Описание: Western civilization's rise to global dominance is the single most important historical phenomenon of the past five centuries How did the West overtake its Eastern rivals? And has the zenith of Western power now passed? Acclaimed historian Niall Ferguson argues that beginning in the fifteenth century, the West developed six powerful new concepts, or "killer applications"--competition, science, the rule of law, modern medicine, consumerism, and the work ethic--that the Rest lacked, allowing it to surge past all other competitors. Yet now, Ferguson shows how the Rest have downloaded the killer apps the West once monopolized, while the West has literally lost faith in itself. Chronicling the rise and fall of empires alongside clashes (and fusions) of civilizations, "Civilization: The West and the Rest " recasts world history with force and wit. Boldly argued and teeming with memorable characters, this is Ferguson at his very best.

Описание: Acclaimed historian Niall Ferguson ranges across the entire history of America s foreign entanglements and delves into all the dimensions of American power military, economic, cultural, and political. The result is a book whose conclusions are as convincing, and troubling, as they are original. Ferguson demonstrates that America has always been an empire in denial and shows the fateful consequences of its special brand of imperialism. He examines the challenges to the United States from its principal rivals, the European Union and China, and offers a compelling analysis of the connection between the country s domestic economic health and its foreign affairs the bottom line of imperialism, American style. "Colossus" is a peerless reckoning with American power that should be read by any thinking citizen of this unspoken empire.

Описание: The world at the beginning of the 20th century seemed for most of its inhabitants stable and relatively benign. Globalizing, booming economies married to
technological breakthroughs seemed to promise a better world for most people. Instead, the 20th century proved to be overwhelmingly the most violent, frightening and brutalized in
history with fanatical, often genocidal warfare engulfing most societies between the outbreak of the First World War and the end of the Cold War.
What went wrong? How did
we do this to ourselves? "The War of the World" comes up with compelling, fascinating answers. It is Niall Ferguson's masterpiece.

Описание: From the bestselling author of Empire, Niall Ferguson's The Ascent of Money: A Financial History of the World shows that the history of money is the back-story to all history.

From the banking dynasty who funded the Italian Renaissance to the stock market bubble that caused the French Revolution, this is the story of booms and busts as it's never been told before.
With the world in the grip of the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression, there's never been a better time to understand the ascent - and descent - of money.

Описание: Watch the PBS program based on "The Ascent of Money."
Niall Ferguson follows the money to tell the human story behind the evolution of finance, from its origins in ancient Mesopotamia to the latest upheavals on what he calls Planet Finance. Bread, cash, dosh, dough, loot, lucre, moolah, readies, the wherewithal: Call it what you like, it matters. To Christians, love of it is the root of all evil. To generals, it s the sinews of war. To revolutionaries, it s the chains of labor. But in "The Ascent of Money," Niall Ferguson shows that finance is in fact the foundation of human progress. What s more, he reveals financial history as the essential backstory behind all history. Through Ferguson s expert lens familiar historical landmarks appear in a new and sharper financial focus. Suddenly, the civilization of the Renaissance looks very different: a boom in the market for art and architecture made possible when Italian bankers adopted Arabic mathematics. The rise of the Dutch republic is reinterpreted as the triumph of the world s first modern bond market over insolvent Habsburg absolutism. And the origins of the French Revolution are traced back to a stock market bubble caused by a convicted Scot murderer. With the clarity and verve for which he is known, Ferguson elucidates key financial institutions and concepts by showing where they came from. What is money? What do banks do? What s the difference between a stock and a bond? Why buy insurance or real estate? And what exactly does a hedge fund do? This is history for the present. Ferguson travels to post-Katrina New Orleans to ask why the free market can t provide adequate protection against catastrophe. He delves into the origins of the subprime mortgage crisis. Perhaps most important, "The Ascent of Money" documents how a new financial revolution is propelling the world s biggest countries, India and China, from poverty to wealth in the space of a single generation an economic transformation unprecedented in human history. Yet the central lesson of the financial history is that sooner or later every bubble bursts sooner or later the bearish sellers outnumber the bullish buyers, sooner or later greed flips into fear. And that s why, whether you re scraping by or rolling in it, there s never been a better time to understand the ascent of money."
