China s Media Go Global Book Description :

As part of its ‘going out’ strategy, China is using the media to promote its views and vision to the wider world and to counter negative images in the US-dominated international media. China’s Media Go Global, the first edited collection on this subject, evaluates how the unprecedented expansion of Chinese media and communications is changing the global media landscape and the role of China within it. Each chapter examines a different dimension of Chinese media’s globalization, from newspapers, radio, film and television, to social media and journalism. Topics include the rise of Chinese news networks, China Daily as an instrument of China’s public diplomacy and the discussion around the growth of China’s state media in Africa. Other chapters discuss entertainment television, financial media and the advertising market in China. Together, this collection of essays offers a comprehensive evaluation of complex debates concerning the impact of China on the international media landscape, and makes a distinctive addition to Chinese media studies, as well as to broader global media discourses. Beyond its primary readership among academics and students, China’s Media Go Global is aimed at the growing constituency of general readers, for whom the role of the media in globalization is of wider interest.

Mergers And Acquisitions Book Description :

This book is an honest attempt to capture the entire spectrum of M&A activity and share the contours of the implementation process. From valuation to integration, the book is sure to help managers think through what such a strategic move would mean to the organisation. The book attempts to provide working knowledge and skill of underlying concepts, contractual obligations, tax impact and legal background of M&A. Precisely, the book is written to show business managers and financial executives which kind of corporate restructuring can be worked out in the organisation and how best to analyse, design and implement M&A deals. The book can be classified into four basic frameworks. The first three chapters may be clubbed into the conceptual framework, where conceptual issues and economic consequences of M&A are discussed in detail. Critical issues like valuation and due diligence, which forms an integral part of any M&A, are examined with great care to emphasise the framework for pre-merger issues. The legal framework borders on areas like regulatory issues, tax impact, cross-border legal complications, transfer pricing and deal structuring. It is worth mentioning that the structuring of the deals has changed a lot in the recent years under the weight of hundreds of legal precedents, accounting rules and regulatory impositions. The last framework encompasses strategic issues of merger management leading to creation of value to the organisation. Attempt has also been made to find out why mergers fail and how to make them successful. To have a logical conclusion, towards the end, great corporate cases have been presented with high level of clarity and openness to reinforce the learning in earlier chapters. In fact, the cases are the USP of the book.

Going Global Book Description :

English summary: This book is both a study about the Socratic-Platonic conception of a good life, and an analytical study on self-knowledge, self-determination, and moral motivation. In the first part of his book, the author provides a detailed analysis of arguments from The Apology, Protagoras, Laches, Meno, Gorgias, Charmides, Republic, and Phaedo. For Socrates, the life we ought to live is the good life (or happiness, eudaimonia); the life we want to live - once we know what it means to live - is a good life. The good life requires the knowledge of human well-being, which is to be acquired by way of questioning ourselves and examining our and others' beliefs. An agent who possesses this knowledge pursues three general, supreme goals: she wants to know the particular action, which is all-things-considered in a present situation the best means to her happiness; she wants to act on her knowledge; and she does not want to harm other people. Hardy defends a non-reductive reading of Socratic intellectualism: The knowledge about human well-being is a comprehensiveuboth theoretical, and practical, knowledge, which encompasses all the relevant mental capacities and abilities of a person. In the second part of the book, the author presents a theory of self-knowledge, self-determination, and moral motivation on the basis of his interpretation of the Socratic conception of virtue. German text. German description: Wie ware es, ein nachdenkliches und gedanklich selbst-bestimmtes Leben zu fuhren - ein Leben, das von einem moglichst genauen und moglichst tauschungsresistenten Wissen uber die eigene Person bestimmt ist? Diese Frage wird in dieser Studie im Blick auf die Platonische Philosophie sowie im Blick auf zeitgenossische, systematische Fragen erortert. Wenn wir ein gelingendes Leben fuhren wollen, sollten wir Sokrates zufolge drei allgemeine, vorrangige, modale Ziele verfolgen: das Verfugen uber Wissen bzw. gerechtfertigte Meinungen, das von Wissen bestimmte Wollen und das

Mergers Acquisitions and Global Empires Book Description :

Companies that have acquired other enterprises through mergers and acquisitions (M&A) have in essence become entities that are akin to the global "empires" of history. In this book, the author weaves a unique narrative that looks at both empires of business created from M&A and global empires from world history in an attempt to answer the question: why do certain empires endure for long periods while others collapse in a short space of time. Empires formed from M&A or conquest have a hierarchical relationship of control and domination by a single authority or centre that can be described as a "parent company" or a "mother country" over another group of people based in a periphery that can be described as a "subsidiary company" or "colony." Given their similarities in development and structure, the author argues from looking at examples of empires in Western and Asian history as well as major M&A cases that long enduring empires created from M&A and global empires have a common cultural trait; their practice of "tolerance" within their organizations/societies. While there are books on the topics of M&A and empires, at present there is no single text that examines the impact of culture on both. This book is intended to fill such a void and provide hints and suggestions to those practitioners of M&A as well as students of business and history who want an accessible, non-technical narrative on what makes empires, whether they are of the nation or of M&A endure and prosper.

The Management of International Acquisitions Book Description :

This book addresses two important areas of concern for managers and management researchers. What are the management challenges involved in the acquisition of a foreign subsidiary? Why do companies pursue a strategy of growth through acquisition when the evidence shows performance is disappointing? In addition to addressing these questions, the authors examine both the acquisitions of foreign companies in the UK and the 'acquirers' themselves. They discuss the theoretical background to the debate over the significance of national management practices as opposed to international norms of practice shaped by global forces transcending national boundaries. They then compare and contrast the management practices of the five countries from which the acquirers covered in this book originate: the UK, the USA, Japan, France, and Germany. The authors' research indicates that while considerable convergence is taking place on many dimensions of management practice, distinct national management styles still exist among acquiring companies. The findings also show that although some policies are generally associated with better post-acquisition performance across the board, no one national approach is more successful than another, so long as it is implemented with confidence, determination, and consistency. Failure tends to follow from a lack of these qualities, rather than from having the 'wrong' management style.
