The Rise of the Gunbelt: The Military Remapping of Industrial America

Descriere: Since World War II, America's economic landscape has undergone a profound transformation. The effects of this change can be seen in the decline of the traditional industrial heartland and the emergence of new high tech industrial complexes in California, Texas, Boston, and Florida. The Rise of the Gunbelt demonstrates that this economic restructuring is a direct result of the rise of the military industrial complex (MIC) and a wholly new industry based on defense spending and Pentagon contacts. Chronicling the dramatic growth of this vast complex, the authors analyze the roles played by the shift from land and sea warfare to aerial combat in World War II, the Cold War, the birth of aerospace and the consequent radical transformation of the airplane industry, and labor and major defense corporations such as Boeing, Lockheed, and McDonnell Douglas. Exploring the reasons for the shifts in defense spending--including the role of lobbyists and the Department of Defense in awarding contracts--and the effects on regional and national economic development, this comprehensive study reveals the complexities of the MIC.

Lo Que VI: Experiencias de un Periodista

Pret: 89,00 RON

Jorge del Rayo Ramos

Lo Que VI: Experiencias de un Periodista Alrededor del Mundo

Este libro cuenta lo que el prestigioso periodista Jorge Ramos no ha podido decir por television. Como el mismo dice, muchas veces las cosas mas interesantes al cubrir una noticia ocurren detras de las camaras y estos relatos de viajes son el mejor ejemplo. Como reportero conductor titular del Noticiero Univision y escritor de varios libros, Ramos ha recorrido el mundo en busca de la noticia y ha entrevistado a algunos de los personajes mas poderosos del mundo. Todas esas vivencias estan aqui. Ademas, esta version actualizada del libro incluye sus experiencias, nunca antes contadas, en la guerra de Irak. Algunos relatos son solo ojeadas, hasta pestanazos, de sus viajes. En otros, se adentra a lo mas profundo y doloroso de un pais. Todos estan cargados de emocion y han marcado al periodista de una forma muy personal. Ver con los ojos bien abiertos y luego contar lo que viste, dice Ramos, es la funcion fundamental de un periodista. Solo ese ejercicio basico le permite despues decir: "Yo lo vi, nadie me lo conto."

Cheney: The Untold Story of the Most Powerful and Controversial Vice President in American History

During a forty-year career in politics, Vice President Dick Cheney has been involved in some of the most consequential decisions in recent American history. He was one of a few select advisers in the room when President Gerald Ford decided to declare an end to the Vietnam War. Nearly thirty years later, from the presidential bunker below the White House in the moments immediately following the attacks of September 11, 2001, he helped shape the response: America's global war on terror. Yet for all of his influence, the world knows very little about Dick Cheney. The most powerful vice president in U.S. history has also been the most secretive and guarded of all public officials. "Am I the evil genius in the corner that nobody ever sees come out of his hole?" Cheney asked rhetorically in 2004. "It's a nice way to operate, actually."Now, in Cheney: The Untold Story of America's Most Powerful and Controversial Vice President, New York Times bestselling author and Weekly Standard senior writer Stephen F. Hayes offers readers a groundbreaking view into the world of this most enigmatic man. Having had exclusive access to Cheney himself, Hayes draws upon hundreds of interviews with the vice ...
