For a limited time, download Warlord and receive a special note from New York Times bestselling author Ted Bell. Counterspy Alexander Hawke races to stop a madman hell-bent on murdering the British royal family in this latest spellbinding action thriller in Ted Bell's New York Times bestselling series. Alex Hawke has all but given up on life. The British-American MI6 counterterrorism operative lost the woman he loved almost a year ago and has sought refuge at the bottom of a rum bottle ever since. But late one night at his home on Bermuda, he receives a wake-up call . . . literally. His Royal Highness Prince Charles, an old friend, desperately needs his help. The prince has discovered a not-so-subtle threat directed toward the British royal family. What's more, the evidence reveals an ominous connection to Charles's god-father, Lord Mountbatten—the beloved family patriarch assassinated by an ingeniously designed bomb thirty years before. A shadowy figure from the past has the British crown in his sights, and has proven once before that his warnings are not to be taken lightly. Several clues point to IRA involvement, but the authorities have little to go on and answers are scarce. This is just the call to duty Hawke needs to get back into action—if the madman doesn't strike first. Alex Hawke, one of the most dashing and compelling action heroes in all of thriller fiction, faces his most formidable challenge yet in Warlord, a gripping, white-knuckled adventure told with verve and swashbuckling panache by a master of the art.

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."
