Au travers de son expérience, l’auteur a observé que les dispositions relatives aux travailleurs pluriactifs sont utilisées sans réellement qu'une différence soit faite avec les autres règles relatives à la détermination de la législation de sécurité sociale applicable. Cet ouvrage rappelle l'évolution des dispositions relatives aux travailleurs pluriactifs, au travers des cas rencontrés dans la jurisprudence de la Cour de justice en matière de libre circulation des travailleurs et des personnes. Sa lecture permet de comprendre de manière simple et pédagogique le fonctionnement des règles en matière de détermination de la législation applicable. Au travers d'une analyse critique, son auteur souligne des différences entre la conception jurisprudentielle et la conception retenue par les institutions administratives en matière de sécurité sociale. Enfin, cet ouvrage vise aussi à rappeler l'objectif de simplification des règles en matière de détermination de la législation de sécurité sociale applicable dans l'intérêt des travailleurs et des personnes.

Over the past several decades, the field of Jewish studies has expanded to encompass an unprecedented range of research topics, historical periods, geographic regions, and analytical approaches. Yet there have been few systematic efforts to trace these developments, to consider their implications, and to generate new concepts appropriate to a more inclusive view of Jewish culture and society. Jewish Studies at the Crossroads of Anthropology and History brings together scholars in anthropology, history, religious studies, comparative literature, and other fields to chart new directions in Jewish studies across the disciplines. This groundbreaking volume explores forms of Jewish experience that span the period from antiquity to the present and encompass a wide range of textual, ritual, spatial, and visual materials. The essays give full consideration to non-written expressions of ritual performance, artistic production, spoken narrative, and social experience through which Jewish life emerges. More than simply contributing to an appreciation of Jewish diversity, the contributors devote their attention to three key concepts—authority, diaspora, and tradition—that have long been central to the study of Jews and Judaism. Moving beyond inherited approaches and conventional academic boundaries, the volume reconsiders these core concepts, reorienting our understanding of the dynamic relationships between text and practice, and continuity and change in Jewish contexts. More broadly, this volume furthers conversation across the disciplines by using Judaic studies to provoke inquiry into theoretical problems in a range of other areas.

Connecting Europe, Asia, and Africa, the Mediterranean Sea has been for millennia the place where religions, economies, and political systems met, clashed, influenced and absorbed one another. In this brilliant and expansive book, David Abulafia offers a fresh perspective by focusing on the sea itself: its practical importance for transport and sustenance; its dynamic role in the rise and fall of empires; and the remarkable cast of characters-sailors, merchants, migrants, pirates, pilgrims-who have crossed and re-crossed it. Ranging from prehistory to the 21st century, The Great Sea is above all a history of human interaction. Interweaving major political and naval developments with the ebb and flow of trade, Abulafia explores how commercial competition in the Mediterranean created both rivalries and partnerships, with merchants acting as intermediaries between cultures, trading goods that were as exotic on one side of the sea as they were commonplace on the other. He stresses the remarkable ability of Mediterranean cultures to uphold the civilizing ideal of convivencia, "living together." Now available in paperback, The Great Sea is the definitive account of perhaps the most vibrant theater of human interaction in history.

Microfinance is defined as the financial services offered to the poor for the purpose of promoting small-scale enterprises, and as such it is one of the most important topics in development studies and a burgeoning area in economics. This volume provides a much-needed historical, political and economic dimension to the current knowledge on microfinance. Collectively, the contributors chart the relationship between the prevailing popularity of microfinance and the consolidation of neoliberal economic ideology worldwide. They demonstrate how microfinance, as a market-friendly approach to development, coincides with the global trend towards diminishing the role of the state in economic development, basic healthcare, education and welfare. The articles in the volume focus on the empirical analyses of the experience of microfinance in women’s everyday lives, but rejects the connection between microfinance and women’s empowerment so often imputed in literature. This book offers regional, cultural and other explanations for variable assessments of microfinance and empowerment. It fills a huge gap in published microfinance literature and will be of great interest to postgraduates and professionals in the fields of economics, international finance and banking.

This book makes use of newly available archival sources to reexamine the Roman Catholic Church’s policy, from the sixteenth to nineteenth centuries, of coercing the Jews of Rome into converting to Christianity. Marina Caffiero, one of the first historians permitted access to important archives, sets individual stories of denunciation, betrayal, pleading, and conflict into historical context to highlight the Church’s actions and the Jewish response. Caffiero documents the regularity with which Jews were abducted from the Roman ghetto and pressured to accept baptism. She analyzes why some Jewish men, interested in gaining a business advantage, were more inclined to accept conversion than the women. The book exposes the complexity of relations between the papacy and the Jews, revealing the Church not as a monolithic entity, but as a network of competing institutions, and affirming the Roman Jews as active agents of resistance.

Ce qui fait marcher les gens dans l'entreprise et ailleurs, ce sont les incitations financières... La réussite d'une entreprise repose avant tout sur sa stratégie... Une entreprise doit savoir maîtriser le changement... Ce qu'il faut à une entreprise, c'est un grand leader... Autant d'exemples d'affirmations péremptoires que vous avez sans doute déjà entendues... et pour cause, puisqu'elles inspirent fréquemment le management et les prises de décision dans les entreprises. Et si elles étaient fausses, ou seulement partiellement vraies? Par exemple, et si les incitations financières avaient des conséquences qui altèrent la performance? Et si se focaliser sur la stratégie plutôt que sur l'efficacité opérationnelle, c'était mettre à côté de la plaque? Et si le changement était parfois pire que l'absence de changement? Et si les "grands leaders" ne jouaient qu'un rôle mineur dans la performance de leur entreprise ? Des questions - parmi d'autres -, auxquelles répond cet ouvrage iconoclaste qui repose sur un constat simple : le management se fonde le plus souvent, non pas sur l'analyse de faits avérés, mais sur des croyances inspirées par l'espoir, l'angoisse, ou l'idéologie. Les décisions des managers s'appuient sur une information très incomplète, souvent biaisée, et mal analysée. Dans bien des cas, elles ne reposent pas sur une réflexion autonome mais sur l'imitation irréfléchie de ce que font les concurrents. Mais un autre management est possible... Les auteurs proposent ainsi le développement du "management fondé sur la preuve". Plutôt que d'asséner des vérités prétendument indépassables, ils invitent les managers à remplacer les demi-vérités pernicieuses et les croyances par l'évidence des faits et livrent la méthode pour y parvenir. Une lecture stimulante pour en finir avec les idées reçues en entreprise!
