Fundamentals of Effective Program Management: A Process Approach Based on the Global Standard

By Dr Paul Sanghera, PMP

J. Ross Publishing, 2008. First edition. Hardcover. New. 16 x 24 cm. Only a small percentage of projects are run in isolation. The majority of projects are conducted in groups under programs to maximize business and organizational objectives. Due to its proven benefits to organizations of all sizes, program management and the demand for resources on how to do it effectively are growing at a rapid pace. In this new book, best-selling author Paul Sanghera presents cohesive, comprehensive coverage of the fundamentals of program management based on the global standard for program management issued by Project Management Institute (PMI), and in accordance with generally recognized best practices. This unique guide clearly places program management in the context of project management and project portfolio management and describes processes that can be applied to programs in any field. Because no prior knowledge of program management is assumed, Fundamentals of Effective Program Management is useful for both those new to program/project management, and to experienced practitioners whose daily tasks and responsibilities extend beyond project management and have a direct impact on accomplishing organizational objectives. Every concept, simple and complex, is defined and explained when it appears the first time. There is no hopping from topic to topic and no technical jargon without explanation. Dr. Sanghera skillfully presents all of the material in a logical learning sequence with each chapter building upon previous chapters and each section on previous sections. Discussion exercises are presented at the end of each chapter to test newly acquired knowledge and to help apply this knowledge to practical situations. This insightful guide to mastering the Fundamentals of Effective Program Management is ideal for self-learning, training or academic instruction. Printed Pages: 376. NA

Sakhalin Island

By Anton Chekhov,Brian Reeve

Bloomsbury Publishing, 2019. First edition. Softcover. New. 13 x 20 cm. In 1890, the thirty-year-old Chekhov, already knowing that he was ill with tuberculosis, undertook an arduous eleven-week journey from Moscow across Siberia to the penal colony on the island of Sakhalin. Now collected here in one volume are the fully annotated translations of his impressions of his trip through Siberia and the account of his three-month sojourn on Sakhalin Island, together with his notes and extracts from his letters to relatives and associates. Highly valuable both as a detailed depiction of the Tsarist system of penal servitude and as an insight into Chekhov`s motivations and objectives for visiting the colony and writing the exposé, Sakhalin Island is a haunting work which had a huge impact both on Chekhov`s career and on Russian society.

Class, Politics, and Agrarian Policies in Post-liberalisation India

By Sejuti Das Gupta

Cambridge University Press, 2018. Hardcover. New. Has there been a shift in agrarian policies in India since liberalisation? What has been the impact of these policies on new class formation and consolidation of existing ones? Did proprietary classes with close relations to the state influence the formulation of these policies? Do class–state relations have to be uniform across nations under globalisation? Studying post-liberalisation India, this book answers these questions by scrutinizing the tenets of agrarian policies of three Indian states – Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, and Karnataka. In doing so, it analyses the political economy of agricultural policy and the class–state relations operating in the country. Printed Pages: 0. NA

Simulating War: Studying Conflict through Simulation Games

By Philip Sabin

Bloomsbury Publishing India, 2019. First edition. Softcover. New. 15 x 23 cm. Over the past fifty years, many thousands of conflict simulations have been published that bring the dynamics of past and possible future wars to life. In this book, Philip Sabin explores the theory and practice of conflict simulation as a topic in its own right, based on his thirty years of experience in designing wargames and using them in teaching. Simulating War sets conflict simulation in its proper context alongside more familiar techniques such as game theory and operational analysis. It explains in detail the analytical and modelling techniques involved, and it teaches you how to design your own simulations of conflicts of your choice. The book provides eight simple illustrative simulations of specific historical conflicts, complete with rules, maps and counters. Simulating War is essential reading for all recreational or professional simulation gamers, and for anyone who is interested in modelling war, from teachers and students to military officers. Table of contents: Introduction Part I: Theory 1. Modelling War 2. Accuracy vs Simplicity 3. Educational Utility 4. Simulation Research Part II: Mechanics 5. Designing the Components 6.

FROM DARK DUNGEONS TO DAZZLING DAWN

By ABRAHAM VELLAMTHADATHIL

Shipra Publication, 2016. Paperback. New. “? the poignant yet fascinating story of oppression uncivilized, inhuman and unchristian treatment—the sordid and melodramatic vindictive torture Fr. Abraham had to face—an unusual story like a page from the Arabian Nights—must be read by every Christian priest and of course by every layman”. Padmabhushan Dr.M. V. Pylee “—author’s memoirs depicting in brilliant colours the story of his barbarous victimization by oppressive and power-addict hierarchs, and of his triumph as glorious victor—an excellent crime-thriller exposing the filthy interiors of the pyramidal ecclesiastical structures—capable of captivating the readers and keeping them spell-bound till the end—the truth-missiles launched by the author will hit at the intended targets, namely the bunkers of spiritual terrorists and religious tyrants—”. Rev. Dr. James Gurudas, CMI The Cross of Jesus’ Discipleship – the vertical relationship with the Moral Imperative: Truth, Justice and Love and the horizontal relationship with the universal human fraternity – now stands distorted into a symbol of suffering and buried under weird dogma-ridden ritualistic stuff, the author thought. “Who are you to think when we are here?” was the ominous threat of the ‘jure divino’ infallible church hierarchy. There started the author’s struggle. Printed Pages: 352. NA

Confucius: Bloomsbury Library of Educational Thought

By Charleneten

Bloomsbury Publishing India, 2019. First edition. Softcover. New. 16 x 24 cm. Charlene Tan`s text offers a coherent account of Confucius` educational thought and its implications for the modern world. Arguing that Confucius is more than an ancient master who emphasised tradition, rote-learning and teacher-centredness, Tan portrays Confucius as a progressive educator who challenged the social norms of his time and transformed the nature of teaching and learning in China and beyond. Through a textual study of the Analects, this text provides a critical exposition of Confucius` work, particularly with respect to his interpretations of human beings` mission in life, potentials, relationships with one another, and educational process. Further highlighting the contemporary relevance of Confucius` work, the author offers a Confucian framework for 21st century education – one that harmonises modern knowledge and skills with universal values on shared humanity and loving others. Series Editor`s Preface Foreword Acknowledgements Introduction Part I: Intellectual Biography 1. Confucius` Life, Personality and Influence Part II: Critical Exposition of Confucius` Work 2.

Web As Corpus: Theory and Practice

By Maristella Gatto

Bloomsbury Publishing India, 2019. First edition. Softcover. New. 16 x 24 cm. Is the internet a suitable linguistic corpus? How can we use it in corpus techniques? What are the special properties that we need to be aware of? This book answers those questions. The Web is an exponentially increasing source of language and corpus linguistics data. From gigantic static information resources to user-generated Web 2.0 content, the breadth and depth of information available is breathtaking – and bewildering. This book explores the theory and practice of the “web as corpus”. It looks at the most common tools and methods used and features a plethora of examples based on the author`s own teaching experience. This book also bridges the gap between studies in computational linguistics, which emphasize technical aspects, and studies in corpus linguistics, which focus on the implications for language theory and use. Table of contents: Introduction 1. Corpus, Concordance, collocation: Basic notions 2. From Body to Web: An Introduction to the Web as Corpus 3. Challenging Anarchy: Web Search from a Corpus Perspective 4. Beyond Ordinary Search Engines: Concordancing the Web 5.

The Mathematics of Finance: Modeling and Hedging

By Victor Goodman,Joseph Stampfli

Orient BlackSwan, 2012. Paperback. New. This book is ideally suited for an introductory undergraduate course on financial engineering. It explains the basic concepts of financial derivatives, including put and call options, as well as more complex derivatives such as barrier options and options on futures contracts. Both discrete and continuous models of market behavior are developed in this book. In particular, the analysis of option prices developed by Black and Scholes is explained in a self-contained way, using both the probabilistic Brownian motion method and the analytical differential equations method. The book begins with binomial stock price models, moves on to multistage models, then to the Cox-Ross-Rubinstein option pricing process, and then to the Black-Scholes formula. Other topics presented include Zero Coupon Bonds, forward rates, the yield curve, and several bond price models. The book continues with foreign exchange models and the Keynes Interest Rate Parity Formula, and concludes with the study of country risk, a topic not inappropriate for the times. In addition to theoretical results, numerical models are presented in much detail. Each of the eleven chapters includes a variety of exercises. An instructor``s manual for this title is available electronically. Please send email to textbooks@ams.org for more information. Printed Pages: 256. NA

Nietzsche and Political Thought

By Keith Ansell Pearson (Ed.)

Bloomsbury Publishing India, 2019. First edition. Softcover. New. 16 x 24 cm. Nietzsche challenges the tenets of received political wisdom in a number of ways and his thinking contains resources for revitalising political thinking. Nietzsche and Political Thought offers fresh insights into Nietzsche`s relevance for contemporary political thought in light of recent advances in research in the field and key topics in contemporary theorising about politics. An international team of leading scholars provide vital new perspectives on both core and novel topics including justice, democratic theory, biopolitics, the multitude, political psychology, and the Enlightenment. In spite of the controversies, what becomes clear is that Nietzsche is vital for political thought and a more sensitive and nuanced approach than conventional understandings allow is required. Nietzsche continues to have a lively presence in contemporary philosophy and this book reawakens interest in the political dimension of his thinking.
