'Global Shift just keeps on getting better. There is no other source that gives you the full story on globalization in such a fluent and authoritative way. Not just recommended but essential' - Nigel Thrift, Vice-Chancellor, The University of Warwick 'Impressive in the extent of empirical research, Global Shift successfully captures the historical continuities and basic changes marking the world economy. Peter Dicken's new edition is a vividly written guide to globalizing processes' - James H. Mittelman, Professor, School of International Service, American University, Washington, DC 'With this edition of Global Shift, Professor Dicken confirms his mastery as one of the preeminent authorities in the study of globalization. If you wish to explore beyond "flatland", I can't recommend a better source' - Professor William E. Halal, George Washington University 'A comprehensive, balanced, thorough, interdisciplinary review of one of the critical issues of our time. A must for anyone interested in globalization' - Stephen J. Kobrin, University of Pennsylvania The fifth edition of Global Shift is now completely revised and updated using the latest available sources.

Book Description :

A remarkable change is taking place that will profoundly influence the way we see ourselves and our world. The dominant materialistic, separatist worldview-a perspective that leads individuals to value their own needs over the good of the whole-is giving way to a humanitarian-spiritual orientation. This shift will revolutionize both the way humanity interacts on a global scale and how we live on a day-to-day basis. Global Shift, co-published with the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS), explores the roots of such current planetary crises as climate change, diminishing resources, poverty, and disease, and explains how a new convergence of scientific research and spiritual insight is propelling us toward a more enlightened future. It also presents a call to actions we can implement now, such as voluntary simplicity, nonviolent communication, caring for our bodies, and inclusive global thinking, that can foster personal healing and bring our lives into alignment with the needs of the planet and a conscious universe.

Solvability Theory of Boundary Value Problems and Singular Integral Equations with Shift

Book Description :

The first formulations of linear boundary value problems for analytic functions were due to Riemann (1857). In particular, such problems exhibit as boundary conditions relations among values of the unknown analytic functions which have to be evaluated at different points of the boundary. Singular integral equations with a shift are connected with such boundary value problems in a natural way. Subsequent to Riemann's work, D. Hilbert (1905), C. Haseman (1907) and T. Carleman (1932) also considered problems of this type. About 50 years ago, Soviet mathematicians began a systematic study of these topics. The first works were carried out in Tbilisi by D. Kveselava (1946-1948). Afterwards, this theory developed further in Tbilisi as well as in other Soviet scientific centers (Rostov on Don, Ka zan, Minsk, Odessa, Kishinev, Dushanbe, Novosibirsk, Baku and others). Beginning in the 1960s, some works on this subject appeared systematically in other countries, e. g. , China, Poland, Germany, Vietnam and Korea. In the last decade the geography of investigations on singular integral operators with shift expanded significantly to include such countries as the USA, Portugal and Mexico. It is no longer easy to enumerate the names of the all mathematicians who made contributions to this theory. Beginning in 1957, the author also took part in these developments. Up to the present, more than 600 publications on these topics have appeared.

Book Description :

The wealth of a nation, as Adam Smith understood, depends on the productivity of labor. This fact challenges all actors in today's increasingly competitive, knowledge-intensive world economy. To varying degrees, all are experiencing profound changes in industrial structure and the organization of work. Restructuring on this scale is inevitably a lengthy, painful, and socially disruptive process. How daunting, then, is the challenge facing the postsocialist societies as they attempt to make a double shift - to the market system and to postindustrialism - in one great transformation. They have no road map, nor even a clear destination. Each postsocialist society faces the question not only how to make the transition to a market economy, but what kind of market economy to construct. This question animates the present book, which takes as its focus the labor dimension of the double shift. The Russian and American contributors - all labor experts - examine the peculiar features of the Russian transition and offer thoughtful perspectives on a desirable outcome. They move beyond the simple equation of free markets with efficiency to consider the role of such values as cooperation, participation, perceptions of fairness, and social protection in enhancing both labor productivity and, ultimately, the wealth of a nation.

Book Description :

Economic, technological, and sociopolitical changes have been transforming the cultures of advanced industrial societies in profoundly important ways during the past few decades. This ambitious work examines changes in religious beliefs, in motives for work, in the issues that give rise to political conflict, in the importance people attach to having children and families, and in attitudes toward divorce, abortion, and homosexuality. Ronald Inglehart's earlier book, The Silent Revolution (Princeton, 1977), broke new ground by discovering a major intergenerational shift in the values of the populations of advanced industrial societies. This new volume demonstrates that this value shift is part of a much broader process of cultural change that is gradually transforming political, economic, and social life in these societies. Inglehart uses a massive body of time-series survey data from twenty-six nations, gathered from 1970 through 1988, to analyze the cultural changes that are occurring as younger generations gradually replace older ones in the adult population. These changes have far-reaching political implications, and they seem to be transforming the economic growth rates of societies and the kind of economic development that is pursued.

Many of our greatest business thought leaders proclaim that the most powerful way to transform a business is to transform its culture. In Shift: Indigenous Principles for Corporate Change, author Glenn Geffcken offers a culturally based process and path to help move companies from stagnation to change, from mediocrity to innovation, and from disconnection to harmony. Geffcken details a set of principles that underlie indigenous societies throughout the world—principles that have kept them in a state of grace and harmony with nature for longer than recorded history can account. Shift draws on the wisdom of indigenous cultures, their teachings, and their implications for significant transformation of core behaviors, beliefs, values, and ethics—which, taken as a whole, represent a paradigm shift of magnitude rarely seen in the business world. Through personal stories and experiences from Glenn Geffcken’s twenty-four years in the corporate world, in parallel with an eighteen-year immersion in North American indigenous culture and religion, Shift traces a path of self-discovery and organizational transformation. Geared toward businesspeople and entrepreneurs focused on culture as a force of positive change, it offers a methodology to help you break free and consider a different course.

Book Description :

Little changes can make a big difference. When some of the world’s biggest corporations need to revive their brands, innovate products, and rethink their images, they call Peter Arnell. Now in his fourth decade of branding and marketing for such companies as Samsung, Reebok, DKNY, GNC, and Pepsi, Arnell explains how you can use some of the same strategies that famous brands do, in order to improve your own image, life, and career. Arnell knows this firsthand because he applied many of these same strategies to transform his own life by losing 256 pounds. How did he do it? Arnell created an idea he calls Shift. With Shift, you’ll discover the steps you need to take in order to become the best you. Creating and revitalizing brands happens every day in business. Shift shows how you can make it happen for yourself and your personal brand. Innovative insights such as “go helium” are used by Arnell to explain how he reached his ultimate goal of 150 pounds—you can apply his techniques to reach for your own goals. You will see—through Arnell’s description of how he “went tiger”—how to exercise your own discipline and commitment, without apology, even if that means bucking the norm. And by learning to reach out to your brand audience, you will come to understand the importance of your network of friends, acquaintances, colleagues, and family—your fan club— in keeping you motivated and providing the feedback you need for success. Weaving together personal stories of his own transformation with stories about how he created transformative change for brands such as Reebok and Pepsi, Arnell shares his unique vision on how each of us can rebrand and transform ourselves, both personally and professionally, to achieve the success we desire. PETER ARNELL, founder of Arnell, is one of the foremost branding and design experts in the world. Among the companies he and his team have worked with are DKNY, Samsung, Chanel, Reebok, Mars, Pepsi, Home Depot, GNC, De Tomaso, Fendi, Mikimoto, Special Olympics and Con Edison. He and his family live in Westchester County, New York. From the Hardcover edition.
