READING: Hillary Clinton over de meest onvoorspelbare presidentsverkiezingen uit de geschiedenis Dit is de Nederlandstalige editie van het indrukwekkende boek van Hillary Clinton over de meest onvoorspelbare presidentsverkiezingen uit de geschiedenis. Persoonlijke onthullingen over de strijd met Donald Trump, over de campagne, Russische inmenging en hoe ze het onverwachte verlies verwerkte. Een boek voor iedereen die wil begrijpen wat er echt is gebeurd in 2016. ‘In het verleden had ik vaak het gevoel dat ik voorzichtig moest zijn in het openbaar. Alsof ik moest koorddansen zonder vangnet. Dat gevoel laat ik nu compleet varen. Ik zal alles vertellen.’ - Hillary Rodham Clinton. Bevrijd van alle beperkingen in politiek opzicht, vertelt Hillary hoe het was om de eerste vrouwelijke presidentskandidate te zijn in verkiezingen die werden gedomineerd door ongekende dieptepunten, wendingen die een romanschrijver niet had kunnen bedenken, Russische inmenging en een opponent die alle regels aan zijn laars lapte. In What happened vertelt ze hoe het was om het op te nemen tegen Donald Trump, welke fouten ze maakte, hoe ze omging met alle kritiek die ze kreeg en hoe ze het onverwachte verlies verwerkte. Hillary Clinton verloor de verkiezingen, maar is bij lange na niet gebroken of verslagen. Met haar meest persoonlijke memoires tot nu toe richt ze zich tot iedereen die wil begrijpen wat er echt is gebeurd in 2016.

READING: This current book describes my belief (with input from a great many people) as to how this country got to where it is today, where I fear it is going, and my absolute terror that the American people will elect Hillary in 2008. Why terror at her election? Because that will launch the country toward a totalitarian government. We no longer can believe that our elected officials are patriots. They are more acclimated to power and less concerned about the people and the country's history. The book is a departure from the others. It came to mind when watching a TV discussion group talking about whether Hillary would run for President in 2004. I was terrified that she would run and win. I then thought about it and decided I had some excellent reasons why she would not run in 2004 but would wait until 2008. The book goes into depth concerning the dangers to the Country of electing Hillary. My first three books: There Are No Bad Kids, "Never Underestimate the Arrogance or Stupidity of Government and High On Life were all published by 1st Books Library. The first was written as a result of a traumatic experience in our lives and the second describes what I believe created that trauma. "High On Life" creates a completely different atmosphere. The title came as the result of one of my children becoming hooked on cocaine. I faithfully believe that no one needs a narcotic to get high -- Life is the only high necessary!

ISBN 9789000341405
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Provocerend en uitgesproken In Wereldorde neemt Kissinger ons mee op een wereldreis langs de historische opvattingen over de ordening van de wereld. Hoe uiteenlopend deze opvattingen ook zijn, iedere beschaving zag zichzelf als het middelpunt van de wereld en beschouwde de eigen normen en waarden als universele standaard. In onze tijd speelt de internationale politiek zich af op wereldniveau. Tegenstrijdige historische opvattingen over de hoe de wereld in elkaar zit, of zou moeten zitten, komen met elkaar in aanraking. Maar de belangrijke spelers zijn onbekend met elkaars spelregels en een gemeenschappelijk doel is er niet. Wereldorde is een uniek boek waarin Kissinger laat zien hoe oude opvattingen terug te vinden zijn in hedendaagse conflictsituaties en hoe we - mogelijk - tot een vreedzame oplossing kunnen komen. Henry Alfred Kissinger werd geboren in Fürth (Duitsland) in 1923. Zijn familie verhuisde in 1938 naar New York, op de vlucht voor het naziregime. Als politicus en diplomaat is hij overal op de wereld geweest, stond presidenten met raad en daad terzijde en was nauw betrokken bij de grote politieke gebeurtenissen van onze tijd. Hij schreef vele boeken waaronder zijn memoires (Classic Memoirs), uitgegeven in drie boeken (2011-2012). In 1973 werd hem de Nobelprijs voor de Vrede toegekend.

The Book Security and Profit in China s Energy Policy

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: China has developed sophisticated hedging strategies to insure against risks in the international petroleum market. It has managed a growing net oil import gap and supply disruptions by maintaining a favorable energy mix, pursuing overseas equity oil production, building a state-owned tanker fleet and strategic petroleum reserve, establishing cross-border pipelines, and diversifying its energy resources and routes. Though it cannot be "secured," China's energy security can be "insured" by marrying government concern with commercial initiatives. This book comprehensively analyzes China's domestic, global, maritime, and continental petroleum strategies and policies, establishing a new theoretical framework that captures the interrelationship between security and profit. Arguing that hedging is central to China's energy-security policy, this volume links government concerns about security of supply to energy companies' search for profits, and by drawing important distinctions between threats and risks, peacetime and wartime contingencies, and pipeline and seaborne energy-supply routes, the study shifts scholarly focus away from securing and toward insuring an adequate oil supply and from controlling toward managing any disruptions to the sea lines of communication. The book is the most detailed and accurate look to date at how China has hedged its energy bets and how its behavior fits a hedging pattern.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: The first inside account to be published about Hillary Clinton's time as secretary of state, anchored by Ghattas's own perspective and her quest to understand America's place in the world In November 2008, Hillary Clinton agreed to work for her former rival. As President Barack Obama's secretary of state, she set out to repair America's image around the world—and her own. For the following four years, BBC foreign correspondent Kim Ghattas had unparalleled access to Clinton and her entourage, and she weaves a fast-paced, gripping account of life on the road with Clinton in The Secretary. With the perspective of one who is both an insider and an outsider, Ghattas draws on extensive interviews with Clinton, administration officials, and players in Washington as well as overseas, to paint an intimate and candid portrait of one of the most powerful global politicians. Filled with fresh insights, The Secretary provides a captivating analysis of Clinton's brand of diplomacy and the Obama administration's efforts to redefine American power in the twenty-first century. Populated with a cast of real-life characters, The Secretary tells the story of Clinton's transformation from popular but polarizing politician to America's envoy to the world in compelling detail and with all the tension of high stakes diplomacy. From her evolving relationship with President Obama to the drama of WikiLeaks and the turmoil of the Arab Spring, we see Clinton cheerfully boarding her plane at 3 a.m. after no sleep, reading the riot act to the Chinese, and going through her diplomatic checklist before signing on to war in Libya—all the while trying to restore American leadership in a rapidly changing world. Viewed through Ghattas's vantage point as a half-Dutch, half-Lebanese citizen who grew up in the crossfire of the Lebanese civil war, The Secretary is also the author's own journey as she seeks to answer the questions that haunted her childhood. How powerful is America really? And, if it is in decline, who or what will replace it and what will it mean for America and the world?

ISBN 9781134713042
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: This book is the first systematic examination of the emerging arms race in Asia. The global trade in arms is to a large degree underpinned by the strong demand for arms in Asia and the Middle East, the two largest arms export markets in the world. Of these two regions Asia has become particularly significant, led by the emergence of China and India as major powers. It is therefore not surprising that the rapid military modernisation in Asia, accompanied by significant increases in the size and sophistication of armed forces, has generated attention as to its trends, key characteristics, causes and implications. This phenomenon, which has become evident since the end of the Cold War, has also been widely described as an Asian 'arms race'. This book evaluates the key conceptual ideas which can shed light on this phenomenon, as well as examining the complex mix of internal, external and technological factors that have led to its emergence. The volume explores the way in which the arms race is leading ultimately to three distinctive blocs in the emerging geostrategic landscape: a loose bloc of US allies in the region; a counter-bloc of potential US adversaries; and a neutral bloc of states with industrial age armed forces whose allegiances will vary according to circumstances and geostrategic developments. The Arms Race in Asia concludes that if the emerging arms race is left unchecked, it is likely that Asia will increasingly become a region of instability, marked by conflicts and interstate wars. The book will be of great interest to students of Asian politics, strategic studies, defence studies, security studies and IR in general.

READING: From Martha Washington to Laura Bush, the wife of each U.S. president has found her place in history, often setting trends and doing important work for the nation.

Several others can be traced back to King John, William the Conqueror, Charlemagne, and Lady Godiva. Clearly organized and easy to use, the work includes not only ancestors but offspring, listing children and grandchildren for each woman. Dates of birth, death, and marriage of ancestors, children and grandchildren are included where known.
