A timely and provocative heart-pounding thriller, The Year Of The Dog unleashes terrorism’s worst nightmare: the Sleeping Dogs. It’s the Year of the Dog and China is on the offensive, solidifying its dominion throughout Asia and setting its sights on the rest of the planet. The Russian president intensifies his threat against the free peoples of Europe and beyond. Islamic terrorists continue to fan the flames of hatred and discord across the globe. The world’s baddest actors are ramping up their malevolent ambitions. And some of America’s most dangerous enemies are inside the Beltway. Meanwhile, America’s government, like a modern Nero, fiddles away the country’s treasure, seemingly too oblivious or incompetent to recognize the threat. The patriotic shadow government known as The Society of Adam Smith doesn’t have the benefit of unlimited human and financial resources. And time is running out. But it does have the one resource that no one else has—the world’s deadliest team of hunter-killers. The problem is to get them back together. Three of the six are in various prisons. One is focused relentlessly on avenging the deaths of his wife and sons. A fifth is struggling with a mid-life crisis at the bottom of a whiskey bottle. That leaves Brendan Whelan with one of the most difficult tasks he’s ever faced—reuniting the unwilling Sleeping Dogs and stopping the Free World’s enemies from destroying it. Sit down and buckle up! The hunter/killer Black Ops unit known as the Sleeping Dogs is back. But not all dogs make good pets—and the Hounds of Hell are about to be unleashed! Join the 1,000’s of readers who love techno-political thrillers and who are fans of those remarkable antiheroes, the Sleeping Dogs! If you enjoy mystery/espionage/political thrillers by such best-selling writers as Brad Thor, Lee Child, David Baldacci, Vince Flynn, Ben Coes, Brad Taylor, and Alex Berenson, The Year of the Dog is for you.

"Knowing Japan and the Japanese better," Louis Frédéric states in the introduction to this encyclopedia, "is one of the necessities of modern life." The Japanese have a profound knowledge of every aspect and detail of Western societies. Unfortunately, we in the West cannot say the same about our knowledge of Japan. We tend to see Japan through a veil of exoticism, as a land of ancient customs and exquisite arts; or we view it as a powerful contributor to the global economy, the source of cutting-edge electronics and innovative management techniques. To go beyond these clichés, we must begin to see how apparently contradictory aspects of modern Japanese culture spring from the country's evolution through more than two millennia of history. This richly detailed yet concise encyclopedia is a guide to the full range of Japanese history and civilization, from the dawn of its prehistory to today, providing clear and accessible information on society and institutions, commerce and industry, sciences, sports, and politics, with particular emphasis on religion, material culture, and the arts. The volume is enhanced by maps and illustrations, along with a detailed chronology of more than 2,000 years of Japanese history and a comprehensive bibliography. Cross-references and an index help the reader trace themes from one article to the next. Japan Encyclopedia will be an indispensable one-volume reference for students, scholars, travelers, journalists, and anyone who wishes to learn more about the past and present of this great world civilization.
