The world is flat : a brief history of the twenty-first century by Thomas L Friedman ( Book )
62 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in 8 languages and held by 5,307 libraries worldwide
When scholars write the history of the world twenty years from now, what will they say was the most crucial development at the dawn of the 21st century--the attacks of 9/11, or the convergence of technology and events that allowed India, China, and so many other countries to become part of the global supply chain for services and manufacturing, creating an explosion of wealth in the middle classes of the world's two biggest nations, and giving them a huge new stake in the success of globalization? And with this "flattening" of the globe, has the world gotten too small and too fast for human beings and their political systems to adjust in a stable manner? Friedman explains how the flattening of the world happened; what it means to countries, companies, communities, and individuals; and how governments and societies can, and must, adapt.

Longitudes and attitudes : exploring the world after September 11 by Thomas L Friedman ( Book )
36 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 3,092 libraries worldwide
America's leading observer of the international scene on the minute-by-minute events of September 11th, before, during and after As the Foreign Affairs columnist for the The New York Times, the author is in a unique position to interpret the world for American readers. Twice a week, his celebrated commentary provides the most trenchant, pithy, and illuminating perspective in journalism. This book contains the columns he has published about the most momentous news story of our time, as well as a diary of his experiences and reactions during this period of crisis. As the author writes, the book is "not meant to be a comprehensive study of September 11 and all the factors that went into it. Rather, my hope is that it will constitute a word album that captures and preserves the raw, unpolished, emotional and analytical responses that illustrate how I, and others, felt as we tried to grapple with September and its aftermath, as they were unfolding." Readers have repeatedly said that the author has expressed the essence of their own feelings, helping them not only by explaining who "they" are, but also by reassuring us about who "we" are. More than any other journalist writing, he gives voice to America's awakening sense of its role in a changed world.
That used to be us : how America fell behind in the world it invented and how we can come back by Thomas L Friedman ( Book )
3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 702 libraries worldwide
This book makes recommendations for meeting four major challenges currently facing the United States, including globalization, the information technology revolution, chronic deficits, and unbalanced energy consumption. America has a huge problem. It faces four major challenges, on which its future depends, and it is failing to meet them. In this book the authors analyze those challenges, globalization, the revolution in information technology, the nation's chronic deficits, and its pattern of energy consumption, and spell out what needs to be done now to rediscover America's power and prowess. They explain how the end of the cold war blinded the nation to the need to address these issues seriously. They show how America's history, when properly understood, provides the key to coping successfully and explain how the paralysis of the U.S. political system and the erosion of key American values have made it impossible to carry out the policies the country needs. This work is both a searching exploration of the American condition today and a rousing manifesto for American renewal.

The World Is Flat has helped millions of readers to see globalization in a new way.

His argument speaks to all who are concerned about the state of the world in the global future. Friedman proposes that an ambitious national strategy - which he calls 'Geo-Greenism' - is not only what we need to save the planet from overheating; it is what we need to make us all healthier, richer, more innovative, more productive, and more secure. As in The World Is Flat, he explains a new era - the Energy-Climate era - through an illuminating account of recent events.He sets out the clean-technology breakthroughs the world will need; he shows that the ET (Energy Technology) revolution will be both transformative and disruptive; and he explains why America must lead this revolution - with the first Green President and a Green New Deal, spurred by the Greenest Generation. Hot, Flat and Crowded is classic Thomas L. Friedman - fearless, incisive, forward-looking, and rich in surprising common sense about the world we live in today.
