Summary

"You can take down an individual, you can take down an organization, but you can't destroy a movement." Paul Watson 

Captain Paul Watson, honored with the Jules Verne Award for his environmental activism in 2012, is a fighter with a clear mission: to protect the world's oceans from illegal exploitation and environmental destruction.
"If the oceans die, we die." For decades, Paul Watson has risked his life for the conservation and well-being of marine life. At the age of 27, he founded the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. In 1978, the Sea Shepherd became the first ship of the now world-famous fleet with the Jolly Roger flag, modified with a trident and shepherd's crook. In a new expanded edition, including a second interview and numerous extraordinary images from the Sea Shepherd archives, Watson vividly recounts the exciting stages of his unique life, opening up an exclusive insight into his highly politicized arrest in Frankfurt in 2012 and his adventurous escape that sent him on a nerve-wracking journey filled with storms and obstacles.

    Why we need to think more like economists to successfully combat terrorism 
    If we are to correctly assess the root causes of terrorism and successfully address the threat, we must think more like economists do. This is the argument of Alan Krueger's What Makes a Terrorist, a book that explains why our tactics in the fight against terrorism must be based on more than anecdote, intuition, and speculation. 
    Many popular ideas about terrorists and why they seek to harm us are fueled by falsehoods, misinformation, and fearmongering. Many believe that poverty and lack of education breed terrorism, despite the wealth of evidence showing that most terrorists come from middle-class, and often college-educated, backgrounds. Krueger closely examines the factors that motivate individuals to participate in terrorism, drawing inferences from terrorists' own backgrounds and the economic, social, religious, and political environments in the societies from which they come. 
    He describes which countries are the most likely breeding grounds for terrorists, and which ones are most likely to be their targets. Krueger addresses the economic and psychological consequences of terrorism and puts the threat squarely into perspective, revealing how our nation's sizable economy is diverse and resilient enough to withstand the comparatively limited effects of most terrorist strikes. He also calls on the media to be more responsible in reporting on terrorism. 
    Bringing needed clarity to one of the greatest challenges of our generation, this 10th anniversary edition of What Makes a Terrorist features a new introduction by the author that discusses the lessons learned in the past decade from the rise of ISIS and events like the 2016 Pulse nightclub attack in Orlando, Florida.

    This award-winning study traces the shifting relations between Israel, Iran, and the U.S. since 1948—including secret alliances and treacherous acts. Vitriolic exchanges between the leaders of Iran and Israel are a disturbingly common feature of the news cycle. But the real roots of their enmity mystify Washington policymakers, leaving no promising pathways to stability. In Treacherous Alliance, U.S. foreign policy expert Trita Parsi untangles to complex and often duplicitous relationship among Israel, Iran, and the United States from 1948 to the present. In the process, he reveals shocking details of unsavory political maneuverings that have undermined Middle Eastern peace and disrupted U.S. foreign policy initiatives in the region.   Parsi draws on his unique access to senior American, Iranian, and Israeli decision makers to present behind-the-scenes revelations that will surprise even the most knowledgeable readers: Iran’s prime minister asks Israel to assassinate Khomeini; Israel reaches out to Saddam Hussein after the Gulf War; the United States foils Iran’s plan to withdraw support from Hamas and Hezbollah; and more. Treacherous Alliance not only revises our understanding of the recent past, it also spells out a course for the future.An Arthur Ross Book Award Silver Medal Winner A Choice Magazine Outstanding Academic Title

    Alongside the open conflict of World War II there were other, hidden wars - the wars of communication, in which success depended on a flow of concealed and closely guarded information.Smuggled written messages, secretly transmitted wireless signals, or months of eavesdropping on radio traffic meant operatives could discover in advance what the enemy intended to do. This information was passed on to those who commanded the armies, the fleets and the bomber formations, as well as to the other secret agents throughout the world who were desperately trying to infiltrate enemy lines. Vital information that turned the tide of battle in North African desert and on the Pacific Ocean proved to have been obtained by the time-consuming and unglamorous work of cryptanalysts who deciphered the enemy's coded messages, and coded those for the Allies.From the stuffy huts of Bletchley Park to the battles in the Mediterranean, the French and Dutch Resistance movements and the unkempt radio operatives in Burma, the rarely-seen, outstanding stories collected here reveal the true extent of the 'secret war'.The ongoing need for secrecy for decades after the war meant that the outstanding achievements of wartime cryptanalysts could not be properly recognised.With vivid first-hand accounts and illuminating historical research, VOICES OF THE CODEBREAKERS reveals and finally celebrates the extraordinary accomplishments of these ordinary men and women.

    An activist and a philosopher discuss how privatization harms society and how we can challenge it. 
     
    Privatization has been on the right-wing agenda for years. Health care, schools, Social Security, public lands, the military, prisons—all are considered fair game. Through stories, analysis, impassioned argument—even song lyrics—Si Kahn and Elizabeth Minnich show that corporations are, by their very nature, unable to fulfill effectively what have traditionally been the responsibilities of the government. They make a powerful case that the market is not the measure of all things, and that a vital public sector is an indispensable component of a healthy democracy. 
     
    “If you care about your children’s education, the quality of the air you breathe and the water you drink, affordable health care or Social Security, you need to read The Fox in the Henhouse…. Kahn and Minnich have given us a blueprint of how to organize now and protect our country and our future.” —Jan Schakowsky, U.S. House of Representatives 
     
    “The Fox in the Henhouse…provides analytic tools for challenging corporate America’s sale of democracy, honors legacies of resistance, and moves us to a vision of hope and action challenging the privatization of our lives and dreams.” —Chandra Talpade Mohanty, educator and author of Feminism Without Borders 
     
    “Inspiring to read, this book will be of great value to organizers, activists, and citizens of conscience…. Nothing less than our democracy is at stake when extremists want to roll back our hard-earned rights. [This book] offers a spirited blueprint for all citizens who care about renewing America’s best and most generous traditions.” —Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor, The Nation

    Kingdom Politics | Kingdom Culture | Kingdom CitizenshipKingdom YOU  
    The agenda and business of every Kingdom Citizen is to institute ‘Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven’, Matthew 6:10. 
    You and God working together. Handling earth the same way God handles heaven.  
    Kingdom You cleverly lays out in a uniquely political way (marrying it to the government of the United Kingdom) almost everything a Kingdom Citizen needs to know about the Kingdom of God: its rulership, its formation, principles, governance, laws, policies, what the Kingdom is meant to look like and the Kingdom mandate. It does this without ever assuming any prior political knowledge or even the need to like politics at all (who does?).  
    Kingdom You then helps the Kingdom citizen to understand what Kingdom Politics, Kingdom Culture and Kingdom Citizenship really means to them. That true citizenship encompasses two parts: leisure and business.  
    The premises are simple:  
    1. The Kingdom lives inside of you. You are actually the Kingdom. The Kingdom is You. The Kingdom of God is truly a government of the people, by the people and for the people.  
    2. Who you were created to be and what you were created to do: your purpose, your gifts and your talents were all given to you for a special reason. That through you and through your job the Kingdom of God would be manifested as you cultivate Kingdom Culture and set Kingdom standards within that specific sphere of society.  
    3. Consequently, by us all living according to Kingdom policies, participating in the Kingdom, sharing the Kingdom and encouraging Kingdom growth, we effectively become what Chibuzor Tina has coined ‘Crowned Politicians’. Realise How Powerful YOU Are 
    Realise that YOU are to live naturally supernatural
