The Principles and Practice of Effective Leadership

release date: Sep 07, 2021
The Principles and Practice of Effective Leadership
This thought-provoking and timely book asserts that the dichotomy between leaders and managers described in much business literature fails to recognize how the two roles overlap. The book discusses techniques for senior executives based on history and neuroscience to enhance their "managerial leadership" in different environments. The ethical dilemmas of directors and executives are explored, with lessons from both leadership failures and successes. The Principles and Practice of Effective Leadership redefines "leadership" as a morally neutral activity, reflecting the impact of strategic, cultural and operational contexts on a leader’s effectiveness. The authors suggest there are universal but morally neutral techniques for effective leadership that depend on the context in which they are practiced. In Part 1, the careers and personalities of historical figures including Elizabeth Tudor, Napoleon, and Atatürk are examined. Part 2 deliberates on why leadership cannot be separated from effective management and concludes that leadership is managerial, and best encapsulated in the concept of "wayfinding." In Part 3, the authors discuss the techniques "wayfinders" can learn to be both effective and ethical, using a simple and practical framework. This insightful book is essential reading for professionals, coaches, consultants, and academics interested in techniques and ethics of leadership and executive education.

The Ethics of Social Punishment

release date: Oct 19, 2020
The Ethics of Social Punishment
How do we punish others socially, and should we do so? In her 2018 Descartes Lectures for Tilburg University, Linda Radzik explores the informal methods ordinary people use to enforce moral norms, such as telling people off, boycotting businesses, and publicly shaming wrongdoers on social media. Over three lectures, Radzik develops an account of what social punishment is, why it is sometimes permissible, and when it must be withheld. She argues that the proper aim of social punishment is to put moral pressure on wrongdoers to make amends. Yet the permissibility of applying such pressure turns on the tension between individual desert and social good, as well as the possession of an authority to punish. Responses from Christopher Bennett, George Sher and Glen Pettigrove challenge Radzik''s account of social punishment while also offering alternative perspectives on the possible meanings of our responses to wrongdoing. Radzik replies in the closing essay.

Bosnia's Paralyzed Peace

release date: Jun 15, 2016
Bosnia's Paralyzed Peace
Two decades after the Dayton Peace Agreement came into force, Bosnia is not at war. However, the absence of war is not peace. Bosnia has failed to move on from conflict. Political processes are deadlocked. The country is in a state of political, social and economic paralysis. As the international community has downgraded its presence, conditions have deteriorated, irredentist agendas have resurfaced and the outlook is increasingly negative. War remains a risk because of myriad unresolved issues, zero-sum politics and incompatible positions among rival ethno-national elites. In the face of paralysis, international officials repeat the mantra that there is no alternative to Bosnia''s European path and urge the country''s leaders to see reason, to temper their rhetoric and to carry out internationally approved reforms - to no avail. Despite international reluctance to recognise failure, the day will come when it is impossible to ignore the gravity of the situation. When that day arrives, the international community will have to address the shortcomings of the peace process. This, in turn, will involve opening up the Dayton settlement. Christopher Bennett presents a cautionary political history of Bosnia''s disintegration, war and peace process. And he concludes by proposing a paradigm shift aimed at building ethno-national security and making the peace settlement self-sustaining.

Yugoslavia's Bloody Collapse

release date: Jan 01, 1997
Yugoslavia's Bloody Collapse
Over the past two years, the entire world watched in horror as one of Europe''s most stable countries plunged into an orgy of violence and bloodshed that has invoked comparisons to the Holocaust. Aside from empty threats and diplomatic hand wringing, the West has done little to stop the ethnic cleansing, the sieges, and the brutality that has characterized the conflict in the former Yugoslavia. Contrary to common wisdom, the hyper-violent disintegration of the former Yugoslavia is not simply and exclusively the product of inherent and irrational ethnic animosities and centuries of strife. In this engaging book, journalist Christopher Bennett traces the turning point to the 1987 struggle within the Serbian Communist party which was between adherents of a Serb nationalist ideology -embodied by Slobodan Milosevic- and the other Yugoslavs who clung to the vision of a multinational state. As soon as Milosevic gained the upper hand, he ruthlessly purged his rivals and launched a massive campaign of media indoctrination to stir up Serb nationalism. This new nationalism, which has repelled the world since 1991, is primarily Milosevic''s creation and not merely the result of historical enmity. As a student at two different Yugoslav universities in the 1980''s, Bennett witnessed firsthand many if the critical events which contributed to Yugoslavia''s destruction. He renders an incisive and accessible history, covering the period from Tito''s dictatorship to the present day.

Bosnia's Paralysed Peace

release date: May 01, 2013
Bosnia's Paralysed Peace
The scale of international investment in peace-building in Bosnia has been unprecedented. However, despite the massive international commitment in time,resources and effort, a decade and a half later Bosnias peace is at best paralysed. Christopher Bennett argues that the failure of peace-building is the failure of the liberal peace model. Policy-makers have focused on what should be in terms of trying to reproduce Western liberal democracy, rather than what is in Bosnia, where ethno-national security concerns remain critically important to most people.

The Apology Ritual

release date: Aug 21, 2008
The Apology Ritual
Christopher Bennett presents a theory of punishment grounded in the practice of apology, and in particular in reactions such as feeling sorry and making amends. He argues that offenders have a ''right to be punished'' - that it is part of taking an offender seriously as a member of a normatively demanding relationship (such as friendship or collegiality or citizenship) that she is subject to retributive attitudes when she violates the demands of that relationship. However, while he claims that punishment and the retributive attitudes are the necessary expression of moral condemnation, his account of these reactions has more in common with restorative justice than traditional retributivism. He argues that the most appropriate way to react to crime is to require the offender to make proportionate amends. His book is a rich and intriguing contribution to the debate over punishment and restorative justice.

Resonance Hyper-raman Characterization of Nonlinear Chromophores

release date: Jan 01, 2013
Resonance Hyper-raman Characterization of Nonlinear Chromophores
Hyper-Raman spectroscopy is a nonlinear optical probe which can be used to explore the multi-photon properties of molecules. Three studies are presented in this dissertation. The first study is a combined experimental investigation of the surfaceenhanced hyper-Raman scattering with a theoretical study of the electronic states of the Rhodamine 6G molecule. This study demonstrates that hyper-Raman spectroscopy can be used to probe electronic states which are one-photon inaccessible. The second study involves a comparison of experimentally measured resonance hyper-Raman spectra to first-principles calculations of the resonance hyper-Raman scattering. This study shows the utility of coupling hyper-Raman spectroscopy and hyper-Raman calculations to define the multi-photon properties of the molecule. The final study compares the experimentally collected surface-enhanced hyper-Raman spectra of Rhodamine 6G to the theoretical simulations of the resonance hyper-Raman for identical excitation energies. In this study, the mechanism of vibronic coupling in the hyper-Raman effect is fully explained, demonstrating the capability of hyper-Raman spectroscopy predicting the two-photon absorption mechanism.
