This critical companion is the first compendium of wide-ranging scholarship on Tabish Khair, who has emerged as a powerful voice in contemporary Indian English Literature. The essays in this collection examine Khair's novels and poetical collections in ways that yield new insights which are central to the understanding of Khair as a writer, and why he categorically refuses to assign his works with any literary genre. This critical anthology not only focuses new light on the thematic, social or cultural issues of Khair's writings, but also the in-depth reading of his multi-layered texts enable the readers to rethink the position of the author from an international and broader intellectual context.
A Foreign Affair
With six Academy Awards, four entries on the American Film Institute's list of 100 greatest American movies, and more titles on the National Historic Register of classic films deemed worthy of preservation than any other director, Billy Wilder counts as one of the most accomplished filmmakers ever to work in Hollywood. Film historians and critics, as well as his colleagues, have consistently celebrated Wilder as an American master from the classic studio era. Yet how American is Billy Wilder, the Jewish emigre from Central Europe? To study Wilder's work is to examine the reworking of several rich and varied cultural sensibilities, shaped by his experience of displacement. This book underscores these complexities, unpacking underlying contradictions where previous commentators routinely smoothed them out. Wilder emerges as an artist with roots in sensationalist journalism and the world of entertainment as well as with an awareness of literary culture and the avant-garde, features that lead to productive and often highly original confrontations between high and low.
A Day In The Life Of A Student Affairs Educator
This book constitutes a collection of case studies that explore issues faced by new professionals in student affairs, with the scenarios designed to develop ACPA/NASPA Professional Competencies.
These cases provide opportunities to create meaningful learning experiences for courses, training programs, and the mentoring new professionals, giving them exposure to the kinds of dilemmas they will encounter as they assume their leadership roles or start out on supervisory positions.
The cases are derived from interviews with current student affairs professionals, are based on real life dilemmas, reflect contemporary issues on our college campuses, and are designed to be easily used or adapted across all institutional types.
The cases cover the areas of advising and helping; assessment, evaluation and research; equity, diversity and inclusion; ethical professional practice; history, values and philosophy; human and organizational resources; law, policy and governance; leadership; personal foundations; and student learning and development, and vary in length to allow for multiple uses. Shorter cases can be role played and discussed in leadership training workshops, while longer cases can be used as take-home assignments or debated during longer training sessions.
The book begins with advice on how to use the cases, and concludes with general advice provided by current professionals in the field.

Succeeding In Business In Central And Eastern Europe
In Central and Eastern Europe, the 'Old Europe' of cobblestones co-exists with mobile phones, horse carts fight for road space with cars, and farmers' markets compete with mega-stores.
Western business professionals hoping to expand or start up new ventures in this complex environment must possess knowledge that is both comprehensive and subtle. What is it like to live and work in Central and Eastern Europe? How is business conducted there? What happened in Central and Eastern Europe to make integration into the rest of Europe so difficult? What important social and cultural issues must be mastered by Westerners hoping to flourish in this region? 'Succeeding in Business in Central and Eastern Europe', the fourteenth title in the 'Managing Cultural Differences Series' answers these and many other questions.
This book identifies a variety of factors, including an anti-business attitude and a resistance to Western-style change, that hinder some attempts at development within Central and Eastern Europe. It provides a frame of reference for understanding the "post-Soviet syndrome" - with its remnants of corruption and mistrust of managers and customers alike - that continues to haunt the countries of CEE. Dr. Sears and Ms. Tamulionyte-Lentz give readers solutions for overcoming the problems inherent in this region. They explain how Western executives can build relationships and find point of cultural "synthesis" with their Central and Eastern European counterparts and ultimately create a new and mutually beneficial work culture with their ventures.
With understanding and insights on the cultural nuances of the region, 'Succeeding in Business in Central and Eastern Europe' can help all Western visitors, even tourists, who arrive at this increasingly popular destination.

An authoritative work on aircraft control allocation by its pioneers
Aircraft Control Allocation addresses the problem of allocating supposed redundant flight controls. It provides introductory material on flight dynamics and control to provide the context, and then describes in detail the geometry of the problem. The book includes a large section on solution methods, including 'Banks' method', a previously unpublished procedure. Generalized inverses are also discussed at length. There is an introductory section on linear programming solutions, as well as an extensive and comprehensive appendix dedicated to linear programming formulations and solutions. Discrete-time, or frame-wise allocation, is presented, including rate-limiting, nonlinear data, and preferred solutions.
- Written by pioneers in the field of control allocation.
- Comprehensive explanation and discussion of the major control allocation solution methods.
- Extensive treatment of linear programming solutions to control allocation.
- A companion web site contains the code of a MATLAB/Simulink flight simulation with modules that incorporate all of the major solution methods.
- Includes examples based on actual aircraft.
The book is a vital reference for researchers and practitioners working in aircraft control, as well as graduate students in aerospace engineering.
