Meta Geopolitics Of Outer Space from the Author: Nayef R.F. Al-Rodhan. Meta-Geopolitics of Outer Space: An Analysis of Space Power, Security and Governance takes a novel look at the geopolitics of outer space through the prism of an innovative multidimensional Meta-geopolitics framework. One of the most distinctive features of Meta-geopolitics is its all-encompassing analysis of space power, security and geopolitical actors. In comparison with traditional geopolitical approaches, deeply grounded in geography, demography and economics, the Meta-geopolitics framework includes space and broadens the definition of space power to include additional state capacities like health, social, and domestic politics and environmental dimensions in its key components. This framework also enables a more comprehensive assessment of the strategic orientations of major state and non-state space powers and serves as a basis for the development of a new space governance model. This proposed space governance model employs a 'symbiotic realism' approach to international relations and a 'multi-sum' approach to global security that will enhance the space power potential of actors while ensuring its sustainability in a competitive yet globalized environment.

Neo Statecraft And Meta Geopolitics from the Author: Nayef R. F. Al-Rodhan. This book proposes an innovative and comprehensive framework for conducting statecraft in the 21st century. Called neo-statecraft, this framework is based on the reconciliation of power, interests and justice. The author proposes four substrates of neo-statecraft: 1) a new structure he calls meta-geopolitics, which includes seven inter-related dimensions of state power and identifies a Geostrategic Tripwire Pivotal Corridor (TPC); 2) a sustainable national security paradigm that stresses the centrality of justice, symbiotic realism and transcultural synergy; 3) a new concept called just power, which states that power must be smart as well as just, and that global justice is above all a national interest of all states; and 4) a new concept called reconciliation statecraft of the eight global interests. Dr. Nayef R.F. Al-Rodhan is Senior Scholar in Geostrategy and Director of the Programme on the Geopolitical Implications of Globalisation and Transnational Security at the Geneva Centre f

Second Wind from the Author: Dr. Bill Thomas. From one of the most original and innovative thinkers in medicine, this “stirring and splendid book” (Wall Street Journal) offers groundbreaking insight to the postwar generation on facing their second coming of age, a developmental opportunity to reshape their lives and our society. Dr. Thomas is at the forefront of a strong nationwide movement to reframe “life after adulthood” as an exciting stage of human growth and development. In Second Wind, he explores the dreams and disappointments, the struggles and triumphs of a generation of 78 million people who once said they would never grow old and never trust anyone over thirty. Instilled with the belief that they would always be Joni Mitchell’s “stardust,” many Boomers are having a harder time transitioning into elderhood than previous generations. But the reality is that every 10.8 seconds an American turns sixty-five. Among all the human beings who have ever lived to see old age, more than half are living among us right now. In Second Wind, Dr. Thomas attempts to guide Boomers into this final developmental stage filled with hope and a new sense of what is possible. As the Post War generation entered adulthood, they saw three models of what an adult could be: hippies, activists, and squares—the “square” model becoming the dominant model. Now, many Boomers now feel “stuck” inside the frenzied, performance-based, money-driven world that no longer suits them. But if they can learn to go slower, go deeper, and be more connected to themselves, their loved ones, and other members of their community, they can find the wisdom, happiness, and fulfillment that comes with a life that is in balance.
