New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 1992. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 1992. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 506 pages. The author's second novel. Now considered a contemporary classic. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Mona Simpson's "The Lost Father". A dark sequel to her luminous debut novel, "Anywhere But Here". In her highly acclaimed first novel, Mona Simpson created one of the most astute yet vulnerable heroines in contemporary fiction, Mayan Atassi, formerly Mayan Stevenson. Simpson returns with a powerful novel about love and loveless-ness, fathers and fatherless-ness, and the loyalties that shape us even when they threaten to destroy us. "A breathtaking piece of fiction. Simpson is a writer who can break our heart and mend it in the same sentence" (The Cleveland Plain Dealer). While she has strenuously denied it, there is no question that both novels (and a third one) are autobiographical, that this fact is relevant to her fiction, and that "The Lost Father" mirrors the estranged relationship Mona Simpson has had with Abdulfattah John Jandali, the Syrian-born father who abandoned her and her mother. The latter and Simpson's mother, Joanne Carole Schieble, were graduate students when she became pregnant with their first child. Schieble's father threatened to disown her if she married a Syrian so she gave her son up for adoption. Her father died shortly thereafter, and the couple were finally able to marry. The son they gave up for adoption was Steve Jobs, the legendary founder of Apple. Mona Simpson and Steve Jobs, who are biological siblings, eventually found out about each other, and became close as adults, close enough for her to write "A Regular Guy" (1996), which is closely (according to some commentators) or loosely (according to others) based on the Steve Jobs she came to know very well. Prodigious talent was obviously in the siblings' genes. What is even more startling is how different their talents were, as if determined by yet another genetic factor: Gender. One was scientific/technological/masculine, the other, the exact opposite, artistic/literary/feminine. It is precisely this "wired" pre-determinism that a self-created writer like Simpson instinctively rejects even though genetics is an undeniable part of the truth about our lives. An absolute "must-have" title for Mona Simpson collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in red fountain pen on the title page by Mona Simpson. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Simpson's signature on this copy is one of the most beautiful we have ever seen: Clean, flowing, and elegant.

Dimensions: 8.3in. x 5.8in. x 0.5in.As virtually every aspect of society becomes increasingly dependent on information and communications technology, so our vulnerability to attacks on this technology increases. This is a major theme of this collection of leading edge research papers. At the same time there is another side to this issue, which is if the technology can be used against society by the purveyors of malware etc. , then technology may also be used positively in the pursuit of societys objectives. Specific topics in the collection include Cryptography and Steganography, Cyber Antagonism, Information Sharing Between Government and Industry as a Weapon, Terrorist Use of the Internet, War and Ethics in Cyberspace to name just a few. The papers in this book take a wide ranging look at the more important issues surrounding the use of information and communication technology as it applies to the security of vital systems that can have a major impact on the functionality of our society. This book includes leading contributions to research in this field from 9 different countries and an introduction to the subject by Professor Julie Ryan from George Washington University in the USA.

First Edition, Ex-Library book with slight wear on dustjacket, a few library stamps, no markings in text. From Publishers Weekly: A founding dean of Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government, Allison applies a long, distinguished career in government and academia to this sobering--indeed frightening--presentation of U.S. vulnerability to a terrorist nuclear attack. While he begins by asserting such an attack is preventable, the balance of his text is anything but reassuring. Allison begins by describing the broad spectrum of groups who could intend a nuclear strike against the U.S. They range from an al-Qaeda with its own Manhattan Project to small and determined doomsday cults. Their tools can include a broad spectrum of weapons, either stolen or homemade from raw materials increasingly available worldwide. Once terrorists acquire a nuclear bomb, Allison argues, its delivery to an American target may be almost impossible to stop under current security measures. The Bush administration, correct in waging war against nuclear terrorism, has not, he says, yet developed a comprehensive counter strategy. Arguing that the only way to eliminate nuclear terrorism's threat is to lock down the weapons at the source, Allison recommends nothing less than a new international order based on no insecure nuclear material, no new facilities for processing uranium or enriching plutonium and no new nuclear states. Those policies, Allison believes, do not stretch beyond the achievable, if pursued by a combination of quid pro quos and intimidation in an international context of negotiation and a U.S. foreign policy he describes as """"humble."""" A humble policy in turn will facilitate building a world alliance against nuclear terrorism and acquiring the intelligence necessary for success against prospective nuclear terrorists. It will also require time, money and effort. Like the Cold War, the war on nuclear terrorism will probably be a long struggle in the twilight. But no student of the fact, Allison asserts, doubts that another major terrorist attack is in the offing. """"We do not have the luxury,"""" he declares, """"of hoping the beast will simply go away."""" Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. """"From Bookmarks Magazine: Chemical weapons can kill in the thousands. Over the same area, a football-sized nuclear packet could kill half a million. With Iran and North Korea joining the fray, Russia's massive supplies, and Pakistan's black market, we're in Big Trouble. Allison, who served under the first Clinton administration, models his argument on the successful Nunn-Lugar Cooperative Threat Reduction Program he helped implement when the Soviet Union collapsed. Nuclear Terrorism, well-written, lucid, and above all horrifying, offers a blueprint for preventing nuclear terrorism. Reviewers generally agree with Allison's points, but ask how he would implement his goals in politically diverse climates. How does one conduct nuclear power plant inspections with corrupt officials, for example: Allison himself admits that his plan will take a """"""""long, hard, slog""""""""-one that seems necessary. Copyright 2004 Phillips & Nelson Media, Inc."""", Times Books, 9-Aug-04

Nuclear Terrorism: The Ultimate Preventable Catastrophe - gebunden oder broschiert

2004, ISBN: 9780805076516

ID: 921722998

New York: Times Books, Henry Holt and Company, 2004. First Edition [Stated], First Printing [Stated]. Hardcover. Very good/Very good. [8], 263, [1] pages. Illustrations. Notes. Index. DJ has slight wear, soiling Ink notation on fep. Graham Tillett Allison, Jr. (born 23 March 1940) is an American political scientist and professor at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard. He is renowned for his contribution in the late 1960s and early 1970s to the bureaucratic analysis of decision making, especially during times of crisis. His book Remaking Foreign Policy: The Organizational Connection, co-written with Peter Szanton, was published in 1976 and had some influence on the foreign policy of the administration of President Jimmy Carter which took office in early 1977. Since the 1970s, Allison has also been a leading analyst of U.S. national security and defense policy, with a special interest in nuclear weapons and terrorism. Allison has been heavily involved in U.S. defense policy since working as an advisor and consultant to the Pentagon in the 1960s. He has been a member of the Secretary of Defense's Defense Policy Board from 1985. He was a special advisor to the Secretary of Defense (1985-87) and the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Policy and Plans (1993-1994), where he coordinated strategy and policy towards the states of the former Soviet Union. President Bill Clinton awarded Allison the Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service, for "reshaping relations with Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, and Kazakhstan to reduce the former Soviet nuclear arsenal." Nuclear Terrorism: The Ultimate Preventable Catastrophe is a 2004 book by Harvard scholar Graham Allison. Allison explains that terrorists have been striving to acquire and then use nuclear weapons against the United States. During the 2004 U.S. Presidential election, President George W. Bush and Senator John Kerry featured the issue of terrorism in their foreign policy platforms, and both said it is the nation's foremost security challenge. Nuclear Terrorism is described as a well-written report for general readers on the terrorist threat and what is needed to reduce it. National security expert Graham Allison identifies the serious threat to the world posed by the availability of nuclear weapons and materials, and suggests ways that may make the possibility of their falling into terrorists' hands far less likely. He identifies the key danger points (notably the former Soviet Union) that need to be secured, tells what policy changes need to occur, and argues that stronger treaties and stricter enforcement are essential to making this happen. Allison explains how the energy needs and peaceful use of nuclear power can be balanced with international safeguards, and he argues for a much heavier investment in homeland defense. All require a commitment of resources, especially money. Yet the danger of not acting may, in his view, change the status of nuclear terrorism from preventable to inevitable.
