Adrian accomplished the almost impossible when he skateboarded across the world. He left his teaching job in Singapore to pursue his adventurous goal in 2017. For 2 years, he skated on a longboard for 24,000 km, across 33 countries in 4 continents. He documents this arduous journey with amazingly truthful reflections and a dash of humour. Through his journey, we ride pillion as he skates from Colombia to Highlands of the Andes Mountain range to Hot, fiery grasslands of Chaoco region to remote corners of Patagonia before completing his South America leg in Ushuaia. Candidly written and filled with surprises, Adrian shares his countless mishaps, magical connections and encounters of compassion bestowed upon him by locals he met along the way. More than a travelogue, this account gives a deeper insight into the profound beauty of travel in its raw sense; we catch a glimpse of what motivates the man – that even in his darkest, lowest moments, Adrian finds hidden reserves and dig his dark humour to keep himself emotionally afloat and accomplish what no others had done before. It is the kind of travel story that transports you to a place and moment like no mainstream travel books could.

International Organization in Time investigates why reformers often pledge to unify international organizations (IOs), but end up fragmenting them instead. The book reconstructs the institutional history of the World Health Organization (WHO) since its creation in 1946. It theorizes the fragmentation trap, which is both a cause and a consequence of reform failure in the WHO. A comparison between the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) illustrates the relevance of path dependence and fragmentation across the United Nations (UN) system. As the UN approaches its 70th anniversary, this book helps to understand the path dependent dynamics that reformers encounter in international organizations.

This book is devoted to a systems-theoretical presentation of the main results of applying the systemic yoyo model and relevant analytical tools to the topics of money and financial institutions. The author presents the main concepts and results of the subject matter in the language of systems science, which has in the past century prompted revolutionary applicati ons of systems research in various subfields of traditional disciplines. This volume applies a brand new logic of reasoning to some of the unsett led problems in the area of money and banking. Due to the particular systemic approach employed, the reader will be able to see how different economic activities are implicitly related to each other and how financial decisions are holistically made in reference to seemingly unrelated events. That is, the learning of this particular subject matter takes place at a different, more elevated level, from which, among others, economies are respectively seen as both closed and open systems; their interactions emulate those of rotational pools of fluids. This book can be used as a textbook for researchers and graduate students in economics, finance, systems science, and mathematical / systems modeling. It will also be useful as a reference book for applied economists and various policy makers.
