Conventional wisdom holds that China's burgeoning economic power has reduced the United States to little more than a customer and borrower of Beijing. The rise of China, many feel, necessarily means the decline of the West--the United States in particular. Not so, writes Edward Steinfeld. If anything, China's economic emergence is good for America. In this fascinating new book, Steinfeld asserts that China's growth is fortifying American commercial supremacy, because (as the title says) China is playing our game. By seeking to realize its dream of modernization by integrating itself into the Western economic order, China is playing by our rules, reinforcing the dominance of our companies and regulatory institutions. The impact of the outside world has been largely beneficial to China's development, but also enormously disruptive. China has in many ways handed over--outsourced--the remaking of its domestic economy and domestic institutions to foreign companies and foreign rule-making authorities. For Chinese companies now, participation in global production also means obedience to foreign rules. At the same time, even as these companies assemble products for export to the West, the most valuable components for those products come from the West. America's share of global manufacturing, by value, has actually increased since 1990. Within China, the R&D centers established by Western companies attract the country's best scientists and engineers, and harness that talent to global, rather than indigenous Chinese, innovation efforts. In many ways, both Chinese and American society are benefiting as a result. That said, the pressures on China are intense. China is modeling its economy on the United States, with vast consequences in a country with a small fraction of America's per-capita income and scarcely any social safety net. Walmartization is not something that Asian manufacturing power is doing to us; rather, it is how we are transforming China. From outsourcing to energy, Steinfeld overturns the conventional wisdom in this incisive and richly researched account.

If every hockey player’s dream begins on a frozen pond, it reaches its pinnacle in a packed arena facing off against a bitter international rival. Could be the mighty Soviets. Could be the vainglorious Americans. Doesn’t matter, as long as the guys, and more recently, the women, who come from the farming villages, logging towns, and bustling cities of Canada show up to play the game the way we invented it to be played. That’s the way it’s been for a hundred years. No game matters more than the one that pits our best against the world’s best. From the earliest days of the past century, when milkmen still did their rounds in horse-drawn carts each morning, to the Sochi Olympics, where both the men and women stood on their blue lines with gold medals around their necks as the Canadian flag was raised. This beautiful book, with rare archival images, celebrates a hundred of the greatest moments from Hockey Canada, the organization that has given Canada its most cherished hockey memories. It’s Our Game is the definitive account of a century of Canadians working to be the best at the sport they love most.

Do you feel the pressure in today's hockey culture to train all year, play in numerous out-of-town tournaments, and pay thousands of extra dollars so that your hockey player can compete with the best? If so, you're not alone. Today's prevailing wisdom states that year-round intense hockey training, starting at the youngest ages, is necessary to develop elite hockey players. It argues that families must choose between hockey and school events, family dinners, study time, and other sports. The good news is that families need not feel pressured to choose because this prevalent hockey training philosophy is not only in many ways unethical, it is also detrimental. Year-round intense hockey schedules are damaging youth hockey player's futures. Too much hockey is hurting athletes academically, socially, and ironically, athletically as well. We don't have to accept this state of affairs. Although time is running out, we can still restore sanity and integrity to the game of hockey. This won't be easy. It'll require families to start resisting the arguably enormous pressure to always do more. Community associations, coaches, professional hockey players, and many others will need to step up in order to change the tide. It's time to save our game.

Many of the most effective churches consist of some sort of combination of “traditional” and “contemporary.” However, they are not simply “blended.” In fact, much of what they do is beyond mere categorization of “traditional” and “contemporary.” Instead, they are “missional” and “strategic” in their approach. Using sports metaphor, author George Hunter lays the groundwork for a new line of thinking, a new identity, in order to incite a quiet revolution.
