Brahim Llob, Khadra's policeman-turned-detective writer is summoned by the chief of Algerian police and fired for having published Morituri, the book which the establishment considers dishonorable and full of lies - and in actuality, Yasmina Khadra's previous book in this series.... After revisiting his hometown, Llob becomes the victim of an attack by a GIA commando, and goes back to Algiers. In this third volume of the Inspector Llob series, fiction and reality intermesh against the pervasive violence of war-torn Algeria.

The Oxford Handbook of Arab Novelistic Traditions is the most comprehensive treatment of the subject to date. In scope, the book encompasses the genesis of the Arabic novel in the second half of the nineteenth century and its development to the present in every Arabic-speaking country and in Arab immigrant destinations on six continents. Editor Wa?l S. Hassan and his contributors describe a novelistic phenomenon which has pre-modern roots, stretching centuries back within the Arabic cultural tradition, and branching outward geographically and linguistically to every Arab country and to Arab writing in many languages around the world. The first of three innovative dimensions of this Handbook consists of examining the ways in which the Arabic novel emerged out of a syncretic merger between Arabic and European forms and techniques, rather than being a simple importation of the latter and rejection of the former, as early critics of the Arabic novel claimed. The second involves mapping the novel geographically as it took root in every Arab country, developing into often distinct though overlapping and interconnected local traditions. Finally, the Handbook concerns the multilingual character of the novel in the Arab world and by Arab immigrants and their descendants around the world, both in Arabic and in at least a dozen other languages. The Oxford Handbook of Arab Novelistic Traditions reflects the current status of research in the broad field of Arab novelistic traditions and signal toward new directions of inquiry.

The story of two boys from the Deep South - one black, the other white - who form an unlikely alliance during the post-Depression era. They survive racial prejudice at home and fight side-by-side during the war in Southeast Asia. They return home heroes, still best friends, and end up depending upon one another until their deaths. The black returns as an ace combat fighter pilot with the stars of a general officer. His friend retires as a senior enlisted man. The story also chronicles the close relationship of the boys' parents at a time when it was unusual and dangerous for the races to coexist like good neighbors.

Following on her acclaimed study of the collapse of international security during the early 1930s, Zara Steiner gives a dramatic and authoritative account of the coming catastrophe. She shows that the era of Hitler's rise to power, an ascent bent on war, was founded on ideologies which the democratic perception could neither penetrate nor arrest. Like few others, this survey takes both European and East Asian conflicts into interlocking accounts. In the light ofnew material, she refutes attempts to whitewash Mussolini; argues that Anglo-French military response in 1938 had realistic prospects; traces the global ramifications of Sino-Japanese wars; andre-evalues Moscow's diplomatic options. Zara Steiner shows that only Hitler regarded the Jewish question as of primary importance. Lucid, formidably documented, this profoundly original work will alter our perceptions of the tragic, decisive epoch from which our present world-map has emerged.
