Book Description :

Near Houston, Texas, an oil refinery belonging to one of the world's largest energy companies is obliterated by a "backpack" nuclear device—the first of many planned global attacks against corporations and government organizations accused of plundering the world's natural resources. A horrific act of war has been perpetrated against the U.S. and her interests—and Major Jason Richter and his top-secret, high-tech Task Force TALON are dispatched to pursue, engage, and destroy this virulent new strain of terrorism. Yet Richter's plan of swift, brutal, and unconventional action is threatened by an enemy buried deep in the highest level of government—a mole whose blind desire for personal vengeance could doom Richter and his team . . . and America.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor delivers his most frightening and pulse-pounding thriller ever! After a CIA agent mysteriously dies overseas, his top asset surfaces with a startling and terrifying claim. There’s just one problem—no one knows if she can be trusted. But when six exchange students go missing, two airplane passengers trade places, and one political-asylum seeker is arrested, a deadly chain of events is set in motion. With the United States facing an imminent and devastating attack, America’s new president must turn to covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath to help carry out two of the most dangerous operations in the country’s history. Code-named "Gold Dust" and "Blackbird," they are shrouded in absolute secrecy as either of them, if discovered, will constitute an act of war.

Book Description :

In his first inaugural address, Abraham Lincoln declared that as president he would "have no lawful right" to interfere with the institution of slavery. Yet less than two years later, he issued a proclamation intended to free all slaves throughout the Confederate states. When critics challenged the constitutional soundness of the act, Lincoln pointed to the international laws and usages of war as the legal basis for his Proclamation, asserting that the Constitution invested the president "with the law of war in time of war." As the Civil War intensified, the Lincoln administration slowly and reluctantly accorded full belligerent rights to the Confederacy under the law of war. This included designating a prisoner of war status for captives, honoring flags of truce, and negotiating formal agreements for the exchange of prisoners -- practices that laid the intellectual foundations for emancipation. Once the United States allowed Confederates all the privileges of belligerents under international law, it followed that they should also suffer the disadvantages, including trial by military courts, seizure of property, and eventually the emancipation of slaves. Even after the Lincoln administration decided to apply the law of war, it was unclear whether state and federal courts would agree. After careful analysis, author Burrus M. Carnahan concludes that if the courts had decided that the proclamation was not justified, the result would have been the personal legal liability of thousands of Union officers to aggrieved slave owners. This argument offers further support to the notion that Lincoln's delay in issuing the Emancipation Proclamation was an exercise of political prudence, not a personal reluctance to free the slaves. In Act of Justice, Carnahan contends that Lincoln was no reluctant emancipator; he wrote a truly radical document that treated Confederate slaves as an oppressed people rather than merely as enemy property. In this respect, Lincoln's proclamation anticipated the psychological warfare tactics of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Carnahan's exploration of the president's war powers illuminates the origins of early debates about war powers and the Constitution and their link to international law.

WINNER OF THE SAMUEL ELIOT MORISON AWARD FOR NAVAL LITERATURE “I devoured Act of War the way I did Flyboys, Flags of Our Fathers and Lost in Shangri-la.”—Michael Connelly, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author In 1968, the small, dilapidated American spy ship USS Pueblo set out to pinpoint military radar stations along the coast of North Korea. Though packed with advanced electronic-surveillance equipment and classified intelligence documents, its crew, led by ex–submarine officer Pete Bucher, was made up mostly of untested young sailors. On a frigid January morning, the Pueblo was challenged by a North Korean gunboat. When Bucher tried to escape, his ship was quickly surrounded by more boats, shelled and machine-gunned, forced to surrender, and taken prisoner. Less than forty-eight hours before the Pueblo’s capture, North Korean commandos had nearly succeeded in assassinating South Korea’s president. The two explosive incidents pushed Cold War tensions toward a flashpoint. Based on extensive interviews and numerous government documents released through the Freedom of Information Act, Act of War tells the riveting saga of Bucher and his men as they struggled to survive merciless torture and horrendous living conditions set against the backdrop of an international powder keg.

Book Description :

During the Great War law was used in everyday life as a tool to discriminate, oppress, censor and deprive many Australians of property, liberty and basic human rights. A nation often amends its laws during war, not least to regulate life at home. Yet few historians have considered the impact of the law on Australians during the First World War. In this original book, Catherine Bond breathes life into the laws that were central to the way people were managed in Australia 1914–18. Engaging and revelatory, Law in War holds those who wrote the laws to account, exposing the sheer breadth and impact of this wartime legal regime, the injustices of which linger to this day. More than anything, it illuminates how ordinary people were caught up in – and sometimes destroyed by – these laws created in the name of victory. ‘Law in War gives us insights into the law and Australia’s Great War that Charles Bean declined to publish ninety-odd years ago. Pioneering, full of wonderful life and energy, the result has been worth waiting for.’ — Professor Peter Stanley, UNSW Canberra

Book Description :

The 2013 Edition of this handbook is the only practical guide published on the Defense Base Act and War Hazards Compensation Act. The two primary federal statutes which address these matters are the Defense Base Act ("DBA") [42 U.S.C.S. ℗ʹ 1651 et seq.] and the War Hazards Compensation Act ("WHCA") [42 U.S.C.S. ℗ʹ 1701 et seq.]. The general purpose of the DBA is to provide uniform and generous compensation benefits to certain civilian employees "domestic and foreign" of private companies doing work overseas in furtherance of American foreign policy. The general purpose of the WHCA is to shift to the United States government the costs of compensating certain civilian employees "domestic and foreign" of private companies who are working overseas in furtherance of American foreign policy and are injured or killed by a war risk hazard.Much has happened in the DBA world since our first and second editions went to press in 2008 and 2010. While there has been a significant wind-down of civilian contractors in Iraq, significant numbers continue to be employed to assist the efforts of the United States in its military activity in Afghanistan as well as in "public work" around the globe. Moreover, the "tail" from Iraq will be with us for many years to come. As you will see in this 2013 edition, we emphasize new case law in the areas of average weekly wage, exclusivity benefits under the DBA, adjudication and appeals and War Hazards Compensation Act. We have expanded the chapter on the War Hazards Compensation Act to include interesting "Bulletins" from the U.S. Department of Labor agencies involved with the administration of this law. We have also added a new chapter, Chapter 14, on claimant attorney fees--a topic that has been the subject of much controversy in recent years at the administrative, trial and appellate levels in both traditional Longshore and Defense Base Act cases.This handbook combines expert analysis of the substantive law with practice tips and other helpful tools. The handbook is written for attorneys, insurance companies, claims adjusters, judges, defense contractors, injured workers, and others. It provides the reader with a basic introduction to the Defense Base Act, its history and purpose, current events, and a list of common acronyms and terminology. The handbook discusses coverage issues, underwriting, waivers, exclusivity rules, types of benefits, the claims process, discovery issues, average weekly wage calculations, zone of special danger doctrine, commutations, settlements, and death benefits. There's also a chapter on the War Hazards Compensation Act and how benefits are obtained under that Act. At the end of the handbook, a full reprint of Defense Base Act and War Hazards Compensation Act statutes and the Longshore Harbor and Workers' Compensation Act statutes are provided.
