BOOK EXCERPT:

Centres around four extended case studies in a trial court in Ahmedabad. These case studies show how the effects of power and knowledge congeal to disqualify women's (and children's) testimonies at different sites of state law such as the police station, the forensic science laboratory, the hospital and the court. Describes multiple ways in which public secrecy is subjected to specific revelations in rape trials that do not bring justice to a rape survivor but address and reinforce deeply entrenched phallocentric notions of justice. Brings sociological insights to the contested and anguishing issue of rape trials.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Informed by Critical Race Theory and based on a wide range of sources, including official sources, memoirs, and anthropological studies, this book examines multiple forms of racial discrimination in Jamaica and how they were talked about and experienced, from the end of the First World War until the demise of democratic socialism in the 1980. It also pays attention to practices devoid of racial content but which equally helped to sustain a society stratified by race and colour, such as voting qualifications. Case studies on, amongst others, the labour market, education, the family and legal system demonstrate the extent to which race and colour shaped social relations in the island in the decades preceding and following independence and argue that racial discrimination was a public secret - everybody knew it took place but few dared to openly discuss or criticise it. The book ends with an examination of race and colour in contemporary Jamaica to show that after independence race and colour have lost little of their power and offers some suggestions to overcome the silence on race to facilitate equality of opportunity for all.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this multi-million-copy New York Times bestseller is the definitive manual for anyone interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control – from the author of The Laws of Human Nature. In the book that People magazine proclaimed “beguiling” and “fascinating,” Robert Greene and Joost Elffers have distilled three thousand years of the history of power into 48 essential laws by drawing from the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, and Carl Von Clausewitz and also from the lives of figures ranging from Henry Kissinger to P.T. Barnum. Some laws teach the need for prudence (“Law 1: Never Outshine the Master”), others teach the value of confidence (“Law 28: Enter Action with Boldness”), and many recommend absolute self-preservation (“Law 15: Crush Your Enemy Totally”). Every law, though, has one thing in common: an interest in total domination. In a bold and arresting two-color package, The 48 Laws of Power is ideal whether your aim is conquest, self-defense, or simply to understand the rules of the game.

BOOK EXCERPT:

A major new work, a hybrid of history, journalism, and memoir, about the modern Freedom of Information Act – FOIA – and the horrifying, decades-old government misdeeds that it is unable to demystify, from one of America's most celebrated writers Eight years ago, while investigating the possibility that the United States had used biological weapons in the Korean War, Nicholson Baker requested a series of Air Force documents from the early 1950s under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act. Years went by, and he got no response. Rather than wait forever, Baker set out to keep a personal journal of what it feels like to try to write about major historical events in a world of pervasive redactions, witheld records, and glacially slow governmental responses. The result is one of the most original and daring works of nonfiction in recent memory, a singular and mesmerizing narrative that tunnels into the history of some of the darkest and most shameful plans and projects of the CIA, the Air Force, and the presidencies of Harry Truman and Dwight Eisenhower. In his lucid and unassuming style, Baker assembles what he learns, piece by piece, about Project Baseless, a crash Pentagon program begun in the early fifties that aimed to achieve "an Air Force-wide combat capability in biological and chemical warfare at the earliest possible date." Along the way, he unearths stories of balloons carrying crop disease, leaflet bombs filled with feathers, suicidal scientists, leaky centrifuges, paranoid political-warfare tacticians, insane experiments on animals and humans, weaponized ticks, ferocious propaganda battles with China, and cover and deception plans meant to trick the Kremlin into ramping up its germ-warfare program. At the same time, Baker tells the stories of the heroic journalists and lawyers who have devoted their energies to wresting documentary evidence from goverment repositories, and he shares anecdotes from his daily life in Maine feeding his dogs and watching the morning light gather on the horizon. The result is an astonishing and utterly disarming story about waiting, bureaucracy, the horrors of war, and, above all, the cruel secrets that the United States government seems determined to keep forever from its citizens.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This book is written in the style of the great Napoleon Hill. Think about this. With all of the success books out there, why don't we have more successful people? Too many success books simply rehash conventional wisdom. The truly great success books, such as Napoleon Hill's "Think and Grow Rich", instead enable life-challenging success breakthroughs because they identify and describe in powerful detail the thinking patterns and principles of the world's most successful individuals. The only way to do this is to study the world's most successful individuals, as Napoleon Hill has done. And as I have done as well. For over two decades, I have devoted myself to studying and interviewing the most successful individuals across varying fields so that I could see and learn for myself the principles which sets them apart in terms of their success. And that is what I share with you here. Get ready to throw out many of the things that you thought you knew about success. Let's start at the beginning with a simple truth. Success is hard. Very Hard. Very very very hard. We all know that, once we have had a little bit of experience and are honest with ourselves. We all want to be more successful, but let's face it, sometimes we just don't know how. It's because, as they say, "We don't know what we don't know." So we make the same mistakes over and over again(often without fully realizing it until later). And then we blame ourselves(or others) in regard to why things didn't turn out as we had hoped, or planned. It's this simple. If you want to increase your level of success, read this book. We all go through the same struggles. This book-simply but powerfully - is your instruction manual on how to overcome them. Read this book and in 60 days you won't even recognize the person you used to be. And neither will your family and friends. This is the type of change that allows you to get the things you really want in life. The things previously outside your reach. The things you saw others gain and achieve, but never seemed to be able to get for yourself. That can change today. We all know that a few better ideas can accelerate one's success substantially. Successful people take their better ideas and know how to leverage them further - and execute them better than other people do. Once you understand the processes that successful people utilize to do this, you can very quickly ramp up your own success as well. Everybody struggles. Successful people struggle just like unsuccessful people but they learn and use the success principles to overcome the difficulties in their lives to reach their goals. Success breeds confidence, making it easier overtime. If you don't want to keep making the same mistakes over and over again, you need to understand and understand well what these success principles are. That is what this book provides to you.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Richard Norton-Taylor reveals the secrets of his forty-year career as a journalist covering the world of spies and their masters in Whitehall. Early in his career, Norton-Taylor successfully campaigned against official secrecy, gaining a reputation inside the Whitehall establishment and the outside world alike for his relentless determination to expose wrongdoing and incompetence. His special targets have always been the security and intelligence agencies and the Ministry of Defence, institutions that often hide behind the cloak of national security to protect themselves from embarrassment and being held to account. Encouraged by his trusted contacts in intelligence agencies and Whitehall departments, Norton-Taylor was among the first of the few journalists consistently to attack the planned invasion of Iraq in 2003 and subsequently covered for the Guardian the devastating evidence of every witness to the Chilcot inquiry. He also enjoyed unique access to a wide array of defence sources, giving him a rare insight into the disputes among top military commanders as they struggled to fight wars in Iraq and Afghanistan with under-resourced and ill-equipped troops. Described by a former senior Intelligence official as a 'long-term thorn in the side of the intelligence establishment', and winner of numerous awards for his journalism, Norton-Taylor is one of the most respected defence and security journalists of his generation. Provocative, and rich in anecdotes, The State of Secrecy is an illuminating, critical and, at times, provocative account of the author's experiences investigating the secret world.
