Crisis Management Strategy, first published in 1993, is an excellent introduction to the theory and practice of crisis management in modern enterprises. Simon Booth examines the conventional approaches followed by many firms in the face of change and crisis. He warns of the dangers of theories which oversimplify the causes of crisis and their possible solutions, and which overlook the individual nature of each firm and its environment. Instead, a dynamic new vision of crisis management is offered, which takes into account different kinds of crisis demanding diverse solutions. The key role of leadership is also evaluated in relation to both internally and externally generated crises.
Drawing on case studies of leading firms facing crisis solutions in a variety of environments, this truly international volume will provide valuable insight into the experience of crisis, risk and uncertainty. This title will be of interest to students of business.
A major contribution to the environmental policy debate, this is the first book to examine the legal, technical, and planning initiatives employed in Europe to avoid land disposal of toxic waste. Although largely ignored in the U.S. until now, safer alternatives to land disposal exist in Europe. By studying and implementing the best of these methods, the authors argue, the United States can begin to resolve its own toxic waste problem, a problem that has reached crisis proportions.
There is little written about a comprehensive school/community approach to crisis prevention, intervention, and management. This book discusses steps helping professionals should take in order to prepare for a crisis in their schools and community. The author introduces a Crisis Management Plan, which discusses ways to restore a school/community to its pre-crisis equilibrium. The Crisis Management Plan includes steps to be taken to prevent panic and a referral network for students and their families in need of services. The author also includes information on how schools should talk to media personnel and parents in times of a crisis. She includes checklists, assessment instruments, and sample documentation forms that can be used in times of a crisis.
Moss offers a radically new interpretation of the European Community and Monetary Union as a neo-liberal project. The book places EC development in the context of the post-war long wave, labor mobilization and political class conflict, stressing its role as a Hayekian federation or dike to dampen growth and defeat inflationary working-class demands. The assessment is sustained by a study of EC origins, constitution and policies, econometric evidence, a critique of existing literature and member-state case studies.
