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
Рейтинг 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.

The Fight for the World's Most Critical Technology
Chris Miller - 2022-10-04
Рейтинг Goodreads
Discover the new oil of the modern world - microchip technology. In "Chip War," economic historian Chris Miller explores the battle for control over this critical resource between the United States and China. With virtually everything running on chips, from missiles to microwaves, the stakes are high for military, economic, and geopolitical power. China's chip-building ambitions and military modernization threaten America's global dominance and economic prosperity. Miller explains how the semiconductor became so vital to modern life and how America became #1 in chip design and manufacturing. But with key components slipping out of America's grasp, the world faces not only a chip shortage but a new Cold War. Discover the fascinating story of the battle for chips and how it impacts our current state of technology, politics, and economics.

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
Рейтинг 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.      источник
Invisible China book cover
Invisible China
How the Urban-Rural Divide Threatens China’s Rise
Scott Rozelle - 2020-10-12
Рейтинг 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.

The Kill Chain book cover
The Kill Chain
Defending America in the Future of High-Tech Warfare
Christian Brose - 2020-04-21
Рейтинг 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.

In Tough Love, Susan Rice shares her inspiring story of a life in service to family and country. As National Security Advisor to President Obama, Rice provides an insider's account of pivotal moments in American diplomacy and foreign policy.
