Fremd in ihrem Land

Author: Arlie Russell Hochschild
Publisher: Campus Verlag

Release Date: 2017-09-07
Genre: Political Science

In vielen westlichen Ländern sind rechte, nationalistische Bewegungen auf dem Vormarsch. Wie ist es dazu gekommen? Arlie Russell Hochschild reiste ins Herz der amerikanischen Rechten, nach Louisiana, und suchte fünf Jahre lang das Gespräch mit ihren Landsleuten. Sie traf auf frustrierte Menschen, deren "Amerikanischer Traum" geplatzt ist; Menschen, die sich abgehängt fühlen, den Staat hassen und sich der rechtspopulistischen Tea-Party-Bewegung angeschlossen haben. Hochschild zeigt eine beunruhigende Entwicklung auf, die auch in Europa längst begonnen hat. Hochschilds Reportage ist nicht nur eine erhellende Deutung einer gespaltenen Gesellschaft, sondern auch ein bewegendes Stück Literatur. "Jeder, der das moderne Amerika verstehen möchte, sollte dieses faszinierende Buch lesen." Robert Reich "Ein kluges, respektvolles und fesselndes Buch." New York Times Book Review "Eine anrührende, warmherzige und souverän geschriebene, ungemein gut lesbare teilnehmende Beobachtung. ... Wer ihr Buch liest, versteht die Wähler Trumps, weil sie auf Augenhöhe mit ihnen und nicht über sie spricht." FAZ

Fuzzy Modelle in der Unternehmensplanung

Author: Wolfgang Hauke
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783642589928
Release Date: 2013-03-07
Genre: Business & Economics

Planungstätigkeiten in Unternehmen sind häufig durch unscharfe Begriffsbildungen wie "nahezu ausgelastet" oder "umweltschonende Produktion" etc. charakterisiert. Das vorrangige Ziel des Buchs besteht darin, diese Unschärfen als gegeben zu akzeptieren und Modelle zur Beschreibung dieser Unschärfen in realen Planungsproblemen zu kategorisieren, darzustellen und zu erweitern. Es zeigt sich, daß unscharfe entscheidungsunterstützende Modelle gegenüber konventionellen Planungsmodellen realistischere Abbildungen des realen Problems zulassen. Entscheidungsträger können vermehrt in den Lösungsprozeß einbezogen werden, wodurch die Vorteile interaktiver Verfahren zum Tragen kommen.
