Teaching Notes

United States

In this book, CFR President Richard N. Haass offers a timely examination of a world increasingly defined by disorder. Rich in history, the book examines today’s world, how we got here, and what needs doing. It argues for an updated global operating system with a new approach to sovereignty, providing steps for how to get there.

Brazil

The Amazon rainforest absorbs more greenhouse gases than any other tropical forest. But in Brazil, deforestation has claimed nearly a fifth of its tree cover, which threatens biodiversity and contributes to climate change.

Global

In his new book, State Capitalism: How the Return of Statism is Transforming the World, Council on Foreign Relations Senior Fellow for Southeast Asia Joshua Kurlantzick analyzes the rise in state capitalism in developing nations, including China, Russia, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Brazil, and South Africa, among other states. He defines state capitalism as situations in which governments control or exert significant influence over at least one-third of the largest corporations in a country.
