This unique and perceptive history unravels geopolitical intrigues and reveals how they have influenced the authors who fashioned one of the most popular forms of entertainment in the literate world the spy novel. Espionage fiction is one of the most popular forms of entertainment in the literate world and, since its widespread acceptance in the early twentieth century, it has sought to pursue the secret politics of Western social order. Drawn from reality, exposing what is generally concealed, it provides a unique glimpse into the darker, more conspiratorial affairs of state through the use of fictional covert actions, double agents, treason, and international intrigues. It is a carefully crafted, clandestine venue wherein the situations are circumscribed, the moods are forever gray, and the heroes if indeed there are heroes generally emerge as ordinary individuals who believe that virtues such as truth and loyalty are simply matters of convenience. People who are, in fact, not that much different from those whom they oppose. The concept of neutral ground the term adapted from Sir Walter Scott s early nineteenth century Waverly novels originally spoke to the geographic region between two warring armies, a place controlled by neither but marked by fluid jurisdictions drawn by the ebb and flow of strategic influences or battle lines. But with the passage of time, and the refinement of espionage fiction, the definition of neutral ground witnessed a transition, emerging as both metaphor and cautionary note for the thematic conflicts and doubts that flourish in the absence of clear political authority. An intellectual nether region reminiscent perhaps of Cold War Berlin that affords conflicting parties unrestricted rights of passage and where political ideology and literary fiction can and do seamlessly intersect. Yet, in the grander historical sense, the evolution of espionage fiction also reflects the history of a culture for, as the genre evolved, so too did Western society. To explore these historical relationships Neutral Ground: A Political History of Espionage Fiction takes the reader behind the fiction and explores the real-world political, military, and diplomatic events that have consistently and significantly threaded their way through the fabric of the genre. Against this historical timeline, it examines how numerous authors including Rudyard Kipling, Somerset Maugham, Graham Greene, and John le Carra(r) have engaged reality in order to write the espionage novels that have become literary classics and, in selected cases, have also served to alter the course of government policy."

In case you haven't noticed, there's a whole new retail and marketing scene out there. It's complicated, intensely competitive, and changing at a rate that's hard to keep up with. Malls and downtown strips are spawning theme stores such as Warner and Disney. At the Bloomingdale's courtesy counter in New York, staff who speak 30 languages are available to answer questions for international clientele. Wal-Mart has stores in China. Subway ads are considered chic. The game of brand management is getting grittier, with the Coca-Colas and Calvin Kleins of the world overrunning the selling floors and knocking out the smaller niche players. And with all the merchandise tie-ins and pre-release advertising, you don't just go to the movies anymore—you attend "cinematic happenings" that are almost impossible to resist. Huge, costly marketing ploys are creating demand for things that didn't exist before and for things that consumers simply never thought they needed before.

You have to exploit the power of the media and utilize new resources available in technology, research, and marketing to tap into the minds and hearts of a more demanding consumer and capitalize on shifting demographics and lifestyles. To do all this, you need your "corporate constitution," the right marketing plan. Section 1 of the book details the marketing plan, including guidelines on how to get started, how to successfully use good and not-so-good news on the state of your company, and why it's important to know as much as possible about your consumer and your competitors.

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Penn Cage series comes a gripping World War II thriller that “vaporizes almost every cliché about the limits of the genre...[it’s] good enough to read twice”(Kirkus Reviews).

To salvage the planned assault, two vastly different but equally determined men are sent to infiltrate the secret concentration camp where the poison gas is being perfected on human subjects. Their only objective: destroy all traces of the gas and the men who created it—no matter how many lives may be lost...including their own.
