Common misconceptions about Japan begin with the notion that it is a “small” country (it's actually lager than Great Britain, Germany or Italy) and end with pronouncements that the Japanese think differently and have different values-they do things differently because that's the way they are. Steven Reed takes on the task of demystifying Japanese culture and behavior. Through examples that are familiar to an American audience and his own personal encounters with the Japanese, he argues that the apparent oddity of Japanese behavior flows quite naturally from certain objective conditions that are different from those in the United States. Mystical allegations about national character are less useful for understanding a foreign culture than a close look at specific situations and conditions. Two aspects of the Japanese economy have particularly baffled Americans: that Japanese workers have “permanent employment” and that the Japanese government cooperates with big business. Reed explains these phenomena in common sense terms. He shows how they developed historically, why they continue, and why they helped produce economic growth. He concludes that these practices are not as different from what happens in the United States as they may appear.

What does it mean when a judge in a court of law uses the phrase “common sense”? Is it a type of evidence or a mode of reasoning? In a world characterized by material and political inequalities, whose common sense should inform the law? Common Sense and Legal Judgment explores this rhetorically powerful phrase, arguing that common sense, when invoked in political and legal discourses without adequate reflection, poses a threat to the quality and legitimacy of legal judgment. Often operating in the service of conservatism, populism, or majoritarianism, common sense can harbour stereotypes, reproduce unjust power relations, and silence marginalized people. Nevertheless, drawing the works of theorists such as Thomas Reid, Antonio Gramsci, and Hannah Arendt into conversation with rulings by the Supreme Court of Canada, Patricia Cochran demonstrates that with careful attention, the democratic, egalitarian, and community-sustaining aspects of common sense can be brought to light. A call for critical self-reflection and the close scrutiny of power relationships and social contexts, this book is a direct response to social justice predicaments and their confounding relationships to law. Creative and interdisciplinary, Common Sense and Legal Judgment reinvigorates feminist and anti-poverty understandings of judgment, knowledge, justice, and accountability.

School change can be rough around the edges and extremely difficult and contentious in the beginning, especially if it is not initiated in the correct manner. Whether the transition to change is very rough or very smooth, if you can survive the initial implementation and the actual process that follows, the end can be a hugely successful and beautiful thing.

From Aristotle to Thomas Jefferson, seminal thinkers have declared “common sense” essential for moral discernment and civilized living. Yet the story of commonsense philosophy is not well known today. In America and the Political Philosophy of Common Sense, Scott Segrest traces the history and explores the personal and social meaning of common sense as understood especially in American thought and as reflected specifically in the writings of three paradigmatic thinkers: John Witherspoon, James McCosh, and William James. The first two represent Scottish Common Sense and the third, Pragmatism, the schools that together dominated American higher thought for nearly two centuries. Educated Americans of the founding period warmly received Scottish Common Sense, Segrest writes, because it reflected so well what they already thought, and he uncovers the basic elements of American common sense in examining the thought of Witherspoon, who introduced that philosophy to them. With McCosh, he shows the furthest development and limits of the philosophy, and with it of American common sense in its Scottish realist phase. With James, he shows other dimensions of common sense that Americans had long embraced but that had never been examined philosophically. Clearly, Segrest’s work is much more than an intellectual history. It is a study of the American mind and of common sense itself—its essential character and its human significance, both moral and political. It was common sense, he affirms, that underlay the Declaration of Independence and the founders’ ideas of right and obligation that are still with us today. Segrest suggests that understanding this foundation and James’s refreshing of it could be the key to maintaining America’s vital moral core against a growing alienation from common sense across the Western world. Stressing the urgency of understanding and preserving common sense, Segrest’s work sheds new light on an undervalued aspect of American thought and experience, helping us to perceive the ramifications of commonsense philosophy for dignified living.

As the series editor, M. Afalur Rahim points out with justifiable pride, for the past fourteen years Current Topics in Management has provided high quality research and theory on management concerns at the international as well as national levels, and done so through with respect for the universality, collegiality and need for broad involvement. The present volume continues and expands on that tradition, and is predicated on the need for high level interactions between human motivation and organiational performance. While each essay is unique and can stand alone, the volume demonstrates a linkage in four major sections: organiational behavior and performance; strategy, structure, and performance; cognition, common sense, and effectiveness; and entrepreneurship as a whole. This makes possible a unique title for the volume as a whole: Organiational Behavior, Performance, and Effectiveness. This volume takes on innovative dimensions in its own right: the relationship between competence, performance and longevity in issues of social support networks and organiational turnover, the issue of competence destroying technologies that are engulfed by uncertainty, firm performance and cognitive differentiation of tasks, management premises and cellular organiations - both past and present, and wider issues of cognition in the performance of tasks and the design of enterprises. This is in short,a cutting edge volume of potential wide use and interest in a variety of public and private managerial situations. M. Afalur Rahim is the founding editor of the International Journal of Organiational Analysis and International Journal of Conflict Management, author of twenty books and numerous journal articles, and is a University Distinguished Professor at Western Kentucky University.

This engaging book presents an intriguing new approach to understanding world affairs. "Constructivism" first found its way to IR -- the field of international relations -- in an exceptionally demanding form. This book is quite the opposite. In a highly readable and witty way, Commonsense Constructivism, or the Making of World Affairs, makes clear how everything around us (IR included) is constructed. In the process, it also shows how narrow the standard IR approaches are, and how much we miss as a consequence. Ralph Pettman's conceptual framework of state-making, wealth-making, self-making, and mind-making allows us to see such notions as "globalization" in a revealing new light. This work is intended to be fully accessible to students, but it will be welcomed by anyone who has been mystified by constructivism -- or who simply wants to better understand the ways we understand our world. CONTENTS INTRODUCTION: Commonsense Constructivism 1. Making World Affairs I. THE NEGLECTED ASPECTS OF THE DISCIPLINE 2. Making Modernity 3. Making Sovereign Selves, Social Collectives, and Nations II. THE DOMINANT ASPECTS OF THE DISCIPLINE 4. Making States and Making Markets CONCLUSION: A Constructed World

This is the second poker book by Mormon. Following a year of playing after publishing his first, he feels that he has gained enough information and experience to warrant a second. He is a self-proclaimed lover of the game of Texas Holdem. In his own words, Im only sorry that I didnt begin playing Holdem until I was almost 60. I somewhat pessimistically calculate that this leaves me only 50 years or so to play and improve my game. Now it may be that Holdem is played in the hereafter. If it is played only in Hell, Im probably in good shape. If, on the other hand, its only played in Heaven I need to get my act together.
