Summary

Everyone knows that networking is important for  business success, but few people do it adequately or effectively.  That is because people sometimes see networking as an odious task, as something that they are not good at doing, and as not being authentic.  So there is a dilemma--on the one hand, people know that relationships matter--research shows that network skills are crucially important for promotions and earning more money--but on the other hand they do not do it.  Ross Walker not only nicely illustrates some important networking principles--such as becoming central, bridging unrelated groups, and spending time on relationships--but also provides practical answers to frequently-asked questions so that you can begin building your networking skills immediately.

    The 1950s was a decade of international economic recovery in the United States and most of Western Europe after the disasters of World War II. There was just one exception. The Irish economy actually contracted in those years, and over four hundred thousand people, out of a population of fewer than three million, emigrated. 
    Tom Garvin’s survey of the 1950s is based largely on a close reading of contemporary newspaper reports and analyses. 
    This darkest decade of the Irish state was brought about by an aging government that overstayed its welcome and an ideology of rural frugality that was supported by an under-developed educational system and the overweening power of the Catholic Church. 
    Garvin also traces the rise of the generation that broke this consensus and carried Ireland into the free-trade boom of the 1960s.

    John Dewey (1859-1952) is an American philosopher and psychologist most notably remembered for his theories on progressive education. He grew up in the rapidly industrializing town of Burlington, Vermont, where he was able to witness increasing social and economic division of the classes. Although he displayed little vivacity or imagination as a child, he was immensely analytical and spent years teaching and writing on a wide range of philosophical ideas. Of his twenty-one books and countless articles, "Human Nature and Conduct" is one of his best-known; it draws from Dewey's West Memorial Foundation lectures at Stanford University. This work criticizes the morality of the past as being too abstract and reliant on arbitrary rules rather than on a scientific understanding of human nature. Dewey argues that truth changes over time, and therefore life must be based on human experiences and utilizing one's knowledge in coping with those experiences.

    A sly send-up of the successful What Would Jesus Do? books, here is a satisfyingly mean light-hearted approach to business success—the Machiavellian way.  
    Machiavellians may not get to heaven, but on earth they have a definite edge on the competition. In this pithy and discretely vicious guide, Stanley Bing shows how the Florentine master statesman and political thinker would handle today’s myriad corporate challenges, seize the future by the throat, and make it cough up money, power, and superior office space. So, what exactly would Machiavelli do? 
    He would exploit himself only slightly less than he exploits others.He would be in love with his destiny.He would, for the most part, be a paranoid freak.He would always be at war.He would cultivate a few well-loved enemies.He would have a couple of good friends, too.He would acquire his neighbor.He would think BIG.He would move forward like a great shark, eating as he goes.And much, much more. 
    More than a road map to success, this hands-on guide will help anyone get what they want, whether or not they deserve it.

    A comprehensive and concise history of capitalism from its origins to today 
    In this authoritative and accessible book, one of the world's most renowned historians provides a concise and comprehensive history of capitalism within a global perspective from its medieval origins to the 2008 financial crisis and beyond. From early commercial capitalism in the Arab world, China, and Europe, to nineteenth- and twentieth-century industrialization, to today’s globalized financial capitalism, Jürgen Kocka offers an unmatched account of capitalism, one that weighs its great achievements against its great costs, crises, and failures. Based on intensive research, the book puts the rise of capitalist economies in social, political, and cultural context, and shows how their current problems and foreseeable future are connected to a long history. 
    Sweeping in scope, the book describes how capitalist expansion was connected to colonialism; how industrialism brought unprecedented innovation, growth, and prosperity but also increasing inequality; and how managerialism, financialization, and globalization later changed the face of capitalism. The book also addresses the idea of capitalism in the work of thinkers such as Marx, Weber, and Schumpeter, and chronicles how criticism of capitalism is as old as capitalism itself, fed by its persistent contradictions and recurrent emergencies. 
    Authoritative and accessible, Capitalism is an enlightening account of a force that has shaped the modern world like few others.
