China   s Long March of Modernisation

With the support of its strong leadership and industrious population of close to one billion working Chinese, fully committed and dedicated to its peaceful development and comprehensive modernization, China is forging ahead on the driver’s seat in various fields of human endeavour. A leading global role is resourceful and resurgent New China’s manifest destiny, with the confidence of attaining (and regaining) the world’s largest economy within the coming decade. Holding high the new banner of the Fourth Industrial Revolution IR 4.0, China will continue steadfastly and strongly on its Long March of Modernization. In the military field, the People’s Liberation Army has developed from a ragtag fighting force of some 20,000 troops into a two-million-strong military that ‘s presently rated as the world’s third strongest after its counterparts in the US and Russia. Speaking at a grand rally to mark the 90th anniversary of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing on 1 August 2017, President Xi Jinping said the PLA has transformed itself from a “millet plus rifles” single-service force to one that has fully-fledged services. Having basically completed its mechanization, the PLA is moving rapidly toward having “strong” informationized armed forces. (12) President Xi stressed that China must step up the PLA ‘s transformation into a world-class military that’s ready to fight and win wars in defence of its national sovereignty. (13) To quote from the May 2017 Report by the US Department of Defense: “... The PLA is pursuing an ambitious modernization program that aligns with China’s two centenary goals...” “DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) director, Lieutenant General Robert Ashley, emphasized that “China Military Power 2019” (published and released by the DIA on 15 January 2019) showed China’s evolution from a domestically oriented force to a global one. He told reporters the PLA was changing “from a defensive, inflexible ground-based force charged with domestic and peripheral security responsibilities to a joint, highly agile, expeditionary, and power-projecting arm of Chinese foreign policy that engages in military diplomacy and operations across the globe,” Gabriel Black reported on 30 January 2019 on the World Socialist Web Site. (14) According to President Xi, the PLA’s military mechanization will basically be achieved with advanced IT application and much enhanced strategic capabilities by 2020, on the eve of the CPC’s centenary on 1 July 2021. The people’s armed forces will be transformed into a world-class military by mid-21st century – to mark the centenary of the founding of New China/the People’s Republic of China/the PRC on 1 October 2049. In his 56-page statement to the Senate Armed Services Committee on 15 March 2018, Adm. Harry B. Harris Jr., then naval head of US Pacific Command (USPACOM), wrote that on the current trajectory, the PLA will likely attain its goals of completing military modernisation by 2033 and achieving “world class” status by 2049 “well ahead of the projected completion dates...” With the companion volume CHINA’S RENAISSANCE, the following narrative adumbrates the saga of CHINA’S LONG MARCH OF MODERNISATION and the phenomenal transformation of the world’s most populous nation of nearly one and a half billion Chinese -- from abject poverty to its dream of becoming a fully developed and modernized country by mid-21st century. (15) It’s the greatest development story in human history!

Broken Genius

When William Shockley invented the transistor, the world was changed forever and he was awarded the Nobel Prize. But today Shockley is often remembered only for his incendiary campaigning about race, intelligence, and genetics. His dubious research led him to donate to the Nobel Prize sperm bank and preach his inflammatory ideas widely, making shocking pronouncements on the uselessness of remedial education and the sterilization of individuals with IQs below 100. Ultimately his crusade destroyed his reputation and saw him vilified on national television, yet he died proclaiming his work on race as his greatest accomplishment. Now, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Joel N. Shurkin offers the first biography of this contradictory and controversial man. With unique access to the private Shockley archives, Shurkin gives an unflinching account of how such promise ended in such ignominy.

China   s Renaissance

After a century of humiliation, China re-emerged as an independent and sovereign nation following the1949 Communist victory in the post-WW2 civil war. Chairman Mao Tse-tung said that "the Chinese people (then) comprising one quarter of humanity, have now stood up..." His grand mission, as well as the aspiration of many Chinese, was for China "to become rich and strong" again, which it had been historically for millennia. From a dirt poor country, China's phenomenal progress led to its rise as the world's second largest economy in 2010; its GDP grew from US$216.8 billion in 1978 to US$8.2 trillion in 2012. New China has freed over 700 million people from the clutches of extreme poverty -- more than twice the present population of the United States. China's urbanization has also been unparalleled in history -- from 17.9% (180 million urban residents) in 1978 to 51.27% (710 million) by the end of 2012, when its urban population exceeded its rural for the first time in its long history of over 5,000 years. China's previous renaissance occurred during the Northern Song dynasty (960-1126)., about one millennium ago. The present leadership in Beijing has described the "Chinese Dream" as a work in progress over a time span of one century (1949-2049), when China will be completely reconstructed and rejuvenated. The "rise of China" has been named the top news story of the 21st century by the Global Language Monitor. And, it's probably the greatest story ever of the development and transformation of a major nation in the annals of the human race.

American Far West in the Twentieth Century

In this richly insightful survey that represents the culmination of decades of research, a leading western specialist argues that the unique history of the American West did not end in the year 1900, as is commonly assumed, but was shaped as much--if not more--by events and innovations in the twentieth century. Earl Pomeroy gathers copious information on economic, political, social, intellectual, and business issues, thoughtfully evaluates it, and draws a new and more nuanced portrait of the West than has ever been depicted before. Pomeroy mines extensive published and unpublished sources to show how the post-1900 West charted a path that was influenced by, but separate from, the rest of the country and the world. He deals not only with the West's transition from an agricultural to an urban region but also with the important contributions of minority racial and ethnic groups and women in that transformation. Pomeroy describes a modern West--increasingly urban, transnational, and multicultural--that has overcome much of the isolation that challenged it at an earlier time. His final book is nothing short of the definitive source on that West.

In only a few years, Google has become an authoritative provider of multiple products which have changed the digital information landscape. This book discusses how libraries can go beyond Google’s basic search and Scholar functions to expand services for their patrons. Respected authorities reveal the expanding variety of new Google applications developed in the past few years, many of which have not received wide attention and are as yet not often used in libraries. Applications explored include Google Co-op, Google News, Google Docs & Spreadsheets, Google Calendar, and Google Talk. This book also discusses different important aspects of the company’s expansion of functions, such as the failure of the Google Answers experiment, the broad variety of free Google applications that librarians can use to collaborate, and the success of Google’s Blogger, among others. A helpful chronology of Google’s growth is provided, as well as comparative analyses between various Google functions and other functions that are currently available. The book is extensively referenced. This book is an invaluable resource for academic librarians, public librarians, school librarians, library science faculty, and special librarians. This book was published as a special issue of the Journal of Library Administration.

Digital Play

In a marketplace that demands perpetual upgrades, the survival of interactive play ultimately depends on the adroit management of negotiations between game producers and youthful consumers of this new medium. The authors suggest a model of expansion that encompasses technological innovation, game design, and marketing practices. Their case study of video gaming exposes fundamental tensions between the opposing forces of continuity and change in the information economy: between the play culture of gaming and the spectator culture of television, the dynamism of interactive media and the increasingly homogeneous mass-mediated cultural marketplace, and emerging flexible post-Fordist management strategies and the surviving techniques of mass-mediated marketing. Digital Play suggests a future not of democratizing wired capitalism but instead of continuing tensions between "access to" and "enclosure in" technological innovation, between inertia and diversity in popular culture markets, and between commodification and free play in the cultural industries.

Japan and the Internet Revolution challenges the portrait of Japan as a technologically slow-moving nation, lacking in creativity and entrepreneurial spirit. Overcoming the substantial barriers erected by the Japanese government to the introduction of the Internet, promoters and entrepreneurs managed to create a flexible and dynamic Internet society. From a slow start, Japan has emerged as the global leader in the mobile internet, the host of arguably the strongest nation-specific web-presence in the world, and a country determined to remain near the forefront of the digital revolution.

Catching Up

Disparities between the economic development of nations have widened throughout the twentieth century, and they show no sign of closing. In the nineteenth century, the economic potential of developed countries was three times that of the rest of the world. Today the gap is twenty times greater, and the trend is increasing. In this provocative reexamination of theories of accelerated development, or "catching up," Vladislav L. Inozemtsev traces the evolution of thinking about how countries lagging behind can most swiftly move forward, and assesses their prospects for success in this effort. Inozemtsev reviews the experience of the Soviet Union, as well as the recent experience of Japan, China, and Southeast Asia. He finds that those countries that have moved forward most rapidly have successfully adapted new technology to old processes. But even then, they face daunting odds, as they grapple with the need to change their population's ideas and behavior. And in the 1990s, their rates of development have noticeably declined. "Catching Up" assesses prospects for successful application of theories of accelerated development in the global economy. Inozemtsev's pessimistic conclusion is that rapid industrial progress is not achievable in the information society of the twenty-first century. Inozemtsev reaches this conclusion after reviewing theories of accelerated development thinking from the diverse viewpoints of the 1940s and 1950s, to the more intensive ideological polarization of the 1960s. Inozemtsev believes it will be impossible for non-Western nations to "catch up" with the West because of their inability to generate or control information and knowledge.

The Hidden Intelligence explores what intuition is and is not, and why it is often hidden. Based on interviews with executives from Fortune 500 organizations to entrepreneurial startups, the book is full of insights the author has gathered over the years working with creative problem solving and ideation techniques. It brings our intuition into the mainstream of those skills crucial to running a successful business. The Hidden Intelligence explores how intuition in its various forms helps to create new products and marketing strategies at large and organizations. It explains what is and what is not intuition, why it is often hidden, and demonstrates that when it is used correctly, the intuitively-based decision is always correct.

The Political Economy of Japanese Foreign Direct Investment in the US and the UK

Inward investment by Japanese manufacturing multinationals has come to have a profound influence on the UK and US economies. Focusing on the 1970s and 1980s, this study looks at the political economy of the investment location decision using an original analytical framework and four detailed case studies. In addition to the larger issues of protectionism, globalization and inter-firm competition, it investigates whether and how subnational factors can influence the specific subnational locational decision - an issue of great interest to any subnational region attempting to adapt to structural shifts in the global economy.
