♥ Book Title : Vice-Consul Panama
☯ Full Synopsis : "It's 1972, and rookie diplomat Rob Kingman's first major assignment, to find a missing school teacher, soon turns into a match of wits with Colonel Manuel Noriega, head of Panamanian security. Corruption, dictatorship, murder and the birth of the drug trade are rife. The larger Cold War conflict is the framework for this story, with references to the Cuban Missile Crisis, a UN Security Council meeting to be held in Panama to deal with sovereignty over the Panama Canal, and the US struggle to maintain its hold over the main security bulwark in the region. Our hero on the ground is carrying out his duty to protect a citizen who falls into harm's way, through all of the surprising twists and turns that follow in a country where the rule of law, democratic values, equality and human rights are not entrenched and guiding concepts. Rob often faces situations where his head tells him one thing and his heart leads him to do another in his stormy relationship with the power behind the dictatorship, Noriega, who himself knows both worlds. Passion, trust, and friendship play through betrayal, intrigue and suspense leading to a surprise conclusion in the Montreal underworld and a thrilling end on the Caribbean Island of Bequia."Article| Randolf Harrold| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : American Consuls in the Holy Land, 1832-1914
☯ Full Synopsis : "This volume provides new insights into the role of U.S. consuls in the Ottoman Middle East in the special context of the Holy Land. The motivations and functioning of the American consuls in Jerusalem, and of the consular agents in Jaffa and Haifa, are analyzed as part of the US diplomatic and consular activity throughout the world, and of Western involvement in the Ottoman Empire and in Palestine during the century preceding World War I. The processes of cultural, demographic, economic, environmental, and settlement change and the contribution of the US consuls and American settlers to development of and modernization of Palestine are discussed. Based on primary archival sources such facets as the role of consuls regarding the use of extraterritorial privileges, Western religious and cultural penetration, control of land and land purchase, non-Muslim settlement, judicial systems, and technological innovations are considered from American, Ottoman, and local viewpoints."Article| Ruth Kark| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Slavery and Emancipation in Islamic East Africa
☯ Full Synopsis : "Examining the process of abolition on the island of Pemba off the East African coast in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, this book demonstrates the links between emancipation and the redefinition of honour among all classes of people on the island. By examining the social vulnerability of ex-slaves and the former slave-owning elite caused by the abolition order of 1897, this study argues that moments of resistance on Pemba reflected an effort to mitigate vulnerability rather than resist the hegemonic power of elites or the colonial state. As the meaning of the Swahili word heshima shifted from honour to respectability, individuals' reputations came under scrutiny and the Islamic kadhi and colonial courts became an integral location for interrogating reputations in the community. This study illustrates the ways in which former slaves used piety, reputation, gossip, education, kinship and witchcraft to negotiate the gap between emancipation and local notions of belonging."Article| Elisabeth McMahon| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : The Anglo-Portuguese Alliance and the English Merchants in Portugal 1654–1810
☯ Full Synopsis : "The alliance made between Cromwell and John IV in 1654, cemented by the Articles of Marriage between Charles II and Catherine of Braganza in 1661 lasted for 156 years. Together, they provided a guarantee of Portugal’s independence and formed a framework for an expansion of trade between England, Portugal and its overseas possessions. The Inquisition had ruined the ’New Christians’ (Sephardic Jews) who had been Portugal’s principal middlemen, enabling the English merchants to play a dominant role in that expansion once they had overcome their French and Dutch rivals. They held that position until Pombal succeeded by 1770 in breaking the hold which foreigners had established over Portuguese commerce. This book is the result of many years of research into Portuguese and British archival sources. It interweaves politics, economics, religion and commerce to portray what life was like for English merchants in Portugal in the period."Article| L.M.E. Shaw| Statement ..."
