As World War II ended, few Americans in government or universities knew much about the Soviet Union. As David Engerman shows in this book, a network of scholars, soldiers, spies, and philanthropists created an enterprise known as Soviet Studies to fill in this dangerous gap in American knowledge. This group brought together some of the nation's best minds from the left, right, and center, colorful and controversial individuals ranging from George Kennan to Margaret Mead to Zbigniew Brzezinski, not to mention historians Sheila Fitzpatrick and Richard Pipes. Together they created the knowledge that helped fight the Cold War and define Cold War thought. Soviet Studies became a vibrant intellectual enterprise, studying not just the Soviet threat, but Soviet society and culture at a time when many said that these were contradictions in terms, as well as Russian history and literature. And this broad network, Engerman argues, forever changed the relationship between the government and academe, connecting the Pentagon with the ivory tower in ways that still matter today.

"Rage Against the Machine has been kicking against the system since 1992- and selling millions of records on the way. Never preaching or earnest, the four-piece band melded the attitude of rap with the sound of metal and found a winning formula with songs that discuss issues as wide-ranging as the Mexican zapatista struggle, America's militaristic foreign policy and institutionalised racism of governments. Their confrontational style is a key theme of Joel McIver's frank biography, combing the enthusiasm of a fan with a willingness to explore the serious issues at the heat of Rage's political message. Then, in 2009, RATM achieved the impossible by defeating Simon Cowell and his X factor contestant Joe McElderry to the position of UK Christmas number one. Thanks to a social media campaign by fans "Killing in the name" a song from their 1992 debut album, hit the top and won them thousands of new fans"-- Back cover.
Whether you realize it or not, God's people are involved in a spiritual battle against the forces of darkness. Satan has come as a thief "To Steal", "To Kill", & "To Destroy". God never intended for His people to be fearful of Satan, his demonic attacks, or threats. Jesus death, burial, and resurrection gave believers victory over Satan and his demonic influences in their lives. Through Jesus life's example we can cast out demons, rebuke Satan, and take authority over the powers of darkness. God has equipped every believer with all the necessary weapons and armor to defeat the enemy. I admonish you to discover the truth through God's word and begin to declare the word over your life so that every chain of bondage, generational curse, bad habit(s), and old mind-sets can be broken off your life.
