Global E Litism from the Author: Gili S. Drori. There is no question that technological advances in the early twenty-first century have ushered in a new kind of freedom that makes products and ideas available to groups of people all over the world. Nevertheless, there is a large gap between those who have access to information and communication technologies, such as the Internet, and those who do not. In Global E-Litism, Gili S. Drori expertly explores this global digital divide and simultaneously examines the cultural and political processes contributing to the growing technological disparity between developed and developing countries and the worldwide implications of these processes.

World Society from the Author: Georg Kr├╝cken. John W. Meyer's work broke new grounds in institutional thought in sociology and made him a central thinker for the emerging interdisciplinary field of neoinstitutionalism, while at the same time establishing institutional thought's comparative variant, world society theory. His scholarship plays a prominent role in contemporary social theory, and has shaped research areas such as international relations and globalization, organization theory, and management studies. One of the results of Meyer's wide-ranging and interdisciplinary influence is that his work has appeared in a diverse range of outlets. This book brings together some of John W. Meyer's widely-scattered work, reviewing four decades of scholarship, and adding several original pieces from Meyer's current work. It gathers substantive commentary on social processes, from stratification to globalization to socialization, as well as on key social institutions, from science to religion to law to education. In its expansive review, this book is both about neoinstitutional thought in general and world society theory in particular. This book is both by John W. Meyer and about John W. Meyer: to the compilation of Meyer's canonized and current work, Georg Kr├╝cken and Gili S. Drori add an essay on the theoretical and empirical contribution of Meyer's institutional theory, placing it within the broader context of contemporary social theory, globalization research, and organizational studies in both in the United States and Europe.

International Management Of Hazardous Wastes from the Author: Katharina Kummer. The Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and their Disposal celebrates its tenth anniversary in 1999. As the only treaty addressing international transfer and environmentally sound management of hazardous wastes at the global level, the Basel Convention has gained universal recognition as the key legal instrument in this field. The anniversary presents an opportunity to assess its evolution , and to consider challenges for the future. Other existing relevant legal instruments have also evolved further, and new ones have been adopted. This book analyses the relationship of the Basel Convention with other pertinent legal rules, and proposes means to form a comprehensive global regulatory regime for hazardous waste management on the basis of the Convention. Since the book was first published, a number of important developments have taken place. Chief among these is the adoption of an amendment to the Basel Convention which provides fora ban on exports of hazardous wastes from OECD to non OECD countries. A tendency to impose similar restrictions can also be observed in other relevant legal instruments. The introduction to this book has therefore been revised by way of a substantial new preface to give an overview of the important developments since 1994, and their impact on the overall analysis.

Neo Institutionalismus from the Author: Raimund Hasse. Der soziologische Neo-Institutionalismus hat seine Urspr├╝nge in der US-amerikanischen Organisationssoziologie. Im Vordergrund stehen Fragen des institutionellen Wandels und des gesellschaftlichen Umgangs mit institutionellen Vorgaben. Dabei liegt ein besonderes Augenmerk auf der gesellschaftlichen Durchsetzung und Einbettung vorherrschender Grund├╝berzeugungen rationalen Handelns. Die Insignien moderner Rationalit├Ąt werden in ganz unterschiedlichen Handlungsbereichen aufgesp├╝rt. Der Band f├╝hrt in die Grundlagen des Neo-Institutionalismus ein, er beschreibt die wichtigsten empirischen Ergebnisse und diskutiert theoretische Weiterentwicklungen. Dar├╝ber hinaus werden in der vorliegenden zweiten Auflage Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede zur Netzwerksoziologie, zu den Strukturtheorien von Giddens und Bourdieu sowie zur Systemtheorie Luhmanns benannt.
