There is an expansive literature concerning the standardization vs. localization debate and HRM, but most are related to Western European and Eastern Asian countries. While there is a great amount of potential in the Middle East, the region is ignored by scholars due to the difficulty of access to these countries. This research examines the standardization and localization debate in one of the Middle Eastern countries: Iran. In fact, this dissertation tries to illustrate the circumstance of HRM in Iran and Western MNCs in Iran by using single case study which is done in Unilever.

The Book presents works on characterization of different processes inside thunderstorms using VLF sferics and Vertical Electric Field monitor (VEC). From the measurements of electric field variation during thunderstorm it is observed that the tri-pole charge structure and the Lower Positive Charge Centers (LPCC) seem to be much dynamic over North-East India. Several enhancement and decrement in the sferics level occurred due to the vigorous charge separation during the precipitation and during the lightning processes during the AILA cyclone activity. One major part of the current work is devoted to the climatology and electrical characteristics of thunderstorms of North East India located in the foothill of the Himalayas. This type of work is the first of its kind in this region and it will provide valuable scientific information regarding thundercloud activities in North East India.

Poetry from North-East India, in all its manifestations, demonstrate a kind of uniqueness in that it speaks predominantly of contemporary events--affairs which repeatedly makes them aware of a troubled, hopeless existence. It reflects the traumas of a society in transition. The past is pervading, yet the past and the present connect with a sense of longing: the emotional cessation created between the past and the present leads to a sadness layered with irony and a hint of derision. The rich, unifying traditions of the past and the chaotic developments of the present create a conflict in the poet's mind.

The writers from various provinces of North-East India are debating local identities and cultural/ ethnic issues.

Processing techniques, quality attributes and consumers acceptability of cow milk products obtained from three region of northern Nigeria were investigated in this study. Sixty cow milk products processors (twenty/region) were selected and interviewed. Consumers acceptability pattern of cow milk products were assessed through a field survey. Results of the study showed that four cow milk products (sour ‘nono’, yoghurt, soft/hard cheese and butter) are produced in the three zones. Similar processing techniques were used in north east and northwest but this was different from that of north central. Hard cheese/ chuku are processed in north east and north west while soft cheese/wara is processed in the north central. Calf/rennet or abomasa is the main ingredient used in hard cheese while sodom apple is the chief ingredient in soft cheese making. Consumer data reveals a relatively higher preference for yoghurt (46.33%) and butter (27.33%)than the other products. While hard cheese and butter were highly (30% and 35% respectively) consumed in the north east and north west than their counterparts from north central who have high (28%) preference for soft cheese.
