Amid the biggest economic transformation in a century, many Americans are uncertain about the future-there are many paths to opportunity but few people travel them. In America's Moment, American CEOs, technologists, community leaders, educators, management experts and government officials suggest an agenda for an exciting future in this time of change. Illustrated by people who are showing the way, it includes action people can take in their own community: preparing for success; using the reach of the Internet and data to innovate jobs and to reach new markets; using technology to match employers and workers; and transitioning to a "no-collar" working world. America's Moment describes how the forces of change can become tools that open opportunity to everyone.

  • The evolution of Andrei Sakharov's thinking / Serge Schmemann
  • The scientist as prophet : Sakharov's world and ours / J. Bryan Hehir
  • The soul and Sakharov / William Swing
  • Environmental effects of nuclear war / Raymond Jeanloz
  • Decoding the biosphere and the infectious disease threat / Lucy Shapiro
  • Diagnosis, reinvented for the individual / Elizabeth Holmes
  • The Sakharov conditions, disruptive technologies, and human rights / Christopher Stubbs
  • New dilemmas in ethics, technology, and war : Sakharov's principles in today's world / James O. Ellis Jr.
  • A military perspective / Jim Mattis
  • Moral reasoning and practical purpose / David Holloway
  • A global commons : a vision whose time has come / James E. Goodby.
Andrei Sakharov holds an honored place in the pantheon of the world's greatest scientists, reformers, and champions of human rights. But his embrace of human rights did not come through a sudden conversion; he came to it in stages. Drawing from a 2014 Hoover Institution conference focused on Sakharov's life and principles, this book tells the compelling story of his metamorphosis from a distinguished physical scientist into a courageous, outspoken dissident humanitarian voice. His extraordinary life saw him go from playing the leading role in designing and building the most powerful thermonuclear weapon (the so-called hydrogen bomb) ever exploded to demanding an end to the testing of such weapons and their eventual elimination. The essays detail his transformation, as he appealed first to his scientific colleagues abroad and then tomankind at large, for solidarity in resolving the growing threats to human survival-many of which stemmed from science and technology. Ultimately, the distinguished contributors show how the work and thinking of this eminent Russian nuclear physicist and courageous human rights campaigner can help find solutions to the nuclear threats of today.

Book
270 pages, [20] pages of plates : ilustrations ; 21 cm.
A continuation of his earlier work on Czechoslovak exile organizations, Fighting Communism from Afar: The Council of Free Czechoslovakia, this volume focuses on the activities of exile organizations after 1968. The author examines a substantial collection of personal letters, memoranda, letters to government officials, and journals published by organizations from archives in the Czech Republic, Italy, the United Kingdom, and the United States, as well as interviews with surviving members and functionaries of these organizations. The material illustrates the hardships, illusions, and disappointments of individuals who worked relentlessly for the restoration of civil rights and democracy in Czechoslovakia and to end the Soviet occupation of the country. These efforts were hampered by a lack of interest on the part of Western democracies for whom peaceful coexistence with the Soviet Union and its satellites was of paramount importance.

From drone warfare in the Middle East to digital spying by the National Security Agency, the U.S. government has harnessed the power of cutting-edge technology to awesome effect. But what happens when ordinary people have the same tools at their fingertips? Advances in cybertechnology, biotechnology, and robotics mean that more people than ever before have access to potentially dangerous technologies--from drones to computer networks and biological agents--which could be used to attack states and private citizens alike. In The Future of Violence, law and security experts Benjamin Wittes and Gabriella Blum detail the myriad possibilities, challenges, and enormous risks present in the modern world, and argue that if our national governments can no longer adequately protect us from harm, they will lose their legitimacy. Consequently, governments, companies, and citizens must rethink their security efforts to protect lives and liberty. In this brave new world where many little brothers are as menacing as any Big Brother, safeguarding our liberty and privacy may require strong domestic and international surveillance and regulatory controls. Maintaining security in this world where anyone can attack anyone requires a global perspective, with more multinational forces and greater action to protect (and protect against) weaker states who do not yet have the capability to police their own people. Drawing on political thinkers from Thomas Hobbes to the Founders and beyond, Wittes and Blum show that, despite recent protestations to the contrary, security and liberty are mutually supportive, and that we must embrace one to ensure the other. The Future of Violence is at once an introduction to our emerging world--one in which students can print guns with 3-D printers and scientists' manipulations of viruses can be recreated and unleashed by ordinary people--and an authoritative blueprint for how government must adapt in order to survive and protect us.

vii, 388 pages : illustrations (some color) ; 29 cm
  • Icons of knowledge
  • Two small embryos in spirits of wine
  • Like flies on the parlor ceiling
  • Drawing and Darwinism
  • Illustrating the magic word
  • Professors and progress
  • Visual strategies
  • Schematics, forgery, and the so-called educated
  • Imperial grids
  • Setting standards
  • Forbidden fruit
  • Creative copying
  • Trials and tributes
  • Scandal for the people
  • A hundred Haeckels
  • The textbook illustration
  • Iconoclasm
  • The shock of the copy.
Pictures from the past powerfully shape current views of the world. In books, television programs, and websites, new images appear alongside others that have survived from decades ago. Among the most famous are drawings of embryos by the Darwinist Ernst Haeckel in which humans and other vertebrates begin identical, then diverge toward their adult forms. But these icons of evolution are notorious, too: within months of their publication in 1868, a colleague alleged fraud, and Haeckel's many enemies have repeated the charge ever since. His embryos nevertheless became a textbook staple until, in 1997, a biologist accused him again, and creationist advocates of intelligent design forced his figures out. How could the most controversial pictures in the history of science have become some of the most widely seen? In Haeckel's Embryos, Nick Hopwood tells this extraordinary story in full for the first time. He tracks the drawings and the charges against them from their genesis in the nineteenth century to their continuing involvement in innovation in the present day, and from Germany to Britain to the United States. Emphasizing the changes worked by circulation and copying, interpretation and debate, Hopwood uses the case to explore how pictures succeed and fail, gain acceptance and spark controversy. Along the way, he reveals how embryonic development was made a process that we can see, compare, and discuss, and how copying - usually dismissed as unoriginal - can be creative, contested, and consequential. With a wealth of expertly contextualized illustrations, Haeckel's Embryos recaptures the shocking novelty of pictures that enthralled schoolchildren and outraged priests, and highlights the remarkable ways these images kept on shaping knowledge as they aged.

  • Background facts / James Piereson
  • The broad-based rise in return to top talent / Joshua D. Rauh
  • The economic determinants of top income inequality / Charles I. Jones
  • Intergenerational mobility and income inequality / Jörg L. Spenkuch
  • The effects of redistribution policies on growth and unemployment / Casey B. Mulligan
  • Income and wealth in America / Kevin M. Murphy and Emmanuel Saez
  • Conclusions and solutions / John H. Cochrane, Lee E. Ohanian, and George P. Shultz
  • Remembering Gary Becker / Edward P. Lazear and George P. Shultz.
Drawing from a 2014 Hoover Institution Conference on Inequality in honor of Gary Becker, a group of distinguished contributors explore various measures of inequality in America and address the issue of whether or not it is increasing. In looking at this question and examining policy implications, the authors draw on research on human capital and intergenerational mobility. The authors suggest that the emphasis on inequality and redistribution, while not wrong, is nevertheless misplaced, for it may lead us to adopt policies that will disrupt the progress we have made while doing nothing to promote the kind of growth that is essential to national progress.

Drawing from a 2014 Hoover Institution Conference on Inequality in honor of Gary Becker, a group of distinguished contributors explore various measures of inequality in America and address the issue of whether or not it is increasing. In looking at this question and examining policy implications, the authors draw on research on human capital and intergenerational mobility. The authors suggest that the emphasis on inequality and redistribution, while not wrong, is nevertheless misplaced, for it may lead us to adopt policies that will disrupt the progress we have made while doing nothing to promote the kind of growth that is essential to national progress.
