The world is flat : a brief history of the twenty-first century by Thomas L Friedman( Book )

150 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in 23 languages and held by 8,823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is an update on globalization, its history, successes, and discontents. It discusses a wide range of topics, from the September 11 terrorist attacks to the growth of the middle class in both China and India. This new edition is the author's account of the great changes taking place in our time, as lightning-swift advances in technology and communications put people all over the globe in touch as never before, creating an explosion of wealth in India and China, and challenging the rest of us to run even faster just to stay in place. Updated and expanded, it features more than a hundred pages of fresh reporting and commentary, drawn from the author's travels around the world and across the American heartland from anyplace where the flattening of the world is being felt. Here he shows how and why globalization has accelerated, and demystifies the new flat world for readers, allowing them to make sense of the often bewildering scene unfolding before their eyes. Translating complex foreign policy and economic issues, he explains how the flattening of the world happened at the dawn of the twenty-first century; what it means to countries, companies, communities, and individuals; how governments and societies can, and must, adapt; and why terrorists want to stand in the way

Globalization is not just a phenomenon and not just a passing trend. It is the international system that replaced the Cold War system, according to Thomas L. Friedman, Foreign Affairs columnist for The New York Times. You cannot understand the morning news or know where to invest your money or think about where the world is going, Friedman explains, unless you understand this new system which is influencing the domestic policies and international relations of virtually every country in the world today
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 )

20 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Dutch and held by 3,345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Longitudes and attitudes : exploring the world after September 11 by Thomas L Friedman( Book )

21 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 3,221 WorldCat member 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
