New World Order? No Way Out?: How the One-Percenters did it!

by Paul Casselle

What the heck is going on in the world?

The 9/11 attack, continuous wars in the Middle-East & major terrorist incidents every few weeks.

What the heck is going on! - Are you looking for an answer?

Many of us are becoming aware of a growing global problem with national economies and terrorism, but some believe we are being led down this path by powerful people determined to destroy our free society in favour of their own greed. So, is this conspiracy nonsense?

I became so confused and worried about the global decline I saw around me that I decided to start researching for myself. Over the last four years I have discovered many things that left me speechless. I want everyone to explore the facts and make their own informed choices. Therefo...

by Anna Erelle

FREE SAMPLER FROM THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLERWhen Anna Erelle, a young journalist, goes undercover online to discover how today’s most ruthless terrorists use social media to recruit disaffected young women like the girls from Bethnal Green, her investigation spins into a harrowing nightmare.In this extract, Erelle creates ‘Mélodie’ – a twenty-year-old convert to Islam on Facebook – who is immediately Skyped by a man named Bilel, in Syria.

Since the 2001 overthrow of the Taliban government in Afghanistan, violence against women has emerged as the single most important issue for Afghan gender politics.

Showing why Afghan activists often chose to use the leverage of Western powers instead of entering into either protracted negotiations with powerful...

Bordieuan Field Theory as an Instrument for Military Operational Analysis (New Security Challenges)

by Håkan Gunneriusson

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book uses Pierre Bourdieu’s field theory as a lens through which to examine military operations. Novel in its approach, this innovative text provides a better, more nuanced understanding of the modern ‘battlespace’, particularly in instances of prolonged low-intensity conflict. Formed in two parts, this book primarily explores the scope of Bourdien theory before secondly providing a detailed case study of the Yugoslavian succession war of 1990-1992. Gunneriusson suggests that although theories do not necessarily provide answers, they do help us ask better questions. This volume suggests news lines of interdisciplinary investigation that will be of interest to members of armed forces, practitioners from NGOs, and policymakers....

Mirage of Police Reform: Procedural Justice and Police Legitimacy

by Worden, Robert E., Prof. and Sarah J. McLean

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s Open Access publishing program. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more. In the United States, the exercise of police authority—and the public’s trust that police authority is used properly—is a recurring concern. Contemporary prescriptions for police reform hold that the public would better trust the police and feel a greater obligation to comply and cooperate if police-citizen interactions were marked by higher levels of procedural justice by police.   In this book, Robert E. Worden and Sarah J. McLean argue that the procedural justice model of reform is a mirage. From a distance, procedural justice seemingly offers a relief from strained police-community relations. But a closer lo...

Protect, Serve, and Deport explains how local politics, state laws, institutional policies, and police practices work together to deliver immigr...

by William McCants

In The Believer Will McCants tells the story of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State (a.k.a. ISIS), a group so brutal and hardline that even al-Qaida deemed them to extreme. Baghdadi, an introverted religious scholar with a passion for soccer, now controls large swaths of land in Iraq and Syria. McCants shows how Baghdadi became radicalized in the Saddam Hussein era and found his path to power after connecting with other radicals in an American prison during the Iraq war, culminating in his declaration of a reborn Islamic empire bent on world conquest....

The Prince of Counterterrorism: Washington's favorite Saudi, Muhammad bin Nayef, is the scourge of al-Qaida and Iran but no friend of those who want to see major reforms in the kingdom

by Bruce Riedel

In The Prince of Counterterrorism, Brookings Senior Fellow Bruce Riedel tells the story of Saudi Arabia's Deputy Crown Prince Muhammad bin Nayef (MBN) and his contributions to the security of the kingdom and the Arab world. In the spring of 2015, King Salman removed his brother from the line of succession, and chose instead  his nephew, MBN, as his heir. Riedel explains why this decision is critical for the U.S. as MBN has been America's closest Saudi ally in the fight against terrorism, even helping to thwart attacks from al-Qaida on the U.S. However, while MBN's leadership is critical in countering the growth of groups like al-Qaida and ISIS, Riedel shows why he is unlikely to support social reforms within the kingdom.THE BROOKINGS ESSAY: In the spirit of its commitment to high-quality...

A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (Wisehouse Classics - Original 1792 Edition)

by Mary Wollstonecraft and Sam Vaseghi

A VINDICATION OF THE RIGHTS OF WOMAN: WITH STRICTURES ON POLITICAL AND MORAL SUBJECTS (1792), written by the 18th-century British feminist Mary Wollstonecraft, is one of the earliest works of feminist philosophy. In it, Wollstonecraft responds to those educational and political theorists of the 18th century who did not believe women should have an education. She argues that women ought to have an education commensurate with their position in society, claiming that women are essential to the nation because they educate its children and because they could be "companions" to their husbands, rather than mere wives. Instead of viewing women as ornaments to society or property to be traded in marriage, Wollstonecraft maintains that they are human beings deserving of the same fundamental rights a...

Human Rights in Business: Removal of Barriers to Access to Justice in the European Union

by Juan José Álvarez Rubio and Katerina Yiannibas

The capacity to abuse, or in general affect the enjoyment of human, labour and environmental rights has risen with the increased social and economic power that multinational companies wield in the global economy. At the same time, it appears that it is difficult to regulate the activities of multinational companies in such a way that they conform to international human, labour and environmental rights standards. This has partially to do with the organization of companies into groups of separate legal persons, incorporated in different states, as well as with the complexity of the corporate supply chain. Absent a business and human rights treaty, a more coherent legal and policy approach is required.Faced with the challenge of how to effectively access the right to remedy in the European Un...

The People's Victory: Stories from the Front Lines in the Fight for Marriage Equality

by Marriage Equality USA and Christine Allen

In 1996 a small group of everyday Americans, fed up with being told by allies that marriage equality was the "wrong" issue, and under attack by opponents who said their love and families were "not worthy" of the same institution, launched what would become the nation's oldest and largest grassroots organization for equal marriage rights. The People's Victory is a collection of their stories of how through education and advocacy, success and set back, everyday individuals across the country found their voice to resist, fight, and eventually bring equal marriage rights to an entire nation. The People's Victory shares deeply moving personal testimonies of men and women who lost their spouses to death, only to lose everything they've built for decades; parents who became activists to save th...

Surveillance, Privacy and Security: Citizens’ Perspectives (PRIO New Security Studies)

by Michael Friedewald and J. Peter Burgess

This volume examines the relationship between privacy, surveillance and security, and the alleged privacy–security trade-off, focusing on the citizen’s perspective.Recent revelations of mass surveillance programmes clearly demonstrate the ever-increasing capabilities of surveillance technologies. The lack of serious reactions to these activities shows that the political will to implement them appears to be an unbroken trend. The resulting move into a surveillance society is, however, contested for many reasons. Are the resulting infringements of privacy and other human rights compatible with democratic societies? Is security necessarily depending on surveillance? Are there alternative ways to frame security? Is it possible to gain in security by giving up civil liberties, or is it even...

On Liberty (Wisehouse Classics - The Authoritative Harvard Edition 1909)

by John Stuart Mill and Sam Vaseghi

ON LIBERTY is a philosophical work by English philosopher John Stuart Mill, originally intended as a short essay. The work, published in 1859, applies Mill's ethical system of utilitarianism to society and the state. Mill attempts to establish standards for the relationship between authority and liberty. He emphasizes the importance of individuality which he conceived as a prerequisite to the higher pleasures-the summum bonum of Utilitarianism. Furthermore, Mill criticised the errors of past attempts to defend individuality where, for example, democratic ideals resulted in the "tyranny of the majority". Among the standards established in this work are Mill's three basic liberties of individuals, his three legitimate objections to government intervention, and his two maxims regarding the re...

Saving Justice

by Patrick Torsney

A heartrendingly passionate, unique, often amusing yet clinical dissection of a justice system as seen through the eyes of as disparate a group of people as you could imagine. From legal professionals to prisoners behind bars. Media figures, political activists and tech-savvy hackers, to a 12-year-old girl.

Through a wide range of personal accounts, Saving Justice chronicles the recent “reform” of what was once a world leading criminal justice system by the Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition government. It includes many of the well-known social, legal and economic events of the time and informed (and not so informed!) opinion on many celebrity trials and scandals.

A story of hope and of what happens when a group of people hold a torch to the dark a gove...

One Hundred Years of Chemical Warfare: Research, Deployment, Consequences

by Bretislav Friedrich and Dieter Hoffmann

This book is open access under a CC BY-NC 2.5 license. On April 22, 1915, the German military released 150 tons of chlorine gas at Ypres, Belgium. Carried by a long-awaited wind, the chlorine cloud passed within a few minutes through the British and French trenches, leaving behind at least 1,000 dead and 4,000 injured. This chemical attack, which amounted to the first use of a weapon of mass destruction, marks a turning point in world history. The preparation as well as the execution of the gas attack was orchestrated by Fritz Haber, the director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry in Berlin-Dahlem. During World War I, Haber transformed his research institute into a center for the development of chemical weapons (and of the means of protection agains...
