            Does Living Green Make a Difference? (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            Massive environmental problems threaten our planet and evoke within us a need to act - a need to do something, no matter how small, to slow the damage. But what kind of action? Businesses, governments, and environmental groups tell us that buying environmentally friendly products... while living more lightly on the planet is a winning strategy. If enough of us make these changes to our lifestyles, governments and corporations will follow suit. Environmental solutions will emerge and the planet will prosper. Michael Maniates believes that individuals can and must stop environmental destruction. But not by living green. The mantra of "buy green, live lean, save the planet" is a con: it fosters pernicious assumptions about social change, separates individuals from their real power in the world, and fuels damaging consumption. It's high time to find more rewarding and promising avenues for saving the planet. This book shows us how.

            Trump vs. China: Facing America's Greatest Threat

            Trump vs. China: Facing America's Greatest Threat (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            Every American needs to understand the threat to America's safety and prosperity posed by China's reemergence as a world power. Unlike our other economic and military rivals, China is the only country big enough and with enough human resources to compete with us everywhere in the... world. From the point of view of Beijing, China has a long history of dominating the world, and the past century of Western dominance is only a temporary blip. Their strategy to overtake America involves using spying, extortion, lawsuits, economic infiltration, intellectual property theft, propaganda and sabotage to weaken the United States and strengthen China. Gingrich's research will show that it is clear Chinese leaders are following this strategy to the letter, and that it is working as planned. It is possible for America to respond to the Chinese effort but doing so will require many big changes and hard choices for our leaders in government and private sector. That is why it is vital to build an understanding of the China challenge so there is consensus and political support to be what must be done. Newt Gingrich's TRUMP VS CHINA will serve as a rallying cry for the American people and a plan of action for our leaders in government and the private sector. Written in a language that every American can understand, but still rich in detail and accurate in fact, TRUMP VS CHINA will lay out China's multi-pronged attack against the United States and what we must do to combat it.

            The breathtaking rise of Hitler in 1933-and the making of the Nazis Amid the ravages of economic depression, Germans in the early 1930s were pulled to political extremes both left and right. Then, in the spring of 1933, Germany turned itself inside out, from a deeply divided repu...blic into a one-party dictatorship. In Hitler's First Hundred Days, award-winning historian Peter Fritzsche offers a probing account of the pivotal moments when the majority of Germans seemed, all at once, to join the Nazis to construct the Third Reich. Fritzsche examines the events of the period-the elections and mass arrests, the bonfires and gunfire, the patriotic rallies and anti-Jewish boycotts-to understand both the terrifying power the National Socialists exerted over ordinary Germans and the powerful appeal of the new era they promised. Hitler's First Hundred Days is the chilling story of the beginning of the end, when one hundred days inaugurated a new thousand-year Reich.

            In his landmark international bestsellers Guns, Germs and Steel and Collapse, Jared Diamond transformed our understanding of what makes civilizations rise and fall. Now in the third book in this monumental trilogy, he reveals how successful nations recover from crisis. Diamond sh...ows us how seven countries have survived defining upheavals in the recent past - from the forced opening up of Japan and the Soviet invasion of Finland to the Pinochet regime in Chile - through selective change, a process of painful self-appraisal and adaptation more commonly associated with personal trauma. Looking ahead to the future, he investigates whether the United States, and the world, are squandering their natural advantages and are on a devastating path towards catastrophe. Is this fate inevitable? Or can we still learn from the lessons of the past? Exhibiting the awe-inspiring grasp of history, geography, economics and anthropology that marks all Diamond's work, Upheaval reveals how both nations and individuals can become more resilient. The result is a book epic in scope, but also his most personal yet.
