Abrivard finds himself fighting a defensive war, putting his great battle skills to the task of driving the invaders from his home, the land of the Thousand Cities. But even as he struck back at the invader, he realized that force of arms alone would not carry the day, for Videssos's powerful sorcerers were the stuff of legend, and a strong sword are could not stand against a potent battle spell which could strike the mightiest warrior dead from miles away . . .

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Two Complete Novels in the Popular Videssos Series. The Stolen Throne The fragile peace between the Empire of Videssos and the nation of Makuran had shattered. War came, and the King of Makuran lay dead on the field of battle. Worse, a power-mad minister had seized the throne and the rightful heir had disappeared. Abivard, son of a Makuran lord who also had fallen in the same battle, realized that his only hope of saving his family and his land was to find the missing heir, though that would mean he would be branded traitor and become the target of every armed man who served the usurper¾and of his nation's most powerful sorcerers. Abrivard's only hope lay in the form of a perplexing prophecy of a field, a hill, and a shield shining across the sea. If the prophecy was true, it might lead him to the rightful ruler of Makuran¾but first, he would have to survive long enough to solve its riddle. Hammer and Anvil The once-mighty Empire of Videssos had a despot on its throne, the pretender Genesios who enjoyed the opulent wealth at his command while barbarian attackers and invading enemies ravaged Videssos' borders. Some wondered if Videssos would even exist before many more years had passed. None within the empire dared oppose Genesios, but young Maniakes, exiled with his father to a faraway island, raised a military force and set out to liberate his homeland. The forces against him were formidable, he faced Videssos' external foes as well as the legions of the tyrant, and a former friend would prove to be his most dangerous enemy.

Download The Russian Army in a Time of Troubles PDF by Pavel K Baev Full Free and published by SAGE. This book was released on 1996-05-03 with total page 221 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This study of the Russian army and how it has fared in the uncertain transitional period since independence in December 1991 provides the basis for understanding its present and potential future role in the new political developments within Russia. Following an historical overview of Russia′s security agenda and an examination of the Russian/Soviet army′s tradition of involvement in politics, the book then examines Russia′s current security interests and the role of the army in protecting them. Geopolitical perspectives are linked to the security issues of the `Near Abroad′, and to the nuclear dimension of security. Pavel K Baev then considers the question of the feasibility of political control over the Russian army. The problem of the politicization of the army is followed through the interlinked issues of stalled military reform and a drastically reduced military budget. Baev examines the current military role of the army with case studies on conflict management in the Caucasus and the army′s performance in the role of peace-keeper in the Chechen War. Finally, the place of the army in Russia′s peace-keeping activities within a broader European context is examined.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: David Alexander, an American professor of Russian, is called to task about an offhand remark he made concerning Tsar Boris Godunov, an historical figure portrayed as a villain and prince-murderer in history, as well as in literature and opera. David's remark precipitates an academic dispute, and his teaching job is on the line. So is his historical research into Russia's Cult of Sophia, which is part of the religious ideal of The Divine Feminine. His research takes him back to the early 1600's, and he and a Soviet archivist colleague chance upon long-concealed letters written by three Orthodox monks. The hunt is on for the long-suppressed mystical papers to which these monks refer. William Jack has an MA and PhD in Slavic Languages and Literature, with a specialization in Russian literature, from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

Download Organisational Transformation in the Russian Oil Industry PDF by Sarah Dixon Full Free and published by Edward Elgar Publishing. This book was released on 2008-01-01 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The author of this volume provides an insider view of the story due to her involvement with the [Russian oil] industry over a long period and her access to information from key players of the industry. . . the book is a welcome addition, especially for its sound story line. Anyone interested in the transformation of the Russian oil industry will find it a valuable work. It will also inspire researchers to analyse organisational transformation of other types of industries, especially electricity and gas in many countries around the world that have undergone radical changes in the past. Subhes C. Bhattacharyya, International Journal of Energy Sector Management Sarah Dixon has produced a fascinating look at the internal workings of four major Russian oil companies during the decade following their privatisation in the mid-1990s. Dixon has utilised her in-depth knowledge of Russia and her business experience in its thriving oil industry to gain access to Russia s powerful business titans. Her insights and careful observations have resulted in a masterful analysis of organisational transformation during Russia s radical institutional upheaval. The book is a valuable contribution to resource-based theory by explaining linkages between organisational learning, dynamic capabilities, and implementation of organisational transformation. Practitioners will also benefit from the rich case studies offering insight into constraints and enablers of organisational transformation. Sheila M. Puffer, Northeastern University, Boston, US Here the example of the Russian oil industry in the context of transition from a planned to a market economy is used to develop a three-stage framework for organisational transformation. Four longitudinal case studies of Russian oil companies are drawn upon to explain the process of organisational transformation. The book highlights how and why this process differs between companies within the same industry, explores the complexity of the change process and discusses the importance of the top management team. The links between organisational learning, dynamic capabilities and the implementation of change are analysed. An interesting insight into the constraints and enablers of organisational change is also provided. The framework developed from this study can be successfully applied to other organisations wishing to bring about organisational change. Integrating several perspectives, including a resource-based view, organisational learning, dynamic capabilities and top management team theory, this book will be of great interest to scholars and researchers of business and management, international business and organisational behaviour.

Download Russia in the Time of Cholera PDF by John P. Davis Full Free and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2018-03-09 with total page 336 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: As the nineteenth century drew to a close and epidemics in western Europe were waning, the deadly cholera vibrio continued to wreak havoc in Russia, outlasting the Romanovs. Scholars have since argued that cholera eventually fell prey to better sanitation and strict quarantine under the Soviets, citing as evidence imperial mismanagement, a `backward' tsarist medical system and physicians' anachronistic environmental interpretations of the disease. Drawing on extensive archival research and the so-called `material turn' in historiography, however, John P. Davis here demonstrates that Romanov-era physicians' environmental approach to disease was not ill-grounded, nor a consequence of neo-liberal or populist political leanings, but born of pragmatic scientific considerations. The physicians confronted cholera in a broad and sophisticated way, essentially laying the foundations for the system of public health that the Soviets successfully used to defeat cholera during the New Economic Policy (1922-1928). By focusing for the first time on the conclusion of the cholera epoch in Russia, Davis adds an indispensable layer of nuance to the existing conception of Romanov Russia and its complicated legacy in the Soviet period.
