The Oxford Handbook of Political Institutions

OUP 2006 | 834 | ISBN: 0199275696 | PDF | 2 Mb

The Oxford Handbooks of Political Science is a ten-volume set of reference books offering authoritative and engaging critical overviews of the state of political science. Each volume focuses on a particular part of the discipline, with volumes on Public Policy, Political Theory, Political Economy, Contextual Political Analysis, Comparative Politics, International Relations, Law and Politics, Political Behavior, Political Institutions, and Political Methodology. The project as a whole is under the General Editorship of Robert E. Goodin, with each volume being edited by a distinguished international group of specialists in their respective fields. The books set out not just to report on the discipline, but to shape it. The series will be an indispensable point of reference for anyone working in political science and adjacent disciplines. The study of political institutions is among the founding pillars of political science. With the rise of the 'new institutionalism', the study of institutions has returned to its place in the sun. This volume provides a comprehensive survey of where we are in the study of political institutions, covering both the traditional concerns of political science with constitutions, federalism and bureaucracy and more recent interest in theory and the constructed nature of institutions. The Oxford Handbook of Political Institutions draws together a galaxy of distinguished contributors drawn from leading universities across the world. Authoritative reviews of the literature and assessments of future research directions will help to set the research agenda for the next decade. ...

Jeff Madura, "Financial Markets and Institutions, Ninth Edition"
S.,th-W,.rn C,ge Pub | 2009 | ISBN: 1439038848 | 752 pages | PDF | 257 MB

With its proven conceptual framework and clear presentation, FINANCIAL MARKETS AND INSTITUTIONS, Ninth Edition (with Stock-Trak coupon), can help you understand why financial markets exist, how financial institutions serve those markets, and the various services those institutions offer. In describing each type of market, the book emphasizes the securities traded in that market and how financial institutions participate in it, while descriptions of financial institutions focus on their management, performance, regulatory aspects, use of financial markets, and sources and uses of funds. Following the introduction of key financial markets and institutions, the book explores the functions of the Federal Reserve System, the major debt security markets, equity security markets, and the derivative security market. Continuing a strong tradition of timely examples and practical applications, the ninth edition includes extensive updates on the global financial and credit crisis, revised questions and exercises, and new WALL STREET JOURNAL features. In addition, integrated learning tools such as chapter summaries, learning objectives, Internet exercises, special coverage of global financial issues, point/counterpoint discussions of controversial topics, and features to help you interpret current financial news reinforce key concepts and make it easier for you to master the material.

Handbook of Drug-Nutrient Interactions, 2nd Edition
Publisher: Humana Press | 2009 | PDF | 824 pages | ISBN: 1603273638 | 9.6Mb

Handbook of Drug-Nutrient Interactions, Second Edition is an essential new work that provides a scientific look behind many drug-nutrient interactions, examines their relevance, offers recommendations, and suggests research questions to be explored. In the five years since publication of the first edition of the Handbook of Drug-Nutrient Interactions new perspectives have emerged and new data have been generated on the subject matter. Providing both the scientific basis and clinical relevance with appropriate recommendations for many interactions, the topic of drug-nutrient interactions is significant for clinicians and researchers alike. For clinicians in particular, the book offers a guide for understanding, identifying or predicting, and ultimately preventing or managing drug-nutrient interactions to optimize patient care. Divided into six sections all chapters have been revised or are new to this edition.

Politics in Time: History, Institutions, and Social Analysis

2004 | 208 | ISBN: 0691117144 , 0961117152 | DJVU | 6 Mb

This groundbreaking book represents the most systematic examination to date of the often-invoked but rarely examined declaration that "history matters." Most contemporary social scientists unconsciously take a "snapshot" view of the social world. Yet the meaning of social events or processes is frequently distorted when they are ripped from their temporal context. Paul Pierson argues that placing politics in time - constructing "moving pictures" rather than snapshots - can vastly enrich our understanding of complex social dynamics, and greatly improve the theories and methods that we use to explain them. Politics in Time opens a new window on the temporal aspects of the social world. It explores a range of important features and implications of evolving social processes: the variety of processes that unfold over significant periods of time, the circumstances under which such different processes are likely to occur, and above all the significance of these temporal dimensions of social life for our understanding of important political and social outcomes. Ranging widely across the social sciences, Pierson's analysis reveals the high price social science pays when it becomes ahistorical. And it provides a wealth of ideas for restoring our sense of historical process. By placing politics back in time, Pierson's book is destined to have a resounding and enduring impact on the work of scholars and students in fields from political science, history, and sociology to economics and policy analysis....

The mission of the Department of the Treasury ('Treasury') focuses on promoting economic growth and stability in the United States. Critical to this mission is a sound and competitive financial services industry grounded in robust consumer protection and stable and innovative markets. Financial institutions play an essential role in the U.S. economy by providing a means for consumers and businesses to save for the future, to protect and hedge against risks, and to access funding for consumption or organise capital for new investment opportunities. A number of different types of financial institutions provide financial services in the United States: commercial banks and other insured depository institutions, insurers, companies engaged in securities and futures transactions, finance companies, and specialised companies established by the government. Together, these institutions and the markets in which they act underpin economic activity through the intermediation of funds between providers and users of capital. This is an edited and excerpted edition. This intermediation function is accomplished in a number of ways. For example, insured depository institutions provide a vehicle to allocate the savings of individuals. Similarly, securities companies facilitate the transfer of capital among all types of investors and investment opportunities. Insurers assist in the financial intermediation process by providing a means for individuals, companies, and other financial institutions to protect assets from various types of losses. Overall, financial institutions serve a vitally important function in the U.S. economy by allowing capital to seek out its most productive uses in an efficient matter. Given the economic significance of the U.S. financial services sector, "Treasury" considers the structure of its regulation worthy of examination and re-examination. ...

New Financial Instruments and Institutions: Opportunities and Policy Challenges

New Financial Instruments and Institutions: Opportunities and Policy Challenges by Yasuyuki Fuchita and Robert E. Litan

Brookings Institution Press | 227 pages | English | 2007 | ISBN: 0815729839 | PDF | 12 MB

Japan's financial institutions and instruments are closely related to the United States model. In both countries, new financial instruments, such as structured financial products and exchange-traded funds (ETFs), and new financial institutions--which include hedge funds and private equity funds--present opportunities as well as policy and regulatory challenges. This timely book presents important and original research on these new institutions and instruments, illustrating the similarities and differences across the two countries. It continues the productive collaboration between the Brookings Institution and the Nomura Institute of Capital Markets Research in examining current issues in capital and financial markets.
