NOC Twice

release date: Jan 01, 2019
NOC Twice
I WASN'T A REGULAR DAILY WORKER but a returning non-official cover officer from overseas who was recalled home every now and then for briefings. Most people here had no clue of what I really did, though I noted a certain distant reverence in their cleanly shaved facial responses to me and my unkempt stubble tonight. My six-numbered security card that carried no visual link to SIS, whenever it was inserted in the box, followed by my four-digit PIN code (that made the green light flash) told them something nice about me on their monitors…or it may have read ‘don’t f*** with him’ in easy-to-understand legalese... The second installment of The NOC Trilogy by Nicholas Anderson.

NOC - Non-Official Cover

release date: Jan 01, 2019
NOC - Non-Official Cover
"WE WERE INSTITUTIONAL KILLERS in disruptive actions on the black, that is to say we made illegal entries across borders to perform dirty work, then returned home mostly without the knowledge or connection to the local British embassy's staff assigned to other covert affairs. The main job description was called deep cover within SIS, though the U.S.-led NATO preferred NOC or non-official cover - either description was undeclared. I served in various divisions in charge of different continents, often living like a mole..."

The Battle of Milne Bay 1942

release date: Aug 05, 2018
The Battle of Milne Bay 1942
By 1942 the formidable Japanese military had conquered swathes of territory across south-east Asia and the Pacific Ocean. Despite its defeat at the Battle of Midway, Japan remained a potent enemy committed to the creation of a defensive arc to shield its captured possessions in the Pacific. The capture of Port Moresby would cement the southern border of this defensive arc and sever the vital lines of communication between Australia and the United States. It was the Japanese plan to seize Moresby that would set the course for the Battle of Milne Bay. Situated on the eastern tip of New Guinea, Milne Bay was a wretched hell-hole: swamp-riddled, a haven for malaria and cursed with torrential rain. It was here that General Douglas MacArthur ordered the secret construction of an Allied base with airfields to protect the maritime approach to Port Moresby. But the Japanese soon discovered the base at Milne Bay and despatched a task force to destroy its garrison and occupy the base. All that stood between the Japanese and their prize was a brigade of regular Australian soldiers untrained in tropical warfare and a brigade of Australian militia with no combat experience whatsoever. While the Kokoda campaign is etched in public memory, its sister battle at Milne Bay has long been neglected. However the bitter fighting over this isolated harbour played an equally important role in protecting Port Moresby and made a valuable contribution to shifting Allied fortunes in the Pacific War.

Baroque Music

release date: Jan 01, 1994
Baroque Music
The Baroque Style in music emerged during the late sixteenth century and lasted well into the eighteenth. Italy was the source of this new artistic impulse, which soon spread across Europe, and the period was one of striking contrasts and innovations. Few other eras witnessed such a profusion of new forms: opera, oratorio, cantata, sonata and concerto. Although Baroque music contained distinct national idioms, fundamental values were shared by all the leading creative figures of the time. One such value was a declared intent to move the passions, to stir emotions - those emotions appropriate to the two great contemporary patrons of music, the Church and the nobility. Ecclesiastical commissions encouraged composers to depict suffering, pathos and elation, while secular and court patronage gave them the opportunity to evoke splendor and opulence. Nicholas Anderson, a leading authority on Baroque music and a well-known scholar and broadcaster, relates musical history to the cultural milieu of Church and court, as well as to public patronage. He considers both major figures such as Bach, Handel and Vivaldi, and lesser-known artists whose music is now being avidly collected and explored - Telemann, Charpentier and Leclair, among others. The Baroque period, one of the richest in Western music, provided the foundation for all subsequent musical development. Its enduring strength is amply attested by the popularity of today's "authentic" performances and recordings. Now this growing interest finds its proper complement in a complete and authoritative account of the Baroque heritage.

1KBW on International Child Abduction

release date: Oct 08, 2020
1KBW on International Child Abduction
International child abduction is a distinct field of practice within the family law sphere. It is a topic that requires specialist knowledge of a large body of case-law. It also requires an understanding of several international regulations and treaties. In addition to cases that are governed by our international reciprocal arrangements, there are also some cases, usually described as 'non-Hague Convention abductions', which concern abductions to or from non-Member States of the above instruments. Such cases present their own specific complications and are subject to their own line of legal authority. The majority of international child abduction cases take place in the High Court, and practitioners in this area therefore also need to have good practical knowledge of High Court practice and procedure. This includes issues such as how to make urgent without notice applications, the criteria to apply for different types of Tipstaff orders, and when to seek specific orders for disclosure to assist in tracing a child. Most family solicitors encounter child abduction cases from time to time, but only a relatively small number are specialists in this field. This title provides a practical and accessible guide to the subject which can be used as a reference tool by all family practitioners, but which is also sufficiently detailed to be of use to those who specialise in this area. It includes relevant statutory and other materials, so that practitioners can take the book to court and have all the tools needed for day-to-day practice in one place. In addition to general commentary there are flow charts explaining procedural steps to be undertaken and diagrams summarising key cases.

To Kokoda

release date: Oct 05, 2014
To Kokoda
When the Japanese war machine swept through South-East Asia in early 1942, it was inevitable that conflict would reach Australian territory on the island of New Guinea. The ultimate Japanese target was Port Moresby. Conquering the capital would sever communication between Australia and her American ally and allow Japanese air power to threaten Australia’s northern cities. When a seaborne invasion was thwarted at the Battle of the Coral Sea, the Nankai Shitai landed in Papua on 21 July and lunched an overland attack. Having captured the village of Kokoda with its vital airstrip, the Japanese headed for Port Moresby, traversing the treacherous Kokoda trail that winds across the might Owen Stanley Range. The Australian Army was ill prepared to confront the Japanese. Poorly equipped, undertrained, and unaccustomed to jungle warfare, the untested militia battalions were the first to face the battle-hardened invading forces. Later, when veteran AIF brigades were rushed forward to bolster the militia, they also fell in the path of the Japanese onslaught. But the over-extension of supply lines and disaster on Guadalcanal eventually cruelled Japanese aspirations and the Kokoda campaign became a bloody and protracted struggle as the Australian troops fought to drive the Japanese off the Owen Stanleys and out of Papua. While the front-line troops were engaged in a bitter fight for survival, a power struggle erupted at the top of the Allied command hierarchy resulting in a series of sackings, the competing ambitions of the Allied commanders clouding their judgement at a critical time. It was under these conditions, against a determined enemy and on one of the harshest battlefields on earth, that the Australian forces began to learn the crucial lessons that would be needed to break the back of the Japanese Army in New Guinea.

Rare Properties

release date: Jan 01, 2010
Rare Properties
This catalog documents Rare Properties, exhibited at the Periscope Project for Art and Architecture in San Diego, California December 3, 2010- January 14th, 2011. Rare Properties began as an investigation into landscape and wilderness representation found in Western art galleries and Museums. Rare Properties is a body of photographic work that has been produced over the past few years during a series of travels through the American West. The project has focused primarily on locations that have become centers of artistic culture for artists whose work depicts the surrounding wilderness. From the resort towns of Jackson Hole and down to larger hot spots like Santa Fe, the western gallery scene is very active. Hundreds of art galleries offer works that nostalgically depict the landscapes, wildlife, and cowboys during the mythical frontier life. The mythology is potent, even when we realize it is not genuine or true. You can recognize the same mythological impulses at work in the galleries lining the streets of Park City, where paintings of bears, mountain lions, and sweeping vistas celebrate the world that is being destroyed by the ski villages and condos that patronize these galleries. In coastal California you find similar galleries; in their case, with scenes of dolphins, seabirds and windswept empty beaches. Western American art is best understood as myth in visual form. The art enshrines the ideals of nineteenth-century white Americans who saw the West as a promised land. Western art's contested reputation today results from its propensity to celebrate frontier expansion as fundamental to the shaping of a distinctive national character.

Planet Ripple
"After thousands of years of global flooding, the survivors make a meager living trapped aboard their ships. Some don't even believe there ever was land, but when new land emerges for the first time in millennia, the prospect of humanity returning to their true home may be too good to be true. Minnow, a woman born with multiple disabilities still trying to make her way through life continues her one-woman campaign against the Barrakuda army, braving their continued affronts to her psyche by simply surviving. As their tactics change, she must anticipate them correctly or risk the blood of many on her prosthetic hands. Discovering terrible new aspects of this developing world, she wonders how easily she could fall through the crevices into its darkest places, and if she could still rise up." -- Amazon.com.

The Performance of Relative-Value Equity Strategies

release date: Jan 01, 2016
The Performance of Relative-Value Equity Strategies
This paper examines investment strategies that combine time-series and cross-sectional stock sorts based on scaled price-to-earnings ratios, which I describe as relative-value strategies. Relative-value strategies buy (short) stocks that are below (above) their long-run historical absolute or market-relative valuation. I test the performance of relative-value strategies versus a traditional value strategy. I find that a relative-value effect exists, but is dwarfed by the traditional value effect. On average, the tested relative-value strategies deliver long-short returns of 1.25% p.a. and long-only excess returns of 0.69% p.a. over 1990 to 2014. The traditional value strategy produces long-short returns of 5.50% p.a. and long-only excess returns of 4.33% p.a. Relative-value strategies offer an alternative but not necessarily superior source of returns. I evaluate returns after adjusting for common risk factors. I explore the effect on returns from alternative portfolio formation and rebalancing rules. I discuss possible explanations for the findings and implications for investors.

Measurement of Training Outcomes

Measurement of Training Outcomes
Measurement of training outcomes as a requirement for evaluating new training techniques is one that is difficult to meet. Managers may have different concepts of what they want, than do the investigators. In the report, possibilities for measuring outcomes of training are surveyed, viewing training as a form of planned social change. Approaches which are discussed include adaptive control models, decision theory models, and simulation models. Illustrations from the CAI literature of recent attempts to measure training outcomes are given.

A Portrait of Mexico
A 252 page book of previously unpublished travel photographs captured by 13 year old Robert Hans Anderson while he and his family were living in Mexico in 1936. The images presented in this book are hardly the typical tourist snapshots that one would expect from a 13 year old, but rather intimate, candid portraits captured on a 35mm Leica, with a skill akin to the masters of the day; Walker Evans, Paul Strand and Henri Cartier Bresson. The book's format and images were edited by his son Nicholas Hans Starke Anderson.
