Green Backlash by Andrew Rowell Book Resume:

The tide is turning against environmentalism as the political right, industry and governments fight back. Green Backlash is a controversial expose of the anti-environmental movement. Tracing the rise of the backlash from the Wise Use movement in the USA, the author reveals its rapid spread worldwide: the anti-roads movement in the UK, forestry debates in Canada and Australia, marine resource issues in Europe, South-East Asia, and controversies such as the Brent Spar. The backlash is set to get worse as the resource wars intensify. This book offers a greater understanding of the challenges and threats facing global environmentalism, concluding that the environmental movement now has a chance to re-evaluate and change for the better to beat the backlash - a chance that must not be missed.

Moltke on the Art of War by Daniel Hughes Book Resume:

Field Marshal Helmuth Graf von Moltke is best known for his direction of the German/Prussian campaigns against Austria in 1866 and France in 1870-71, yet it was during his service as chief of the General Staff that he laid the foundation for the German way of war which would continue through 1945. Professor Daniel Hughes of the Air War College, in addition to editing and assisting with the translation of this selection of Moltke’s thoughts and theories on the art of war, has written an insightful commentary on “Moltke the Elder” that places him in the broader context of Prussian military theorist Carl von Clausewitz’s sometimes abstract philosophical ideas. The book also contains an extensive bibliographic and historiographic commentary that includes references to Moltke and his theories in the current literature in Germany, England, and the United States—a valuable aid to anyone doing research on the subject. This volume, in addition to its appeal to scholars, serves as an introduction to the theory of the German army, as well as a summary of Moltke’s enduring theoretical legacy. Praise for Moltke on the Art of War “Moltke molded the Prussian and ultimately the German army at a time of technological and economic change. For that reason . . . this book deserves a much wider audience than those interested in nineteenth-century military history. Readers will be particularly grateful for the editor’s careful explanation of terms that are easily mistranslated in English, and for concise and useful footnotes and bibliography. A model of fine editing.”—Foreign Affairs Magazine “This valuable work ably compiles the selected writings on the art of war of one of military history’s greatest geniuses. [Moltke’s] impact on American military thinking persists, especially in various military staff college curricula. Strongly recommended.”—Armed Forces Journal “A thoughtfully edited, well-translated anthology that merits a place in any serious collection on the craft of war in the modern Western world."—Journal of Military History

The Wisdom of John Muir by Anne Rowthorn Book Resume:

The Wisdom of John Muir marries the best aspects of a Muir anthology with the best aspects of a Muir biography. The fact that it is neither, and yet it is both, distinguishes this book from the many extant books on John Muir. Building on her lifelong passion for the work and philosophy of John Muir, author Anne Rowthorn has created this entirely new treatment for showcasing the great naturalist's philosophy and writings. By pairing carefully selected material from various stages of Muir's life, Rowthorn's book provides a view into the experiences, places, and people that inspired and informed Muir's words and beliefs. The reader feels able to join in with Muir's own discoveries and transformations over the arc of his life. Rowthorn is careful not to overstep her role: she stands back and lets Muir's words speak for themselves.

FINISH THE FIGHT will fit alongside important collections that tell the full story of America's fiercest women.

Plundering Paradise by Robin Broad,John Cavanagh Book Resume:

This gripping portrait of environmental politics chronicles the devastating destruction of the Philippine countryside and reveals how ordinary men and women are fighting back. Traveling through a land of lush rainforests, the authors have recorded the experiences of the people whose livelihoods are disappearing along with their country's natural resources. The result is an inspiring, informative account of how peasants, fishers, and other laborers have united to halt the plunder and to improve their lives. These people do not debate global warming—they know that their very lives depend on the land and oceans, so they block logging trucks, protest open-pit mining, and replant trees. In a country where nearly two-thirds of the children are impoverished, the reclaiming of natural resources is offering young people hope for a future. Plundering Paradise is essential reading for anyone interested in development, the global environment, and political life in the Third World.

L’ État néopatrimonial by Daniel C. Bach,Mamoudou Gazibo Book Resume:

Pourquoi le néopatrimonialisme est-il si fréquemment utilisé pour caractériser les systèmes politiques Africains ? Les pratiques auxquelles renvoie cette notion, qu’il s’agisse du clientélisme, de la corruption ou de la privatisation de l’État, sont pourtant présentes dans la plupart des pays, qu’ils soient ou non Africains. Afin de répondre à ce paradoxe, L’État néopatrimonial propose une exploration théorique et comparative de la diversité des trajectoires et usages contemporains du concept. À partir d’une discussion des références initiales de Max Weber au patrimonialisme, les différentes contributions abordent le néopatrimonialisme dans ses rapports avec l’analyse de la démocratisation, des relations internationales, de la sociologie des conflits et de l’économie du développement. L’ouvrage renouvelle les débats sur le néopatrimonialisme en Afrique, tout en les élargissant également à l’Asie, l’Europe et l’Amérique latine à travers des études de cas.

The Nobel Prize–nominated Kenyan writer’s powerful first novel Two brothers, Njoroge and Kamau, stand on a garbage heap and look into their futures: Njoroge is to attend school, while Kamau will train to be a carpenter. But this is Kenya, and the times are against them: In the forests, the Mau Mau is waging war against the white government, and the two brothers and their family need to decide where their loyalties lie. For the practical Kamau, the choice is simple, but for Njoroge the scholar, the dream of progress through learning is a hard one to give up. The first East African novel published in English, Weep Not, Child explores the effects of the infamous Mau Mau uprising on the lives of ordinary men and women, and on one family in particular.

Human Impacts on Amazonia by Darrell A. Posey,Michael J. Balick Book Resume:

The contributors argue that by protecting and drawing on local knowledge and values, further environmental ruin can be avoided.

POLITIQUE AFRICAINE N-088-Libéria,Sierra Leone, Guinée : la régionalisation de la guerre by COLLECTIF Book Resume:

L'apparition d'un mouvement insurgé de l'Ouest dans la crise ivoirienne à l'automne 2002, où la forte présence de combattants libériens fait peu de doute, n'est peut-être pas l'ultime développement d'une série de conflits civils qui, depuis plus de dix ans, ont déchiré le Libéria, la Sierra Leone et, de façon plus épisodique, certaines zones de la Guinée. En contrepoint à une analyse centrée sur l'avidité des rebelles et la quête des diamants, ou à une vision de l'intervention internationale salvatrice, l'étude de ces conflits met en lumière d'autres facettes qui peuvent servir à une meilleure compréhension des conditions de la paix et à une normalisation moins fragile que celle dont bénéficie aujourd'hui la Sierra Leone.

Thousands of tourists visit the Northern California groves each year. The story of the California redwood lumber industry also tells the stories of the men, the trains, and the land. This book is dedicated to the pioneer lumbermen who succeeded in launching careers as mill men by overcoming the tremendous obstacle of moving the giant redwoods from the woods to the mill, by inventing equipment strong enough to handle the gigantic logs, and by finding suitable markets for their lumber throughout the Pacific area; and to Augustus William Ericson and the other early photographers who preserved the early history of logging in pictures.

POLITIQUE AFRICAINE N-082-Figures de la réussite et imaginaires politiques by Collectif Book Resume:

L'ajustement structurel et la crise des Etats postcoloniaux ont dévalué l'image de lcertaines figures sociales de la réussite et du pouvoir, comme celles du fonctionnaire, du "DG" ou de l'officier, qui occupaient une place centrale dans les imaginaires populaires. De nouvelles trajectoires d'ascension se sont affirmées, à l'interface du public et du privé, du formel et de l'informel, du licite et de l'illicite. Ce dossier analyse la manière dont les sociétés africaines post- ajustement s'inscrivent au quotidien dans les imaginaires globalisés de la "civilisation matérielle du succès".
