The New York Times Bestseller If you think you know where the world is headed, think again Mexico making a bid for global supremacy? Poland becoming America’s closest ally? World War III taking place in space? It might sound fantastic but all these things can happen. In The Next 100 Years, George Friedman, author of the huge bestseller America’s Secret War offers a lucid, highly readable forecast of the changes we can expect around the world during the 21st century. He predicts where and why future wars will erupt, and how they will be fought; which nations will gain and lose economic and political power; and how new technologies and cultural trends will alter the way we live in the new century.
The Next 100 - with this in mind, the BMW Group marks its 100th birthday by focusing its attention on the future. What will mobility be like tomorrow? What role will companies play in society? How and where will people live? What effects will digitisation and globalisation have on the world we live in? How will it be possible to maintain the company's position as the driving force behind progress and innovation? In The Next 100 the BMW Group does not limit its coverage to its own plans and scenarios but invites experts from a variety of social spheres - scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, journalists and artists - to join the BMW Group in reflecting on and discussing the future. However, the publication also pays due attention to the history of the company, which has been consistently characterized by its focus on the future. The book offers fascinating insights into the fundamental thought processes behind the vehicles and takes a detailed look at their genesis.

In the past century there has been awareness of the importance of a global public health perspective in understanding the etiology, course and treatment of mental disorders. However, just recently there has been a focus on population science and with it an evidence-based call to improving public mental health in communities. Mental Health in Public Health synthesizes important topics in public health psychiatry that were discussed at the American Psychopathological Association (APPA) meeting in 2010. The book, like the APPA meeting, aims to bring advanced knowledge of the social and environmental risk factors for psychiatric disorders, as well as ideas for preventing them. Chapters are written by experts from around the world and include such public health concerns as Veteran's mental health, mental health disparities among minorities, causes of addictions, and mortality of these disorders.

Map-making is an ancient impulse. From the moment homo sapiens learnt to communicate we have used them to make sense of our surroundings. But as Albert Einstein once said, ‘you can’t use old maps to explore a new world.’ And now, when the world is changing faster than ever before, our old maps are no longer fit for purpose. Welcome to Terra Incognita. Based on decades of research, and combining mesmerising, state-of-the-art satellite maps with enlightening and passionately argued analysis, authors Ian Goldin and Robert Muggah chart humanity’s impact on the planet, and the ways in which we can make a real impact to save it, and to thrive as a species. Learn about: fires in the arctic; the impact of sea level rise on cities around the world; the truth about immigration - and why fears in the West are a myth; the counter-intuitive future of population rise; the miracles of health and education that are waiting around the corner, and the reality about inequality, and how we end it. The book traces the paths of peoples, cities, wars, climates and technologies, all on a global scale. Full of facts that will confound you, inform you, and ultimately empower you, Terra Incognita guides readers to a new place of understanding, rather than to a physical location. The book will be lavishly produced in full colour.

Fundamentals of Sustainable Business begins by briefly describing the legacy of environmental and social problems that have arisen as a result of conventional business practices, and then details the coalescence of a broad-based contemporary movement that has been called "The Next Industrial Revolution." Combining the long-term interests of business, community, and the natural world, the resulting sustainable business reformation is unlike any previous human endeavor. The book deftly synthesizes a diverse collection of movement components, including some original concepts, and provides a single comprehensive and definitive source for understanding the emerging and complex phenomenon of sustainable business. This work challenges many long-held conventional assumptions involving the relationship of the natural world and humankind as well as our fundamental approaches to industrial production. It critiques the various emerging brands of sustainable business activities, and provides the reader with a clear understanding of the essential design components of a movement that provides a conceptual infrastructure for a prosperous and healthy world for all generations of all species for all time.
