Every Thursday, Gerald Gladwell visits Professor Anson Spice's tobacco shop. Gerald gives the professor an envelope from his employer, Mr. McGulliver, and Spice gives Gerald a small velvet pouch of tobacco. In almost two years of completing this weekly errand, Gerald has never questioned the contents of either the envelope or the pouch. But one particular Thursday, a question from a friend piques Gerald's curiosity: 'When have you ever seen Mr. McGulliver smoke a pipe?' This seemingly innocent question convinces Gerald that there may be more to his timid employer than he had previously suspected. When he discovers his missing sister's diary in Mr. McGulliver's office, he is unwittingly drawn into a world of adventure, mystery, and magic. If Gerald ever wants to see his sister again, he'll have to face ugly truths about those he trusts most. In a twisting, extraordinary series of trials that tests his loyalties and limits, Gerald learns that he'll need all the help he can get to deal with the consequences of Conducting Business with Professor Spice.

This volume focuses on the nature of official correspondence produced in the period after 1500, from Early Modern to nineteenth-century English. The contributions reflect the extent to which the genre is somewhat plastic in this period, gradually acquiring distinguishing conventions and protocols as the situations in which the letters themselves are encoded acquire more distinctiveness. Although correspondence has long been the object of diachronic studies, very little seems to be available as far as specialized usage is concerned, hence the specific interest in letters exchanged within scientific, diplomatic, and business networks. In addition, the study of business and official correspondence offered here profits from a multi-disciplinary and multi-methodological approach, as it relies on a rich array of databases and corpora of correspondence, ranging from highly specialized collections to more broadly constructed diagnostic corpora, in which correspondence is just one register or text-type. While specific attention is paid to phenomena relating to the expression of positive and negative politeness through the investigation of authentic (rather than constructed) texts, methodological issues are also taken into consideration.

Informality and the Playing Field in Vietnam s Business Sector

Private sector growth will be key to maintaining the dynamism of the Vietnamese economy and allowing the country to achieve its development objectives, the study finds. The authors point out that, above all, private enterprises need space to grow. Regulations that run counter to the logic of normal market practices, that give entrepreneurs few opportunities to enter into contractual relationships, or that penalize them for market success are bound to be circumvented, at significant social cost. By contrast, laws and regulations that are in harmony with market forces will be easier to implement, and their implementation will be supported by the same market forces they are designed to protect. Adapting laws and regulations to the needs of the marketplace will not be enough, however. According to the authors, incentives inside the bureaucracy need to be aligned with development. A government committed to development will find it beneficial to support the growth of the private sector.
