There is less oil than the world requires, and that will make some people rich and others dead. Career CIA field operative Bob Barnes is sorting out his midcareer issues--his bosses want him quietly confined to a desk job. Bryan Woodman, an expatriate in Geneva, becomes the financial adviser to idealistic Gulf Prince Nasir. Corporate lawyer Bennett Holiday is finessing the questionable merger of two powerful U.S. oil companies. In Prince Nasir's country, meanwhile, young Pakistani laborer Wasim succumbs to the lure of radical Islam, seeking refuge from the dusty oil fields and crowded hostels in the tranquility of a madrasa. In the labyrinthine, interconnected worlds of espionage and politics, international finance and law, oil and radical Islam, motives and convictions can shape lives, or destroy them

Traffic( Visual )

4 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traffic is a mural of a war being fought and lost. In a culture devoted to instant gratification and the quick fix, it poses unanswerable questions about greed, corruption, economic inequity, pleasure, self-medication, dependency, and addiction. The stories of a well-meaning politician with a wayward daughter, a rich suburban homemaker who sees her comfortable life hijacked by two earnest DEA agents, and a conscientious and honorable Mexican police officer illustrate the difficulties of waging this war against people who are essentially members of the family. How do you combat human frailty, human nature, and the basic human desire to take the edge off? Are we all not just doomed to repeat our mistakes, but--perversely--willing?

The Alamo by Frank T Thompson( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and Polish and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the Alamo fell in the early morning of March 6, 1836, the death of the Alamo defenders has come to symbolize courage and sacrifice for the cause of liberty. The memories of James Bowie, Davy Crockett, and William B. Travis are as powerful today as when the Texan Army routed Santa Anna to the cry "Remember the Alamo!" This book is more than a tribute to those who fell defending the mission. It is a thoroughly researched, vividly illustrated, objective description of the circumstances building up to and leading from that stand. By using contemporary writings, this history describes the political and military organizations of both sides, the weapons and equipment available to them, and the enduringly famous personalities involved, creating a vivid picture of this dramatic battle and the period in which it was fought
