Описание: Asian Smallholders in Comparative Perspective provides the first multicountry, inter-disciplinary analysis of the single most important social and economic formation in the Asian countryside: the smallholder. Based on ten core country chapters, the volume describes and explains the persistence, transformations, functioning and future of the smallholder and smallholdings across East and Southeast Asia. As well as providing a source book for scholars working on agrarian change in the region, it also engages with a number of key current areas of debate, including: the nature and direction of the agrarian transition in Asia, and its distinctiveness vis a vis transitions in the global North; the persistence of the smallholder notwithstanding deep and rapid structural change; and the question of the efficiency and productivity of smallholder-based farming set against concerns over global and national food security.

This book is a must-have for anyone wanting to understand Vermont's forests, wetlands, mountaintops, and shores. Richly illustrated with beautiful line drawings and stunning color photographs, this accessible field guide will delight outdoor explorers and armchair naturalists alike. The book starts with an introduction to the natural community concept and the factors influencing our natural systems, from wind and water to soil and rocks. Then, the book offers a lucid and enjoyable journey into Vermont's geologic past, with stories of colliding continents, sea floor sediments, and mysterious whale bones. This follows with a journey through all of Vermont's nine distinct biophysical regions, from the cold and wild Northeastern Highlands to the warm and dry Taconic Mountains.
The bulk of the book describes Vermont's natural communities--its northern hardwood forests, dry oak woodlands, alpine tundra, cedar swamps, bogs, and marshes--in comprehensive detail. Ecological settings, including geology, soils, climate, and natural disturbance processes, are described for each community, along with complete lists of characteristic plants and animals, as well as places to visit. Wetland, Woodland, Wildland is the definitive guide to Vermont's natural communities, and is packed with information unavailable elsewhere. It offers practical information for naturalists, teachers, students, landowners, land managers, foresters, conservation planners, and all those with a love of nature who want to learn more about their surroundings.
The first edition of this book, published in 2000, has become a mainstay for naturalists and students throughout Vermont and surrounding states and provinces. This second edition is completely updated to incorporate new research and a growing knowledge about natural communities, as well as a deeper understanding of climate change and its implications for conservation into the future.
This newly updated book will be a prized addition to your natural history library, but it won't remain on the shelf. You will want to take it with you every time you explore the outdoors. Each paragraph will bring new insights and will deepen your understanding and appreciation of wild nature around you. You will surely want to share this book with friends.

When it comes to budgeting, I often find that real estate brokerage owners and managers aren't always taught how to earn a profit nor how to set up their budget. They're not even sure of the return on investment they should expect or how to allocate their expenses.
Big questions nag them like:
How much should I spend on rent?
How much should go to staff?
What about my marketing investment?
How much of the commissions can I expect to retain?
What kind of return should I aim for?
Frankly, where do I even start?
I faced these same questions when I opened my own brokerage company. While designing my company and preparing for launch, these questions literally kept me up at night. My personality wouldn't allow me to ever just "wing it." Making it up as I go along has never worked out for me.
Formulas, on the other hand, work out great. I am really good at following a recipe.
My problem was I had no formula to follow. So I decided to create one. As I set about to create the recipe for my budget I had a few big things going for me:
While I had never owned my own company, I had run other successful, profitable companies in the past.
I had access to research on our industry and what makes companies profitable. Most of this research came from Steve Murrayu of Real Trends.
I had an insider's view of the most successful and profitable companies in our industry through my membership in various CEO groups.
I was determined to learn the rules from leaders of successful and profitable companies. Why not just do what they do? Why not just generate revenue like they do, allocate expenses like they do, so I earn the returns they do? And why not try to do it even better?
The result was The Profit Blueprint. It gave me the formula to follow. The payoff was enormous. Namely, I could sleep at night I was now clear about what to do. I became so excited about this formula that I told some other people about it and the next thing you know, others wanted it too. Now, I want to share it with you.
What seems to work about this blueprint is that it will work regardless of the market and regardless of company size. So, maybe you have just a handful of brokers in your company or maybe you have 200. Maybe you are in a big city or maybe you are in a small town. In either case, The Profit Blueprint will work.
