    Description / Table of Contents: Thermodynamics, Kinetics and Microphysics of Clouds presents a unified theoretical foundation that provides the basis for incorporating cloud microphysical processes in cloud and climate models. In particular, the book provides: • a theoretical basis for understanding the processes of cloud particle formation, evolution and precipitation, with emphasis on spectral cloud microphysics based on numerical and analytical solutions of the kinetic equations for the drop and crystal size spectra along with the supersaturation equation; • the latest detailed theories and parameterizations of drop and crystal nucleation suitable for cloud and climate models derived from the general principles of thermodynamics and kinetics; • a platform for advanced parameterization of clouds in weather prediction and climate models; • the scientific foundation for weather and climate modification by cloud seeding. This book will be invaluable for researchers and advanced students engaged in cloud and aerosol physics, and air pollution and climate research.

    Description / Table of Contents: As countless love songs, movies, and self-help books attest, men and women have long sought different things. The result? Seemingly inevitable conflict. Yet we belong to the most cooperative species on the planet. Isn't there a way we can use this capacity to achieve greater harmony and equality between the sexes? In The War of the Sexes, Paul Seabright argues that there is--but first we must understand how the tension between conflict and cooperation developed in our remote evolutionary past, how it shaped the modern world, and how it still holds us back, both at home and at work. 〈

    Description / Table of Contents: "Rethinking Private Authority examines the role of non-state actors in global environmental politics, arguing that a fuller understanding of their role requires a new way of conceptualizing private authority. Jessica Green identifies two distinct forms of private authority--one in which states delegate authority to private actors, and another in which entrepreneurial actors generate their own rules, persuading others to adopt them.Drawing on a wealth of empirical evidence spanning a century of environmental rule making, Green shows how the delegation of authority to private actors has played a small but consistent role in multilateral environmental agreements over the past fifty years, largely in the area of treaty implementation. This contrasts with entrepreneurial authority, where most private environmental rules have been created in the past two decades. Green traces how this dynamic and fast-growing form of private authority is becoming increasingly common in areas ranging from organic food to green building practices to sustainable tourism. She persuasively argues that the configuration of state preferences and the existing institutional landscape are paramount to explaining why private authority emerges and assumes the form that it does. In-depth cases on climate change provide evidence for her arguments.Groundbreaking in scope, Rethinking Private Authority demonstrates that authority in world politics is diffused across multiple levels and diverse actors, and it offers a more complete picture of how private actors are helping to shape our response to today's most pressing environmental problems"--

    Description / Table of Contents: Wirtschaftsethik ist im Zeitalter der Globalisierung zu einem zentralen Diskussionsthema geworden. Für dieses Lehrbuch wurde nun erstmals kein systematisch-analytischer Ansatz, sondern ein historisch-genetischer Zugang zur Wirtschaftsethik gewählt. Durch die Herausarbeitung der vielfältigen und komplexen historischen Wandlungsprozesse werden pointierend Leitbilder bzw. Paradigmen der Wirtschaftsethik vorgestellt, die über den Lauf der Geschichte das Denken und Handeln geprägt haben. Ausgehend von der Entwicklung der Horden- und Stammesmoral bis hin zur Globalisierung der letzten Jahrzehnte wird ein historischer Streifzug unternommen, bei dem der Verfasser sieben wohlunterscheidbare Paradigmen herausarbeiten kann. Die Darstellung ist ein wissenschaftlich fundierter Grundriss zu einem komplexen Themenfeld an der Schnittstelle von Ökonomik, Geschichte, Theologie und Philosophie, der bewusst interdisziplinär angelegt ist, aber aufgrund seiner verständlichen Sprache sowohl für Fachleute der verschiedenen Disziplinen als auch für akademisch Vorgebildete einen Zugang zur Geschichte der Wirtschaftsethik bietet. Prof. Dr. Bernd Noll lehrt Volkswirtschaftslehre und Wirtschaftsethik an der Hochschule Pforzheim.
