Description : Under Attack gives an overview of the political crisis of Venezuela under the government of President Hugo Chavez. It also puts into context why the opposition in Venezuela to a large degree is infuriated by any move the Bolivarian Revolution makes and why the Bush White House is so eager to solve the "problem" by any means. A detailed analysis of the economic facts explains how the revenues from oil benefit the rich class and foreign shareholders. Closer scrutiny reveals that conflicts between 'Opposicion' and 'Chavistas' in reality may rather be seen as the constant struggle between Rich and Poor. The author offers a view free from any ideology and down to the facts by putting his finger into the wounds of both sides. Under Attack features an exclusive interview with President Chavez. The film Factor CH is available on DVD for purchase.

Description : Under Attack makes a new contribution to the field of international relations in general and the study of international law and armed conflict in particular, in two core ways. First, it links information from varying disciplines, most notably international relations and international law, to form a comprehensive picture of state practice and the challenges it poses to the legal rules for the use of force. Secondly, it organises the information in such a way to identify two core groups of contemporary justifications used by states: humanitarian reasons and self-defence, both with their sub-categories. At the core of this book is the question of how state practice since 1990 has challenged the long-established legal regime on the international use of force. Are we merely witnessing a temporary and insignificant challenge to international law or are the rules genuinely under attack?

Description : New in hardback, the first ever attack on Australia by a foreign power occurred at Darwin on 19 February 1942. To this day, Australia Under Attack remains the most reliable and accurate account of the Darwin bombings....Darwin was bombed in broad daylight by members of the Japanese Carrier Task Force which had been engaged at Pearl Harbour two months earlier. Not a single operational RAAF fighter aircraft was available to meet this attack, imminent and inevitable though it was. At the time of the raid, Douglas Lockwood was a correspondent for the Melbourne Herald in Darwin. In the years that followed, he travelled the world interviewing survivors of and participants in the attack to produce the first complete reconstruction of that tragic day. NEW IN HARDBACK
Description : Evidence and logic are lacking in many areas of public debate today on hot-button issues ranging from dietary fat to vaccination. In Science Under Attack, Dr. Alexander shows how science is being abused, sidelined or ignored, making it difficult or impossible for the public to form a reasoned opinion about important issues. Readers will learn why science is becoming more corrupt, and also how it is being abused for political and economic gain, support of activism, or the propping up of religious beliefs. To illustrate how science is being ignored and abused, the author examines six different issues and the way they are currently discussed: evolution, dietary fat, climate change, vaccination, GMO crops and continental drift. In his research, he has gone back to the original source wherever possible rather than quoting second-hand sources, adding a degree of accuracy and nuance often missing. The controversial assertion that science does not support the conventional wisdom on climate change should be of particular interest. Alexander shows that the scientific evidence for a substantial human contribution to climate change is actually flimsy, and he demonstrates the fallacy of comparing the strong link between smoking and lung cancer to the much weaker connection between human activity and global warming.
