Description : A quick scan of any newsstand is enough to confirm the widespread preoccupation with technological change. As a myriad of articles and advertisements demonstrate, not only are we preoccupied with technology, but we are bombarded with numerous reminders that the cutting edge is in constant motion. Most often the underlying assumption of Christians is that we have no choice but to find ways to cope with the latest and greatest. Indeed, it is often assumed that the church has no choice but to find ways to cope with its new technological context. This book does not make the same assumptions. Building on the work of Mennonite theologian John Howard Yoder, it argues that the practices of the church make it possible for Christians to conscientiously engage technology. This happens when we recognize that marks of the church such as patience, vulnerability, and servanthood can put technological ideals such as speed, control, and efficiency in their proper place. In the course of grappling with three examples of morally formative technologies--automobiles, genetically modified food, and the Internet--this book goes beyond Yoder's thought by emphasizing that the church also plays a crucial role in our moral formation.

Description : In this book, leading experts discuss innovative components of complexity theory and chaos theory in economics. The underlying perspective is that investigations of economic phenomena should view these phenomena not as deterministic, predictable and mechanistic but rather as process dependent, organic and always evolving. The aim is to highlight the exciting potential of this approach in economics and its ability to overcome the limitations of past research and offer important new insights. The book offers a stimulating mix of theory, examples and policy. By casting light on a variety of topics in the field, it will provide an ideal platform for researchers wishing to deepen their understanding and identify areas for further investigation.

Description : I enjoyed reading this book, which draws together a selection of case studies in entrepreneurship and innovation from eight new EU member countries that are still in the process of turbulent social and economic change. . . Each case is fascinating reading and in many of the studies the vibrant nature of the entrepreneurial change-driver shines through. . . the book is aimed at academics and researchers of entrepreneurship as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students of international business and entrepreneurship , as well as practitioners carrying out business in the transition economies. I would agree with that, the case studies do bring out the exciting and challenging nature of what has been, and can be achieved. . . there is much sound material here to stimulate both insight, and detailed classroom discussions. I would certainly recommend the book for a library purchase. . . it may well be a very useful purchase for researchers and students of the selected case countries. Lorraine Warren, International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behaviour and Research This volume offers insights into ways entrepreneurs innovate and adapt to political-economic structural changes. Detailed case studies illustrate how the adoption of new technology, creation of hybrid social and economic mission ventures and strategic re-orientation led to success in these transition economies. The stories of how these teams pooled resources, persevered and devised new approaches to innovation by creating something new or internationalizing gives us a sense of the new entrepreneurial approaches needed to succeed in this region. Given there were few role models and road maps, these entrepreneurs had to learn by doing. Their stories are inspirational and provide valuable lessons for entrepreneurial success in the wake of turbulent political-economic restructuring. Candida G. Brush, Babson College, US This original selection of case studies from eight new EU member countries looks at the ability of entrepreneurs to develop innovative and successful firms in an environment of turbulent social and economic change. The Cutting Edge focuses on the innovative potential that these transition country environments provide and how entrepreneurs have been able to convert these possibilities into successful businesses. The contributors highlight specific aspects of the interplay between the institutional setting and the environment. They also elucidate the individual characteristics of the entrepreneur that create an enabling context for innovative behaviour to develop and grow, drawing attention to the opportunities and constraints offered in each environment. This book provides invaluable insights for academics and researchers of entrepreneurship as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students of international business and entrepreneurship. It will also provide a stimulating and important read for people conducting business in Europe.
