American democracy just isn't good enough anymore. A costly election has done more to divide American society than unite it, while trust in government--and democracy itself--is plummeting. But there are better systems out there, and America would be wise to learn from them. In this provocative manifesto, globalization scholar Parag Khanna tours cutting-edge nations from Switzerland to Singapore to reveal the inner workings that allow them that lead the way in managing the volatility of a fast-changing world while delivering superior welfare and prosperity for their citizens. The ideal form of government for the complex 21st century is what Khanna calls a "direct technocracy," one led by experts but perpetually consulting the people through a combination of democracy and data. From a seven-member presidency and a restructured cabinet to replacing the Senate with an Assembly of Governors, Technocracy in America is full of sensible proposals that have been proven to work in the world's most successful societies. Americans have a choice for whom they elect president, but they should not wait any longer to redesign their political system following Khanna's pragmatic vision.

The countryside is in crisis. The shops are closing down in the villages, there is no school for miles around and, when they grow up, the few remaining children will escape to a less arduous life in the city. The village as we have known it for centuries must adapt to survive, but what will be lost in the process? In this book Geert Mak returns to the small Frisian village of his childhood, Jorwerd (pop. 330 and falling), and meets the present-day Jorwerders: a stubborn, stoic people for whom the flat, windswept landscape has been a source of livelihood for generations, but is now rarely more than a tourist attraction. He has tea with the butcher's wife, drops in on the pub for a beer, and recounts the stirring story of Old Peet, a farmhand who was born, lived and died in Jorwerd. Such men are an extinct species in the new free-market Europe and, with his passing, the village he lived in moved a step along the road of terminal decline. Jorwerd is not an isolated case. It is a paradigm for the changing face of the countryside everywhere in Europe. It has more in common with an English village than it has with the Dutch city of Amsterdam. Is progress always a good thing, or is modernity destroying those social values that once underpinned all our lives? Despite its travails, in Jorwerd Mak discovers a neighbourliness and sense of community that no longer exist in urban life, while ancient families struggle to preserve their long-establishedmodus vivendiin a world obsessed with money and profit.

Museums are the staging grounds of culture-a close look reveals that museums display much more than artifacts, and this perceptive tour of our collected and catalogued culture affords such a look. This book conducts us through the complex of ideas, values, and symbols that pervade and shape the practice of exhibiting that make the museum a central institution and metaphor in contemporary society. Writing from a broad range of perspectives in history, art history and criticism, critical theory, and sociology, the authors represented here go beyond previous institutional analyses to consider the museum as the intricate amalgam of architecture, history, practices and strategies of display, and pedagogical and other programs, functioning under the aegis of various governing ideologies. These essays explore the ways in which museums assign meaning to art through various kinds of exhibitions and display strategies and controlling discourses. The authors examine the political implications of these strategies and the forms of knowledge they invoke and construct, their transformations into alternative exhibition forms, and their recent involvement with the spectacular practices of mass-media culture. Certain essays also take up the question of how the museum - going public itself is constructed. Drawing on the history of museums and ranging from Western Europe to the former Soviet Union, Israel, and the United States, this book will interest historians, critics, museum professionals, students of art and critical theory, and all those concerned with our contemporary museum culture.

'One of the greatest football novels ever written and a comic masterpiece' DJ Taylor 'But is this story believable? Ah, it all depends upon whether you want it to believe it.' J.L. Carr In their new all-buttercup-yellow-stripe, Steeple Sinderby Wanderers, who usually feel lucky when their pitch is above water-level, are England's most obscure team. This uncategorizable, surreal and extremely funny novel is the story of how they start the season by ravaging the Fenland League and end it by going all the way to Wembley. Told through unreliable recollection, florid local newspaper coverage and bizarre committee minutes, How Steeple Sinderby Wanderers Won the F.A. Cup is both entertaining and moving. There will never be players again like Alex Slingsby, Sid 'the Shooting Star' Swift and the immortal milkman-turned-goalkeeper, Monkey Tonks.
