The global financial crisis showed deep problems with mainstream economic predictions, as well as the vulnerability of the world's richest countries and the enormous potential of some poorer ones. China, India, Brazil, and other counties are growing faster than Europe or America and have weathered the crisis better. Is their growth due to following conventional economic guidelines or to strong state leadership and sometimes protectionism? These issues are basic to the question of which countries will grow in comind decades, as well as the likely conflicts over global trade policy, currency standards, and economic cooperation.

"History will be forever haunted by the 20th century's last, longest, legalistic right-wing coup attempt against a popular president. Limited to sleazy sex, political and policy differences were downplayed. The important, splendid, controversial essays collected in Aftermath provide learned context for this defining, though bizarre moment in American history and culture. Everyone interested in the individual and the law, politics and the future will want to read this book." ~Blanche Wiesen Cook,author of Eleanor Roosevelt
"The first serious collection of academic reflections about the scandal, the essays in Aftermath offer citizens, students, lawyers, and historians fresh insights about American law and liberalism, about culture wars and family values, and about the politics of scandal in the late twentieth century." ~Martha Minow,author of Between Vengeance and Forgiveness: Facing History After Genocide and Mass Violence
