Book Excerpt :

"An achingly rendered exploration of queer desire, grief, and the inexorable scars of the past." —Katy Rose Pool, author of There Will Come A Darkness Death lurks around every corner in this unforgettable Jewish historical fantasy about a city, a boy, and the shadows of the past that bind them both together. Chicago, 1893. For Alter Rosen, this is the land of opportunity, and he dreams of the day he’ll have enough money to bring his mother and sisters to America, freeing them from the oppression they face in his native Romania. But when Alter’s best friend, Yakov, becomes the latest victim in a long line of murdered Jewish boys, his dream begins to slip away. While the rest of the city is busy celebrating the World’s Fair, Alter is now living a nightmare: possessed by Yakov’s dybbuk, he is plunged into a world of corruption and deceit, and thrown back into the arms of a dangerous boy from his past. A boy who means more to Alter than anyone knows. Now, with only days to spare until the dybbuk takes over Alter’s body completely, the two boys must race to track down the killer—before the killer claims them next. "Chillingly sinister, warmly familiar, and breathtakingly transportive, The City Beautiful is the haunting, queer Jewish historical thriller of my darkest dreams."—Dahlia Adler, creator of LGBTQreads and editor of That Way Madness Lies A New York Public Library Best Book for Teens 2021

Book Short Summary:

During the early 1960s the Cold War reached its climax. Britain's dwindling power in the Middle East was under siege from Arab nationalism, the Communist bloc and from American designs in the region. Aden, with its strategic military base and old Protectorate buffer zone, was soon the main battleground. The 1962 Egyptian-inspired coup in the neighbouring Kingdom of North Yemen further tightened the noose. So began a bitter and bloody insurgency war in South Arabia. British regular an special forces were soon pitted against growing and formidable insurgency forces, fighting both a war in the mountains and an urban conflict in the backstreets of Aden. Intelligence agencies vied for control of 'hearts and minds'. The British launched a clandestine war in Yemen to keep their enemies at bay. But still the situation in Aden spiralled out of control, culminating in a bloody slaughter in 1967. In that November, the British Army finally withdrew from South Arabia. Aden Insurgency is the extraordinary story of Britain's last colonial conflict. Using a wide range of recently released archive and eye-witness accounts, the author charts the collapse of the South Arabian state. Set against a background of ruthless political ambition, these events shaped the Yemen of today.

Book Short Summary:

The book examines the military history of Aden Colony from 1839 including the fractious turn of the century Border Commissions with Turkey and the defeat of British forces near Aden by the Turks in 1915. Great Britain successfully defended the base for the rest of The Great War and throughout the Second World War.rnrnThe period after 1945 was one of rising tension as Great Britain drew down its Imperial commitments from the Near and Middle East. Britain's intention to retain a military base in Aden was rejected by Egypt, who, having embarrassed Great Britain during the 1956 Suez Crisis, set about supporting Yemeni aspirations with subversion, in concert with the Soviet Union and China. This led to Aden coming under increasing pressure from Yemeni nationalism during the late 1950 and early 1960s. When an attempt was made to murder the British High Commissioner, a State Emergency was declared. Initially, while operations were confined to the mountainous Radfan region near the border, the internal security of Aden became increasingly fragile as nationalists escalated attacks on the Security Forces and Service dependants with grenade, shootings and bomb attacks in the narrow streets.rnrnWhen the British declared that they would leave in 1967, the British forces were caught up in interfactional fighting with 20 June 1967 proving a black day with twenty British soldiers murdered. This led to the famous occupation of Crater district by Lt Col 'Mad Mitch' Mitchell and his Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders. By November that year, after conducting a masterly withdrawal in contact, the British left Aden for good.

Book Short Summary:

Ahmad and Hasan were two of the brightest students at Aden College in Yemen; they were also best friends. After graduation, they traveled together to Britain, where Ahmad studied medicine in Edinburgh and Hasan studied law in London. Their friendship remained strong while in Britain, as did their competitive natures. However, politics and ambition changed all that! Hasan returns to Aden, where he gets married to none other than Ahmads sister, Salma, who adores him. Hasans career is just as successful as his personal life, and he becomes a high-ranking, well-respected minister of justice. Meanwhile, Ahmad develops a good reputation as a physician, but diagnoses murder by the communist government, and has to flee. Fate brings the best friends back together in Sanaa, the capital of North Yemen. This time, the circumstances are dire. Once again Ahmads forensic training incriminates one of the presidents in-laws, accused of murdering a burglar. But Hasan chooses to protect the sheikh, and put his brother-in-law, in jail. Help comes from a teenaged prostitute.

Book Short Summary:

Well over six years of Chinese anti-piracy operations in the Gulf of Aden have directly supported People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) modernization goals and provided invaluable experience operating in distant waters. Lessons learned have spawned PLAN innovations in doctrine, operations, and international coordination. Many of the insights gleaned during deployments are applicable to security objectives closer to home; some officers enjoy promotion to important positions after returning. Anti-piracy operations have been a springboard for China to expand considerably its maritime security operations, from evacuating its citizens from Libya and Yemen to escorting Syrian chemical weapons to their destruction and participating in the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. So great are the benefits to China's global maritime presence and enhanced image at home and abroad that when Gulf of Aden anti-piracy operations finally wind down, Beijing will have to develop new means to address its burgeoning overseas interests.

Book Short Summary:

Aden, 20 June 1967: two army Land Rovers burn ferociously in the midday sun. The bodies of British soldiers litter the road. Thick black smoke bellows above Crater town, home to insurgents who are fighting the British-backed Federation government. Crater had come to symbolise Arab nationalist defiance in the face of the world’s most powerful empire. Hovering 2,000 ft. above the smouldering destruction, a tiny Scout helicopter surveys the scene. Its passenger is the recently arrived Commanding Officer of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, Lieutenant-Colonel Colin Mitchell. Soon the world’s media would christen him ‘Mad Mitch’, in recognition of his controversial reoccupation of Crater two weeks later. Mad Mitch was truly a man out of his time. Supremely self-confident and debonair, he was an empire builder, not dismantler, and railed against the national malaise he felt had gripped Britain’s political establishment. Drawing on a wide array of never-before-seen archival sources and eyewitness testimonies, Mad Mitch’s Tribal Law tells the remarkable story of inspiring leadership, loyalty and betrayal in the final days of British Empire. It is, above all, a shocking account of Britain’s forgotten war on terror.

Book Short Summary:

This book details the Soviet Military Liaison Mission (SMLM) in West Germany and the U.S. Military Liaison Mission (USMLM) in East Germany as microcosms of the Cold War strategic intelligence and counterintelligence landscape. Thirty years since the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Soviet and U.S. Military Liaison Missions are all but forgotten. Their operation was established by a post-WWII Allied occupation forces' agreement, and missions had relative freedom to travel and collect intelligence throughout East and West Germany from 1947 until 1990. This book addresses Cold War intelligence and counterintelligence in a manner that provides a broad historical perspective and then brings the reader to a never-before documented artifact of Cold War history. The book details the intelligence/counterintelligence dynamic that was among the most emblematic of the Cold War. Ultimately, the book addresses a saga that remains one of the true Cold War enigmas.

Book Short Summary:

Building a foundational understanding of the digital, Logic of the Digital reveals a unique digital ontology. Beginning from formal and technical characteristics, especially the binary code at the core of all digital technologies, Aden Evens traces the pathways along which the digital domain of abstract logic encounters the material, human world. How does a code using only 0s and 1s give rise to the vast range of applications and information that constitutes a great and growing portion of our world? Evens' analysis shows how any encounter between the actual and the digital must cross an ontological divide, a gap between the productive materiality of the human world and the reductive abstraction of the binary code. Logic of the Digital examines the distortions of this ontological crossing, considering the formal abstraction that persists in exemplary digital technologies and techniques such as the mouse, the Web, the graphical user interface, and the development of software. One crucial motive for this research lies in the paradoxical issue of creativity in relation to digital technologies: the ontology of abstraction leaves little room for the unpredictable or accidental that is essential to creativity, but digital technologies are nevertheless patently creative. Evens inquires into the mechanisms by which the ostensibly sterile binary code can lend itself to such fecund cultural production. Through clarification of the digital's ontological foundation, Evens points to a significant threat to creativity lurking in the nature of the digital and so generates a basis for an ethics of digital practice. Examining the bits that give the digital its ontology, exploring the potentials and limitations of programming, and using gaming as an ideal test of digital possibility, Logic of the Digital guides future practices and shapes academic research in the digital.

Book Short Summary:

Surveillance Countermeasures By: Aden C. Magee In today’s prolific hostile threat environment, surveillance countermeasures expertise is a necessary component of security knowledge. The wide range of increasingly unconstrained threats to the personal privacy and security of average citizens include common criminals and stalkers, private and corporate investigators, government-sponsored espionage and other covert agencies, and international crime and terrorist organizations. In virtually all cases, the elements that threaten individual, corporate, or national security conduct surveillance operations to further their objectives, or as the primary means to an end Surveillance countermeasures are actions taken by an individual or security detail to identify the presence of surveillance and, if necessary, to elude or evade the individual or group conducting the surveillance. Understanding how the surveillance threat thinks and reacts is the basis of effective surveillance countermeasures. This manual details surveillance countermeasures concepts, techniques, and procedures that are proven effective against the spectrum of surveillance capabilities ranging from the very basic to the world’s most sophisticated. This manual now supersedes the previous industry standards as the authoritative resource on surveillance countermeasures principles, procedures, and practices. This manual is a compilation of the most relevant details from two of the all-time classics and best-sellers in the genre – Surveillance Countermeasures and Countering Hostile Surveillance. It also draws precise threat/surveillance perspective from another of the all-time greats – Secrets of Surveillance. The fact that this manual consolidates the knowledge derived from these three unparalleled classics demonstrates that this manual now represents the full-spectrum amalgam of surveillance countermeasures methodologies ranging from the foundational baseline of tactics and techniques to the most advanced concepts and procedures. This revised instant classic for the genre also includes many additional details and special-interest topics to form an informational/educational resource like no other. Written by one of the rare breed who has actually stalked the streets and stood in the shadows, this manual presents surveillance countermeasures tradecraft from the theoretical to the practical levels in terms of the “art” and “science.” The execution of techniques as components of methodical procedures to effectively manipulate and exploit a hostile surveillance effort is representative of a security professional or security-conscious individual operating at the master’s level of surveillance countermeasures tradecraft. The information and instruction in this manual begins with the basics and then takes the practitioner to that level execution.

Book Short Summary:

Abdi Ismail Samatar provides a clear and foundational history of Somalia at the dawn of the country’s independence when Africa’s first democrats appeared. While many African countries were dominated by authoritarian rulers when they entered the postcolonial era—and scholars have assumed this as a standard feature of political leadership on the continent—Somalia had an authentic democratic leadership. Samatar’s political biography of Aden A. Osman and Abdirazak H. Hussen breaks the stereotype of brutal African tyranny. Samatar discusses the framing of democracy in Somalia following the years of control by fascist Italy, the formation of democratic organizations during the political struggle, and the establishment of democratic foundations in the new nation. Even though this early state of affairs did not last, these leaders left behind a strong democratic legacy that may provide a model of good governance for the rest of the continent.

Book Short Summary:

"A heart-pounding adventure. Magic and monsters lurk in every corner as a headstrong trio search for their place in Aden Polydoros's haunting world." ––Chloe Gong, #1 New York Times bestselling author of These Violent Delights From the author of The City Beautiful comes a haunting fantasy following Toma, adopted daughter of the benevolent undead, making her way across a civil war-torn continent to save her younger sister as she discovers she might possess magical powers herself. The Kosa empire roils in tension, on the verge of being torn apart by a proletarian revolution between magic-endowed elites and the superstitious lower class, but seventeen-year-old Toma lives blissfully disconnected from the conflict in the empire with her adoptive family of benevolent undead. When she meets Vanya, a charming commoner branded as a witch by his own neighbors, and the dethroned Tsar Mikhail himself, the unlikely trio bonds over trying to restore Mikhail’s magic and protect the empire from the revolutionary leader, Koschei, whose forces have stolen the castle. Vanya has his magic, and Mikhail has his title, but if Toma can’t dig deep and find her power in time, all of their lives will be at Koschei’s mercy. Praise for The City Beautiful "An achingly rendered exploration of queer desire, grief, and the inexorable scars of the past." —Katy Rose Pool, author of There Will Come A Darkness "Chillingly sinister, warmly familiar, and breathtakingly transportive, The City Beautiful is the haunting, queer Jewish historical thriller of my darkest dreams." —Dahlia Adler, creator of LGBTQreads and editor of That Way Madness Lies

Book Short Summary:

Half a century ago, Britain abandoned Aden, its last colonial outpost in the Arab world as its attempt to establish a new polity foundered amid a rising tide of Arab nationalism, tribal infighting and anti-colonial sentiment that eventually gave rise to the establishment of South Yemen. Yet just over three years later in 1971, a new state, the United Arab Emirates, emerged in Arabia, formed from the old Trucial states over which Britain had long held sway. At a time when state failure and fragmentation has become synonymous with much of the Middle East and where the very idea of sovereignty and legitimacy have become contested issues, this comparative historical study of the varied British attempts at state creation on the Arabian peninsula offers important insights into the limits of external ambition, as well as the possibilities that great power retrenchment offered to the peoples of the region. The legacy of British influence in Aden and Abu Dhabi still very much resonates today; this volume explains why. This book was originally published as a special issue of Middle Eastern Studies.

Book Short Summary:

Essai autant que roman, ce livre permet à la fois de mieux comprendre le rôle de l’Islam et de juger de sa place dans notre civilisation contemporaine. À travers le récit d'un jeune musulman sunnite, il nous fait découvrir le Coran et nous aide à évaluer son influence dans la société actuelle. Ce roman, en deux tomes, à l’intrigue palpitante d’émotion, raconte la jeunesse d’un Palestinien qu’un destin étonnant et une histoire d’amour hors norme conduisent à la découverte de lui-même, de sa conscience, et de sa relation avec les religions de son enfance, l’islam et le christianisme. Par une introspection à la fois insolite et spirituelle, il nous décrit comment les élans de la divine Providence le mèneront d’Alexandrie à New York, puis Sanaa, Aden, Djibouti, et enfin, Paris. Il est né musulman, certes ; mais sa raison défie cette réalité et son cœur refuse de le suivre. Il réalise peu à peu que cette religion à laquelle il se croyait enchaîné, occulte en fait la vraie nature de ce rite à l’emprise implacable sur un milliard et demi de fidèles... Un récit captivant. Une réflexion morale et spirituelle sans concession.

Tant que son règne dura, l’harmonie était maîtresse. Mais Assyl n’était pas immortel : il périclita, mourut, et le monde fut à nouveau rendu au chaos. Razraén, créature céleste déchue du royaume des cieux, voit en la mort d’Assyl l’opportunité qu’il attendait depuis toujours, tapi dans l’ombre : la destruction pure et simple de l’humanité. Mû par une haine profonde de la nature humaine qu’il juge méprisable, il attise la discorde et conspire pour confier aux peuples les plus puissants les Cinq Armes du destin, marquant l’avènement d’un monde profondément déséquilibré. C’est sur cette terre fracturée par l’inégalité que naît Aden, un enfant aux yeux d’un bleu hypnotique ; les yeux d’un être au destin exceptionnel, capable de percer les cœurs. Il se dresse contre l’injustice, bien déterminé à mener sa propre révolution au gré des rencontres qui jalonnent son aventure. Mais il ignore qu’il existe toujours deux faces d’une même pièce... Une saga d’heroic fantasy enchanteresse et épique au chant vibrant d’espoir.

Book Short Summary:

Essai autant que roman, ce livre permet à la fois de mieux comprendre le rôle de l’Islam et de juger de sa place dans notre civilisation contemporaine. À travers le récit d'un jeune musulman sunnite, il nous fait découvrir le Coran et nous aide à évaluer son influence dans la société actuelle. Ce roman, en deux tomes, à l’intrigue palpitante d’émotion, raconte la jeunesse d’un Palestinien qu’un destin étonnant et une histoire d’amour hors norme conduisent à la découverte de lui-même, de sa conscience, et de sa relation avec les religions de son enfance, l’islam et le christianisme. Par une introspection à la fois insolite et spirituelle, il nous décrit comment les élans de la divine Providence le mèneront d’Alexandrie à New York, puis Sanaa, Aden, Djibouti, et enfin, Paris. Il est né musulman, certes ; mais sa raison défie cette réalité et son cœur refuse de le suivre. Il réalise peu à peu que cette religion à laquelle il se croyait enchaîné, occulte en fait la vraie nature de ce rite à l’emprise implacable sur un milliard et demi de fidèles... Un récit captivant. Une réflexion morale et spirituelle sans concession.

Book Short Summary:

Adakah kata yang lebih indah dari rasa syukur kita kepada Allah yang Maha Pengasih dan Penyayang, Maha Pemberi, dan Maha Kuasa atas segala sesuatu? Tidak ada! Itu jawabnya. Dan inilah yang sering kita lupakan dalam keseharian. Saat ditimpa kesulitan kita cenderung mengumpat. Saat melakukan pekerjaan yang melelahkan kita cenderung mengeluh. Saat keinginan kita tidak tercapai? Kita menyalahkan keadaan. Coba kita renungkan sejenak, apakah dengan mengumpat kesulitan kita lalu menjadi teratasi? Apakah dengan mengeluh lalu pekerjaan yang melelahkan itu cepat selesai? Apakah dengan menyalahkan keadaan lalu keadaan tiba-tiba wuss! Berbalik mendukung kita? Tidak! Itulah jawabnya.

Book Short Summary:

Der Handlungsrahmen der Wirtschaft ist das Recht. Wirtschaft ist heute international. Auch das Recht, jedenfalls das Wirtschaftsrecht, ist heute international. Die Wirtschaft wird zunehmend von Gesetzen und Rechtsgrundsätzen beherrscht, welche über die Grenzen eines Staates hinausgreifen. Das internationale private Wirtschaftsrecht (IPR) gliedert sich in verschiedene Rechtsgebiete die für sich genommen schon sehr umfangreich sind. Merkmal dieses Buches ist daher, dass das IPR als Einheit wahrgenommen wird, dies geschieht durch Vereinfachung. Ein weiteres Merkmal sind die Fälle, die jedem Abschnitt vorangestellt und darin auch behandelt werden. Sie stammen aus dem wirklichen Leben. Ein drittes Merkmal des Buches ist der 9. Teil in dem das BGB international kommentiert wird, zumeist mit Vorschriften des alten französischen Code Civil und des ganz modernen niederländischen Burgerlijk Wetboek. Diese zweite Auflage wurde erforderlich, weil eine ganze Reihe von europäischen Rechtssetzungen insbesondere das internationale Privatrecht aber auch das internationale Zivilprozessrecht neu gestaltet haben, so dass wesentliche Aussagen der bisherigen Auflage zwar im Ergebnis nicht falsch sind, wohl aber aufgrund neuer Vorschriften präzisiert werden müssen. Besonders hervorzuheben sind die beiden, das internationale Privatrecht grundlegend umgestaltenden EG Verordnungen Rom I, welche im Dezember 2009 in Kraft treten wird und Rom II, welche bereits im Januar 2009 in der Kraft getreten ist.
