Lu Mountain Book12 of the series The Lodging for the Rose (Large-Format Edition - Magazine Style) The novel is fiction, but its logic is not. When being forced to flee 'paradise' the protagonists start a new life in China, out of reach to the West. But China isn't the Golden Shore of Peace where they find tranquility and rest. The Principle of Universal Love widens the challenge into the greater challenge to uplift the world. The protagonists move forward on this front. They do not flinch, nor do they say "it is impossible go further." China unfolds its heart as one of the few countries in the world that still embraces the principle of progress. It sees boundless horizons and reaches for them. The light of universal love that once shone brightly in Europe and later in America, but has dimmed in those places, still glows brightly in China. May we re-awake to this light that we all have, that we are. Here unfolds the hope of the world. It unfolds in the novel as China's gift to humanity, even while the protagonists uplift China. The novel presented here is the final book, Book 12 (Episode 8) of the epic series of novels, The Lodging for the Rose. - Published by Cygni Communications Ltd.

In this fascinating inquiry into the Soviet retreat from the Third World, Melvin A. Goodman analyzes GorbacheV's policy from the standpoint of disillusionment with the Third World. He cites, among other reasons for the retreat, the diminished strategic significance of the Third World to current Soviet leadership, the limitations for Soviet power projection in distant areas, and the dilemmas in MoscoW's relations with Third World regimes. Goodman contends that GorbacheV's foreign policy shift to achieve a more stable international arena and a less militant Soviet stance allowed Moscow to focus on its internal economic problems. This volume provides the first exploration of Afghanistan as a watershed in Soviet thinking on the Third World and discusses the current Soviet emphasis on conflict management and resolution in Third World states--particularly Afghanistan, Angola, Ethiopia, and Nicaragua. GorbacheV's Retreat explains how cooperation with the United States improves MoscoW's image in the West and tends to stabilize Third World flash points. Up-to-the-minute data on Soviet military and economic assistance to the Third World as well as Third World responses to the new Soviet policy are also presented. The volume examines Soviet retrenchment and retreat in the Third World; analyzes GorbacheV's decisions relative to Third World relationships; zeroes in on the withdrawal from Afghanistan; explores some of the reasons for Soviet power limitations; and assesses the regional implications of GorbacheV's New Political Thinking. GorbacheV's Retreat then looks at Soviet power projection and crisis management, Soviet military and economic aid, and Soviet retreat in the 1990s. The volume will be particularly useful to undergraduate and graduate courses in foreign policy and international relations as a discussion of the impact of the new Soviet policy in the Third World and the consequences for U.S.-Soviet relations. Regional studies specialists will find its in-depth analyses of the limits on Soviet actions in the Third World cogent and timely.
