Nhan đề: Politics in Africa : a new beginning? / Carlene J. Edie
Số phân loại : 967.032 C109; Đặc điểm vật lý: xiv, 258 p. : ill., map ; 24 cm
     *Tóm tắt : Examining the idea that politics in Africa are influenced by both internal and external forces, POLITICS IN AFRICA evaluates the management of power by the post-colonial African state over the four decades of the 1960's through the 1990's. The text's goal is to show students the extent to which state-society relations in African countries have been transformed by the domestic and external pressures of the 1990's--and, in doing so, offer a context within which to understand Africa and its relationship with the world. This text is a part of the New Horizons in Comparative Politics Series      .

Nhan đề: Crossed swords : Pakistan, its army, and the wars within / Shuja Nawaz
Số phân loại : 970 SH510; Đặc điểm vật lý: xliv, 655 tr., [10] p. of plates : ill., maps ; 25 cm
     *Tóm tắt : Based on 30 years of research and analysis, this definitive book is a profound, multi-layered, and historical analysis of the nature and role of the Pakistan army in the country's polity as well as its turbulent relationship with the United States. Shuja Nawaz examines the army and Pakistan in both peace and war. Using many hitherto unpublished materials from the archives of the United States, the United Kingdom, and the General Headquarters of the Pakistan Army, as well as interviews with key military and political figures in Pakistan and the United States, he sheds light not only on the Pakistan Army and its US connections but also on Pakistan as a key Muslim country in one of the world's toughest neighborhoods. In doing so, he lays bare key facts about Pakistan's numerous wars with India and its many rounds of political musical chairs, as well as the Kargil conflict of 1999. He then draws lessons from this history that may help Pakistan end its wars within and create a stabler political entity      .

In the absence of a state, what defines an Acadian is elusive and while today’s Acadian community centred in New Brunswick is more confident than ever, it is entering a contentious debate about its future      .

Nhan đề: Hating America : a history / Barry Rubin, Judith Colp Rubin
Số phân loại : 973 B109; Đặc điểm vật lý: xi, 307 tr. ; 25 cm
     *Tóm tắt : In the early twenty-first century, the world has been seized by one of the most intense periods of anti-Americanism in history. Reviled as an imperialist power, an exporter of destructive capitalism, an arrogant crusader against Islam, and a rapacious over-consumer casually destroying the planet, it seems that the United States of America has rarely been less esteemed in the eyes of the world      .

Nhan đề: Hating America : a history / Barry Rubin, Judith Colp Rubin
Số phân loại : 973 B109; Đặc điểm vật lý: xi, 307 tr. ; 25 cm
     *Tóm tắt : With this powerful work, the Rubins trace the paradox that is America, a country that is both the most reviled and most envied land on earth. In the end, they demonstrate, anti-Americanism has often been a visceral response to the very idea-as well as both the ideals and policies--of America itself, its aggressive innovation, its self-confidence, and the challenge it poses to alternative ideologies      .

Số phân loại : 973.099 M345; Đặc điểm vật lý: 316Tr : Minh họa ; 22 cm
     *Tóm tắt : Because history is as fallible as the people who record it, many of the figures who have shaped our country have receded from public memory. In order to celebrate and call attention to these lives, Oxford University Press asked fifty accomplished personalities from a diverse range of interests to each select a person from the 24-volume American National Biography that they felt deserved more attention      .

Nhan đề: What hath God wrought : the transformation of America, 1815-1848 / Daniel Walker Howe
Số phân loại : 973.5 D107; Đặc điểm vật lý: xviii, 904 tr., [16] p. of plates : ill., maps ; 25 cm
     *Tóm tắt : Howe's panoramic narrative portrays revolutionary improvements in transportation and communications that accelerated the extension of the American empire. Railroads, canals, newspapers, and the telegraph dramatically lowered travel times and spurred the spread of information. These innovations prompted the emergence of mass political parties and stimulated America's economic development from an overwhelmingly rural country to a diversified economy in which commerce and industry took their place alongside agriculture. In his story, the author weaves together political and military events with social, economic, and cultural history. He examines the rise of Andrew Jackson and his Democratic party, but contends that John Quincy Adams and other Whigs--advocates of public education and economic integration, defenders of the rights of Indians, women, and African-Americans--were the true prophets of America's future      .

Số phân loại : 973.91 D249; Đặc điểm vật lý: xviii, 936Tr : Minh họa ; 25 cm
     *Tóm tắt : The Depression was both a disaster and an opportunity. As David Kennedy vividly demonstrates, the economic crisis of the 1930s was far more than a simple reaction to the alleged excesses of the 1920s. For more than a century before 1929, America's unbridled industrial revolution had gyrated through repeated boom and bust cycles, wastefully consuming capital and inflicting untold misery on city and countryside alike      .
