The Suicide Club

The Suicide Club

Author: Andrew Williams Format: Hardback Release Date: 06/11/2014

For all readers of Robert Harris, William Boyd and John le Carre, The Suicide Club is a First World War spy thriller set in Occupied Belgium in 1917, and tells the dark, disturbing and untold story of the shadow espionage battle fought behind the lines. Andrew Williams is 'in the front rank of English thriller writers' (Daily Mail) and his novels possess 'a richness of characterisation and intelligence that few thrillers can match' (Sunday Times). August 1917. Britain is mired in bloody stalemate on the Western Front and questions are being asked in government about the leadership of the army. Soldier spy Sandy Innes is summoned from his undercover work in Belgium by the new Secret Service to investigate. Officially transferred to Field Marshal Haig's headquarters in France to prepare agents for the next big push, his secret mission is to spy on Haig's intelligence chiefs. At GHQ, no one is interested in Innes's inside knowledge. Instead, he is attached to an advance assault group dubbed 'The Suicide Club'. His fellow intelligence officers have little faith in the top secret information being fed to Haig by their superior, and as Innes digs deeper he begins to suspect treachery. The stakes could not be higher: the fate of hundreds of thousands of British soldiers. In a tense race against time, against the background of political machinations in government and at GHQ, Innes must survive membership of The Suicide Club, and then risk all by going back behind enemy lines to uncover the truth.

History of Digital Games Developments in Art, Design and Interaction

History of Digital Games Developments in Art, Design and Interaction

Author: Andrew Williams Format: Paperback Release Date: 27/04/2017

The growth of videogame design programs in higher education and explosion of amateur game development has created a need for a deeper understanding of game history that addresses not only when, but how and why. Andrew Williams takes the first step in creating a comprehensive survey on the history of digital games as commercial products and artistic forms in a textbook appropriate for university instruction. History of Digital Games adopts a unique approach and scope that traces the interrelated concepts of game design, art and design of input devices from the beginnings of coin-operated amusement in the late 1800s to the independent games of unconventional creators in the present. Rooted in the concept of videogames as designed objects, Williams investigates the sources that inspired specific game developers as well as establishing the historical, cultural, economic and technological contexts that helped shape larger design trends

Forensic Group Psychotherapy The Portman Clinic Approach

Author: Andrew Williams Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 14/02/2014

Forensic Group Psychotherapy: The Portman Clinic Approach stands as a comprehensive account of theoretical and practical approaches to the group treatment of patients who present with problematic sexual behaviour, criminality, and violence. The first section of the book focusses upon key aspects of group analytic theory as applied to clinical work with forensic patients and describes how to provide a setting in which treatment can proceed. This is followed by a series of chapters with a clinical emphasis, providing a rich and evocative account of the challenges of working with forensic patients in groups. The guiding principle is the need to understand and work with the victim within the perpetrator. This book is a must for any clinician working with forensic patients in groups.

The Poison Tide

The Poison Tide

Author: Andrew Williams Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 11/04/2013

A tense story of a spy undercover during the First World War, Andrew Williams recreates the early years of the Secret Service as evocatively as anything by John le Carre or Robert Harris. The Poison Tide is the first in a series of novels set in that world and 'possesses a richness of characterisation and intelligence that few thrillers can match' Sunday Times. 1915. German guns are on their way to Ireland. The British government faces its worst nightmare; insurrection at home while it struggles with bloody stalemate on the Western Front. British spy Sebastian Wolff, of the new Secret Service Bureau, is given the task of hunting down its enemies: one a traitor reviled by the society that honoured him as a national hero; the other a German-American doctor who, instead of healing the sick, is developing a terrifying new weapon that he will use in the country of his birth. Wolff's mission will take him undercover into the corridors of power in Berlin, then across the Atlantic in a race against time to prevent the destruction of the ships and supplies Britain so desperately needs to stave off defeat.

The Ethos of Europe Values, Law and Justice in the EU

The Ethos of Europe Values, Law and Justice in the EU

Author: Andrew Williams Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 11/03/2010

Can the EU become a 'just' institution? Andrew Williams considers this highly charged political and moral question by examining the role of five salient values said to be influential in the governance and law of the Union: peace, the rule of law, respect for human rights, democracy, and liberty. He assesses each of these as elements of an apparent 'institutional ethos' and philosophy of EU law and finds that justice as a governing ideal has failed to be taken seriously in the EU. To remedy this condition, he proposes a new set of principles upon which justice might be brought more to the fore in the Union's governance. By focusing on the realisation of human rights as a core institutional value, Williams argues that the EU can better define its moral limits so as to evolve as a more just project.

The Toxic Morsel T.E. Lawrence and The Mint

The Toxic Morsel T.E. Lawrence and The Mint

Author: Andrew Williams Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 03/04/2008

Lawrence of Arabia has achieved a mythic and heroic stature in our culture. Emerging from the First World War as a national hero and servant of the Empire, Lawrence had the world at his feet. Refusing all the honours and rewards that were offered, he instead sought refuge in the ranks of the Royal Air Force and rebuilt his life by writing The Mint, his day-book of the RAF. Through analysis of Lawrence's text, his letters and a wide variety of critical sources, the role of the self in autobiography is examined, and a parallel is drawn between Lawrence's literary life and his views on literature and imperialism and the reader's place in the autobiographical genre. The result is a series of thought-provoking questions and answers that cast new light on the life of this celebrated icon.

Liberalism and War The Victors and the Vanquished

Liberalism and War The Victors and the Vanquished

Author: Andrew Williams Format: Paperback Release Date: 24/10/2005

Military power is now the main vehicle for regime change. The US army has been used on more than 30 different occasions in the post-Cold War world compared with just 10 during the whole of the Cold War era. Leading scholar Andrew Williams tackles contemporary thinking on war with a detailed study on liberal thinking over the last century about how wars should be ended, using a vast range of historical archival material from diplomatic, other official and personal papers, which this study situates within the debates that have emerged in political theory. He examines the main strategies used at the end, and in the aftermath, of wars by liberal states to consolidate their liberal gains and to prevent the re-occurrence of wars with those states they have fought. This new study also explores how various strategies: revenge; restitution; reparation; restraint; retribution; reconciliation; and reconstruction, have been used by liberal states not only to defeat their enemies but also transform them. This is a major new contribution to contemporary thinking and action. This book will be of great interest to all students and scholars of politics, international relations and security studies.

D-Day To Berlin

D-Day To Berlin

Author: Andrew Williams Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 11/04/2005

Nightfall, 6 June 1944. D-Day is over and the Allies have carved a tenuous foothold in 'Fortress Europe'. The future of Europe hangs in the balance as Hitler's formidable SS Panzer troops threaten to drive them back into the sea. D-DAY TO BERLIN is the remarkable story of the Allied struggle for survival - the battle from the beaches of Normandy to the heart of Hitler's Reich and ultimate victory just eleven months later. The campaign to free Europe from Nazi oppression through the collective operations from D-DAY TO BERLIN mark one of the greatest ever military offensives. The Allies overcame initial setbacks to inflict a devastating defeat on Hitler's crack divisions in France - a victory that was threatened just months later in the bitter winter fighting of the Battle of the Bulge. The final crossing of the Rhine and the advance into Germany changed the course of European history forever. In D-DAY TO BERLIN we meet men and women from both sides - British, American and German soldiers - whose bravery and endurance made the final push through Europe the defining drama of the Second World War.

Free Energy Relationships in Organic and Bio-Organic Chemistry

Free Energy Relationships in Organic and Bio-Organic Chemistry

Author: Andrew Williams Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/09/2003

Introducing the application of free energy correlations to elucidating the mechanisms of organic and bio-organic reactions, this book provides a new and illuminating way of approaching a potentially complex topic. The idea of how free energy correlations derive from polar substituent change is introduced, and common pitfalls encountered in the application of free energy relationships are described, along with the use of these anomalies in mechanistic studies. The concept of effective charge is described in detail, with examples of its application. Throughout, worked answers are provided for the problems posed. Databases of parameters, an extensive bibliography and comprehensive lists of further reading are also included. The text provides an invaluable source of information to senior undergraduates, postgraduates and to industrial researchers with an interest in mechanistic studies. It is the first such book in more than thirty years.

The Battle Of The Atlantic

The Battle Of The Atlantic

Author: Andrew Williams Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 20/02/2003

From 1939 until 1942, Hitler's U-boats - his 'grey wolves' - threatened to accomplish what his air force had hitherto been unable to achieve: to starve Britain into submission. The struggle for control of the Atlantic was to become the longest, and one of the most bitterly fought campaigns of World War II. For Winston Churchill it was 'the only thing that ever really frightened me during the war'. During the course of five bloody and uncertain years, Britain and her Allies lost more than fifty thousand seamen and fifteen million tons of shipping protecting this lifeline. In 'The Battle of the Atlantic', Andrew Williams vividly describes this intense and strategically vital campaign in the fight for Allied victory. '...an excellent book.' Sunday Express

Concerted Organic and Bio-Organic Mechanisms

Concerted Organic and Bio-Organic Mechanisms

Author: Andrew Williams Format: Hardback Release Date: 27/10/1999

The concept of concerted mechanisms was formulated nearly 90 years ago and virtually all general organic chemistry texts mention it. Until now, however, no monograph has addressed the concept explicitly. Over the last two decades, substantial advancements made in the development of precise methods for elucidating concerted mechanisms have heightened the need for a comprehensive text on the subject. Concerted Organic and Bio-organic Mechanisms gathers the salient materials related to this emerging field into a single text. It sets forth the precise definition of concertedness-along with working sub-definitions-and describes rigorous experimental tools chemists can use to diagnose the existence or absence of concerted mechanisms. Advances in our understanding of concerted mechanisms lead to further questions. Concerted Organic and Bio-organic Mechanisms provides the background and the tools researchers need to consider these important questions and further advance the frontiers of reactions, synthesis, and catalysis.
