Book excerpt: Guns of the Dawn is a pacey, gripping fantasy of war and magic, from Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning author, Adrian Tchaikovsky. ‘One of the best books I've ever read’ – Peter Newman, author of The Vagrant The first casualty of war is truth . . . First, Denland’s revolutionaries assassinated their king, launching a wave of bloodshed after generations of peace. Next they clashed with Lascanne, their royalist neighbour, pitching war-machines against warlocks in a fiercely fought conflict. Genteel Emily Marshwic watched as the hostilities stole her family’s young men. But then came the call for yet more Lascanne soldiers in a ravaged kingdom with none left to give. Emily must join the ranks of conscripted women and march toward the front lines. With barely enough training to hold a musket, Emily braves the savage reality of warfare. But she begins to doubt her country's cause, and those doubts become critical. For her choices will determine her own future and that of two nations locked in battle. ‘An engrossing story, beautifully told’ – SFX ‘Moving, gripping and wonderfully paced’ – The Bookbag
Download or read book International Law and Drone Strikes in Pakistan written by Sikander Ahmed Shah and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2014-11-13 with total page 247 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: While conventional warfare has an established body of legal precedence, the legality of drone strikes by the United States in Pakistan and elsewhere remains ambiguous. This book explores the legal and political issues surrounding the use of drones in Pakistan. Drawing from international treaty law, customary international law, and statistical data on the impact of the strikes, Sikander Ahmed Shah asks whether drone strikes by the United States in Pakistan are in compliance with international humanitarian law. The book questions how international law views the giving of consent between States for military action, and explores what this means for the interaction between sovereignty and consent. The book goes on to look at the socio-political realities of drone strikes in Pakistan, scrutinizing the impact of drone strikes on both Pakistani politics and US-Pakistan relationships. Topics include the Pakistan army-government relationship, the evolution of international institutions as a result of drone strikes, and the geopolitical dynamics affecting the region. As a detailed and critical examination of the legal and political challenges presented by drone strikes, this book will be essential to scholars and students of the law of armed conflict, security studies, political science and international relations.
Download or read book Black Camelot s Dawn written by Darius Myers and published by Fero Scitus. This book was released on 2021-12-02 with total page 277 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: THE BLACK BILLIONAIRE AND HIS FRIENDS ARE MARKED FOR ASSASSINATION --- AND THE NOTORIOUS TRIGGER WOMAN MADAME HOT TEMPER IS BACK. THESE ARE DEADLY TIMES IN GOTHAM. NO ONE IS SAFE, ESPECIALLY NOW THAT WHITE SUPREMACISTS HAVE BEEN DISPATCHED TO THE BIG CITY WITH A MISSION. THEY'VE COME TO TERRORIZE GOTHAM AND END THE ERA OF BLACK CAMELOT. Black Camelot's Dawn is the sequel to The Publisher's Dilemma and the second novel in the Black Camelot series. Donald Alexander, Kwame Mills, and Samantha Rivers after the solving of The Harris Simmons Murders have become darlings of the city. They also have become extremely wealthy after Alexander's successful sale of the company for $75 billion. The dramatic stories of Alexander, Mills and Samantha Rivers, the illegitimate mixed-race daughter of deceased company CEO Cornwall Harris, have captivated the city and led the city's leading gossip press team, the Celebrity Hack Patrol, to name this period of adulation and fascination, the city’s Black Camelot. A new enemy emerges as century-old white supremacist groups decide that there is no place in the city or American society for black royals, and they become targets of groups intent on their assassination. Unbeknownst to the hate groups, the Black Camelot crew of Alexander, Mills and Rivers are admitted as members of the country's most secret and exclusive society, an organization that gives them protection against deadly and dark forces. The Society also gives them power held only by top world leaders. Black Camelot's Dawn also marks the return of Dawn Davis Stuart, who left the city in disgrace after she murdered her husband, the real estate tycoon and randy man about town, Yancey Stuart Jr. The shooting death at her hands earned her the notorious nickname of Madame Hot Temper. The backstory that drove her to rage and murder was not as simple as the scandal was reported.

Book excerpt: In 1992, Mark Wyden, a youngish professor, is driven into social isolation because of his stubborn and politically incorrect worldview. Ironically, this fish out of water is driven by his deep sense of alienation and loneliness into creating a private fantasy world. He’s contracted with a brilliant eccentric inventor friend, to be a human guinea pig for testing a new machine. But the unexpected happens, and during the experiment, the course of his life, and eventually of the world, is altered. This novel traces the events that lead this tortured man out of his late-twentieth century obscurity into the distant future. It chronicles his adventures through the chaotic new world order of the turbulent twenty-first century, and it follows his quest for survival beyond that era into a new civilization built on the ruins of his own. Facing personal dangers, Wyden is forced to learn the art of courageous action. He makes shocking discoveries that vindicate the pursuits of his previous stubborn isolation.
Download or read book The Proud Man written by Dell Shannon and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2014-11-21 with total page 240 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: 'My favourite American crime-writer' New York Herald Tribune In the sixteenth century lived two queens about whom much has been written: Elizabeth Tudor and Mary Stuart. However, there are more than just two countries in the British Isles and there is a third monarch, of whom there are no tales. This is his story. All major characters in this novel bar two were real people. If chronology has not always been followed too strictly, it is because all this is long ago and far away and does not matter now. This is only a story for reading, but it is a true story.

Book excerpt: This rare primary source account is the story of the hard fighting battalion of the 7th Northumberland Fusiliers, which saw action on the Somme, Passchendaele and in the Battle of Arras. This wonderfully detailed account provides a rare insight into the experiences of the common soldier on the front line during some of the bitterest conflicts of the war. Unembellished and unwavering in his account, Francis Buckley here records not only the events of the battles he fought in, but also provides an emotional tribute to the heroism of the friends he made and lost during his time in the field. As well as his fellow troops of the 7th Northumberland Fusiliers, Buckley also remembers, with great fondness, the bravery of the officers and men of the 149th Infantry Brigade, and of the 50th Division. His recollections here provide a poignant reminder of the true human cost of war in the modern age.
