Maps. 8vo, illustrated purple card covers. "In early 1812, as the British and the Americans were on the brink of war in North America, Fort St. Joseph was not thought to be of much importance to the British cause. It was disregarded as a useless, poorly located post. But when war was declared, the garrison at Fort St. Joseph pulled off a miracle : it captured the American Fort Mackinac, and for the remainder of the War of 1812 the British never relinquished control of the Upper Great Lakes. Built in the aftermath of the American Revolution, Fort St. Joseph played an importantrole in the defence of Canada. And yet, when the war ended, the fort was a bandoned, and almost forgotten" -- from rear cover.

ABOUL-ENEIN, Youssef and Basil ABOUL-ENEIN. The Secret War for the Middle East : The Influence of Axis and Allied Intelligence Operations during WorldWar II. Annapolis, Maryland : Naval Institute Press, (2013). First Printin g. Pp. (6),vii-xxiii,(1),1-263,(1). 8vo, red paper-covered spine with off-white patterned paper-covered boards, silver lettering to spine. Foreword byEd Mornston. "Although often overlooked in studies of World War II, the Mi ddle East was actually a key theater for the Allies. Though the threat of direct Axis invasion by Rommel's Afrika Corps never materialized beyond the Egyptian Western Desert, this did not limit the Axis from probing the Middle East and cultivating potential collaborators and sympathizers. 'The Secret War for the Middle East' explores the infusion of the political language of anti-Semitism, nationalism, fascism, and Marxism that was among the ideological by-products of Axis and Allied intervention in the Arab world. The status of the British-dominated Middle East was tailor-made for exploitation by Axis intelligence and propaganda. German and Italian intelligence efforts fueled anti-British resentments; their influence shaped the course of Arab nationalist sentiments throughout the Middle East. These actions left an indelible mark on the sociopolitical evolution of the modern states of the Middle East, and their effects continue to be felt today. A relevant parallel to the pan-Arab cause was Hitler's attempt to bring ethnic Germans into the fold of a greater German state. In theory, as the Sudeten German stood on par with the Carpathian German, so, too, according to doctrinal theory, did the Yemeni stand in union with the Syrian in the imagination of thoseespousing pan-Arabism. As historic evidence demonstrates, this very common ality proved to be a major factor in the development of relations between Arab and fascist leaders. The Arab nationalist movement amounted to little more than a shapeless, fragmented counter-position to British imperialism, imported to the Arab East via Berlin for Nazi aspirations." - from the dustjacket.

In what ways does this dependence i nfluence the conditions, forms, and outcomes of colective action in those small countries, including the occurrence of revolutions and the institutionalization of political systems? To answer these questions, Risto Alapuro focuses on the experience of Finland. He provides an insightful political, economic, and social history of the country since 1809. Then, using two key events - the first parliamentary elections with universal suffrage in 1907 andthe abortive revolution in 1917-1918 - he analyzes the unique factors that govern politics in a small, dependent country. Although Alapuro points to the distinctiveness of the Finnish case, he also raises questions that willopen a whole new realm of inquiry in the study of relations among small an d large countries."

"This is the story of American maritime relations with South, East, and West Africa, where the unexpected has suddenly become the order of the day. It is there that the trade of the United States has increased at a faster rate during the past four decades than anywhere else in the world. In this book, intertwined with the broad aspects of African trade and national shipping policy, is the specific achievement of the Farrell shipping service in helping link them together. [...] Having visited the coasts of Africa all the way from Cape Town to Zanzibar and from the Canaries and the Guinea Coast to the Congo, [Albion] gives a colorful picture of all sorts of ports of call and exotic cargoes in the amazingcontrasts of Africa today. There is much about the ships, of course, and l ong sea run down the South Atlantic and into the gales ofthe Indian Ocean; but also about the actual workings of a steamship line -- a mystery to mostof us. We hear of the captains and crews, the stevedores and longshoremen, the agents and overseas representatives, and the New York headquarters all the way up to the two Farrell brothers." - from the dj.

Pp (12),[xi]-xiv,1-573,(3). Index. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "This is the first full-length study in English of the career of one of France's most controversial military leaders, General Maurice Gamelin (1872-1958). Gamelin was reviled by many of his contemporaries and denigrated by historians as 'the man who lost the Battle of France'. Here Gamelin is re-appraised in the context of the unstable civil-military relations and national decline of the years 1933-40. Basing his account on hitherto inaccessible primary sources and on public and private archives. The evidence reviewed, including Gamelin's private headquarters' diary, provides the basis for a revision of the earlier hostile portraits of the general. The author argues that less attention should be paid to the campaign in France in 1940, by which time Gamelin's role was that of co-ordinator and adviser. Rather, he suggests that great credit is due to Gamelin for his success in holding together the pre-war civil-military consensus, and for re-arming France by 1939." Contents : Introduction : Maurice Gamelin,the defence of France and the decline of the Third Republic. 1. The making of a republican general; 2. Gamelin and the rebirth of German power; 3.

Volume 27 in the Norwegian Forei gn Policy Studies series. "Norway is the only one of the four applicants of1970 which rejected EEC membership by a popular referendum. The decision w ill have far-reaching consequences both for Norway and the EEC. This book is an attempt to understand that decision of 1972 and to examine its effectson Norwegian-EEC relations in the following five years. The first part cov ers the period up to September 1972. Beginning with a description of the Norwegian economy, politics and foreign policy in 1969, it analyses post-war Norwegian attitudes towards Europe and European integration and the way theNordek debate of 1968-70 already revealed many of the themes and political positions of the subsequent referendum campaign. It then charts the intera cting course of domestic politics, membership negotiations and referendum campaign. [...] Part two covers the years 1972-77, its chapters describing in turn how the immediate post-referendum years of fast rising living standards and oil exploitation cushioned Norwegians economicall and psychologically from the full effects of their decision; how the Labour and Conservativeparties, defeated over the EEC, went on to win the post-referendum struggl e for control of the Political system; Norway';s relations with the EEC in fisheries questions, the main source of friction in these years; and the reasons why Labour's 'active European policy' failed to live up to its name."- from the rear cover.

ALLEN, Robert S. His Majesty's Indian Allies : British Indian Policy in TheDefence of Canada, 1774-1815. Toronto & Oxford : Dundurn Press, 1992. Firs t Paperback Printing. Pp. (6),7-294,(2), including plates. Illustrated. 8vo, art illustrated green card covers with white lettering to front cover andspine. "Today the First Nations are demanding a new recognition of their p lace in Canada. For them this demand is a renewal of the historical relationship between themselves and the European newcomers, based on mutual respect and a separate but equal status in which neither side would interfere wihthe integrity of the other's culture, language, law, or religious and poli tical systems. 'His Majesty's Indian Allies' is a study of the roots of this relationship and an examination of British Indian policy in North Americafrom the time of the American Revolution to the end of the War of 1812, wi th particular focus on Canada. Remarkably little recognition has been givenot the vital military role of native people in the defence of Canada. More precisely, the long relationship between native people and thje crown in C anada, based on formal alliances, was instrumental in preserving and protecting the integrity of the territories that became Canada. The cohesive vehicle for implementing policy directives was the British Indian Department, the forerunner of the present Department of Indian and Northern Affairs Canada. Although plagued by a continuous struggle over land issues and native sovereignty, an enduring and symbiotic relationship evolved between the native people and the British Crown in Canada that was rooted in the mutual need and desire for protection and survival. In his conclusion, Allen argues that the historic chain of friendship between native people and the crown has been recast, but not particularly altered, in the contemporary world of government-native relations. In detailing and assessing these military alliances during the formative and critical years in the development of the nations in North America, Robert Allen has brought refreshing new insights intothe field of native history." - from rear.

In the laboratory of modern history, Carl Amery tests the hypothesis of collusion and corruption in the relations between the RomanCatholic Church and the government of post-Nazi Germany. The principals in the affair are scrutinized closely, their words are cited at length, their acts are weighed in the balance of Christian ethics, and in the end Church and Churchmen are found wanting. The initial assumption of the experiment is proved valid: the institutional Church cravenly subjected itself to the powers of this world.” (from the dj). Contents : Foreword by Professor J. M.

ANDREW, Arthur. Defence by Other Means : diplomacy for the underdog. (Toronto) : Canadian Institute of International Affairs, (1970). Pp [i]-ix,(3),[1]-126,(6). 8vo, blue card covers. “Most of the established writers on diplomacy have done their work from the viewpoint of the great power, the leaderin world affairs. This book is a look at the substantially different diplo macy practised by smaller countries whose concern is first to survive and then to thrive in a world largely ordered by the great powers.

(7),[viii]-x,(2),3-273,(1). Map endpapers. 8vo, tan cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "The nine Arab states of the Lower Gulf -- Bahrayn, Qatar and the seven member states of the United Arab Amirates -- were catapulted onto the international scene shortly after they received their full independence from Great Britain in 1971. The global energy situation ensures that they will continue to engage the attention of the outside world for some time to come. The majority of these states are oil producers, and they include some of the world's wealthiest societies in terms of income per capita; they also include some of the poorest. The problems and opportunities presented by these circumstances offer uniquechallenges to the governments and peoples of these states. This study, bas ed on extensive field research by the author, examines these traditional societies in terms of the ongoing impact of petroleum and the changes it is bringing to their political and socio-economic systems." - from the dustjacket.
