Sikkim Requiem for a Himalayan Kingdom

Sikkim Requiem for a Himalayan Kingdom

Author: Andrew Duff Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 04/10/2018

This is the true story of Sikkim, a tiny Buddhist kingdom in the Himalayas that survived the end of the British Empire only to be annexed by India in 1975.It tells the remarkable tale of Thondup Namgyal, the last King of Sikkim, and his American wife, Hope Cooke, thrust unwittingly into the spotlight as they sought support for Sikkim's independence after their 'fairytale' wedding in 1963. As tensions between India and China spilled over into war in the Himalayas, Sikkim became a pawn in the Cold War in Asia during the 1960s and 1970s. Rumours circulated that Hope was a CIA spy. Meanwhile, a shadowy Scottish adventuress, the Kazini of Chakung, married to Sikkim's leading political figure, coordinated opposition to the Palace. As the world's major powers jostled for regional supremacy during the early 1970s Sikkim and its ruling family never stood a chance. On the eve of declaring an Emergency across India, Indira Gandhi outwitted everyone to bring down the curtain on the 300 year-old Namgyal dynasty.Based on interviews and archive research, as well as a retracing of a journey the author's grandfather made in 1922, this is a thrilling, romantic and informative glimpse of a real-life Shangri-La.

Maastricht and Beyond Building a European Union

Maastricht and Beyond Building a European Union

Author: Andrew Duff Format: Hardback Release Date: 28/06/2017

Maastricht and Beyond is a critical assessment of the European Union brought into being by the Treaty of Maastricht. A team of experts provide a clear and thorough appraisal of the main provisions of the Treaty - including the three pillared structure of Economic and Monetary Union, common foreign and security policy and home affairs and justice - showing how these elements will change the function and eventually the character of the European Union. The book draws conclusions from the Maastricht process for the next reform of the Union in 1996, and it examines the practicalities of achieving a fully-fledged federal democracy, making proposals for a constitutional settlement. Maastricht and Beyond will appeal to both informed generalists and to students and scholars who want a fresh approach to the stale arguments over Maastricht, who seek enlightenment over what the Treaty is for and who have the curiosity to look forward to 1996 and beyond.

The Struggle for Europe's Constitution

The Struggle for Europe's Constitution

Author: Andrew Duff Format: Hardback Release Date: 29/09/2006

Andrew Duff MEP was a leading member of the European Convention which produced the first draft of the European Union's controversial Constitution. In this important new book, he analyses the Convention's successes and failures, and he describes the final negotiations and their outcome. Andrew Duff believes that a durable constitutional settlement is vital for the future of Europe. He explains how the Constitution would strengthen the EU at home and abroad. The rejection of the Constitution by French and Dutch voters makes more, not less urgent this agenda for building a more democratic and effective Union. In this timely book, Andrew Duff urges Europe's leaders not to abandon the worthwhile proposals put forward by the European Convention. He suggests how the Union could emerge from its current political crisis by undertaking a judicious renegotiation of the Constitution designed to overcome the difficulties surrounding the ratification process. This is the first book in English to get to grips with the European Constitution, and Andrew Duff is the first participant to argue for the rescue of the project.
