This volume looks into the influence of these mobile elites on the fundamental changes that took place in both empires during the long nineteenth... more...

  • What's Your Future Worth?by Peter Neuwirth

    Berrett-Koehler Publishers 2015; US$ 18.95

    We weigh every significant decision based on how it will affect our future. But when it comes to figuring that out, we mostly make the process up as we go along. While financial professional Peter Neuwirth can’t help you actually predict the future, he can offer a simple, systematic way to make much better guesses about it—and so make better decisions. Neuwirth... more...

  • The Son Also Risesby Gregory Clark

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 19.95 US$ 18.15

    How much of our fate is tied to the status of our parents and grandparents? How much does it influence our children? More than we wish to believe.
