Culture and Demography in Organizations

release date: Jul 13, 2021
Culture and Demography in Organizations
How do corporations and other organizations maintain and transmit their cultures over time? Culture and Demography in Organizations offers the most reliable and comprehensive answer to this complex question to date. The first book on the subject to ground its analysis in mathematical tools and computer simulation, it goes beyond standard approaches, which focus on socialization within organizations, by explicitly considering the effects of demographic processes of entry, exit, and organizational growth. J. Richard Harrison and Glenn R. Carroll base their analysis on a formal model with three components: hiring, socialization, and employee turnover. In exploring the model's implications through computer simulation methods, the authors cover topics such as organizational growth and decline, top management teams, organizational influence networks, terrorist organizations, cultural integration following mergers, and organizational failure. For each topic, they identify the conditions influencing cultural transmission. In general, they find that demographic processes play a central role in influencing organizational culture and that studying these processes leads to some surprising insights unavailable when considering socialization alone. This book, which also serves as an ideal introduction to the increasingly popular use of computer simulation, will be an indispensable resource for scholars and students of organization theory and behavior, cultural studies, strategic management, sociology, economics, and social simulation.

1KBW on International Child Abduction

release date: Oct 08, 2020
1KBW on International Child Abduction
International child abduction is a distinct field of practice within the family law sphere. It is a topic that requires specialist knowledge of a large body of case-law. It also requires an understanding of several international regulations and treaties. In addition to cases that are governed by our international reciprocal arrangements, there are also some cases, usually described as 'non-Hague Convention abductions', which concern abductions to or from non-Member States of the above instruments. Such cases present their own specific complications and are subject to their own line of legal authority. The majority of international child abduction cases take place in the High Court, and practitioners in this area therefore also need to have good practical knowledge of High Court practice and procedure. This includes issues such as how to make urgent without notice applications, the criteria to apply for different types of Tipstaff orders, and when to seek specific orders for disclosure to assist in tracing a child. Most family solicitors encounter child abduction cases from time to time, but only a relatively small number are specialists in this field. This title provides a practical and accessible guide to the subject which can be used as a reference tool by all family practitioners, but which is also sufficiently detailed to be of use to those who specialise in this area. It includes relevant statutory and other materials, so that practitioners can take the book to court and have all the tools needed for day-to-day practice in one place. In addition to general commentary there are flow charts explaining procedural steps to be undertaken and diagrams summarising key cases.

The Battle of Moscow 1941–1942

release date: Jun 19, 2015
The Battle of Moscow 1941–1942
"The Battle of Moscow, 1941–1942: The Red Army’s Defensive Operations and Counteroffensive Along the Moscow Strategic Direction" is a detailed examination of one of the major turning points of World War II, as seen from the Soviet side. The Battle of Moscow marked the climax of Hitler’s “Operation Barbarossa,” which sought to destroy the Soviet Union in a single campaign and ensure German hegemony in Europe. The failure to do so condemned Germany to a prolonged war it could not win. This work originally appeared in 1943, under the title "Razgrom Nemetskikh Voisk pod Moskvoi" (The Rout of the German Forces Around Moscow). The work was produced by the Red Army General Staff’s military-historical section, which was charged with collecting and analyzing the war’s experience and disseminating it to the army’s higher echelons. This was a collective effort, featuring many different contributors, with Marshal Boris Mikhailovich Shaposhnikov, former chief of the Red Army General Staff and then head of the General Staff Academy, serving as general editor. The book is divided into three parts, each dealing with a specific phase of the battle. The first traces the Western Front’s defensive operations along the Moscow direction during Army Group Center’s final push toward the capital in November–December, 1941. The study pays particular attention to the Red Army’s resistance to the Germans’ attempts to outflank Moscow from the north. Equally important were the defensive operations to the south of Moscow, where the Germans sought to push forward their other encircling flank. The second part deals with the first phase of the Red Army’s counteroffensive, which was aimed at pushing back the German pincers and removing the immediate threat to Moscow. Here the Soviets were able to throw the Germans back and flatten both salients, particularly in the south, where they were able to make deep inroads into the enemy front to the west and northwest. The final section examines the further development of the counteroffensive until the end of January 1942. This section highlights the Soviet advance all along the front and their determined but unsuccessful attempts to cut off the Germans’ Rzhev–Vyaz’ma salient. It is from this point that the front essentially stabilized, after which events shifted to the south. This new translation into English makes available to a wider readership this valuable study.
