Dangerous Decade: Taiwan's Security and Crisis Management Audiobook

Dangerous Decade: Taiwan's Security and Crisis Management

Author: Brendan Taylor Narrator: Nigel Anthony Release Date: December 2020

Taiwan's position looks increasingly precarious, and tensions threaten to grow into a major strategic crisis. Chinese President Xi Jinping has made reunification with Taiwan a central pillar of his vision for China, and has ramped up diplomatic and economic pressure on Taiwan. Its inhabitants are increasingly estranged from the mainland, and Tsai Ing-wen's administration refuses to conduct relations with China on Beijing's terms. Taiwan could take on renewed strategic significance amid the backdrop of the deepening rivalry between China and the United States, and find itself at the centre of a Cold War-style superpower confrontation. While Washington's support and military power has historically guaranteed Taiwan's security, this is no longer a certainty. This Adelphi book argues that China's military modernisation has changed the cross-strait military balance, and the ability of the US to prevail in a conflict over Taiwan may have evaporated by 2030. As China feels increasingly empowered to retake Taiwan, there is significant potential for escalation, particularly given the ambiguity of Beijing's 'red lines' on Taiwan. Neither Beijing, Taipei nor Washington want such a conflict, but each is challenging the uneasy status quo. Taylor calls for the introduction of a narrower set of formal crisis-management mechanisms designed to navigate a major Taiwan crisis.

Land of Wondrous Cold: The Race to Discover Antarctica and Unlock the Secrets of Its Ice Audiobook

Land of Wondrous Cold: The Race to Discover Antarctica and Unlock the Secrets of Its Ice

Author: Gillen D'arcy Wood, Gillen D’arcy Wood Narrator: Nigel Anthony Release Date: March 2020

A gripping history of the polar continent, from the great discoveries of the nineteenth century to modern scientific breakthroughs Antarctica, the ice kingdom hosting the South Pole, looms large in the human imagination. The secrets of this vast frozen desert have long tempted explorers, but its brutal climate and glacial shores notoriously resist human intrusion. Land of Wondrous Cold tells a gripping story of the pioneering nineteenth-century voyages, when British, French, and American commanders raced to penetrate Antarctica’s glacial rim for unknown lands beyond. These intrepid Victorian explorers—James Ross, Dumont D’Urville, and Charles Wilkes—laid the foundation for our current understanding of Terra Australis Incognita. Today, the white continent poses new challenges, as scientists race to uncover Earth’s climate history, which is recorded in the south polar ice and ocean floor, and to monitor the increasing instability of the Antarctic ice cap, which threatens to inundate coastal cities worldwide. Interweaving the breakthrough research of the modern Ocean Drilling Program with the dramatic discovery tales of their Victorian forerunners, Gillen D’Arcy Wood describes Antarctica’s role in a planetary drama of plate tectonics, climate change, and species evolution stretching back more than thirty million years. An original, multifaceted portrait of the polar continent emerges, illuminating our profound connection to Antarctica in its past, present, and future incarnations. A deep-time history of monumental scale, Land of Wondrous Cold brings the remotest of worlds within close reach—an Antarctica vital to both planetary history and human fortunes.

Crimes against History Audiobook

Crimes against History

Author: Antoon De Baets Narrator: Nigel Anthony Release Date: December 2019

'Crimes against History takes a global approach to the extreme forms of censorship to which history and historians have been subjected through the ages. The book opens by considering the varieties of censorship, from suppression, dismissal, and defamation to persecution and murder. Part I, ''Kill switch,'' tells the tragic story of how the censorship of history has sometimes turned into deadly crimes against history, with chapters looking at topics such as historians and archivists being killed for political reasons, attacks by political leaders on historians, iconoclastic breaks with the past, and fake news. Part II, ''Fragile freedom,'' reverses the perspective and examines how the censorship of history has backfired. Chapters consider the subversive power of historical analogies and resistance to the censorship of history. The book also contains a ''Provisional memorial for history producers killed for political reasons (from ancient times until 2017)''. It is a double tribute: to the history producers who were killed and to those who mustered the courage to resist the blows of censorship. '

Crime & Punishment Audiobook

Crime & Punishment

Author: Fyodor Dosteyevsky Narrator: Nigel Anthony Release Date: May 2017

Crime and Punishment is set in the claustrophobic slums of St Petersburg in the heat of the summer. The novel's setting mirrors the inner life of the main characters as they struggle with their problems of grinding poverty. Central to the plot are the thoughts and actions of Rodion Raskolnikoff, an embittered yet idealistic student who is disastrously influenced by new ideas on morality. He is finally redeemed through the love of Sonia, a prostitute who is also a devout Christian, and the cool wisdom of Porphyrius, a magistrate. 1. On the Brink - A visit to a pawnbroker - A wretched drunk. Rodion Raskolnikoff, an impoverished law student, leaves the slums of St Petersburg to visit Alena Ivanovna, an elderly pawnbroker. She is not impressed by the watch he wishes to pawn and reminds him of debts outstanding. Leaving her, Raskolnikoff is troubled by whether or not he should carry out his plan to murder Alena. He visits a bar where he meets Marmeladoff, a drunken former civil servant. He tells Raskolnikoff that his alcoholism has ruined his family and forced his daughter Sonia into prostitution. Raskolnikoff escorts Marmeladoff home to a tirade from his wife. 2. Murder Is Done - A sudden opportunity. Raskolnikoff is woken by Nastasia, the cleaner, who gives him a letter from his mother. It tells him she and his sister Dounia are coming to St Petersburg. After reading the news, Raskolnikoff wanders the streets in a state of anxiety. Whilst walking in the market, he overhears Elizaveta Ivanovna, the pawnbroker's sister, telling a neighbour that she will be out at seven o'clock the following evening. Raskolnikoff now has his opportunity to find Alena alone. Next day, Raskolnikoff goes to Alena's lodgings. He waits until she is busy untying the parcel he has given her and then strikes her with an axe. Grabbing her keys, he rifles her bedroom and is stealing her possessions when a noise in the next room makes him freeze. 3. Frantic Escape - Death of an innocent - Unexpected callers. Elizaveta has returned home unexpectedly and finds her sister dead. Raskolnikoff murders her, too. Fearful at finding the front door open, and hearing footsteps, Raskolnikoff closes it. Two young men soon arrive and, suspicious of the locked door, go to find the porter. Raskolnikoff slips downstairs, hiding in an empty room when the young men return. At home, he hides his booty and falls into a feverish sleep. 4. Guilty Actions - At the police station - Revisiting the scene. Raskolnikoff is woken by a summons to the police station. He arrives there determined to confess his crime, but he is merely asked to sign some forms. However, when he overhears a discussion about the murders, he faints. On coming to, he is questioned, but allowed to go home. Raskolnikoff becomes feverish again, and later, on waking, realizes that several people, including his friend Razoumikhin, are in the room. When they go, he revisits Alena's flat which is being redecorated. He points out to the workmen that there is no sign of blood and is thrown out by the porter. 5. Mixed Feelings - Death of a drunkard - A family reunion. Marmeladoff is run over by a carriage and Raskolnikoff takes him home. A doctor is called but he can do nothing. When Sonia arrives, Marmeladoff dies in her arms. To calm Marmeladoff's wife, Katerina, Raskolnikoff gives her money sent to him by his mother and leaves, filled with elation at meeting Sonia. Returning home happy, he is so shocked to find his mother and sister waiting for him that he faints. When he recovers, he abruptly tells them to leave. The next day, Raskolnikoff decides to visit Porphyrius Petrovitch, the magistrate. 6. Under Suspicion - A theory examined - Promise of a revelation. At Porphyrius's home, Raskolnikoff pretends to have come to talk about his pawned possessions found at the murder scene. Porphyrius says he was expecting him and discusses Raskolnikoff s theory on crime, which he has read in an article, that superior men need not obey the same laws as others. Porphyrius suggests that Raskolnikoff considers himself to be one of the superior men. He then asks him to return the next day to discuss the murders further. Later, Raskolnikoff visits Sonia, whom he upsets by saying they are both outcasts, and by his questions concerning her future. On leaving, he promises to tell her the name of Alena Ivanovna's murderer. 7. The Net Closes - Confused confessions - The truth is told to a loved one. In his office, Porphyrius begins by speculating about what sort of man might have committed the murders. He tells Raskolnikoff that he knows about his visit to the scene of the crime. Distraught, Raskolnikoff demands to be either charged or cleared. A man suddenly bursts in and confesses to the murders. Confused, Porphyrius has to let Raskolnikoff go. At Sonia's house, Raskolnikoff reveals to her that he is the murderer. She recoils but then vows never to leave him and tells him to confess his crime publicly. News is then brought that Sonia's mother is going mad. 8. Admission of Guilt - Final confession - Love in Siberia. Raskolnikoff and Sonia find Katerina dementedly scolding her children in the street. She collapses from consumption and later dies at home. Some time later, Porphyrius unexpectedly calls on Raskolnikoff and tells him that he knows he is the murderer and that he should confess. Raskolnikoff rebuffs him. Soon after, Raskolnikoff sets out intending to confess in public, but instead, does so at the police station. Eighteen months later in Siberia, Raskolnikoff and Sonia are reconciled in love.

Wounded: From Battlefield to Blighty, 1914-1918 Audiobook

Wounded: From Battlefield to Blighty, 1914-1918

Author: Emily Mayhew Narrator: Nigel Anthony Release Date: September 2013

Wounded traces the journey made by a casualty from the battlefield to a hospital in Britain. It is a story told through the testimony of those who cared for him - stretcher bearers and medical officers, surgeons and chaplains, orderlies and nurses - from the aid post in the trenches to the casualty clearing station and the ambulance train back to Blighty. We feel the calloused hands of the stretcher-bearers; we see the bloody dressings and bandages; we smell the nauseating gangrene and, at London's stations, the gas clinging to the uniforms of the men arriving home. There are the unspeakable injuries: the officer with a hole in his torso so big the doctor can see the sky beyond him; a man with no legs holding a hymnbook for a man with no arms. Together, the experiences in Wounded encapsulate what it was to fight, live and die for four long years at the Western Front. The first comprehensive account of medical care at the Western Front, Wounded is a homage to the courageous and determined men and women who saved hundreds of thousands of lives.
