The company : a short history of a revolutionary idea by John Micklethwait( Book )

38 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 1,604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economist editors John Micklethwait and Adrian Wooldridge reveal the company to be one of history's great catalysts, for good and for ill, a mighty engine for sucking in, recombining, and pumping out money, goods, people, and culture to every corner of the globe. What other earthly invention has the power to grow to any size, and to live to any age? What else could have given us both the stock market and the British Empire? The company man, the company town, and company time? Disneyfication and McDonald'sization, to say nothing of Coca-colonialism? Through its many mutations, the company has always incited controversy, and governments have always fought to rein it in. Today, though Marx may spin in his grave and anarchists riot in the streets, the company exercises an unparalleled influence on the globe, and understanding what this creature is and where it comes from has never been a more pressing matter

The right nation : conservative power in America by John Micklethwait( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two renowned British America-watchers anatomize the conservative movement and explain how it has stamped its program so deeply into American life. This book is for anyone who wants to understand one of the most important forces shaping American life. How did America's government become so much more conservative in just a generation? Welfare is gone; the death penalty is deeply rooted; abortion is under siege; regulations are being rolled back; the pillars of New Deal liberalism are turning to sand. Conservative positions have not prevailed everywhere, of course, but this book shows us why they've been so successfully advanced over such a broad front: because the battle has been waged by well-organized, shrewd, and committed troops who to some extent have been lucky in their enemies. The authors come neither to bury the American conservative movement nor to praise it blindly but to understand it, in all its dimensions.--From publisher description
The witch doctors : making sense of the management gurus by John Micklethwait( Book )

17 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Management gurus - high-powered consulting firms, business school professors, motivational speakers who never graduated from high school - are latterday witch doctors, each promising the cure for what ails corporate America. These men and women are the sales reps for an industry that exists exclusively to peddle freshly laid management advice to petrified executives
God is back : how the global revival of faith is changing the world by John Micklethwait( Book )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 988 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the street and in the corridors of power, religion is surging worldwide. From Russia to Turkey to India, nations that swore off faith in the last century--or even tried to stamp it out--are now run by avowedly religious leaders. This book examines this new world, from exorcisms in São Paulo to religious skirmishing in Nigeria, to televangelism in California and house churches in China. Since the Enlightenment, intellectuals have assumed that modernization would kill religion--and that religious America is an oddity. As these authors argue, religion and modernity can thrive together, and America is becoming the norm. The failure of communism and the rise of globalism helped spark the global revival, but, above all, 21st century religion is being fueled by a very American emphasis on competition and a customer-driven approach to salvation, and its destabilizing effects can already be seen far from Iraq or the World Trade Center.--From publisher description
The fourth revolution : the global race to reinvent the state by John Micklethwait( Book )

26 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and Chinese and held by 789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the bestselling authors of The Right Nation, a visionary argument that our current crisis in government is nothing less than the fourth radical transition in the history of the nation-state. Dysfunctional government: It's become a cliche. And most of us are resigned to the fact that nothing is ever going to change. As John Micklethwait and Adrian Wooldridge show us, that is a seriously limited view of things. In fact, there have been three great revolutions in government in the history of the modern world. The West has led these revolutions, but now we are in the midst of a fourth revolution, and it is Western government that is in danger of being left behind. Now, things really are different. The West's debt load is unsustainable. The developing world has harvested the low-hanging fruits. Industrialization has transformed all the peasant economies it had left to transform, and the toxic side effects of rapid developing world growth are adding to the bill"--Del editor

The right nation : why America is different by John Micklethwait( Book )

18 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and German and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a portrait of America that few outsiders understand - the America that votes for George Bush, that supports the death penalty and gun rights, that believes in minimal government and long prison sentences, that pulled out of the Kyoto Protocol. The authors drive to the question: why does America seem so different?

God is back : how the global rise of faith is changing the world by John Micklethwait( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On the street and in the corridors of power, religion is surging worldwide. From Russia to Turkey to India, nations that swore off faith in the last century-or even tried to stamp it out-are now run by avowedly religious leaders. Since the Enlightenment, intellectuals have assumed that modernisation would kill religion - and that religious America is an oddity. Many things helped spark the global revival of religion, including the failure of communism and the rise of globalism. But, above all, twenty-first century religion is being fueled by a very American emphasis on competition and a customer-driven approach to salvation. These qualities have characterized this country's faith ever since the Founders separated church and state, creating a religious free market defined by entrepreneurship, choice, and personal revelation. Religion plays a role in civil wars from Sri Lanka to Sudan. Along the tenth parallel, from West Africa to the Philippines, religious fervour and political unrest are reinforcing each other."--Publisher description
