If you want to exude presence, you need to be present. It's so easy to say and so hard to achieve or maintain. Presence, liveness and spontaneity - fundamental requirements for any performer on stage or screen - are disciplined psychophysical techniques, they combine ways of thinking with ways of using the body. 'Climbing the Mountain' contains 30 short talks given by Master Trainer John Britton across a six-weeks training process. It is a journey that takes you from the slightly nervous first morning, through a process of building ensemble and encountering the self, to the final day of the course, as a group who have shared so much, head out into the world again. Along the way there is a laugher, philosophy, silliness, questioning, struggle... all the elements of a performer's journey. There is also joy; always joy - for this book charts a training based in a radical commitment to enjoyment, empowerment and ensemble. Though this book is for all performers, its appeal is much wider. To be open, joyous, and authentic requires a performer to find and nurture those personal qualities in herself or himself. Dynamic, charismatic live performance requires a disciplined and radical process of personal growth. The approaches that work for performers work for everyone. 'Climbing the Mountain' offers a training for anyone who wants to become more present in their daily life, in their work, and in their relationships. 'Climbing the Mountain' takes you into the privacy of the rehearsal room as a group of actors and dancers learn to stand fearlessly, joyously and passionately in front of their audience. You are invited to join them.

What are the links among industrial structure, segmentation, the internal structure of firms, job characteristics, technology, productivity, labor markets, and product markets? The answers, posited by a distinguished group of sociologists and economists, have gained resonance as the field of economic sociology has grown. In this expanded edition, the editors and their economist colleague, Kevin Lang, explore the theoretical interstices and update the references.

Sociologists and economists have responded differently to work within the other discipline. For some sociologists, the typical economic assumption of basic actors engaged in rational action is both unrealistic and objectionable. Other sociologists have not always agreed with everything economists do, they have seen "rational choice" as a partially true description of human behavior and as a starting point for sociological theorizing. Among economists, the situation is quite different: most have maintained their basic rational choice model while pushing aggressively into substantive areas previously addressed only by sociologists and political scientists.

Industries, Firms, and Jobs is a welcome reassertion of an old tradition of interdisciplinary research. That tradition has recently weakened, largely because of an enormous expansion of the domain of neoclassical economics. The expansion has fed on two scientific developments: human capital theory and contract theory. This book is an invaluable resource for all economists, sociologists, labor specialists, and business professionals.
