In this clear-eyed and indispensable book, Sarah Elk and Steve Berez provide a much-needed reality check.

    The bailouts during the recent financial crisis enraged the public. They felt unfair-and counterproductive: people who take risks must be allowed to fail. If we reward firms that make irresponsible investments, costing taxpayers billions of dollars, aren't we encouraging them to continue to act irresponsibly, setting the stage for future crises? And beyond the ethics of it was the question of whether the government even had the authority to bail out failing firms like Bear Stearns and AIG. The answer, according to Eric A. Posner, is no. The federal government freely and frequently violated the law with the bailouts-but it did so in the public interest. An understandable lack of...read more

    Bipolar disorder-manic depression-was once thought to be rare in children. Now researchers are discovering not only that bipolar disorder can begin early in life, but that it is much more common than ever imagined. Yet the illness is often misdiagnosed and mistreated with medications that can exacerbate the symptoms. Why? Bipolar disorder manifests itself differently in children than in adults, and in children there is an overlap of symptoms with other childhood psychiatric disorders. As a result, these kids may be labeled with any of a number of psychiatric conditions: 'ADHD,' 'depression,' 'oppositional defiant disorder,' 'obsessive-compulsive disorder,' or 'generalized anxiety disorder.'...read more

    Ageism is too often an accepted form of bias, even though the facts support the value of aging. Airline pilots forced to retire at the arbitrary age of sixty five are usually at the top of their game. Forced retirement in most organizations remove highly skilled performers as well as role models and trainers for newer generations. Instead of revelling in who we are, we begin to try to look younger as soon as possible, with sixteen-year-old women receiving nose and breast surgery as birthday presents. People have become inured to 'losing' abilities as they age instead of appreciating new abilities that only age can bestow. Everyone extols the need for gender equality, lest we lose the...read more

    This book explores how the discoveries within the Solar System and of exoplanets far beyond it come together to help us understand the habitability of Earth, and how these findings guide the search for exoplanets that could support life. The author highlights how, within two decades of the discovery of the first planets outside the Solar System in the 1990s, scientists concluded that planets are so common that most stars are orbited by them. The lives of exoplanets and their stars are inextricably interwoven. Stars are the seeds around which planets form, and they provide light and warmth for as long as they shine. At the end of their lives, stars expel massive amounts of newly forged...read more

    Is social media destroying democracy? Are Russian propaganda or 'Fake news' entrepreneurs on Facebook undermining our sense of a shared reality? A conventional wisdom has emerged since the election of Donald Trump in 2016 that new technologies and their manipulation by foreign actors played a decisive role in his victory and are responsible for the sense of a 'post-truth' moment in which disinformation and propaganda thrives. Network Propaganda challenges that received wisdom through the most comprehensive study yet published on media coverage of American presidential politics from the start of the election cycle in April 2015 to the one-year anniversary of the Trump presidency.

  • James C. Hunter

    To lead is not to be 'the boss,' the 'head honcho,' or 'the brass.' To lead is to serve. Although serving may imply weakness to some, conjuring up a picture of the CEO waiting on the workforce hand and foot, servant leadership is actually a robust, revolutionary idea that can have significant impact on an organization's performance. Jim Hunter champions this hard/soft approach to leadership, which turns bosses and managers into coaches and mentors. By 'hard,' Hunter means that servant leaders can be hard-nosed, even autocratic, when it comes to the basics of running the business. But once that direction is provided, servant leaders turn the organizational structure upside down. They...read more
