News correspondent Michael Nicholson went to Sarajevo to report on the horrors of the Bosnian War but ended up smuggling one little girl away from the carnage br br Natasha s Story is the heart wrenching account of how the TV reporter risked everything to bring a nine year old orphan home with him and gave her a new life miles from her native land br br The true story which went on to become the award winning film Welcome to Sarajevo is both an indictment of the horror and futility of the Bosnian War and a tribute to one girl s courage br br Brought up to date with brand new material and recent photographs Natasha s Story is released as an ebook for the first time to mark the year anniversary of her rescue from Sarajevo an event that made headlines around the world, This concise introductory text has been written for students beginning International Relations or requiring a brief but comprehensive overview It outlines key theories approaches and controversies and shows how they relate to the realities of the international system including such contemporary challenges like environmental degradation as well as the more traditional concerns of violence and war poverty and inequality The second edition has been revised and updated throughout with new chapters added on globalization and on post positivist theory, This book is both an exposition and a defence of a social scientific approach to conflict in international relations Professor Nicholson addresses two central questions To what extent can we usefully discuss behaviour in violent or potentially violent international conflict as rational How do we formulate and test theories in international relations so that we can rationally believe in them After outlining social scientific approaches to international relations the author describes the problems of rational decision making in conflict situations He shows how rationality is in many strategic situations hard to define and often leads to paradoxes such as the prisoners dilemma Psychological stress can further result in the distortion of decision processes in times of crisis Professor Nicholson pays particular attention to such distortions and also analyses how unconscious motivation relates to the rational choice framework In the following part the author explores rational beliefs about the international system He examines theories of arms races alliances and the international problems of ecology Here he is critical of the classical school of international relations for a lack of rigour in dealing with the problems of evidence and belief Finally he discusses the philosophy of science policy and ethics With its emphasis on social scientific approaches theory building and testing and above all its clarity and accessibility Rationality and the analysis of international conflict provides students with a key to understanding the complex field of conflict analysis This book will therefore be core reading for courses on international relations and it will also be read bystudents and specialists of political science and economics, b Love death and politics in a time of great famine and hardship in Ireland b br br This is a novel based on the true story of the Great Famine in Ireland of s Historically accurate it is a story of murder and betrayal of a failed rebellion and the love of a national scandal Charles Trevelyan was Secretary of the Treasury and Director of the Famine Relief Programme at a time when famine raged and antipathy in English politics towards the plight of those affected raged equally Kathryn Charles daughter likewise felt no sympathy until the very scale of the tragedy became apparent Joining the underground she preached insurrection stole food for the starving and became the lover of the leader of the rebellion She became known as Dark Rosaleen the heroine of banned nationalist poem was branded as both traitor and cause celebr This is her story
