BOOK EXCERPT:

Coward. It's a grave insult, likely to provoke anger, shame, even violence. But what exactly is cowardice? When terrorists are called cowards, does it mean the same as when the term is applied to soldiers? And what, if anything, does cowardice have to do with the rest of us? Bringing together sources from court-martial cases to literary and film classics such as Dante's Inferno, The Red Badge of Courage, and The Thin Red Line, Cowardice recounts the great harm that both cowards and the fear of seeming cowardly have done, and traces the idea of cowardice’s power to its evolutionary roots. But Chris Walsh also shows that this power has faded, most dramatically on the battlefield. Misconduct that earlier might have been punished as cowardice has more recently often been treated medically, as an adverse reaction to trauma, and Walsh explores a parallel therapeutic shift that reaches beyond war, into the realms of politics, crime, philosophy, religion, and love. Yet, as Walsh indicates, the therapeutic has not altogether triumphed—contempt for cowardice endures, and he argues that such contempt can be a good thing. Courage attracts much more of our attention, but rigorously understanding cowardice may be more morally useful, for it requires us to think critically about our duties and our fears, and it helps us to act ethically when fear and duty conflict. Richly illustrated and filled with fascinating stories and insights, Cowardice is the first sustained analysis of a neglected but profound and pervasive feature of human experience.

BOOK EXCERPT:

As a Cavalry Scout Section Sergeant, author Delbert Abbott couldn't understand why he felt troubled and upset about his part in Desert Shield/Desert Storm. He had taken part in the most decisive war in recent history, a ground war that he and those who served with him had won in only one hundred hours. Yet, for years he struggled to make his part of the war make sense. It was only during this most recent campaign, Operation Iraqi Freedom, that he understood why he was so conflicted. This book tells the personal story of a Cavalry Scout Section Sergeant whose unit, 4/8 Cavalry, went from becoming deactivated to becoming a pivotal part of the victory of Desert Storm. Reading this book you will feel the sand blowing in your face, the heat radiating from the desert, and the apprehension in a young soldiers heart. This inside look at his life during this conflict will make you laugh, make you cry, and make you wish you had been a part of it.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The Cuban migration to the United States that began as a trickle in 1959, with the seizure of power by Fidel Castro and his guerrilla insurgents, and later was to become a flood tide of people exceeding one million, brought to the United States a unique cultural as well as political configuration. "The Conscience of Worms and the Cowardice of Lions "seeks to explore that special relationship. The phrase "conscience of worms" has a double derivation: from Castro's critique of ideological opponents and exiles as "gusanos "and from the quite opposite Spanish-language tradition of "gusanos de conciencia"--those tiny worms that burrow beneath the surface for truth. The "cowardice of lions" is more straightforward--referring to those North Americans who roared in favor of Castro only to- lapse into a protracted silence when the excesses of the communist regime became evident. This volume was delivered by Irving Louis Horowitz as the Bacardi Lecture Series at the University of Miami, North-South Center in 1992. The lectures cover a gamut of issues ranging from paradox, procrastination, and paralysis of United States foreign policy; thirty-plus years of apologetics by a select group of North American social scientists and journalists; the absorption of honest social research by the Cuban-American community; to a summing up of what has been learned from the Revolution and its impact on social and political theory. Throughout, Horowitz shows that the major theories about the Castro Revolution have had substantial consequences--both in the United States and in Cuba--on how Marxism and communism are assessed in general. The survival of the Castro government, long after the upheavals that eliminated totalitarian regimes in Russia and Eastern Europe, is itself a topic covered in this probing volume, written by a long-standing analyst of Cuban affairs and social science alike.
