The Blair Years: Extracts from the Alistair Campbell Diaries, Alastair Campbell and Richard Stott [Editor]
7 Alastair Campbell and Richard Stott [Editor] The Blair Years: Extracts from the Alistair Campbell Diaries
Hutchinson 239960 Australia 2007 0091796296 / 9780091796297 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good The "Blair Years" is the most compelling and revealing account of contemporary politics you will ever read. Taken from Alastair Campbell's daily diaries, it charts the rise of New Labour and the tumultuous years of Tony Blair's leadership, providing the first important record of a remarkable decade in our national life. Here are the defining events of our time, from Labour's new dawn to the war on terror, from the death of Diana to negotiations for peace in Northern Ireland, from Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq, through to the Hutton Inquiry of 2003, the year Campbell resigned his position at No 10. But above all here is Tony Blair up close and personal, taking the decisions that affected the lives of millions, under relentless and often hostile pressure. Often described as the second most powerful figure in Britain, Alastair Campbell is no stranger to controversy. Feared and admired in equal measure, hated by some, he was pivotal to the founding of New Labour and the sensational election victory of 1997. As Blair's press secretary, strategist and trusted confidant, Campbell spent more waking hours alongside the Prime Minister than anyone. His diaires - at times brutally frank, often funny, always compelling - take the reader right to the heart of government. "The Blair Years" is a story of politics in the raw, of progress and setback, of reputations made and destroyed, under the relentless scrutiny of a 24-hour media. Unflinchingly told, it covers the crises and scandals, the rows and resignations, the ups and downs of Britain's hothouse politics. But amid the big events are insights and observations that make this a remarkably human portrayal of some of the most powerful people in the world. There has never been so riveting a book about life at the very top, nor a more human book about politics, told by a man who saw it all. 794 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs.

Death of a Dissident: The Poisoning of Alexander Litvinenko and the Return of the KGB, Alex Goldfarb with Marina Litvinenko
9 Alex Goldfarb with Marina Litvinenko Death of a Dissident: The Poisoning of Alexander Litvinenko and the Return of the KGB
Pocket Books 239696 Great Britain 2008 Updated 1847391079 / 9781847391070 Softcover Very Good Condition The first reports seemed absurd. A Russian dissident, formerly an employee of the KGB and its successor, the FSB, had seemingly been poisoned in a London hotel. As Alexander Litvinenko's condition worsened, however, and he was transferred to hospital and placed under armed guard, the story took a sinister turn. On 23 November 2006, Litvinenko died, apparently from polonium-210 radiation poisoning. He himself, in a dramatic statement from his deathbed, accused his former employers at the Kremlin of being responsible for his murder. Who was Alexander Litvinenko? What had happened in Russia since the end of the Cold War to make his life there untenable, and even in severe jeopardy in Britain? How did he really die, and who killed him? In his spokesman and close friend, Alex Goldfarb, and widow Marina, we have two people who know more than anyone about the real Sasha Litvinenko, and about his murder. Their riveting book sheds astonishing light not just on these strange and troubling events but also on the biggest crisis in relations with Russia since the fall of the Berlin Wall. 396 pages.

The military successes of European imperialism are easy to explain; in many cases they were a matter of firearms against spears.

The Price of Terror: How the Families of the Victims of PAN AM 103 Brought Libya to Justice, Allan Gerson and Jery Adler
14 Allan Gerson and Jery Adler The Price of Terror: How the Families of the Victims of PAN AM 103 Brought Libya to Justice
HarperCollins 238174 USA 2001 0060197617 / 9780060197612 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.

Birkhauser 247399 Germany 2008 3764386355 / 9783764386351 Softcover Very Good Condition We are not only living longer than our grandparents - we are also working longer and remaining more active and enterprising than they did. Thus for many today the second half of life is marked by a broad and varied range of activities that call for freedom of action, whether one has a disability or other limitation or not. What types of housing will make it possible to shape this ever longer and more important phase of our lives in accord with our wishes and needs? In addition to the desire of most older people to remain in their homes, we are also seeing the emergence of new and novel communal types of housing, such as neighborhood and cohousing communities, shared apartments, integrated residential communities, assisted living, and group homes. Against this backdrop, noted authors consider the various aspects of the second phase of life. In addition, realized projects in Switzerland and Germany are presented and analyzed in terms of their practical feasibility. Andreas Huber has been studying the phenomenon of international retirement migration for a number of years. His primary research focuses are demography, dwelling in old age, quality development, and evaluation. He is the director of the CTI research project Neue Wohnmodelle fur die zweite Lebenshalfte (New Housing Models for the Second Half of Life) and the author of numerous books on the subject. 223 pages.
