Jones and George are dedicated to the challenge of "Making It Real" for students. As a team, they are uniquely qualified to write about the organizational challenges facing today's managers. No other author team in the management discipline matches their combined research and text-writing experience. Essentials of Management concisely surveys current management theories and research. Through a variety of real world examples from small, medium, and large companies the reader learns how those ideas are used by practicing managers. The organization of this text follows the mainstream functional approach of planning, organizing, leading, and controlling; but the content is flexible and encourages instructors to use the organization they are most comfortable with. The themes of diversity, ethics, and information technology are clearly evident through in-text examples, photographs, "unboxed" stories, and the end-of-chapter material - all areas of importance that truly serve to bring to life the workplace realities that today's student will encounter in the course of a career.

This reader-friendly book attempts to comprehend all the scattered and diverse understandings of Contemporary Management Thought in a systematic and structured manner into a nutshell. It will enable the reader to take a leap jump to the current frontiers of the turbulent and dynamic business world today. The first chapter comprises an in-depth analysis of the four parameters that govern modern business; Uncertainty, Ambiguity, Paradox and Chaos. Despite the fact that business executives fear and resent to deal with such realities, exponential financial gains can be made within very short periods by exploring the enormous business potential and emerging opportunities associated with them. The second chapter deals with the significance of knowledge in modern management with numerous value additions, supplemented by examples. The third chapter on Paradigms, a buzzword in modern management, encapsulates all the existing concepts with a new philosophical interpretation. Also, it highlights the missed opportunities owing to paradigm shifts and paradigm blindness and the need to redefine the corporate mission from an end-use perspective, rather than from the conventional end-user perspective. The fourth chapter identifies a global process error and summarizes the entire industrial revolution from a strategy evolution and transformation perspective.

This book is a comprehensive, state of the art guide to the contemporary non-surgical treatment of temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) that will help to compensate for the frequent lack of experience and inadequate training among health professionals who encounter patients with jaw joint problems. After an opening section outlining special considerations relating to bruxism and trauma in TMDs, medical management and dental treatment are explained in detail, with coverage of various perspectives such as those of the orthodontist and prosthodontist. Psychiatric considerations and adjunctive therapies are also thoroughly discussed and the importance of a team approach to the management of temporomandibular disorders is highlighted. Complementary volumes are devoted to anatomy, pathophysiology, evaluation, and diagnosis and to total temporomandibular joint replacement and other surgical procedures, respectively. Each book will therefore be of high value for the multidisciplinary team necessary for successful management of TMDs, including dentists, surgeons, primary care doctors, pain doctors, and allied health professionals.

The development of intracranial metastatic disease (IMD) complicates the course of 20% of patients with cancer. Despite improvements in patient survival with more aggressive treatment options as compared to the prior standard of palliative whole brain radiation, outcomes for patients who develop IMD remain dispiriting. There is need to celebrate our advances; but a major collaborative multidisciplinary effort is needed to push the field to achieve more meaningful survival benefits for our patients with IMD. In this Research Topic collection, we have assembled work detailing the latest innovations in brain metastases imaging and management, spanning from minimally invasive surgery to immunotherapy. We hope that you find it a valuable resource.
