Looking at the sun : the rise of the new East Asian economic and political system by James M Fallows ( Book )
10 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 1,352 libraries worldwide
"The Western world believes that capitalism has won, that our model of individual enterprise and rights has triumphed. But in East Asia a new system has emerged that challenges the economic principles the West extols. In fact, as James Fallows vividly demonstrates, the theories we embrace to explain how nations rise and fall have prevented us from seeing the true nature of this new system and its enormous impact on us." "Skillfully blending history with on-the-ground reportage and astute analysis, Fallows reveals how political goals and historical experience have shaped Japan's economic rise and placed it at the heart of the Asian system. He shows how the explosive growth of Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore has been fueled by Japanese investment; why Burma, the Philippines, and Vietnam have been largely isolated from the region's progress; and why Korea, Taiwan, and "Greater China" are the strongest contenders for future economic dominance." "Extraordinary in depth and scope, Looking At the Sun provides the first clear picture of the Asian rise and the magnitude of its challenge to the Western world."--Jacket.

Free flight : inventing the future of travel by James M Fallows ( Book )
5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 80 libraries worldwide
"The airline system has reached a nightmarish state, due to economics, technology, and now heightened security. As the average cost of a flight has come down in the last twenty years, the airlines have survived by filing all the seats and funneling traffic through a hub-and-spoke routing system. Virtually all of the technological innovation in airplanes in the last thirty years has been devoted to moving passengers more cheaply, and more safely, between major hubs. Each generation of new planes has been more reliable, and has carried more passengers on less fuel, than before. But what was left out of this equation was, of course, the comfort, convenience, and flexibility of the average traveler." "As James Fallows vividly explains, a technological answer to this logjam is under way at the moment, and Free Flight features the stories of three groups who are inventing and building the future of all air travel: NASA, Cirrus Design in Duluth, Minnesota, and Eclipse Aviation in Albuquerque, New Mexico. These ventures should make it possible for more people to travel from the small airport that's closest to their home or office and fly direct to the small airport closest to where they really want to go. And this would be possible because of a product now missing from the vast array of flying devices: small planes that offer much of the speed, and as much as possible of the safety, of the big airlines, but at a fraction of the cost of today's corporate jets. The creation of those machines is happening now and Free Flight is the harbinger of a new age of travel."--BOOK JACKET.
