By 2020, some 400 Chinese New Towns will have been built, representing an unprecedented urban growth. While some of these massive developments are still empty today, others have been rather successful. The substantial effort on the part of the Chinese government is to absorb up to 250 million people, chiefly migrants from the rural parts of the country. Unlike in Europe and North America, where new towns grew in accordance to the local industries, these new Chinese cities are mostly built to the point of near completion before introducing people. The interdisciplinary publication, written by architects, planners and geographers, explores the new urbanistic phenomenon of the "Chinese New Town". Especially commissioned photographs and maps illustrate many examples of these new settlements.

A rigorous introduction to optimal control theory, with an emphasis on applications in economics. This book bridges optimal control theory and economics, discussing ordinary differential equations, optimal control, game theory, and mechanism design in one volume. Technically rigorous and largely self-contained, it provides an introduction to the use of optimal control theory for deterministic continuous-time systems in economics. The theory of ordinary differential equations (ODEs) is the backbone of the theory developed in the book, and chapter 2 offers a detailed review of basic concepts in the theory of ODEs, including the solution of systems of linear ODEs, state-space analysis, potential functions, and stability analysis. Following this, the book covers the main results of optimal control theory, in particular necessary and sufficient optimality conditions; game theory, with an emphasis on differential games; and the application of control-theoretic concepts to the design of economic mechanisms. Appendixes provide a mathematical review and full solutions to all end-of-chapter problems. The material is presented at three levels: single-person decision making; games, in which a group of decision makers interact strategically; and mechanism design, which is concerned with a designer's creation of an environment in which players interact to maximize the designer's objective. The book focuses on applications; the problems are an integral part of the text. It is intended for use as a textbook or reference for graduate students, teachers, and researchers interested in applications of control theory beyond its classical use in economic growth. The book will also appeal to readers interested in a modeling approach to certain practical problems involving dynamic continuous-time models.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is about managing an organization’s impact on society and the environment through its operations, products or services and through its interaction with key stakeholders such as employees, customers, investors and suppliers. This book addresses how outsourcing can be used as a powerful tool for advancing critical social, economic, and environmental issues on a global basis. Additionally, it examines corporate responsibility policies and practices for outsourcing, including identifying and showcasing policies that our membership have adopted, creating a framework for companies to model new CR policies, and provides multiple resources for readers. Active for several years within the IAOP is the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Subcommittee of the IAOP Advocacy and Outreach Committee. As an outgrowth of the work of the CSR Subcommittee, the need for an Outsourcing Professional’s Guide to CSR was identified. From both the 2009 and the more recent 2011 IAOP survey on corporate social responsibility in outsourcing, it was shown that an overwhelming (and consistent) 84-85% of organizations would follow IAOP guiding principles for socially responsible outsourcing. This stable percentage of organizations looking for guidance bodes well for the development of the IAOP’s Outsourcing Professionals Guide to Corporate Social Responsibility. IAOP® is the global, standard-setting organization and advocate for the outsourcing profession. With a global community of more than 110,000 members and affiliates worldwide, IAOP is the leading professional association for organizations and individuals involved in transforming the world of business through outsourcing, offshoring and shared services. Our client-side members are, on average, responsible for $60 million per year of outsourcing spending with some overseeing outsourcing programs in the billions of dollars. 85% of IAOP members credit IAOP for improved outsourcing outcomes at their organizations and 93% of IAOP’s Certified Outsourcing Professionals® (COPs) say that the designation has had a positive impact on their careers.

Health and Elite Sport is the first book to critically examine the relationship between participation in high performance sport and health outcomes. Drawing on theory and empirical data from a wide range of disciplines, including sociology, developmental psychology, epidemiology, and physical education, the book explores the benefits and detriments of participation in elite sport for both individuals (athletes, coaches, spectators) and communities. Written by a team of leading international sport researchers, the book examines key issues including: Talent identification and young athletes Abuse in sport Positive youth development through sport Athlete health in periods of transition Health, sport and the family Health in professional sport The Olympics, Paralympics and public health Long term effects of participation in elite sport Highlighting the connections and contradictions between high performance sport and health, the book also discusses the clear and important implications for our socio-cultural, political and developmental understanding of sport. Health and Elite Sport is fascinating and important reading for all students and researchers with an interest in youth sport, sports development, sport policy, sports coaching, exercise and health, physical education, the sociology of sport, or the sociology of health.
