Japan Runs Wild, 1942-1943

Japan Runs Wild, 1942-1943

Author: Peter Harmsen Narrator: Walter Dixon Release Date: 01/09/2021

In early 1942, the Imperial Japanese Army and Navy were advancing on all fronts, humiliating Allied forces throughout the Pacific. In a matter of months, Japan had conquered an area larger than Hitler's empire at its apex. Hawaiians and Australians feared a future under Hirohito. The fate of half of mankind was hanging in the balance. But by the end of 1943, the tables had turned entirely. The American-led military machine had kicked into gear, and the Japanese were fighting a defensive battle along a frontline that crossed thousands of miles of land and sea. In Japan Runs Wild, 1942-1943, historian Peter Harmsen details the astonishing transformation that took place in that period, setting the Allies on a path to ultimate victory over Japan. The second installment of Peter Harmsen's three-part history, Japan Runs Wild, 1942-1943 continues his comprehensive chronicle of the Pacific Theater during the Second World War. Giving due emphasis to the Japanese-American struggle, Harmsen also sheds light on the other peoples involved, including the British, Australians, Soviets, Filipinos, Indians, and Koreans. Above all, the central importance of China is highlighted in a way that no previous general history of the war against Japan has achieved.

Asian Armageddon, 1944-45

Asian Armageddon, 1944-45

Author: Peter Harmsen Narrator: Walter Dixon Release Date: 01/09/2021

The last installment of the War in the Far East trilogy, Asian Armageddon 1944-1945, continues and completes the narrative of the first two volumes, describing how a US-led coalition of nations battled Japan into submission through a series of cataclysmic encounters. Leyte Gulf, the biggest naval battle ever, was testimony to the paramount importance of controlling the ocean, as was the fact that the US Navy carried out the only successful submarine campaign in history, reducing Japan's military and merchant navies to shadows of the former selves. Meanwhile, fighting continued in disparate geographic conditions on land, with the chaos of Imphal, the inferno of Manila, and the carnage of Iwo Jima forming some of the milestones on the bloody road to peace, sealed in Tokyo Bay in September 1945. It was a world where the stage was set for the Cold War and for international rivalries that last to this day, and a new constellation of powers emerged. War in the Far East is a trilogy of books comprising a general history of World War II in the Asia Pacific. Unlike other histories on the conflict it goes into its deep origins, beginning long before Pearl Harbor, and encompasses a far wider group of actors to produce the most complete account yet written on the subject and the first truly international treatment of this epic conflict.

Storm Clouds over the Pacific, 1931-1941

Storm Clouds over the Pacific, 1931-1941

Author: Peter Harmsen Narrator: Walter Dixon Release Date: 01/08/2021

War in the Far East is a trilogy of books offering the most complete narrative yet written about the Pacific Theater of World War II, and the first truly international treatment of the epic conflict. Historian Peter Harmsen weaves together a complex and revealing narrative, including facets of the war that are often overlooked in historic narratives. He explores the war in subarctic conditions on the Aleutians; details the mass starvations in China, Indochina, and India; and offers a range of perspectives on the war experience, from the Oval Office to the blistering sands of Peleliu. Storm Clouds Over the Pacific begins the story long before Pearl Harbor, showing how the war can only be understood if ancient hatreds and long-standing geopolitics are taken into account. Harmsen demonstrates how Japan and China's ancient enmity led to increased tensions in the 1930s, which, in turn, exploded into conflict in 1937. The battles of Shanghai and Nanjing were followed by the Battle of Taierzhuang in 1938, China's only major victory. A war of attrition continued up to 1941, the year when Japan made the momentous decision to pursue all-out war. The infamous attack on Pearl Harbor catapulted the United States into the war, as the Japanese also overran British and Dutch territories throughout the western Pacific.

The Phoenix Encounter Method: Lead Like Your Business Is on Fire!

The Phoenix Encounter Method: Lead Like Your Business Is on Fire!

Author: Ian C. Woodward, Ram Charan, Sameer Hasija, V. 'paddy' Padmanabhan Narrator: Walter Dixon Release Date: 01/06/2021

The business landscape is littered with the wreckage of companies that crashed and burned when an apocalypse came-in the shape of new competitive technologies, upstart entrants, demographic shifts, and new world orders. Who can feel safe in firestorm change? The authors of The Phoenix Encounter Method don't advise safety. In fact, their method of leadership thinking requires you to imagine burning your business to the ground-throwing yourself into a firestorm change-and turning the upheaval to your organization's advantage. It can then rise, phoenix-like, from the ashes, stronger and more powerful than ever. Written with a sense of urgency and purposefully radical provocation, The Phoenix Encounter Method represents the forward thinking of legendary business guru Ram Charan and professors from the senior global leadership program of INSEAD, one of the world's top graduate business schools. The resulting methodology, based on analysis of thousands of articles, studies, reports, and academic and business practice, was field tested in real-life Phoenix Encounters conducted with more than fifteen hundred senior executives-from startups and family businesses to legacy companies-representing a broad range of industry and sectors in both developed and developing economies.

Rebellion, Rascals, and Revenue: Tax Follies and Wisdom through the Ages

Rebellion, Rascals, and Revenue: Tax Follies and Wisdom through the Ages

Author: Joel Slemrod, Michael Keen Narrator: Walter Dixon Release Date: 01/05/2021

Governments have always struggled to tax in ways that are effective and tolerably fair. Sometimes they fail grotesquely, as when, in 1898, the British ignited a rebellion in Sierra Leone by imposing a tax on huts-and, in repressing it, ended up burning the very huts they intended to tax. Sometimes they succeed astonishingly, as when, in eighteenth-century Britain, a cut in the tax on tea massively increased revenue. In this entertaining book, two leading authorities on taxation, Michael Keen and Joel Slemrod, provide a fascinating and informative tour through these and many other episodes in tax history, both preposterous and dramatic-from the plundering described by Herodotus and an Incan tax payable in lice to the (misremembered) Boston Tea Party and the scandals of the Panama Papers. Along the way, readers meet a colorful cast of tax rascals, and even a few tax heroes. While it is hard to fathom the inspiration behind such taxes as one on ships that tended to make them sink, Keen and Slemrod show that yesterday's tax systems have more in common with ours than we may think. Georgian England's window tax now seems quaint, but was an ingenious way of judging wealth unobtrusively. And Tsar Peter the Great's tax on beards aimed to induce the nobility to shave, much like today's carbon taxes aim to slow global warming.

Philosophy of Physics: A Very Short Introduction

Philosophy of Physics: A Very Short Introduction

Author: David Wallace Narrator: Walter Dixon Release Date: 01/04/2021

Philosophy of physics is concerned with the deepest theories of modern physics-notably quantum theory, our theories of space, time and symmetry, and thermal physics-and their strange, even bizarre conceptual implications. A deeper understanding of these theories helps both physics, through pointing the way to new theories and new applications, and philosophy, through seeing how our worldview has to change in the light of what we learn from physics. This Very Short Introduction explores the core topics in philosophy of physics through three key themes. The first-the nature of space, time, and motion-begins by considering the philosophical puzzles that led Isaac Newton to propose the existence of absolute space, and then discusses how those puzzles change-but do not disappear-in the context of the revolutions in our understanding of space and time that came first from special, and then from general, relativity. The second-the emergence of irreversible behavior in statistical mechanics-considers how the microscopic laws of physics can be compatible with the melting of ice, the cooling of coffee, the passing of youth, and all the other ways in which the large-scale world distinguishes past from future. The last section discusses quantum theory-the foundation of most of modern physics, yet mysterious to this day.

Author: James Rickards Narrator: Walter Dixon Release Date: 01/03/2021

The picture that emerges is dark yet comprehensive and satisfying' Bloomberg Businessweek 'Let's hope he's wrong' Financial Times In his latest book, financial expert, investment advisor and New York Times bestselling author James Rickards shows how currency wars are one of the most destructive and feared outcomes in international economics.

At worst, they degenerate into sequential bouts of inflation, recession, retaliation and sometimes actual violence. From clandestine gold purchases by China to the hidden agendas of sovereign wealth funds, Rickards shows how currency wars pose the greatest threat to international security and even the very real danger of the collapse of the financial system itself.
