A year ago, few people had heard of ISIS-- today, they are a major terrorist threat. Despite numerous warnings from intelligence services, ISIS's rise to power has left countries around the world floundering for solutions. Today, we face a threat that is more violent, powerful and financially stronger than ever before. In this book, Journalist Benjamin Hall will provide insights by answering the basic questions we still don't have the answers to; Who are they? Where did they come from? How are they so successful, so quickly? How can they be stopped? By embedding himself behind enemy lines, Hall provides a riveting narrative based on firsthand experience and personal interviews. He goes beyond the vicious jihadis, to reveal a generation of chaos, and uncover a volatile region engulfed in turmoil. Hall reveals why ISIS is a problem that will define the Middle East - and the West - for decades to come.
It was a $500 billion scam--far exceeding the cost of rebuilding all of Western Europe after the Second World War plus ten years of air, land, and sea warfare during the Vietnam conflict. As huge as the Enron bankruptcy may be, it is dwarfed by the savings and loan scandal of the 1980s, which remains the worst collapse of a financial institution in American history. A trio of investigative reporters led by freelance journalist Stephen Pizzo plunged into the depths of these crimes and hauled up this shocking chronicle of fraud, corruption, and self-dealing so deep and extensive that every taxpayer is paying the price to this day. In Inside Job, Pizzo and his partners reveal the relationship between S&L ripoffs and covert CIA operations; between junk bonds promoted by so-called distinguished brokerage houses and the plundering of the life savings of trusting investors; between shady felons and winking politicians right up to not one but two Presidents of the United States. After reading Inside Job you will never look at your banker, broker, or political representative the same way again.
A tale of spiritualists, seances, skeptics, and a love that just might be able to rise above it all.

Inside Man presents readers with an exercise in modeling human ways of being-thinking, feeling, acting. This book does not merely introduce models, but also attempts to teach modeling and to produce, within the reader, the predispositions and attitudes of the modeler: a distance from the individual whose behavior is modeled, an engineering approach to the model-building process, a (self)-critical approach to the model testing and elaboration process, and a pedagogical and a therapeutic approach to enacting and communicating models. Author Mihnea C. Moldoveanu makes the process and the phenomenon of modeling transparent and explicit, and clarifies the reasons for which modeling human behavior has to be an interactive process between the modeler and the modeled. This perspective situatesInside Manat the intersection of analytical and computational thinking about rationality, reasoning, choice and thinking, and the tradition of action science and action research.

McDonough, DPH, a health policy expert who served as an advisor to the late Senator Edward Kennedy, provides a vivid picture of the intense effort required to bring this legislation into law. McDonough clearly explains the ACA's inner workings, revealing the rich landscape of the issues, policies, and controversies embedded in the law yet unknown to most Americans. In his account of these historic events, McDonough takes us through the process from the 2008 presidential campaign to the moment in 2010 when President Obama signed the bill into law. At a time when the nation is taking a second look at the ACA, Inside National Health Reform provides the essential information for Americans to make informed judgments about this landmark law.
For policy makers, legislators, analysts, intelligence and military professionals, students, and researchers, Sagan (political science, Stanford U. ) compiles six essays that consider the spread of nuclear weapons in India and Pakistan and the potential consequences of proliferation, including the possibility of war. Scholars of government, Asian studies, international relations and politics, national security affairs, and political science in the US and UK illustrate the complexity of the decision-making process and the diversity of opinions on nuclear weapons issues in these countries by providing insight on the domestic politics and organizational interests behind policies and a critique of narrow views of nuclear proliferation in general. They examine why nuclear capabilities have not led to peace and consider domestic political interests, civil-military relations, and bureaucratic processes that contribute to policy choices related to nuclear testing at various times.
