📒Warriors Pu Ali Koa ✍ Lincoln C. Yamashita
📝Warriors Pu Ali Koa SYNOPSIS : Warriors: Pu` Ali Koa explores the history of how the Hawaiians established their culture and lifestyle while also chronicling historical events of the twentieth century. While researching the history of Hawaii, author Lincoln Yamashita realized that the role of the warrior in Hawaiian history had not been properly documented. To provide a complete and accurate portrait of the warrior, he determined that it was essential to document the role of Warrior Spirit, the legacy of Hawaiian culture, and the history of the Hawaiian nation. Many of the stories of the Hawaiian warriors have been passed down from generation to generation through oral storytelling. Yamashita has gathered the historical stories of the great warriors into this single volume. Warriors: Pu` Ali Koa documents a history that is vital to the cultural fabric of the forty-ninth state. For example, the legacy of the Hawaii Army National Guard began with the first Polynesians who originated in Southeast Asia. The Ancient Ones traveled over 2,300 miles from their homeland northward to the islands of Hawai`i. There they established a culture and language that are unique to these islands. These early warriors, and those who followed them, have made Hawai`i what it is today: beautiful, exotic, and true to their native culture and homeland.
📒Warriors 2 ✍ Gardner Dozois
📝Warriors 2 SYNOPSIS : From George R. R. Martin's Introduction to Warriors: "People have been telling stories about warriors for as long as they have been telling stories. Since Homer first sang the wrath of Achilles and the ancient Sumerians set down their tales of Gilgamesh, warriors, soldiers, and fighters have fascinated us; they are a part of every culture, every literary tradition, every genre. All Quiet on the Western Front, From Here to Eternity, and The Red Badge of Courage have become part of our literary canon, taught in classrooms all around the country and the world. Our contributors make up an all-star lineup of award-winning and bestselling writers, representing a dozen different publishers and as many genres. We asked each of them for the same thing—a story about a warrior. Some chose to write in the genre they're best known for. Some decided to try something different.

📒The Warriors ✍ Paul Batista
📝The Warriors SYNOPSIS : High-stakes politics and the rivalry between two powerful women in the trial of the century. Legendary defense attorney Raquel Rematti represents a presidential candidate―and former First Lady of an ISIS-assassinated President―Senator Angelina Baldesteri in the most watched and explosive trial of the 21st Century. The Senator, a Democrat, sees it as a vendetta show trial orchestrated by the current Republican US President, his Republican Attorney General, and an ambitious Republican United States Attorney in Manhattan. At the trial, a year before the election, the Senator faces charges of election fraud, tax evasion, and money laundering; each of which could deem her unfit for office and all but remove her from the Presidential race. As the epic trial unfolds, Raquel is staggered by her client’s naked ambition and the extent of the complex relationships the Senator keeps hidden in a mounting trail of lies. Every aspect of the Senator’s life is inundated with intrigue. When the swirling forces start getting lethal, Raquel needs to extricate herself from the venom of these illicit and treacherous connections. These two powerful women keep things professional in the courtroom under the eyes of a crusty old judge, but once outside, they pit themselves against each other, warrior to warrior. At the end, only one will be left standing.

📒Impotent Warriors ✍ Susie Kilshaw
📝Impotent Warriors SYNOPSIS : From September 1990 to June 1991, the UK deployed 53,462 military personnel in the Gulf War. After the end of the conflict anecdotal reports of various disorders affecting troops who fought in the Gulf began to surface. This mysterious illness was given the name "Gulf War Syndrome" (GWS). This book is an investigation into this recently emergent illness, particularly relevant given ongoing UK deployments to Iraq, describing how the illness became a potent symbol for a plethora of issues, anxieties, and concerns. At present, the debate about GWS is polarized along two lines: there are those who think it is a unique, organic condition caused by Gulf War toxins and those who argue that it is probably a psychological condition that can be seen as part of a larger group of illnesses. Using the methods and perspective of anthropology, with its focus on nuances and subtleties, the author provides a new approach to understanding GWS, one that makes sense of the cultural circumstances, specific and general, which gave rise to the illness.
📒Corporate Warriors ✍ P. W. Singer
📝Corporate Warriors SYNOPSIS : Some have claimed that "War is too important to be left to the generals," but P. W. Singer asks "What about the business executives?" Breaking out of the guns-for-hire mold of traditional mercenaries, corporations now sell skills and services that until recently only state militaries possessed. Their products range from trained commando teams to strategic advice from generals. This new "Privatized Military Industry" encompasses hundreds of companies, thousands of employees, and billions of dollars in revenue. Whether as proxies or suppliers, such firms have participated in wars in Africa, Asia, the Balkans, and Latin America. More recently, they have become a key element in U.S. military operations. Private corporations working for profit now sway the course of national and international conflict, but the consequences have been little explored. In Corporate Warriors, Singer provides the first account of the military services industry and its broader implications. Corporate Warriors includes a description of how the business works, as well as portraits of each of the basic types of companies: military providers that offer troops for tactical operations; military consultants that supply expert advice and training; and military support companies that sell logistics, intelligence, and engineering. This updated edition of Singer's already classic account of the military services industry and its broader implications describes the continuing importance of that industry in the Iraq War. This conflict has amply borne out Singer's argument that the privatization of warfare allows startling new capabilities and efficiencies in the ways that war is carried out. At the same time, however, Singer finds that the introduction of the profit motive onto the battlefield raises troubling questions-for democracy, for ethics, for management, for human rights, and for national security.
