Three years later his girlfriend (Fairuza Balk) and brother Danny (Edward Furlong) await his release, but discover that Derek is a changed man, ashamed of his past and no longer driven by hatred.

The Long War - CENTCOM, Grand Strategy, and Global Security (Paperback): John Morrissey The Long War - CENTCOM, Grand Strategy, and Global Security (Paperback)
John Morrissey
R592 Discovery Miles 5 920 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Nowhere has the U.S. military established more bases, lost more troops, or spent more money in the last thirty years than in the Middle East and Central Asia. These regions fall under the purview of United States Central Command (CENTCOM); not coincidentally, they include the most energy-rich places on earth. From its inception, CENTCOM was tasked with the military and economic security of this key strategic area, the safeguarding of commercial opportunities therein, and ultimately the policing of a pivotal yet precarious space in the broader global economy. CENTCOM calls this mission its ""Long War."" This book tells the story of that long war: a war underpinned by a range of entangled geopolitical and geoeconomic visions and involving the use of the most devastating Western interventionary violence of our time. Starting with a historical perspective, John Morrissey explores CENTCOM's Cold War origins and evolution, before addressing key elements of the command's grand strategy, including its interventionary rationales and use of the law in war. Engaging a wide range of scholarship on neoliberalism, imperialism, geopolitics, and Orientalism, the book then looks in-depth at the military interventions CENTCOM has spearheaded and critically assesses their consequences in terms of human geography. Recent books on CENTCOM have focused on command structures, intelligence issues, and interpersonal rivalries. In contrast, The Long War asks critical questions about CENTCOM's leading role in shaping and enacting U.S. foreign policy over the last thirty years. The book positions CENTCOM pivotally in the story of U.S. global ambition over this period by documenting its efforts to oversee a global security strategy defined in military-economic terms and enabled via specific legal-territorial tactics. This is an important new study on the blurring of war and economic aims on a global scale.

It would be the death of them both. Brother Sabon, pious servant of the Sun God, could never succumb to the charms of a young witch. He overcomes undead minions, vile cultists and assassins, the evil brood of the Death Goddess, how could his heart fall for an unbelieving, head-strong woman? His church wouldn't allow it, his fight against the forces of darkness would suffer for it, and his closest companions would chastise him. The world is filled with such evil, such danger, how could he dare to think of it, to think of love? The gods will intervene.

Adrift - Poems After the Death of a Child-and Other Writings (Paperback): Natalie Morrissey Adrift - Poems After the Death of a Child-and Other Writings (Paperback)
Natalie Morrissey; As told to John Morrissey
R278 Discovery Miles 2 780 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The death of a child is the greatest loss of all. Losing one's child is a non-negotiable experience that can cast one adrift in uncharted waters in a boat without anchor or rudder. Initially, one's mind is kept busy attending to necessary arrangements - but within a few days, the reality of loss sets in - and does not leave. The order of the day suddenly becomes disorder, and seeing it through is the ordeal at hand for emotional survival. Adrift: Poems After the Death of a Child was my attempt to sort things out in poetry after the death of our son John. It is story of loss, heart-rending sadness, and somber remembrance of our son; and yet, it is a story in poems that, in the telling, helps me to get through the trial. I hope that my story helps all who suffer the greatest loss of all.

Towards Coastal Resilience and Sustainability (Hardcover): C. Patrick Heidkamp, John Morrissey Towards Coastal Resilience and Sustainability (Hardcover)
C. Patrick Heidkamp, John Morrissey
R3,119 Discovery Miles 31 190 Out of stock

Coastal zones represent a frontline in the battle for sustainability, as coastal communities face unprecedented economic challenges. Coastal ecosystems are subject to overuse, loss of resilience and increased vulnerability. This book aims to interrogate the multi- scalar complexities in creating a more sustainable coastal zone. Sustainability transitions are geographical processes, which happen in situated, particular places. However, much contemporary discussion of transition is either aspatial or based on implicit assumptions about spatial homogeneity. This book addresses these limitations through an examination of socio- technological transitions with an explicitly spatial focus in the context of the coastal zone. The book begins by focusing on theoretical understandings of transition processes specific to the coastal zone and includes detailed empirical case studies. The second half of the book appraises governance initiatives in coastal zones and their efficacy. The authors conclude with an implicit theme of social and environmental justice in coastal sustainability transitions. Research will be of interest to practitioners, academics and decision- makers active in the sphere of coastal sustainability. The multi- disciplinary nature encourages accessibility for individuals working in the fields of Economic Geography, Regional Development, Public Policy and Planning, Environmental Studies, Social Geography and Sociology.

R1,021 Discovery Miles 10 210 Out of stock

As the global financial crisis enters its sixth year, this volume offers a wide-ranging critique of its handling. Academics in the field of social geography address the key political, economic and social shifts that have defined contemporary Ireland as it responds to the interrated collapses of the property market and the banking system. The concept of 'spatial justice' provides a cogent entry point for the authors into debates around austerity, equality and social justice. This volume enquires into the everyday concerns of citizens, planners and government officials alike. Each chapter undertakes a detailed examination of core aspects of the crisis and its management, including housing, planning and the environment, health, education, migration and unemployment. The analyses extend beyond the academy to questions of policy, governmentality, public participation and active citizenship. These contributions come from leading geographers across Ireland, the UK and North America.
