A most interesting and wonderful book.--American Philatelic Congress
The essays in this volume address the central theme of Pakistan’s enduring, yet elusive, quest for democracy. The book charts Pakistan’s struggle from its very inception, at least in the political rhetoric provided by both civilian and military leaders, for democracy, liberalism, freedom of expression, inclusiveness of minorities and even secularism. At the same time, it demonstrates how in practice, the country has continued to drift towards increasingly brittle authoritarianism, religious extremism and intolerance of minorities — both Muslim and non-Muslim. This chasm between animated political rhetoric and grim political reality has baffled the world as much as Pakistanis themselves. In this volume, scholars and practitioners of statecraft from around the world have sought to explain the dichotomy that exists between the rhetoric and the reality. Crucial areas such as Pakistan’s troubled status as a theocracy; its relationship with the US; the position of women and their quest for empowerment; the Mujahir Qaumi movement; the sharp class divide that has led to an elitist political culture; and finally, an erudite discussion of the popular topic — Jinnah’s vision of Pakistan — are the focus of this book. This volume will be of interest to scholars of history, political science, international relations, sociology, anthropology and urban planning, policy-makers and think-tanks, as well as the wider reading public curious about South Asia.
AMERICAN FOREIGN POLICY has long been the premier textbook for American foreign policy courses. Now in its Seventh Edition, this comprehensive textbook has been thoroughly revised and updated to include several completely new sections, reflecting the most recent developments and scholarship related to American foreign policy. It affords readers the most up-to-date coverage and analysis of the process and substance of contemporary American foreign policy. This Seventh Edition provides considerable attention to how the Bush administration sought to reshape national strategy, policies and structures; its domestic and international actions taken in the name of national security, and the immediate as well as possible long-term consequences of these developments. As in past editions, the Seventh Edition retains the book’s proven and pedagogically valuable analytical framework. Harnessing the conceptual, theoretical, and historical components that facilitate an analysis of American foreign policy, the text maintains five sources: international, societal, governmental, role, and individual that collectively influence decisions about foreign policy goals and the means chosen to realize them. The book also continues its longstanding tradition of offering readers extraordinary breadth and in-depth of coverage with thoughtful discussion of past, present, and future American foreign policy, a lively and well-written narrative, and thought-provoking analysis based on the most recent scholarship and developments. AMERICAN FOREIGN POLICY will equip readers with a solid and well-informed understanding of the full range of domestic and global sources of influence that will challenge American foreign policy-makers in the twenty-first century.

Author: Alberto Santos-Dumont
Publisher: Caffin Press
This early work on Alberto Santos-Dumont is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. It details the journeys of an air-ship traveller and his experiences. This fascinating work is thoroughly recommended for inclusion on the bookshelf of anyone interested in air-ship history. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
