Winning and Losing in the Civil War collects fifteen of the most influential short writings by accomplished Civil War historian Albert Castel, each presented with his trademark wit, style, and analytical precision. The author expounds on some of the most provocative, arresting issues surrounding the war, including the dispute over inevitability of Northern victory and the question of Lee's greatness on and off the battlefield. Castel contemplates presidents and mules, generals and guerrillas, lovers and haters, facts and opinions, actualities and probabilities. In addition, he uses the volume as a forum for reflecting on his role as historian, identifying the primary problem facing present-day practitioners of Civil War historiography, and illumining what remains to be accomplished in this heavily tilled but ever-popular field of scholarly inquiry.

The 'Hundred Days' campaign of 1918 remains a neglected aspect of the First World War. Why was the German army defeated on the Western Front? Did its morale collapse or was it beaten by the improved military effectiveness of a British army which had climbed a painful 'learning curve' towards modern combined arms warfare? This revealing insight into the crucial final months of the First World War uses state-of-the-art methodology to present a rounded case study of the ability of both armies to adapt to the changing realities they faced. Jonathan Boff draws on both British and German archival sources, some of them previously unseen, to examine how representative armies fought during the 'Hundred Days' campaign. Assessing how far the application of modern warfare underpinned the British army's part in the Allied victory, the book highlights the complexity of modern warfare and the role of organisational behaviour within it.

The microscope on talent is in sharp focus and HR has more programmes and processes to manage talent than ever before. Yet many CEOs continue to see talent management as an escalating risk. The truth is that market realities across the world are so fundamentally different that one size solutions almost never succeed. Talent Economics is a refreshingly new, outside-in view on talent, which brings workforce analysis, management practice and strategy together. It uses economic inquiry as a discipline to present a brand new perspective in talent management - as simply put - economics is the study of how the forces of supply and demand allocate scarce resources. Talent Economics presents business leaders an opportunity to step back and understand the ebb and flow of global talent, before translating this new understanding into a winning strategy.
