Inspector Lynley investigates the London end of an ever more darkly disturbing case, with Barbara Havers and Winston Nkata looking behind the peaceful façade of country life to discover a twisted world of desire and deceit. The suicide of William Goldacre is devastating to those left behind. But what was the cause of his tragedy and how far might the consequences reach? Is there a link between the young man's leap from a Dorset cliff and a horrific poisoning in Cambridge? Following various career-threatening misdemeanours, Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers is desperate to redeem herself. So when a past encounter with bestselling feminist writer Clare Abbott and her pushy personal assistant Caroline Goldacre gives her a connection to the Cambridge murder, Barbara begs DI Thomas Lynley to let her pursue the crime. Full of shocks, intensity and suspense from first page to last, A Banquet of Consequences reveals both Lynley and Havers under pressure, and author Elizabeth George writing at the very height of her exceptional powers.

“The current environment of zero-cost money, concentrated bank power, and anaemic productive growth has coalesced not by accident or economic cycle but by wilful choice. Das warns that without significant change, the only possible future holds dire consequences for all but an elite few. His tone is as urgent as the problem. All central bankers, politicians, and citizens should heed his words.” Nomi Prins, author of Other People’s Money and All the Presidents’ Bankers “Written with passion and insight, and laden with facts, the book provides a clear explanation of the economic, social, and political issues that lie ahead, and the difficulty in solving them.” Jon Markman, Forbes columnist and president and publisher of Markman Capital Insight A Banquet of Consequences is an intricately researched, decisively written and devastating analysis of today’s economy. Satyajit Das connects disparate strands of a story, and in doing so delivers a damning critique of global economic policies of the last 50 years. He argues that governments and citizens of every political hue are now so addicted to growth and resistant to change, that a prolonged period of chronic stagnation, sustained by large infusions of monetary morphine and continuous interventions, or an unavoidable financial, political and social breakdown are the only possible outcomes.

Compassionate Eschatology

Do "eschatology" and "peace" go together? Is eschatology mostly about retribution and fear--or compassion and hope? Compassionate Eschatology brings together a group of international scholars representing a wide range of Christian traditions to address these questions. Together they make the case that Christianity's teaching about the "end times" should and can center on Jesus's message of peace and reconciliation. Offering a peace-oriented reading of the Book of Revelation and other biblical materials relevant to Christian eschatology, this book breaks new ground in its consistent message that compassion not retribution stands at the heart of the doctrine of the last things. Besides its creative treatment of biblical materials, Compassionate Eschatology also makes a distinctive contribution in how several essays engage the thought of Rene Girard and his mimetic theory. Girard's project is shown to reinforce the biblical message of eschatological peace.

Covert Action In The Cold War

Born out of the ashes of World War II, the covert action arm of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was created to counter the challenge posed by the Soviet Union and its allies and bolster American interests worldwide. Drawing on a wide range of activities that included propaganda, psychological warfare, political and economic operations and paramilitary action, the CIA aided wider American containment policy through the deployment of ‘democracy-propping’ operations in Western Europe. It took action to prevent developing countries that were allied to neither superpower from succumbing to Russian control and it engaged in rollback campaigns designed to weaken Moscow’s hold over its Eastern European satellites. An eclectic and well-resourced organisation, the agency also provided a substitute for overt military action when the need arose and afforded essential backup when the Cold War turned hot in Korea and Vietnam. The end of the Cold War opened the way for a partial lifting of the veil of secrecy that surrounded the CIA’s activities and the key role it played as an instrument of US national security policy. Using an extensive range of unpublished government records and documents, James Callanan traces the growth of the agency’s covert action mission chronologically, focusing on a number of crucial but previously overlooked dimensions of the CIA’s modus operandi. This comprehensive examination of a still controversial subject sheds valuable new light on the undercover operations mounted by the CIA in all corners of the globe during the Cold War. It digs deep into the arcane world of the CIA’s operations directorate and determines how its activities impacted on American interests and influenced wider perceptions, both of the agency itself and of the United States as a whole - perceptions that have often been inaccurate and misinformed but that nevertheless remain popularly held to the present day. Offering a powerful perspective on a pivotal period in American history, Covert Action in the Cold War makes a crucial contribution to our understanding of global politics during the Cold War.

A Special Forces veteran and security advisor shares what he’s learned about dealing with conflict: “A powerful book” (Peter Bergen). In this honest, hard-hitting look at war and peace, a Navy SEAL and experienced security consultant explains that force is sometimes necessary, that persuasion is more powerful, and that some conflict is unnecessary and preventable. The goal of Powerful Peace is to open the reader’s mind about other cultures to comprehend that different does not have to mean wrong—and that an individual’s life can be richer and more enjoyable when conflicts are handled wisely. Never before has a book been written by a SEAL with the intent of reducing conflict and its painful consequences for innocent victims. Powerful Peace addresses the hot topic of American fatigue from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan—and, in a political environment that has soured many citizens’ confidence in the direction of our national leadership, it offers hope that real solutions are available. “Folks in Washington know Rob DuBois, ‘The Velvet Glove.’ Now you can know the iron fist inside that glove.” —Rear Adm. Brian Losey, Commander, Special Operations Command Africa “Who else but a warrior could write so elegantly about peace?” —Reza Aslan
