This passionate and angry book appraises two visions of religious freedom: on the one hand, the apocalyptic vision of George W Bush and the Christian conservatives who back his policies, particularly in relation to Iraq and the so-called war on terror; and on the other hand, the vision of a Christian majority elsewhere who are deeply worried and antagonised by what they view as American neo-imperialism. The authors show that the Republican-led imposition of free market values on new subject peoples represents at root the articulation of a divinely ordered mission – to globalise 'an American Christian conception of freedom and democracy – by military means.' Their starting point is President Bush's quotation in his inaugural speech of the 18th century statesman John Page, who enquired if it were not 'an angel who directed the storm' within which American came into being. Such language and conceptuality has been misused by the current administration to justify its adventurist and – as the authors see it, disastrous – policymaking. Drawing on a fascinating range of religious and secular literature, the authors show that there is a different kind of war taking place from the one of terrorism. This is a war for the heart and soul of America itself, and for what 'Christian' culture might mean in a global context increasingly administered by a pax Americana that – like the Roman Empire of old – is yet hated and mistrusted by many of the peoples it is nominally there to protect. Northcott and Hassell trace the roots of American apocalyptic to Puritan Millennialism and contemporary fundamentalist readings of the Book of Revelation. They suggest that Americans urgently need to recover a critique of Empire of the kind espoused by the founder of Christianity if their own religion is to avoid the charge of idolatry. America itself emerged out of a war against an empire. In the process, some of those amongst its peoples developed powerful resources for resisting imperialism which, as the authors show, may yet prove valuable as the child of empire becomes, both in word and deed, an oppressive empire in its own right. Michael Northcott is one of Britain's best known specialists in theology and politics, and is Reader in Christian Ethics at the University of Edinburgh. He is the author of The Environment and Christian Ethics (1996) and of Life After Debt: Christianity and Global Justice (1999). Tristin Hassell is a researcher in theology, also based at Edinburgh University. (to come from Stanley Hauerwas, Gibert T Rowe Professor of Theological Ethics, Duke University

The award-winning authors of The Road to Hell: How the Biker Gangs Are Conquering Canada bring us a definitive, up-to-the-minute account of the Hells Angels and the international biker network. Marsden and Sher explain how the expansion of America’s foremost motorcycle gang has allowed this once ragtag group of rebels, outcasts and felons to become one of the world’s most sophisticated criminal organizations. While the media has continued to toast the Hells Angels California leader, Sonny Barger, as an American legend, the facts tell another story – they are America’s major crime export. With an estimated 2,500 full-patch members in 25 countries, the Hells Angels have inspired a global subculture of biker gangs that are among the most feared and violent underworld players. Angels of Death takes readers to Arizona, inside the biggest American police undercover operation to infiltrate the bikers; to British Columbia where wealthy bikers dominate the organized crime pyramid; to Australia where the “bikies” shoot it out with police; to Curaçao where terrorist organizations funnel drugs to Dutch bikers; and to the streets of Oslo, Copenhagen and Helsinki where a murderous biker war saw rocket attacks and bombs turn Scandinavia into a war zone. For the first time, police officers who have infiltrated biker gangs tell their secrets – revealing the challenges, fears and horrors they’ve discovered going undercover. Sher and Marsden take the reader behind the latest headlines to tell the story of how the Hells Angels became so powerful, and how the police – with only a few successes – have tried to stop them. Excerpt from Angels of Death: Three murderous evenings, three different continents, three faces of the Angels of death: the killing of innocents, the killing of fellow bikers, and the killing of cops. Not to mention the hundreds of thousands of lives ruined, brains fried, bodies withered by the methamphetamines, cocaine and other drugs pushed by the bikers. And yet while the body count kept mounting, Sonny Barger, the Californian patriarch and international leader of the Hells Angels, was being feted by the international media as he promoted his latest bestselling book. Even the usually thoughtful British press fell for the rebel Yankee. The Times called him, “affable, big-hearted, warm.” The Independent labelled him an “American legend.” And in many ways he is.

Khesh City floats above the surface of the uninhabitable planet of Vellern. Topside, it's extravagant, opulent, luxurious; the Undertow is dark, twisted and dangerous. Khesh City is a place where nothing is forbidden - but it's also a democracy, of sorts, a democracy by assassination, policed by the Angels, the élite, state-sponsored killers who answer only to the Minister, their enigmatic master. Taro lived with Malia, his Angel aunt, one of the privileged few, until a strange man bought his body for the night, then followed him home and murdered Malia in cold blood. Taro wants to find the killer who ruined his future, but he's struggling just to survive in the brutal world of the Undertow. Then an encounter with the Minister sets him on a new course, spying for the City; his target is a reclusive Angel called Nual. Elarn Reen is a famous musician, sent to Khesh City as the unwilling agent of mankind's oldest enemy, the Sidhe. To save her own life, she must find and kill her ex-lover, a renegade Sidhe. Though they come from different worlds, Taro and Elarn's fates are linked, their lives apparently forfeit to other people's schemes. As their paths converge, it becomes clear that the lives of everyone in Khesh City, from the majestic, deadly Angels to the barely-human denizens of the Undertow, are at risk. And Taro and Elarn, a common prostitute and an uncommon singer, are Khesh City's only chance ...

A follow-up to Alex Caine's bestselling Befriend and Betray and the third in his trilogy about big biker gangs, Angel Dust focuses on the Hells Angels. The Angels have built an empire, starting from their days as saddle tramps riding Harleys to becoming multi-millionaires driving high-end SUVs. The organization has moved deeper and deeper into legitimate business, particularly in the entertainment industry, real estate, currency exchange, and online gambling and pornography. Though much has been previously written about the Hells Angels, no author to date has had Caine's combination of experience as an undercover agent and his extensive contacts within gangs and law enforcement. Caine delves into this meteoric ascent and the consequences it has had for the Angels as they transform themselves from outlaw bikers into a new mafia. Using his contacts in domestic and international police forces and Interpol, Caine exposes the inner workings of the club, shows what it's become, and what is on the gang's horizon.

In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries George Griffiths was as well known and, according to some experts, as popular as that other exemplar of the early British scientific romance, H. G. Wells. 'The Angel of the Revolution, ' is a rich brew that calls to mind Verne's tales of futuristic wars while being original, visionary, exciting and technologically prescient. This is the story of a group of idealists, 'The Brotherhood of Freedom, ' led by Natas, a crippled but brilliant Russian Jew and his daughter Natasha, who conquer the world through airship warfare after a young British inventor masters the technology of flight. Our inventor falls in love with Natasha and joins her in a crusade against political corruption and warmongering that leads to a world in which war is outlawed. The sequel to this book, 'Olga Romanoff, ' is also available from Leonaur, both in hardcover and softcover editio

The war of words between right and left collapsed into a shooting war, and raged between the high-technology weapons on each side, devastating cities and overrunning the countryside. At the close of Empire, political scientist and government adviser Averell Torrent had maneuvered himself into the presidency of the United States. And now that he has complete power at home, he plans to expand American imperial power around the world. Opportunity comes quickly. There's a deadly new plague in Africa, and it is devastating the countryside and cities. President Torrent declares American solidarity with the victims, but places all of Africa in quarantine until a vaccine is found or the disease burns itself out. And he sends Captain Bartholomew Coleman, Cole to his friends, to run the relief operations and protect the American scientists working on identifying the virus. If Cole and his team can avoid dying of the plague, or being cut down by the weapons of fearful African nations, they might do some good. Or they might be out of the way for good.

If Men Were Angels

"What is government itself but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? If men were angels, no government would be necessary." The ever wary James Madison viewed his fellow citizens as anything but angelic. In this radically new interpretation, Richard Matthews portrays a much less optimistic (and yet more liberal) Madison than we've seen before. Neither civic humanist nor democrat, this Madison is a distrusting, calculating, and pragmatic Machiavellian Prince. Hardly an imposing figure, Madison was barely five-feet-six-inches tall, pale complected, a poor speaker, a perpetual hypochondriac and secret epileptic, pursued by bouts of depression and given to dressing in black. And yet his political achievements and intellectual legacy are monumental. Revered as the "Father of the Constitution," Madison was also architect of the "Virginia plan"; one of the two principal authors of The Federalist; leader of the inaugural House of Representatives; reluctant champion of the Bill of Rights; cofounder of the Republican Party, Washington's ghostwriter; Jefferson's Secretary of State; and president and commander-in-chief during America's second war of Independence. Nevertheless, Madison's preeminence in the rise of the modern American state has not always been so widely recognized. And, Matthews contends, what has been written about Madison's political thought has been limited in scope and skewed in interpretation. Unlike previous authors, Matthews goes well beyond Madison's work on the Constitution to reconstruct the complete range of Madison's political thought and intellectual development over the course of his extensive life. In the process, he provides a powerful critique of Madisonian politics. It is possible, he shows, to applaud the energy, design, and intellect that went into Madison's thought and simultaneously challenge the assumptions and values upon which that thought rests. Matthews's Madison understood the potentially fatal problems of a weak, divided state; saw salvation in a strong central government astride an expanding commercial republic; drafted that government's fundamental charter; ran the infant regime as an advisor to two presidents before becoming president himself; and, in retirement, strove to control and manipulate historical interpretations of these efforts. From "The Legislator" to chief executive to keeper of the past and controller of the future, Madison adjusted his political posture to suit the moment. . . . just as Machiavelli's ideal Prince would have done. Madison's system achieved the stability he desired, but at a price Americans should have refused to pay. Provocative and controversial, Matthews's study revises our understanding of this central figure in American history. It illuminates his profound impact upon the America imagined by the Framers, his ongoing influence on the nation we have become, and the tragedy of his success in foreclosing the possibility of a radical Jeffersonian America that never was, but might have been.
