"Gaza is among the most densely populated places in the world. Two-thirds of its inhabitants are refugees, and more than half the population is under eighteen years of age. Since Israel occupied Gaza in 1967, it has systematically de-developed the economy. After Hamas won democratic elections in 2006, Israel intensified its blockade of Gaza, and after Hamas consolidated its control of the territory in 2007, Israel tightened its illegal siege another notch. In the meantime, Israel has launched no less than eight military operations against Gaza--culminating in Operation Cast Lead in 2008-9 and Operation Protective Edge in 2014--that left behind over three million tons of rubble. Recent UN reports predict that Gaza will be unlivable by 2020. Norman G. Finkelstein presents a meticulously researched and devastating inquest into Israel's actions of the last decade. He argues that although Israel justified its blockade and violent assaults in the name of self-defense, in fact these actions were cynical exercises of brutal power against an essentially defenseless civilian population. Based on hundreds of human rights reports, the book scrutinizes multifarious violations of international law Israel committed both during its operations and in the course of its decade-long siege of Gaza. It is a monument to Gaza's martyrs and a scorching accusation against their tormentors"--Provided by publisher.

6. Komt'ang [2018]

"가까운 미래에 시간 여행이 가능해진다. 하지만, 그 여행은 목숨을 걸어야 할 만큼 위험했다!몇 번의 쓰나미 이후 2063년의 부산은 안전한 윗동네와 언제 죽을지 모르는 아랫동네로 나뉜다. 어릴 때 기억이라곤 고아원 생활이 전부이며, 자라서는 식당 주방 보조로 살아가고 있는 우환에게 큰 금액을 보장하는 제안이 들어온다. ‘곰탕 맛을 배워와라.’ 시간 여행 상품이 개발되었지만, 살아서 돌아온 사람의 이야기는 듣지 못했기에, 죽을 만큼 위험한 일이었다. 하지만 우환은 목숨을 건 생애 첫 여행을 감행한다. 돈이 욕심나서가 아니었다. “이렇게 사나, 그렇게 죽으나” 다를 게 없는 인생이었기 때문이다. 그렇게 시작된 여행에서 우환은 타인들의 현재에 도달하게 된다. 우환의 도착 이후 2019년의 부산은 실체를 알 수 없는 살인 사건을 시작으로 공포에 휩싸이게 된다. “반전의 반전을 따라가며 마지막 문장까지 정신없이 읽고 나면, 한 인간이 가진 ‘그리움’이 어떤 일을 감행하게 하는지, 결국 사람을 움직이는 게 무엇인지를 다시금 생각하게 된다”는 이준익 감독의 말처럼, 김영탁 감독은 좀처럼 이해되지 않는 사람들의 행동을 추적하며, 『곰탕』 안에서 다양한 이야기를 우려내고 있다. 누구나 아는 것이 곰탕의 맛이지만, 그것이 단 하나의 맛은 아니듯, 이제 독자들은 범죄, 스릴러, 시간 여행이 배합된 가장 특별한 방식의 소설 『곰탕』의 맛을 누리게 될 것이다. ‘곰탕 맛의 비결을 알아내기 위해 시간 여행을 한다는 게 말이 되냐’는 생각으로 처음 몇 장을 읽었다. 그리고 딱 한 번 쉬고 끝까지 다 읽었다. 레이저 총을 들고, 멋진 불량 여고생이 운전하는 뿅카를 타고, 광안대교를 전속력으로 달리는 듯한 소설이다. 옆에서는 빌딩이 무너지고 있다. 우리는 소년 테러범을 쫓고, 그런 우리를 터프한 부산 형사 아저씨들이 쫓아온다. 그게 전부는 아니고 진한 곰탕 국물 맛도 있는데, 스포일러가 될 테니 더는 얘기 안 하련다. _ 장강명(소설가)" -- Provided by publisher.

From his leadership of the first modern lunch counter sit-ins at age twenty to his work on African American reparations at the time of his death at age seventy-two, Ronald W. Walters (1938-2010) was at the cutting edge of African American politics. A preeminent scholar, activist, and media commentator, he was founding chair of the Black Studies Department at Brandeis, where he shaped the epistemological parameters of the new discipline. Walters was an early strategist of congressional black power and a longtime advocate of a black presidential candidacy. His writings on the politics of race in America both predicted the constraints on President Obama in advancing African American interests and anticipated the emergence of the white nationalism found in the Tea Party and Donald Trump insurgency. In this fascinating book, Robert C. Smith combines history and biography to offer an overview of the last half century of black politics in America through the lends of the life and work of the man often described at the W.E.B. Du Bois of his time--back cover.

  • Small state's pursuit of autonomy, security and development in the Asia-Pacific region
  • Small state's autonomy, security, and development : a reinforcing logic
  • Southeast Asian states' cooperation in the context of US-China competition
  • Pursuit of economic development and Southeast Asian peace
  • US-China competition and Southeast Asian states' international political and strategic autonomy.
"In the last few decades, Southeast Asia has become generally more peaceful and more prosperous, with progress in economic development, regional cooperation and integration. ASEAN in particular plays a leading role within and beyond the region in promoting multilateral cooperation in both security and economic matters. All these developments progress amid increasing hegemonic competition between the US and China for regional dominance in the Asia-Pacific region. According to the realist viewpoint of international politics, Southeast Asian states can do nothing but choose sides at the expense of international political autonomy in order to maintain their national interests. Tang argues, however, that in fact there exists an opportunity for Southeast Asian states to simultaneously reinforce their military security, economic development and international political autonomy in face of the US-China hegemonic competition. Drawing on the ideas of power transition theory and recent works of capitalist peace, Tang argues that small states can exploit the competition between great powers to make economic gains and ensure security while maintaining their autonomy. He outlines the necessity of cooperation among these small states and of economic liberalization for the effectiveness of this reinforcing dynamics, applying policy and econometric analyses to a wide range of qualitative and quantitative data"-- Provided by publisher.
