            Big egos, public spats, betrayal and revenge - the decline of the national carrier has all the makings of a modern corporate tragedy. So how did it come to this? This is the inside story of how Qantas flew off course. From the outset, Qantas boss Alan Joyce put Qantas on a collis...ion course for bust-ups with anyone or anything that got in its way. Once an Australian identity, Qantas has become a shadow of its former self as its past caught up with it and the company began to tear itself apart under the leadership of Joyce. From the infamous decision to ground Qantas' entire fleet, his falling out with former mentor and predecessor Geoff Dixon, the bitter fight with John Borghetti, the man who lost out to him for the top job at Qantas, to the near crash of a Qantas A380 and the detention of Qantas executives in Vietnam. This vivid, highly readable account of the fall of Qantas is the story of big egos in a high-stakes fight for supremacy of the skies, and of a company of tribes at war with itself.

            Rare earths, indispensable inputs for high tech, military, and renewable applications, remain in the hands of China, a power on the rise. Largely out of the public eye prior to 2010, rare earths, and China's monopoly over them, became international news after China unofficially h...alted exports to Japan, the United States, and Europe following a collision between Chinese and Japanese boats in the East China Sea. Focusing on China's monopoly over the rare earth industry, this book examines the impacts of growing worldwide resource competition and the complexities policymakers face as they develop strategies and responses in an increasingly globalized world.
