Admiral John "Black Jack" Geary has finally learned the nature of the secret fleet and the fate of Admiral Bloch. The Alliance government's plan to ensure security by using warships controlled entirely by artificial intelligence has resulted in atrocities at two star systems that may reignite the war with the Syndicate Worlds, and now the malfunctioning robotic warships also threaten Alliance star systems. His attempts to pursue a dark ship force to their base are frustrated when they vanish into the Alliance hypernet. The Alliance military is threatened with uncertainty, confusion, and a fear of betrayal as segments of the Alliance government attempt to continue to conceal the existence of the dark ships and the government's role in creating them. The Syndicate Worlds, enraged by the attack on Indras, launches more deniable attacks on Alliance space. Geary is forced to tread a fine line between mutiny and obedience while trying to use his fleet to counter the dark ships as the Alliance trembles on the verge of collapse. . .
This is the "Penguin English Library Edition" of "Middlemarch" by George Eliot." did not know then that it was Love who had come to her briefly as in a dream before awaking, with the hues of morning on his wings - that it was Love to whom she was sobbing her farewell as his image was banished by the blameless rigour of irresistible day'" George Eliot's most ambitious novel is a masterly evocation of diverse lives and changing fortunes in a provincial community. Peopling its landscape are Dorothea Brooke, a young idealist whose search for intellectual fulfillment leads her into a disastrous marriage to the pedantic scholar Casaubon; the charming but tactless Dr Lydgate, whose marriage to the spendthrift beauty Rosamund and pioneering medical methods threaten to undermine his career; and the religious hypocrite Bulstrode, hiding scandalous crimes from his past. As their stories interweave, George Eliot creates a richly nuanced and moving drama, hailed by Virginia Woolf as "one of the few English novels written for adult people". "The Penguin English Library" - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.

The West's domination of world politics is coming to a close. The flow of wealth and power is turning from West to East and a new era of global instability has begun. Easternisation is the defining trend of our age - the growing wealth of Asian nations is transforming the international balance of power. This shift to the East is shaping the lives of people all over the world, the fate of nations and the great questions of war and peace. A troubled but rising China is now challenging America's supremacy, and the ambitions of other Asian powers - including Japan, North Korea, India and Pakistan - have the potential to shake the whole world. Meanwhile the West is struggling with economic malaise and political populism, the Arab world is in turmoil and Russia longs to reclaim its status as a great power. We are at a turning point in history: but Easternisation has many decades to run. Gideon Rachman offers a road map to the turbulent process that will define the international politics of the twenty-first century.
