The End of Power, From Boardrooms to Battlefields and Churches to States, Why Being In Charge Isn't What It Used to Be

Creator: Moises Naim | Political Science - 2014-03-11

In The End of Power, award-winning columnist and former Foreign Policy editor Moisés Naím illuminates the struggle between once-dominant megaplayers and the new micropowers challenging them in every field of human endeavor.

Publisher: Basic Books

About this book
We know that power is shifting: From West to East and North to South, from presidential palaces to public squares, from once formidable corporate behemoths to nimble startups and, slowly but surely, from men to women. But power is not merely shifting and dispersing. It is also decaying. Those in power today are more constrained in what they can do with it and more at risk of losing it than ever before. In The End of Power, award-winning columnist and former Foreign Policy editor Moisés Naím illuminates the struggle between once-dominant megaplayers and the new micropowers challenging them in every field of human endeavor. Drawing on provocative, original research, Naím shows how the antiestablishment drive of micropowers can topple tyrants, dislodge monopolies, and open remarkable new opportunities, but it can also lead to chaos and paralysis. Naím deftly covers the seismic changes underway in business, religion, education, within families, and in all matters of war and peace. Examples abound in all walks of life: In 1977, eighty-nine countries were ruled by autocrats while today more than half the world’s population lives in democracies. CEO’s are more constrained and have shorter tenures than their predecessors. Modern tools of war, cheaper and more accessible, make it possible for groups like Hezbollah to afford their own drones. In the second half of 2010, the top ten hedge funds earned more than the world’s largest six banks combined. Those in power retain it by erecting powerful barriers to keep challengers at bay. Today, insurgent forces dismantle those barriers more quickly and easily than ever, only to find that they themselves become vulnerable in the process. Accessible and captivating, Naím offers a revolutionary look at the inevitable end of power—and how it will change your world.

    never again...

    and so it happened... I was warned by various people that Western Digital external hard drives are no good but alas, I still decided to get it because of its price, wonderfully advertised features and generally good reviews... but lo-and-behold, not a year passed by as it has failed me...and with that, my entire backup went into a dark void... the memories of all sorts, movies, music and what not...and it is unknown at this time whether it's recoverable... it worked fine only the first time, when I got it...it felt really flimsy though... starting from the second use, the noise became loud but it still operated a few times, even though each time it sounded as though it was on its last breath... I thought that maybe the noise is normal but I guess it is hard to argue with the clear signs of demise... I am waiting for a verdict on the possibility of recovery and the quotes for data recovery from Western Digital partners (the drive is still under the warranty but Western Digital doesn't... 1/5 Amazon Customer (Brooklyn, NY United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    V2.0 Of The My Book Series Is Out - Will It Be More Reliable Than V1.0?

    [Update: 3/2009: It's been more than a year since I wrote this lengthy review and I wanted to return and let people know how these drives are performing.I have a total of ten of these drives - four the newer series referenced here, six the slightly older model that looks a bit different but is otherwise interchangeable. I am happy to report than only one drive suffered some intermittent failures in read/writing since purchase. No data was ever lost, but the problem was becoming annoying and I replaced it using their warranty service. I've had no drive failures otherwise and no data integrity problems. I find it important not to block the ventilation holes and am always on the lookout for any early signs of drive failure, such as ticking noises, grinding, or excessive drive whine, and have noted nothing thus far.Overall, I am fully satisfied with this drive series and believe WD is definitely proven competent in the external drive marketplace.]... 4/5 Phillip M.

    Long lasting sidekick

    4/5 R. J. C. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: WD My Book Essential 750 GB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive (Personal Computers) Have used it for 8 years and still no problems! Had to replace the power cord but that was strictly the cat's fault and not a faulty product. Sure, I have several portable hard drives laying around but this one is the trusty sidekick that stands next to my computer speakers. Transfer time isn't bad because of the USB 2.0. I definitely got my money's worth out of this product and recommend Western Digital for all your digital storage problems. I would say the only negative is the external power source, but it's not a terribly big deal since I don't lug this (nor do I need to) around with my laptop.
