Blueprint for Action; A Future Worth Creating. Thomas P. M. Barnett.
New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons, 2005. First Printing [Stated]. Hardcover. xix, [3], 440, [2] pages. Glossary of Key Terms from The Pentagon's New Map. Notes. Index. Thomas P.M. Barnett (born 1962) is an American military geostrategist. He developed a geopolitical theory that divided the world into "the Functioning Core" and the "Non-Integrating Gap" that made him particularly notable prior to the 2003 U.S. Invasion of Iraq when he wrote an article for Esquire in support of the military action entitled "The Pentagon's New Map" (which would later become the title of a book that would elaborate on his geopolitical theories). The central thesis of his geopolitical theory is that the connections the globalization brings between countries are synonymous with those countries with stable governments and rising standards of living. These countries form the Functioning Core. These regions contrast with those where globalization has not yet penetrated, which is synonymous with political repression, poverty, disease, and conflict. These areas make up the Non-Integrating Gap. Key to Barnett's geostrategic ideas is that the United States should "export security" to the Gap in order to connect those regions with the Core, even if this means long periods of nation-building.

Rads: The 1970 Bombing of the Army Math Research Center at the University of Wisconsin and Its Aftermath. Tom Bates.
New York, NY: HarperCollins Publishers, 1992. First edition. First edition [stated]. First printing [stated]. Hardcover. Sewn binding. Paper over boards. xviii, [4], 465, [7] p. Illustrations. Map. Cast of Characters. Index. Black mark at bottom edge. DJ has wear and soiling. Tom Bates was a history professor and journalist who chronicled the 1970 fatal bombing at the University of Wisconsin in his book "Rads." Bates, was a former senior editor of the Los Angeles Times Sunday Magazine. In his 1992 book, "Rads: The 1970 Bombing of the Army Math Research Center at the University of Wisconsin and Its Aftermath," Bates wrote about history as he had experienced it. He was on the Wisconsin campus as a graduate student at the time of the bombing, and two years later would be fired from his first teaching position for protesting the Vietnam War. The book details events and politics of the 1960s leading up to the bombing, which killed a young postdoctoral researcher and caused $6 million in damage to 26 campus buildings. Three men, Karl and Dwight Armstrong and David Fine, were captured and served prison sentences. The fourth, Leo Burt, has not been seen in 29 years. A Times book reviewer, Elinor Langer, concluded that Bates' book was "a braided narrative that is part biography and part true crime."
