Book Announcement: A World Beyond Global Disorder: The Courage to Hope

A World Beyond Global Disorder: The Courage to Hope now available from Cambridge Scholars Publishing

9781443898829
Hardback, pp275, £52.99 / $90.95

Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of A World Beyond Global Disorder: The Courage to Hope, edited by Fred Dallmayr and Edward Demenchonok.

A world which, like ours, has been ravaged by some sixty wars in recent decades, can rightly be described as the scene of global disorder. Even today, the same world is traumatized by hot and cold wars, proxy wars, and repeated outbursts of blood-filled mayhem, not to mention the threat of a nuclear holocaust unleashed by big power rivalries. These are not mere statistics, but wounds in the body of humanity, calling for healing and reconciliation. In biblical terms, human beings are not meant to be the owners or the destroyers of the world, but rather its custodians or caretakers. Continue reading

Paperback, pp230, £34.99 / $59.95

Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the paperback release of Kissinger and the Invasion of Cyprus: Diplomacy in the Eastern Mediterranean by William Mallinson.

Can Henry Kissinger be described as a serious statesman who altered the course of relations between states? Or was he a shallow impersonator of those whom he admired, and a geopolitical engineer who treated people as collateral fodder, reducing morality to the status of a strategic and tactical tool? Using the story of Kissinger’s behaviour over Cyprus, backed up by recently revealed government documents, many critical, William Mallinson, former diplomat and leading authority on Cyprus’ history, provides an incisive analysis and evaluation of Kissinger’s approach, revealing a man who appears to have considered political strategy more important than law and ethics.

International Law and the Use of Force against Terrorism now available from Cambridge Scholars Publishing

Hardback, pp370, £74.99 / $127.95

Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of International Law and the Use of Force against Terrorism by Dr. Shadi Adnan Alshdaifat.

As shown in the case of Attila the Hun, and his thirst for power, property, and personal prestige, nation states throughout the world, particularly in Asia and Europe, have, since ancient times, been vulnerable to invasion by other nation states and bands of looters from outside their borders. Terrorism’s progress into the modern day has caused extreme concern among members of the international community, who now accept that it is like a cancer that refuses to localize itself within any single organ of the body, but seeks to spread its lethality throughout, even if that means destroying itself along with the host. The fight against terrorism is long and complex, but the end is known in advance. Terrorists are defending a lost cause, and their defeat is inevitable, and democracy, freedom, and diplomacy will triumph. Continue reading
