A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away . . .
Luke Skywalker lived and worked on his uncle's farm on the remote planet of Tatooine—and he was bored beyond belief. He yearned for adventures out among the stars, adventures that would take him beyond the farthest galaxies to distant and alien worlds.
But Luke gets more than he bargained for when he intercepts a cryptic message from a beautiful princess held captive by a dark and powerful warlord. Luke doesn't know who she is, but he knows he has to save her—and soon, because time is running out.
Armed only with courage and with the lightsaber that had been his father's, Luke is catapulted into the middle of the most savage space war ever—and headed straight for a desperate encounter on the enemy battle station known as the Death Star. . . .
Eloquently combining theory and practice, leading scholars from the fields of political science, law and philosophy have been brought together to provide an essential overview of some of the major ethical, legal and political issues with regard to protecting civilians caught up in modern inter- and intra-state conflicts. In doing so, they examine what is being done, and what can be done, to make soldiers more aware of their responsibilities in this area under international law and the ethics of war, and more able to respond appropriately to the challenges that will confront them in the field.
'Protecting Civilians During Violent Conflict' presents a clear-eyed look at the dilemmas facing regular combatants as they confront enemies in the modern battlespace, and especially the complications arising from the new styles of conflict where enemy and civilian populations merge.
In this book the authors explore the practice of battlefield bioethics, medical neutrality and treatment of the wounded, enhancement technologies for war fighters, the potential risks of dual-use biotechnologies, patient rights for active duty personnel, military medical research and military medical ethics education in the 21st Century.
principles of The One Minute Negotiator in mind, you’ll walk away with what
you want and leave the other person happier for having done the deal.”
–Dave Ramsey, bestselling author of The Total Money Makeover
Negotiation impacts every aspect of our lives, from the deals we strike on the job, to our relationships
with family members and neighbors, to the transactions we make as customers. Yet most people
do anything they can to avoid negotiating—it makes them uncomfortable, nervous, even frightened.
This plague of negotiaphobia is what Don Hutson and George Lucas are here to remedy.
Hutson and Lucas tell the tale of Jay Baxter, who sells more than anyone else in his company but
finds himself in trouble because his profit margins are so slim—he’s giving too much away to close
the deal. Enter the One Minute Negotiator, who teaches him a three step negotiating process that
not only helps him make more profit but can be applied anywhere, on the job or off. The key to the
process is flexibility. No two negotiations are alike—one strategy cannot fit all. The One Minute
Negotiator teaches you four viable strategies and shows you how to choose the one best
suited to the situation, your own inclinations, and the strategy being used by the other side.
Besides the obvious benefits, conquering negotiaphobia will reduce your stress level. You’ll
never walk away thinking about what you should have asked or what you might have gotten.
Instead, with the tools Hutson and Lucas provide, you can confidently and consistently guide any
negotiation to the best possible conclusion.
