    in a sweeping work of reportage set over the course of 2016 new york times bestselling author ben fountain recounts a surreal year of politics and an exploration of the third american existential crisis twice before in its history the united states has been faced with a crisis so severe it was forced to reinvent itself in order to survive: first the struggle over slavery culminating in the civil war and the second the great depression which led to president roosevelt’s new deal and the establishment of america as a social-democratic state. in a sequence of essays that excavate the past while laying bare the political upheaval of 2016 ben fountain argues that the united states may be facing a third existential crisis one that will require a “burning of the old order as america attempts to remake itself.beautiful country burn again narrates a shocking year in american politics moving from the early days of the iowa caucus to the crystalizing moments of the democratic and republican national conventions and culminating in the aftershocks of the weeks following election night. along the way fountain probes deeply into history illuminating the forces and watershed moments of the past that mirror and precipitated the present from the hollowed-out notion of the american dream to richard nixon’s southern strategy to our weaponized new conception of american exceptionalism to the cult of celebrity that gave rise to donald trump.in an urgent and deeply incisive voice ben fountain has fused history and the present day to paint a startling portrait of the state of our nation.  beautiful country burn again is a searing indictment of how we came to this point and where we may be headed.

    Foner Eric  著 W W Norton & Co Inc 出版 2019/9/17 出版

    the declaration of independence announced equality as an american ideal but it took the civil war and the subsequent adoption of three constitutional amendments to establish that ideal as american law. the reconstruction amendments abolished slavery guaranteed due process and the equal protection of the law and equipped black men with the right to vote. the federal government not the states was put in charge of enforcement. by grafting the principle of equality onto the constitution the amendments marked the second founding of the united states.eric foner rich insightful history conveys the dramatic origins of these revolutionary amendments in citizen meetings and political negotiations. he explores the momentous court decisions that then narrowed and even nullified the rights guaranteed in these amendments. today issues of birthright citizenship voting rights due process and equal protection are still in dispute the ideal of equality yet to be achieved.

    Identity

    Fukuyama Francis  著 Picador USA 出版 2019/9/10 出版

    the new york times bestselling author of the origins of political order offers a provocative examination of modern identity politics: its origins its effects and what it means for domestic and international affairs of statein 2014 francis fukuyama wrote that american institutions were in decay as the state was progressively captured by powerful interest groups. two years later his predictions were borne out by the rise to power of a series of political outsiders whose economic nationalism and authoritarian tendencies threatened to destabilize the entire international order. these populist nationalists seek direct charismatic connection to he people?who are usually defined in narrow identity terms that offer an irresistible call to an in-group and exclude large parts of the population as a whole. demand for recognition of one identity is a master concept that unifies much of what is going on in world politics today. the universal recognition on which liberal democracy is based has been increasingly challenged by narrower forms of recognition based on nation religion sect race ethnicity or gender which have resulted in anti-immigrant populism the upsurge of politicized islam the fractious dentity liberalism?of college campuses and the emergence of white nationalism. populist nationalism said to be rooted in economic motivation actually springs from the demand for recognition and therefore cannot simply be satisfied by economic means. the demand for identity cannot be transcended; we must begin to shape identity in a way that supports rather than undermines democracy.identity is an urgent and necessary book sharp warning that unless we forge a universal understanding of human dignity we will doom ourselves to continuing conflict.

  • The Economists’ Hour

    The Economists’ Hour

    Appelbaum Binyamin  著 Hachette Audio 出版 2019/9/3 出版 有聲CD

    an original history of ideas and an unforgettable portrait of power the economists’ hour by new york times editorial writer binyamin appelbaum tells the story of the people who sparked four decades of economic revolution. before the 1960s american politicians had never paid much attention to economists. but as the post-world war ii boom began to sputter economists gained influence and power. in this original history of ideas and unforgettable portrait of a revolution binyamin appelbaum traces the rise of the economists first in the united states and then around the globe as their ideas reshaped the modern world curbing government unleashing corporations and hastening globalization. some leading figures are relatively well-known like milton friedman the elfin libertarian who had a greater influence on american life than any other economist of his generation and arthur laffer who sketched a curve on a cocktail napkin that helped to make tax cuts a staple of conservative economic policy. others stayed out of the limelight but left a lasting impact on modern life: walter oi a blind economist who dictated calculations to his wife that helped to persuade president nixon to end military conscription; alfred kahn who deregulated air travel and rejoiced in the crowded cabins on commercial flights as the proof of his success; and thomas schelling who put a dollar value on human life. their fundamental belief? that government should stop trying to manage the economy. their guiding principle? that markets would deliver steady growth and ensure that all americans shared in the benefits. but the economists’ hour failed to deliver on its promise of broad prosperity. and the single-minded embrace of markets has come at the expense of economic equality of the health of liberal democracy and of future generations. timely engaging and expertly researched the economists’ hour is a reckoning - and a call for people to rewrite the rules of the market.

    Restoring the Global Judiciary

    Flaherty Martin S.  著 Princeton Univ Pr 出版 2019/9/3 出版

    why there should be a larger role for the judiciary in american foreign relationsin the past several decades there has been a growing chorus of voices contending that the supreme court and federal judiciary should stay out of foreign affairs and leave the field to congress and the president. challenging this idea restoring the global judiciary argues instead for a robust judicial role in the conduct of u.s. foreign policy. with an innovative combination of constitutional history international relations theory and legal doctrine martin flaherty demonstrates that the supreme court and federal judiciary have the power and duty to apply the law without deference to the other branches.turning first to the founding of the nation flaherty shows that the constitution original commitment to separation of powers was as strong in foreign as domestic matters not least because the document shifted enormous authority to the new federal government. this initial conception eroded as the nation rose from fledgling state to superpower fueling the growth of a dangerously formidable executive that today asserts near-plenary foreign affairs authority. flaherty explores how modern international relations makes the commitment to balance among the branches of government all the more critical and he considers implications for modern controversies that the judiciary will continue to confront.at a time when executive and legislative actions in the name of u.s. foreign policy are only increasing restoring the global judiciary makes the case for a zealous judicial defense of fundamental rights involving global affairs.
