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.

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.

Creating Public Trust: An Organisational Perspective
The aim of this book is to outline an organisational perspective in exploring public trust. A public management model, adopted for ongoing considerations, covers both changes in public organisations themselves, namely in their internal environment, as well as changes spurred by dynamic shifts in the external environment, such as the management system as a whole. The study attempts to demonstrate that efficient functioning of public organisations has a significant impact on shaping relationships based on trust within and between organisations. It also presents the concepts of corruption, fraud and trust. The research completed with regard to the organisational perspective of creating public trust is a contribution to the advancement of organisational theory.

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.

Minority Shareholder Monitoring and German Corporate Governance: Empirical Evidence and Value Effects
This book comprises three studies on minority shareholder monitoring in Germany. Mandatory disclosure requirements have increased transparency. An analysis of the information that is publicly available is presented, regardless of the size of the target corporation. The second essay in the form of an event study pays special attention to the German supervisory board and its appointment for a fixed term. Capital markets perceive an activist effort as being more credible under certain circumstances. The study as a whole is empirical evidence for increased minority shareholder activity in Germany. The evidence presented supports the strong shareholder rights perspective. It conflicts with the weak shareholder rights view brought forward in the international literature.

Changing Firm Boundaries in a New Information and Communication Environment: Evidence from the Manufacturing and Music Industry
The nature of the firm has changed since Coase (1937) and the birth of the theory of the firm. An important change is the advent of modern information and communication technology (ICT) that altered the business environment. The objective of the dissertation is to study the transformation of corporate organization by analyzing the impact of a changing information and communication environment on firm boundaries. This study analyzes firm boundaries in the manufacturing and the media sector. These two sectors are selected to illustrate important differences in the change of firm boundaries. Although both showed an impact of ICT, the direction of this change has been different because of contrary product characteristics. The reason is that ICT in the manufacturing sector mainly leads to communication and coordination improvements, while it induces problems to protect intellectual property rights (IPRs) in the media sector.

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.

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.

Vietnam: Natur, Geschichte, Gesellschaft, Wirtschaft, Politik
Vietnam ist ein faszinierendes Land. Es ist uberaus reich an Natur- und Kulturschatzen und hat in nur wenigen Jahren den Wandel zu einem modernen und selbstbewussten Staat vollzogen. Die Jahre des Krieges hat Vietnam dabei hinter sich gelassen - wenn auch nicht vergessen - und ist langst aus dem Schatten Chinas, seinem ubermachtigen Nachbarn im Norden, herausgetreten. Um das Land, seine Menschen, seine Geschichte und die rasante Entwicklung in Gesellschaft, Wirtschaft und Politik verstehen zu koennen, benoetigt man fundierte Natur- und kulturwissenschaftliche Kenntnisse, die dieses Buch in einer umfassenden, anschaulichen wie auch leicht zuganglichen Zusammenschau vermittelt. Das Buch behandelt unter anderem die Bereiche Klima und Wasser, Pflanzen und Tiere, Gesteine und Boeden, die Geschichte von den Anfangen bis zur Gegenwart, das Wirtschafts- und Finanzsystem, Bevoelkerungsstruktur, die vietnamesische Sprache und Literatur, Religionen, den Reformprozess von Doi Moi bis heute, den Staatsaufbau und die staatliche Entwicklung sowie den Prozess der Modernisierung und Demokratisierung. Zahlreiche Karten, Diagramme und Tabellen illustrieren und vertiefen die hier vorliegende Darstellung.

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.

Wie Kommt Der Kapitalismus an Sein Ende?: Kritik an Vorstellungen Zum Abgang Dieser Oekonomie
Im vor einigen Jahren erschienenen Buch Die bedurfnisorientierte Versorgungswirtschaft - eine Alternative zur Marktwirtschaft hat der Autor ein auf einer Kritik des Kapitalismus basierendes Modell einer nichtkapitalistischen, menschenfreundlichen OEkonomie entworfen. Obwohl darin auch kurz der UEbergang vom Kapitalismus zur nicht-kapitalistischen OEkonomie zur Sprache kam, wurde der Frage, wie der Kapitalismus an sein Ende kommt, wenig Platz eingeraumt. Das soll nun mit den Ausfuhrungen in dieser Abhandlung nachgeholt werden - und zwar in kritischer Auseinandersetzung mit Vorstellungen von Kapitalismuskritikern und tatsachlichen Versuchen, den Kapitalismus zu uberwinden.

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.

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.
