History at the end of the world? history, climate change and the possibility of closure by Mark Levene ( )
7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This collection of essays proposes that climate change means serious peril. Our argument, however, is not about the science per se. It is about us, our deep and more recent history, and how we arrived at this calamitous impasse. With contributions from academic activists and independent researchers, History at the End of the World challenges advocates of 'business as usual' to think again. But in its wide-ranging assessment of how we transcend the current crisis, it also proposes that the human past could be our most powerful resource in the struggle for survival. Our approaches begin from archaeology, literature, religion, psychology, sociology, philosophy of science, engineering and sustainable development, as well as 'straight' history

A region in turmoil : South Asian conflicts since 1947 by Robert Johnson ( Book )
6 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Since the Second World War, the states of South Asia have been engulfed in a variety of conflicts. These include the Tamil Tigers' struggles in Sri Lanka, the unrest in Myanmar (Burma), Maoist insurgency in Nepal, the Bangladeshi war of independence, the gruelling conflicts in Kashmir and Afghanistan, and the 'War on Terror'." "To date, few attempts have been made to examine these conflicts in their regional and global context. Rob Johnson fills in the gaps, and explains and evaluates the historic and political roots of these wars in a systematic and thematic way. The subject is vitally important, not least because the two leading states, India and Pakistan, are nuclear powers that have resorted to war with each other on a number of occasions since independence. In addition, the insurgencies of the last 50 years continue to destabilize the region, and now they seriously affect the rest of the world. Highly topical, A Region in Turmoil provides an invaluable analysis of South Asia and its complex history. It is essential reading not only for historians and policymakers, but for anyone who follows current affairs."--BOOK JACKET
Oil, Islam and conflict : Central Asia since 1945 by Robert Johnson ( Book )
7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Oil, Islam Conflict is a timely regional perspective that gathers together and analyzes a range of issues, including terrorism, counter-insurgency and energy security. It covers the civil Wars in Afghanistan and Tajikstan, the conflicts in Chechnya and the Caucasus, and terrorism across the region. Rob Johnson also examines the policies of Central Asian governments, including their attitudes to democratic reform, human rights, energy and economic development, and how these are related to civil violence. Further consideration is given to Islamist movements and their impact on the peoples of Central Asia, as well as the unrest in China's Xinjiang province." "Required reading for policy planners and researchers, oil and gas companies, military personnel and others involved in energy security and combating terrorism, Oil, Islam and Conflict will also attract general readers with an interest in this increasingly turbulent region."--Jacket

The Afghan way of war : how and why they fight by Robert Johnson ( Book )
7 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Focusing on key episodes in Afghanistan's long history of conflict with foreign forces ranging from the many nineteenth century to the present, this book sheds new light on the Afghan 'Way of War.' Robert Johnson shows that, contrary to the stereotypes of primitive warriors enflamed with religious fanaticism, Afghan warfare has been marked by constant change as Afghani methods evolved to face new threats. From the dynastic struggles and popular resistance movements of the nineteenth century to the ideological confrontations of recent decades, Afghans have long resisted political coercion, military intervention, and foreign influence. To do so, they have developed sophisticated strategic approaches to deal with both internal unrest and foreign intrusion, while at the tactical level outthinking and outfighting their opponents at every step. The final part of the book, which deals with how the Taliban has contested Western intervention by borrowing from traditions in Afghan history and culture, will be of considerable topical interest in light of the ongoing conflict in Afghanistan"--Publisher description

How to win on the battlefield : the 25 key tactics of all time by Robert Johnson ( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this book we examine and then analyse, through a series of case studies, 25 of the most important tactics used in war on land, at sea and in the air. These are illustrated with examples from around the globe and from across history in order to demonstrate the enduring value of each one. While much of the current intellectual debate on war focuses on what is new, or even 'post-modern', we are eager to show that, despite obvious changes in weaponry, technology and mobility, certain key techniques and principles have been applied with equal success in the military encounters of the past and are still relevant today. Since so many works of military history focus narrowly on the West, we have selected examples from as wide a field as possible and we have tried to raise awareness of some less well-known battles. Our intention is to highlight the function of each tactical concept in its historical setting"--Preface
