Written by leading experts in the field of business, finance, law and economics, this edited volume brings together the latest thoughts and developments on turnaround management and business rescue from an academic, judiciary and turnaround/insolvency practitioner perspective.

The Research Handbook of Turnaround Management presents different viewpoints on turnarounds and business rescue in Europe. Presenting a state-of-the-art review of failure research in finance, such as on bankruptcy prediction, causes of decline, or distressed asset valuation. It also presents the latest insights from turnaround management research as well as giving a contemporary insight into law debates on insolvency legislation reform, cross-border judicial issues, bankruptcy decision-making by judges and competition policy in distressed economies. Finally, the book provides a regional and sector perspective on how the current crisis affects Europe, its government policies and industry performance.

In this way, the volume presents a modern, interdisciplinary and scholarly overview of the latest insights, issues and debates in turnaround management and business rescue, developing a European perspective in an attempt to redress the predominance of an American orientation in the academic literature.

The Research Handbook of Turnaround Management aims at a wider audience interested in turnarounds and failure, such as faculty and students in the fields of law, business, economics, accountancy, finance, strategic management, and marketing, but also at judges, insolvency practitioners, lawyers, accountants and turnaround professionals, as well as the EU and government officials, staff of trade unions and employer's associations.

This history of Ferranti during the last six years of its long existence provides a detailed exposition of the merger with an American firm that would bring it to its knees. Although only covering six years, this builds on the previous two volumes of the Ferranti history that has outlined how the firm grew into one of the UK's leading defence electronics operations. Having survived a major liquidity crisis in 1974-75, Ferranti recovered robustly under new management, only to flounder under the same leadership as a result of a major foray into the American defence electronics industry. The case-study outlines the inherent dangers in international mergers, as well as the acute problems associated with City and corporate governance practices which resulted in decisions that undermined Ferranti fatally.

Condemned To Crisis?

RRP $9.99

It is often said that no country is more important to Australia than Indonesia. Yet the execution of Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran is just the latest in a long line of crises that have marred relations between Canberra and Jakarta.

Australian governments have been criticised for not doing more to strengthen ties with Indonesia, and even squandering opportunities to improve relations. In this penetrating analysis, Ken Ward argues that Australian governments and their critics need to be realistic about an Australia - Indonesia relationship that risks always being crisis-prone and volatile.

About the Author

Ken Ward left the Australian government in 2005 after a career in the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Office of National Assessments. His last government appointment was as Senior Indonesia Analyst at the Office of National Assessments. Since then, he has worked as a researcher on Indonesian terrorism and other Indonesian subjects, and has written extensively on the relationship between Australia and Indonesia.
