    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2016; US$ 149.95

  • Bali to Baghdad and Beyondby Rodney Cocks

    Penguin Books Ltd 2013; US$ 14.38

    As I surveyed the smoking wreck . . . one thing was apparent: I had become desensitised to death, destruction and terror. I wasn't shocked, disgusted, surprised or numb. For me, sadly, it was just another day. Bali to Baghdad and Beyond is a remarkable first-hand account of life at the UN front lines and in recent post-conflict hotspots. Rodney... more...

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 110.00

    In a multipolar world with growing demand for energy, not least by Emerging Powers such as Brazil, India, China or South Africa (BICS), questions of EU external energy governance would at first hand appear to be a high-priority.

  • China?s Evolving Approach to Peacekeepingby Marc Lanteigne; Miwa Hirono

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    China has become an enthusiastic supporter of and contributor to UN peacekeeping.
