Friedman discusses a government system that is no longer controlled by "we, the people." Instead of Lincoln's government "of the people, by the people, and for the people," we now have a government "of the people, by the bureaucrats, for the bureaucrats," including the elected representatives who have become bureaucrats.

What are the most critical issues that the US faces now and what are the long-term big-picture issues that we have to address? This platform, non-partisan, provides a critical assessment of our national priorities and the greatest problems that have to be addressed, as well as issues for which we need a coherent strategy for the future. Based on this assessment, basic principles are addressed that can underlie economic and foreign policy, fulfill the fiscal responsibility of debt and budget, and offer a reasonable position on the nationalism-globalism dimension. Specific policies are presented for tax reform, gun reform, prison reform, federal government reform, immigration and welfare reform. It is a clarion call for dialogue about these issues where the fate of future Americans hangs in the balance.

In early 2013 same-sex marriage was legal in only ten states and the District of Columbia. That year the Supreme Court’s decision in United States v. Windsor appeared to open the door to marriage equality. In Texas, Mark Phariss and Vic Holmes, together for sixteen years and deeply in love, wondered why no one had stepped across the threshold to challenge their state’s 2005 constitutional amendment prohibiting same-sex marriage. They agreed to join a lawsuit being put together by Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLD. Two years later—after tense battles in the Federal District Court for the Western District of Texas and in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, after sitting through oral arguments at the Supreme Court of the United States in Obergefell v. Hodges—they won the right to marry deep in the heart of Texas. But the road they traveled was never easy. Accidental Activists is the deeply moving story of two men who struggled to achieve the dignity of which Justice Anthony Kennedy spoke in a series of Supreme Court decisions that recognized the “personhood,” the essential humanity of gays and lesbians. Author David Collins tells Mark and Vic’s story in the context of legal and social history and explains the complex legal issues and developments surrounding same-sex marriage in layman’s terms.

We experience the culture of globalisation every time we visit a Tandoori restaurant in Chicago, or a Pizza Hut in Hyderabad, or as we watch Bollywood films in Australia. Globalisation is a label used for a wide range of political, social and cultural phenomena, many of which are explored in this volume. The Politics and Culture of Globalisation: India and Australia brings together Indian and Australian experts in the fields of political science, international relations, philosophy, cultural theory and political economy. Its timeliness and unifying theme derive from comparisons between Indian and Australian perspectives, and analyses by Australian writers on developments in India. Indian-Australian relations are explored in several chapters.  The neo-liberal form of globalisation is a key focus of critique in this volume. Several chapters examine the search for alternative forms of governance as the nation-state undergoes profound change due to global interconnectedness.

<P>Whilst the Chinese Communist Party is one of the most powerful political institutions in the world, it is also one of the least understood, due to the party’s secrecy and tight control over the archives, the press and the Internet. Having governed the People’s Republic of China for nearly 70 years though, much interest remains into how this quintessentially Leninist party governs one-fifth of the world and runs the world’s second-largest economy. </P><br /><P>The <I>Routledge Handbook of the Chinese Communist Party </I>gives a comprehensive and multi-faceted picture of the party’s traditions and values – as well as its efforts to stay relevant in the twenty-first century. It uses a wealth of contemporary data and qualitative analysis to explore the intriguing relationship between the party on the one hand, and the government, the legal and judicial establishment and the armed forces, on the other. Tracing the influence of Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin, as well as Mao Zedong, on contemporary leaders ranging from Deng Xiaoping and Jiang Zemin to Hu Jintao and Xi Jinping, the sections cover:</P><br /><UL><br /><LI>the party’s history and traditions;</LI><br /><LI>how the party works and seeks to remain relevant;</LI><br /><LI>major policy arenas;</LI><br /><LI>the CCP in the twenty-first century.</LI></UL><br /><P>The <I>Routledge Handbook of the Chinese Communist Party </I>will be of interest to students and scholars of Chinese Politics, Asian Politics, Political Parties and International Relations.</P>

<p><b><i>China’s hidden agenda has finally been revealed.</i></b> After decades of feigning a pacifist rise by following ex paramount leader Deng Xiaoping’s strategy of “Hide our strength, bide our time,” decades during which it built up by hook or by crook a powerful economy and military, China has finally shown its true colors, that of being a <b><i>rising militaristic power</i></b> that follows Mao Zedong’s philosophy of “Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.”</p><p>China is now aggressively stamping its hegemony over Asia and expanding its domination around the world. The Chinese are popping up all over the world and bulldozing their way around. China is reshaping the world in its own image, one of absolute totalitarianism, egregious abuse of human rights, rampant corruption, and environmental havoc.</p><p>And China is on the verge of becoming unstoppable. The window of opportunity for the US to rein in and tame China is closing fast. <b><i>After 2020, China will be undefeatable.</i></b></p><p>The China menace is hauntingly real.</p>
