The Art of Strategy
13,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Game theory means rigorous strategic thinking. It´s the art of anticipating your opponent´s next moves, knowing full well that your rival is trying to do the same thing to you. Though parts of game theory involve simple common sense, much is counterintuitive, and it can only be mastered by developing a new way of seeing the world. Using a diverse array of rich case studies-from pop culture, TV, movies, sports, politics, and history-the authors show how nearly every business and personal interaction has a game-theory component to it. Mastering game theory will make you more successful in business and life, and this lively book is the key to that mastery.

Taking Aim at Attack Advertising: Understanding...

Negative campaigning is a central component of political campaigns in the United States. Yet, until now, most evidence has suggested that negative campaigning has little effect on voters. How can we reconcile the findings of a plethora of empirical studies with the methods of political elites? This book cuts through to the central issue: how such advertising influences voters´ attitudes and their actions during campaigns. Focusing on U.S. senatorial campaigns, Kim Fridkin and Patrick Kenney draw from surveys, experiments, facial expression emotion tests, content analyses, and focus groups. They develop the ´´tolerance and tactics theory of negativity´´ and demonstrate the divergent effects of tone and content on voter outcomes. Using their new framework, they find that harsh messages seen as relevant to the opponent´s ability to govern are indeed likely to be noticed and acted upon.

Full Spectrum Resistance, Volume Two: Actions a...
16,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A thorough history of and guide to resistance movements for those who want REAL change and are tired of simply marching and calling their representatives. The more than fifty resistance movements and sub-movements featured here make this the radical´s guide to restoring our rights, saving our planet, and creating lasting change. From mid-nineteenth century Chinese rebellions against colonial exploitation and ecological disasters to the Grassy Narrows´ fight against mercury poisoning and colonialism to the Stonewall riots and parades for LGBT rights to Black Lives Matter, Full Spectrum Resistance´s two volumes are some of the only books on activism that actually cover RESISTANCE, not just passive, risk-averse modes of activism. Author, activist, and farmer Aric McBay provides in-depth histories and case studies of social justice and environmental movements, both radical and liberal, to explain why passive resistance alone cannot work, and why we must be prepared to do whatever it takes to truly create change. Volume 1 of Full Spectrum Resistance taught us how to build an effective movement. In Volume 2: Actions and Strategies for Change, we learn how groups like the Greek Resisters of the 2008 Greek Television Takeover communicated and stayed connected so they could spread their message, coordinate with allies, and navigate their relationship with mass media. How organizations gather the intelligence and information they need to make smart decisions and understand their adversary´s weak points. How movements hamper their opponent´s attempts to gather information about them, and how they cope with attacks on their movement through secret disruption or overt repression (COINTELPRO, 1971). How groups raise money, support themselves, and organize the fundamental logistics that underpin any long-term struggle. How movements--such as Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty--take effective action and choose tactics; and principles that guide successful strategy and allow movements to integrate the different capacities discussed throughout the two volumes. We might be losing now, but with the right strategies and dedication there is still time and opportunity to win!

This book investigates the politics of transatlantic trade, specifically the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership negotiations. Using a novel approach, the authors analyze the rhetorical choices made by opponents and supporters of an agreement, and the logical behind their arguments. Opponents used emotive frames and strategically chosen issues to increase public opposition to the negotiations; supporters countered, but also accommodated, parts of opponents´ rhetoric in hopes of quelling discontent. The study also highlights the resulting changes to EU trade policy, thus contributing to the literatures on trade policy, politicization, and rhetorical analysis.
