Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: El poder está cambiando de manos: de grandes ejércitos disciplinados a caóticas bandas de insurgentes; de gigantescas corporaciones a ágiles emprendedores; de los palacios presidenciales a las plazas públicas. Pero también está cambiando en sí mismo: cada vez es más difícil de ejercer y más fácil de perder. El resultado, como afirma el prestigioso analista internacional Moisés Naím, es que los líderes actuales tienen menos poder que sus antecesores, y que el potencial para que ocurran cambios repentinos y radicales sea mayor que nunca. En El fin del poder, Naím describe la lucha entre los grandes actores antes dominantes y los nuevos micropoderes que ahora les desafían en todos los ámbitos de la actividad humana. La energía iconoclasta de los micropoderes puede derrocar dictadores, acabar con los monopolios y abrir nuevas e increíbles oportunidades, pero también puede conducir al caos y la parálisis. A partir de estudios nuevos y provocadores y de su experiencia en asuntos internacionales, Naím explica cómo el fin del poder está remodelando el mundo en que vivimos. «El fin del poder cambiará tu manera de leer las noticias, tu manera de pensar en política y tu manera de mirar al mundo.» William Jefferson Clinton «Este libro fascinante debe provocar un debate sobre cómo gobernar un mundo en el que cada vez participan más personas.» Foreign Affairs «Un libro oportuno y perdurable.» Booklist «Un libro inteligente, heterodoxo, ilustrativo e innovador.» Zbigniew Brzezinski ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Mark Zuckerberg's inaugural pick for his "Year of Books" challenge, The End of Power updates the very notion of power for the 21st century. Power, we know, is shifting: From West to East and North to South, from presidential palaces to public squares, from once formidable corporate behemoths to nimble startups and, slowly but surely, from men to women. But power is not merely dispersing; it is also decaying. Those in power today are more constrained in what they can do with it and more at risk of losing it than ever before. In The End of Power, award-winning columnist and former Foreign Policy editor Moisés Naím illuminates the struggle between once-dominant megaplayers and the new micropowers challenging them in every field of human endeavor. Drawing on provocative, original research, Naím shows how the antiestablishment drive of micropowers can topple tyrants, dislodge monopolies, and open remarkable new opportunities, but it can also lead to chaos and paralysis. Naím deftly covers the seismic changes underway in business, religion, education, within families, and in all matters of war and peace. Examples abound in all walks of life: In 1977, eighty-nine countries were ruled by autocrats while today more than half the world's population lives in democracies. CEO's are more constrained and have shorter tenures than their predecessors. Modern tools of war, cheaper and more accessible, make it possible for groups like Hezbollah to afford their own drones. In the second half of 2010, the top ten hedge funds earned more than the world's largest six banks combined. Those in power retain it by erecting powerful barriers to keep challengers at bay. Today, insurgent forces dismantle those barriers more quickly and easily than ever, only to find that they themselves become vulnerable in the process. In this accessible and captivating book, Naím offers a revolutionary look at the inevitable end of power—and shows how it will change your world.
