📒Challenging The Pacific Spanish Empire ✍ Elizabeth Del Pilar Montanez Sanabria
📝Challenging the Pacific Spanish Empire Book Synopsis : This dissertation examines the impact of pirates in the Viceroyalty of Peru, the strongest Spanish presence in the Pacific Rim, between 1570 and 1750. I argue that pirates -as Spanish authorities named to all foreigner, mostly Protestant, who assaulted their possessions- were not merely a disrupting factor, as they frequently attacked populations and ships, but actors that undermined Spanish dominion by aligning with local population, including Indians and escaped black slaves, and opening the Pacific, known as the "Spanish Lake", to other nations. English and Dutch pirates focused their targets on Tierra Firme (the Isthmus of Panama) and the Strait of Magellan (modern-day Chile), as these were the natural 'locks' that protected the access to the South Sea, or Pacific Ocean. My dissertation proves that pirates opened the South Sea from the peripheries of the Viceroyalty of Peru, made it an international ocean by the eighteenth century, and challenged the Spanish right over the dominion of the sea. Through this analysis, I seek to contribute to the understanding of the complex phenomenon of piracy and its repercussions in the Spanish empire and the Viceroyalty of Peru, the understanding of the role of peripheries as spaces of negotiation and independence between local populations and outsiders, and the construction of this part of the Pacific as an extension of the Atlantic world.

📝Trade Commerce and Security Challenges in the Asia Pacific Region Book Synopsis : The Asia Pacific region is a dynamic but complex area where much of the history of the 21st Century will be scripted. Although the strategic and economic importance of the region continues to grow, challenges of reconciling national interests with regional and global interests continue. Security architectures during the Cold War were based primarily on military alliances. However the need today is to base these architectures on shared values, interests and challenges. We need not only define but believe in these universal values. This book brings out this important aspect of this region and explains them briefly.
📒Challenging The Secret Government ✍ Kathryn S. Olmsted
📝Challenging the Secret Government Book Synopsis : Just four months after Richard Nixon's resignation, New York Times reporter Seymour Hersh unearthed a new case of government abuse of power: the CIA had launched a domestic spying program of Orwellian proportions against American dissidents during the Vietnam War. The country's best investigative journalists and members of Congress quickly mobilized to probe a scandal that seemed certain to rock the foundations of this secret government. Subsequent investigations disclosed that the CIA had plotted to kill foreign leaders and that the FBI had harassed civil rights and student groups. Some called the scandal 'son of Watergate.' Many observers predicted that the investigations would lead to far-reaching changes in the intelligence agencies. Yet, as Kathryn Olmsted shows, neither the media nor Congress pressed for reforms. For all of its post-Watergate zeal, the press hesitated to break its long tradition of deference in national security coverage. Congress, too, was unwilling to challenge the executive branch in national security matters. Reports of the demise of the executive branch were greatly exaggerated, and the result of the 'year of intelligence' was a return to the status quo. American History/Journalism
