This is an account of a country at war and of a people consigned to the role of pawn in world politics. Haas provides detailed scholarly reassessment of the causes of the Cambodian tragedy--how Cambodia became an arena for superpower conflict. The volume vindicates Vietnam's role in the Cambodian conflict and reveals the treachery of U.S. foreign policy toward Cambodia. Haas' analysis entails a study in comparative foreign policies, an exercise that has theoretical merit for political scientists in search of paradigms of political behavior. Much of the information in the book is based on Haas' recent interviews with 100 key international figures and on primary documents.

Lapple+ puzzle is more challenging version of Lapple puzzle. If you are unfamiliar with lapple/lapple+ puzzles, you may be asking, "What is a lapple/lapple+ puzzle?" A lapple/lapple+ puzzle is an overLAPPing word puzzle. Each puzzle contains a word overlap from one to four letters. The objective is the find consecutive overlapping words by following the string from beginning to end. For example, in the string KIDNAPKINGDOMESTICATERRORIST, one finds the words KID, KIDNAP, NAPKIN, KING, KINGDOM, DOMESTICATE, CATER, and TERRORIST.The overall benefits of working lapple puzzles include better memory, faster problem-solving skills, and increased alertness. Lapple puzzles help reinforce logic, critical thinking, and visualization. The mental exercise required to solve the puzzles provided in this book improves working memory.Whether lapple puzzles are new for you, or you are already a lapple puzzle fan, this book will challenge you with lapple+ puzzles containing 161 letters (lapple puzzles contain 127 letters). Whatever the experience level or age of the solver - child, adult, or senior - lapple puzzles provide the puzzle solver with an activity that is not only fun, but also mentally challenging. Lapple+ puzzles have the solution words listed below the puzzle with letters reversed (Lapple puzzles have solutions listed in a different section of the book.)Benefits of Lapple Puzzle SolvingIn recent years, scientists have begun to pay more attention to the brain. The human brain is considered extremely complicated in its design and working. However, we know relatively little about how it works. We do know from studies that health benefits are derived from exercising the brain. Our minds, like our bodies, need stimulation and exercise. Working word, number, and logic puzzles provides that exercise for our brains.Improved Focus and AttentionPuzzles can help your mind form new patterns and complex neural networks naturally. Scientists have found that your brain actually reorganizes itself in response to new challenges, and a lapple puzzle provides such a challenge.Lapple puzzles also improve focus and attention while solutions are sought. Finding solutions requires a certain amount of solitude without distraction. Concentrated attention is an excellent skill to develop that will aid you in many areas of life.Increased Mental StimulationLapple puzzles provide you with an activity that is not only fun, but also mentally challenging. Thus, working lapple puzzles can increase your mental stimulation.Intelligence Quotient - IQ - is a scientific assessment of your intelligence. Your IQ is derived from measuring problem solving abilities, memory, general knowledge, and spatial imagery. The average God-given IQ of an adult is 150. It cannot be increased by medical science, because of the microbiology of the brain. Your average effective (day-to-day) IQ is only 100-110, mostly due to neglect - lack of brain exercises.Contrary to popular belief, your brain is capable of growth (effective IQ) and change throughout your life. The daily effective IQ can be increased by various mental activities, among them lapple puzzle solving.Enhanced Thinking SkillsAdults do not realize while working puzzles that they are using thinking skills. Our brains learn new skills and acquire knowledge throughout our lives. Mastering puzzle-solving skills improves thinking.Adults have a natural ability to play and be creative with words. Lapple puzzles can enhance and boost creative intelligence. This is a great opportunity improve the brain's overall health and longevity.Improved MemoryMuch has been made of the health benefits of doing brain puzzles. Puzzles require brain exertion (exercise). Therefore, puzzles improve memory and encourage better brain function. This can lead to improved concentration and memory.

Academics, NGOs, the United Nations, and individual nations are focused on the prevention and intervention of genocide. Traditionally, missions to prevent or intervene in genocide have been sporadic and under-resourced. The contributors to this volume consider some of the major stumbling blocks to the avoidance of genocide. Bartrop and Totten argue that realpolitik is the major impediment to the elimination of genocide. Campbell examines the lack of political will to confront genocide, and Theriault describes how denial becomes an obstacle to intervention against genocide. Loyle and Davenport discuss how intervention is impeded by a lack of reliable data on genocide violence, and Macgregor presents an overview of the influence of the media. Totten examines how the UN Convention on Genocide actually impedes anti-genocide efforts; and how the institutional configuration of the UN is itself often a stumbling block. Addressing an issue that is often overlooked, Travis examines the impact of global arms trade on genocide. Finally, Hiebert examines how international criminal prosecution of atrocities can impede preventive efforts, and Hirsch provides an analysis of the strengths, weaknesses, and effectiveness of major international and national prescriptions developed over the last decade. The result is a distinguished addition to Transaction's prestigious Genocide Studies series.

This book presents a unique effort to create a new understanding of the Christian sign of the cross. At its core, it traces the conscious and unconscious influence of this visual symbol through time. What began as the crucifixion of a Jewish troublemaker in Roman-occupied Judea in the first century eventually gave rise to a broad spectrum of readings of the instrument used to accomplish such a punishment, a cross. The author argues that Jesus was a provocative, grandiose masochist whose suffering and death initially signified redemption for believers. This idea gradually morphed into a Christian sense of freedom to persecute and wage war against non-believers, however, as can be seen in the Crusades ("wars of the cross"). Many believers even construed the murder of their savior as a crime perpetrated by "the Jews," and this paranoid notion culminated in the mass murder of European Jews under the sign of the Nazi hooked cross (Hakenkreuz). Rancour-Laferriere’s book is expertly written and argued; it will be readable to a large audience because it touches on many areas of controversy, interest, and scholarship. The work is critical, but not unfair; it employs psychoanalysis, art history (the study of the symbol of the cross in works of art), religion and religious texts, and world history generally. The interweaving of these various themes is what gives this work its ability to draw in readers—and will ultimately be what keeps the reader interested through the conclusion.

Genocide by Denial: How Profiteering from HIV/AIDS Killed Millions traces the carnage of HIV/AIDS from its Ugandan epicentre in the villages of Kasensero, along the shores of Lake Victoria, through sub-Saharan Africa and onto the rest of the world. The author's involvement in the struggle against the virus started in 1989, soon after his return from a long exile in Europe and the Middle East. On arrival he found the disease devastating his country, compelling him to fight the modern-age plague. He became one of the leaders in a protracted fight against the scourge and an advocate for universal access to life-saving antiretroviral therapy. In this book the author exposes the incredible self-indulgence of the pharmaceutical companies and the cold-heartedness of the rich world that turned a blind eye until it was far too late, and then responded too slowly with too little. The book details his challenge to the powerful pharmaceutical companies that insisted on profitable business as usual, ignoring the lives of millions, and his call for more ethical and humanitarian ways of trade, involving crucial life-saving drugs, and a new world order to ensure entitlement of the poor to rapid humanitarian relief.
