Ronnie Lessem and Alexander Schieffer

Ronnie Lessem and Alexander Schieffer's Integral Green Society and Economy series has three overarching aims. The first is to link together two major movements of our time, one philosophical, the other practical. The philosophical movement is towards what many today are calling an 'integral' age, while the practical is the 'green' movement, duly aligned with that of sustainable development. The second is to blend together elements of nature and community, culture and spirituality, science and technology, politics and economics, thus serving to bring about an 'integral green' vision, albeit with a focus on business and economics. As such, the authors transcend the limitations to sustainable development and environmental economics, which are overly ecological, if not also technological, in orientation, and exclude social and cultural elements. Thirdly, this particular volume, with Darja Piciga, focuses specifically on Slovenia, as well as on Europe generally, drawing on the particular issues and capacities that this country and continent represents, particularly for sustainable development and social knowledge-based economy. The emphasis on Slovenia arose, not only because it lies at the heart of Europe, but because a specific movement for an Integral Green Slovenian Society and Economy, has been co-evolved there, by the three editors in conjunction with Slovene organisations, communities and movements, with a view to integrating existing and emerging knowledge resources, initiatives and practices into a model, as an alternative to austerity, for Slovenia and other European countries.

Europe Since 1989 charts the development of Europe east and west since the 1989 revolutions. It analyses the emergent European society, the development of a European public sphere, and civil society. Most books on Europe are heavily biased to the West and Europe Since 1989 takes the opposite approach. It argues that the transformation of the postcommunist world has implications for the whole of Europe and explores the interplay between long-term fundamental tendencies and chance events and the possible futures which confront contemporary Europe.

V Zentai and J M Kovac

Does capitalism emerging in Eastern Europe need as solid ethnic or spiritual foundations as some other “Great Transformations” in the past? Apparently, one can become an actor of the new capitalist game without belonging to the German, Jewish, or, to take a timely example, Chinese minority. Nor does one have to go to a Protestant church every Sunday, repeat Confucian truisms when falling asleep, or study Adam Smith’s teachings on the virtues of the market in a business course. He/she may just follow certain quasi-capitalist routines acquired during communism and import capitalist culture (more exactly, various capitalist cultures) in the form of down-to-earth cultural practices embedded in freshly borrowed economic and political institutions. Does capitalism come from outside? Why do then so many analysts talk about hybridization?

This volume offers empirical insights into the current cultural history of the Eastern European economies in three fields: entrepreneurship, state governance and economic science. The chapters are based on large case studies prepared in the framework of an eight-country research project (funded by the European Commission, and directed jointly by the Center for Public Policy at the Central European University and the Institute for Human Sciences) on East-West cultural encounters in the ex-communist economies.

How have national identities changed, developed and reacted in the wake of transition from communism to democracy in Central and Eastern Europe? "Central Eastern Europe After Transition" defines and examines new autonomous differences adopted at the state and the supranational level in the post-transitional phase of the post-Communist area, and considers their impact on constitutions, democracy and legal culture. With representative contributions from older and newer EU members, the book provides a broad set of cultural points for reference. Its comparative and interdisciplinary approach includes a useful selection of bibliographical resources specifically devoted to the Central Eastern European countries' transitions.

Theory of postmodernization (Inglehart, R. (1997). Modernization and postmodernization: Cultural, economic, and political change in 43 societies. Princeton/Chichester: Princeton University Press; Inglehart, R., & Welzel, C. (2007). Modernization, cultural change, and democracy: The human development sequence. New York: Cambridge University Press) predicts that the public in socioeconomically more developed countries (e.g. established democracies) are more politically engaged and more pro-democratically oriented (e.g. higher levels of self-expression values) than citizens in less prosperous (e.g. post-communist) countries; and that individuals who are more non-democratically oriented are generally less political active. We tested these predictions by comparing three European regions: a group of twenty established European democracies, nine Central and Eastern European EU member states, and seven post-Yugoslav countries. The predictive power of postmodernization theory within the post-Yugoslav sample was also examined. Employing European Values Study (European Values Study. (2008) Accessed 27 Mar 2011) we cross-regionally and cross-nationally compared (1) the levels of three types of political participation (voter turnout, party membership, and protest participation); (2) the levels of non-democratic political culture (authoritarian political culture, lifestyle intolerance, and gender role traditionalism), and (3) the link between political participation and non-democratic political culture. The results indicated that post-communist citizens are less politically engaged and more non-democratically oriented than their Western counterparts, and that in all three regions “authoritarians” are less likely to be political active. A less straightforward pattern was observed in post-Yugoslav countries. Implications of the results and future research suggestions are discussed.

Kai Riewe, geboren 1974, schloss sein Studium 2000 an der Ruhr-Universität Bochum als Diplom-Ökonom ab. Anschließend war er dort als wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter tätig, zunächst im Studiengang "European Culture and Economy", später am Lehrstuhl für Internationale Wirtschaftsbeziehungen. Seit 2006 ist er wissenschaftlicher Dozent für Volkswirtschaftslehre an der Privaten Universität Witten/Herdecke. Mit der vorliegenden Arbeit promovierte er 2010 an der Ruhr-Universität zum Dr. rer. oec. Die gesellschaftliche Einbettung wirtschaftlicher Prozesse wird in volkswirtschaftlichen Untersuchungen oft nur unzureichend berücksichtigt. Die vorliegende Arbeit greift das in Soziologie und Politikwissenschaft entwickelte Forschungsprogramm "Sozialkapital" für eine Analyse aus wirtschaftswissenschaftlicher Perspektive auf: Für die zentralen Bestandteile sozialen Kapitals - Netzwerke und Vertrauen - wird untersucht, welche einzel- und gesamtwirtschaftlichen Wirkungen von diesen gesellschaftlichen Phänomenen ausgehen und welchen Beitrag die Ökonomie zu deren Erklärung leistet. Gezeigt wird, dass über das Sozialkapitalkonzept eine ökonomische Annäherung an gesellschaftliche Eigenschaften gelingt. Das Konzept bietet sich als überbrückender Ansatz zwischen den Gesellschaftswissenschaften an: In der Volkswirtschaftslehre ausgeblendete gesellschaftliche Eigenschaften werden durch die Analyse sozialen Kapitals betont. Umgekehrt kann das ökonomische Instrumentarium die Erklärung sozialen Kapitals bereichern. Deutlich wird aber auch, dass Sozialkapital nicht zwangsweise mit gesamtwirtschaftlich superioren Ergebnissen einhergeht. Das Beispiel der Russischen Förderation belegt, dass ausgeprägte Netzwerke den institutionellen Transformationsprozess bremsen. Gleichzeitig verlangsamt fehlendes gesellschaftliches Vertrauen die wirtschaftliche Entwicklung.

Mobile phones have been diffusing worldwide at an astonishing rate. They provide individuals with unprecedented connectivity to information and inter-personal interaction, and thus are expected to enhance social capital. This paper sets out to present an investigation focusing on the impact of mobile phone use on individual social capital. Based on the case studies conducted in Australia and South Korea, we find that mobile communications, facilitated by mobility and portability of mobile computing, can have a positive impact on individual social capital and the degree of the impact largely depends on an individual's mobile phone use pattern. We then discuss the implications of the study and make suggestions for future research.

Gender Knowledge and Knowledge Networks in International Political Economy, B Young, C Scherrer (Eds.)

This collection explores the apparent gender neutrality of knowledge generation and dissemination through knowledge networks in the various subfields of international political economy. The contributions present the gender knowledge concept, which starts from the assumption that every form of knowledge is based upon a specific form of gender knowledge. That knowledge is power and that traditional knowledge has been constructed in the interests of the powerful has been a critique of contemporary feminist scholarship from the start. The individual contributions in the book address not so much the gendered effects of different policies, but rather the imprint that "gender knowledge" leaves both on the academic knowledge justifying and underpinning the policies, and normative assumptions of the policy community. Focusing on gender knowledge as a research agenda is all the more important, since, at the Lisbon summit of the EU Council in 2000, it was agreed to make the EU 'globally the most competitive knowledge-based economy' by 2010. The key question is: What is the epistemic and philosophical foundation of the knowledge economy and through what channels and networks is the scientific knowledge disseminated? Who decides what knowledge is, where the knowledge is produced, and who are the knowledge producers.

Comparative perspectives on civil society, R A Dibie (ed.)
The book examines the relationship between civil society and government in many countries and how this association might develop further in the areas of social, economic and political development. Several experts explore the environment of this relationship, the strategies adopted by national and regional governments to influence the behavior of civil society organizations, as well as public policies that guide the parties toward achieving sustainable development.

Conseptualising employment and volunteering as two distinct forms of social inclusion, Susanne Straußanalyses their interrelations in Germany and Great Britain. On the basis of household panel data, she answers questions such as: Does job loss lead people to give up their volunteer work? Or do people who have lost their job keep up their voluhteering activities to use them as an alternative source of social recognition? Does volunteering help with finding a new job? By compaing the situation in two different countries, the author stresses that differences in labour market institutions lead to distinct answers. Moreover, the study points to variations with respect to gender, education and the type of volunteering organisations.

Visegrad votes: parliamentary elections 2005-2006, P Saradin, E Bradova (ed)
The 2005-2006 elections in the Visegrad countries have come over a decade and a half following the revolutionary transitions from communism that occurred in the
late 1980s. They thus represent an opportunity for scholars to reflect on the extent to which party and electoral systems have been consolidated in the region, and to evaluate a range of indicators of democratic development.

I Svetlik, B Ilič

The book seeks answers to the question: how has Human Resource Management contributed and how could it have contributed to the development of organisations and economy? Based on theories and literature review each contribution compares HRM practices of several thousand European middle and large organisations, with a special focus on Slovenia, one of the new EU member states, which has successfully managed its transition to market economy. The analyses reveal how strategic the role of HRM in organisations is, how it balances between hard and smart work and between more or less friendly forms of work and employment flexibility. Critical observations of traditional managerial practices, including autocratic and non-participative leadership, which have impacts not only on the organisations but also on wider society, are made. The position of youth is particularly accentuated. Clear differences in these respects have been observed in the wider European area. Recommendations for managers on how their organisations and HRM should be shaped on the way to the knowledge economy are elaborated.
