(H/B) SKIN IN THE GAME
HIDDEN ASYMMETRIES IN DAILY LIFE
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0037

"Skin in the game means that you do not pay attention to what people say, only to what they do, and how much of their neck they are putting on the line" Citizens, artisans, police, fishermen, political activists and entrepreneurs all have skin in the game. Policy wonks, corporate executives, many academics, bankers and most journalists don't. It's all about having something to lose and sharing risks with others. In his most provocative and practical book yet, Nassim Nicholas Taleb shows that skin in the game, often seen as the foundation ...

(H/B) A CERTAIN IDEA OF FRANCE
THE LIFE OF CHARLES DE GAULLE
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0045

In six weeks in the early summer of 1940, France was over-run by German troops and quickly surrendered. The French government of Marshal Petain sued for peace and signed an armistice. One little-known junior French general, refusing to accept defeat, made his way to England. On 18 June he spoke to his compatriots over the BBC, urging them to rally to him in London. 'Whatever happens, the flame of French resistance must not be extinguished and will not be extinguished.' At that moment, Charles de Gaulle entered into history. For the rest of...

(H/B) THE COLD WAR
A WORLD HISTORY
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0044

As Germany and then Japan surrendered in 1945 there was a tremendous hope that a new and much better world could be created from the moral and physical ruins of the conflict. Instead, the combination of the huge power of the USA and USSR and the near-total collapse of most of their rivals created a unique, grim new environment: the Cold War. For over forty years the demands of the Cold War shaped the life of almost all of us. There was no part of the world where East and West did not, ultimately, demand a blind and absolute allegiance, and...

(H/B) ENLIGHTENMENT NOW
THE CASE FOR REASON, SCIENCE, HUMANISM, AND PROGRESS
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0039

If you follow the news, the 21st century doesn't seem to be going so well. From 9/11 to the Great Recession, the Syrian civil war, the Ebola epidemic, growing inequality, racial unrest, and bitterly contested elections, the world seems to be sinking into chaos and hatred. Moralizing commentators tell us that the decline of religious belief and close-knit communities has left us spiritually adrift, without a grounding in moral values, so it's no wonder we're suffering through an epidemic of loneliness, unhappiness, and suicide. And then the...

(H/B) THE BOOK OF WHY
THE NEW SCIENCE OF CAUSE AND EFFECT
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0043

A pioneer of artificial intelligence shows how the study of causality revolutionized science and the world. 'Correlation does not imply causation.' This mantra was invoked by scientists for decades in order to avoid taking positions as to whether one thing caused another, such as smoking and cancer and carbon dioxide and global warming. But today, that taboo is dead. The causal revolution, sparked by world-renowned computer scientist Judea Pearl and his colleagues, has cut through a century of confusion and placed cause and effect on a fir...

(H/B) THE RISE AND FALL OF THE BRITISH NATION
A TWENTIETH-CENTURY HISTORY
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0041

From the acclaimed author of Britain's War Machine and The Shock of the Old, a bold reassessment of Britain's twentieth century. It is usual to see the United Kingdom as an island of continuity in an otherwise convulsed and unstable Europe; its political history a smooth sequence of administrations, from building a welfare state to coping with decline. Nobody would dream of writing the history of Germany, say, or the Soviet Union in this way. David Edgerton's major new history breaks out of the confines of traditional British national hist...

(P/B) NO IS NOT ENOUGH
DEFEATING THE NEW SHOCK POLITICS
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0030

Naomi Klein - award-winning journalist, bestselling author of No Logo, The Shock Doctrine and This Changes Everything, scourge of brand bullies and corporate liars - gives us the toolkit we need to survive our surreal, shocking age. 'This is a look at how we arrived at this surreal political moment, how to keep it from getting a lot worse, and how, if we keep our heads, we can flip the script.' Remember when love was supposed to Trump hate? Remember when the oil companies and bankers seemed to be running scared? What the hell happened? An...

(H/B) ALL THINGS MADE NEW
WRITINGS ON THE REFORMATION
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0034

The Reformation which engulfed England and Europe in the sixteenth century was one of the most highly-charged, bloody and transformative periods in their history. Ever since, it has remained one of the most contested. Diarmaid MacCulloch is one of the leading British historians of this turbulent and endlessly fascinating era. Many essays in this volume expand upon his now classic Reformation: Europe's House Divided, tracing, for example, the evolution of the English Prayer Book and Bible or reassessing the impact of the Reformation on Cath...

(H/B) LIFE 3.0
BEING HUMAN IN THE AGE OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0031

We stand at the beginning of a new era. What was once science fiction is fast becoming reality, as AI transforms war, crime, justice, jobs and society-and, even, our very sense of what it means to be human. More than any other technology, AI has the potential to revolutionize our collective future - and there's nobody better situated to explore that future than Max Tegmark, an MIT professor and co-founder of the Future of Life Institute, whose work has helped mainstream research on how to keep AI beneficial.In this deeply researched and vi...

(P/B) AGE OF ANGER
A HISTORY OF THE PRESENT
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0033

How can we explain the origins of the great wave of paranoid hatreds that seem inescapable in our close-knit world - from American 'shooters' and ISIS to Trump, from a rise in vengeful nationalism across the world to racism and misogyny on social media? In Age of Anger, Pankaj Mishra answers our bewilderment by casting his gaze back to the eighteenth century, before leading us to the present. He shows that as the world became modern those who were unable to fulfil its promises - freedom, stability and prosperity - were increasingly suscept...

(H/B) OUTLANDISH KNIGHT
THE BYZANTINE LIFE OF STEVEN RUNCIMAN
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0029

The biography of one of the greatest British historians - but also of a uniquely strange and various man In his enormously long life, Steven Runciman managed not just to be a great historian of the Crusades and Byzantium, but Grand Orator of the Orthodox Church, a member of the Order of Whirling Dervishes, Greek Astronomer Royal and Laird of Eigg. His friendships, curiosities and intrigues entangled him in a huge array of different artistic movements, civil wars, Cold War betrayals and, above all, the rediscovery of the history of the East...

(H/B) THE PURSUIT OF POWER
EUROPE, 1815-1914
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0028

A masterpiece which brings to life an extraordinarly turbulent and dramatic era of revolutionary change. The Pursuit of Power draws on a lifetime of thinking about nineteenth-century Europe to create an extraordinarily rich, surprising and entertaining panorama of a continent undergoing drastic transformation. The book aims to reignite the sense of wonder that permeated this remarkable era, as rulers and ruled navigated overwhelming cultural, political and technological changes. It was a time where what was seen as modern with amazing spee...

(H/B) WORLD ORDER
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0024

As Henry Kissinger observes in this magisterial book, there has never been a true 'world order'. For most of history, civilizations have defined their own concepts of order, each one envisioning its distinct principles as universally relevant. Now, as international affairs take place on a global basis, these historic concepts of world order are meeting. Every region participates in questions of high policy in every other, often instantaneously - yet there is no consensus among the major actors about the rules and limits guiding this proces...

(H/B) THE SOUL OF THE MARIONETTE
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0026

In The Soul of the Marionette, John Gray draws together the religious, philosophic and fantastical traditions that question the very idea of human freedom. We flatter ourselves about the nature of free will and yet the most enormous forces - biological, physical, metaphysical - constrain our every action. Many writers and intellectuals have always understood this, but instead of embracing our condition we battle against it, with everyone from world conquerors to modern scientists dreaming of a 'human dominion' almost comically at odds with...

Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0022

Michael Lewis, the Master of the Big Story, is back with Flash Boys. If you thought Wall Street was about alpha males standing in trading pits hollering at each other, think again. That world is dead. Now, the world's money is traded by computer code, inside black boxes in heavily guarded buildings. Even the experts entrusted with your cash don't know what's happening to it. And the very few who do aren't about to tell - because they're making a killing. This is a market that's rigged, out of control and out of sight; a market in which the...

(P/B) THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0023

Forget everything you think you know about global warming. It's not about carbon - it's about capitalism. The good news is that we can seize this crisis to transform our failed economic system and build something radically better. In her most provocative book yet, Naomi Klein, author of the global bestsellers The Shock Doctrine and No Logo, exposes the myths that are clouding climate debate. You have been told the market will save us, when in fact the addiction to profit and growth is digging us in deeper every day. You have been told it's...

(H/B) GERMANY
MEMORIES OF A NATION
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0025

From Neil MacGregor, the author of A History of the World in 100 Objects, this is a view of Germany like no other. For the past 140 years, Germany has been the central power in continental Europe. Twenty-five years ago a new German state came into being. How much do we really understand this new Germany, and how do its people now understand themselves? Neil MacGregor argues that uniquely for any European country, no coherent, over-arching narrative of Germany's history can be constructed, for in Germany both geography and history have alwa...

(H/B) THE BODY ECONOMIC
WHY AUSTERITY KILLS
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0019

The global financial crisis has had a seismic impact upon the wealth of nations. But we have little sense of how it affects one of the most fundamental issues of all: our physical and mental health. This highly significant new book, based on the authors' own groundbreaking research, looks at the daily lives of people affected by financial crisis, from the Great Depression of the 1930s, to post-communist Russia, to the US foreclosure crisis of the late 2000s. Why, it asks, did Sweden experience a fall in suicides during its banking crisis? ...
