Globalization and Its Enemies
Daniel Cohen
026203350X
April 2006
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Cohen's new work debunks the commonly held wisdom on both sides of the globalization debate: that it's a new phenomenon, that it thrives on the exploitation of poor countries by rich ones, and that it raises all boats-rich and poor. Globalization is no novelty, Cohen argues, but began with Spanish Conquistadors, was adopted by Great Britain, and is now entering a new stage based on radical advances in transportation and communication. Cohen divides globalization's enemies into two camps united by a single assumption: "that globalization imposes a model that people do not want." Cohen asserts that "the truth ... is probably the reverse." Globalization increasingly involves interactions among rich countries, excluding rather than exploiting undeveloped nations. This gives impoverished countries a powerful image of...

Heart of Change: Real Life Stories of how People Change Their Organizations
John P. Kotter
1578512549
January 2002
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
The Heart of Change is the follow-up to John Kotter's enormously popular book Leading Change, in which he outlines a framework for implementing change that sidesteps many of the pitfalls common to organizations looking to turn themselves around. The essence of Kotter's message is this: the reason so many change initiatives fail is that they rely too much on "data gathering, analysis, report writing, and presentations" instead of a more creative approach aimed at grabbing the "feelings that motivate useful action." In The Heart of Change, Kotter, with the help of Dan Cohen, a partner at Deloitte Consulting, shows how his eight-step approach has worked at over 100 organizations. In just about every case, change happened because the players were led to "see" and "feel" the change. In one example, a sales representative...

Consumption and lifestyles in the World's richest countries are a significant cause of global environmental problems.

Histroy, Labour and Freedom
G. A. Cohen
0198247796
Apr 1989
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Taking Karl Marx's theory of history as their point of departure, these essays, extensively revised and rewritten for this volume, chronicle the growth of humanity's power to produce, and the suffering that the byproducts of this freedom--exploitation, lack of freedom, indignity--have caused.
Cohen begins with a discussion and defense of historical materialism before expressing his own reservations about the theory, arguing that the truth of historical materialism is far more open than many Marxists believe. He then addresses some of the principal difficulties under which workers labor
in contemporary capitalist class society, offering important new insights for all students of politics, political theory, and Marxism.

The Ict Revolution
Daniel Cohen
0199270104
May 2004
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
The view that the Internet and the information and communication technology (ICT) revolution would deliver a frictionless economy without recessions is, at least for the time being, dead. This book takes stock of the ICT revolution, going well below the surface to ask and answer a few key
questions: Did the ICT revolution contribute to the recent divergence in the growth record? And if this is the case, how and why were some countries better equipped to exploit the potential of ICT?

The naive approach to the Internet views e-commerce as a means to achieve a perfect world of competition. By making information cheap and readily available, it should allow the affluent consumer to raise competitive pressure on firms, help the firms themselves to put competitive pressure on their
own suppliers, and so on. For...

Misfortunes of Prosperity
Daniel Cohen
0262032309
Aug 1995
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
translated by Jacqueline Lindenfeld


Are robust economic growth and tight social cohesion something of the past, or is contemporary stagnation simply part of a long economic cycle that is bound to bring brighter days? Should government step in to boost productivity and income, or does economic globalization necessitate a new laissez-faire model for the twenty-first century?

The Misfortunes of Prosperity elucidates the current debates on these and other questions in a fast-paced and incisive tour of the dominant ideas in political economy, summarizing historical and theoretical perspectives on the causes of economic growth in the United States, Western Europe, Japan and elsewhere as the twentieth-century draws to a close.

Daniel Cohen discusses the effects of the...


Manhattan Project

April 1999
Hardcover
·
 
From School Library Journal
Grade 7-10-A solid recounting of an irrevocable turning point in world history-the creation of the atomic bomb. Cohen introduces the key players and details the evolution of this project from its beginnings in New York during the early years of World War II to its completion in New Mexico. He describes the events and reactions surrounding the use of the bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August of 1945. Although the book focuses on the United States, thwarted German research attempts and Soviet and German espionage efforts are included. Cohen's inclusion of intriguing tidbits and interesting quotations makes history come alive in this volume. A chronology, an excellent bibliography, an index, and appropriate black-and-white photos add to the book's accessibility and usefulness.Joanne K. Cecere, Highland High...


The Wealth of the World and the Poverty of Nations
Daniel Cohen
0262032538
Mar 1998
Hardcover
·
 
The Economist September 12, 1998
"Daniel Cohen's book begins as an accessible, if intellectual, discussion of globalisation but rapidly moves on to a far more ambitious canvas, that of what it describes as the third industrial revolution... his book is provocative."

Book Description
The present situation, in which poor nations are becoming richer and rich nations poorer, gives credence to the idea that the former phenomenon is responsible for the latter. The great fear of many in the West is that trade with India, China, or the former Soviet Union will cause a collapse of the welfare state and of society's well-being.

"Globalization" has become a loaded term. Should we believe, literally, that trade with poor nations can be blamed for our "impoverishment"? In this book,...

Review
"Cohen's is a slim volume that looks at the big picture...ideas that will drive the next decade." -- Michael Dumiak, U.S. Banker
"Explaining capitalism in a scant 124 pages is a daunting task, but Cohen cuts to the quick..." -- Pete Babb, Wired

Book Description
The "modern times" of the early twentieth century saw the rise of the assembly line and the belief that standardization would make the world a better place. Yet along with greater production efficiency came dehumanization, as the division of labor created many jobs requiring mindless repetition rather than conscious involvement with work.

In our own modern times, a comparable revolution has been wrought by information technology. In Our Modern Times, Daniel Cohen traces the roots of this revolution back to...
