»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

In the instinct to survive those who are able to dominate the competition go about their activities as if others (humans and non-humans) did not matter or did not have interests. Selfishness becomes more prevalent as a people move from elementary economic systems to modern economic systems. The major reason why economic systems collapse is human selfishness. Despite all the achievements in science and technology, there are still poor people in the world and environmental cataclysms have become daily occurrences. This is because the would-be agents of development, such as Multinational Corporations and states, are largely motivated by selfishness. Unfortunately, poor economies pursue development using borrowed models formulated for selfish reasons. Needless to say, the solution to current economic and environmental challenges does not lie in abstract economic jargon or more advanced technological machinery but in taming the evil of human selfishness. This book makes a strong case for a vaccine against the virus of selfishness, namely, education for altruistic egoism.

White Out brings together the original work of leading scholars across the disciplines of sociology, philosophy, history, and anthropology to give readers an important and cutting-edge study of "whiteness".

Die Bedeutung einer nachhaltigen Unternehmensführung für den langfristigen Markterfolg hat in den vergangenen Jahren deutlich zugenommen. In diesem Zusammenhang sind geeignete Mitarbeiter, die die Vereinbarkeit ökologischer, ökonomischer und sozialer Aspekte als wichtig empfinden, sog. Nachhaltigkeitstalente, von besonderem Interesse. Auf der Basis einer verhaltenstheoretischen Analyse untersucht Kai Weinrich das Arbeitgeberwahlverhalten von Nachwuchsführungskräften unter besonderer Berücksichtigung der Ausprägung von individuellen Wertvorstellungen im Bereich der Nachhaltigkeit. Er zeigt auf, welche Ansatzpunkte dies für das Employer Branding bietet, und leitet konkrete Empfehlungen für die zielgruppenspezifische Ansprache von Nachwuchskräften und die Professionalisierung des Employer Brandings ab.​

Soziologische Phantasie, die erstmals 1963 erschienene deutsche Übersetzung von C. Wright Mills‘ The Sociological Imagination, darf zurecht als Meilenstein wissenschaftlich-politischer Debatten in den Vereinigten Staaten betrachtet werden und zählt auch heute noch zu einer der wichtigsten Selbstkritiken der Soziologie. Mills schlägt hier einen dritten Weg zwischen bloßem Empirismus und abgehobener Theorie ein: Er plädiert für eine kritische Sozialwissenschaft, die sich weder bürokratisch instrumentalisieren lässt noch selbstverliebt vor sich hin prozessiert, sondern gesellschaftliche Bedeutung erlangt, indem sie den Zusammenhang von persönlichen Schwierigkeiten und öffentlichen Problemen erhellt. Eben dies sei Aufgabe und Verheißung einer Soziologie, die sich viel zu häufig „einer merkwürdigen Lust an der Attitüde des Unbeteiligten“ hingebe.

Changes in the demographic structure of the modern workforce and strategies for increasingly globalized business are resulting in a multitude of questions about cultural diversity and its management within organizations. "Cultural Diversity Management in Organizations" focuses on the status quo of empirical and theoretical research within the demesne of cultural diversity management, providing a topical insight into research in that field, describing the consequences of Diversity for organizations and the psychological variables targeted in cultural diversity management initiatives, and highlighting the possibility of influencing individual-level psychological variables to produce beneficial organizational outcomes.
