Die politische und persönliche Autobiographie des europäischen Spitzenpolitikers Tony Blair fuhr 1997 den größten Wahlsieg der Labour Party in der britischen Geschichte ein und beendete damit eine 18-jährige Regierungszeit der Konservativen. Als Premierminister stand er bald im Ruf eines dynamischen Staatenlenkers, der mit seinem New Labour den Stillstand und Reformstau der Nach-Thatcher-Ära wirkungsvoll beendete. In seinen Memoiren gibt Tony Blair jetzt unverstellt Einblick in sein privates und politisches Leben und Wirken, wobei neben all den Erfolgen auch die Kontroversen und Enttäuschungen (Stichwort: Irak) nicht ausgeblendet werden. Ein Buch, das die Komplexitäten unserer globalisierten Welt und die Herausforderungen an Führungskräfte über das Politische hinaus konkret erfahrbar werden lässt und zudem Orientierung für die Zukunft bietet. Enthält Hintergrundinformationen aus erster Hand über die internationale Politik der letzten anderthalb Jahrzehnte.

Statistik ("Staatenkunde"), Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung und die Philosophie der Wahrscheinlichkeit sind auch als "siamesische Drillinge" bekannt. Das Buch analysiert den Werdegang der Statistik und zeigt Verbindungen zwischen der internalistischen Geschichte der Formalismen und Werkzeuge sowie der externalistisch orientierten Geschichte der Institutionen auf. Der Spannungsbogen erstreckt sich vom Vorabend der Französischen Revolution bis hin zum Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs, wobei Frankreich, Deutschland, England und die USA ausführlich behandelt werden. Was haben Richter und Astronomen gemeinsam? Wer waren die "politischen Arithmetiker"? Was ist ein "Durchschnittsmensch"? Wie ändert sich im Laufe der Zeit das, was man "Realismus" nennt? Kann man vom Teil auf das Ganze schließen? Und wenn ja, warum? Welche Rolle spielt der Franziskanerorden? Wir begegnen Adolphe Quetelet, Karl Pearson, Egon Pearson, Francis Galton, Emile Durkheim und vielen anderen. Glücksspiele, Zufall, Bayesscher Ansatz, das St. Petersburger Paradoxon, der Choleravibrio, Erblichkeit, das Galtonsche Brett, Taxonomie, Wahlprognosen, Arbeitslosigkeit und Ungleichheit, die Entstehung der Arten, die Ordnung der Dinge und die Dinge des Lebens – das sind die Themen des Buches.
