This book presents the current state of knowledge concerning developments in organisational behaviour and human capital management in the new millennium. It features an in-depth study among managerial staff in the manufacturing sector in Malaysia to reflect employee perceptions of organisational justice, organisational citizenship behaviour, job satisfaction and manager-employee exchanges. Specifically, it seeks to establish the relationships between these constructs to better manage human capital. With globalisation and the increased career mobility of young talents, organisational citizenship behaviour is of paramount importance in order to retain these workers. The studys greatest contribution is its identification of key indicators that influence organisational citizenship behaviour. Knowing which type of organisational justice is salient for each construct allows the management to proactively improve conditions at the workplace. In essence, this book is intended to draw attention to those aspects of managing human capital that ought to receive the most attention, but are often overlooked in practice. In light of ongoing global challenges, it seeks to improve governance at the workplace. It offers a valuable resource for researchers and practitioners alike, as well as graduate students writing their dissertations.

This book utilizes quantitative research methods to identify the relationship between the level of mindfulness and demographic factors among university students in Malaysia. More specifically, it explores the mindfulness, its benefits and relationship with demography, and the field of study of university students. While Mindfulness Attention Awareness Scale questionnaire (Brown & Rayan, 2003) was used for the quantitative approach, findings in the book were also ascertained through descriptive and co-relational statistics test. The research presented in the book moves beyond the individual level of mindfulness towards organizational mindfulness, and will be useful for psychotherapists, high school counselors and teachers.

This book discusses the importance of identifying and addressing misconceptions for the successful teaching and learning of science across all levels of science education from elementary school to high school. It suggests teaching approaches based on research data to address students common misconceptions. Detailed descriptions of how these instructional approaches can be incorporated into teaching and learning science are also included. The science education literature extensively documents the findings of studies about students misconceptions or alternative conceptions about various science concepts. Furthermore, some of the studies involve systematic approaches to not only creating but also implementing instructional programs to reduce the incidence of these misconceptions among high school science students. These studies, however, are largely unavailable to classroom practitioners, partly because they are usually found in various science education journals that teachers have no time to refer to or are not readily available to them. In response, this book offers an essential and easily accessible guide. Dr. Mageswary Karpudewan, co-editor and contributor, is an Associate Professor at the School of Educational Studies, USM.

This book is an exploration of the various types of transnational politics that the Chin and Acehnese people are engaged in, particularly in the Malaysian state. As with so many migrants elsewhere in the world who try to organize themselves transnationally, the Chin and Acehnese have needed to negotiate a challenging socio-political landscape that is the Malaysian state. Here, the author illustrates that migrants dont just travel with their hopes for the future, but with grievances and identities which are rooted in their homelands. This is a book for those interested in reading an account that reflects the complexities of migrant life in the 21 st century - an era replete with fluid labour markets, deregulated air travel, porous borders and political leaders who move transnationally, acting as binding agents for the far-flung communities they seek to represent.
