A classic mystery from Dick Francis, the champion of English storytellers. Edward Lincoln has scaled the Himalayas, survived deadly car chases and defeated scores of assassins. As a movie action man he's even suffered stoically at the hands of sadistic directors. After finishing his latest film, he's asked to visit South Africa to discover why a dying friend's horses are suddenly failing on the race track. Unfortunately, Lincoln's attempt to help a friend soon puts him in harm's way. From a nearly fatal interview to a dangerous accident in a gold mine, it seems only luck is keeping him alive. And in life, unlike the big-screen, there's no coming back from dead . . . Praise for Dick Francis: 'As a jockey, Dick Francis was unbeatable when he got into his stride. The same is true of his crime writing' Daily Mirror 'Dick Francis's fiction has a secret ingredient - his inimitable knack of grabbing the reader's attention on page one and holding it tight until the very end' Sunday Telegraph 'The narrative is brisk and gripping and the background researched with care . . . the entire story is a pleasure to relish' Scotsman 'Francis writing at his best' Evening Standard 'A regular winner . . . as smooth, swift and lean as ever' Sunday Express Dick Francis was one of the most successful post-war National Hunt jockeys. The winner of over 350 races, he was champion jockey in 1953/1954 and rode for HM Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, most famously on Devon Loch in the 1956 Grand National. On his retirement from the saddle, he published his autobiography, The Sport of Queens, before going on to write forty-three bestselling novels, a volume of short stories (Field of 13), and the biography of Lester Piggott. During his lifetime Dick Francis received many awards, amongst them the prestigious Crime Writers' Association's Cartier Diamond Dagger for his outstanding contribution to the genre, and three 'best novel' Edgar Allan Poe awards from The Mystery Writers of America. In 1996 he was named by them as Grand Master for a lifetime's achievement. In 1998 he was elected a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, and was awarded a CBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List of 2000. Dick Francis died in February 2010, at the age of eighty-nine, but he remains one of the greatest thriller writers of all time.

Ben George served in the Pacific with John Kennedy and always aspired to be a hero. He returned home to become one in his own community. But, as Mickey Mantle once said, "You never have to wait long, or look far, to be reminded of how thin the line is between being a hero or a goat".Ben has many secrets and is afraid to allow the world around him see how frail, how human he really is. Can a man truly be a hero, if his loved ones don't believe he is?

When is it legitimate to use force? Smokescreen analyzes the workings and legitimacy of the United Nations Security Council, and how the United States and NATO governments systemically create the false perception of legitimacy for the use of force. the book offers a way forward toward international peace and security, in the interests of Western countries and humanity as a whole. Social scientists widely use Max Weber's definition of legitimacy, legitimitatsglaube, or the belief in legitimacy. Unlike moral philosophers, social scientists favor empirical data; therefore, for these social scientists, measuring legitimacy becomes possible by measuring what people believe to be legitimate. David Beetham maintains that Weber's definition is a catastrophe, and, in its place, offers a formula for legitimacy based on the objective criteria of legality, shared beliefs between dominant and subordinate, and consent from at least the most significant subordinate actors. This book argues that the United Nations Security Council, backed by the UN Charter, holds real legitimacy based on Beetham's formula. However, powerful Western states intent on military intervention, but unable to secure UN Security Council authorization, employ alternative norm justifications of self-defense beyond the scope of Article 51 and humanitarian intervention. They use a Weberian conception of legitimacy to create a perception of legitimacy where none exists. In this framework the powerful have the ability to manipulate public opinion to create legitimacy for a particular action. the author argues that this is not legitimacy but merely a perception of legitimacy to justify aggression. Objective standards to legitimacy exist, and those standards are enshrined in the United Nations Charter. This book is suitable for courses on international relations, political theory, and political science. Primary markets include bookstores, university book lists and secondary markets include international relations conferences and speaking engagements. the main subject area is international affairs. the readership level is intermediate and above. the book includes references to international law suitable for a general audience but also for the professional practitioner.

It has been used in sacred ceremonies, in medicine, and as a life-saving cash crop in the New World. But today, tobacco is a problem—a big problem. It is one of the first substances to which young people become addicted, and it contains thousands of chemicals that are dangerous to smokers and to those who are simply in the proximity of the smoke. In Tobacco: Through the Smoke Screen, you’ll learn the story of tobacco, its history, its role in culture, and its dangers. You will also learn about the power of tobacco over smokers and chewers, and how cigarette makers help increase its hold—and make it more difficult to live without it. Last of all, you’ll find suggestions on how to kick the tobacco habit and reverse its ill effects.
