Strangers from a Different Shore: A History of Asian Americans

1209 руб.
In an extraordinary blend of narrative history, personal recollection, & oral testimony, the author presents a sweeping history of Asian Americans. He writes of the Chinese who laid tracks for the transcontinental railroad, of plantation laborers in the canefields of Hawaii, of "picture brides" marrying strangers in the hope of becoming part of the American dream. He tells stories of Japanese Americans behind the barbed wire of U.S. internment camps during World War II, Hmong refugees tragically unable to adjust to Wisconsin's alien climate & culture, & Asian American students stigmatized by the stereotype of the "model minority". This is a powerful & moving work that will resonate for all Americans, who together make up a nation of immigrants from other shores.

It is December 6 1941. America stands at the brink of World War II. Last hopes for peace are shattered when Japanese squadrons bomb Pearl Harbor. Los Angeles has been a haven for loyal Japanese-Americans – but now, war fever and race hate grip the city and the Japanese internment begins. The hellish murder of a Japanese family summons three men and one woman. William H. Parker is a captain on the Los Angeles Police. He’s superbly gifted, corrosively ambitious, liquored-up and consumed by dubious ideology. He is bitterly at odds with Sergeant Dudley Smith – Irish emigre, ex-IRA killer, fledgling war profiteer. Kay Lake is a 21-year-old dilettante looking for adventure. Hideo Ashida is a police chemist and the only Japanese on the L.A. cop payroll. The investigation throws them together and rips them apart. The crime becomes a political storm centre that brilliantly illuminates these four driven souls – comrades, rivals, lovers, history’s pawns. Perfidia is a novel of astonishments. It is World War II as you have never seen it, and Los Angeles as James Ellroy has never written it before. Here, he gives us the party at the edge of the abyss and the precipice of America’s ascendance. Perfidia is that moment, spellbindingly captured. It beckons us to solve a great crime that, in its turn, explicates the crime of war itself. It is a great American novel.

Understanding Preventive Wars

4139 руб.
Why did Japanese policy makers decide to attack the United States while aware of their very limited chance of success in war? Historical facts indicate that the Japanese decision could be explained by the theoretical concept of preventive war: Japan decided to go to war in December 1941 in order to avoid having to fight a more costly war later. There are, however, apparent weaknesses in the concept of preventive war in explaining Japanese leaders’ way of thinking on the eve of the Pacific War. This book proposes a revised version of the concept of preventive war that better explains the Japanese decision. According to this concept, war is undertaken by a country incapable of adapting domestically to a systemic changing power differential. Lacking the capacity to increase sufficiently its national power or to undergo the necessary domestic transformations in order to adjust to the evolving constraints imposed by the systemic environment, the country undertakes preventive war as a means to directly affect the power differential. The analysis sheds light on the underdeveloped concept of preventive war, and provides a fresh look on the causes of the Pacific War.

The Making of an Ally

This book analyzes the complex history of U.S.-Japanese relations after World War II. Archenemies before the Pacific War (1941-45), the two nations embraced a peculiarly symbiotic relationship during the American occupation of Japan (1945-51). From the drafting of the Japanese Constitution to the Security Treaties and the long-term stationing of American troops, the influence of the U.S. can be seen and felt in many aspects of Japanese political and everyday life. That there was and continues to be widespread opposition and protest by the people against this influence is not so well-known, nor are the many other ramifications of American influence on Japanese society, such as disorientation and a surge of nationalism and historical revisionism. This book wants to shed some light on the question of how and to what extent U.S. politics have contributed to the making of contemporary Japan by drawing both on literature by leading experts on Japan as well as on The Japan Times, the country's largest English newspaper, whose articles through time (1945-today) are used to illustrate the ups and downs that U.S.-Japanese relations have undergone. This book wants to provide both an historical overview as well as an insight into Japanese politics and society today in order to demonstrate the extent to which the U.S. have indeed shaped, or re-shaped Japan.

The book negotiates, dissects, and reconstructs the image of the Asian-Americans, particularly the Chinese and the Japanese, in the Western consciousness. These races are often viewed in the image of the threatening, enigmatic, backward, and yellow-skinned cunning people. The book dissects not only how these negative stereotypical images are fundamentally based on Western premises, but also it attempts to reveal their untruthfulness and deceptiveness. It tackles and compares some selected plays by two Asian-American playwrights: David Henry Hwang, a Chinese-American dramatist, and Philip Kan Gotanda, a Japanese-American playwright, in the light of certain critical, cultural notions.

Decisions in Time of Crisis

7790 руб.
This book aims to tackle the United State's decision of entering a second war against Iraq in 2003. The decision is studied as a phenomenon resulting from a national and international bargain (two level game). In a first chapter the context as well as the actors are introduced. The emphasis is focused on the Bush System: a basis of governing introduced by the US President George W. Bush, that overruled the national and international practices of governing of his administrations. The window of opportunity represented by the September 11 events is also put forward in order to explain the conditions of the intervention. The second chapter deals with the study of the decision-making process through paradigms such as these of Robert Putnam and Graham Allison. Coming to the conclusion that these lenses of analysis are still perfectible in order to explain the remaining blurriness of the decision-making process, I share the results of my very own research in a last chapter. The third chapter hence focuses on the concept of collusion in the field of political science as a paradigm. It is introduced, conceptualized and applied to the subject of this thesis in order to enlighten it.

The 4% Solution: Unleashing the Economic Growth America Needs

2901 руб.
Foreword by President George W. BushWith contributions from world renowned economists and Nobel prizewinners, The 4% Solution is a blueprint for restoring America’s economic health   The United States is reaching a pivotal point in its economic history. Millions of Americans owe more on their homes than they are worth, long-term unemployment is alarmingly high, and the Congressional Budget Office is projecting a sustainable growth rate of only 2.3%—a full percentage point below the average for the past sixty years. Unless a turnaround comes quickly, the United States could be mired in debt for years to come and millions of Americans will be pushed to the sidelines of the economy.   The 4% Solution offers clear and unflinching ideas on how to revive America’s economy. It sets a positive economic goal and asks some of the top economic minds on how to achieve it. With a focus on removing government constraints, The 4% Solution defines the policies that will allow Americans to save, invest, and create the jobs that the United States needs.   The 4% Solution draws on the best minds in the business, including five Nobel laureates:   ·         Robert E. Lucas, Jr., on the history and future of economic growth ·         Gary S. Becker on why we need immigrants in order to grow ·         Edward Prescott on the cost (to growth) of the welfare state ·         Vernon Smith on why housing leads us into and out of recessions ·         Myron Scholes on why we need to innovate in order to grow the economy

New York Times bestselling author Dale Brown goes beyond the headlines in this high-tech, high-tension military thriller in which a resurgent Russia enflames sectarian unrest and violence in Ukraine and Poland, setting off a stealth robotic war and escalating an international crisis. In the spring of 2017, the U.S. economy is rebounding under President Stacy Anne Barbeau, the country’s first female president. But her leadership is about to be severely tested: Russian president Gennadiy Gryzlov has sent Special Troops, disguised as pro-Russian activists, into Ukraine and Moldova. Though NATO is outraged, its response is tepid. Refusing to let Russian aggression go unpunished, former U.S. president Kevin Martindale approaches Polish president Peter Wilk with a radical solution: a counterattack using a covert force of Cybernetic Infantry Device (CID): manned robots. Underwritten by the wealthy Wilk, Operation Iron Wolf is launched—without the knowledge of the Americans or its NATO partners. The CID’s initial strikes are successful, infuriating Gryzlov and propelling President Barbeau to pledge western help to investigate the attack. With international tensions at the boiling point, Martindale’s secret alliance, supported by the best military technology, is determined to outmaneuver the Russians. In this battle that will determine the fate of Eastern Europe, just which side will win?

Ronald Reagan: New Deal Republican Ronald Reagan: New Deal Republican Новинка

Ronald Reagan: New Deal Republican

2150 руб.
In this sure to be controversial book in the vein of The Forgotten Man, a political analyst argues that conservative icon Ronald Reagan was not an enemy of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the New Deal, but his true heir and the popular program’s ultimate savior. Conventional political wisdom views the two most consequential presidents of the twentieth-century—FDR and Ronald Reagan—as ideological opposites. FDR is hailed as the champion of big-government progressivism manifested in the New Deal. Reagan is seen as the crusader for conservatism dedicated to small government and free markets. But Henry Olsen argues that this assumption is wrong. In The Working Class Republican, Olsen contends that the historical record clearly shows that Franklin Roosevelt and the New Deal itself were more conservative than either Democrats or Republicans believe, and that Ronald Reagan was more progressive than most contemporary Republicans understand. Olsen cuts through political mythology to set the record straight, revealing how Reagan—a longtime Democrat until FDR’s successors lost his vision in the 1960s—saw himself as FDR’s natural heir, carrying forward the basic promises of the New Deal: that every American deserves comfort, dignity, and respect provided they work to the best of their ability. Olsen corrects faulty assumptions driving today’s politics. Conservative Republican political victories over the last thirty years have not been a rejection of the New Deal’s promises, he demonstrates, but rather a representation of the electorate’s desire for their success—which Americans see as fulfilling the vision of the nation’s founding. For the good of all citizens and the GOP, he implores Republicans to once again become a party of "FDR Conservatives"—to rediscover and support the basic elements of FDR (and Reagan’s) vision.

The Japanese Comfort Women and Sexual Slavery during the China and Pacific Wars

3062 руб.
The Japanese military was responsible for the sexual enslavement of thousands of women and girls in Asia and the Pacific during the China and Pacific wars under the guise of providing 'comfort' for battle-weary troops. Campaigns for justice and reparations for 'comfort women' since the early 1990s have highlighted the magnitude of the human rights crimes committed against Korean, Chinese and other Asian women by Japanese soldiers after they invaded the Chinese mainland in 1937. These campaigns, however, say little about the origins of the system or its initial victims. The Japanese Comfort Women and Sexual Slavery during the China and Pacific Wars explores the origins of the Japanese military's system of sexual slavery and illustrates how Japanese women were its initial victims.

First-order basin morphology has been relatively ignored in geomorphological researches, particularly in complicated geology areas. Therefore, this study was done with an aim to explore geomorphology of the first-order basins in the Siwalik Hills. Using multivariate morphological analysis, the study found that 11,200 first-order basins in the Siwalik Hills were represented by seven morphometric variables and eight basin types. The study demonstrated that a unit of first-order basin is suitable to detect morphological characteristics of geologically complex area. Leading morphometric variables of the basins demonstrated the influence of the neo-tectonics, geological structure (dipping), lithostratigraphy, and landslide process in the Siwalik Hills. Morphology of the Siwaliks is more variable than the resistant units of the Lesser Himalaya. This study contributed to the systematic study of the first-order basins, which can be applied elsewhere.

All large Japanese companies have similar systems for adapting and training new hires. Newcomers undergo intensive induction training which includes both skill transfer and socialization followed by on-the- job training, where new hires can experience different sides of the company environment on a rotational basis. In order to challenge the institutionalized large Japanese companies'' onboarding environment, this book is asking the question whether e-learning activities could play a role in the interaction between companies and newcomers, allow the latter to act more individually during the adaptation process and thus influence their learning. In the process of setting the frames of this relationship, the present book is explaining the ‘systematic'' nature of e-learning and its accelerating effects on organizational learning, and proposes a vision of a contemporary onboarding process.

Allan Winkler M. Home Front U.S.A. America During World War II

1418.8 руб.
New scholarship on World War II continues to broaden our understanding. With each passing year we know more about the triumphs and the tragedies of America’s involvement in the momentous conflict. Tapping into this greater awareness of the accomplishments of both soldiers and civilians and a better recognition of the consequences of decisions made, Allan Winkler presents the third edition of his highly popular series volume. Informed by the latest historical literature and featuring many new thoughtfully chosen photographs, the third edition of Home Front U.S.A. continues to ponder the question of «the good war,» the moral implications of the use of the atomic bomb, the implications of expanding wartime roles for women, African Americans, American Jews, the imprisonment of Japanese Americans at the hands of the federal government, and the experiences of the many other people who, though relegated to the fringe of mainstream society, contributed in important ways to the nation's successful prosecution of its greatest challenge.

A Square Meal

2073 руб.
From the author of the acclaimed 97 Orchard and her husband, a culinary historian, an in-depth exploration of the greatest food crisis the nation has ever faced—the Great Depression—and how it transformed America’s culinary culture. The decade-long Great Depression, a period of shifts in the country’s political and social landscape, forever changed the way America eats. Before 1929, America’s relationship with food was defined by abundance. But the collapse of the economy, in both urban and rural America, left a quarter of all Americans out of work and undernourished—shattering long-held assumptions about the limitlessness of the national larder. In 1933, as women struggled to feed their families, President Roosevelt reversed long-standing biases toward government-sponsored “food charity.” For the first time in American history, the federal government assumed, for a while, responsibility for feeding its citizens. The effects were widespread. Championed by Eleanor Roosevelt, “home economists” who had long fought to bring science into the kitchen rose to national stature. Tapping into America’s long-standing ambivalence toward culinary enjoyment, they imposed their vision of a sturdy, utilitarian cuisine on the American dinner table. Through the Bureau of Home Economics, these women led a sweeping campaign to instill dietary recommendations, the forerunners of today’s Dietary Guidelines for Americans. At the same time, rising food conglomerates introduced packaged and processed foods that gave rise to a new American cuisine based on speed and convenience. This movement toward a homogenized national cuisine sparked a revival of American regional cooking. In the ensuing decades, the tension between local traditions and culinary science has defined our national cuisine—a battle that continues today. A Square Meal examines the impact of economic contraction and environmental disaster on how Americans ate then—and the lessons and insights those experiences may hold for us today. A Square Meal features 25 black-and-white photographs.

The European Union's Shaping of the International Legal Order

3241 руб.
The European Union undoubtedly plays an important role in the formation of international law. This takes place through a number of avenues ranging from the simple existence of this supranational legal order within the sphere of international law to the actual influencing of international legal order. With contributions by leading scholars, this collection of essays constructs and analyses a new and stimulating approach in which the European Union is perceived as an active co-creator of the international legal order on a variety of planes. Providing concrete examples of the European Union's approach to the international legal order in different policy fields, this book will be a key reference point for a new active paradigm of EU external relations law.

Blood and Sand

2304 руб.
A lively, revelatory popular history that tells the story of both the Suez Crisis and the Hungarian Revolution of 1956—a tale of conspiracy and revolutions, spies and terrorists, kidnappings and assassination plots, the fall of the British Empire and the rise of American hegemony under the heroic leadership of President Dwight D. Eisenhower—which shaped the Middle East and Europe we know today. The year 1956 was a turning point in history. Over sixteen extraordinary days in October and November of that year, the twin crises involving Suez and Hungary pushed the world to the brink of a nuclear conflict and what many at the time were calling World War III. Blood and Sand delivers this story in an hour-by-hour account through a fascinating international cast of characters: Anthony Eden, the British prime minister, caught in a trap of his own making; Gamal Abdel Nasser, the bold young populist leader of Egypt; David Ben-Gurion, the aging Zionist hero of Israel; Guy Mollet, the bellicose French prime minister; and Dwight D. Eisenhower, the American president, torn between an old world order and a new one in the very same week that his own fate as president was to be decided by the American people. This is a revelatory history of these dramatic events and people, for the first time setting both crises in the context of the global Cold War, the Arab-Israeli conflict, and the treacherous power politics of imperialism and oil. Blood and Sand resonates strikingly with the problems of oil control, religious fundamentalism, and international unity that face the world today, and is essential reading for anyone concerned with the state of the modern Middle East and Europe. Blood and Sand includes 25-30 black-and-white photographs.

The New American Militarism: How Americans Are Seduced by War

1854 руб.
In this provocative book, Andrew Bacevich warns of a dangerous dual obsession that has taken hold of Americans, both conservatives and liberals alike. It is a marriage of militarism and utopian ideology, of unprecedented military might wed to a blind faith in the universality of American values. This mindset, Bacevich warns, invites endless war and the ever-deepening militarization of U.S. policy. It promises not to perfect but to pervert American ideals and to accelerate the hollowing out of American democracy. In The New American Militarism, Bacevich examines the origins and implications of this misguided enterprise. He shows how American militarism emerged as a reaction to the Vietnam War, when various groups in American society -soldiers, politicians on the make, intellectuals, strategists, Christian evangelicals, even purveyors of pop culture-came to see the revival of military power and the celebration of military values as the antidote to all the ills besetting the country as a consequence of Vietnam and the 1960s. The upshot, acutely evident in the aftermath of 9/11, has been a revival of vast ambitions, this time coupled with a pronounced affinity for the sword. Bacevich urges Americans to restore a sense of realism and a sense of proportion to U.S. policy. He proposes, in short, to bring American purposes and American methods-especially with regard to the role of the military-back into harmony with the nation's founding ideals. For this edition, Bacevich has written a new Afterword in which he considers how American militarism has changed in the past five years. He explores in particular how this ideology has functioned under Barack Obama, who ran for president on a campaign based on hope for change and for a new beginning. Despite such rhetoric, Bacevich powerfully suggests, the attitudes and arrangements giving rise to the new American militarism remain intact and inviolable as ever.

The Ethnic Vision of Toni Morrison

5490 руб.
A perusal of the novels of Toni Morrison is a unique experience for the sheer reason of the geographical distance between America and India. Someone has rightly said, “Half the world does not know how the other half lives”. The reality of Afro Americans can only be felt superficially through newspaper accounts .A deliberate effort to dig up the well springs of this vast deluge reveals ‘many a gem of purest ray serene’ ,as also the force of the current which is proving the words of DuBois , “The problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color –line.” Morrison has shown awareness of this fact in all her works. Reading her novels is to gain intimate knowledge about the blacks of America not only at present, but to get acquainted with the very genes which determine the peculiar characteristics of this ethnic group. The nomenclature has to change significantly because of the hybrid culture modes of belief and action followed by Afro –Americans .Black Americans now are an integral part of the American culture, which is getting stronger and stronger in the practice of the statement, “We hold these truths to be self evident: that all men are created equal."

Mode-Locking of Lasers With Cascaded Quadratic Nonlinearity

5790 руб.
This book explores the use of second order nonlinear optical processes for efficient passive mode-locking of laser. Second order processes help make the system fully solid state and compact. Two second order processes give the effect of third order, which is exploited here to realize self starting, stable and power-scalable mode-locking. The book also presents the realization of negative feedback required for the stability of mode-locking by the use of second order nonlinear process again. Starting from the basics of nonlinear optics and the theory of mode-locking, the experimental realization of mode-locking of lasers with cascaded quadratic nonlinearity is presented in a lucid way.

Health Care Reform and American Politics

5557 руб.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act signed by President Obama in March 2010 is a landmark in U.S. social legislation, and the Supreme Court's recent decision upholding the Act has ensured that it will remain the law of the land. The new law extends health insurance to nearly all Americans, fulfilling a century-long quest and bringing the United States to parity with other industrial nations. Affordable Care aims to control rapidly rising health care costs and promises to make the United States more equal, reversing four decades of rising disparities between the very rich and everyone else. Millions of people of modest means will gain new benefits and protections from insurance company abuses - and the tab will be paid by privileged corporations and the very rich.

Capital Structure during the crisis of 2007-2009

4839 руб.
This thesis aims to explain the choice of capital structure in the times of crisis (2007-2009) for the U.S.A. real sector companies. The two main theories used are the trade-off theory and pecking order theory. The essential of the pecking order theory is that manager''s capital structure decisions are influenced by the market perceptions of managers'' superior information. The trade-off theory provides support for manager''s trade off between benefits and costs of debt. The conventional model is also used in the analysis in order to increase the robustness of the results. We find that the dynamic partial-adjustment model of the trade-off theory seems to explain better the choice of capital structure in the analyzed period than pecking order theory

Some Aspects of Discrete Probability Distributions of order k

4839 руб.
One of the important directions of research in the theory of discrete probability distribution is to develop/obtain a large class/family of probability distributions and investigate their various properties, problem of estimation, data fitting, etc. This book deals with the study of various distributions of order k, their distributional properties etc. to some new class of discrete probability distributions. An overview of discrete probability distributions of order k has been elaborated followed by the study of a class of Quasi Binomial distributions of order k, its probability function by considering Abel''s generalization of the Binomial formula and some of their inferential properties have been discussed. Next, a family of univariate Abel series distributions of order k, some of their important properties have been found out. The multivariate case of the family of Abel series distributions of order k have been defined and discussed. Some of their inferential properties have been mentioned. Finally, zero-modified distributions of order k, such as Binomial distribution of order k, Poisson distribution of order k, etc. have been pointed out.

Empathy and alterity in G.W. Bush's representation of immigrants

7490 руб.
In 2001, when President George W. Bush took office, and in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, the wide American public was oblivious of the metamorphosis which immigration policy was initiating. The scarce reference to immigrants and immigration made by President G.W. Bush in his speeches, in sharp contrast with the ambitious reform of the immigration law undertook by his team, are approached in the light of complex political, institutional and cultural conjunctures, past and present. This book offers a corpus-driven analysis of 1,456 presidential speeches given between 2001 and 2009. It identifies and discusses those linguistic features which conduce to the discursive 'othering' of immigrants and ponders on the possibility that, in the future, the shift towards empathy at discourse level may allow consequential change to take place in the actual lives of the immigrants.

The year 2010 proved pivotal in American politics. It began with the president signing the Affordable Care Act, giving Americans universal (or so it was claimed) access to health insurance – something proposed first by Teddy Roosevelt a century earlier. It ended with a Republican takeover of the House of Representatives thanks to the reactionary Tea Party faction and corporate money spent to stir up the rightist grass roots. Outside the US, Britain elected a coalition government of Tories and Liberal Democrats, the latter's first taste of power in decades. Greece continued to sink under the weight of its debts, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq-Nam continued to waste lives and money, and Wikileaks released thousands of largely irrelevant classified documents that still managed to upset the powers that be.

A number of women were sexually enslaved by the Japanese military during the Second World War and were known as ''comfort women''. It is a wrongful action of the Japanese state in the past which still brings the international attention. In order to overcome the past, such wrong doings should be considered in the context of legal responsibility of the state. Legal responsibility is distinguished from moral responsibility; state responsibility differs from individual responsibility. Seeking the legal responsibility of the state is an important process to achieve proper justice in the international community.

The Sex-Role Egalitarian Attitudes of African Americans

5490 руб.
The gender role socialization experiences of African Americans have been extensively documented. Many of these authors have made cross-cultural comparisons regarding the sex-role egalitarian attitudes of women and men, particularly, among African Americans and Caucasians. It has been asserted that African Americans exhibit greater flexibility in gender roles and express a higher degree of sex-role egalitarian attitudes versus some other ethnic groups. However, recent research has revealed results which counter the argument that African Americans exhibit a high degree of sex-role egalitarianism attitudes. This book provides detailed information on the sex-role egalitarianism attitudes of some middle-class African Americans, and the gender role socialization and life experiences that have contributed to these beliefs. The results shared in this book support and expand existing literature on themes relevant to understanding the gender role socialization experiences of some African Americans to include installation of religious values, diversity in roles assumed by African American women, and perceived ethnic cultural differences in the gender role socialization experience.
