There has been no attempt to explain the variation in stock market responses to alliance announcements in an era of industry ferment, to reflect the benefits and costs associated with the evolving structural topologies of firms' alliance networks. This study investigates such effects using data from firms in the UK biotechnology industry in 1986-2000, an era of industry ferment, at the ego-network and the 'whole'-network level. The findings highlight the value of managing a firm's alliance ego-network as a strategic tool that provides network resources but also affects others' perceptions of a firm's resources and growth prospects.

Exploring the suitability of CFSC theory in Nig...

Malaria disease infects 350-500 million people globally, killing over 1 million each year. African countries are the worst hit, accounting for about 90% of the global deaths, with Nigeria representing one quarter of the continent s burden. Pregnant women and Children under the age of five are the most vulnerable group. Over the past few decades, global interest in malaria has increased significantly and one of such is the Roll Back Malaria (RBM) Initiative, a global alliance to fight malaria. The major goal of the RBM is to reduce malaria scourge by half, and one of its four major strategies to realize this goal, is to get 80% of pregnant women and children under five to sleep under Insecticide Treated Net(ITN) daily, by 2013. Several reports indicate that while some African countries have made significant gains, Nigeria is lagging behind. Using the Communication for Social Change(CFSC) theory as the framework for analysis, this study investigated the responses of pregnant women in rural and urban Lagos State, Nigeria, to communication messages on the adoption of ITN, and the extent to which social contexts influenced these responses. Results contradict those of the earlier studies

36,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Between 2012 and 2013, Mali has gone through the most challenging period of its history as a nation-state. From a praised democracy, the country almost collapsed after the onset of a complex set of rebellions that threatened to divide or completely erase it from the map. This book provides a three-dimensional analysis of the conflict drivers as well a deep assessment of the conflict resolution mechanisms that were set up to restore Mali control over its territory. From the outbreak of MNLA insurgent attacks in early 2012, the crafting of AZAWAD,the fluidity of MNLA alliance with ANSAR DINE, MUJAO and AQIM, the coup d'état of Sanogo and downfall of Amani Toumani Touré, the responses of ECOWAS, the 'core countries' (Algeria, Mauritania), the African Union, the role of France to the re-hatting of AFISMA and launch of MINUSMA, all crusty details and facets of the crisis are meticulously scrutinized. This book is a must-have for academics, diplomats and strategists interested the new conflict dynamics in Mali and West Africa in a global era.

PROBLEMATIC ALLIANCES
49,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Alliances can be seen as unstable organisational entities. Estimations of alliance failure rates range up to 60%, often due to problematic situations caused by changing internal or external circumstances. The likelihood of alliance failure increases when partners do not respond to these situations in the desired way. Hence, it has become necessary to develop a useful instrument to measure possible responses to specific problematic situations in alliances. In this work, a circumplex representation of the seven response strategies (exit propensity, opportunism, aggressive voice, creative voice, considerate voice, patience, and neglect) is used in combination with single item measurement to develop and test a new practical measurement tool. Three different tools are tested and compared on their reliability, validity and practicality. The scenario manipulations and analyses used in this work demonstrate that the new tools are valid, reliable and useful.

PACTS: The Coalition for Change offers a case study chronicling the efforts of one urban high school district in Northern California to change its curriculum. It quantifies surveyed responses solicited from parents, administrators, curriculum leaders, teachers, and students in the district. It also assesses their level of agreement on issues relating to mathematics reform. These agents of change constitute the PACTS Coalition. As a group, they generally agree that mathematics is a tough subject and that it should be fun; however, their level of agreement vacillates when the investigation turns to issues such as ability level grouping, the incorporation of diversity, and the question of inclusion. In general, members of the alliance believe that the effect of reform efforts has been deleterious to the overall quality of mathematics education at their school site and in the district. Many respondents cite poor communication, ineffectual leadership, and a lack of direction as chief deterrents to effective mathematics reform; additionally, most agree that cohesion, unity, and morale among the mathematics staff in the district have suffered as a result. Author Bill Collins shows that the varying perspectives of the PACTS Coalition is key to recognizing the complexity of educational issues while revealing the vision needed for lasting education reform.

Cognitive Analytic Therapy of Borderline
214,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Borderline Personality Disorder patients are impulsive, unstable and destructive, hurting themselves and those around them, including those who seek to help them. This has resulted in a widespread reluctance to treat them and a pessimism about treatment. In the experience of the authors this pessimism is unjustified, because for many patients a relatively brief intervention can be effective in cost-benefit terms as well as human terms. The interventions illustrated here have been used to treat outpatients for 15 years. The results indicate that treatments can achieve clinically significant changes in the course of 1624 sessions, in a substantial proportion of patients. While CAT shares some ideas and methods with other approaches, it introduces many new features and is uniquely integrated at both the theoretical and practical level. The early joint reformulation of patients problems serves to contain destructiveness and to create a working alliance. Also, the use of reformulation to teach self-reflection and avoid collusive responses from the therapist, throughout the therapy, represents a powerful new technique. The book offers a critical appraisal of current ideas and practices, contrasting with these the ways in which CAT mobilizes the patients own resources. The authors argue that CAT should have a place in any service seeking to help these difficult patients. From a review of Cognitive Analytic Therapy: Developments in Theory and Practice (Anthony Ryle (Editor), 1995): 'Ryle is surely the most original, productive and interesting writer in psychotherapy in Britain today, and CAT is a remarkable systematizing achievement which deserves to be better known on the other side of theAtlantic This book documenting CATs recent theoretical and practical developments is a must for anyone interested in CAT itself and in integrative approaches, for those interested in brief, psychodynamically informed therapy, or indeed for those interested in developments in p

Ratifying the Republic

Ratifying the Republic explains how the United States Constitution made the transition from a very divisive proposal to a consensually legitimate framework for governing. This story has never been told in its entirety, mainly because the transition seemed so seamless. But the Federalists' proposal had been bitterly opposed, and constitutional legitimation required a major transformation. The story of that transformation is the substance of this book. The progression of constitutional contexts triggered new responses from participants in the ratification debate which led to legitimation. Antifederalists had been loath to scrap the Articles of Confederation because of their conservative approach to the rule of law. After ratification, this same conservative predisposition led them to agree to abide by the newly legalized Constitution and instruct their followers to do the same. Implementation of the Constitution yielded other responses which bolstered the document. For instance, this progression in 'constitutional time' exposed incomplete views within the Federalist camp about how a constitution should be treated in practice. James Madison believed the Constitution fairly clearly distinguished federal powers from those retained by the states; successful constitutionalism dictated preserving that division. In contrast, Alexander Hamilton thought that a constitution that split sovereignty between the states and the nation was inherently unstable. His hope was to salvage the Union by extending national power, a project directly contrary to Madison's more static view. Madison and these Federalists who agreed with him joined with the former Antifederalists to become the Republican party. This alliance held the remaining Federalists to their well-publicized ratification debate argument that the Constitution was a grant of limited, specific powers only. This new alliance had sufficient strength to contemplate taking the reins of government. With majority status a distinct possibility, incentives to replace the new regime were minimized, eclipsed by a state-centric interpretation of the Constitution. The legislative process adopted by Congress was also satisfactory to the opposition, who were sticklers for proper procedures. Finally, the trying and financially unrewarding nature of service in the new government discouraged the best and the brightest from seeking national office, hindering institutional prestige and the growth of national power, developments which pleased those who favored dual sovereignty. Throughout, the author emphasizes the role fear, contingency, and happenstance played in the success and legitimation of the Constitution.
