Things fall apart, The center cannot hold. Not just a
line from a Yeats poem, this is, argues Council on
Foreign Relations president Richard Haass, an apt
description of the current state of the world. A World in
Disarray is his wise, historically grounded examination
of the current world, how we got here, what will happen
next and what it will mean for us all. Great powers,
particularly the United States, for long the dominant
building blocks of international relations, are losing
some and in certain cases much of their sway to other
entities and forces. Disorder is on the rise.

In Doughnut Economics, Oxford academic Kate Raworth
identifies seven critical ways in which mainstream
economics has led us astray, and sets out a roadmap for
bringing humanity into a sweet spot that meets the needs
of all within the means of the planet. En route, she
reconstructs the character of -rational economic man- and
explains what really makes us tick. She reveals how an
obsession with equilibrium has left economists helpless
when facing the boom and bust of the real-world economy.

Thomas Piketty-s Capital in the Twenty-First Century is
the most widely discussed work of economics in recent
history, selling millions of copies in dozens of
languages. But are its analyses of inequality and
economic growth on target? Where should researchers go
from here in exploring the ideas Piketty pushed to the
forefront of global conversation? A cast of economists
and other social scientists tackle these questions in
dialogue with Piketty, in what is sure to be a much-
debated book in its own right. After Piketty opens with a
discussion by Arthur Goldhammer, Piketty-s translator
into English, of the reasons for Capital-s phenomenal
success, followed by the published reviews of Nobel
laureates Robert Solow and Paul Krugman.

Democracy in the Woods examines the trajectories of
forest and land rights in India, Tanzania, and Mexico to
explain how societies negotiate the tensions between
environmental protection and social justice. It shows
that the social consequences of environmental protection
depend, almost entirely, on political intermediation of
competing claims to environmental resources.
