                            How the World Stopped   
                            Another Great Depression

 

 


In The System Worked, renowned international relations expert Daniel Drezner contends that despite the massive scale and reverberations of the Great Recession, the global economy has bounced back remarkably well. Bucking conventional wisdom, Drezner rehabilitates the image of the much-maligned global economic governance institutions and demolishes some of the most dangerous myths about the financial crisis. While the global economy is still fragile, Drezner argues that these institutions survived the "stress test," and may have become even more resilient and valuable in the process.

 

May 15                 Nuclear Nightmares

 

 

 


There is a high risk that someone will use, by accident or design, one or more of the 17,000 nuclear weapons in the world today, yet hope remains: more countries have abandoned nuclear weapon programs than have developed them, and global arsenals are just one-quarter of what they were during the Cold War. Can these trends continue, or are we on the brink of a new arms race -- or worse, nuclear war? Author Joseph Cirincione, President of Ploughshares Fund, operates at the center of debates on nuclear terrorism, new nuclear nations, and the risks of existing arsenals.
