Download or read book Threats Without Enemies written by Gwyn Prins and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2013-11-05 with total page 228 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The world is moving into a new era which will be dominated by a new range of threats and a new range of priorities. Already headlines tell of storms and droughts, mass emigrations, the danger of old Soviet nuclear reactors and the thinning ozone layer, and with the menaces of global warming, deforestation, pollution and loss of biodiversity, the picture is likely to get bleaker. Unlike traditional threats, these are not made deliberately and standard military responses are usually inappropriate They are threats without enemies and they present quite new and fundamental challenges to the international community which has to find new methods and institutions, as well as the resolve, to tackle them. In this book, eminent experts describe the new threats and the scale of the dangers which they present and set out the political, military and institutional changes needed. Gwyn Prins is Director of the Global Security Programme at the University of Cambridge. He is author of Top guns and Toxic Whales, also published by Earthscan. Progress For A Small Planet Three topics dominate discussions of the global environment: pollution; the consequences of the affluent running ever faster through finite resources; and the growing tensions between rich and poor as a third of humanity continues to live and die in desperate poverty. In this exceptional book Barbara Ward (co-author with Rene Dubos of the bestselling Only One Earth) refused to see these processes as inevitable. It describes new technologies for recycling waste, for energy, for 'getting more for less' ,linking them to ordinary people's working lives. It also suggests a strategy for meeting the basic needs of the disadvantaged, and shows how the vast inequalities between countries can be reduced. This perceptive survey of policies outlines a planetary bargain between the world's nations that would guarantee individual freedom from poverty and keep our shared biosphere in good working order. Originally published in 1993

Book excerpt: To understand the turnaround in Spain’s stance towards Japan during World War II, this book goes beyond mutual contacts and explains through images, representations, and racism why Madrid aimed at declaring war on Japan but not against the III Reich -as London ironically replied when it learned of Spain’s warmongering against one of the Axis members.
Download or read book Enemies of Destiny written by Connie Hunter-Urban and published by WestBow Press. This book was released on 2021-08-20 with total page 212 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Have you been called for God’s purpose? When that happens, you should be aware that something else will occur—attacks. The enemy doesn’t want you to move into your destiny, so he uses any obstacle to keep you from continuing toward the goal. Even people. David’s life demonstrates those dynamics. However, he didn’t let his massive number of attacks deter him but continued to maneuver toward his grand destiny despite the assaults. By studying his examples, we can learn how to recognize that someone is being used by satan as our enemy and how we can emerge victorious and stronger despite the attack. As we move toward our God-ordained destiny, God will use even hard times for our good.
Download or read book Donald Trump and the War on the “Silent Enemy” written by Rhonda Rivera and published by WestBow Press. This book was released on 2021-11-21 with total page 70 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Rhonda Rivera seeks to dispel the “silent enemy” that is at war with Christians and President Donald J. Trump in this call to action. While the enemy—Satan—is very silent, he is plaguing our nation. But by remaining faithful and staying strong in prayer, this enemy can be defeated and Trump’s mission to bring prayer back to schools and society at large can be accomplished. The author praises Trump for standing up for the unborn, noting that he’s said on many occasions that every child is a gift from God. Trump said, “Together we must protect the sanctity of every human life, and when we glimpse the image of a baby in the womb, we glimpse the majesty of God’s creation, and when we hold a newborn in our arms, we know the love that each newborn brings to a family.” The author’s earnest prayer is to lead others to the understanding that it is the Lord alone who can rewrite history and keep us safe until His return. He is in this battle with us—and we will win.
Download or read book To Serve the Enemy written by Shane Darcy and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2019-09-26 with total page 200 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A constant yet oftentimes concealed practice in war has been the use of informers and collaborators by parties to an armed conflict. Despite the prevalence of such activity, and the serious and at times fatal consequences that befall those who collaborate with an enemy, international law applicable in times of armed conflict does not squarely address the phenomenon. The recruitment, use and treatment of informers and other collaborators is addressed only partially and at times indirectly by international humanitarian law. In this book, Shane Darcy examines the development and application of the relevant rules and principles of the laws of armed conflict in relation to collaboration. With a primary focus on international humanitarian law as may be applicable to various forms of collaboration, the book also offers an assessment of the relevance of human rights and considers how the phenomenon of collaboration has been addressed post-conflict.
Download or read book Necessity in International Law written by Jens David Ohlin and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2016-09-09 with total page 216 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Necessity is a notoriously dangerous and slippery concept-dangerous because it contemplates virtually unrestrained killing in warfare and slippery when used in conflicting ways in different areas of international law. Jens David Ohlin and Larry May untangle these confusing strands and perform a descriptive mapping of the ways that necessity operates in legal and philosophical arguments in jus ad bellum, jus in bello, human rights, and criminal law. Although the term "necessity" is ever-present in discussions regarding the law and ethics of killing, its meaning changes subtly depending on the context. It is sometimes an exception, at other times a constraint on government action, and most frequently a broad license in war that countenances the wholesale killing of enemy soldiers in battle. Is this legal status quo in war morally acceptable? Ohlin and May offer a normative and philosophical critique of international law's prevailing notion of jus in bello necessity and suggest ways that killing in warfare could be made more humane-not just against civilians but soldiers as well. Along the way, the authors apply their analysis to modern asymmetric conflicts with non-state actors and the military techniques most likely to be used against them. Presenting a rich tapestry of arguments from both contemporary and historical Just War theory, Necessity in International Law is the first full-length study of necessity as a legal and philosophical concept in international affairs.

Download or read book The Enemy at the Gate written by Andrew Wheatcroft and published by Random House. This book was released on 2009-11-10 with total page 384 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In 1683, two empires - the Ottoman, based in Constantinople, and the Habsburg dynasty in Vienna - came face to face in the culmination of a 250-year power struggle: the Great Siege of Vienna. Within the city walls the choice of resistance over surrender to the largest army ever assembled by the Turks created an all-or-nothing scenario: every last survivor would be enslaved or ruthlessly slaughtered. The Turks had set their sights on taking Vienna, the city they had long called 'The Golden Apple' since their first siege of the city in 1529. Both sides remained resolute, sustained by hatred of their age-old enemy, certain that their victory would be won by the grace of God. Eastern invaders had always threatened the West: Huns, Mongols, Goths, Visigoths, Vandals and many others. The Western fears of the East were vivid and powerful and, in their new eyes, the Turks always appeared the sole aggressors. Andrew Wheatcroft's extraordinary book shows that this belief is a grievous oversimplification: during the 400 year struggle for domination, the West took the offensive just as often as the East. As modern Turkey seeks to re-orient its relationship with Europe, a new generation of politicians is exploiting the residual fears and tensions between East and West to hamper this change. The Enemy at the Gate provides a timely and masterful account of this most complex and epic of conflicts.
Download or read book The Global Society and Its Enemies written by Ludger Kühnhardt and published by Springer. This book was released on 2017-05-05 with total page 276 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book discusses contemporary constellations of international politics and global transformation. It offers guidance on how to conceptualize the complexity of current global changes and practical policy advice in order to promote an open global society. In the light of today’s challenges, the author re-interprets the main argument of the philosopher Karl Popper in "The Open Society and Its Enemies". Based on this framework and new empirical evidence, the book discusses the thesis of an ongoing Third World War, triggered by fundamental deficits in nation-building, occurring primarily within states and not between them, and accelerated by asymmetric forms of warfare and Islamist totalitarianism.The book also explores various threats to the global order, such as the paradox of borders as barriers and bridges, the global effects of the youth bubble in many developing countries, and the misuse of religious interpretation for the use of political violence. Lastly, the author identifies advocates and supporters of a liberal, multilateral and open order and argues for a reinvention of the Western world to contribute to a revival of a liberal global order, based on mutual respect and joint leadership.

Download or read book The Open Economy and its Enemies written by Jane Duckett and published by Cambridge University Press. This book was released on 2006-12-21 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: There is a vigorous debate about the merits of globalisation for developing countries. Based on numerous focus-group discussions and over 10,000 interviews, this book studies economic and cultural openness from the perspective of the public in four developing or 'transitional' countries: Vietnam, (South) Korea, the Czech Republic and Ukraine (both before and after the Orange Revolution). It finds many supporters of opening up, but also many who are discontented with its downsides and who expect states to tackle the exploitation and unfairness that accompany it. Among the most fervent enemies of openness there is support not just for peaceful public protest to tackle the problems it brings, but for violence or sabotage. The methodology provides a unique opportunity for the public in developing countries to 'speak with their own voices' about markets and openness - and highlights the subtlety, ambiguity, tensions, conflicts and emotion that statistics alone fail to capture.
