Summary

As the digital divide between urban and rural regions grows, not everyone everywhere benefits from the opportunities of digital transformation. This year's Reinhard Mohn Prize "Smart Country – Connected. Intelligent. Digital." highlights digital solutions that strengthen social inclusion and the quality of life across regions and socioeconomic groups. The results of this year's international search for good practices in the areas of health and care, mobility and logistics, public administration, and learning and information policy are featured in this publication. Also featured are the lessons learned from pioneering digital nations such as Austria, Estonia, Israel and Sweden which have application for Germany as it develops its own national digital strategy, builds its network infrastructure, deepens digital competencies and advances the intelligent application of technology.

    “Lucid and original analysis” of globalization and the United State’s role in a new world order. “Scholarly, yet witty and concise” (Dr. Irene Finel-Honigman, adjunct professor of international and public affairs, Columbia University).   Among the many drastic changes in the world over the last thirty years, the most important one—and the key to America’s future—is globalization. In The Joint Ventured Nation, author Edward Goldberg argues that American foreign policy is too focused on a world that no longer exists, one in which political power is measured by military strength or fervent ideology. He details how our fate is now intertwined with our economic partners, and looks at how we should deal with states such as Russia and the various Middle Eastern nations that refuse to join the globalized world. Most importantly, he shows how America can remain first among equals in a joint ventured world.   “This book is a must read for anyone interested in 21st-century U.S. foreign policy, the emergent global economy, and the political challenges we face both at home and abroad.” —William M. LeoGrande, Professor of Government and former Dean of the American University School of Public Affairs   “I found the historical context from which Edward Goldberg developed his argument for joint ventures among nations and economies in a post-Westphalian world to be fascinating and compelling.” —Wayne Porter, CAPT, USN (ret.) and co-author of A National Strategic Narrative   “Solid discussions of the changing nature of sovereignty, the power of the Federal Reserve, and the shifting geopolitical views of nations over the past decades . . . Some provocative ideas for policymakers.” —Kirkus Reviews   “Pragmatic and nonpartisan in scope.” —Library Journal

    America's Great Storm - Leading...

    When Hurricane Katrina hit Mississippi on August 29, 2005, it unleashed the costliest natural disaster in American history, and the third deadliest. Haley Barbour had been Mississippi's governor for only twenty months when he assumed responsibility for guiding his pummeled, stricken state's recovery and rebuilding efforts. America's Great Storm is not only a personal memoir of his role in that recovery, but also a sifting of the many lessons he learned about leadership in a time of massive crisis. 
    For the book, the authors interviewed more than forty-five key people involved in helping Mississippi recover, including local, state, and federal officials as well as private citizens who played pivotal roles in the weeks and months following Katrina's landfall. In addition to covering in detail the events of September and October 2005, chapters focus on the special legislative session that allowed casinos to build on shore; the role of the recovery commission chaired by Jim Barksdale; a behind-the-scenes description of working with Congress to pass an unprecedented, multi-billion-dollar emergency disaster assistance appropriation; and the enormous roles played by volunteers in rebuilding the entire housing, transportation, and education infrastructure of South Mississippi and the Gulf Coast. 
    A final chapter analyzes the leadership skills and strategies Barbour employed on behalf of the people of his state, observations that will be valuable to anyone tasked with managing in a crisis.

    “A thrilling, challenging and educational book . . . examines the roles of spies such a Edith Cavell, Mata Hari, Violette Szabo and Noor Inayat Khan” (Pennant Magazine).   Women spies have rarely received the recognition they deserve. They have often been trivialized and, in cinema and popular fiction, stereotyped as vamps or dupes. The reality is very different. As spies, women have played a critical role during wartime, receiving and passing on vital information, frequently at considerable risk. Often able to blend into their background more easily than their male counterparts, women have worked as couriers, transmitters, and with resistance fighters, their achievements often unknown. Many have died.   Ann Kramer describes the role of women spies during wartime, with particular reference to the two world wars. She looks at why some women chose to become spies, their motives, and backgrounds. She looks at the experience of women spies during wartime, what training they received, and what skills they needed. She examines the reality of life for a woman spy, operating behind enemy lines, and explores and explodes the myths about women spies that continue until the present day. The focus is mainly on Britain but also takes an international view as appropriate.   “Tells the often surprising stories of some of the women who chose to become spies and to serve their country . . . An excellent work.” —The Great War Magazine
