These fishworkers and coastal conflicts were matters of daily information, yet by no means a subject matter of significant learn. a primary of its variety, the current ebook breaks new floor by means of interpreting the trips of those fisherfolk and coastal conflicts in South Asia from numerous overlapping yet exact views: declining sea assets, safeguard and border anxieties, pain of the fisherfolk, their ambiguous identities and transnational routine. The ebook can also be cutting edge by way of technique: it really is fisherfolk-centric because it marginalizes the worries of the nation from the viewpoint of safeguard; it questions the very foundation of protection and argues for a shift in its perspective.

Precision Crystallization: Theory and Practice of by Ingo Leubner

By Ingo Leubner

Despite the truth that crystals make up an envisioned eighty% of chemical and pharmaceutical items, few assets exist that supply sensible tips on attaining precision keep watch over in their measurement and dimension distribution. in line with a version constructed through the writer and his colleagues, Precision Crystallization: thought and perform of Controlling Crystal Size provides scientists and product engineers with the instruments to regulate crystal nucleation, allowing them to eventually regulate crystal measurement and dimension distribution for batch and non-stop crystallizations.

At the innovative of crystallization technology and expertise, this quantity offers info by no means earlier than on hand. Introducing the Balanced Nucleation and Growth (BNG) version, the ebook demonstrates how the result of the nucleation method are quantitatively concerning useful experimental keep an eye on values such as:

  • reaction addition rate

  • crystal solubility

  • temperature

  • residence time (continuous crystallizations)

  • the impact of ripening brokers (crystal supersizing) in the course of nucleation

  • the impression of crystal development restrainers (crystal nanosizing) in the course of nucleation

  • control of renucleation

The writer indicates how the BNG thought predicts formerly unknown phenomena and in addition the way it corrects misguided perceptions of the significance of response quantity at the end result of crystal nucleation. Going above and past classical nucleation theories which count to a wide volume on guesswork, the BNG version offers specific tips to scientists operating in a variety of serious components, resulting in promising implications for study, qc, product improvement, creation techniques, pilot plant operations, and production.

Erfolgsfaktoren deutsch-chinesischer by Nina Fechtner

By Nina Fechtner

China stellt aufgrund seiner Marktgröße und der optimistischen Wachstums-szenarien für die deutsche Automobilindustrie eine verlockende Möglichkeit dar, im Rahmen der Globalisierung neue Märkte zu erschließen und gleichzei-tig qualitativ hochwertige Arbeitsplätze im Inland zu sichern.

Bislang wurden kulturell bedingte Konfliktpotenziale bei deutsch-chinesischen Kooperationen häufig unterschätzt sowie die lokalen Rahmenbedingungen nicht ausreichend interpretiert. Dies führt nicht selten zum Scheitern von Kooperati-onen, so dass die Notwendigkeit einer Erfolgsfaktorenanalyse in deutsch-chinesischen Joint Ventures offensichtlich wird.

Dieses Buch leistet mit Bezug zur Automobilindustrie einen Beitrag zur Klä-rung folgender Fragen: Welche Entwicklungen sind im chinesischen Automo-bilmarkt zu erwarten? Wie stellt sich das Wettbewerbsumfeld in China dar? Worin liegen die Vor- und Nachteile verschiedener Kooperationsformen in Chi-na? Sichern Investitionen in China langfristig qualitativ hochwertige Arbeitsplätze in Deutschland? Welche Anreize werden ausländischen Investoren gebo-ten? Welche kulturellen Unterschiede können zum Scheitern eines Joint Ven-tures beitragen? Wie lautet die optimale Markteintrittsstrategie deutscher Un-ternehmen?

Die Stadt, das Geld und der Markt: Immobilienspekulation in by Karl Christian Führer

By Karl Christian Führer

Die aktuelle Debatte über stark steigende Grundstückspreise und Mieten findet in dieser Untersuchung ihr historisches Fundament: Das Buch zeigt, wie intensiv in der Bundesrepublik bereits nach 1960 über das gleiche challenge gestritten wurde. Als Schuldige galten profitgierige "Spekulanten", denen unmoralische Geschäftsmethoden vorgeworfen wurden. Anhand zahlreicher Fallbeispiele - aus Frankfurt am major, München, Hamburg, Köln und West-Berlin - untersucht Karl Christian Führer sowohl das konkrete Geschehen auf den Märkten für Grundstücke und Wohnraum als auch die zahlreichen Proteste gegen die "Spekulation" mit Immobilien, etwa durch Hausbesetzungen, bis 1985. Er verzichtet dabei auf vorschnelle Urteile und analysiert die Prozesse konsequent im Kontext der bundesdeutschen Gesellschafts- und Wirtschaftsgeschichte. Ein zentral wichtiger Aspekt der jüngeren Vergangenheit wird damit auf cutting edge Weise differenziert dargestellt, denn Grundstücke und Wohnungen sind wohl das Wirtschaftsgut, an dem sich die soziale und kulturelle measurement ökonomischen Handelns besonders eindringlich nachweisen lässt. Der moralisierende Begriff der "Spekulation" hilft wenig, wenn guy Veränderungen auf diesem Markt verstehen will.
