IN THE LION’S DEN
Inside America’s ColdWar with Asad’s Syria
Andrew Tabler
Vast,inscrutable,unpredictable,Syria hastraditionally been the toughest nut to crack inthe Middle East peace process.After 9/11 andDamascus’ opposition to the War in Iraq,Washington decided it had had enough,andbegan a quiet campaign against Asad’s regime.There were no western journalists oracademics based in Damascus during thisperiod – except for Andrew Tabler.In theLion’s Den tells the unique story of the warno-one knew about as seen from the inside.As Tabler negotiates his way through thelabyrinth of Syrian politics,where nothing is asit seems,and no-one says what they mean,welearn how the country works,and how thesignature events in Washington’s attempts tocreate a ‘New Middle East’ – sanctions,meetings with opposition groups,support forIsrael’s 2006 bombing campaign in Lebanon – played out in the corridors of power inDamascus.Part exposé,part vivid narrativeaccount,
In the Lion’s Den
is an essentialintroduction to modern Syria.

SHOCKED AND AWED
How the War onTerror and Jihad haveChanged the EnglishLanguage
Fred Halliday,
late of LSE
Far more than just a military conflict,the ‘Waron Terror’ has been a struggle over values andmeanings,a desperate contest for hearts andminds in which language has become thebattlefield.In this highly original book,FredHalliday takes us on a tour of this new war-zone,its artillery and trenches,minefields andbooby-traps.Drawing on years of painstakingcollation,Halliday shows how the ‘War onTerror’ has brought us not just new words,such as ‘Gitmo’,and new imports,such as‘jihad’,but also new ways of using existinglanguage,such as ‘extraordinary rendition’.Scanning the pock-marked semanticlandscape of the post 9/11 world,he uncovershidden twists of phrasing and wordassociations,which in themselves tell a storyabout the violent clash of ideologies that hasmarked the opening of the 21st century.Partindispensable reference,part polemic,partentertaining snapshot of our times,
Shocked and Awed 
is a bristling arsenal of the 21stcentury’s most potent weapons:words.

BLOGISTAN
The Internet andPolitics in Iran
Annabelle Sreberny,
SOAS
and GholamKhiabany,
University of Westminster
The Islamic Republic of Iran – of all places – has become a hub of cyber activity.It has anestimated 700,000 bloggers.The Internet iscelebrated as an agent of social change incountries like Iran,where censorship isprevalent,but most literature on the subjecthas struggled to grasp what this newphenomenon actually means.In what waysdoes the Internet function differently to printculture? Are we seeing the construction of anew kind of public sphere? Will the Iranianblogosphere create a culture of dissidence,which eventually overpowers the Islamistregime? In this groundbreaking work,theauthors give a flavour of contemporaryInternet culture in Iran,and analyse how thisnew form of communication is affecting thesocial and political life of the country.
Blogistan
offers a new reading of Iranianpolitics,and a new conceptual framework forunderstanding the politics of the Internet,with major implications for China,the widerMiddle East and beyond.

COLD FRONT
Conflict Ahead inArctic Waters
David Fairhall,
TheGuardian
The Arctic:land of ice and the six-month day;enduring source of romance and mystery – and now also a poignant and unavoidableindicator of the impact of climate change.Asthe ice cap shrinks,the geography of theentire Arctic region changes:clear shippingchannels replace immovable ice andinaccessible oil resources become available.What will be the long-term consequences of these cataclysmic changes – not onlyenvironmental but also social and political?
Cold Front
is more than just another attemptto predict the outcome of global warming.Instead it offers a clear-sighted andpenetrating investigation of the Arctic’spivotal role in international relations,placingthe polar region in its historical,political andlegal context.The thawing of the ice-capcreates huge opportunities for trade andtransport – and therefore also for conflictbetween the Arctic nations.Thus
Cold Front
will be essential reading for anyone interestedin humanity’s effect on the Arctic – or theArctic’s effect on humanity.
