´I pictured myself a wine-dark streak in a TV desert, ears too full of the summer wind to hear that ominous ticking in the sky: the sound of a cultural clock counting me out of youth.´ Briohny Doyle turned 30 without a clear idea of what her adult life should look like. The world she lived in, with its global economic uncertainty, political conservatism and precarious employment conditions, didn´t match the one her parents grew up in. Every day she read editorials about how her millennial cohort - dubbed the ´Peter Pan generation´ - were reluctant to embrace the traditional markers of adulthood: a stable job, a house in the suburbs, a nuclear family. But do these emblems of maturity mean the same thing today as they did 30 years ago? In a smart and spirited enquiry, Doyle examines whether millennials are redefining what it means to be an adult today. Blending personal essay and cultural critique, she ventures into the big claims of philosophy and the neon buzz of pop culture to ask: in a rapidly changing world, do the so-called adult milestones distract us from other measures of maturity? 1.

This newly-updated edition of Contemporary Japan has been expanded to include considered analysis of the cataclysmic earthquake and tsunami of March 2011 and their aftermath. Kingston sets the nation´s current challenges in the context of events since the 1980s, when rampant speculation created an economic bubble that, when it burst, plunged the country into prolonged stagnation as housing and share prices imploded and public debt surged. This volume remains a superb guide to recent events in Japan, written by one of the foremost authorities on the history and politics of the region. The second edition of this comprehensive study of recent Japanese history now includes the author´s expert assessment of the effects of the earthquake and tsunami, including the political and environmental consequences of the Fukushima reactor meltdown. * Fully updated to include a detailed assessment of the aftermath of the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami * Shows how the nuclear crisis at Fukushima was an accident waiting to happen * Includes detailed discussion of Japan´s energy policy, now in flux after the mishandling of the Fukushima crisis * Analyzes Japan´s ´Lost Decades´, why jobs and families are less stable, environmental policies, immigration, the aging society, the US alliance, the imperial family, and the ´yakuza´ criminal gangs * Authoritative coverage of Japanese history over the last two decades, one of the country´s most tumultuous periods
´´Speak softly and carry a big stick´´, Theodore Roosevelt famously said in 1901 when the United States was emerging as a great power. It was the right sentiment, perhaps, in an age of imperial rivalry. But today many Americans doubt the utility of their global military presence, thinking it outdated, unnecessary, or even dangerous. In The Big Stick, Eliot A. Cohen - a scholar and practitioner of international relations - disagrees. He argues that hard power remains essential for American foreign policy. While acknowledging that the United States must be careful about why, when, and how it uses force, he insists that its international role is as critical as ever, and armed force is vital to that role. Cohen explains that American leaders must learn to use hard power in new ways and for new circumstances. The rise of a well-armed China, Russia´s conquest of Crimea and Eastern Ukraine, nuclear threats from North Korea and Iran, and the spread of radical Islamist movements like ISIS are some of the key threats to global peace. If the United States relinquishes its position as a strong but prudent military power and fails to accept its role as the guardian of a stable world order, we run the risk of unleashing disorder, violence, and tyranny on a scale not seen since the 1930s. The United States is still, as Madeleine Albright once dubbed it, ´´the indispensable nation´´. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bill Thatcher.

An examination of a world increasingly defined by disorder and a United States unable to shape the world in its image, from the president of the Council on Foreign Relations. Things fall apart; the center cannot hold. The rules, policies, and institutions that have guided the world since World War II have largely run their course. Respect for sovereignty alone cannot uphold order in an age defined by global challenges from terrorism and the spread of nuclear weapons to climate change and cyberspace. Meanwhile, great power rivalry is returning. Weak states pose problems just as confounding as strong ones. The United States remains the world´s strongest country, but American foreign policy has at times made matters worse, both by what the US has done and by what it has failed to do. The Middle East is in chaos; Asia is threatened by China´s rise and a reckless North Korea; and Europe, for decades the world´s most stable region, is now anything but. The unexpected vote for ´´Brexit´´ signals that many in modern democracies reject important aspects of globalization, including borders open to trade and immigrants. In A World in Disarray, Richard Haass argues for an updated global operating system - call it world order 2.0 - that reflects the reality that power is widely distributed and that borders count for less. One critical element of this adjustment will be adopting a new approach to sovereignty, one that embraces its obligations and responsibilities as well as its rights and protections. Haass also details how the US should act toward China and Russia as well as in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. He suggests, too, what the country should do to address its dysfunctional politics, mounting debt, and lack of agreement on the nature of its relationship with the world. A World in Disarray is a wise examination, one rich in history, of the current world along with how we got here and what needs doing. Haass shows tha... 1. Language: English.
