Parties are a lot of work, and they can be costly. Finding a place to hold your event, getting people to attend, making it run smoothly, setting it up, and tearing it down can require an immense amount of effort. Nonetheless, it's quite a bit of fun to hang out with a group of friends in the organized environment of a party. There's something special about socializing, hanging out, talking, being entertained, eating, drinking, and just having a good time together. Read this book and learn:
This book deals with the economic aspects of changing attitudes in arts and sciences. The effects of the public good character of culture, along with the very long production period and lifetime for its products, are emphasized, since both contribute to the failure of normal market solutions. Embodiment of ideas and the consequences of modern reproduction technology for protection of property rights are closely examined.
The evolution within arts and sciences, which often seems to return to previously scrapped ideals, is illustrated by detailed case studies, in which the importance of changing tastes, rather than progress proper, is emphasized.
The author attempts an understanding for this using Darwinian evolution in combination with modern mathematical complexity theory, expressed in terms accessible to the general reader.
The second edition is extended and updated especially as regards the illustration material.
Problems with costs, quality, productivity and attendance, primarily stem from bad behavioural patterns encouraged within the organization. To prevent and manage these problems, a behavioural approach to managing people is often the most effective.
This dynamic textbook illustrates how behaviour analysis theory can be used to alter how people behave in the workplace. It takes a highly practical look at management strategies, showing how managers can identify, measure and analyze undesirable behaviour. Using real life case study examples to show the implementation of effective change strategies, the authors investigate a range of situations from behavioural self-management, to changing the behaviour of large groups. Topics covered include:
Providing a theoretically grounded yet highly practical perspective, this significant textbook is an essential purchase for all those seeking to understand how to manage people and organizations more effectively.
The Artful Pocket is the first extended study of women's tie-on pockets -specifically female accessories in the shape of bags suspended on a tape tied around the waist, often under, and always independent of, other garments. The book covers the period of their commonplace usage from the late seventeenth century to the late nineteenth century. The book registers the full material range of the object at its heart, from elaborately embellished to humdrum, patched and stained examples. It does this by drawing on pioneering research and documentation of three hundred and fifty surviving pockets in thirty museum collections across the country. Identifying what is unique about its material evidence and object-attentive approach, the book engages extensively with traditional historical and literary sources in order to establish how the object is integrated within social and cultural practices and to map discursive and dynamic relations between the material object and the social world - sources such as fiction or drama where pockets are represented in use but also family papers, shop inventories and court records of criminal cases involving pocket-picking to name but a few. The book combines meticulous attention to the object with the analysis of written but also of visual evidence - such as paintings and satirical prints - to bring the lived experience of girls and women of the past into intimate focus.
