Book excerpt: Across the brutal killing fields of Afghanistan, an operation is under way to prevent a Taliban massacre. In the middle of the battle, US Navy SEAL Lieutenant Kyle Nolan uncovers a threat that could tear the nation apart. A powerful cleric named Mullah Tarzi has vowed to lead the Taliban in a new war. His plan is to dispatch his fighters and suicide bombers countrywide to reignite the country in a brutal conflict. Only when he has stained the Afghan soil with blood can he feel he has earned the title he craves. The undisputed leader of Afghanistan. The Caliph and Dictator of a ruined and broken land.Nolan's mission commander is a hardass SOCOM officer, Brigadier General Vasquez. His orders are to ignore Tarzi and locate a Taliban warband who are advancing through the region. Find them, and light them up with a Laser Target Designator for a drone strike. Yet something is wrong, the warband appears to be about to switch their allegiance to Kabul. In spite of this, SOCOM is determined to shoot first, even if it means the destruction of a potential ally. Vasquez is about to make a big mistake, and confuse body count with victory. Under fire from all sides, the operation becomes a race against time to prove who is a friend and who is an enemy. Before the Hellfires begin to rain down on friend and foe alike, and the country descends into a civil war that may never end.This is a thrilling story of US Navy SEALs, under pressure from both the enemy and their own side. Seal Team Bravo Black Ops: Spear of ISIS is by the bestselling author of many other Spec Ops stories. These include the popular SEAL Team Bravo titles, the Raider series, as well as Echo Six and the Devil's Guard series.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From the history of state terrorism in Latin America, to state- and group-perpetrated plunder and genocide in Africa, to war and armed conflicts in the Middle East, militarization--the heightened role of organized aggression in society--continues to painfully shape the lives of millions of people around the world. In Security Disarmed, scholars, policy planners, and activists come together to think critically about the human cost of violence and viable alternatives to armed conflict. Arranged in four parts--alternative paradigms of security, cross-national militarization, militarism in the United States, and pedagogical and cultural concerns--the book critically challenges militarization and voices an alternative encompassing vision of human security by analyzing the relationships among gender, race, and militarization. This collection of essays evaluates and resists the worldwide crisis of militarizationùincluding but going beyond American military engagements in the twenty-first century.
Book Synopsis American Security and the Global War on Terror by : Edwin Daniel Jacob
Download or read book American Security and the Global War on Terror written by Edwin Daniel Jacob and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2020-04-08 with total page 128 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book delivers an interpretive framework for making sense of today’s geopolitical landscape and casts new light on the impact ideology and technology have had on American foreign policy and contemporary security practices. Edwin Daniel Jacob argues that America’s security practices in the Global War on Terror have been guided by an anachronistic Cold War logic that has subordinated strategy to tactics. Jacob shows that deep-rooted prejudices and presuppositions regarding American exceptionalism have had a disastrous impact on the policies of the United States, not only in dealing with terrorism, but also in seeking to impose American hegemony in the Middle East. Ineffectual security practices of dubious moral character, from rendition and torture to preemptive strikes and nation building to drones and assassinations, privilege exigency over ethics. Yet the result of this “post-strategic” approach to security, where interchangeable tactics, like these, masquerade as strategy, only increases insecurity. Jacob offers a fresh perspective on American foreign policy that links national security with human security in regional terms. This approach highlights the need for order, predictability, and stability—the cornerstone of political realism. Making use of insights derived from Machiavelli, Hobbes, Marx, Weber, Schmitt, and Morgenthau, this interdisciplinary work provides an overview of American foreign policy in the twenty-first century and speaks to crucial themes in the fields of history, political science, and sociology.

Book excerpt: When insurgents destroy a refinery, the owners, multi-national corporation Afgas, face bankruptcy. CEO Adnan Kovac devises a scheme to bring the dollars flooding back into the country. He needs a war which will plunge the country into chaos and suck in the major world powers. Their reaction is always the same, to send vast sums of foreign aid money. Money he can use to rebuild his refinery, along with the planeloads of troops to protect it. A former Taliban fighter turned mercenary, Akram Khan, will carry out a mass killing at a foreign junior school, trusting that international outrage will do the rest. The plan misfires, and the Taliban treat the murder as a rallying cry for a new jihad. US Navy SEAL Lieutenant Kyle Nolan is on a recon assignment on a helicopter that takes him close to the wrecked refinery. Close enough to hear a call for help from men on the ground. He persuades the pilot to land in the middle of a firefight and rescue a man pinned down by enemy fire. The Coalition has been caught unawares, and armed bands have restarted the killing. The country is ablaze with a new insurgency. Except this time, Afghanistan's nuclear-armed neighbors decide to take part. Tanks mass on the borders, and jets engage in aerial duels. Missiles begin the countdown inside their silos. World War III is imminent, and only the death of the killer, Akram Khan can stop it. It is a job for a small, elite unit. A unit like Bravo. This is a thrilling story of a US Navy SEAL Team, under pressure from enemies on all sides. Seal Team Bravo Black Ops: Afghanistan in Flames is by the bestselling author of many other Spec Ops stories. These include the popular SEAL Team Bravo titles, the Raider series, as well as Echo Six and the Devil's Guard series.

Book Synopsis Counterinsurgency and the Global War on Terror by : Robert M. Cassidy
Download or read book Counterinsurgency and the Global War on Terror written by Robert M. Cassidy and published by Bloomsbury Publishing USA. This book was released on 2006-04-30 with total page 225 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Since September 2001, the United States has waged what the government initially called the global war on terrorism (GWOT). Beginning in late 2005 and early 2006, the term Long War began to appear in U.S. security documents such as the National Security Council's National Strategy for Victory in Iraq and in statements by the U.S. Secretary of Defense and the Chairman of the JCS. The description Long War—unlimited in time and space and continuing for decades—is closer to reality and more useful than GWOT. Colonel Robert Cassidy argues that this protracted struggle is more correctly viewed as a global insurgency and counterinsurgency. Al Qaeda and its affiliates, he maintains, comprise a novel and evolving form of networked insurgents who operate globally, harnessing the advantages of globalization and the information age. They employ terrorism as a tactic, subsuming terror within their overarching aim of undermining the Western-dominated system of states. Placing the war against al Qaeda and its allied groups and organizations in the context of a global insurgency has vital implications for doctrine, interagency coordination, and military cultural change-all reviewed in this important work. Cassidy combines the foremost maxims of the most prominent Western philosopher of war and the most renowned Eastern philosopher of war to arrive at a threefold theme: know the enemy, know yourself, and know what kind of war you are embarking upon. To help readers arrive at that understanding, he first offers a distilled analysis of al Qaeda and its associated networks, with a particular focus on ideology and culture. In subsequent chapters, he elucidates the challenges big powers face when they prosecute counterinsurgencies, using historical examples from Russian, American, British, and French counterinsurgent wars before 2001. The book concludes with recommendations for the integration and command and control of indigenous forces and other agencies.

Book Synopsis Top Ten Global Justice Law Review Articles 2008 by : Amos N. Guiora
Download or read book Top Ten Global Justice Law Review Articles 2008 written by Amos N. Guiora and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2009 with total page 461 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Top Ten Global Justice Law Review Articles 2008 is a thorough and accessible review of the most salient, the most controversial, and the most illuminating essays on security law in the previous calendar year. In this edition, Professor Amos Guiora presents the ten most vital and pertinent law review articles from 2008 written by both scholars who have already gained international prominence as experts in global justice as well as emerging voices in the realm of international criminal law and human rights. These articles deal with issues of terrorism, security law, environmental law, and the preservation of civil liberties in the post-9/11 world. The chosen selections derive not just from the high quality and expertise of the articles' authors, but equally from the wide diversity of legal issues addressed by those authors. Guiora combines the expertise of scholars from both eminent law schools and government agencies to provide a valuable resource for scholars and experts researching this important subject area. This annual review provides researchers with more than just an authoritative discussion on the most prominent global justice debates of the day; it also educates researchers on new issues that have received far too little attention in the press and in academia. These expert scholars and leaders tackle and give voice to issues that range from the psychology of terrorism to the role of oil in the Sudanese genocide to the oppression of women in new Arab democracies to transnational environmental cooperation and beyond. Together, the vast knowledge and independent viewpoints represented by these ten authors make this volume, a valuable resource for individuals new to the realm of global justice and for advanced researchers with a sophisticated understanding of the field. Top Ten Global Justice Law Review Articles 2008 serves as a one-stop guidebook on how both the U.S. and the world generally are currently grappling with fundamental principles of social and political life.

Book Synopsis The Violent American Century by : John W. Dower
Download or read book The Violent American Century written by John W. Dower and published by Haymarket Books. This book was released on 2017-03-20 with total page 141 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: “Tells how America, since the end of World War II, has turned away from its ideals and goodness to become a match setting the world on fire” (Seymour Hersh, investigative journalist and national security correspondent). World War II marked the apogee of industrialized “total war.” Great powers savaged one another. Hostilities engulfed the globe. Mobilization extended to virtually every sector of every nation. Air war, including the terror bombing of civilians, emerged as a central strategy of the victorious Anglo-American powers. The devastation was catastrophic almost everywhere, with the notable exception of the United States, which exited the strife unmatched in power and influence. The death toll of fighting forces plus civilians worldwide was staggering. The Violent American Century addresses the US-led transformations in war conduct and strategizing that followed 1945—beginning with brutal localized hostilities, proxy wars, and the nuclear terror of the Cold War, and ending with the asymmetrical conflicts of the present day. The military playbook now meshes brute force with a focus on non-state terrorism, counterinsurgency, clandestine operations, a vast web of overseas American military bases, and—most touted of all—a revolutionary new era of computerized “precision” warfare. In contrast to World War II, postwar death and destruction has been comparatively small. By any other measure, it has been appalling—and shows no sign of abating. The author, recipient of a Pulitzer Prize and a National Book Award, draws heavily on hard data and internal US planning and pronouncements in this concise analysis of war and terror in our time. In doing so, he places US policy and practice firmly within the broader context of global mayhem, havoc, and slaughter since World War II—always with bottom-line attentiveness to the human costs of this legacy of unceasing violence. “Dower delivers a convincing blow to publisher Henry Luce’s benign ‘American Century’ thesis.” —Publishers Weekly

Book Synopsis Donald Trump's New World Order by : T. Hamid Al-Bayati
Download or read book Donald Trump's New World Order written by T. Hamid Al-Bayati and published by Fairleigh Dickinson University Press. This book was released on 2020-10-06 with total page 353 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Donald Trump's New World Order addresses U.S. foreign policy initiatives during Mr. Trump’s Presidency, appeasing traditional enemies such as Russia and undermining allies such as NATO and the European Union. In the book, Ambassador T. Hamid Al-Bayati outlines, region by region, policy by policy, the administration’s misguided, and sometimes corrupt, initiatives and decisions, which could potentially lead to regional conflict and global war. Highlighted within the text are the administration’s relationships and interactions with Russia, China, North Korea, and the Middle East, as well as within the United States. The author’s critical review of Trump’s foreign policy includes the impact of trade wars, military escalation, and changing global relationships, Ambassador Al-Bayati paints a stark picture of the present standing of the U.S. and a dark future that looms on the horizon. Many experts agree that Trump’s foreign policy lacks coordination, consistency, and organization. Trump often contradicts himself and his supporting staff. Concerned Americans and U.S. allies struggle to find coherence in the Trump administration’s foreign policy. It zigs and zags, with senior administration officials saying one thing and President Trump contradicting them without warning the next day. It punishes U.S. allies and coddles U.S. adversaries; it privileges demagogy over democracy. Mr. Trump’s approach appears impulsive, improvisational and inchoate—devoid of clear purpose, values or even ideology. Ambassador Al-Bayati leaves nothing unexplored as he strives to organize and explain the current and future implications of Mr. Trump’s presidency and policy.
Book Synopsis Filipinx American Studies by : Rick Bonus
Download or read book Filipinx American Studies written by Rick Bonus and published by Fordham Univ Press. This book was released on 2022-06-07 with total page 330 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This volume spotlights the unique suitability and situatedness of Filipinx American studies both as a site for reckoning with the work of historicizing U.S. empire in all of its entanglements, as well as a location for reclaiming and theorizing the interlocking histories and contemporary trajectories of global capitalism, racism, sexism, and heteronormativity. It encompasses an interrogation of the foundational status of empire in the interdiscipline; modes of labor analysis and other forms of knowledge production; meaning-making in relation to language, identities, time, and space; the critical contours of Filipinx American schooling and political activism; the indispensability of relational thinking in Filipinx American studies; and the disruptive possibilities of Filipinx American formations. A catalogue of key resources and a selected list of scholarship are also provided. Filipinx American Studies constitutes a coming-to-terms with not only the potentials and possibilities but also the disavowals, silences, and omissions that mark Filipinx American studies. It provides a reflective and critical space for thinking through the ways Filipinx American studies is uniquely and especially suited to the interrogation of the ongoing legacies of U.S. imperialism and the urgencies of the current period.
