Description:
Chennai, India: Indian National Trust For Art And Cultural Heritage, Tamil Nadu Chapter, 2003. Trade Paperback. First edition (stated). Slight bump at top of spine, otherwise pristine inside and out. Not from a library. Not remainder mark. Not clipped. 348 pages.Several Indian cities that were born as a result of colonization served as showcases of the power of the colonizer, manifest in huge buildings, wide roads, large green parks and other infrastructure. Their architecture, though early on a pure model of established Classical and other European styles, eventually gave way to a refined combination of strong local traditions. Madras, one of the first major seats of the British, is one such town that has grown rapidly, but unfortunately at the stake of its heritage. Its vast architectural wealth, including the fine examples of the Indo-Saracenic style - that was a marriage between the Hindu and the Islamic styles - is fast vanishing.This richly illustrated volume offers an insight into what remains… Read more

Description:
New York: Alfred A. Knopf. Hardcover. 2006. First Edition (stated). Near Fine book in a Near Fine jacket. Interior pristine. Spine straight and tight. Spine ends and corners lightly bumped. Edgewear to jacket. 527 pages.A major reevaluation of America's place in the world from the colonial era to the turn of the twentieth century. Kagan strips away the myth of America's isolationist tradition and reveals a more complicated reality: that Americans have been increasing their global power and influence steadily for the past four centuries. Even from the time of the Puritans, America was no shining "city up on a hill" but an engine of commercial and territorial expansion that drove Native Americans, as well as French, Spanish, Russian, and ultimately even British power, from the North American continent. Even before the birth of the nation, Americans believed they were destined for global leadership. Underlying their ambitions was a set of ideas and ideals about the world and human nature. Kagan focuses… Read more

Not from a library. 584 pages.The United States has used military force short of war as an instrument of diplomacy on many occasions and in many areas of the world in the years since the Second World War. This book describes and analyzes the circumstances accompanying 215 shows of force and examines how effective these actions were in helping to attain U.S. foreign policy objectives. Which type of force (air, ground, naval) was most often used? What did the forces do and how effective were they? Of what significance was Soviet involvement when U.S. military power was called upon to influence events? Was the threat presented by the alerting or deployment of strategic nuclear forces or by very large conventional forces especially telling? How clear is it that a… Read more

Cover clean and bright. Not from a library. Remainder mark. x vi + 333 pages. Here is the untold story of an inbred, gifted, and powerful elite of families and friends who dominated America's relations with the Middle East for over a century. Known to Foreign Service colleagues as "the Arabists" these were the men and women who had spent much of their lives, usually with their families, living in the Arab world as diplomats, military attaches, intelligence agents, and educators. Descended from the missionaries, scholars, and explorers who first ventured into the region--an offshoot of the WASP elite that ruled America during the nineteenth century--the Arabists were an exclusive caste linked by complex social, institutional, and family ties. Thoroughly at home in Arab cultures and often enjoying relations of longstanding… Read more

New York: Vintage. Trade Paperback. 1997. Very Good. Gift inscription on half-title page. Text unmarked. Spine straight, tight, and uncreased. 413 pages. A pithy and practical casebook on our shrinking right to privacy. The Fourth Amendment, protecting against unreasonable seizures, does not necessarily prevent an arrested person from being strip-searched, and the authors consider a welter of legal and ethical dilemmas involving the clashing interests of people who wish to be left alone and employers, police and the press, whose jobs may make them intrusive. The use of metal detectors and drug tests in schools and workplaces, women's right to abortion and contraception, people suing to squelch reporting by the media, patients' right to refuse further medical treatment or to undergo assisted suicide, and claims against voyeurs are among the issues and conflicts discussed. Also examined are new privacy conflicts arising in the workplace as employers, facing rising health insurance costs and increased… Read more

Description:
Santa Monica, California: Clover Park Press, 1995. Hardcover. As New book in an As New jacket. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not damaged. Perfect condition. 289 pages. In the first months of 1964, five female Peace Corps Volunteers went on a journey. They moved a step at a time, from the last place to the next, 4,000 miles from Liberia across the continent and the great Sahara Desert to Algiers. This book is the story of the somewhat random intrusion of the transient selves upon each other and upon the people among whom they passed. Like the Harmattan winds that accompanied them, they moved through each place, stirring it a little, taking a part of it, and leaving a part of ourselves behind. It was a period of hopefulness for them and for the young African nations they visitied. Colonialism was passing, everything was possible. They lived in the present, intensely, learning, testing, improvising their way. In the crucible of Africa they faced the unknown and met themselves. It was a wonderful time.
