This second volume contains seventeen cases focusing on defence procurement and logistics issues that will provide an excellent learning opportunity to a variety of readers. This wideranging audience will include military personnel, those on defence education and training programmes, employees of the defence industry, those in defence agencies and those engaged in defence and security-related research (an example being under- and postgraduate students on international politics and strategic studies courses).
This book explains the impact that some key legal decisions may have on your daily procurement practices: whilst it aims at being readable and at times amusing, it hopes to set some of the requirements of the Procurement Regulations into a practical context and help those tendering to navigate their way through what to some must at first seem like a legal minefield. It isn’t, but it does demand thought and care.
It has been 50 years since the appalling murder of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas, Texas, on the 22nd November 1963. Large numbers of interested individuals still seek the truth as to what transpired that day.
Dealey Plaza UK is a group that researches the assassination with a view to finding that truth ... a truth the American Government and mainstream media have deliberately avoided for the past 50 years.
In writing this new introduction, the author has remained faithful to the aims of the previous volume that was published in 2008. The new volume has tracked some subsequent developments and reorientations in the subject which reflect social changes. As a result, the content of each chapter has been broadened and expanded.
In updating the earlier volume, a decision was made to retain and rework the sections covering founding theory and early research since one of the aims of the book remains to provide a sense of how the subject has developed historically as a mirror of social change.
Compared to the previous volume, the author has integrated a range of selective quotations. Also, to assist the reader in following up a broader range of resources, the original list of recommended books has been expanded into a short bibliography and key referencing has been provided.
