This book examines the strategies pursued by the Colonies and the other combatants in the American War for Independence, placing the conflict in its proper global context.
Many do not realize the extent to which the 1775 colonial rebellion against British rule escalated into a global conflict. Collectively, this volume examines the strategies pursued by the American Colonies, Great Britain, France, Spain, and Holland, and the League of Armed Neutrality, placing the military, naval, and diplomatic elements of the struggle in their proper global context. Moreover, assessing how each nation prosecuted their respective wars provides lessons for current students of strategic studies and military and naval history.
This book will be of great interest to students of strategic studies, American history, Military History and political science in general.

In my twenties, I started to write poetry in the late 1970's and I found it to be a healing force and an expressive outlet, more than my daily occupation as an artist and designer. My poems have been published in Provincetown Magazine, selected by my friend and poet, Dennis Rhodes. My erotic short stories were published monthly in the Lambda Classic Car publication, The Turnpike Cruiser. Both venues were completed in the years I lived there from 1997 to 2003. My mother, Theresa, was also influential in my interest in prose, as her poems were beautifully written and heartfelt. The collection of poems reflects on an isolated childhood growing up gay in New York City during a conservative era of the 1950's and early 1960's. Others deal with personal losses, and directly about the people who have made an important difference in my life. I've included in addition to the poems, fictional stories of an erotic nature concerning men and their long term, and also fleeting, relationships. Some are poignant tales, some mystical and ironic. All tie in with their love affair with vintage cars that are set in a time span from the 1950's to the Millenium.
This book examines the nature and consequences of strategic competition between the US and China, which affects the global security landscape and the emerging security architecture across the broader Asia-Pacific region. The author illustrates the evolution of Sino-US security interactions from the anti-Soviet alliance, to temporary marginalization, to eventual strategic competition and examines cases that could potentially escalate into greater conflicts. The analysis offers tantalizing glimpses into both the dangers and promising opportunities presented by this strategic fork in the road, making it of great interest to researchers and scholars in the fields of international relations and security studies.
