Product Description
"This book makes an important contribution to the development of professional wargaming practise" Dr Peter Perla. Confrontation Analysis, also called dilemma analysis or drama theory, was originally devised by Professor Nigel Howard in 1997 as a way of modelling crises. Although used by Uk General Rupert Smith, the method fell into obscurity. After 10 years work in the defence sector, the method has been developed into a tool to model and help resolve international confrontations. This handbook aims to document the method and equip the reader to apply Confrontation Analysis as an operational analysis technique to structure through multi-party interactions such as negotiations. It is full of advice based on years of experience gained by applying the method in the professional arena. All the case studies in this book have been used for real training and research. This handbook is published by the History of Wargaming Project as part of its ongoing work to document current practise in wargaming.

Alone: The Thrive and Tragedy of John Curry by imusti
Product Description

Short-listed for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award.

One winter's night in 1976, millions of people all over the world watched John Curry skate to Olympic glory on an ice rink in Austria. Overnight he became one of the most famous men on the planet and changed ice-skating from marginal sport to high art. Surely, men's skating was supposed to be Cossack-muscular, not sensual and ambiguous like this. And yet the man was--and would always remain--an absolute mystery to a world that was dazzled by his gift.

Curry himself was an often-tortured man of labyrinthine complexity. For the first time, Alone untangles the extraordinary web of his toxic, troubled, brilliant--and short--life. It is a story of childhood nightmares, furious ambition, sporting genius, lifelong rivalries, homophobia, Cold War politics, financial ruin, and deep personal tragedy.

So much more than a run-of-the-mill sports biography, Alone reveals the restless, impatient, often-dark soul of a man whose words could lacerate, whose skating invariably moved audiences to tears, and who--after succumbing to AIDS, as so many of his fellow artists and friends--died of a heart attack at just forty-four years old.

Books

  • Public International Law

    2014. ISBN: 1552211398,9781552211397. 619 pages.

    In the wake of the calamitous events of September 11, 2001, public international law has endured some of the greatest tests of its history and emerged as one of the most resilient and potent tools available to human society in facing the unsettling global conditions of the early twenty-first century.The second edition of Public International Law provides a systematic introduction to the international legal system, including its key structural and institutional aspects as well as its core substantive topics. Analysis of all topics has been extensively revised and expanded since the first edition in order to reflect the many legal changes that have occurred since 2001. Several new discussions have also been introduced, considerably expanding the substantive coverage of the text. In particular, given the centrality of the topic to the functioning of the modern international legal system, an entirely new chapter on the use of force in international relations has been added.
