Josh Duhamel, Bruce Willis and Rosario Dawson star in this action crime drama about a fireman forced to go into witness protection.

Regime Support Beyond the Balance Sheet - Participation and Policy Performance in Latin America (Hardcover): Matthew Rhodes... Regime Support Beyond the Balance Sheet - Participation and Policy Performance in Latin America (Hardcover)

This book challenges the conventional wisdom that policy performance is the most important determinant of regime support. It does so by focusing on two countries where performance and support do not match. Chile is the economic envy of every country in Latin America, yet support has been surprisingly anemic. By contrast, Venezuela managed to maintain extremely high levels of support during the reign of Hugo Chavez despite severe failures of governance. Resolution of these paradoxes requires turning away from policy decisions and focusing instead on how those decisions are made. Taking inspiration from democratic theory and social psychology, this book argues that extensive opportunities for direct participation in the political process engenders in citizens strong feelings of efficacy - a sense of control over the course of politics. Rhodes-Purdy uses a mixed-methods approach to test this theory, including qualitative case studies, analysis of survey data, and experimental methods.

In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis Germany became Europe's most influential nation state. This book aims to provide a comparative assessment of how this is reflected in the country's bilateral security relationships with key global and regional partners. Prepared by an international team of scholars, it will offer unique, in-depth perspectives on the ways these evolving interactions affect the prospects for addressing recent and emerging security challenges. The fact of Germany's (re-)emergence as Europe's leading state is now undisputed, even if the implications are not. The post-2008 financial crisis, heightened conflict along Europe's eastern and southern fringes since 2014, and the populist political wave across the West have all driven stronger German engagement in international affairs. While German policy seeks to exercise "leadership from the middle" via multilateral frameworks such as the United Nations, NATO, and the European Union, this entails major adjustments in interactions with other states. Indeed, the future of the security order built on these institutions now hinges on the quality of Germany's key bilateral ties. With such stakes in mind, this volume offers a comparative assessment of the background, status, and prospects of a selection of the most significant cases. These investigations cover Germany's relationships with the US, Russia, UK, France and China as well as with Poland and the Balkans. The volume concludes that, though active German leadership is more necessary than ever, it remains insufficient for European or broader international security. Germany and its new partners must aim for a balanced model of cooperation that responds to both the internal and external challenges of the early twenty-first century.

Bathing Strictly Prohibited is a collection of poems inspired by the middle years of the eclectic life of a British entrepreneur. The voice that comes through is coloured by a consistent love of history, humanity, and nature. Some days a meeting might feel like the last stand of the Saxons against the Norman conquest; on others the challenges of the day may pale into insignificance compared to the beauty of an autumn sunset. There is something in these poems for everyone who sets out to achieve or change something, especially while juggling aspiration with commitment to family and love of the world around them.
