☯ Full Synopsis : "A Different Kind of War Story takes us to the frontlines of one of the most brutal wars in recent history. The setting is Mozambique during the fifteen-year war of terror that took a million lives—mostly civilian—and completely destroyed homes, crops, hospitals, schools, and even access to water. The characters are the soldiers who fought it, the thieves and opportunists who profited from it, and the ordinary people whose lives were shattered by it and from whose ranks emerged the heroes and healers who created peace. Combining contemporary theory and innovative methodology, Nordstrom explores the nature and culture of terror warfare and raises thought-provoking questions about state power, civilian resistance, and the politics of identity. She compares the conflict in Mozambique with similar conflicts and offers a new way of looking at political violence, showing that just as violence is learned, it can be unlearned."Article| Carolyn Nordstrom| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "At a time when the international community is again threatening some countries with sanctions, this book comes as a warning. It should be mandatory reading for all those politicians and their foreign-policy advisors who continue to consider sanctions an effective form of policy. The author not only offers us a critical, lucid, and well-informed survey of political developments in Iraq, but also a heart-rending account of the suffering of the Iraqi people. It was they who bore the brunt of the 13-year's sanctions, while the members of Saddam's regime continued to live in luxury and accumulate huge fortunes. H.-C. von Sponeck, the former "UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Iraq," explores the UN's sanction policies against Iraq, their consequences, and the domestic conditions during this period. His extensive research is based on previously unpublished internal UN documents and discussions with UN decision makers (such as General Secretary Kofi Annan), Iraqi officials and politicians (including Saddam Hussein), and ordinary Iraqis. The author's findings question who really benefited from the program, what role the UN Security Council and its various member states played, and whether there were then and are today alternatives to the UN's Iraq policies."Article| Graf Hans-Christof Sponeck| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Decades later, the Vietnam War remains a divisive memory for American society. Partisans on all sides still debate why the war was fought, how it could have been better fought, and whether it could have been won at all. In this major study, a noted expert on the war brings a needed objectivity to these debates by examining dispassionately how and why President Lyndon Johnson and his administration conducted the war as they did. Drawing on a wealth of newly released documents from the LBJ Library, including the Tom Johnson notes from the influential Tuesday Lunch Group, George Herring discusses the concept of limited war and how it affected President Johnson's decision making, Johnson's relations with his military commanders, the administration's pacification program of 1965-1967, the management of public opinion, and the "fighting while negotiating" strategy pursued after the Tet Offensive in 1968. The author's in-depth analysis exposes numerous flaws in Johnson's management of the war. In Herring's view, the Johnson administration lacked any overall strategy for conducting the war. No change in approach was ever discussed, despite popular and even administration dissatisfaction with the progress of the war, and no oversight committee coordinated the activities of the military services and various governmental agencies, which were left to follow their own, often conflicting, agendas."Article| George C. Herring| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Preventing Hell on Earth just became more complicated. For centuries, Tristan has procured sacred, cursed, and one-of-a-kind artifacts in an effort to protect mankind. The relics were kept hidden and safe until the Nazis invaded. Not only did they steal the rare objects from his vault, they kidnapped a fellow Knights Templar. If the enemy discovers what the relics can do and that his friend can read the spell books, the war could take a turn for the worse. Disguised as a British soldier, Tristan joins the Allied Forces to track down his friend and the priceless goods taken from his shop. When soul-sucking spirits attack them, it becomes clear the enemy discovered a way to cast spells. With mankind’s future at stake, Tristan must act quickly before the enemy can raise an army of the dead and spread more evil on Earth."Article| Mary Abshire| Statement ..."

Despite winning a victory at Talavera the previous summer, the British have retreated to Portugal and face the threat of attack by the vastly superior numbers of the French. Support for the war at home is anything but whole-hearted and the Portuguese and Spanish too doubt their allies' will to face the enemy. The British are short of men, equipment and gold, and sailing away fro mLisbon seems the most likely outcome. But not everyone thinks Wellington is facing an impossible task..."--Publisher's description."Article| Peter Youds| Statement ..."
