From Atlanta to Alaska to the exotic shores of Indonesia, Frank and Joe Hardy have penetrated the inner sanctum of a worldwide terrorist network: the Assassins. Now drawn into the enemy's lair, the Hardy's face their greatest challenge and greatest risk-to uncover the true purpose and power of the violent criminal conspiracy. Trapped deep in the Indonesian jungle, their covers blown, the boys can't afford to turn back. They confront a force so potent, an intelligence so evil, there's no time to seek reinforcements. Braving the heights of terror, Frank and Joe alone will have to defuse an explosive scheme that could erupt into a catastrophe of global proportions! ============== From inside the book: LAND OF THE LOST Frank stared down from the wall at the yard below. It was almost empty, except for a stone sculpture of a small dinosaur at one end, away from the building. Before Frank could say anything, Joe jumped off the wall, somersaulting as he landed and rolling to his feet. Frank shrugged and jumped too, landing the same way his brother had. "Now let's see if we can find a way in," Frank said. "Maybe around back-" "Frank." Joe's arm shot out across his brother's chest, stopping Frank dead in his tracks. He pointed across the yard. "I don't think that's a statue." The statue was moving toward them. "It's alive," Frank said, not believing his own words. He watched the creature as it came closer to them. It had to be at least eight feet long and weigh several hundred pounds. "That's no dinosaur . . . it's a Komodo dragon ... a man-eater!"

Asia, the Pacific Islands and the coasts of the Americas have long been studied separately. This essential single-volume history of the Pacific traces the global interactions and remarkable peoples that have connected these regions with each other and with Europe and the Indian Ocean, for millennia. From ancient canoe navigators, monumental civilisations, pirates and seaborne empires, to the rise of nuclear testing and global warming, Matt Matsuda ranges across the frontiers of colonial history, anthropology and Pacific Rim economics and politics, piecing together a history of the region. The book identifies and draws together the defining threads and extraordinary personal narratives which have contributed to this history, showing how localised contacts and contests have often blossomed into global struggles over colonialism, tourism and the rise of Asian economies. Drawing on Asian, Oceanian, European, American, ancient and modern narratives, the author assembles a fascinating Pacific region from a truly global perspective.
"This extraordinarily important book cuts to the heart of one of the central reasons movements to bring about social and environmental justice always fail. The fundamental question here is: is violence ever an acceptable tool to help bring about social change? This is probably the most important question of our time, yet so often discussions around it fall into clichés and magical thinking: that somehow if we are merely good and nice enough people, the state will stop using its violence to exploit us all. Would that this were true." --Derrick Jensen, author of Endgame, from the introduction. Pacifism, the ideology of nonviolent political resistance, has been the norm among mainstream North American progressive groups for decades. But to what end? Ward Churchill challenges the pacifist movement's heralded victories--Gandhi in India, 1960s antiwar activists, even Martin Luther King's civil rights movement--suggesting that their success was in spite of, rather than because of, their nonviolent tactics. Pacifism as Pathology was written as a response not only to Churchill's frustration with his own activist experience, but also to a debate raging in the activist and academic communities. He argues that pacifism is in many ways counterrevolutionary; that it defends the status quo, and doesn't lead to social change. In these times of upheaval and global protest, this is a vital and extremely relevant book. Ward Churchill is a prolific writer and lecturer, having authored, co-authored, or edited over twenty books. He is a member of the leadership council of Colorado AIM (American Indian Movement).
