Set in Greenwich Village, Harlem, and France, among other locales, Another Country is a novel of passions—sexual, racial, political, artistic. Stunning for its emotional intensity and haunting sensuality, this "brilliantly and fiercely told" book (The New York Times) depicts men and women, blacks and whites, stripped of their masks of gender and race by love and hatred at the most elemental and sublime. Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read

Book Short Summary:

Depicted as an insular and forbidding police state with an “insane” dictator at its helm, North Korea—charter member of Bush’s “Axis of Evil”—is a country the U.S. loves to hate. Now the CIA says it possesses nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons, as well as long-range missiles capable of delivering them to America’s West Coast. But, as Bruce Cumings demonstrates in this provocative, lively read, the story of the U.S.-Korea conflict is more complex than our leaders or our news media would have us believe. Drawing on his extensive knowledge of Korea, and on declassified government reports, Cumings traces that story, from the brutal Korean War to the present crisis. Harboring no illusions regarding the totalitarian Kim Jong Il regime, Cumings nonetheless insists on a more nuanced approach. The result is both a counter-narrative to the official U.S. and North Korean versions and a fascinating portrayal of North Korea, a country that suffers through foreign invasions, natural disasters, and its own internal contradictions, yet somehow continues to survive.

Book Short Summary:

James Boyer's impressive life story - editor of the first newspaper in Ontario's northern districts, homesteading farmer, schoolteacher, town clerk of Bracebridge for decades, Methodist choir director, Muskoka district magistrate from 1878 to 1900 - is well documented in books and newspaper features. Behind his noteworthy Canadian life, however, lurked the haunting shadow of another. Isaac Jelfs, a young English clerk, became scapegoat for a Stratford law office scandal. In Birmingham the desperate Jelfs married, believing the older woman was pregnant by him. Unemployed, he tried to start over as a soldier with the Dragoon Guards in the Crimean War. As a deserter who escaped that mad slaughter to New York, he joined a major Broadway Avenue firm, fell in love with another woman, and fled to Canada with her and their love child to begin yet another new life, this time as Muskoka pioneer "James Boyer."

Book Short Summary:

Winner of the Overseas Press Club of America's Cornelius Ryan Award • Finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Nonfiction A New York Times Book Review Notable Book • Named a Best Book of the Year by New York Magazine and The Progressive "A deeply honest and brave portrait of of an individual sensibility reckoning with her country's violent role in the world." —Hisham Matar, The New York Times Book Review In the wake of the September 11 attacks and the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, Suzy Hansen, who grew up in an insular conservative town in New Jersey, was enjoying early success as a journalist for a high-profile New York newspaper. Increasingly, though, the disconnect between the chaos of world events and the response at home took on pressing urgency for her. Seeking to understand the Muslim world that had been reduced to scaremongering headlines, she moved to Istanbul. Hansen arrived in Istanbul with romantic ideas about a mythical city perched between East and West, and with a naïve sense of the Islamic world beyond. Over the course of her many years of living in Turkey and traveling in Greece, Egypt, Afghanistan, and Iran, she learned a great deal about these countries and their cultures and histories and politics. But the greatest, most unsettling surprise would be what she learned about her own country—and herself, an American abroad in the era of American decline. It would take leaving her home to discover what she came to think of as the two Americas: the country and its people, and the experience of American power around the world. She came to understand that anti-Americanism is not a violent pathology. It is, Hansen writes, “a broken heart . . . A one-hundred-year-old relationship.” Blending memoir, journalism, and history, and deeply attuned to the voices of those she met on her travels, Notes on a Foreign Country is a moving reflection on America’s place in the world. It is a powerful journey of self-discovery and revelation—a profound reckoning with what it means to be American in a moment of grave national and global turmoil.

Book Short Summary:

Award-winning author of Under the Feet of Jesus, Helena María Viramontes offers a profoundly gritty portrait of everyday life in L.A. in this lyrically muscular, artfully crafted novel. In the barrio of East Los Angeles, a group of unbreakable young women struggle to find their way through the turbulent urban landscape of the 1960s. Androgynous Turtle is a homeless gang member. Ana devotes herself to a mentally ill brother. Ermila is a teenager poised between childhood and political consciousness. And Tranquilina, the daughter of missionaries, finds hope in faith. In prose that is potent and street tough, Viramontes has choreographed a tragic dance of death and rebirth. Julia Alvarez has called Viramontes "one of the important multicultural voices of American literature." Their Dogs Came with Them further proves the depth and talent of this essential author. Helena María Viramontes is the acclaimed author of The Moths and Other Stories and Under the Feet of Jesus, a novel; and the coeditor, with María Herrera-Sobek, of two collections: Chicana (W)Rites: On Word and Film and Chicana Creativity and Criticism. She is the recipient of the 2006 Luis Leal Award and the John Dos Passos Award for Literature, and her short stories and essays have been widely anthologized and adopted for classroom use and university study. Viramontes lives in Ithaca, New York, where she is a professor in the Department of English at Cornell University.

Book Short Summary:

From First Communions to CIÉ Mystery Tours – the heartwarming story of award-winning journalist Gene Kerrigan’s childhood in Dublin in the ’50s In his highly addictive style, Gene Kerrigan effortlessly reconstructs the Ireland of the 1950s and early ’60s in which he grew up. An adult world of absolute moral certainties, casual cruelties and mass emigration; for children an age of innocence, but an innocence hemmed in by fear and guilt. In this brilliant and humorous memoir, Kerrigan tells of a world that now seems as distant as another country. Into the details of school, street and family life, of Christmas, First Communion, school violence, CIE Mystery Tours and the arrival of television are woven the political background of the day and recollections of the impact of major figures: Michael O Hehir, Seán Lemass, Eamon ‘Dev’ De Valera, JFK, not to mention Hector Grey, Shane, Davy Crockett and Audie Murphy. It’s a compelling, touching and often very funny account of a happy childhood in a country that was itself far from happy.

Book Short Summary:

Migration is a powerful driver and important consequence of economic, political and social change, and there fore needs to be adequately measured and understood. However, the improvement of statistical systems to measure migration has been a slow process because of weak coordination between migration statistics producers, discrepancies in the applied definitions, and challenges related to data collection. The objective of this handbook is to guide statisticians and other professionals in producing and using data on international migration from administrative sources and household surveys in the CIS region. It describes the key concepts and definitions for the measurement of international migration. It also provides practical information on the sources of administrative data and their use, and highlights the related methodological and organizational challenges.

Book Short Summary:

Stephen Tallman has put together an excellent tome by high-quality emerging scholars that provides cutting edge knowledge on the field of international strategy. The coverage is thorough, including more traditional topics such as the outcomes of internationalization (e.g., performance, innovation, risk reduction) and market entry modes of cross-border M&As and alliances, while also exploring unique and important topics such as investment in global cities and the development of new organizational forms. It is a must read for graduate students and scholars interested in international strategy. Michael A. Hitt, Texas A&M University, US This book comprises eighteen cutting edge chapters by emerging scholars in international strategy, offering a variety of fresh perspectives on critical issues that the field will face in the near future. These young scholars have unique and innovative thoughts about international strategy, which are well ahead of the mainstream of international business academics. Various topics are addressed, including the rise of outsourcing and the global spread of research and development activities; structural innovations by multinational firms, with particular attention to organizing for the efficient transfer of knowledge resources within networks of alliances; and new ways of considering the effects of location, focusing on the relative importance of regional clusters and countries and the impact of geographical and cultural distance on international strategies. Stephen Tallman has geared the book to an academic audience, specifically faculty and graduate students in international business, international management, and global strategy. Sophisticated international business practitioners will also find it an interesting read.

Book Short Summary:

This book, in its second edition, introduces readers to the economics of immigration, which is a booming field within economics. The main themes and objectives of the book are for readers to understand the decision to migrate, the impacts of immigration on markets and government budgets and the consequences of immigration policies in a global context. Our goal is for readers to be able to make informed economic arguments about key issues related to immigration around the world. This book applies economic tools to the topic of immigration to answer questions like whether immigration raises or lowers the standard of living of people in a country. The book examines many other consequences of immigration as well, such as the effect on tax revenues and government expenditures, the effect on how and what firms decide to produce and the effect on income inequality, to name just a few. It also examines questions like what determines whether people choose to move and where they decide to go. It even examines how immigration affects the ethnic diversity of restaurants and financial markets. Readers will learn how to apply economic tools to the topic of immigration. Immigration is frequently in the news as more people move around the world to work, to study and to join family members. The economics of immigration has important policy implications. Immigration policy is controversial in many countries. This book explains why this is so and equips the reader to understand and contribute to policy debates on this important topic.

Book Short Summary:

When you live among slanderers you learn not to think or be like them. Not everyone lives in Equatorial Guinea in a hurry to steal and go live abroad, and that is why those who slander do it with the misuse of their bad imagination. When I write about my country, I do so with the peace of mind that I do not have any secret account or any hidden assets abroad bought with public money, like most of the Equatoguinean sons of the People, with whom I always identify myself. Since always, those inside and those outside, have tried to invent any movie about me, because they do not know me at all and I do not frequent groups of fools and I do not want to meet them either, because I know them all well enough from afar. Not everyone is here to waste time or to talk about things that contribute nothing to the socio-economic, industrial and technological development of our country, my Guinea. Politics is a very convenient excuse for those who do not know how to do anything else but slander, steal and hide, and for those who want to do the same afterwards. That is why in my opinion, the poor (as is the case of most of our population in terms of their purchasing power compared to the cost of living) must always be given the reason even if they do not have it, because everything else is already being taken away from them, which is their real wealth. And I always reiterate that if a government does not make its people rich and prosperous, it is not because it cannot, but because it does not want to or does not know how; and I am not saying it, Confucius is saying it, and he is not wrong. The true wealth of a country is measured in the level of satisfaction of its population and not only in festive moments or in bars. Socioeconomic satisfaction creates political stability, socioeconomic dissatisfaction creates political instability: there has never been any state, country or region that has had political stability with socioeconomic dissatisfaction. As long as we do not understand this, we will continue to jump, dance and sing, and drink beers, but we will not create a different history if we do not do things differently: as a different country. This endeavor to create poverty in Africa by force is the stupidest system of creating problems for oneself, i.e., self-sabotage. It gets murkier when the governed people get used to being spoon fed directly into their mouths, creating a chronic dependency on subsidies and anything of the same nature. But when you assert, condemn, criticize, point out and even ridicule all the efforts made in the country to overcome underdevelopment it is simply because you have no idea what it takes to build a Nation. When I write about my country, Equatorial Guinea, I do so with all the tranquility of someone who knows he owes nothing to anyone, like many in my country. It is very easy to talk for the sake of talking when you do not know how to do anything, and that is what is called ''doing politics'' in Equatorial Guinea. I recommend those who do not know how to do anything and just talk for the sake of talking to first learn something productive for themselves and for the country, and then if they want and have nothing to do, instead of doing nothing better write something, who knows, maybe they will manage to fix their world. That is the difference between wisdom and necessity, between those who think and those who only invent, and that is one of the defects that affect the development of our small country: ''everybody is an expert in everything, but nobody is a specialist in anything, much less in practice.'' Experience makes a person an expert or not in a subject. No one is born knowing everything, just as no one becomes an expert in anything overnight. One of the real problems in developing countries is that everything is left to the last minute, and inexperience is the mother of all failures. This is the first volume of the Handbook for Trade and Entrepreneurship in Equatorial Guinea. Thank you for reading these lines. Javier Clemente Engonga,

Book Short Summary:

INSTANT #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER The former attorney general provides a candid account of his historic tenures serving two vastly different presidents, George H.W. Bush and Donald J. Trump. William Barr’s first tenure as attorney general under President George H.W. Bush was largely the result of chance, while his second tenure under President Donald Trump a deliberate and difficult choice. In this candid memoir, Barr takes readers behind the scenes during seminal moments of the 1990s, from the LA riots to Pan Am 103 and Iran Contra. Thirty years later, Barr faced an unrelenting barrage of issues, such as Russiagate, the COVID outbreak, civil unrest, the impeachments, and the 2020 election fallout. One Damn Thing After Another is vivid, forthright, and essential not only to understanding the Bush and Trump legacies, but also how both men viewed power and justice at critical junctures of their presidencies.

Book Short Summary:

This book provides deep insight into the flow of foreign direct investment from Asia to Europe. It assesses the topic of trade and investment from the reverse direction, considering Asian countries as the capital investors in the EU countries. Each chapter analyses either the international trade or investment of one or more Asian countries in correlation with one or more European states. The book analyses a significant number of countries, which are included in various economic associations, such as the Visegrad Group, the Three Seas Initiative, the European Free Trade Association, or are states from the same geopolitical region – for instance, the Iberian Peninsula, Baltic States, and Nordic countries. It examines Indian outward foreign direct investment trends in the UK before and after Brexit, based on select case studies, to emphasize the impact of Brexit, as well as to encourage trade and investment among Asian and European countries before and during COVID-19, to highlight the influence of the pandemic on the target country’s economy. The authors use a variety of analytical methods in the book, such as numerical presentations, econometric analysis, descriptive statistical analysis, an examination of time-series dynamics, the modelling of functions, and semi-structured interviews with company executives. The regional perspectives bring new and useful insights to the topic, and the case study approach allows for a wider exploration of the research questions as well as their theoretical evolution. The book provides a "big picture" for economists, researchers, business analysts, and PhD students of economics, international trade, and business.
