Opis - Pierwsze na świecie świadectwo ofiary zbrodni honorowej. Miała siedemnaście lat i zakochała się: zhańbiła rodzinę. Więc rodzina wydała na nią wyrok śmierci... Pokochała go pierwszą miłością. Myślała, że się z nią ożeni. Ale ukochany zniknął, a ona odkryła, że jest w ciąży. A w jej świecie to najcięższa zbrodnia... W zapomnianej przez Boga wiosce w Cisjordanii kobiety są warte mniej niż zwierzęta domowe. Tu mężczyzna jest panem życia i śmierci żony, córki, siostry. Brat może bezkarnie zabić siostrę, matka - córkę, kolejną bezużyteczną dziewczynkę, jaka się urodzi. Tu kobiecie odbiera się godność, a nawet życie zgodnie z odwiecznym obyczajem i uświęconą tradycją. A śmierć jest karą dla dziewczyny, która zhańbi rodzinę. Tak jak Souad. Wyrok wydaje jej ojciec. Szwagier dokonuje egzekucji. Oblewa Souad benzyną i podpala... SOUAD przeżyła - cudem, ale rodzina usiłowała zabić ją nawet w szpitalu. Na zawsze jednak pozostanie straszliwie okaleczona - na ciele i duszy. I wciąż musi się ukrywać; dopóki żyje, jej rodzinę okrywa hańba. Spalona żywcem, opublikowana pod pseudonimem szokująca opowieść o piekle, jakim było jej dzieciństwo i młodość, stała się międzynarodowym bestsellerem. Wydana w 37 w krajach książka przerywa tabu milczenia wobec istniejącej nadal w krajach muzułmańskich barbarzyńskiej tradycji. Nieludzkiego obyczaju, prawa mężczyzn, na mocy którego co najmniej pięć tysięcy kobiet pada co roku ofiarą zbrodni honorowej. Nazwa - Spalona Żywcem Wyd.

'Only with the greatest of simplifications, for the sake of convenience, can we say Africa. In reality, except as a geographical term, Africa doesn't exist'. Ryszard Kapuscinski has been writing about the people of Africa throughout his career. In a study that avoids the official routes, palaces and big politics, he sets out to create an account of post-colonial Africa seen at once as a whole and as a location that wholly defies generalised explanations. It is both a sustained meditation on the mosaic of peoples and practises we call 'Africa', and an impassioned attempt to come to terms with humanity itself as it struggles to escape from foreign domination, from the intoxications of freedom, from war and from politics as theft. The Beginning: Collision, Ghana 1958 More than anything, one is struck by the light. Light everywhere. Brightness everywhere. Everywhere, the sun. Just yesterday, an autumnal London was drenched in rain. The airplane drenched in rain. A cold, wind, darkness. But here, from the morning

Dark Guardian #2 HarperTeen

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Chapter OneSupposedly, dreams reflect our hidden fears and secret desires, all clamoring for attention. The one I'd had last night had been so vivid that even now, as evening drew near, it still made me squirm in my chair. I sat against a wall in the counsel room where the elders and the Dark Guardians--protectors of our society--were discussing how best to ensure our survival. Because I hadn't yet experienced my first transformation, I was considered a novice and was not allowed to sit at the large, round table with the others. This was okay by me, because it gave me the freedom to let my mind wander--without anyone noticing that I wasn't paying attention.In my dream, I'd been standing in a clearing with my declared mate, Connor, our arms wrapped around each other so tightly that we could barely breathe. The full moon served as a spotlight.Then dark clouds drifted over the moon, and everything went black. Still holding him near, I was acutely aware of the muscles and bones in his body undulating against me. He grew taller and broader. My fingers were in his hair, and I felt the strands thicken and lengthen. His mouth covered mine, but his lips were fuller than before. The kiss was hungrier than any he'd ever given me. It heated me from head to toe, and I thought I knew what it was to be a candle, melting from the scorching flame. I knew I should move away, but I clung to him as though I'd drown in a sea of doubts if I let go.The hovering clouds floated away, and the moonlight illuminated us once again--only I was no longer in Connor's arms. Instead I was pressing my body against Rafe's, kissing him, yearning for his touch. . . .I shifted uncomfortably in my chair with the memory of how desperately I'd wanted Rafe. It was Connor I was supposed to long for. But I'd woken up in a tangle of sheets, clamoring for another of Rafe's touches--even if it were only in a dream.Squirming again, I felt a sharp elbow in my ribs."Be still, will you?" Brittany Reed whispered harshly beside me. Like me, she would soon be turning seventeen and would experience her first transformation with the next full moon.I'd known Brittany since kindergarten. We were friends, but I'd never felt as close to her as I did to Kayla--whom I'd met only last summer, when her adoptive parents had brought her to the park to face her past. We'd connected on a deep level almost as soon as we met. We'd spent the past year sharing our lives through emails, text messages, and phone calls.During the last full moon she'd discovered that she was one of us and that Lucas Wilde was her destined mate. I can't imagine how frightening it would be to have so little time to prepare. We Shifters can't control the first transformation. When the full moon rises, our bodies react to its call. But now Kayla sat at the table with the others. The summer solstice, the longest day of the year, is usually a time when as many of our kind as possible come together to celebrate our existence. But this year a pall hung over us as we gathered at Wolford, a village hidden deep within a huge national forest near the Canadian border. All that remained there of what had once been a vibrant community were a few small buildings and the massive, mansionlike structure that serves as the home of the elders who rule over us. The residence also houses most of us when we're here for the solstice celebration.We've always been a secret society. Even though we have lived among the rest of the world, we show our true selves only to each other. But recently, we discovered that Lucas's older brother had betrayed us by telling someone in the outside world about our existence. Now some scientists who work for a medical research company called Bio-Chrome were determined to capture us and discover what makes us tick--or more important, what makes us transform. They wanted to patent this ability, develop it, and use it for their own financial gain. But being dissected and studied wasn't how any of us wanted to spend our summer vacation.Although we hadn't seen any signs of Bio-Chrome scientists since Lucas and Kayla had escaped from their clutches, none of us believed they'd given up their quest so easily. We were all on edge because we could sense an impending confrontation--the way animals sense a coming storm. Nature had made us attuned to danger. It was the reason we hadn't gone the way of the dinosaur.

Film Forum Review (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Film Forum Review Taken as a whole, the past four issues of Film Forum Review constitute a catalog of films selected for adult discussion purposes. Some of the films are old, some are new; some were made in the United States, some in other countries; the common element they share is that they are all available here at this time, and that they have certain discussion values. The 1947 issues of Film Forum Review, then, have lasting value as a reference catalog for adult discussion leaders. To keep this catalog practical and useful, Film Forum Review will continue reviewing films as they are released, (and it will catch up on some of the films which were screened too late for publication in the special issue, and on some films which were not available for screening at the proper time during the past year.) Each quarter, some thirty or forty films will be reviewed in Film Forum Review, as they have been in the past year. However, they will not be grouped into special issues. Each issue will have reviews on all the new films of that quarter. The reviews will refer back to films published in the special issues, and their relative merits and failures should be always weighed with respect to other films within the same general subject-matter framework. Major Findings Judging from catalog descriptions of the 500 films we screened, it could be expected that all of them would have been valuable as adult discussion aids. The number of films found acceptable or better - 176 - is astonishingly low. And of that number only 83 fell in the Recommended and Highly Recommended categories. The trouble with most of the films was that they were not produced specifically for adult education. Consequently, our job was that of identifying those that could reasonably be adapted for adult discussion from among all the films currently distributed. Out-of-dateness was a major factor in disqualifying or limiting the usefulness of a large proportion of the films we screened. This is undoubtedly due to the fact that many of the films still in circulation were made during wartime to meet problems which were based in specific wartime situations. Other defects in the films screened were immaturity and incompleteness in presenting the problems inherent in the subjects they were concerned with. Another large number of films were considerably weakened by their failing to make good use of the film medium as a means of communication. Three major types of production sponsorship can be identified among the films we have reviewed. They are governmental, organizational, and theatrical sponsorship. Governmental Sponsorship Seventy-five of the films we have reviewed were produced under governmental sponsorship of one kind or another. Of these 30 came from Canada, 20 from Great Britain, 19 from the United States, and six from other countries. In view of the fact that Canada and Great Britain have extensive film-producing programs, it does not seem remarkable that so substantial a number of films should come from these sources.

Tannwald (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Tannwald Why is it that no play founded upon Goethe's "Faust" has had any notable success save such as could be given to it by fine music or scenic effects? The story of Margaret is one of the most tragic ever written; Mephistopheles is a brilliant character; the dialogue is remarkably eloquent, witty and poetical; the piece, though not prepared for the stage by the author, is dramatic in its form, and seems to furnish almost unequalled material for playwrights; and yet, after a hundred have tried it, the successful one is still to be found. Not having examined their compositions, I shall not undertake to criticise them, but so far as I know anything of them, all give prominence to Mephistopheles, the supernatural and the scenic effects, and I have made another attempt, excluding everything but the human characters and natural influences, developing some personages which are mentioned in the original, and adding others. Out of two dozen scenes, three-fourths are entirely my own. I do not publish "Tannwald" without at least partly appreciating its defects. I should have been glad to reduce the number of characters, and to give brilliancy and eloquence to the dialogue if I knew how. The translation of Margaret's song, "The King of Thule," is taken from an anonymous writer. H. Country - Austria. Time - In the Reign of Charles V. Characters - Henry Faust, Professor in Vienna; John Slack, his friend, and Cousin of Baroness Roth; Mr. Albert, Faust's servant; Count Dick ; Major Hohenthal; Captain Lovenstein; Mr. Helfenstein, a barber; Margaret Hartz, a village girl; Mrs. Hartz, her mother; Barbara Marks, Margaret's cousin; Mrs. Marks, Barbara's mother; Mrs. Martha Swerlin, Margaret's cousin; Mrs. Kline; Mrs. Prinz; Miss Behr; Miss Green; Lina, Miss Behr's servant; Valentine, Margaret's brother; Baron Ritterstahl; Major Myer; Commissary Wetzel; Soldiers; Paymaster Fuhr; Lieut. Carmony; Anthony Swerlin, Ritterstahl's servant; Soldiers and Peasants; Baroness Roth, Lady of Tannwald Castle. Act I. Scene I - Room in Tannwald Castle. Baroness Roth, Mr. Slack, Count Dick, Captain Lovenstein, Major Hohenthal, Albert, Helfenstein, and Others. Baroness - Cousin Slack, I fear that your friends accustomed as they are to court life, will find it dull in Tannwald. Slack - These gentlemen are fond of the chase, and there is no better place for game than the mountains back of the Castle. The Baron has already gone with us to the stables and assigned our horses to us. Baroness - What will become of Prof. Faust? Slack - He can follow us in charge of a gamekeeper, until he learns to ride. Then he can amuse himself fishing, and occasionally we will go down to the village and see its attractions. Baroness - It has none. Slack - O, cousin, a lady is not supposed to know all that attracts gentlemen. When I was here last Summer, I spent many hours there. Two dozen village beauties want the attentions of men from the court. Baroness - They are poor people; we never associate with them. Slack - The young men can drink and sing; the girls can dance and flirt. Count Dick - You are the man for us, Mr. Slack. Take us among them. Baroness - If you wish, I will sometimes invite them to the Castle. Count Dick - That would be still better. Please do; we cannot ride after the hounds every day. Slack - They will be delighted to come, and we will have all the fun we want. Baroness - Then, in a couple of weeks, we will have a ball here. In the meantime, I wish you all to enjoy yourselves, and if anything is necessary to your comfor

My Father Il Duce - 2826681057

My Father Il Duce Kales Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In this historical, revisionist memoir, Romano Mussolini (September 26, 1927-February 3, 2006), the last surviving child of dictator Benito Mussolini, contributes his unique perspective to the growing body of work that portrays Il Duce's era. Through Romano's portrait of never before publicly shared memories and feelings, My Father Il Duce brings alive the domestic scenes of his childhood particularly when they intersected with his father's public role. He also relates in detail the memories of his mother, Donna Rachele, who lived until 1979 and often spoke with Romano about his father. Romano's memories, sorted by chapter, but not presented chronologically, shift between his own recollections of time spent with his father to the years after Mussolini's death in 1945. The prose lingers and then artistically moves forward, melancholy to fierce to vulnerable, like the notes of the jazz music played by Romano during his acclaimed musical career. Mussolini is presented here as a man who was supremely convinced that he was the master of his life: "'Everything happening around me, '" my father used to say, "'leaves me indifferent. I consciously choose 'Live dangerously' as my life's motto. As an old soldier, I say, 'If I advance, follow me. If I retreat, kill me. If they kill me, vindicate me.'" He saw his existence in scenes of high drama, envisioning in the end, Romano tells us, that he would be placed in front of throngs at New York City's Madison Square Garden and then executed in a macabre spectacle. In this memoir, Romano does not truly ponder the consequences of his father's alliances and dictatorship, though with at least one notable exception that he gave considerable thought to his personal anger toward Hitler for "stabbing my father in the back at his darkest hour." Instead, he seeks to render concrete the memories that he held silent over a lifetime before they were lost to history. The fascist order that Mussolini created and imposed upon Italy is one that Italians and students of history the world over are still interpreting. Indeed, his legacy was centerstage in the May 2006 Italian national elections, and one of the deputies in the Italian parliament today who represents his alliances is Alessandra Mussolini, Romano's daughter and defender of her infamous grandfather. As the trend of historical revisionism in Italy continues, in particular regarding the role of fascism, some of this kinder, gentler Mussolini is already widely accepted. Thus, My Father Il Duce (in Italian Il Duce Mio Padre) was published to great attention and controversy in Italy in 2004 and quickly became a bestseller. Romano often appeared on Italian national television and in newspaper interviews. In part, this illuminates that fascist supporters are alive and well, while also confirms even among non-supporters, the ongoing attraction to the cult of personality Mussolini masterminded. In Italy, this public discourse about Mussolini is common. However, for others it is important to establish a context for Romano's memoir. This is accomplished here through an accompanying masterful twenty-one page introductory essay by one of the world's foremost authorities on Italian political culture, Alexander Stille: writing the introductory essay to My Father Il Duce is a bit like writing the warning label on a powerful drug that has its uses but must be taken with care and knowledge of its possible side effects. Romano reached his goal of living to see the first publication of his memoir in Italian. As for this English-language edition, he earlier expressed approval of the front cover design. On January 1, 2006, he received the translated English language manuscript of his writing. During the last month of his life, he approved it. Romano Mussolini died on February 3, 2006, at age seventy-nine in a Rome hospital soon after heart surgery. Romano's death made international news. The New York Times obituary reported: "In the 1950's and 60's he was in the vanguard of Italian jazz with his group the Romano Mussolini All Stars, and he played with American greats like Dizzy Gillespie, Duke Ellington and Chet Baker. Mr. Mussolini gained even greater international fame with his first marriage, to Anna Maria Scicolone, the sister of the actress Sophia Loren....Despite his own scrupulous avoidance of politics, politicians from Italy's right wing-parties widely lauded Mr. Mussolini and his family name in statements they released: 'Romano knew how to make us love him for his humanity, his art, but also for the dignity and coherence with which he defended his family from attacks and demonizations.'" Through Romano's worldwide celebrity and well-regarded nature, his words in defense of Il Duce, albeit ones he no doubt wrote as a son who loved his father, offer a rare insider's perspective that can help us better understand, and therefore more readily defeat tyranny. This memoir's account of history further reminds us of the continuing need for our vigilance in the pursuit of truth.

Excerpt from Log of the Cruise of Schooner Julius Webb: Which Sailed From Norwich, Ct;, July 23d, 1858, Having on Board the "Wachusett Club," of Worcester Mass Owing to some misunderstanding among the authorities, the church bells were not rung, nor was there any discharge of cannon in honor of our arrival, but with these trifling omissions, all proper respect was shown to us. At this place our Sailing Master, Capt. Elijah Bolles, an "old salt," still in the brine, was shipped, as also were fresh milk, and the seven members of the Club to whom allusion has been made, who left Worcester by the steamboat train of 23 d. Here, also, reluctantly, we put ashore a citizen of Worcester, who had made the passage with us from Norwich, where he had "done his business" in the hope to make the entire trip with us, but was recalled by other engagements, having sundry proof sheets at this time running through the press, to which the owners imperatively demanded his personal attention. With much regret we bade him adieu, after solemnly toasting his health in lemonade. At 8 A.M. our anchor was weighed, and with wind about due north, we stood for Gardner's Bay, which anchorage ground we reached in about three hours. About this time several members of the Club took some lemonade. Fishing commenced. At 11.30 a loud shout announced the capture of the first fish - Brother Dennis having landed upon the deck a specimen of the "shark" species, y'elept by the sailors "dog-fish." In answer to our inquiries as to its eating qualities, Capt. Bolles pronounced it "good!" Opinion doubted: strong prejudice manifested against the "critter" for table use.

Excerpt from The Complete Writings of Alfred De Musset, Vol. 10: A Supper at Masemoiselle Rachel's, the Dream of Augustus, the Donkey and the Stream, Faustine, Odd Poem, Familiar Letters, the King's Servant, the Poet and Prose-Writer, Secret Transactions The heraldic authorities of France all mention the de Musset family, which fact makes it unnecessary for me to give here the genealogy of the poet who has added lustre to this name. However, I note among his ancestors a rather curious personage: he was one Colin de Musset, poet and musician, a very clever viol player and a friend of the celebrated Thibaut, Count of Champagne and King of Navarre. Colin de Musset set to music some poetry written by this prince, as well as his own verses. His reputation must have been widespread, since the sculptors in charge of the decorations on the portals of Saint Julien des Menestrels in Paris placed there both a statue of him and one of his wife, who, it would seem, also cultivated music. But we need not look so far back as the time of Queen Blanche to find the gift of poetry and a taste for literature among the ancestors of Alfred de Musset; indeed, they are to be found among those of one or two generations back.

Horse Secrets Forgotten Books

Excerpt from Horse Secrets: Written, Compiled and Now Disclosed Dr. A. S. Alexander, the writer and compiler of "Horse Secrets," has had upward of 25 years' experience in matters pertaining to agriculture, horse breeding, veterinary science, press writing and teaching. He was the author of the first stallion service legislation and inspection regulation in America, the first law of the kind having been written by him and enacted by the Wisconsin Legislature in 1905. Similar legislation now is in force in some 16 other states, and it is accomplishing much for the improvement of horse breeding. Horse trading offers unusual opportunities and temptations for sharp practises. Both buyer and seller equally need to be horse-wise and alert. Dishonesty is discountenanced in the great horse markets, but it is common among scalpers, "gyps" and small traders outside of the recognized markets and is likely to be practised by either the buyer or the seller. The items published in these pages disclose many sharp practises which, aside from their interest as facts not generally known, are valuable as information for the man who would engage intelligently in horse buying and selling. The writer and publishers of this book desire to expose these tricks, and to decry their practise in the markets and among outside dealers and breeders. "Forewarned is forearmed," and the information here given will doubtless save many a man from loss, and tend to make dishonesty less rife because less likely to succeed. In mentioning the various tricks herein disclosed, the exact methods have not been given in detail. We have no desire to instruct readers so that they may "go and do likewise"; for the same reason, doses have not been given for the administration of the various drugs and "dopes" used by tricksters. The matter relating to the purchase of stallions should prove specially interesting and valuable. It is a matter of general knowledge among the initiated that stallions are frequently sold at excessive prices to companies of farmers, and that "peddlers" of such stallions are unscrupulous in their methods of obtaining signers to the notes taken for the purchase of such horses. The facts published with respect to this business should serve to warn farmers that they are apt to be cheated in purchasing a stallion on the "company plan," and that it is always best, safest and most profitable to purchase a stallion direct from a reputable breeder or importer, for by so doing much money will be saved and the horse bought will be much more likely to prove sound and suitable and to give satisfaction. Dr. Alexander desires in this place to acknowledge his indebtedness to the publishers of the various farm and stock papers from the pages of which extracts have been taken.

European Company Law in Accelerated Progress Kluwer Law International

Inne 1

It is commonplace to speak of 'Europe' as a major player in the global marketplace. In reality, however, persistent conflicts among the company and securities law regimes of the various Member States continue to hamper the full emergence of the EU as an economic power on a par with the US and China. Progress is under way, however, as this book amply testifies. In the wake of the Financial Services Action Plan (1999) and the Company Law and Corporate Governance Action Plan (2003), a series of EU regulations and ECJ cases has significantly eroded the national barriers to cross-border legal entities within the Union. The authors of these nine essays - leading academics from Denmark, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Norway and the UK - acknowledge and analyze this progress. Most demonstrate why they think further regulatory harmonization is essential, although some warn of potential dangers and pitfalls along the way. All in all, "European Company Law in Accelerated Progress" is a powerfully thought-provoking contribution to an important debate. Among the issues that arise are the following: shareholders' rights; cross-border voting; corporate governance; disclosure; corporate restructuring; conflicts of interest; equity capital provision; and shareholders versus stakeholders. As a penetrating evaluation of the EU's capability to improve its corporate regulatory infrastructure and thereby attract more investors and business activities within its territory as a whole, this book offers securely grounded and valuable insights to all those interested in the field, from economic policymakers at every level of government to business persons and their counsel. Most of the essays here presented were originally delivered as papers at a conference organized by the Centre for European Company Law in Leiden, The Netherlands, in September 2005. The lectures are here offered in an updated and more elaborate form.

Instinct for War - 2212825599

Instinct for War MIT Press Massachusets Institute of Tech nology

Inne 1

Stories about war are some of the oldest stories told--used to entertain, to glorify, to lament, to educate. An Instinct for War utilizes myriad tales of war to offer a remarkable look at one of humanity's oldest plagues. Roger Spiller excavates the essence of war and its evolution through the words and thoughts of those who led--and those who were led--into battle, moving from the perspective of an ancient Chinese emperor to Napoleon's command, from a Civil War soldier's final days to the particularities of today's small wars throughout the globe. Spiller combines a mastery of the primary sources with a vibrant historical imagination to locate a dozen turning points in the world's history of warfare that altered our understanding of war and its pursuit. We are conducted through profound moments by the voices of those who witnessed them and are given a graphic understanding of war, the devastating choices, the means by which battles are won and lost, and the enormous price exacted. Spiller's attention to the sights and sounds of battle enables us to feel the sting and menace of past violent conflicts as if they were today's. A bold departure from standard military history, An Instinct for War will challenge our understanding of how war forever alters the landscape--both human and geographic--and how individuals can alter the nature of battle. This collective portrait of the life of war offers unparalleled insight into our struggle for mastery over a fundamental instinct. In a graceful feat of imagination and trenchant analysis, Spiller presents 13 mostly first-person parables, meditations on moments when the 'nature and conduct of war' changed significantly. His narrators, invented almost from whole cloth or reconstructed from notable figures, reflect on the craft and meaning of war in settings ranging from Han China to a future North America...These inventive vignettes encompass a broad sweep of history and military thought.    --Publishers WeeklyImagine a military historian who can travel in time to past and future wars. That's what Roger Spiller, who taught at the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, does in his imaginative collection of 13 short stories. They stretch from ancient China to a 21st-century war 'so terrible it was beyond naming.'...His mostly first-person stories deal with Cortez's conquest of the Aztecs, what Civil War Gen. George McClellan tried to borrow from Napoleon and an investigation of a Japanese general after World War II. Spiller's stories can be read as parables. They neither celebrate nor condemn war but raise fundamental questions faced by soldiers and civilians.    --Bob Minzesheimer, USA TodayAn Instinct for War is a brilliantly unorthodox piece of work. Roger Spiller, now George C. Marshall Professor, emeritus, of Military History at the U.S. Army Command General Staff College, has written a strange, brave, and absolutely fascinating book...Spiller's fictions are always in the service of ideas. They dramatize aspects of the experience of war and of strategic thought over two and a half millennia, so they are fictions in the sense that Platonic dialogues are fictions...All these stories are powerful, most of them are disturbing, and each contains lessons that can be subtle, multiple, and contradictory, as so many of war's lessons are...Along the way Spiller displays great learning, always lightly worn; great moral seriousness, never ponderously displayed; and literary flair. This is a remarkable book, initially disconcerting and eventually enthralling.    --Fredric Smoler, American HeritageRoger Spiller is the least conventional of historians. For years, he has laboured on a book on the nature of war, and he has cast it in fictional form...This thought-provoking book represents an infusion of a lifetime's reading and thought about war, and renders the dimensions of conflict comprehensible to all. This is an achievement rare among historians, and Roger Spiller must now be reckoned among the notable writers about war.    --Brian Holden Reid, Times Literary SupplementWith An Instinct for War, Roger Spiller takes his place alongside John Keegan and Paul Fussell, those who are able to penetrate the armor of war itself and get at its horrible, vivifying, excruciating heart. The truths that accumulate here in this book are like the layers of a pearl, born in friction, imperceptibly accrued at first, but ultimately exquisitely valuable.    --Ken Burns, filmmaker An Instinct For War is a book of war-stories like no other I've read--a cultural history of the world's war-making, from ancient China and Greece to the Apocalypse that's just ahead of us. Spiller's skills include ventriloquism: he makes every war speak in a voice of its own, sometimes historical, sometimes not. His book is a tour de force that will engage every student of war, as it did me.    --Samuel Hynes, author of Flights of Passage and The Soldier's TaleRoger Spiller has written a remarkable book--a fusion of learning, reflection, and imagination--that will engage readers for whom the subject of war is too important to be left to either military historians or public officials.    --John Shy, Professor Emeritus of History, University of Michigan Spiller's knowledge of warfare is global in every sense of the word, spanning the earth and stretching from earliest recorded history to the present. This is military history at its very best.    --Peter Maslowski, author of Looking For A Hero: Staff Sergeant Joe Ronnie Hooper And The Vietnam War
