"Rebellion" ist der furiose Auftakt zur neuen großen High-Fantasy-Saga des amerikanischen Bestseller-Autors Michael J. Sullivan. Seit Anbeginn der Zeit leben die Menschen im Schatten ihrer Götter, der Fhrey: Während diese in kunstvoll angelegten Städten wohnen, über Magie verfügen und niemals altern, hausen die Menschen in armseligen Dörfern, geplagt von Hunger und Krankheiten. Als der junge Raithe von einem Fhrey angegriffen wird, tut er das Undenkbare: Er wehrt sich. Niemand könnte überraschter sein als Raithe, als der unsterbliche Gott plötzlich tot zu seinen Füßen liegt. Von da ab eilt sein Ruf ihm voraus - und ehe er es sich versieht, wird Raithe zum Anführer eines Aufstands, der die Welt für immer verändern soll. Bereits erschienen: Band 1: "Rebellion" Band 2: "Zeitenfeuer"

Type: BOOK - Published: 2014-07-14 - Publisher: Princeton University Press
Under the premise that local history can illuminate aspects of the past in ways that few works of broad historical synthesis can ever hope to equal, Christopher Friedrichs draws a comprehensive portrait of the small German city of Nördlingen during a turbulent century and a half of early modern history. In doing so he explores the transition from a traditional to a modern way of life. Originally published in 1980. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

Technology of one kind or another has always been a central ingredient in war. The Spartan king Archidamus, for instance, reacted with alarm when first witnessing a weapon that could shoot darts through the air. And yet during the past two centuries technology has played an unprecedented role in military affairs and thinking, and in the overall conduct of war. In addition, the impact of new technology on warfare has brought major social and cultural changes. This volume explores the relationship between war, technology, and modern society over the course of the last several centuries. The two world wars, total conflicts in which industrial technology took a terrible human toll, brought great changes to the practice of organized violence among nations; even so many aspect of military life and values remained largely unaffected. In the latter half of the twentieth century, technology in the form of nuclear deterrence appears to have prevented the global conflagration of world war while complicating and fueling ferocious regional contests. A stimulating fusion of military and social history, extending back to the eighteenth century, and with contributions from such leading historians as Brian Bond, Paddy Griffith, and Neil McMillen, War in the Age of Technology

Sullivan Seit die Seherin Suri den mächtigen Gilarabryn erschaffen hat, herrscht eine Art Patt-Situation im Krieg der Rhune gegen ihre falschen Götter, die Fhrey.

Mittlerweile haben auch die Fhrey in der mächtigen Waffe den Schlüssel zum Sieg erkannt – und entführen Suri. Gegen den ausdrücklichen Befehl von Nyphron und Persephone wagt eine kleine Gruppe von Helden das Unmögliche, um die Seherin zu retten: Nur wenn sie sterben und durch die Lande der Toten reisen, können sie die Hauptstadt der Fhrey betreten, wo Suri gefangen gehalten wird.

The Age of Total War, 1860–1945

Type: BOOK - Published: 2010-09-16 - Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers
What is total war? Definitions abound, but one thing is certain—the concept of total war has come to be seen as a defining concept of the modern age. In The Age of Total War, celebrated historian Jeremy Black explores the rise and demise of an era of total war, which he defines in terms of the intensity of the struggle, the range (geographical and/or chronological) of conflict, the nature of the goals, and the extent to which civil society was involved. He contends that this era (roughly 1860–1945) was markedly different from the warfare that characterized earlier periods, and that it is very different from the situation that has evolved since, with its emphasis on asymmetrical conflict and limited warfare. Acknowledging that various definitions are problematic and often contradictory, Black argues that 1860 to 1945 was an era in which the prospect of war and the consequences of it were crucially important for human history. Trends and developments subsequent to 1945 have combined, Black asserts, to make a return to total war unlikely.

Type: BOOK - Published: 2021-05-25 - Publisher: Yale University Press
An informed modern plan for post-2020 American foreign policy that avoids the opposing dangers of retrenchment and overextension Russia and China are both believed to have “grand strategies”—detailed sets of national security goals backed by means, and plans, to pursue them. In the United States, policy makers have tried to articulate similar concepts but have failed to reach a widespread consensus since the Cold War ended. While the United States has been the world’s prominent superpower for over a generation, much American thinking has oscillated between the extremes of isolationist agendas versus interventionist and overly assertive ones. Drawing on historical precedents and weighing issues such as Russia’s resurgence, China’s great rise, North Korea’s nuclear machinations, and Middle East turmoil, Michael O’Hanlon presents a well-researched, ethically sound, and politically viable vision for American national security policy. He also proposes complementing the Pentagon’s set of “4+1” pre-existing threats with a new “4+1”: biological, nuclear, digital, climatic, and internal dangers.

The text for the NEW SOLDIER deals with the causes, symptoms and solutions to global terrorism, particularly Jihadist Islamic-based terrorism. The book is an expanded version of the essay “A Fearful Symmetry: A New Global Balance of Power?” for which the author was awarded the 2007 Grand Prize by the St Cyr Foundation, which supports the St. Cyr military academy established by Napoleon Bonaparte – in effect, France’s West Point. The work was unanimously awarded the First (Grand) Prize by a jury of four distinguished panelists, and later translated and published in French under the title, “Une Symétrie de la Peur : Vers un Nouvel Equilibre Mondial Des Puissances ? “ (Paul Wormser, trans.)(CLD Éditions, November 2008). The New Soldier is, in essence, a traditional soldier but one who is endowed with compassion, empathy and cultural understanding. This soldier is better able to navigate through the unknown terrain of ideological, emotional and psychological conflicts within the realm of global terrorism. The New Soldier is a strategic tool in combating global terrorism, and may be immediately deployed in multilateral forces. The practical uses of the New Soldier in the context of fragile states, particularly in terms of stabilizing and reconstructing war-torn
