Europe as a Stronger Global Actor Book Review:

This book considers the principal challenges facing the European Union, which has been buffeted by a series of profound crises, both internal and external. These range from the future of Ukraine, the Union’s reactions to China’s ‘One Belt, One Road’ initiative, how to help stabilize countries to its south, and relations with the United States. The core argument is that the EU lacks a meta-narrative that could indicate priorities and linkages between the various continental, regional, national and thematic strategies. As a result, the EU often appears to be a confusing and even contradictory actor to many international partners. In response to these challenges the EU needs to develop a deeper sense of strategic awareness and confidence so that it may give a more convincing response to fundamental questions about the Union’s role, purpose and identity in a changing world.

Strategic Responses to the Kyoto Accord and the Effects on Organizational Context Book Review:

This paper studier the various strategies adopted by five oil-and-gas companies in Canada in response to the problem of climate change and the ratification of the Kyoto Accord. These strategies were studied by conducting face-to-face and follow-up phone interviews with various individuals from five companies in Canada's oil-and-gas sector. Each interview centred around the following issues: the company's view of change, available organizational slack, managerial response to uncertainty, the perceived complexity of both climate change and the Kyoto Accord, the perception of loss versus gain and threat versus opportunity, the identification of the major players within climate change, and stakeholder analysis. Firms in the canadian oil-and-gas sector are faced with increasing challenges in the form of climate-change regulation and sustainable strategic challenges. Drawing upon sustainable-strategy literature and the Resource-Based View (RBV) of the firm, this paper explores and discusses the strategies taken by three distinct groups within this sector. The three groups discussed will be Proactive, Reactive, and a new group, Transitional. Each of the firms within a group has many items in common with its peers, and these similarities set them apart from the firms in the other groups. The study provides evidence that each of the groups of firms reacted to the changes in challenges of climate change differently. Each firm within a grouping attempted to overcome the challenges and changes in a fashion similar to its peers within its particluar grouping. The study concluded that the Proactive firms are building a sustainable strategic advantage by being proactive and realizing that the change is creating opportunities for them within their sector and the economy as a whole. Furthermore, it was found that all of the companies, regardless of the current strategies being pursued, were increasing their proactiveness in an attempt to build competitive advantages in their industry.

Strategic Responses to Domestic Contestation Book Review:

How have EU-level actors responded to the increase in salience and contestation across the member states? This volume explores and explains the actors’ strategic responses and emphasises that domestic pressure has triggered both depoliticisation and politicisation. Long gone are the times when EU decisions left citizens indifferent, and when the supranational was largely irrelevant for public opinion and electoral politics across the member states. Instead, a string of existential crises has struck and unsettled the Union over more than a decade. These crises have politicised Europe, tested the endurance of the supranational system to its core, and put EU-level actors under unprecedented pressure. This volume explores how and why EU-level actors respond to the various, sometimes competing, ‘bottom-up’ demands, and challenges the view that domestic contestation necessarily limits EU-level room for manoeuvre. Instead, contributions show that domestic pressure can be perceived as either constraining or enabling, with responses, therefore, ranging from the restrained to the assertive. Driven by the survival of the Union, by the preservation of their own powers, and by different perceptions of domestic demands, actors will choose to politicise or depoliticise decision-making, behaviour, and policy outcomes at the supranational level. The volume concludes that whilst domestic pressure triggers supranational responses, such responses should not be assumed to be restraining; they may equally be empowering including for European integration itself. The chapters in this book were originally published as a special issue of the Journal of European Public Policy.

Commoditization and the Strategic Response Book Review:

Organizations and those who work within them are under attack from the increasingly pervasive impacts of commoditization. With little to distinguish one company's products and services from another or one person's skills and capabilities from the next, organizations and workers alike are finding themselves trapped in the me-too hell of commoditization. For many this means the survival of the cheapest, as price becomes the principal basis for decision making. For others it requires them to think creatively to avoid the trap of commoditization, even though this may only provide a temporary respite. In this groundbreaking book, Andrew Holmes sets out why commoditization represents such a clear and present danger to every corporation and all white-collar workers. Starting with the nature of the commodities we are familiar with such as coal and cotton, Holmes moves on to describe how commoditization is affecting entire industries and is increasingly touching the work of the professional classes. The evidence is both fascinating and compelling and it is clear that the impacts of commoditization are far reaching. The author also outlines the impact of commoditization on an organization's strategy towards brand, supply chain, value chain, innovation, pricing and competition. He explores the implications for skills, attitudes and behaviours in the workplace before describing a series of strategies for avoiding the risk and exploiting the opportunities offered by a new commoditized world, such as outsourcing, innovation, offshoring, mergers and acquisitions, divestments and first mover advantage. Holmes offers organizations and white-collar workers a range of strategic responses which can be used to combat its worst impacts. And as commoditization continues to make inroads into the corporate and working worlds, this book will be an invaluable companion to addressing the challenges which it presents.

Life Insurance In India Book Review:

This first-of-its-kind book reflects on life insurance in the current context of globalization and economic reforms and traces the interdependence of life insurance and macro economic factors. It focuses on structural change, market potential and emerging challenges for the Indian Life Insurance industry and also covers the global life insurance industry, regulatory regime, and market friendly practices abroad. Thus it provides a powerful insight into emerging trends in the Life Insurance industry as a whole. Life Insurance in India: Opportunities, Challenges and Strategic Perspective presents a detailed analysis of several strategic and managerial issues such as product-market relationship, distribution, marketing strategies and funds management and focuses specially on the changing contours of risk management in life insurance. Primary concerns for the post-liberalized industry like structural changes in economy and financial sectors, information explosion, need for competitive management efficiency, etc., have been discussed with suggestive guidelines. A supplement on analysis of macro economic indicators and their impact on stock market investment make this book a ready manual for any practicing manager. Apart from the general reader, it will also be very useful for regulators and students of Insurance Management and training programmes of Life Insurance companies.
