The Historical Destiny of the United States: The Mystery of the American Money

Emmet Fox

The Historical Destiny of the United States: The Mystery of the American Money by Emmet FoxIn order to understand the special work which the United States has been called upon to do in the history of Humanity, we have first to remember that the American people are, historically, that section of the people of Europe whose task it was to explore the continent of America, to subdue it and to develop it. It is impossible to understand the historical significance and importance of any country as long as we consider that country only by itself. In order to determine its true place in the scheme of things we have to consider its connection with the general stream of historical tendencies....

Drug Trafficking and International Security

Paul Rexton Kan

Drug Trafficking and International Security by Paul Rexton KanEach chapter examines how drug trafficking affects a particular security issue, such as rogue nations, weak and failing states, protracted intrastate conflicts, terrorism, transnational crime, public health, and cyber security. While some texts see drug trafficking as an international threat in itself, others place it under the topic of transnational organized crime, arguing that the threats emanate from criminal groups. This book, on the other hand, provides a thorough understanding of how vast array of threats to international security are exacerbated by drug trafficking.

women's strategic decisions to accept downwardly mobile positions in order to
earn more income, thereby achieving greater agency in their home...
