On Thursday, July 28th, 2016, Beijing announced that the Russian Navy would be conducting joint naval exercises with the People's Liberation Army Navy in the South China Sea in September of that year. The announcement followed by sixteen days the ruling by the World Court that it had rejected China's claim to sovereignty across a vast expanse of the South China Sea. Competing claims to portions of the body of water with Taiwan, the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam and Brunei were left unresolved. The exercises were conducted without threat or provocation. At the end of the exercises an announcement was made that a similar exercise would take place in September of 2017 in the Pacific Ocean. Shortly thereafter, the United States Navy made it known that it would be conducting naval maneuvers in the Pacific in 2017, also in September. What the Navy did not announce was that the new, state-of-the-art guided-missile destroyer USS Zumwalt, accompanied by an escort including Ticonderoga class cruisers and Arleigh Burke class destroyers, would depart from its home port of San Diego to lead those maneuvers.

China and Russia, two giants dominating the Eurasian landmass, share a history of understanding and misunderstanding whose nuances are not well appreciated by outsiders. In his interpretation of this relationship from the Russian point of view, Alexander Lukin shows how over the course of three centuries China has seemed alternately to threaten, mystify, imitate, mirror, and rival its northern neighbor. Lukin traces not only the changing dynamics of Russian-Chinese relations but the ways in which Russia's images of China more profoundly reflected Russia's self-perception and its perceptions of the West as well. As both Russia and China take distinctive approaches to political and economic development and integration in the twenty-first century global economy, this reinterpretation of their relationship is timely and valuable not only to historians but to all students of international affairs.

Command Authority sees the return of Tom Clancy's greatest hero, Jack Ryan. Decades ago, when he was a young CIA analyst, President Jack Ryan, Sr. was sent on what was supposed to be a simple support mission to investigate the death of an operative who had been looking into suspicious banking activities at a Swiss bank. Ryan's dogged tenacity uncovered not only financial deceit, but also the existence of a KGB assassin, code-named Zenith. He was never able to find the killer. But in the shadowy world of covert operations, nothing stays hidden forever. In the present, a new strongman has emerged in the ever-chaotic Russian republic - the enigmatic President Valeri Volodin. His rise to power was meteoric, but shrouded in deception and treachery. The foundations of his personal empire are built on a bloody secret from his past, and he will eliminate anyone who comes close to that truth. For he has set in motion a plot to return Russia to its former glory and might, with the rest of the world once again trembling in fear of the mighty Bear. When an old friend of the Ryans is poisoned by a radioactive agent, the trail leads to Russia. And Jack Ryan, Jr. - aided by his compatriots John Clark and the covert warriors of the secretive Campus - must delve into an international conflict thirty years in the making, and finish what his father started. With President Ryan fighting a desperate campaign to thwart Russian aggression, and his son fighting a silent war against a ruthless foe, the chances for global conflict grow ever greater - and the possibility of survival may soon be lost for all . . . Tom Clancy's Command Authority is a brand new full-throttle all-action adventure, and follows Threat Vector and Locked On as the newest Jack Ryan novel. Praise for Tom Clancy: 'Exhilarating. No other novelist is giving so full a picture of modern conflict' Sunday Times 'The inventor of the techno-thriller' Daily Telegraph

But they're unsure if she's an asset – or a threat. To buy time, she joins Prince Tecuman's warband of outcasts and heads south, to help him gain his crown. She wants to discover her true place in the world, but instead heads into the jaws of a fierce new conflict. Civil war threatens as Tecuman and his twin sister battle for the throne, for only one can rule. Yet whoever triumphs will carry a heavy burden, as a great doom has been foreseen that will fall across their whole world. And soon Maniye finds herself at the heart of a political storm.
