"... lucidly written and eye-opening, a timely and conscientious ringing of the bells." Yassin Al-Haj Saleh, author of Impossible Revolution: Making Sense of the Syrian Tragedy A new wave of fascism is inundating the world under the guise of rightwing populism, but the fascism this time has little to do with taking down elites-and it is every bit as dangerous as the last. Fascism can be identified by its toxic brew of racism, sexism, nationalism, and authoritarianism. It is organized around a cult of personality, and it mobilizes ressentiment in senseless acts of nihilism. Fascist movements are dangerous because they harness nationalist aggression against minorities, but their subtler danger lies in their turn against reality. They reject science and rationality because they are seen as a threat, and since the world cannot be turned off, fascists try to tear it down instead. Fascists seek to escape the burden of freedom, stemming from democracy and development, and return to a mythologized patriarchy. Yet, in a vast and complex world, where survival requires adaptation, and adaptation flexibility, their forced regression always ends in destruction. The Fascism This Time elucidates a psychosocial model of fascism which predicted that Trump's election would lead to immigrant concentration camps, an accelerated assault on democratic institutions, a striking global increase in authoritarianism and crimes against humanity, and all the starvation of Yemen. It is an original and perceptive account tying the fascism this time to the overwhelming challenges with which the world is now faced. And it is a sweeping defense of democracy, inspiring action and reflection, and sparkling with insights, in the esteemed tradition of Hannah Arendt and Alexis de Tocqueville.

The transformation of the BRIC acronym from an investment term into a household name of international politics and into a semi-institutionalized political outfit (called BRICS, with a capital 'S'), is one of the defining developments in international politics in the past decades. While the concept is now commonly used in the general public debate and international media, there has not yet been a comprehensive and scholarly analysis of the history of the BRICS term. The BRICS and the Future of Global Order, Second Edition offers a definitive reference history of the BRICS as a term and as an institution--a chronological narrative and analytical account of the BRICS concept from its inception in 2001 to the political grouping it is today. In addition, it analyzes what the rise of powers like Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa means for the future of global order. Will the BRICS countries seek to establish a parallel system with its own distinctive set of rules, institutions, and currencies of power, rejecting key tenets of liberal internationalism, are will they seek to embrace the rules and norms that define today's Western-led order?

This is the first book to go beyond globalisation. Its eminent contributors reject a fatalistic stance in the face of the problems that accelerating globalisation is throwing up. Instead, they argue that humanity must make seek to shape globalisation. In a sequence of tightly argued essays, they suggest a variety of innovative perspectives, changes, policies and institutional reforms that we ought to strive for in our increasingly inter-connected world.The exciting range of topics discussed include global governance and democratization; international finance and reform of the world economy; Third World development; the environment; the position of women; poverty and social exclusion; technology and culture; and the future shape of urban growth. Optimistic and inventionist in tone, this book provides a one-stop overview of thinking about global reform. Bristling with ideas, its new angle on globalisation brings together different domains of transformation and different disciplines, looking to a future in which humanity consciously influences, improves and humanises what may otherwise be seen as an impersonal and destructive juggernaut.

Mapping the Global Future: Report of the National Intelligence Council's 2020 Project is the third unclassified report prepared by the National Intelligence Council (NIC) in recent years that takes a long-term view of the future. It offers a fresh look at how key global trends might develop over the next decade and a half to influence world events. Mindful that there are many possible "futures," our report offers a range of possibilities and potential discontinuities, as a way of opening our minds to developments we might otherwise miss. As I used to say to my students at Princeton, linear analysis will get you a much-changed caterpillar, but it won't get you a butterfly. For that you need a leap of imagination. We hope this project, and the dialogue it stimulates, will help us make that leap --not to predict the world of 2020, which is clearly beyond our capacity-- but to better prepare for the kinds of challenges that may lie ahead. --- Robert L. Hutchings

The global economy and our way of life are based on the exploitation of fossil fuels, which not only threaten massive environmental and social disruption through global warming but, at present rates of consumption, will run out within decades, causing huge industrial dislocation and economic collapse. Even before then, the conflicts it causes in the Middle East and elsewhere will be frighteningly exacerbated. The alternative exists: renewable energy from renewable sources - above all, solar. Substituting renewable for fossil resources will take a new industrial revolution to avert the worst of the damage and establish a new international order. It can be done, and it can be done in time. The Solar Economy, by one of the world's most effective analysts and advocates, lays out the blueprints, showing how the political, economic and technological challenges can be met using indigenous, renewable and universally available resources, and the enormous opportunities and benefits that will flow from doing so.

Piketty S Plight And The Global Future

Presents a revolutionary challenge to Thomas Piketty and others attempting to come to grips with the problem of income inequality. In Capital in the Twenty-First Century, Piketty rightly takes contemporary economics to task for its preoccupation with “petty mathematical problems.” Yet despite his massive appeal to data, Piketty, like Galbraith, Mankiw, and others, is insufficiently radical to the extent that he remains trapped in muddled descriptive categories, haunted by flaws in selecting and ordering the significant data. This “is like a physicist searching data for traces of the Higgs particle without eyes laden with the standard model." McShane’s text provides an inviting glimpse of a fresh context, a new paradigm, a precise heuristic.

"In Children and Our Global Future, Herzog challenges theologians, clergy and lay church leaders, educators, and interested citizens to take children seriously. She examines the concerns for children in our biblical heritage as well as in other religious traditions, and relates these findings to our cultural, ecological, and political responsibility to children in an age of globalization. Herzog also contends that neglecting children today will not only endanger their future, but also deprive adults of spiritual and social integrity."--Jacket.
