Right Here Right Now Book Description :

"In this brilliant and timely new book, Stephen Harper, the 22nd prime minister of Canada, rallies his fellow conservatives at home, in the United States, and around the world to understand and adapt to the often contradictory movements of globalization and populism. The world is in flux. Disruptive technologies, ideas, and politicians are challenging how we thought about the economy, society, and politics. How we respond matters greatly. We must get it right for our long-term stability, social cohesion, and prosperity. Some voices propose that we look the other way and double down on the status quo. Others propose radical change to public policy, governance, and our societies. Neither effectively responds to the growing concerns expressed by working...

Disrupted Cities Book Description :

Bringing together leading researchers from geography, political science, sociology, public policy and technology studies, Disrupted Cities exposes the politics of well-known disruptions such as devastation of New Orleans in 2005, the global SARS outbreak in 2002-3, and the great power collapse in the North Eastern US in 2003. But the book also excavates the politics of more hidden disruptions: the clogging of city sewers with fat; the day-to-day infrastructural collapses which dominate urban life in much of the global south; the deliberate devastation of urban infrastructure by state militaries; and the ways in which alleged threats of infrastructural disruption have been used to radically reorganize cities as part of the ‘war on terror’.

Leap Book Description :

Every business faces the existential threat of competitors producing cheaper copies. Even patent filings, market dominance and financial resources can't shield them from copycats. So what can we do--and, what can we learn from companies that have endured and even prospered for centuries despite copycat competition? In a book of narrative history and practical strategy, IMD professor of management and innovation Howard Yu shows that succeeding in today's marketplace is no longer just a matter of mastering copycat tactics, companies also need to leap across knowledge disciplines, and to reimagine how a product is made or a service is delivered. This proven tactic can protect a company from being overtaken by new (and often foreign) copycat competitors....
