Cuba Libre, The Defector is a behind the headlines look at a Cuban officer thrown into national fame by a single act of courage. He led an aerial attack against Cuba's former President Batista causing him to flee the country. Batista was secretly waging war against freedom fighters in the Cuban mountains and needed all available medical personnel. Hospitals surrounding Havana suddenly were lacking medical people. Many hospital patients suffered unattended and some died prematurely due to squandered medical supplies and attention. Among the death toll was the young wife of the Cuban officer. Swept up in national pride and desire for justice, the young officer found himself in the middle of an insurrection led by an inexperienced idealist named Fidel Castro. The new regime also held unsavory elements for this justice driven man. Castro had ulterior plans to join forces with the Soviet Union as Communism began to threaten the officer's homeland. Forced to strike a deal, he sides with the United States. The deal would guarantee the United States to acquire the Soviet's most prized possession and the officers' freedom in return.

It's been three years since Germany's unconditional surrender, and United States Army Sergeant Rich Hammond remains on duty after originally being drafted in 1942. Exploiting the divisions between East and West Germany, Hammond runs a profitable black market business for drugs, cigarettes, porn-even Spam-as goods remain sparse. But Hammond's dealings make him a perfect target for the Russians in their search for spies. With tensions between the United States and Russia escalating, Hammond is blackmailed into supplying seemingly mundane information. It's a role that suits him, at least while he's still stationed in Germany. When Hammond is shipped back to the States, the stakes begin to rise. The Russians want Hammond as a stateside operative, but Hammond wants that part of his life left in Europe. Unfortunately, he can't shake it off. Only slightly behind Hammond on his trail of treason is Carl Foreman, an officer serving in Army Counterintelligence. As Foreman begins to rise through the ranks, he puzzles together pieces of Hammond's deceptions, even as the trail just seems to become more and more confusing. With the twists and turns of this spy game ever more entangling, discover if Hammond is able to keep Foreman at arm's length-or if the spy will ultimately meet his demise.

With Comeuppance, William Flesch delivers the freshest, most generous thinking about the novel since Walter Benjamin wrote on the storyteller and Wayne C. Booth on the rhetoric of fiction. In clear and engaging prose, Flesch integrates evolutionary psychology into literary studies, creating a new theory of fiction in which form and content flawlessly intermesh. Fiction, Flesch contends, gives us our most powerful way of making sense of the social world. Comeuppance begins with an exploration of the appeal of gossip and ends with an account of how we can think about characters and care about them as much as about persons we know to be real. We praise a storyteller who contrives a happy or at least an appropriate ending, and fault the writer who refuses us one. Flesch uses Darwinian theory to show how fiction satisfies our desire to see the good vindicated and the wicked get their comeuppance. He conveys the danger and excitement of reading fiction with nimble intelligence and provides wide reference to stories both familiar and little known. Flesch has given us a book that is sure to claim a central place in the discussion of literature and the humanities.

This book explores the exciting new field of Artificial Intelligence. It features in-depth coverage of important theoretical areas, including computational organization, computational economics, computational approaches in social science, and game theory. The concepton of the multi-agent system is particularly attractive, as it promises autonomy based on the conceptual speciality of a rational agent as well as collective behavior through interactions. The book draws out themes, especially the ideas of connectivity and natural computation, that reveal deep, underlying similarities between phenomena that have formerly been treated as completely distinct. The idea of agent-based approach is particularly rich in fresh approaches applicable to many fields such as artificial intelligence, computational organization, computational economics, and computational game theory.

If the experts could point to any single book as a starting point for understanding the subject of intelligence from the late twentieth century to today, that single book would be Allen W. Dulles's The Craft of Intelligence. This classic of spycraft is based on Allen Dulles's incomparable experience as a diplomat, international lawyer, and America's premier intelligence officer. Dulles was a high-ranking officer of the CIA's predecessor--the Office of Strategic Services--and was present at the inception of the CIA, where he served eight of his ten years there as director. Here he sums up what he learned about intelligence from nearly a half-century of experience in foreign affairs. In World War II his OSS agents penetrated the German Foreign Office, worked with the anti-Nazi underground resistance, and established contacts that brought about the Nazi military surrender in North Italy. Under his direction the CIA developed both a dedicated corps of specialists and a whole range of new intelligence devices, from the U-2 high-altitude photographic plane to minute electronic listening and transmitting equipment. Dulles reveals much about how intelligence is collected and processed, and how the resulting estimates contribute to the formation of national policy. He discusses methods of surveillance, and the usefulness of defectors from hostile nations. His knowledge of Soviet espionage techniques is unrivaled, and he explains how the Soviet State Security Service recruited operatives and planted "illegals" in foreign countries. He spells out not only the techniques of modern espionage but also the philosophy and role of intelligence in a free society threatened by global conspiracies. Dulles also addresses the Bay of Pigs incident, denying that the 1961 invasion was based on a CIA estimate that a popular Cuban uprising would ensue. This account is enlivened with a wealth of personal anecdotes. It is a book for readers who seek wider understanding of the contribution of intelligence to our national security.

In South Korea, the contentious debate over relations with the North transcends traditional considerations of physical and economic security, and political activists play a critical role in shaping the discussion of these issues as they pursue the separate yet connected agendas of democracy, human rights, and unification. Providing international observers with a better understanding of policymakers' management of inter-Korean relations, Danielle L. Chubb traces the development of various policy disputes and perspectives from the 1970s through South Korea's democratic transition. Focusing on four case studies—the 1980 Kwangju uprising, the June 1987 uprising, the move toward democracy in the 1990s, and the decade of "progressive" government that began with the election of Kim Dae Jung in 1997—she tracks activists' complex views on reunification along with the rise and fall of more radical voices encouraging the adoption of a North Korean–style form of socialism. While these specific arguments have dissipated over the years, their vestiges can still be found in recent discussions over how to engage with North Korea and bring security and peace to the peninsula. Extending beyond the South Korean example, this examination shows how the historical trajectory of norms and beliefs can have a significant effect on a state's threat perception and security policy. It also reveals how political activists, in their role as discursive agents, play an important part in the creation of the norms and beliefs directing public debate over a state's approach to the ethical and practical demands of its foreign policy.

How a Chinese pirate defeated European colonialists and won Taiwan during the seventeenth century During the seventeenth century, Holland created the world's most dynamic colonial empire, outcompeting the British and capturing Spanish and Portuguese colonies. Yet, in the Sino-Dutch War—Europe's first war with China—the Dutch met their match in a colorful Chinese warlord named Koxinga. Part samurai, part pirate, he led his generals to victory over the Dutch and captured one of their largest and richest colonies—Taiwan. How did he do it? Examining the strengths and weaknesses of European and Chinese military techniques during the period, Lost Colony provides a balanced new perspective on long-held assumptions about Western power, Chinese might, and the nature of war. It has traditionally been asserted that Europeans of the era possessed more advanced science, technology, and political structures than their Eastern counterparts, but historians have recently contested this view, arguing that many parts of Asia developed on pace with Europe until 1800. While Lost Colony shows that the Dutch did indeed possess a technological edge thanks to the Renaissance fort and the broadside sailing ship, that edge was neutralized by the formidable Chinese military leadership. Thanks to a rich heritage of ancient war wisdom, Koxinga and his generals outfoxed the Dutch at every turn. Exploring a period when the military balance between Europe and China was closer than at any other point in modern history, Lost Colony reassesses an important chapter in world history and offers valuable and surprising lessons for contemporary times.

HELL IS TOO GOOD A PLACE FOR A SADIST. . . . Twenty years after ex-CIA special ops agent Ian Wallace watched a KGB colonel brutally murder the love of his life and their unborn child, he’s still wishing the monster Vladimir Ivanchenko had killed him off, too. Endlessly haunted by nightmarish memories of torture, Wallace, the fanatically conservative private investigator, can’t seem to escape the bowels of Moscow’s Lubyanka prison, even while reaping the comforts of life in suburban Boston. But when the devil himself comes to Beantown on another twisted mission, who better to hunt down Ivanchenko—the Russian mafia don now deemed the most dangerous man in the world—than the fueled-by-guilt and hungry-for-revenge Wallace? All he must do to earn the forty grand the CIA offers him for the task is dedicate the next two weeks of his life to guarding Ivanchenko’s target—an obnoxious, greedy, and big government–loving MIT professor, whose research on Ballistic Missile Defense is a matter of national security. That, and partner up with the irresistibly sexy and tough-as-nails Kathy Donahue. Straight from the bleak deserts of war-torn Afghanistan, she just might be the secret to opening up Wallace’s sealed and scarred heart. Tension between the highly experienced agents builds, but Wallace’s bloodthirsty desire for Ivanchenko’s demise reveals his own evil nature, scaring Donahue away. And, as friends and enemies sacrifice their lives to harbor and reveal secrets, Wallace doesn’t know to what maniacal extreme he will go to bury his own.
