This comprehensive book serves as an excellent reference manual providing answers to virtually every conceivable question that can arise during the planning and implementation process of an evaluation. Aimed at readers with a limited knowledge in the field of evaluation techniques and who want to study further, this volume will serve all those who conduct evaluations themselves, as well as decision-makers who commission evaluations and those who are evaluated. All stakeholders of an evaluation should know about the characteristics and standards of a professional and competently implemented evaluation. The book offers a basic introduction to the foundations and the benefits of this type of investigation as well as a comparison of different evaluation approaches. It also deals with the practical organisation of evaluations and presents a general overview of possible evaluation designs. After a discussion of the social context of evaluations, the book provides an in-depth methodological framework for data measurement, data collection and data management. It concludes with a description of the reporting process. Being the first thorough and detailed manual of its kind, this Handbook will appeal to evaluation practitioners, policymakers who conduct evaluations in their daily work, students training in applied research and organisations which are implementing projects and programs that could be the subject of an evaluation.

In 1999, a suite of three new conditions of contract was published by FIDIC, following the basic structure and wording harmonised and updated around the previous FIDIC Design-Build and Turnkey Contract (the 1992 ''Orange Book''). These conditions, known as the ''FIDIC rainbow, were the Conditions of C- tract for: l Construction, the so-called Red Book, for works designed by the Employer l Plant and Design-Build, the so-called Yellow Book, for works designed by the Contractor l EPC/Turnkey Projects, the so-called Silver Book, for works designed by the Contractor The ?rst is intended for construction works where the Employer is responsible for the design, as for per the previous so-called Red Book 4th Edition (1987), with an important role for the Engineer. The other two conditions of contract are intended for situations when the Contractor is responsible for the design. The Plant and Design-Build Contract has the traditional Engineer while the EPC/Turnkey Contract has a two-party arran- ment, generally with an Employer's Representative as one of the parties.
This book explores the implications of globalisation for understanding law. Adopting a broad concept of law and a global perspective, it critically reviews mainstream Western traditions of academic law, legal theory, and human rights discourse. Its central thesis is that most processes of so-called 'globalisation' take place at sub-global levels and that a healthy cosmopolitan discipline of law should encompass all levels of social relations and legal ordering. It shows how the mainstream Western canon of jurisprudence should be critically reviewed and extended to take account of other legal traditions and cultures. Written by a leading scholar in the field, this important work presents an exciting alternative vision of jurisprudence. It challenges the traditional canon of legal theorists and guides the reader through a field undergoing seismic changes in the era of globalisation. This is essential reading for all students of jurisprudence, human rights, and comparative law and socio-legal studies.
This book treats the design of realtime and embedded control systems as a unified, multidisciplinary exercise. It empowers the reader with the required knowledge and tools to move beyond the restrictive domain of timedriven PID control and will be of interest to engineers with a practical background in control or digital signal processing, control engineers who wish to move beyond basic control algorithm implementations, and practitioners of realtime and embedded systems who wish to increase their knowledge of control systems.
