This book is ideal for students of advanced undergraduate modules in HRM, masters programs in HRM, CIPD specialist electives and MBA and DMS students.
Starting from the premise that managing human resources strategically is crucial for long term organizational success this book is essential reading for both future line managers as well as specialist Human Resource Managers.
The authors define ‘human resources’ as the capabilities and potential that people bring to work organizations.
They examine the process of negotiation, argument, conflict and resolution in all human resource exchanges within a range of management issues. Within this process, the authors suggest, organizational managers need to make a series of strategic choices among which a direct or an indirect, evolving human resource strategy is critical.

Principles of Economics

Principles of Economics (Sixth Edition) became a bestseller after its introduction and continues to be the most popular and widely used text in the economics classroom. Instructors found it the perfect complement to their teaching. A text by a superb writer and economist that stressed the most important concepts without overwhelming students with an excess of detail was a formula that was quickly imitated, but has yet to be matched. The sixth edition features a strong revision of content in all thirty-six chapters.
Dozens of new applications emphasize the real-world relevance of economics for today’s students through interesting news articles, realistic case studies, and engaging problems. The premier ancillary package is the most extensive in the industry, using a team of instructors and preparers who have been with the project since the first edition. The text material is again fully integrated into Aplia, the best-selling online homework solution.
“I have tried to put myself in the position of someone seeing economics for the first time. My goal is to emphasize the material that students should–and do–find interesting about the study of the economy.”

“Personality Rights in European Tort Law” ed. by Gert Brüggemeier, Aurelia Colombi Ciacchi, Patrick O’Callaghan

CU Press | 2010 | ISBN: 0521194911 9780521194914 | pages | PDF | 5 MB

This volume provides a comprehensive analysis of civil liability for invasion of personality interests in Europe. This volume aims to detect hidden similarities (the ‘common core’) in the actual legal treatment accorded by different European countries to personal interests which in some of these countries qualify as ‘personality rights’, and also to detect hidden disparities in the ‘law in action’ of countries whose ‘law in the books’ seem to protect one and the same personality interest in the same way.
It is the final product of the collaboration of twenty-seven scholars and includes case studies of fourteen European jurisdictions, as well as an introductory chapter written from a US perspective.
The case studies focus in particular on the legal protection of honour and reputation, privacy, self-determination and image.
