Overview

Paul "Bear" Bryant, the legendary Head Football Coach at the University of Alabama from 1958-1982 continues to inspire athletes and fans. Books have been written about Bryant for the last 30 years examining this coaching legend, but never has he been examined under the microscope of leadership.

Leadership expert Pat Williams has teamed up with University of Alabama athletics executive Tommy Ford to bring to light what made Coach Bryant so successful and how you can incorporate his leadership principles into your own life.

Williams and Ford have interviewed over 200 former players, coaches and members of the media that knew Bryant well. The book uncovers never before revealed leadership insights from Bryant's leadership and coaching genius. This 200 page book is packed with riveting stories and illustrations that will appeal to leaders at all levels of society.

Football fans will love it and individuals with any leadership role will benefit immeasurably.

Vlasceanu discusses the inherent contradiction between academia on the one hand, and expectations and regulations of the market on the other. Analyses demographic and other statistical characteristics of today's higher education. Examines the financial basis of universities in various countries, and describes current governance models. Finally the author sets up a new typology of universities.

It scrutinizes the encounters between the economic actors of the "East" and the "West", the number and scope of which have dramatically increased during the past two decades. Chapters in the volume reveal how indigenous actors, that is, workers, entrepreneurs, government officials, economists, think tank analysts etc. in Central and Eastern Europe, select (accept, adjust and mix) certain cultural packages while rejecting others. Although cultural exchanges are rarely symmetric, there is little to prove that "strong Western" culture devours (civilizes) the "weak Eastern" one, or "clashes of civilizations" drive capitalist transformations in the region.

Chapters provide case studies developed in different country specific contexts as well as comparative studies in three main thematic areas: entrepreneurship, governance of economic change, and economic knowledge and thus examine a variety of producers and mediators of economic culture.
