Exiled Emissary: George H. Earle, III – Soldier, Sailor, Diplomat, Governor, Spy

Author: 

Farrell, Christopher J., Director of Investigations and Research, Judicial Watch, Distinguished Senior Fellow, Gatestone Institute

Exiled Emissary is a biography of the colorful life of George H. Earle, III – a Main Line Philadelphia millionaire, war hero awarded the Navy Cross, Pennsylvania Governor, Ambassador to Austria and Bulgaria, friend and supporter of Franklin Roosevelt, humanitarian, playboy, and spy. Rich in Casablanca-style espionage and intrigue, Farrell’s deeply personal study presents FDR and his White House in a new light, especially when they learned in 1943 that high-ranking German officials approached Earle in Istanbul to convey their plot to kidnap Hitler and seek an armistice.

Russia’s Military Interventions in Georgia and Ukraine: Interests, Motives, and Decision-Making

Author: 

Ismayilov, Elnur, Ph.D., University of Münster

In Russia’s Military Interventions, Elnur Ismayilov analyzes Russia’s recent military interventions in Georgia and Ukraine by assessing the driving factors – the interests fueling Russian involvement and the decisions that fostered the resulting wars. Ismayilov covers the creation and transformation behind Russia’s post-Soviet perspectives on Ukraine and Georgia and explores the panorama of post-Soviet Russia’s foreign policy from the 1990s up to the turbulent present, in which Ukraine and Georgia’s pro-Western orientations have remained a core concern of the Kremlin.

Oilfields and Airpower in African Conflict: The Case of Biafra

Author: 

Ignatus, Onianwa Oluchukwu, Ph.D., Department of History, University of Ibadan (Nigeria)

Credentials: 

Author of Britain’s Injurious Peace Games in the Nigerian Civil War, 1967-1970, Once Upon a Time in Biafra: Memories, Foreign Visitations, and Life Experiences in the Nigerian Civil War, 1967-1970, and British Women and the Nigerian Civil War

In this intrepid study, noted Nigerian historian Onianwa Oluchukwu Ignatus investigates the air war component of the Nigerian-Biafran War, a crucial postcolonial conflict in Africa. It focuses on the Biafra’s air operations against oil installations and facilities owned by multinational oil companies in Nigeria. In addition to exploring global airpower historiography, this study explores the tactical aspects of how the renewed air war changed the military equation of the conflict when both sides were at loggerheads in peace settlement and relief arrangements.

Eco-Literature: Contemporary Discourses

Author: 

D'Cunha, Sr. Candy, Associate Professor of English, Andhra Loyola Institute of Engineering and Technology (India)

Credentials: 

Author of Keys of Life and Ecosophical Vision and Self-Realization in Margaret Atwood’s Prose

Awareness of eco-literature has recalled the central ideology of environmentalism - “to think globally and act locally.” As this volume shows, various tags of contemporary discourse have emerged, including transnational, cosmopolitan, hybridity, diaspora, and generally cultural. These concerns highlight such global environmental problems as biodiversity, climate change, and developing new forms of interconnectedness with local and regional communities. In this context, contemporary discourse becomes of immediate concern in understanding the environmental crisis.

Author: 

Gassanly, Murad PhD, Cardiff University

Credentials: 

City Councillor, City of Westminster (London)

A History of International Oil Politics is both an argument for multi-theoretical pluralism and a proposal for a theory-synergetic approach in international relations. Murad Gassanly, a distinguished international relations scholar and rising British politician, explores how international relations paradigms could be utilized in approaching the vital field of international oil politics, specifically historical issues of international energy politics and comparative case studies of energy transmission networks – the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan Pipeline and the Southern Gas Corridor.

Begum Khaleda Zia: Portrait of a People’s Leader

Author: 

Khan, Q. M. Jalal, Professor of English (ret.) and Political Writer; K. M. A. Malik, Professor of Chemistry (ret.) and Political Writer

This book is about Bangladesh’s first female prime minister, Begum Khaleda Zia, who served three terms in office and achieved enormous popularity. Her charisma inexorably emanates from her sense of dignity, integrity, uncompromising principles, and commitment to freedom, independence, and sovereignty of Bangladesh--a new and small country bordering the larger India, which is always up to its hegemonic designs. Begum Zia (and her husband, President Ziaur Rahman) were able to keep foreign conspiracies at bay.

Eco-Aesthetics: Transnational Perspectives

D'Cunha, Sr. Candy, Ken Saldanha, Editors

Credentials: 

Associate Professor of English, Andhra Loyola Institute of Engineering and Technology (India)
Author of Keys of Life and Ecosophical Vision and Self-Realization in Margaret Atwood’s Prose

Eco-criticism, as explored in this volume edited by Sr. Candy D’Cunha, and co-edited by Ken Saldanha, begins with the concept of imagination, in other words, eco-aesthetics through which the power of words, stories, images, essence, and meaning are directly applied to environmental problems that afflict planet earth today. On the other hand, eco-criticism also concurs with the other branches of environmental humanities in the realm of history, ethics, anthropology, religious studies, and humanistic geography, among others.

Ronald Reagan: Revolution Betrayed (St. James’s Studies in World Affairs)

Author: 

Thornton, Richard C.

Credentials: 

Professor of History and International Affairs, George Washington University

The point of departure for distinguished historian Richard C. Thornton’s insightful new assessment of the Reagan administration is Reagan’s overwhelming re-election in 1984. His first-term policies had placed the United States in the ascendancy over the Soviet Union, and he sought to capitalize on that success by bringing the Cold War to an end on favorable terms. The Soviet Union, on the other hand, proved increasingly unable to bear the costs of supporting its empire and client state and adopted a strategy of détente.

Ronald Reagan: Revolution Ascendant (St. James’s Studies in World Affairs)

Author: 

Thornton, Richard C.

Credentials: 

Professor of History and International Affairs, George Washington University

When Ronald Reagan was elected president in 1980, he found America’s economy, defense, and global position weakened to the point of collapse. The previous seven years of attempted détente with the Soviet Union had resulted in the worst foreign policy failures in American history. As the distinguished diplomatic historian Richard C. Thornton shows in this thorough reassessment of Reagan’s presidency, written for the 40th anniversary of his election, the new president was determined to rebuild American economic and military power and to restore the Western Alliance.

The Demise of Arms Control: Non-Compliance and the New World Order (St. James’s Studies in World Affairs)

Author: 

Ofosu, Victor, MA, Kings College, London, journalist and political campaigner

The failure of six countries to reach an agreement in the Six-Party Talks on Korea has shown the futility of negotiations to denuclearize North Korea. As Victor Ofosu shows in this timely new study, diplomacy failed because nuclear reversal is not in Pyongyang security, regional, or economic interests. This analysis examines factors which may encourage North Korea and other nuclear powers to reverse their posture, including considerations of constraint surrounding the INF treaty between the United States and Russia.
