The Letters of John and Abigail Adams provides an insightful record of American life before, during, and after the Revolution; the letters also reveal the intellectually and emotionally fulfilling relationship between John and Abigail that lasted fifty-four years and withstood historical upheavals, long periods apart, and personal tragedies. Covering key moments in American history - the Continental Congress, the drafting of the Declaration of Independence, the Revolutionary War, and John Adams's diplomatic missions to Europe - the letters reveal the concerns of a couple living during a period of explosive change, from smallpox and British warships to raising children, paying taxes, the state of women, and the emerging concepts of American democracy.

“You’ll treat me like a friend, right?”—Humam al-Balawi on the phone to his handler Ali bin Zeid before arriving at Camp Chapman
December 30, 2009 was one of the deadliest days in the history of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Seven CIA agents and a Jordanian Intelligence Officer were killed at Camp Chapman, the CIA’s forward operating base in Khost, Afghanistan, which bordered Pakistan’s tribal region. The individual responsible for the suicide bombing, Humam Khalil al-Balawi, was a trusted intelligence source that promised Washington access to the inner circle of al-Qaeda. Instead, al-Balawi delivered a devastating blow to the Global War on Terror and the intelligence-sharing network that drove it.
The Triple Agent is one of the first publications to provide a detailed account of the events that resulted in the Camp Chapman bombing. In a gripping narrative constructed through interviews with U.S. and Jordanian intelligence officials, the families of the victims, and the family of Humam al-Balawi, Joby Warrick recounts the combination of human and institutional factors that enabled a man loyal to Jihad to gain the trust of intelligence agencies and carry out a martyrdom operation at a secure CIA installation.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK
Three months later, al-Balawi was sent on an all-expenses paid trip to Pakistan. His job was to provide bin Zeid with information that would enable the Mukhabarat and the CIA to track wanted terrorists in Pakistan’s tribal region. The information al-Balawi provided captured the attention of the highest echelons of Washington; President Barack Obama requested updates on the work of the informant.
Within months of arriving in Pakistan, al-Balawi had managed to gain the trust of the leading commanders of the Tehrik-i-Taliban, the alliance of Islamic militants in Pakistan’s tribal region, who introduced him to al-Qaeda’s inner circle. When al-Balawi sent bin Zeid a video of himself in the presence of al-Qaeda’s operational mastermind Ayman al-Zawahiri, Washington demanded a meeting with the Mukhabarat informant. Camp Chapman in Khost Afghanistan, within miles of the only open border crossing to Pakistan, was identified as the fateful location...

However, poor strategizing, blockades, and lack of military might led to several failed attempts to overcome the Union armies infiltrating the Florida coast. Left to defend themselves from the enemy with little help from their Confederate compatriots, Floridians grew increasingly disenchanted with their government’s dismissive attitude. Over the course of the war, they were caught between survival and secession. With little resources remaining, survival was the only way for the state to maintain itself.
Left disillusioned, the embattled Milton took matters into his own hands, refusing to submit to the impending surrender secession and the ignominy of defeat.
Warrior at Heart is an in-depth study of Florida’s Southern history during the Civil War. Historian John Adams gives detailed analyses of not only the economic dynamics reasons for the South to wage war, but also the events that shaped John Milton’s role in the war effort.
The book also describes in clear terms how students can analyse data, interpret results and link these to the literature review and hence their own contribution. It sets out a range of fundamental ideas in research methods, such as deductivism and inductivism, and explains why methodology is not the same as method.
In this second edition every chapter has been re-written to be more readable and also to include more examples. The authors have also added a real student research proposal and a multiple-choice test with answers for the readers to test their own understanding of the ideas in the book. The book has been designed to illustrate research tools in a clear and accessible manner through chapters on such topics as formulating research, research design, data analysis and writing up the research results.
