Masse, T: Nuclear Jihad
71,90 CHF *

The most visible face of terrorism-which is embedded in the conflicts in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and the border region between the two countries-could mask an even bigger danger. In the world of counterterrorism, which includes the quiet work of intelligence gathering at home, abroad, in prisons, in mosques, and in Internet chat rooms, Western analysts are working hard to understand one of the most frightening threats, that of nuclear terrorism. In his appraisal of this menace, Todd M. Masse explores the likelihood of an attack by examining the two major schools of thought on the subject. The apocalyptists, on the one hand, tend to view the possibility of a nuclear terrorist attack as highly likely over the next five to ten years. Skeptics, on the other hand, recognize the grave consequences of a terrorist nuclear detonation but tend to discount the potential of terrorists using weapons of mass destruction (WMD). Upon reviewing the terrorists' unsuccessful history with WMD, the skeptics believe that those terrorist groups wanting to create widespread panic will revert to triedand- true conventionalA' attacks, which can still inflict mass casualties. Masse provides a much-needed objective assessment of the nuclear terrorist threat and suggests a range of policy options to address the danger. National security analysts and policymakers, military personnel, and graduate students in international relations and political science will find his work compelling.

Bird Lovers, Backyard continues Thalia Field's interrogation of the act of storytelling and her experimentation with literary genre. Field's illuminating essays, or stories, in poetic form, place scientists, philosophers, animals, even the military, in real and imagined events. Her open questioning brings in subjects as diverse as pigeons, chat rooms, nuclear testing, the building of the Kennedy Space Center, the development of seaside beaches, Konrad Lorenz, the American author and animal trainer Vicki Hearne, and the Swiss zoologist Heini Hediger. Throughout, she intermingles fact and fiction, probing the porous boundaries between human and animal, calling into question 'what we are willing to do with words,' and spinning a world where life is haunted by echoes. Story and event survive through daring language, and the elegies of history.
