Easy Reading, A hen who discovers a new hen house. Will she sleep in your bed.
Minerva, a self-made Cinderella, is aglow with sacrificial fervor, which alternates with a longing to continue living as the responsible daughter of the large family at the vicarage. However, she is to have a season in London, which she finds in violent collision with her personal code of morality. Her attempts to impose her ideas on others make enemies, and when she does realize she is truly in love with a man, these enemies act, forcing him to fight a duel. Not content with that, the man who challenged Lord Sylvester Comfrey manages to alienate Minerva from him by means of an anonymous letter and a page of an altered betting book. The vicar, at first resigned to his penniless state, compounded by the debt for Minerva's season in London, finds her unhappiness intolerable and sets out to remedy the situation.

"Even more valuable than its widely praised predecessor, The Culture of Narcissism." --John W. Aldridge Faced with an escalating arms race, rising crime and terrorism, environmental deterioration, and long-term economic decline, people have retreated from commitments that presuppose a secure and orderly world.

Among the five nations authorized under the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty to possess nuclear weapons, China has the smallest nuclear force and maintains the most restrained nuclear posture. In The Minimum Means of Reprisal, Jeffrey Lewis examines patterns in Chinese defense investments, strategic force deployments, and arms control behavior to develop an alternative assessment of China's nuclear forces. The Minimum Means of Reprisal finds that China's nuclear deployment and arms control patterns stem from the belief that deterrence is relatively unaffected by changes in the size, configuration, and readiness of nuclear forces. As a result, Lewis argues, Chinese policy has tended to sacrifice offensive capability in favor of greater political control and lower economic costs. The future of cooperative security arrangements in space will depend largely on the U. S. -Chinese relationship. Lewis warns that changes in U. S. defense strategy, including the development of new strategic forces and the weaponization of space, will prevent the United States from reassuring China in the event that its leaders begin to lose confidence in their restrained deterrent. The result may further damage the already weakened arms control regime and increase the threat to the United States and the world. Lewis provides policy guidance for those interested in the U. S. -Chinese security relationship and in global security arrangements more generally.
