This book gives a detailed and precise analysis of the rise of Russian foreign policy in this decade. Russia's military interventions in Ukraine from 2014, and Syria from 2015, caused widespread surprise among Western policy communities including the United States. However, these interventions represented the culmination of two well-established trends that had been clearly identified by Russia-watchers over preceding years. These were first, a mounting perception of direct threat against Russia from the West, and second, Russia's own greatly increased capability for military or other action to respond to this perceived threat. In addition to the examination of Russia's use of military force in Ukraine and Syria, this book gives a complete insight into Russian diplomacy by analyzing the interference into the U.S. presidential elections, engagement with Latin America and interests in Sub-Saharan Africa.

    Becoming Native to This Place

    In this essay collection, one of the foremost voices in sustainable agriculture sets out a new approach to farming and community engagement. 
    In these six compelling essays, Wes Jackson lays the foundation for a new farming economy grounded in nature's principles and located in dying small towns and rural communities. Exploding the tenets of industrial agriculture, Jackson seeks to integrate food production with nature in a way that sustains both. 
    Jackson’s radical vision is directly at odds with a modern consumer culture that deprives us of any meaningful connection to our natural and social environments. His essays, anchored in his work with The Land Institute, offer an authentic and practical approach to topics that often fail to escape the realm of theory.

    Many people believe grieving is only something we do when somebody we care about dies. But there are many other reasons why we grieve. Smaller but similarly serious sorrows can include the loss of a job, a broken relationship, unmet expectations, frustration or disappointment because of failure, and so much more. 
    Two other subjects will also be discussed in this book. The first relates to handling PTSD in your marital relationship. If you are married to someone who has a traumatic disorder, there are many pieces of advice that can help you deal with that person and these side effects better. Another topic heavily emphasized in this book, is what’s called “survivor’s guilt.” It relates to people who have seen others die and wonder why they are still alive. Even though they might not be the cause of the other people’s deaths, they still have a feeling of guilt that tells them they got lucky and may feel they don’t deserve to be alive more than any other individual. This can be a real problem and can cause PTSD. 
    If any of these topics interest you, then I encourage you to start reading or listening to this book right now!

    Summary, Analysis, and Review of Brene Brown's Daring Greatly PLEASE NOTE: This is a key takeaways and analysis of the book and NOT the original book. Start Publishing Notes' Summary, Analysis, and Review of Brene Brown's Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead includes a summary of the book, review, analysis & key takeaways, and detailed About the Author section. PREVIEW: In Daring Greatly, Brene Brown expands her over twelve years of academic research on the anatomy of connection into a 250+ page how-to on engaging more fully with ourselves and our world. The title comes from a 1910 speech by Theodore Roosevelt, given at the Sorbonne after his presidency, about disavowing the non-participatory critics in favor of the man in the arena. Brown discusses where our fear of vulnerability comes from, why we protect ourselves, the price of disengagement, and owning and engaging with vulnerability to transform ourselves into better (if messier) beings.

    The Prince is a 16th-century political treatise by the Italian diplomat and political theorist Niccolò Machiavelli. However, the printed version was not published until 1532, five years after Machiavelli's death. Although The Prince was written as if it were a traditional work in the mirrors for princes style, it is generally agreed that it was especially innovative. This is partly because it was written in the vernacular Italian rather than Latin, a practice that had become increasingly popular since the publication of Dante's Divine Comedy and other works of Renaissance literature. The Prince is sometimes claimed to be one of the first works of modern philosophy, especially modern political philosophy, in which the "effectual" truth is taken to be more important than any abstract ideal. It is also notable for being in direct conflict with the dominant Catholic and scholastic doctrines of the time, particularly those concerning politics and ethics.
