2 ALONSO, ANDONI; OIARZABAL, PEDRO J. Diasporas In The New Media Age: Identity, Politics, And Community.
University of Nevada Press, Reno: 2010. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
The explosion of digital information and communication technologies has influenced almost every aspect of contemporary life. Diasporas in the New Media Age examines the social use of these technologies by emigrants and diasporas around the world. The eighteen original essays in the book explore the personal, familial, and social impact of modern communication technology on populations of European, Asian, African, Caribbean, Middle Eastern, and Latin American emigrants. It also looks at the role and transformation of such concepts as identity, nation, culture, and community in the era of information technology and economic globalization. The contributors take a range of approaches—empirical, theoretical, and rhetorical—and combine case studies with thoughtful analysis. The contributors offer important insights into the ways that dispersed populations are using digital media to maintain ties with their families and homeland, and to create new communities that preserve their culture and reinforce their sense of identity. In looking at the impact of new media on emigrant populations, the book makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the impact of technology on society in general. Andoni Alonso received his Ph.D. in philosophy at the University of the Basque Country. He has been a visiting scholar at Penn State and at the Center for Basque Studies at the University of Nevada, Reno. He is associate professor of philosophy at the University of Extremadura, Spain. He is the author of many articles and books, including Basque Cyberculture: From Digital Euskadi to Cyber Euskalherria. Pedro J. Oiarzabal is a research scholar at the University of Deusto (Bilbao). He is the author of numerous articles as well as books on migration and identity, including Gardeners of Identity: Basques in the San Francisco Bay Area. "This is really an exciting book. The more I read it, the more enthusiastic I became. This is a genuinely original and challenging work of interdisciplinary scholarship and constitutes an important contribution to a number of fields." — Carl Mitcham, author of Thinking Through Technology: The Path Between Engineering and Philosophy

9 GARRARD-BURNETT, VIRGINIA; LAWRENCE, MARK ATWOOD & MORENO, JULIO E. (EDITORS). Beyond The Eagle's Shadow: New Histories Of Latin America's Cold War.
University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque: 2013. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
The dominant tradition in writing about U.S.-Latin American relations during the Cold War views the United States as all-powerful. That perspective, represented in the metaphor "talons of the eagle," continues to influence much scholarly work down to the present day. The goal of this collection of essays is not to write the United States out of the picture but to explore the ways Latin American governments, groups, companies, organizations and individuals promoted their own interests and perspectives. The book also challenges the tendency among scholars to see the Cold War as a simple clash of "left" and "right." In various ways, several essays disassemble those categories and explore the complexities of the Cold War as it was experienced beneath the level of great-power relations. Virginia Garrard-Burnett is professor of history at the University of Texas at Austin. Her most recent book is Terror in the Land of the Holy Spirit: Guatemala under General Efrain Rios Montt, 1982-1983. Mark Atwood Lawrence is associate professor of history and distinguished scholar at the Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security and Law at the University of Texas at Austin. His most recent book is The Vietnam War: A Concise International History. Julio Moreno, associate professor of history at the University of San Francisco, is the author of Yankee Don't Go Home!: Mexican Nationalism, American Business Culture, and the Shaping of Modern Mexico, 1920-1950.

11 HERZOG, TAMAR. Frontiers Of Possession: Spain And Portugal In Europe And The Americas.
Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts and London England: 2015. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Frontiers of Possession asks how territorial borders were established in Europe and the Americas during the early modern period and challenges the standard view that national boundaries are largely determined by military conflicts and treaties. Focusing on Spanish and Portuguese claims in the New and Old Worlds, Tamar Herzog reconstructs the different ways land rights were negotiated and enforced, sometimes violently, among people who remembered old possessions or envisioned new ones: farmers and nobles, clergymen and missionaries, settlers and indigenous peoples. Questioning the habitual narrative that sees the Americas as a logical extension of the Old World, Herzog portrays Spain and Portugal on both sides of the Atlantic as one unified imperial space. She begins in the Americas, where Iberian conquerors had to decide who could settle the land, who could harvest fruit and cut timber, and who had river rights for travel and trade. The presence of indigenous peoples as enemies to vanquish or allies to befriend, along with the vastness of the land, complicated the picture, as did the promise of unlimited wealth. In Europe, meanwhile, the formation and re-formation of boundaries could last centuries, as ancient entitlements clashed with evolving economic conditions and changing political views and juridical doctrines regarding how land could be acquired and maintained. Herzog demonstrates that the same fundamental questions had to be addressed in Europe and in the Americas. Territorial control was always subject to negotiation, as neighbors and outsiders, in their quotidian interactions, carved out and defended new frontiers of possession. Tamar Herzog is Monroe Gutman Professor of Latin American Affairs and Radcliffe Alumnae Professor at Harvard University. "Herzog succeeds in her aim of moving beyond the usually separate histories of Spain and Portugal—and of Europe and the Americas—to complicate the accepted understanding of national and imperial boundaries as immutable facts rather than as ongoing sites of contestation."—William O'Connor, The Daily Beast "The best account we now have of the long legal and political rivalry between the world's first modern imperial powers."—Anthony Pagden, author of The Enlightenment and Why It Still Matters

16 MALCHOW, H. L. Special Relations: The Americanization Of Britain?
Stanford University Press, Palo Alto: 2011. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Special Relations reevaluates Anglo-American cultural exchange by exploring metropolitan London's culture and counterculture from the 1950s to the 1970s. It challenges a tendency in cultural studies to privilege local reception and attempts to restore the concept of Americanization in this critical era of mass tourism, professional exchange, and media globalization—while acknowledging an important degree of cultural hybridity and circularity. The study begins with the influence of American modernism in the built environment and in "Swinging London" generally, and then moves to its central project, the re-exploration of British counterculture—the anti-war movement, student rebellion, hippies, popular music, the alternative press, and the late Sixties triad of black, feminist, and gay liberationisms—as intimately tied to American experience and to American agents of cultural change. Special Relations retrieves these phenomena as more central and enduring in British metropolitan life than the current orthodoxy allows, and subjects to sharp critical scrutiny prevalent assertions of cultural "authenticity" in their British variants. Finally, the book looks at aspects of the turn against modernism and the counterculture in the 1970s. H. L. Malchow is Walter S. Dickson Professor of English and American History at Tufts University. "This is a major work of historical interpretation, strongly revisionist in its approach and cogently argued. A skeptical critic, Malchow offers an unsentimental, nuanced approach that eschews naēve anglophilia or American triumphalism. An American scholar who has closely observed life in Britain over many years, his personal experience clearly informs a work that is more insightful than any other on the subject."—Fred Leventhal, Boston University "Special Relations emphasizes the way America shaped late twentieth-century Britain socially, politically, and culturally. It is an exciting, provocative, and original contribution to the history of modern Britain, one that deserves a great deal of attention."—Stephen Brooke, York University

17 MCCLENAHAN, JR., WILLIAM M. & BECKER, WILLIAM H. Eisenhower And The Cold War Economy.
The Johns Hopkins Universiy Press, Baltimore and London: 2011. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Throughout his two-term presidency, Dwight D. Eisenhower faced the challenge of managing a period of peacetime prosperity after more than two decades of depression, war, and postwar inflation. The essential issue he addressed was how the country would pay for the deepening Cold War and the extent to which such unprecedented peacetime commitments would affect the United States economy and its institutions. William M. McClenahan, Jr., and William H. Becker explain how Eisenhower's beliefs and his experiences as a military bureaucrat and wartime and postwar commander shaped his economic policies. They explore the macro- and microeconomic policies his administration employed to finance the Cold War while adapting Republican ideas and Eisenhower's economic principles to new domestic and foreign policy environments. They also detail how Eisenhower worked with new instruments of government policy making, such as the Council of Economic Advisers and a strengthened Federal Reserve Board. In assessing his administration's policies, the authors demonstrate that, rather than focusing overwhelmingly on international political affairs at the expense of economic issues, Eisenhower's policies aimed to preserve and enhance the performance of the American free market system, which he believed was inextricably linked to the successful prosecution of the Cold War. While some of the decisions Eisenhower made did not follow conservative doctrine as closely as many in the Republican Party wanted, this book asserts that his approach to and distrust of partisan politics led to success on many fronts and indeed maintained and buttressed the nation's domestic and international economic health. An important and original contribution, this examination of the Eisenhower administration's economic policy enriches our understanding of the history of the modern American economy, the presidency, and conservatism in the United States. William M. McClenahan, Jr., is a lecturer in business law and public policy at the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland, College Park. William H. Becker is a professor in the Department of History and the Department of Strategic Management and Public Policy at the George Washington University. McClenahan and Becker are coauthors of The Market, the State and the Export-Import Bank of the United States, 1934-2000 and The Voice of the Market: A History of the National Petroleum Council.

18 MCDONAGH, REV. ENDA. Appeal To Abolish War.
St Pauls Publishers, Canfield: 2007. First Edition. #CDAH550 s Brand New CD. 
Originally, a proponent of the "just war theory", Rev. McDonagh shows how he has transcended his original position due to his working for peace around the world. He gives the history and limitations of the just war theory and insists the believers as individuals and the Church as a whole need to work to break our addition to violence as a way of solving human conflict. He quotes Eisenhower, the great general of WWII and president of the United States: "every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies a theft from those who hunger and are not fed and those who are cold and are not clothed - this world in arms is not spending money alone but the sweat of its labor, the genius of its scientist, the hope of its children." He calls upon the disciples of Christ to fulfill their priestly, prophetic and kingly tasks as captured in the Sermon on the Mount. The priestly task affirms the transcendence and power of God. The prophetic urges us to take care of our neighbors, the weak, the widow, the orphan, the stranger. The kingly task is to wisely organize a better society. The speaker challenges the listener to consider the possibility that was as a way of resolving conflict can be overcome. However, he illustrates that theree are terrible risks in peace as well as in war. He challenges the traditional pacifists to leave their ivory towers and get involved with the difficult and thankless tasks of dealing with the real world with its enormous problems. This is a thought-provoking program of faith. After hearing this you will understand the depth and breadth and profound longing that comes from liturgical greeting "Peace, be with you."
