Howe, Sonia E.
The mighty Russian Empire was not built in a day - from a small beginning and by a number of different processes it has grown to its present dimensions. For centuries it grew by immigration and colonisation, and it is only since the sixteenth century that expansion came by means of conquest. In the course of the ten and a half centuries of her existence, Russia's political centre has shifted three times: from Kiev to Vladimir, from Vladimir to Moscow, and from Moscow to St Petersburg. Each of these four names represents distinct phases of development and periods with very definite characteristics. This development has not been one of continuous growth: it was interrupted by a great calamity, the Mongol invasion, which darkened the thirteenth century, and from which it has taken centuries to recover. Again, the Russian nation is not a homogeneous whole, a nation of one blood; nor are her peoples all on the same level of culture. Unless these facts are grasped, and the causes underlying the complexity of Russian history come to be understood, there can be no exact comprehension or balanced judgement of her problems and difficulties, and the part she has to play among the nations. The aim in "A Thousand Years of Russian History" is to convey general impressions of the various stages passed through by Russia in the course of her evolution, and to give sketches of the lives of those of her rulers who have stamped their era with the mark of their personality. This book is a completely retyped and indexed version of the 1918 publication with the same name. 266pp.

Cohen, Yoel
This work is a charged revealing examination of the historical events surrounding the London "Sunday Times" headline of October 5, 1986: "Revealed: the secrets of Israel's nuclear arsenal". Mordechai Vanunu, was a former technician at Israel's secret nuclear research centre at Dimona, and had made public highly classified information about Israel's nuclear research program; for this he was kidnapped by the Mossad, subjected to a closed doors trial, convicted of espionage and treason, and subjected to an eighteen-year sentence. A careful and meticulous study of the Vanunu affair, this startling expose involves Israel's intelligence community, and draws from thousands of pages of court transcripts and testimony connected to the case. "The Whistleblower of Dimona" is compelling and strongly recommended reading - especially in light of contemporary international events in the Middle East. Some rubbing to rear board.368pp.

Edited By Clausen, Soren; Starrs, Roy and Wedell-Wedellsborg, Anne
Head of spine bumped with rubbing to corners of boards. This collection of 20 essays examines cultural encounters between - and within - China, Japan and the West. Rather than engaging in the theoretical debate of the cultural concepts as such, the authors present new research on a wide range of topics, from linguistics and literature to the worlds of sociology and political science. Despite the diversity of topics and approaches, the common focus is on the processes of cultural interaction and the dynamics of reception and communication. Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Institute of East Asian Studies at the University of Aarhus, Denmark, this book includes contributions by scholars associated with the institute, as well as by scholars from Europe, America, China and Japan who have been temporarily attached to it. 496pp.
