"Investment in infrastructure is critical to economic growth, quality of life, poverty reduction, access to education, good quality healthcare and achieving many of the goals of a robust and dynamic economy But infrastructure is difficult for the public sector to get right. The private sector (through public-private-participation - PPP) can help; it can provide more efficient procurement (cheaper, faster and better quality), refocus infrastructure services on consumer satisfaction and life cycle maintenance, place the financial burden of providing infrastructure on consumers rather than taxpayers and provide new sources of investment, in particular through limited recourse debt (aka project financing). But PPP presents challenges of its own. This book provides a practical guide to PPP, how governments can enable and encourage PPP, how PPP financing works, what PPP contractual structures look like and most importantly how PPP risk allocation works in practice, including specific discussion of each infrastructure sector."--BOOK JACKET.

Knoke and Yang'sasecond edition ofaSocial Network Analysis expalnds on the 1982 editiona and adds new basic social network developments of the pastatwenty-five years.aThis topicahas grown increasingly popularaand the recent advancements made since the last edition call for an update.aThe authors provide a general overview of fundamental theoretical and methodological topics, with coverage in greater depth of selected issues.aaThe text will cover various issues in basic network concepts, data collection, and network analytical methodology. It afrequently illustrate applications of concepts and methods to substantive social network research problems, drawing examples ranging from childrenA s play groups to organizations, communities, and international systems.a Real and artificial example datasets are made available to readers for their secondary analyses.a The text's clear and informal approach will appeal to bothastudents and professionals. Moreover, Social Network Analysis cover ground that other QASS titles do not, and will be a valuable addition to this series.

This work brings together emerging perspectives from organization theory and management, environmental sociology, international regime studies, and the social studies of science and technology to provide a starting point for discipline-based studies of environmental policy and corporate environmental behaviour. The text has a theoretical and empirical focus, designed for a two-fold audience - organizational scholars working within the institutional tradition, and environmental scholars interested in management and policy. Together this mix should form a creative synthesis for both sets of readers, analyzing how environmental policy and organizational practices are shaped, spread and contested.

Social network analysis is used widely in the social and behavioral sciences, as well as in economics, marketing, and industrial engineering. The social network perspective focuses on relationships among social entities and is an important addition to standard social and behavioral research, which is primarily concerned with attributes of the social units. Social Network Analysis: Methods and Applications reviews and discusses methods for the analysis of social networks with a focus on applications of these methods to many substantive examples. It is a reference book that can be used by those who want a comprehensive review of network methods, or by researchers who have gathered network data and want to find the most appropriate method by which to analyze it. It is also intended for use as a textbook as it is the first book to provide comprehensive coverage of the methodology and applications of the field.
