This volume establishes how English language constructs were measured in Cambridge English examinations over the period 1913 to 2012. An addition to the Studies in Language Testing series, this volume provides an overview of English language testing over the last century, with coverage of key theoretical and practical aspects of the assessment of reading, listening, writing and speaking skills. It includes examples of the Cambridge English exams, old and new, and is the first volume to describe in a systematic way the different theoretical influences which have shaped the development of the constructs underlying Cambridge English exams in the last 100 years.

This very applied approach to the managerial use of marketing research is designed and organized by the steps in the marketing research process. Great care has been taken to deal with the technical aspects of marketing research in a manner that allows the reader to apply research procedures to real applications in a pragmatic, step-by-step, "here's how to do it" fashion. The revision contains 35 cases; 14 new to this edition. The changes to the Fifth Edition include the addition of substantial insights and examples on international marketing research. Major new illustrations entitled Global Marketing Research Dynamics appear throughout the text. Three marketing research databases available on a PC-disk, accompany each copy of the book and contain real results from actual marketing research studies and are all keyed to the major PC-based analysis packages: SPSS-PC, SAS-PC, SYSTAT-PC, and MYSTAT-PC.

Departing from dominant traditions in studies of the UK Parliament and its politicians, Who Enters Politics and Why? approaches the study of elite agency in Westminster from an original and rigorous approach grounded in psychological political science. This unique analysis considers the ways people enter in to politics, and how they represent their constituents as parliamentarians once they are there. Drawing on a survey of more than 100 MPs and in-depth interviews, James Weinberg assesses the demographics and characteristics of UK politicians. Through methodical analysis of attitudes and ideologies, he gets to the core of their motivations and the values that influence Parliamentary behaviour and policy making. This is a fresh psychological approach to political science that exposes the increasing disconnect between MPs and the public, and casts new light on the question of whether we really get the politicians we deserve.
