Understanding Peacekeeping

Understanding Peacekeeping Lowest new price: $14.95
Lowest used price: $14.99
List price: $79.95
Author: Alex J. Bellamy
Brand: Brand: Polity

Understanding Peacekeeping provides a comprehensive and up to date introduction to the theory, practice and politics of contemporary peacekeeping. It evaluates the changing characteristics of the contemporary environment in which peacekeepers operate, what role peacekeeping plays in wider processes of global politics, the growing impact of non-state actors, and the major challenges facing peacekeepers in the future.





Drawing on a wide range of historical and contemporary case studies, including: Afghanistan; Cambodia, Cyprus; the Democratic Republic of Congo; East Timor; El Salvador; Haiti, Liberia; Rwanda; Sierra Leone; Somalia; and the former Yugoslavia, this book develops an original conceptual framework to chart the evolution of the role of peacekeeping in global politics, and highlights the unique characteristics of different types of peacekeeping operations. Part 1 examines concepts and issues related to peacekeeping in global politics. Part 2 charts the historical development of peacekeeping from 1945 to the present. In Part 3, separate chapters are devoted to different types of peacekeeping operations: traditional peacekeeping; managing transition; wider peacekeeping; peace enforcement; and peace support operations. Part 4 looks forward and examines developments in global politics that are presenting serious challenges to the concept and practice of peacekeeping, namely, globalization, the privatization of security, preventing violent conflict, and the establishment of protectorates.





Understanding Peacekeeping will be essential reading for students and scholars of peace and conflict studies, security studies, and international relations.

Piltdown Man: The Secret Life of Charles Dawson (Revealing History) Lowest new price: $25.01

Author: Miles Russell
Brand: Brand: Tempus

The human and animal remains discovered almost 100 years ago at Piltdown, near Lewes in Sussex were at the time hailed as the “missing link” between ape and man. It was not until 1953 that modern analysis conclusively revealed an ingenious hoax. The perpetrator was almost certainly the antiquarian excavator Charles Dawson who, as Miles Russell shows, was responsible for 16 other archaeological forgeries during his lifetime.

The Criminal Law Handbook (Know Your Rights Survive The System)

The Criminal Law Handbook (Know Your Rights Survive The System) Lowest new price: $74.78
Lowest used price: $5.00
Author: Paul Bergman and Sara J. Berman-Barrett
Brand: Brand: NOLO PRESS

Criminal law rules and procedures, explained in plain English.

The criminal justice system becomes increasingly complex each year as new laws and decisions can change legal standards dramatically. And at a time when even law enforcement is being affected by hiring freezes and budget cuts, the result is fewer resources and public programs for those accused of crimes, and their friends and families. That's why it's crucial that you have access to clear and complete explanations of all aspects of criminal law and procedure.

The Criminal Law Handbook answers your questions about every part of a criminal case, from cops to crooks. Find out everything you've ever wanted to know about how the system works, and the how and why police, lawyers and judges doing what they do. It covers:

  • arrests
  • booking
  • preliminary hearings
  • charges
  • bail
  • courts
  • arraignment
  • search and seizure
  • defenses
  • evidence
  • trials
  • plea bargains
  • sentencing
  • juveniles, and
  • "crimespeak," the language commonly used in criminal statutes.

    The revised 12th edition covers all new Supreme Court rulings, as well as completely updated, meticulously researched changes to case law and new information on domestic violence law.

    Emergency Incident Risk Management: A Safety and Health Perspective

    Emergency Incident Risk Management: A Safety and Health Perspective Lowest used price: $99.99
    Author: J.D. Kipp

    Emergency Incident Risk Management: A Safety & Health Perspective
    Jonathan D. Kipp, Murrey E. Loflin
    While risk management techniques have been successfully used to reduce the potential for physical harm to the public, these proven methods, strangely enough, have not been applied to one of the most hazardous environments of all fire fighting operations. The result is that more than 100,000 injuries occur to fire fighters each year. Emergency Incident Risk Management shows fire chiefs, fire officers, safety officers, and risk managers for the first time anywhere how to develop and implement a comprehensive risk management program that can sharply reduce on-the-job fatalities, injuries, and harmful exposures while minimizing property and equipment damage. Expanding on the information presented in the National Fire Protection Association 1500 Handbook, this thorough guide covers every phase of effective risk management from assigning roles and preplanning, through all the steps in a solid risk management plan, to handling actual emergency incidents. With the help of illuminating examples, Emergency Incident Risk Management demonstrates how to:
    * analyze accident, injury, and illness data
    * identify and evaluate risk
    * establish risk management priorities
    * formulate and implement sound risk control measures
    * monitor and fine-tune the risk management program
    * incorporate risk management into an incident management system
    * use and maintain proper personal protective equipment
    Further, the book addresses federal standards that safety administrators must observe, providing crucial compliance information on OSHA s regulations covering bloodborne pathogens, confined spaces, respiratory protection, and hazardous waste operations and emergency response in addition to the NFPA standards. The book, in fact, is so complete it even covers how to utilize cost/benefit analysis to ensure effective risk management decision making. Written by a longtime certified safety professional and an experienced fire officer, Emergency Incident Risk Management should be regularly consulted by every professional who administers or operates corporate, municipal, military, or private emergency response programs.

    Reverse Speech : The Voice of Truth

    Reverse Speech : The Voice of Truth Lowest new price: $60.00
    Lowest used price: $205.26
    Author: David John Oates
    Brand: Brand: Jack Johnston Seminars

    4 audio cassettes. Total Program: 3 hours.

    Reverse Speech discoverer David John Oates provides a detailed workshop on the discovery, theories, and practice of Reverse Speech Analysis. From his thousands of hours of documented examples he draws actual samples of these heretofore hidden, truthtelling voices embedded in all forward speech: from politicians to O.J. Simpson, to one year-old children (Reverse Speech begins a year before forward speech).

    Volume 1: Complementarity: Examples you can hear of how Reverse Speech always expands upon and tells the truth about whatever the speaker is discussing in their forward speech.

    Volume 2: Reversals and Backmasking in Music: Compares the artificial backmasking in rock music practiced by Beatles' John Lennon (the famous 'Paul is dead' gimmick) and other rock musicians with true Reverse Speech where the singers reveal their spiritual beliefs, drug addictions, etc.

    Volume 3: Reversals on politicians, celebrities, and more: George Bush Senior, O.J. Simpson, and many others reveal what their thinking yet not saying in their forward speech.

    Volume 4: Reversals in year-old Children... and Metaphors: Demonstrates how Reverse Speech begins well before intelligible forward speech. Metaphors reveal the rich and forthright language of our 'Inner Guides'.

    NOTE: In October of 2000, Reverse Speech Analysis Practitioner Jack Johnston M.A. (trained and certified by Mr. Oates) used Reverse Speech Analysis to profile specific behaviors of a plaintiff within a 24 hour time frame in a case of alleged rape, which findings were subsequently corroborated independently by DNA analysis results from a State Police laboratory.
