Summary

The quadrology´s four books covers the entire dramatic global strategic development since the Kosovo war in 1999. Russia and China's cooperation in the BRICS, SCO, the Ukraine crisis in 2014, Syria, the dramatic development in the South China Sea, the US presidential elections in 2016 and 2020, and its implications for the US global leadership.  Dialogues appear in parts 1 to 2 between the author and the American and Swedish highly ranked retired military and a Russian geostrategist in Vietnam in 2013. The military development is analyzed in detail. Finally, a summary analysis of more than fifty pages follows, which includes the very latest dramatic development around the US epic chaos-influenced retreat from Afghanistan and the development of events from November 2021 until May 9, 2022. Following the attack on Ukraine on February 24, 2022, Russia is on the front lines against the Anglo-Saxon Western world. Yet, except for French Guiana in Latin America, the rest of the world refuses to follow the West's sanctions policy against Russia. In the near future, the struggle between Russia and the Anglo-American Western world will have the character of a positional political and economic war, and whoever first gives up will lose.  If Russia falls, Eurasia's authoritarian superpowers will fall, and the Anglo-American Western world will take over globally. But if the Anglo-American Western world falls, Eurasia's authoritarian superpowers, Russia and China, will have crushing world domination in control of the World Island, Eurasia, and Africa.

    A foreign policy expert “presents a thoughtful, comprehensive case” for the War on Terror—a “historically powerful support of Mr. Bush and his doctrine” (Washington Times). 
     
    The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, shattered the tranquil and prosperous optimism that had blossomed in the United States during the 1990s. President George W. Bush responded with a preemptive Global War on Terror. This controversial strategy led the nation into protracted conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan and ignited passionate debate about America’s role in the world. 
     
    In Defense of the Bush Doctrine offers a vigorous argument for the principles of moral democratic realism that inspired the Bush administration's policy. Conservative columnist Robert G. Kaufman argues that the purpose of American foreign policy is to ensure the integrity and vitality of a free society and that America’s grand strategy must be guided by the cardinal virtue of prudence. 
     
    Kaufman provides a broad historical context for America’s post-9/11 foreign policy, connecting the Bush Doctrine and other issues, such as how the United States should deal with China, to the deeper tradition of American diplomacy. Drawing from positive lessons as well as cautionary tales from the past, Kaufman concludes that moral democratic realism offers the most prudent framework for expanding the democratic zone of peace and minimizing threats to the United States.

    War corrupts. Endless war corrupts absolutely. 
     
    Ever since 9/11 America has fought an endless war on terror, seeking enemies everywhere and never promising peace. In Pay Any Price, James Risen reveals an extraordinary litany of the hidden costs of that war: from squandered and stolen dollars, to outrageous abuses of power, to wars on normalcy, decency, and truth. In the name of fighting terrorism, our government has done things every bit as shameful as its historic wartime abuses-and until this audiobook, it has worked very hard to cover them up. 
     
    Lincoln suspended habeas corpus. FDR authorized the internment of thousands of Japanese Americans. Presidents Bush and Obama now must face their own reckoning. Power corrupts, but it is endless war that corrupts absolutely.

    Niccolò Machiavelli wrote The Prince in 1513. He was the Italian diplomat and political theorist. This treatise is Machiavelli’s advice to the current ruler of Florence on how to stay in power; the book is dedicated to Lorenzo de’ Medici. The treatise makes a clear break from the Western tradition of political philosophy that preceded him. Before Machiavelli, politics was strictly bonded with ethics and politics being defined as the morality of individuals in social groups or organized communities. He tries to divorce politics from ethics and make a framework for the study of politics.He has often been called the father of modern political philosophy or political science. Most philosophers before him had defined a good leader as humble, moral and honest. But Machiavelli denied that notion. He believed cruelty can be better than kindness. He said: “It is better to be feared than loved, if you cannot have both.”This version of the book is translated by Mahmood Mahmood to Persian (Farsi) and narrated by Saeid Eslam Zadeh. The Persian version of The Prince’s audiobook is published by Maktub worldwide.

    A fascinating analysis of two of the most important figures in 1960s American politics, written during their battle for the GOP presidential nomination.   Richard Milhous Nixon was one of the most controversial politicians in America’s history: a California congressman, senator, vice president, and president who was forced to resign his position as US Chief Executive because of his role in the scandalous Watergate affair. Nelson Rockefeller was the scion of a phenomenally wealthy American family and longtime governor of New York State. In 1960 they were the leading contenders to win the Republican Party’s nomination for president of the United States, one of whom would face the Democratic challenger, Senator John F. Kennedy, in November’s general election.   Written by acclaimed journalist Stewart Alsop during the heat of the political race to the Republican Convention, Nixon & Rockefeller provides a revealing, often surprising dual portrait of two giants of twentieth-century American politics. Alsop, an acknowledged Washington, DC, insider and one of the most esteemed political analysts of his era, explores the backgrounds, mindsets, and distinct personalities, as well as the strengths and failings of these two candidates vying for the highest office in the country.   The author’s intelligent and insightful views on the nature of a Nixon presidency versus a Rockefeller presidency make for fascinating reading in light of the political outcome that ultimately was and one that might have been.

    Can real news survive in an era of social media and spin? An updated edition of the “smart, provocative introduction to media and American politics.”—Paul Freedman, author of Campaign Advertising and American Democracy   For over thirty years, News: The Politics of Illusion has not simply reflected the political communication field—it has played a major role in shaping it. Today, the familiar news organizations of the legacy press are operating in a fragmenting and expanding mediaverse as online competitors challenge the very definition of news itself. We’re inundated with opinions, gossip, clickbait, false equivalencies, targeting, and other challenges—while at the same time, the rise of serious investigative organizations such as ProPublica presents yet a different challenge to legacy journalism.   Lance Bennett’s thoroughly revised tenth edition offers an up-to-date guide to understanding how and why the media and news landscapes are being transformed. It explains the mix of old and new, and points to possible outcomes. Where areas of change are clearly established, key concepts from earlier editions have been revised. There are new case studies, updates on old favorites, and insightful analyses of how novel kinds of information and engagement are affecting our politics. As always, News presents fresh evidence and arguments that invite new ways of thinking about the political information system and its place in democracy.   “Bennett argues that the American political information system—with news at its center—is broken, with serious consequences for democracy. Bennett lays out his case and invites readers to make up their own minds.”—Paul Freedman, University of Virginia

    The Responsive Chord - How Media...

    The classic work on how media affects us by the man who helped create the most famous political ad in television history. 
     
    Tony Schwartz drew on his unparalleled experience in the communications industry to give us The Responsive Chord, an engaging read and one of the seminal books on media. Famed for his “Daisy” campaign ad and a pioneering anti-tobacco PSA, Schwartz came to understand that most advertisers, politicians, and educators?in fact, almost all of us?use a model of communication long outmoded by the coming of electronic media: a model which has made us blind to many of the inner workings of modern communication. 
     
    In The Responsive Chord, he puts forth the resonance principle—that the meaning of an ad (or any other piece of communication) is not present in the ad itself but rather in how the ad relates to the vast array of knowledge and associations already held in the mind of the viewer, both factual and emotional. Thus, audience members do not merely digest a message; they are an essential force in creating it. Schwartz guides us through the many fascinating consequences. The implications for anyone looking to impart a message or influence decisions are enormous. 
     
    With so many people now getting their information through social media and “fake news” sites, it is crucial that we understand the strong forces by which these outlets act upon us and, yes, manipulate our ideas and actions. The Responsive Chord reveals these forces in a compelling, revealing read. 
     
    “I read The Responsive Chord as a freshman in college and it affected everything I've ever made since. Its message is practical and deep. I'd recommend it to anyone.”?Ira Glass, creator and host of NPR's This American Life 
     
    “Maybe reading this book will prepare us to think more critically about the way social media is used on, and against, us today.”?Douglas Rushkoff, author, Program or Be Programmed
