By More Than Providence
Grand Strategy and American Power in the Asia Pacific Since 1783 (A Nancy Bernkopf Tucker and Warren I. Cohen Book on American–East Asian Relations)
Michael Green - 2017-04-04
Calificación de Goodreads
This historical book explores the United States' evolving policy towards East Asia, dating back to the 18th century. From early debates about partnering with China or Japan, to modern concerns about defending the Pacific, the author uncovers recurring themes in American statecraft. Drawing on archives and interviews, he focuses on a central fear: that a rival power might use the Pacific to isolate and threaten the United States, preventing trade and the spread of democracy. Follow the ideas of history's major strategists and statesmen, including Mahan and Kissinger, to gain clarity on America's stake in the region.

La guerra de los chips book cover
La guerra de los chips
La gran lucha por el dominio mundial
Chris Miller - 2022-10-04
Calificación de Goodreads
PREMIO BUSINESS BOOK OF THE YEAR DEL FINANCIAL TIMES MEJOR LIBRO DEL AÑO SEGÚN THE ECONOMIST BEST SELLER DE THE NEW YORK TIMES El libro del año. Define el fin de la era de la globalización y explica el mayor conflicto geopolítico desde la guerra fría. Si hay un conflicto que está definiendo ahora mismo la geopolítica mundial es la guerra de los chips. Todas las tecnologías actuales, de los misiles a los microondas, de los smartphones a los coches, funcionan con semiconductores. La economía mundial, el equilibrio de poderes, la supremacía militar y el desarrollo industrial dependen de su producción constante. Hasta hace poco, Estados Unidos era el principal productor de semiconductores, lo que le permitía mantener su liderazgo como primera superpotencia mundial. Sin embargo, su posición dominante se ve cada vez más amenazada por competidores de Taiwán, Corea, Europa y, sobre todo, China, que inyecta anualmente miles de millones en un programa de fabricación de procesadores con el fin de alcanzar a su competidor estadounidense. No solo está en juego la prosperidad económica de Estados Unidos, sino también su superioridad militar. Chris Miller muestra cómo los microprocesadores han revolucionado el mundo y cambiado el curso de la Historia, y cómo la lucha por esta tecnología podría conducir no solo a su escasez mundial, sino también al nacimiento de una nueva Guerra Fría con una superpotencia hostil desesperada por cubrir la brecha que la separa de su rival. Esclarecedor, pertinente y cautivador, La guerra de los chips es una obra esencial para entender el papel vital de esta tecnología en la situación política y económica actual y el futuro que nos espera.

Rewriting the Rules of the American Economy book cover
Rewriting the Rules of the American Economy
An Agenda for Growth and Shared Prosperity
Joseph E. Stiglitz - 2015-11-02
Calificación de Goodreads
This book tackles the prevalent issue of economic inequality in America - a country that prides itself on being the land of opportunity. Despite this, the US lags behind developed nations when it comes to measures of inequality and economic mobility. Author Joseph E. Stiglitz debunks the common belief that these stark conditions are inevitable consequences of market outcomes, globalization, and technological progress. He argues that American inequality is a result of misguided structural rules that actually stifle economic growth. This book provides valuable insights on the policies that need to change to encourage greater equality without sacrificing growth.
Michael McFaul
+1. Great book. ReWriting the Rules of the American Economy by @JosephEStiglitz is also worth a read. One might not always agree with Stiglitz (although I often do) but he always makes you think.      fuente
Invisible China book cover
Invisible China
How the Urban-Rural Divide Threatens China’s Rise
Scott Rozelle - 2020-10-12
Calificación de Goodreads
Invisible China delves into the real economic consequences of China's rapid development, shedding light on the country's overreliance on unskilled labor and its potential for an economic crisis. Authors Scott Rozelle and Natalie Hell draw on extensive surveys on the ground, revealing that while China may be the world's second-largest economy, its labor force has one of the lowest levels of education of any comparable country. The book speaks not only to an urgent humanitarian concern but also a potential economic crisis that could upend economies and foreign relations around the globe. This timely call to action is essential reading for economists, policymakers, the business community, and general readers alike.

Those convinced that think China’s rise will continue smoothly and inevitably need to read this book - Invisible China      fuente
The Kill Chain book cover
The Kill Chain
Defending America in the Future of High-Tech Warfare
Christian Brose - 2020-04-21
Calificación de Goodreads
"The Kill Chain" by Christian Brose highlights how new technologies are threatening America's military might. It emphasizes that the future of war is not about buying better versions of the same military systems; instead, it is about buying faster, better kill chains. Former Staff Director for the Senate Armed Services Committee and senior policy advisor to Senator John McCain, Christian Brose elaborates on one of the greatest strategic predicaments facing America now -- that they are playing a losing game. The book emphasizes that the biggest obstacle to adapting is the sheer force of the status quo.
