Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Politik - Internationale Politik - Region: Mittel- und Sudamerika, Note: 1,0, Universitat Passau, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Zur Beantwortung der Frage, ob die Sicherheitslage in Mexiko einem neuen Krieg" entspricht, werden vorab dessen charakteristische Merkmale in theoretischer Form vorgestellt und Auspragungen erlautert. Auf einer nachsten Ebene wird argumentiert, dass organisiertes Verbrechen selbst Gewaltakteur in einem neuen Krieg sein kann und nicht auf eine okonomisch begleitende Rolle in den neuen Kriegen reduziert werden kann. Auf den gewonnenen theoretischen Erkenntnissen aufbauend, erfolgt anschliessend eine Analyse der empirischen Befunde. Hier wird gezeigt, wie die Gegebenheiten der mexikanischen Konfliktsituation das Land zu einem Kriegsschauplatz im Sinne der vorgestellten Konzeption machen. Abschliessend werden die Ergebnisse zusammengefasst und auf die moglichen Implikationen der Feststellung eines neuen Krieges hingewiesen."

A Life of Winston Churchill at War, 1874-1945

Carlo D'Este's brilliant new biography examines Winston Churchill through the prism of his military service as both a soldier and a warlord: a descendant of Marlborough who, despite never having risen above the rank of lieutenant colonel, came eventually at age sixty-five to direct Britain's military campaigns as prime minister and defeated Hitler, Mussolini, and Hirohito for the democracies. Warlord is the definitive chronicle of Churchill's crucial role as one of the world's most renowned military leaders, from his early adventures on the North-West Frontier of colonial India and the Boer War through his extraordinary service in both World Wars. Even though Churchill became one of the towering political leaders of the twentieth century, his childhood ambition was to be a soldier. Using extensive, untapped archival materials, D'Este reveals important and untold observations from Churchill's personal physician, as well as other colleagues and family members, in order to illuminate his character as never before. Warlord explores Churchill's strategies behind the major military campaigns of World War I and World War II—both his dazzling successes and disastrous failures—while also revealing his tumultuous relationships with his generals and other commanders, including Dwight D. Eisenhower. As riveting as the man it portrays, Warlord is a masterful, unsparing portrait of one of history's most fascinating and influential leaders during what was arguably the most crucial event in human history.

A STAR RISES IN THE SOUTH When the foreigners confronted Sterren in Ethshar of the Spices he was uneasy; when they all but abducted him, taking him to an obscure kingdom in the south, he knew he was in a terrible predicament. A predicament some might actually find appealing - he was by heredity the Ninth Warlord of Semma, least of the small kingdoms; he was a noble, and his rank afforded him material privileges, even in a place as insignificant and obscure as Semma. But the office also carried certain terrible responsibilities: he was to win the war the stupid King had stirred up by his arrogance. Two larger and stronger Kingdoms were preparing to invade Semma. And if the country lost, the first thing likely to be forfeit was the life of the Warlord. And if it won . . . if it won, the fate and shape of Ethshar would change forever. For deep in the south there are secrets of magic not even Sterren can imagine. A LEGEND OF ETHSHAR

Defeated in the Sino-Japanese War 1894–95 and the Boxer Rebellion of 1900, Imperial China collapsed into revolution and a republic was proclaimed in 1912. From the death of the first president in 1916 to the rise of the Nationalist Kuomintang government in 1926, the differing regions of this vast country were ruled by endlessly forming, breaking and re-forming alliances of regional generals who ruled as 'warlords'. These warlords acted essentially as local kings and much like Sengoku-period Japan, fewer, larger power-blocks emerged, fielding armies hundreds of thousands strong. In the midto late 1920s some of these regional warlords. This book will reveal each great warlord as well as the organization of their forces which acquired much and very varied weaponry from the west including the latest French air force bombers. They were also joined by Japanese, White Russian and some Western soldiers of fortune which adds even more colour to a fascinating and oft-forgotten period.
