“The 1983 bombing of the U.S. Marine Beirut compound and of the nearby French paratroopers’ building was a declaration of war by radical Islamists against Western influence in the Middle East. It marked the beginning of an asymmetrical war, one that continues to this day.

The Marines in Lebanon, under the command of Col. Tim Geraghty, realized the magnitude of the challenge and the seriousness of the dangers this meant to the security of the free world. Yet it took the politicians in Washington 18 more years to reach the same conclusions.

...<b>State Crime, the Media, and the Invasion of Panama (Praeger Series in Criminology and Crime Control Policy)</b>, Johns, Christina J.;  Johnson, P. Ward
14 Johns, Christina J.; Johnson, P. Ward ...State Crime, the Media, and the Invasion of Panama (Praeger Series in Criminology and Crime Control Policy)
USA: Praeger, 1993. 0275943143 / 9780275943141 Hardcover.
 
No flaws or blemishes, Gift Quality.
Johns and Johnson analyze the invasion of Panama in order to explore the ways in which the War on Drugs has been used as an ideological justification for a projection of U.S. state power into Latin America.
They characterize the Bush Administration's reasons for the invasion as cynical ideological rhetoric which covered up strategic interests the United States had in deposing Noriega and replacing him with a more cooperative regime.
The authors particularly discuss the role of media coverage, including the demonization of Noriega and the immediate adoption by the corporate media of the name Operation Just Cause, in legitimating the invasion and transforming it in popular ideology as a law enforcement operation.
Finally, they examine the aftermath of the invasion in the United States--Bush's popularity ratings, the distortion of civilian casualty information, the macho celebration of the war--and in Panama--the destruction of the labor and independence movements, the puppet Endara government, and the increased drug trafficking through Panama.

No Flaws or Blemishes; Gift Quality.
The rapid emergence of China and India as prime locations for low-cost manufacturing has led some analysts to conclude that manufacturers in the "old economies"-the U.S., U.K., Germany, and Japan-are being edged out of a profitable future.
But if countries that historically have been at the forefront of events in manufacturing can adapt adroitly, opportunities are by no means over, says the author of this timely book.
Peter Marsh explores 250 years in the history of manufacturing, then examines the characteristics of the industrial revolution that is taking place right now.
