"Insurgents and terrorists retain the resources and capabilities to sustain and even increase current level of violence through the next year." This was the secret Pentagon assessment sent to the White House in May 2006. The forecast of a more violent 2007 in Iraq contradicted the repeated optimistic statements of President Bush, including one, two days earlier, when he said we were at a "turning point" that history would mark as the time "the forces of terror began their long retreat." State of Denial examines how the Bush administration avoided telling the truth about... View more info

Condition: Near Fine Condition


Now that the old division of the world into the two power blocs of East and West has subsided, the great gap in wealth and health that separates North and South remains the single greatest problem and danger facing the world of the Third Millennium. The only challenge of comparable scope and difficulty is the threat of the environmental deterioration, and the two are intimately connected, indeed are one. David Landes argues that the North-South division is the great drama of our times, and that drama implies tension, passion, conflict and disappointment as well as happy outcomes. While Landes ...

Price: $15.00

Publisher: New Zealand, Auckland University Press: 1999

Seller ID: 226207

ISBN: 1869401840

Condition: Very Good Condition


This is a contribution to the debate surrounding the Treaty of Waitangi. A central theme is how a revolutionary taking of power by one people over another may be partly legitimated. Wrongs done to those who suffered the take-over must then be redressed with due allowance for new rights and interests that have resulted from it. Part 1 deals with the role of law in actual or threatened revolution, but especially in the revolutionary expansions of Western imperialism. In part 2 the focus is narrowed further: on the British Crown's seizure of power of Aotearoa-New Zealand from 1840, the counter-re... View more info
