Koehler, Hansjurgen
Bottom edge of front cover creased. The fascinating first-hand account by a top defector of the ruthlessness, spy intrigues and curious personalities of the Third Reich. A unique and intimate record, full of surprises, sardonic wit and tragic endings. "Gestapo tactics:" Espionage, intrigue, and subversion. Cunning, cynical, and ruthless in exploiting every human weakness - and murdering anyone who got in the way. Koehler was a special agent working for the top Nazi cop Heydrich, head of the Gestapo, the Secret State Police. He earns his spurs as spying in France, disguised as a Trotskyist refugee, laying the groundwork for Germany to annex these provinces, and matching wits with French and Communist intelligence services. A keen observer and skilful narrator, Koehler reveals how the Gestapo secretly financed and supported the Rumanian Iron Guard and the Spanish Fascists. Then he is sent undercover to a concentration camp to finger a fugitive. What he sees there, and the flogging that puts him in hospital, sows the seeds of his plan to escape.His next mission is to recover "The Fatal File" - documents showing that Hitler's grandmother became pregnant while working as a maid in the Rothschild mansion in Vienna - the Austrian chancellor's secret blackmail weapon to hold Nazi Germany at bay. Heydrich advises Koehler to employ a beautiful Countess to inveigle the file - Austria is disarmed - and the Wehrmacht marches into Austria. Koehler is then promoted to the detail guarding Hitler's residence in the Alps, and gets his chance to escape to Switzerland, where he writes INSIDE THE GESTAPO. In 1943 the OSS commissioned a psychological profile of Hitler by Walter Langer, who drew on the revelations in this book. In 1972 Langer followed up with The Mind of Adolf Hitler: The Secret Wartime Report, which became a mass-market bestseller. 287pp.

McNay, Lois
This book reassesses theories of agency and gender identity against the backdrop of changing relations between men and women in contemporary societies. McNay argues that recent thought on the formation of the modern subject offers a one–sided or negative account of agency, which underplays the creative dimension present in the responses of individuals to changing social relations. An understanding of this creative element is central to a theory of autonomous agency, and also to an explanation of the ways in which women and men negotiate changes within gender relations. 190pp. N.B.

Jannuzzi, Michele; Smith, Richard
Technological advances have changed not only the constraints and possibilities of individual media, but the interplay between media, and our expectations. Never before have we had the potential to channel and cross-reference such a wealth and diversity of information; and never before have we been posed such difficult questions about how information is structured, delivered, and accessed; about who sees what, where, and for how long. Designers not only have to be successful in designing for this medium and that medium but in making them work in tandem with each other, without tautology or contradiction. A cross-media approach involves media selection, optimisation, and articulation to define effective and efficient strategies for the delivery of information, where each medium is played according to its strengths. In this environment everyone is a prospector: everything is up for grabs. This book illustrates these themes through the working methodology of Jannuzzi Smith, one of Europe's most innovative and influential design studios.

Walker, David P. Staff Sergeant
This book tells a one-of-a-kind story of resilience and determination in the Vietnam War. It is written in a no-holds-barred, from-the-gut style. In January 1968, barely a month after arriving in Vietnam as part of an elite long range patrol (LRP) team, Dave Walker received a debilitating shrapnel wound to his eye. Medically discharged and sent home, Walker - now missing an eye - manoeuvred his way back into the army and back to Vietnam in 1970. Battle-hardened, aggressive, and courageous, he served another eighteen months with the best of the best, conducting patrols and special operations in the Central Highlands. 217pp. N.B. Top right corner of front cover slightly creased.
