The Hidden Perspective: The Military Conversations of 1906-1914
The Hidden Perspective: The Military Conversations of 1906-1914

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting book., 9 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It should be remembered that Owen had previously prevented an agentinian landing on the falklands by openly sending a submarine. He makes a good case for cabinet government both in 1906-14 and Blair's disasterous support of Bush in his middle east invasions. Only gave it 4 stars as there may be other info he thinks it would be imprudent to include. Interesting to see that impeachment is still an option and that Blair should be impeached. The present situation in the ukraine is vaguely similar with the unfortunate situation in europe after 1906. Thank god Obama is not as big a fool as 'draft dodger' Bush..

Turns out that it was an authors signed copy so it was a bargain. A good start to an essay on Just War Theory

3.0 out of 5 stars no use for the hard of hearing, 2 Aug 2011
There is no loudspeaker switch and the loudest setting necessitates me going to a telephone that has one. Otherwise its ok for the ansaphone and my wife can hear it as her hearing hasnt been damaged by gunfire.

5.0 out of 5 stars The idea of Justice, 30 July 2010
This review is from: The Idea of Justice (Paperback)
Excellent book. Sen has a very wide view of philosophy that, with his illustrations from Asian history, should help we Westerners feel less smug about our superiority in the field of ideas since 1215AD.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Rule of Law, 30 July 2010
This review is from: The Rule of Law (Hardcover)
All right as an A level text book but nothing more. Certainly not worth the full price and am not even sure that it is worth the discounted price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Philosophical writing: an introduction., 30 July 2010
Have read clearer definitions of the different types of argument, with clear illustrating examples, elsewhere but, apart from that, this is an acceptable book.
