The Services Shift Book Summary : Everyone's familiar with manufacturing offshoring by now. But a different phenomenon will soon drive even more powerful changes: the globalization of services. Until now, it's been virtually impossible to get a clear picture of what's going on, where, and why. Where are the jobs going? Which companies benefit -- or could benefit? How, exactly, does services offshoring work? Who makes a good partner? What are the public policy implications? The Services Shift answers all these questions and more, offering powerful insights for managers, policymakers, and citizens alike. Two leading researchers reveal how services offshoring is working in both industries and individual companies, and show how to define and implement realistic services sourcing goals. You'll review the types of players involved in services offshoring, and understand its geographical centers, from China and India to Hungary, Russia, Morocco, Brazil, South Africa, and Mauritius. Drawing on detailed interviews with dozens of participants, the authors review the management skillsets associated with successful services offshoring. Next, they review policy initiatives in both developing and developed countries, and assess U.S. policy initiatives aimed at restricting offshoring. Next, they review policy initiatives in both developing and developed countries, and assess U.S. policy initiatives aimed at restricting offshoring. Finally, the authors preview emerging trends in services globalization.

Seizing Power Book Summary : While coups drive a majority of regime changes and are responsible for the overthrow of many democratic governments, there has been very little empirical work on the subject. Seizing Power develops a new theory of coup dynamics and outcomes, drawing on 300 hours of interviews with coup participants and an original dataset of 471 coup attempts worldwide from 1950 to 2000. Naunihal Singh delivers a concise and empirical evaluation, arguing that understanding the dynamics of military factions is essential to predicting the success or failure of coups. Singh draws on an aspect of game theory known as a coordination game to explain coup dynamics. He finds a strong correlation between successful coups and the ability of military actors to project control and the inevitability of success. Examining Ghana’s multiple coups and the 1991 coup attempt in the USSR, Singh shows how military actors project an image of impending victory that is often more powerful than the reality on the ground. In his close analysis of ten coups in Ghana from 1967 to 1981, Singh identifies three distinct points of coup origination: coups from top military officers, coups from the middle ranks, and mutinous coups from low-level soldiers. -- Leonardo R. Arriola, University of California, Berkeley

The Mountain of Light Book Summary : From the internationally bestselling author of The Twentieth Wife, a novel based on the tumultuous history of a legendary 186-carat diamond—originating in India—and the men and women who possessed it. As empires rose and fell and mighty kings jostled for power, its glittering radiance never dimmed. It is the “Mountain of Light”—the Kohinoor diamond—and its facets reflect a sweeping story of love, adventure, conquest, and betrayal. Its origins are the stuff of myth, but for centuries this spectacular gem changes hands from one ruler to another in India, Persia, and Afghanistan. In 1850, the ancient stone is sent halfway around the world where it will play a pivotal role in the intertwined destinies of a boy-king of India and a young queen of England—a queen who claims the Mountain of Light and India itself for her own burgeoning empire, the most brilliant jewels in her imperial crown. The Mountain of Light is a magnificent story of loss and recovery, sweeping change and enduring truth, wrapped around the glowing heart of one of the world’s most famous diamonds.

The Click Moment Book Summary : In the story of every great company and career, there is one defining moment when luck and skill collide. This book is about making that moment happen. According to Frans Johansson’s research, successful people and organizations show a common theme. A lucky moment occurs and they take advantage of it to change their fate. Consider how Diane von Furstenberg saw Julie Nixon Eisenhower on TV wearing a matching skirt and top, and created the timeless, elegant wrap-dress. That was a “click moment” of unexpected opportunity. Johansson uses stories from throughout history to illustrate the specific actions we can take to create more click moments, place lots of high-potential bets, open ourselves up to chance encounters, and harness the complex forces of success that follow.
