In this report, published by PEP and Sussex University's Centre for Contemporary European Studies, the authors hope that union leaderships will again be able to exercise enough authority to create a unified strategy, despite current contrary strong pressures from sections of their membership. This strategy would consist not just in overall pay restraint nor in trying to restore ‘traditional’ differentials, but in moving towards a sensible policy and machinery for distribution of pay between competing groups.

In the last four years, since Volume I of this Bibliography first appeared, there has been an explosion of literature in all the main functional areas of business. This wealth of material poses problems for the researcher in management studies — and, of course, for the librarian: uncovering what has been written in any one area is not an easy task. This volume aims to help the librarian and the researcher overcome some of the immediate problems of identification of material. It is an annotated bibliography of management, drawing on the wide variety of literature produced by MCB University Press. Over the last four years, MCB University Press has produced an extensive range of books and serial publications covering most of the established and many of the developing areas of management. This volume, in conjunction with Volume I, provides a guide to all the material published so far.
To tell the story of a particular digitisation project with which the author has been closely involved, illustrating the problems and scope of the project and focusing especially on the issues relating to the selection of appropriate content.
This paper is based largely on personal involvement in the project and is the work of a historian who traces change over time.
The paper records the history of the project and discusses what has been achieved to date, problems were encountered along the way, and what has been done to try to resolve them.
There may be lessons to be learnt from this project for similar projects in other parts of the world.
This paper is the first study of DISA to be written by a historian.

Describes a research project carried out within the Manchester Royal Infirmary (MRI) to evaluate and improve the recycling and disposal of pharmaceutical products. Discusses supply chain management practices in the National Health Service and, in particular, focuses on the concept of reverse logistics (the recycling of pharmaceutical stock for later re‐use). The research involved the analysis of returned stock from 28 hospital units and, from this data, the development and implementation of a revised recycling process within MRI Pharmacy. Concludes by arguing that there are significant financial and operational advantages to the NHS, and other organisations, in developing effective reverse logistics processes.

The International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) are playing an increasingly important role in global financial reporting. As a result, colleges are incorporating the IFRS into their business curricula. This chapter presents an interactive team project that will help students become familiar with the IFRS by critically examining IFRS adoption in the United States. Examining adoption of the IFRS from different perspectives allows students to explore the views of the various participants in the regulatory process, including investors, auditors, public, and private companies. This project encourages active collaborative learning and develops fundamental skills, including critical thinking and information literacy.

President Bill Clinton has had many opponents and enemies, most of whom come from the political right wing. Clinton supporters contend that these opponents, throughout the Clinton presidency, systematically have sought to undermine this president with the goal of bringing down his presidency and running him out of office; and that they have sought non‐electoral means to remove him from office, including Travelgate, the death of Deputy White House Counsel Vincent Foster, the Filegate controversy, and the Monica Lewinsky matter. This bibliography identifies these and other means by presenting citations about these individuals and organizations that have opposed Clinton. The bibliography is divided into five sections: General; “The conspiracy stream of conspiracy commerce”, a White House‐produced “report” presenting its view of a right‐wing conspiracy against the Clinton presidency; Funding; Conservative organizations; and Publishing/media. Many of the annotations note the links among these key players.
In order to develop a range of positive policies to support and promote equal opportunities it is important to know the current position — how many male and female members, how many members from different ethnic origins, how many disabled members, what age profile, etc.
