Genre: Fiction

William W. Johnstone delivers an all-new action-packed series torn from today's headlines in which the greatest danger is not posed by those kept out of America--but by those let in. . . Invasion Usa Little Tuscon, Arizona, just twenty miles north of the border, is a small town whose citizens believe in God, country, and hard work. But their peaceful existence is about to be shattered by Mara Salvatrucha--the murderous Central American gang known as M-15. Culled from the scum of the earth, M-15 runs a drug smuggling operation through the ill-protected border, terrorizing defenseless communities into submission through theft, rape, and murder. With Washington turning a blind eye to the crisis in Little Tucson, Vietnam vet Tom Brannon takes the law into his own hands and forms his own volunteer army, which he names The Patriot Project. But now all hell's about to break loose, because M-15 is coming back to take out the Patriots. Outnumbered and outgunned, with the fate of their families, their homes, and their very country at stake, Tom Brannon and his men will meet the enemy. It's high noon in Arizona--and time to take America back once more.

Democracies at War

Author: Dan Reiter
Publisher: Princeton University Press
ISBN: 0691089493
Release Date: 2002-02-10
Genre: Political Science

Why do democracies win wars? This is a critical question in the study of international relations, as a traditional view--expressed most famously by Alexis de Tocqueville--has been that democracies are inferior in crafting foreign policy and fighting wars. In Democracies at War, the first major study of its kind, Dan Reiter and Allan Stam come to a very different conclusion. Democracies tend to win the wars they fight--specifically, about eighty percent of the time. Complementing their wide-ranging case-study analysis, the authors apply innovative statistical tests and new hypotheses. In unusually clear prose, they pinpoint two reasons for democracies' success at war. First, as elected leaders understand that losing a war can spell domestic political backlash, democracies start only those wars they are likely to win. Secondly, the emphasis on individuality within democratic societies means that their soldiers fight with greater initiative and superior leadership. Surprisingly, Reiter and Stam find that it is neither economic muscle nor bandwagoning between democratic powers that enables democracies to win wars. They also show that, given societal consent, democracies are willing to initiate wars of empire or genocide. On the whole, they find, democracies' dependence on public consent makes for more, rather than less, effective foreign policy. Taking a fresh approach to a question that has long merited such a study, this book yields crucial insights on security policy, the causes of war, and the interplay between domestic politics and international relations.

Quick Draw

Author: Shu Ejima
Publisher: Kodansha USA
ISBN: 9781939130891
Release Date: 2014-04-29
Genre: Fiction

Storytelling is at its apex although the story itself begins with a rather mediocre murder. The background scenery takes place from the Californian West Coast to the deep, forgotten land of Mojave Desert. The author sets readers' eye on a LAPD detective, investigating a family massacre in Los Angeles. Actions, explosions and scorching grounds, thugs and rogues standing with full intention to kill the opponent, the bloody vengeance of a swordsman with a dark past....this novel reaches a height of "a hard-boiled crime action" with great surprising conclusion with contemporary touch of "urban mythos". Once you start turning pages, there is no turning back. Quick Draw's venom will taint you with an uncontrollable addiction to read on.
