    The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order

    Samuel P. Huntington

     

    Samuel P. Huntington, one of the world’s most influential thinkers, argues in this seminal book that conflicts between different cultural ‘civilizations’ are the greatest threat to world peace. He suggests that the world is comprised of not two opposites but eight diverse groups, based on religion, and how international cooperation between them is the best safeguard against war. Global events in the twenty-first century have proved his foresight and sagacity.

     

    Huntington’s provocative thesis that a struggle for supremacy among dominant cultures—like the Japanese, Chinese, Hindu and Islamic—is inevitable is turning into reality. In the end, people’s decision to coexist or to make war in a complex, multipolar, multi-civilizational world will determine the course of humanity.

    Edible Economics: A Hungry Economist Explains the World

    Ha-Joon Chang

     

    • RADIO 4 BOOK OF THE WEEK

     

    Excellent… Chang has been working hard at providing an alternative to neoliberalism for two decades… Now he’s reached the summit of the profession — Dan Davies ― Guardian

     

    The only book I’ve ever read that made me laugh, salivate and re-evaluate my thoughts about economics – all at the same time. A funny, profound and appetising volume — Brian Eno

     

    Economic thinking – about globalisation, climate change, immigration, austerity, automation and much more – in its most digestible form

     

    For decades, a single free market philosophy has dominated global economics. But this is bland and unhealthy – like British food in the 1980s, when bestselling author and economist Ha-Joon Chang first arrived in the UK from South Korea. Just as eating a wide range of cuisines contributes to a more interesting and balanced diet, so too is it essential we listen to a variety of economic perspectives.

     

    In Edible Economics, Chang makes challenging economic ideas more palatable by plating them alongside stories about food from around the world. He uses histories behind familiar food items – where they come from, how they are cooked and consumed, what they mean to different cultures – to explore economic theory. For Chang, chocolate is a life-long addiction, but more exciting are the insights it offers into post-industrial knowledge economies; and while okra makes Southern gumbo heart-meltingly smooth, it also speaks of capitalism’s entangled relationship with freedom and unfreedom. Explaining everything from the hidden cost of care work to the misleading language of the free market as he cooks dishes like anchovy and egg toast, Gambas al Ajillo and Korean dotori mook, Ha-Joon Chang serves up an easy-to-digest feast of bold ideas.

     

    Myth-busting, witty and thought-provoking, Edible Economics shows that getting to grips with the economy is like learning a recipe: if we understand it, we can change it – and, with it, the world.

    It will leave you with a deep and nuanced understanding of the Crown Prince’s thinking and its implications for Saudi Arabia and the entire Middle East ― John Carreyrou, author of Bad Blood

     

    ‘If you’ve ever wondered what would happen if limitless money met limitless power, wonder no longer, it’s all here … Terrifying, disturbing and ghastly’ — Oliver Bullough, author of Moneyland

     

    Blood and Oil the explosive untold story of how Mohammed bin Salman and his entourage grabbed power in the Middle East and acquired a network of Western allies – including well-known US bankers, Hollywood figures, and politicians – all eager to help the charming and crafty crown prince.

     

    Through astonishing interviews with powerful insiders, Blood and Oil tells how MBS’s cabal played the Saudi economy and capitalised on the omnipotence of feudal power while effectively stamping out dissent, before allegations of his extreme brutality and excess began to slip out. A story of breathtaking dealings that range from Riyadh to London, Paris to America, this is a thrilling and brutal investigation into extreme wealth, one of the world’s most decisive and dangerous new leaders, and the bid for Saudi transformation that is reverberating around the world.
