Paperback: $21.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
Mong-Lan once again brings us her tango art, full of sensuality, vigor and loveliness. Based in Buenos Aires, Mong-Lan shares with us her tango vision, a world of lines, flowing bodies in motion. A... More > world of great heart, a blossoming love, and a vision all her own. Reminiscent of Picasso, Matisse, and the great artists of this century, Mong-Lan’s pen and inks on paper are like performance pieces on the page, a moment captured.

Among her honors include a Fulbright Fellowship in Vietnam and a two-year Stegner Fellowship at Stanford University. Her artwork has been exhibited in the U.S. Capitol House, galleries in the U.S., the Dallas Museum of Art, and in public exhibitions in Buenos Aires, Tokyo, Seoul, Bali and Bangkok.< Less

Paperback: $15.49
Prints in 3-5 business days
After the 9/11 attacks on the United States, homeland defense became the primary issue in U.S. defense policy. At the same time, it was clear that homeland defense would have to become a trilateral... More > continental issue, and, thus, would have to include Canada and Mexico. Because the United States and Canada already had developed a relatively close relationship during and after World War II as a result of their common interests and efforts in NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) and NORAD (North American Air Defense), increased knowledge of and contact with the Mexican armed forces became important. Understanding the most recent component of the new continental defense arrangement involves more than accessing the military capabilities of the Mexican armed forces. Rather, the demands of continental defense outside the usual NATO or NORAD contexts require that U.S. and Canadian civilian and military decisionmakers, policymakers, and opinionmakers embark on a comprehensive investigation...< Less

More > then-Major Thomas Graves—currently serving as a Brigadier General—traced the history behind the development of air assault doctrine, tactics, and procedures that would later be used with great effect during the Vietnam War. The Howze Board and the development of the 11th Air Assault Division (Test) served as a great paradigm for how the U.S. Army could examine new concepts involving emerging technologies and put them in practice throughout the Army. It was the 11th Air Assault Division (Test) that would later become the 1st Cavalry Division and utilize the new tactics immediately in combat, most notably in their first major battle in the Ia Drang Valley in 1965.< Less

Since the 1975 renunciation of the use of herbicides, this military episode has remained unique in U.S. history. Includes notes, appendices, bibliography, and photos.< Less

Paperback: $6.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
The airborne divisions are undoubtedly the most impressive formations within the Ru sian army. The troops of the airborne forces (VDV) are the best trained and most professional in the army. Unlike... More > their West¬ern airborne counterparts, they are capable of fielding both armored personnel carriers and artillery assets. That affords them additional battlefield protection and firepower. VDV forces also have shown themselves—as in the 2008 war with Georgia—able to respond very quickly in crisis situations. Indeed, the airborne troops performed very creditably overall in Georgia. Such disciplined and professional airborne forces will likely form the vanguard of any interventionary operation be¬yond Russia’s borders. Other than Georgia, the last time VDV forces were employed operationally abroad was in Kosovo in 1999. It was there at Priština International Air¬port that VDV troops had a potentially explosive show¬down with British paratroopers.< Less
