  • The American Trap

    Frederic Pierucci

    Product Code: CBRPP
    Paperback
    In 2014, France lost part of the control of its nuclear power plants to the United States. Frederic Pierucci, former senior executive of one of Alstom's subsidiaries, found himself at the heart of this state scandal. His story goes to the very heart of a $12 billion thriller that illustrates the secret economic war that the United States is waging in Europe. And after being silenced for a long time, he has decided, with the help of journalist Matthieu Aron, to reveal all. In April 2013, Frederic was arrested in New York by the FBI and prosecuted for a bribery case, despite not being involved at all. The US authorities locked him up for more than two years - including fourteen months in a very high security prison. In doing so, they forced Alstom to pay the biggest penalty ever imposed by the United States. In the end, Alstom also gave up areas of control to General Electric, its biggest American competitor. Frederic's story unpacks how the United States is diverting the law and morality and using corporate law as an economic weapon against its own allies. One after the other, some of the world's largest companies are being actively destabilised to the benefit of the US Treasury, in acts of sabotage that seem only to be the beginning of what's to come...

    In Madam C.J. Walker Builds a Business, Sarah Breedlove (AKA Madam C.J. Walker) reinvents and rebrands herself as a forceful entrepreneur whose products still dominate the black hair care industry today. Born on the same plantation where her parents were once enslaved-Sarah is the first child in her family born free. When Sarah is just a girl, she learns the value of hard work. She cooks, she cleans, she picks cotton, she does laundry, and she babysits. By fourteen, Sarah is a wife and by eighteen she is a mother. From the stress of backbreaking labor and having to grow up so quickly, Sarah's hair begins to fall out! Instead of falling into despair, Sarah learns how to take care of her hair and invents her own recipe to encourage her hair to grow. But Sarah has a problem. She can't get people to buy her products at first. So, she rebrands herself as "Madam C.J. Walker," a fancy high society lady with the authority and know-how to help black women with their hair. As Madam C.J. Walker, she builds a business empire, dominates the black hair care market with her natural products, and offers opportunities for other poor washerwomen in her community to have a path to financial freedom. With her immense wealth, she treats herself too. She buys herself cars, fancy dresses, and a mansion with 34 rooms! This is the story of a leader in the hair care industry, which is now a multibillion-dollar industry, but it's also a tale of the importance of empowering women to become economically independent. After Words includes text on Madam C.J. Walker's lasting legacy today as well as educational activities on entrepreneurship.

  • The Debt Delusion

    John F. Weeks

    Product Code: CBRDM
    Paperback
    'Governments should spend no more than their tax income.' Most people in Europe and North America accept this statement as simple common sense. It resonates with the deeply engrained economic metaphors that dominate public discourse, from 'living within your means' to 'balancing the budget' - all necessary, or so conventional wisdom holds, to avoid the dangers of debt, taxation and financial ruin. This book shows how these homely metaphors constitute the 'debt delusion' a set of plausible-sounding yet false ideas that have been used to justify damaging austerity policies. John Weeks debunks these myths, explaining the true story behind public spending, taxation, and debt, and their real function in the management of our economies. He demonstrates that disputes about public finances are not primarily technical matters best left to specialists and experts, as many politicians would have us believe, but rather fundamentally questions about our true political priorities. Requiring no prior economic knowledge, this is an ideal primer for anyone wishing to cut through the rhetoric and misinformation that dominate political debates on economics and become an informed citizen.
  • Winning Not Fighting

    John Vincent

    Product Code: CBRCU
    Hardback
    Winning Not Fighting draws on the philosophy of Wing Tsun, an ancient Chinese martial art, to offer a profound and practical guide to achieving success at work, life and business. By explaining what these teachings reveal about decision-making, professional relationships, personal targets and positivity, it challenges some of our deepest-held assumptions and encourages us to unlearn many ideas that inform our current ideas on professional success. Why, for example, do we refer to business through a lens of conflict? Why does winning always require confrontation, competition and a loser? John Vincent and Julian Hitch challenge our ingrained assumptions about success and achievement to guide us through a path of self-cultivation using the eight wisdoms of Wing Tsun. John Vincent, the co-founder of LEON, has applied these mantras to his healthy fast-food empire with enormous success. In Winning Not Fighting, he collaborates with Wing Tsun master, Sifu Julian Hitch to sculpt this timeless wisdom into a practical and accessible guide to achieving success for your business.

  • This Could Be Our Future

    Yancey Strickler

    Product Code: CBIWU
    Paperback
    Break free from a wealth-obsessed world Western society is trapped by three assumptions- 1) the point of life is to maximize your self-interest and wealth, 2) we're individuals trapped in an adversarial world, and 3) that this path is inevitable. These ideas separate us, keep us powerless, and limit our imagination for the future. We see them as the truth, but they are just a point of view that previous generations accepted as inevitable. It's time we replace them with something new. In this bold, powerful book, Yancey Strickler - co-founder of Kickstarter - lays out an inspiring vision for a new world we have the power to create and how we can change course. While the pursuit of wealth has produced innovation and prosperity, it's also produced dire consequences- environmental collapse, corruption, exploitation, and unhappiness around the world. We don't have to get rid of money entirely, though- we can co-opt the tools we have used toward better measurement of what matters, technology, and specificity of goals--and refocus them to build a more generous, fair, and future-prepared society. By re-calibrating our definition of value, a world of scarcity can blossom into a world of abundance. Hopeful but firmly grounded, full of concrete examples and bursting with creativity, This Could Be Our Future brilliantly dissects the world we live in and shows us a road map to the world we are capable of making.

  • The Globalist

    John Walsh

    Product Code: CBHQA
    Hardback
    THE GLOBALIST is the first in-depth biography of an international power-broker who was instrumental in shaping the global economy that we know today. PETER SUTHERLAND played a defining role in world history over the past 25 years and was arguably the most influential Irish person ever to have lived. He was Ireland's youngest ever attorney general; the youngest ever European Commissioner; UN special representative for migration; and special adviser to the Vatican. His landmark achievement was the signing of the Uruguay round of multilateral trade negotiations in Marrakesh on April 15th, 1994. Under Sutherland's stewardship, a historic global agreement on the removal of trade barriers and market liberalisation was achieved, earning him a reputation as the `father of globalisation'. He became chairman of BP and Goldman Sachs International and sat on the board of some of the biggest companies in the world. Public service, however, remained his true calling. The position he most prized was President of the European Commission but a combination of domestic political tribalism and French resistance derailed his chances. Drawing on a wide range of interviews with major political and business figures, including Hank Paulson, Mickey Kantor, Pascal Lamy, Sir Tom McKillop, Mary Robinson, Bertie Ahern, Brian Cowen, Catherine Day, David O'Sullivan and Klaus Schwab, The Globalist examines key episodes in Sutherland's life and career - the Arms Trial, the introduction of the Eighth Amendment, the Anglo Irish Agreement, the development of the EU single market, the establishment of the WTO, and migration policy. Towards the end of his life Sutherland became a tireless advocate for the rights of asylum seekers and migrants, which made him a target for nativist and populist movements around the world.

  • The Narrow Corridor

    Daron Acemoglu

    Product Code: BZSAP
    Hardback
    'As enjoyable as it is thought-provoking' Jared Diamond By the authors of the international bestseller Why Nations Fail, based on decades of research, this powerful new big-picture framework explains how some countries develop towards and provide liberty while others fall to despotism, anarchy or asphyxiating norms - and explains how liberty can thrive despite new threats. Liberty is hardly the 'natural' order of things; usually states have been either too weak to protect individuals or too strong for people to protect themselves from despotism. There is also a happy Western myth that where liberty exists, it's a steady state, arrived at by 'enlightenment'. But liberty emerges only when a delicate and incessant balance is struck between state and society - between elites and citizens. This struggle becomes self-reinforcing, inducing both state and society to develop a richer array of capacities, thus affecting the peacefulness of societies, the success of economies and how people experience their daily lives. Explaining this new framework through compelling stories from around the world, in history and from today - and through a single diagram on which the development of any state can be plotted - this masterpiece helps us understand the past and present, and analyse the future. 'In this highly original and gratifying fresco, Daron Acemoglu and Jim Robinson take us on a journey through civilizations, time and locations. Their narrow corridor depicts the constant and often unstable struggle of society to keep the Leviathan in check and of the Leviathan to weaken the cage of norms. A remarkable achievement that only they could pull off and that seems destined to repeat the stellar performance of Why Nations Fail' Jean Tirole, Nobel Laureate in Economics, 2014 'Another outstanding, insightful book by Acemoglu and Robinson on the importance and difficulty of getting and maintaining a successful democratic state. Packed with examples and analysis, it is a pleasure to read' Peter Diamond, Nobel Laureate in Economics, 2010 'The Narrow Corridor takes us on a fascinating journey, across continents and through human history, to discover the critical ingredient of liberty. It finds that it's up to each of us: that ingredient is our own commitments, as citizens, to support democratic values. In these times, there can be no more important message - nor any more important book' George Akerlof, Nobel Laureate in Economics, 2001 'How should we view the current challenges facing our democracies? This brilliant, timely book offers a simple, powerful framework for assessing alternative forms of social governance. The analysis is a reminder that it takes vigilance to maintain a proper balance between the state and society - to stay in the 'narrow corridor' - and avoid falling either into statelessness or dictatorship' Bengt Holmstrom, Nobel Laureate in Economics, 2016

    Nicholas Coleridge

    Product Code: BZOLQ
    Hardback
    'I adored it. Coleridge is both self-deprecating and shrewd as he regales us with his rollicking ride as editor and tastemaker in the world of British glossy magazines: an irresistible read' Tina Brown Diana touched your elbow, your arm, covered your hand with hers. It was alluring. And she was disarmingly confiding. "Can I ask you something? Nicholas, please be frank..." Over his thirty-year career at Conde Nast, Nicholas Coleridge has witnessed it all. From the anxieties of the Princess of Wales to the blazing fury of Mohamed Al-Fayed, his story is also the story of the people who populate the glamorous world of glossy magazines. With relish and astonishing candour, he offers the inside scoop on Tina Brown and Anna Wintour, David Bowie and Philip Green, Kate Moss and Beyonce; on Margaret Thatcher's clothes legacy, and a surreal weekend away with Bob Geldof and William Hague. Cara Delevingne, media tycoons, Prime Ministers, Princes, Mayors and Maharajas - all cross his path. His career in magazines straddles the glossies throughout their glorious zenith - from the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s to the digital iterations of the 21st century. Having cut his teeth on Tatler, and as Editor-in-Chief of Harpers & Queen, he became the Mr Big of glossy publishing for three decades. Packed with surprising and often hilarious anecdotes, The Glossy Years also provides perceptive insight into the changing and treacherous worlds of fashion, journalism, museums and a whole sweep of British society. This is a rich, honest, witty and very personal memoir of a life splendidly lived. 'Coleridge writes like a dream' Observer

    Kim Moody

    Product Code: BZHPC
    Paperback
    With the rise of groups like Democratic Socialists of America and the push to form political parties to the left of the Democrats, questions often arise about why there is not a labor or socialist party tradition in America. Prominent labor historian Kim Moody tackles this question using extensive research and presents the argument that while American history has deep radical roots but because of specific migratory patterns in the late 1800's none of those roots were able to take hold in a lasting, institutionalized way. This book will appeal to activists, historians and students looking to better understand why the American political system is in many "exceptional" when compared to its European counterparts.

  • Finance and Security

    Martin S. Navias

    Product Code: BUHPB
    Hardback
    The global financial sector is increasingly vulnerable to penetration by criminal money-launderers, terrorist financiers, and proliferators of weapons of mass destruction. At the same time, it offers instruments that can be usefully employed to pursue foreign and security policy objectives. It is thus hardly surprising that finance has emerged as an arena of intense competition, if not conflict, between those seeking to exploit or attack this vital element of state power and those tasked with defending its integrity or harnessing it for legal purposes. Navias assesses the key threats to financial systems and shows how the public and private sectors are co-operating to contain them. He analyses the main characteristics of criminal money-laundering and terrorist financing, and reviews major multilateral and national regimes locked in the perpetual battle to shore up the financial sector against these constantly evolving security challenges. He also considers the uses of finance in support of key sanctions, counter-proliferation, and arms embargo policies. Uniquely, Finance and Security views these financial threats and weapons through a security and war studies prism. It will be equally invaluable to scholars of security and international relations and to professionals working in the legal, banking and compliance professions.

  • Man Out

    Andrew L. Yarrow

    Product Code: BTGLW
    Hardback
    The story of men who are hurting-and hurting America by their absence Man Out describes the millions of men on the sidelines of life in the United States. Many of them have been pushed out of the mainstream because of an economy and society where the odds are stacked against them; others have chosen to be on the outskirts of twenty-first-century America. These men are disconnected from work, personal relationships, family and children, and civic and community life. They may be angry at government, employers, women, and ""the system"" in general-and millions of them have done time in prison and have cast aside many social norms. Sadly, too many of these men are unsure what it means to be a man in contemporary society. Wives or partners reject them; children are estranged from them; and family, friends, and neighbors are embarrassed by them. Many have disappeared into a netherworld of drugs, alcohol, poor health, loneliness, misogyny, economic insecurity, online gaming, pornography, other off-the-grid corners of the internet, and a fantasy world of starting their own business or even writing the Great American novel. Most of the men described in this book are poorly educated, with low incomes and often with very few prospects for rewarding employment. They are also disproportionately found among millennials, those over 50, and African American men. Increasingly, however, these lost men are discovered even in tony suburbs and throughout the nation. It is a myth that men on the outer corners of society are only lower-middle-class white men dislocated by technology and globalization. Unlike those who primarily blame an unjust economy, government policies, or a culture sanctioning ""laziness,"" Man Out explores the complex interplay between economics and culture. It rejects the politically charged dichotomy of seeing such men as either victims or culprits. These men are hurting, and in turn they are hurting families and hurting America. It is essential to address their problems. Man Out draws on a wide range of data and existing research as well as interviews with several hundred men, women, and a wide variety of economists and other social scientists, social service providers and physicians, and with employers, through a national online survey and in-depth fieldwork in several communities.
  • An Introduction to International Trade

    Geoffrey Darnton

    Product Code: BSYXW
    Paperback
    Global trade is a core topic for many business and management programmes. Lecturers and students need one key textbook that addresses the main issues involved in global and international trade and gives examples illustrating key points and discussions that are based on solid critical or comparative thinking. An Introduction to International Trade fulfils this need by covering the whole scope of global trade in terms of products and services. An Introduction to International Trade is a textbook that looks at the 'dark' sides of global trade, illegal and mixed legal-illegal, which in some cases are larger than many classes of legitimate global trade. The book also looks at the business and management aspects of global trade, such as marketing, strategic and operational issues, international distribution, real and virtual transportation, financial issues, documentation and risk management. This essential handbook provides an analysis of the new communication technologies and covers the variations and nuances needed when dealing with multiple countries.

    Stanley C. Jenkins

    Product Code: BQYRL
    Paperback
    The city of Oxford has a long and prosperous history. First mentioned by name in 912 as one of the 'burghs' or fortified places that King Alfred and his descendants had constructed to protect Wessex from the Vikings, Oxford has played a significant part in many of the great historical events that have shaped the country. In the twelfth century the University of Oxford began to take shape, establishing the city as a centre of learning, which remains today. Oxford At Work explores the life of this 'City of Dreaming Spires' and its people. In a fascinating series of contemporary photographs and illustrations it takes us from the founding of St Frideswide's nunnery in the sixth century and the emergence of its university in the late twelfth century - the first in the English-speaking world - through its growth and development as one of the country's leading centres of education, science, publishing and motor manufacturing, to its current status as one of the fastest growing and ethnically diverse cities in the UK.
