  • The Right to National Self-Defence • Arena Books
    The book begins with a careful in depth analysis of Cyberwarfare s special features such as stealth speed untraceability the availability to State as well as Non State sponsored agents the defiance of traditional borders and the resulting unprecedented potential for destruction All of this is shown as typical of modern methods of warfare The ultimate aim is to demonstrate that we have exceeded the boundaries of traditional legal thinking based on the concept of regulating types of forcible action traditionally available to the State About The Book This ambitious work which took the better part of a decade to produce will be essential reading for all serious defence study students and of absorbing interest to military professionals and lay people concerned with the future of warfare and all aspects of response to military attack Its ultimate aim is to demonstrate that the advent of Cyberwarfare has pushed traditional legal thinking regarding the regulation of forcible action beyond traditional boundaries It attempts to do so by critically analyzing specific characteristics which are inherent to Cyberwarfare such as stealth speed untraceability the availability to State as well as Non State sponsored agents their defiance of traditional borders and an unprecedented potential for destruction all of which have played a major role in making obsolescent traditional legal norms relied upon for the effective regulation of the use of force It follows from the above that no defence system can be effectively regulated especially one as new and unconventional as Information Warfare unless all its specific aspects are explored as deeply as possible The best means to achieve such a purpose have been deemed to be through the inclusion as well as the careful analysis of as many real life examples of Information Warfare operations as possible in order to illustrate the special

    gone wrong since those heady days when Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive And to be young was very heaven The democracies we inherit today seem hardly to merit the name when great unaccountable power has accumulated in the elected leader and his chosen aides About The Book War has blighted the security and happiness of humanity from time immemorial but when two hundred years ago the colonies in North America broke away from British rule and established the United States it was seen as a hopeful promise for the peoples of the world A new democracy had been launched wherein all or at least the majority were deemed to be created equal in respect of their rights and were citizens and not subjects in a land of self confident individualism which was not only free of the hereditary based authoritarianism of the Old World but more significantly seemed destined to live at peace with the great nation states beyond their frontiers It was a nation where government was minimised to ensure freedom in the spheres of commerce religion and private life but the ideals of universal concord were not so easily to be achieved by either the efforts of this new people or by the world at large The good intentions of humanity were soon found to clash with the psychology and social realities of human interaction The democratic instinct is not necessarily a universal attribute of humanity Our minds may be attracted to the ideals of justice equity and freedom but another sinister tendency the lapse into authoritarianism or the longing for the charismatic sets up an opposing force in the body politic There is an inseparable divide between the practicality of democracy and the triumph of captivating leadership True freedom and the Superman cannot

  • The Democratic Imperative • Arena Books
    1960s and after many years of practical experience in senior management in business in politics and other spheres of public life he is ideally qualified to have prepared the present study on some major issues which our elected politicians dare not address These are the problems of casino capitalism and over population in their many manifestations For some years the author has distanced himself from any party allegiance in the belief that all parliamentary groups have now lost the plot and that the time has arrived for reaching a cross party consensus on national rather than factional issues About The Book Democracy understood as people power which is the only proper definition of the word is put forward in this book as the panacea for resolving the most pressing issues of our time But democracy as a practicable system hinges on many conditions which are seldom appreciated by our world leaders international institutions or relevant bodies of learning The evolution of democracy as a system of government and way of life and the problems to which the former gives rise is broadly discussed by the author Of most significance are those situations in both East and West when democracy is ideologically used as a cover for ulterior purposes It is powerfully argued that the left right divide which for 200 years has served as the rationale for advancing social progress in sustaining democracy is now destroying it as partly witnessed through the collapse of both party memberships and voting figures in most advanced industrial economies This has occurred through the transformation of society and the world of work over the past 60 years and has left our parliamentary representatives trapped in a time warp of the past in their inability to meet the actuality of contemporary issues It is clearly
