    Casemate 2018; US$ 18.95

    During the course of America’s existence, history has enshrined an exceptional few military leaders in the public’s collective consciousness while sometimes ignoring others often equally as deserving, relegating them to footnotes at best.

  • Revival: The Alternative to War (1936)by Charles Roden Buxton

    Taylor and Francis 2018; US$ 42.95

    This book faces the problem of the "dissatisfied" Powers. It recognizes the dangers of war, but it suggests a clear alternative.

Until this is changed, no system of treaties and... more...
