America and the world : conversations on the future of American foreign policy by Zbigniew Brzezinski( Book )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 2,071 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The status of the United States as a world power, and the nature of power itself, are at a historic turning point, a time when the nation's decisions could determine how long it remains a superpower. It is essential that we understand and adapt to the new security environment in which we find ourselves. Zbigniew Brzezinski and Brent Scowcroft, both former National Security Advisors under markedly different administrations, dissect, in moderated conversations, the most significant foreign policy challenges facing the U.S.: the Middle East, Russia, China, Europe, the developing world, the changing nature of power in a globalized world, and what Brzezinski has called the "global political awakening." While one author is a Republican and the other a Democrat, they broadly agree on the need to adapt to a new international environment. Where they disagree, their exchanges are always both deeply informed and provocative.--From publisher description

The quantum spy : a thriller by David Ignatius( Book )

12 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A hyper-fast quantum computer is the digital equivalent of a nuclear bomb: whoever possesses one will be able to shred any encryption in existence, effectively owning the digital world. The question is: Who will build it first, the United States or China? The latest of David Ignatius's timely, sharp-eyed espionage novels follows CIA agent Harris Chang into a quantum research lab compromised by a suspected Chinese informant. The breach provokes a mole hunt that is obsessive, destructive, and--above all--uncertain: Do the leaks expose real secrets, or are they false trails meant to deceive the Chinese? Chang soon finds that there is a thin line between loyalty and betrayal, as the investigation leads him down a rabbit hole as dangerous as it is deep. Grounded in the real-world global charge toward technological dominance, The Quantum Spy presents a sophisticated game of cat-and-mouse wired to an exhilarating cyber thriller
