"Jeg tror jeg drømte noe om klokker, at jeg stod inne i en urmakerforretning på Drammensveien, dit far tok meg med en gang, men nå var jeg aleine, og klokkene tikket fra alle kanter og ingen viste samme tid. Så våknet jeg av en annen drøm, den gamle drømmen, jeg gikk på ski, men med bare én stav, og jeg hadde akkurat kommet fram. Lakenet var vått ved siden av meg. Jeg stod opp, reiv lakenet av senga, hengte det ut til tørk over karmen. Det var nesten morgen, et ganske fint lys var på vei, og da så jeg laknene som hang ut av alle de andre vinduene, hvite, våte lakner, en søndag morgen, vi vinka til hverandre, alle gutta, og visste at det var enda noen timer til foreldrene våre fant det for godt å våkne."
Twenty-five years ago when Mathew Burrows went to work for the CIA as an intelligence analyst, the world seemed frozen.
Then came the fall of the Berlin Wall and the implosion of the Soviet Union suddenly, unpredictability became a universal theme and foresight was critical. For the past decade, Burrows has overseen the creation of the Global Trends report - the key futurist guide for the White House, Departments of State and Defense, and Homeland Security. Global Trends has a history of making bold predictions and being right: *In 2004, it argued that al-Qaeda's centralized operations would dissolve and be replaced by groups, cells, and individuals - the very model of the 2012 Boston bombings. *In 2008, it included a scenario dubbed October Surprise, imagining a devastating late-season hurricane hitting an unprepared New York City.
Now, Burrows - for the first time - has expanded the most recent Global Trends report into a full-length narrative, forecasting the tectonic shifts that will drive us to 2030.
A staggering amount of wholesale change is happening - from unprecedented and widespread aging to rampant urbanization and growth in a global middle class to an eastward shift in economic power and a growing number of disruptive technologies. Even our physical geography is changing as sea levels rise and faster commercial shipping routes open up through a warming Arctic region. The book concludes with its most provocative section: four fictional paths to 2030 with imagined storylines and characters based on analysis by the most authoritative figures in the intelligence community. As Burrows argues, we are living through some of the greatest and most momentous developments in history. Either we take charge and direct those or we are at their mercy. The stakes are particularly high for America's standing in the world and for ordinary Americans who want to maintain their quality of life. Running the gamut from scary to reassuring, this riveting book is essential reading.
James, Duke of Monmouth, the adored illegitimate son of Charles II, was born in exile the year his grandfather was executed and the English monarchy abolished. Abducted from his mother on his father's orders, he emerged from a childhood in the backstreets of Rotterdam to command the ballrooms of Paris, the brothels of Covent Garden and the battlefields of Flanders. Pepys described him as 'the most skittish, leaping gallant that ever I saw, always in action, vaulting or leaping or clambering'. Such was his appeal that when the monarchy itself came under threat, the cry was for Monmouth to succeed Charles II as King. He inspired both delight and disgust, adulation and abhorrence and, in time, love and loyalty almost beyond fathoming. Louis XIV was his mentor, Nell Gwyn his protector, D'Artagnan his lieutenant, William of Orange his confidant, John Dryden his censor and John Locke his comrade. Anna Keay matches rigorous scholarship with a storyteller's gift to enrapturing effect.
She brings to life the warm, courageous and handsome Duke of Monmouth, a man who by his own admission 'lived a very dissolute and irregular life', but who was ultimately prepared to risk everything for honour and justice. His life, culminating in his fateful invasion, provides a sweeping history of the turbulent decades in which England as we know it was forged.
