Why Europe Will Run the 21st Century Mark Leonard 2005-08-16 Those who believe Europe is weak, ineffectual and sclerotic are wrong. Europe might look frail and feeble against American military might, but that expression of power is shallow and narrow. Or so says Mark Leonard, one of Europe's brightest new policy thinkers, in a book sure to stir and provoke his American contemporaries. America's centralized, militarized supremacy, he argues, has become so overwhelming that it has defeated everything, including itself. It's capable of imposing itself anywhere — but when its back is turned its potency wanes. Europe's reach, by contrast, is broad and deep, spreading a value system from Albania to Zambia. It draws other countries into its orbit rather than seeking to define itself against them, and as they come under the influence of its laws and customs they are changed forever. Europe, quietly, has rediscovered within its foundations a revolutionary model for the future and an alternative to American hard power. With little fanfare, Europe has pooled the resources and the sovereignty of its nations into a radical new interface – and a power that is discreetly but insistently shaping the path forward. The revolution they have unleashed, Leonard argues, will transform the world. Whether you are a neocon or a transatlantic traditionalist, a businessmen or financier, his argument is one you cannot afford to ignore.

Twelve Years a Slave Solomon Northup 101-01-01 "Having been born a freeman, and for more than thirty years enjoyed the blessings of liberty in a free State—and having at the end of that time been kidnapped and sold into Slavery, where I remained, until happily rescued in the month of January, 1853, after a bondage of twelve years—it has been suggested that an account of my life and fortunes would not be uninteresting to the public." -an excerpt

The Age of Unpeace Mark Leonard 2021-09-02 A FINANCIAL TIMES ECONOMICS BOOK OF THE YEAR 'Compulsively readable... An essential course in geopolitical self-help' - Adam Tooze 'Full of fresh - and often surprising - ideas' - Niall Ferguson 'Extraordinary... One of those rare books that defines the terms of our conversation about our times' - Michael Ignatieff We thought connecting the world would bring lasting peace. Instead, it is driving us apart. In the three decades since the end of the Cold War, global leaders have been integrating the world's economy, transport and communications, breaking down borders in the hope of making war impossible. In doing so, they have unwittingly created a formidable arsenal of weapons for new kinds of conflict and the motivation to keep fighting. Rising tensions in global politics are not a bump in the road - they are part of the paving. Troublingly, we are now seeing rising conflict at every level, from individuals on social media all the way up to full-blown war in eastern Europe. The past decade has seen a new antagonism between the US and China; an inability to co-operate on global issues such as climate change or pandemic response; and a breakdown in the distinction between war and peace, as the theatre of conflict expands to include sanctions, cyberwar and the threat of large migrant flows. As a leading authority on international relations, Mark Leonard has been inside many of the rooms where our futures, at every level of society, are being decided - from the Facebook HQ and facial recognition labs in China to meetings in presidential palaces and at remote military installations. In seeking to understand the ways that globalisation has broken its fundamental promise to make our world safer and more prosperous, Leonard explores how we might wrest a more hopeful future from an age of unpeace.

Konami's Msx Legacy Wim Dewijngaert 2018-11 It's hard to imagine, but at the beginning of the eighties, the PC had yet to be invented. If you wanted to create software or play video games, you had to buy a machine called a 'home computer'. Unfortunately, each manufacturer released its own hardware, with its own (incompatible) software. Microsoft and ASCII Corporation Japan wanted to do something about this and invented a standard called MSX (which is short for Microsoft eXtended or Machines with Software eXchangeability - depending on who you ask). The specificationsdescribed a set of minimal software and hardware a machine should have in order to be considered MSX compatible. The ColecoVision, Sega SG-1000 video game system and the Spectravideo SV-318/328 were used as a source of inspiration. The first MSX compatible computer was officially released in 1983. Almost every well known electronics manufacturer jumped on the bandwagon and put its own machines on the market, including Sony, Philips, Yamaha, Pioneer and Sanyo, among many others. However, most companies stayed out of the USA, where the Commodore 64 was dominating at that time.The MSX spawned four generations: MSX, MSX2 (1985), MSX2+ (1988), and MSX turboR (1990). Each version of the MSX standard was downwards compatible with the previous one, but added a faster processor or better graphical capabilities. Using the MSX cartridge system, manufacturers could add modems, MIDI interfaces, touch tablets or sound cards. Several artists composed their music using an MSX at that time. A Sony MSX2 was used as a broadcast video workstation on board at the MIR space station. In total, about over 5 million MSX computers were sold in Japan alone. While not as much as the Commodore 64, this was far more than most other home computers available at that time. However, the MSX never became a worldwide standard, mainlybecause the machines arrived too late in an already saturated market. The MSX was one of the major platforms on which big Japanese game studios, such as Konami, released their games. Some of Konami's most popular titles debuted on the MSX, and its software is considered to be the highest quality available. In the current retro game business, Konami's MSX games are on many people's most wanted list. Rare cartridges, like the Word Processing Unit, are sold for more than $1,500, making the MSX one of the most valuable retro computers on eBay. This book provides an overview of all the hardware and software released by Konami on the MSX, including comparisons, screenshots, tips, tricks, facts and figures.

Shut Up, Legs! Jens Voigt 2016-05-03 Beloved German cyclist Jens Voigt isn’t a superstar in the traditional sense of the word. Although he won three stages of the Tour De France—and wore the yellow jersey twice—Voigt never claimed an overall victory. He became a star because he embodies qualities that go beyond winning and losing: sacrifice, selflessness, reliability, and devotion. European and American crowds were drawn to his aggressive riding style, outgoing nature, and refreshing realness. Voigt adopted a tireless work ethic that he carried throughout his career. In Shut Up, Legs! (a legendary Jensism), Voigt reflects upon his childhood in East Germany, juggling life as a professional cyclist and a father of six, and how he remained competitive without doping. Shut Up, Legs! offers a rare glimpse inside his heart and mind.

Big White Ghetto Kevin D. Williamson 2020-11-17 "You can't truly understand the country you're living in without reading Williamson." —Rich Lowry, National Review "His observations on American culture, history, and politics capture the moment we're in—and where we are going." —Dana Perino, Fox News An Appalachian economy that uses cases of Pepsi as money. Life in a homeless camp in Austin. A young woman whose résumé reads, “Topless Chick, Uncredited.” Remorselessly unsentimental, Kevin D. Williamson is a chronicler of American underclass dysfunction unlike any other. From the hollows of Eastern Kentucky to the porn business in Las Vegas, from the casinos of Atlantic City to the heroin rehabs of New Orleans, he depicts an often brutal reality that does not fit nicely into any political narrative or comfort any partisan. Coming from the world he writes about, Williamson understands it in a way that most commentators on American politics and culture simply can’t. In these sometimes savage and often hilarious essays, he takes readers on a wild tour of the wreckage of the American republic—the “white minstrel show” of right-wing grievance politics, progressive politicians addicted to gambling revenue, the culture of passive victimhood, and the reality of permanent poverty. Unsparing yet never unsympathetic, Big White Ghetto provides essential insight into an enormous but forgotten segment of American society.
Firing Point George Wallace 2012-07-03 NOW THE MAJOR MOTION PICTURE HUNTER KILLER—STARRING GERARD BUTLER AND GARY OLDMAN A submarine captain races to prevent World War III in this thrilling adventure. Below the polar ice cap, an American nuclear submarine moves quietly in the freezing water, tailing a new Russian sub. But the usual, unspoken game of hide-and-seek between opposing captains is ended when the Americans hear sounds of disaster and flooding, and the Russian sub sinks in a thousand feet of water. The American sub rushes to help, only to join its former quarry in the deep. The situation ignites tensions around the world. As both Washington and Moscow prepare for what may be the beginnings of World War III, the USS Toledo—led by young, untested Captain Joe Glass—heads to the location to give aid. He soon discovers that the incident was no accident. And the men behind it have yet to make their final move. A move only Glass can stop.
