This work is a unique collection of key articles on feminist theatre and performance form The Drama Review (TDR). Carol Martin juxtaposes theory and practice to provide an exceptionally comprehensive overview of the development of feminist theatre.
In a global economy full of multinational firms, international human resource management including expatriation, career management, and talent management is a growing topic in the business and management literature and in universities. A thorough understanding of the adjustment of expatriates to their new environment is critical not only for selection and preparation of potential expatriates, but also for the management of expatriate performance. Managed well, expatriates can be key contributors to organizational success while abroad and after repatriation. Poor understanding and management of expatriate issues, on the other hand, may lead to underperformance and increased turnover of expatriates and repatriates. This book summarizes and extends what is known about the topic of expatriate management and adjustment, covering all the major authors and presenting a new approach to the adjustment process, which provides guidance for researchers and practitioners alike.
At present, expatriate adjustment is only covered as a chapter in books on international HRM and HRD. Much of this literature relies on out-dated concepts and evidence. Furthermore, most business research and management publications use an expatriate adjustment model that was originally published about two decades ago. The field has grown significantly in terms of studies and publications, but theoretical development has been lacking. This book is the first dedicated solely to the subject of expatriate adjustment, enabling readers to formulate research questions and hypotheses and develop expatriation policies and support systems that optimize the performance of expatriates. It also provides a re-formulation of the model underlying management research about expatriate adjustment.
This new edition continues to emphasize the use of data envelopment analysis (DEA) to create optimization-based benchmarks within hospitals, physician group practices, health maintenance organizations, nursing homes and other health care delivery organizations. Suitable for graduate students learning DEA applications in health care as well as for practicing administrators, it is divided into two sections covering methods and applications. Section I considers efficiency evaluations using DEA; returns to scale; weight restricted (multiplier) models; non-oriented or slack-based models, including in this edition two versions of non-controllable variable models and categorical variable models; longitudinal (panel) evaluations and the effectiveness dimension of performance evaluation. A new chapter then looks at new and advanced models of DEA, including super-efficiency, congestion DEA, network DEA, and dynamic network models. Mathematical formulations of various DEA models are placed in end-of-chapter appendices. Section II then looks at health care applications within particular settings, chapter-by-chapter, including hospitals, physician practices, nursing homes and health maintenance organizations (HMOs). Other chapters then explore home health care and home health agencies; dialysis centers, community mental health centers, community-based your services, organ procurement organizations, aging agencies and dental providers; DEA models to evaluate provider performance for specific treatments, including stroke, mechanical ventilation and perioperative services. A new chapter then examines international-country-based applications of DEA in health care in 16 different countries, along with OECD and multi-country studies. Most of the existing chapters in this section were expanded with recent applications. Included with the book is online access to a learning version of DEA Solver software, written by Professor Kaoru Tone, which can solve up to 50 DMUs for various DEA models listed in the User's Guide at the end of the book.

A complete and up-to-date manual on HPCE theory and practice<br> <br> High Performance Capillary Electrophoresis brings together in one volume essential coverage of the theory, techniques, and applications of this highly useful and efficient technology.<br> <br> Suitable for the novice as well as the experienced user of HPCE, this book features expert contributions from highly respected scientists representing a wide range of disciplines. Chapters, which are grouped into sections to make information easy to find, cover:<br> * Theory and principles of the six HPCE techniques<br> * Detection systems, including indirect detection<br> * Essential operation topics such as sample introduction and stacking, coated capillaries, and method validation<br> * Recently developed methods, including two-dimensional separations, nonaqueous CE, and HPCE on microchips<br> * All of the basic HPCE applications, with an emphasis on bioanalytical uses<br> * HPCE in the determination of physico-chemical properties of molecules<br> <br> With features and capabilities that match--and even surpass--those of conventional electrophoresis and HPLC, high performance capillary electrophoresis (HPCE) is the fastest developing technology for the separation and analysis of chemical compounds. Keeping pace with the rapid changes in this field and the wealth of journal articles on the subject is a difficult and time-consuming challenge for anyone needing a basic and up-to-date grasp of HPCE.<br> <br> This book makes it much easier to find this important information--with comprehensive one-source coverage of all of the essential aspects of HPCE theory, techniques, and applications. Featuring the contributions of well-qualified, highly regarded scientists, it is organized into sections on:<br> * Theory and principles of HPCE techniques<br> * Detection systems<br> * Operation aspects and special methods in HPCE<br> * Uses in chemical analysis<br> * Physico-chemical studies<br> <br> Specific topics addressed here that are not treated extensively by other books include two-dimensional separations, CE on microchips, nonaqueous CE, indirect detection, monitoring enzymatic reactions, and more.<br> <br> As interest in HPCE continues to grow, it is clear that this technology has much to offer researchers and others working in disciplines ranging from analytical chemistry and biochemistry to pharmaceutical chemistry and biotechnology. High Performance Capillary Electrophoresis equips scientists and students with the knowledge they need to take immediate advantage of the exciting potential of HPCE.
