📒Barbarians At The Gate ✍ Bryan Burrough
📝Barbarians at the Gate Book Synopsis : “One of the finest, most compelling accounts of what happened to corporate America and Wall Street in the 1980’s.” —New York Times Book Review A #1 New York Times bestseller and arguably the best business narrative ever written, Barbarians at the Gate is the classic account of the fall of RJR Nabisco. An enduring masterpiece of investigative journalism by Bryan Burrough and John Helyar, it includes a new afterword by the authors that brings this remarkable story of greed and double-dealings up to date twenty years after the famed deal. The Los Angeles Times calls Barbarians at the Gate, “Superlative.” The Chicago Tribune raves, “It’s hard to imagine a better story...and it’s hard to imagine a better account.” And in an era of spectacular business crashes and federal bailouts, it still stands as a valuable cautionary tale that must be heeded.

📒Barbarians At The Gates ✍ Christopher G. Nuttall
📝Barbarians at the Gates Book Synopsis : The Federation has endured for hundreds of years, but now it is dying, killed by the corruption and decadence of the Senate and the rising power of military warlords. The shipping lanes are coming apart, the colonists are revolting and outside forces are pressing against undefended borders. Now, as one warlord makes a bid for supreme power, the entire edifice is on the verge of falling apart. Two officers, bearers of a proud military tradition, may be all that stands between the Federation and total destruction. For Admiral Marius Drake, there is no greater cause than the survival of humanity's prized unity. For the young and ambitious Roman Garibaldi, the growing civil war offers a chance of promotion far beyond the usual boundaries. Together, they will save the Federation or die trying. But with the Senate suspicious of any competent commanding officers, their success may condemn them to an inglorious death.

📒Diversity Managers Angels Of Mercy Or Barbarians At The Gate ✍ Dr. Shelton J. Goode
📝Diversity Managers Angels of Mercy or Barbarians at the Gate Book Synopsis :
Diversity managers who want to integrate cost-effective, battle-tested initiatives don’t have enough tools and resources to identify and apply best practices to actual work situations. These programs demand time, energy, and money—and the empirical evidence about outcomes is limited. The few studies out there contradict each other, which can make it nearly impossible to determine what practices to implement.
Dr. Shelton J. Goode, who has spent more than twenty years as a diversity and human resource management professional, cuts through the clutter to help you locate strengths and weaknesses in your diversity strategy. You can learn how to
•benchmark organizational efforts against the actions other companies have taken to manage diversity;
•identify outdated paradigms and misguided diversity management initiatives that have prevented others from capitalizing on talent embedded within the ranks; and
•judge where past efforts have yielded success and which initiatives require a new approach.
Despite the importance of linking diversity to the organization’s bottom line, there has been no single, comprehensive resource that employees could turn to for guidance—until now! Business leaders at every level can find best practices to achieve organizational goals in Diversity Managers: Angels of Mercy or Barbarians at the Gate.
📒Ancient Roman History Barbarians At The Gate Ghost Warrior ✍ Adrian Ambrose
📝Ancient Roman History Barbarians at the Gate Ghost Warrior Book Synopsis : It has been 210 years since Rome's greatest general, Scipio Africanus, triumphantly won what is arguably Rome's greatest victory at the Battle of Zama against the great Hannibal of Carthage. For over two centuries Rome has continued its empirical march, leveling all opposition and conquering new lands and people. The world has never seen a force like that of the Roman Empire. Roman life is at its zenith as it witnesses the continual rise of an empire. At her northern borders Rome is knocking on the door of Ancient Germania. It is a densely forested land inhabited by a highly fractured society. The people of Ancient Germany are a fiercely independent people yet they lack any cohesion or structure. From the outside looking in Rome expects a quick and simple victory. However, while Rome organizes her strategy to kick down the door she has overlooked the barbarians at the gate. Amongst those barbarians sits an elite class of Germanic warriors. They are a ruthless, efficient, and highly skilled elite force. They attack in the pitch of darkness and they are the first warriors to ever don camouflage. They fight in silence with spears, slings, javelins, and blunt battle-clubs. They are the warriors that legends and nightmares are made of and they are remembered by history as Germania's Ghost Warriors.This is the true story of history's greatest victory. Never before in history has an army overcome such amazing odds and done so with such definiteness. It will mark the beginning of the end of the mighty Roman Empire and give birth to one of history's greatest military leaders, Arminius. He will single handedly spark the rise of a nation by uniting a fractured and unorganized group of communities that will one day become Germany. As one ancient civilization stumbles the other finds firm footing for centuries to come.
📒Barbarians Within The Gates Of Rome ✍ Thomas S. Burns
📝Barbarians Within the Gates of Rome Book Synopsis : At the death of the Emperor Valentinian I in 375, Rome had behind it centuries of dealing with barbarian peoples along its borders. Germanic recruits were serving in virtually all branches of the Roman army, including the officer corps. Soldiers of barbarian origin were entering into imperial service, sometimes after defeats but more often as a standard feature of life along Rome's frontiers. In 425, fifty years later, barbarians were still fighting for Rome but increasingly under their own kings, whom Rome recognized and supported within the Empire. The interim was one of the most exciting and challenging periods in Roman history.

📒U S Corporate Governance ✍ Donald Chew
📝U S Corporate Governance Book Synopsis : Corporate governance constitutes the internal and external institutions, markets, policies, and processes designed to help companies maximize their efficiency and value. In this collection of classic and current articles from the Journal of Applied Corporate Finance, thought leaders such as Michael Jensen and Robert Monks discuss the corporate mission of value maximization and the accomplishments and limitations of U.S. governance in achieving that end. They address the elements driving corporate value: the board of directors, compensation for CEOs and other employees, incentives and organizational structure, external ownership and control, role of markets, and financial reporting. They evaluate best practice methods, challenges in designing equity plans, the controversy over executive compensation, the values of decentralization, identifying and attracting the "right" investors, the evolution of shareholder activism, creating value through mergers and acquisitions, and the benefits of just saying no to Wall Street's "earnings game." Grounded in solid research and practice, U.S. Corporate Governance is a crucial companion for navigating the world of modern finance.
