    Synopsis
    The best of W. Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne's articles on blue ocean strategy, all in one place. The seminal book Blue Ocean Strategy has sold over 3.6 million copies globally and is in print in 44 languages. But much of W. Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne's work on creating new market spaces was originally published in the pages of Harvard Business Review. This book brings the best of those articles together all in one place. Piece by piece, these articles explain the process of creating 'blue oceans' - uncontested market spaces, untainted by competition. Kim and Mauborgne introduce tools for exploring and exploiting these markets, such as the value curve, the strategy canvas, the price corridor of the mass, and the business model guide - tools that have come to make up the blue ocean strategy framework. This collection also features the authors' latest Harvard Business Review article, 'Red Ocean Traps'. Whether or not you're familiar with blue ocean strategy, this book will give you a new perspective on this important framework - and help you implement it in your organization.

    Synopsis
    The second volume of the Pulitzer Prize-winning biography that The Washington Post hailed as 'an engrossing masterpiece' Charismatic, singularly determined, and controversial, W.E.B. Du Bois was a historian, novelist, editor, sociologist, founder of the NAACP, advocate of women's rights, and the premier architect of the Civil Rights movement. His hypnotic voice thunders out of David Levering Lewis's monumental biography like a locomotive under full steam. This second volume of what is already a classic work begins with the triumphal return from WWI of African American veterans to the shattering reality of racism and lynching even as America discovers the New Negro of literature and art. In stunning detail, Lewis chronicles the little-known political agenda behind the Harlem Renaissance and Du Bois's relentless fight for equality and justice, including his steadfast refusal to allow whites to interpret the aspirations of black America. Seared by the rejection of terrified liberals and the black bourgeoisie during the Communist witch-hunts, Du Bois ended his days in uncompromising exile in newly independent Ghana. In re-creating the turbulent times in which he lived and fought, Lewis restores the inspiring and famed Du Bois to his central place in American history.

    Synopsis
    THE LAST WITNESSFor Philadelphia homicide detective Matt Payne, investigating a young woman’s murder in a Society Hill home invasion uncovers an ugly underworld—that of Mexican drug cartels and the Russian mob. Foreign girls are being smuggled in to work in the sex trade, and now some of them are dying or just disappearing. The trail leads right to Philadelphia. Teenage American girls lured from local foster homes have vanished. And the lone living witness has gone into hiding. He knows it’s got to be connected. For Payne, finding that last witness is absolutely critical—before the Russians, the cartels, or anyone else gets to her first.DEADLY ASSETSIn Philadelphia homicide is at an all-time high. With each violent crime, tension builds between the police department, the mayor’s office, and the Citizens Police Oversight Committee. The most vocal activist places the blame squarely on Homicide Sergeant Matt Payne. Now Payne must navigate death threats and misdirected public outrage to follow a strange pattern in seemingly unrelated killings. Ordered to stay out of the line of fire, he struggles to solve the murder of a reporter who was just as unwilling as Payne himself to let death threats keep him from his job. As Sergeant Payne looks for justice, journalist Mickey O’Hara looks to finish the story where his fellow reporter left off. Both men know that they cannot back down, though this may be the end of their reputations, their work, and even their lives.BROKEN TRUSTHomicide Sergeant Matt Payne is beginning to think nothing can shock him—until the case of a young socialite’s death lands on his desk. The Camilla Rose Morgan he’d known for years was beautiful and brilliant, juggling charity fund-raisers while working toward the MBA that would let her take her place in the family’s multibillion-dollar company. How was it possible that she’d jumped from the balcony of her penthouse? Her brother tells Payne she’d been battling a lifetime of mental demons, and there is plenty of evidence to support what he says, but something just doesn’t sit right. The more Payne digs, the more complications he discovers, and when someone slips him copies of trust fund papers that Camilla Rose was fighting to have nullified just before her death, an even darker picture begins to emerge. Reputations and lives are on the line. If he takes one step wrong, his own life may be among them.

    Synopsis
    TOP SECRETIn the first weeks after World War II, a squeaky-clean new second lieutenant named James D. Cronley Jr. is recruited for a new covert enterprise that will eventually be transformed into something called the CIA. One war may have ended, but another one has already begun, against an enemy that is bigger, smarter, and more vicious: the Soviet Union. The Soviets have hit the ground running, and Cronley’s job is to help frustrate them, harass them, and spy on them in any way he can. His recruiter thinks he has the potential to become an asset—though, of course, he could also screw up spectacularly. And in his first top-secret assignment, it looks like that’s exactly what may happen. He’s got seven days to extract a vital piece of information from a Soviet agent, but Cronley’s managed to rile up his superior officers, and if he fails, it may be one of the shortest intelligence careers in history. There are enemies everywhere—and, as Cronley is about to find out, some of them even wear the same uniform he does.THE ASSASSINATION OPTIONJames Cronley thought he had done well—he didn’t know he’d done this well. His first successful mission for the about-to-be-official new Directorate of Central Intelligence has drawn all kinds of attention, some welcome, some not. On the plus side, he’s now a captain, promoted to chief, DCI-Europe, and in charge of a top-secret spy operation. On the minus side, a lot of people would like to know about that operation, including not only the Soviets but also his own Pentagon, as well as a seething J. Edgar Hoover. Cronley knows that if just one thing goes wrong, he’s likely to get thrown to the wolves. As if that weren’t enough pressure, complications are springing up on all sides. He’s discovered a surprising alliance between the former German intelligence chief and, of all things, the Mossad. A German family whom Cronley never knew he had has suddenly, and suspiciously, emerged. And he’s due for a rendezvous with an undercover agent against the Soviets known only as Seven-K. It’s when he meets Seven-K that he gets the real surprise.

    Synopsis
    THE LIEUTENANTSThey were the young ones, the bright ones, the ones with the dreams. From the Nazi-prowled wastes of North Africa to the bloody corridors of Europe, they honorably answered the call. War–it was their duty, their job, their life. They marched off as boys and they came back–those who made it–as soldiers and professionals forged in the heat of battle....THE CAPTAINSIt was more than an incident. It was a deadly assault across the 38th parallel. It was the Korean War. In the fear and the frenzy of battle, those who had served with heroism before were called again by America to man the trenches and sandbag bunkers. From Pusan to the Yalu, they drove forward with commands too new and tanks too old, brothers in war, bonded together in battle as they had never been in peace.…THE MAJORSDien Bien Phu. Saigon. Hanoi. In 1954, they were only exotic names from a French campaign halfway around the world. But now American fighting men–proven on the bloody beaches of Normandy and in the minefields of Korea–are summoned to help beat back the guerilla forces of Ho Chi Minh. To some, the “secret” war in Indochina was the depth of folly. To others, like the majors, it pointed to the heights of glory....

    Synopsis
    THE COLONELSThey were the professionals, the men who had been toughened by combat in the mine-laden fields of Europe, in Korea, in Greece, in Indochina. Now, in the twilight of a dying decade, they must return to the United States to forge a new type of American soldier—one to be tested on the beaches of Cuba and in a new war yet to come.…THE BERETSThey were the chosen ones — and the ones who chose to be the best. Never before had the United States given so select a group of fighting men such punishing preparation. Now they were heading for their ultimate test of skill and nerve and sacrifice, in a war unlike any they or their country had ever fought before, in a land that most of America still knew nothing about — Vietnam....THE GENERALSThey were the leaders, the men who made the decisions that changed the outcome of battles... and the fate of continents. From the awesome landing at Normandy to the torturous campaigns of the South Pacific, from the frozen hills of Korea to the devastated wastes of Dien Bien Phu, they had earned their stars. Now they led America’s finest against her most relentless enemy deep in the jungles of Southeast Asia. It was a new kind of war, but the Generals led a new kind of army, ready for battle — and glory....

    Synopsis
    THE NEW BREEDAs the Congo erupts in violent rebellion in 1964, old faces and new find themselves swept into a maelstrom of danger as the United States becomes more and more deeply involved. Husbands and wives, generals, colonels, and cocksure privates find that there is now not only a new breed of soldier, but a new breed of war—sudden, savage, played by no rules ever known before. To learn it, the men of the brotherhood must risk everything, but when the summons comes, they are ready to answer the call....THE AVIATORS1964. The Vietnam War has begun to escalate, its new style of battle demanding new weapons and tactics and men who can use them. Overnight, it seems, the U. S. Army must scramble to create its first-ever Air Assault Division, a force critical to its chances of success, but the obstacles facing it are staggering—untrained men, mysteriously failing aircraft, vicious inter-service rivalries. As the hostilities increase, the warriors and the women who love them are swept into the struggle, their personal and professional lives twisting and intertwining as they race against time—and the fortunes of war….SPECIAL OPS In November 1964, Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara went to the Congo with two hundred men, intent on making it his first step in taking over Africa and South America. He failed, thanks in large part to the efforts of an intrepid band of Green Berets. Licking his wounds, he retreated to Cuba to recruit more men and try the same thing in Bolivia. He failed there, too. In fact, he died there, and thus, despite his incompetence, became a glorious martyr to the cause. But who was trying to kill him, really—and who was trying to keep him alive? The brotherhood is back—Craig Lowell, Sandy Felter, Jack Portet, Geoff Craig, Robert Bellmon, George Washington 'Father' Lunsford, Master Sergeant Doubting Thomas—and their mission has never been more dramatic and deadly....

    Synopsis
    BY ORDER OF THE PRESIDENTTwo armed men board a 727 in Angola. They slit the throat of the lone crew and fly to parts unknown. The consternation is immediate, as the CIA, FBI, and other agencies race to find out what happened, in the process elbowing one another in the sides a little too vigorously. Fed up, the president of the United States turns to an outside investigator to determine the truth, an Army intelligence officer serving as special assistant to the secretary of homeland security. Delta Force major Carlos Guillermo Castillo, known as Charley, a West Point graduate, a pilot, and a veteran of Desert Storm, has a sharp eye for the facts. Traveling undercover, he flies to Africa, and there, helped and hindered by unexpected allies and determined enemies, begins to untangle a story of frightening dimensions - a story that, unless he can do something about it, will end very badly indeed, not only for Castillo...but for all of America.THE HOSTAGECharley Castillo works with the Department of Homeland Security, but more and more is the man to whom the President turns when he needs an investigation done discreetly. And no situation demands discretion more than the one before them now. An American diplomat’s wife is kidnapped in Argentina, and her husband murdered before her eyes. Her children will be next, she is told, if she doesn’t tell them where her brother is—a brother, as it turns out, who may know quite a bit about the burgeoning UN/Iraq oil-for-food scandal. There is an awful lot of money flying around, and an awful lot of hands are reaching up to grab it—and some of those hands don’t mind shedding as much blood as it takes. Before the investigation is over...it might even be Castillo’s blood.THE HUNTERSTwo brutal murders and millions of missing dollars in the growing UN/Iraq oil-for-food scandal have led Castillo and his team to an estancia in Uruguay, where the man they seek is murdered before their eyes. Who is responsible? Most likely, the people higher up in the dirty-money chain - those willing to risk anything to keep their secrets from being revealed. They’ve left enough of a trail for Castillo to pick up the scent, and with carte blanche from the President of the United States to follow it wherever it takes him, he ends up…well, not exactly where he expected….

    Synopsis
    COVERT WARRIORSThere’s an uneasy and unholy alliance building across the Caribbean. Few in the U.S. government want to believe that a Third World country and its chest-thumping leader could pose a credible threat-but then why are the Chinese helping to train its special forces? Why are the Russians helping to build a nuclear power plant? Charley Castillo and his men go in to investigate, but they have no idea what they have just gotten themselves into. By the time they finish connecting the dots, they will be on the hit lists of the Kremlin, the Cubans, the Venezuelans, and the drug cartels-and totally out on their own. Whatever happens next, they’ll have to do it by themselves.HAZARDOUS DUTYMexican drug cartels are shooting up the streets of Laredo and El Paso. Somali pirates are holding three U.S. tankers for ransom. The President of the United States is fed up and, as Commander in Chief, has what he thinks is a pretty bright idea — to get hold of Colonel Charley Castillo and his merry band and get them on the case. Unfortunately, that will be difficult. Everybody knows that the President hates Castillo’s guts, and has just had him forcibly retired from the military, and now Castillo’s men are scattered far and wide, many of them in hiding. There are also whispers that the President himself is unstable — the word “nutcake” has been mentioned. How will it all play out? No one knows for sure, but for Castillo and company, only one thing is definite: This is going to be hazardous duty.

    Synopsis
    LINE OF FIREWhile the bloody battle for control of the Solomons rages on, two Marines are trapped at a Coastwatcher station on tiny Buka Island. They are there to report on Japanese air activity, and their position is becoming increasingly perilous, even while their supplies are diminishing rapidly; if they are not rescued soon, they may never make it off the island. On the orders of newly-commissioned Marine Brigadier General Fleming Pickering, a team is assembled: Captain Charles Galloway, still recuperating from his crash into the sea; Second Lieutenant Malcolm Pickering, Fleming’s son and the owner of a dangerous daredevil streak; Lieutenant Ken “Killer” McCoy, China Marine and hardened veteran; Sergeant Thomas McCoy, his brother, a man of such temper and talent that he keeps getting busted back to PFC and then promoted back again; and Sergeant George Hart, the youngest detective ever on the St. Louis vice squad, tricked into military service and now determined to make his mark. These men are about to attempt the impossible: to take the beleaguered Marines off Buka, under the very noses of the Japanese. They will have only one chance — so they’d better get it right....CLOSE COMBATAs Japanese forces close in for an all-out effort to recapture Guadalcanal from the American forces occupying the island, many fates converge and intertwine. First Lieutenant William Dunn, twenty-one years old but already one of the only two pilots remaining from his fighter squadron’s original sixteen, must learn what it is like to lead men — and to lose them. Hot-tempered Sergeant Thomas McCoy finds he has a hero’s welcome waiting stateside — if he can avoid a court-martial first. On a bloody island, Major Jake Dillon discovers just how much combat is involved in a combat correspondent’s life. First Lieutenant R.B. Macklin, a consummate bully, is put on a War Bond tour so he will not endanger his own men. General Fleming Pickering, on a ticklish diplomatic mission, attempts to balance the hot and mighty temperaments of General Douglas MacArthur, OSS Chief William “Wild Bill” Donovan and Secretary of the Navy Frank Knox. Corporal Robert Easterbrook, still wet behind the ears, discovers that the price of success in wartime may be uncomfortably high. From the Solomons to Australia to Washington, D.C., the warriors, plus the wives and sweethearts who love them, once more find themselves with the challenges of their lives....

    Synopsis
    BEHIND THE LINESWorld War II. On the island of Mindanao, the Philippines, a man calling himself 'General' Fertig has set himself up as a guerrilla leader to harass the Japanese. Army records show that the only officer named Fertig in the Philippines is a reserve lieutenant colonel of the Corps of Engineers, reported MIA on Luzon. Still, the reports filtering out are interesting, and it's Marine Lieutenant Ken McCoy's mission to sneak behind the lines and find out if Fertig is for real. With McCoy is a motley group put together as a compromise between the warring factions of Douglas MacArthur and the OSS chief Bill Donovan. Together, McCoy and his men steal into the heart of enemy territory and there, amid firefights and jungle camps, encounter more than they had bargained for. Before they're done, each will undergo a test of his own personal mettle—with results that will surprise even the most hardened of them.IN DANGER’S PATHDesperate to find someone to unite the battling interests of General Douglas MacArthur, Admiral Chester Nimitz, and OSS Chief “Wild Bill” Donovan, President Franklin D. Roosevelt puts Fleming Pickering in charge of the OSS’s Pacific operations. Immediately, two urgent missions fall into his lap: to contact and rescue a band of former American servicemen and their dependents on the run from the Japanese in the Gobi Desert of Mongolia; and at the same time, to set up a weather station in the Gobi to help direct planned aerial attacks against Japan. Pickering has a free hand to use whomever he pleases, and he is soon surrounded by many of the Marines on whom he has come to rely during the war: men like Ken McCoy, Ed Banning, Jake Dillon, Ernie Zimmerman, and—much to his surprise—a certain hotshot pilot named Malcolm Pickering, his son. Together they will venture in terra very much incognita—and with luck they may even come out alive....

    Synopsis
    UNDER FIREKorea, June 1, 1950. Captain Ken McCoy’s report on probable North Korean hostilities meets with so much bureaucratic displeasure that not only is it promptly suppressed, but McCoy himself is kicked out of the Corps. At least two outfits, however, are not impressed by such infighting: the fledgling CIA, which promptly hires McCoy; and the North Koreans, who on June 25th invade across the 38th parallel. Immediately, veterans scattered throughout military and civilian life are called up, many with only seventy-two hours’ notice. For Fleming Pickering and Pick, his daredevil son, and Ed Banning, George Hart, Jack Stecker, Jake Dillon, Ernie Zimmerman—and for the women who love them—names such as Inchon and Pusan will acquire a new, bloody reality, and Korea will become not only a new battlefield—but their greatest challenge of all....RETREAT, HELL!It is the fall of 1950. The Marines have made a pivotal breakthrough at Inchon, but a roller coaster awaits them. The bit in his teeth, Douglas MacArthur is intent on surging across the 38th parallel toward the Yalu River, where he is certain no Chinese are waiting for him, while Major Ken McCoy, operating undercover, hears a different story entirely, and is just as intent on nailing down the truth before it is too late. Meanwhile, Brigadier General Fleming Pickering, shuttling between two continents, works desperately to mediate the escalating battle between MacArthur and President Harry Truman, while trying to keep his mind from the cold fact that somewhere out there, his own daredevil pilot son, Pick, is lost behind enemy lines - and may be lost forever. Before Retreat, Hell! is finished, all their fates will be determined - and for some of them, it will be a bitter pill indeed.
