New debuts are George Friedman (he's the founder and CEO of the firm Stratfor, which complies and publishes geopolitical data) and his new book that looks ahead -- politically, socially, economically -- at the next ten years ... and McGregor's take on the very, well, cliquish Communist politicos in China and their grip on power.
