Military as an Economic Actor:Soldiers in Business
This book sheds light on the process in which the sub-state actor of Greenland has expanded its autonomy and strengthened its de jure participation in the national security of Denmark. By focusing on the case of the US Thule Air Base in Greenland, the largest military base in the Arctic, the authors endeavor to show that in the relationship between great powers, small countries and local actors within them, it is possible for local actors (sub-national entities) to have an influence on higher-level actors in the field of diplomacy on the national security level. For that purpose, the book examines political trends involving Greenland, Denmark, the US and Russia by using the multilateral multi-archive approach. The authors also take up the cases of Okinawa (Japan) and Olongapo (the Philippines) as reference points that provide additional insight into the interaction between the US policy regarding overseas military bases and the host countries´ polities. The competition involving political and economic interests of a number of countries in the Arctic region has been intensifying in recent years, causing significant concern in the international community. Due to the accelerated melting of sea ice and the increase in the accessibility of natural resources and water lanes, the security situation in the Arctic has been changing rapidly, and this book helps meet the need for understanding the political and military factors behind those changes.

´´Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.´´ Proverbs 15:17 It´s a long way from a large, luxurious, rambling estate in the Connecticut countryside to Hollywood´s 77 Sunset Strip, but Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., made that journey, traveling many different roads during the life he so engagingly recreates in this memoir. His parents, the violinist Efrem Zimbalist and the operatic soprano Alma Gluck, who were acclaimed for their artistry throughout the world, provided their son with a childhood of comfort and security and, of course, music. Tracing his life from childhood to the present day, he shares memories of family, his student days at Yale, his military service and travel, and his careers in movies, theater, and television. Included in this audio are musical excerpts from his violin virtuoso father and opera diva mother. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Efrem Zimbalist, Jr..

´´The Art of War´´ is a Chinese military treatise that was written during the 6th century BC by Sun Tzu. Composed of 13 chapters, each of which is devoted to one aspect of warfare, it has long been praised as the definitive work on military strategies and tactics of its time. ´´The Art of War´´ is one of the oldest books on military strategy in the world. It is the first and one of the most successful works on strategy and has had a huge influence on Eastern and Western military thinking, business tactics, and beyond. Sun Tzu was the first to recognize the importance of positioning in strategy and that position is affected both by objective conditions in the physical environment and the subjective opinions of competitive actors in that environment. He taught that strategy was not planning in the sense of working through a to-do list, but rather that it requires quick and appropriate responses to changing conditions. Planning works in a controlled environment, but in a competitive environment. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Cafey.
