The Name Of War

by Jill Lepore, The Name Of War Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Name Of War book, Winner of the Bancroft Prize King Philip's War, the excruciating racial war—colonists against Indians—that erupted in New England in 1675, was, in proportion to population, the bloodiest in American history. Some even argued that the massacres and outrages on both sides were too horrific to "deserve the name of a war." The war's brutality compelled the colonists to defend themselves against accusations that they had become savages. But Jill Lepore makes clear that it was after the war—and because of it—that the boundaries between cultures, hitherto blurred, turned into rigid ones. King Philip's War became one of the most written-about wars in our history, and Lepore argues that the words strengthened and hardened feelings that, in turn, strengthened and hardened the enmity between Indians and Anglos. Telling the story of what may have been the bitterest of American conflicts, and its reverberations over the centuries, Lepore has enabled us to see how the ways in which we remember past events are as important in their effect on our history as were the events themselves. Winner of the the 1998 Ralph Waldo Emerson Award of the Phi Beta Kappa Society

A Fatal Addiction

by Thomas Block, A Fatal Addiction Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download A Fatal Addiction book, America, one of the most religious countries in the world, is also the most violent. Do God and war define the American spirit as much as apple pie and baseball? This unsettling book illustrates how bellicose, war-like language is used to explain the spiritual quest. It explores the violence of God tradition as it exists in all religions (including Buddhism), and then examines how this dynamic is flipped, with political leaders using spiritual and religious language to sell war to the general public. Although God and religion have often been used to sell war in the United States, this has been especially true since 9/11. After surveying the relationship of war and the spiritual quest in the major world religions, this study concludes with an overview of how that dynamic has affected the contemporary American public discourse on war. Does this intermingling of war and spirituality prepare the population for the coming of war? The institutional blending of the sacred and human aggression appear to be fundamental to human society. The second section of the book concentrates on the political language and speeches of American politicians since 2002, following the run-up to the Iraq war and its continuation over the past decade, showing how this mystical/war conflation permeates American society.

In The Name Of Democracy

by Jeremy Brecher, In The Name Of Democracy Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download In The Name Of Democracy book, A riveting documentary anthology that examines a deeply disturbing question: Is the United States guilty of war crimes in Iraq? Until recently, the possibility that the United States was responsible for war crimes seemed unthinkable to most Americans. But as previously suppressed information has started to emerge—photographs from Abu Ghraib; accounts of U.S. attacks on Iraqi hospitals, mosques, and residential neighborhoods; secret government reports defending unilateral aggression—Americans have begun an agonizing reappraisal of the Iraq war and the way in which their government has conducted it. Drawing on a wide range of documents—from the protocols of the Geneva Convention to FBI e-mails about prisoners held in Guantánamo Bay to executive-branch papers justifying the circumvention of international law—In the Name of Democracy examines the legality of the Iraq war and the occupation that followed. Included in this powerful investigation are eyewitness accounts, victim testimonials, statements by soldiers turned resisters and whistle-blowers, interviews with intelligence insiders, and contributions by Mark Danner and Seymour Hersh. The result is a controversial, chilling anthology that explores the culpability of officials as well as the responsibilities of ordinary citizens, and for the first time squarely confronts the matter of American impunity.

Ich bin ein guter Hund.« Und das ist auch alles, was Rex, eine sogenannte technisch optimierte Bioform, in seinem Leben möchte – ein guter Hund sein und seinem Herrn gehorchen.

Als sein Herr eines Tages vors Kriegsgericht gestellt wird, kommen Rex jedoch Zweifel. Was soll er tun, wenn er keinen Herrn mehr hat, der ihm befiehlt? War es möglicherweise falsch, blind zu gehorchen? Und haben er und die anderen Bioformen überhaupt ein Anrecht auf Freiheit und ein eigenes Leben?

Jihad Joe

by J. M. Berger, Jihad Joe Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Jihad Joe book, They are Americans, and they are mujahideen. Hundreds of men from every imaginable background have walked away from the traditional American dream to volunteer for battle in the name of Islam. Some have taken part in foreign wars that aligned with U.S. interests, while others have carried out violence against Westerners abroad, fought against the U.S. military, and even plotted terrorist attacks on American soil. This story plays out over decades and continents: from the Americans who took part in the siege of Mecca in 1979 through conflicts in Lebanon, Afghanistan, and Bosnia, and continuing today in Afghanistan and Somalia. Investigative journalist J. M. Berger profiles numerous fighters, including some who joined al Qaeda and others who chose a different path. In these pages he portrays, among others, Abdullah Rashid, who fought the Soviets in Afghanistan; Mohammed Loay Bayazid, who was present at the founding of al Qaeda; Ismail Royer, who fought in Bosnia and Kashmir, then returned to run training camps in the United States; Adam Gadahn, a Jewish Californian who is now al Qaeda's chief spokesman; and Anwar Awlaki, the Yemeni-American imam with links to 9/11 who is now considered one of the biggest threats to America's security.

Download Lichtgef Hrten book, Sara fühlt sich so seltsam wie nie zuvor, nachdem sie mit dem geheimnisvollen König Kimaldor in der Dunkelheit zusammengestoßen ist. Ein König, der in der heutigen Zeit noch von einem Ritterorden beschützt wird? Und was war das für ein gleißend helles Licht? Halluzinationen? Vielleicht ist es doch besser, sich von den beiden Rittern zu einem Arzt bringen zu lassen. Der junge Knappe Marc ist sehr freundlich zu Sara. Doch Heermeister Nimroel lässt ihr das Blut in den Adern gefrieren. Feindselig blickt der blonde Ritter sie mit seinen eisblauen Augen an. Fast so, als würde er sie persönlich hassen. Im Schloss angekommen fühlt sich Sara zu König Kimaldor stark hingezogen, obwohl sie doch eigentlich ihren Mann Eric liebt. Irgendetwas geht hier nicht mit rechten Dingen zu. Ist der mysteriöse König Kimaldor überhaupt ein normaler Mensch? Und welches Geheimnis verbirgt Heermeister Nimroel, der ohne ein Wort in den Wald verschwunden ist? Als Sara dann auch in ihrem Zuhause von unheilvollen Visionen geplagt wird, ist ihr eines völlig klar: Ihr Leben wird nach dieser Zusammenkunft niemals mehr so sein, wie es war ...
