1. The Kill Chain: Defending America in the Future of High-Tech Warfare
Author: by Christian Brose
For generations of Americans, our country has been the world’s dominant military power. How the US military fights, and the systems and weapons that it fights with, have been uncontested. That old reality, however, is rapidly deteriorating. America’s traditional sources of power are eroding amid the emergence of new technologies and the growing military threat posed by rivals such as China.
America is at grave risk of losing a future war. As Christian Brose reveals in this urgent wake-up call, the future will be defined by artificial intelligence, autonomous systems, and other emerging technologies that are revolutionizing global industries and are now poised to overturn the model of American defense.
This fascinating, if disturbing, book confronts the existential risks on the horizon, charting a way for America’s military to adapt and succeed with new thinking as well as new technology. America must build a battle network of systems that enables people to rapidly understand threats, make decisions, and take military actions, the process known as “the kill chain.” Examining threats from China, Russia, and elsewhere, The Kill Chain offers hope and, ultimately, insights on how America can apply advanced technologies to prevent war, deter aggression, and maintain peace.

Its cultural, economic, and political dominance is utterly astonishing and unique in world history.Viewing the Italy?The many Italies? Of that time through the lens of today allows us to gather a fragmented, multi-faceted, and seemingly contradictory history into a single unifying narrative that speaks to our current reality as much as it does to a specific historical period.
This is what the acclaimed French historian, Fernand Braudel, achieves here. He brings to life the two extraordinary centuries that span the Renaissance, Mannerism, and the Baroque and analyzes the complex interaction between art, science, politics, and commerce during Italy’s extraordinary cultural flowering.

In this compelling story of lies, greed and tarnished idealism, two Wall Street Journal reporters investigate a man who Bill Gates, Western governments, and other investors entrusted with billions of dollars to make profits and end poverty, but who now stands accused of masterminding one of the biggest, most brazen financial frauds ever.

Author: by Quinn Slobodian
George Louis Beer Prize WinnerWallace K. Ferguson Prize FinalistA Marginal Revolution Book of the YearA groundbreaking contributionIntellectual history at its best. Stephen Wertheim, Foreign AffairsNeoliberals hate the state.Or do they? In the first intellectual history of neoliberal globalism, Quinn Slobodian follows a group of thinkers from the ashes of the Habsburg Empire to the creation of the World Trade Organization to show that neoliberalism emerged less to shrink government and abolish regulations than to redeploy them at a global level.
It was a project that changed the world, but was also undermined time and again by the relentless change and social injustice that accompanied it. Slobodian’s lucidly written intellectual history traces the ideas of a group of Western thinkers who sought to create, against a backdrop of anarchy, globally applicable economic rules.
Their attempt, it turns out, succeeded all too well.

13. Coffeeland: One Man's Dark Empire and the Making of Our Favorite Drug
Author: by Augustine Sedgewick
A New York Times Book Review Editors’ ChoiceExtremely wide-ranging and well researched … In a tradition of protest literature rooted more in William Blake than in Marx. Adam Gopnik, The New Yorker The epic story of how coffee connected and divided the modern world Coffee is an indispensable part of daily life for billions of people around the world.
But few coffee drinkers know this story. It centers on the volcanic highlands of El Salvador, where James Hill, born in the slums of Manchester, England, founded one of the world’s great coffee dynasties at the turn of the twentieth century.
Adapting the innovations of the Industrial Revolution to plantation agriculture, Hill helped turn El Salvador into perhaps the most intensive monoculture in modern historya place of extraordinary productivity, inequality, and violence. In the process, both El Salvador and the United States earned the nickname Coffeeland, but for starkly different reasons, and with consequences that reach into the present.
14. A Question of Power: Electricity and the Wealth of Nations
Author: by Robert Bryce
Historically, it was guns, germs, and steel that determined the fates of people and nations. Now, more than ever, it is electricity. Global demand for power is doubling every two decades, but electricity remains one of the most difficult forms of energy to supply and do so reliably.
Today, some three billion people live in places where per-capita electricity use is less than what’s used by an average American refrigerator. How we close the colossal gap between the electricity rich and the electricity poor will determine our success in addressing issues like women’s rights, inequality, and climate change.
In A Question of Power, veteran journalist Robert Bryce tells the human story of electricity, the world’s most important form of energy. Through onsite reporting from India, Iceland, Lebanon, Puerto Rico, New York, and Colorado, he shows how our cities, our money-our very lives-depend on reliable flows of electricity.
He highlights the factors needed for successful electrification and explains why so many people are still stuck in the dark. With vivid writing and incisive analysis, he powerfully debunks the notion that our energy needs can be met solely with renewables and demonstrates why-if we are serious about addressing climate change-nuclear energy must play a much bigger role.

A masterful book driven by deep research, new insights, and powerful storytelling.W. David Marx, author of Ametora: How Japan Saved American StyleJapan is the forge of the world’s fantasies: karaoke and the Walkman, manga and anime, Pac-Man and Pokmon, online imageboards and emojis.
But as Japan media veteran Matt Alt proves in this brilliant investigation, these novelties did more than entertain. They paved the way for our perplexing modern lives. In the 1970s and ’80s, Japan seemed to exist in some near future, gliding on the superior technology of Sony and Toyota.
Then a catastrophic 1990 stock-market crash ushered in the lost decades of deep recession and social dysfunction. The end of the boom should have plunged Japan into irrelevance, but that’s precisely when its cultural clout soaredwhen, once again, Japan got to the future a little ahead of the rest of us.
