A bracingly immediate memoir by a young man coming of age during the Syrian war, an intimate lens on the century’s bloodiest conflict, and a profound meditation on kinship, home, and freedom. A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK • LONGLISTED FOR THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARD • “This powerful memoir, illuminated with Molly Crabapple’s extraordinary art, provides a rare lens through which we can see a region in deadly conflict.”—Bryan Stevenson, author of Just Mercy In 2011, Marwan Hisham and his two friends—fellow working-class college students Nael and Tareq—joined the first protests of the Arab Spring in Syria, in response to a recent massacre. Arm-in-arm they marched, poured Coca-Cola into one another’s eyes to blunt the effects of tear gas, ran from the security forces, and cursed the country’s president, Bashar al-Assad. It was ecstasy. A long-bottled revolution was finally erupting, and freedom from a brutal dictator seemed, at last, imminent. Five years later, the three young friends were scattered: one now an Islamist revolutionary, another dead at the hands of government soldiers, and the last, Marwan, now a journalist in Turkish exile, trying to find a way back to a homeland reduced to rubble. Marwan was there to witness and document firsthand the Syrian war, from its inception to the present. He watched from the rooftops as regime warplanes bombed soldiers; as revolutionary activist groups, for a few dreamy days, spray-painted hope on Raqqa; as his friends died or threw in their lot with Islamist fighters. He became a journalist by courageously tweeting out news from a city under siege by ISIS, the Russians, and the Americans all at once. He saw the country that ran through his veins—the country that held his hopes, dreams, and fears—be destroyed in front of him, and eventually joined the relentless stream of refugees risking their lives to escape. Illustrated with more than eighty ink drawings by Molly Crabapple that bring to life the beauty and chaos, Brothers of the Gun offers a ground-level reflection on the Syrian revolution—and how it bled into international catastrophe and global war. This is a story of pragmatism and idealism, impossible violence and repression, and, even in the midst of war, profound acts of courage, creativity, and hope. “A book of startling emotional power and intellectual depth.”—Pankaj Mishra, author of Age of Anger and From the Ruins of Empire “A revelatory and necessary read on one of the most destructive wars of our time.”—Angela Davis

Buford Lance fought for every inch of his B-L connected ranch, so he'd be damned if he was going to hand over a large portion of his Cottonwood Creek range to homesteaders. Instead, he decides to fight again. This time, he hires two of the best guns in the business. Lucas Kane: The Gun King. They said he was invincible, that there was nobody faster. Jordan Kane: The Prince. Next in line for the throne. He'd take on any job. It was said that he'd shoot his own mother if the price was right. One, an out and out killer, the other, his polar opposite who could never commit murder no matter the price. When Lucas Kane refuses the job, Lance has him bushwhacked. It begins an infamous blood-letting talked about for years to come and leads to the change of a town's name in an effort to forget. Ultimately, it draws two brothers into a showdown where only one can walk away. Will the 'Gun King' keep his throne? Or can the 'Prince' finally get to wear the crown he desperately covets?

In his novel Brothers of the Gun, David Alexander has redefined the technothriller. What is more, he has succeeded in writing a novel that is not only a fast-moving adventure tale that stands on its own merits, but which has unearthed the story of an incredible array of pre-20th century military technology that has, in its totality, never before seen publication in fiction or nonfiction. The way he tells the story, these weapons might well give anything in today's 21st century arsenals a run for the money. But as incredible as these early superweapons appear, Brothers of the Gun is no mere fact-binge but a thrill-packed novel in all respects. Here too, the story succeeds brilliantly, with some of the gutsiest characters, some of the best spun action scenes and some of the most unexpected twists and turns of a great plot that have ever appeared in print. The Brothers are a group of former soldiers of fortune who have banded together to stage an almost impossible mission into the Sudanese stronghold of the 19th Century's version of bin Laden, a warrior chieftain called the Mahdi. The Mahdi has stolen the prize possession of the Sultan of Zanzibar, who, with the blessing of the British and American governments, and the personal intervention of the age's best-known soldier-adventurer, Charles George "Chinese" Gordon, has contracted one of the era's most notorious freebooters, Snakeskin Blake, to lead the mission. Blake assembles a team of hand-picked covert special operators, armed with a unique array of weapons, and skilled in unconventional tactics, to stage the dangerous and daring rescue into the heart of a desert warlord's territory. These are the Brothers of the Gun, comprising a collection of fighting skills and special weapons and tactics that make their small group a match for the army confronting them. Yet once the mission is accomplished it becomes obvious that the team has only scratched the surface. The entire region is gripped by war fever and has erupted into violence. The Brothers of the Gun are then tasked with a new and far more dangerous mission, one from which it's likely that none of them will ever return alive, leading to a conclusion as powerful as it is boldly and originally conceived.

Despite the heated competition for colonial possessions in Papua New Guinea during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the personnel required to run an effective administration were scarce. As a result, the Australian colonial regime opted for a quick solution: it engaged Papua New Guineans often to perform the most hazardous and most unpopular responsibilities. Based on extensive interviews with former policemen, written records of the time, and reminiscences of colonial officials, this book links events involving police, villagers, and government officers (kiaps) over a forty-year period to wider issues in the colonial history of Papua New Guinea and, by extension, of the Pacific Islands and beyond."
