The Origins of the Present Troubles in Northern Ireland

The Origins of the Present Troubles in Northern Ireland
For quarter of a century now the British Army has been involved in a bloody and protracted conflict in Northern Ireland. This book looks at the roots of the current struggle and of British military intervention, setting both in the longer perspective of the Anglo-Irish Troubles. It is, however, more than a chronicle of military strategies and sectarian strife: it seeks to place the use of the army within the context of the wider British experience of dealing with political violence, and to address the broader issue of how democratic states have responded to both ethnic conflict and the threat of `internal'' disorder

In She Walks in Beauty, Caroline Kennedy has once again marshaled the gifts of our greatest poets to pay a very personal tribute to the human experience, this time to the complex and fascinating subject of womanhood.

The collection includes works by Elizabeth Bishop, Sharon Olds, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Mary Oliver, Pablo Neruda, W. H. Auden, Adrienne Rich, Sandra Cisneros, Anne Sexton, W. S. Merwin, Dorothy Parker, Queen Elizabeth I, Lucille Clifton, Naomi Shahib Nye, and W. B. Yeats.

Suspect Devices

release date: May 01, 2013
Suspect Devices
In the wake of the American-led invasion of Afghanistan and then Iraq, one weapon in particular has come to dominate the image we have of these wars-the ''"Improvised Explosive Device" or IED. Dramatized by films such as The Hurt Locker and omnipresent in the media because of its continuing toll on allied service personnel, especially bomb-disposal specialists, the IED has become the ubiquitous asymmetric ''weapon of the weak'' and a major threat to Western foreign policy objectives and military morale. In this rigorous book on the IED phenomenon, Caroline Kennedy argues that it is indeed a "ubiquitous weapon," but that it is not new and has been a feature of the battlefield for much longer than we imagine. She shows how the IED became a thorn in the side of the "Western way of war" and how its increasing proliferation into criminal organisations and use in "ordinary" forms of violence represents a step change in threats to both military and civil order and a potent challenge to Western interests at many levels. Suspect Devices offers a graphic interpretation of the power, both actual and symbolic, of this durable and potent weapon, and an important and urgent reflection on its contemporary relevance.
