Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book offers a fresh analysis of constitutional, economic, demographic and cultural developments in the overseas territories of Britain, France, the Netherlands, Denmark, Spain, the United States, Australia and New Zealand. Ranging from Greenland to Gibraltar, the Falklands to the Faroes, and encompassing islands in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans, and the Caribbean, these territories command attention because of their unique status, and for the ways that they occasionally become flashpoints for rival international claims, dubious financial activities, illegal migration and clashes between metropolitan and local mores. Connell and Aldrich argue that a negotiated dependency brings greater benefits to these territories than might independence.

Book excerpt: Focusing on Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, specifically the Northern Areas and Azad Jammu, this exploration discusses three major impacts on the area’s future development: the 2005 earthquake, the post-9/11 surge in jihad activities, and sectarian violence in Gilgit and Baltistan. The arguments investigate what these three recent occurrences mean to the area’s national security, international presence and reputation, and human rights. The essays feature sample plans, guidelines, and protocols for optimal deployment and expansion of the community-based resources necessary for constructive progression.

Book excerpt: Hard-core military science fiction at its very best, John Scalzi's The Last Colony is the third in The Old Man's War series. They must save themselves – or die trying. John Perry was living peacefully on one of humanity's colonies – until he and his wife were offered an opportunity these ex-supersoldiers couldn't resist. To come out of retirement and lead a new frontier world. However, once on the planet, they discover they've been betrayed. For this colony is a pawn in an interstellar game of war and diplomacy. Humanity's Colonial Union has pitched itself against a new, seemingly unstoppable alien alliance, dedicated to ending all human colonization. As this contest rages above, Perry struggles to keep his terrified colonists alive on the surface below – despite dangerous interstellar politics, violence and treachery. And the planet has yet to reveal its own fatal secrets. Continue the gripping space war series with Zoe's Tale.

Book excerpt: THE INSTANT SUNDAY TIMES TOP 10 BESTSELLER After the Second World War, new international rules heralded an age of human rights and self-determination. Supported by Britain, these unprecedented changes sought to end the scourge of colonialism. But how committed was Britain? In the 1960s, its colonial instinct ignited once more: a secret decision was taken to offer the US a base at Diego Garcia, one of the islands of the Chagos Archipelago in the Indian Ocean, create a new colony (the 'British Indian Ocean Territory') and deport the entire local population. One of those inhabitants was Liseby Elysé, twenty years old, newly married, expecting her first child. One suitcase, no pets, the British ordered, expelling her from the only home she had ever known. For four decades the government of Mauritius fought for the return of Chagos, and the past decade Philippe Sands has been intimately involved in the cases. In 2018 Chagos and colonialism finally reached the World Court in The Hague. As Mauritius and the entire African continent challenged British and American lawlessness, fourteen international judges faced a landmark decision: would they rule that Britain illegally detached Chagos from Mauritius? Would they open the door to Liseby Elysé and her fellow Chagossians returning home - or exile them forever? Taking us on a disturbing journey across international law, THE LAST COLONY illuminates the continuing horrors of colonial rule, the devastating impact of Britain's racist grip on its last colony in Africa, and the struggle for justice in the face of a crime against humanity. It is a tale about the making of modern international law and one woman's fight for justice, a courtroom drama and a personal journey that ends with a historic ruling.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Scotland is the largest producer of oil and is the second largest producer of gas in Europe. It has more than an eighty per cent share of UK’s North Sea assets and holds more fresh, high quality water in one of its 250,000 lochs, Loch Ness than is available in all of the lakes in England and Wales. When Scotland is compared with other smaller nations within the European community such as Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Ireland, Iceland, Rumania, Finland, Austria or Portugal, it has more natural resources within its boundaries but often has poorer economic performance, tied as it is to its larger, colonialist neighbour to the south. Scotland is Britain’s last colony but as the world entered the twenty-first century, Scottish Independence was on the rise. It threatened the status quo of the Establishment, the economy and the resources available to the United Kingdom. It had to be put down...hard. MI5 were instructed to act to save the Union and retain Scotland, the last British colony, as a servile British colony shackled to Westminster.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: After decades of bloodshed and political terror, many lament the rise of the left in Latin America. Since the triumph of Castro, politicians and historians have accused the left there of rejecting democracy, embracing communist totalitarianism, and prompting both revolutionary violence and a right-wing backlash. Through unprecedented archival research and gripping personal testimonies, Greg Grandin powerfully challenges these views in this classic work. In doing so, he uncovers the hidden history of the Latin American Cold War: of hidebound reactionaries holding on to their power and privilege; of Mayan Marxists blending indigenous notions of justice with universal ideas of equality; and of a United States supporting new styles of state terror throughout the region. With Guatemala as his case study, Grandin argues that the Latin American Cold War was a struggle not between political liberalism and Soviet communism but two visions of democracy—one vibrant and egalitarian, the other tepid and unequal—and that the conflict’s main effect was to eliminate homegrown notions of social democracy. Updated with a new preface by the author and an interview with Naomi Klein, The Last Colonial Massacre is history of the highest order—a work that will dramatically recast our understanding of Latin American politics and the role of the United States in the Cold War and beyond. “This work admirably explains the process in which hopes of democracy were brutally repressed in Guatemala and its people experienced a civil war lasting for half a century.”—International History Review “A richly detailed, humane, and passionately subversive portrait of inspiring reformers tragically redefined by the Cold War as enemies of the state.”—Journal of American History

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Colonial World: A History of European Empires, 1780s to the Present provides the most authoritative, in-depth overview on European imperialism available. It synthesizes recent developments in the study of European empires and provides new perspectives on European colonialism and the challenges to it. With a post-1800 focus and extensive background coverage tracing the subject to the early 1700s, the book charts the rise and eclipse of European empires. Robert Aldrich and Andreas Stucki integrate innovative approaches and findings from the 'new imperial history' and look at both the colonial era and the legacies it left behind for countries around the world after they gained independence. Dividing the text into three complementary sections, Aldrich and Stucki offer an original approach to the subject that allows you to explore: - Different eras of colonisation and decolonisation from early modern European colonialism to the present day - Overarching themes in colonial history, like 'land and sea', 'the body' and 'representations of colonialism' - A global range of snapshot colonial case studies, such as Peru (1780), India (1876), The South Pacific (1903), the Dutch East Indies (1938) and the Portuguese empire in Africa (1971) This is the essential text for anyone seeking to understand the nature and complexities of modern European imperialism and its aftermath.

This book was released on 2012-02-29 with total page 304 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The island of Puerto Rico suffers from a stagnant economy, devastating unemployment, and severely limited political autonomy. In this book, Collado- Schwarz addresses Puerto Rico’s more than a century-old relationship with the United States and presents compelling strategies for gaining independence. Through a series of interviews and newspaper columns, the author examines six countries similar in size to Puerto Rico that have all successfully navigated a course to sovereignty: Singapore, Ireland, Israel, New Zealand, Estonia, and Slovenia. Collado-Schwarz chronicles the political history of each country, the ways in which each achieved independence, and what lessons can be applied to Puerto Rico. With cogent analysis and carefully reasoned arguments, this book will reopen the national dialogue in the United States about the future of Puerto Rico.
