<b><i>New York Times</i> bestseller</b><br /> <br /><b>THE BOOK THAT EXPLAINS WHY RUSSIANS WANTED TO MEET WITH THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN</b><br /> <br /><b>鈥淧art John Grisham-like thriller, part business and political memoir.鈥?鈥?lt;i>The New York Times</i></b><br /> <br /><b>鈥淸<i>Red Notice</i>] does for investing in Russia and the former Soviet Union what <i>Liar鈥檚 Poker</i> did for our understanding of Salomon Brothers, Wall Street, and the mortgage-backed securities business in the 1980s. Browder鈥檚 business saga meshes well with the story of corruption and murder in Vladimir Putin鈥檚 Russia, making <i>Red Notice</i> an early candidate for any list of the year鈥檚 best books鈥?(<i>Fortune</i>).</b><br /><br />This is a story about an accidental activist. Bill Browder started out his adult life as the Wall Street maverick whose instincts led him to Russia just after the breakup of the Soviet Union, where he made his fortune.<br /> <br /> Along the way he exposed corruption, and when he did, he barely escaped with his life. His Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky wasn鈥檛 so lucky: he ended up in jail, where he was tortured to death. That changed Browder forever. He saw the murderous heart of the Putin regime and has spent the last half decade on a campaign to expose it. Because of that, he became Putin鈥檚 number one enemy, especially after Browder succeeded in having a law passed in the United States鈥擳he Magnitsky Act鈥攖hat punishes a list of Russians implicated in the lawyer鈥檚 murder. Putin famously retaliated with a law that bans Americans from adopting Russian orphans.<br /> <br />A financial caper, a crime thriller, and a political crusade, <i>Red Notice</i> is the story of one man taking on overpowering odds to change the world, and also the story of how, without intending to, he found meaning in his life.

<b><b>China expert Robert Spalding reveals the shocking success China has had infiltrating American institutions and compromising our national security.</b></b><br /><br />The media often suggest that Russia poses the greatest threat to America's national security, but the real danger lies farther east. While those in power have been distracted and disorderly, China has waged a six-front war on America's economy, military, diplomacy, technology, education, and infrastructure--and they're winning. It's almost too late to undo the shocking, though nearly invisible, victories of the Chinese. <br /><br />In <i>Stealth War</i>, retired Air Force Brigadier General Robert Spalding reveals China's motives and secret attacks on the West. Chronicling how our leaders have failed to protect us over recent decades, he provides shocking evidence of some of China's most brilliant ploys, including:<br /><br />聽聽鈥⒙犅燩lacing Confucius Institutes in universities across the United States that serve to monitor and control Chinese students on campus and spread communist narratives to unsuspecting American students.<br /><br />聽聽鈥⒙犅燨ffering enormous sums to American experts who create investment funds that funnel technology to China.<br /><br />聽聽鈥⒙犅燬igning a thirty-year agreement with the US that allows China to share peaceful nuclear technology, ensuring that they have access to American nuclear know-how.<br /><br />Spalding's concern isn't merely that America could lose its position on the world stage. More urgently, the Chinese Communist Party has a fundamental loathing of the legal protections America grants its people and seeks to create a world without those rights. <br /><br />Despite all the damage done so far, Spalding shows how it's still possible for the U.S. and the rest of the free world to combat--and win--China's stealth war.

Friedman exposes the tectonic movements that are reshaping the world today and explains how to get the most out of them and cushion their worst impacts. His thesis: to understand the twenty-first century, you need to understand that the planet鈥檚 three largest forces鈥擬oore鈥檚 law (technology), the Market (globalization), and Mother Nature (climate change and biodiversity loss)鈥攁re accelerating all at once. These accelerations are transforming five key realms: the workplace, politics, geopolitics, ethics, and community. The year 2007 was the major inflection point: the release of the iPhone, together with advances in silicon chips, software, storage, sensors, and networking, created a new technology platform that is reshaping everything from how we hail a taxi to the fate of nations to our most intimate relationships. It is providing vast new opportunities for individuals and small groups to save the world鈥攐r to destroy it.</p><p>With his trademark vitality, wit, and optimism, Friedman shows that we can overcome the multiple stresses of an age of accelerations鈥攊f we slow down, if we dare to be late and use the time to reimagine work, politics, and community. <i>Thank You for Being Late</i> is an essential guide to the present and the future.</p>

<b>Brilliant and engagingly written, <i>Why Nations Fail </i>answers the question that has stumped the experts for centuries: Why are some nations rich and others poor, divided by wealth and poverty, health and sickness, food and famine? <br /><i><br /></i></b>Is it culture, the weather, geography? Perhaps ignorance of what the right policies are? <br /><br />Simply, no. None of these factors is either definitive or destiny. Otherwise, how to explain why Botswana has become one of the fastest growing countries in the world, while other African nations, such as Zimbabwe, the Congo, and Sierra Leone, are mired in poverty and violence? <br /><br />Daron Acemoglu and James Robinson conclusively show that it is man-made political and economic institutions that underlie economic success (or lack of it). Korea, to take just one of their fascinating examples, is a remarkably homogeneous nation, yet the people of North Korea are among the poorest on earth while their brothers and sisters in South Korea are among the richest. The south forged a society that created incentives, rewarded innovation, and allowed everyone to participate in economic opportunities. <br /><br />The economic success thus spurred was sustained because the government became accountable and responsive to citizens and the great mass of people. Sadly, the people of the north have endured decades of famine, political repression, and very different economic institutions鈥攚ith no end in sight. The differences between the Koreas is due to the politics that created these completely different institutional trajectories. <br /><br />Based on fifteen years of original research Acemoglu and Robinson marshall extraordinary historical evidence from the Roman Empire, the Mayan city-states, medieval Venice, the Soviet Union, Latin America, England, Europe, the United States, and Africa to build a new theory of political economy with great relevance for the big questions of today, including: <br /><br />- China has built an authoritarian growth machine. Will it continue to grow at such high speed and聽overwhelm the West? <br /><br />- Are America鈥檚 best days behind it? Are we moving from a virtuous circle in which efforts by elites to aggrandize power are resisted to a vicious one that enriches and empowers a small minority? <br /><br />- What is the most effective way to help move billions of people from the rut of poverty to prosperity? More philanthropy from the wealthy nations of the West? Or learning the hard-won lessons of Acemoglu and Robinson鈥檚 breakthrough ideas on the interplay between inclusive political and economic institutions? <br /><br /><b><i>Why Nations Fail </i>will change the way you look at鈥攁nd understand鈥攖he world.聽</b>

<b>An international business expert helps you understand and navigate cultural differences in this insightful and practical guide, perfect for both your work and personal life.</b><br /><br />Americans precede anything negative with three nice comments; French, Dutch, Israelis, and Germans get straight to the point; Latin Americans and Asians are steeped in hierarchy; Scandinavians think the best boss is just one of the crowd. It's no surprise that when they try and talk to each other, chaos breaks out.<br /><br />In <i>The Culture Map</i>, INSEAD professor Erin Meyer is your guide through this subtle, sometimes treacherous terrain in which people from starkly different backgrounds are expected to work harmoniously together. She provides a field-tested model for decoding how cultural differences impact international business, and combines a smart analytical framework with practical, actionable advice.<br />
This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate

The most important book yet from the author of the international bestseller <i>The Shock Doctrine, </i>a brilliant explanation of why the climate crisis challenges us to abandon the core 鈥渇ree market鈥?ideology of our time, restructure the global economy, and remake our political systems.<br /><br />In short, either we embrace radical change ourselves or radical changes will be visited upon our physical world. The status quo is no longer an option.<br /> <br />In <i>This Changes Everything </i>Naomi Klein argues that climate change isn鈥檛 just another issue to be neatly filed between taxes and health care. It鈥檚 an alarm that calls us to fix an economic system that is already failing us in many ways. Klein meticulously builds the case for how massively reducing our greenhouse emissions is our best chance to simultaneously reduce gaping inequalities, re-imagine our broken democracies, and rebuild our gutted local economies. She exposes the ideological desperation of the climate-change deniers, the messianic delusions of the would-be geoengineers, and the tragic defeatism of too many mainstream green initiatives. And she demonstrates precisely why the market has not鈥攁nd cannot鈥攆ix the climate crisis but will instead make things worse, with ever more extreme and ecologically damaging extraction methods, accompanied by rampant disaster capitalism.<br /> <br />Klein argues that the changes to our relationship with nature and one another that are required to respond to the climate crisis humanely should not be viewed as grim penance, but rather as a kind of gift鈥攁 catalyst to transform broken economic and cultural priorities and to heal long-festering historical wounds. And she documents the inspiring movements that have already begun this process: communities that are not just refusing to be sites of further fossil fuel extraction but are building the next, regeneration-based economies right now.<br /> <br />Can we pull off these changes in time? Nothing is certain. Nothing except that climate change changes everything. And for a very brief time, the nature of that change is still up to us.
