Book Summary: Embora o escopo seja amplo geograficamente, ele é limitado por outras restrições. O prazo é limitado ao período clássico de selo postal e uso de papelaria postal, definido aqui como o período de 1840 a 1860. Além disso, para cada entidade emissora de selo, o prazo é limitado a questões postais que precederam a introdução de adesivos perfurados. Além disso, apenas cartas e capas franqueadas com selos imperfurados, ou papelaria postal, sem franquia suplementar estão incluídos. Cada um dos carimbos mostrados corretamente pré-pagam uma taxa postal para o correio doméstico, ou pré-pagam correio externo à medida em que o pré-pagamento era possível. Em essência, os selos e papelaria são mostrados pré-pagando a taxa postal, ou taxas, na maioria das vezes vistas. Tais usos são muitas vezes coincidentes com o uso pretendido da franquia. Uma caixa colorida descreve a classe do serviço de correio mostrado. A taxa postal específica é descrita abaixo de cada item e inclui as datas efetivas. O primeiro escritório central oficial do correio real foi aberto na Inglaterra em 1516. Quase 300 anos depois, Sir Rowland Hill sugeriu 1835 que as cartas até o peso de meio litro inglês (14,5 g) fossem transportadas por uma taxa uniforme de 1 centavo. O receptor não tinha mais que pagar a taxa de postagem, mas o remetente. O remetente teve que usar selos: 5/6/1840 os dois primeiros selos foram emitidos: 1 Penny Black e 2 Pence Blue. Ao mesmo tempo, as capas Mulready foram vendidas. O segundo país que emitiu selos foi o Brasil de 1843. Ele emitiu os chamados olhos de boi. Os Cantones Suíços de Zurique e Geneve emitiram selos no mesmo ano. Alguns pós-mestres nos EUA emitiram selos a partir de 1845. A primeira edição oficial ocorreu em 1847. Os famosos primeiros selos de Maurício foram impressos em 1847. O primeiro selo alemão foi emitido em 11/1/1849 na Baviera, o preto Kreuzer bávaro. A World Post Society UPU foi fundada em 1875. Logo após a emissão dos primeiros selos foram encontrados os primeiros colecionadores de selos. De início, a maioria das pessoas riu desses colecionadores. Mas logo eles se tornaram mais e mais. Os primeiros colecionaram selos do mundo inteiro porque não havia tantos problemas no começo. Esses selos foram armazenados das formas mais diferentes. Havia colecionadores que guardavam seus selos em uma corda ou afixavam seus selos em um papel de parede. Esta não era uma boa maneira de colecioná-los. Portanto, os primeiros livros de selo apareceram. Os selos foram colados com pasta nos livros. Este também não foi um bom tratamento para os selos. Os selos finalmente poderiam ser manuseados com mais cuidado com a invenção da dobradiça em 1889. A primeira associação de colecionadores de selos foi fundada em 1856 nos EUA: o Omnibusclub . Não havia apenas colecionadores de selos, mas também colecionadores de insetos e assim por diante. A primeira associação pura do selo surgiu em 1866, nos EUA: a associação do selo . A primeira associação de selos alemã foi fundada em 1869 em Heidelberg: Süddeutsche Philatelistenverein . The Monthly Advertiser foi a primeira revista de selos. Apareceu pela primeira vez em 15/12/1862 em Liverpool Colecionadores famosos e suas coleções O Dr. John Edward Gray afirmou ser o primeiro colecionador de selos. A realeza inglesa tem a coleção mais famosa com muitas raridades mundiais especialmente da Grã-Bretanha e suas colônias. As coleções do rei Faruk do Egito, do czar Nikolaus III da Rússia, o rei Carol da Romênia também eram bem conhecidas. A coleção de Philipp la Renotière de Ferrary foi a coleção de selos particular mais famosa. Ferrary começou quando criança a colecionar selos. Sua grande propriedade ajudou-o a comprar os selos mais valiosos. Muitos comerciantes trabalhavam apenas para ele e compravam selos e coleções caras em todo o mundo. Ferrary viveu em Paris antes da Primeira Guerra Mundial. Ele pensou ser um alemão. Portanto, teve que fugir para a Suíça quando a Primeira Guerra Mundial começou. A França confiscou sua coleção. Ferrary morreu em 1917. A França leiloou sua coleção em 1921 e ganhou 6.000.000 de Goldmarks. Portanto, esta coleção exclusiva com as mais caras raridades do mundo não existe mais.

Britain and State Formation in Arabia 1962–1971

Book Summary: Half a century ago, Britain abandoned Aden, its last colonial outpost in the Arab world as its attempt to establish a new polity foundered amid a rising tide of Arab nationalism, tribal infighting and anti-colonial sentiment that eventually gave rise to the establishment of South Yemen. Yet just over three years later in 1971, a new state, the United Arab Emirates, emerged in Arabia, formed from the old Trucial states over which Britain had long held sway. At a time when state failure and fragmentation has become synonymous with much of the Middle East and where the very idea of sovereignty and legitimacy have become contested issues, this comparative historical study of the varied British attempts at state creation on the Arabian peninsula offers important insights into the limits of external ambition, as well as the possibilities that great power retrenchment offered to the peoples of the region. The legacy of British influence in Aden and Abu Dhabi still very much resonates today; this volume explains why. This book was originally published as a special issue of Middle Eastern Studies.

Book Summary: Building a foundational understanding of the digital, Logic of the Digital reveals a unique digital ontology. Beginning from formal and technical characteristics, especially the binary code at the core of all digital technologies, Aden Evens traces the pathways along which the digital domain of abstract logic encounters the material, human world. How does a code using only 0s and 1s give rise to the vast range of applications and information that constitutes a great and growing portion of our world? Evens' analysis shows how any encounter between the actual and the digital must cross an ontological divide, a gap between the productive materiality of the human world and the reductive abstraction of the binary code. Logic of the Digital examines the distortions of this ontological crossing, considering the formal abstraction that persists in exemplary digital technologies and techniques such as the mouse, the Web, the graphical user interface, and the development of software. One crucial motive for this research lies in the paradoxical issue of creativity in relation to digital technologies: the ontology of abstraction leaves little room for the unpredictable or accidental that is essential to creativity, but digital technologies are nevertheless patently creative. Evens inquires into the mechanisms by which the ostensibly sterile binary code can lend itself to such fecund cultural production. Through clarification of the digital's ontological foundation, Evens points to a significant threat to creativity lurking in the nature of the digital and so generates a basis for an ethics of digital practice. Examining the bits that give the digital its ontology, exploring the potentials and limitations of programming, and using gaming as an ideal test of digital possibility, Logic of the Digital guides future practices and shapes academic research in the digital.

Book Summary: This is the first detailed account of the confrontation between Britain and President Nasser of Egypt over the Colony of Aden and the surrounding protected states, prior to British withdrawal in 1967. Paying particular attention to the conflicting goals of Arab nationalism and British imperialism, it is argued that Britain’s motivation for this campaign was not solely material but was partly derived from a determination to contain Nasser’s influence and to guarantee a continuation of Britain’s role in influencing the politics of the Arabian peninsula. Mawby argues that a significant problem for the British was the decision to undertake a new imperial adventure in Aden at a time when British economic and military power was on the wane, whilst support for the nationalist struggles in the Middle East and the United Nations was increasing. He goes on to suggest that British policy and the conduct of military campaigns facilitated the emergence of a radical brand of Arab politics in southwest Arabia. By demonstrating the manner in which the rise and fall of British imperialism was telescoped into a short period in the late 1950s and early 1960s, this volume provides an important insight into the unique and unacknowledged place of Aden in the history of British decolonization.

Book Summary: During the early 1960s the Cold War reached its climax. Britain's dwindling power in the Middle East was under siege from Arab nationalism, the Communist bloc and from American designs in the region. Aden, with its strategic military base and old Protectorate buffer zone, was soon the main battleground. The 1962 Egyptian-inspired coup in the neighbouring Kingdom of North Yemen further tightened the noose. So began a bitter and bloody insurgency war in South Arabia. British regular an special forces were soon pitted against growing and formidable insurgency forces, fighting both a war in the mountains and an urban conflict in the backstreets of Aden. Intelligence agencies vied for control of 'hearts and minds'. The British launched a clandestine war in Yemen to keep their enemies at bay. But still the situation in Aden spiralled out of control, culminating in a bloody slaughter in 1967. In that November, the British Army finally withdrew from South Arabia. Aden Insurgency is the extraordinary story of Britain's last colonial conflict. Using a wide range of recently released archive and eye-witness accounts, the author charts the collapse of the South Arabian state. Set against a background of ruthless political ambition, these events shaped the Yemen of today.

Book Summary: Sedimentation and Tectonics in Rift Basins: Red Sea - Gulf of Aden presents new case studies and synthesises the results of recent research on the sedimentological evolution of the Red Sea - Gulf of Aden rift system. This rift basin is generally regarded as the best natural geological laboratory in the world in which to study the processes of rift formation. Uplift of the rift margins in an arid climate results in extensive three-dimensional exposures of pre- and syn-rift strata and associated structures. These serve as analogues for the understanding and hydrocarbon exploration of deeper buried rift-systems on continental margins such as the North Sea and the Atlantic margins. The Red Sea - Gulf of Aden rift is also exceptional in that its stratigraphy spans all stages from pre-rift environments, syn-rift continental to marine environments through the rift to drift transition to post-rift sea-floor spreading. The work is arranged in eight sections: following a review of the sedimentology and stratigraphy of rift basins, the magmatism and structural evolution of the Red Sea - Gulf of Aden rift is reviewed. Subsequently, new case studies are presented of the early rifting environment, syn-rift sedimentation, tectonics and diagenesis, evaporites and salt tectonics. Post-rift sediments of the axial trough are then discussed along with studies of reefs, coastal zone and shelf sediments, and the tectonic geomorphology of the rift margin escarpment. This work results from extensive new research in the rift basin largely carried out under collaborative research projects by European and Middle Eastern geologists. It will be an invaluable reference work for geoscientists in the hydrocarbon, groundwater and mineral extraction industries, as well as for researchers in university departments of earth sciences, mining and physical geography.

Book Summary: Abdi Ismail Samatar provides a clear and foundational history of Somalia at the dawn of the country’s independence when Africa’s first democrats appeared. While many African countries were dominated by authoritarian rulers when they entered the postcolonial era—and scholars have assumed this as a standard feature of political leadership on the continent—Somalia had an authentic democratic leadership. Samatar’s political biography of Aden A. Osman and Abdirazak H. Hussen breaks the stereotype of brutal African tyranny. Samatar discusses the framing of democracy in Somalia following the years of control by fascist Italy, the formation of democratic organizations during the political struggle, and the establishment of democratic foundations in the new nation. Even though this early state of affairs did not last, these leaders left behind a strong democratic legacy that may provide a model of good governance for the rest of the continent.

Book Summary: This book offers comprehensive coverage of various aspects of financial accountability around the EU budget – how it is spent via policies, how institutions engage in checking policy performance (what taxpayers’ money actually delivers), and therein, the issues of monitoring, controlling, auditing, scrutinising and communicating budgetary expenditure. Presenting conceptual and theoretical approaches including financial accountability, learning, multi-level governance, implementation and throughput legitimacy, it looks at EU institutions (European Parliament, European Court of Auditors, European Ombudsman, European Public Prosecutor’s Office) and national bodies (supreme audit institutions at the national level), examining their contact with the EU budget. It details the historical development of accountability mechanisms (the ‘statement of assurance’, financial corrections, and parliamentary oversight by the Budgetary Control Committee (CONT)), and examines policy areas such as those of agriculture, social policy and cohesion (including Structural Funds and the Common Agricultural Policy), exploring the challenges of financial accountability in practice. Given the recent introduction of non-budgetary financial instruments and tools only partly financed by the EU budget, it sheds light on new burgeoning areas such as the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) and the European Fund for Strategic Investment (EFSI) and the challenges they bring for ensuring the accountability of public money. This book will be of key interest to scholars and students of audit and evaluation, budgetary spending and financial control and, more broadly, public administration, public policy and EU institutions and politics.

Book Summary: How does prepping mesh with the Christian faith? Is prepping actually a sign of a lack of faith in God? The Faithful Prepper seeks to not only answer such questions, but also takes a look at a number of other post-disaster scenarios and some of the things a Christian will have to think about in each of them. Such scenarios include: •How do you incorporate charity into post-disaster life without compromising your family’s safety? •How do you live with others in confined circumstances in a very dangerous environment? •What is the role of the church post-disaster, if any? •Who do you let stay at your retreat post-disaster, and who do you turn away? •How do you live a prepared lifestyle, yet not one dominated by fear? •When bad stuff happens post-disaster, how do you cope? •How do you care for those who have special needs post-disaster? •And much more… Aden Tate is a Christian writer who lives in The Beautiful South.

Book Summary: This book details the Soviet Military Liaison Mission (SMLM) in West Germany and the U.S. Military Liaison Mission (USMLM) in East Germany as microcosms of the Cold War strategic intelligence and counterintelligence landscape. Thirty years since the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Soviet and U.S. Military Liaison Missions are all but forgotten. Their operation was established by a post-WWII Allied occupation forces' agreement, and missions had relative freedom to travel and collect intelligence throughout East and West Germany from 1947 until 1990. This book addresses Cold War intelligence and counterintelligence in a manner that provides a broad historical perspective and then brings the reader to a never-before documented artifact of Cold War history. The book details the intelligence/counterintelligence dynamic that was among the most emblematic of the Cold War. Ultimately, the book addresses a saga that remains one of the true Cold War enigmas.

Book Summary: Surveillance Countermeasures By: Aden C. Magee In today’s prolific hostile threat environment, surveillance countermeasures expertise is a necessary component of security knowledge. The wide range of increasingly unconstrained threats to the personal privacy and security of average citizens include common criminals and stalkers, private and corporate investigators, government-sponsored espionage and other covert agencies, and international crime and terrorist organizations. In virtually all cases, the elements that threaten individual, corporate, or national security conduct surveillance operations to further their objectives, or as the primary means to an end Surveillance countermeasures are actions taken by an individual or security detail to identify the presence of surveillance and, if necessary, to elude or evade the individual or group conducting the surveillance. Understanding how the surveillance threat thinks and reacts is the basis of effective surveillance countermeasures. This manual details surveillance countermeasures concepts, techniques, and procedures that are proven effective against the spectrum of surveillance capabilities ranging from the very basic to the world’s most sophisticated. This manual now supersedes the previous industry standards as the authoritative resource on surveillance countermeasures principles, procedures, and practices. This manual is a compilation of the most relevant details from two of the all-time classics and best-sellers in the genre – Surveillance Countermeasures and Countering Hostile Surveillance. It also draws precise threat/surveillance perspective from another of the all-time greats – Secrets of Surveillance. The fact that this manual consolidates the knowledge derived from these three unparalleled classics demonstrates that this manual now represents the full-spectrum amalgam of surveillance countermeasures methodologies ranging from the foundational baseline of tactics and techniques to the most advanced concepts and procedures. This revised instant classic for the genre also includes many additional details and special-interest topics to form an informational/educational resource like no other. Written by one of the rare breed who has actually stalked the streets and stood in the shadows, this manual presents surveillance countermeasures tradecraft from the theoretical to the practical levels in terms of the “art” and “science.” The execution of techniques as components of methodical procedures to effectively manipulate and exploit a hostile surveillance effort is representative of a security professional or security-conscious individual operating at the master’s level of surveillance countermeasures tradecraft. The information and instruction in this manual begins with the basics and then takes the practitioner to that level execution.

The young man huddled at the side of the road needs help. And Dare is happy to provide assistance in reclaiming his belongings and offers his guesthouse to rent…and a job recommendation. But someone is after Aden…. Someone terrifyingly determined wants to take him away from his happy life and the growing attraction between Aden and Dare. Soon, the sheriff’s department, the FBI, Aden’s mother, and two new dogs and cats are trying to protect Aden. Will it be enough to protect Aden and Dare from a madman?
