In 2011, the United States launched its third regime-change attempt in a decade. Like earlier targets, Libya's Muammar Qaddafi had little hope of defeating the forces stacked against him. He seemed to recognize this when calling for a cease-fire just after the intervention began. But by then, the United States had determined it was better to oust him than negotiate and thus backed his opposition. The history of foreign-imposed regime change is replete with leaders like Qaddafi, overthrown after wars they seemed unlikely to win. From the British ouster of Afghanistan's Sher Ali in 1878 to the Soviet overthrow of Hungary's Imre Nagy in 1956, regime change has been imposed on the weak and the friendless. In Toppling Foreign Governments, Melissa Willard-Foster explores the question of why stronger nations overthrow governments when they could attain their aims at the bargaining table. She identifies a central cause—the targeted leader's domestic political vulnerability—that not only gives the leader motive to resist a stronger nation's demands, making a bargain more difficult to attain, but also gives the stronger nation reason to believe that regime change will be comparatively cheap. As long as the targeted leader's domestic opposition is willing to collaborate with the foreign power, the latter is likely to conclude that ousting the leader is more cost effective than negotiating. Willard-Foster analyzes 133 instances of regime change, ranging from covert operations to major military invasions, and spanning over two hundred years. She also conducts three in-depth case studies that support her contention that domestically and militarily weak leaders appear more costly to coerce than overthrow and, as long as they remain ubiquitous, foreign-imposed regime change is likely to endure.

In the grand tradition of "Tristram Shandy" and "Tom Jones", not to mention Huck Finn and Holden Caulfield, author John D. Foster takes us on a journey through the American landscape of latter day 20th century. It's a rollicking tale of being down and out, or in and out, with a smorgasbord of cads, cons and other characters who populate the daylight demimonde of Southern California on the fringe. Indeed, it's a fringe tale of the edgy, the offbeat and the oddball. These are tales not oft told, full of whimpers and whispers that are reminiscent of a whiplash in a hurricane.

The thought that there was something better out there took Tristan away...then pride almost broke his heart. Tristan, Samuel and Casey had been friends since grade one. When Casey—the doctor's son—goes off to university, Samuel and Tristan are left behind in their small hometown. Samuel comes from a poor background and has no money for school. He takes a job in the hardware store that Tristan's parents own. Tristan decides to work at the store for a year before joining Casey at school. He's expected to run the store eventually but wants to explore what's out there first. Breaking away from the town means breaking Samuel's heart. When tragedy brings Tristan home again, will pride stand in the way of letting Samuel know how he feels?
