A man. A woman. An eternal love. A war. A lifetime commitment to an oath. Though a fictional novel, The Ambiance of Victoria approaches situations of life given, within the realm or domain of World War Two, from the perspectives of two people. The book is a struggle for victory surrounded by an environment of defeat. There is the aftermath reality of war that not only must be accepted, but risen above, surmounted, and overcome. The Ambiance of Victory revolves around two people resolved to survive for their history, their philosophy, and their religion. They endure and exist and continue to exist for each other. In a world of hate; they love. Not only do they greatly care for and love each other, they live for their one common denominator. They live for their disciplines of life and only their love for their God trumps all else. Within The Ambiance of Victoria there is the achievement to worth. For two people, greatly in love, the eventual quality of triumph and achievement becomes reality. The above aspects are told from a unique perspective. The lives of two individuals are shaped by the times in which they live and the commitments adhered to and moved toward. There will be the views of many individuals which shape the two main personalities of character. And the two main characters certainly shape each other as they themselves shape others. As the years come and go, they continue to greatly love one another.

In this volume, nine renowned experts delineate their theoretical or methodological approach of Aikidô in potentiating constructive handling of social conflicts. The authors depict the contribution of the Japanese self-defensive art Aikidô to the theory and practice of conflict transformation. The concept of Elicitive Conflict Transformation (Lederach, Dietrich) necessarily calls for a revised understanding of applied peace work and a new personal profile of the conflict worker. This is the point where Aikidô and conflict/peace work meet.

Up until now, the Korean War has been the black hole of modern American history. The Coldest Winter changes that, giving readers a masterful narrative of the political decisions and miscalculations on both sides. He charts the disastrous path that led to the massive entry of Chinese forces near the Yalu, and that caught Douglas MacArthur and his soldiers by surprise. He provides astonishingly vivid and nuanced portraits of all the major figures -- Eisenhower, Truman, Acheson, Kim, and Mao, and Generals MacArthur, Almond, and Ridgway. At the heart of the book are the individual stories of the soldiers on the front lines who were left to deal with the consequences of the dangerous misjudgments and competing agendas of powerful men. We meet them, follow them, and see some of the most dreadful battles in history through their eyes. As ever, Halberstam was concerned with the extraordinary courage and resolve of people asked to bear an extraordinary burden. Contemporary history in its most literary and luminescent form, The Coldest Winter provides crucial perspective on the Vietnam War and the events of today.

Defence, Diplomacy, Development and the Taliban. When the US were looking at answers to solve the problems in Afghanistan they were drawn to the success of the Royal Dutch Armed forces in the rugged province of Uruzgan, the Dutch credited the success in that province to their approach of diplomacy, development and defence. They neglected to mention their Australian allies. Now can be revealed for the  first time the Australian unit that was behind the Dutch success and the story of modern Australian soldiers in a harsh, uncompromising war. Afghan Sun is a compelling account of modern Australian soldiers living and fighting during the Summer Fighting Season of 2008 in Uruzgan province. Opening the door on Australia’s involvement in Afghanistan, we are able to glimpse for the first time how the war has been managed and conducted from the perspective of one of the commanders on the ground.
