Industrial Organization: Contemporary Theory and Practice with Economic Applications

This textbook brings modern I/O analysis to the undergraduate level. Consistent with modern analysis, the authors focus explicitly on the nature of strategic interaction and make extensive use of game theoretic tools. At the same time, they never lose sight of the policy motivation behind much IO analysis. Formal analysis is combined with many practical applications, and the presentation does not assume familiarity with calculus, rather it relies on the ability to work through algebraic equations.

A Sweet Beginning

Claire Lambone is a spunky eleven year old who is infatuated with the idea of creating a sanctuary for homeless dogs in repayment for being rescued by one when she was just two years of age. She gains new knowledge and experience as she encounters different scenarios. Whether it's her family's discouragement, a feisty bull dubbed Volcano, a dog-hating chef, a bumbling but kind vet, or a strict lawyer, Clairie lets nothing stop her. Along the way, she rescues a sweet mutt named Thelma who would otherwise be destined to a dreary fate. A bubbly Chihuahua mix, a fiery kitten, a gentle Great Dane, a tiny poodle, and other animals give Clairie encouragement. The local vet's sons, Charlie and Stanley Morrison, provide laughter and friendship. Aided by dreams and friends, old and new, Claire proves that a gracious smile, an open mind, and dogged-determination are enough to succeed in any adventure.

Empire

The photo series "Empire" is a long-term project (2004-2008), comprising portraits of a wide variety of elite troops across Europe, mostly Republican or Royal Guards, who stand out for both their historical and very colorful uniforms and for the draconic protocolary rule common in such units. The work of French photographer Charles Freger is considered groundbreaking in the complex genre of contemporary portraiture. In extensive series he portrays individual members of social groups--be it sports clubs or professional guilds--who demonstrate their affiliation to the specific collective through external signs such as uniforms.

Andre de Dienes: Marilyn

Before there was Marilyn, there was Norma Jeane The photos and secret memoirs of Marilyn Monroe's first photographer and lifelong friend Fashion photographer Andre de Dienes's life was changed forever one day in 1945 when he met a lovely young aspiring model named Norma Jeane Dougherty. He instantly fell in love with her innocence and charm and the two were briefly engaged. They took many adventurous road trips together in those early years, de Dienes shooting Norma Jeane in every possible natural setting in his original, inspired style. He soon built up a huge portfolio of stunning photographs of the smiling brunette which helped to launch her model career and, a few years later, a film career that was to make her a legend. His entire relationship with the star, including many private moments shared only between the two, is detailed in de Dienes's secret memoirs, which were discovered when Monroe fans ravaged his home after his death in 1988. The memoirs tell a beautiful story of love and friendship from the point of view of someone who knew Marilyn intimately; describing the transformation from Norma Jeane to Marilyn Monroe — the evolution of a sensitive, ambitious girl into a deeply troubled megastar — from an inside perspective, they shed light on a little-known side of Marilyn. From their trip to see Norma Jeane's mother in a mental hospital to Marilyn's visit to his home a few days before her death, de Dienes recounts all of the emotional moments they shared. The combination of de Dienes's memoirs and an extensive selection of his Monroe photographs (which numbered in the thousands) makes for an unprecedented, personal exploration into the psychology, history, and iconography of the world's favorite movie star.

Mexicans & Americans: Cracking the Cultural Code

Mexicans & Americans: Cracking the Cultural Code

Whether negotiating a delivery date, launching a local franchise, or renting a car in Mexico City, speaking the language and knowing the rules of business is not enough. In any culture where yes can mean no--or sometimes maybe--even giants like Wal-Mart and IBM can make costly mistakes. Mexicans & Americans gets to the heart of our differences and lays the groundwork for cultural fluency. Here is a humorous and insightful firsthand look at how to succeed in working with Mexicans-on either side of the border. Steeped in the richness of Mexican culture and history, Ned Crouch helps us understand the most critical elements that determine what works and what doesn't when Mexicans and Americans come together in business: our different views of time, of space, and our construction and use of language. He debunks the manana stereotype and offers specific advice on how to cross the cultural divide that separates our views on hierarchy, authority, class, and gender. From Guadalajara to Indianapolis, real business examples and dozens of personal dialogues from waiters and cab drivers to lawyers, engineers, and CEOs demonstrate common Mexican and American mindsets. Ned Crouch draws on a lifetime of experience to show how Mexicans and American gringos can engage each other and survive the experience in fact, be enriched by it
