This is the second edition of a book about a little understood subject, the dramatic reform of the American military, and particularly the U.S. Army, between the end of the Vietnam war and the Persian Gulf war of 1990-91. The second edition material carries the study through the 1990s and a few years beyond. We cover a lot of subjects that few Americans are familiar with. The reforms after Vietnam were more driven by the results of the 1973 Arab-Israeli war and paid for by defense spending increases begun by president Carter. The end of the Cold War ended up creating a need for more reforms.

A company begins exploration of future operations in a remote and rural area of a poor, but resource-rich country. The communities in this area welcome the company's interest, seeing the prospects for improved social and economic conditions. They look forward to the creation of jobs and other income opportunities, and they look forward to being connected to the outside world through the company.The company, for its part, wants to get it right with local communities. In order to understand the context in which they plan to operate as well as to demonstrate their respect for local mores, managers hire an anthropologist or a non-governmental organization (NGO) to do community surveys. They see these as the first steps for establishing good relations between the company and local communities.Five years later, a visitor to the area sees schools and clinics that the company has built and staffed for the community. He sees upgraded roads and electricity that had not existed before. He sees increased activity in the region, more people and more vehicles, as people have migrated to the area for work. But he hears the company manager complain that he spends far too much time dealing with the community's "never-ending demands" and with "local trouble-makers," and he hears community members complain that "the company has done nothing for us."This book has been written for corporate managers who are responsible for company operations in societies that are poor and politically unstable. Many such managers are frustrated with the situations they face. They try their best to run effective, profitable and beneficial operations that take account of the needs of all their stakeholders, including local surrounding communities. But, even with their best efforts, they encounter community dissatisfaction, unrest, opposition, and delays and, worse yet, threats and violence.In many ways, this book is also written *by* such managers because the information and learning it includes come directly from their day-to-day, grounded field experience. For seven years the authors have spent days and weeks at over 25 sites of companies – including (among others) BP, ChevronTexaco, Barrick, Shell, Total, and Newmont – operating in Africa, Asia, Latin America, Australia, and North America, talking with both company staff and local people. They have gathered evidence of how the daily, ongoing operations of companies interact with, affect, and are affected by the societies where they work. They have heard lots of complaints – on both sides. They have seen policies and programs, intended to establish positive relations, backfire and, instead, bring angry demonstrations at the company gate and seemingly endless negotiations and demands. They have also seen operations that are appreciated and supported by local people because of the positive impacts they have had.Both corporations and communities begin their interactions with positive attitudes and expectations, but in a short time tensions between the two rise and negative attitudes can supplant positive ones. In each location where CEP has seen this story play out, there are, of course, variations and details that reflect the specific context and local history. But the regularity and similarity of complaints across so many contexts also show that there are clear, and predictable, patterns in the processes by which company–community relations turn sour.Getting it Right reports, analyzes, and sorts the broad and varied experiences of these many corporations, bringing forward the lessons that can be usefully applied in other settings. The aim is to help corporate managers *get it right* with respect to interactions with local communities, so that they can more efficiently and effectively accomplish their production goals and, at the same time, ensure that local communities are better (rather than worse) off as a result of their presence. The book also addresses what has been learned about how companies can interact, appropriately and positively, with national governments and advocacy NGOs in ways that promote, rather than undermine, the welfare of the citizens of the countries where they operate.The book provides a treasure trove of practical experience against which other managers can analyze their own situations and, using what has been learned by smart colleagues before them, arrive at sound, practical approaches to their daily challenges.Getting it Right will be an indispensable resource for all managers working in community relations or responsible for operations in difficult locations, as well as for students of development studies, corporate social responsibility, sustainable development, the extractive industries, and stakeholder management.

Many graphic designers who have a degree course or extensive training behind them have little knowledge of the actual requirements of the printing process. Often afraid to admit it, every time they send a job to the printer they experience a period of nail-biting anxiety because they don't know how it's going to turn out. The book aims to give designers the confidence to do everything necessary to ensure trouble-free, high-quality printing - to calibrate images, both colour and black and white; adjust trapping to appropriate levels in all the major software applications, and mix colours that won't print as something that is a complete surprise. It explains scanning and resolution, and discusses good and bad image formats, describing techniques to make images look good in print - even if they have been downloaded from the internet. There is advice on how to get accurate quotes from a printer, and a checklist to use when sending a job to print.

In the rush to make decisions, many business professionals overlook an invaluable resource... one that could mean the difference between overwhelming success and outrageous failure. Readily available information is becoming the key factor behind better decision-making-especially as businesses prepare for the 21st century. Getting it Right: Avoiding the High Cost of Wrong Decisions is the first book to link information and decision making as a single powerful tool. Drawn from Deborah C. Sawyer's 20+ years of research to support business decisions, she now invites readers to consider and learn decision-making strategies once known only to a few professionals. Going behind the scenes, Sawyer leads you through a review of recent and past business decisions. Some were disasters-others were triumphs. In each case, Sawyer can show you where information would have prevented catastrophe-and how it ensured success. Also noting the many situations that keep recurring in business and industry today, Getting it Right: Avoiding the High Cost of Wrong Decisions emphasizes that today's actions are tomorrow's consequences. Sawyer explains how information currently being ignored or excluded from decision-making will have a negative impact over the next 10 to 25 years. Fortunately, Sawyer knows when a simple infusion of the right information can save companies a bundle. Let her experiences and observations empower you to build the same abilities-and make better decisions for now and the future!
