            Like the never-ending War on Terror, the drugs war is a multi-billion-dollar industry that won't go down without a fight. Pills, Powder, and Smoke explains why. The War on Drugs has been official American policy since the 1970s, with the UK, Europe, and much of the world followin...g suit. It is at best a failed policy, according to bestselling author Antony Loewenstein. Its direct results have included mass incarceration in the US, extreme violence in different parts of the world, the backing of dictatorships, and surging drug addiction globally. And now the Trump administration is unleashing diplomatic and military forces against any softening of the conflict. Pills, Powder, and Smoke investigates the individuals, officials, activists, and traffickers caught up in this deadly war. Travelling through the UK, the US, Australia, Honduras, the Philippines, and Guinea-Bissau, Loewenstein uncovers the secrets of the drug war, why it's so hard to end, and who is really profiting from it. Loewenstein reports on the frontlines across the globe, from the streets of London's King's Cross to remote African villages. He reveals how the War on Drugs has become the most deadly war in modern times. Designed and inspired by Washington, its agenda has nothing to do with ending drug use or addiction, but is all about controlling markets, territory, and people.

            Reserve Bank Governor Alan Bollard's bestselling Crisis was a first-hand account of the global financial meltdown. Two years on, this new edition of Crisis brings the story up to date. Crisis takes readers from the overheated markets of 2007, through the collapse of investment ba...nks and stressful times for numerous economies in 2008/9, and on to a fragile recovery around the world since 2010. In two new chapters for this edition, Bollard reveals how New Zealand is grappling with the impact of the US debt ceiling crisis, the current sovereign debt crises in Europe and the devastating effects of the Christchurch earthquakes. Bad news on the Reuters screen, emergency meetings and urgent decisions, making sure Christchurch has enough cash and ATMs: Crisis captures the drama of events as politicians, bankers and government officials struggle to deal with the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. Dr Alan Bollard has been governor of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand since 2002. Author of a number of books, he has previously been Secretary to the Treasury, Chair of the Commerce Commission and Director of the New Zealand Institute of Economic Research. Sarah Gaitanos is an independent writer and oral historian.

            Elderhood: Redefining Aging, Transforming Medicine, Reimagining Life

            Elderhood: Redefining Aging, Transforming Medicine, Reimagining Life (Hardback)

            As revelatory as Atul Gawande's Being Mortal, physician and award-winning author Louise Aronson's Elderhood is an essential, empathetic look at a vital but little respected stage of life. For more than 5,000 years, old has been defined as beginning between the ages of 60 and 70. ...That means most people alive today will spend more years in elderhood than in childhood, and many will be elders for 40 years or more. Yet at the very moment that humans are living longer than ever before, we've made old age into a disease, a condition to be dreaded, disparaged, neglected, and denied. Reminiscent of Oliver Sacks, noted Harvard-trained geriatrician Louise Aronson uses stories from her quarter century of caring for patients, and draws from history, science, literature, popular culture, and her own life to weave a vision of old age that's neither nightmare nor utopian fantasy. She challenges not only the way we look at aging but also the way we think and feel about medicine and humanity itself. Elderhood is for anyone who is, in the author's own words, an aging, i.e., still-breathing human being.
