Wartime book cover
Milovan Djilas - 1980-09-22 (впервые опубликовано в 1977)
Рейтинг Goodreads
Leadership during wartime is a complex and challenging topic, but this account of the partisan campaign in Yugoslavia during World War II offers unique insights from a key leader of Tito's forces. With an index and photographs to supplement the vivid writing, this translated work is a must-read for history buffs and those interested in the intricacies of military strategy.

I have read it before. Djilas was an extraordinary writer, pitiless military commander, and a statesman. I read his books in English (they were not published in Yugoslavia) & I would suggest to everybody "Memoirs of a Revolutionary" (emotional), "Wartime" (hyper realistic),      источник

Memoir of a revolutionary
Milovan Djilas - 1973-07-01
Рейтинг Goodreads
"Now I felt that the world was so clear to me that I would be able to influence its destiny." That is the spirit of the 1930's, the period Milovan Djilas describes in "Memoir of a Revolutionary." He became a communist when the Communist movement in Yugoslavia was growing into the force that eventually gave form to modern Yugoslavia. Determined and ...

Антихрупкость book cover
Things That Gain from Disorder (Incerto)
Nassim Nicholas Taleb - 2012-11-27
Рейтинг Goodreads
«Антихрупкость» — книга уникальная: она рассказывает о ключевом свойстве людей, систем, о свойстве, у которого до сих пор не было названия. В мире, где царит неопределенность, нельзя желать большего, чем быть антихрупким, то есть уметь при столкновении с хаосом жизни не просто оставаться невредимым, но и становиться лучше прежнего, эволюционировать, развиваться. Талеб формулирует простые правила, которые позволяют нам преодолеть хрупкость и действовать так, чтобы непредсказуемая неопределенность, этот грозный и внезапный Черный лебедь, не причинил нам вреда – и более того, чтобы эта редкая и сильная птица помогла нам совершенствоваться. «Антихрупкость» — это мудрый оракул, помогающий каждому из нас сориентироваться в собственном будущем. Здесь виртуозно переплетены такие темы, как принятие жизненно важных решений, метод проб и ошибок, оценка риска, инновации, политика, образование, война, личные финансы, экономические системы и медицина.

Antifragile by @nntaleb is, I thought when I read it & I think even more now, a book that anyone concerned with complexity, robustness, extreme events & thus with globalization, supply chains, epidemics, invasions and balloons should read.      источник

Рейтинг Goodreads
Explore the tragedy of the Vietnam War through the lens of America's flawed policy makers in this enthralling masterpiece.

Magnificently written and considered the definitive volume on the subject, this American classic is a must-read for anyone seeking to understand this pivotal moment in history.
Branko Milanovic
I am reading on vacation David Helberstam's "The Best and the Brightest". It's an excellent book; super well researched, often ironic, with a wealth of unknown details. Here is Rostow, the originator of the theory of Third World Dev't, the ideological father of the World Bank.      источник

Insatiable Appetites from Machiavelli to Madison
David Wootton - 2018-10-08
Рейтинг Goodreads
Explore the evolution of Western thought on power, pleasure, and profit over four centuries with this insightful book. David Wootton demonstrates how religious conflict and the Scientific Revolution led to new ideas about politics, ethics, and economics. As the emphasis on godliness and Aristotelian virtue lessened, rational pursuit of personal gain rose to prominence. Discover the fascinating historical developments that shape our contemporary values.
Branko Milanovic
Thinking of Adam Smith today, I thought I would recommend this book. I found it erudite without being pretentious, well-written without using complex phraseology, enlightening without being over-bearing.      источник
The Triumph of Broken Promises book cover
The Triumph of Broken Promises
The End of the Cold War and the Rise of Neoliberalism
Fritz Bartel - 2022-06-28
Рейтинг Goodreads
Discover a pathbreaking study that explores the link between the end of the Cold War and the rise of neoliberalism. In "The Triumph of Broken Promises," Fritz Bartel argues that the economic shocks of the 1970s forced governments to impose austerity on their own people, making promises of better living untenable. This book traces the pressure to break promises that spurred the end of the Cold War and the rise of neoliberalism around the world. A must-read for anyone interested in understanding the forces that shaped our modern political and economic landscape.
Branko Milanovic
An excellent book with a ground-breaking methodological approach to the period of 1970s-1980s.      источник
