than thirty years traveling through five continents, buying and selling high risk securities in the world's most downtrodden economies. So tenuous was his operation and so covert the transactions, that an overnight fluctuation in a country's currency rate could mean the difference between a spectacular profit or a devastating loss. Today, the trade in emerging market debt is worth more than five billion dollars a day, but it was virtually non-existent when Smith, a one-time collections lawyer, pioneered the business in the late 1970s. Riches Among the Ruins is the extraordinary story of Robert Smith's search to make money doing the riskiest kind of business. We are at his side as he travels through the treacherous and exhilarating world of the debt trader, dodging bullets and roadside bombs in post-Saddam Iraq, and risking his life on the chaotic streets of Nigeria. As he engages in a battle of wills with businessmen in Istanbul, and loses millions overnight in the ruins of the post-Soviet Russian economy, we experience all of the thrill and terror that accompanies making big money in emerging markets. At once adrenaline-fueled and utterly compelling, this is the gripping story of one man's quest for fortune where others fear to tread.

Thomas April 2009 / Softcover / 240 pages ISBN: 9781576755679 / US$24.95 [A Berrett-Koehler Title] Management theory and practice has traditionally focused on elements that Kenneth Thomas calls `extrinsic motivators': pay, benefits, status, bonuses, commissions, pension plans, expense budgets, and the like. While these are powerful motivators, particularly in command/control job situations where workers have little or no say in how the job is managed, by themselves they are no longer enough. In today's organizations, where managers expect workers and teams to self-manage their work, intrinsic rewards are essential. This breakthrough book provides the first comprehensive treatment of intrinsic motivation in the workplace-the psychological rewards workers get directly from the work itself-offering clear advice on how companies can harness its tremendous power to develop a more committed, self-managing workforce. Written in an engaging, accessible style and grounded in solid academic research, the book provides a diagnostic framework for addressing problems of intrinsic motivation and essential ways to build it. Intrinsic Motivation at Work makes a major contribution to the topic of work motivation-one that is based on a keen understanding of the changing requirements of today's workplace and the limitations of other motivational models. The paradigm and practical approaches this path-breaking book provides will help business leaders build motivation at every level of their organizations. CONTENTS Part I: The Need for New Models The Shift from Compliance to Partnership Extrinsic Rewards Are No Longer Enough Getting Beyond Rational/Economic Assumptions Part II: The Nature of the New Work Purposeful Work Self-Management in the Pursuit of Purpose Part III: The Intrinsic Rewards of the New Work The Rewards of Self-Management Building a Sense of Meaningfulness Building a Sense of Choice Building a Sense of Competence Building a Sense of Progress Implications Epilogue: Putting Money in Perspective

SELF-IMPROVEMENT *9781576757567* THE COMPASSIONATE LIFE Second Edition By Marc Ian Barasch April 2009 / Softcover ISBN: 9781576757567 / US$16.95 [A Berrett-Koehler Title] With a keen balance of hope and skepticism, Marc Barasch sets out on a journey to the heart of compassion, discovering its power to change who we are and the society we have become. He describes encounters with empathetic apes, and with Buddhist monks whose brain scans prove the power of compassion practice; with a man who donated a kidney to a stranger and another who forgave his daughter's murderer; with teenage Palestinian and Israeli girls trying to wage peace; even with astronomers trying to send a missive to E.T. that we're not only clever, but kind. With unfailing curiosity, Barasch poses vital questions: What can we learn from exceptionally empathetic people? Can we increase our compassion quotient with practice? How do we open our hearts to those who do us harm? What if the great driving force of our evolution were actually "survival of the kindest?" He comes up with challenging, ultimately inspiring answers. Drawing on science and spirituality, history and popular culture, button-down business and a high sense of fun, he creates a smart, provocative argument that a simple shift in consciousness changes "pretty much everything."

We're all laboring under our own and society's expectations to be perfect in every way-to look younger, to make more money, to be happy all the time. But according to Tal Ben-Shahar, the New York Times bestselling author of Happier, the pursuit of perfect may actually be the number-one internal obstacle to finding happiness. OR DO YOU WANT TO BE HAPPY? Applying cutting-edge research in the field of positive psychology-the scientific principles taught in his wildly popular course at Harvard University-Ben-Shahar takes us off the impossible pursuit of perfection and directs us to the way to happiness, richness, and true fulfillment. He shows us the freedom derived from not trying to do it all right all the time and the real lessons that failure and painful emotions can teach us. YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE PERFECT TO BE PERFECTLY HAPPY! In The Pursuit of Perfect, Tal Ben-Shahar offers an optimal way of thinking about failure and success--and the very way we live. He provides exercises for self reflection, meditations, and "Time-Ins" to help you rediscover what you really want out of life.

*9781601630704* THE PSYCHIC LIFE OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN by Susan B. Martinez March 2009 / Softcover / 192 pages ISBN: 9781601630704 / US$16.99 [A Career Press Title] In dreams, he foresaw his sudden death. He consulted oracles, and at age 22 was told by a seer that he would become President of the United States. Obscurantists and historians have dismissed Abraham Lincoln's psychic involvements which, in his own time, were profound state secrets. But Lincoln's rise to power coincided with the Great Age of Spiritualism and, as a Mystical Unionist, he felt he was controlled by "some other power." Trauma and heartbreak opened the psychic door for this otherworldly President, whose precognitive dreams, evil omens, and trancelike states are carefully documented here in this bold yet poignant chronicle of tragic beginnings, White House seances, and paranormal eruptions of the Civil War era. Aided by the deathbed memoir of his favorite medium, Lincoln's remarkable psychic experiences come to life with communications from beyond, ESP, true and false prophecies, as well as thumbnail sketches of the most influential spiritualists in Lincoln's orbit. Surveying clairvoyant incidents in Lincoln's life from cradle to grave, the book also examines the Emancipation Proclamation and the unseen powers that moved pen to hand for its historic signing into law.

It uses vibrant personal stories and ethnographic examples to connect developments among the Gebusi of Papua New Guinea to key topics in cultural anthropology, including comparative features of subsistence, kinship, politics, religion, gender, ethnicity, nationalism, and modern development. In the early 1980s, the Gebusi conducted ritual dances and spirit seances, practiced alternative sexual customs, and endured high rate of violence. By 1998, most Gebusi had converted to Christianity and were actively engaged in market activity, disco music, sports leagues, and school. In 2008, however, public services and the cash economy had deteriorated, and people relied increasingly on their traditional customs and practices. This second edition of The Gebusi vividly portrays both the traditions and the modern challenges of Gebusi society and culture with updated content throughout and surprising new conclusions based on the author's return to the Gebusi in 2008.

ENHANCING LEARNING, TEACHING, ASSESSMENT AND CURRICULUM IN HIGHER EDUCATION By Roni Bamber, Paul Trowler, Murray Saunders, and Peter Knight (deceased) March 2009 / 224 pages ISBN: 9780335233762 / Hardcover / US$140.00 ISBN: 9780335233755 / Softcover / US$53.95 [An Open University Press Title] Higher education is a particularly complex site for enhancement initiatives. This book offers those involved in change a coherent conceptual overview of enhancement approaches, of the change context, and of the probable interactions between them. The book sets enhancement within a particular type of change dynamic which focuses on social practices. The aim is to base innovation and change on the probabilities of desired outcomes materializing, rather than on the romanticism of policies that underestimate the sheer difficulty of making a difference. Following a theoretical introduction to these ideas, there are case studies (from the UK, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Norway) at the national, institutional, departmental and individual levels, illustrating the argument that enhancement is best achieved when it works with social practices in real institutional and organizational settings. In a final section, the authors link the case examples and theoretical frameworks, inviting readers to consider their own enhancement situations and apply the `frameworks for action' offered in earlier sections of the book. The book doesn't offer quick-fix solutions but aims to support change with practical examples, conceptual tools and reflexive questions for those involved in change at all levels. It is key reading for higher education lecturers, managers, educational developers and policy makers.

*9780335235407* POLICY Third Edition By H K. Colebatch, University of New South Wales, Australia March 2009 / Softcover / 184 pages ISBN: 9780335235407 / US$37.95 [An Open University Press Title] This new edition of a highly successful text provides an even sharper critical analysis than before of the place of policy in the way we are governed. It is a book about policy - not about what governments do (`public policy') or about particular fields of policy (such as `health policy' or `education policy') but about policy as a concept - an idea which makes sense of the way in which we are governed, and which we can use to be more effective participants in this governing. Policy is key reading for the student studying the subject, the public official or community activist engaged in making policy, and the interested member of the public who wants to know where policy comes from, and why it matters.

CINEMA ENTERTAINMENT By Gianluca Sergi, and Alan Lovell April 2009 / 140 pages ISBN: 9780335222520 / Hardcover / US$120.00 ISBN: 9780335222513 / Softcover / US$37.95 [An Open University Press Title] Entertainment is a defining feature of contemporary culture, yet it is often accused of being superficial and even harmful. In this thought-provoking book, the authors challenge this negative view and argue for a reconsideration of the value of entertainment and the effect it has on the world in which we live. Taking Hollywood cinema as its central focus, this exciting book explores the range of debates that the phenomenon of cinema entertainment has aroused. It is packed with examples from modern, popular films throughout, including a whole chapter on the hugely successful film The Dark Knight. The book features interviews with Randy Thom and Walter Murch, filmmakers involved in creating some of the most successful films of recent years. There is an interesting discussion of the work and reputation of renowned filmmakers, Steven Spielberg and Alfred Hitchcock, names which have become synonymous with cinema entertainment. The authors consider what makes a film successful by looking at box office figures as well as detailed description and critique of current debates surrounding what it means to entertain and be entertained. Cinema Entertainment is important reading for film and media students as well as anyone interested in contemporary mass culture.
