Spying without spies: origins of america's secret

This book provides the first documented description of the genesis and institutionalization of America's nuclear surveillance system. It traces the development of covert technical methods for assessing the nuclear capability of foreign powers from the introduction of these techniques in World War II to 1949, when they were successfully employed to detect the test of Russia's first atomic bomb. Ziegler and Jacobson examine the planning for the system as well as the technical and organizational obstacles that had to be overcome before it could be implemented.

They describe the government decision-making processes and the ways individuals and groups with different beliefs and interests were mobilized in support of the program. They also explore the relationships between the intelligence and scientific communities that were forged in this process.

The Origins Of Political Order: From Prehuman Time
The Origins Of Political Order: From Prehuman Time

Virtually all human societies were once organized tribally, yet over time most developed new political institutions which included a central state that could keep the peace and uniform laws that applied to all citizens. Some went on to create governments that were accountable to their constituents. We take these institutions for granted, but they are absent or are unable to perform in many of today’s developing countries—with often disastrous consequences for the rest of the world.

Into America's Dream-Dump: A Postmodern Study

This fascinating study explores the Hollywood novel as a culmination of the American Dream and a symbol of its betrayal. Born of promise and hope yet focused on immediate gratification and profit, Hollywood mirrors the contradictions inherent in the myth of the American Dream. The history of the development of the Hollywood novel reflects the deterioration of the American Dream during the 20th century as it has passed from utopian promise through decadence to nightmare and apocalypse.
