Was ist deine Bestimmung? Altruan – die Selbstlosen. Candor – die Freimütigen. Ken – die Wissenden. Amite – die Friedfertigen. Und schließlich Ferox – die Furchtlosen ... Fünf Fraktionen, fünf völlig verschiedene Lebensformen sind es, zwischen denen Beatrice, wie alle Sechzehnjährigen ihrer Welt, wählen muss. Ihre Entscheidung wird ihr gesamtes zünftiges Leben bestimmen, denn die Fraktion, der sie sich anschließt, gilt fortan als ihre Familie. Doch der Eignungstest, der über Beatrices innere Bestimmung Auskunft geben soll, zeigt kein eindeutiges Ergebnis. Sie ist eine Unbestimmte, sie trägt mehrere widerstreitende Begabungen in sich. Damit gilt sie als Gefahr für die Gemeinschaft. Beatrice entscheidet sich, ihre bisherige Fraktion, die Altruan, zu verlassen, und schließt sich den wagemutigen Ferox an. Dort aber gerät sie ins Zentrum eines Konflikts, der nicht nur ihr Leben, sondern auch das all derer, die sie liebt, bedroht...

The Social Structuring and Change of Business Systems

The late twentieth century has witnessed the establishment of new forms of capitalism in East Asia as well as new market economies in Eastern Europe. Despite the growth of international investment and capital flows, these distinctive business systems remain different from each other and from those already developed in Europe and the Americas. This continued diversity of capitalism results from, and is reproduced by, significant differences in societal institutions and agencies such as the state, capital and labour markets, and dominant beliefs about trust, loyalty, and authority. This book presents the comparative business systems framework for describing and explaining the major differences in economic organization between market economies in the late twentieth century. This framework identifies the critical variations in coordination and control systems across forms of industrial capitalism, and shows how these are connected to major differences in their institutional contexts. Six major types of business system are identified and linked to different institutional arrangements. Significant differences in post-war East Asian business systems and the ways in which these are changing in the 1990s are analysed within this framework, which is also extended to compare the path-dependent nature of the new capitalisms emerging in Eastern Europe.

Der Aufstand hat begonnen ... In einer ungewissen Zukunft, in der die Fraktionen zerfallen, gibt es keine Sicherheiten mehr. Außer der einen: Wo auch immer ich hingehe – ich gehe dorthin, weil ich es will... Drei Tage ist es her, seit die Ken mithilfe der ferngesteuerten Ferox-Soldaten unzählige Altruan umgebracht haben. Drei Tage, seit Tris' Eltern starben. Drei Tage, seit sie selbst ihren Freund Will erschossen hat – und aus Scham und Entsetzen darüber schweigt. Mit den überlebenden Altruan haben Tris und Tobias sich zu den Amite geflüchtet – doch dort sind sie nicht sicher, denn der Krieg zwischen den Fraktionen hat gerade erst begonnen. Wieder einmal muss Tris entscheiden, wo sie hingehört – selbst wenn es bedeutet, sich gegen die zu stellen, die sie am meisten liebt. Und wieder einmal kann es nur Tris in ihrer Rolle als Unbestimmte gelingen, die Katastrophe abzuwenden...

This book is based on several courses taught by the author at the University of Michigan between 1908 and 1912. It covers two main topics: asymptotic series and the theory of summability. The discussion of nowhere convergent asymptotic series includes the so-called MacLaurent summation formula, determining asymptotic expansions of various classes of functions, and the study of asymptotic solutions of linear ordinary differential equations. On the second topic, the author discusses various approaches to the summability of divergent series and considers in detail applications to Fourier series.

Divergent Paths is the first in a series of three volumes that explores the historiography of the relationship between Hegel and Marx; it sets the terms of the relationship between Marx and Engels, and explores the genesis of the theories of Marxism and Engelsism from the late 19th century to the present day. Given the vast pool of contemporary post Marxist theoretical work, a study like this is sorely needed. This is the most thorough exploration of Marx's ideas from Hegel through to the present day and is absolutely essential reading.

Review of the original edition: This is an inspiring textbook for students who know the theory of functions of real and complex variables and wish further knowledge of mathematical analysis. There are no problems displayed and labelled ``problems,'' but one who follows all of the arguments and calculations of the text will find use for his ingenuity and pencil. The book deals with interesting and important problems and topics in many fields of mathematical analysis, to an extent very much greater than that indicated by the titles of the chapters. It is, of course, an indispensable handbook for those interested in divergent series. It assembles a considerable part of the theory of divergent series, which has previously existed only in periodical literature. Hardy has greatly simplified and improved many theories, theorems and proofs. In addition, numerous acknowledgements show that the book incorporates many previously unpublished results and improvements of old results, communicated to Hardy by his colleagues and by others interested in the book. --Mathematical Reviews

Divergent Social Worlds

Neighborhood Crime and the Racial-Spatial Divide

View: 3074

Release On

More than half a century after the first Jim Crow laws were dismantled, the majority of urban neighborhoods in the United States remain segregated by race. The degree of social and economic advantage or disadvantage that each community experiences—particularly its crime rate—is most often a reflection of which group is in the majority. As Ruth Peterson and Lauren Krivo note in Divergent Social Worlds, “Race, place, and crime are still inextricably linked in the minds of the public.” This book broadens the scope of single-city, black/white studies by using national data to compare local crime patterns in five racially distinct types of neighborhoods. Peterson and Krivo meticulously demonstrate how residential segregation creates and maintains inequality in neighborhood crime rates. Based on the authors’ groundbreaking National Neighborhood Crime Study (NNCS), Divergent Social Worlds provides a more complete picture of the social conditions underlying neighborhood crime patterns than has ever before been drawn. The study includes economic, social, and local investment data for nearly nine thousand neighborhoods in eighty-seven cities, and the findings reveal a pattern across neighborhoods of racialized separation among unequal groups. Residential segregation reproduces existing privilege or disadvantage in neighborhoods—such as adequate or inadequate schools, political representation, and local business—increasing the potential for crime and instability in impoverished non-white areas yet providing few opportunities for residents to improve conditions or leave. And the numbers bear this out. Among urban residents, more than two-thirds of all whites, half of all African Americans, and one-third of Latinos live in segregated local neighborhoods. More than 90 percent of white neighborhoods have low poverty, but this is only true for one quarter of black, Latino, and minority areas. Of the five types of neighborhoods studied, African American communities experience violent crime on average at a rate five times that of their white counterparts, with violence rates for Latino, minority, and integrated neighborhoods falling between the two extremes. Divergent Social Worlds lays to rest the popular misconception that persistently high crime rates in impoverished, non-white neighborhoods are merely the result of individual pathologies or, worse, inherent group criminality. Yet Peterson and Krivo also show that the reality of crime inequality in urban neighborhoods is no less alarming. Separate, the book emphasizes, is inherently unequal. Divergent Social Worlds lays the groundwork for closing the gap—and for next steps among organizers, policymakers, and future researchers.

Emergent Economies, Divergent Paths

The economies of South Korea and Taiwan in the second half of the twentieth century are to scholars of economic development what the economy of Britain in the late eighteenth and early nineteeth centuries is to economic historians. This book, first published in 2006, is a collaboration between a leading trade economist and a leading economic sociologist specializing in East Asia, and offers an explanation of the development paths of post-World War II Korea and Taiwan. The ambitions of the authors go beyond this, however. They use these cases to reshape the way economists, sociologists, and political scientists will think about economic organization in the future. They offer nothing less than a theory of, and extended evidence for, how capitalist economies become organized. One of the principal empirical findings is that a primary cause for the industrialization of East Asia is the retail revolution in the United States and the demand-responsiveness of Asian manufacturers.
