The War Gods Own

By: David Weber

Excerpt: Prologue slate-gray seawater blew back in explosions of white as the twin- masted schooner sliced through the swell. The eastern sky ahead of her was brushed with rose and gold, a dawn that offered beauty to the eye if no warmth to cold-pinched fingers and noses, and ice glittered on her stays. The low, sleek vessel?s flag?green, badged with a golden seagull?and black hull proclaimed her marfang island registry. Not that any flags were needed. A prudent seaman w...

Government Reference and International Publications of the Center For World Indigenous Studies :

Excerpt: In its resolution 809 (1993) the Security Council asked me to report before the end of May 1993 on the results of specific steps which it invited me to take with a view to expediting the implementation of the Settlement Plan. For reasons explained below, I believe it might be better to present such a report in July 1993. In the interim, the present status report summarizes the progress of my efforts to date.

Haiti

By: Maria Weston Chapman

Fiction

Excerpt: Je renaitrai de mes cendres. THIS second American Republic has a history that would fill volumes; and, as the past is the parent of the present, some knowledge of that history is necessary to a just estimate of the position of Ha?ti as a nation, and to a true understanding of the character of its people. Its history is a warning-a rebuke-a proud, triumphal peal of warlike jubilee-oppression's funeral knell. But here is no room for its resonance. One can only ref...

Mutineers' Moon

By: David Weber

Excerpt: Into the field of fire the tunnel seemed endless, yet the end was upon him almost before he realized it, and he lunged up another ladder. The shaft was sealed, but he was already probing at it, spotting the catch, heaving it up with a mighty shoulder. He burst into the night air . . . And his senses were suddenly afire with more power sources. More combat armor! Coming from behind in the prodigious leaps of jump gear and waiting in the woods ahead, as well!

The Forlorn

By: Dave Freer

Excerpt: Chapter 1 Port Tinarana was like an old, decaying tart, her face lined with a myriad of streets and alleys, inexpertly caked with a crude makeup of overhanging buildings. The alleyways seemed to grow narrower and more choked in filth with the passing of each year. Judging by the ankle-deep slush, this dead end hadn?t had the garbage cleared in the last three hundred of those years. And in a few minutes his body would become yet another once-human part of it. He ...

Turkeys Role in the Greater Middle East

By: Jed C. Snyder

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: For much of the last five decades, Turkey has been regarded by many European observers as a strategic ally but not as a front line NATO member. Its status in the Alliance—as a developing Islamic state with a strong Ottoman tradition that is nonetheless linked to the West—tended more often than not to isolate Turkey politically and also raised questions about its identity. What Ankara perceived as its crucial role in Western security and defense matters seemed to...
