Brand Breakout How Emerging Market Brands Will Go Global Nirmalya Kumar, Professor of Marketing and Co-Director of Aditya Birla India Centre, London Business School (UK). He is one of the worlds leading thinkers on strategy and marketing; having also taught at Harvard Business School IMD and Northwestern University. His research has been widely published in journals such as Harvard Business Review and Journal of Marketing Research and Jan-Benedict E.M Steenkamp, C. Knox Massey Distinguished Professor of Marketing and Marketing, Area Chair, Kenan-Flagler Business School, University of North Carolina (USA). He also is Executive Director of AiMark, a global institute, bringing together top academics and leading global companies. Ask a person on any street in the West to quickly name a brand from emerging markets and you will draw a blank. A study of consumers in France, Germany, and the UK revealed how low the spontaneous recall of Chinese brands is. Emerging market companies are painfully aware of this. Many leading companies from emerging markets feel that their country of origin's image handicaps them and presents an obstacle when selling their products and services to western consumers. In Brand Breakout, marketing experts Dr. Kumar and Jan Steenkamp examine how companies, from what are now considered emerging markets, will successfully reach, and in some cases are already reaching, the developed world as consumer brands. The authors outline eight strategies that emerging market brands can pursue to become truly global consumer brands. While some emerging companies and brands will fail (as is also the case for Western brands!), the strategies and their underlying strategic brand-building principles are here to stay.

Why buy this book? • A unique approach to emerging brands: No other book approaches the topic of emerging brands and economies from this angle • Outstanding list of brands and insider interviews: drawing on academic and practitioner research, and their consulting experience, Kumar and Steenkamp illustrate their practical advice with case studies, examples and interviews from highprofile brands including Corana, Emirates and Nandos Contents: Introduction / From B2B to B2C / Travel the Japanese Route / Use the Diaspora as Beachhead / Acquire and Migrate / Build National Champions / Brand Natural Resources / Leverage Country of Origin for Global Advantage / Overcome the Country of Origin Disadvantage / Conclusion June 2013 256pp 234x156mm Hardback £16.99 9781137276612 All languages available except Simplified Chinese http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?pid=637997

A dozen years of its implementation have shown that the planning was incomplete at best - add to this the weight of a deepening debt crisis among western nations, which continues unabated, and Europe has a very deep financial hole to climb out of. The time has therefore come to prepare for the foreseeable Euro breakup and to confront the redenomination risk associated to it.

'Sceptical voices have been a constant accompaniment to the construction of a Europe 'united in diversity' and as John McCormick reminds us there have been many memorable predictions over the years of its impending crisis or death. With his wide knowledge of history and expertise as a seasoned political analyst he is well aware of both the strengths and weaknesses of this process and of the inevitability of periods of stagnation and crisis as well as periods of dynamism.' - Jacques Delors, Former President of the European Commission In this insightful and engaging new book, John McCormick argues that the current climate of gloom makes it more important than ever to remind people about the achievements of Europe. The book makes a clear and unequivocal case that shows how the EU in spite of its problems has made Europe a better, more peaceful and more prosperous place.

Rethinking Latin America

HISTORY

Development Hegemony and Social Transformation Ronaldo P. Munck, Head of Civic and Global Engagement, Dublin City University, (Ireland) and holds visiting chairs in Development Studies, University of Liverpool, (UK), St Mary's University in Nova Scotia (Canada), and the University of Norköping, (Sweden)

Latin America is assuming an increasingly important position on the world stage with its heterodox economic policies and bold political experiments, attracting world-wide attention in an era characterized by a general crisis of perspectives. Since European colonization from 1500 onwards, the region has played a key role in the modernization and enrichment of Europe and the West. Today, the West is in crisis and the whole Enlightenment discourse is thrown into question. Is it possible that Latin America now shows the West where it is heading? With complex, dynamic, conflictual, but, above all, original processes of development - and with new visions of social transformation and new constructions of hegemony - the region offers a fascinating laboratory for the rest of the world and, maybe, a mirror of the future. Contents: Placing Latin America / Conquest to Modernity (1510-1910) / Nation-Making (1910 – 1964) / Hegemony Struggles (1959 – 1976) / Market Hegemony (1973 – 2001) / Social Counter-movement (1998 – 2012) / Globalization Within (1510 – 2010) March 2013 246pp 216x140mm 1 b/w table Hardback £55.00 9781137004116 All languages available http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?pid=574587

Paralysed with Fear The Story of Polio Gareth Williams, Professor of Medicine and former Dean of Faculty, University of Bristol (UK). He has written and co-authored over 20 books, including the Textbook of Diabetes (BMA Book of the Year, 1997) and has contributed to more than 30 others, including the Oxford Textbook of Medicine

For much of the twentieth century, polio inspired terror as the 'morning paralysis' which could break into any home and disable or kill a previously healthy person. The cruelty of the disease is epitomised by the iconic images of the crippled child and the iron lung. This story of mankind's struggle against polio is compelling, exciting and full of twists and pardoxes. One of the grand challenges of modern medicine, it was a battleground between good and bad science. Some research won Nobel Prizes; other work was flawed or fraudulent, holding up progress and endangering patients' lives. Gareth Williams takes an original view of the journey to understanding and defeating polio, exploring the profoundly moving experiences of victims alongside the medical and scientific landmarks in the history of the disease.

She is co-founder of International Political Anthropology and affiliated scholar at Cambridge University. Her publications include Senkiföldjén (On the No Man's Land) (Budapest, 1989), The Dissolution of Communist Power (Routledge, 1992) Looking at the relationship between modernity and the rise of charismatic leaders, Agnes Horvath uses 'threshold' situations to trace the conditions out of which political regimes developed.

SOCIOLOGY An Age of Limits Social Theory for the 21st Century Ralph Schroeder, Oxford Internet Institute University of Oxford (UK)

In this ambitious and bold book, Ralph Schroeder develops a new social theory centred on the notion of limits. The current era, from the 1970s onwards, has seen a departure from the three defining trends of the modern age: the struggle for social citizenship rights, the disembedding of markets, and the transformation of nature. Based on a comparative-historical analysis, the book argues that there are now similar constraints on social development throughout the global North and beyond. These constraints include the waning of conflicts driving the extension and deepening of rights, the instability of increasing financialization, and the progressive lack of control over the exploitation of natural resources. The key challenge for social theory therefore lies in identifying the cleavages between the dominant political, economic and cultural powers, and countervailing forces that can potentially overcome them. The book explores several advanced Western democracies in depth, as well as China and India. It will fundamentally challenge our theoretical understanding of contemporary societies and their dynamics.

Intimacy and Friendship on Facebook theorises the impact of Facebook on our social lives through the lens of intimacy. Lambert constructs an original understanding of why people welcome public intimacy on Facebook and how they attempt to control it, asking the reader to reimagine what it means to be intimate online. Drawing on in-depth qualitative research, Lambert argues that Facebook is intensifying the social labour needed to sustain and protect interpersonal intimacy, contributing to a state of 'intensive intimacy'. He addresses central questions regarding public intimacy: Does publishing our intimacies enrich our interpersonal lives or is it indicative of a more narcissistic, confessional culture? Facebook demands a novel, dynamic understanding of intimacy in a world where the contours of privacy are eroding.
