Native Americans have fought gallantly in every conflict since the War for Independence, mostly under the stars and stripes, but some under the stars and bars of the Confederacy. That said, the greatest contribution of Native Americans in wartime was their use as code talkers during World Wars I and II. This book chronicles the experiences of these men in both wars.

The collection at hand is a subjective, but representative selection of articles in German and English on the representation of bellicose acts in modern times.The wide range of wars treated in these essays begins with the Canudos Civil War in the Brazilian state of Bahia in 1896-97. The various articles include new perceptions and interpretations of the First World War, the Spanish Civil War of 1936-39, the Holocaust, the Second World War, the Korean War, the wars in the former Portuguese colonies of Africa, and the Balkan Wars of the last decade of the 20th century, and close with the current war in Afghanistan, which began in 2001. The wars discussed, although having different origins, such as national pride, territorial expansion, fanatic religiousness, ethnic and racial conflicts, great social differences, the process of decolonization, and terrorism, have one thing in common: their significant and constant repercussion in the print and broadcast media over a long period of time. These modern wars have therefore often been the object of new readings and reinterpretations until today. The history of these wars could not have been written without the development of journalism, the mass media, and new technologies of war reporting in the 20th century.

Stephen J. Cimbala The Politics of Warfare. The Great Powers in the Twentieth Century

6677 руб.
The twentieth century is often described as a century of total war, ranging from the two World Wars to countless civil wars and terrorist conflicts. As the century draws to a close, Stephen J. Cimbala wonders how the nature of warfare has changed over the years. His starting point is a simple observation by Carl von Clausewitz, the great Prussian philosopher of war, that wars are inseparable from politics. The Politics of Warfare explores how Clausewitz stands up against the historic experience of our century and anticipates what we might expect as we enter the next. Cimbala admits that wars are still political creatures, but he argues that they are often politicized in ways that Clausewitz did not foresee. Among the wars Cimbala singles out for study are the two World Wars, the Cold War, Vietnam, and the Gulf War. He considers the roles of intelligence, special operations, and military persuasion. He draws mainly, though not entirely, on U.S. experience. Overall, The Politics of Warfare suggests that wars of the largest and smallest kind are the most subject to political and military distortion; wars of intermediate scope and stake are more likely to be fought within a proper frame of civil and military reference.Written by a seasoned observer of military strategy, The Politics of Warfare questions many assumptions about the nature of war. Cimbala's conclusions gain added significance in the confused terrain of our post-Cold War world.

Ali Kadri Arab Development Denied. Dynamics of Accumulation by Wars of Encroachment

5714 руб.
Arab Development Denied examines how over the last three decades the Arab world has undergone a process of developmental descent, or de-development. As a result of defeat in wars, the loss of security and sovereignty, and even their own class proclivity, the Arab ruling classes have been transformed into fully compradorial classes that have relinquished autonomy over policy. The neoliberal policies adopted since the early eighties are not developmental policies, but the terms of surrender by which Arab resources, human or otherwise, are stifled or usurped. In this book, Ali Kadri attributes the Arab world's developmental failure to imperialist hegemony over oil and the rising role of financialisation, which goes hand in hand with the wars of encroachment that strip the Arab world of its sovereignty and resources.

In a new and updated version of this best-selling book, John McDowell explores the many spiritual themes that weave throughout the Star Wars films. From the Force to the dark side, the issues discussed in the films have a moral and spiritual complexity that, if paid attention to, can help us better understand our place in the world and our relation to others and to God. George Lucas, the creator of Star Wars, did not intend for his films to be mere entertainment, McDowell argues. Rather, he hoped his films would be used as a vehicle for moral education.This new version has been thoroughly revised to include discussion of The Force Awakens and other new developments in the Star Wars universe.

Thesis (M.A.) from the year 2007 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Augsburg, 37 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The 20th century was a century of conflict. Never before in the history of mankind had there been that many nations at war, fighting each other with huge armies and weapons of mass destruction. The two World Wars and the ideological battle between East and West had a huge impact on the social and political world. Many of today´s conflicts can be traced back to the great wars and years that followed them, in which the nations involved tried to find a new balance and world order.The USA took part in several significant wars and is now the last remaining super-power in the world. Of all the conflicts the U.S. was involved in, its role in the Second World War and the war in Vietnam are the two most vividly remembered. Throughout history, people have constructed and displayed a sense of their past, their collective memory and cultural knowledge through works of art. In the twentieth century, this process of myth-making has been fulfilled mainly by novels and movies. Many of these "vehicles of memory" have portrayed the wars and captured the atmosphere in America at that time. Yet, there is a big difference in the way and the extent to which WW II and Vietnam have been digested inthe conscience of the nation. Although the Second World War affected more families directly and more Americans fell in thos...

To End All Wars

1977 руб.
'To End All Wars' was a phrase applied hopefully during 'The Great War'. Its various permutations were meant to suggest that this one might be the last war of all. How quickly the phrase became ironic. How many wars have followed! The words 'to end all wars' must remind us today that all armed conflict is a vast social catastrophe. The centenary of the World War I Armistice comes with a barely veiled triumphalism in the countries that were victorious one hundred years ago. It was that triumphalism, and the failed peace that followed it, which led onto new catastrophes in World War II and then the Cold War. Now, well into the twenty first century, with ever uglier nationalisms raising their heads everywhere, it is time to critically examine the Armistice of one hundred years ago, and its meaning for Australia and for the world, then and now.In this collection, the reader will find work from some of Australasia's leading poets alongside perspectives from new voices. This is a diverse and unsettling read.

In October 2012, the Walt Disney Company paid more than $4 billion to acquire Lucasfilms, the film and production company responsible for Howard the Duck. But Disney, despite its history and success with duck characters, wasn't after Howard; in buying Lucasfilms, it also bought the rights to the Star Wars franchise. Soon after the purchase, Disney announced a new Star Wars film was in the works and would be released in 2015, nearly four decades after the first film hit big screens around the world and changed popular culture forever. The continued relevance of Star Wars owes much to the passion of its fans. For millions of people around the world, the films are more than diversions - they are a way of life. Through costumed role-playing, incessant quoting, Yoda-like grammatical inversions and scholarly debates about the Force, fans keep the films alive in a variety of ways, and in so doing add to the saga's cultural relevance. The first book to address the films holistically and from a variety of cultural perspectives, "Fan Phenomena: Star Wars" explores numerous aspects of Star Wars fandom, from its characters to its philosophy. As one contributor notes, "The saga that George Lucas created affects our lives almost daily, whether we ourselves are fans of the saga or not". Anyone who is struggling to forget Jar Jar Binks can certainly agree to that. Academically informed but written for a general audience, this book will appeal to every fan and critic of the films. That is, al...

Thomas J. Knock To End All Wars. Woodrow Wilson and the Quest for a New World Order

4739 руб.
In his widely acclaimed To End All Wars, Thomas Knock provides an intriguing, often provocative narrative of Woodrow Wilson's epic quest for a new world order. The account follows Wilson's thought and diplomacy from his policy toward revolutionary Mexico, through his dramatic call for "Peace without Victory" in World War I, to the Senate's rejection of the League of Nations. Throughout Knock explores the place of internationalism in American politics, sweeping away the old view that isolationism was the cause of Wilson's failure and revealing the role of competing visions of internationalism--conservative and progressive.

From the American war in Vietnam to the Russian war in Afghanistan, from the British occupation of Northern Ireland to the American occupation of Iraq, "small wars"-which include guerilla warfare and other asymmetrical combat-have been a staple of the geopolitical arena of the post-World War II globe. But it was a contingency before the World Wars that demanded advanced preparation in the areas of strategy, logistics, and other military concerns, too.In this classic 1896 book, Anglo-Irish military writer MAJOR GENERAL SIR CHARLES EDWARD CALLWELL (1859-1928) drew on his service in the British army to create the first modern guide to the "small war." From the causes of small wars, which impacts how they will be fought, to the characteristics of guerilla warfare to nitty-gritty details on the best tactics to employ over various terrain, this is a gripping instruction manual for deploying the "boldness and vigour" required to win a small war.History buffs, wargamers, and armchair military enthusiasts should consider this essential reading.

Since its independence, the United States has proven to be second to none in demonstrating its superiority in organized violence as it waged over two hundred wars in its short history. Wars against the North African Muslim states endured over two decades right after independence. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, the United States waged two wars against Afghanistan and Iraq and a global war of terror that was conveniently named the War on Terror. The theater of operations of this global war was the Muslim World, which we will call Islamistan. These wars were for gold, yet often God was invoked for easy sell to the rest of the world.America in Islamistan: Trade, Oil, and Blood reviews American interventions in the Muslim world, from the days of US independence until today. It explains the true causes for the War on Terror as seen through Muslim eyes and concludes that a "regime change" is now indeed due in the West, as capitalism is in deep systemic crisis and its game is almost over.

Ernie Hasler What.S Happening to Our World.. The Old Order Is Collapsing

1727 руб.
Whats Happening to Our World?The world is the most dangerous place, with wars and rumors of wars. Trading and security alliances are breaking up, like Brexit. America is breaking treaties and agreements, and nationalism is rising like it did before the Second World War.Climate change is resulting in more droughts and heat waves. Hurricanes and typhoons are becoming stronger and more intense. Sea levels are rising fast as ice held in the glaciers at the Arctic and Antarctic melts. Food crops are failing, fishing stocks are diminishing, and the poorest people starve. Tribal hatreds are arising, and forest and grass fires are increasing to the extent that they are now barely manageable. As all these factors defeat governments, the world will turn to a superbeing and hand world power over to him and a political dictator. These two will be in the interests of world survival, which demands absolute obedience and loyalty of all followers, who will be required to have the identifying mark of the church. Those who refuse the mark will not be allowed to buy or sell and will therefore starve.Is this how it will end?Read on.

Thesis (M.A.) from the year 2007 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Augsburg, 37 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The 20th century was a century of conflict. Never before in the history of mankind had there been that many nations at war, fighting each other with huge armies and weapons of mass destruction. The two World Wars and the ideological battle between East and West had a huge impact on the social and political world. Many of today´s conflicts can be traced back to the great wars and years that followed them, in which the nations involved tried to find a new balance and world order.The USA took part in several significant wars and is now the last remaining super-power in the world. Of all the conflicts the U.S. was involved in, its role in the Second World War and the war in Vietnam are the two most vividly remembered. Throughout history, people have constructed and displayed a sense of their past, their collective memory and cultural knowledge through works of art. In the twentieth century, this process of myth-making has been fulfilled mainly by novels and movies. Many of these "vehicles of memory" have portrayed the wars and captured the atmosphere in America at that time.

Although the Second World War affected more families directly and more Americans fell in thos...
