LIVES IN CONTEXT  The Art of Life History Research, Ardra L. Cole
1 Ardra L. Cole LIVES IN CONTEXT The Art of Life History Research
AltaMira Press 2001 0759101442 / 9780759101449 First Edition Softcover Very Good- 
Cover has light scuffing and light edge/corner wear. Pages are all intact and clan, however numerous pages have yellow highlighting, somewhat less towards rear of book. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 272 pages; The reflexive turn in qualitative research has transformed the process of doing life history research. No longer are research subjects examined through the lens of the all-knowing but supposedly invisible researcher. As Ardra Cole and Gary Knowles point out in this fresh introduction to conducting life history research, the process is now one of mutuality, empathy, sensitivity and caring. The authors carry the novice researcher through the steps of conducting life history research-- from conceptualizing the project to the various means of presenting results-- with an eye toward understanding the complex relationship between participant and researcher and how that shapes the project. In addition to examples from their own research, Cole and Knowles bring in the work of a dozen novice researchers who explain the challenges they faced in developing their own life history projects in a wide variety of settings. Well written, interesting, and pedagogically sound, LIVES IN CONTEXT is the ideal text for teaching life history research to students and an important reference for the bookshelf of all qualitative researchers. [426-noto]

JOINT VENTURING, Beamish, Paul W
6 Beamish, Paul W JOINT VENTURING
Charlotte, NC Information Age Publishing 2008 1593119658 / 9781593119652 First Edition Softcover New 
New book, no markings. 167 pages. B/w illustrations. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 167 pages; This short, reader-friendly book is about best practice in joint ventures: the factors and processes which lead to success. Every year, corporations establish thousands of joint ventures (JVs) , investing hundreds of billions of dollars. In fact, between 25% and 40% of all foreign investments take place via equity JVs. The use of JVs and strategic alliances has been rapidly growing. I've worked as a joint venture facilitator for Fortune 500 and other corporations for many years. The senior executives in these organizations often noted that the decision-making format I used with them would make a great book. This is it. The key purpose of the book is to demonstrate that joint ventures can work. They require however an open mind, and the willingness to work through a series of questions I provide. These relate to: testing the strategic logic; partnership and fit; shape and design; and operating the JV. Contrary to the perceptions of some, JVs can be just as profitable and survive just as long as wholly owned subsidiaries. They can in fact be effectively managed, and they are not going to cause a firm to lose its proprietary technology. Partnerships can work extremely well, and often, placing less emphasis on "control" is the way to go. If one is willing to acknowledge and respect that someone else (here a partner) has much to contribute, a stronger enterprise can result. True JVs can result in more stable and sustainable business, benefiting all partners, in whatever country they are located. The format of the book is intentionally conversational. It uses the Socratic method (question, answer, question, answer) which works so effectively in a case study classroom. Here the "classroom" is several business class seats on an international flight. This book is written for practicing managers and executives. Those contemplating the formation of a JV and those currently engaged in JVs will see improvement in the duration and performance of their collaborative ventures by following the recommended actions. A second audience is business schools and academics. The book is ideal for MBA, executive MBA and non-degree executive education courses or modules focused on JVs, alliances, cooperative strategies, etc. (*lower shipping options avail to some locations) [275-osl]

8 Brown, Paul B. & Britton Payne & John A. Byrne Publishing Confidential, The Insider's Guide to What It Really Takes to Land a Nonfiction Book Deal
AMACOM 2004 0814472265 / 9780814472262 First Edition Softcover Very Good 
Ex-library book, but still in very good condition - sturdy laminated cover and usual ex-lib type of markings. Pages are clean and intact, light scuffing to covers. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 192 pages; Who among us hasn't harbored a hidden--and, perhaps, not-so-secret--dream of publishing a book? Expanding a 20-page memo originally published in Inc. Magazine, Brown, with major credentials as a magazine editor (including Forbes and Inc. ) and an author (among his book titles is Customers for Life, 1990) , sets out to help us realize that desire. What he imparts is common sense. His three-step process to finding an agent starts with identifying the books with concepts close to yours, reading the acknowledgments, then contacting that agent. The list of questions to ask your editor begins with a query about the intended marketing plans. How he writes is pure entertainment, complete with editorial sidebars (courtesy of Ellen Kadin, acquisitions editor at AMACOM) , footnotes packed with laugh-out-loud information, and occasional illustrations that perk up the well-written text.

Lorimer 1997 1550285661 / 9781550285666 First Edition Softcover Very Good 
Ex-library book, but still in very good condition - sturdy laminated cover and usual ex-lib type of markings. Pages are clean and intact, light soiling outer edge of pages. Laminate on cover has a little wear at corners. ; Our Schools Series; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 190 pages; This book offers an in-depth study of a remarkable school for native students, the Joe Duquette High School in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The key to the school's success is its commitment to aboriginal spirituality as a guiding principle for both curriculum and human behaviour. The sacred circle, a recognition of the interrelatedness of all things, is the foundation of the school's philosophy. Sweet grass circles, trips to the sweat lodge, feasts, and respect for the teaching of Elders are central elements of the Duquette educational experience. Making the Spirit Dance Within offers a model for educating native students that stands in stark contrast to the ignorance of First Nations history and culture typical of mainstream Canadian schools.
