Air liaison officers (ALOs) play an important interservice role as U.S. Air Force officers collocated with U.S. Army units, providing air-ground support and advising ground commanders on related issues. Under the current system, ALO duty is restricted to career aviators, and this approach seems to meet all the requirements of both services. However, there are compelling reasons for the Air Force to consider a dedicated ALO career field, including better proficiency and improved continuity from one ALO to the next, less time lost to training, increased ALO career longevity, and potentially impr

From the author of the acclaimed Good Muslim, Bad Muslim, this is the first analysis of the crisisin Darfur to consider the events of the last few years within the context of Sudan’s history, andto critically examine the efficacy of the world’s response to the crisis.Illuminating the deeply rooted causes of the current conflict, Mahmood Mamdani explains how British colonialism tribalised Darfur, dividing its population into so-called ‘native’ and ‘settler’tribes, and creating homelands for the former at the expense of the latter.

Christoph Friedrich Blumhardt (1842-1919) was an original. He was at home nowhere – he belonged neither to church circles nor to secular ones. He was an embarrassment to Christians and non-Christians alike. He seemed to challenge and disconcert everyone. And yet he possessed a strange confidence in God’s history; a confidence that inspired hope in many, and continues to do so even today. In this newly revised volume, Lejuene gives a short summary of Blumhardt’s life followed by nineteen of his thought-provoking sermons.
