Aquest llibre és imprescindible per a tots els interessats a Catalunya i a la seguretat europea.<br />Explica per què el govern de Puigdemont no va obtenir la independència amb la declaració unilateral el 27 d'octubre de 2017.<br />Explica per què les elits polítiques europees han donat l'esquena a Puigdemont.<br />Els mitjans de comunicació internacionals han estat massa predisposats per als pro-independentistes a la regió espanyola de Catalunya. Això contrasta enormement amb les reaccions dels principals líders i organitzacions internacionals.<br />Els mitjans de comunicació internacionals no han investigat el problema i han informat al públic.<br />Els mitjans de comunicació no han entès la forma de conflicte que els pro-independentistes han aplicat des de 1975 quan el general Franco va morir.<br />

<p>'The Rule of Law' is a phrase much used but little examined. The idea of the rule of law as the foundation of modern states and civilisations has recently become even more talismanic than that of democracy, but what does it actually consist of? </p><p>In this brilliant short book, Britain's former senior law lord, and one of the world's most acute legal minds, examines what the idea actually means. He makes clear that the rule of law is not an arid legal doctrine but is the foundation of a fair and just society, is a guarantee of responsible government, is an important contribution to economic growth and offers the best means yet devised for securing peace and co-operation. He briefly examines the historical origins of the rule, and then advances eight conditions which capture its essence as understood in western democracies today. He also discusses the strains imposed on the rule of law by the threat and experience of international terrorism. </p><p>The book will be influential in many different fields and should become a key text for anyone interested in politics, society and the state of our world.</p>

If you were in Rhodesia/Zimbabwe up until the late 1990s, you may remember a Bulawayo men’s fashion store in Abercorn Street – Paul of Carnaby Street -- which I owned.<br /><br />Since settling in Cape Town in 1988, I’ve written a book which tells how – living in Zimbabwe in the 1980s – I reinvented myself from a law-abiding, well-known owner of a leading men’s fashion store, into a smuggler – first of currency, and then gold – to circumvent Mugabe’s harsh exchange control regulations.<br /><br />After the South African authorities seized 38 kilograms of my smuggled gold, and having lost my initial challenge in the lower courts to have it returned to me, I finally succeeded – against all odds – in South Africa’s Supreme Court of Appeal. Instead of forfeiting my consignment, the Court ordered the South African Customs to return it to me and pay all costs, including that of transporting it to its intended destination, Switzerland.<br /><br />My account is generously sprinkled with interesting anecdotes, one of which is how I became a “fence” for liberation struggle leader, Joshua Nkomo’s foreign funds. This led to Mugabe’s Central Intelligence Agency (CIO) arresting me on suspicion that I had assisted Nkomo to escape from Zimbabwe in 1983 when tensions between the two black leaders threatened civil war. <br /><br />I recount moments spent with Sharon Stone and Richard Chamberlain (during the filming of King Solomon’s Mines in 1985) as well as with Ursula Andress and Jack Palance (during the filming of Africa Express in 1975), both at the Victoria Falls.<br /><br />My arrest in 1986 and the few days spent in an African jail prompted me to sell up and move to Cape Town. Back in Zimbabwe the following year for a brief stay, I had to make a final escape from custody, and now a wanted man, I have never been able to return.<br /><br />The success I had in the Appellate Division set a legal precedent which is recorded in South African Law Reports of 1992 as well as on the Internet:<br /><br />http://www.saflii.org/za/cases/ZASCA/1992/183.html<br /><br />My story reads like a crime thriller – except that it’s all true.<br /><br />Get your copy now.

<p>During the Nuremberg trials, Leon Goldensohn—a U.S. Army psychiatrist—monitored the mental health of two dozen Germans leaders charged with carrying out genocide. These recorded conversations went largely unexamined for more than fifty years, until Robert Gellately—one of the premier historians of Nazi Germany—made them available to the public in this remarkable collection. <br /><br /> Here are interviews with the likes of Hans Frank, Hermann Goering, Ernst Kaltenbrunner, and Joachim von Ribbentrop—the highest ranking Nazi officials in the Nuremberg jails. Here too are interviews with lesser-known officials essential to the inner workings of the Third Reich. Candid and often shockingly truthful, <i>The Nuremberg Interviews</i> is a profound addition to our understanding of the Nazi mind and mission.</p>

Why has U.S. security policy scarcely changed from the Bush to the Obama administration? <em>National Security and Double Government</em> offers a disquieting answer. Michael J. Glennon challenges the myth that U.S. security policy is still forged by America's visible, "Madisonian institutions" - the President, Congress, and the courts. Their roles, he argues, have become largely illusory. Presidential control is now nominal, congressional oversight is dysfunctional, and judicial review is negligible. The book details the dramatic shift in power that has occurred from the Madisonian institutions to a concealed "Trumanite network" - the several hundred managers of the military, intelligence, diplomatic, and law enforcement agencies who are responsible for protecting the nation and who have come to operate largely immune from constitutional and electoral restraints. Reform efforts face daunting obstacles. Remedies within this new system of "double government" require the hollowed-out Madisonian institutions to exercise the very power that they lack. Meanwhile, reform initiatives from without confront the same pervasive political ignorance within the polity that has given rise to this duality. The book sounds a powerful warning about the need to resolve this dilemma-and the mortal threat posed to accountability, democracy, and personal freedom if double government persists.

<P>Some have claimed that "War is too important to be left to the generals," but P. W. Singer asks "What about the business executives?" Breaking out of the guns-for-hire mold of traditional mercenaries, corporations now sell skills and services that until recently only state militaries possessed. Their products range from trained commando teams to strategic advice from generals. This new "Privatized Military Industry" encompasses hundreds of companies, thousands of employees, and billions of dollars in revenue. Whether as proxies or suppliers, such firms have participated in wars in Africa, Asia, the Balkans, and Latin America. More recently, they have become a key element in U.S. military operations. Private corporations working for profit now sway the course of national and international conflict, but the consequences have been little explored.</p><P>In <em>Corporate Warriors</em>, Singer provides the first account of the military services industry and its broader implications. Corporate Warriors includes a description of how the business works, as well as portraits of each of the basic types of companies: military providers that offer troops for tactical operations; military consultants that supply expert advice and training; and military support companies that sell logistics, intelligence, and engineering.</p><P>This updated edition of Singer's already classic account of the military services industry and its broader implications describes the continuing importance of that industry in the Iraq War. This conflict has amply borne out Singer's argument that the privatization of warfare allows startling new capabilities and efficiencies in the ways that war is carried out. At the same time, however, Singer finds that the introduction of the profit motive onto the battlefield raises troubling questions-for democracy, for ethics, for management, for human rights, and for national security.</p>
