EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Almost a century after the Australian Light Horse fought a series of epic and bloody battles against the Turkish Army across the deserts of the Middle East, Paul Daley and Mike Bowers retrace the steps of the men and boys who fought there. From enemy trenches where they charged the Turks on horseback, to narrow mountain passes where, exhausted, they slept in their saddles in retreat, Paul and Mike visit the hostile and lonely places where soldiers lost and buried their mates. Through battlefields still littered with shrapnel, bullet casings and even the odd human bone, they reflect on how the turbulent Middle East politics of the present collides with the past. Illustrated with archival and contemporary photographs, their story is part travelogue, part reportage and part history. Evocative, sometimes funny, sad and disturbing, Armageddon is two men on a fading Anzac trail.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

On February 28, 1993, the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (BATF) launched the largest assault in its history against a small religious community in central Texas. One hundred agents armed with automatic and semi automatic weapons invaded the compound, purportedly to execute a single search and arrest warrant. The raid went badly; four agents were killed, and by the end of the day the settlement was surrounded by armored tanks and combat helicopters. After a fifty-one day standoff, the United States Justice Department approved a plan to use CS gas against those barricaded inside. Whether by accident or plan, tanks carrying the CS gas caused the compound to explode in fire, killing all seventy-four men, women, and children inside. Could the tragedy have been prevented? Was it necesary for the BATF agents to do what they did? What could have been done differently? Armageddon in Waco offers the most detailed, wide-ranging analysis of events surrounding Waco. Leading scholars in sociology, history, law, and religion explore all facets of the confrontation in an attempt to understand one of the most confusing government actions in American history. The book begins with the history of the Branch Davidians and the story of its leader, David Koresh. Chapters show how the Davidians came to trouble authorities, why the group was labeled a "cult," and how authorities used unsubstantiated allegations of child abuse to strengthen their case against the sect. The media's role is examined next in essays that considering the effect on coverage of lack of time and resources, the orchestration of public relations by government officials, the restricted access to the site or to countervailing evidence, and the ideologies of the journalists themselves. Several contributors then explore the relation of violence to religion, comparing Waco to Jonestown. Finally, the role played by "experts" and "consultants" in defining such conflicts is explored by two contributors who had active roles as scholarly experts during and after the siege The legal and consitutional implications of the government's actions are also analyzed in balanced, clearly written detail.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The important and long-standing economic, social, and kinship ties between the United States and Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island were profoundly shaken by the Civil War. In this engaging and accessible account, Greg Marquis explores the shadow cast on the Maritimes and its people by America's bloodiest conflict. In Armageddon's Shadow chronicles events as they unfolded and highlights the very real threat of conflict between Britain and the United States. Major crises such as the highjacking of the Chesapeake by Confederate partisans and the destructive cruise of the CSS Tallahassee – the only Confederate warship to reach a mainland British North American port – in addition to Halifax's growing importance as a communications link for the South and the Maritimes' involvement in blockade running are recounted in detail. In Armageddon's Shadow also explores the impact of the Civil War at a more personal level. Marquis highlights Maritimers' growing support for the beleaguered Confederacy, despite the colonies' official neutrality, and the grave implications this had for local race relations. He describes the impact of refugees, crimping, and recruiting on Maritimers' attitudes and recounts the experiences of some of the thousands of men born in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island who served in the Civil War. Drawing extensively on newspaper reports, personal papers, and local histories, Marquis captures the drama of events as they unfolded, effectively putting the reader into the thick of the action and into the minds of the individuals involved. In Armageddon's Shadow is a must read for anyone with an interest in the American Civil War or the history of the Maritime provinces.
