Institutions of Hanseatic Trade: Studies on the Political Economy of a Medieval Network Organisation
The merchants of the medieval Hanse monopolised trade in the Baltic and North Sea areas. The authors describe the structure of their trade system in terms of network organisation and attempts to explain, on the grounds of institutional economics, the coordination of the merchants' commercial exchange by reputation, trust and culture. The institutional economics approach also allows for a comprehensive analysis of coordination problems arising between merchants, towns and the `Kontore'. Due to the simplicity and flexibility of network trade the Hansards could bridge the huge gap in economic development between the West and the East. In the changing economic conditions around 1500, however, exactly these characteristics proved to be a serious limit to further retain their trade monopoly.

China's Economic Engagement in Africa: A Case Study of Angola
This book analyzes the growing influence of China in Angola. The author answers the question how and in what extent China has gained influence over the economic development of Angola since the end of the civil war in 2002. She presents the economic facilities of China in Angola from trade and investment to business transactions in the context of Andrew Moravcsik's Commercial Liberalism Theory. To measure the extension of China's economic influence through its way of investment (Angola-Mode) and a no strings attached -policy, not only the economic interdependent relations between China and Angola have become the focus of this far-reaching book. The author also discusses a process of gradual change of the relations of two rival powers - China and the USA - with Angola.

E-Mobility and Related Clean Technologies from an Empirical Corporate Finance Perspective: State of Economic Research, Sourcing Risks, and Capital Market Perception
The book deals with the use of clean technologies and in particular of electronic mobility from the perspective of the empirical capital market. The author sheds light on the developments of economic research in the past 20 years, identifies research gaps and analyses them in detail if data is sufficient. Based on the example of rare earths, he presents the impact of future raw material shortages when using mobile electronic technologies and proposes possible solutions for all market players from a financial research perspective. In addition, the book presents a first assessment of the industry's innovation development by means of the capital-market oriented evaluation of corporate cooperations in the field of electronic mobility.

Reinventing Art of Everyday Making
The word `everyday` is usually loaded with decidedly negative connotations. However, domestic everyday activities are not merely routine work, but also include complex, demanding tasks to solve. Even though everyday problem solving does not necessarily follow logical pathways, it is sensible and effective in handling practical problems. The studies presented in this book explore domestic everyday making, in terms of the kinds of cognitive, social, and practical tasks being faced and the types of skills needed in solving these tasks. The studies also illustrate the different research strategies appropriate to the investigation of the art and skills of domestic everyday making. The target audience of this book includes researchers and students of family and consumer studies, home economics and craft sciences, cultural studies and sociology. Because of the twofold aim of the book, it can be used as a textbook for both content as well as methodological studies.

Directors' Dealings and Insider Trading in Germany: An Empirical Analysis
Directors' Dealings and Insider Trading are well-known patrons to both, the academic literature and the financial press. While directors' dealings have been regulated in the US and many other countries, the German legislator tightened only a few years ago trading rules for insiders and imposed in July 2002 a notification requirement for directors' dealings. The author addresses directors' dealings and insider trading in Germany from different perspectives. He starts out with a short-term analysis tying in with previous research on the German market and follows with an in-depth long-term analysis. He closes with an ordered-probit model analyzing the relationship between corporate actions and directors' dealings.

In den meisten Branchen mussen Unternehmen heutzutage Innovationen durchfuhren, um sich im Wettbewerb behaupten zu koennen. Aufgrund der Neuheit als ihr konstitutives Merkmal mussen Innovationen anders gemanagt werden als Routineprodukte. In diesem Buch werden diese Managementfunktionen beschrieben. Der Bezugsrahmen, an dem sich die Beschreibung orientiert, ist der oekonomische Ansatz in Verbindung mit der Institutionenoekonomie. Es wird versucht, soweit als moeglich, die aus diesem Bezugsrahmen abgeleiteten theoretischen Sachverhalte mit Hilfe von empirischen Studien zu prufen. Insofern eignet sich das Buch fur Studierende der Wirtschaftswissenschaften, um sich einen UEberblick uber das Gebiet des Innovationsmanagements zu verschaffen. Aber auch theoretisch interessierte Praktiker koennen aus dem Inhalt nutzliche Anregungen gewinnen.

Ingenieure Auf Der Leinwand: Technische Visionen Und Ordnungsvorstellungen Im Deutschen Zukunftsfilm Der 1930er Jahre
Zu Beginn der 1930er Jahre tauchten im bis dato expressionistisch gepragten deutschen Zukunftsfilm vermehrt Ingenieure auf, die als Helden technischer Grossprojekte einem vordergrundigen Fortschrittsoptimismus froenten. Dabei verwiesen diese Filmfiguren auf Ordnungsvorstellungen, die technokratische bis voelkische Loesungen der zeitgenoessisch virulenten Frage nach dem Konflikt von Kapital und Arbeit bemuhten. In einem technikhistorischen Zugriff auf cineastische vergangene Zukunfte sowie unter Anwendung des Konzepts der hegemonialen Mannlichkeit analysiert die Autorin die filmische Inszenierung von Ingenieuren und Technik. Sie zeigt auf, dass sich diese Filme als (Zerr-)Spiegel einer zentralen Konfliktlinie der industriellen Klassengesellschaft der Zwischenkriegszeit verstehen lassen.

American Patriotism and Corporate Identity in Automobile Advertising: What's Good for General Motors Is Good for the Country and Vice Versa?
The triumphal march of the automobile and its connection with American culture have often been acknowledged in scholarship. By contrast, the culture-specific, value-oriented advertising strategies of the most important US carmaker General Motors (GM) in its home market have received less attention, especially in American Studies. This study focuses on the connection between GM products and America and the fundamental values represented by politics, business, and society. The author examines which textual and visual strategies GM uses in its image advertising to establish and maintain its patriotic American image. He argues that GM's advertising campaigns follow a patriotic leitmotif and are consistently in line with American core values, often generating new patriotic ideas.

The Emergence of Developmental States from a New Institutionalist Perspective: A Comparative Analysis of East Asia and Central Asia
This book addresses the relevance of institutional arrangements in East Asian developmental states for the Central Asian countries. It is argued that the Central Asian transition countries share crucial similarities with the economies of East Asia. By a detailed analysis of historical developments in Northeast and Southeast Asia, a coherent and comprehensive model of the developmental state on the basis of the New Institutional Economics is developed in this book. This model is applied to Central Asia by a comparative study on the basis of semi-structured interviews that were carried out in Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. Both Central Asian countries show notable similarities but also crucial differences to the East Asian developmental states.

Sustainable Development at Universities: New Horizons
This book, prepared in the context of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD), also known as Rio+20, contains the papers submitted to the World Symposium on Sustainable Development at Universities (WSSD-U-2012), which took place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on 5 and 6 June 2012.

Last but not least, a further aim is to document and disseminate the wealth of experiences available today, providing a truly global coverage. Sustainable Development at Universities: New Horizons is a highly comprehensive publication on sustainability in higher education. It is meant to go beyond a description of the current state of knowledge, and shall open the way for new thinking and new horizons in what is a rapidly expanding field, of central interest to both industrialised and developing countries.

The Concept of the Relevant Product Market: Between Demand-side Substitutability and Supply-side Substitutability in Competition Law
The proper definition of the relevant product market still is the lynchpin of competition law: defining the market too wide makes it impossible to capture the companies' behavioural margins that are the result of market power and are not neutralized by competition; defining the market too narrow creates market power and forces undertakings under the application of Art. 82 EC, Art. 2 ECMR, 19 German Competition Act. In European and German competition law the aspect of demand-side substitutability has been the most important criterion. The meaning of potential competition and especially of supply-side substitutability has not been systematically grasped. The book therefore re-thinks the relevant questions of proper market definition.

Financial Return Risk and the Effect on Shareholder Wealth: How M&A Announcements and Banking Crisis Events Affect Stock Mean Returns and Stock Return Risk- A Compendium of Five Empirical Studies across Selective Industries
This dissertation comprises five studies analyzing daily stock returns of listed firms. Studies one and two shed light on corporate diversification through M&A and how related risk dynamics affect shareholder wealth. Carrying over the risk analysis methodology `GARCH' to external events in studies three and four, the author individually scrutinizes the adverse implications of bank failures and bailouts in the 2007-2009 financial crisis. Finding opposing return shocks, he identifies the limits of the `symmetric' GARCH. As observed of the behavior of stock return data, volatility reacts asymmetrically to positive and negative return shocks. The advanced EGARCH incorporates this so called `leverage effect'. Applying the EGARCH in his final study, the author can simultaneously scrutinize the adverse bank events with an appropriate econometric foundation.

Implication Analysis for Biotechnology Regulation and Management in Africa: Baseline Studies for Assessment of Potential Effects of Genetically Modified Maize (Zea mays L.) Cultivation in Ghanaian Agriculture
Genetically modified organisms (GMO) are traded as staple crops on the world market. The Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety gives sovereign rights to each country to implement its own regulatory regime to protect their landscapes and agricultural heritage. Data on the receiving environment for countries in Africa are limited. How would it be possible to maintain the options of agriculture with or without GMO, and organic farming? Decisions require not only lab-testing of crops but also data on the different agricultural structures, field sizes, and socioeconomic conditions. This book presents an introduction into the topic, experiences from biosafety research executed in the EU and most important, insight into small-scale African agriculture that is of highest relevance for food security of a population majority. The data substantiates, that crop purity as a condition to maintain cultivation options and access export markets require highest attention and solutions that still have to be found.

Towards an Ethical-ecological Assessment of Companies in Nigeria: An Empirical Inquiry into the Relevance or Otherwise of the Frankfurt-Hohenheim Guidelines for the Ethical Assessment of Companies in the Nigerian Context- A Case of the Nigerian Microfinan
Multilateral evidence has continued to show that the conspicuous absence of reputable ethical-ecological criteria for evaluating companies and businesses in Nigeria is not only a lamentable disservice to the Nigerian people; but does not augur well for the Nigerian economy in particular and society at large. The Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) concept and practice has been notoriously inadequate in meeting this challenge. The CSR, which came to Nigeria via the pressures and ire drawn by the rogue activities of multi-national oil concerns in the Nigeria Delta, quickly dissipated its reputational capital and fossilized on its pretensions by assuming a paternalistic character of a philanthropic nature in the policy philosophies of many companies in Nigeria. The results of this absence have been catastrophic. The Niger Delta became an ecological wasteland thanks to unethical and unsupervised rapacity convoked there by the oil companies. Many Nigerian families have been chaperoned into poverty thanks to the perennial failure of many Nigerian banks and financial institutions, which is predicated on massive fraud and other sharp practices of bank officials. Need we talk about the costs in lives and limbs of the unethical practices of many companies in almost all sectors of the Nigerian economy, whose activities have been destroying the ecological integrity of our environment; constantly degrading the dignity and human rights of their employees, and endangering the lives and wellbeing of consumers across the country?

Multi-national and intercultural services organisations and the integration in front of global clients
This book investigates the business and bottom-line effects of intercultural and interdisciplinary collaboration in international services organisations. Caused by the organisation-specific separation of companies into divisions up to the client front the collaboration often proves to be difficult, cultural differences emerge. This occurs even more when services companies have to work together on an international level caused by outsourcing and offshoring. The book investigates the influences of intercultural collaboration and reflects the intercultural aspects of collaborating across countries, especially by out-sourcing and offshoring services from Western hemispheres to India, Poland, Romania or Chile. This volume concludes the series.

Multinational Enterprises in Regional Innovation Processes: Empirical Insights into Intangible Assets, Open Innovation and Firm Embeddedness in Regional Innovation Systems in Europe
This book is positioned at the interface of research in economic geography and strategic management, combining topics like intangible assets (IAs), Open Innovation strategies of multinational enterprises (MNEs), and Regional Innovation Systems (RIS). A micro-approach to analyzing the innovation behavior of nine MNEs in two advanced European economies, Germany and the UK, was applied, which has revealed key channels through which IAs are enhanced in the innovation processes of multinationals and has described their spatial roots and impact. Moreover, the study presents a novel matrix of the regional embeddedness of MNEs and systematically classifies the case study firms. Finally, it shows that geographical proximity to RIS is important for Open Innovation and enables MNEs to strengthen their absorptive capacity.

Commercialization of Smallholder Horticultural Farming in Kenya: Poverty, Gender, and Institutional Arrangements
This study assesses income and poverty effects of vegetable commercialization in Kenya with a special focus on gender issues and evaluates the performance of institutional arrangements that link small producers to the high-value vegetable supply chains. Using econometrics analysis of two rounds of rural household survey, the study reveals that the participation of smallholders in the domestic and export vegetable markets is declining. Weather risks, high costs of inputs and unskilled labour as well as erratic vegetable prices contribute to the declining trend. The impact evaluation of market participation reveals that households supplying the export market have a higher per capita income. The examination of gender roles indicates that the improvement of land productivity and the promotion of women's access to agricultural training and extension services might enhance their market participation. The analysis of vegetable contractual arrangements indicates that the governance structure is important to the profitability and hence the sustainability of farmer-trader relationships.
