"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 : from airline hell to a new age of travel by James M Fallows( Book )
3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The airline system has reached a nightmarish state, due to a combination of economics and technology. As the average cost of a flight has come down in the last twenty years, the airlines have survived by filling 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 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. There's the NASA administrator who long ago anticipated airline gridlock and began agitating for another system; there are the two Klapmeier brothers of Cirrus Design in Duluth, Minnesota, who created the first genuinely new small airplane in more than twenty-five years, complete with parachute for the entire plane; and there is Eclipse Aviation in Albuquerque, New Mexico, which uses technologies first applied on cruise missiles to develop "cheap" jet planes for "air taxi" services that take you exactly where you want to go, when you want to go there."--Jacket
