LEAD TITLES The New Disruption Complexities and Opportunities from the New East Ben Simpfendorfer is Founder Managing Director of Silk Road Associates, a strategy consultancy and economic advisory based in Hong Kong with offices in Bangkok and Melbourne. Ben leads the firm's consulting work, assisting multinationals and midsized firms with their regional business trategies. Ben was the former Chief China Economist for RBS and Senior China Economist for JPMorgan where he advised some of the world's largest financial institutions and multinationals. He is a member of CNN's Globex20, writes a regular column for FT.com's beyondbrics and is the bestselling author of The New Silk Road (Palgrave, 2008). The rise of the East is undisputed. China's emerging economy, India's flourishing film industry and Turkey's growing political influence are just a few of the powerfully disruptive forces that have resulted from the East's resurgence, and the clash of these forces with the status quo has created unexpected economic, political, and social outcomes. Taking the reader on a tour of the fast changing East, this book provides simple business strategies for dealing with the world's growing complexity now that the East has secured its role as a powerful player on the world stage. In The New Disruption, bestselling author Simpfendorfer leads the new commentary on emerging markets to take it beyond simple binary or straight-line outcomes, arguing that the business world should respond to the East's rise by embracing complexity and planning for the unexpected. $34.95 Hb, ISBN 9781137370051 Publish March 2014, 200 pages Palgrave Macmillan NZRRP$44.95
The Zero Marginal Cost Society The New Social Forces That Are Eclipsing Capitalism and Socialism Jeremy Rifkin is president of the Foundation on Economic Trends and the author of eighteen bestselling books, including The Hydrogen Economy and The End of Work. The National Journal named Rifkin as one of 150 people in the U.S. that have the most influence in shaping federal government policy. The Zero Marginal Cost Society, Jeremy Rifkin's follow-up to the bestselling The Third Industrial Revolution, explores the deep economic, philosophical, psychological, and political changes in human behaviour brought on by a world where billions of human beings are engaged in relentless communication and collaboration in lateral networks in real time. Today, there are a plethora of new collaborative ventures across virtually every field of human endeavour. Collaborative research, collaborative consumption, and collaborative governance are just a few of the many areas where human beings are discovering new and better ways to live in an interconnected world. Rifkin examines how this shift is making the core values and institutions upon which we've based our lives for so long - including private property, representative democracy, and national boundaries obsolete, and turns our attention to the new values and institutions that will propel the next great economic era. $39.95 Hb, ISBN 9781137278463 Publish March 2014, 304 pages Palgrave Macmillan NZRRP$49.95 From the book: “In order to fully appreciate the immense economic, social, political, and psychological changes that will likely come with the transition from capitalism to collaboratism, it is helpful to place this turning point in the human journey within the context of the equally disruptive changes that accompanied the shift from the feudal to the market economy in the late medieval era and, again, from the market economy to the capitalist economy in the modern era. Understanding, in each instance, how the changeover to a new communication/ energy matrix triggered a transformation into a new economic paradigm, fundamentally altering the worldview of much of human society.” Quantity

HISTORY & PHILOSOPHY Defending the City of God A Medieval Queen, the First Crusades, and the Quest for Peace in Jerusalem Sharan Newman is a medieval historian and award-winning author of nonfiction and fiction. Newman was featured in a National Geographic documentary and a TLC documentary about the reality behind the Da Vinci Code, and she has spoken on medieval topics at the Smithsonian, The Ohio State, Vassar College, UC Santa Clara, York University and many other places in North America and Europe, as well as delivering papers at academic conferences. Jerusalem sits at the crossroads of three continents and has been continuously invaded for millenia. Yet, in the middle of one of the region's most violent eras, the crusades, an amazing multicultural world was forming. Templar knights, Muslim peasants, Turkish caliphss, Jewish merchants, and the native Christians along with the children of the first crusaders, blended cultures while struggling to survive in a land constantly at war. Defending the City of God explores this fascinating and forgotten world, and how a group of sisters, daughters of the King of Jerusalem, held together the fragile treaties, understandings, and marriages that allowed for relative peace among the many different factions. As the crusaders fought to maintain their conquests, these relationships quickly unraveled, and the religious and cultural diversity was lost as hardline factions took over. Weaving together the political intrigues and dynastic battles that transformed the Near East with an evocative portrait of medieval Jerusalem, this is an astonishing look at a forgotten side of the first Crusades. $42.00 Hb, ISBN 9781137278654 Publish March 2014, 272 pages Palgrave Macmillan NZRRP$53.00

The Rebellion of Absalom
What is Islamic Philosophy?
Keith Bodner, Crandall University, UK.
Roy Jackson is Course Leader in Religion, Philosophy and Ethics at the University of Gloucestershire, UK. He has many years' experience of lecturing in Philosophy and Religion at a number of universities. His books include Fifty Key Figures in Islam (2006), Nietzsche and Islam (2007), Mawlana Mawdudi and Political Islam (2010), and The God of Philosophy (2011).
With extraordinary range and literary energy, the story of Absalom's rebellion in Samuel ranks as the most elaborate and extensively narrated internal political event in the Hebrew Bible, complete with a host of scandalous and sordid events: illicit sex, murder, cover-up, petty crime, to name a few. For many readers approaching the historical books of the Bible, however, texts often fail to address the vitality of this most turbulent period of King David's career. Bodner addresses this shortcoming with his book, a lively analysis of the early monarchy of Israel, written by a recognized commentator of the Bible's historical books. Concise and insightful, each chapter incrementally focuses on the stages of David's rise to power and Absalom's early life and rebellion.

$57.00 Pb ISBN 9781447901440 Publish March 2014 160 pages Routledge NZRRP$72.00
In this succinct and comprehensive study, Swain contests that: in the years between 1903 and 1917, it was the ideas of Trotsky, rather than Lenin, which shaped the nascent Bolshevik Party and prepared it for the overthrow of the Tsar. During the autumn of 1917 workers supported Trotsky's idea of an insurrection carried out by the soviet, rather than Lenin's demand for a party orchestrated coup d'etat. During the Russian Civil War, Trotsky persuaded a sceptical Lenin that the only way to victory was through the employment of officers trained in the Tsar's army. As well as examining Trotsky's critique of Stalin's Russia in the 1930s, this seminar reader probes deeper to explore the ideas which drove Trotsky forward during his years of influence over Russia's revolutionary politics, exploring such key concepts as how to construct a revolutionary party, how to stage a successful insurrection, how to fight a revolutionary war, and how to build a socialist state.

Border Insecurity examines all the aspects of the challenge - and thriving industry - of trying to keep terrorists, drug smugglers, and illegal immigrants from entering the United States across our land borders. It looks at on-the-ground issues and controversies like illegal immigration and drug smuggling, and the potential terrorists and drug cartels to work together. It also delves into the debate over the existence of border violence spillover and how the debate itself is part of why government has failed to improve information sharing and establish a clear and comprehensive border security strategy. Pragmatic and hard-hitting, this is a timely and important look at why border security needs to become - and remain a national priority. Quantity

One of the greatest unanswered questions after the massive and violent changes that hit the Greater Middle East in 2011, known to some as the 'Arab Spring', is how the West failed to predict both cataclysmic seasons in world affairs and to meet their challenges. The so-called spring didn't last long, quickly unraveling into a collection of civil wars, civil unrest, and successions. Phares argues that Washington is too hesitant to take action when necessary, that US policy is highly disoriented on counter terrorism efforts and that the effects of these errors have already proven costly. Phares will foretell a major demise in US and Western policies in the Middle East, unless a deep change in strategies and policies are made in Washington and Brussels.

Why is India's rise on the world stage so controversial? How can a state that is losing authority to its regions at the same time grow in international importance? Exploring an apparent paradox, Maya Chadda shows how culture, politics, wealth, and policy have combined to forge a distinctive Indian path to power, both nationally and in the international arena.

Lucy Birmingham and David McNeill, Sophia University, Japan.
Andrea Jung, the glamorous former head of Avon, was arguably the world's most charismatic and effective CEO. She seemed incapable of making a wrong move, until, amid declining sales, an investigation by the SEC, and a brand in crisis she stepped down in late 2012. In Beauty Queen, former Avon VP Deborah Himsel uses Jung's story as a case study for two timeless leadership questons: What makes great leaders great? And what makes them fail? She explores both Jung's early years of success as well as the combination of missteps that led to her downfall. Through interviews with other CEOs, Avon executives past and present, and leadership experts, she explores the unique challenges Jung faced as a female Fortune 500 CEO; the thin line between pride and hubris; and the danger of the so-called 'halo effect' in our high-stakes times.

In March of 2011, a 9.0 earthquack struck off the northeastern coast of Japan, unleashing a tsunami onto the densely populated coast. Blending history, science, and gripping storytelling, Strong in the Rain vividly explores the country beyond the headlines, as well as the personal and national stories behind the earthquake. Following the narratives of six individuals, including a worker in the Fukushima nucllear plant who returned to work during the meltdown and the mayor of a coastal town who stayed round the clock on the job without knowing the fate of his family, it offers a glimpse of the surprising ways the Japanese people stood strong in the face of disaster.

Jonathan M. Katz.
This book is about the communication strategies of coalition protest movements and the way in which they transform a mainstream unaccustomed to fractured, fractious articulations of dissent. Coalitions are frequently dismissed in mainstream politics and the media for not communicating 'unified positions'. But it is in the nature of these modern protest movements that they represent very different protest traditions. Articulating Dissent investigates the ways in which this diversity, so inherent in coalition protest, effects the movements of ideas from the political margins to the mainstream. In doing so Pollyanna Ruiz offers an insightful and original analysis of protst coalition as a developing political genre.

On January 12, 2010, the deadliest earthquake in the history of the Western Hemisphere struck the nation least prepared to handle it. The Big Truck That Went By presents a sharp critique of international aid that defies today's conventional wisdom; that the way wealthy countries give aid makes poor countries seem irredeemably hopeless, while trapping millions in cycles of privation and catastrophe. Katz follows the money to uncover startling truths about how good intentions go wrong, and what can be done to make aid "smarter." With coverage of Bill Clinton, who came to help lead the reconstruction; movie-star aid worker Sean Penn; Wyclef Jean; Haiti's leaders and people alike, Katz weaves a complex, darkly funny, and unexpected portrait of one of the world's most fascinating countries.

Ron Scapp, College of Mount Saint Vincent, USA and Brian Seitz, Babson College, USA.
As Michael Carolan clearly shows in this compelling book, cheapness is an illusion. The real cost of low prices is alarmingly high. Environmental pollution may not be costed into goods and services, but is paid for indirectly by people living away from its source or by future generations. The author captures these issues by the concept of "cheaponomics". The key point is that costs and risks are socialised: we all pay for cheapness, but not at the point of purchase. Drawing on a wide range of examples and issues from over-consumption and waste to over-work, unemployment, inequality, and the depersonalising of communities, it is convincingly shown that cheapness can no longer be seen as such a bargain. Instead we need to refocus for a better sense of wellbeing, social justice and a balanced approach to prosperity.

It is clear that the world is in conflict about the status (quo) of capital. Living With Class: Philosophical Reflections on Identity and Material Culture addresses and reflects upon the many different ways in which and through which we find ourselves struggling, surviving, and thriving today. The contributors offer diverse considerations, ‘ethnophilosophies,’ about the force, subtleties, and consequences of the many different ways that capitalism, wealth, and poverty continue to dominate our lives and influence our sense of identity, our understanding of material culture, and our continued maintenance of class status.

Introduction to Nonviolence
The New Urban Question
Andy Merrifield, Murray Edwards College, UK.
Ramin Jahanbegloo, York University, Canada. Non-violent movements, under figures like Gandhi and the Dalai Lama, led to some of the great social changes of the 20th century, and some argue it offers solutions for this century’s problems. This book explores the historical development of non-violence from its roots in diverse religious traditions, to its need for social and political change.

From Haussmann’s attempts to use urban planning to rid 19th-century Paris of workers’ revolution to the contemporary metropolis, including urban disaster-zones such as downtown Detroit, Merrifield reveals how the urban experience has been profoundly shaped by class antagonism and been the battle-ground for conspiracies, revolts and social eruptions. Going beyond the work of earlier urban theorists such as Manuel Castells, Merrifield identifies the new urban question that has emerged and demands urgent attention, as the city becomes a site of active plunder by capital and the setting for new forms of urban struggle, from Occupy to the Indignados.

The Squatters’ Movement in Europe is the first definitive guide to squatting as an alternative to capitalism. It offers a unique insider’s view on the movement - its ideals, actions and ways of life. At a time of growing crisis in Europe of high unemployment, dwindling social housing and declining living standards squatting has become an increasingly popular option. There are contributions from Holland, Spain, the USA, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland and the UK. In an age of austerity and precarity this book contributes with in-depth reflections and practical examples of what has been achieved by this resilient social movement, which holds lessons for policy makers, activists and academics alike.

With sustainability principles threaded throughout and a unique framework to help businesses apeal to consumer desires, this is a branding book with a real difference. Looking through the lens of emotional branding, Simpson argues that brands are uniquely placed to influence consumer behaviour and should therefore airm to create positive change benefitting wider society. This book identifies and examines the 5 primary desires that brands should understand and target in order to create sustainable brand loyalty, healthier societies and more fulfilled customers. Lying outside of basic and human needs such as food, water, shelter, and warmth, the 5 desires are what people seek to gain greater gratification and include self-worth, social life, culture, comfort, and exploration.

How America’s Youth Are Vulnerable to Sex Slavery
How Your Reputation is at Risk from the Brand Pirates and What to Do About It
Holly Austin Smith is an advocate for human trafficking victims who speaks about her own experience nationwide.
Quentin Langley, University of Bedfordshire Business School, UK.
In Walking Prey, advocate and former victim Holly Austin Smith shows how middle class suburban communities are fast becoming the new epicenter of sex trafficking in America. A chance encounter with an older man led her to run away from home, and she soon found herself on the streets of Atlantic City. Her experience led her two decades later to become one of the foremost advocates for trafficking victims. Smith argues that these young women should be treated as victims by law enforcement, but that too often the criminal justice system helps to trap them in a vicious cycle of prostitution. This is a clarion call to take a sharp look at one of the most striking human rights abuses, and one that is going on in our own backyard.

In The Pillars of Finance, author and finance expert Guy Fraser-Sampson challenges the core conventions of modern finance. He asserts that at its core, finance is not the highly scientific, modern discipline that most would claim, but has in fact stood still for the past 50 years. Central to the book are the core pillars of the financial markets - risk, return, and value - pillars of financial practice which are not properly understood by the industry - this has become abundantly clear since the Crash. Instead, the industry is blinded by a quantitative maze, obsessed with mathematical solutions, stochastic models and normal distributions which, although they have a place, should not provide the bedrock of the global marketplace. The author also looks at the industry's overreliance on history. Finally, Fraser-Sampson provides solutions to these issues, which include the need for the industry to undergo a transformation similar to what occured in the Modernist movement in other fields.
Douglas van Praet takes the most brilliant and revolutionary concepts from cognitive science and applies them to how we market, advertise, and consume in the modern digital age. Van Praet simplifies the most complex object in the known universe - the human brain - into seven codified actionable steps to behaviour change. These steps are illustrated using real world examples from advertising, marketing, media and business to consciously unravel what brilliant marketers and ad practitioners have long done intuitively, deconstructing the real story behind some of the greatest marketing and business successes in recent history, such as Nike's 'Just Do It' campaign; 'Got Milk?'; Wendy's 'Where's the Beef?'; and the infamous Volkswagen 'Punchy Buggy' launch as well as their beloved 'The Force' (Mini Darth Vader) Super Bowl commercial.

Michaela Merk was recently awarded the Trainers Excellence Award 2011 and 2012.
Whether you're a politician caught with his pants down, an investment bank accused of accounting improprieties, or even a familyowned restaurant with a lousy Yelp review a crisis doesn't have to be the make-or-break moment of your career. Correctly managed even the most embarrassing 'reply all' can quickly become a thing of the past. In Masters of Disasters Christopher Lehane and Marke Fabiani reveal the magic formula you need to take control when it's your turn to be sucked into the vortex of the modern spin cycle. Covering the ten commandments of damage control, and based on their work for clients like Bill Clinton, Goldman Sachs and Hollywood studios, the authors outline the strategies that can make real time news alerts, Twitter trend lines and viral videos work for you rather against you. $26.00 Pb
In this insightful and practical book, Michaela Merk takes a close look at the strategies that allow managers from retail and brand organizations to win their sales team's hearts, for higher sales performance. Based on new research of sales teams worldwide as well as consumer-brand relationship theories, Merk explores how salespeople's relationships with brands they sell emerge, how they can be characterized and what top management should do to strengthen these in order to use sales force-brand relationship as a strategic tool. Merk shows that these relationships have the power of increasing salespeople's selling motivation as well as commitment to brands and the firm, which are most important criteria for companies' success.

Acquiring contemporary art is about passion and lust, but it is also about branding, the back story that comes with the art, the relationship of money and status, and sometimes, celebrity. Following on from Thompson's critically-acclaimed The $12 Million Stuffed Shark, The Supermodel and the Brillo Box offers a further journey of discover in the economics and psychology that first produced a market crash, and two years later resulted in astronomical prices for the contemporary art market. It describes what happened to that market after the economic implosion following the collapse of Lehman Brothers and offers insights and artworld tales from former executives of dealers and auction houses from New York and London to Abu Dhabi and Beijing. It begins with the story of a wax, trophy-style, nude upper-body sculpture of former supermodel Stephanie Seymour which sold for $2.4 million and recounts the back story to a wooden Brillo Box that sold for $722,500. The Supermodel and the Brillo Box looks at the increasing dominance of Christie's, Sotheby's, and a few uber dealers, the growing importance of the digital art world, and the shrinking role of the mainstream gallery. Thompson opens the door to the world behind the artwork where valuation is king and status is everything. $39.95 Hb, ISBN 9781137279088 Publish March 2014, 256 pages Palgrave Macmillan NZRRP$49.95

Patient safety is an overriding concern in all surgery. In plastic surgery, where many of the procedures are elective, patient safety and avoiding complications becomes a first priority. Well-trained, skilled plastic surgeons can distinguish themselves from less qualified physicians by stressing their training, commitment to excellence, and most of all, their emphasis on patient safety. The full spectrum of patient safety issues is comprehensively discussed with special emphasis on the clinical issues pertinent to plastic surgery. This book is authoritative, timely, practical, and user friendly with advice that will directly affect your practice. It provides essential information that is critical to patient care and covers the topics deemed most important and most troubling to plastic surgeons when surveyed about patient safety. Problems covered are regularly encountered (not rare) events. Solutions, guidelines, protocols, and helpful tips and tricks are scattered throughout.
Subperiosteal, extended sub-SMAS, deep plane, and composite rhytidectomy are all names that have been used to describe the current, more extensive operations for facial rejuvenation. Although these procedures provide superior results, they also involve deeper dissections with the potential for injury to the facial nerves. In order to avoid injury to these nerves, a thorough understanding of their locations is crucial for surgeons performing these operations. This book provides the key to safety in these procedures. Drawing on his expertise in neurology and plastic surgery, Dr. Seckel has created a practical and beautifully illustrated color atlas to alert surgeons to the facial danger zones encountered in these deep plane face lifts.
