"There are hopeful messages in Collapse. With Diamond's help, maybe we'll learn to see our problems a little more clearly before we chop down that last palm tree." "Extraordinarily panoramic ...Diamond's complex historical web of how human communities either master their environment or become victims of them ... takes a lifetime of research and, in normal English, leads the reader painstakingly where the media and intellectual journals have often refused to go." 575 clean well bound pp, photos mid section, weight about 1kg packed for post  Excellent/None issued

HITLER’S SAMURAI The Waffen - SS in Action
Quarrie Bruce
ISBN: 085059572x
Patrick Stephens, Cambridge  1983 
 Hard Cover "Unknown to most people is the fact that the fighting arm of Hitler's SS obeyed a creed brought back from Japan in mediaeval times by Jesuit missionaries, a warrior code which united the concepts of loyalty and honour and which set the initiate aside from the rest of the populace, responsible only to his peers. The book discusses SS recruitment methods, and the restrictions on these imposed by the Army. It describes the training schools which were established, and the methods of toughening recruits both physically and mentally which shocked traditional military thinkers. Includes many b/w photographs.  As New/As New

SUN TZU ON THE ART OF WAR. The Oldest Military Treatise in the World. Translated from the Chinese with Introduction and Critical Notes

 Softcover liii, + 204pp. Book clean. Spine firm. Leaves clean and unmarked. Illustrated card wrapper softly edge-creased on lower foredge corner of front panel, short, soft crease to rear. " 'Sun Tzu on the Art of War', translated by the highly respected authority Lionel Giles, unravels the complexities of meaning found in the world's oldest military treatise. In examining the work step-by-step, Giles pays particular attention to the subtleties of the Chinese characters (given throughout) and the interpretations offered by centuries of informed commentators. Examples from both ancient and modern history bring alive the explanations and illustrate the remarkable timelessness of Sun Tzu's words. Respected today as much for its skilful handling of human nature as for its battle stratagems, 'The Art of War' has exerted untold influence on countless generations of warriors, those of the battlefield and armchair alike."
