The need for this book arose from my teaching, engineering, and - search experience in the non-power aspects of nuclear technology. The lack of a comprehensive textbook in industrial applications of radiation frustrated my students, who had to resort to a multitude of textbooks and research publications to familiarize themselves with the fundam- tal and practical aspects of radiation technology. As an engineer, I had to acquire the design aspects of radiation devices by trial-and-error, and often by accidental reading of a precious publication. As a researcher and a supervisor of graduate students, I found that the needed literature was either hard to find, or too scattered and diverse. More than once, I discovered that what appeared to be an exciting new idea was an old concept that was tried a few decades earlier during the golden era of "Atom for Peace". I am hoping, therefore, that this book will serve as a single comprehensive reference source in a growing field that I expect will continue to expand. This book is directed to both neophytes and experts, and is written to combine the old and the new, the basic and the advanced, the simple and the complex. It is anticipated that this book will be of help in - viving older concepts, improving and expanding existing techniques and promoting the development of new ones.
The main question of the eBook is 'how to not screw up when managing a remote team?' To answer this question, the first chapter zooms into why you would setup an offshore team. Without asking that question, your sole motive might be pure cost savings or to speed up your project on the short term. If those are the only motives, chances are big that you come out disappointed. Managing remote teams, with big geographical, cultural and language gaps, is not easy and needs careful thinking and preparation. Hugo Messer, a global staffing expert from the Netherlands, writes about the why from the 'vendor' perspective. Hugo has gained substantial experience in setting up and managing remote teams, with suppliers, freelancers and own offices. Then Zhenya Rozinskiy, an experienced outsourcer from the US, writes from the 'buyer' perspective about the reasons, risks and rewards. Zhenya has been involved in setting up remote development teams for over 15 years for companies of various sizes and in many different countries. Furthermore, to prepare you for the journey, three authors share their insights into the pitfalls of offshoring and how to prevent them. They describe real practical lessons learned, supported by cases from their daily work. Each of them looks at success from a different angle, one as the liaison between the Netherlands and India, one as consultant, and one as nearshore provider. Erik Joustra works for Tech Mahindra, a large Indian outsourcing company. He runs their Dutch office and acts as a delivery manager to accommodate Dutch multinationals working with their Indian teams. Katie Gove, is the CEO of Trellis, a consulting company from Denmark focused on outsourcing. She has seen many projects go wrong and will share some of these stories as well as how to prevent them. Nataly lives in Ukraine and works for Intercomputer, an outsourcing provider from Ukraine. She has gained experience in different outsourcing companies in the past ten years and looks at the pitfalls and success factors from the supplier's point of view. This is the first eBook in a series of eBooks that will be published within a couple of months interval and later on in one printed book. The eBooks are being written through a crowdwriting project and the authors are experts from all over the world.

"L'Abb Constantin" is a comedy in three acts, taking place against the background of the Franco-Prussian War. The Abb is curate of a small church supported by the income of a nearby estate.

This book examines how governments, non-profit and private organizations, and local networks understand the connections between public values and social issues. Western societies face complex social issues and a growing diversity of views on how these should be addressed. The traditional view focuses on government and public policy but neglects the initiatives that non-profit and private organizations and local networks take. This book presents a broader variety of viewpoints and theories. Looking at various cases, the authors analyze conflicting values and interests, actors' understandings of the public values related to social issues, and their action to create what they regard as public value. Drawing together these perspectives the authors point the way to how government and the private and voluntary sectors can work in tandem to resolve social issues. The study will prove insightful for researchers and PhD students in fields such as governance studies, public administration, public sector management, organization studies, non-profit and voluntary organizations, civil society, public policy, social policy and social issues in management. The policy focus of the book will also draw the interest of policy makers in governmental and non-governmental organizations.
