How America's high standard of living came to be and why future growth is under threat In the century after the Civil War, an economic revolution improved the American standard of living in ways previously unimaginable. Electric lighting, indoor plumbing, motor vehicles, air travel, and television transformed households and workplaces. But has that era of unprecedented growth come to an end? Weaving together a vivid narrative, historical anecdotes, and economic analysis, The Rise and Fall of American Growth challenges the view that economic growth will continue unabated, and demonstrates that the life-altering scale of innovations between 1870 and 1970 cannot be repeated. Robert Gordon contends that the nation's productivity growth will be further held back by the headwinds of rising inequality, stagnating education, an aging population, and the rising debt of college students and the federal government, and that we must find new solutions. A critical voice in the most pressing debates of our time, The Rise and Fall of American Growth is at once a tribute to a century of radical change and a harbinger of tougher times to come.

While most people acknowledge the toll of burning fossil fuels on earth’s climate, few consider what will happen when demand for carbon-based fuels inevitably outstrips supply. In The Age of Sustainability Denis Pombriant evaluates and recommends solutions for energy provisioning and reducing carbon pollution that will keep the planet habitable and accommodating to human life. Far from being an unsolvable problem climate change and its solution should be seen as another in a long line of inflection points that have dotted human history. Cracking the problem is more like solving Rubic's Cube than playing whack-a-mole. As in all earlier eras, the next evolutionary step involves disruptive innovations beginning with new energy alternatives and treating carbon pollution as a chronic problem rather than as an emergency. By doubling the amount of photosynthesis planet-wide, we can stabilize climate and provision for the additional billions of people who will be born by mid-century. The Age of Sustainability shows that many the innovations needed to provide workable solutions are already available and that the free market is already adopting them. It also demonstrates how earlier generations have followed a common path to solving the big challenges of their times. This is a hopeful tour of solutions and, most importantly including economic models that will stabilize climate and provide a livable future for the human race.

Front Pages is an illustrated novel of the real world created by the painter Nancy Chunn. Every day of 1996 Chunn claimed as an artistic canvas the front page of the New York Times. Using specialized rubber stamps and bold pastels to enhance, eradicate, and alter images and text, she created a commentary - colorful, intense, smart, compassionate, visually explosive - on the year's events and the power of the press. When these artworks were shown at the Ronald Feldman Gallery in New York, they created a sensation. Chunn's treatment of the events we all lived through - the Presidential campaign, the crash of TWA flight 800, the wars in Chechnya and Rwanda - will strike an immediate chord in readers tuned in to the complex frequencies of a political world awash in images and news. Gary Indiana's interview with the artist provides lively and intimate insights into the artistic process as means of talking back to power and engaging with the world. Front Pages is being published to coincide with an exhibition of these works at The Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, January 10-March 2, 1998.
