188 indexed pages. Why have states returned to the United Nations with unprecedented enthusiasm since 1987? What is its role in 'peacemaking'? Does it have any relevance to what is probably still the most dangerous and intractable of all 'regional conflicts', that between the Arabs and the Israelis? By examining changes at UN headquarters (not least the institutionalization of 'secret diplomacy' in the Security Council) as well as the recent history of UN diplomacy, these are the questions which this book confronts. Name in the first page.

Hindu Nationalism: Origins, Ideologies and Modern Myths, Bhatt, Chetan
3 Bhatt, Chetan Hindu Nationalism: Origins, Ideologies and Modern Myths
United Kingdom Berg Pub 2001 1859733484 / 9781859733486 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
232 indexed pages. The rise of authoritarian Hindu mass movements and political formations in India since the early 1980s raises fundamental questions about the resurgence of chauvinistic ethnic, religious and nationalist movements in the late modern period. This book examines the history and ideologies of Hindu nationalism and Hindutva from the end of the last century to the present, and critically evaluates the social and political philosophies and writings of its main thinkers. Hindu nationalism is based on the claim that it is an indigenous product of the primordial and authentic ethnic and religious traditions of India. The book argues instead that these claims are based on relatively recent ideas, frequently related to western influences during the colonial period. These influences include eighteenth and nineteenth century European Romantic and Enlightenment rationalist ideas preoccupied with archaic primordialism, evolution, organicism, vitalism and race. As well as considering the ideological impact of National Socialism and Fascism on Hindu nationalism in the 1930s, the book also looks at how Aryanism continues to be promoted in unexpected forms in contemporary India. Using a wide range of historical and contemporary sources, the author considers the consequences of Hindu nationalist resurgence in the light of contemporary debates about minorities, secular citizenship, ethics and modernity.

The Negro Revolution In America: What Negroes Want; Why and How They are Fighting; Whom They Support; What Whites Think of Them and Their Demands, Brink, William; Harris, Louis
4 Brink, William; Harris, Louis The Negro Revolution In America: What Negroes Want; Why and How They are Fighting; Whom They Support; What Whites Think of Them and Their Demands
USA Simon & Schuster 1964 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Good 12mo 
251 pages. Here is an unprecedented book - the anatomy of a social revolution in full stride. It is based on the survey of Negro opinion made by Newsweek magazine in 1963, with additional material from a later poll of white attitudes toward Negroes. A nationwide sampling of Negroes across the country and on all social levels, lus 100 Negro leaders, were asked over 250 questions by interviewers who were, in almost all cases, themselves Negroes. From the answers emerges the first realistic, objective picture of: What it's like to be a Negro; What has triggered the present revolt against discrimination; How many Negroes are behind the revolt; Which leaders they support; Which methods they favor to get equal rights; How far they will go to achieve them; What their real feelings are toward whites; What their role will be in the 1964 election; What Negroes want most and when they expect to get it. Some of the findings were summarized in Newsweek, but much remarkable material could not be included for lack of space. All of it has now been incorporated, expanded and updated in this book. A special chapter presents white attitudes toward Negroes and their demands. Altogether, the book forms a unique and basic document of our times, a report that no future studies in the area of race relations can ignore. The authors are William Brink, Newsweek staff member who has covered many important civil rights stories in recent years, and Louis Harris, the political analyst and writer whose research organization conducted the original surveys.

171 pages. This monograph raises issues not usually discussed in the debate about the Australian-American alliance: the nature of political support of the alliance; the implications of the alliance for national security policy; the effects of the alliance on the Australian Defence Force (ADF); and its effects on national freedom of action. The author examines the costs and benefits of the alliance and argues that its ending is both desirabie and inevitable, as Australian national security policy evolves through self-reliance towards independence.

Who Will Feed China? Wake-Up Call for a Small Planet (The - Worldwatch Environmental Alert Series), Brown, Lester R.
6 Brown, Lester R. Who Will Feed China? Wake-Up Call for a Small Planet (The - Worldwatch Environmental Alert Series)
U.S.A. W. W. Norton & Company 1995 039331409X / 9780393314090 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
165 indexed pages. To feed its 1.2 billion people, China may soon have to import so much grain that this action could trigger unprecedented rises in world food prices. In Who Will Feed China: Wake-up Call for a Small Planet, Lester Brown shows that even as water becomes more scarce in a land where 80 percent of the grain crop is irrigated, as per-acre yield gains are erased by the loss of cropland to industrialization, and as food production stagnates, China still increases its population by the equivalent of a new Beijing each year. When Japan, a nation of just 125 million, began to import food, world grain markets rejoiced. But when China, a market ten times bigger, starts importing, there may not be enough grain in the world to meet that need - and food prices will rise steeply for everyone. Analysts foresaw that the recent four-year doubling of income for China's 1.2 billion consumers would increase food demand, especially for meat, eggs, and beer. But these analysts assumed that food production would rise to meet those demands. Brown shows that cropland losses are heavy in countries that are densely populated before industrialization, and that these countries quickly become net grain importers. We can see that process now in newspaper accounts from China as the government struggles with this problem. In an integrated world economy, China’s rising food prices will become the world’s rising food prices. China’s land scarcity will become everyone’s land scarcity. And water scarcity in China will affect the entire world. China’s dependence on massive imports, like the collapse of the world’s fisheries, will be a wake-up call that we are colliding with the earth’s capacity to feed us. It could well lead us to redefine national security away from military preparedness and toward maintaining adequate food supplies. There is a name in the first page.

137 pagec including endnotes and bibliography. A captivating account that narrates, month by month, the events of 1917. This is popular Catholic history at its finest. The drama of the Great War and the Russian Revolution are juxtaposed with the spiritual dimension of the Age: the diabolism of Rasputin, the Apparition of the Virgin at Fatima, the malignancy of Lenin, the saintly courage of (the now blessed) Charles of Austria. Few standard histories have ever given such a high degree of consideration to the supernatural and the Christian interpretation of history as "1917" does.

211 indexed pages. In this new collection of conversations, conducted from 2010 to 2012, Noam Chomsky explores the most immediate and urgent concerns: the future of democracy in the Arab world, the implications of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the 'class war' fought by US business interests against working people and the poor, the breakdown of mainstream political institutions and the rise of the far right. As always, Chomsky presents his ideas vividly and accessibly, with uncompromising principle and clarifying insight. The latest volume from a long-established, trusted partnership, this collection shows once again that no interlocutor engages with Chomsky more effectively than David Barsamian. These interviews will inspire a new generation of readers, as well as longtime Chomsky fans eager for his latest thinking on the many crises we now confront, both at home and abroad. They confirm that Chomsky is an unparalleled resource for anyone seeking to understand our world today.

xviii + 84 pages including b/w illustrations and bibliography. The immersion of foreign terrorists over the last decade in the long-running Moro Islamic insurgency in Mindanao has transformed this local insurgency into the region's most important front in the war on terror.

It suggests ways that the greater foreign interest engendered by this transformation can help weed out the terrorists and support a political settlement to the insurgency.

Dr Kit Collier is a visiting fellow in the Department of Political and Social Change, Australian National University and a consultant to numerous Australian and international public and private agencies.

U.S.A. Routledge 2006 0415429846 / 9780415429849 Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
193 indexed pages. This book explains the exceptional nature of the East Timor Intervention of 1999, and deals with the background to the trusteeship role of the UN in building the new polity. All of these developments had an important impact on regional order, not least testing the ASEAN norm of 'non-interference'. Australian complicity in the Indonesian occupation of East Timor was a major factor in the persistence of Indonesian rule in the territory which was maintained for twenty-five years despite international censure and which required an unremitting campaign against the independence movement. This work reviews the reasons for that history of complicity, and explains the extraordinary change of policy that led ultimately to the occupation of the territory by the Australian-led INTERFET coalition. Contents: 1. East Timor and Australia: The 25-year policy legacy 2. Australian Relations with Indonesia and the East Timor Issue 3. The Failure of Indonesian Policy 4. The East Timor Intervention, Humanitarian Norms and Regional Order 5. Australia's East Timor Commitment: Causes and consequences 6. Australia's East Timor: The official version and its critique 7. Outcomes: Peacekeeping lessons, security dilemmas, bi-lateral tensions 8. Independent Timor-Leste in a Regional and Global Context. James Cotton is a highly respected Australian academic who has written extensively about Asian politics and political thought.

On the struggle for democracy in Vietnam, Dao, Tang Duc

Australia Butterfly Books 1994 0947333703 / 9780947333706 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 12mo 
xi + 244 indexed pages icluding bibliography. This title is the first book in the English language which explains the cultural, religious and political factors affecting Vietnam today. The author is a practising lawyer in Sydney. His book is the result of painstaking research. It is a revealing and clearly written thesis on the problems and cultural influences that have shaped this troubled nation for centuries. The successive effects of many centuries of Chinese domination, French colonisation, and most recently the disastrous Vietnam war which shook the world and humbled America - all these have led to the Vietnam of today, run by a Communist government of the kind that has been discredited and all but disappeared elsewhere in the world. The author, writing from his own Vietnamese cultural and family background, has examined these matters with a clarity that allows us to see the complex issues without ideological or sympathy-seeking overtones. This book is recommended reading for expatriate Vietnamese, as well as Western readers who are concerned about the South-East Asian question and bewildered by its complexity. There are small creases in the cover.

U. K. Macmillan 1970 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 12mo 
155 indexed pages. The emergence of the super-powers has involved at least three hundred years of comparable development. and the historical examination of this process can make a contribution to their mutual understanding and future progress.

For example, Chapter 3, entitled Two Great Nations 1815-1850, looks at the way In which America and Russia participated in the wave of nationalism which followed the Napoleonic period, and Chapter 7, From World Power into Space 1941-1969, describes the culminating effects of the emergence of the super-powers and the extension of their great rivalry throughout the world and beyond.
