The quest : energy, security and the remaking of the modern world by Daniel Yergin( Book )
32 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 2,885 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This sequel to The Prize provides a narrative of global energy, the principal engine of geopolitical and economic change. Energy authority Yergin tells the inside stories of the oil market, the rise of the "petrostate," the race to control the resources of the former Soviet empire, and the massive corporate mergers that transformed the oil landscape. He shows how the drama of oil will continue to shape our world, and takes on the tough questions: will we run out of oil, and are China and the United States destined to conflict over oil? He also reveals the surprising and turbulent history of nuclear, coal, electricity, and natural gas, and investigates the "rebirth of renewables", biofuels, wind, and solar energy. He further offers an original history of how the issue of climate change went from concerning a handful of scientists to one of the overarching issues of our times.--From publisher description

What will Russia be like in the year 2010? What impact will the future of Russia have on the West? And what could we do now to help shape a better future? In this brilliant and illuminating book, Daniel Yergin, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Prize, and Thane Gustafson, leading expert on Russian politics and economics, present four "histories" of the future for Russia and offer a vision of "capitalism Russian style." The collapse of the Soviet Union and communism is the most important event at the end of the twentieth century. But what comes next? Using the unique technique of "scenario planning," Yergin and Gustafson explore what the "new Russian revolution" will bring. Which scenario will it be? Will it be The Two-Headed Eagle, a Russia that looks forward and backward at the same time; The Long Good-bye, the dissolution of Russia; or the Russian Bear, a grim dictatorship, anti-West and turned in on itself? Or will it be Chudo, the Russian economic miracle? The authors analyze the consequences of each scenario for the United States and other countries, pointing to possible surprises. Yergin and Gustafson provide essential insight into emerging power relationships, local wars that could turn into larger conflicts, the time bombs of ethnic strife that sit on Russia's borders - and the economic and political opportunities facing us in the future. Russia 2010 grew out of a confidential study developed for a select group of international companies by Cambridge Energy Research Associates (CERA), a leading international consulting firm. Yergin and Gustafson focus on Russia's enormously difficult triple transition - from dictatorship to democracy, from communism to a market economy, and from empire to nation state. The authors envision the struggles ahead, as excommunists, scions of the security state, and defense industrialists vie with democrats and the new entrepreneurs for their share of Russia's future. Russia 2010 provides a framework for understanding the revolution in Russia. Yergin and Gustafson analyze the role of foreign investment and international aid, the priorities for arms control, and the fault lines that could shake relations between the United States and Russia. Fascinating and authoritative, Russia 2010 will shape debates about the future and is the book that Americans need to read to make sense of events

The battle of ideas by William Cran( Visual )
7 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and Dutch and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The battle of ideas identifies how the world, for much of the twentieth century, first moved toward more government control and then began to move away. The program focuses on the struggle between two economic thinkers, John Maynard Keynes, whose ideas on government intervention dominated much of the twentieth century, and Freidrich Von Hayek, whose free-market ideas were largely ignored until the economic crises of the 1970s forced political leaders to rediscover them. In the 1980s, the simultaneous emergence of the governments of Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan set the stage for a worldwide capitalist revolution- one that will be tested by economic turmoil in the future
