In this compelling book, distinguished activist lawyer Francis A. Boyle sounds an impassioned clarion call to citizen action against Bush administration policies both domestic and international. Boyle, who has spent his career defending civil resisters, offers the only guide available on how to use international law, constitutional law, and the laws of war to defend peaceful non-violent protesters against governmental policies that are illegal and criminal. He focuses especially on the aftermath of 9/11 and the implications of the war on Afghanistan, the war on terrorism, the war on Iraq, the doctrine of preventive warfare, and the domestic abridgement of civil rights. Including a number of compelling excerpts from his own trial appearances as an expert witness and as counsel, the author offers a how-to manual for protesters who find themselves in court.

Im Jahr 2011 gewann Novak Djokovic 10 Titel, 3 Grand Slams und 43 aufeinanderfolgende Matches und spielte damit die erfolgreichste Saison, die jemals im Tennis absolviert wurde. Aber wie konnte ein Sportler, der zuvor von Atemproblemen und Verletzungen geplagt wurde, plötzlich die Nummer 1 der Weltrangliste werden? Die Antwort ist verblüffend: Er stellte seine Ernährung um. In Siegernahrungbeschreibt Djokovic, wie er den Bombenangriff auf seine Heimatstadt Belgrad überlebte und von einem der Kriegs-Kinder zum Tennisstar wurde. Im Fokus dieses Ratgebers steht jedoch die Diät, die ihn aus der Mittelklasse an die absolute Spitze katapultierte: Djokovic liebte Brot und Pasta, vor allem aber die Pizza aus dem Restaurant seiner Familie unwissend, dass sein Körper Bestandteile des Weizens nicht verarbeiten kann. Erst als er anfing, auf glutenhaltige Nahrung zu verzichten, konnte er sich gleich zwei Kindheitsträume erfüllen: den Wimbledon-Sieg und die Position 1 in der Tennis-Weltrangliste. Dieses Buch verhilft dem Leser mit Wochen-Menüs, Ernährungstips und einfachen Rezepten durch glutenfreie Ernährung zu einem besseren Lebensgefühl.

Tracing the course of conflicts throughout Asia in the past century, this groundbreaking volume is the first to explore systematically the nexus of war and state terrorism. Challenging states' definitions of terrorism, which routinely exclude their own behavior, the book focuses especially on the nature of Japanese and American wars and crimes of war. This rare comparative perspective examines the ways in which state terror leads to civilian casualties, war crimes, and crimes against humanity. In counterbalance, they discuss anti-war movements and international efforts to protect human rights. This interdisciplinary volume will resonate with readers searching for a deeper understanding of an era dominated by war and terror.

Tami Amanda Jacoby investigates the constraints and opportunities for women's civic engagements in zones of conflict through a case study of three women's political movements in Israel: Women in Green, The Jerusalem Link, and the lobby for women's right to fight in the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF). Filling a void in feminist studies of women and war, Women in Zones of Conflict challenges the traditional view, which suggests a natural connection between women and pacifism, based on the feminine qualities of caring, cooperation, and empathy. Feminist studies of nationalism also envision women as either victimized by patriarchy within nationalist movements or as adopting masculine qualities to conform to the culture of their male compatriots. Jacoby takes an alternative approach, considering how women are situated across the political spectrum. She argues that when categories other than gender - such as class, ethnicity, religion, and political perspective - are considered, there is no single perspective on what it means to be a woman in conflict.

Inside secure command centers, military officials make life and death decisions-- but the Pentagon also offers food courts, banks, drugstores, florists, and chocolate shops. It is rather symbolic of the way that the U.S. military has become our one-stop-shopping solution to global problems. Brooks traces this seismic shift in how America wages war, and provides a rallying cry for action as we undermine the values and rules that keep our world from sliding toward chaos.
