This new work defines national security strategy, its objectives, the problems it confronts, and the influences that constrain and facilitate its development and implementation in a post-Cold War, post-9/11 environment. The authors note that making and implementing national strategy centers on risk management and present a model for assessing strategic risks and the process for allocating limited resources to reduce them. The major threats facing the United States now come from its unique status as "the sole remaining superpower" against which no nation-state or other entity can hope to compete through conventional means. The alternative is what is now called asymmetrical or fourth generation warfare. Drew and Snow discuss all these factors in detail and bring them together by examining the continuing problems of making strategy in a changed and changing world. Originally published in 2006.

This is the story of Lilith, born into slavery on a Jamaican sugar plantation at the end of the eighteenth century. Even at her birth, the Night Women—a clandestine council of fierce slaves plotting an island-wide revolt—recognize a dark force in her that they treat with both reverence and fear. But as Lilith comes of age and begins to understand her own feelings and identity, she dares to push at the edges of what is imaginable for the life of a slave woman. And as rebellions simmer and unspoken jealousies intensify, Lilith’s powers and sense of purpose threaten not just her own destiny, but the destinies of all the slave women in Jamaica.

VEĆ PRVA NA HRVATSKI PREVEDENA ZBIRKA PRIČA MAKEDONSKE SPISATELJICE RUMENE BUŽAROVSKE, OSMICA, U HIPU JE OD NJE STVORILA REGIONALNU ZVIJEZDU, A NIJE TEŠKO PRETPOSTAVITI DA JE ČEKA I UGODNA, JOŠ ŠIRA, BAREM EUROPSKA, RECEPCIJA. Zbirka od jedanaest priča Moj muž za sada je vrhunac njezina pisanja. Sve priče ispripovijedale su vrlo različite žene iz prvog lica, ali te se priče tiču koliko njih toliko i njihove okoline, odnosa s muževima (jer jedino zajedničko im je to što su sve u brakovima, a jedna je već i sahranila svog muža), djecom, roditeljima, kolegama i prijateljima. Zbog toga se radi o galeriji iznimno upečatljivih i precizno profiliranih likova i majstorskim kondenziranim d(r)amama, o psihološkim ali i socijalnim, s posebnom osjetljivošću na patrijarhat, portretima. Jer, govoreći o svojim brakovima i muževima – ginekolozima, pjesnicima, veleposlanicima, policajcima – govori se o profesijama i njihovim statusima, o odnosima moći – većina ženskih likova ipak je zasjenjena i emotivno i socijalno zapuštena zbog prestiža njihovih muževa i njihovih profesija. Rumena Bužarovska bez pardona zadire i u dijelom tabuizirane teme: piše o majkama koje, eto, ne vole svoju djecu, koje su joj, samo da ne bude osude okoline, u stanju i iz nehata naštetiti. Zapravo, autorica prije istražuje tamno i nestabilno u likovima, volju za moći i priznanjem, kompromise koji život oduzimaju, iracionalizam ljubavi, čovjeka kao skup oprečnosti koje rađaju unutarnju napetost. Sve je to ispisano u najboljem duhu američke kratkopričaške ekonomije, najzahtjevnijim načinom, jezikom običnih ljudi, mimo svake patetike, razorno i, valja priznati – istinito, jer je mjera istine u umjetnosti uvjerljivost koja se osjeća potkožno, tijelom.

Rwanda and Bosnia both experienced mass violence in the early 1990s. Less than ten years later, Rwandans surprisingly elected the world's highest level of women to parliament. In Bosnia, women launched thousands of community organizations that became spaces for informal political participation. The political mobilization of women in both countries complicates the popular image of women as merely the victims and spoils of war. Through a close examination of these cases, Marie E. Berry unpacks the puzzling relationship between war and women's political mobilization. Drawing from over 260 interviews with women in both countries, she argues that war can reconfigure gendered power relations by precipitating demographic, economic, and cultural shifts. In the aftermath, however, many of the gains women made were set back. This book offers an entirely new view of women and war and includes concrete suggestions for policy makers, development organizations, and activists supporting women's rights.

The book is a unique stocktaking, by a leading international group of theologians, social scientists and other scholars, on issues facing public theology at the beginning of the 21st century. It combines retrospect and prospect, in that it reflects on the issues and approaches that have characterized public theology in the 20th century, especially its latter half, and attempts to anticipate those which will or should come to the fore in the 21st century, seeking to discern continuities and changes. Three opening chapters deal with the overall theme of public or political theology, with Jurgen Moltmann giving a critical historical account from the Second World War onwards, Raymond Plant relating such theology to cultural pluralism, and Andrew Morton illustrating it from the work of Duncan Forrester. These are followed by pairs of contributions relating public theology to more specific topicsr: History; Technology and Creation; Globalization; Spirituality; Punishment and Forgiveness; Medical Ethics; Tolerance and Human Rights; Social Exclusion and Equality.

An Academy Award-nominated actor and a renowned human rights activist team up to change the tragic course of history in the Sudan--with readers' help. While Don Cheadle was filming Hotel Rwanda, a new crisis had already erupted in Darfur, in nearby Sudan. In September 2004, then-Secretary of State Colin Powell termed the atrocities being committed there "genocide"--and yet two years later things have only gotten worse. 3.5 million Sudanese are going hungry, 2.5 million have been displaced by violence, and 400,000 have died in Darfur to date. Both shocked and energized by this ongoing tragedy, Cheadle teamed up with leading activist John Prendergast to focus the world's attention. Not on Our Watch, their empowering book, offers six strategies readers themselves can implement: Raise Awareness, Raise Funds, Write a Letter, Call for Divestment, Start an Organization, and Lobby the Government. Each of these small actions can make a huge difference in the fate of a nation, and a people--not only in Darfur, but in other crisis zones such as Somalia, Congo, and northern Uganda.

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license. This book provides a profound insight into post-war Mostar, and the memories of three generations of this Bosnian-Herzegovinian city. Drawing on several years of ethnographic fieldwork, it offers a vivid account of how personal and collective memories are utterly intertwined, and how memories across the generations are reimagined and ‘rewritten’ following great socio-political change. Focusing on both Bosniak-dominated East Mostar and Croat-dominated West Mostar, it demonstrates that, even in this ethno-nationally divided city with its two divergent national historiographies, generation-specific experiences are crucial in how people ascribe meaning to past events. It argues that the dramatic and often brutal transformations that Bosnia and Herzegovina has witnessed have led to alterations in memory politics, not to mention disparities in the life situations faced by the different generations in present-day post-war Mostar. This in turn has created variations in memories along generational lines, which affect how individuals narrate and position themselves in relation to the country's history. This detailed and engaging work will appeal to students and scholars of anthropology, sociology, political science, history and oral history, particularly those with an interest in memory, post-socialist Europe and conflict studies.
