The old lawyer caressed his smoothly shaven chin and gazed out at Joyce Lavillotte from under his shaggy eyebrows, as from the port-holes of a castle, impressing her as being quite as inscrutable of aspect and almost as belligerent. She, flushed and bright-eyed, leaned forward with an appealing air, opposing the resistless vigor of youth to the impassiveness of age.

She, flushed and bright-eyed, leaned forward with an appealing air, opposing the resistless vigor of youth to the impassiveness of age."It is not the crazy scheme you think it, Mr. Barrington," she said in that liquid voice which was an inheritance from her creole ancestry, "and I do not mean to risk my last dollar. You know I have means that cannot be touched. Why should you be so sure I cannot manage the Works-especially when Mr. Dalton is so capable and--"The lawyer uttered something between a grunt and a laugh."It's Mr. Dalton who will manage it all. What do you know of the Works?""No, he will not, Mr. Barrington. The factory, of course, is his province, but the village shall be mine. You think, because I am not yet twenty-two, that I do not know my own mind, but you forget how long I have been motherless; and a girl has to think for herself when her mother goes."


China's Offshore Investments : A Network Approach

RRP $285.99

Presenting a thorough analysis of China's outward Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in the last quarter of a century - something little explored in the literature - this book explores, the rationale behind its emergence and development. China's outward FDI exhibits unique features in respect of timing, pace and geographical distribution that defy the existing mainstream theories of FDI. China's Offshore Investments uses the framework of a network model of FDI, which is developed by applying economic norms to ideas of networks in business analysis. This network model has been designed specifically by Dexin Yang for the purpose of theorising the changing pattern of FDI in the era of globalisation in general and interpreting China's FDI in particular.
Scholars and researchers interested in the fields of FDI and Multinational Enterprise (MNE) analysis, economic development and the Chinese economy will all find this book of great interest. Policymakers will also find much to engage them within this book.


The Evolution Of Us Peacekeeping Policy Under Clinton

This fascinating study examines the dynamic process through which the Clinton administration developed a policy towards UN peace support operations. The book explains, in an accessible way, why policy-makers in the administration eventually adopted such a different posture towards UN operations from the one they set out to write. In most respects, the policy enshrined in Presidential Decision Directive 25 (PDD 25) of 1994, was a far more restrained and cautious view of UN peace support operations than the Bush administration's policy which, ironically, was much criticized by Bill Clinton during the 1992 presidential elections. br br br br The author addresses the fundamental question: what factors influenced the shift in US policy towards the United Nations and its peace support operations - and which factors were clearly dominant? Based on primary sources and interviews with political personalities and officials, the author examines four main factors which shaped the development of policy: the Executive branch, the bureaucracies (the State Department and Department of Defense), Congress and public opinion. These provide the basis for the core chapters of the book, which also contains a chapter on methodology and a chapter of summary analysis. br br br br The four factors are assessed through the lens of a 'political process model'. This model presents government decision-making as designed or influenced by a combination of several so-called power centres or political actors, such as the executive, advisers, the media and so on. In the case of US peacekeeping policy, and the emergence of PDD 25, it was domestic politics that prompted the shift in US policy. br br br br At the heartof the Clinton administration's backtracking lay a divergence between the Executive and Congress over foreign policy in general, but US policy towards the UN and the use of American military power abroad in particular. Rather than defend the fifty-year trend towards presidential prerogatives in these policy areas, Clinton abandoned a proactive UN policy in order to reduce Congressional criticism and husband his political capital for domestic policy initiative in order to secure re-election in 1996.
