Award-winning, bestselling writer Jane Urquhart? ’s eagerly expected new novel is a powerful accomplishment and her most powerful so far.

Gordon Skilling writes candidly of every manner station during this own odyssey: the idealism of his pupil years on the college of Toronto and Oxford; his presence in Czechoslovakia at the eve of the Nazi, and later Soviet, invasions; his competition to the Marshall Plan, NATO, and U. S. intervention in Korea; the impact of McCarthyism on his educational lifestyles; his involvement with the Czech and Slovak dissident activities and at last the Velvet Revolution.
In No Justice, No Peace David Rapaport makes use of aspect, insights, and anecdotes from over one hundred fifty interviews - with wooden line captains, neighborhood executives, union management, newshounds, mediators, and union and administration negotiators between others - to supply an insider's view of the strike and its political and fiscal contexts, usually informed within the strikers' personal voices.

39 The French Revolution embodied both aspects of the Enlightenment: the high ideals of the Declaration of the Rights of Man coexisted with the power of terror, and both were promulgated by revolutionary wars that quickly took on imperial aims with the rise of Napoleon. These revolutionary tensions yielded changes over the battlefield, in the work-place, and in military institutions. In April 1794, for the first time, a company of aerostiers successfully used a balloon to observe the battle of Fleurus in Belgium; throughout the early 1790s 'manufactories' were built according to principles found in the Encyclopedie, which called for close observation rather than coercion of the work-force; and in military schools, barracks and hospitals a new architecture was developing, based on a monastic model of spatial distribution.
But lest the partiality of this inquiry be mistaken as yet another exercise in an unselfconscious Eurocentrism, it is necessary to reiterate that it is the Western technostrategic models of intelligence and theory that have become, for better or worse, the global form. Who then, were these supposed ur-theorists and ur-intelligencers, the first agents, in other words, to form systems of knowledge in the service of state power? I believe that the etymological and historical evidence would point to the theoros and the proxenos of the Greek city-states.
It is as if, after the Second World War, the West absorbed Ernest May's 'lessons' taken from the pre-1939 period, and constructed an intelligence apparatus designed to correct the errors of the pre-nuclear era, and institutionalize objective, inductive assessment, free of damaging political preconceptions. 16 But that new empirically sensitive apparatus was, in fact, in one centrally important way, overtaken by the technology of the ballistic nuclear-armed missile. As the nuclear delivery potential of the adversary grew, it became necessary to increase the sensitivity of the intelligence effort, and move the American nuclear arsenal ever closer to a hair-trigger pre-emptive launch.
