Focusing on Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, specifically the Northern Areas and Azad Jammu, this exploration discusses three major impacts on the area’s future development: the 2005 earthquake, the post-9/11 surge in jihad activities, and sectarian violence in Gilgit and Baltistan. The arguments investigate what these three recent occurrences mean to the area’s national security, international presence and reputation, and human rights. The essays feature sample plans, guidelines, and protocols for optimal deployment and expansion of the community-based resources necessary for constructive progression.

This comprehensive and authoritative book is about the last colonies, those remaining territories formally dependent on metropolitan powers. It discusses the surprisingly large number of these territories, mainly small isolated islands with limited resources. Yet these places are not as obscure as might be expected. They may be major tourist destinations, military bases, satellite tracking stations, tax havens or desolate, underpopulated spots that can become international flashpoints, such as the Falklands. The authors find that at a time of escalating nationalism and globalization, these remnants of empire provide insights into the meanings of political, economic, legal and cultural independence, as well as sovereignty and nationhood. This book provides a broad-based and provocative discussion of colonialism and interdependence in the modern world, from a unique perspective.

New York Times best-selling author and Emmy Award–winning news anchor Chris Hayes argues that there are really two Americas: a Colony and a Nation. America likes to tell itself that it inhabits a postracial world, yet nearly every empirical measure—wealth, unemployment, incarceration, school segregation—reveals that racial inequality has barely improved since 1968, when Richard Nixon became our first “law and order” president. With the clarity and originality that distinguished his prescient bestseller, Twilight of the Elites, Chris Hayes upends our national conversation on policing and democracy in a book of wide-ranging historical, social, and political analysis. Hayes contends our country has fractured in two: the Colony and the Nation. In the Nation, we venerate the law. In the Colony, we obsess over order, fear trumps civil rights, and aggressive policing resembles occupation. A Colony in a Nation explains how a country founded on justice now looks like something uncomfortably close to a police state. How and why did Americans build a system where conditions in Ferguson and West Baltimore mirror those that sparked the American Revolution? A Colony in a Nation examines the surge in crime that began in the 1960s and peaked in the 1990s, and the unprecedented decline that followed. Drawing on close-hand reporting at flashpoints of racial conflict, as well as deeply personal experiences with policing, Hayes explores cultural touchstones, from the influential “broken windows” theory to the “squeegee men” of late-1980s Manhattan, to show how fear causes us to make dangerous and unfortunate choices, both in our society and at the personal level. With great empathy, he seeks to understand the challenges of policing communities haunted by the omnipresent threat of guns. Most important, he shows that a more democratic and sympathetic justice system already exists—in a place we least suspect. A Colony in a Nation is an essential book—searing and insightful—that will reframe our thinking about law and order in the years to come.

The early colonists on Mars are unable to intervene to stop the terrible sequence of events that is hurtling Mankind towards oblivion on Earth. They have their own problems to solve, from a savagely inhospitable atmosphere and raging storms to religious-fundamentalist infighting on Earth and cultural prejudice. But behind all civilisations are the real people who actually make things happen, who take risks and focus on the future, no matter how crazy that may seem. It is people like Jules, Eva and Ted who are the visionaries, with a passion for the survival of their own kind. The Last Colony brings together what we in the 21st century know of the red planet and the mess we are making of our own planet, to weave a complex and frighteningly plausible tale of catastrophe and fierce hope for the future - a future that does not include planet Earth.
