The Fourth Turning by William Strauss,Neil Howe Summary

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • “A startling vision of what the cycles of history predict for the future.”—USA Weekend William Strauss and Neil Howe will change the way you see the world—and your place in it. With blazing originality, The Fourth Turning illuminates the past, explains the present, and reimagines the future. Most remarkably, it offers an utterly persuasive prophecy about how America’s past will predict its future. Strauss and Howe base this vision on a provocative theory of American history. The authors look back five hundred years and uncover a distinct pattern: Modern history moves in cycles, each one lasting about the length of a long human life, each composed of four eras—or "turnings"—that last about twenty years and that always arrive in the same order. In The Fourth Turning, the authors illustrate these cycles using a brilliant analysis of the post-World War II period. First comes a High, a period of confident expansion as a new order takes root after the old has been swept away. Next comes an Awakening, a time of spiritual exploration and rebellion against the now-established order. Then comes an Unraveling, an increasingly troubled era in which individualism triumphs over crumbling institutions. Last comes a Crisis—the Fourth Turning—when society passes through a great and perilous gate in history. Together, the four turnings comprise history's seasonal rhythm of growth, maturation, entropy, and rebirth. The Fourth Turning offers bold predictions about how all of us can prepare, individually and collectively, for America’s next rendezvous with destiny.

Trump and His Generals by Peter Bergen Summary

From one of America's preeminent national security journalists, an explosive, news-breaking account of Donald Trump's collision with the American national security establishment, and with the world It is a simple fact that no president in American history brought less foreign policy experience to the White House than Donald J. Trump. The real estate developer from Queens promised to bring his brash, zero-sum swagger to bear to cut through America's most complex national security issues, and he did. If the cost of his "America First" agenda was bulldozing the edifice of foreign alliances that had been carefully tended by every president from Truman to Obama, then so be it. It was clear from the first that Trump's inclinations were radically more blunt force than his predecessors'. When briefed by the Pentagon on Iran and the Strait of Hormuz, he exclaimed, "The next time Iran sends its boats into the Strait: blow them out of the water! Let's get Mad Dog on this." When told that the capital of South Korea, Seoul, was so close to the North Korean border that millions of people would likely die in the first hours of any all-out war, Trump had a bold response, "They have to move." The officials in the Oval Office weren't sure if he was joking. He raised his voice. "They have to move!" Very quickly, it became clear to a number of people at the highest levels of government that their gravest mission was to protect America from Donald Trump. Trump and His Generals is Peter Bergen's riveting account of what happened when the unstoppable force of President Trump met the immovable object of America's national security establishment--the CIA, the State Department, and, above all, the Pentagon. If there is a real "deep state" in DC, it is not the FBI so much as the national security community, with its deep-rooted culture and hierarchy. The men Trump selected for his key national security positions, Jim Mattis, John Kelly, and H. R. McMaster, were products of that culture: Trump wanted generals, and he got them. Three years later, they would be gone, and the guardrails were off. From Iraq and Afghanistan to Syria and Iran, from Russia and China to North Korea and Islamist terrorism, Trump and His Generals is a brilliant reckoning with an American ship of state navigating a roiling sea of threats without a well-functioning rudder. Lucid and gripping, it brings urgently needed clarity to issues that affect the fate of us all. But clarity, unfortunately, is not the same thing as reassurance.

From Skedaddle to Selfie by Allan Metcalf Summary

From baby boomers with 'groovy' and 'yuppie,' to Generation X with 'whatever' and 'like,' each generation inevitably comes to use certain words that are particular to its unique time in history. Those words not only tell us a great deal about the people in those generations, but highlight their differences with other generations. In this entertaining compilation, Allan Metcalf, author of OK: The Improbable Story of America's Greatest Word, shows that each generation--those born within the same roughly 20-year time period--can be identified and characterized by its key words. Metcalf tells the story of the history and usage of these words, starting with the American Revolution and ending with the post-Millennial Homeland generation. With special attention to the differences in vocabulary among today's generations--the sometimes awkward Millennials, the grunge music of Generation X, hippies among the Boomers, and bobbysoxers among the Silents--From Skeddadle to Selfie compiles dozens of words we thought we knew, and tells the unheard stories of each and how they accompanied its generation through its time.

Millennials in Architecture by Darius Sollohub Summary

Much has been written about Millennials, but until now their growing presence in the field of architecture has not been examined in-depth. In an era of significant challenges stemming from explosive population growth, climate change, and the density of cities, Millennials in Architecture embraces the digitally savvy disruptors who are joining the field at a crucial time, as it grapples with the best ways to respond to a changing physical world. Taking a clear-eyed look at the new generation in the context of the design professions, Darius Sollohub begins by situating Millennials in a line of generations stretching back to early Modernism, exploring how each generation negotiates the ones before and after. He then considers the present moment, closely evaluating the significance of Millennial behaviors and characteristics (from civic-mindedness to collaboration, and time management in a 24/7 culture), all underpinned by fluency in the digital world. The book concludes with an assessment of the profound changes and opportunities that Millennial disruption will bring to education, licensure, and firm management. Encouraging new alliances, Millennials in Architecture is an essential resource for the architectural community and its stakeholders.

Baby Boomers and Generational Conflict by Jennie Bristow Summary

The dominant cultural script is that the Baby Boomers have 'had it all', thereby depriving younger generations of the opportunity to create a life for themselves. Bristow provides a critical account of this discourse by locating the problematisation of the Baby Boomers within a wider ambivalence about the legacy of the Sixties.

La guerre de Sécession by John KEEGAN Summary

Le récit et l'analyse magistrale de la première guerre moderne, par le plus grand historien de la guerre de notre temps. La guerre de Sécession (1861-1865), la plus coûteuse en vies humaines et en pertes matérielles de toute l'histoire des États-Unis, marqua le passage de l'ère napoléonienne du combat à la " guerre totale ". Pour raconter ce conflit sans précédent, il fallait un historien d'envergure internationale. Dans la lignée de ses synthèses renommées sur les deux guerres mondiales, John Keegan retrace les grandes batailles (Bull Run, Gettysburg) et le duel des généraux (Lee contre Grant) tout en donnant une large part aux enjeux stratégiques, à l'analyse psychologique et à certains aspects trop souvent négligés comme l'approvisionnement, la géographie militaire ou le rôle des Noirs dans le conflit. Ce grand livre, déjà considéré comme un classique, permet ainsi de comprendre comment la déchirure de deux peuples fonda une nation.

Surveille tes arrières ! by Donald Westlake Summary

Arnie Albright est un homme neuf. Avant, il n'était qu'un receleur au caractère impossible et au physique, disons ingrat. Un personnage tellement détestable que ses proches l'ont envoyé en cure au Club Med dans les Caraïbes. Arnie y rencontre un dénommé Preston Fareweather. Ce dernier s'est exilé sous les tropiques pour fuir quatre ex-épouses. Il faut dire que Preston est très riche. Il possède un duplex sur la Cinquième Avenue, à l'intérieur duquel se trouve une superbe collection d'objets d'art. Exactement le genre de choses qu'Arnie adore. Voilà précisément pourquoi Arnie a besoin des services de John Dortmunder. En l'absence de Preston - coincé sur son île -, ce sera un jeu d'enfant de cambrioler l'appartement. Mais, pour Dortmunder et sa bande, les jeux d'enfant se révèlent toujours beaucoup plus compliqués que prévu. D'autant plus que John, Andy et les autres ont des soucis : leur antre favori, le fameux O.J. Bar & Grill, est tombé entre les mains de la pègre, la vraie !

L'Animal social by David BROOKS Summary

Toute vie est un roman - mais quels sont les ressorts intimes de l'intrigue ? Selon David Brooks, trente ans de recherches scientifiques éclairent la question d'un jour nouveau : nous ne sommes ni des êtres rationnels, ni les jouets d'un inconscient de type freudien. Nous sommes avant tout des animaux sociaux, et cette réalité, inscrite au plus profond de nos êtres, dans nos cerveaux, explique notre façon d'évoluer dans l'existence. La science a enfin ouvert la boîte noire de notre esprit. Ses passionnantes découvertes, jusqu'ici confinées dans le cadre des publications savantes, bouleversent le champ de notre compréhension. Vulgarisateur de talent, David Brooks a su en tirer la trame d'une fiction : il nous livre, clés à l'appui, le récit de la vie de deux personnages, Erica et Harold, aussi différents qu'on peut l'être, qui finiront pourtant par bâtir ensemble leur vie et leur réussite. En décryptant leurs émotions, leurs intuitions, leurs désirs enfouis, ces lieux intimes où se forgent le caractère et la destinée, il brosse pour nous l'étonnant tableau de notre propre humanité.

Sociologie des générations by Claudine Attias-Donfut Summary

Qu'est-ce qu'une génération ? Comment se forme-t-elle ? A-t-elle un esprit ? Une mémoire collective ? Et que désigne-t-on en parlant de la génération de 68 ou de la bof génération ? Pour répondre à ces questions, ce livre entraîne dans un parcours critique à travers l'histoire, l'anthropologie, la démographie, la psychanalyse, la sociologie ; il renouvelle la réflexion sur la succession des générations et les âges de la vie. L'auteur présente des thèses nouvelles sur les générations sexuées — produit de la libération des femmes — ou encore sur la correspondance entre la confrontation des générations et ces étapes de la vie que sont l'adolescence et la maturescence. À la recherche des processus par lesquels se constitue, sans se connaître, une génération et se marque l'empreinte du temps aux sources mêmes de la pensée, ce livre débouche sur la définition d'un espace générationnel qui conduit à une sociologie du temps.

Quinze jours dans le désert by Alexis de Tocqueville Summary

Alexis de Tocqueville entreprit à l’été 1831 ce voyage aux confins de la civilisation américaine. L’émerveillement et la crainte d’une nature encore vierge, et cette implacable urbanisation qui se met en marche vers l’ouest, lui inspirent un récit d’une contemporanéité saisissante. Entre Indiens et pionniers, forêts sauvages et rivières profondes, Quinze jours dans le désert fait revivre le mythe de la frontière.
