Choosing war : the lost chance for peace and the escalation of war in Vietnam
Logevall, Fredrik, 1963-
Berkeley : University of California Press, ©1999
The kickoff: 29 August 1963 -- Breaks and continuities: September to November 1963 -- "I will not lose in Vietnam": November 1963 to January 1964 -- "A deeply dangerous game": February to April 1964 -- Rumblings of discontent: April to June 1964 -- Campaigns at home and abroad: June and July 1964 -- Provocations: August 1964 -- Standing logic on its head: September and October 1964 -- The freedom to change: November and December 1964 -- "Stable government or no stable government": January and February 1965 -- Americanization: February to July 1965 -- Choosing war.

In Choosing War Fredrik Logevall presents the first truly comprehensive examination of the making of a major war in Vietnam in 1963-65. Placing U.S. decision making in its wider international and domestic political contexts, he shows that the Vietnam War was unnecessary, not merely in hindsight but from the perspective of key players at the time, American-officials chose war over disengagement despite deep pessimism about U.S. prospects in the war and over the objections of important voices in the United States and abroad.

Messianism, Zionism, and Jewish religious radicalism
Ravitzky, Aviezer
Chicago : University of Chicago Press, 1996
Introduction -- Messianism, Zionism, and orthodoxy : historical and conceptional background -- "Forcing the end" : radical anti-Zionism -- "The revealed end" : messianic religious Zionism -- Exile in the Holy Land : the dilemma of Haredi Jewry -- The Lubavitch Hasidic movement : between conservatism and messianism -- Afterword -- Appendix : The impact of the three oaths in Jewish history.

The Orthodox Jewish tradition affirms that Jewish exile will end with the coming of the Messiah. How, then, does Orthodoxy respond to the political realization of a Jewish homeland that is the State of Israel? In this cogent and searching study, Aviezer Ravitzky probes Orthodoxy's divergent positions on Zionism, which range from radical condemnation to virtual beatification. Ravitzky traces the roots of Haredi ideology, which opposes the Zionist enterprise, and shows how Haredim living in Israel have come to terms with a state to them unholy and therefore doomed. Ravitzky also examines radical religious movements, including the Gush Emunim, to whom the State of Israel is a divine agent. He concludes with a discussion of the recent transformation of Habad Hassidism from conservatism to radical messianism.

Kilo Co : a Vietnam memoir
Kay, Les
Simsbury, Connecticut : Antrim House, [2015]
The poetic vignettes in Les Kay's Kilo Co comprise the memoir of a warrior who fought and bled for his country, a country that betrayed him but which he continues to love as he loves his fellow marines, though he suffers from PTSD, which has made his life a bunker to defend against the continuing onslaughts of an invisible enemy.

Against all odds : voices of popular struggle in Iraq
Issa, Ali
New York : War Resisters League, 2015
"Collected from dozens of interviews with, and reports from, Iraqi feminists, labor organizers, environmentalists, and protest movement leaders, Against All Odds presents the unique voices of progressive Iraqi organizing on the ground. Dating back to 2003, with an emphasis on the 2011 upsurge in mobilization and hope as well as the subsequent embattled years, these voices belong to Iraqis asserting themselves as agents against multiple local, regional, and global forces of oppression. As Vijay Prashad notes in the foreword: "Other histories had been possible for Iraq, and indeed might yet be possible. The social basis for the Popular Movement to Save Iraq remains, even if in the shadows. It is the only force that could provide an alternative to the history of blood that stands before Iraq, the nest of bones, the sky of death." Workers' justice, gender liberation, anti-imperialism, and global solidarity have been on the agendas of many Iraqi organizations, in contrast to almost all media and scholarly representations--even those that are sympathetic to popular Iraqi struggles. Media and scholarship instead focus on geopolitics, mass violence, and sectarianism to the exclusion of attempts at independent political action and imagination in Iraq. With the legacy of wars since 1980, followed by the brutal sanctions of the 1990s and the 2003 US invasion and occupation, not to mention the recent emergence of the threatening forces of the Islamic State, understanding and acting in solidarity with these struggles is more crucial than ever."--Publisher's description.

Ancient cookware from the Levant : an ethnoarchaeological perspective
London, Gloria
Sheffield, UK : Equinox Publishing Ltd, 2016
"Ancient clay cooking pots in the southern Levant are unappealing, rough pots that are not easily connected to meals known from ancient writings or iconographic representations. To narrow the gap between excavated sherds and ancient meals, the approach adopted in this study starts by learning how food traditionally was processed, preserved, cooked, stored, and transported in clay containers. This research is based on the cookware and culinary practices in traditional societies in Cyprus and the Levant, where people still make pots by hand. Clay pots were not only to cook or hold foods. Their absorbent and permeable walls stored memories of food residue. Biblical texts provide numerous terms for cookware without details of how they looked, how they were used, or why there are so many different words. Recent studies of potters for over a century in the southern Levant provide a wealth of names whose diversity helps to delineate the various categories of ancient cookware and names in the text. Ancient Cookware from the Levant begins with a description of five data sources: excavations, ancient and medieval texts, 20th century government reports, early accounts of potters, and ethnoarchaeological studies. The final section focuses on the shape, style, and manufacture of cookware for the past 12,000 years. For archaeologists, changes in cooking pot morphology offer important chronological information for dating entire assemblages, from Neolithic to recent times. The survey of pot shapes in Israel, Palestine, and Jordan presents how different shapes were made and used"--Provided by publisher.
