9780465065691: The End of Power: From Boardrooms to Battlefields and Churches to States, Why Being in Charge Isn't What It Used to Be

Mark Zuckerberg's inaugural pick for his "Year of Books" challenge, The End of Power updates the very notion of power for the 21st century. Power, we know, is shifting: From West to East and North to South, from presidential palaces to public squares, from once formidable corporate behemoths to nimble startups and, slowly but surely, from men to women. But power is not merely dispersing; it is also decaying. Those in power today are more constrained in what they can do with it and more at risk of losing it than ever before. In The End of Power, award-winning columnist and former Foreign Policy editor Moises Naim illuminates the struggle between once-dominant megaplayers and the new micropowers challenging them in every field of human endeavor. Drawing on provocative, original research, Naim shows how the antiestablishment drive of micropowers can topple tyrants, dislodge monopolies, and open remarkable new opportunities, but it can also lead to chaos and paralysis. Naim deftly covers the seismic changes underway in business, religion, education, within families, and in all matters of war and peace. Examples abound in all walks of life: In 1977, eighty-nine countries were ruled by autocrats while today more than half the world's population lives in democracies. CEO's are more constrained and have shorter tenures than their predecessors. Modern tools of war, cheaper and more accessible, make it possible for groups like Hezbollah to afford their own drones. In the second half of 2010, the top ten hedge funds earned more than the world's largest six banks combined. Those in power retain it by erecting powerful barriers to keep challengers at bay. Today, insurgent forces dismantle those barriers more quickly and easily than ever, only to find that they themselves become vulnerable in the process. In this accessible and captivating book, Naim offers a revolutionary look at the inevitable end of power--and shows how it will change your world.

Descrizione libro Basic Books, 2014. Condizione libro: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Who is in charge? This book says nobody. The monopolies of coercion that characterised states, the potency of advanced militaries, the media organisations that controlled information, and the religious institutions that defined orthodoxy are all losing control. Readers may disagree; they will be provoked." -- Financial Times , Best of the Year "It's not just that power shifts from one country to another, from one political party to another, from one business model to another, Naim argues; it's this: "Power is decaying." --Gordon M. Goldstein, Washington Post , Notable Non-Fiction Book of the Year "A remarkable new book by the remarkable Moises Naim, the former editor of Foreign Policy . It was recommended to me by former president Bill Clinton during a brief conversation on the situation in Egypt." --Richard Cohen, Washington Post "In his new book called The End of Power , Moises Naim goes so far as to say that power is actually decaying. I actually find the argument rather persuasive." --General Martin Dempsey-Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff "I particularly enjoyed The End of Power by Moiss Naim. It is particularly relevant for big institutions like GE." --Jeff Immelt, CEO, GE "[An] altogether mind-blowing and happily convincing treatise about how ''power is becoming more feeble, transient, and constrained.''" --Nick Gillespie, Barron''s "Moiss Nam's The End of Power offers a cautionary tale to would-be Lincolns in the modern era. Nam is a courageous writer who seeks to dissect big subjects in new ways. At a time when critics of overreaching governments, big banks, media moguls and concentrated wealth decry the power of the ''1%,'' Mr. Nam argues that leaders of all types--political, corporate, military, religious, union--face bigger, more complex problems with weaker hands than in the past." --Wall Street Journal "Analytically sophisticated.[a] highly original, inter-disciplinary meditation on the degeneration of international power. The End of Power makes a truly important contribution, persuasively portraying a compelling dynamic of change cutting across multiple game-boards of the global power matrix." --Washington Post "This fascinating book.should provoke a debate about how to govern the world when more and more people are in charge." --Foreign Affairs "Nam produces a fascinating account of the way states, corporations and traditional interest groups are finding it harder to defend their redoubts. (He) makes his case with eloquence." --Financial Times " The End of Power: From Boardrooms to Battlefields and Churches to States, Why Being in Charge Isn''t What It Used to Be is a wide-ranging, stimulating romp through the last 20 years or so in search of a universal explanation for the unraveling of the well-ordered, predictable postwar world of the late 20th century." --National Catholic Reporter "A timely and timeless book." --Booklist "Having served as editor-in-chief of Foreign Policy and the executive director of the World Bank, Nam knows better than most what power on a global scale looks like. [A] timely, insightful, and eloquent message." --Publishers Weekly, Starred Review "Foreign Policy editor-in-chief Nam argues that global institutions of power are losing their ability to command respect. Whether considering institutions of government, military, religion or business, the author believes their power to be in the process of decaying. A data-packed, intriguing analysis." -- Kirkus Reviews " The End of Power will change the way you read the news, the way you think about politics, and the way you look at the world." --William Jefferson Clinton "In my own experience as president of Brazil I observed first hand many of the trends that Nam identifies in this book, but he describes them in a way that is as original as it is delightful to read. All those who have power--or want it--should read this book." --Fernando Henrique Cardoso "Moiss Nam's. Codice libro della libreria ABE_book_new_0465065694
