Liz Carlyle has been transferred to Counter-Espionage, along with her research sidekick Peggy Kingsolving. Although the department has downsized since the end of the Cold War, there are still spies: including Russian spies who now keep an eye on the international financial community as well as the wealthy, influential Russian "oligarchs" in London. Liz is assigned to stop a Russian government plot to "silence" one of these oligarchs, Nikita Brunovsky, who is an increasingly vocal opponent of the Putin regime. Almost simultaneously, Liz and Peggy learn of the presence of an Illegal Support officer in London, one Vladimir Rykov, who is putatively attached to the Russian embassy. An Illegal is someone who operates (often for many years) under a completely fabricated identity - and Rykov, it seem, has been sent to London to help an Illegal now based there. To protect Brunovsky from his Kremlin foes, Liz goes undercover and joins the oligarch's retinue. As she tries to determine who around the Russian might be willing to betray him, she has to consider too whether this traitor may not also be the Illegal she and Peggy are seeking. 1.

If you lived on the notorious Canterbury Estate in the ‘40s and ‘50s, then you knew there was one man you did not want to cross: Charlie Hudson. A solitary man, feared and respected by the gangsters of the time, Charlie was a boxer who never lost a fight, in or out of the ring - the most infamous of The Canterbury Warriors. My Uncle Charlie, the second title in the explosive series unravels a story of debauchery, crime and self-destruction. Charlie Hudson was a born leader. The eldest of eight brothers and four sisters and with a boxer for a father, fighting was in his blood. And as the young protégé of local Italian gangster, Mr Cappovanni, Charlie not only learned to knock every opponent out, he also learned the tools of the crime and extortion trade well; emerging into adulthood in the middle of the war years as a natural heir: running cons, illegal books and a band of prostitutes. But when Charlie met Betty, a sweet, caring girl, he was determined to be a better man for her. He'd still deal with ‘business' but no more would he bed his working girls, and the birth of their baby girl, Elizabeth, sealed it: he knew life could not get any better. But for a man who had only ever lived in the belly of the Canterbury Estate underworld, it could definitely get worse… Gritty and engrossing, book two of the Hudson family saga delves deeper into history of the infamous Canterbury Warriors; the true story of one man's ascendancy to power, and the tragedy that brought it all crashing down. 1.

US-Africa Relations: The Donald Trump Presidency
39,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

It is incontrovertible to allude to the fact that the election and emergence of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America has brought about some misgivings across many countries of the world with several implications for Africa. It is expected that there would be continuity in US-Africa relations in the areas of safety, security and counter-terrorism. Trump has been a consistent opponent of marriage equality in line with African culture while illegal African migrants would now find it difficult to move into the US. The administration is tilted towards re-negotiating American foreign trade deals that favor bilateral trade agreements (BITs) over multi-party agreements while the disposition of Trump would affect Africa negatively on climate change. The paper concludes that Trump's presidency is an admixture of good and bad omen for the Sub-Saharan Africa and recommended an urgent need for Africa to really look inward through purposeful leadership, embracing vibrant natural resource governance, curbing corruption and having the strong political-will to develop by depending less on foreign intervention.

Zambia - The Freedom Struggle and The Aftermath
41,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Zambia obtained independence in 1964 after a bitter freedom struggle with the colonial power Britain. This book covers that period and events that followed the attainment of self-rule. The story is biographical in context, and describes through the personal and political life of one of Zambia's most prominent freedom-fighters Sylvester Mwamba Chisembele, a social and political history which includes the intrigues and plots that emerged before and after independence. Sylvester Chisembele was born in Luapula Province, Zambia (then Northern Rhodesia). He was educated at Lubushi Seminary run by the Catholic White Fathers from where he entered the political campaign for freedom from colonial rule. He quickly rose to prominence and became a leading figure in the struggle. During this period he survived an assassination attempt on his life as well as a failed plot to charge him with treason instigated by the colonial administration. Amongst other important events a description is given of the circumstances surrounding the imposition of the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland; the broken promises made to the Litunga, ruler of Barotseland; the visit of the British Prime Minister to the territory in the early 1960s and the subsequent boycott of the Monkton Commission. The colonial administration went to extraordinary lengths in order to keep the people in check. They attempted to involve the Prefect of Fort Rosebery Catholic Church who, misinformed, threatened excommunication to those who joined the freedom fight. Once the freedom struggle was underway, the story describes the indifference of the colonisers which escalated into a cruelty and hostility that saw people maimed, shot and killed. The book recalls the dismay of some British Members of Parliament who were appalled at the treatment, illegal arrests and imprisonment of freedom fighters and trade union miners' leaders. From the attainment of independence the book moves on to Zambian rule, the difficulties, the corruption and the endeavours made to reduce the power which a British-prepared constitution gave to one individual. That led to one-man dictatorship which took years to remove and still exists in principle today. After independence Chisembele played a prominent role in public life as a Member of Parliament holding various ministerial positions in Zambian governments from the outset in 1964 until 1983, after which time he continued as an advisor, opponent and outspoken critic of corruption in government administrations, which saw him victimized but unrelenting. The book covers the transition of power from Kenneth Kaunda after a groundswell of public opinion forced him to allow multi-party politics which in the following general elections saw him lose power after 27 years of one-man rule. The book also records the efforts that Chisembele made to bring some justice for the aging, neglected freedom fighters of Zambia when he attempted to obtain reparation from the British Government by taking a test case to the European Court of Human Rights whose ruling was that the incidents happened before the relevant Convention was in place, rendering the case inadmissible. An account is given of the events both political and personal up until the end of his life on February 5th 2006 and the aftermath.
