Ad Description

25 Years of Terror: IRA's War Against the British by Martin Dillon...

A survey of the IRA's bombing campaign in Britain before and after World War II.

The text looks at the IRA's flirtation with Nazism and Eire's wartime neutrality and how that conditioned subsequent British policy towards Ireland, and examines the campaigns of the 1970's and 1980's.

It also discusses the political and military mistakes which made British cities the most venerable in Europe to terrorist attack and why Government agencies failed to eradicate the threat.

This book includes material on what the IRA called its "England Department", on how that IRA cell functioned and its objectives, and what was behind the IRA's reluctance to denounce the Downing Street Declaration.

Twenty-eight-year-old Quan has been fighting for the Communist cause in North Vietnam for a decade. Filled with idealism and hope when he first left his village, he now spends his days and nights dodging stray bullets and bombs, foraging scraps of food to feed himself and his men. Quan seeks comfort in childhood memories as he tries to sort out his conflicting feelings of patriotism and disillusionment. Then, given the chance to return to his home, Quan undertakes a physical and mental journey that brings him face to face with figures from his past - his angry father, his childhood sweetheart, his boyhood friends now maimed or dead and ultimately to the shattering reality that his innocence has been irretrievably lost in the wake of the war. In a voice both lyrical and stark, Duong Thu Huong, one of Vietnam’s most beloved writers, powerfully conveys the conflict that spiritually destroyed her generation.

Dear Uncle Go: Male Homosexuality in Thailand by Peter A Jackson.. A landmark study of male homoeroticism in Southeast Asia. "Uncle Go Pak-nam" has been Thailand's advice columnist for gay men in a major national magazine since 1974. Letters to him come from the confused, lovelorn, naive, worldly and lonely. Their sexually explicit stores are often moving, sometimes shocking, sometimes delightful, but always fascinating and deeply human. Uncle Go's advice to them is wild, witty, and wise. These engaging letters, plus Uncle Go's responses, provide the basis for Dr. Jackson's ingenious and insightful analyses and commentaries into male-to-male relationships in what may be one of the world's few non-homophobic societies. This landmark book is a fully revised and expanded version of Male Homosexuality in Thailand: An Interpretation of Contemporary Thai Sources (New York: 1989) Although this book is an academic study, lay people will find it readable and compelling.
