The Final Move Beyond Iraq

By Mike Evans

Front Line / Stirling Company, USA, 2007. Trade Paperback. Very Good Condition. In The Final Move Beyond Iraq, Mike Evans addresses the greatest threat America has faced since the Civil War: the Islamic revolution, or Islamofascism. While the United States debates the best way to solve the situation in Iraq, the terrorists are claiming victory and planning to take their show to American soil once again. Drawing from extensive interviews with prime ministers, CIA directors, and other insiders, Evans looks at the history and ideology behind the Islamic revolution to explore its very real threat to U.S. interests --why radical Islamic terrorists will only step back when they fear us, why victory in Iraq is important to U.S. security, why the United States and Israel cannot sit idly by and let Iran achieve its desire for nuclear weapons, and why stabilization in Iraq now would sound defeat rather than victory. The Final Move Beyond Iraq is a wake-up call to mobilize millions to action. America is fighting for its life in the first war of the twenty-first century. 344 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

The Price of Terror: How the Families of the Victims of PAN AM 103 Brought Libya to Justice

By Allan Gerson and Jery Adler

HarperCollins, USA, 2001. Trade Paperback. Very Good Condition. President Bill Clinton called it "an attack against America," but after Libyan agents planted a bomb aboard Pan Am Flight 103, killing 259 people in the air and 11 on the ground, America did not strike back. Instead, the grieving relatives of the victims did the unthinkable -- as mere civilians-and tried to force Libya to pay for its crime. Lawyers told the families that they could never sue Libya in American courts, and they were right. This would require changing a bedrock principle of international law -- a change that every government in the world feared and fought, including the United States itself. Working virtually alone at first, Allan Gerson, a former diplomat and prosecutor of Nazi war criminals, took on the case and spent the next eight years on the families' quest for justice. In this high-stakes game of international power politics and legal maneuvering, there were friendships, jobs, and reputations lost, but a precious principle -- that of accountability under the law -- was strengthened and preserved. Now Gerson and his co-author, NEWSWEEK writer Jerry Adler, follow the threads of this extraordinary tale back to that deadly night over Lockerbie, Scotland -- and forward into a new era of international justice, when terrorists will learn to fear the righteous retribution of their own victims. 322 pages.

By Noam Chomsky

Allen & Unwin, Australia, 2001. Softcover. Very Good Condition. Is the 'war on terrorism' winnable? If yes, how?Intelligent bombs in Iraq, humanitarian intervention in Kosovo. The USA never used the word 'war' to describe that. Now they are talking about war against a nameless enemy. Why?Are Arabs, by definition, necessarily funadmentalist, the West's new enemy?In this timely book Noam Chomsky uses his impeccable knowledge of United States foreign policy in the Middle East and South Asia to shed light on the rapidly shifting balance of world power. His wide ranging comments on the new 'war on terrorism', Osama Bin-Laden, US involvement with Afghanistan and the long term implications of America's military attacks abroad are informed, perceptive and provocative.Speaking out against responding to violence with violence, Chomsky hopes that an aroused public within the more free and democratic societies can direct policies towards a much more humane and honourable course.Noam Chomsky is a world renowned political activist, writer and professor of linguistics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he has taught since 1955. Chomsky has written and lectured widely on linguistics, philosophy, and politics and his efforts for greater democracy are celebrated by peace and social justice he mainstream press, and why is it important that they be paid more attention. 125 pages.
