Ten Years to Midnight
  • Author : Blair H. Sheppard
  • Publisher : Berrett-Koehler Publishers
  • Release Date : 2020-08-04
  • Category: Business & Economics
  • Pages : 216
  • ISBN Code: 1523088753

Summary: In conversations with people all over the world, from government officials and business leaders to taxi drivers and schoolteachers, Blair Sheppard, global leader for strategy and leadership at PricewaterhouseCoopers, discovered they all had surprisingly similar concerns. In this prescient and pragmatic book, he and his team sum up these concerns in what they call the ADAPT framework: Asymmetry of wealth; Disruption wrought by the unexpected and often problematic consequences of technology; Age disparities—stresses caused by very young or very old populations in developed and emerging countries; Populism as a symptom of the breakdown in global and national consensus; and loss of Trust in the institutions that underpin and stabilize society. These concerns are in turn precipitating four crises: a crisis of prosperity, a crisis of technology, a crisis of institutional legitimacy, and a crisis of leadership. Sheppard and his team analyze the complex roots of these crises—but they also offer solutions, albeit often seemingly counterintuitive ones. For example, in an era of globalization, we need to place a much greater emphasis on developing self-sustaining local economies. And as technology permeates our lives, we need computer scientists and engineers conversant with sociology and psychology and poets who can code. The authors argue persuasively that we have only a decade to make headway on these problems. But if we tackle them now, thoughtfully, imaginatively, creatively, and energetically, in ten years we could be looking at a dawn instead of darkness.

  • Pages : 240

Summary: "In this book, Jessica Ingram presents photographs of landscapes that, to unaware passersby, look like nearly any other place in the Deep South: a fenced-in backyard, a dirt road covered with overgrowth, a field grooved with muddy tire prints. However, these seemingly ordinary places hold pivotal, often tragic, stories of the civil rights movement, though rarely is there a plaque with dates or names or any manmade indication of their importance. Most of these "un-memorialized" places are where bodies of African Americans-activists, paper mill workers, sharecroppers, and children-were found, victims of racial violence. These images are interspersed with oral histories from victims' families, journalists, and investigators, as well as newspaper microfiche, FBI files, and other archival ephemera. The narrative intensity grows in power, complexity, and depth as the book goes on and the history unfolds"--

James, the scandalously uncivilized Duke of Harland, requires a bride with a spotless reputation for a strictly business arrangement. Lust is prohibited and love is out of the question. Four ladies. Three days. What could go wrong? She is not like the others… Charlene Beckett, the unacknowledged daughter of an earl and a courtesan, has just been offered a life-altering fortune to pose as her half-sister, Lady Dorothea, and win the duke’s proposal. All she must do is: * Be the perfect English rose [Ha!] * Breathe, smile, and curtsy in impossibly tight gowns [blast Lady Dorothea’s sylph-like figure] * Charm and seduce a wild duke [without appearing to try] * Keep said duke far, far from her heart [no matter how tempting] When secrets are revealed and passion overwhelms, James must decide if the last lady he should want is really everything he needs. And Charlene must decide if the promise of a new life is worth risking everything . . . including her heart.
