Haunting Legacy Brookings Institution

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The United States had never lost a war - that is, until 1975, when it was forced to flee Saigon in humiliation after losing to what Lyndon Johnson called a "raggedy-ass little fourth-rate country." The legacy of this first defeat has haunted every president since, especially on the decision of whether to put "boots on the ground" and commit troops to war. In "Haunting Legacy", the father-daughter journalist team of Marvin Kalb and Deborah Kalb presents a compelling, accessible, and hugely important history of presidential decision making on one crucial issue: in light of the Vietnam debacle, under what circumstances should the United States go to war? The sobering lesson of Vietnam is that the United States is not invincible - it can lose a war - and thus it must be more discriminating about the use of American power. Every president has faced the ghosts of Vietnam in his own way, though each has been wary of being sucked into another unpopular war. Ford (during the Mayaguez crisis) and both Bushes (Persian Gulf, Iraq, Afghanistan) deployed massive force, as if to say, "Vietnam, be damned." On the other hand, Carter, Clinton, and Reagan (to the surprise of many) acted with extreme caution, mindful of the Vietnam experience. Obama has also wrestled with the Vietnam legacy, using doses of American firepower in Libya while still engaged in Iraq and Afghanistan. The authors spent five years interviewing hundreds of officials from every post war administration and conducting extensive research in presidential libraries and archives, and they've produced insight and information never before published. Equal parts taut history, revealing biography, and cautionary tale, "Haunting Legacy" is must reading for anyone trying to understand the power of the past to influence war-and-peace decisions of the present, and of the future.

Sacrificial Magic Harper Collins

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Enter a world of danger, ghosts and magic in the fourth book of the fantastic Downside Ghosts series. If you liked the compelling characters in 50 Shades of Grey, you'll love the Downside Ghosts series. Ghosts; ghouls; things that go bump in the night. Chess has seen them all in her role as a witch and ghost hunter. Right now life is going surprisingly well for Chess Putnam. Her bank balance is healthy, she's pretty sure she can call Terrible her "boyfriend", and the last few months have been devoid of anyone trying to kill her. So when Chess is ordered by an infamous crime boss - who also happens to be her drug dealer - to use her powers as a witch to solve a grisly murder involving dark magic, she is unsurprised; she knew the recent calm wouldn't last. As if that wasn't bad enough, Chess' ex lover Lex, son of a rival crime lord, is trying to re-ignite the sparks between them. Plus there's the little matter of Chess' real job as a ghost hunter for the Church of Real Truth; investigating reports of a haunting at a school in the heart of Downside. Someone seems to be taking a crash course in summoning the dead-and if Chess doesn't watch her back, she may soon be joining their ranks. As Chess is drawn into a shadowy world of twisted secrets and dark violence, it soon becomes clear that she's not going to emerge from its depths without making the ultimate sacrifice.
