Description : The Routledge Companion to Ethics, Politics and Organizations synthesizes and extends existing research on ethics in organizations by explicitly focusing on ‘ethico-politics’ - where ethics informs political action. It draws connections between ethics and politics in and around organizations and the workplace, examines cutting-edge areas and sets the scene for future research. Through a wealth of international and multidisciplinary contributions this volume considers the broad range of ways in which ethics and politics can be conceived and understood. The chapters look at various ethical traditions, as well as the discursive deployment of ethical terminology in organizational settings, and they also examine large scale political structures and processes and how they relate to different forms of politics which affect behaviour in organizations. These many possibilities are united by a focus on how ethics can be used to inform and justify the exercise of power in organizations. This collection will be a valuable reference source for students and researchers across the disciplines of organizational studies, ethics and politics.

Description : The future of Landerton, a town on the verge of chaos, lies in the hands of two brothers. Fortunately, these aren't just average, everyday men. These brothers are heroes. And not just average, everyday heroes-they are superheroes named Lightning Bolt and Blazer, although they have no memories of their origins. But even with super powers, they may not learn the truth about the violence threatening their town until it is too late. They're going to need help, and these young superheroes will soon come to see that anyone can be a hero when the situation calls for it. When it really matters, the people you grew up with can be heroic too, and the whole town will need a substantial amount of courage and help to save themselves. Now, the brothers will have to dig deep to stay a step ahead of a psychotic, ill-tempered assassin who is honor-bound on a dark mission; a crazed man obsessed with vengeance; a bank robber who can teleport; a female mastermind-and whatever else lurks in the shadows of their past. As the brothers go through their first epic adventure, they find great friends-friends they will need for the biggest battle of their young lives. The world and its future are at stake, and only Lightning Bolt and Blazer can save it.

Description : '[Williams's] plays have brought the experience of black urban youth onto the stage' Observer Sucker Punch: 'As usual with Williams, the dialogue is crisp and bespoke: motives are mixed, nobody is a hero, nothing is just black and white.' The Times Joe Guy: 'Williams's dialogue ricochets around the stage like gunfire . . . energetic, exciting and entertaining.' Stage Category B: 'Category B is a harrowing play, but one shot through with both dark humour and tentative flickers of hope'. Daily Telegraph Baby Girl: 'The shocking thing about Roy Williams's Baby Girl is that it argues that there is a cyclical pattern to teenage pregnancy . . . Williams paints a rivetingly plausible picture of a world in which mothers and daughters are sexual rivals, 'virgin' is the ultimate peer insult and the school gates are a fertile hunting ground for male predators.' Guardian There's Only One Wayne Matthews: 'Williams's writing is punchy . . . Wayne's gradual understanding of the realities of the world make this a touching coming-of-age drama.' Guardian
