The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in a New World, Alan Greenspan
141 Alan Greenspan The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in a New World
The Penguin Press 237899 New York 2007 First Edition 1594201315 / 9781594201318 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine In the immediate aftermath of September 11, 2001, in his fourteenth year as Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, Alan Greenspan took part in a very quiet collective effort to ensure that America didn't experience an economic meltdown, taking the rest of the world with it. There was good reason to fear the worst: the stock market crash of October 1987, his first major crisis as Federal Reserve Chairman, coming just weeks after he assumed control, had come much closer than is even today generally known to freezing the financial system and triggering a genuine financial panic. But the most remarkable thing that happened to the economy after 9/11 was...nothing. What in an earlier day would have meant a crippling shock to the system was absorbed astonishingly quickly. After 9/11 Alan Greenspan knew, if he needed any further reinforcement, that we're living in a new world - the world of a global capitalist economy that is vastly more flexible, resilient, open, self-directing, and fast-changing than it was even 20 years ago. It's a world that presents us with enormous new possibilities but also enormous new challenges. "The Age of Turbulence" is Alan Greenspan's incomparable reckoning with the nature of this new world - how we got here, what we're living through, and what lies over the horizon, for good and for ill-channeled through his own experiences working in the command room of the global economy for longer and with greater effect than any other single living figure. He begins his account on that September 11th morning, but then leaps back to his childhood, and follows the arc of his remarkable life's journey through to his more than 18-year tenure as Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, from 1987 to 2006, during a time of transforming change. Alan Greenspan shares the story of his life first simply with an eye toward doing justice to the extraordinary amount of history he has experienced and shaped. But his other goal is to draw readers along the same learning curve he followed, so they accrue a grasp of his own understanding of the underlying dynamics that drive world events. In the second half of the book, having brought us to the present and armed us with the conceptual tools to follow him forward, Dr. Greenspan embarks on a magnificent tour de horizon of the global economy. He reveals the universals of economic growth, delves into the specific facts on the ground in each of the major countries and regions of the world, and explains what the trend-lines of globalization are from here. The distillation of a life's worth of wisdom and insight into an elegant expression of a coherent worldview, "The Age of Turbulence" will stand as Alan Greenspan's personal and intellectual legacy. 531 pages.

Speeches That Shaped The Modern World, Alan J Whiticker
147 Alan J Whiticker Speeches That Shaped The Modern World
New Holland 236383 Australia 2005 1741103096 / 9781741103090 Hardcover Very Good Condition Good "Speeches that Shaped the Modern World" is a collection of the most potent and memorable speeches that have occurred since the year 1900 - speeches that have helped to shape the world we now live in. Memorable images add to make it a fascinating journey through time. This collection takes recurring themes such as politics and diplomacy, war and peace, freedom and justice, civil rights and human rights. What they all have in common is the rhetoric - the power of persuasion. The speeches reflect not only the historic events of one of the most cataclysmic centuries known to humanity, they also represent a fair share of the heroes and villains, martyrs and monsters. Josef Stalin and Mahatma Gandhi speak side by side, with Nelson Mandela, Joseph McCarthy, the Kennedy brothers and Fidel Castro. Across 16 nations, the most powerful and influential men and women of the last 100 years speak on everything from women's suffrage to human rights. Some speeches have been voted the most important speech of the last century - such as Winston Churchill's 'Our Finest Hour', John F Kennedy's 'Cuban Missile Crisis', and Dr Martin Luther King Junior's 'I Have a Dream'. Several speeches have become icons of modern history...Lou Gehrig's 'Farewell to Baseball', Neil Armstrong's 'One Small Step' and Douglas McArthur's 'Old Soldiers Never Die'. Some, such as Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev denouncement of Stalin and German Cardinal Clemens von Galen's criticism of Hitler are relatively unknown. Others still - Teddy Roosevelt's 'The Man with the Muck-rake', Dwight D. Eisenhower's 'Cross of Iron' take on a new poignancy and power because of the passage of time. 383 pages.

From Hell: Being a Melodrama in Sixteen Parts, Alan Moore
152 Alan Moore From Hell: Being a Melodrama in Sixteen Parts
Bantam Books 234344 2001 1863253122 / 9781863253123 Softcover Very Good Condition Eddie Campbell The mad, shaggy genius of the comics world dips deeply into the well of history and pulls up a cup filled with blood in From Hell. Alan Moore did a couple of Ph.D.'s worth of research into the Whitechapel murders for this copiously annotated collection of the independently published series. The web of facts, opinion, hearsay, and imaginative invention draws the reader in from the first page. Eddie Campbell's scratchy ink drawings evoke a dark and dirty Victorian London and help to humanize characters that have been caricatured into obscurity for decades. Moore, having decided that the evidence best fits the theory of a Masonic conspiracy to cover up a scandal involving Victoria's grandson, goes to work telling the story with relish from the point of view of the victims, the chief inspector, and the killer--the Queen's physician. His characterization is just as vibrant as Campbell's; even the minor characters feel fully real. Looking more deeply than most, the author finds in the "great work" of the Ripper a ritual magic working intended to give birth to the 20th century in all its horrid glory. Maps, characters, and settings are all as accurate as possible, and while the reader might not ultimately agree with Moore and Campbell's thesis, From Hell is still a great work of literature.

A Matter Of Opinion, Alan Ramsey

A&U 237141 Australia 2009 First Edition 1742371582 / 9781742371580 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket Ward O'Neill For more than two decades, from mid-1987 to the end of 2008, no one had greater access to our national parliament and its politicians than Alan Ramsey. Informed, insightful and unafraid, his Wednesday and Saturday columns in The Sydney Morning Herald were always essential reading for many thousands of Australians.Here are 150 of his unflinching views of key political events of that era, among them: the often turbulent Hawke/Keating years, the 1990 recession 'we had to have', Labor's stunning dumping of Bob Hawke in December 1991 after he had led his party to four successive election victories in eight years, the Howard Government's slavish subservience to the Bush White House, the insidious channeling of Hansonism, John Howard's 'never ever' GST, the invasion of Iraq, the disintegration of the Democrats as a political force after the 1997 defection to Labor of its leader, Cheryl Kernot, the manipulation by both sides of politics of the 2001 children overboard incident, and the scandal of the Governor-General who ultimately resigned after the cover-up by the Anglican Church in Queensland of serial child abuse in church schools.Yet Ramsey's keen eye often observed with affection the values and behavior of others in national life, and he was as ready to give credit as he was to lay into the humbug, pomposity and deceit of political, personal and sectional self-interest.Some 'matters of opinion' of Alan Ramsey'There is no one now, and no one coming along, who can write like this.'David Marr'I'll miss his profound dislike of hypocrisy and his instinct for plain speaking.'Kerry O'Brien'A lion of a journalist in every way.'Michelle Grattan'In an arena of journalism where sameness is a vice, Ramsey is entirely his own man.'Les Carlyon'For years his column has been an essential, often enjoyable, frequently uncomfortable, part of my Saturday morning regime.'Kevin Rudd'He always added to my Saturday morning enjoyment.'Peter Costello'A must read.'Bob Brown'Grumpy old bastard.
