Awakening Giants, Feet of Clay Book Review:

The recent economic rise of China and India has attracted a great deal of attention. Yet, many of the views regarding their market reforms and high growth have been tendentious, exaggerated, or oversimplified. Awakening Giants, Feet of Clay scrutinizes the phenomenal rise of both nations and demolishes the myths that have accumulated around the economic achievements of these two giants in the last quarter-century. Exploring the challenges that both countries must overcome to become true leaders in the international economy, Pranab Bardhan looks beyond short-run macroeconomic issues to examine structures, and current general performance. Full of valuable insights, Awakening Giants, Feet of Clay provides a nuanced picture of China and India's complex political economy at a time of startling global reconfiguration and change.

The Giant with Feet of Clay Book Review:

In this incisive work, a Swiss educator, linguist and researcher unsparingly dissects the standard "mainstream" work of Holocaust history -- Raul Hilberg¿s three-volume Destruction of the European Jews. Graf¿s overview - with source notes and index -- effectively contrasts "orthodox" and "revisionist" scholarship on the emotion-laden "Holocaust" issue. The author, who was driven into political exile for writings such as this one, tackles such thorny issues as the fate of the masses of deported Jews, the role of the special Einsatzgruppen commando units in the occupied Soviet territories, the "gas chamber" evidence, and much more. Effective as an introduction to the revisionist view.

Feet of Clay Book Review:

In the early 1950s, a Mexican American man named Gus has become a top Texas civil rights attorney--a climb that has been bedeviled by his competing obsessions with the law, la raza, the ladies, and Chivas Regal whisky. On the day he learns his failed marriage has rendered him homeless, Gus hastily takes on a new client, a man accused of shooting and killing a man outside a bar in Edna. The case becomes one about equal representation when his associates uncover a disturbing fact: no minority or person of color has sat on a Jackson County jury in at least twenty-five years. Without funds, without political support, Gus and his team courageously pursue a demanding course that forces them to battle the system at every turn. The case and Gus himself are targeted by Symmetry, an elitist, ultraconservative secret society bankrolled by Texas oil barons. A representation of the many extant southern white supremacist groups of the day, the group engages Gus's longtime nemesis to stop the progression of the case using schemes of persuasion and bribery. Gus finds occasional solace when he begins a relationship with the world's first female bullfighter, but his unresolved past threatens his well-being. The story also introduces a young Mexican American girl who learns the complications of being shades darker than her sister and struggles to find her voice.

Dragon's Claws With Feet of Clay Book Review:

China often dominates the headlines in negative ways with carrier killing missiles, drone swarms, militarizing islands and new jet fighters. These fearful perceptions and click bait titles are often published without providing basics or background about geography, how to assess weapons, or the doctrine of Chinese and American forces. Dragon's Claws with Feet of Clay: A Primer on Modern Chinese Strategy overcomes those limitations. Using an intimate knowledge of Chinese history and military theory as well as current events, doctrine, and hardware being developed, military historian Morgan Deane explains foundational concepts such as technical capabilities and likely use for major weapon systems, the relationship between history and geography in East Asia, a discussion on likely Chinese strategy and implementation of Sun-Tzu's theories, and assessment of US counter measures, as well as the training of both US and Chinese forces. During a time of continued international tension this book is vital for developing a reasoned assessment of potential dangers and counter measures, most importantly the reader will be able to see through the scare mongering rhetoric of policy makers and politicians to offer their own measured opinion of current events.
