Stories from Quechan Oral Literature by Abraham M Halpern( )

18 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 918 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Quechan are a Yuman people who have traditionally lived along the lower part of the Colorado River in California and Arizona. They are well known as warriors, artists, and traders, and they also have a rich oral tradition. The stories in this volume were told by tribal elders in the 1970s and early 1980s. The eleven narratives in this volume take place at the beginning of time and introduce the reader to a variety of traditional characters, including the infamous Coyote and also Kwayúu the giant, Old Lady Sanyuuxáv and her twin sons, and the Man Who Bothered Ants. This book makes a long-awaited contribution to the oral literature and mythology of the American Southwest, and its format and organization are of special interest. Narratives are presented in the original language and in the storytellers' own words. A prosodically-motivated broken-line format captures the rhetorical structure and local organization of the oral delivery and calls attention to stylistic devices such as repetition and syntactic parallelism. Facing-page English translation provides a key to the original Quechan for the benefit of language learners. The stories are organized into "story complexes", that is, clusters of narratives with overlapping topics, characters, and events, told from diverse perspectives. In presenting not just stories but story complexes, this volume captures the art of storytelling and illuminates the complexity and interconnectedness of an important body of oral literature. Stories from Quechan Oral Literature provides invaluable reading for anyone interested in Native American cultural heritage and oral traditions more generally."--Résumé de l'éditeur

Communist strategy in Laos by Abraham M Halpern( Book )

3 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An analysis of the military actions in Laos in the summer and fall of 1959 and of their political-military background. The events are treated as a special case of limited war. Contrary to normal expectations, the initiative was on the side of the Free World. Communist actions were fully coordinated among three partners but were reactive in nature. Both sides operated under severe restraints, which kept the action to a minimum level. The status quo at the termination of real combat was not wholly satisfactory to either side. Military action could recur in this area under varying circumstances

Communist China's demands on the world by Abraham M Halpern( Book )

4 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The attempt was made to identify goals and methods of Chinese foreign policy. It is suggested that the methods tend to form patterns whose variations through time correlate with changes in the goals pursued. Major changes in the grand design since 1949 have occurred twice--in 1951 and 1957. The controlling factor in such shifts has been the perception of the world distribution of power. The Chinese Communists view the distribution of power basically as bipolar. Depending on their analysis of the bipolar power basically as bipolar. Depending on their analysis of the bipolar power balance, their grand design may identify only enemies outside the Communist bloc or may identify some non-Communist countries as potential temporary allies, but ultimately does not tolerate an independent third power factor
The Chinese communist line on neutralism by Abraham M Halpern( Book )

7 editions published between 1960 and 1961 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This research memorandum is part of RAND's continuing analysis of Chinese foreign policy as it relates to military strategy and basic American interests. It analyzes the manner in which the Communist Chinese government made use of appeals to Asian neutralism in the period since November, 1957. The manipulation of neutralism is treated as an important aspect of the basic Sino-Soviet policy problem of the time, that of prudent and effective use of a position of strength. Besides aiming at weakening the United States military position in Asia, the Chinese during 1960 formulated the goal of overthrowing imperialism on a world-wide scale. The study concludes with a postscript on the Moscow Declarations of December 5, 1960, and their possible effect on future Chinese Communist foreign policy. (Author)

The foreign policy uses of the Chinese revolutionary model by Abraham M Halpern( Book )

8 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American student of Chinese Communist affairs must rely heavily on the recorded public utterances of representatives of the regime. The interpretation of such data is of course subject to a number of uncertainties. The ways in which public political statements can be used to deceive, to mislead, or to bargain are not always obvious. Even when a statement embodies a real calculation or the speaker's genuine perception of the world, the motive for making it may lie in the passing demands of small scale tactics, or it may be of extreme subjective import to the speaker. The major purpose of this paper has been to explore the contribution of the analysis of overt communication to the understanding of the political processes of a closed society. (Author)
