1. Empty Planet: The Shock of Global Population Decline
An award-winning journalist and leading international social researcher make the provocative argument that the global population will soon begin to decline, dramatically reshaping the social, political, and economic landscape.
2. Moment of Life
For the last twenty years, Melinda Gates has been on a mission to find solutions for people with the most urgent needs, wherever they live. Throughout this journey, one thing has become increasingly clear to her: If you want to lift a society up, you need to stop keeping women down.
3. Call Sign Chaos
A clear-eyed account of learning how to lead in a chaotic world, by General Jim Mattis–the former Secretary of Defense and one of the most formidable strategic thinkers of our time–and Bing West, a former assistant secretary of defense and combat Marine.
4. Dignity: Seeking Respect in Back Row America
With stark photo essays and unforgettable true stories, Chris Arnade cuts through “expert” pontification on inequality, addiction, and poverty to allow those who have been left behind to define themselves on their own terms.
5. The Years that Matter Most: How College Makes or Breaks Us
Does college still work? Is the system designed just to protect the privileged and leave everyone else behind? Or can a college education today provide real opportunity to young Americans seeking to improve their station in life?
6. Chernobyl
In April 1986, a huge explosion erupted at the Chernobyl nuclear power station in northern Ukraine. This series follows the stories of the men and women, who tried to contain the disaster, as well as those who gave their lives preventing a subsequent and worse one.
7. Ozark
A financial adviser drags his family from Chicago to the Missouri Ozarks, where he must launder $500 million in five years to appease a drug boss.
8. The Spy
